Avon's Liiv Botanicals Vital Day Cream...

... With SPF 20. 

Moisturiser obsessive I am and being so ridiculously pale I've been wanting a moisturiser I can use in the morning that also has SPF. 

My main issue with day moisturisers so far has been that even ones that claim to be absorbed quickly take ages to absorb properly and well enough for me to put primer on top within the next half hour. FINALLY I've found one that sinks in faster!

Avon's Liiv Botanicals Vital Day Cream can be used under make-up with no problem at all, in fact I can put primer on top of it straight after I've put it on if I wanted to, it doesn't roll off, it doesn't feel sticky, it just feels light and delicate whilst still moisturising adequately for a day cream. 

The box says...

"Formulated with Plant Essence Technology which captures active plant extracts. Dye free. Preservative free. Fragrance Free"

I don't think it's totally fragrance free, it smells vaguely cucumber-y, which I don't have a problem with, in fact it's quite a nice fresh fragrance! 

The packaging is BIZARRE though. It came with the outer box, then a plastic tub (with a bit cut out of the bottom..) that looked like the "official" packaging and another plastic pot (that's thinner plastic, and has the name of the moisturiser and the SPF on it too) that came with a plastic peel off lid on it... Odd! I don't know if it's so that they can use the same outside packaging for all of their products though or something. Anyway, peeled the lid off the bendy plastic pot and then dropped that into the "outer" plastic pod. 

This was £4.50 from Avon, down from the £7 that they say it usually retails for. 

Great value for a really great product!

When I was on holiday the other year I stole my mothers pot of this. My face burns really easily but can get quite oily. It was a lifesaver :)
I think I'm going to have to steal her new pot from her too XD I'm sure you can get refills for the pot, or could at some point.
