I’ve grown fond of Avant as a brand. What really stood out to me when I initially read up on them was that they carefully select science-based actives to create ground-breaking formulations. Avant has redefined beauty by producing natural and high-performance products that guarantee real results over time.
Today I’m sharing my experience with the Glycolic Acid Vivifying & Firming Body Treatment that retails for $129.
About the product
A Vivifying & Firming Treatment enriched with Glycerin, Glycolic Acid and Mica aiming to help tone the skin and detoxify skin.
The combination of ingredients and their benefits:
• Glycerin – helps intensively hydrate and soften the skin making it the perfect remedy for dry skin.
• Glycolic acid – aims to penetrate the skin deeply boosting its firmness whilst smoothing lines and wrinkles, dullness, and oiliness for a youthful appearance.
• Mica – this ingredient has shimmering properties which reflects light from the skin for a smoother, softer and more radiant complexion.
The design of the outer packaging is kept sleek, practical and fuss-free. I’ve actually discovered that the carton they use for their outer packaging is made from 100% recycled fibres.
The brown glass bottle has a black pump is also kept sleek and contains 100ml of product.
Benefits / Claims
• Aims to boost skin firmness
• Works to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines
• Contributes to soften skin
• Helps intensively hydrate skin
The actual cream has that Avant signature scent. A subtle luxurious scent, that lingers beautifully on the skin. I’ve only used a handful of their products and their scent is definitely distinguishable.
Although rather thick, this cream spreads easily and absorbs really well. There’s no tacky feeling or greasy residue once the product has absorbed.
It’s suggested to use a coin-sized dollop of cream in your palm and evenly distribute it on targeted parts of your body in an upwards motion.
I apply this product on my legs, torso, upper arms, feet, hands and elbows.
What I’ve noticed so far is that my dull skin (specifically my lower legs & thighs) seem invigorated and feel smoother with a more youthful radiance to it. My elbows and heels feel well hydrated and look a whole lot smoother.
My only critique would be the pump bottle since the formula is quite thick. I had trouble pumping product through the pump and feel that a tube container would’ve been better suited.
Avant’s ingredients are carefully chosen for both health and beauty benefits. This is one of the many reasons why I adore this brand.
The Glycolic Acid Vivifying & Firming Body Treatment is a gentle body exfoliator and moisturiser in one. It tightens and smooths out tired dull-looking skin. The combination of ingredients overtime treats the skin’s moisture barrier to ensure that body cream penetrate deeper into the skin.
I’ve only been using this product for a short period and as with any skincare products, one needs to be consistent in order to see results. I have high hopes and really excited to see the difference with the overall look and feel of my skin over the next few weeks.
