AVON Anew Vitamin C Collection | Review

AVON Anew Vitamin C Collection

When I think of Vitamin C in skincare, brands like Ole Henriksen and BeautyRx come to mind. But they aren't the only players in this game! AVON is keeping up with the trends as they just released a range of products aimed at middle-age skin to help brighten your glow this summer. This is not their first time creating a product with Vitamin C, they have a Vitamin C Brightening Serum ($42) already.

AVON Anew Vitamin C Review

Vitamin C Application Tip!

Vitamin C helps to prevent sun damage to skin cells, which is caused by UVA and UVB rays. If you're using a leave-on vitamin C treatment, you can use it under your sunscreen during the day, or at night. Some dermatologists recommend applying vitamin C serum in the morning in order to prevent damage from free radicals that can occur throughout the day.

On the flip side, active ingredients like glycolic acid, alpha and beta hydroxy acids and retinoids do increase sensitivity to the sun, so those are best to use overnight. I always wear SPF when I'm outside for an extended period of time. My cutoff is 30 minutes for sun exposure with no SPF, since that allows me to absorb some vitamin D.

Anew Vitamin C Warming Peel

Exfoliation

Anew Vitamin C Warming Peel $28 CAD
Holy YELLOW! Once you get over the colour of this peel, you won't be disappointed with how it performs. I was honestly blown away by this warming exfoliator right from the start, and it has become a weekly staple. First off, it gets HOT on contact! The exothermic reaction triggered by rubbing and water helps to remove impurities from your pores. There's both physical exfoliation thanks to vitamin C flakes and natural seeds, along with chemical exfoliation to gently slough away dead skin. This peel instantly revives dull and tired complexions, which makes it perfect for a morning cleanse (creates a gorgeous canvas for makeup) or as step 2 of your nighttime routine (remove makeup first with an oil cleanser, then use this!)

Anew Vitamin C Antioxidant Lip Treatment

Lip Care

Anew Vitamin C Antioxidant Lip Treatment $20
This lip treatment is packed with vitamins C and E to condition your pout and keep it looking young. This is such a chic lip treatment, I love how AVON crafts their balms to look like lipstick! This also tastes like orange creamsicle. I do wish it had even a tiny bit of SPF in it, but no worries because they also have the Beyond Color Lip Conditioner in similar packaging with SPF 15.

Avon Get On the Bright Side Brighten Sheet Mask

Sheet Masks

I'm very excited about their sheet masks that cost $7 each. With 5-star reviews online, I'm not alone in thinking these are a great treat! Perfect for prep before a big day or to give your skin a drink of water after too much sun (hi, cucumber mask!) these are very nice options. They sit decently flat on my skin, and coverage is good.
