A friend who sells Avon purchased this for me because I had mentioned my uneven and dry skin tone . She had recommended this along with several other Avon products . Although I do think some of the Avon skin line is pretty good for the price, I was a little less impressed with this item. First of all , it has a bit of an odd odor - not that pleasant at all and I always wonder if it lingers when others smell it . It goes on a bit heavy and greasy too and does not absorb very well even though my skin quite dry - it should be absorbed much more quickly and evenly and it tends to leave a film on my skin which makes applying makeup difficult . I also did not notice much of an improvement in either the texture of my skin or in the uneven skin tone , I much prefer a product that has Alpha Hydroxy or glycolic acids to do either of those things - actually, I think baby oil does a better job than this does and it smells better also and a lot cheaper .
