Avon Anew Hydra Fusion Replenishing Serum
Avon Product Review
This video does not do this product justice. I shot this Anew Hydra Fusion Replenishing Serum video after minimal research with only trying the product for a second time.
I had no idea that I would fall in love with this product. During the unboxing video, I was not impressed. The product seemed runny and like it would take forever to absorb. I was skeptical from the start. I enjoy the luxury of a creamy product that feels lavish on my skin. No way was Hydra Fusion going to give me that luxurious feeling or so I thought.
Well…well…well. Anew Hydra Fusion was about to take me by surprise!
First, let me just say it’s true I have been in the sun a lot this summer. The heat, the sunscreen, and the chlorine from the pool was the perfect combination of environmental stressors to cause my skin to take a beating. My skin became dry with a rough texture. Even though I was still using moisturizers. The moisturizers were not able to keep up with the daily onslaught of my fun in the sun.
Cue my introduction to Anew Hydra Fusion Replenishing Serum. Serums are the unsung heroes to skin regimens. They are formulated to permeate through multiple layers of skin and to treat specific skincare concerns.
My previous serum was the Avon Anew Ultimate Dual Elixir. I was really impressed with that product. I didn’t think I would find a serum that could surpass my expectations after using the Dual Elixir.
HA! In walks lil’ miss Avon Anew Hydra Fusion Replenishing Serum. I went through stages of realization with this product.
Obviously, denial. Initial impression was the product was watery and wouldn’t absorb quickly. I thought it will like a feeling like a tight mask on my face. I wanted to hate it.
“Oh okay, I see what we are working with here.” Instead, of my initial impression that it was watery, I realized it was silky and lightweight. It felt refreshing gliding onto my skin. It had almost a cooling sensation. Then at the end, a little kick of firmness once the product absorbed.
Pleasantly surprised. This stuff is actually doing something! My skin feels quenched. It was like my thirsty skin finally got a drink cool water. REFRESHED!
“Alright, I’m going to keep using this to see if it continues to work.” During this stage, I still wasn’t totally sold on this product. I wanted to find the flaws. There was no way that this serum was going to replace my Dual Elixir.
“Oh honey, I’ll do anything for you”, to quote Ashley O. After a week of use the results were in. I moved my Dual Elixir off my shelf and held the Replenishing Serum high like Mufasa held Simba in the Lion King. I set it in its rightful place on my shelf. Okay, I’m being a little dramatic but you get my point.
Here are the deets.
This serum not only refreshed my skin with superior hydration but it had other added benefits. My skin felt more supple. When I pressed on my cheeks there was more of a taught, firm, bounce that sprung back. My skin also healed faster. I had a couple of scaley patches along with some blemishes. Presto chango this made me feel like I had super healing powers like Wolverine. Uh, did I mention my blackheads are disappearing too!
Here are the geek deets.
This product hydrates and defends against environmental stressors. The hyaluronic acid has moisture-binding properties which means it can hold up to 1,000 times more than its weight in water. This means that moisture is going to penetrate the skin. Revitalizing the outer layers of the skin. Increasing moisture by 2 times!
Some more geek deets.
It has raspberry antioxidant. This is a one-two punch for defending your skin. It stops those free radicals from invading your skin and causing premature aging. It tightens and tones. Plus, it hydrates as well!
The verdict is in.
I simply love this product! It took me by surprise, I didn’t want to like it. But the results I’ve seen have been dramatic! I’ll say this I still appreciate my Dual Elixir and will probably switch back to it in the fall or winter. However, in the meantime, during this summer heat, I can not stress enough how important Anew Hydra Fusion Replenishing Serum has become in my skincare routine.
