In my purse, I carry a small blue zip pouch that contains what I consider my everyday essentials: eye drops, concealer, lip balm, blotting papers, an Ouchless elastic or two, and last but not least, hand lotion. Hand lotion helps combat winter dryness and makes me feel better after I've washed my hands with harsh public washroom soap. However, finding an effective yet yummy-smelling travel-size lotion was always difficult for me--until now.
Months ago, I cashed in a $10 gift certificate to a Robson Street cosmetics shop by picking up a bottle of OPI lacquer in a shimmery fuchsia. I needed something to top off my purchase total, and on a whim I threw in a 15 ml bottle of Avojuice Skin Quenchers Lotion in Peach Juicie.
I've been using my little bottle of Avojuice for the past month and couldn't be more pleased with it. The first thing I noticed about the bottle was how compact it was compared to the mini bottles of Lubriderm that I was used to. Although both brands make their trial sizes in 15 ml bottles, the Avojuice bottle is a lot slimmer and just a tad taller, which means it takes up less room in my purse. The bottle is also easier to squeeze, letting me control exactly how much I want to use at a time.
As for scent and texture, there was no contest: Avojuice has the most tantalizing peachy smell, and the lotion absorbed into my skin quickly and left my hands feeling silky smooth. It left Lubriderm in the dust on both counts. For only $2 a pop, I'm definitely stopping by this store to pick up another bottle when my first one runs out. Maybe I'll try a different scent the second time around.
