Review: Avon Solutions Hydra Beyond Hydrating Gel Cream

I've been using the Avon Solutions Hydra Beyond Cream for around a month now, and I have a confession to make - I've fallen truly, madly, deeply for it! Used as a day or night cream, the gel formula is perfect for my combination skin, meaning this product has earned a permanent place in my skincare cabinet.

My combination skin means that it can be awkward for me to find the right moisturiser, with most being either too heavy for my oily patches or too light to offer any real moisture. However, this became a thing of the past when I discovered this Avon offering, and from my first use the heavens aligned and my skin is in a perpetual state of perfection!

Okay, so maybe I'm taking it a little too far, but I want to express to you how much I have been enjoying using this gel cream. The packaging is pretty cute, neither super special nor offensive, but what is inside is a gorgeous light blue gel which is very reminiscent of the Body Shop Seaweed Day Cream (review here) but without the heavenly scent unfortunately.

The formula is incredibly light, sinking into the skin within seconds and leaving no stickiness whatsoever. You need only a tiny bit to cover your entire face, and once applied it is mattifying to your skin without being drying. Even better, it leaves your skin feeling adequately moisturised and nourished, not lacking in anything at all. This is even the case when used as a night cream, where I normally look for something a little thicker and more hydrating!

Since using it, this gel cream has become my regular day and night cream, meaning that it is super handy for travel and saves room in my skincare cabinet! My skin is soft, smooth and supple enough that I don't think I'll be switching it up anytime soon. A definite must-have for all you combination guys and gals!
