I remember when I sold Avon 20 years ago one of my biggest sellers was the Avon’s Skin So Soft Bath and Shower Oil and that still stands true even until today. It made me start looking into how this decade long favorite is still rocking after all this time. Let’s face it people love their skin to feel soft and smooth, and once we find something that gives us that feeling we tend to stick with it. Skin So Soft two main ingredients that account for their awesome softness is Jojoba Oil and Mineral Oil. Jojoba oil is an emollient oil that has been known to be a very effective ingredient in a lot of lotions and hair products for it’s moisturizing. It’s known for its ability to smooth the skin and unclog hair follicles. Again being great for hair and skin, removing makeup and even known to help with Alopecia among other benefits.
Now on to the Mineral oil. Mineral oil is one of those things where some love it and some absolutely hate it. Mineral oil is also known for its ability to be very moisturizing and great for itchy dry skin so with the two together is probably why I believe Avon’s Skin So Soft to be a long time favorite. Mineral oil has been know to have a bad wrap because it has its affiliation with petroleum. Some say it clog pores and some grades of it actually contains toxins. But fear not….. because it is used as a cosmetic type product, the cosmetic grade mineral oils are known to be purified.
Personally I love it for so many reasons and have never had problems with it. Of course I love it straight out of the shower while I’m still damp so it really seals in the moisture and leave my skin so soft (hint the name) throughout the entire day. I also love its ability from the original version to ward off mosquito’s. Avon has made no claim that their Skin So Soft is any type of bug repellent but many like myself have found it to be true. Now Avon has actually came out with the Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard version that is totally meant to ward off mosquito’s, deer ticks, gnats, sand flies, biting midges and no-seeums, all while having some SPF in it. But for me the original may not ward of all the others but the mosquito’s are good enough for me.
So there you have it. Skin So Soft is a winner in my book and a winner for so many more across the country.
