OPI Avojuice Skin Quenchers in Mango [Review]



I never knew that OPI; the Nail Giant also dabbled in skincare until I attended the OPI Bloggers Meetup early this year;  Even got a mini bottle in my goodie bag along with a OPI SPiderman Collection nail color in 'Just Spotted the Lizard'!

OPI Claims:
Siken, juicy avojuice Skin Quencher lotions are filled with smooth rich moisturizers plus nourishing avocado and healing aloe extracts. Your skin will drink up the goodness!

My Thoughts:
This mini is a petite bottle which houses 30ml of the lotion, it comes in a pack of six different flavors. This Mango flavor is described as "A tempting Tropical smoothie", and rightfully so, the scent is pleasant and fruity and so typically mango that sometimes I fight the urge to taste it!
The product is a lightweight lotion which is not rich enough to moisturize but at the same time it's non-greasy which is a big plus. It has without a doubt a wonderful scent which is not very sweet and overwhelming; and lasts for hours. You can literally skip your cologne if you're applying this. I generally apply this on my hands only being only 30ml; it makes my hands soft and smooth but not for long. In very dry weather or in winters this doesnot provide adequate moisturization for me so I'd be terming this a summer time lotion when you want something light, non-greasy with a wonderful lingering scent.
The biggest con however for me is that I discovered it has got parabens! While going through the ingredients at the back of the bottle I read the names Isopropylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Butylparaben and Methylparaben. Ever since I've read about the harmful effects of Parabens and sulphates I try to steer clear of them. This disappointed me bigtime since OPI claims to make Toulene-free nail color and to be socially responsible as well!

*Parabens are added to cosmetic formulations to increase their shelf life. They have also been known to cause skin irritation, rash, contact dermatitis, eczema, or allergic skin reactions. In laboratory testing parabens have been found to mimic the hormone estrogen. It is a well known medical fact that estrogen stimulates breast cancer.

Price and Availability:
This mini comes in a pack of six for PKR 990. Available in SuperStores and some Beauty Salons in Karachi. Stay updated on their Facebook page. You can also order online from Daraz.pk

Have you tried the OPI Avojuice Skin Quenchers?
