BEAUTY REVIEW: Avon Anew Sunscreen Body Mist Lotion

prod_1110485Talk about double-duty — AVON has created a moisturizing sunscreen mist that the company claims will make skin appear more toned.

THE HYPE: AVON says this sunscreen will not only offer UVA and UVB protection but it will also reduce dark spots on the skin and make it appear visibly more firm.

THE TEST: We liberally applied this product all over our skin 15 minutes before sun exposure (as the package directions instructed us) and waited for the toning properties to take hold.

THE VERDICT: While this sunscreen mist is ultra lightweight, non-greasy and easy to apply, we’re not sure it has succeeded in making us appear younger or more “firm”…maybe this is an affect that occurs with prolonged usage. What we did love about this new sunscreen is that it’s oil-free and goes on in seconds flat. It’s also extremely water resistant and absorbs quickly into the skin. So, whether or not it turns back the clock we’ll be toting this product around in our purses this summer.
