Review: O.P.I Avojuice Creams

So a couple of days ago i was asked to a review of the O.P.I Avojuice creams, which made a little appearance in one of my previous post (you can check it out here) So here it is, I've got 3 creams but there are about 10 different types. Take a look
Sorry about the bad quality of this image, it's the best one i found on google.
The ones i own are mango, cran &  berry and jasmine. And basically i thought i would do this review based on 4 categories: smell, hydration,  thickness and price. You can find this creams in different sizes, there's this little ones i just showed you, which are perfect to carry around on your handbag, and a bigger one, which i think you should keep in your bathroom.

Let's begin with the categories
Smell: Cran & berry is definitely my favorite, the frangance of this one is just incredible, is the one i use the most. Jasmine has a flowery scent (of course) i really don't know how to describe it but the word that comes to my mind is soft, i feel like cran & berry has a more powerful odor. And lastly, Mango, I'm very sorry to tell you i don't really like this one, i mean if you have ever eaten a mango, the scent of this one is nothing like a mango, it reminds me more of a peach. Another thing i want to tell you is that even though they smell amazing, this doesn't last very long in your skin, when i use creams i want the fragrance of the cream to stay in my skin (do you understand what i mean?)

Hydration: In winter my hands are so dry, they even "break" sometimes because of the cold weather, so i always use this cream. As soon as i use it my hands are soft again, so i definitely recommend it if you have dry skin.

Thickness: This cream is very light, your skin will absorb it instantly and it doesn't give you that gooey finish that some creams give, like a body butter.

Price: So in my country the little ones cost like 2 dollars and the big one like 12 or something. i do have to tell you that some things in my country are double or even three times more expensive compared to other countries, so maybe it's cheaper in yours. For the little ones i think is a good price, but for the bigger one, i prefer spending a lit bit more money an buy a Victoria's Secret or maybe one from the body shop.

Here's a picture of the creams in my hand so you can the color and texture.

  6. This is a reasonably new blog, but it's already off to a very good start! I haven't heard of these creams before, but they look really good. And the flavours... Definitely something for me to look into!
