Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Reviews

avalon organics vitamin c renewal reviews

The Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal range is a series of skin care products that provides photo-aging defense and helps repair skin. The products in this range have a citrus smell but in a few of them (such as the toner), the scent is a little overpowering. The ingredients used are 100% vegetarian, not tested on animals, and are free from parabens, harsh preservatives, artificial colors, fragrances, phthalates, sodium lauryl or laureth sulfate. This article lists reviews of the products plus photos and if you are looking to buy Avalon Organics products, I recommend getting them here instead of the brand’s web site as it’s cheaper (and has cheap/sometimes free international shipping).

What’s in the Vitamin C Renewal range?

The Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal product series contains two cleansers for different skin types, a toner, three different moisturizers,a facial serum, eye cream, and lip balm. Use the table of contents on the right to get to the review that you want.

Refreshing Cleansing Gel Review

The Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Cleansing Gel is my favorite product from the range and also one of my favorite cleansers of all time. I’ve been using this as my main cleanser for a few years now and it has served its purpose well. My skin tends to be oily and I find it good enough for oily/normal skin. It lathers well and does not leave my skin feeling overly dry after I rinse it off. Some people use this to clean off their makeup but I feel it doesn’t get all the makeup off completely so I always use a makeup remover (or jojoba oil!) before this if I have waterproof makeup on.

This product comes in a 4 fl oz (118ml) bottle and it lasts me a few months before I have to get a new one. At under $10, this is really a bargain

Hydrating Cleansing Milk Review

I’ve tried the Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Hydrating Cleansing Milk once but I prefer the renewal gel. The cleansing milk takes longer to rinse off and seems to adhere more to the skin than the renewal gel. The texture of this cleanser is like a lotion except you wash it off. It doesn’t lather as much as the gel version and is more suitable for dry/normal skin. Like the refreshing cleansing gel, this comes in a 4 fl oz (118ml) bottle and lasted a few months.

lumiashe did an awesome review on how this product saved her dehydrated skin and helped a lot with mild acne. You can watch her full review of the hydrating cleansing milk below:

Balancing Toner Review

This toner, like the rest of the products in this series has a citrus-y scent. It is marketed for all skin types. The toner also contains salicylic acid which can help unclog pores.

However, I didn’t quite like it as it left my skin feeling sticky and the citrus scent is kind of strong and lingers. I prefer the Thayer’s Witch Hazel toner which by the way, is alcohol-free.

Rejuvenating Oil-Free Moisturizer Review

The Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Rejuvenating Oil-Free Moisturizer is light on the skin and completely non-greasy. If you have oily skin, this might be a good moisturizer to try.

Many users left reviews stating that it made their oily complexion less greasy and did not give them breakouts like other moisturizers did. I liked this too, but I personally prefer and use pure jojoba oil as my regular moisturizer.

Renewal Cream Review

This is another moisturizer from the same series but is not oil-free oil free like the one above. I like that it contains jojoba oil. Its suggested use states that you should use it overnight for maximum renewal of skin.

This is thicker than the oil-free moisturizer but still absorbs quite well. Some people have reported that it looks chalky on the skin but I haven’t seen the same thing.

Moisture Plus Lotion Review

This is the third moisturizer in the Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal range and you must be wondering why they have so many different moisturizers. Well, this one isn’t oil-free, and unlike the other two, it has an SPF of 15 which means it provides some sun protection. In my opinion, SPF 15 is too low unless you’re just wearing it at home and getting sunlight from walking pass a window :/ I would skip this moisturizer, use one without SPF and use a proper sunscreen instead.

Vitality Facial Serum Review

This facial serum has gotten many raves from users but has also had some bad reviews. In particular, people who are acne-prone and used this found that it caused breakouts. It might be because the serum is too rich for acne-prone skin or that they are using too much.

On the other hand, here’s a video review from someone who saw great results from this serum for getting rid of wrinkles:

Revitalizing Eye Cream Review

The Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Revitalizing Eye Cream has had mixed reviews. Some have found that it lightened their dark circles and even reduced wrinkles while others (like myself) didn’t think it did anything.

That said, I think most eye creams are a preventive and not a corrective form of skin care (i.e. you use it to prevent wrinkles, not to get rid of them) but for a tiny 1 oz  (28g) bottle, this is really expensive and I can’t justify getting it again.

Soothing Lip Balm Review

I don’t think there’s anything special about this lip balm other the fact that it’s part of the same series. It has an orange-y scent, and if you like orange tea, you’ll probably like this. It is pricier than many other lip balms that do the same thing so unless you really like orange or just want to collect every item in the Avalon Organic Vitamin C Renewal range, you probably don’t want to get this.

If you’re looking for a great lip balm, I recommend getting one of these instead (coming soon).
