Environ’s AVST 1 is a handy product to have in your office drawer. Don’t let the packaging fool you; inside a basic-looking white and orange bottle is a moisturiser which is light and refreshing.
After a day in the office under the full blast of air conditioning, skin can feel dry – the last thing you need when re-applying make-up before heading to an evening event. I found the AVST 1 to be pleasantly surprising. The cream absorbs quickly, and doesn’t leave your skin looking greasy. It is definitely a moisturiser for the day time.
In terms of packaging, the moisturiser comes in a mid-sized bottle. It might not be the most convenient size for your make-up bag, but it is light to carry if you do have a bit more space. The AVST creams are produced using vitamin A and antioxidants including vitamins E, vitamin C, Green Tea Extract, Honeybush and Rooibos Tea Extracts, Resveratrol and Beta-Carotene. I started on the level one cream, the introductory moisturiser, but the range goes up to level five. The vitamin concentrations of A and C get stronger as you move up the range.
You can find Environ’s products online here or through a number of beauty websites in the UK. Overall, MT gives AVST 1 a hearty thumbs up.
