Summer Body Care with Avon Senses
Before I became an Avon Representative, Avon Senses was one of my favorite Avon brands back when it was known as Avon Naturals. It is still a fave of mine as well as my customers, especially during the hot summer months due to their lightweight formulas that are available in a variety of floral scents including the Limited Edition summer scent Lemon Blossom & Basil. You can create a long lasting scent by layering your favorite Avon Senses scent with matching shower gel, lotion, body spray & bubble bath.
Body sprays are “a scented spray for the body” (Merriam-Webster Dictionary, 2017). Though many think that body spray & perfume/cologne are the same due to the fact that they both are ways to help you smell nicer, in reality, that is the only similarity they have.
- Body sprays contain more water & alcohol creating a more lightweight formula.
- Perfume scents last longer due to its higher concentration of aromatic oils & extracts.
- Body sprays are less expensive compared to perfumes
- Body sprays are best when sprayed on your body directly, while perfume can be sprayed on clothing.
Applying Body Spray Tips
Many switch to a body spray in the summer as a way to minimize their body odor due to high humidity that occurs during the hot summer months with a lighter fragrance compared to perfume. If used correctly, you can prolong how long the body spray scent will last even though you are sweating. Always keep in mind when applying any fragrance people’s allergies when you are out in public.
Here are some tips from Beauty Health Tips on how you can get the most out of your body spray:
- Hold the spray minimum 6 inches from desired area you are spraying.
- To ensure scent lasting longer, apply to parts of your body where you can easily feel a pulse such as bottom of your throat, behind your knee, behind the ear & inside your elbow.
- Never apply body spray to your face as it may irritate & dry out your skin.
- Do not rub after you spray as this will dilute the concentration of the spray causing it to not last as long. It is best to just leave it along & let dry as it stands.
- Allow the body spray to completely dry on your skin prior to applying clothing.
- Complement body spray with matching shower gel to help prolong the scent even longer.
- Those with dry skin should ensure their skin is moisturized prior to applying body spray to ensure the scent to last longer. (Luckily, Avon Senses also has line of lotions that you can pair with your favorite Avon Senses body spray scent!)
- Make sure to store your body spray away from the sun & in a cool place to ensure you retain the alcohol & fragrance as long as possible.
FYI: Did you know that if you apply a sweet scent to the back portion of the neck when you first wake up in the morning or after a short a nap, you will feel refreshed & in a good mood. A great tip for those cranky pants in the morning.

Shower gels are one way you can clean your body compared to body wash or soap. More and more people, men & women, are beginning to use shower gel as their choice of cleanser. According to MensXP, here are the benefits of using shower gels compared to using a bar of soap:
- Shower gels have a more potent formula of essential oils, fragrances & vitamins. You are more likely to find shower gels that will best suit your skin type & any concerns you may have compared to soap.
- Bars of soap are more likely to be contaminated from other people compared to a shower gel that is packaged in an enclosed bottle.
- Enjoy more choices of floral or aromatherapy scents in a shower gel to help you relax.
- In the long run, there is less unused waste with shower gels compared to soaps where you may lose some from moisture or being left in a soap dish (yucky soap scum you see in your soap dishes)
- You get a much more rich lather with shower gels compared to soaps.
- If someone in your household has a skin condition/disease, shower gels ensure no one else is infected.
- For a more contemporary, stylish look in your bathroom, shower gels are being used more in hotels & other accommodations.
- You will end up needing less time in the shower due to shower gels being much easier to rinse off.
- Soaps tend to dry your skin while shower gels help lock in your skin’s moisture.
