Avon has just introduced their NutraEffects collection, which uses Chia Seeds and other potent natural ingredients to hydrate skin. I was sent some of these products for my honest review.
A seed is one of nature’s most powerful creations, it’s the source of life itself. Avon NutraEffects has harnessed this power into its breakthrough Active Seed Complex. The complex is made with Chia Seeds which are used as the hydrating base ingredient across all of the products within the range. The powerful hydration quality comes from the blend of Chia Seeds which can hold up to 12x their weight in water and are rich in omega 3 fatty acids. In addition to this, each NutraEffects formula is then blended with other nutrient rich seeds and skin loving antioxidants to target one of four skin care needs: hydration, balance, radiance, and signs of aging. The combinations deliver healthier, more beautiful skin from day one. All products are suitable for sensitive skin, hypoallergenic, and paraben- and dye-free. The collection includes:
Key Ingredient: Chia Seed
Key Benefit: Hydration

I was sent products from the Balance and Ageless collections to try:
nutraeffects Ageless Day Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 20
nutraeffects Ageless Night Cream
nutraeffects Ageless Eye Cream
The Ageless collection products are creamy and hydrating, but don’t leave my skin greasy. They are also fragrance free, and very gentle on my sensitive skin. The Day cream is lighter than the night cream, and I love that it has SPF in it. The eye cream sinks right into my skin and smooths the skin on my eye area.
I have noticed that my skin is smoother and has better texture. My fine lines do look less noticeable, too.
nutraeffects Balance Day Cream SPF 15
nutraeffects Balance Night Gel Cream
My skin is combination as well sensitive and aging (fun). So the Balance collection works for my skin when it is a bit oily. It’s more of a gel texture and lighter than the Ageless collection, and will be perfect for me when it gets warmer. But for those who are oily all of the time, I think it would be a great everyday collection.
This has a light fragrance, but it doesn’t irritate my skin at all and it does give a nice matte finish!
I think for what these products do for the skin, the price is amazing! Natural and potent skin care usually comes at a much higher price point.
