Spring Spotlight Sponsor: Avon with Vanessa {Review and Giveaway} #avonreview #giveaway

Spring is here and that means summer is just around the corner. Ever since we got back from Hawaii, I have been longing for sunny, beach time. One of my favorite summer/beach smells is coconut, it just makes me smile. I have a handful of lotions and sprays that also have the coconut fragrance that help me get through the chilly winter months and into spring.
As part of our Spring Spotlight Sponsor features, we get to work with fabulous people who know our likes and dislikes and send us awesome products to check out. I knew that this spring season, I would be lucky enough to get to work with Vanessa, a beauty representative with Avon, who is also a contributor on MBP.

We have been lucky to have Vanessa be a Spotlight Sponsor for a few years now and we love all the products she has been able to share with us and also to our readers. We also love her as a contributor on MBP, she has great insight on so many other companies and products.
Vanessa and I emailed a handful of times to discuss what we were going to feature for the spring for Avon. Vanessa asked me to browse the current campaign and send her some ideas. I love checking out all that Avon is offering and browsing through all the options, a girl can sure dream. After I had a pretty decent list going, I sent it off to Vanessa as a starting point for what I thought would make a great spring feature.
Here are some of the things I sent her:
 Vanessa responded and told me that she knew exactly what to send, I was happy the list gave her such a great idea. I couldn't wait to see what she had chosen for me, and knew it would not disappoint. Vanessa ordered my item and it shipped directly to me just a few weeks later.
My Avon package is here!
I love that the box reads "Avon, You Make It Beautiful", it just makes you feel good.
My helper S, ready for her job
This box is hard to open
Success! We found an information sheet about Avon on the top. The front side has a cute note that is both positive and gracious. The back side has a bit of information about Avon as a company.
All wrapped up in pink and white tissue paper, gives us a complete present feel.
Next, I found my shipping information with all that was included in my box
Avon always has their packages well packed for safe keeping during shipment. My kids love the big, puffy packing paper.
Next up was Campaign 10's brochure. It is filled with so many neat products, I need to give some of them a try.
And the mark. magalog/campaign 10 & 11. I love the mark. products, they definitely appeal to me and I have always had success with these items.
Now on to the goodies!
I love the stripes on the package, can't wait to see what it holds.
"Online Exclusive! Get your crushing on coconut fix times three with this exclusive set, featuring body scrub, 3-in-1 body wash and body butter, all scented with our irresistible blend of coconut cream, mandarin and fresh orchids."
This set of 3 coconut products has me in a huge grin. S is super excited too, she loves bath products.
"Indulge your delectable spirit with a blend of coconut cream, mandarin and fresh orchids."
This is a 3-in-1 wash for body, hair, and bubble bath. It comes in an 8 FL OZ container and retails for $10 when bought individually. It is a creamy cleanser that goes on smoothly and rinses off well, but leaves a slight hint of scent afterwards. This has been our favorite of the three items, it is super versatile and the fragrance is just right. We have already used half the container between S and myself, I love snuggling her at night and catching the scent in her hair.
The second item is the mark. Crushing on Coconut Body Scrub
"Indulge your delectable spirit with a blend of coconut cream, mandarin and fresh orchids."
This exfoliating scrub is great for the whole body (not the face though). It comes in a 6.7 FL OZ container and retails for $12 when bought individually. It has the same great fragrance the 3-in-1 does and the scrub totally makes my skin feel softer and really fresh. I don't use this one everyday, but you easily could and it will last a long time.
The third item in the Triple Treat is the mark. Crushing on Coconut Body Butter
"Indulge your delectable spirit with a blend of coconut cream, mandarin and fresh orchids."
This body butter is thick, creamy, and goes on smoothly. It comes in a 6.75 FL OZ container and retails for $12 when bought individually. Body butters can sometimes be too thick or even greasy, but this one is not. It goes on really cleanly and absorbs quickly into the skin. The body butter compliments the scrub/3-in-1 very well, as a moisturizing followup. I really like the way my skin feels after using this.
The mark. Triple Treat Bath & Body Trio is available as an online exclusive for just $30. It comes in 4 varieties-
They are currently offering a special of Buy 1 Set, Get 1 Set 50% off.
This Triple Treat Package is great and has me feeling like summer is here. I love the coconut fragrance a ton!

  1. The lemon sugar. I use to wear lemon vanilla from bath and body but they discontinued it :( it was my favorite of all time. I am going to have to track down a local avon lady and sniff it to see it it smells similar.

  2. 'Passionate for Plumberry' Bath and Body Trio would be great to try. I love berry smells.

  3. The Coconut one. looks great


  4. I am looking forward to the "Crushing on Coconut" package
