OPI Avojuice New Packaging

OPI has repackaged their Avojuice Hand and Body Lotion. 

The new packaging looks nice. It now says 24 hour moisture and the bottle is bigger. It was 6.6 fl. oz. Now it is 8.5 fl oz. This is a product we have always loved in the salon, perfect for manicures. It had a light fragrance and was not sticky or greasy when doing a hand massage during a manicure and it didn't leave a heavy film on the nails. 

Many times when a manufacturer changes their packaging, they also change their ingredients. So I took a look at the ingredient lists and compared the Coconut Melon ingredients.

Old packaging, OPI Avojuice Coconut Melon ingredients: water, propylene glycol, dimethicone, cetearyl alcohol, behentrimonium methosulphate, fragrance, phenoxyethanol, caprylyl glycol, poly quaternium-37, allentoin, potassium sorbate, propelene glycol, dicaprylate/dicaprate, benzophenone-4, hexylene glycol, coumarin, benzyl alcohol, PPG-1, trideceth-6, persa gratissima (avocado) oil, tocopheryl acetate, aloe barbadenis leaf extract, isopropyl palmitate, linalool, cocos nucifera (coconut) fruit extract, cucumis melo (melon) fruit extract, CI 19140  (yellow 5)

New packaging, OPI Avojuice Coconut Melon ingredients: water, glycerin, dimethicone, propylene glycol,  cetearyl alcohol, paraffinum liquidum, caprylic/ capric triglyceride, poly quaternium-37, behentrimonium methosulphate, propelene glycol, dicaprylate/dicaprate, phenoxyethanol, caprylyl glycol,  fragrance, allentoin, persa gratissima (avocado) oil, PPG-1, trideceth-6, glycine soja (soybean) sterols, linoleic acid, phospholipids, potassium sorbate,  benzophenone-4, tocopheryl acetate, hexylene glycol, aloe barbadenis leaf extract, coumarin, benzyl alcohol, isopropyl palmitate, linalool,  CI 19140  (yellow 5)

The most noticeable changes are, they added glycerin, paraffin, soybean sterols, linoleic acid (a fatty acid), phospholipids (also fatty acid).

They took out coconut extract and melon extract.

The ingredient change looks good for the skin. It may make too much film on the nails for us when doing manicures though. We will see as we use it. It feels like it takes longer to rub in. It still smells nice.

Your fragrance choices are:

Vanilla Lavender
Sweet Lemon Sage
Violet Orchid
Peony Poppy
Coconut Melon
Cran & Berry
Ginger Lily

It also went from $7.95 to $9.50. You are getting more product with the new packaging, though.

Find OPI Avojuice at salons and at Ulta.
