AVON MARK Product Review: mark Calming Effect Comforting Milk Cleanser

I keep forgetting to mention AVON's Mark product line.  So! To make up for it, here's one of my favourite MARK productsMark Calming Effect Comforting Milk Cleanser.

I like the way it goes on, how it foams and I like the smell which comes from the combo of milk, banana and oat milk.  It's really nice. 

It's also gentle and leaves your face feeling clean and refreshed.  Unlike a few other cleansers I've used with AVON, this one doesn't leave my face feeling tight and dry.

If you have sensitive skin - this is an excellent buy for only $7. 

Click here and check it out along with a look at all the other excellent MARK products.

Catch ya later!

AVON Product Review: Foot Works Big Beautiful Deal!

I intended do a post comparing several of AVON's face cleansers, but then I saw this great deal today and I couldn't pass it up!

Here's a list of what you get and then I'll tell you what I think:

Deep Moisture Cream
Double Action Foot File
Deluxe Touch Toenail Clipper
Deoderizing Foot Powder
Thermal Exfoliating Scrub

I absolutely love the Deep Moisture Cream. I use it every day. It feels so good when you're massaging it into your feet. If you're someone like me whose feet hurt a lot - pick this up. You're bound to love it.

It also works great at keeping the feet nice and smooth!

I also like the Deluxe Touch Toenail Clipper. It took me a bit to get used but once I did I fell in love with them. The padded handle is nice and keeps it from slipping out of your hand.

The Deodorizing Foot Powder is also great!

The only things I haven't had experience with are th Foot File and Exfoliating Scrub. BUT! And I emphasize that big but! I do use AVON's other foot scrubs and love them. They do wonders for your feet and again, the massage feels great.

So get in on this excellent deal! The whole gaboodle is only $10 for a limited time. It would regularly cost you $21.45.

On a side note - this also makes an excellent gift for someone you know who's on their feet a lot. Everyone likes a wee bit of pampering. :]

So hop over to the shop and check it out! You're feet will love you for it! :]

Until tomorrow!

AVON Product Review: Dramatic Firming Cream

AVON Product Review: Dramatic Firming Cream

Yesterday I said I picked up AVON Solutions Nurtura Replenishing Cream. I also picked up AVON Solutions Dramatic Firming Cream to compare the two.

The Dramatic Firming Cream, another name that makes those of us turning 50 sound like we're the 2000 year old woman, has a nice satiny feel and pleasant smell to it. It goes on nice. The firming kicks straight in and your face feels pretty tight.

I'm not as crazy about it as I am the Nurtura Replenishing Cream. It doesn't keep my face as moisturised as the Nurtura. Don't get me wrong, I like it - just not as well.

So what's in it that makes your face firmer, improves elasticity and resilience? Vitamin E, carrot, apricot and arnica oil. AVON says you'll notice the above in 4 weeks. I haven't done the 4 week test yet, because I keep going back to Nurtura. I can say Nurtura makes a difference.

Anyway! AVON Solutions Dramatic Firming Cream scores 4.5 outa 5 five stars. Head over and check out the comments! You'll be surprised that for a cream that only costs $8.50 ($4.99 on sale at the time of this writing with a buy one get one for $1.99) at how many women in their 50's use it and get great results!

Make it a great day!

AVON Product Review: Nurtura Replenishing Cream

Nurtura Replenishing Cream

Just a note before you read on. Remember that every person's skin type is different and that not all creams respond the same with every one who uses them.

Having said that! On with the show! Being an AVON rep I try to test out as many AVON products that I can. Sometimes I use test guinea pigs (my regular customers) to test products for me. Today's product I tested myself.

I've avoided AVON Solutions Nurtura Replenishing Cream for one good reason - it costs a pathetic $8.00. That screams cheap and worthless to me. I like the AVON's nicer stuff, like ANEW Alternative Intensive Age Treatmentt. It costs $32. I like that number.

For night, I'll use either ANEW Retroactive Youth Extending Cream ($27) or ANEW Force Extra Triple Lifting Night Cream (a real insulting name for those of us pushing 50 - lol) at a cheaper $22.

But! AVON had a great deal on the product and I decided why not! So, the product comes, I look at the container and laugh. The container screams "CRAP!!!" It's cheap! It looks cheap! It feels cheap! It's cheap! It's CRAP!!!!

My mom came for a visit. I held it out to her and we both laughed at it.

Once all the laughter died down, I tried it on. I immediately loved the feel. It was thick and creamy and almost a satiny soft to it. Ok. I'm impressed a little.

I put it on my face. It went on soft and smooth. It didn't feel heavy, but nice and soothing. Ok! So, it passed that test, but I was certain within the next few hours my super dry skin would begin to crack and fall off as usual. The hours passed - nothing. hmm.....let's try this baby at night.

The next morning I awoke to find my skin was still soft. Not a dry spot on it. That doesn't happen with either of my ANEW products. I always wake up with dry patches. hmm....maybe AVON cheap isn't so cheap after all!

Lesson learned: Appearances don't always reflect what's on the inside.

I've been using Nurtura Replenishing Cream for several weeks now. I use it both day and night and am loving the results!

How do other customers feel about it? Out of 72 customer reviews Nurtura Replenishing Cream gets 4.8 stars outa 5!

So, go check it out for yourself! Read the reviews and give it a shot! Bet you'll end up as surprised as I did!

Make it a great day!

AVON Product Review: Unisex Slipper w/Memory Foam

A little while ago I slipped across the drive to my mom's house.  On the way back I stepped in her Taco Bell dog's crap.  It was one of those moments when I wanted to squish the little "tea cup" himself under my foot.

Anyway, the shoes that got to experience the squish was my beloved memory foam slippers.  I love these babies.  The sole really is made for outside as well as in.  The inside is nice and comfy and as the name says - the memory foam conforms to your foot.

They're also easy to clean (with the exception of the soles when you step in doggie crap) with a damp cloth.

So, if you're looking for a great comfy gift for under $20 - you're looking at it!

AVON Product Review: Lighted Snowman & Friends Fountain

I love snowmen, especially making them and freezing my little fingers to the bone. Just looking at this little Lighted Snowman & Friends Fountain makes me shiver.

Anyway, there's a couple problems I see with this fountain. For one - kids can come up with all sorts of things about the water falling. For instance, "Hey mom! Look! The snowman's peeing!" or "Hey Mom! The penguins are peeing!" or "Man! Frosty's armpits stink!" You know, the sort of things your kids only say when you have company. :]

The other is it's an evil little invention that's cruel to people with a lack of bladder control: pregnant women, women in menopause and old folks. If one insists on having a little fountain like this, I suggest keeping a box of Depends on hand.

Aside from the side-effects! It's adorable! The lights change from purple to blue, green and red. It's fun to watch and keeps little kids entertained. It's 8" high, sound-activated light up and it makes the water sparkle.

The advantages of this little table water fountain are:

1. The snowman doesn't melt!

2. He will never experience the dreaded "yellow snow" decoration added by your neighbours dog.

3. The penguins are housebroken.

So there you have it! Head over to the store and check it! Order one for yourself! or! Order one as a gift for someone else!

AVON Product Review: Suede Fringe Moccasin Slipper

What's more comfortable then a good pair of moccasin slippers

Moccasins are one of my favourite shoes.  I got my first pair in New Mexico.  Indians sold there goods to tourists getting off the train.  I was one of those happy tourists.  It was a little kids dream.

My next pair, not bought in NM, laced up the front and came just below my knees.  I loved those things.  Then sadly, one day they bit the dust.

These moccasins, on the other hand, are a lot more comfortable than my old ones that were made to wear outside and made you look roughly like Daniel Boone.

These are ladies moccasins and designed for comfort and to keep your feet nice and warm with their cozy faux shearling lining.  Run your fingers over the soft genuine suede and you can feel yourself start to relax.  :]

Want to hear an even better part?  Right now AVON is having a shoe sale and you can get 2 pairs for $19.98! OR!  You can buy one pair and pay $17.99.  I'd go for the 2 pairs.  :]

So, here's the link!  Head over to the store and place your order for a bit of footy comfort!  Don't forget they also make great gifts!

Happy shopping!

AVON Product Review: Pooh & Tigger Cuddle Pillows

I wonder who would win if I posted a poll of who is your favourite in Pooh's friends? My vote is for Tigger. I like Tigger even better than I like Pooh! Tigger is just cool! He bounces! He pounces! He's annoying! He's awesome!

Anyway! AVON has both these little guys as oversized (27") cuddly pillows. They're soft and make great nap buddies for your 3 year old and up! They can also only be bought at AVON.

Hop over to my online store and pick up these special little buddies for your kids or grandkids to snuggle. Picture their happy little faces - how can you resist? :]

AVON product review for the klutz in your life!

We have a friend who just can't seem to stop hitting the wall of her garage when backing in. It's like the wall is a car magnet and sucks the car back to it every trip!

Her son eventually broke down and bought her one of these. Now she only hits the wall on occasion!

Hitting the wall when you have a flashing sign isn't the norm. Our friend has an excuse. She's in her 80's and only 4' 9". She's lucky she can see over the steering wheel, so imagine her backing up! Just the thought makes me want to run.

So, here you go. If you have a wall magnet stationed at the back of your garage that insists on kissing your car or you know of someone who does - welcome to the perfect gift!

The sign is 5" and it stands 47", which is just a foot shorter than our friend!
