AVON Product Review: Cleansers for 30+

Name of Product:

ANEW Rejuvenate Revitalizing 2 in 1 in Gel Cleanser.


Where You Can Buy It:

AVON product #510-271


Product Description:

1.  Deep cleans and tones

2.  Rejuvenates fatigued looking skin.

3.  Continued use improves skin texture and makes pores look tighter.

4.  Visibly reduces lines.

5.  Dermatologist tested.

6.  Allergy tested.


Who This Product is Intended For:

The ANEW Rejuvenate Revitalizing 2-in-1 Gel Cleanser is designed for women in their 30’s or even late 20’s who are experiencing early signs of aging. 

Early signs: Dull skin, fine lines and enlarged pores.



1.  Unlike soap, it makes your skin feel clean and residue free.

2.  It’s both a cleanser and toner combined, thus saving you money and time in the morning.

3.  Gentle on your skin.

4.  Deep cleansing helps control blackheads and breakouts.



1.  Some customers who have tried the product say if you have very dry skin, you may want to dry a different cleanser.  Others say it doesn’t dry out their skin.

2.  A very small minority of people who are very sensitive to fragrances, think the fragrance is overwhelming, but the majority really like it.

3.  If you have very sensitive skin and know the sensation of feeling like your skin is burning after you’ve used either a cleanser or even a moisturizer, you might experience it with this.  Again, it’s rare, but like with any other product it does happen.

4. It doesn’t remove make-up like water-proof mascara.


Personal Opinion:

Everyone’s skin responds differently to every product on the market.  The same goes for this.  If you look at the Pro’s, remember that some users have experienced the opposite.  If you look at the Con’s, remember that some users have experienced the opposite.

My mom, who’s in her mid-70’s, loves this product, which is designed for people 40 years younger.   If someone else in her age ranged used it, they would probably wonder about her sanity.

I read a lot of product reviews before I ever decide to buy something.  But in the end, the only way I know if the product is worth anything is to try it out myself.  If you don’t like it, you can return it to AVON for a full refund. 

Where You Can Buy It:

AVON product #510-271

Skin Products Reviews: A Soap Free Cleanser

It’s important to use a good cleanser, preferably a soap free cleanser, on your face each day to unclog pores and keep your skin from looking dry and dull.

The Problem With Soap

I say a soap free cleanser because a lot of women still use just a basic bar of soap, like Dove or Ivory, to wash their face with and soap tends to dry your skin out like the Sahara. It also doesn’t get down into the pours like a good regular cleanser is formulated to do.

What a Good Cleanser Should Do

Since I covered moisturizers yesterday and mentioned AVON’s new line of Solutions, I wanted to bring up the subject again of the new Solutions AM/PM moisturizing cleansers.

If you have really dry skin, like me, the AM/PM Maximum Moisturizer is perfect. “84% of women who use it say their skin looks softer and more supple and moisturized.”

The night cleanser has a duel purpose. It’s a rich cleansing cream that removes makeup and the daily buildup of environmental impurities that have collected on your skin through the day.

I find it to be a very relaxing creamy cleanser. It goes deep to clean your pores. I love that part because I ride a Yamaha Scooter and road grime on my face is a real problem, even though I have a face shield on my helmet.

Tips On Removing The Night Time Cleanser.

You can either wash it off with warm or blot it off with tissue. If you have super dry skin, I’d go with blotting it off with a tissue.

The Day Time Cleanser

Unlike the night time cleanser, the day cleanser is an energizing gel that deeps cleans to remove the overnight buildup. I think it’s a refreshing pick me up to the morning.

Tip On Removing the Day Time Cleanser

Unlike the night time cleanser, where you have the option of removing the cleanser with a tissue, with the day time cleanser you thoroughly wash it off with warm water.

Coming Sunday!

Check back Sunday for a list of Cleanser options that are based on your age and what it does for each group!

See you then!

AVON Product Review: Avon Solutions Comparison

Yes, I know I’ve already done a product review of Avon Solutions Dramatic Firming Cream.

And I’ve also done one on AVON’s new Solutions PM/AM creams. But today I want to compare the two because I’ve been experimenting with them.

Last week, I had cataract surgery and with the aid of a contact lens in the opposite eye, I no longer wear glasses. Let me tell ya, glasses hide a million wrinkles. I took one look in the mirror afterward and nearly screamed. For 49 years old, my skin was looking like I was in my upper 50’s. That’s terrifying.

My Experience:

I decided to switch off to AVON Solutions Dramatic Firming cream again. It’s been a week and I’ve noticed an incredible difference in my skin. It’s really tightened up, more than I had expected it would.

Now what’s the difference between the Dramatic Firming cream and the new AVON’s Solution AM/PM? Well, it’s like this, I love them both, BUT! I think the Dramatic Firming cream is better if you want your face to stay in one place as you get older. The new Solutions AM/PM is absolutely brilliant for dry skin, of which I have, but the Dramatic Cream also provides a good amount of moisture and if you combine it with the Nurtura Replenishing Cream for night, I think it does just as good a job, AND for less money. Another reason for my change of opinion, where I chose the new Solutions over the Dramatic Firming cream and Nurtura, is that your skin changes and not just with age. It also changes due to your diet, exercise and sleeping habits.

That’s my experience with the two Solutions. I love them both, but there are certain times when one out does the other.

Now It’s Your Turn:

For yourself, here’s what you need to do to continue making an intelligent decision on the products themselves.

1. Do your own homework.

2. Follow the links to the products, which will take you to my AVON store.

3. Read what other’s have said about the products.

4. Look at the ingredients in the products, if those play a high priority in your decision of what kinds of products you use.

Holiday Fat loss Tip

Welcome to the season-of-eating! Can't ya just feel that waste line expanding even as you read about it? It could just be me because I just downed a couple slices of homemade soy burger veggie pizza. It was delicious.

Anyway, here's some very, very simple tips to help you avoid the big weight gain of the holidays!

1. Watch what you drink. Sometimes our biggest source of calories comes from what we drink.
Drink the ol' eggnog (who can resist), but watch how much.

Try flavoured teas like Bigelow Pumpkin Spice, Celestial Seasoning, or Lipton teas. Use a little local honey to sweeten it instead of sugar.

2. Eat until you're comfortable, nothing more or less.

3. Take a 10 leisurely walk after you eat.

4. Cut back on your carbs. A sure fire way for me to put on the pounds is to carbo load. Focus more on proteins and veggies and be careful how much pumpkin roll, pies and other desserts you eat. Enjoy, but don't overdo it.

Another thought on that. I have a nasty habit on Shabbos of saying, "Yea! I get to eat today and not worry about how much." Problem is - it's hard to behave the next day...and the day after that....and the day after that. Get the feeling I love food?

5. Avoid carbonated beverages. They're chock-a-block full of sugar. Ok. I hear you. The punch is delicious. So, have some! Just not 8 glasses full. Stick to one or two.

Now what about that pic in the upper right corner. That doesn't look one bit like a turkey to fit the season of eating. I know. I didn't want to tempt you. So, I posted the Curves Hot and Cold Combo: Portion Control. It fits the season of portion control. It's also a perfect little kit to take to work or school with you, because it's compact and yet helps you stay on target and not over-eat. It also makes a terrific gift!

Also, as a special treat - you can pick up
"The 5 Secrets to Burning Stubborn Female Fat and Boosting Metabolism." for FREE! You get a terrific workout program and there's photographs that show how each move is done! Enjoy!

Teapots for One!

My baby has arrived! Um...not the biped kind, but my little Cozy Tea for One. I love it! In fact, today has been so crappy that it's completely brightened my day.

How crappy has it been? I awoke to Jeff the Cat peeing on my nylon cooler, Kitty puking milk all over her kittens playroom and her four kittens wondering how it tastes and if they can play in it, and from there on - it was all downhill.

Anyway, a short bit ago my AVON order came, which I forgot was coming, and inside was my Cozy Tea for One! It's sitting to my right, keeping my green tea with honey and milk nice and hot.

I took it with me when I delivered mom's order. She was surprised it's as big as it is. She thought it looked much smaller in the brochure, of course the one in the brochure is only a little over an inch tall. In real life it's much bigger. So for those of you who might be thinking the same thing - the water pot holds 21 fl oz. The cup holds 8 oz. It's also microwave and dishwasher safe.

I think this would make a great gift for any tea lover, and while you're at it, why not buy one for your desk at work and let your co-workers place bets on whether or not you'll manage to knock it over and ruin your work. Insist on getting a percentage of the winning bid. You can't lose!

Off Topic: Read Your Heart Out For Free

I just found out Barnes & Nobles offers free ebooks. Ok, so like you’re probably thinking “I’ve heard that one before, they are really old books or something you won’t normally read anyhow” Right? I did to, but ended up surprised to see authors like James Patterson. Of course you’ll also find classics like David Copperfield! There is a catch though, you have to use their eReader, which is no big deal really.

One more thing! Their reader works on iPhone/iPod Touch, Blacberry, Windows and Mac. Check out the titles yourself.
