Having Trouble Finding A Lipstick

Now that many of us are back into the routine of a new school year, is it time to update your lip color.  

With social isolation in effect, it’s more difficult to find that “perfect shade”.  I recently had a customer call to see if she could get some samples.  When I told her about the virtual “try it on” she was so excited.  She has tried 3 different colors, and just couldn’t find that perfect color.  

“Try it on” gives you the chance to experiment with different colors.  When I was experimenting, I found a couple colors that I would have never bought for myself, but really liked the way the color looked when I tried the “try it on” tool.

So how can you experience the “try it on” virtual lipstick tool.  It’s actually pretty simple.  

  1. Go to the E-Store, and when you open up a lipstick you’ll see the “try it on” button under the picture.                                                                                                            
  2. A) If you have the site settings set to block the camera, you can upload a photo of yourself.  (I have a selfie photo saved on my phone)                                                                                                                                                                          B) If your sight settings allow camera access, simply follow the directions on the screen
  3. Choose the color you want to “try on” and wala it shows up on your lips.                                                     

It’s really that simple.

If you’re looking for a “perfect shade” of lipstick give the “try it on” tool a try, and let me know what you think.

How do I fix my dry, cracked heels?

Recently, several people have asked me, “How do I fix my dry cracked heels?”. I  know it’s still summer weather, and that means sandals, but no one wants to have ugly cracks on your heel as you walk away.

In addition to the unsightly cracks, the pain is sometimes unbearable.  I mean, you can’t even step down on your foot without almost wetting your pants.  No kidding.  

If you’ve never experienced a dry cracked heel, then consider yourself lucky.  But, if you have, I totally understand, I’ve been there myself. 

First and foremost, the inability to walk due to the pain needs to be taken care of.  For me that means popping a couple Tylenol (well generic acetaminophen), and a 4% Lidocaine topical cream.  Yes, the same stuff, in a much higher concentration, the doctor uses before he stitches you up.   4% Lidocaine is the highest you can get over the counter.  I suppose you could use a topical benzocaine cream or gel (like what’s in orajel), but I usually have Cracked Heel Cream with 4% Lidocaine in my cupboard, so that’s what I use.

Once the pain is under control, and you can walk again, popping pills is not a long term solution.  So the problem of the dry, cracked heel must be fixed.  I have heard, and read about good results from a foot soak made by mixing warm water, listerine and vinegar.  I suppose any form of medicated mouthwash would work, and all agree, apple cider vinegar was better, but white distilled vinegar would also work.  The mixture should be equal parts of each in a basin large enough to put your feet into. You could probably also use an electric foot bath, the kind that is like a mini whirlpool.  

Now onto the soaking.  Believe it or not, soaking your feet for long periods of time is NOT recommended by podiatrists (foot doctors).  The main reason,  prolonged soaking can lead to maceration (which is when the skin has prolonged exposure to moisture and begins to break down).  That’s really the last thing you need, so limit the soaking.  My recommendation is about 10-15 minutes, but absolutely no more than 20 minutes at a time.

After you’ve soaked your feet, I use a foot or nail file rather than a pumice stone.  Many times the dry, cracked heel is harder than the pumice stone, so it’s of little effect to remove the dry skin.  You can purchase foot or nail files at almost any store.  I prefer a nail file that has a grit of 100/180 or better yet if you can find one with a grit of 80/100.

Now don’t expect this to fix your dry, cracked heels the first time.  It took a couple of months for your heels to get cracked, so it’s gonna take some time to get them healed.

Besides being unsightly, and painful, cracked heels could possibly become infected.  Although this is rare, the cracked skin could be deep enough to bleed.  Then you have an open wound to deal with.  Let’s hope yours aren’t that bad, but believe me when I say it can happen. My dry, cracked heels were actually at that point several months ago, but thank goodness they did not become infected.  

If your heels are cracked deep enough to bleed, I would skip the foot soak,  after all, putting your foot in a basin of water is just inviting bacteria to flow right into your open wound.

If your dry cracked heels are infected, the best remedy is a topical antibiotic.  Yes you could use something like Neosporin (or a generic triple antibiotic) ointment, but the latest recommendation from doctors is to use bacitracin.  The difference is that Bacitracin has 1 antibiotic in it, while Neosporin has 3 – Bacitracin, Polymyxin, and Neomycin.  (Some people may have allergies to the triple antibiotic, which affects healing). I actually use Cracked Heel Cream  it contains benzalkonium chloride, which is an antiseptic that is effective against a wide range of bacteria, yeasts and fungi. 

So now that we’ve discussed how to take care of the pain and cracks on your heels, it’s time to address the real problem.  

The answer actually lies in the question.  “How do I fix my DRY cracked heels?”.  Simple, add some moisture.  That can be in the form of a lotion, a cream or an ointment, but the key is to be consistent. (You can read about the differences in my post Ointment or Cream Which Should I Use)  For me that means every morning before I put on my boots, for you it might mean every night before you slip on your comfy slippers.  Regardless of when, it’s important to do so everyday until your heel is no longer dry and cracked. Since that day hasn’t come for me yet, I slather the cream on every morning.  The last thing I want to do is tiptoe around in pain because my heels are dry and cracked again. 

As with many other types of foot problems, fixing dry cracked heels is part science, part asking for suggestions, and part trial and error to figure out what works best for you.

The Holy Grail of Face Perfecting

Who has time to spend getting the perfect face each and every morning.  I certainly don’t, and I’m betting you don’t either.  What we want is a simple, quick, easy “fix it”.  Something that smooths out fine lines, tightens pores, blurs imperfections, reduces shine, and For me, I also want something that protects my skin from sun damage, and moisturizes. 

That’s a long list of demands. What if I told you, one simple, inexpensive product could do it.  I mean, offer shine-stopping, pore-diffusing, line-blurring and sun-protection in one simple, easy step.  Seems almost to good to be true, almost. 

Meet the holy grail of skin perfecting.  The Magix Prime  primer smooths the way for flawless, all-day wear. 

It’s like a magician in a tube.

With ingredients such as Rose Extract and Fleece Flower Extract it can Instantly create a soft- focus matte finish, that feels  weightless and sheer.  It has thousands of microspheres that perfect the small imperfections we all have, regardless of age or skin tone.  And guess what it’s colorless, so anyone can use it.

It can be worn alone, under your makeup, and even over your makeup.  What?  This really is a multipurpose, simple, quick, easy “fix it”.  And it doesn’t cost a fortune.  I know I’ve been looking for something like this, and I bet you have too.

Are you ready to embrace what lies ahead?

With the start of another school year, so many of us are hoping life gets back to “normal”.  But what does normal really mean.  For each of us, it had a completely different definition.

For me it means figuring out how to navigate in a new, different and exciting direct selling climate than it was 6 months ago.  Social, Face to Face interactions is what my business was founded on, and how I’ve been doing things for the past 7 years.  Today is much different.  Face to Face contact is now a thing of the past.  Social interaction is now a thing of the past. And yes, “Ding Don’t it’s Avon” is a thing of the past. 

So what does the future look like?  Over the past 6 months, that question has been asked again and again, with no precise answer.  

Now that school has started back up, some type of routine, some type of normalization, some type of moving forward is upon us.  But the lingering question in most of our minds is how do we get back into a routine, get back to being normal and get back to moving forward.

I think we must first grieve for the life we remember from before, because this new normal is not the same.  What was one out routine, what was one our normal, is no longer possible.  And just like all grief, we have denied there was a problem, we’ve been pissed, we’ve been depressed, we’ve even bargained – thinking of we could just “slow the spread” it would fix everything.  Guess what?  Our old life is gone, and now we are ready to embrace what lies ahead. (Well maybe)

So my question to you is, are you ready to embrace what lies ahead?  Are you ready to discover your new routine, discover your new normal, and how you’re moving ahead.

Drop a comment below, or even private message me.  I’m interested in learning how others are adapting.

Resurfacing Smoothing Fluid

Today’s in-depth, deep dive, review is Resurfacing Expert Smoothing Fluid.  Although, I don’t have much experience with the Resurfacing Fluid, (I have used one complete bottle), I can say I did notice a difference in the texture of my skin.  It felt smoother, which is what many of the customer reviews also claimed.  The other noticeable difference, for many who used it, was a decrease in the size of their pores. 

This silky smooth formula contains our concentrated blend of professional-grade anti-aging ingredients, including alpha-hydroxy-acids that are primarily used to exfoliate. 

Although, Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids (AHAs) are primarily used to exfoliate, they can also help promote collagen production, and help correct discoloration. AHAs can improve the appearance of surface lines and wrinkles even help prevent acne breakouts.

Studies have shown that Resurfacing Expert Smoothing Fluid is 79% as effective as a professional microdermabrasion (without the same irritation!).  It can transform skin to look younger, smoother and revitalized, as quick as overnight, and after 3 days, many noticed retextured, smoother and more radiant skin.  And it’s not sticky, or greasy and has been tested by a dermatologist.

The fluid can be used every morning and evening.  But those with delicate or highly sensitive skin may not be comfortable using this product, as the Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids may cause irritation.  The fluid can be applied to the tips of your fingers, then smoothed upward and outward over cleansed, dry face and neck. 

As with all alpha hydroxy acid(s) (AHA), this Fluid may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and increases the possibility of sunburn. 

So if your wanting to find smoother skin, with less visible fines lines, try the Resurfacing Fluid.

Fuller, longer, thicker eyelashes at home

As we age, our hair begins to look thinner and appears to less full,  that includes our eyelashes and eyebrows.  What if there was a way to “reactivate” our sparse eyelashes and eyebrows?   Well there is, Anew Clinical Unlimited Lashes Lash & Brow Activating Serum.  With all the focus on thick full eyelashes, and eyebrows now you can get those lush lashes and full eyebrows without heading to the salon for extensions.  Yes that’s right, your own lashes, can appear full, lush and thick.

Anew Clinical Unlimited Lashes Lash & Brow Activating Serum  has a unique peptide blend enhanced with botanicals, and is designed to dramatically enhance the look of your lashes. 

During an 8-week consumer-perception study, 84% of women agreed lashes looked longer and fuller, and 81% of the women who participated in the study agreeded  their lashes were visibly healthier.   

Many began to see results in 4 weeks.  My own results really surprised me..

The biggest difference I actually noticed was in my lower lash line.  They appeared to be longer, and fuller. And the best part, at least for me, was how simple it was too use.

For  my lashes, I simply applied the serum to my upper lashes, just like I do my liquid eyeliner, every night.  I applied right after I cleaned and dried my face, before any treatments or moisturizers. I did not put anything on my lower lashes. The serum is transferred to the lower lashes when we blink.  The Activating serum is also economical, one dip into the vial is enough serum for both upper eyelids. My first tube lasted about 3 months, with daily use.  Since then I’ve been using it every other day or so.

For brows, the same theory  applies. One dip should be used for both sides.  The applicator is a thin brush, and simply apply  on clean, dry skin as you would a brow pencil to the natural shape of your brow. 

So instead of heading to the salon for extensions,  “reactivate” sparse eyelashes and eyebrows.  Give  Anew Clinical Unlimited Lashes Lash & Brow Activating Serum a try, as let me know if youe lashes and eyebrows appear fuller and thicker.

This unique breakthrough fits perfectly into any anti-aging routine.  Wondering, where to fit this into your routine?  Since it’s as treatment, it should be applied after cleansing, before to moisturizing. The Infinite Lift Targeted Countouting serum helps gives you visibly lifted, firmer, natural-looking skin.

Our first holistic approach to anti-aging skincare

Our first holistic approach to anti-aging skincare with skin-nourishing ingredients, is now available online.

Isa Knox Anew LX Ultimate Rejuvenating Serum is infused with,Phenol a trichloroacetic acid that is useful in penetrating through layers of skin to get rid of old or damaged skin.  Our unique extract, harvested at its peak from hand picked rare peonies and processed through an exclusive technology. The New formula is  enriched with anti-aging ingredients that are specially formulated to visibly diminish wrinkles and improve the appearance of skin texture.  It helps with skin tone and clarity, creating a rejuvenated look beyond the ultimate.

The New formula makes your skin look and feel lifted and dramatically tighter.  It’s been found to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Since this formula is so new, I haven’t even a chance to even try it. But 9 out of 10 women said it made their skin look and feel dramatically smoother,  based on a 7 day consumer preception test.  

In addition to the Phenol, an trichloroacetic acid I ingredient that has the ability to penetrate through layers of skin to get rid of old or damaged skin.  The formula also contains Ceramide, an ingredient known to protect skin’s moisture barrier while boosting hydration to keep it looking firm and smooth. It also contains Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) – which helps to visibly tighten pores and diminish the appearance of dullness. Think we couldn’t fit any more in to the new Isa Knox Anew LX Ultimate Rejuvenating Serum, Squalane, has been shown to helps replenish skin for a soft, velvety, smooth appearance.

Needing an extra boost to your skin?

Do you ever feel like you just need a bit more from your skin care?  Like you need an extra boost to your routine?  If that sounds like you, I’ve found that added boost by using the Anew Clinical Extra Strength Retexturizing Peel

The perfect is Avon’s most concentrated pee. It’s like having a professional-grade treatment right at home. The formula is on an easy to use pad that helps to retexturize and resurface skin in one easy step.  

My first thought were doubtful, until I tried it.  My face looked  fresher, and definitely felt much smoother.  It also seemed like my fine lines around my eyes were smaller.  

The pads contain both glycolic acid, which stimulates collagen production, causing a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation in the skin by increasing cell regeneration.  An alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), which had been shown to weaken the ‘cellular glue’ that makes dead skin cells stick together, encouraging exfoliation and revealing healthy, younger skin cells,” 

Our formula is Oil-free, fragrance-free, phthalate-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, and petroleum-free. It has been dermatologist-tested and allergy-tested.

It’s recommend to use the pads every other day (or less frequently if you have complications).  It’s best used on a cleansed, dry face. And the texture side of the pad is used against the skin.  The formula is designed to be left on the skin, so there’s no need to rinse.

Some people may feel a brief tingling sensation after application – a signal the product is already starting to work. If this occurs, wait 15 minutes after cleansing, or try using the product more sparingly.  The formula, due to the alpha hydroxy acid, this product may increase your sensitivity to the sun, increasing the likelihood of a sunburn.

So if you’re needing an extra boost to your routine?  Give the Retexturizing Peel a try.

Helping to Soften Fine Lines and Wrinkles for over a Decade

It seems like the Clinical Advanced Wrinkle Corrector has been around for ages. (Well maybe not that long). But based on customer reviews, from over a decade ago, the Wrinkle Corrector had been helping women soften fine lines and wrinkles while plumping their skin for quite a long time.

It has something to do with 4D Wrinkle-Reverse Technology (I have no idea what that means) but I do understand that it visibly improves skin’s appearance and increases its elasticity. Based on scientific studies the results were seem in 28% of the participants.

On addition to softening lines and wrinkles the Wrinkle Corrector also helps restore and maintain skin’s youthfulness with plumping features included into the formula. It is Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic, and has been tested for allergies and when tested by dermatologist

And it’s Free from Alcohol, phthalate, paraben, and sulfate.

Since it’s a treatment, it’s best applied to clean skin, focusing on those fine lines and wrinkles, and don’t forget about your neck. Although, the ANEW Advanced Wrinkle Corrector has  been helping women soften fine lines and wrinkles for over a decade, it is still just as effective today.

Two-in-One System For Eye Lift

As we continue our review of skin care products, I figured the clinical category would be the  best one to review next. 

Let’s start with one of the products I’ve seen good results from.  The Eye Lift Pro Dual Eye System is a two part system, a gel based and a cream based.

It’s actually a two-in-one system for a complete eye lift and for anyone wishing to help treat or prevent the telltale signs of aging, those pesky little lines that seem to creep up at the corners of our eyes.

The Eye Lift Pro has shown to provide  dramatic lift in about a week of continuous use.  The system helps make eyes look and feel dramatically firmer and can virtually erase the sign of aging on eyes. 

I almost immediately noticed a decrease in the fine lines at the corners of my eyes, and my

eyes felt tighter. Especially helpful on those mornings when I wake up tired from a late night the night before.

It’s also been shown to help visibly reduce the darkness under our eyes, and helps to keep eyes looking “wide awake”. And it helps with the sagging eye look we all experience from thing to time.

The formula has been allergy-tested, dermatologist-tested, and is even ophthalmologist-tested.  It’s also fragrance-free, alcohol-free, phthalate-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, and petroleum-free 

With all this it may seem like it’s hard to use, but in reality it’s actually quite simple.  As part of your regimen, first cleanse the skin, then apply Eye Lift Pro after your serum but before your favorite moisturizer. Simply apply the gel to eyelid and brow bone area then apply the cream to under eye area, including upper cheekbone. I always add a bit more to the corners on my eyes to help diminish my crows feet.  Yes it’s really just that simple to use this two-in-one system for a complete eye lift. 

The “Holy Grail” of skin care

Harnesses the power of retinol with Clinical Line Eraser.  Retinol is quite honestly the ” holy grail” of skin care treatments for anti aging and making fine lines and wrinkles disappear.  I try many skin care treatments so I can give accurate reviews, but after I have finished a series of treatments, I find myself returning to the Clinical Line Eraser

The formula is lightweight and fast-acting due to an exclusive Amino Acid complex that delivers wrinkle-fighting action. I also prefer to use something in a pump rather than a cream. That is just a personal preference, probably because I don’t have to do my finger into a jar everyday.

The Anew Clinical Line Eraser has been shown to be twice as fast  and is even more powerful at fighting wrinkles than a leading dermatologist-inspired treatment. And 100% of women that have tried the Line Eraser showed improvement in the look of fine lines and wrinkles

It is suitable for all skin types (normal, dry, oily, combination) and had even shown to be safe for sensitive skin.  Because it’s a pump the formula is lighter and glides on effortlessly and absorbs quickly.  Which is an added bonus.

Because of the retinol it had clinically been shown to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles in just days, not weeks or months.  This helps provide an overall youthful appearance.  I usually notice a difference within about 3 days off continued use.

As with all Avon skin care it’s free of  pathalates, parabens, sulfates,  and petroleum.  The Clinical Line Eraser is also Fragrance-free, oil-free, and alcohol-free. It has been tested for allergies, and is non-comedogenic (formulated so it does not block pores) and non-acnegenic. 

When using this retinol treatment, I apply to my cleansed face and neck Before my moisturizer. Although this formula can be used in the morning Retinol has been shown to increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and possibility of sunburn, Therefore I prefer to use it in the evening Only.  And I use a sunscreen daily. 

Because of the Retinol I recommend  limiting your sun exposure while using this product, and starting off  sparingly, using a tiny amount or only using the Line Eraser every other day until your skin accommodates.  Some people may experience redness and irritation with retinol, so I recommend doing a spot test, behind your ear, for a few days before applying to your entire face.

For me, Retinol is quite honestly my ” holy grail” of skin care to make fine lines and wrinkles disappear.  

Infuse Skin with Instant, Deep and Lasting Hydration

It’s a new, revolutionary combo of power-packed ingredients that infuses your skin with instant, deep and lasting hydration, and defends it from environmental stressors.  What could it be? Anew Hydra Fusion Nighttime Facial Treatment..

 This revolutionary formula also contains raspberry seed extract, a power antioxidant that helps defend skin from environmental stressors and protects skin from damage caused by free radicals.

In addition to the hyaluronic acid and raspberry seed extract,  shea butter beads and infused throughout the formula.  Shea butter helps to nourish and strengthen skin’s moisture barrier.  In the past Avon had another nighttime treatment with shea butter and hyaluronic acid, that was my all-time favorite bedtime treatment. This new revolutionary formula Hydrafusion Nightime is a perfect replacement.  In addition to the shea butter beads and hyaluronic acid, I loved, the raspberry seed extract helps protect and repair my skin from the environment.

And, of you’re looking for something that smells amazing, something that will help you slumber off into a good night’s sleep, the relaxing rose scent should do the trick.

I’ve told you what’s included in the formula, but let’s take a minute and talk about what’s not include.  This formula is Phthalate-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, petroleum-free.

With all this inclement in a single jar, it really is a new, revolution of power-packed ingredients that infuses your skin with instant, deep and lasting hydration.

The perfect serum for visibly plumper skin

Meet our highest concentration of moisture-boosting hyaluronic acid  Hydrafusion 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid .  It’s the perfect serum for visibly plumper, bouncier skin.  When I tried it I noticed how it just takes a small amount.Dispense one drop of the serum into palm. Using your fingertips, gently smooth the serum onto cleansed face in an upward and outwards motion, avoiding eye area. Even though I only used it in the evening, you can apply twice a day in the morning and evening, or use as needed to spot treat dry areas. 

Hyaluronic acid is a super ingredient that acts like a sponge holding up to 1,000 times its weight in water for intense, lasting hydration. It’s your rescue treatment for those extra dry areas that need saving!  

The  Hydrafusion 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid has three different molecular sizes of hyaluronic acid so it is able to reach multiple layers of skin’s surface.

As with all Avon products it is Hypoallergenic and has been Dermatologist-tested.  It is a perfect addition to any skin care routine of any skin type.

Snow Cream melts into your skin

While this might look like a hand cream, it’s really an incredible face cream.  Hydrafusion Snow Cream has a unique texture that seems to “melt” into your skin.  One gal told me she keeps it in her purse for those times throughout the day when she feels like she needs an extra boost of moisture.

Created with Hyaluronic acid- An ingredient that can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water.  The Snow Cream can be used for immediate, long-lasting skin hydration and as a bonus it visibly plumps skin to conceal those pesky fine lines and wrinkles.  The hyaluronic acid, is a super hydrator that is naturally found in skin.  We loose  hyaluronic acid over time as we age, so when we replenish it our  skin looks smooth, refreshed and vibrant.

Another key ingredient, raspberry antioxidant, is known to help boost skin’s ability to  repair damage caused by environmental factors and stressors that we face in our everyday life.  The raspberry antioxidant also helps defend our skin from these environmental stressors to keep it looking healthy and glowing

Even though this unique “snow” cream is quickly absorbed it’s still able to deliver 72 hours of continuous hydration.  That’s a full 3 days.  It has been allergy and dermatologist-tested; hypoallergenic.

It’s recommended to be used in the morning and in the evening, after cleansing and using a serum.  The Hyaluronic Acid 1.5% would be a perfect match to use under the Hyaluronic Snow Cream and get that “melt” into your skin feeling right before going to bed, or first thing in the morning.

A revolutionary combo of power-packed ingredients infuses skin with instant, deep and lasting hydration, and it helps defend your skin from environmental stressors.

Avon was the first to bring cutting-edge microbubble technology to the mass market with this Replenishing Serum. Over 10,000 microbubbles deliver a pure and potent form of raspberry antioxidant.

The powerful yet lightweight formula infuses skin with deep hydration. My skin immediately felt smoother, and softer with the first use.  It’s even lightweight enough to use as a touch up in the middle of the afternoon, or evening.  And it’s effective even over makeup.

The formula Contains hyaluronic acid, which I understand sounds counter  intuitive to common sense, but hyaluronic acid is a super hydrato. It naturally occurs in skin, but is  lost over time.  Hyaluronic acid  holds more than 1,000 times its weight in water and leaves soon feeling smooth, refreshed and vibrant.  

In addition to the hyaluronic acid, the serum contains raspberry antioxidant, a potent ingredient that helps defend skin from environmental stressors.  This defense helps to keep skin looking healthy and glowing

Gonna Add this one too my cart

So we’ve reached the last day of my  5 part “mini series” review of the Avon ANEW Vitamin C  product line.  Today I’m discussing the new Vitamin C Illuminating Priming Moisturizer (boy that’s a mouth full).

If you’ve followed along with the other blog posts, you already know how impressed I am with the Vitamin C line up, so you probably already have an idea of what I’m gonna say.   Well maybe not.  I have to be completely transparent, I’ve only tried this primer a couple of times, and I actually used another primer (Magix with SPF) over the top of it.  Not something I normally do, but it’s July, and I’m outside quite a bit.

So what does my website say about the Vitamin C Primer… It says, the vitamin C Primer “is made with brightening vitamin C and skin-smoothing silicones”.  So that explains why it seemed to fill in my fine lines.  “It is a revitalizing primer that instantly illuminates and hydrates your complexion for a healthy, radiant look. Its moisturizing formula blurs imperfections to create the perfect canvas for makeup application or a beautifully bare finish”.  It goes on further to say  the benefits include  – Enhances the staying power of your makeup, and you can wear alone or under makeup and that it can be used with any skin care routine.

So what did you think?  If you’ve tried the new Vitamin C Primer leave a comment, and let me know what you thought. I’m definitely gonna add this to my cart, and give a full bottle a try.

Fade Under Eye Dark Circles

Wow,. In a few short days I’ve already noticed a difference.  The dark circles under my eyes are already beginning to fade, and I think I’m seeing a decrease in the “experience” lines around my eyes.  

So what have I been using?  The New Vitamin C Eye Cream.  It was recently introduced by Avon, as a part of the Anew Vitamin C line. The best benefit is that It can be used with any skin care routine.

But don’t take my word for it.  During a recent survey, 88% of women showed improvement in under-eye clarity in 2 weeks. And it has a 4.8 start rating based on customer reviews.

Vitamin C has numerous functions when taken into our diet, but we’re you aware that it provides benefits to out skin also that include brightening, evening out skin tone and rejuvenating skin. As I said I’ve already noticed a difference in just a few short days.

If you’re looking for something to refresh your routine,  this eye cream might be just what you’re looking for.  

If you’ve already tried the Vitamin C Serum, you already know what effects Vitamin C can have to brighten your son for a more rejuvenated appearance.  This Eye Cream is formulated especially for the delicate skin around our eyes.  Go ahead and give it a try today.  And remember we have a limited time money back satisfaction guarantee.

#ShowYourGlow with this innovative Lip Treatment

If you are around me much, you’ll probably notice I have a white tube, of what appears to be lipstick, either in my pocket or some place close by.  My secret lip treatment is really the Anew Vitamin C Lip Treatment

 I’ll be the first to admit, I was sceptical when it was first introduced a couple of years ago.  I had been partial to Moisturizing Lip Treatment, and didn’t think the extra cost was worth it, until I tried it.  The Vitamin C Lip Treatment is packed with antioxidants, vitamins C and E, 5 unique seed and kernel oils and nourishing waxes.  And it’s Alcohol, phthalate, paraben, and sulfate-free. Like all AVON products, it has been Allergy and Dermatologist-tested and is Hypoallergenic

It’s had been shown to visibly plump and smooth lips with a smooth, colorless finish.

In addition to the tube I carry around with me, I have a tube in the bathroom, in my make-up bag for those mornings when my lips are drier than usual. I use the Lip Treatment under my lipstick.

 I have even used the Vitamin C Lip Treatment to help heal my lips when I have the occasional cold sore pop up.  With daily use, I’ve been able to reduce the size of the cold sore in a matter of days, with very little pain.

Even though I’m not a fan of citrus smells or flavors, I look forward to the light orange citrus scent of the Vitamin C Lip Treatment.
