Ohhhh…. get ready for this one guys and gals! I think you’re both going to enjoy this new sexy men’s fragrance.
True Gent Blue
A fresh and clean fragrance with fresh basil, watery coconut and cedarwood.
This new fragrance arrives in 2 days. Well, 1 1/2 days to be exact. This will drop on my Avon website tomorrow afternoon, around 4 pm central time.
I’m so glad I got samples to try ahead of time. I had a feeling this was going to be a good one, as I love the original True Gent so much, and I was right! This is a very exciting men’s fragrance release.
When I try it on, I immediately get blue notes – like a light water note, followed by a light spice (must be the basil and cedar). A hint of sweet. I’m guessing that’s the coconut note. An almost powdery note – just a slight hint. It’s very easy on the nose and very enticing at the same time. Yeah! I think enticing is the perfect adjective to describe this aroma (attractive or tempting; alluring).
Here’s what the bottle will look like:
It’s a really nice sized bottle. It’s the same look and size as the original True Gent which I purchased for my Hubby, just in a gorgeous blue.
Tomorrow afternoon will begin Campaign 19. Our new theme is Get Styling. It’s all about gorgeous hair, with a highlight of awesome Chi products, and there is a free gift offer, worth $25.00! I’ll be back tomorrow with all the deets.
Hemp and CBD Oil seem to be all the rage the days, and for good reason. They are filled with nourishing, healing, and calming properties. This particular Bathing Bar is made using Hemp Oil. Avon has CBD Oil products as well, such as the Green Goddess Facial Oil that I love so much, but this time we’ll be talking Hemp.
And what about Hemp Seed Oil?
Here is Avon’s answer for you: A naturally-derived oil enriched with omega-3-6-9 fatty acids and vitamin E to help naturally nourish, hydrate and soften as it cleanses for the look of youthful, healthy radiance.
• Infused with ultra-hydrating hemp seed oil
• Gently cleanses and nourishes
• Leaving skin feeling refreshed and soft
• Dermatologically tested
• Formulated without CBD, THC, mineral oil, parabens and triclosan
And to my very great surprise, this smells AWESOME! I was really expecting this to smell “green” like herbally, because of the nature of the ingredient, and also the color of the bar itself, but oh boy, does it smell wonderful. It’s definitely a unisex aroma. It’s pretty, but yet almost hints at a men’s fragrance. So yeah, I’d say for both men and women to share. I would even set this out in a guest bathroom to fragrance the air, it smells so good. After using this bar I have found it very pleasurable as it lathers well and leaves my skin lightly fragranced.
Up next, I decided to try the Avon Solutions Dramatic Firming Cream as well as their Advance Techniques 360 Nourish With Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner.
You may or may not yet be aware of how skin’s elasticity and tone can tend to change as we mature, especially around the neck and jaw-line areas of our gorgeous faces. Wah-wah…
Even when using moisturizers faithfully, exercising, and eating a very healthy diet, we may still need to call in a little extra reinforcement. Thankfully Avon has their Dramatic Firming Cream. As I’ve been noticing some changes in my jaw-line area, I thought it was time for me to call in the cavalry myself.
Here is Avon’s official description:
Give your skin its youthful, tight look back with the Dramatic Firming Cream. The special formula works to firm and smooth while simultaneously moisturizing your face to return skin’s healthy elasticity. 1.7 fl. oz.
BENEFITS • Collagen helps keep skin firm and resilient • Vitamin E helps provide antioxidant protection • Vitamin A helps smooth skin • Pomegranate extract helps firm skin • Dermatologist-tested, allergy-tested • Phthalate-free, sulfate-free, petroleum-free TO USE • Use each night after cleansing and toning, or in the morning under makeup or alone. Apply a nickel-sized amount of cream on your throat and massage upward until completely absorbed. Then, beginning at the jaw line, gently smooth the cream on your face, moving toward your temples and avoiding the eye area.
I’ve been using this firming cream for about a week now. Overall, so far I am very happy with it. I use this mainly at night after cleansing and moisturizing. I dot it on my chest and neck area and rub upwards to my jaw-line. I do not use this on my entire face, and definitely not around my eye area. Do not want to tighten my eyes! Haha!
This product is lightly scented. It is creamy and light. Not thick and gooey at all. It rubs in very easily and then disappears, so you could wear this during the day under makeup no problem.
If you’d like to give this Dramatic Firming Cream a try for yourself, you can snag a jar right now for $5.49 on my website. It normally lists for $10.00, so yay!
And next, we talk hair and Argan Oil.
I’ve noticed that Argan Oil seems to be all the rage these days as well. So yeah, let’s give this a try too. I’m always game to give something a try at least once (well, things that are within reason now…) 🙂
Here is Avon’s official description:
Instantly improve hair’s health and shine with Moroccan argan oil. It helps to transform dry hair and leaves it feeling moisturized. Formulated with argan oil, provitamin B5 and vitamin E, conditions hair with a creamy, luxurious lather, helping to restore the signs of healthy hair. 11.8 fl. oz.
BENEFITS • Cleanses and conditions hair • Restore the signs of healthy hair • Instantly detangles hair • Fights frizz • Contains vitamin E and provitamin B5 • Suitable for all hair types and for color treated hair
TO USE Wet hair and lather. Rinse. Repeat if necessary.
So I asked myself, “What is Argan Oil?” Then I asked Wikipedia. Here is the reply:
Argan oil is a plant oil produced from the kernels of the argan tree that is endemic to Morocco. In Morocco, argan oil is used to dip bread in at breakfast or to drizzle on couscous or pasta. It is also used for cosmetic purposes.
So then I wondered what are the benefits of Argan Oil? Healthline.com helped answer that question:
Argan oil has been used for centuries for a variety of culinary, cosmetic and medicinal purposes. It is rich in essential nutrients, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. Early research indicates that argan oil may help prevent chronic illnesses, including heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
Okay! Sounds awesome! I may want to eat some too. But, yeah, definitely sounds very healthy for my hair, so thanks Avon!
I’ve been using this for about 2 weeks now, and I really do love it. As you’ve most likely noticed, I’ve grown out my natural hair color which is a salt and pepper blend, or as I call it “my silvers”, and I like them to shine. That’s one of the reasons why I decided to give this a try. It sounded like something that would help my silvers shine at their best. And I was right. My hair is shiny and manageable, and even has more body. I could tell a difference after my first use. My scalp was feeling a bit dry as well, and now feels much better after using this product.
Definitely recommend, and again if you’d like to try this amazing Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner for yourself, it is listed at $4.89, regularly $9.00.
And as an extra side-note I decided to look up Argan Trees to see what they look like. Omg.. Haha! Check this.
Seems like goats like to climb up in the Argan Trees. That’s too funny!
And here is what the Argania Fruits look like:
Bet you know more about Moroccan Argan Oil now than you thought you’d care to!
Well, at least I hope it was a fun journey for you. I know I enjoyed learning all about it, and especially the goats in the trees.
I also hope that you give some of these fantastic products a try for yourself and enjoy their benefits.
I have more Avon goodies on their way to me now and am expecting an Avon Swag Bag to arrive very soon as well. I’m so excited! Avon’s annual convention is taking place at the end of this month. This year it is a virtual convention, so I’ll be attending from home. I can’t wait to see how it all goes. It will be live and interactive. But I’ll for sure be showing you all the swag I receive. It will either arrive with the order I have coming now, or in my next one, so we’ll see!
If you’d like to join in on the convention and all the swag, you still have a bit of time left to grab a spot. You can click here to join up today, and then contact me for convention sign-up info.
Okay gang, I’ll sign off for now. Till next time, stay fabulous!
Hello everyone! How are you doing today? I hope very well, and staying cool.
I thought I’d share my very favorite face moisturizer with you all today (again). I just received my 4th jar, so I took some pics before I dove into it, to show you how awesome it is, from the jar, and how it arrives, to the look of the formula, well, actually 2 formulas that you stir together. Yeah, not to mention how awesome it makes my skin look and feel.
So here we go! My very favorite face moisturizer – ever – The Therapy Oil Blending Cream from Avon x The Face Shop.
As you can see, it arrives very nicely boxed. The jar is really pretty. I love the Old World French/European look to it (Which, this is derived from a 200 year old recipe. How cool is that?), and it has it’s own little stirring spatula.
When you first open the jar you’ll find this nice little seal with a cute heart pull-up.
And look what awaits you under the seal.
How beautiful and luxurious is that? You get 2 layers of awesomeness.
The unique handmade blending formula has a bottom layer that boasts a highly-concentrated, rich moisture cream and a top layer consisting of fresh, natural essential oils.
Hand-blended essential oils are derived from a 200-year-old formulation of flowers, leaves and fruits to keep skin feeling nourished and looking younger.
• Sandalwood – Anti-aging; Used as a medicinal plant because of its anti-aging and rejuvenation properties.
• Avocado – Hydrating; Excellent for creating a long-lasting moisture barrier on skin and preventing moisture loss.
• Palmarosa – Nourishing; Delivers vitality and elasticity. Especially effective for treating and regenerating skin that’s damaged from the sun.
All you have to do is take the cute little stirring spatula and stir the formulas together. This only has to be done one time, and it will stay blended.
And there you go! This is so awesome. My skin drinks it up very quickly. There is no oiliness. The oil layer is more like a gel to me, and then combined with the rich cream, it’s just amazing. This cream is not dense or heavy. It’s very lightweight and does not leave any oily residue upon my face. Just makes my skin feel really nice and moisturized. I can apply makeup after putting this on, and I always apply it in the evening to a clean face (I always cleanse with Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser. This is an amazing product as well. I’m sure you’ve seen my blog posts about this one. I see it’s back on a Wait List, so be sure to get on it. This is a best seller and sells out frequently.). I use The Therapy on my neck and chest area too. I use upward strokes on my neck up to my jawline and continue an upward motion. It’s best to apply skin moisturizers the way you want your skin to continue going – up! I also use this around my eye area as well and it does great.
I love that this product is made using natural ingredients. As I’ve said before, that is a huge plus with me. I have very sensitive skin, and it really loves and responds to natural ingredients the best. This face moisturizer has been very gentle for my skin and has become one of my best friends. As soon as I see the jar begin to get low, I order some more asap.
The list price for The Therapy is $45.00, but you know you get a discount when you shop my Avon store, so for you it is $36.00. One jar will last me a little over a month, and I use it everyday for my face, neck, and chest, so that’s really a great price. I use it sparingly, as to me it is precious oils, so I dot in on all over here and there and then rub into my skin. If I need more, I just get a little dab more.
I sometimes follow this up with Green Goddess Facial Oil. This is also an amazing product made with CBD and other natural oils. It is great if I have some sensitive areas with any redness or blotchiness. I just dab it on where needed. It is very soothing to my skin.
I hope you enjoyed this blog post today, and that you too will give The Therapy Oil Blending Cream a try, and love it as much as I do.
