Anniversary Road Trippin’, Avon Style! Part II

Anniversary Road Trippin', Avon Style, Part II.  Jfay's Beauty Blog.

Hey gang! So who’s planning a fun road trip this Summer? Or two, or more road trips? It’s so fun to get out on the road and see the sites, perhaps visit a destination spot, or not. Just have fun.

When I go on a road trip, I like to feel comfortable and casual, but still look presentable, so I thought I’d share a few of my favorite Avon products that I use to get ready for the day’s adventure.

Now, not pictured above, and a very great and easy beginning to my makeup look is Avon’s Cashmere Compact Powder Foundation. This foundation (to me) is the complete bomb! I love this so much. I do not need a concealer or several different makeup items for a full coverage look. I just simply swipe it on, and it’s like magic to me. I put this on my eyelids too. It works as a great primer for my eyeshadow, so yeah, this is my one-stop all over face perfecter, and it is very fast and easy. Let’s get on the road! 🙂

Avon's Cashmere Compact Powder Foundation.  Swipe on, and you're ready!

It has powder in the formula, so no need to take powder with you for touch-ups. You can just slip this in your purse and go. There’s a little storage area underneath the foundation for the makeup sponge. $30.00, and worth every cent!

I decided to wear Avon’s new Bombshell Eyeshadow Palette. It went perfectly with my red and white striped shirt. You’ve seen me wear this palette before for a very dramatic look, so I thought you may like to see that it can certainly be worn very lightly too. The colors are so beautiful in this palette, and I am really happy that there is a brow highlight color in this one too. This is a Matte Eyeshadow Quad, listed on my Avon website for $11.99.

With this being a Matte Eyeshadow palette, again, very easy to apply. I did not need a long time to put this on. Just a few swipes, and I was done. I did not want to spend a long time on my makeup, but I did want it look nice and fresh. Which, all my makeup, (except my lipstick) lasted all day without any touch-ups. I did have to reapply lipstick.

And speaking of lipstick… I went with Wild Cherry! I know, it looks very dark for a day-time trip, but applied lightly it is a gorgeous Cherry Red color.

Avon's fmg Glimmer Satin Lipstick in Wild Cherry.

This is an Avon fmg Glimmer Satin Lipstick, and this particular shade is one that they brought back. I’ve been enjoying this shade since the ’90’s. When Avon re-did their lipstick line, Wild Cherry was not part of the line-up at first, but then they brought back some of our all-time faves. So happy! This is listed on my Avon website for just $8.49. I wore this over my favorite Avon Dew Kiss Lip Balm and just added it lightly till I achieved my desired shade. This is a great shade for varying the color. Wear it light or dark and dramatic.

And for my hair. Yes, I went with curls for a road-trip, but I did not do my hair the day-of. I slept with one of those satin curler rods and just released my hair in the am, ran my fingers through my hair and then spritzed with Avon’s Chi Enviro 54 Natural Hold Hair Spray, and I was ready to go.

Chi Enviro 54 Natural Hold Hair Spray from Avon.

What? You didn’t know that Avon carried Chi products? Well, stop on by and see the whole line-up of Chi products!

This hair spray worked so well. It held my hair, but without feeling too harsh. I like my curls to look and feel flowy, but stay together. Know what I mean? My curls lasted the entire day, even on a humid day, so yay! This stuff is awesome!

And the smell…. I LOVE the smell of this hairspray. I’d wear it for a perfume. It’s a botanical hairspray, but not flowery.

$21.50 on my Avon website.

Now, as promised in my Anniversary Road Trippin, Avon Style, Part I, how about some pics of where we went?

I hinted to you that it involved an indoor sport. Did you guess what it was? Putt-Putt! There’s a new place near downtown Houston that is a modernized putt-putt place, called The Puttery. It’s all indoors, and it’s only for adults. How awesome is that? There are 3 courses on two levels, each with their own restaurant and bar area, and each with their own signature cocktails to match each course. It is so beautiful in there. We played on the Conservatory Course:

The food is delicious at The Puttery in Houston. The burger sliders were so tasty, as was the Margarita pizza. We totally enjoyed our afternoon here.

And… I do remember I mentioned to you about where to get some really delicious fried green tomatoes, didn’t I?

Here are some pics from one of our days visiting the Humble area. We visited Humble City Cafe, in the historic Pangburn Building in old town Humble for some down-home cooking.

See the fried green tomatoes? They’re served with ranch dressing. So crunchy, and so good!

Anniversary Road Trippin’, Avon Style! Part I

Summer Vibes Jewelry and Lipstick from Avon.

Hello everybody! How are you? I hope doing very well.

My sweet husband Willie and I have been celebrating our (get ready for it….) 40th wedding anniversary – OMG! I’m not old enough to be married 40 years! 🙂 But, yeah, it’s quite a milestone year for us. We weren’t quite sure what we wanted to do to celebrate, so we decided to hang out, do some shopping, take some small road trips around our area, and just generally enjoy being together, doing whatever, plus relaxing. So, that’s what we did!

And, if you’ve been following me here for any length of time, then you know that Avon goes with me everywhere I go. Whether it’s my makeup, skin care, accessories, etc., Avon is always there, so I thought I’d share a few of my favorites for a couple of my around-town road tripping in the Houston, TX area, so here we go!

First up, is a brand new necklace and bracelet that were just released this past Tuesday, called the Summer Vibes Collection. I thought these were so cute. I love the mix of colors. The set I have is called Neutral, with browns, golds, white, and rust tones. There are also two more sets. One is called Cool, and the other Warm. The Cool is set in blues and greens, and the Warm is in reds and orange.

Summer Vibes Necklace in Cool.
Summer Vibes Necklace in Warm.

And I absolutely adore the matching bracelets (which are sold separately in the Bracelets category, under Jewelry. The necklaces are under Necklaces in the Jewelry Category). They are so cute!

Here’s mine:

Summer Vibes Bracelet in Neutral.

And here’s all three:

All three Summer Vibes Bracelets in Cool, Neutral, and Warm.

The top bracelet is in Cool (blues), middle bracelet is Neutral (browns), and the bottom bracelet is in Warm (reds). These are priced at $12.99 each on my Avon website, and each necklace is also $12.99. The bracelets are stretchy, so they go on very well. Mine is a bit loose, but it’s great. I wore it with another bracelet, so great for stacking, and it looks so pretty! I love the little charm and tassel too.

Now, since I was traveling pretty casual and wearing neutral toned jewelry, I decided to go with a neutral lip color. I chose Avon’s Glimmer Sating Lipstick in Morning Glory.

Avon Glimmer Satin Lipstick in Morning Glory.

Such a pretty color. This goes well dressed up or down. I wore this alone (without a lipliner) this time for just a hint of color over Avon’s Dew Kiss Lip Balm. The lipstick is listed for $8.49, and the Dew Kiss is .99. Great values, great lip care, and color.

So, where did we go? Well, I’ll share some pics with you here from our trip to Kemah Boardwalk down by Galveston Bay in Seabrook, TX!

We dined at Saltgrass Steak House with a great view overlooking Galveston Bay. Here’s some on-the-road pics. We traveled in our beloved red truck named Ruby:

I hope you enjoyed this travel blog, Part I. Stay tuned for Anniversary Road Trippin’, Avon Style! Part II! Hint: Indoor sports next time, and where to get some fabulous fried green tomatoes!

One last photo to leave you with here. We did have quite the adventure traveling to and from Kemah. There were high bridges along the way. Some over the Houston Ship Channel, and this one in Kemah, with a great view of Galveston Bay.

It’s Skin So Soft and Bug Guard Season!

America's #1 Deet-Free Repellents, Bug Guard from Avon.

Hey everyone!

Did you know that Avon’s Bug Guard is America’s #1 Deet-Free Repellent?

Did you also know that Bug Guard comes in different forms for different outdoor activities?

And did you know that you can purchase this fabulous repellent directly from me at a discount?

You’re definitely on a roll if you said yes to all 3!

But yes, bug season is definitely on. I do not know about where you reside, but here in Texas, the heat is on, and it has been raining just about daily, so yeah, you want to keep yourself protected while going outdoors.

You can choose the right Bug Guard product for you and for your outdoor activities. Here is the link to the full line. You will find Bug Guard in towelette form, travel size pump spray, aerosol spray, and with SPF 30 for swimming and water sports.

Avon is launching this 2023 bug season with a special offer. You receive a free Bug Guard Cooler Tote Bag with 2 select Bug Guard purchases, so now’s a great time to get packed and ready for your Summer-time trips.

Avon's Bug Guard:

And, what if you’re not a fan of bug sprays? Then I would suggest trying Avon’s Original Skin So Soft.

Skin So Soft Original is not advertised by Avon as being a bug repellent, but it has been known and used by folks for decades as a way to help keep the mosquitos at bay, and I have personally used Avon’s Original Skin So Soft in such a manner since the 1980’s.

Avon's Skin So Soft, since 1961:

Back in day, we only had the bath oil to choose from, but now, Skin So Soft comes in many different forms, such as my new favorite, Gelled Body Oil. It’s so easy to apply.

Avon Skin So Soft Original Gelled Body Oil.

And, as you saw from the very first photo, you can also find Skin So Soft in lotion form. That’s also very easy to use and apply. There is Skin So Soft Original Bar Soap, Shower Gel, Bath Oil, Bath Oil Spray, Body Lotion, and Hand Lotion. You can choose your favorite(s) and layer on the scent. Those bugs will not be able to find you! 🙂

Here is a link to the full line of Skin So Soft products.

Skin So Soft comes in different aromas now too. The Original scent is the one you’ll want to use to help repel insects, but if you’re wanting to use SSS for it’s wonderful skin softening effects, then you may like to try another scent such as Soft and Sensual or Coconut. The Coconut Body Oil Souffle’ is WONDERFUL…..

Avon Skin So Soft Coconut Body Oil Souffle':

It is very rich oil that has been whipped into a dense cream form, and has a very light and beautiful coconut aroma. This is definitely a must-try. It is wonderful for your legs. Makes them feel so pretty and dewy, but not greasy.

I could go on and on about Avon’s Skin So Soft products. I also use the Skin So Soft, Soft and Sensual Roll-On Deodorant:

Skin So Soft Soft and Sensual Roll On Deodorant:

It is a wonderful product and keeps my underarms nice and soft.

I tell you, the SSS product line has been around a while for a reason. It is truly amazing for maintaining soft skin, the smells are amazing, each product is amazing.

You’ve just gotta try it for yourself. There’s now also a new Skin So Soft facial line for acne prone skin.

But I will tear myself away for now and let you shop. Here’s the link again to the entire Skin So Soft line. I hope you find favorites that you could talk all day about too.

Iconic Vintage Avon Products That You Can Still Purchase from Avon

Iconic Vintage Avon Products that You can Still Purchase from Avon.

Hey everyone! How are you doing? I hope wonderfully.

I love it when a conversation sparks inspiration, don’t you?

I’ve been corresponding with a friend of mine who goes by the handle, High Heeled Road Tripper, and she was commenting about vintage Avon products, and that got me to thinking, “You know, we do still have some vintage Avon products that are actively for sale today.”, which is really cool as I hear comments from folks all the time saying that they couldn’t believe that a certain product was still for sale that they had forgotten about, so, let’s talk vintage Avon, and what you can still find that may be a long time favorite.

First and foremost, the queen of iconic Avon products, Skin So Soft. The original, the OG. 🙂 Yes, it is still here in all it’s glory, and then some. You can purchase Avon Skin So Soft Original Bath Oil plus many other Skin So Soft products in the original scent, plus new scents. The original Skin So Soft scent is the one that everyone has used as a bug repellent for decades. I know I’ve used it forever, and I still do. It now comes in a handy gel formulation that’s very easy to apply. I just got some for us for the Summer. So, happily it looks like SSS is here to stay! Hooray!

One of the oldest products, besides Skin So Soft, would have to be Avon’s Perfumed Liquid Deodorant. I remember my Mother using this product. How about you? Did you ever use this, or anyone in your family?

What I remember from my teens are Avon’s perfumes. I believe my first Avon perfume was Sweet Honesty, and then Timeless. Those two are still available (as are they in deodorant and hand cream form too), plus Candid, Night Magic, Topaze, Odyssey, and Dream Life. Some others that I consider vintage, are Imari, Rare Pearls, and for men, Wild Country and Black Suede. You can find all of Avon’s fragrances (iconic and new) here. The men’s fragrances are here.

For perfumed deodorants, Avon has always been great at offering deodorants that match your favorite Avon perfumes. They still have a number of roll-on deodorants in vintage fragrances as well as some new ones. You can check those all out here.

Now, something that I definitely remember my Grandmother using, was Avon’s Silicone Glove Hand Lotion. I have a fond memory of her putting this on before heading out to church. And it’s still available on my Avon website. Too cool. You can check out all of Avon’s hand creams here.

Another iconic Avon product (line) that may not have been around as long as some of the others, is Avon’s Anew line of skin care. This is an Avon top seller, for good reason, and hopefully will be around for many more years to come. This line keeps growing as Avon continues to develop and add new skin care products all the time.

I hope you enjoyed this Avon product memory lane and that you stop by and pick up some of your old favorites, as well as find some new favorites too.

Strawberry Funnel Cake Candle

Strawberry Funnel Cake Candle from Avon:

It’s here! My Strawberry Funnel Cake Candle from Avon!

I always look forward to Avon’s seasonal candles, and was tickled pink when I saw their Spring/Summer 2023 line. I’m loving the nostalgic look and sweet Summer smells. If you caught my blog post introducing these, then you know that this one had my number, for sure. 🙂

Strawberry Funnel Cake Candle from Avon:

The candle arrived in a nice red box. (These make fabulous gift ideas too, by the way.) Upon opening the box, the very delicious aroma of strawberries was very prominent. Upon getting the candle out, there is a very cute paper cover with a picture depicting a ferris wheel ride.

Strawberry Funnel Cake Candle from Avon:

So fun! Just the perfect touch. When I took the covering off and gave it a good whiff, I got the aromas of strawberries, there’s a baked good aroma to it, and an underlying note of vanilla.

I am burning it now as I am writing this post, and am really enjoying the beautiful and soft aroma. It is a wonderful scent for this time of year.

I think we’re really going to enjoy this candle a lot this season.

The other Spring/Summer candles include: Pina Colada Slushie and Salt Water Taffy. You can find them all in Avon’s new Home (Kitchen and Living) Section. I hope you snag your favorite for yourself too! They are listed for $19.99 on my Avon site. Regular price is $25.00.

Let me know, and be sure to get your favorite before it’s gone. Avon’s seasonal candles usually go pretty fast.

My Favorite (Facial) Skin Polisher for Soft, Smooth, Beautiful Skin

Avon's Isa Knox Anew Clinical Microneedling Polisher.  It makes my skin feel velvety smooth.

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all doing very well!

Today I’d like to (re)share my very favorite facial skin polisher with you. Avon’s Isa Knox Anew Clinical Collagen Booster Microneedling Polisher. Firstly, do not let the term “microneedling” scare you. It had me concerned at first that this may be harsh on my skin, but it’s quite the opposite. I’ve been using this for a couple of years now, and love how it smooths my skin. I actually love it first for how it feels when I’m using it. It has a gritty texture that to me feels very refreshing. I use it on my face, neck, chest, upper shoulder, and upper back areas. You do not need a lot of product per use. Just a dab, or one squeeze amount. I usually use this in the shower. It’s easier to rinse off, and I usually rinse my conditioner out of my hair after rinsing my face, since I tend to get some in my hairline.

But I tell you, right after I rinse, I can tell a huge difference in how my skin feels. It is so soft. It feels like velvet. I know I said that before about this product, and I still say it today. This is fabulous, and a definite game changer. If your skin is feeling like it needs a lift or boost – just kind of drab, I’d say give this a try. The reason why this is called Collagen Booster, as there is no collagen in this particular product, is that when used in conjunction with the Isa Knox Anew Clinical Collagen Booster™ Rejuvenating Serum Ampoule, they work together to give your skin improved elasticity. So this is the first step in the regimen. You can either just use this on it’s own to gently resurface your skin, or take it a step further and add the Collagen Booster Ampule, which I have, and I love just as much. Talk about a velvety feel to my skin. The combo is heavenly.

Avon's Isa Knox Anew Clinical Collagen Booster Rejuvenating Serum Ampules for improved skin elasticity.

Here is Avon’s official description of the Anew Polisher:

A highly effective combination of gentle exfoliators polishes away dull skin cells, diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and improves the appearance of pores for a smoother, more youthful look. You’ll see radiance reignited, fine lines and wrinkles reduced and skin re-plumped…and remarkably renewed.

When used together with Isa Knox Anew Clinical Collagen Booster™ Rejuvenating Serum Ampoule, this regimen was clinically proven to significantly improve skin elasticity and firmness after 14 days with even better improvement after 28 days.

• Visibly and gently resurfaces skin in one treatment
• 97% agreed it makes skin feel dramatically smoother after just 1 week of use*
• Easy, professional at-home treatment
• Free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, fragrances and mineral oil
• Hypoallergenic
• Clinically and dermatologist-tested
• Vegan

• Perlite – Helps stimulate skin’s natural healing process to support collagen production.
• Aluminum Oxide Crystals – Removes dead skin cells and clears pores for visibly smoother, luminous skin.
• Diamond Powder – Stimulates cell turnover and enhances absorption of serums and moisturizers.

Apply a thin layer to clean, wet skin and gently massage in a circular motion. Rinse thoroughly.
We recommend using at night, as skin could appear slightly flushed after use. Follow with Green Goddess Facial Oil to eliminate any redness. Use up to 3X per week.

And a reminder — I have very sensitive skin, and I use this with great ease.

I hope you give this a try for yourself. The price of the Isa Knox Polisher is $19.99 on my Avon website (as per Campaign 6. Campaign 7 begins tomorrow), regular price is $34.00.

Here is a link to all of Avon’s Isa Knox Anew Products.

Till next time, stay fabulous and follow your joy,

Rubies and Enduring Love; New Bombshell Eyeshadow Palette from Avon

New Bombshell Eyeshadow Palette from Avon.

Hello friends!

My current mood is definitely Rubies and Enduring Love. My sweet husband Willie and I are celebrating our 40th (Ruby) wedding anniversary this year (in May). I am excited, honored, grateful, and unbelieving at the same time. For sure, where does the time go?

In our Ruby year, I have been tending toward Ruby as my color scheme as well, so when I saw Avon’s newest Matte Eyeshadow Quad in Bombshell, I was definitely in.

Such beautiful shades.

Avon Eyeshadow Palette Bombshell.

It’s been a little while since Avon’s had a Quad with a brow highlight color, so I’m really happy about having this palette. There’s a gorgeous Ruby shade, one that’s more on the red side, and a red-toned brown. They all blend together very well. This palette can be worn light and soft, or you can go bold, as I’ve chosen.

New Bombshell Eyeshadow Palette from Avon.

The Bombshell Eyeshadow Palette is $11.99, and there are also 3 other Matte Eyeshadow Quads to choose from as well. Two that are sunset colors (rusts, browns, yellows), and one in blues.

My fragrance choices to go with my Ruby look are Imari Amore, and Dreamlife. I walk into a light spritz of each. They go together very well and leave a heavenly scent all around.

Imari Amor Eau de Parfum from Avon.

Imari Amor, the ultimate expression of love, wraps you in a seductive blend of rich black currant, precious orris and warm musk. Embrace the passion. 1.7 fl. oz. 

Top: Mandarin, Black Currant, Mandarin, Green Notes, Lychee
Mid: Rose, Jasmine, Neroli, Ylang-Ylang, Precious Orris
Dry: Patchouli, Sandalwood, Warm Musk, Amber

Dreamlife Perfume from Avon.
Dreamlife Perfume from Avon with notes of Mimosa Flower, Aspirational Rose, and Glowing Amber.

Dreamlife is a delightful and light floral aroma with Mimosa Flower, Aspirational Rose, and Glowing Amber.

Both fragrances are wonderfully beautiful on their own, I just really enjoy their fragrances together.

And to finish the look and mood, I used a combo of Eclipse and Constellation in Avon’s fmg Glimmer Satin Lipstick.

I hope this post helps spark a bit of mood enhancement ideas for you too!
