I hope you take advantage of these really special savings and treat yourself to some fabulous skincare, makeup, or pampering goodness, or treat yourself to all three!
Like to have fuller, more youthful lips? Or even softer, better moisturized lips? Yes, please!
Since the beginning of Winter this year, I’ve certainly been needing a little extra care for my lips it seems. I keep them moisturized constantly, but yet they are still dry if I do not have anything on them.
Then a light bulb went off. Doesn’t Avon have a lip conditioner? Perhaps that’s what I need… Yeah! Definitely!
So, I looked it up, and yep, it’s been there all along, right under my nose, so to speak. I was very excited to order this and receive it. Here is Avon’s official description for you:
Revitalize your chapped, dry lips with this highly-moisturizing lip conditioner for a softer, smoother feel.
BENEFITS • Lips feel smoother and softer • Lips become plumper, firmer, smoother and more supple • Dual plumping-formulated with retinol and collagen • In just two weeks, reduces lip dryness by 90% • Lips look more youthful • Adds volume to lips • Sheer coverage allows for wear under lipsticks • SPF 15
TO USE Swipe on your lips under your favorite lip color. Reapply whenever lips feel dry.
Sounds really fabulous to me! I’ll be using this every day. I’m looking forward to reduced dryness by 90% for sure. And it makes lips plumper, firmer, smoother, and more supple? Hooray! I have naturally thin lips, so I’m excited for that. And I love that it has sunscreen. Cannot forget to protect our lips just like we protect our faces (and necks), right?
And another bit of good news about this is that it is listed for $6.99, regularly $11.99.
I hope you snag yourself a tube (or 2, for that price!), and enjoy more supple and moisturized lips this Winter. Actually, I think this will be great any Season, especially with the SPF protection for your outdoor activities. Wear this conditioner alone or under your lipstick. I know I will!
And speaking of wearing this with lipstick, look what I just came across yesterday — Avon has a Condition & Color Lip Duo bundle deal available. I found this in the new special insert brochure that accompanies C.3.
There are 14 shades of lipstick to choose from with this Duo deal.
Valued at $22, this 2-piece set includes:
• Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick, 0.106 oz. net wt. • Beyond Color Lip Conditioner, SPF 15. 0.106 oz. net wt.
This set is listed in my Avon store for $11.50 – Click here. How’s that for good news? Yay! The lipstick shade pictured above is Peony Blush. So pretty.
Have fun shopping this deal.
Till next time, stay fabulous and always follow your joy!
That’s exactly what I told myself while looking in the mirror a while back.
Hey everyone! How are you? Excited to get back to work? I know I am! I had fun over the holiday, but have been eager to get back to my fun stuff here.
But yeah, I had to have that conversation with myself. We all know that immobility leads to sagging, and that includes our faces. I know that for me, I’ve always loved exercising, but recently, with the changes going on within me due to menopause, I sometimes do not have the motivation I used to, to get myself moving. BUT, after that OMG moment looking in the mirror, I found anewed motivation. I have also been inspired by others my age to get my exercise bike back out, and get myself toned up. So yay! I hope I can also help inspire someone else out there that may need a friendly push to keep on workin’ it, even when you may not feel that into it.
So, let’s get going on exercising that gorgeous face. You know what they say, move it or lose it!
Here are a few of my favorite exercises to do daily. And as with most things that I do, I love to multi-task, so some of these will also exercise your neck and arms at the same time.
The first one I like to do, kind of like a warm-up, is very simple. You can do this exercise, and all of them really, either sitting down or standing up, and I like to sometimes do these while riding my exercise bike.
I do not have names for these exercises, so for this one I’ll call the O-E Exercise. This is for your cheeks as well.
First purse your lips into an exaggerated “O” shape:
Then change to a very wide “E” shape:
I know this looks funny! Haha! But I can really feel the muscles in my face and neck area being stretched and exercised when I do this. I do this exercise about 12 times. And with it looking so funny, it may also lift your spirits and make you laugh – or make others laugh!
The next exercise I like to do is for my neck area. It’s basically opening and closing your mouth, but while stretching your neck upwards.
Just stretch your neck upwards and pull your bottom lip up. I can really feel my neck muscles being worked with this one.
I’ve always heard that a woman’s neck shows her age, so yeah, get those neck exercises in with your facial exercises.
The great thing about these exercises is that they’re not strenuous and you can do them anytime, and practically anywhere, and they do not take a lot of time. So, no excuses Jfay!
Okay, let’s get some more physical action going – not strenuous, just more active.
Let’s stretch those arms out…
S t r e t c h from side to side. Slowly… Really stretch your neck while you’re doing this, from one side to the other. You will feel those side neck muscles getting worked out with this one. I’m hoping this one will help with the side jowls as well, because I can feel it pulling my muscles all the way up to my chin area. I sometimes add an extra stretch to this one for my face by opening and closing my mouth while in this position. I can really feel it in my chin area then. Kind of a side mouth stretch. This helps get the blood flowing too.
Now, I’m going to stretch up and down.
Stretch those arms up to the ceiling, and your head up as well, with your neck stretched.
Then bring it all down.
Having fun yet?
No.. don’t look up! Haha! Although, that could be another angle to stretch from. 🙂 But, I basically go straight up and down like this several times. It exercises my neck and the back of my upper arms (which can always use the exercise, if you know what I mean.).
So, there you have it! Those, for right now, are my favorite easy go-to daily face, neck, and upper arm exercises. I may add more to my routine later, but I am enjoying doing these, and have been able to fit them into my schedule easily. Plus my bike riding! I’m very proud of myself for making sure to ride my bike as well, practically every day. I’ve had to miss a few days during the holiday, but that’s not too bad. I’ve been riding a mile, a mile and a half, and sometimes 2 miles a day now. Hooray!
Another thing I wanted to mention to you about keeping that gorgeous face and neck look fabulous and youthful, is to also try to make moisturizing a daily habit as well. It can be very simple and not take much time to do, especially with this new line of moisturizers I’m about to show you. Which, I did a blog post just a while back about Physiogel. I love this so much, and it is now my favorite moisturizer.
I cannot laud this nearly enough. It is so fabulous. This humble looking moisturizer is designed to repair, restore, and hydrate your skin. It is made for dry, sensitive skin, and feels so wonderful.
Here’s what Avon has to say about Physiogel:
Our Physiogel BioMimic Technology contains lipids that are similar to those found naturally in skin that help repair and strengthen skin’s moisture barrier, restoring the hydration your skin needs to stay strong and visibly healthy.
I use this on my face and neck twice daily. It smooths into my skin quickly and does not leave any greasy residue, so it’s perfect under makeup as well.
Avon has a full line of this product. For your face, your body, and for facial cleansing. Here’s a link for you to read more about it, and see all the products in this line. And with our new Campaign 2 right now, you will receive a free gift of a trial size facial cream with any Physiogel purchase. I’ll be getting mine for sure! Here’s a link to the new Brochure’s Physiogel page 1. Just click the side arrow to browse the pages.
And there you have it – some of my very favorite self care tips for my face and neck area. I hope this helps get you inspired and motivated too. Always take time for you, and take good care of yourself. It’s never too late (or early) to begin a great skincare and exercise regimen.
If you give Physiogel a try, let me know how you like (I mean, love) it!
Till next time, stay fabulous and follow your joy!

I promised I’d share my new favorite face moisturizer with you, and here it is, Avon’s new Physiogel Daily Moisture Therapy Intensive Facial Cream.
When I received this in my Avon Swag Bag, I was just kind of like, huh. Didn’t look that impressive to me. But, I decided to give it a try. You know how much I love The Therapy Oil Blending Cream, so yeah, I wasn’t even thinking of trying another facial moisturizer. So glad I did though! Humble looks can be deceiving, especially when we all love fancy and beautiful packaging for our cosmetics, right?
This lotion is (trying to think of an appropriate adjective here… ) super, fantastic, awesome, wonderful, and tha bomb! Haha! How’s that? I think I just about covered how much I adore this lotion.
I was soooo surprised when I tried it. Firstly, I do have very sensitive skin, so with it being for dry, sensitive skin, I was like, okay, yeah, at least it shouldn’t irritate my skin. This lotion goes on like SILK. I am telling you, it is rich without being oily, light but so moisturizing. My skin immediately feels moisturized and has (as I’ve seen described) a water glow look.
I’ve not even gotten to the best part about this lotion yet. Physiogel is designed with BioMimic Technology. What is that, you ask? Physiogel contains lipids that are similar to those found naturally in our skin. Lipids help repair and strengthen our skin’s moisture barrier and restores hydration to keep our skin strong and visibly healthy. So, in other words, when you use Physiogel you are giving your skin what it naturally needs to repair and restore itself, which equals more youthful looking skin.
And, there are many formulations of Physigel to choose from. In the Daily Moisture Therapy category there are face and body lotions and a cleanser. In the Calming Relief category there are face and body lotions. You can Click Here to check out all of them and see which may fulfill your needs the most.
The Physiogel products come in a variety of price ranges. The one I’m showing you here that I am using is listed for $44.00 regular price, but on my website it is $34.99. Quite a savings there.
If you have dry skin, sensitive skin, or both, you will really want to give this a try. You know how your skin feels really tight sometimes after cleansing? It is gone instantly when you smooth this on. Use it on your neck/chest area as well to keep those areas looking youthful too. I always say the neck can give away someone’s age, so keep that neck moisturized! 🙂
Okay gang. I shall close with that beauty tip. I am off to order a variety of brow products to try out. I mentioned to you in my last blog post that I was trying to up my brow game, so I’ll be experimenting with Avon’s newest brow products and see how they work, which works best for me, or if a combo of products works best, etc. We’ll see. This should be fun!
Physiogel’s skin-friendly creams and lotions, dermatologist recommended, are formulated with pure and gentle ingredients, are hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and free from fragrances, preservatives and colorants.
The main feature in C.22 is the arrival of Isa Knox Anew Clinical Collagen Booster.
Let me tell you, I’ve been using these 2 products for several weeks (I’m so lucky these were in my Avon Convention Swag Bag!), and I am in love.
As you can see, there are 2 products that work together. The Microneedling Polisher, and the Rejuvenating Serum Ampoules. Don’t be afraid. I know it sounds all “clinically” and the words microneedling and ampoules may sound scary, but these products are anything but scary. They are really, really fabulous.
You begin with the Polisher.
Here is Avon’s definition and description for you:
INTRODUCING ISA KNOX ANEW CLINICAL COLLAGEN BOOSTER™ Jump-start collagen production and see youthfully re-plumped skin.
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.
A REGIMEN WITH RESULTS 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.
BENEFITS • 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
KEY INGREDIENTS • 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.
TO USE 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. *Based on a consumer-perception study.
See, not so scary! And upon using this, my skin feels really good. Nice and clean, and smooth. Great exfoliation. Just rub it gently in circular motions on your face and then rinse well with water. Keep away from your eyes.
Next, you’re ready to apply a little Ampoule filled with gorgeousness.
I LOVE these! It feels like you’re gently rubbing velvet on your skin. I’m not kidding. Here’s Avon’s definition and description for you.
INTRODUCING ISA KNOX ANEW CLINICAL COLLAGEN BOOSTER™ Jump-start collagen production and see youthfully re-plumped skin.
This youth-enhancing serum features a powerful peptide blend that boosts the body’s natural production of collagen so skin looks instantly smoother. You’ll see radiance reignited, fine lines and wrinkles reduced and skin re-plumped…and remarkably renewed.
A REGIMEN WITH RESULTS When used together with Isa Knox Anew Clinical Collagen Booster™ Microneedling Polisher, this regimen was clinically proven to significantly improve skin elasticity and firmness after 14 days with even better improvement after 28 days.
BENEFITS • Capsulated single-use ampoules keep formula fresh and potent to deliver the optimum dose • Contains ingredients that increase the amount of total collagen content by 65% in just 48 hours* • Free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, fragrances and mineral oil • Hypoallergenic • Clinically- and dermatologist-tested • Vegan
KEY INGREDIENT • Peptide Blend – Boosts the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin for skin that looks youthfully re-plumped.
TO USE AM/PM: Smooth gently over cleansed skin in an upward and outward motion. AM: Follow with a sunscreen—we recommend Hydra Fusion Daily Beauty Defense SPF 50. For an extra collagen boost, use after the Microneedling Polisher. *Based on a cell-cultured study.
So, basically, you exfoliate your skin and then apply the serum. It’s very easy to do, and does not take a lot of time to do something so awesome for your skin. I follow this up now with a new moisturizing lotion that I also received in my Swag Bag. I will blog about that soon. It is also very fabulous and feels like I’m applying silk to my face. I still use my very favorite one too, but the new one may be winning out. We’ll see. It doesn’t look luxe in it’s tube, but it sure feels very luxe. You’ll see what I mean.
Okay gang, I hope you enjoyed today’s blog post and that you’ll treat yourself to the new Isa Knox (which, btw, Isa Knox Cosmetics Company is owned by LG Household and Healthcare, the new owners of Avon) Collagen Booster regimen. It really is a great treat for your skin. And I hope you love using it as much as I do.
