Not that You Need these… But Avon’s Anti-Aging and Dramatic Firming Creams are Back in Stock! These Inexpensive Gems Go Like Hot Cakes!

Avon's Anti-Aging Cream https://www.avon.com/product/avon-solutions-antiaging-cream-74650?rep=mybeauty

I am not kidding you guys. People buy these in multiples. I’ve been wanting to share these (sometimes over-looked) gems with you, but they sold out before I got a chance.

There was a huge rush on these just a while back. Seemed like everyone and their sister was stocking up on these, but thank goodness they’re now back. I’m stocking up on these myself now 🙂

The reason why I say they are sometimes looked over, is because it seems that most of the focus (when it comes to Avon skincare) usually goes to the Anew products or the latest breakthrough products, etc., but you know sometimes you cannot beat the simple little creams, and these are those types of creams.

Avon has several products in their Solutions line, but the Anti-Aging Cream and Dramatic Firming Creams are the 2 that I’ve used. I have received requests for the others while they were out of stock momentarily, so I hope this blog reaches everyone searching for these products.

Firstly, let’s talk about Avon’s Anti-Aging Cream. Regular price $13.00, $6.99 on my Avon website. I love using this in conjunction with the Anew Platinum Lift Sculptor Age-Delay Lifting Serum. I just recently posted about this serum and how much it has worked for me. I did not, however, speak about using the Anti-Aging Cream with it, since it was out of stock, but now, thankfully, it is available.

This Anti-Aging Cream is so luxurious (yes, luxurious), and feels so good on my skin. I start on my neck and smooth it upwards to my jaw-line and then to my face. I like to put this on the outside area of my eyes as well. It has a nice light aroma, and this is gentle on my very sensitive skin. I was so sad when I ran out. This makes my skin look so hydrated, glowy, and dewy. I love it, and cannot wait to get more in!

Here is Avon’s official description:

Your solution to the look of aging is here. This anti-aging cream helps skin feel deeply replenished for visibly youthful, restored plumpness. Featuring a vitamin blend, sunflower extract and chia extract, the moisturizing formula works to visibly smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a firmer, smoother, younger look. 1.7 fl. oz.

BENEFITS
• Clinically shown to boost moisture in skin
• Provides 48 hours of hydration
• Suitable for all skin types (dry, normal, oily, combination)
• Lightweight
• Absorbs quickly
• Non-greasy/oily and non-sticky/tacky
• Free of parabens, phthalates, mineral oil
• Makes skin look and feel incredibly soft, smooth and supple in one night
• Makes skin look and feel revitalized in one night
• Makes skin look and feel firmer in one night
• Softens the look and feel of fine lines and wrinkles in one night

TO USE
In the AM and PM, smooth the cream over face and throat using gentle, upward motions. Wear alone or under makeup.
Use the anti-aging cream after you cleanse, tone and treat your skin.

Next up is the Dramatic Firming Cream.

Avon's Dramatic Firming Cream https://www.avon.com/product/avon-solutions-dramatic-firming-cream-133611?rep=mybeauty

This was the very first Avon Solutions product that I tried, and since I enjoyed it so much I then tried the Anti-Aging Cream, and am so glad I did.

With this product I generally tend to stay in my chest, neck and jawline areas, smoothing upwards. Always apply upwards as you’d like your skin to stay – upwards! 🙂 You do need to avoid the eye area using this one. The Dramatic Firming Cream is priced normally at $10.00, $5.49 on my Avon website. this is also available in a jumbo size.

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.

Made in USA 

I hope you give these products a try for yourself. These are so affordable and so beautiful to use. Here’s the link again to the Avon Solutions Page.

Enjoy!

Beautiful Hair Care Products made from Honey and Royal Jelly for Smooth, Shiny Hair Full of Body. (Use Experience and Review)

Thank you bees indeed! And thank you Avon, for bringing us such a fabulous hair care system. The Elastine Propoli Thera Hair Care Line is full of hair care products for every need, and all are made using products made by (and used by) bees.

The products you see pictured above are the ones that I currently use. The Propoli Thera Damage Repair Shampoo, Damage Repair Conditioner, Hair Oil Serum, and Volume Spray.

If you’ve followed my blog for any length of time, then you may know that I’ve been growing out my hair from a very short undercut Pixie style. I am now 1 year into my grow out. I was using Dr. Groot Shampoo to help with my grow-out and it worked awesomely, and I am now in the managing the grown out natural gray hair stage. I had originally went with a very short hair style because of my thinning hair due to Menopause. I am now past that point and ready to try a longer style again, so there is my background story regarding all this for you. 🙂

My hair has thankfully grown out fuller than I thought it would (thank you Dr. Groot Thickening Shampoo), and I have been using the Propoli Hair Oil Serum and Volume Spray the entire time as well. I’ve added the Shampoo and Conditioner to my full time lineup after trying them (in travel size) in my Avon Travel Kit, plus also testing some salon shampoos and conditioners and seeing which products did a better job at giving me 1) smooth hair (gray hair has a different texture), 2) shiny hair (do not like dull silvers…, and 3) body (gotta have fullness and bounce!).

After testing for over a month, Propoli won out every time on all three counts, and my hair held up better the next day after shampooing and styling.

The Propoli line also has Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner, but since I tried the Damage Repair duo and liked it so much, I went with those as my choice. My hair is not damaged, but with gray hair, it can have that type of feel; kind of dry and frizzy, and since this ticks off the body and smoothness boxes, I am very happy with my results using the Damage Repair pair.

The Hair Oil Serum and Volume Spray have been total game changers throughout my 1 year hair grow-out experience and they were a necessity when my hair was short as well. As soon as I towel dry my hair, it wants to automatically go in freak-out frizz mode. Applying the Oil Serum is like magic. It calms my hair instantly and smooths the texture. I then spritz the Volume Spray all over at the roots and I’m ready to style. There is no sticky residue at all. I do go lightly with the Oil Serum. A little goes a long way. I’ve had the same bottle for over a year now and I still have about a 1/3 left, so it is a great investment for $15.99.

Here is Avon’s official description, and the main ingredients are basically the same for all.

Catch the buzz and treat your hair to some self care. Our rejuvenating hair serum is made with beeswax, honey and royal jelly (what bees eat), and will help strengthen, protect, moisturize and smooth hair. Not to mention, it adds shine as you style! 5.7 fl. oz.

Our Elastine PropoliThera is formulated to add new life to your hair. Free of sulfates and parabens, it infuses every strand with healthy-looking body and shine.

BENEFITS
• Repairs damaged hair
• Mends split ends
• Suitable for all hair types, color-treated hair, permed hair or chemically-treated hair
• Paraben-free, sulfate-free

Key Ingredients:
• Propolis (tree sap plus beeswax) – Contains minerals, vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants to help restore weak and brittle hair.
• Honey (made by bees from the nectar of flowers) – Helps restore moisture.
• Royal jelly (the food of bees) – Helps lock in shine and restore hair’s natural luster.

TO USE
Use after shampoo and conditioner. Apply 1-2 pumps to damp or dry hair and leave in.

I am linking you here to the entire line, so you can see all the great products available and choose the ones that suit your needs. You’ll find deep conditioning packets, curl cream, volume mousse, a hair mask, and more.

Enjoy, and enjoy beautifully shiny, smooth, full hair! I know I am!

Till next time, stay fabulous and follow your joy!

Hair Care for Gray/Silver Hair Review

You Guys, My Neck Looks So Much Better. This Stuff Really Works!

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

I’ve been super excited for the release of this new Anew Age Delay Serum for a while now. I received this as a gift back in August in my Avon Convention Swag and have been happily using it since.

What caught my attention about this is that it is formulated to help firm sagging skin, and I’d been noticing some crepiness in my neck that wasn’t thrilling me very much, so I was very happy to give this a try. To my great surprise this stuff actually works! I know that may sound cynical coming from an Avon Rep., which you all know how much I love my Avon skincare products, but with crepey skin coming on, I just wasn’t sure if anything would actually correct that or not. But hey, yeah, my neck looks so much better. I do my makeup in a well lit room with a lighted mirror, so there’s no hiding any skin issues. I am just thrilled, tickled pink, all the above :), and couldn’t wait to share this great news with you all.

This just arrived this Campaign and it is debuting at $26.99, regular price is $60.00, so I’d say jump on it sisters – and brothers!

I use this on my neck, my upper chest, my jowls, and now even on my upper eye lid, around my eyes, just everywhere. It is very gentle, and goes into the skin very quickly. I have very sensitive skin, so I always approach skincare with great ease going in, but now I’m putting it all over. I’d love to put this on my upper arms and I sometimes do. Just let me bathe in it! Haha!

Here is the description and ingredient list for you:

With an innovative antioxidant technology containing niacinamide (vitamin B3) and panthenol (pro-vitamin B5) plus collagen-stimulating peptides. Use AM and PM before moisturizer. 1 fl. oz.

BENEFITS
• Helps promote a lifted look for sagging skin

Licorice: A rich root known to help regenerate elastin and collagen, helping visibly brighten and soothe skin.

Hyaluronic Acid:
The super hydrator, helps increase hydration levels, helping keep skin looking plump and bouncy.

Panthenol:
Helps soothe, smooth and retain hydration

Niacinamide:
Helps visibly improve discoloration and improve the appearance of skin texture and fine lines.

Peptides:
Help rebuild and repair damaged cells, but most importantly signals skin to help produce collagen, thus slowing the aging process

Extra bonus, this is a vegan skin care option. So yay!

I hope you snag a bottle or two for yourself and your bestie. I know I’ll certainly be keeping this on hand ALL THE TIME! It is truly wonderful! Here is the link for you: Anew Platinum Age Delay Serum.

Till next time, stay fabulous and follow your joy!

Imagine the aroma of Christmas cookies filling the air with sweet cinnamon, creamy almond, and vanilla… So cozy, and warming.

Now, imagine enjoying all those sweets around a nice crackling fire admiring your Christmas tree… Or the next best thing, possibly…

The Balsam Fireplace Candle is very welcoming with fragrant notes of warm amber, salted caramel, and balsam.

No Matter Your Why, Avon is the Best Beauty Business Opportunity (Per My Personal Research and Experience)

If you are in the pursuit of a career selling beauty products so that you can work from home (or from anywhere), work at your own pace, set your own hours, etc., then I would greatly suggest you look no further than Avon.

Oh, you’re just saying that because you sell Avon — Well, I’ll answer that with a yes, certainly, and an also I have done my own research into the subject.

No other beauty consultant or beauty representative type of business that I have inquired into can even come close to what Avon offers on many different levels.

First and foremost in importance (to me) is that sign up is free. Secondly, I am never required to purchase and sell my own inventory, and thirdly, my Avon website is free for me to use. And bonus — Avon pays my state sales tax for me! This combo is almost unheard of with any other beauty business company. I have encountered other companies in which there is a monthly fee for your own website, plus you are required to purchase a certain amount in inventory each month that you are then responsible for selling or you loose your investment.

My only “requirement” or investment with Avon is that I make a purchase every Campaign (every 2 weeks). There is no dollar minimum requirement. It can be $5.00. It can be something personal that I want to use, or something that I purchase on behalf of a customer. Easy, peasy. That’s it. The rest is up to me in regards to how I wish to build my own personal business.

Avon of course has been around for many many years. In the old days it was a door to door operation, but in today’s world it can all be online, or if you prefer face to face, or door to door, then that option is still available and Avon does still have their paper brochures.

But you should see the new digital brochure!

And this is completely free for me to share with everyone. It is so fabulous, and so is Avon. They are very very generous with their Representatives. You would not believe all the free gifts and perks available to Avon Representatives. Well, if you’ve followed my blog here for any length of time, then you’ve most likely seen my posts on the subject of freebies, gifts, and such.

Here is a brief outline of some of the opportunities available to Avon Representatives:

  • Get paid for doing what you love and make real money to help your family or save for a splurge
  • Fantastic perks like access to telemedicine and affordable health insurance, online tuition discounts and more
  • New! Get exclusive access to the LG Partner Store for major discounts on LG electronics, appliances and tech
  • Earn on your own terms and schedule, part-time or full-time, from anywhere
  • Enjoy discounts on our award-winning products, trend-leading Korean and clean beauty, fragrance, jewelry and much more
  • Dream-vacation incentive trips
  • The incredible Avon community
  • Free online store for 24/7 sales
  • Digital tools to work your business from home or on the go, like the Digital Catalog and virtual makeup tool to do beauty consultations from anywhere
  • Tons of great training with our amazing training team and AVON U, our free, online learning center
  • Online fundraisers to help your community

Did you know that LG is now our parent company? With that, comes, well, special discounts for Avon Reps:

Did you also know that you can tap into all these perks even if you are not pursuing a beauty career? Say what??

Yep, if all you would like to do is purchase your own beauty products at a discount, well, sign up for Avon for free. Purchase your beauty products (at least once a Campaign, no minimum dollar amount, but your discount begins at $40.00), to stay an active Representative, and you are in, and you are receiving all the benefits and discounts and healthcare opportunities, and Avon Perks (yes, that’s another discount program featuring discounts from major companies on all kinds of stuff, even purchasing a new vehicle), and online tuition discounts.

For those who are pursuing a beauty career, Avon always has fun gift incentives to encourage us to grow our businesses plus free training via live training videos and Avon U, so Avon definitely has you covered. You can learn about selling online, about social media, and more.

If you love going on trips, then earning a free trip from Avon may be an exciting pursuit for you. I’ve heard great stories about how Avon pampers everyone on their exclusive trips.

Avon has different incentives to join from time to time, and right now (August 24, 2022), they are offering a Summer Blast Incentive for a new recruit’s first 8 campaigns, when you join before September 27th, 2022. Here’s what that includes:

New recruits can sign up for $0 or with a contribution of $5 to Avon’s partner, the American Cancer Society, or they can choose an incredible starter collection packed with best sellers.

For a limited time right now, when they place a first order of any amount on Avon.com, new recruits get a free welcome gift product** ($40 value).

  • When their first order is $60+, we’ll add a $10 credit to use in their second campaign.

New recruits earn 30% commission on beauty sales when they sell $100 or more per campaign. (This is awesome, I had to level up to Premier to earn 30% a campaign.)

Up to $1,550.00 in free products when they hit $500.00 in sales during their first 8 week period. (Wow! I told you Avon is generous!)

*Total cumulative campaign sales, Beauty, Jewelry & Watch sales only. Fashion & Home Items are excluded.

I honestly do not think you will ever find an equal to Avon when it comes to opportunity, a very recognized name in beauty products, their generosity, and the support and platform in which to sell.

If you’d like to sign up today, it is very easy. Here is my sign-up link: https://www.avon.com/becomearep?rep=mybeauty. My Avon Representative Code is: mybeauty, and my full name is Johanna Bustamento.

When you sign up using my code (my link), or requesting me to sign under, I will become your Avon Mentor. I will be very happy to help you get your new business up and running! (You can sign up with me as your mentor from anywhere in the United States.)

Cheers! And I look forward to meeting you!
