I love the phrase Over 50 and Fabulous! It’s such a wonderful milestone in a woman’s life I believe. To reach the age of 50 (and beyond), and feel awesome, and feel like you’re still looking pretty awesome too. We’ve raised our families and are now on a new journey. It’s pretty spectacular.
I’ve partnered with a couple of my Avon Teammates to celebrate the fact that we are over 50 and pretty darn fabulous, and to say a huge Thank You to Avon for being part of the beauty in our lives, inside and out.
I’d like to introduce you to these stunning ladies. First is one of my Avon Mentors, Keely Johnson.
Keely is a very youthful 57 yrs old and has been using Avon skin care for about 15 yrs now.
Keely says, “People always tell me that I don’t look 57. Thanks Avon!!! I use all the Avon skin care and Avon makeup. I switch it up and use different things on different days. Here are some of my favorites. I use the Rice Water Cleanser, The Face Shop Oil Anti Age Facial Serum, the Cica Peptide, the Anew Ultimate Dual Elixir, sometimes the Ultimate Day Cream, Ultimate Eye System, Anew Hyaluronic Serum, Vitamin C Serum, and Vitamin C Eye Cream. I like to use it all and switch it up, I want all the benefits of it all.”
Let’s meet beautiful Michelle Butler.
Michelle is 51 but has been told she still looks 30…. thanks to Avon!
Here are Michelle’s favorite skin care products from Avon: “I use Anew Ultimate Cream Cleanser and Multi-Performance Day Cream and Night Cream. I also use Anew Ultimate Supreme Dual Elixir at night. For eyes I use Eye Lift Pro Eye System and Anew Vitamin C Brightening Eye Cream.”
And look who’s next, meet Jfay, your Beauty Blog Hostess.
I am 55 and have been an Avon skin care fan since I was 12. My first Avon memory is during a church trip I took along with some older teenage girls. They were impressed that I was using a skin care regimen at my age, and that made a real impression on me since I looked up to them.
Avon’s makeup products are also wonderful for skin at every age. They have foundations, primers, color correctors, face perfectors, you name it. Here’s a link to all the facial beauty products. I use Avon makeup products exclusively, as I’m sure my 2 teammates do as well. Avon has fabulous eye makeups, lipsticks, blushes, mascaras, and more. You can look through my previous posts to find the products that I love and use, and you know I’ll be posting more about favorite makeup items in the future too, so just stick around!
I hope this post helps bring some inspiration to ladies our age, and a realization to younger generations that maintaining your looks is very possible, fun, and easy using Avon products. You’ve just met 3 (very happy to be) Avon Representatives who are here to represent, and to keep the Avon legacy going into the future.
Till next time, stay fabulous and always follow your joy!
I wanted to share my favorite facial cleanser with you again today. I just cannot get enough of this stuff. I’ve been using a free sample that Avon sent me a while back – you can see the small tube in the picture above. I decided to purchase the larger tube, and I was very pleasantly surprised by the nice large size that it is. I couldn’t tell from the advertising pictures that the tube was this large, so yeah, I’m very happy to have this.
The Rice Water Bright facial foaming cleanser is made with rice water — the milky white water that comes from rinsing rice. It is enriched with vitamins A, B, and E, ceramide, soapwort extract (to keep skin looking clear and bright), and minerals. This foaming cleanser is actually a cleanser and moisturizer in one.
I love how my face feels after I wash with this. The texture of the Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser is like whipped cream.
It is very rich and creamy, but yet you do not get any greasy residue after rinsing at all. My face feels very clean and lightly moisturized.
And it smells very pretty. I’ve described the aroma to you before as smelling like soft pink. If soft pink had an aroma, this is what it would smell like to me. It is not a strong perfumy aroma at all, very light and pleasant.
This cleanser is a pleasure to use. That is my best description. The texture is a pleasure – it has a pearlesque look to the cream. The aroma is a pleasure, and the way my face looks and feels after use is a pleasure. It foams up very nicely when you add a bit of water while washing your face.
You’ve gotta try it! I really think you’ll love it.
The price is $11.00 for this very large tube, regularly $13.00, so a great deal as well.
I follow my Rice Water Bright facial cleansing with The Therapy Oil Blending Cream which has sandalwood, avocado and palmarosa leaves. I feel totally pampered, and I love using facial products with natural ingredients.
I also wanted to note that I left the outer plastic covering on my new tube of Rice Water Bright to let you see that it arrives nicely sealed. After removing the plastic covering there is also a seal when you unscrew the lid. So no one’s had their nose to it giving it a smell or opening it and giving it a try. It is fresh and brand new, and delivered right to you! This is a very important factor to me when I purchase personal care items, and yet another reason why I love Avon, and love ordering my products from them. I feel confident that my products are safe.
Okay, well, that’s going to do it for me today. You know I’ll be back with more Avon goodness to share with you very soon. We’ll be going dental hygiene next time with some new Perioe products that I just purchased from Avon – they’re really cute and cool, so stay tuned!
Happy Monday everyone! How are you doing? Hope you’ve had some good news your way. Seems like things are finally moving in a more positive direction. So happy!
And speaking of happy, I was so happy to receive my very own care package from Avon the other day. I went with a skin moisturizing theme for my package. It’s always comforting to have soft, well moisturized skin all over.
And in my care package, my number 1 must-have item was The Therapy Oil Blending Cream. I LOVE this so much. I had ran out, and decided to wait till the next campaign to order more. Big mistake. It was horrible being without it! I’ll not make that mistake again. But anyway… I wanted to show you how this incredible oil/cream formula arrives, and what you’ll experience upon opening.
Can you see that there is a top layer of essential oils? Underneath is the cream formula. Do not worry, the top layer is not runny. It has more of a light gel consistency. That’s one of the really cool features of this oil blend facial cream.
Here is Avon’s full description:
The Therapy Skin Care 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.
BENEFITS • Leaves skin visibly smooth and glowing with essential oils that provide an all-in-one blending formula of anti-aging + hydration + nourishing • Sandalwood (anti-aging), avocado (moisturizing) and palmarosa leaves (nourishing)
Fresh Oil Carrier Technology The secret is in the formula! Low temperature technology is used to meticulously blend the top and bottom layers to deliver deep moisture and a smooth hydration barrier on the skin’s surface.
KEY INGREDIENTS • 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.
TO USE Use AM and PM as necessary. On first use, blend oil and cream with spatula provided. Use on cleansed skin, following any treatments.
And here’s how the cream looks after blending:
You only have to blend it the one initial time. It stays together as a very rich, but light cream. This goes into my skin very well and is not greasy in the least bit. My skin drinks it up. I just dab it all over – a bit on my cheeks, forehead, nose, chin, and neck areas and then rub in all over in light circular motions. I like to follow up with the Green Goddess Facial Oil. A little of this goes a long way, and helps with any red blotchiness as it calms and eases the skin.
And for my other skin care items,
I decided to also treat my hands, feet and lips to some extra moisturizing. My hands have been really dry lately, so I oped for the Avon Care Silicone Glove Hand Lotion. This formula is protective and locks in moisture. It really has worked for me. My hands feel so much better when I’m wearing it. And when I wash my hands, I can still feel it. And bonus – It comes safety sealed.
For my feet, I went for the maximum strength Cracked Heel Cream in Avon’s Footworks line. I have a small area that is beginning to cause an issue, so I thought I’d give this foot cream a try.
This is very calming and comforting for sure. I will be keeping this on hand all the time. Just think when Summer hits and we’ll all be wearing sandals and out in the sun and surf. This will really come in handy. So you may want to stock up and be ready. Avon has a full line of foot creams, here’s a link so you can browse and find a formula perfect for your foot care needs.
And for some extra lip moisture,
Avon’s Moisture Therapy Intensive Healing and Repair Lip Treatment. Wow, that’s a mouth-full! Haha! But seriously, this is some serious moisture for lips, and it’s fragrance free, which I love for a lip treatment. I was actually quite surprised at how light the formula is. I was expecting something perhaps a bit more heavy feeling, but this is really light and easy to wear.
So there you have it! My very own skin care, self-care package! I love my Avon products so much and find that I gain even more favorites the more I try different ones.
I hope you curate a fabulous self-care package all your own. I’d love to see pictures of what you get!
And don’t forget Mom — Mother’s Day is coming up very quickly now, and hopefully you’ll be able to see and hug your dear Mother by then. Put together a fabulous care package for her. Here’s a link to Avon’s Mother Day Gift Guide. No excuses now!
This week holds a lot of excitement. Campaign 11 begins officially Wednesday, so I have a lot of goodies to share with you. There is a lot of new products being released. Not only in Campaign 11, but in the campaigns after that as well. Can’t wait to share it all with you!
Till then, be safe, feel good, and always be fabulous and follow your joy!
