Cucina (Kitchen) Luxury Hand Soap with Olive Oil

New Cucina Hand Soap by Avon

Happy Monday everyone! What’s new and happening with you? I can tell you that there is definitely a whole lotta new and happening going on over here in Avon Land. It’s all so exciting, and tomorrow is Campaign 4 launch day, with even more new goodness. My head is spinning! But in a good way.

One thing I can tell you about the new items being released by Avon, is that they are definitely more luxe, and this is intentional. With our new CEO at the helm, Avon is going in a new, upward, and definitely trend-making trajectory.

So, the newest and truly “luxe” item that caught my eye was the Fruits and Passion Cucina Hand Soap. I knew immediately that this was for me. I am a foodie and a home cook – I wash my hands a LOT, and my hands pay for this fact with dryness (and I do have my favorite Avon hand cream for that), but it is nice to have a moisturizing hand soap to help prevent the dryness in the first place, right?

Well, this new luxe hand soap line from Avon is just the ticket. It is a gentle, (also biodegradable), natural ingredient, plant-derived formula, which includes olive oil and glycerin, both of which are greatly touted for being super moisturizing.

Cucina Hand Soaps made with Olive Oil

There are 3 formulations to choose from: Grapefruit and Rhubarb (pink soap) – that’s the one I chose to try – it smells sooooo good. I definitely get the grapefruit notes. Not over-powering, just really, really nice, which is another intentional factor of this luxury hand soap, it is exquisitely scented. There is Sea Salt and Amalfi Lemon (white soap), and then also the Coriander and Olive Oil (green soap).

Cucina Luxury Hand Soaps

I love the packaging of this soap as well. Cucina means kitchen in Italian, and these bottles and the ingredients definitely lend to an Italian kitchen feel. So in essence, these cuties look fabulous, feel fabulous on your hands, and smell fabulous.

As you saw from my first picture posted, these hand soaps arrive in a nice white box that says Avon. I think these hand soaps would actually make wonderful gift ideas. I was thinking like a thoughtful gift for your Mom, your Sister, a co-worker, or a teacher, or anyone really. Your bestie would probably love receiving a luxe hand soap, I know I would! Ohhh — How about your cheffy guy friends, and don’t forget to treat yourself as well. These look so pretty in the kitchen.

The Fruits and Passion Cucina Hand Soaps are being launched at the introductory price of $15.00 a bottle – regular price is $19.00. So fabulous!

I’m hoping to post more this week than the last several weeks. I’ve been a bit distracted with the holidays and my birthday – Yay! Very fun distractions, but my brain has been on wanting to get back over here and share all this fun stuffs with all of you.

I celebrated my 55th birthday on January 14th – oh hey! It definitely feels like a marker birthday. It seems like I was just celebrating my 50th, and that was quite a lot to take in, and now I am over 50, and actually really enjoying this stage of my life, being an empty-nester and just following my passions and joys in life. Here’s a pic of my fun little birthday cake:

Man Alive! I’m 55! Yay! Haha! I couldn’t resist a bit of comedy for this. My sweet hubby surprised me with some gorgeous tulips and an all day shopping spree day together and also dinner out. I told you I was enjoying this stage of my life!

But anyway — I’m back here for ya, and ready to rock it big time and keep you in the know on all things Avon fab.

And speaking of Avon fab, be sure to use the code GODDESS when checking out to receive a free sample of Avon’s new Green Goddess Facial Oil. This is good through the end of Campaign 4, so you still have time to get your sample.

And remember also that I am paying for your shipping when you place an order of $60.00 or more. My sincere thank you for your patronage.

Okay gang, I’ll be back very soon with more goodness to share. You’ll not have time to miss me this go around!

True Gent Men’s Fragrance Set from Avon

True Gent Men's Fragrance Set from Avon: https://www.avon.com/product/true-gent-3-piece-set-67245?rrec=true&rep=mybeauty

Hold up! Stop the presses! There’s a new star in town!

Introducing a brand new men’s fragrance from Avon, just on the scent scene, called True Gent.

And let me tell you…. this smells FABULOUS!!! It smells quite expensive too. My first reaction was that it reminded me of a Chanel Coco for men. It has a “I want to sniff your neck” kind of effect. It is not harsh on the nose at all – and I was, along with being a candle maker for many years, also a perfumer, and blended many signature aromas for both candles and fragrances, so I was completely blown away by the delicate blending of the ingredients listed in this formula. That’s what caught my attention right away, was the list of scents that went into the making of True Gent.

The list includes: Laurel Leaf, Bergamot, Tonka Bean, Creamy Musk, Smooth Tobacco, and Vanilla Suede. What a combo! What a scent! It’s hard for me to put it in words… But every note, from the beginning, to middle, to end, is just wonderful. It ends on a very soft and smooth note, which I pick up at the very beginning as well, I believe this must be the Vanilla Suede – it’s both soft and masculine. Avon describes True Gent as “a masculine scent that is sensitive yet strong.” I totally agree.

The picture above is the set I purchased for my Husband as an anniversary gift. We both really love this fragrance. I purchased the set from Campaign 11, which was last campaign and I got this 3 piece set for $24.00 with a coupon code. Well, this new campaign, Campaign 12, has it listed at $24.00 without needing a coupon! Yay! Regular list price for this set is $48.00, and the spray bottle listed on its own is $35.00, so hey, you may want to take advantage of this great deal while you can. Campaign 12 is live till May 28th.

Now’s a great time to think about Father’s Day gifts, so snag it now and you’ll be set to go. There are other fabulous Father’s Day gift ideas listed now as well on my Avon site like a Mesmerize Sports Car Decanter Cologne, other fragrance gift sets, jewelry and watches.

Okay gang — I’ll sign out for now. Hope you’ll stop by and check out all the specials and deals going on for Campaign 12. Remember, you can still shop the book – It’s a virtual Avon book which you can peruse by clicking the arrows to turn the pages, or you can shop by category. Have fun, and I’ll see you next time!

Scented Candles from Avon

Scented Candles from Avon
Pink Prosecco Candle and Melon Macaron Candle from Avon

The candles have arrived! So exciting! I wasn’t expecting them till Monday, but they came in Thursday. Just in time too, with all the storms we’ve been having here in Southeast Texas. And they smell soooooo good!! Wish there was smell-o-vision already!

I’m so impressed with these. They come in a really nice box as you can see. These are perfect for gifts, which, one of these is for my Husband’s Aunt’s 90th birthday. I think she’ll really love the Pink Prosecco Candle. It has the aromas of champagne and citrus with a hint of rose. I thought it would be the perfect celebratory candle for her.

I ordered the Melon Macaron Candle for our home. My Husband and I both love vanilla types of aromas and this one smells really really yummy. When I smell it I can almost taste it! And I have to tell you, I was a candle maker for 9 years, and I liked to load my candles with scent, and this one is really good. I cannot wait to burn it. The aromas in this one are sugared vanilla (oh yeah!), strawberries, watermelon, coconut milk and musk. It has a real depth to the smell. I’m impressed again.

And I like that they come with a nice lid too. It’s a vacuum type lid and seals in the aroma when not burning the candle. These candles have 30 hours of burning time. The heft is nice, they weigh 11 ounces. The glass is nice and thick, and the pictures are really pretty. So, for the price of these, they are really a fabulous find. They list originally at $19.99 each, but there is a special right now and you can get 2 for $24.00. Garden Party Candles this is the direct link to the special.

I hope you all have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend and that you’re staying high and dry. I’m hoping for a beautiful weekend myself, and I’m going to enjoy burning my new candle!

Cheers! Jfay
