I have been using Ponds FOREVER and when I went to the store to pick up the cucumber cold cream and couldn't find it I chose this one. So glad I did too!! My face feels so clean and no dry and tight at all. Harsh New England Winter weather wreaks havoc on my skin and this cleanser is great!! I am going to stock up on this magical gift just as soon as I can!

A friend got me started on this line and all I can say is WOW!! Quality and value! Love it! I have other products from this line too and they are all fabulous. If you are on the fence about trying this or any other skin care product from Jafra, I say give it a try. Nice line and nice prices.

I actually like this for my hair. It left it feeling soft and smooth and no frizz.
Well, if not for MUA this would not have ever been in my shopping cart,but, based on the reviews I wanted to try it. I cannot believe how well this stuff works. I have NEVER been impressed by a Maybelline mascara EVER but this one is great! I was impressed right off the bat. No clumping, no goop. It went on nice and smooth, seperated my lashes and did extend them. I did not expect much at all. My only complaint are the product chambers are extremely small. It seems you get more of the case and not enough of the product. Perhaps they should sell an extra primer and mascara with it. Other than that WOW is all I can say. Nice one Maybelline!
I really like this at first and purchased the lotion, shower gel and roller ball. First of all, the roller rolled but didn't put out any fragrance. I had to sit and pry the roller ball off just so I could get to the perfume. Once I finally did it was a gel like consistency, not off putting, but I did find it weird. Anyway, I recently discovered the Unplugged fragrance and love it ten times more. The staying power is much better than SIS. So, bottom line, it doesn't suck but it is not blowing me away, not that I was expecting to be blown away by an AVON fragrance. Although, Unplugged is very, very nice. I put it on at 7am and it is now 3pm and I can still smell it on me.
I bought the set after trying only a paper sample of this. I believe this scent is very new to the line and may not even be on the website yet. If you are a fan of clean, woodsy, and exotic, then I recommend this one. It is the complete opposite of that annoying overly fruity, florally, icky, sticky scents. So very nice and has great staying power. The deal is now you can get the perfume spray for $30 and get a free shower gel and lotion which are both equally nice. I wasn't expecting much from Avon but I like this one alot. I am going to purchase 2 more of this set.

Shocked that I love this so much! The redness in my cheeks has substantially subsided and love how it is not greasy, not one bit! It's a little pricey but considering what some drug stores are selling Olay and Loreal for it really is not that much more. I stocked up recently on it just in case Avon decides to discontinue it. I will continue to purchase so as long as I keep getting great results!!
I buy this line over and over again! I most love when a product does what the label says it does...QUICK DRY!!! I love the espresso color and this one. I also have a few other colors and everyone one I have enjoyed. I hope they never stop making this formula. Honestly, you can give yourself a manicure in a flash! The toes too...perfect!! I can't say enough great things about this polish!!

Love this!! Perfect nude on me!! I also have the pink truffle which is flattering as well. Love these new lip butters!
So far so good! I was actually expecting to return this. I like it. I like the little brush. You can get every single lash. It's my first time with this type of brush so very happy so far.

Never have been a fan of Avon lipsticks, except for their balms and glazewear lip glosses. This one has changed my mind! I put this lipstick on at 7:30ish, had coffee & lunch, it is now 12:50pm and I still have lipstick ON!!! There is no god awful smell, goopy, globby mess. The bit of shimmer is tolerable, even the tube is nice. I can't believe this is Avon! I wish I had known I would have liked this so much I would have stocked up. If you prefer a brownish shade with a bit of shimmer, then try this one.
The only way to wash your face!! It doesn't strip your face of natural oils. When you use a foamy wash, guess what?? All the detergent agents they add to the product literally does more harm than good. I too use the wash cloth method and my skin is perfect!! This is the only makeup remover for me! Just be sure to rinse thoroughly!
Cleansers -Ponds - Deep Cleanser and Makeup Remover With Cucumber Extract

I always keep this around. I slather on a thin layer over a dry face full of makeup including my eyes. Then I grab a dry washcloth or sometime I get it wet with lukewarm water. I go in upward strokes to remove my makeup. I then take the washcloth and run it under hot water and press it on my face. It feels so good, my pores are open and I feel totally relaxed. You don't have to scrub hard, just let the washcloth do the work. Sometimes I don't even need a cream b/c my face is smooth and soft. I like using this during the winter months.
I recently rediscovered this scent while returning to Avon for other products I like. I bought the skin softener and just put a dab on my hands before work. While driving I kept going, "what is that smell?" I couldn't believe it was Far Away. It is so soft and warm. I love this scent!!
