Self Tanners -Banana Boat - Summer Color Sunless Lotion Deep Dark
Ayla 4/27/2013 11:00:00 PM
I have been using this every day for a week after my shower. I mix it ( about a dollop the size of a quarter of each) in the palm of my hand with my favoirite body lotion -Skin So Soft Firm Restore Body Lotion.and apply.to each area at a time This combo not only firms my skin but the self tanner gives me a nice tan . I haven't had any steaking and love the scent.I have not used this self tanner before but the reviews were good on all boards so I'm glad I went along with them..I'll give it another few days of applications and then update this review.I do tan easily but if you're very fair skinned I would suggest using the Light/Medium.
Treatments -Avon - ANEW PLATINUM Night Tourmaline Emulsion
Ayla 2/3/2013 9:05:00 AM
I hesitated to purchase this product since my skin wasn't terribly dry (until this awful winter weather hit) I was pleasantly surprised after reading a couple of reviews stating that it felt sticky. I had no issues at all with this gel. I have used other products in the Platinum line but this one showed results almost immediately-:softer skin and a difference in smile and forehead lines. if you're like me and don't like to pile on skin products to see results this one may be worth a try.
I love this eye cream and although I'm older than the 30 + group it has worked better than any other Avon eye product .The trick is to use a very small amount and not over do it. I start with a tiny amount ,wait a couple of minutes and add more if I need it. it works so well that I can often skip it in the morning if I use it the night before. It helps with under eye puffiness and completely wipes out crows feet and slackness above the eyelid.
Treatments -Shiseido - Bio-Performance Super Corrective Serum

I started out with great hopes for this cream but it didn't pan out.I'm an older gal (ahem) and have taken very good care of my skin over the years but needed an extra boost. I did notice some slight improvement but not enough to justify the cost, since like most serums it comes in a dispenser that doesn't allow you to see how much product remains is problematic for me at least. I think it may be worth a try for younger gals (I don't mean teens)in their 30's and on up.
It's always a battle to keep my hands looking good since they are in water a lot and I don't wear rubber gloves.but I found my holy grail in this skin cream It has made a huge difference in the look of my hands. no more thin crepey skin look it's not a large tube of cream but a little goes a long way and it has a nice scent.
Lotions/ Creams -Avon - SKIN SO SOFT Firm & Restore Body Lotion
Ayla 11/30/2012 3:26:00 PM
I have tried so many skin firming lotions from the very expensive to the very inexpensive and none have worked as well as this product. I especially like it for that unsightly area under my upper arms that is so hard to get rid of or at least control. After using it for a few days I also realized that my knees (which my darling children told me looked --OLD) now look darn good! If you're looking for a nice firming lotion give this one a try.Also there is no noticeable scent for those who don't care for that extra.
Self Tanners -Fake Bake - flawless self tan liquid
Ayla 7/2/2012 9:48:00 AM
This review is for Fake Bake Skinny Solution I love this self tanner although it's a tad pricey I have found that if you add a few drops to an inexpensive firming self tanner such as Walmart brand Equate you can achieve a great tan look at a much cheaper price. Either way the tanner is terrific and you can use it on your face
Lips -Avon - PERFECT WEAR Plump & Stay Lip Color - Plump Peach
Ayla 7/1/2012 10:46:00 AM
I love this lip color as an older woman (ahem) I have a lot of trouble finding a lipstick and/or plumper that really works the gloss does plump and the color stays on you won't have over inflated lips but you will see a difference
I wanted to try this instead of blowing money on much more expensive brand.I had looked at. I bought it in Light and am really happy with the results. I have thin fairly dark brows and this product filled them in nicely Use TREAT at night for: 1) growing in thin or patchy brows 2) growing back plucked brows, (worked on me after years of plucking!) 3) soft healthy brows with less fall out 4) Works as brow "hair gel" if you want to comb brows into pretty shape at night after applying ;). The TAME side is good for: 1) A thickening coating of color on brow hairs that stays better than pencil or gel. 3) Filling in patchy areas on brows. Tame really sticks to skin. 4) Sets as a flexible "fixative" so you can comb or or brush up brows with decent hold. Tips: Tame can be messy til you get the hang of it. To get it on right: - Wipe brush on inside of container. - Brush along natural line of brow and let it DRY before shaping. OR use Tame brush to color and shape, then use a swab to wipe excess before it drys. 2) To fill in bare patches, dip eyeliner brush in Tame. I use ELF Studio Angled Eyeliner brush to draw in little hairs where I need them. Let Tame dry before touching or applying other makeup to avoid smudging. 2) If your brows are thin but too dark, use as light shade of Tame to thicken and subtly lighten.
I pulled this jar out of a bunch of face creams that I had stopped using and found it did a better job of diminishing fine lines and wrinkles better than the more expensive creams and serums on the market now..
Treatments (Eye) -Neutrogena - Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream
Ayla 2/20/2012 11:02:00 AM
I have tried so many eye creams without much luck. I took a chance on this one and I love it. Be sure that you only use a tiny drop and that your skin is completely clean and dried before applying it. I am seeing a huge improvement in the skin around my eyes and under eye bags and darkness.
Skincare - Body -Avon - SKIN SO SOFT Perfecting Oil
Ayla 10/20/2011 2:12:00 PM
Very disappointed with the size of container--seems much larger in catalog. ( till you check the ounces ) Hard to dispense-- and really needs a squeeze tip top to save every drop if you are paying such a high price for a product. Skin stays oily a long time. Not Avon's best idea. and definitely over priced for 2 ounces of product
As much as I like the mascara I dislike the oversized brush which is clumsy to use especially if you have short sparse lashes, the mascara itself has started to get gloppy in the tube after only a few uses. Itís not a keeper. For me
Treatments (Eye) -Unlisted Brand - Dr. LeWinn Under Eye Recovery Daily Treatment
Ayla 9/2/2011 8:51:00 AM
I'm still on the fence with this product. I have been using it twice a day for almost two weeks for under eye bags and have noticed a slight improvement. The instructions specify that it takes 30 days so Iím going to complete the trial and see what happens. On the plus side I like the consistency of the cream. It has no scent and does seem to moisturize the under eye area a bit. update Oct 20 th I have returned it to the store since it did nothing for my undereye area.
Lotions/ Creams -Avon - Anew Ultimate Total Body Age Defy Cream
Ayla 4/24/2011 8:32:00 AM
The product is expensive if you use it twice a day it wonít last long. Aside from that I dislike the jar, itís too messy. They need to come up with a better method of dispensing the cream.. The cream has lovely scent and feel to it but I donít think itís a winner for older gals,. Update May 29,2011 I am at the bottom of the jar and have actually seen skin improvement over the past week Looks like it took longer than I expected so I will be repurchasing the cream. Update June 3, 2011 If you want the jar to last longer apply it to damp skin, it works just as well.
