I tested this perfume in the department store and I loved it. Went out and bought a bottle the next day, have been wearing it to work and now I cant stand it. It smells spicy and is too strong.
I liked this fragrance when I tried it on in the shop so I bought a bottle. However it didn't take me long to get sick of it. I find it a bit overpowering, though I am forcing myself to finish the bottle. One thing I can say is that these bottles take for ever to run out and their staying power is good. I wont be buying again and I cant wait to finish the bottle.
I used the schwarzkopf live silver toner to tone down brassiness in my hair. It only toned down the brassiness slighly, I have shoulder length curly hair and had to use two packets. I left it on for the maximum 45 minutes, and you can hardly notice the difference. You get harldy any product at all. My hair felt like straw afterwards. I do not recomened.
Polishes -Avon - Avon Speed Dry Nail Enamel (various colors)

I love the packaging, I love how it dries so quickly, but I hate how it starts chipping off within a few hours. The time you save with the quick dry formula, quickly disappears with the constant touch-ups needed to repair all the chips. Very disappointed.
Treatments -Olay - Total Effects Intensive Restoration Treatment

Although this product did not get rid of my slight crows feet, it did stop them from getting worse. I would repurchase again, but first I will try other treatments to see if they can get rid of my crows feet before they become a real problem. This product did get rid of my dark circles, and if they come back now that I am taking a break from the product, I will start using again immediatley, and update this review.
I really like this fragrance, it is very unusual. I am not sure what fragrance family it is from, but I will definatley get another bottle when it comes on special.
I was given a small bottle of this when I was nine months pregnant. I didn't start using it until after I gave birth, so I don't know if it works for stretch marks or not. But it smells lovely, and made my skin feel nice and soft.
Skincare - Face -Johnson & Johnson - pH 5.5 3-in-1 Facial Cleansing Cloths

I wasn't impressed with these cleansing cloths. It took 2-3 cloths to remove all my makeup, and then my skin still didn't feel clean. I had to follow up with a toner just to get that clean feeling.
Liquid -Maybelline - Ever Fresh Makeup [DISCONTINUED]

This foundation gives medium coverage, but I need full coverage. By mid morning it is sliding off my face, but does stay put with a good dose of translucant powder. There are better foundations out there, so I will not be re-purchasing.
Hair -Avon - Advance Techniques Deep Conditioning Mask

I foil and tint my hair, and it is also naturally curly and dry. I use this treatment when I am just hanging around the house. I leave it on for a couple of hours, and my hair feels so much better and healthier afterwards. I would definatley buy this again.
Fragrances -Avon - Naturals in Mango and Passion Fruit

I found this to be a bit strong. When I spray it the stuff goes right up my nose, and makes me sneeze. The smell is also cheap and sickly. Will not repurchase.
I didn't notice any improvement in my skin at all, after using a whole bottle of this stuff, every night for a month or two. I still have pigmentation and open pores. Maybe 10% vitamin C isn't enough, to me it was a pointless step in my skincare routine.
I bought this in the roll on mini size and also in the moisturising body spritz. I like the smell, but it is a little bit light, so I am going to get the perfume next and try that. Will update my review once I have tried the perfume.
I have used up a bottle of this fragrance, which I loved when I first bought it off my sister. My husband didn't like it much, but I did get compliments of other people when I wore it. I would not purchase this fragrance as there are much nicer ones out there, but i would use it if someone gave me a bottle.
Lotions/ Creams -Avon - Naturals - Gardenia Body Lotion

I loved the whole avon naturals gardenia range and am disapointed they no longer sell it. They keep on bringing out these nice products, only to discontinue them. I would definatley buy this product again, if I could.
