I read some of the other's reviews and I saw some were putting this on their face. So I last night put some on my face on the sides.....It burned like crazy. I don't think this was made for putting on your face so I do not rec. putting this on your face,but It works great on your feet and hands and legs It's a great winter moisturizer for those areas! It is always hard for me to say if I will by something again because I like to try new things all the time,so if I do not hear of anything better I will keep useing this. It comes in a pump bottle and has no scent at all!
For now this is going to be my HG of Mascara's,I holds the curl well,does not clump and makes my lashes look thick,last forever and does not flake! I will just stick with this one,I get so many comments when I wear this mascara and here I was paying 30.00 a peice for the high end brands!
Treatments -Avon - Anew Alternative Intensive Age Treatment [DISCONTINUED]
chickenfingers 10/19/2005 2:00:00 PM
Ok so I have used up my samples from the avon lady, And I am going to tell you the same thing everyone else said! My face looks so clear right now, red spots from old acne are fading fast...So I think I am going to buy a jar of this,I think this stuff was made for fine lines and wrinkles I do not think it does much for them but wow my face is glowing. Like the reviewer below said I don't think that was it's intended purpose! Now it says it may burn a bit if you put on right after you wash your face,and it did so I wait about 10-15 mins after washing to put it on and it's fine. Also I use this in the morning it says to use it once a day and you can use it at night or morning. You can use this undermakeup with no problems,my face looks so clear right now I actually did not put on foundation this morning! The scent of it is just like the anew line and wrinkle corrector,oh and one more thing I break out easy and this does not break me out! The price for this is $32.00 but I am sure it will go on sale but I have no problem paying 32.00 for this because it will last you awhile.
Moisturizers -Avon - ANEW Retroactive plus night repair cream

I love this,it really does work,it works better than any other avon product I have tried. It does not break me out or make my skin oily,my skin looks better since I have been using this product and I will buy again and again,also I am going to say this is avon's best skin care line and the results last,I do not have to use the product everynight. It does have a LIGHT refreshing smell to it. If I had to recommend any of avon's skin care products to anyone this is the one I would tell them to try, I am buying the day cream version of this next to try because I love it so much!
I love the smell of this product,but this is just an average product! But I will say it does make your hair soft and does help with dry ends.I think I am going to try some other products first before I buy this again,I might buy again if I do not find anything better but I probably will find something better!
Styling Products -Garnier - Full Control Hairspray (ultra strong)

Ha not a bad hairspray it's cheap I don't use alot of hairspray just when I go out on the weekends or something smells fruity holds pretty well. I also use this hairspray to spray flies and bee's because they like the smell and I spray them with it and their wings stick together and they fall right down to the floor then I bust out the vaccum and clean them up.
Well for a mascara from Avon this is not bad at all,hold well it does not clump or flake off. Also it does add volume to my lashes and it is cheap! The packaging is okay I like that the wand is really small it helps with getting in the corners of my eyes! I might buy again but so far this is the best mascara I have tried from avon. I have a few more to try tho!
This color is horrible,I like Avon Glazewear but this color would not look good on anyone. I am fair with blonde hair green eyes and yuck not good,I the I will pass on this color in the future,and I would no recommend this color for anyone!
Powder -Cover Girl - Tru Blend Powder foundation [DISCONTINUED]
chickenfingers 7/4/2005 6:54:00 PM
Hey I was in CVS today and thought I would pick this up and try it out! NOT BAD It really matched my skin tone,covered pretty well too! You can't really tell you have any makeup on but you do. I bought this in ivory and I will probably keep using and will probably buy again unless I find something better! The only thing I don't like is the sponge smells like latex or something but I will just use something else to put it on with! I will update in a little bit and tell you if it breaks me out! Oh one more thing I used to use Elizabeth Arden's powder foundation sometimes and this is 500% better and I have Chanel's Double Perfection right now and this is about just as good for under half the price.So bottom line if you like powder and you run out of your high end product pick this up and give it a try!
This is a very good lip stick-treatment, It does make you lips really soft and look very smooth! I don't smell is light maybe like an orange nothing harsh at all! And yes I will agree with other's that this is a little heavy but I do not mind .I will buy this again because my lips look so smooth when it is on! Packaging..this comes in a long metal tube and you twist the color onto a brush that is built in and then apply to your lips. I really like it the color comes up right into the brush! I have this in golden rose looks great on my cool skin! UPDATE OCTOBER 2005, after useing this more and I have come to realize this dries my lips out,I won't buy again!
I like this self tanner,it is not orange at all on me! It is more of a brown with maybe a tiny tiny red tint! I have not had a streaking problem with this at all and usually I do with others I have tried. It is like a clear gel,goes on smooth and dries quick it does have a smell to it but self tanner smell does not bother me. I know some people it does bother them but it does wear off quickly! I like the packaging it is like a wide thin tall plastic sqeeze tube and it is very cheap on sale. Regular price is 9.99 and you have to apply it about once every 2-3 days to keep up on the color and if you do let it fade, it fades nice! (I will buy again)
Mascara -Avon - Beyond Color Lash Fortifying Mascara
chickenfingers 6/20/2005 3:01:00 AM
This mascara is horrible,one of the worst I have ever tried. This mascara flakes more than any other mascara I have ever tried! It DOES not add any length or volume at all to your lashes. Avon had yet to come out with a good mascara!
Mascara -Maybelline - XXL volume+length microfiber mascara
chickenfingers 6/20/2005 2:48:00 AM
Well this is okay it kinda makes my lashes hard and the primer on the wand does not stick the the brush I don't think I will try again.
This dried my hair out,and my husband said it stinks and I agree the smell is not all that great! It reminds you of bug spray,like somebody else mentioned. It dries my hair out and I can't stand that crap,I have something from avon that actually works better than this crap! Overall this product does not work and it is loaded with alcohol and that is not good for your hair at all. I will not buy this ever again I don't even think I will use the rest of the stuff I bought up. Also the packaging is not so great either, the product is in a pump round bottle that can you can close when finised. Now I don't like the package because it is round and it always knocks my other stuff over when I put it back in my large storage space in my bathroom for hair and makeup products and that makes me very upset!
