Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

It’s Favorites Friday!!

I started using Avon’s Anew Hydra Fusion Nighttime Facial Treatment as a demo before it was released for sale to the general public.  With the fall weather (now fully into winter), my face needed a little more moisturizing than it usually does in warmer temps, particularly the skin on the tip and around my nose.  

Thick hair usually doesn’t accommodate high ponytails easily.  The weight of the hair pulling on the scalp creates headaches and hair ties slip as the day goes on – leaving us looking worn out and cranky.  If you are a lover of high ponytails (like me), I’ll let you in on my secret weapon to achieving the look I want without having to suffer from the negative side effects: DOUBLE (or triple) up on your elastics!

I know cleansers aren’t sexy to talk about, but they are mandatory to use!  Whether you go for the top shelf super duper expensive cleansers, a regular bar of soap or something in between (like most of us), we all seek out the best option for our own skin type. 

I have oily skin and have always struggled finding the right cleanser.  Many of them strip away the oils, causing breakouts and patches of dried skin.  It’s beyond frustrating to find the perfect balance between leaving my face feeling clean and not causing additional skin issues.  

Raise your hand if you have floppy ear lobes!  ::raises hand::  

Having floppy ear lobes sure does make being obsessed with earrings a bit more difficult.  As soon as I put on any earring with weight, my lobes droop forward and pull a Dumbo by flopping all over the place. But, wait – I have found a solution: earring back lifters!

I was gifted Avon’s Prime Eau de Toilette trio at a district sales meeting last year when it was initially released.  My teen-aged self was overjoyed!  I occasionally wear men’s fragrances to add spice and interest.
