The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

I fought off testing out Avon’s MagiX Face Perfector for years before finally giving into all the pressure from customers and team members to just try it out.  Why?  Because I have picky sensitive skin.  Nearly every time I try something new, my face rewards me with breakouts; and if it really doesn’t like a product, I get the ultimate prize: cystic acne.  This fact alone made me gun shy, but add to that the knowledge that this product intentionally covers up your pores to create the illusion of a flawless finish and the deal was sealed: I wasn’t ever going to try this thing.  No way, no how.

Ladies, let’s talk about our facial hair – REMOVING IT!  I’d managed to go 45 years without removing the fine blonde peach fuzz on my chin and cheeks, but finally decided I’d be willing to test out Avon’s Skin So Soft Fresh & Smooth Sensitive Skin Facial Hair Removal Cream since I’d had so many people ask me about it.  I noticed the fuzz when applying foundation/powder – it would cake on the hairs and I hated that. Probably nobody else noticed, but I did…

All the hot bronzers, highlighters and shimmer powders on the beauty market have 46-year-old me groaning.  Middle-aged ladies generally have fine (if not medium to deep) lines to worry about and bringing attention to them is not what we want.  In addition, many of them have so much glitter content it looks like we’re sadly trying to recapture our clubbing days.

I adore Avon’s Beyond Color Lipstick line! The shades are on the more traditional side, which really suits me. While I like several shades in the line, my go to shade is Truffle – a deep brick red-brown. I can slather it on for a saturated and dramatic look or I can blot it to achieve various lighter versions including one that makes my lips look as though I’ve been nibbling them…a warm dark pinkish shade.

Some of you are aware that I enjoy hiking. The bugs…not so much. This is where Avon’s Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus IR3535 Aerosol Spray comes in!  I prefer aerosol sprays because I like efficiency – who wants to spend 10 precious minutes guarding themselves against bug gangs?  Not me!
