There's never any pressure to sell at Avon, but we will train you and equip you so you can be the best Avon Lady you can be.
Since I joined I've really enjoyed trying all sorts of Avon products and picking out my favourites. Here's one that I just started using that I think is pretty fantastic!
AVON ELEMENTS youth restoring multi purpose lotion + serum
In our current campaign (8) you can buy two items on pages 82-83 for 14.99 which is a 60% savings. I love this lotion because it's not only hydrating (e.g. water) it's also moisturizing (oil) which my very dry skin needs. It also is nourishing (plant ceramides) which my skin seems to need as well. Love it!
Any of the avon elements products are great for sensitive skin! Find what works for you, we have all sorts of different types of products, for everybody!
Our 12 items for $30 Deal is back so if you need to stock up (for gifts or just if you love to save!), this is a great opportunity!

The weekend is coming everyone, I'm pretty excited! Have a good rest of the week and blog at you soon!
And the sun bursts through the clouds, reminding us all that there is life left to be lived after a Vancouver winter. I use the term 'winter' loosely of course. Here on the west coast, we seldom get the chance to watch the snow fall in front of a roaring fire. But we do get to light candles on a drizzly day, have a hot bath when we're soaked to the bone from playing outside, eat chicken noodle soup to the sound of pitter-pattering on the roof above. I don't know about you but i've gotten creative at times to brighten up dreary days using fresh, happy scents, cheerful colours, and upbeat music. Don't all Vancouverites have a bit of Seasonal Affective Disorder? Isn't it impossible to escape the effects of the changes in light? Feel free to share below different things you've tried to lift your mood or create one specifically. Here are some suggestions from the Campaign 6 Brochure that will help set a mood this spring!
A lot of women just FEEL better when they have lipstick on! I wonder if they've studied this phenomenon? lol Shop now for $7.99 from $10 or wait for Campaign 8 (5 lipsticks for $20!)

I wish you fabulous feelings today and until my next blog :) To shop for any of these items and others, click the links below.
This is a blog specifically for those of you who are PARCHED this time of year, or all year round! I FEEL YOUR PAIN. All day long I habitually apply lotions and creams, oils, moisturizers: YOU NAME IT to create some type of barrier against the dry air. I have a product at all of my stations: In the car, in my purse, on the armrest of the couch, on the nightstand, and of course in the bathroom. I wonder sometimes what it must be like not to have eczema, to be able to shower and go, and to not have these bottles of products everywhere. But I guess everyone has their thing :)
I get eczema on my face (of all places), my neck and décolleté, and the inside of my elbows. For a few years when it first became a problem the doctors misdiagnosed it so I had no idea how to treat it and it got out of hand. I finally figured it out (by process of elimination) and went to the actual Eczema Society of Canada (www.eczemahelp.ca) and learned there what I had been doing wrong all along. If it helps, this is in a nutshell what I learned, but go to the website and research for yourself if you think you may have eczema.
1. Wash the area twice per day
2. Moisturize after washing while the area is still damp
3. DON'T SCRATCH!
4. If the area itches, put more moisturizer on it
Those four points have helped me to get my eczema under control.
One thing that's really important is finding a good quality cream, one that won't irritate the already broken skin, that will moisturize and provide a barrier.
What many people don't know is that Avon has great products for sensitive/eczema prone skin. Our Moisture Therapy Derma 'Soothing' line is accepted by the National Eczema Association. Really any of the moisture therapy line will help most people. Right now we have a body wash and a body lotion in the 'Soothing' line. I'm hoping they'll bring out a hand cream too!
These products are on for $7.99 (reg. $12) in the current campaign so stock up! I'm not too too sensitive so I can use Avon's other moisturizers, I find they are good enough on healthy areas of skin, but on my eczema I have to use a product like this one.
I love Skin So Soft for the bath, the way it LOCKS the moisture into my skin and really it's an easier way to moisturize than applying lotion ;) Okay yes I'm lazy lol! If I dunk my head i'll have the greasies until i shower but i just put my hair up and let my hair soak in all that oil. Anybody else got dry hair too? lol
Here's the new packaging for Skin So Soft:
The 500 ml bottle is $9.99 from $16.99 in Campaign 6.
So Avon really wants to be there for you with all the moisture you need day to day.
I went to my Avon meeting tonight and I want to prepare you for a lipstick sale coming up in Campaign 8. Don't buy any lipstick until then! 5 lipsticks for $20!
Hey, thanks for reading and here's a gratuitous picture of my cat just because I can:
lol Take care and until next time,
Or something like that! When I was a Girl Guide many, many, many years ago, that was our motto. Nowadays I still make crafts like I did back then, I plan camping trips that I rarely go on, but most of my forays into the forest are when I'm geocaching. Geocaching, for any of you who don't know yet, is basically a treasure hunt. You use an app on your phone to locate a Cache in your area and you travel to it on foot using a compass. The caches are disguised in tricky ways so that others not looking for them won't accidentally stumble upon them; your spidey senses need to be fully engaged. Here's a cache I found yesterday just behind the apartment building where I live. There are probably caches within walking distance from your home too:
Do you see it? It's a little magnetic box attached to the back of this lamp post. Inside is a small piece of paper to record your geocaching alias. Sometimes the caches are much bigger with small items inside to trade. Every time you find a cache, you log it with geocaching.com and gradually your list of finds grows.
Must Haves For the Journey:
SkinSoSoft has so many benefits and uses, one of which is as an insect repellent! Have a SkinSoSoft bath in the morning and be bug free for your romp in the wilderness, your friends will stick close to you lol A large size bottle is half price in Campaign 5 ($9.99)
Sunscreen (of course). All the effort we put into our skin can be undone quickly by a few hours in the sun. Avon Skin Revitalize with Aronia Berry Complex SPF 20 $15.99 Buy one get 1 for 99 cents on pages 76-77 of C 5
Lipstick! I know, what kind of girl guide troop was I a part of? I suggest bringing lipstick because you never know who you'll meet ;) I fell in love with my boyfriend geocaching... aaaah so long ago... Ultra Color Lipstick (not pictured here) is 20% off in Campaign 5, that's $7.99 from $10
This is my current favourite Avon perfume for geocaching. Why? See above! The 3 pc collection of Luck for Her (including Eau de Parfum spray, Shower Gel, and Body Lotion) are on for $30 from $65 in C5
I'm pretty excited that we're starting to see some nicer weather, I'm hoping to get out more and find some caches. Have a great week and let me know if you need anything from C5 or C6,
Thot I'd give you a little sneak peek into a new product coming up in Campaign 7. I'm taking preorders now! It's ANEW's Clinical Overnight Hydration Mask. Unlike heavier creams and masks, the ultra-lightweight gel formula is absorbed by skin instantly and works while you sleep. This means, you don't have to leave it on for a specified amount of time and there's no need to wipe or wash it off! It can be worn over your Anew Night Cream :)
I can tell already this product will be popular, women of all ages want a hydrated, youthful-looking complexion. Dehydration is a top skin care concern among women, and many don't know that dehydrated skin can accelerate the look of aging by emphasizing fine lines and wrinkles.
The Clinical Overnight Hydration Mask infuses the skin with moisture during the night- a vital repair time for skin. Use 3x per week alone or with your Anew regimen.
$22.00 in C7 Reg. $32
I'll have samples to hand out at the end of February, I can't wait to try it! Contact me for your sample or to preorder!
