I’m an Avon Indep. Sales Rep. With Sensitive Skin

I decided to start a blog that lets me explain why I like certain Avon products and for who each product is best for. Also, I like to share Avon beauty buzzes good deals as they come up.

I’m an Avon skin care enthusiast with sensitive, combination skin, melasma around my eyes and with medium color skin with pink undertone. I’m almost 40 years old, and yes, I use Avon products. Why? Because they are affordable and have great quality. (It’s just not sustainable to be dropping lots of money at Sephora or at high-end beauty shops every few months). As a women with sensitive skin, I have to be careful with which products I have to use. I’m not saying every Avon skin care product works well with my skin, but that’s one amazing thing about Avon – there is a lot to choose from based on your skin care needs. Plus, they are always working on bringing customers new, on-trend beauty products such as the Anew Hydra Fusion line AND Avon X The Face Shop.

My Avon shop offers free shipping on orders $40+ (no promo code needed). First-time customers get 10% off their order with prom code WELCOME10.

Skincare Routine For Fall/Winter 2020 – From Someone Who has Dry, Sensitive Skin

November 11, 2020 – It’s the dry season again, and my skin definitely knows it! The area around my nostrils, mouth and cheeks are dry, rough and red (they sting if I don’t moisturize). My lips are dry. My body gets dry and itchy. I’m going to explain how I combat dry skin. Note: I have sensitive, combination skin, so if you have sensitive skin, this blog post might be helpful!

Body

I wash and exfoliate my body with a loofah everyday. Therefore, I have to use a creamy, moisturizing body wash like Moisture Therapy Intensive Healing & Repair Body Wash. I like that this body wash is meant for extra-dry skin, is fragrance-free and hypoallergenic. It lathers nicely and is affordable. I don’t have to use a lot per wash.

After I shower and dry myself, I moisturize my body with the following awesome mixture:

I mix them in the palm of my hands, before applying the soothing mixture all over my body. This keeps my skin supple, extra hydrated and non-itchy beyond 24 hours. It doesn’t leave a greasy residue.

*When I don’t use the oil + lotion mixture, I’ll use Skin So Soft Original Bath Oil Spray. I spray my body in the shower so that the oil droplets don’t end up on my bathroom floor.

Face

Face – Morning Routine

In the morning, I cleanse my face with Anew Ultimate Cream Cleanser. This is not a foaming cleanser and does not strip away the oils on my skin. I apply it directly on dry skin (no water) and massage in circular motion, then I rinse with warm water. It leaves the skin soft and hydrated.

Afterwards, I moisturize with Dr. Belmeur Advanced Cica Hydro Cream which is meant for sensitive skin. It contains cica and hyaluronic acid. (Cica or Tiger Grass has been used in Eastern medicine for a long time, because of its healing qualities. It is called “Tiger Grass,” because tigers roll around in Cica to heal their wounds). This moisturizer leaves my skin supple, hydrated and soothes the dry, irritated parts of my face. Another product I use sometimes is the Green Goddess Facial Oil which conains CBD oil which also soothes dry, irritated skin.

Face – Night Routine

I have combination skin, so even though some parts of my face gets dry and irritated, other parts (forehead, nose and temples) can still breakout. At night, I cleanse with Dr. Belmeur Amino Clear Bubble Foaming Cleanser (non-drying facial cleanser for acne-prone skin) during my shower. I massage it on my face in circular motion for about a minute focusing on the oily parts of my face.

Afterwards, I apply a serum and night cream. I apply the Dr. Belmeur Cica Peptite Ampoule which contains cica and peptides. This concentrated serum protects, heals and soothes my skin. It helps strengthen my skin’s moisture barrier. When I open the bottle, the dropper automatically sucks up the right amount for one use. It leaves my skin feeling supple and soothed. Finally, I apply my Anew Skinvincible Deep Recovery Cream which is unscented, hypoallergenic, suitable for sensitive skin, non-greasy and non-comedogenic.

My entire routine keeps my skin happy.

LYRD Artisan Fragrances Review

Unisex Fragrance

In October 2020, Avon introduced a new gender-neutral fragrance collection created by master perfumers – LYRD Artisan. There are two eau de parfums in the collection which brings on images of class and sophistication when I breath in the fragrances.

LYRD Artisan Cherry Vetiver Eau de Parfum

LYRD Artisan Cherry Vetiver Eau de Parfum

I have never smelled “cherry” except in children’s Tylenol, so I was curious as to how this scent was going to work when it was first introduced. Now that I have smelled it, I am in love with it! The LYRD Artisan Cherry Vetiver Eau de Parfum has a very smooth, decadent scent; The light cherry scent is countered by a soft, woodsy fragrance. It does NOT smell like children’s Tylenol at all. When I close my eyes and inhale the Cherry Vetiver Eau de Parfum, the image that comes to mind is a confident, classy, professional woman in her age 40’s or above. I’m in love with this eau de parfum and would definitely wear this to a job interview. Although LYRD Artisan is gender-netural, Cherry Vetiver Eau de Parfum smells more feminine than the Santal Musk fragrance.

LYRD Artisan Santal Musk Eau de Parfum

LYRD Artisan Santal Musk Eau de Parfum

The LYRD Artisan Santal Musk Eau De Parfum has a more masculine fragrance compared to the Cherry Vetiver Eau de Parfum, but I can understand why it is considered gender-neutral, because there is a thin layer of sweetness with the sandalwood, musk scent. When I close my eyes and inhale the Santal Musk Eau de Parfum, I think of a sophisticated gentleman during Fall or Winter. I honestly do not think of a woman when I smell this eau de parfum. Because of the gold top and forest green bottle, I feel this would make a beautiful gift.

Ultimately, my favorite LYRD Artisan is the Cherry Vetiver Eau de Parfum, because it is so smooth, and I like the hint of decadent cherry. Other scents that I enjoy are Haiku Kyoto Flower Eau de Parfum and the Sparkling Vanilla Champagne Body Mist (no longer available).

Every year the holiday items sell so fast, that so many people complain that they weren’t able to grab what they were eyeing. Don’t claim I never warned you all! 🙂

I made a video of our C24 online brochure with nice French-themed music. Enjoy and shop early!

DIY Super Soft, Non-Sticky Play Dough

I’m a mom of a 5 year old son, and if you have kids or grandkids, you know that play dough doesn’t always get placed back into their containers then end up drying up overnight. Instead of taking a trip to the store with the kids, you can probably make your own play dough with what you have at home. Not just any play dough, but the super soft, non-sticky kind that won’t crumble. The recipe below makes a super soft play dough with a nice scent.

WARNING: This play dough is not suitable for kids that eat play dough!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup of flour
  • 1/4 cup baby powder (or cornstarch)
  • 1/4 cup of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of Skin So Soft Bath Oil
  • 3/4 cup water
  • Food coloring

Directions:

  1. In a pot, mix all the dry ingredients.
  2. Mix the wet ingredients into the pot.
  3. Add food coloring to the mixture.
  4. Heat the mixture over the stove in low heat.
  5. Keep stirring the mixture until the dough doesn’t stick to your finger when you touch it.
  6. Take the dough out of the pot and put it in a zip lock bag or plastic food container.
  7. If you feel the dough is too hot to play with, cover the container or close the plastic bag and put it in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes.
  8. The play dough is ready for play!

Storage

When not in use, store your homemade play dough in a zip lock bag or plastic food container in the refrigerator to make it last longer. It can be stored for up to 3 months.
