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.
National Lash Day (Feb. 19) is a day to appreciate both real and false lashes. I love the feminine look of long lashes. If you don’t have long lashes, well neither do I. Mine are short and thin. Luckily, there are mascaras (find your flutter here) and lash serums, and false lashes have become mainstream.
I’m not going to start telling you to throw away everything in your medicine cabinet.Just read.
February 13, 2021 – Let me start off by saying that I am not a “cult” all-natural holistic health kind of girl. I take Advil when in pain, and I gladly accepted the epidural during labor. When I disinfect, I reach for bleach, ethanol or isopropyl before I’d reach for tea tree oil. However, there are essential oils that have actually helped me with relaxing my mind, headaches, sore muscles and relieve a minor asthma attack.
Soothing and Clearing My Mind With Aromatherapy
Essentia oils are concentrated and have a potent aroma. Essential oils are extracted from plants through distillation and have an aroma similar to the characterisitics of the plants they come from.
Experts think aromatherapy activates areas in your nose called smell receptors, which send messages through your nervous system to your brain.
The oils may activate certain areas of your brain, like your limbic system, which plays a role in your emotions. They could also have an impact on your hypothalamus, which may respond to the oil by creating feel-good brain chemicals like serotonin.
The essential oils that best soothes and clears my mind are: lavendar, spearmint, mint, eucalyptus and frankinsense. I inhale their aroma by using a diffuser which uses distilled water + essential oil to create cloudy, micro-fine mist like what a humidifier does (but do not use essential oils in humidifiers, because the oils can clog the humidifier over time). It fills my home with an aroma that soothes and clears my mind. Best of all, essential oils do not irritate my lungs like some toxic plug-in air fresheners.
When I have a headache, applying peppermint or rosemary essential oil (dilute with a carrier oil such as coconut oil) to my forehead, temples and the back of my neck at the base of my head to reduce my headache. I also rub it in my palms and cup my hands around my nose and mouth and inhale n order to release tension.
Soothing Muscle Aches
I’m a CAMTC certified massage therapist, and clients and I love essential oil in the massage lotion/cream. Lavender essential oil is the most requested essential oil for massage. It helps soothe muscles while the aroma calms the mind of both the massage therapist and client. In addition, essential oils with menthol (mint, spearmint, eucalyptus) and rosemary essential oil are very soothing to the muscles. Just don’t apply directly to the skin without a carrier. It takes about 30 minutes for the essential oils to be absorbed by the skin and enter the blood stream. Therefore, it’s best not to wash off the lotion/cream for 30 minutes (assuming you are not allergic or irritated by these essential oils).
Minor Asthma Attack
I was having a minor asthma attack one day, and my emergency inhaler was empty. I used eucalyptus essential oil in my diffuser and inhaled the fine mist through my mouth and nose. My airway eventually opened and I was able to breath, again! Thank goodness!
Few Other Uses
There are so many more essential oils to experiment with. Some can be consumed (like lemon essential oil and mint essential oil) and some cannot. I’m not going to recommend anyone to consume essential oils, but I do consume lemon and tangerine essential oils in my water, and I use spearmint in my coffee (also tasty for chocolate shakes). I do this purely for taste. Adding essential oil to hot liquid can lessen the beneficial effects of the oil.
Well, there are so much more to read online about essential oils. I’ll let you Google more. Happy oiling!

December 16, 2020 – I normally shed a lot of hair in the shower. My hair has gotten thinner over the years. (I’m almost 40 years old). I have medium-length, virgin, Asian hair that is normal (not oily and not dry), yet I still shed a lot of hair! Here are some scalp and hair care tips that have helped reduce my hair shedding and produce NEW hair growth.
When I look for hair growth shampoos, I look for ingredients targeted for my scalp. My individual hair strands are thick. I just need more hair on my scalp! I look for a shampoo that cleans build-up and sebum on my scalp and from the hair follicles. It should also contain ingredients to stimulate, moisturize, and improve scalp health as well as vitamins needed to grow thick hair.
I soak my hair with luke warm water (cold water is better, but I get cold) then apply the shampoo, focusing on massaging the shampoo into my roots and scalp for 1 minute with my silicone scalp brush or shampoo brush (scroll down further for photo). If I don’t have my silicone scalp brush, I massage my scalp with the pads of my finger tips while avoiding using my finger nails which have bacteria underneath the bed. I want to make sure my scalp is cleansed and the blood is circulating in my scalp. Aftwards, I rinse with luke warm water (cold water is better).
• Infused with para-probiotics and prebiotics, it helps restore your scalp’s invisible microbiome shield of healthy flora for healthier scalp and hair • With natural ginger and ginseng to help soothe redness and itching and biotin and caffeine to help thicken hair • No sulfates, parabens, or silicones • Use products individually or as part of regimen
After cleansing my scalp and hair, the next thing I do in the shower is apply the Dr. Groot Microbiome Scalp Fortifying Serum Treatment directly to my scalp. The narrow nozzle makes it easy to apply the serum directly to the scalp. The serum has a light scent, is clear and is moisturizing like a hair conditioner but is thinner than a hair conitioner. I massage my scalp with the silicone scalp brush for 1 minute.
• Infused with para-probiotics and prebiotics, it helps restore your scalp’s invisible microbiome shield of healthy flora for healthier scalp and hair • With natural ginger and ginseng to help soothe redness and itching, and biotin and caffeine to help thicken hair • No sulfates, parabens, or silicones • Use products individually or as part of regimen
Then I apply CHI Essentials Moisturizing Conditioner to the rest of my hair (avoiding the scalp and roots). I gently finger-comb the hair conditioner through my strands to distribute the hair conditioner and to remove loose hair. I finger-comb starting from the ends of my hair while working my way up towards my head. I let the hair conditioner stay in my hair for 1 minute.
Finally, I rinse my scalp and hair with luke warm water (cold water is better). When I’m done taking a shower, I squeeze excess water out of my hair before stepping out to towel dry. I towel dry my hair by squeezing the towel around my hair. I don’t rub the towel on my hair, because that can damage my hair while it is in a fragile, wet state. I let my hair air dry.
If you use minoxidil, you can use it with the above treatment. Apply the minoxidil to clean scalp when the hair is dry everyday. Optional: Use a derma roller on your scalp before applying minoxidil for increased absorbtion. Derma roller should only be used once a week, should be sanitized before each use and replaced every 2 months.
Vitamin D stimulates your follicles, and biotin supplements improves the health of your hair and nails. If your physician says it is ok, take your vitamins!
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!
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 awesomemixture:
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 – 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.
