Avon Anew Rejuvenate Flash Facial Review

The Muse is always fascinated by tales of large pores! I honestly am. I have absolutely no problem in regards to large pores on my face and can’t begin to understand the problems and woes that come with large pores. Heck I already have plenty of problems without added drama of large pores.

Whenever I hear some of you discussing large pore problems I become instantly intrigued as I’m just curious how exactly one should go about covering large pores, treating them, etc…..It’s quite a mystery to me.

I recently ran across Avon Anew Rejuvenate Flash Facial and couldn’t help but think of the many conversations I’ve had on here with readers complaining about large pores….it seemed maybe, just maybe Avon Anew Rejuvenate Flash Facial might be the solution some of you craved?

Avon Anew Rejuvenate Flash Facial doesn’t come cheap at $48 USD (have no fear Avon always has awesome sales so I imagine sooner or later you’ll score a deal or two!) and I must say I was shocked as I didn’t know Avon carried products that were ranging above $20 bucks…whoa. Count me shocked and surprised. I’m somehow of the mentality that if it costs more that must surely mean it works. Dontcha sometimes get that vibe? Even I pay $118 for mascara it surely will work WAY better than the $8 one! Either I’m nuts or everyone has totally experienced that feeling before. Of course, when I heard Avon Anew Rejuvenate Flash Facial was $48 USD I was all about how it must be a miracle in a bottle!

What is it?

Avon Anew Rejuvenate Flash Facial is designed to visibly shrink pores while resurfacing skin to clarify and reveal fresher, renewed skin. Revitafresh Technology helps skin look more even and smoother. I have no idea what Revitafresh Technology is but it sounds important and it sounds like people with large pores need some of that stuff! The treatment does also offer relief for fine lines so if you’re running into the effects of aging this will be helpful as well.

As I mentioned I don’t have large pores but it sounds like this was something I could make use of simply because I suffer from dull skin. My skin somehow fails to have any glow left in it lately. This happens a few times a year in particular Winter and Summer when the heat and the cold take a toll on my skin and it loses moisture.

I’ve used this for over two weeks now and I must say my skin does look refreshed and healthy. Count the Muse impressed. I used this in conjunction with my current moisturizing so this took the place of my serum temporarily. It’s a very light, gel like formula that absorbs instantly into skin and feels slightly cooling on. They do promise instant results that are visible but I honestly seen no results until 11 days into use. Within 11 days I noticed that my skin was even and less dull and I also felt like it looked healthier if that makes sense. After I stopped using the product my skin ended up going back to being dull again so I’ve taken up using it again in place of my normal serum. From all the rave reviews on the site it appears to be a miracle cure for those with rosacea as well.

Who may want to try it?

  • Anyone with redness or ruddy cheeks and face
  • Those who want to diminish the appearance of large pores
  • Anyone who wants to resurface their skin and wake up dull, uneven skin

I think it’s worth checking out as I did see pretty nice results!

Jillian Dempsey for Avon Essential Beauty Palette Review

I know I’m such a cheese with all my Avon reviews lately but I can’t help but stop and say that Avon has vastly improved lately and I’ve embraced all the great new items they are offering item.

Recently when I seen the Jillian Dempsey for Avon Essential Beauty Palette I was kinda hopping around as I really liked what Jillian has pulled off for Avon lately. Away I went with indulging in one of the two palettes on offer, after all it promises me a full face of makeup in a cute little palette…who could resist?

Zomg! Bad idea Avon. No likey this palette at all!

I’m somewhat shocked in all honesty that this was such an epic fail. The Jillian Dempsey for Avon Essential Beauty Palette comes in a cool and warm version and run around $4.99-$7.99 per palette. The palette is a cute little cardboard flip design with a full size mirror and all the makeup you need for a complete look such as lipcreams, blush, shadows, and an applicator! Sweet.

Jillian+Dempsey+for+Avon+Essential+Beauty+Palette+3

Not so sweet.

The entire lot of makeup included in the palette is utterly, completely, and devastatingly bad. I’m not sure what went wrong as Jillian Dempsey is a rock star with her Avon creations but this was terribly wrong. The shadows included are both cream and apply sheer and streaky! The lip colors aren’t as bad but they aren’t easy to blend and just sit on your lips and finally the blush gives a tiny hint of color but isn’t nearly pigmented enough to create a wow inspiring look.

I’m pretty sad about this one! I think they honestly put effort into making it but didn’t anyone test it before they slapped it up for sell?

Avon Glazewear Diamonds Eye Color Review

Don’t quote the Muse but she recently tried Avon Glazewear Diamonds Eye Color and she had thought this was a new product for the Avon Holiday Collection (yeah, yeah I’m still in Holiday mode here, sue me!) but I think maybe that the color I tried might have been new for the collection and not the actual product. Ok anyway…little bit more info that you’d be interested to know there but I just wanted to clear that up before getting onto the review stage of this process.

Honestly, put diamonds and any cosmetic name after or before it and the Muse gets hyper…diamond lipstick, diamond gloss, diamond powder….I mean seriously doesn’t diamond just make everything look extra special? Dontcha just want it after you hear diamond attached to it?

So when I heard Avon Glazewear Diamonds Eye Color I was all about it. Diamond? That had to mean it would shimmer and sparkle and shine! Oh yes I need diamonds to make all my holiday looks complete plus it’s cheap at $7 USD!

Picture+0275+%281%29

Umm I found out I really didn’t need diamonds after all sadly….

I tried out Avon Glazwear Diamonds Eye Color in Pure Silver and I must say the excitement and prospects of a silvery liquid color had my mind turning to mush and my heart throbbing in excitement. I think what really had me going was the chance that maybe Avon Glazewear Diamonds Eye Color could be the next Visee Aqua Shining Eyes. I’m a self confessed hater of liquid and cream shadows but I do so admit that as of late I’ve given some a chance and really loved ones I’ve tried. I had pretty high hopes for this product as lately Avon hasn’t failed at really delighting me with some of it’s newest releases.

Sadly, all my hopes and dreams of an awesome liquid shadow were quickly dashed upon application. Avon Glazewear Diamonds Eye Color may have the potential for greatness but somewhere along the line the formula fails miserably. I had to strain myself to build up color for decent coverage and even after several layers the shadow still looked sheer. The formula dries down considerably slower than normal liquid shadows which makes blending a real treat but that doesn’t excuse the lack of pigmentation nor does it make up for the fact that the final, finished dry down is a complete nightmare of a mess. Blending was a bit of a problem simply because the product streaks around the eye big time. The dry down is slow which makes blending easy however the streaking causes a problem of having to apply layer after endless layer to get a very sheer finish. Ugh! Frustrating! The finished results are more of problem as the product dries down to a flaky, cracking, creasing hot mess. Finished results looked like I had nothing on at all but upon closer inspection you can make out smears of shadow all over my eye that looks like I slapped it on without properly blending it when in fact I just spent the last 15 minutes applying one hundred layers of this stuff and blending until my little finger hurt.

Here I am wearing about five hundred layers of Avon Glazewear…mmmm..very sheer as you can see!

Picture+082 400x300

Anyway.

The moral of this story is the Muse can’t help but be let down by Avon Glazewear Diamonds Eye Color. I was kinda sorta hoping for something special especially considering I’ve had such wonderful luck lately with Avon! Sadly, I really didn’t like this and I was somewhat shocked at all the raving, glowing reviews on the Avon site for the product because I honestly thought it wasn’t great at all.

This one the Muse isn’t feeling this one sadly but she still hearts other Avon goodies!
