With so many beauty companies in the mix today and all of the outlandishly priced products on the market, we sometimes overlook the moderately priced standards that should always have a place in our beauty routine. Today we are taking a look at Avon, a brand that has been synonymous with beauty for generations.
Their great prices, vast range of products and friendly, non-intimidating style have made quality beauty products accessible to everyone. I bet your Mom, Grandmother and even your Great-Grandmother had a number of their products in their arsenal – and you should too! Avon has been a mainstay for years, because they are constantly moving forward with new formulas, fashionable colors and up to the minute beauty break-throughs at a consistently great price. Today, you can order all products online or if you prefer, you can still buy directly from a trained Avon representative for that one on one experience.
We received a number of current Avon products for the we heart this crew to review. We’ll be reading reviews from the wht team from these Avon lines:
liiv botanicals – Avon’s premiere natural beauty line for the body and face. Simply and elegantly packaged, these products are infused with active plant extracts and are preservative, dye and fragrance free.
Advance Techniques– Avon’s new line of salon quality shampoos, conditioners and style aids for bouncy, glossy hair at a price you can afford.
Skin So Soft – a true Avon classic (the scent of the SSS Oil always brings me back to high school summers) that’s branched into body washes, firming moisturizers, self-tanners and more!
My appreciation for Avon goes far back. I lived with my single father during my junior and senior high school years, so I never had a vanity of Mom’s makeup for exploration and experiments. Trips to the drugstore were just that – go in, pick up what you need and leave. No leisurely strolls though the make up aisle dreaming of the possibilities. And to be honest, I was intimidated by the beauty world in general.
My first make up purchase? Avon, of course. I somehow got my hands on one of their small, square catalogs and the seeds of a lifetime of loving makeup and beauty products were planted. I read and reread that booklet, until my dad finally took pity on me and said I could pick two products and place an order with our neighbor (a local Avon lady). I purchased two eye shadow compacts (a bright teal that would be right in style today and an orangey yellow that did my complexion no favors) and wore them to every single school dance in 8th grade. While I had a lot to learn about choosing colors, application and blending, I’ll always love Avon for introducing me to the world of beauty. Anyone else discover makeup and more from the Avon brochure?
