My Top 10 Favorite Avon Products: My Best Picks as An Independent Avon Representative
As an Independent Avon Representative, I've been able to try a variety of Avon products. These are my favorite products from across their beauty and skincare lines. I have included their retail price, but these are subject to change with sales and promotions.
10. Anew Clinical Eye Lift Pro Dual Eye System
This is one of the best eye creams I have ever used. It is comprised of a two-part system: an upper eye and brow bone gel to prevent and reduce the signs of wrinkles and an under eye cream that keeps you looking fresh and awake all day. The Anew Clinical Eye Lift Pro Dual Eye System sells for $28.
9. Imari Elixir Eau de Toilette
Imari Elixir is my go-to fragrance for a confident night out. It is flirty, fun, and mysterious all at the same time. It is a very fruity fragrance and the blackberry is the easiest note to detect. You can find this product on Avon's official website for $23, or purchase a travel-size collection of the entire Imari fragrance for $15.
• Top Notes: Sparkling Mandarin, Crisp Green Apple, Juicy Blackberry Essence
• Middle Notes: Opulent Jasmine, Rose Absolute, Ylang Ylang Moheli
• Base Notes: Sensual Red Amber, Hypnotic Vanilla Extract Pure, Patchouli
8. Anew AHA Refining Cream
I tried my first bottle of Anew AHA Refining Cream in my Starter Kit with relatively low expectations. I tend to be hesitant to try any fad skincare products, and since I didn't know much about alpha hydroxy acids - the AHA in the refining cream - I was more than skeptical. But as soon as I put it on, I was surprised by how much softer and smoother my skin felt instantly.
7. Anew Ultimate Cream Cleanser
As I've written about before, my favorite beauty secret is a good cold cream. It is the perfect solution for chronically dry skin without causing problems with people who have oily or combination skin. While I use to be a devoted follower of the cult classic Pond's Cold Cream, my favorite cold cream is now the Anew Ultimate Cream Cleanser. It is more refreshing and hydrating than any other product I've used before, without the menthol smell that I always disliked with Pond's. But to tell you the truth - I still keep the adorable Pond's bottle.
There are other cold creams available for more direct skin concerns, such as the Anew Platinum Cream Cleanser designed for aging skin. If you're interested, you can buy the Anew Ultimate Cream Cleanser for $12.
6. Avon True Color Always On Point Eye Liner
I'm pretty picky about my eyeliner - I need something that's precise, goes on smooth, and doesn't budge. This is the best stick eyeliner I've ever used, and it is especially good for a liner you can sharpen. For a foolproof method, I usually line my eyes with a brown eyeshadow and then go over it with Avon True Color Always On Point Eye Liner in Blackest Black.
The method to sharpen this eyeliner is counterintuitive, though. You simply pop the lid back on the eyeliner and twist it the opposite direction to open it. It will sound like you're breaking it if you're doing it right. But you can sharpen it to your perfect point with no mess and no fuss.
5. Skin So Soft Original Bath Oil
Skin So Soft is one of Avon's most popular lines - and for good reason! It's great to use in the winter to keep dry winter skin at bay. The Skin So Soft has a lot of scents and add a few depending on the season, but the original has always been my favorite. It's great for locking in moisture after a shower, adding to a relaxing bath to keep skin supple and soft, or using as a shave oil. The cost for a 16.9 ounce bottle is $20.
4. Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick
Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick is my pick for a good, everyday lipstick. It's hydrating without being oily or sticky and provides just the right amount of pigment. There are ten shades to pick from, but my favorite is Cherry Blossom. The regular price for a tube is $8.
3. Anew Clinical Extra Strength Retexturizing Peel
I have struggled with acne scars since middle school and have never been able to find a product that helped until I tried Avon's Anew Clinical Extra Strength Retexturizing Peel. A container with 30 pads is $25.
A warning, though: when the label says Extra Strength, it means it. If you have dry-prone or sensitive skin, this might not be the product for you.
2. Skin So Soft Firm & Restore Body Lotion
The second Skin So Soft product on this list, Skin So Soft Firm & Restore Body Lotion is an excellent body lotion.The Firm & Restore line has a much more delicate scent that than the Original and is better for daily use. Since I started using this product, I have noticed a slight increase in skin elasticity but I can't say that it's my main reason for using this product. If you are interested in trying it for yourself, this product sells for $8 for an 11.8 ounce bottle.
1. Advance Techniques Daily Shine Dry Ends Serum
I feel like this product is Avon's best-kept secret. It is fairly inexpensive, selling for only $8 a bottle. Advance Techniques Daily Shine Dry Ends Serum is best used on damp, freshly washed hair, but I've used it on dry hair in the morning to keep fly-aways in place. It is an absolutely phenomenal product and just a pump makes hair look shiny and healthy with a single application.
