What's good from Avon?

Just had a new Avon book delivered, flicking through the pages I found myself mentally clocking up quite a bill so thought I'd ask if there are any "must have's" that i don't know about.

I really like the ideal flawless foundation either the liquid in bottle or the cream to powder compact both are good but the compact doesn't last very long. Also like the super shock max mascara. Glimmer sticks eyeliner I found rubbish. Eyeshadow quads are good too and make up sponges. I tend to get more from the accessories section than actual hair and Beauty! The cheap nail buffer is good too

Glimmersticks brow definers and eye liners.

Bubble bath.

Luxe perfume , and the Fergie Outspoken range. Lots of their perfumes are lovely.


Nail varnish is fab!

I love...
Eyeshadow primer, stops my eyeshadow creasing and makes it last all day
Anew foaming cleanser, much nicer than supermarket face washes
Hair mirror shine spray
Quick dry nail spray

Another vote for nail varnish. The hairbrushes and make up brushes are really good too (their eyeliner brush in particular is great).

They used to do a fantastic brown sugar body scrub but I haven't seen it in a while.

Not really the right time of year, but Avon suncream is great! Also, their hair dye is just as good as the big brands but much cheaper.

YY to suncreams

BB cream is amazing - covers up flaws in my rosacea-damaged skin far better than any other expensive alternatives

Fruity shower gels

Watch out for their "5 items for £5" or similar offers. Great for stocking up ahead for Christmas and birthdays

The Advance Techniques shampoo and conditioner is nice and a good price. I use the coloured hair one. They do a leave-in cream as well (like a serum) but it's not always in the book, so worth stocking up a couple when you see it. Agree that the sun cream is good.

Glimmersticks are fabulous! I must have most colours. They last for ages and wear really well.
I also find the eye shadows to be a good quality and they don't make my eyelids itch.

How could I forget the Anew stuff!! I love the 40+ day/night creams. And the foaming cleanser. Only stuff I use
