Any Avon recommendations?

My friend has just started selling Avon.
I've never bought anything from there before but as she has had a bad year, I would like to support her as much as I can.

Anyone know of any Avon products that are worth a try?

I like their scents and body creams/lotions.

The cream to powder face compact & loose powder (black packaging)

Bubble bath - it's usually on offer in big bottles.

Last time I heard, they have to sell £83 on each order before any commission- you’ll have to buy a lot of stuff to help her in any way financiallysad

The Mark eyebrow gel with double ended angled brush is fab.

Glycerine hand cream is the best hand cream I've found. Worth looking at clothing too- I once got a great handbag from them.

The glimmer sticks are great. They also had a brilliant foot mask thing that makes your dead skin fall off, and an exfoliating mask.

But they sell in China now, so have to test on animals, if that bothers you

Big bottles of bubble bath, shower gels, perfumes and aftershaves, foundation etc. Love all of them

The hair serum is the best one I've used.

I second the glycerine hand cream too.

Tested on animals. Yuck.

The setting spray is hands down the best I've ever tried. Replaced my Urban decay one!

Great thanks for your suggestions.
I won't be the only one buying from her but wanted to show support.

Plus, I have run out of a lot of things so it might be good to stock up.

Even if it down at take off and she ends up giving it up, I think it's nice to be enthusiastic!

They never used to test on animals. I used to love avon.
I loved their Argan oil hair stuff, glimmersticks, and their bb cream was fantastic.

Pur blanca is one of my favourite perfumes

Talisin Wed 15-Nov-17 02:40:45

Anew Reversalist Infinite Effects Night Treatment cream aka the one all the beauty editors have been raving about. I was slightly astonished, I really didn’t expect much given I’ve been using retin a for years and this is weaker but bloody hell it works. On week three now so back to phase one and will be reordering next week (it’s supposed to last around four weeks).

Another fan of the Renew range. Was using another overpriced brand but decided to give this range a go at a fraction of the cost with amazing results! Also like to use their B&B cream and glimmersticks too. Always some good offers in there too smile.

They do a great nail varnish setting spray

SashaFiercesMum Wed 15-Nov-17 08:18:43

Just ordered sooper. I'm expecting great things!smile

I can't find the make up or nail varnish setting sprays in this month's brochure (18)


TowerRose Wed 15-Nov-17 12:20:01

I really like their eyeshadow quads

I've always found their jewellery good value

usernameinfinito Thu 16-Nov-17 21:52:38

When is Pur Blanca going to be in a cheap 10-12 pounds set?

1Vandal Thu 16-Nov-17 21:57:03

The eyeliners are great, and the extra lasting range is great too. The shower gels and moisturisers smell amazing. The lipsticks are lovely too.
Yeah I buy all my makeup from Avon and it's way cheaper than any big name stuff. Love the anew range smells great too
