What is Your Skin Type?- Find Out with This Simple Test!

You might be wondering what tissues have to do with determining your skin type, and trust me I'm going to tell you, but first here's a list of what you'll need for this simple test to determine your skin type.

1. A cleanser (my favorite is the Anew Vitale).

2. A clean towel to pat your face dry.


3. A tissue (plain, no lotion), torn into 4 pieces.

Wash your face thoroughly with your favorite cleanser. Pat dry and wait 15 minutes. After the 15 minutes has passed, place 1 torn piece of tissue on your forehead, 1 on your chin, 1 on the side of your nose, and 1 on your cheek.

What happened to the tissue?

Did all of the tissue stick for a few seconds and then fall off? Your skin type is:

Did all of the tissue stay on? Your skin type is:

Did some of the tissue stay on (nose and/or chin)? Your skin type is:

Did the tissue fall immediately to the floor? Your skin type is:

Anew Vitale CollectionAnew Reversalist Collection
Anew Ultimate CollectionAnew Platinum Collection

The good news is, whatever your skin type, AVON has the products you need. For the right solution to your skin's unique needs you can contact me directly (using the contact form on the right) or use the AVON Skin Care Finder available on my website.

Confession Time!

I am horrible at keeping up with a skin care routine. It's not that they are too difficult, but on any given day there are about a million other things going on, and I'll be in bed for the night when I realize that I forgot to take care of my face.

 I always tell myself, "I'll get back on track tomorrow", but before too long, a small collection of not even half-used cleansers, moisturizers, serums and the like have taken up residency in my medicine cabinet. 

AVON's campaign 11 has started online today, and one of the cover products is the Anew Vitamin C Brightening Serum. I was able to get my hands on a bottle a couple of weeks ago and I love it.
 I've been using it pretty consistently (only at night, even though the suggested use says morning and night) and I am so impressed with the results I've had, that I am actually going to share with you the before and after pictures. 

The Before Picture (Left) Was Taken on 4/16 (I think no flash)
The After Picture (Right) Was Taken on 4/26 (with flash, no flash options were too blurry)

Pretty great results, right? I haven't even been using it for the full 2 weeks yet and have just started using the 4 step process (cleanser, serum, moisturizer, and eye treatment) on the 24th.  Check out the Campaign 11 AVON brochure for the Vitamin C Brightening Serum (just $19.99, will be $30) and other great beauty and household products.

Top 3 Benefits of Shopping Early for Special Occasions

So, I typically don't enjoy when retailers set up early for special sales. Can we get through one holiday before moving onto the next please? But, recently, I have realized there are a few benefits to us as customers, if we take the time to appreciate them. 

Here are my top 3:

1. Catching Great Sales: Many business owners, myself included, start sales for special occasions early. You can almost always find better deals when you plan to shop early instead of waiting until the last minute.

Here's an Example of a Great Sale Available through my Avon e-store

2. More Time to Find the "Perfect Gift": When you start shopping early, you have time to peruse a wide selection of gifts that would suit your gift giving needs. 

Mother's Day is Coming Sunday May 8th

3. No Stressing at the Last Minute and Shopping the "Whatever's Left" Aisle: Nothing is worse than shopping in a store full of people, all shopping for the same purpose, and then picking up whatever you can find that seems remotely gift-able. It is the thought that counts, so if you care about the person you are shopping for, put more thought into the gift (and your sanity). 

So, early holiday setups in the store aren't all that bad. Save yourself some stress this year and get your shopping started (and finished!) early.

One Month Until Mother's Day!

Me and My Girls!

Nothing in my life quite prepared me for being a mother! Even after having the title for the last 8 years, I'm still in awe of just how much I don't really know.

What I do know is that motherhood has been the single greatest gift of my life. Of course, other gifts are appreciated too, especially when they are helping express how appreciated you are!

 Avon has some great gifts for mothers in the campaign 9 brochure, which is available online until Wednesday, April 13, 2016.

Here are a few of my favorite finds that would make their way on my Mother's Day List, if there was such a thing!

1. Little Black Dress Collection- Just $25 for all 3 pieces. The set includes :
-1.7 fl.oz. Eau de Parfum Spray
- 6.7 fl.oz. Shower Gel
-6.7 fl.oz. Body Lotion

2. Avon Senses Silky Vanilla Collection- Just $19.99 for all 5 pieces. The set includes:
-24 fl.oz. Bubble Delight Vanilla Cream Bubble Bath
-8.4 fl.oz. Avon SensesVanilla Body Spray
-8.4 fl.oz. Avon Senses Vanilla Body Lotion
- An Avon Shower Pouf
- 11 oz. White Sandalwood Candle that gives up to 30 hours of burn time!

3. The mark. Carry All Handbag-  This bag may seem a little pricey at $44, but your Mom might possibly LOVE it almost as much as she loves you! 

4. Precious Charms Bracelets- I received the Angel Wing bracelet at our Avon Spring Rally and loved it so much, I bought another one along with the Shell and Cross bracelets and gave them to my sister as a just because gift. The bracelets are currently $14.99 a piece and would look good worn alone or stacked. 

5. The Blooming Collection Gardening Bag with Tools is just $29.99 and would make a great gift for the Mom who loves spending time in her garden.  We bought the girls the kid's version as a part of their Easter basket and they love them! 

These are just a few of my favorite finds from the campaign 9 brochures. Make your Mom smile this Mother's Day and buy her something besides the flowers! You can order online and have Mom's gift shipped directly to her. If you are local, you can call me before 6pm on Saturday to place your order, and I will gift wrap your gifts!

Stepping Out of My Comfort Zone

Image Found on Fake It Til You Make It 

The image I share above seemed perfectly fitting for this post, my first post on my brand new blog!
You see, over the last few months, I have been challenging myself to do things that are outside of my comfort zone.

I have been an Independent Avon Representative for the last 8 years. I started shortly after my oldest turned 1 because I wanted to continue to stay home with her. I knew and trusted the AVON name and it was inexpensive enough to start out. Fast forward to today and  I am still working my business, but now I have 2 daughters, 1 in school and the other ready to start school (Pre-K) next year!

Over the last 8 years, business has ebbed and flowed. There were times I worked at it really hard and times where it was barely a hobby. I'm not yet near where I want to be with my business, but every step I take is bringing me there!

Today, I took two pretty big steps outside of my comfort zone, in an effort to grow my business to where I want it to be.
1. I started this blog and actually bought the domain name!
2. I changed my e-store address (which has been the same since I started) to match my blog name, my e-mail address, and my Facebook page.

I hope you'll stop by periodically to check in and get to know me and maybe leave a few comments so I can get to know you too!
