Cher said it best. She capitalized on the idea that we all hold true, whether we are willing to admit to it or not. Especially, as women, the signs of time weigh heavily on us. If there were something we could get our hot little hands on to turn back time and reverse those tell-tale signs of aging, we would not hesitate. I have recently started using some products from the Avon Anew line. Yes, Avon! I am sure you have heard of them, they have been around for years. Ah, Avon, just the name drums up nostalgic images of elegantly dressed ladies with matching pillbox hats and dainty hand bags, going door to door to deliver bags of personalized goodies to friends and family. Moving along from my 1950s image of the June Clever interpretation of the classic “Avon Lady,” today the company is still going strong, and many a successful businesswoman has made a full time career from selling Avon.
I embarked on the journey to try some of the products for myself recently, and I have to say, I am quite pleasantly surprised by the results I have seen, thus far. About six months ago, I moved to sunny Southwest Florida. In addition, for my last birthday, I celebrated my fiftieth year. Given the fact that I have been a life-long sun worshiper and have spend many an hour from my teens forward basking in her glorious rays. Natural aging can have visible affects on the skin on its own, but in light of my years of tanning and spending every moment possible outdoors, in addition to recently moving to a place where, in essence, it is summer year round, I knew I needed a strong skin care regimen to combat the damage done and prevent any further damage.
Enter, Anew. Actually a very fitting name for the product. I have found it to be, for myself, a fresh start. A new youthful radiance, you hear everyone talk about it. Amazingly, I am seeing what that term means on a personal level. While there are many products in the Anew line, I am going to go over the main products that I have been using and the results I have found, personally, from those products. So, let’s talk about skin care-
The Anew Clinical Advanced Wrinkle Corrector is the first to review, because it has been the product to provide the biggest visible impact in the shortest time. I first began using this product on that ever so precious decollete area, the area from the neck down to the cleavage, that shows when you wear tank tops or sundresses. After years of sun exposure, I had visible signs of wear and tear there, while they were not deep, I had wrinkled lines that resembled a finely laced honeycomb pattern. Initially, I began using the wrinkle cream to prevent any further damage, being that in southwest Florida, pretty much tank tops and sundresses are the staple attire. However, within a few days, I noticed that my skin where I was using the cream became very soft and supple. After a couple of weeks of using this product every night, my husband even made mention of how my skin was changing. He had actually noticed that the wrinkles had diminished drastically, and my skin felt incredibly soft. Most days, I catch myself rubbing my hand around my upper chest area, still in awe of how soft and smooth the skin is. This will definitely be a staple in my skin care routine for years to come.
I started using the Anew Ultimate Multi-Purpose day and night cream when I received a travel size combo in my starter kit as a new Avon Representative. I was immediately happy with the results of the cream as well. The day cream boasts an impressive 25 SPF sunscreen, an invaluable product in the sunshine state. The night cream has a very soothing and delicate fragrance. I say that because at night, my husband always makes mention of how nice I smell, and I am always telling him that I had just completed my night time routine and it is the night cream he smells. Aside from the husband approval, I am in love with this product as well. Luckily, I do not have definitive wrinkles on my face as of yet, and this was mainly a preventative measure. But, much like the wrinkle cream, my skin has become so soft, I often catch myself rubbing my cheeks just to make sure it is real.
After trying out the initial products that I had on hand, I had placed an order to try some of the other Anew line. I had purchased the Anew Ultimate Cream Cleanser shortly after moving to Florida. I am often apprehensive to try new face washes, as my face tends to break out or get oily with many products. I was happy to see that I had no side effects of this product. It left no heavy or greasy residue, and, as I have found with the Anew products used, left my skin feeling fresh, clean, and soft.
In my purchase, I also grabbed the Anew Clinical Dual Eye Lift Pro and I am so glad I did. I suffer from insomnia, I have for a few years. Most days I wake up looking like the bride of Frankenstein or an extra from The Walking Dead. My eyes are always so puffy and have that alluring raccoon look about them, with all the dark circles, and all. This eye serum is a two-part product with a cream that goes under the eye and a light gel that goes over the lid. Can I just say WOW? There was an instantaneous difference in my eyes the first time I tried it. After about a week of use, I had a noticeable lift to my eyes and, the dark circles? I mere memory. In an attempt to not wake up looking like something that has been dug up and warmed over, I use this serum as regimented as brushing my teeth nightly.
The Final step in my current skin care regimen is the Anew Age Transforming Foundation. This stuff is as miraculous, in my opinion, as the preceding products discussed. This foundation is infused with Anew serum to help aid in fighting against aging effects of skin. Literally, my skin looks years younger! Since this foundation is geared more toward, mature skin, it does not leave a heavy or greasy finish, and goes on seamlessly without caking or settling into lines or wrinkles. Within two weeks of use, I could see a noticeable difference in the texture and appearance of my skin. Another definite must-have staple in my skin care arsenal.
