Avon Products Review

 Alright, as promised, here are my four favorite Avon products, that I use on a daily/weekly basis.

1) Solutions Plus Total Radiance Eye Gel- 0.5 oz jar
This product is intended to reduce bags and dark coloration around the eye area. It instructs to apply gently under the eye in the morning and evening. I have used this personally for 2 weeks now, and it's amazing. A small amount goes quite a long way with this product. It goes on smooth, and absorbs quickly. (As long as you don't apply too much product.

This is the container it is in. It may be only half an ounce, but it lasts forever!

This is the color and texture. It's smooth, and gel like, but you only need a small amount!

After using this product for 2 weeks, it has reduced the dark circles under my eyes. Considering there are nights I only get 3-4 hours of sleep, that is a small feat in itself. I though that they would NEVER fade. I really am impressed with the results in such a short period of time. I wish I had taken before and after pictures like I would normally, but I didn't. Shame on me.

Functionality: Works well, and works as it is intended too 5/5
Consistency: Is smooth and appears the same as advertised 5/5
Ease of use: Is easy to apply, but there is a lack of how much to use 4/5
Packaging: Packaged well, and if closed as it should be, avoids any contamination 5/5
Total: 19/20

Ingredients: Water, Witch Hazel Extract, Glycerin, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Propylene Glycol, Dipeptide-2, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3, Hesperidin Methyl Chalcone, Bupleurum Falcatum Extract, Euphrasia Officinalis Extract, Marshmallow Extract, Lupin Extract, Wheat Germ Extract, Sweet Almong Extract, Linseed Extract, Chamomile Extract, Cornflower Extract, Bitter Orange Extract, Ginseng Extract, Elderberry Extract, Sunflower Oil, Sodium Hyluronate, Allantoin, Panthenol, Squalane, Caffeine, Retinol Palitate, Beta-Carotene, Vitamin E, Lecithin, Glyceryl Polymethacrylate, Butylene Glycol, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Disodium EDTA, Tetrasodium EDTA, Benzyl Alcohol, Methyl Paraben, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, FD&C Red 40, FD&C Yellow 5

2) Avon Solutions True Pore-Fection 3.4 oz tube
This mask is intended to "lift away pore clogging dirt and oil. Help control shine over time. Visably reduce the appearance of enlarged pores" I will say that the application is simple, but the small sized bottle means that you only have maybe 10 applications if you have a large face. Once on, you are instructed to leave it for 10-15 minutes for it to fully dry. For that to work you also need to realize you need to have a very thin layer of this on, or it will take upwards of an hour to dry. You don't need to cake this on, you just need to make sure it covers your face with a thin layer.

 This is a thing layer freshly applied to my hand.

This is after 10-15 minutes of drying.

This mask has an evident change is appearance once it is dry. Your face does feel as though it's getting tightened up somehow has it dries, and that is normal with this product. Removing this is just taking a face cloth soaked in warm water and  washing it away. It's stubborn sometimes and you have to scrub, which is a little bit of a pain, but it works well, so a little issue like that doesn't bother me. I have noticed it cleans well, haven't noticed my pore getting smaller though. I have huge pores on my nose, and it bugs me, so I tried this to reduce them. Although I haven't noticed a large difference with that, it is a great face mask.

Functionality: Works well as a cleansing face mask, but I have not seen any pore reduction as of yet 4/5
Consistency: Appears the same as advertised and from container to container it appears to be the same 5/5
Ease of use: Is easy to apply, but a pain to get off sometimes and too east to use too much 3/5
Packaging: Packaged well, and if closed as it should be, avoids any contamination 5/5
Total: 17/20

3) Nail Experts Grow Potion 
This small vial of product is one of my favorites. It is a serum you put on your cuticles and rub into the nail and skin around it. Your nails grow stronger than usual, and look nicer as well. it just take a small amount to cover the needed area, and you use it once a day. you place a small amount on ,rub it in and voila! You have wonderful beautiful nails again. It does leave a little bit of a residue on your fingers, but tends to absorb quickly for me. Don't wash that off because then it may not work!

The grow potion and applicator.

The applicator come out with enough on it to do one hand. It doesn't take much at all, and it really really effective. I love this product and I can say it has really improved my nails since I started using it.

Functionality: Works as intended 5/5
Consistency: Is as advertised and consistently works time and time again. 5/5
Ease of use: Is easy to apply, but does leave a residue that makes you want to wash it off. Waiting 10 minutes though and it will disappear. 4/5

4) Silicone Glove
This lotion is AMAZING. Enough said really. It help keep your hands from getting dried out after constant washing and drying. (like is you are a nurse, or work in the food industry) It remains there even after washing your hands once! No starange smell, a little bit of residue left over like any lotion since you need to let it sink in..
This is a photo of silicone glove. I did not take a picture of the package 
since mine is a travel size and has a seasonal pic on it.

I love this product. Love it, and use it, all the time.

The reason why all the Avon? Thanks to my last post, I had enough interest in people buying that my mom/dad reopened their online Avon store for you guys to shop at! The link is here:

--------> Mark/Judy Rustad's Avon Shop <-------

Please feel free to make orders whenever. All proceeds collected from that store are going towards my mom's medical bills and her new wheelchair accessible car so she can get out of the house more <3
