So, the holidays have kept me really busy, and I know I owe several reviews of lovely products which will be forthcoming. In the meantime, I had to share with you the awesome product SCORE I ordered this week courtesy of my new and lovely Avon Rep, Gloria Sutton!
You see I have had a BIG problem with Avon in the past. The problem was two fold, first it was addiction to their products and the biggest one was KEEPING a rep! Yep it is true, I had a lovely Avon rep years ago (you know who you are!) and lost her when she went on to other things in her life (really good things though). A girl can’t hold that against her rep can she? No! But in some small corner of my mind, I kept resisting Avon products and their siren call when I would see catalogs laying around various doctors offices and coffee shops. Thinking, I couldn’t lose another happy symbiotic relationship between me and my dealer errr I mean Avon rep.
That was until recently. I have been very blessed to have moved clear across the country to the arms of my new family (well newly met anyways). I received a very disturbing call the other day from Gloria (who shares the same birthday as me so you KNOW she’s got to be fab right?) mentioning my drug of choice…. I almost dropped the phone when she told me she was going to be emailing me her WEB addy on the Avon site so I could order my beloved products once again. Uh, not only that, but there was FREE SHIPPING involved in the deal.
Now, I suppose you are wondering what I ordered? What I am waiting for this very moment to hit my doorway….
Okay here’s the stash and believe me, reviews will be forthcoming!
Naturals Lip Balms in Vanilla and Peach for only .69 cents each!
Flavor Savers Lip Gloss in Cherry again only .69 cents!
Clearskin® Cleansing Pads I have been really wanting to try these and get some for my teenage son and who could pass it up for only $2.99 a jar.
PLANET SPA Mediterranean Olive Oil Conditioning Hair Mask $4.50
NATURALS Plum and Nectarine Moisturizing Milk $3.00
NATURALS Mandarin Jasmine Body Lotion $2.99
NATURALS Banana Coconut Milk Body Lotion $3.50
ULTRA COLOR RICH K Gold Lipstick one each of Golden Raisin and Golden Wine only $4.99 per tube!
NATURALS Tropical Tote only $2.99 this is SO cute!
Earth scented Body Butter by Mark – $12.00 it was the most expensive thing I purchased. I thought about the perfume, but wanted to check the scent first. I have been eyeballing it for awhile now, so what time than the present to try it.
I tossed in a few other goodies too, but I am NOT telling what they are in case prying eyes are reading and lest the holiday surprise be ruined.
MAN I miss my Avon. I am seriously loving the fact that I don’t have to wait for anything, there are no more forms to fill out, heck I don’t even have to see Glo, to get my goods. Not that I don’t love seeing her mind you, but when a girl needs a fix, she needs it NOW! They are coming right to my door for FREE with no hassle and before Christmas hits.
Admittedly I was a bit hesitant to use the Avon website at first because when I last tried it years ago it was a nightmare. Now it runs smooth as glass. Just register shop and check out. DUDE they even take Paypal now! Avon welcome to the 21st century and apparently to my Paypal account. LOL
Some of you may be wondering about the catalogs and samples, you can still get those if you like, old ways die hard in the world of beauty and Avon. You can go right here: http://gloriasutton.avonrepresentative.com/ and get register with Gloria, AND there is a code for FREE Shipping on any sized order. Yep, any sized! All you have to do is register with her and you are set! The main Avon says it is for orders of $30.00, but Gloria has an in, and she will hook you up!
Now, I have gone on and ON about my pending order, I would love to hear about your favorite Avon products, both current and from years gone by. I have so many wonderful memories about Avon products I want to share, but don’t have much time left for today. But my favorite product as a child were the solid perfume pendants. I thought those were the coolest thing since sliced bread. They impressed me so much that I can honestly say that Avon inspired me to make my own perfumes as an adult and start a business from it.
OH oh oh! I remember the other thing I loved! Those little mini lipstick tubes. OMG The samples? I loved them! Okay I am rambling. Hit me with your favorites, and be sure to tell Gloria I sent you to get some goodies. There is literally something there for everybody! Not just cosmetics and bath goodies! I was floored buy the selection and excellent pricing as well!
