As you may have noticed from recent posts, I am in a nostalgic mood at the moment so when a friend asked me if I would mention a new Avon product on my blog, I was immediately transported back to the 1970s and leapt at the chance!
Of course, the 'Avon Calling' ads I remember from my childhood are a far cry from the Avon of today which is an entirely modern cosmetics company boasting Reese Witherspoon, Fergie and Patrick Dempsey among it's celebrity product endorsers. Unbelievably, Avon celebrates its 125th birthday this year - now that is old!
I remember flicking through my mum's Avon brochure and picking out nail polishes and bubble baths. As a little girl I was mesmerised by the pages and pages of pretty coloured make up. And oh, how I longed and longed to be old enough to get some of the terribly exotic looking Arabian Glow when I was grown up. Well, guess what, I did!
Anyone who uses Avon products tends to be immediately converted and there are some fantastic offers in the brochures. The current promotion is for the Anew Skincare Regime - an anti-ageing regime which claims to rejuvenate your skin within 14 days. Quick! The set includes a cleanser, moisturiser and eye cream for...........ten euros.
These products which are usually priced at €42.85 are available for 30+, 40+, 50+ or 60+ age ranges (so take your pick!). The products are featured here and other Avon products have been reviewed on beaut.ie
