My Avon Product Of The Week Is.....

My Avon Product Of The Week

Funny story...I have literally been binge watching TV and YouTube for the last three days. When I say binge watching, I mean staying up til like 4:30 in the morning watching videos! As you may know, staying up late can wreak havoc on your skin.
I usually have good skin. My only problems are dark circles and laugh lines around my eyes (which I don't mind). During my binge, I noticed how my skin looked dry and blotchy. I had dry patches and weird bumps and everything. Before I went to sleep this morning, (LoL) I decided to try this new skincare cream that Avon is coming out with next month called Anew Ultimate Supreme Performance Cream. It's from the Anew line and it's a standalone cream, meaning it can be used alone or with any other Anew products. 

I washed my face like usual, using the Anew Vitale Gel Cleanser, followed up with the Anew Clinical Extra Strength Retexturizing Peel, then the Anew Power Serum and finally the Anew Ultimate Supreme Performance Cream. I was SO BLOWN AWAY by the results. Mannnn, this cream literally brought my skin BACK TO LIFE within ten (10) minutes!!! I BS you not!!!

My skin was glowing like I had a full night's sleep before I even went to bed!!! My skin was so smooth and radiant. Hubby was even impressed! I am sooo excited about this that I had to tell you guys about it. I've never experienced anything like this before. 

If you look at the jar, you will know not only the ingredients of this cream, but you will know the inspiration behind the making of this product as well. According to Avon, this lightweight cream is powered by a concentrated level of Avon's exclusive complex featuring Tahitian black pearl and other precious minerals. When you use it, you will instantly feel the luxuriousness of it. I only used a couple of dots on my forehead, chin, and cheeks...Trust me, you don't need much. And it smells AMAZING!! 

I definitely will be adding this to my skincare regime. It feels like one of those high-priced creams, but at a more affordable price. If you don't try anything else from the Avon skincare family of products, you MUST TRY THIS!!! It will be available to purchase in Campaign 23, but if you want a sample to try, please comment and let me know and I will be happy to oblige...

When it debuts in Campaign 23, it will be $34.99 and I strongly advise you to snag as many as you can at that price because it's a STEAL!!! Regular price will be $50...

Yelling Cat

I absolutely LOVE this video!!! It perfectly illustrates how adamant, yet cute cats can be. She obviously has to have a relationship with the cat for the cat to be so relentless in its pursuit to "tell her something"...LoL!! Now what exactly he's trying to say, we'll never know...

My Avon Product Of The Week

Avon has so many great products, that it's really hard to pick just one. So I plan to highlight one amazing product every week so that you can know how great our products are BEFORE you buy them! And as always, I promise to be honest in my review, so that you can know what to expect when you buy yours...

So my first Avon product of the week is......

Avon True Color Lip Balm

The results are in....I have a new favorite lip balm. And of course it's from Avon. I know what you're thinking, girl you always finding lip gloss and lip balm somewhere. And you're right. I think there's nothing more attractive than soft kissable lips. And with this summer heat it can be hard to maintain. That's where #AvonTrueColorLipBalm comes in. It goes on soft and smooth and has buildable color. It looks so natural that you can even apply it without a mirror. Me personally, my go to color is Pink Pucker. I'm on the golden brown side as far as complexion, so its not overly dramatic and perfect for everyday wear. 

It comes in four other colors: 

  • Cherry Kiss
  • Plum Passion
  • Coral Rush
  • Peach Pout

It's regularly priced at $4, but if you hurry, you can catch it on sale for $2.99.

Too Many Problems, Not Enough Time....

I know everybody is up in arms about the news of unarmed people of color getting murdered by policeman on a daily basis. Everyone is full of rage, but yet no one is full of solutions. And with good reason, too. That's because the solution is not that simple. You have to realize that everything we are experiencing is systematic. This whole system of racism, sexism, genocide, etc didn't happen overnight. It came from generations of planning and implementation. Unfortunately for us, we don't have generations of time to play catch up to implement solutions to save us from the system.

Even though we don't have the time to play catch up, I think we should still try to save ourselves from this atrocity. We owe that to ourselves and our future generations. Believe it or not, I think the solution to our problem is quite simple. If we, as a people, go back to our roots, I think we all would be better off for it. When I say go back to our roots, I mean that we should use all of our talents and gifts for the benefit of us. I know it sounds selfish, but trust me, it's not. If you think about it, we are being exploited and have been exploited for so long, it's ridiculous. We have literally made every other race of people on this planet more wealthy except US. And it was OUR blood, sweat, and tears that made it happen and yet WE have nothing to show for it.

I know it sounds scary and radical at first, but hear me out. Nothing that we're doing would really change that drastically. We as a people are very resilient and crafty. Think about it, we survived EVERY drug and disease that they've thrown at us. And yet, we're still thriving!! Now, if we apply these same strengths to our own upkeep, imagine how great we could be!!! For instance, we made great strides with the Black bank movement. All we have to do is just use that momentum to keep the progression rolling like using all the money we put into those Black banks to fund our own endeavors. We already have the blueprint for success. Look at Black Wall Street. Sure it was a small town, but we were at the pinnacle of success to the point that they were afraid and HAD TO shut it down. With all the Colored millionaires and billionaires we have in this world now, no one ever tried to duplicate that ever again. Why!?! Sure we know the odds are stacked against us and everything, but at this critical juncture, what exactly do we have to lose?!?

I can go on and on with this topic, but I feel that talking & complaining without solutions is futile. I just wanted to put SOMETHING out there. It might work, it might not. But I'm done with just sitting on my hands waiting for the next colored person to be murdered like a sheep waiting on the slaughter. If we're going to do something, the TIME IS NOW!! Let me know what you guys think....
