To address your concern of lines and wrinkles, TREAT skin with Clinical Advanced Wrinkle Corrector to plump lines and wrinkles within 10 minutes.

To address your concern of loss of eye contour due to undereye bags, TREAT eyes with Ultimate Contouring Eye System to dramatically reduce wrinkles, firm, tighten and restore definition to the eye area.

Before applying your treatment products and moisturizers, CLEANSE skin with Daily Resurfacing Cleanser to reveal cleaner, smoother, younger-looking skin.
image holder
To enhance your skincare regimen, FINISH with an application of Anew Age-Transforming Foundation to further diminish fine lines, wrinkles, pores and age spots. To match your light skin tone, choose from Nude, Ivory or Bisque.
Yours will be different because you have different skin and concerns, but that's the beauty of it. Now I'll be adding a new product or two every couple of months as my old ones wear out. So far I've really enjoyed the ones I've tried. They have very light or no fragrance and that's important to me. I also use many of the products from the spa line and love them!

Want to try some? eMail us and let us know the type of samples you're intrested in and your mailing address. We ship Avon worldwide (where allowed by law).

Thanks to 1StopMom I'm a Winner!

I won 500 entre cards in 1StopMom's virtual birthday contest! Yah! Thanks so much!

Why buy your foundation garments from Avon?

Shopping for a bra is no fun, especially when you wear a large size like I do. Most stores don't carry my size and if they do, they look like they were made for someone in the 1950's - I prefer a girly look but want support as well.

Matt FlanneryCo-Founder & CEO

We're happy to spread the word for - we've been supporting them for over a year. Here's our portfolio of entrepenures:

Don't know what is? Here's the info from their site:

What Is Kiva?

We Let You Loan to the Working Poor

Kiva's mission is to connect people through lending for the sake of alleviating poverty.
Kiva is the world's first person-to-person micro-lending website, empowering individuals to lend directly to unique entrepreneurs in the developing world.
The people you see on Kiva's site are real individuals in need of funding - not marketing material. When you browse entrepreneurs' profiles on the site, choose someone to lend to, and then make a loan, you are helping a real person make great strides towards economic independence and improve life for themselves, their family, and their community. Throughout the course of the loan (usually 6-12 months), you can receive email journal updates and track repayments. Then, when you get your loan money back, you can relend to someone else in need.

Kiva partners with existing expert microfinance institutions. In doing so, we gain access to outstanding entrepreneurs from impoverished communities world-wide. Our partners are experts in choosing qualified entrepreneurs. That said, they are usually short on funds. Through Kiva, our partners upload their entrepreneur profiles directly to the site so you can lend to them. When you do, not only do you get a unique experience connecting to a specific entrepreneur on the other side of the planet, but our microfinance partners can do more of what they do, more efficiently.

Kiva provides a data-rich, transparent lending platform. We are constantly working to make the system more transparent to show how money flows throughout the entire cycle, and what effect it has on the people and institutions lending it, borrowing it, and managing it along the way. To do this, we are using the power of the internet to facilitate one-to-one connections that were previously prohibitively expensive. Child sponsorship has always been a high overhead business.

Kiva creates a similar interpersonal connection at much lower costs due to the instant, inexpensive nature of internet delivery. The individuals featured on our website are real people who need a loan and are waiting for socially-minded individuals like you to lend them money.

We've enjoyed our time with and highly recommend it - especially their gift certificats for children. It's a great way to teach them about compassion.
