From time to time, I’m going to review products, AVON and probably Not AVON products as well. I will endeavor to be completely honest, but I’m not personally interested in negative reviews, so if I don’t like a product I will most likely just not write about it. I wouldn’t enjoy writing a blog post about how much I hate something. I will try to add as many details of the products as I can. For instance, if something has a strong scent, a vivid color, a thick texture or anything one might notice when testing new products. These are just characteristics that some may like, and others hate. If I have some reason you shouldn’t consider me totally impartial, I will mention that. Also, if I do not review something, there is no reason to assume I hate it, because that would be a ridiculously large number of products worldwide that I probably have never used.
All that said, I’d like to talk about the AVON Anew Cleansers I’ve been using. As I have mentioned before in this blog, I spent much of the summer unwell. My already sensitive skin went a little crazy on me due to illness and medications and became even more reactive and sensitive. You wouldn’t think this would be a great time to try new products, and you’d probably be right. Still, that’s what I did anyway.
There was a sale on, so I bought two Anew Cleansers. I got the Anew Clean Illuminating Rich Cleansing Foam, and the Anew Clean Comforting Cream Cleanser & Mask. I immediately started using the Illuminating one. The first thing I realized was that AVON is not kidding when it says you only need a pea-sized amount. It foams up a lot and I ended up with soap all over the place due to using way too much. Also, when my skin is at it’s most sensitive, this cleanser was a bit drying, but did not actively irritate my skin. I like that AVON’s new cleanser line is so gentle.
After that, I switched to the Comforting cleanser. This does not foam or bubble at all, and is more a thin cream in texture. I found this one actively soothing for my skin. It was not drying at all, and my skin felt very soft afterwards. I have not used it in its other capacity as a light moisturizing mask, because I also picked up an AVON Clinical Overnight Hydration Mask, which I’ll review another time. I do think that the Comforting cleanser would work nicely as a moisturizing mask, especially if you don’t have a lot of time to pamper yourself. You only leave it on for a few minutes when using it as a mask.
Now that I am off my antibiotics and firmly on the mend from my summer, I’ve been switching back and forth between the two cleansers. I use the Comforting one when my skin is feeling more dry or sensitive, and use the Illuminating one on other days. They both work great, and leave my skin clean and fresh looking. AVON also sells one for oily skin, which is not appropriate for me, called Anew Clean Purifying Gel Cleanser. All of these cleansers can be used with AVON’s Anew Clean Cleansing Brush, pictured above. I just got mine yesterday and used it for the first time today.
