I love Avon stuff - always feel like I'm getting a good bargain cos I only ever buy stuff when it's on special :P

In particular, I like the Tranquil Moments aromatherapy body wash, bubble bath and deodorant. And sometimes the Skin So Soft body moisturiser and bath oil. Mmmm.

I don't buy make-up from them anymore because they colours never seem to be how they look in the brochure. And have about 20 chap sticks - one in every handbag and every room of the house :)

So it's mainly the body products that I get - much cheaper than the Body Shop but just as delish.

My mum's finally got a new, STABLE Avon lady after several dismal attempts by replacements (one boy who took the money AND the products and ran...) after her long time lady retired last year.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Avon is great and they have really good specials every month. Their skin care products are good and I like their shower gels and bubble baths.

I haven't tried the make up yet, mainly because I prefer to see what I'm buying and I'd be scared that the colour shown in the book wouldn't be the same as the real colour. Same with the perfume, I'd like to know what it smells like first.

Like Milkyway said, the skin so soft range is lovely.

got my avon order the other day and the lipstick was nothing like the colour i picked. it turned out to be reddish. i am quite pale so red doesnt suit me :( also one of my items wasnt in there so i have to let me sister know to see what happened to it. she sent me down heaps of samples though so im happy with that :)

i have ordered that 2 in 1 cleaners that ally recommended with the tea tree in it from avon. ive found the clean and clear cleanser i am using isnt doing anything at all for my skin besides drying it out.
