It seems like almost every cosmetic line has jumped on the anti-aging bandwagon.Wherever I turn now at the cosmetic counters, the anti-aging line is being touted and it confuses us consumers all the more because which now, of all these brands, is truly effective in terms of preventing the ravaging effects of the sun and wind on one's skin as one ages.
I've always been a try-first-and-see person as far these claims go. One of the earliest brands to claim to be anti-aging turned out ineffective for me. I did not really feel any difference after consuming about 2 bottles of it.
A blogger friend, Earth, just wrote a review on Avon's Anew Rejuvenate Line. She has actually tried the product line already -- all 6 of them. And she has nothing but great words about its effect on her.
While I have not tried this Avon line, Earth's word is good enough for me to want to. At my age, I really need to take care of my skin since it tends to get dry in many areas already unlike when I was in my teens when oily skin was my problem.The sun also affects older skin than younger ones so I really need to be conscious always of protecting my exposed skin to the sun.
The great news is that Earth is sponsoring a contest that will award this whole Anew Rejuvenate line of Avon to a lucky blog reader of hers. You too can join till January 30, 2010. If you are interested, head on over to
Earth's blog for the mechanics of the contest.
As for me, I definitely want to try this out. After all, if it truly works on someone my age (a mother of 2 teens and 2 adults), that alone is the best testimony to the effectiveness of the anti-aging product, right?
So here goes. I am crossing my fingers that I win this contest.as I am excited to try out something that is highly recommended by Earth. I've seen her lately and yes, her skin looked very good.
