Once upon a time I was an Avon Lady.
I only really did it so I could say ’Ding Dong Avon Calling’ but as I never actually got to and I didn’t like the job it was all a bit of a dead loss really and I abandoned it pretty quickly!
This product is a facial serum, which is designed to do exactly what it says on the tin and give the skin on your face a virtual lift. How much my skin needed a virtual lift was debatable. What a ‘virtual’ lift actually is was quite intriguing as well. A facelift in a bottle? Unlikely, but worth a try!When I received my Virtual Lift Serum I was rather disappointed. It comes in a tall thin plain white box and it looks incredibly boring. I think it’s meant to look classy, but frankly it fails dismally!
The bottle doesn’t have a great deal of information on it. Just that it is an instant results serum. Obviously the strong, silent type that doesn’t feel the need to brag!
There is an impressive looking instruction leaflet in the box, but upon closer inspection it doesn’t say much more than ‘Instant Results Serum’ in lots of languages.
But onto the product itself – does it work? Or does it make you gesture wildly at passing books if you apply it incorrectly?Actually, it works!
You only need a couple of pumps of the serum because it is quite runny, so a little spreads a long way.It smells rather non-descript, not exactly unpleasant, just ordinary, maybe a little chemically. When you rub it in, it just feels very sticky and you are left with a plastic looking shiny face. It doesn’t look exactly attractive.
Avoid applying it directly to the eye area. The first time I used it I accidentally manage to glue my eyelid up because I hadn’t read the instructions. It may have looked very amusing but it isn’t highly recommended.Even the skin that is not tingling from the firming effect feels very smooth. It doesn’t claim to be a moisturiser but it does definitely have some moisturising properties.
Within a few minutes you get used to the ‘tight’ feeling and then you can proceed with applying make up or not applying make up if, like me you can’t be bothered! It does make an excellent base for make up and it doesn’t make the skin any oilier.You can apply the serum in the morning and it seems to last all day, or apply it before you go out at night. It isn’t recommended you apply it before going to sleep, because it has no long lasting benefits. It’s just a temporary firmness that would have gone by the time you wake up.
It isn’t a miracle worker (sorry, cosmetic products will not change your life!) You won’t look like you have had a face lift from using this, but at £8 a bottle it was never going to be the none surgical answer to anti ageing. It is more likely to just make you look a little less tired, especially around the eyesBasically this product just glues your wrinkly bits up for a few hours, but it isn’t expensive and it works so it’s defiantly worth giving it a go.
If you haven’t got an Avon rep, don’t try this at home with Copydex – its unlikely to be successful and you will be left smelling like fish! Instead you can order it online at www.avon.uk.com. Although it usually retails at £8 it is regularly on offer, I got mine for half price for example.And despite having used it for several weeks now, I’m pleased to report that I still haven’t found myself flagging the shelves at Ottakers …
