Dry Hair?

Being in the house most of the day – with heat on or air conditioning on – tends to give your hair that dry, brittle feeling. Let’s face it, we all need sun, including our hair. Plus the stale air in the house tends to circulate a lot.

So the search is on for great hair treatments – shampoo and conditioner and of course some serum or maybe even a hair mask. And I think I have found the best ones because they are doing my hair great. Plus this huge bottle is lasting a long time.

Propoli for your hair

Catch the buzz. Made with beeswax, honey and royal jelly (what bees eat), our rejuvenating shampoo provides weightless volume and hydration while giving your tresses a fuller, thicker and stronger appearance. Each, 16.9 fl. oz.

Masks,Gloves & Sanitizer

When I started Avon never in all my dreams would I have thought we would be selling more than makeup. We then went into fashion selling beautiful clothes, jewelry and skin care items.

Effective next week we will now be selling those essentials everyone is looking for. Hand soap is now on sale and going like crazy. I go through two bottles a week, washing my hands even when I bring in the mail.

We are also going to sell gloves – great for when going shopping (and please dispose of them properly). Masks are coming also – at a mere $5.99 each and of course, we all need hand sanitizer which I only use when I am out because I use hand soap in the house.

All these items can be ordered online or if you are like me, I prefer having a brochure in front of me to order from. If you would like a free book, please let me know as they will be going out on Monday to my regular customers. Or just click the Avon book to the right and it will take you to my website.

Have a good day and stay safe……

Would you do it?

I have been challenged to sell 100 shower gels in the month of March. I love challenges and have often tried them. I am in a challenge to read 70 books this year and so far have read 13 for this challenge.

But books costs way more than shower gels. Especially during this great sale. Would you buy a shower gel for only $2.00? I have already sold 45 of them because….well, you cant just buy one!


It’s almost over

One of the things I loved about my business was the fact that I could offer customers a 10% discount on their first order. No matter how large or small, they get 10% off. It makes a big difference in your order. One customer spent $700 and got $70 off…that is a large discount.

But alas everything comes to an end. And starting March 3 this will end too. I am sad because I got many customers because of that one line – 10% discount when you use code WELCOME10 – But there is still time to use that code. So if you have never ordered Avon from me….make sure you use it soon.

Did you also know that you get lower prices when you order directly with me from my website? A customer recently called trying to buy some Skin So Soft bath oil. The bonus size was going for $30.00. She had always ordered directly from Avon. But when she tried she was told she can get the same bottle for only $17.99 if she bought it through a representative. They put her in touch with me and when she ordered online through my website…..she got it for the lower price.

There are so many advantages in shopping with a representative. And there are more to come. At least take a look at the recent brochure – here is a virtual link….and when you are ready, shop through my website at www.youravon.com/ashapiro

Where else can you get shower gels for only $2.00??

Do you like your hair color?

Let’s face it. Most of us have changed our hair color at one time or another. I remember being 16 and deciding I didnt like my brown color (still dont) and made my hair black. It was the darkest I have ever gone and still dont know why I did it.

The older I got the lighter my hair became and the dryer and courser it also became. The only thing I hate about coloring my hair is that when it grows out (and my hair grows fast) I then have my blonde color, my natural brown color and now also added my gray. So I end up with tri-color hair. I often think of letting it grow out and becoming all gray…I am in my 70s so why not.

But alas, I end up hating it. It isnt a nice color gray and my hair is so course so it looks “old” and I feel old. So once again I take the trip to the drug store, and buy my Loreal hair color.

This is the before….

I wasnt crazy about doing my hair again and just needed a change. So I decided to try a new hair color…one I sell myself. I wanted to get away from the too blonde color and although the box said medium blonde I knew it would come out a bit darker as I usually go with a lighter blonde. And so this was the result….which I am pleased with.

this is the after

Loving my new color, the fullness and shine that I have with this new product – Avon Chi Essentials Hair Color.

Give your hair Chi Essentials

The older you get the more your hair gets duller, dryer and limp. Your skin tends to dry also. So the thing to do is moisturize. Every night before bed, with the skin care bottle on my night table I moisturize my legs, arms and face. Then I use a foot cream to keep my feet moisturized.

But the one thing I tend to forget is that my hair needs its own moisturizer. I have used so many shampoos…..I think I have used them all. The ones with coconut, or argan oil, etc. but still feel my hair is dry and limp. A good cut is always the best thing for your hair, so I go every 6 weeks for one.

Recently I tried another shampoo…..called CHI. It’s a unique blend of certified organic botanicals that include aloe vera, pomegranate, hibiscus and other nutrient-rich ingredients for healthy-looking hair. All sulfate- and PABA-free. It’s a gentle daily shampoo with essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids that won’t strip hair of its natural oils—plus it’s safe for color-treated hair. The nutrient-rich blend provides balanced care for the hair and scalp while helping to maintain nourishment and shine.


Bundled with the shampoo of course, there is conditioner. Containing the same ingredients it strengthens your hair from root to ends, increases hair’s elasticity and helps to smooth split ends and frizz.

If your hair is already damaged, try Chi Serum and protecting thermal spray to help protect hair from the damaging heat of styling tools

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Been asking myself that too. Apparently you need it to add moisture to your skin. The explanation is long – see here – but basically I must admit it does work.

Hyaluronic acid is a super hydrator that can hold up to 1,000 times its own weight in water. As we age, our body’s natural production of hyaluronic acid slows down. It’s no wonder then that hyaluronic acid has become a key ingredient in gels and serums across beauty brands.

The discovery of hyaluronic acid dates back to 1934, when two researchers, Karl Meyer and John Palmer, isolated an unknown molecule from the vitreous body of a cow’s eyes (1). Further investigation revealed that the substance contained uronic acid and another sugar molecule. The researchers later named the substance hyaluronic acid, a term derived from a Greek word “hyalos”, meaning glass, plus uronic acid (1). Although the compound was isolated in acid form, it demonstrated salt-like characteristics when put under physiological conditions. The salt formed was called sodium hyaluronate, a neutralized form of hyaluronic acid. The chemical structure and use of hyaluronan remained unknown until in the 1950s when Karl Meyer and his colleagues first established its chemical structure (1). Surprisingly, Endre Balazs had first used this compound commercially as an egg-white substitute in a bakery in 1942 after applying for a patent.

This is my favorite gel cream containing Hyaluronic acid…..what is yours?
