And here’s another A Box

Although I am often writing about my Avon business (which I love) I often find myself wondering what my customers would like to see.  I put myself out there and often get calls, texts and emails asking me about various products that I sell and always asking for books to be dropped off or mailed to them.

After some time planning my job of interacting with people and passing out my books and sample I have noticed that everyone is interested in something new.  Yes we all use mascara (usually black) and we all love eyeliner (colors vary) and of course we all need that skin care regimen….but what would really pump you up to go in there and order something new!

And I am finding out that our new A Box has everyone jumping.  A value of $48 but you can get it for only $10…..and a new one is available with every campaign…..I even buy them….was thinking of doing a raffle or a giveaway incentive on the ones I buy – if I can part with them.  I have a video here that maybe will have you looking at the A Box a different way…..maybe you would like one!  Need one?  Order it at www.youravon.com/ashapiro

Dont Miss this Collection!

Are you skeptical about purchasing the A Box?  Did you miss the last one?  If you did, here is why it is so worth the $10 – I even purchased one for myself.  You cant beat the price and yet if you ever wanted to try out some of Avon’s makeup – now is the time to do it.

Unfortunately the first A Box is not available any more so it is on to the next A Box available with Campaign 19 which just started.  Need a book to browse through?  Contact me and I will gladly mail you one …

Here is what you will receive for again –  $10

True Color Glimmersticks Waterproof Eye Liner

True Color Wide Awake Mascara

True Color Moisturizing Eye Makeup Remover Lotion

Anew Platinum Day Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 25

Anew Platinum Night Cream

This is a $52 Value but you can purchase it for only $10 with any $40 brochure purchase – you will also get free shipping!

Slow Down

The time has come to smell the flowers.  Our nation is always on the go.  I was always on the go.  Get up early in the morning, work, shop, cook, transport kids, – when do we stop.  I am guilty of this type of life also.  There is never enough time in the day to accomplish all we have to do.

So what if we stopped – turn off the electronics, sit on the patio with a cup of coffee and a good book for what?  an hour or two?  Will the world come to an end?  Cant the shopping wait until tomorrow or later?  This world is always on fast forward and life is short.  When was the last time you took a bath.  Not enough time?  Sure, a shower is quicker but not as relaxing.

Take time – read more, drink that cup of coffee on your patio not in the train station.  More and more young people are having heart attacks because of the fast pace and continuous working in our lives.

No more Dry Skin

Certain medical conditions can give you dry skin.  I recently found out that if you have a thyroid problem you are prone to dry skin.  I never had that problem because I am a big user of skin creams.  Hand cream is always in my bag and I use it constantly.  Bed time routine finds me lathering on my hands and arms and then I use a foot cream (Foot Works is amazing) for my feet.  Feels like I have silk on them in the morning.

But lately I have been a bit lazy and have now found my legs are getting scaly….so now I have started a routine of adding creams to my legs.  After two weeks they are soft and non-scaly – and I owe it all to Moisture Therapy….I keep this big bottle on my nightstand so I do not forget my beauty treatment at night…..How is your skin?

 

This big 33 oz Bonus Size is now only $10.99 each….there are three kinds.  One for sensitive skin, one for extra dry skin and one for dry itchy skin….check it out on page 19 of this campaign’s brochure here…..

 

 

What’s in your makeup bag?

I was never a makeup hound (is there such a thing?)  I was introduced to makeup when I was in my early 20s.  A friend of mine asked why I didnt wear any.  Maybe because of my background – strict mom and dad – afraid their baby girl would get in with the wrong crowd.  But of course, hitting 21 makes a difference.  Little mom and dad could do.  So when asked – became aware of makeup and with the help of this friend, out came the black eyeliner, foundation, blush, mascara and of course lipstick.

Back in those days it was the era of hair teasing and lots of hairspray.  I thought I looked cool – except all the makeup day in an day out started drying up my skin and you know, it was a pain taking it off every night, only to apply again in the morning.  And – it took a lot of time!

So eventually I started using less and less makeup (everyone said I had a beautiful face anyway) and I limited myself to how much I used.  The foundation was stopped all together and in its place I used creams and cleansing lotions to keep my face clear and moisturized.  And until this very day I use a bit of eyeliner on my lower lids, some mascara just to give a full look and maybe some blush depending on what I am doing that day.  Of course, if leaving the house there is always some lipstick and every two weeks I get my nails done…..so basically my makeup bag holds very little – because little is all I need.  In fact my makeup bag looks very much like the picture below….I can probably carry the A Box around with me to cover my makeup needs….maybe I will.

There are no free rides

As a mom of five I was working full time but felt with all the kids grown and out of the house I wanted something to do when I retire….along came Avon – I have been a Rep for the past 2 yrs, love it, meet great people and make extra money for those extra joys in life….I am since retired and loving my new life.

I often come across FB posts that want to know about work that pays well.  But these people dont want scams and dont want to put any money upfront.  Well, there are no such things as free rides.  What people dont realize these days is you have to work for what you want.  Nothing comes free….oh, except those scams.

Can Avon make you rich?  YES – with hard work.  Orders dont come to you.  No one is looking to spend money.  You have to go out and get them.  Depending on how hard you work for it – you will do well.  Get out there and leave books all over, talk to your neighbors and friends and tell them to pass the word around.  Tell people Avon is more than just makeup.  An analyzes of my business just showed my highest sales is in fashion – I sell tops, pants, shoes, sandals and yesterday I delivered a coat to a customer who loved it.  She tried it on right there and was surprised how well it fit.  And that is another things – dont like it?  Fine, we take it back to be returned or exchanged….your choice!

So dont look for those get-rich-quick-schemes…..think about how long Avon has been in business (130 years) and realize they must be doing something right!  And yes we do have a start up fee – but how much is your choice…..I myself went for the smaller bundle – it is not just money upfront either…..you get products you can use to start your business.  One of my team members went for the big bundle ($100) because she wanted all the products and the tote bag also.
