You guys know how much I like Avon and that I am impressed with their R&D, leading to some really great breakthrough products, right? Well, I am happy to let you guys know that I was one of 4 lucky people to get to sneak peek their brand new release, “ANEW REJUVENATE Glycolic Facial Treatment”.
I have heard lots of things about the benefits of Glycolic Acid for the skin, so I wanted to see what this was about. This treatment is in the form of a serum that dispenses from the bottle in a dropper that gives you just the right amount to use – you really do NOT need to overdo with this stuff. (*I can’t tell you the exact percentage that is in this, but it is the second ingredient, after only water, fyi.) They say:
- Overnight: 78% of women saw retexturized, more flawless skin.*
- In 1 week: See fine lines and wrinkles visibly fade. 94% of women showed improvement in texture & clarity.**
- Over time: 97% of women showed improvement in dullness and tone.**
(*In a consumer-perception study. **In a dermatologist-supervised clinical study.)
I can tell you that, knowing that I can have sensitive skin, I didn’t use this every night because I wasn’t sure how harsh this would be on my skin. I found that using it every other to every third night worked really well for me in the fact that I didn’t have any adverse reactions on my skin – no burning or lingering redness, which is a plus. I have seen a brightness in my skin, improving the dullness that can happen, too. This is also supposed to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, I don’t have a real problem with this, so I can’t really speak to the effectiveness of this for that, but that is more an issue with my skin versus any issue with the treatment.
I think if you have considered getting a glycolic peel, or considered adding a glycolic element to your skincare routine, you should take a look at Avon’s latest REJUVENATE product, because for less than the cost of just one peel (*on average), you can treat yourself at home & many more times, too.
You can pick this up online for $30, or from your local Avon rep. Let me know if you try this, as I’d love to hear your results, too.
