Avon Anew Face Lifting Creme Review

by Bionic Beauty on 09.Oct.2007 · 2 comments

I’m here with a skincare review of Anew Clinical Thermafirm Face Lifting Creme by Avon. Bionic Beauty (aka me) tested this product nightly for two weeks. The lotion is very creamy and blends onto your face nicely! The scent is a little “flowery” for my taste (like something a grandmother would wear), and even some friends noticed the “off” scent. After application, the cream did leave skin soft and smoother than a bare face though.

However (and a BIG however)

After two days of use, my slightly sensitive skin began developing clogged pores everywhere! I jumped on Avon’s website for the ingredients in this product. The second ingredient is Glycerin (a known culprit for clogged pores in some women). I was shocked when I saw that the 6th ingredient was an Aluminum product! After seeing that, I won’t use this product on my face or anywhere else.

The Avon promise is “tighter, firmer, more lifted skin in 3 days”. I stuck through the test to see if this product delivered on its promise. I saw no change in my skins overall texture, fine lines, or firmness after the 2 week trial.

Between the off scent, potential baddy Aluminum and the clogged pores, this just isn’t worth it. Plenty of other products out there that are better performing and more healthy for your face.

I agree with everything Bionic said about the Anew creme. I haven’t had pimples in over a year (I am 42) and I used ANEW and I developed painful, pus-filled pimples that took way too long to go away. I even developed pimples on my eyebrow line! The creme sat on top of my skin and did not absorb. My skin had a shine to it. I stuck to the product for two weeks and I finally had to give up and went back to my Oil of Olay. Within two days my skin was back to normal. Thank goodness. The damage did not last…. I will NEVER ever use Anew again. Totaly waste of my money…..

Seems a shame, since I did have high hopes for the product but I guess that’s why there are so many anti-aging products on the market. Every person is a little different and hence, needs a little different product.

I can certainly say that pimples are not worth the benefits of the Anew for me. I’d rather rely on my good standby regimen. :)
