Get tame with Avon’s anti-frizz capsules

If you’re into fun gee-whiz products, be sure to check out Avon’s Advance Techniques professional hair care “Anti-Frizz Capsules”. Packed in soft-gelatin type capsules, you simply twist off the end tab and squeeze the serum into your hands. Apply to hair ends to calm splits and dryness; then across your hair to tame flyaways. My hair is above the shoulder and I had WAY more than I needed in the capsule. I used the remainder on my elbows and knees (yes, shine and anti-frizz serums work well on skin too!); but longer haired gals should have plenty of product to work with.

The nifty factor is cool, but I still prefer to squeeze out the amount of product I truly need. However, this Avon anti-frizz serum is certainly worthwhile and a quality performer. My hair stayed calm and flyaway free all day!

The Avon Advance Techniques Anti-Frizz Capsules are $5 at Avon.comBionic Beauty reviews Avon's Advance Techniques Anti-Frizz Capsules. You’ll get 18 capsules.

Wanna be a Bond Girl?

by Bionic Beauty on 11.Nov.2008 · 2 comments

This Friday the next James Bond installment hits movie theaters… Quantum of Solace featuring the very cute (er… handsome) Daniel Craig.

And as always, there will be a Bond Girl. That famed and beautiful women who is strong but sexy and bends to Bond’s romantic whiles. Avon has released a fragrance in honor of the upcoming movie, Bond Girl 007-

“No James Bond 007 movie is complete without a Bond Girl, the modern-day epitome of enticing empowerment and serious sex appeal. Women want to be her; men want to be with her – she’s impossible to resist! Now with a little help from Avon and their seductive new fragrance, Bond Girl 007, every woman can feel like a Bond Girl—smart, empowered, resourceful, confident and sexy.” (Source: Avon)

Bond Girl perfume fragrance from Avon

Since I’m all about girls being strong, powerful, heiny-kicking and beautiful at the same time, I was quick to add this perfume to my “Bionic Must Have” list.

I adore the bottle! Pink, curvy and this really cool silver “hook” at the top. It looks super cool hanging out on my counter. The scent isn’t really my cup of tea, but that’s mostly because I prefer fresh based scents (water, more freesia, tropical notes, sporty type scents like Adidas Moves, Curve Wave). This one changed quite a bit on my skin and became a bit too “girly” for me. But… with that said, I can see how this fragrance would really appeal to sensual fragrance lovers. It’s got a lot of layers and the scent wears extremely well through the day.

Here’s the scent “note” breakdown: “blend of velvety florals, cool freshness and warm woods featuring top notes of white peach and orange blossom. Mid notes include jasmine, calypso orchid and freesia, followed by a drydown of amber, cashmere wood, patchouli and musks.”

Here’s to women achieving Powerful Beauty on the big screen, and off!

Bond Girl 007 Parfum is available at Avon.com for $30Bond Girl 007 perfume from Avon (it’s a *big* bottle by the way! yeah!), or order it from your local Avon rep.

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.
