Avon Giveaway- 5 Winners!

My first review and giveaway, I'm so excited. Thanks so much to MomSelect and Avon!

I had the opportunity to try Avon Advance Techniques Professional Hair Care Instant Recharge Treatment. I received several varieties and tried the Intense Repair, which states it is for dry, damaged hair. Since this is winter in Minnesota, I figured dry just about sums it all up.

The product comes in a box with four separate weekly treatments and looks a little like the hot oil treatments I used way back in high school. Unlike the hot oil treatments, these required no preheating (a major plus- with 3 small kids, I like things streamlined). There was more than enough product in one tube to treat my just-past-shoulder-length hair. The first thing I noticed was the scent; it was reminiscent of my Pantene days. The next thing I noticed (and this is my only complaint) is how easy it is to lose the little white cap on the floor of a white bathtub! I had to get down on my hands and knees ('cause I am blind without my glasses) to find it before it went down the drain. Okay, it was actually kind of funny in retrospect.

Then the results; my hair was softer and more manageable all week, and after the second week's treatment it was even softer still. I am sold, the product really works.

Now for the fun part... this product isn't even available to buy yet (it should be out in January 2009), but I have 5 to give away to 5 lucky winners! I have-

*1 box Intense Repair
*2 boxes Frizz Control
*2 boxes Volumizing

I absolutely LOVE the kids bubble bath! With a DD who has "issues" which cause us not to be able to use bubbles in the tub much, I love Avon's since they are extra gentle and I dont have to worry as much!!

I am also a follower!! :)

If I were to get chosen, I would like the Volume one...but I'd be happy with anything! You have my email and phone number already...so do I still need to post it here? :)

I love this item: Multi Piece Serve and Store Set 913-417. They have a lot of wonderful gift items.

I'd especially love the intensive repair because my hair is quite brittle and hopefully this would help.

Thanks for the chance!

I love the dazzling liquid lip color in Diamond and would like to win the intense repair or the volumizer for my lackluster head of hair!

I regularly buy the Avon foot works line - callus cream, powder lotion, etc. It works and smells wonderful!


I would choose the Volumizing product - my hair lies flat as a board!

My favorite Avon product is the ANEW FORCE EXTRA Triple Lifting Day Cream. I have been using different variations of the ANew products for over 4 years now and have watched how the product line has evolved. It seems Avon is constantly thriving to improve their products and making them as advanced and effective as possible. I do believe that as a result of using this product my skin has never looked better and felt as healthy as it does now!

If I were to win this amazing Avon Advanced Techniques I would love to Intense Repair Version. However, I think I can also benefit just as much from the Frizz Control Version too! So either one will work with my tresses!

Thank you so much for the opportunity to enter.

It's been a while since I ordered Avon, they have a lot of new stuff! I've always loved the bubble bath. I had no idea they had mineral makeup, definitely going to have to try that.
