It seems that practically every Avon product I am partial to ends up discontinued.

I love, love, LOVE the short-lived 'Hollywood Glamor Creme', but it had a very short sales life, and I had to buy my last jar on Ebay.

Also loved a few lipsticks shades that have all gradually disappeared.

I'm not wild about their scents, but I love Mesmerize and was crushed when they discontinued it. They do occasionally sell a purse-spray.

I do like their bubble baths, their On-Duty antiperspirants, and their antibacterial scrub.

The Glimmersticks waterproof eyeliner. They go on so easily and smoothly, and it stays put. Excellent product!

Isn't it frustrating when companies discontinue our favorite makeup? and bras! or shoes. I stock up when I find something I love. The companies like Avon, though are always introducting something new and sometimes we find colors or products we like even better.

The only Avon product I use is Timeless perfume. I love it and get many compliments. I love it when people tell me I smell good!

The Anew Skin Care products are my favorite! They've just come out with Anew Reversalist with Activinol .... Incredible! The timeless Skin So Soft products are fabulous as well!

Avon's Clearly C serum. Absolutely wonderful, leaves my skin soft and smooth. It rivals some of the more expensive vitamin C products out there.

Millennium perfume line...wonderful smell, but OF COURSE they discontinued it! I still have a container of the body talc that I use in very small doses, trying to make it last!!
I also like their Naturals Hair and Body Shampoo-I bought Coconut smoothie and Mango smoothie and they both smell great.

Way too many Avon products I was partial to have discontinued. For example: Hollywood Glamour Creme (short-lived), a few lipstick shades, a colorless foundation they sold for awhile (a newer, similar product they have now just isn't the same), Bird of Paradise scent.

What they still carry that I'm partial to: Clearskin Antibacterial Scrub (although I read on another thread that it was discontinued), Mesmerize fragrance (went away and was reinstated), bubble-baths, Tranquil Moments products, Astonishing Length Mascara (Maybelene's Great Lash is still my #1), and their deodrants.

I'm also a fairly new rep.

I love the:
Luminosity face cream- spf 15
On Duty deodorant
Their new bags and their jewelry.

Even though I sell it, I also buy alot of their stuff. I couldn't sell a product I didn't believe in and they are inexpensive.
