Pros: Makes my skin firm and my pores small!
I started using Avon Anew Rejuvenate Night Revitalizing Cream (which I'll simply call 'Rejuvenate' from here on) about two months ago. I wanted to give it some time so I could see some real results before I reviewed it. I can honestly say that this night cream has smoothed my skin and made my pores much smaller. It's definitely worth the price. I normally use only LUSH products on my skin, which I still use for daytime. However I will continue to buy 'Rejuvenate' and use it because I really like the results.
What Avon Says:
Avon says that this product is anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, lightening and pore-refining. 'Formulated to work like thousands of micro-extractions to help visibly shrink pores. Exfo-Smoothing Complex: Designed to resurface skin to help clarify and reveal a fresher, younger look. Revitafresh Technology: Engineered to reinforce cell bonds and help make skin look more even and smoother. In just 7 days produces results of a professional anti-aging facial.'
How much does it cost, how much do you get?
Actually, I received my first container of 'Rejuvenate' for free from my Avon Representative. It was a full container, not a sample. I guess she rewarded me for spending so much darn money with her! The normal cost of this product is about $32.00 USD and you get 1.7 ounces of cream. You can buy this cream on the Avon web site at www.avon.com, or you can order it through a Representative.
What is the consistency like and how does it smell?
This cream is very light and it absorbs into my skin immediately without leaving any sort of greasy, gross feeling. It's white coloured but it's almost transparent. There is a light perfume scent with the cream that I can't quite place, but it does NOT smell like Grandma's cold creme. If I had to name a scent I would have to say it sort of smells like 'Lauren Perfume.' I really enjoy the scent and I am glad that it doesn't smell like PONDS. This jar of 'Rejuvenate' goes a long way, as I apply just a little bit of the cream on my fingers as it works into my skin. I'd say I'll probably be able to use this jar for at least 4-5 months.
How do you apply 'Rejuvinate'?
First I wash my face, normally with a LUSH product, or just hot water and a wash cloth. When my face is completely dry, I lightly apply 'Rejuvenate' with my finger tips. I do this before bed only. My face looks sort of wet as soon as I apply the cream, but it really absorbs quickly. (I have dry skin)
How does it work/What were the results?
After using this cream religiously for approximately 8 weeks, I cannot begin to say how much my skin has improved.
1) My pores are significantly smaller than they were 2 months ago. I used to have a couple of 'problem pores' which would always get dirty and form blackheads. Those pores no longer do that. I can't believe it, because nothing has ever stopped the blackheads. Also, when looking in an enhancing mirror, my pores look so much smaller. It's unreal.
2) Because my pores are so much smaller, my skin is so much tighter and more smooth. I am constantly getting complements on how great I look lately, and it's due to this wonderful cream. My skin feels more toned and firm and I have had no blemishes whatsoever, even at 'that time of the month.'
3) I am 37 years old and I have dry skin, and even though I am out in the sun and I do use a tanning bed once in awhile, my skin no longer feels flakey and dry. I have always had a problem with dry skin, but 'Rejuvenate' seems to be helping to correct that problem.
I strongly recommend this night cream if you are looking for something that will tone your skin and shrink your pores. The price seems a big high but it's definitely worth it because the jar will last a long time (only one application a day), and the results are tremendous. The scent is nice and there is no greasy mess. I feel really good about 'Rejuvenate!' If you have an Avon Representative, you should ask her for a sample!
