Keep combination skin fresh and clean with Avon!

Fall is the hardest time for my combination skin - it's not oily like in the summer, or dry like in the winter - just in a weird limbo state where it doesn't know what the hell it's doing - so I need something that won't over-strip or under-moisturize which is why for this time of year I love:

Avon Anew Clean Illuminating Rich Cleansing Foam - 150ml - $12 - an alcohol-free cleanser that balances normal/combination skin by removing oil without stripping moisture.
Avon Konjac Sponge - $12 - made from 100% natural vegetable, it's a natural way to cleanse pores,  eliminating dirt and oil as it gently exfoliates and moisturizes skin - making it great for all skin types, even sensitive.

It's easy to use and just looks tiny when you first get it - once you soak the sponge in warm water for 15 minutes before the first use, it softens and expands to about one and a half times its size - after the first use it just takes a couple of minutes of soaking to get it up to speed.

Gently squeeze the excess water out and apply a small amount of cleanser or just use the sponge plain and rub on the face in upward, circular motions, concentrating on dry or blackhead-prone areas. Don't overscrub, it doesn't require a lot of pressure to work it mildly exfoliates as it removes dirt, sunscreen and makeup - just not eye makeup so use your usual remover on that.

Once done, rinse well with cool water and gently squeeze the excess water out by pressing the sponge between your palms. Don’t twist, wring, or pull on it. Then use the cotton hanger to let it dry out.

And to keep things sanitary, every couple of weeks, place your konjac sponge in very hot (but not boiling) water for about 5 minutes to disinfect it.

And while you are doing your Avon shopping, make sure you score one of these: only $10 with every $40 purchase!
