Today I wanted to rave about the Avon Clearskin Pore Penetrating Black Mineral Cleanser , a cleanser ideal for oily, blemish-prone skin. The pore minimising cleanser may be a little scary to apply (it's black!) but there's nothing to fear as it easily washes away to reveal smooth mattified skin.
What I love about this cleanser is it's kind of a two-in-one product with the cleanser containing oil absorbing powders to remove pore-clogging dirt and oil making it perfect for anyone suffering from oily skin or spots. Plus it feels like a mild face scrub with the walnut shell powder that lightly buffs away dead skin cells to give an overall brighter complexion. I really think with continued use anyone with oily skin will see a difference in their skin!
How I personally like to use it, is in the morning. I first splash my face with warm water to open up my pores and then with wet hands I lather up a small blob on the cleanser to create a lather. I then massage the lather over my face, concentrating on my chin and nose area where I tend to develop the most blackheads. To remove I use a warm flannel (you can use your hands if you wish) and wipe of the cleanser, this also exfoliates the skin further. Then to close my pores I splash my face again but with cold water. This also wakes me up!
If you are looking for a new face wash/cleanser and you are prone to blemishes or oily skin then I'd highly recommend this one. I now have my eyes on the Avon Clearskin Pore Penetrating Black Mineral Mask!

Hi everyone, It's Fee from Makeup Savvy here! Some of you may remember me from last year on the Avon blog with lots of nail art posts. Well I'm back, and with more talk of nails plus a few beauty reviews this time!
Avon have recently launched some amazing Nail Art Press on Nails in a range of designs and here I have 5 of them to show you. From faking French nails to going all out with ombre sparkly tips there really is something for everyone here and they truly are more than easy to use. Simply select which press on nails out of the 24 provided in the pack fit your natural nails best, peel back the adhesive strip and press firmly on to the nail. It really is as simple as that. No glue, no drying time and certainly no mess!
When applying the nails I found them such a breeze to apply and it was in fact faster than painting them even with a single nail polish. I did however find some of the press on nails slightly too wide for my own fairly narrow nails but this was resolved by simply filing the sides of the press on nails down a little. Other than loving the speed in which they take to apply I also love how the press-on nails instantly felt like your own nails as they stick well and don't budge or lift – I was impressed! As for removing the press on nails, slowly ease the side away from your own natural nail and remove any sticky residue left on your nails with nail polish remover.
Clockwise from top left – Check Mate, Dots & Stripes, Dark Moon, Classic French and Stardust.
Above are just 5 of the designs available with a few offering 2 designs per box as you can see with the 'Check Mate' and 'Dots & Stripes' Press On Nails. My personal favourites include the 'Classic French' as they look so chic and clean; perfect for work nails or for a polished look, the 'Dots & Stripes' nails due to the mix of designs and 'Dark Moon' as I have yet to master half moon nail art without making a mess, plus I love the gold against the black nail.
If you love nail art but find it tricky or you are after easy to apply false nails then I couldn't recommend these more highly!
