AVON by Tabitha Vavrick

Do you remember when the AVON lady came to your home with a giant case filled with AVON products?  “DING DONG, AVON CALLING!” was the slogan back then.  Well, although the AVON lady no longer comes door-to-door, you can still enjoy her products via their website.

If you don’t already have an AVON representative, please consider my cousin Tabitha Vavrick.  You might think that AVON must be really expensive, and why should you buy from a website when you can go to your local grocery or drug store, Target or Wal-Mart, well, these are good products and they are cheaper than you might expect.

The huge 24 fl oz bottles of bubble bath in the back are typically $8, but they are almost always on sale, or they have a buy 2 for $10 deal.  That’s the deal I got with this order.  The 3rd one you see is from a previous order, the 2nd one that came with that is currently on the side of the bathtub.

Those 5 fl oz bottles of shower gel that you see are typically about $6.  I know, shocking considering how small they are right?  But get this, I almost always get them on sale for $1.89.  You have to admit that that is a really good price.

Those little 1.7 fl oz bottles of deodorant are typically $1.25 each, but I almost always get them on sale for only .99.  I mean you can’t beat that price.

I haven’t taken a bath since I was 9 years old when I was told that I was too old to take a bath.  I can’t tell you how much I have missed just sitting in the bathtub soaking in the hot water and relaxing my really tense back muscles.  My back pain is from my spinal disease, but sometimes the muscles attribute to some of the pain, and the hot water really helps.

One bottle of bubble bath might last me more than a month and the body wash, believe it or not lasts a few weeks.  You really don’t need that much.  Just squeeze a little bit into your shower sponge and start washing and you will see that it has enough soap to clean your entire body.

The reason I like to buy those deodorants is not just the price, but also because I am so sick of using a “manly” stick.  It’s dry and it rubs and pulls my hair and it just doesn’t feel good.  These roll-on deodorants are wet, but they dry really fast.  They don’t just make them for women, they make them for men too.  In fact, they have a whole section just for men, so I tell you men, don’t be afraid to buy some AVON for yourselves.  Don’t you deserve it too?

Just to note, the total price of all of the products you see in the image, with the exception of one of the bottles of bubble bath, was $21.31 with shipping being $3 and tax $1.82 for a grand total of $26.13.  They almost always have a free shipping coupon code when you buy $30 worth, so if you spend a little more than I did you could get all this and more shipped to your house for free via UPS.

So remember Tabitha Vavrick the next time you are ready to buy some makeup, skin care, bath & body, perfumes and hair care.  They make great gifts too.

Mister Steamy

I’ve seen the commercials for this steaming pile er um I mean ball and decided I would give it a go.  I really bought one because I am always forgetting about the last load that I do and it always ends up sitting in the dryer for days before I remember it’s in there.  I end up having to soak something then put it in there so it gets everything else wet so it dries everything so there are no wrinkles.  I thought this might be easier and faster.

So I bought one today and I didn’t know they are hard plastic, almost hard as a rock.  It has a sponge inside of it and you pour 2-4oz of water in there, you can’t just pour it from the tap like the commercial (or picture) shows because it says do not over fill it.  So I used a measuring cup because I don’t want to disobey a direct order from the directions lol.

The dryer only had 3 dress shirts in there and I tossed the rock hard ball in there and turned the dryer on.  Oh my goodness, it was banging in the dryer and it was freaking me out so I went into the bedroom so I wouldn’t have to hear it.  I go back in the kitchen and the dryer isn’t even going anymore.  I open the door and to my surprise everything is wrinkle free.  So all is well afterall.

So I guess if you put it in a dryer filled with towels and shirts and what not then it will be enough to keep it from banging all over the place, I highly doubt it but you never know.

I think what happened was it was so unbalanced that it just stopped.  Thank goodness it has that function to prevent the dryer from breaking down.  So I think from now on when I use it, I’ll only use it on a full load, not just 3 shirts.  Good to know.

The box was $15 at the grocery store and it comes with 2 balls.  I guess if you’re buying something with balls you need a complete pair otherwise you feel off balance.  Hmmm maybe that’s why my dryer shut down, it didn’t have the balls to finish it’s cycle.
