City Pulse

By Mary Dooe

Avon has long been known as a great beauty company that caters to the needs of real women. It comes as no surprise, then, that they recently launched a new skincare line, liiv Botanicals, which aims to care for a woman’s skin and nurture a woman’s beauty inside and out.

The products are created using Plant Essence Technology™, where active plant extracts like Porulaca and Banaba go directly into repairing and rejuvenating the skin. In as little as three days, women notice a more natural and youthful finish to their face and bodies.

The line includes a day moisturizer with spf, night moisturizer, facial and body cleansers all with lust worthy ingredients like bamboo powder (a natural exfoliate). All the products are clinically and dermatologically tested, preservative and dye free, while facial products are also fragrance-free.

To celebrate this new collection, BN will be giving away sets of the Moisture Boosting Body Butter and Revitalizing Body Scrub to five lucky readers. Just send an email to with “Avon Calling” in the subject line and include your name, telephone number and email address in the body of the email. All entries must be in by Thursday, March 19th.

The products are also available exclusively through Avon Representatives, who you can locate at 1-800-FOR-AVON or
