I first tried this Avon Anew Thermafirm Face Lifting Cream about 6 years ago and have since repurchased it a few times.
~ Packaging ~
It comes in a silver coloured glass pot with a screw on plastic lid. The lid is also silver around the edges, but the top of the pot is plain white plastic. The pot feels quite heavy.
‘Anew Clinical Thermafirm Face Lifting Cream’, is on the front of the pot in white lettering and the pot contains 30ml of cream.
~ Price and availability ~
The cream is by Avon and is not in the current Avon brochure, but it is available online at Amazon.co.uk for £12.99.
~ In use ~
The cream is white in colour. It feels very light and you don’t need to use much of it to get a good coverage.
I smooth the cream under my eye area, which is my main concern when it comes to my skin aging. I use less product on the rest of my face as I feel I need a heavier coverage around my eye area.
The cream is nice and easy to apply and it rubs in easily without any residue or stickiness left on your skin. It sinks into my skin very quickly.
My skin is left looking hydrated and radiant after I have used this cream. I wouldn’t say it has given me a face lift and I think the names that these creams call themselves are just made up to appeal to as many people as possible.
While I don’t think that my skin looks younger as a result of using this cream, I think it does improve the appearance of my skin, giving me a radiant glow and my skin looks healthy and hydrated. I think moisturising your skin helps to prevent it showing signs of aging so the cream could help to maintain your youthful skin, but I wouldn’t say it has taken years off me and I don’t feel that it really lifts my skin as the name of the cream would suggest.
I have never had any irritation from using this cream, but I know my auntie used this cream and she had a reaction to it. I did once get a bit of cream on my eyelashes and it went in my eye, which was inconvenient, but I had no problems after I rinsed it out.
I always think 30ml doesn’t sound like much, but each pot lasts me months and months, even with regular use so I think it is good value.
I would recommend this cream and I have and would repurchase this product. It makes my skin look and feel smooth and hydrated. It doesn’t work miracles, but I didn’t expect it to. I enjoy using this cream and it feels like it is doing my skin some good.
