85 Reasons to Buy Avon Dry Oil Spray and a Competition

Avon Clinical Eye Lift I make no secret of the fact I am a massive fan of Avon. It's no coincidence that Avon has been selling beauty products under the brand name since 1939. Their constant innovation and quality ingredients have built a level of trust with the general public that has really stood the test of time. I grew up with it, and it is still the only brand I turn to for certain products, such as the AMAZING Clinical Eyelift, which is so much cheaper than other eyelift products and is so effective. It's great to have a product that you can use on the eyelid, especially as I get dry skin on my eyes, so I find it really soothing. It works, too, I always look more awake after I've used it. It is half price in the current catalogue, so it's a great time to invest in a pot!

Over the years, Avon have branched out way beyond skincare and beauty. They stock an impressive range of clothes, including fitness wear, nightwear and lingerie, as well as beautiful watches and jewellery, including lovely designer brands. They cater for children too, with their own character merchandise and toys too.

One of Avon's most iconic brands is Skin So Soft, and an enduring favourite from the range is Dry Oil Spray. Available in Original, Fast Hydration or Silky Moisture, there are five of these versatile wonder products sold every minute. Just how versatile is it though? Most people who use it will have discovered a plethora of beauty uses from this one little bottle, but there are a wealth of other applications for it too. Everyone loves a good life hack, so I've added the full list of eighty five different uses for Skin So Soft Dry Oil Spray below.
