When you have extremely oily skin like I do, you hold on tightly to products that actually do what they promise to do: namely, control the oil, reduce the shine, and help you feel like you have real, honest-to-goodness skin beneath the oil slick. So many products claim to improve oily skin, but really have little to no effect.
Years ago, I fell in love with Avon’s Pore-fection Skin Refining mask, because it helped clear up my breakouts, helped reduce the oiliness, tightened my pores, and smoothed my skin, because as I rinse, there’s just enough exfoliation to make my face smooth and soft.
I noticed that Avon pulled one of its favorite tricks and decided to discontinue this great product, since I haven’t seen it on their site in a while. Today I noticed the Pore-fection skin cleanser and toner (which I’ve never tried) are on sale, “while supplies last”, so I guess the entire line is being kicked to the curb.
I like Avon, but if there’s one thing that has always exasperated me about the company, it is their tendency to constantly change up product, and with no notice. Had I known this mask was going to be discontinued, I’d have bought a few to tide me over. I joke that if I like a product, that means it will be discontinued soon, but it is actually pretty true. I understand needing to make room for new products, but really, does Avon truly need yet another anti-wrinkle cream, cellulite cream, or my favorite, bust cream? Yeah, I think we could have skipped some of the nonsense items to save room for the good stuff. How ’bout ditching the 10 pages of bras and sticking to products that customers love and are loyal to? (How many women purchase their bras from Avon anyway?)
And how come the bust cream is never discontinued?
