I think by now you all know that I love finding unique ingredients in skincare. So when one of the latest Avon skincare items fell upon my doorstep and it contained Tahitian black pearl, I knew I had to start trying it out immediately.
The Anew Ultimate Supreme Advanced Performance Crème retails for $60 (but it’s on sale for $45 right now!) and promises to moisture the skin and make it soft and radiant. I can tell you that the softness claim is 100% accurate. When I am applying this to my skin, there is a velvet-like texture that results. My skin feels uniquely subtle and soft when I use this cream.
My skin has not broken out while using this product and hasn’t been screaming for more moisture at all. While I do love the way my skin feels after I apply it, I do have to give a warning that there is a relatively strong scent incorporated.
Now the Tahitian black pearl ingredient has been found to help draw water into the skin due to its calcium carbonate component. As well, it provides an iridescent look to the skin while making the skin tone even. In addition to this ingredient, the cream has the Avon Celluvive Complex which includes Yanang leaf extract to help skin repair itself and helps battle multiple signs of aging.
I also noticed that there is glycolic acid in this cream which I love so make sure to try and only use this at night as the acid will make the upper layers of skin more sensitive to the sun. I have no idea about the strength of glycolic acid in the cream but I have never felt my skin tingle after applying it (so it’s probably lower than 5%).
Overall, I am pretty impressed with the Anew Ultimate Supreme Advanced Performance Crème . I feel like it would be a great addition to the skincare routine of anyone over 30 as it does help with hydration and signs of aging. Just be careful if you are sensitive to scents/perfumes as this one is pretty noticeable.
til next time…
