Has anyone tried Avon Luminosity Skin Brightening Complex or Luminosity Ultra? I'm curious about how it works - I don't want it to "lighten" my skin shade-wise (I've heard things about it having a "whitening agent" in it), I'd rather it be like one of the new brightening moisturizers, like Aveeno, Nivea, or Neutrogena, but the reviews I've read have been confusing. Does anyone have any experience with this?

This product works as a lightening agent through exfoliation i think. Some of my dark marks from past blemishes seem to slough off more quickly than usual. Not a MAJOR improvement, but noticeable. And it's not too harsh or drying at all while doing this. But best of all, this has also been totally fabulous under my JI mineral foundation! Although it might be a bit greasy when worn alone, under the JI it somehow helps me retain that dewy-glow look without the extra oilies. Love it, and with SPF 15 it can't be beat. Only problem is if you can't handle their sunscreen. But i'm blemish prone and it hasn't bothered me!</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

This is my second jar after a short break in usage. It is an excellent product. I would recommend it to anyone with dry, dull skin or combination skin. Not for anyone with oily skin.

My jar is almost gone and I haven't seen any results yet. I was hoping it would make my face look more radiant but I can honestly say it hasn't done anything. I won't be buying it again. Also, It is a bit heavy for daytime use.

I started using this product about 3 weeks ago and I love it! I've had 2 people already comment on how my face has a glow to it. I didn't believe them but I told them that I am trying a new product and they both said that it is working so to continue using it.

This product did even out my skin tone, but it also made it red and blotchy for about an hour after putting it on. I also found it too thick and greasy to wear during the day. For someone with less sensitive drier skin, it would probably be great.

I filled out a survey and won Avon's Luminosity cream, and it's EXCELLENT!!! My skin is a bit dry and unhealthy looking (due to a medication I took earlier). I look great and feel so much more confident! I thought that after being on medication, nothing could revive my skin, but this product is truly amazing! I use Avon Moisturizing cleanser, then apply Anew Luminosity to my face. This is one of those products I will definitely stock up on! Thank you Avon!

This product is wonderful! It's light, absorbs easily and does what it claims. My blotchiness was gone in about three weeks. The price is right too (and it goes on sale often). Avon has another winner here!

I tried this product after checking this board and I'm so glad I did. I have never tried anything that has given the results this had. My skins was very tired looking and now it looks very bright. WOW!

As soon as you put this product on your skin, it looks rosy, fresh and glowly! After a week discolorations begin to fade. I'm sure that continued use for a month would dramatically change my skin! And the price is great!!!

I have nothing but great things to say about AVONS LUMINOSITY facial cream. My face glows when I use this stuff! It's not that expensive either. I'm 27, so my skin isn't "OLD"...but I don't have that glow teens have. This cream works wonders for women in their late 20's and on.

Avon products are the best!! I just started using Clearly C, Luminosity, and Skintastic and have more products coming!! The difference in my skin is amazing - an after only a few days of use. You can't beat the money back guarantee and ordering from their internet site is extremely convenient. I usually receive my order within 3 days. All around, fabulous products, reasonable prices and convenient shopping....what more could you ask for??

Hey Kage_scup.. when you start working for Avon, let us know!! http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/552.gif

I think this sample represents a very positive recommendation. I did not see any awful reviews in my search.

Hey Cali! Thanks for the reviews! Great work!
It's official - I'm an Avon/mark Rep! (I learned that as an Avon rep, I have access to mark products as well! Neat!) I got signed up this morning - I got signed up this morning - boy have I missed being a Rep! (I sold it for a while before I got married, and then just got out of it because of busy-ness.)

Let me know if you ever need anything!

Wonderful! I'll be checking it out, Kages_cup. I am really impressed with Avon. I had no idea of the quality till I tried it. And the prices are great. TxTTYL

P.S. The luminosity looks like it's worth a try.

Thanks! I can always send you catalogues or whatnot.

Yeah, the Luminosity sounds good - but I'm afraid of anything with a lightening process. I heard it can diminish freckles and such, and I don't really want that. I just wanted a moisturizer that would make me glow, like the new Nivea Simply Glowing, or Aveeno's new moisturizers. I'm sure Luminosity does the trick, but I don't think that's what my skin is needing right now - I don't really have much in the areas of blemishes to fade.

Yeah please send me a catalogue. I'll email you my addy. I might buy stock in their lipglaze.Do they have anything comparable to MAC's pigment eye shadows?

Tx buddy-kins!
