My Last Ever Avon Order

As of Wednesday this past week Avon Australia no longer exists. It has closed it's doors permanently. Apparently it was no longer making a profit and the powers that be decided that Avon will no longer be sold in Australia and New Zealand.

I was very saddened by this. I had been an Avon rep for almost 16 years. Next month would have been my 16th anniversary. My Mum was a rep for 15 years before I joined. In fact she was a rep right up until the day she passed away.

These items were from my very last order. For representatives only. Items were heavily discounted. I guess they didn't want to send products over to the US or wherever they were going to send them.

I bought myself a pretty ring watch. Mark thinks it's gawdy but I like it.
The others stuff below, well I couldn't pass up buying some moisturisers. They are pretty good ones and very gentle on my psoriasis. 

Now I need to find replacement deodorants. I've only used Avon ones for the past 30 years. At least I have a stock pile which should last a couple of years, hopefully. I am sure that by then I would have found my 'new' selection.

It's the end of an era. I have many fond memories of the products from over the years. There have been a few favourites that's for sure. Time to look for some new favourites now.
