Avon Smooth Minerals vs Bare Minerals

Do you remember when Bare Minerals was first introduced?  I do!  I remember seeing the "infomercial" that stated that the minerals in the powder foundation was good for your skin, especially if you had sensitive skin (which I do), it gave you a lightweight, sheer to full coverage that it would last for hours.  WOW!! That sounds like an AWESOME product!!

It was a cool concept but I felt it was really expensive and never tried it.  However, my sister did and LOVED it!!  She even bought several shades so that she could 'customize' the color to match her completion all year long.  To me that was too much work.  Back then and even to this day, I don't wear a lot of foundation.  So I just couldn't justify the cost of it . . . I don't remember how much it was . . . but back in those days . . . if it was $20, it was too expensive for me.  Now you can purchase it for around $29 and you can have it set up on AutoShip.

Here are the benefits for Bare Minerals:
  • Provides broad spectrum SPF 15 non-chemical, mineral-based sun protection
  • Promotes clearer, healthier looking skin over time
  • Buildable, sheer-to-full coverage
  • Naturally luminous finish
  • Lasts for up to 8 hours
  • Available in 30 true-to-you shades
Then many years later, Avon came out with their version of that same product.  It is called Smooth Minerals.  While it is similar to the Bare Minerals, it comes with a much smaller price tag.  The regular price is only $12.00 and is regularly on sale for $8.99.  Because of the lower price point, I decided to try this and LOVED it!!

What I loved best about it was in the summer time, my face doesn't feel like it's melting.  The foundation stays in place and I didn't even feel like I was wearing any foundation.  That's not to say that the Bare Minerals didn't do the same thing, I just know what this does because I tried it.  You can build up the coverage too.  So on light makeup days, I just put on one layer.  But when my face is more red, I can build it up until I get the coverage I need to cover up the redness. 

"Every single customer I have, who purchased Avon Smooth Minerals Foundation, 
told me that they prefer it over the Bare Minerals Foundation.  And not only because 
of the price point . . . they actually like the product better!" 
~ Karen Whitney, Avon Representative

HOW TO shop my eStore



You have a FEW ways to shop:
#1 - This is the EASIEST way to shop my eStore: Click on SHOP BROCHURE - here you can view the entire brochure as if you had it in your hot little hands. You can also view all of the sales flyers, outlet flyers, Mark Magalog and Home Living Magalog.
#2 - This is the HARDEST way to shop. BUT, if you want to check prices from previous campaigns, you should use this option. If you know the product number or want to check for the best available price, click on SHOP BROCHURE, look at the very top right of the page and click on PRODUCT #. This will open an order form. There is a drop down box for the current campaign and 2 back campaigns. Enter the item number 3 times . . . one for each campaign. . . add them to your CART. Then check your CART/BAG for the prices. REMOVE the ones you don't want and keep the one that has the best price. WATCH OUT tho . . . if something in the brochure says "Buy 2 for $28" of "Buy one Get one Half Off" or another special, the BAG may show each one as the regular price until you go thru the checkout process. If you need help with this or want me to look up the product in a previous campaign to be sure what the special is, PLEASE CALL ME. I keep old books for a limited time and I can make sure you are getting the correct product at the correct price.
#3 - This is the LOOK AROUND way to shop.  It is a great way to learn more about Avon, it's Causes, how to use the products and find tools that will help you pick the perfect product for you.
