The Test of Time


As the old saying goes, time is money, and money is time.  And generally it’s true: just like money, time is one of our most valuable commodities. Beyond the fiscal opportunities, time fixes just about any problem you have. Emotionally, it’s the single best remedy for a break-up.  And just imagine what it would be like if you had an extra day to finish that important project at work.

But for women, time may actually be our ultimate enemy. As we age, the collagen in our faces breaks down, pollutants in the air become more destructive than ever, and gravity takes its toll. And since no one wants to waste their precious time in a spa every week, Avon has created an at-home, anti-aging skin regime that yields the results of a professional facial.  The Avon research team spent five years of their precious time developing and testing these products so you don’t have to waste yours getting facials. The result is a skincare line that exfoliates, resurfaces, deep-cleans, tightens pores, and reinforces skin cell bonds to create smoother skin.

I took the Anew Rejuvenate Night Revitalizing Cream and the Anew Rejuvenate Flash Facial Revitalizing Concentrate home to try out. Avon says that it takes seven days to notice a difference and two weeks for skin to appear dramatically younger. I guess, as with everything, time will tell.

Anew Rejuvenate Night Revitalizing Cream, $32, Anew Rejuvenate Flash Facial Revitalizing Concentrate, $48, both available at
