So, what do you think of Isa Knox Anew LX Ultimate? Personally, I'm impressed! I'm also delighted that the products were made available to our online customers the day after they were launched. (Be sure to look at your online store and click on the scrolling banner.) In fact, if our customers signed up on the Wait List to learn about them at the launch, they knew about them at the same time we did. They can also tune in today at 4:00 ET (3:00 CST is the time for most of us) and join the party where we will be learning more about the products. That will be happening on the Avon USA Representatives Facebook page. This is YOUR opportunity to build your business to new heights because skin care is what you really need to be promoting if you want your business to grow. When you get loyal customers loving their Avon skin care products you will have repeat buyers.* Be the first Cloud Climber to let me know you have sold a product from the Isa Knox line and I'll have a special gift for you!

We have added no new Cloud Climbers to the team this campaign, but $0 sign-ups continue until the end of the year, so I expect we'll be getting a few more as the holiday season approaches. We have had two CCs reinstate their accounts, and I am always happy to see that occur.
I hope each of you has a fantastic Campaign 18! As always, let me know if there is anything I can do to help your business. Speaking of which, I still have 50 C18 brochures that I'm giving away if you can come to 108 Richard Brown Road, Harvest, AL to pick them up. Just tell me how many of the 50 you want and I'll put them on my porch with your name on them.
Avon Gold Ambassador
*During the launch Jeanine mentioned that this skin care line had been thoroughly tested except for sensitive skin. She said that most anti-aging products are not promoted as being for sensitive skin. However, if you look at your online store scrolling banner you will also see that we have an entire new product line specifically for sensitive skin - Physiogel. Avon has got every skin type covered, so be sure to let your customers who have told you they have sensitive skin know about these products.
Have all of you been reading your emails from Avon? I know there are several of them coming out right now and you may be falling behind due to your many obligations. I know that feeling all too well. However, if you can just skim over the latest ones it would be good for your business. Here are some of the main points:
There is a major skin care launch coming on August 4. It appears to be a daytime cream or cream duo that will be in the Anew line and possibly there will be more than one product. If you sign into your account you will see a banner about it. I know that when I met with a few top selling Avon Reps yesterday at least one of them seemed to be unaware of this launch.
Starting September 2, the time to process Returns is being reduced again and you should already be aware that there will no longer be one free shipping return shipment each month. Shipping costs will still be low, but not free. Therefore, it might be a good idea to hold your returns and only ship them to Avon once a month. Customers will have 45 days to return products to you for credit or exchange and you will have 60 days to return them to Avon, so just be sure you kept track of the amount of time from when you ordered the items. I don't know the details on when Avon begins the countdown for the 60 days, so I recommend counting from when the items were invoiced by Avon.
Free signups will continue until the end of the year, so keep pushing the opportunity. New Reps who qualify with a $60+ first order will get $10 credit toward their second order, free samples, and an A Box.
No more Fast Talk for orders! Most of you are turning in your orders online so this shouldn't affect too many, but one or two old school Cloud Climbers may be calling in orders. The Care Center Specialists will be available still but there will be a small fee for getting help from them in placing your order. If you have never placed on online order, be sure to watch the "Shortcut to Success" program on Avon U to learn how to do it.
What's New has already moved to online only (and I know that can be frustrating since it is not as easily read) and now invoices will only be available online. They can be downloaded and printed under Manage Orders/Invoicing. There are step-by-step instructions in the Invoicing Tool module on Avon U.

If your sales are up over last year and I haven't mentioned you here, please let me know. Sometimes the reports are challenging to pull from VIBE.
I hope you are having a great Campaign 17. Let me know if I can help you in any way.
Everyone is talking about "shields" these days, and Avon is excited to offer a new shield for your skin. This line of Balance and Soothe products introduced into our Moisture Therapy lineup is front page news this campaign! The Campaign 17 brochure is live on my website now if you need to look at the brochure there.
Here are some of the new items and best buys of the campaign:
Pgs. 4-7, NEW Moisture Therapy + Balance and Soothe products to give skin the utmost care with our advanced microbiome formulas with prebiotics and para-biotics. These three products are perfect for the customer who needs to restore their skin or maintain their skin with a protective layer. Try the Body Cream ($15), the Body Lotion ($20), or the Body Wash ($18) and get a FREE Feelin' Fresh Roll-On Anti-Perspirant Deodorant with your purchase.
Pgs. 11-13, Are brilliant neon colors your thing? We've got them! Try NEW Limited Edition Write Bright Eye Liner ($8.99), Limited Edition Electric Lash LOVE at 1st Lash Mascara ($9.99), or Limited Edition Neon Rules Lipstick ($14.99). We've even dressed up two of our Mini Hand Creams with neon colors ($1.49).
Pg. 14, The A Box is Orange Crush and chock full of Vitamin C. Only $10 with your $40 brochure purchase.
Pg. 24, NEW belif x VDL Glow Moist Fix & Mist ($38) is a weightless 2-in-1 setting spray that can be used prior to makeup for dewy, glowing skin and then to set and refresh makeup throughout the day.
Pg. 37, Wearing a mask in public but still wanting to sport beautifully tinted lips when you are able to remove it? Ink Tint in Tattoo Matte ($12) is the perfect solution. This long-lasting liquid lip stain drives down to a silky-soft matte finish.
Pg. 44, Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser is a great deal at $11 for a huge tube that will last a long time.
Pg. 49, NEW Jeju Aloe 99% Fresh Soothing Gel ($6.99) instantly hydrates and soothes dry, sensitive skin.
Pg. 66, Anew Hydra Fusion Daily Beauty Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen Lotion SPF50 ($18.99) is a long name for a highly recommended product with Avon's highest sunscreen protection. If you have got to be in the sun for an extended period, this is the one to get!
Pg. 73, Anew Clinical Line Eraser with Retinol Treatment ($26.49) for use under your moisturizer in the am/pm is an important product to add to your regimen if overall fine lines and wrinkles are your skin care concern. If you just want to target a few spots, such as around the lips and eyes, then Anew Clinical Line Eraser Targeted Treatment ($22.99) is the one for you.
Pg. 80, Get back to the basics with these three skin care items that have been in the Avon portfolio for years: Dramatic Firming Cream ($4.99), Banishing Cream ($4.99) and Nurtura Replenishing Cream ($4.99).
Pg. 100/101, With your gorgeous smile hidden behind a mask much of the time, the eyes need to really shine as we must smile with them, so how about putting a bit of extra effort into making them pop? Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quads ($6.29) are available in 10 shade selections or you can go all out with Glimmershadow Liquid Eyeshadow ($7.49) with Glitter or Shimmer finish in 9 shades.
Pgs. 112/113, Avon Flourish Honey Blossom Eau de Parfum (fresh and sweet) and Peony Rose Eau de Parfum (fresh and clean) are $20 each or, if you can't decide on one, opt for the Travel Spray for $6.99 and get one of each.
Pg. 175, NEW Cucina Essentials Dish Soap ($6.99) is a naturally derived formula with stain-removing citric acid and microbubbles. Available in two lovely fragrances - Lemon & Verbena and Garden Basil.
I'd better stop now. Have y'all noticed that all of our brochures are over 200 pages lately?!?! Whew! That used to happen only during the holiday season. So many products to choose from and many more coming. 💕
Is every Cloud Climber staying well? I sure hope so and I'm praying so. As you can see from the signature on this email, I have finally been demoted to Gold Ambassador due to team sales being down for a while. Avon let us keep our positions for months longer than they should have, but the grace period has obviously ended now. Ah well. I was only getting paid at the Gold Ambassador level anyway, so the only difference is in the title. With the great team I have, I have faith that I'll be a Bronze Leader again, or perhaps even go up to Silver Leader, which is about as high as my aspirations go. 🙂

Keep up the good work, Michele and Alicia!!
New Team Members: Congratulations to Leslie Clendenon for adding Zoe Landenberger of Dunlap, TN, to her team and to Margo Prytz for adding Arnella Hanna of Decatur, AL, and Jean Drouillard of Beverly Beach, FL, to her team. Jean was with Avon some time ago and Margo was on her team then, so when she decided to rejoin Avon, she became a member of Margo's team. Pretty nifty! 🙂 Welcome to the Cloud Climbers, Avon Ladies! I also want to make sure that I recognize both Leslie and Margo for being Star Promoters now.
If you have not yet signed up for Virtual Visionaries, I hope that you will do so soon. You will get enough goodies from Avon to cover the cost and I expect the virtual convention to be a lot of fun. Those of you who are working during the time of the live parts will still be able to view them later and all of us will be able to be among the first to introduce the newest products to our customers. And speaking of newest products, I have finally subscribed to the Meeting in a Box and I expect my first box to arrive soon. I'm thinking I'll do a FB Live on our group page with the materials that are sent to me, but my entire plan will not be formulated until I see what is coming.
That's enough for now. I hope each of you has a most excellent weekend. Let me know if there is any way I can help you with your business.
Avon has been offering the opportunity to begin a business to everyone at no cost for several months and that option is set to continue through the end of the summer. I don't know an exact date for it to end, as that is all the info we have from the corporate office. Even thought the economy is opening up and people can once again get out to shop in their favorite stores, many are still choosing to stay home as much as possible. I've been getting a lot of new online customers and sales, so I'm experiencing this first hand. With the free option you do not receive brochures that need to be delivered to your friends and family members. Instead, you are given a link to your personal web store so they can shop online.* Of course, you still have the option to order brochures to distribute if you so choose. Go ahead and go to my online store to see what you have been missing (including the amazing new Digital Brochure that was just launched!) and what you could be offering, then click the words "Become a Representative" in the upper left part of the screen to start your business today! **
Avon Bronze Leader
*Not interested in setting up your own FREE website for customers to shop at for the benefit of your pocketbook? Perhaps you need some essential items yourself. If so, feel free to shop at MY website for direct delivery to your home. Shipping is free on a $60 order.
**If you decide not to begin your business or place an order, you might want to go to my website anyway and enter the Sweepstakes you will see when you scroll down the page. Avon is giving away Bug Guard and BELIF skin care, along with our newest summer fragrance and some makeup items, and you could be a winner!
My Campaign 16 order will be turned in after 8:00 p.m. tomorrow (Monday). Here is a link to the regular brochure and here is a link to the digital brochure in case you want to have a little Avon interaction, try on a few shades of makeup, etc. Of course, if you choose direct delivery from Avon you will get free shipping on a $60+ order and can order any time.
Here are a few best buys that I spotted in Campaign 16:
Pg. 11, NEW Love at 1st Lash Waterproof Mascara is $9.99, and I see that the new sale price on Love at 1st Lash Mascara is also $9.99. If you purchase the Waterproof Mascara, you will want to go to Pg. 40 and order the NEW Waterproof Lip & Eye Makeup Remover for $8.
Pg. 12, NEW Orange Crush A Box is only $10 (a $36 value) with your $40 order. It's full of Anew Vitamin C products that have been a big hit with customers since their introduction.
Pg. 16/17, Limited Edition belif special-edition tumblers ($38) have the same full-size Aqua Bomb or Moisturizing Bomb sold in a jar but for a limited time they are in tube form. You'll also get a trial size of Aqua Bomb Jelly Cleanser, so it is like getting the tumbler and cleanser free!
Pg. 32, Ink Tint is a lightweight, long-lasting liquid lip stain in vivid colors that is available in Tattoo Matte (8 shades) or Serum Shine (4 shades) for $12 each.
NEW Tattoo Station Proof Brow Pomade comes with a dual-ended applicator for precision application. It's available in 6 shades @ $19 each.
Pg. 65, See pores vanish and tired skin re-energized with Vitale! The 4 items in this line are each $22.99.
Pg. 73, Anew Clinical AHA Refining Cream ($22.99) moisturizes and exfoliates while you sleep.
Pg. 78, Avon Crave Lip Gloss ($4.99) is great for the summer because you don't have to worry about it melting in the heat. The formula has Vitamin E to smooth and soften lips.
Pg. 82, Mattitude Soft Matte Liquid Lip ($8.99) is a weightless, non-drying formula that lasts for hours. A burst of vivid color with a feather-light feel and velvety soft matte finish.
Pg. 98, Avon Pro Flawless Makeup Applicator ($3.69) is just the thing you need for smooth application of your liquid foundation. Just wet the sponge and squeeze it out until slightly damp, put your liquid foundation on the back of your hand for a "palette" and use the large end for large areas of your face and the pointed end for the more detailed areas.
Pg. 107, Far Away Amalfi ($15.99) is only hear for a limited time, so don't miss it!
Pg. 166/167, Check out the Home Essentials and Cucina Essentials products for your kitchen and laundry room.
