Avon Anew AHA Refining Cream

I’m happy to report that a good AHA cream doesn’t have to cost a lot, and nor does it have to leave your skin super dry.  My latest find is Avon’s Anew AHA Refining Cream.  It’s available online for $32, and has a super thick, almost greasy texture, but also has glycolic acid in it […]
