I recently noticed that my face and neck looked kinda 'droopy' and immediately knew this was a sign of aging. I decided to try a product from my favorite Avon Solutions Skincare line and ordered the 'Dramatic Firming Cream'.

AvonSolutions is not one of their 'top of the line' skincare lines, but it is what I love a bout Avon, been around long and keeps going strong! I've been using Avon since I was a kid (no exaggeration) and I can still trust them to stand behind their products with quality and a money back guarantee. So I'm never afraid to try a new or an older product from Avon,

After using the product for two weeks my friend Jaki, whom I see at least twice every week stated, "You look like you've lost weight, and it shows in your face".

Of course, I was estatic! I ordered two more jars and am very pleased in how it has leaves my face and neck skin looking younger and tighter!

At the top of my 'Favs and gotta have' list!

I still remember the first time I purchased Avon's Dramatic Firming Cream. I had just turned 40 and felt I needed a little extra help with my facial skin. A friend sold Avon and I was pleased to give the product a try.

Product Claims

Avon claims that the combination of vitamin E, carrot, apricot and arnica oil "improves elasticity and resilience, for noticeably firmer, toned, supple skin in just 4 weeks". What middle aged woman wouldn't want that? I sure did!

I'll tell you up front that I was very displeased with the product and it didn't begin to live up to claims, even after using it until the entire jar was empty.

On the plus side, it has a nice consistency and is a pleasure to apply. I have very dry skin, especially in the T-Zone, and this cream did work well as a moisturizer, and it absorbed very well into my skin without any oily or greasy feeling.

I have a sensitive nose and I can't say I was thrilled with the scent of this cream, but I've smelled worse. The bottom line is I purchased it to improve my aging skin, and it didn't like up to the claims made by Avon. It isn't expensive and Avon does have a satisfaction guarantee, however I didn't return the cream because it did make a good facial moisturizer.

Absorption
Absorbs easily and readily without any oily feeling

Doesn't Clog Pores
I didn't have any issues with clogged pores or acne when using this cream

Effectiveness
It simply did not live up to the claims Avon made. I use it as a moisturizer but not as an anti-aging cream.

This does not absorb and it definitely clogged my pores.

By 

from lakeland, florida

Comments about Avon Dramatic Firming Cream:

This cream was terrible to my skin. It clogged my pores and it did not absorb at all. It was supposed to firm the skin on my face and make it look younger, but instead it felt as though it was just sitting on the surface of my skin. It felt kind of greasy and oily and my pores felt kind of gross. I did not like cream at all. I bought it at a good price from my neighbor who is an Avon representative, but I wish I had tried something different. My skin started to break out after using this cream for a week. I kept at it for about a month before I just gave the cream to someone else. I am not a fan and it is not a cream that I could recommend to anyone. It did not work at all.

Absorption
This cream absorbed very poorly. I felt like it sat on the surface like an oil slick.

Doesn't Clog Pores
This cream definitely clogs pores. It clogged my pores worse than any other cream I have used before. I broke out from it clogging my pores so badly.

Wonderful moisturizer but no firming!

By 

from Eastlake, OH

Comments about Avon Dramatic Firming Cream:

My co-worker recently brought in a catalog and I was so pleased to see that they had a sale on their facial creams and moisturizers. This past winter was very rough on my skin and I wanted to buy some products to replace the moisture but would not clog my pores as the weather began to warm. I have always trusted Avon's quality and I am pleased to say that this moisturizer is great. I used it all around my eyes and on my cheeks and my skin felt softer and looked less flaky. Now, I did not notice any firming of my under-eye area but it certainly was smoother and more moisturized. Absolutely no irritation or redness and even with the increase in temperatures my skin did not seem oily or clogged. I also used this on my neck and chest area. Wonderful results. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has sensitive skin and is looking for moisture without a heavy feeling.

Absorption
I mainly used this as a night cream. I felt that it went into my pores without clogging them. By morning my skin felt softer and smoother.

Doesn't Clog Pores
Because I have such dry skin, I have always used heavier moisturizers to hemp my skin. This lightweight formula hydrated my skin but did not leave it feeling heavy or mask-like.

Effectiveness
As a firming cream, I did not see as great or results. However, its a phenomenal moisturizer. My sensitive skin had no reaction to this cream.

Not impressed with this product

By 

from USA

Comments about Avon Dramatic Firming Cream:

Avon's Dramatic Firming Cream was not that dramatic and was not for me at all. I had high hopes for this product. I have used other Avon products and been pleased with them. This firming cream was a HUGE disappointment. I don't know quite how to describe it but after using it, I noticed white threat like particles on my skin - they looked like skin peeling after a sunburn. I actually thought it was my skin coming off at first. Then I realized it was not my skin, it was the product coming off. It did not really absorb into my skin -it appeared to absorb into but skin but in actuality it coated my skin then peeled off. I wondered if this was due to the product I used to wash my face, so I tried it again. I used another cleaner, completely washed the product off my face, dried my face and applied the Avon dramatic firming cream again and again after about 15 minutes, I noticed it was coming off my face. So needless to say in the trash it went.

Absorption
This cream did not absorb into my face at all. It actually just kind of coated my skin and then came off.

Doesn't Clog Pores
I did not experience any clogged pores while using this product.

Effectiveness
Avon's Dramatic Firming cream did not work at all for me.

Avon Solutions Dramatic Firming Cream is fantastic

By 

from Alton, IL

Comments about Avon Dramatic Firming Cream:

Avon Solutions Dramatic Friming Cream 1.7fl oz size has done a wonderful job on making my skin feel fresher, more moisturized and smooth over the past month. I ue a very small amt and the product has lasted a long time. Bear in mind a moisturizer of this quality can e use all over the body not just on the face. I figure since it is good for the face is good for other body areas that need moisture - hands, elbows, knees, feet. The light fragrance is not a problem even for my snsitv skin. Even others say my skin looks firmer.Maybe it is due to the "Avon Daily Skin Allownace of nutrients and supplements" The ingredient list speaks of Pomegranate, Vitamin E ad Vitamin A. According to the label it is allergy-tested and dermatologist tested. The label suggests that to use, it is best to smooth over a cleansed face and throat inan upward and outward motion. What I do is dot my fiinger with the prodcut and dot in on each region of my face and throat. From there I follow the upward/outward porcess. In conlusion, I hve found this to be a great product.

Avon Dramatic Firming Cream is the best product in this catagory

By 

from Iron Mountain, MI

Comments about Avon Dramatic Firming Cream:

Avon Dramatic Firming Cream is the best product in its class.  I have tried many different products for firming, but this one worked within 5 days.  I was able to see visible results, and so did my husband and friends.  I would highly recommend this product for anyone, especially between the age 50 to 60 when the skin starts to do the sagging thing.  This cream will stop sagging and drooping.

Works great as a moisturizer!

By 

from West Covina, CA

Comments about Avon Dramatic Firming Cream:

I haven't noticed any "dramatic firming," but this works as a great moisturizer. It feels a little greasy when you first apply it, but after a few seconds it feels great! It feel lightweight, but it doesn't do it's job of firming. Maybe it just takes a while to show results. I might buy this product again, because it is so hard for me to find a good moisturizer that doesn't make my face really oily. It also has a good price.

Avon Dramatic Firming Cream is a great value.

By 

from Roscommon, MI

Comments about Avon Dramatic Firming Cream:

Avon Dramatic Firming Cream is surprisingly effective for such an affordable price. Shopping online for avon products is easy plus free shipping is included if you pick a local sales rep from the list they will show you. Avon has sales often, so that is a good way to stock up. This particualr cream is something I use on the days I do not use the pricier Perricone products. It is very moisturizing for a firming cream; I use it primarily at night with anti-aging serums. I notice an immediate brightening all over my face when I use this, as well as a slight firming around my jaw line and under my eyes. It contains several oils and vitamins. When first applied it is not greasy at all, it is one of those creams that takes awhile before it starts to appear shiny. But I feel using it at night is helpful, so for the low price and glowiness I get, I am satisfied with this line of skin care. I will purchase it again when I am out.
