Going for gold with Avon Anew Ultimate Age Repair Elixir

I'm holding Avon's Anew Ultimate Age Repair Elixir and feeling like I must be holding something special. Why? Not because it got an Allure mag Breakthrough Award. That's always nice, but no, it's the gold packaging.

Avon Anew Ultimate Age Repair Elixir oozes of preciousness as it sits in a golden inner vial encased by a clear outer mini-vase. There's something both 50's retro-glam and hi-tech about this Anew. I just washed my face, so it's now a good time to give Avon Anew Ultimate Age Repair Elixir a try...here's my first impression:

The information I have on Avon Anew Ultimate Age Repair Elixir tells me that it should "instantly make the skin on my face, neck and under chin feel firmer." Apparently it's Anew Ultimate Age Repair Elixir's "maximum level of Pro-Sirtuin TX Technology" that makes it so.

Avon Anew Ultimate Age Repair Elixir is a serum whose color is much like a foundation for light skin hues with a bit of a yellow undertone. And Anew Ultimate Age Repair Elixir doesn't feel like some watery serum--it glides on with a bit more richness than expected. The hi-tech pump of Avon Anew Ultimate Age Repair Elixir remains clear of product residue (aka "gunk") after each pump which is breakthrough enough for me.

I notice that Avon Anew Ultimate Age Repair Elixir does seem to tighten things slightly upon application. But it definitely dries with minimal hydration--not a bad thing as Avon has already forewarned me to apply moisturizer after Anew Age Repair Elixir. With Anew Age Repair Elixir, I'm supposed to see more elastic skin in 3 days...and fewer lines and wrinkles in 2 weeks. We'll see.

QUICK TAKE: Avon Anew Ultimate Age Repair Elixir certainly looks gold-standard and it does have a slight tightening effect upon application. It definitely requires a moisturizer though and hard to say what the long-term of it will be.
