There never seems to be a Beauty Supply category in any of these polls. Although the Avon Beauty Center has award winning skin care products, make-up and perfume, we have so much more! We have a line of men's products. We have items for children such as Disney, Hello Kitty and hand-made doll clothes. We also have the WoodWick candle line which make great gifts! There is a large selection of glycerin soap as well as pashminas, jewelry and a new line called Beyond a Bag - great travel items designed by an airline attendant. Definitely worth checking out.
