I only have the moisturizer which i recieved in a swap. So i will be doing my review only on that. I loved it. It really clears up my skin without drying. And also leaves a nice glow. Not only does it clear my complexion up it also improves it by kind of fading old scars and red marks. I also noticed that after I stopped using it for a week my skin started breaking out again due to stress. I defenitely would love to try the other products in the line. And would love to buy the whole system. I can just imagine the results.
Lotions/ Creams -Queen Helene - Cocoa Butter Hand and Body Lotion
coldan0547 8/19/2006 5:06:00 PM
I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this lotion. I first picked up this huge 32 oz bottle of lotion at wal-mart because I'm pretty cheap and this was only two bucks for a huge bottle. Let me say this again the bottle is HUGE. I also wanted a cocoa butter lotion. I smelled all the lotions and had to agree that they all smelled disgusting like burnt something , but this one was such a great smell. I went home and usesd this. The texture is creamy but a tad runny. Just a tad. But i like that, it's more water based I can tell. After I massaged it in my skin felt super soft and supple, but not greasy at all. Very nice. Just like baby skin. It felt overrall very healthy. AFter I went through the bottle I was kinda of tired of cocoa butter smells and wanted something flowery so I went lotion shopping again. I picked up some other stuff. wen t through that bought some other stuff. Yesterday I realized I needed lotion again. My skin has been getting very very dry the past couple of days and I needed something that actually worked. And i remembered this great lotion. I can't believe I was switching and going back between lines/brands/and products for almost a year now. How could I turn my back on my dear queen Helene after all she's done. And how could I now realize that this was always my HG moisurizer?!!! Well I realized my simple mistakes and picked up a bottle of the HUGE 32 oz original cocoa butter hand and body lotion and also a 32 oz bottle of the cocoa and mango body lotion for more of a fruity scent for everyday use. that's 64 ounces of the overral best lotion for four bucks!! I went home yesterday after picking these up and applied the original. Taking in the smell that brought back great memories of incredibly healthy and smooth skin that I once had. I will never ever part from my Queen Helene cocoa butter hand and body lotion. never ever.
STinks!!! it literally made me want to vomit. especially when i couldn't rinse it off. do not buy. smells horrbible.
More like a basic conditionor. there's the reason why you can use it everyday. Very overrated. Use Garnier Fructic's instead. Not worth the little money it costs.
this is one of my favorite lip glosses ive ever tried. I bought this at K-mart for a dollar. I love the sweet sugary honey smell. the consistency is great. And the color is the best in the Honey Kiss line. It's universally flattering, and goes along great with your natural lip color! I just wish this had a brush applicator. I would so buy again, I already have!
Eye Makeup Remover -Rimmel - Gentle Eye Make Up Remover

this stuff sucked, consistency is that of water literally. You can't get it to remove anything because of this, even on a cotton ball. Never buying again. huge waste.Good thing i got this for a dollar.
Shampoo -Avon - Naturals Energizing Pink Grapefruit and Rose Shampoo
coldan0547 8/2/2006 10:56:00 PM
I love this shampoo. Cheap and effective. Has to be one of the best smelling shampoos ever, if not the best! Great great great great great great smell!! Good job avon! My mom bought this with the matching conditioner. I just couldn't help but sneaking behind her back and using it. She didn't want me to use it probably cause it smells so good. I took one lipstick off because though it does clean well, smells good, and leaves hair in decent condition, it could have better conditiong agents. But overall a great shampoo, not the best, but i would surely buy again. This stuff is a great everyday shampoo that will have your hair smelling good all day!! Must buy.
Good for removing makeup, but other than that it's not that great for oily skin like stated. Smells pretty bad too.
Masks -Avon - Tea Tree and Grapefruit deep pore peel off
coldan0547 8/2/2006 10:49:00 PM
An effective mask, and cheap, $1.99! Left my skin feeling tight, smooth,soft, supple, and clean. Not too fond of the smell. Smells kind of like rotting fruit, a bit bitter. But others don't really agree. bUt the smell was tolerable for the great effects. I don't think i would buy again, considering there are better masks out there for reasonable prices too.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Sensitive Skin Solutions Oily Skin Cleanser
coldan0547 8/2/2006 10:19:00 PM
I liked this product. It smells great and does take away excess oil. I don't have sensitive skin. I bought this because i saw it at my local dollar store, and for a dollor it was worth it too see if it would rid my face of excess oil, and it did. It was also very gentle and left my face soft and supple. But this is not for someone fighting acne or blemishes, so do not use and become discouraged. Otherwise if you simply need to battle oiliness this is a great product!
Toners -Avon - Clearskin Purifying Blackhead Clearing Formula
coldan0547 8/2/2006 10:07:00 PM
I had a terrible experience with this product. I had a relatively small pimple on my fore head and decided to clean and dry it up with this. The product does have almost a large portion of alchohol, the first ingredient listed before water! Well anyways i tried drying up my pimple but was left with a huge quarter sized patch of dry white flaking skin on my head. Very noticable. I found this product made my skin far much worse. I started with a slight pimple and my skin began breaking out too!. there are plenty more effective AND gentle products. It also leaves a greasy film on your face.The packaging also sucked. A large opening at the top. I remember mine spilled everywhere while i tried to dampen a cotton ball.Do not use, very harsh will cause more damage and leave you with another skin problem to deal with, dry skin.
I smelled the sample from the brochure, did not like at all!. Chocalate, florals, and woodsy smells are not a good combo. Smells like rotting fruit.
definetly an old lady scent! Review can be summed up all in all by : OLD LADY SMELL. do not listen to other reviews, simply stated this is an old lady smell, the official and original old lady smell. You know that kinda of weird stale, dusty, smell mixed with potpourri and soap, that you encounter everytime you step into a grandmother's house. TRusT ME DO NOT BUY!!!. Cheap smelling and generic. You will turn into a steriotypical smelling person. If you like this smell, time to turn a new leaf!
I love this product! It really does leave my skin with a radiance and glowing appearance. Not only that the saliclyic acid is a plus for my oily skin that has a tendency to break out. It's effective while gentle. The beads are kinda of bothersome, since there are very few but they still do a mild job of exfoliating which i like. I liked the creamy almost, moisturizing texture. That definetly left my sking soft and supple ,while feeling very clean. It did definitly improve my face's appearance of glow. While it may not be that effective in clearing EXISTING acne, especially compared to the scrub, i do have faith that it controlled and prevented future breakouts. All in all, it offers a perfect balance of medication and moisturization for the overall glow. A great break from the harshness of the scrub.
I saw a 1/3 filled container of this at a yard sale for ten cents, so i decided this would be a great oppurtunity to try it. This is why i gave it the price rating of a 1. I went home and found out that I love this product!. I have acne prone skin, and this left my skin feeling tight and super clean, while at the same time it left me with glowing and soft skin. I definetly recommend this to someone with oily or acne prone skin. DO NOT USE IF YOU HAVE SENSITIVE OR DRY SKIN!! i love that all you have to do is add water so it lasts a really long time and goes a long way. You also control how much you need and the consistency. You can add just a little water to form a thicker richer paste when you need it, or more water for a thinner watery form, maybe for a quick cleanser. Another reason i like the powder form is that you can sprinkly a little into your daily cleanser for an added complexion booster. And the tingling sensation, combined with the minty smell lets you know it's working. I feel this product deserves a five, but i took off a lipstick for the packaging. I really didn't like that twist and shake top.(very much like a parmesan cheese dispenser). It requires alot of shaking towards the middle/end of the product and then the product ends up flying everywhere. By the time you dispense enough product, you get very fed up with the repeated shaking. But all in all if you have problems with acne/ oiliness i highly recommend this product. It will dry up existing pimples/blemishes. And will do a great job of preventing them if you sprinkle a little into your hand and mix with your daily cleanser! But do not use if you have sensitive, or dry skin.
