I was worried about buying this, but was on sale at K-mart for $6.99. When I got there-several were on clearance for $1.99.I am soooo glad I bought some.This stuff is great!! Put it on and lasts almost all day! Applied this morning, went to Chuck E Cheese, ate breadsticks, an ice cream sandwich, gave out a few kisses to hubby, and it still looked like I just put it on. Have not had a drying problem, but I've used lip treaments at night for years(maybe that has helped).Told my friends and they went to buy. My new HG of lipsticks :)

This smells sooooo good. I stocked up buying 2 stores out at the recent sales.Can be strong at first, but turns into a wonderful soft smell.I swear this stuff puts me in a better mood after using it.

What a great mask!! Goes on easily and dries quickly. I leave on about 30 min. and can peel off in one big piece.Removes all my blackheads.Leaves my skin softer than anything else I have used. The best I have found and the SUPER cheap price makes it even better. For a couple bucks it's a must try-you'll love it.

Recently purchased this and so far,so good. Does not irritate my skin, but seems kinda thin.Have used cheaper that I like just as well. Will update after using longer.
Great for daily use. Not a heavy conditioner at all. I usually leave on for 10 min. or so.Leaves my hair very soft and tangle free.
I like this for around my period has always worked wonderfully. My son has recently started using it as well and seems to be helping his teenage acne. Not to harsh, but makes my face squeaky clean.

I do not really like this toner. It takes forever to "sink" in, and leaves my face feeling greasy. Have not seen any improvements, but nothing bad from it either.

I LOVE Avon (read my other reviews), but this has done nothing for my eyes.I just purchased the new Clinical eye cream and hope it will work as it is supposed to. Will not buy this again.
I found this about a year ago and has become my HG mascara. Wear it all the time and does not flake, run, smudge. Even held up in the heat of the Bahamas. I have perm. eyeliner and usually just a couple coats of this and my eyes look great.

I use this on alternating nights with the facial peel for a month. My skin is MUCH , clearer, tighter, and the color is better. It's a little harsh, but has given me the results I wanted, so will keep using. Can find it dirt cheap on ebay.
Treatments -Avon - ANEW Clinical 2-Step Facial Peel

I have noticed some changes in my skin after a month of using this. It kind of stings at first for about 10 seconds, but not bad at all. My only problem is the packaging. The pads started drying out after a couple weeks. For the price Avon charges (thank goodness for ebay) you would think they would stay moist. Will continue to use, though.
I find myself reaching for this instead of my more expensive, "better" toner. I like the smell and the tingle. Just makes my face feel super clean.
Wonderful mask and so cheap- I think it was $3 at the Dolar store. I leave on for at least an hour once a week and my skin is so much clearer. Has not caused any breakouts or dryness. I wish I had found this long ago.

Have been using for years around that time of the month. When I forget I get the breakouts. My tube lasts forever since I only use it a few nights a month. Not really a smell to it, but takes a few min. to dry. I do not use a moisturizer over it and have not had a problem with it drying my face, but since I do not use nightly for long, can not say what it would do with constant use. Another of my must haves.

This works. There is not tingling or burning like I've had with some others on dry, cracked skin.I've got my husband and brother in law using now. Can not beat the price and on sale alot making it even cheaper.Really great in the winter on my feet, too. Been using for years.
