Queen Helene Cleansing Cream
Glad I Decided To Try It
When I first looked into getting this product I looked mainly at reviews and the product details. i decided to pick this up one day at Sally's just to try it due to the fact it was inexpensive and a lot of people have raved about this product. All I can say is I'm glad I convinced myself to buy this product! I love this product for its smooth texture and it's light clean scent that many other products don't have. It also is very gentle on my sensitive acne prone skin. It really works to improve skin not only the acne, but for moisture as well. Which is why I think many people think it is greasy in the end, but also it depends on how much you need to use vs. how much you actually use. My only compliant is that it is not easy to rinse off, but I just use my wash cloth to get it off and my skin is left feeling clean, moisturized, and fresh. Thanks Queen Helene for a product that does not make my acne worse or more dry. Will definitely buy again.

Outstanding cream cleanser
Never again will I buy other cold creams - this is top notch! Queen Helene Cleansing Cream removes all makeup -even heavy theater makeup- with one application! It's wonderful for eye makeup remover, and for dissolving high protection sunscreens. This cleanser is thick and creamy, yet somehow it doesn't leave the greasy residue other cold creams leave behind. This has a light, clean scent, and it's incredibly gentle. Sometimes removing tough makeup can make skin sting, but this cleanser is soothing in addition to being thorough. I love this and I think it's one of the skin care bargains around.

A Lovely Cleaner
The Queen Helene cleansing cream caught my eye after I tried to the Retinol cleaner, which was almost too strong for my skin and did not always remove my makeup, as promised.
I saw this and thought, "why not?" for the price. I'm very pleased with this purchase, and I will continue to purchase this cleansing cream. I have severe acne, so much I've been on Accutane and looked like a burn victim from cysts, and although those days are gone, my acne is still ridiculous especially along my chin and neck area. This cleaner is very gentle, has a decent smell, but as it says, it actually does take away the impurities including makeup and dead skin.
It does not necessarily cure acne, it just cleans your face and set your face either for a moisturizer or an astringent, based product.
Here's a little tip to anyone fighting acne and having some issues due to sensitivity, redness, etc. try this cleansing cream and then buy the Dollar General Cleaning Astringent, apply after washing your face, then apply a moisturizer of your choice (I use the Retinol Anti-Aging SPF day moisturizer) and your acne will clear up or decrease. It's a better formula than cleansers from the best in the industry!

Really worth the Money
I bought this a couple of days again and already love the product!! It is compare to the Pond cold cream but you get a bigger amount of product for the same price. I love my Pond so I will continue to buy it but I am very very happy with this product and will buy this again!! I use this day and night. During the day, I use the cleansing cream to give me a moisturizing cleaning (use a washcloth to remove or you will have a difficult time getting the product off). I do this before my makeup route and my makeup seems to glide more evening due to a well moisturize face. This will give you a light dewy look so if you like more of a matte finish; do not do this in the morning. I have combination skin and in my mid 30's. At night, this is an outstanding makeup remover and again a skin softener! I also use this as a duel cleanser with the mint julep facial scrub. I first place the cleansing cream to remove the makeup. Leaving the cream on, I use a little of the mint julep facial scrub to give me a mild to medium exfoliate facial. The result. Smooth, soft, clean skin without the over drying feeling. A must buy products!!! Skip the exfoliate if you have very sensitive skin.
