Firming Moisturizer with DMAE, Alpha Lipoic and C-Ester
unwanted fragrance added
I have been buying this product for several years and was very satisfied but now my last order I received had a lavender fragrance added to it. It is a strong odor and I do not buy items for my skin with any kind of fragrance to it. I am very disappointed that this was added to this product. There are many people that do not like fragrances do to being unhealthy for you. People need to understand that some fragrances are unhealthy and should not be used just because it smells good to you.

Not for sensitive skin
I have used products in the past that has the same ingredients as this one, but my skin did not do well with this one. Also, the smell of this cream was terrible; I don't know maybe I received a bad jar where an ingredient went bad.

My wife has been using this cream for about 2 years and this is the one she likes the best. I could notice the difference in her younger appearance and other people started complementing her, even our kids. I started using this cream after seeing what it was doing for her. I just placed an order for a back up today, by the way we are both in our early 70's.

Started to work after started glycolic regimen
I've had this one for quite some time and wasn't exactly sure it was working so I shelved it. About a month ago I started a glycolic regimen (face wash, toner and 10% cream), and about 2 weeks in I started trying some of my anti-aging creams that seemed fairly ineffective prior to glycolic use and WOW was this one a pleasant surprise to try again! My skin looked great after a couple of uses alongside glycolic treatment. This does smell kind of bad though, but for the nice results I'm willing to smell it a couple of times a week, so is the hubs! :)

Be very careful.........
I've only used this product 4 times and I've had a very bad reaction to it. I called Swanson and told them about it but they hadn't had any other complaints like mine. I looked it up online and other websites had people writing in with the same problem as mine: I woke up to a red and swollen face, i look like a lobster! It burns and my skin feels "hard", not good. I think it's the ALA because I've used DMAE and Vit C in other products and had no bad reaction.....Swanson is a wonderful company and I've bought so many wonderful things from them and if I'm not happy (like this time) there's never a problem returning anything. Love them, just NOT this product.......be careful using this and DO THE SKIN PATCH! I should have :(

natural face cream!
This product is a great value! I've seen this at a local health food store for twice as much. This product is great because the ingredients are natural unlike some other face products on the market. It works too!

Happy with product
This is a great moisturizer! I've been using it as my daily morning moisturizer for about 6 months. At first I was slightly put off by the smell of the product, but after a week got used to it. My 55 year old skin feels silky smooth and fine lines are less apparent. After putting on, my skin tingles just slightly and has a tightening feel (quite pleasant) for a few minutes. I do use a BB cream with SPF over the product since it has no sunscreen. It's not heavy nor greasy, just perfect for me! I will continue to reorder and use, probably forever.

I have used this cream before but ran out. I re-ordered it and have been using it for one week now. I like that it's absorbs quickly and leaves no oily residue. It leaves my skin look velvety. Already noticed reduced pore size and better skin tone. The last time I used it for 6 weeks and noticed a reduction in fine line and wrinkle prominence. This cream really works better compared to creams 3-4 times the price. The added bonus is that it's natural. I'm really impressed. ( My 1st review ever!)

Good for the price
This is a easily absorbed product
I like the feel non greasy
I see little signs it works but then again I don't use it every day like I should

Too Greasy for me
I have given this product to my daughter who has very dry skin. My skin is oily and breaks out from too much oil, which was the problem I had with this product. My daughter loves it, for her very dry skin.

may not be good for sensitive skin
I believe this is a good product, however, with my sensitive skin it caused a skin breakout. I had to discontinue using it.

Good Mix of Desired Ingredients
Smooth and seemingly effective after many moths of use.

DMAE Alpha Lipoic C Ester Creme
MMMMMMM this feels great. And after almost a month using it I swear i can see the difference on my neck and chest. Smells nice too. Someone asked me the other day if I had some "work done" and I have not thank you! Maybe its this cream! give it a try...it feels great anyway.

Excellent product - unbelievable price
I have gone through 2 jars of this cream in the last year. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this cream. I just started using it with a serum - DMAE Firming Fluid during the day and Hyaluronic Acid serum at night. I have experienced outstanding results.

I had used a prominent skin doctor's very expensive similar product at a much higher price -- this is just as effective and a lot cheaper. The first time I used it I found the smell slightly off putting. However, each subsequent time I purchased it, the smell improved. In fact this last one I am now using has a lavender smell. The product goes on easily and has definitely improved the appearance of my skin. I shall continue to buy this from Swanson as I do buy all of my vitamins and supplements.

Been using this cream for about a month ,my skin looks great!!!! Works better than anything I've tried.Will reorder this product.Luv it, really works!!

I like this cream, the odor of the cream is fresh and it feels a little tingly after you apply it. I like the jar because you get to use all the cream from the bottom of the jar. As with some creams in tubs or pumps you can never get to the bottom of it. I can see after a month or so of use that the wrinkles seem a little more fine and the skin is soft! Would definitely buy this cream again....

This cream gives you the results it claims to.
Reasonable priced for a great product.
Be sure to use it for a good time period to see that it works.

This Face Cream is a Keeper
I don't believe there's a finer face cream anywhere. I've used expensive face creams for years but have settled on this one as one to stay with. I especially like that it's in a jar and you can use all of it. I can feel and see the difference in my skin.

I don't use this product for my face, however, I do use it for my neck and it leaves it soft and smooth. It does tingle a little bit, but it's not overpowering and that little jar has gone a long way.

Not worth it, don't buy it
I purchased this item for my mom - it looked promising from the item's description.
It's not an anti-aging/wrinkle product it's just a cream/moisturizer.
I am about to re-purchase a different item she tried before that she does recommend - Wrinkle Cream With DMAE & CoQ10.
I'd say give them both a try and see the results for yourself, since each individual reacts differently.
Have a wrinkle free day!

please read my reviews of Derma E Cleaner & Toner, as I use the products together; I suspect only this way you can get the most of them. This cream is perfect as it's easy to apply, leaves your skin soft and nurtured. But I do have an objection to it and it is regarding it's smell. It's very unpleasant and hard to get used to. I didn't reject this moisturiser this time as it's exellent in all other questions, but I'll think twice if I'll purchase it next time.

I watch Dr. Oz almost every day. He recomended DMAE Capsules for anti aging. When I ordered them, I noticed there was cream as well. I thought it's worth trying. Well I am glad I did. I love the cream, it is not greasy and feels refreshing after cleansing your face for the night. I am 80 years old, and hey ladies it works.

I have noticed results and will buy agian.

I've been using Derma E for a few months now, and in that time I've turned 50. The landmark birthday had me taking a closer than usual look at myself in the mirror, and I started to notice a change in the fine lines around my eyes especially. Then my next door neighbor couldn't stop staring at me, and finally said "your skin looks so young!" and I knew it wasn't just my imagination. I have always used lotions and taken good care of my skin, but I believe this really is making a true difference.
