I love this cream. It feels really good on my skin and really makes it clear and nice. I like the jar of it better than the pump bottle because with the pump bottle there is always some left behind that you can't get out. As far as the jar being unclean to use, I hope not, because you're only as clean as the hands you use! If you put anything on your face with dirty hands, whether from a jar or pump bottle, you're making it unsanitary and dirty. Anyway, I like this product better than any other cream or lotion I've used for my face. I purchased the clear complexion cream from here, and it just doesn't work nearly as well as this one.

Love this cream
Love this in the pump, love this in the jar. Makes my face feel silky smooth and I have less dry skin and wrinkles. It is the same cream as in the pump.
Just hope Swanson doesn't stop making it because I'm hooked on it.

Swanson Premium Retinol Cream, 97% Natural
When I ordered two jars of Swanson Premium
Retinol Cream, 97% Natural I thought it would be light and silky exactly the same formula as what was in the pump jars. I was mistaken.
The cream in the jars is greasy and heavy. I will now most likely be looking for a new cream. I agree with others that Swanson should give people a choice. Offer the jar for those who want it and the pump (with the former formula) for those of us who prefer the pump. I'm very disappointed in this product.

REALLY! ! Come on ladies!!
First everyone gets their dander up with saying the pump is unacceptable because there is too much left at the bottom.......and I found that to be so true.
THEN, Swanson changes it to please their customers and now the cry is from the customers complaining about the jar! Poor Swansons!
Like Ole Abe said "You can please some of the people all of the time, All of the people some of the time.........etc......
Okay, try this girls......Take awhile to thoroughly wash your hands or maybe use an anti-bacterial wipe. Open the jar and scoop out what you want either with your finger or a sanitized stick. Quickly place the lid over the jar and apply the product. If you need more to cover your face ....repeat, then close the jar tightly. SO Simple and Common Sense!
This product is wonderful as are all of the other Cosmetic Science facial products offered by Swanson. And not only that but, way less expensive!
The comment about the tube would be 2nd best but even a tube, no matter how much you try to work the product to the top leaves a bit inside.

Makes my Skin Feel Soft
This is a nice face cream-not too oily, and makes my face feel soft and smooth. I truthfully haven't noticed any difference in the lines on my face. It's been about a month so far. I need a moisturizer, so will keep on using it and hope for some noticeable results.
March 25, 2013
I feel good!!!
I'm using my second container, overall in the morning and under make up. My skin feels moisturized immediately, along with my neck. I started using it for day and night, until I found the night creams from Reviva, I decide to use this one just for mornings along with the serum.
I highly recommend this product.

Love this product
I love this product. If you're looking for a retinol cream, you definitely get the most bang for your buck here.
I LOVE the packaging. I have an expensive pore reducing product in a pump and the packaging is designed so that you cannot use all of the product, and also the premeasured pump amounts give me no control over how much I want to use and I waste so much of it.
The next time I purchase any product (in the store) I am going to open it up and see if 1) it's a pump, and 2) the container is sealed so that you cannot even open it.
Pretty sneaky how people rip you off.
March 11, 2013
I've been using the cream maybe a month or a little less and I like the way my skin feels; however, I haven't seen any any noticable changes yet.
I don't have troubled skin but I can use some improvements. After another two months I should see a difference.
March 5, 2013
I'm currently using this product and I love it. My skin feels and looks great after use. I would recommend this face cream. It last a long time. Very pleased!

Interesting and Good
Love the texture and the quality ingredients. It stings a bit but probably is supposed to? i think i am seeing a difference in my skin having used this for about 2 weeks now. i like to use it before bedtime and before i add my usual night cream and eyecream.
i'd say 'yes' to this again.

Love this product
I have been using this retinol cream for several months and I really like the way it makes my skin feel. I think it is as good as the more expensive brands you find in drug stores. When I last purchased this, it came in the pump. I have had no problems with the pump. I must say that I'm concerned about purchasing the cream in the jar after reading the other reviews which state that it can lose its potency. As many have requested, I would like to request that it be made available in pump or jar form -- that way you can please everyone. Thanks, Swanson, for another great product at a great price.

Never used face creams before but heard a lot obout creams with Retinol. This product is the best I have found. Only used it for 2 weeks but notice a difference already!

Agree with other comments
Have to agree with other comments on this product. I believe that the pump is more sanitary and does
not allow for the product to get contaminated.
I like the product but, maybe, it would be better to
go back to the pump container?

I use this for my neck & hands it's does good job. For face better use stronger retinoids ;-) I like that this natural
January 25, 2013
I have the pump right now & just ordered the jar. I really like the way my face feels. My only complaint is you need to bring back the pump since the cream loses it's effectiveness when it comes in contact with air. Thanks!!

After my first jar of this retinol creme my skin looked much smoother, healthier and younger. I am half way through my second jar and will continue to buy this product in the JAR. Exposure to air does not seem to negatively affect the product for me. Both the product and the packaging seem to be great; all positives, no negatives.

I have purchased this product for 2 years now both in the pump and jar. Since we have not tried the
tube yet it may be a problem solving for all. In fact most of my expensive age defying creams come in the tube. This way you can squeeze every bit out..your $$ worth. Actually using Swanson Products you really get more than your $$ worth.
Love trying your products and everything that helps keeping me educated on what I put in/on my body.
I will be with you all the way in 2013.

I have seen positive results with this cream. I have also used more expensive brands and this is working just as well, if not better, for me. Thank you Swanson.

Please bring back the pump!
Dear Swanson: I really appreciate the fact that you listen to your customers. I understand there was demand to bring back the jar after the pump dispenser was introduced because many users insisted on 'scooping out' the last dregs of cream. However, this convenience comes at a price: loss of integrity of the active ingredients -- retinol, vitamin C -- with increased exposure to air. Pretty please bring back the pump, or offer both types of packaging so that your customers are free to choose. This is an exceptional product and I hope to continue to use it. Thanks for listening!
Note: My ratings for effectiveness and satisfaction are based on the jar alone.

Bring back the pump
I really like this product, but will not order it again because the packaging should be in a pump or tube so that the air doesn't get at the active ingredients. I didn't have any problems with the pump not working. Please bring it back.

Use it quickly - wide jar lid = fading potency
It's well-known that retinol is fairly quickly destroyed with exposure to air. Everyone who was complaining about the pump this used to come in managed to get their way but at the price of longevity of the product. I advise you open the jar and quickly remove the amount you need to a plate or cup -- then close the jar immediately. It's about all you can do to try and preserve the life of the retinol 'til the time you've used the contents up.

bring back the pump
i agree with everyone the container needs to be back to a pump (which i never have troubles with) or in a tube. I have a scrub from here and i dont use it due to it being in a jar and always exposed to air and the shower for that matter. I love the cream otherwise. or maybe have 2 options for people, so us who liked the pump have a choice. thanks
