Customer Ratings & Reviews

Intense Defense with Vitamin C Renewal Cream is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from To soon A bit high in price and I have only been using it for about 5 weeks so in conjunction with the Hyaluronic Acid Serum and Swanson Vitamin C cream over both I am not sure which one of the three it is that is working or maybe it is a combination of the three but my face is not so dry anymore and has some moisture to it now and my upper lip seems to be smoother as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good cream Mixed with Hyaluronic acid gel as a night cream. A little greasy but works well. Way less expensive than the other cream at the store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Avalon Organics I have used this product for about 4 years now. I think it is great. I use it on my face and neck. It makes my skin look healthy and refreshed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed The first time I purchased it, I liked it a lot. Then I ordered 2 more jars. However, this time, it was not as good. The cream appeared mushy, and I could drain water out of it. It was hard to apply it as it was so thin on the surface. I think the cream is simply too old that caused the ingredients to separate from the liquid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great vitamin C cream! This cream seems to be very effective so far. I love keeping my complexion clear and healthy looking! I've had several compliments on my complexions since using this cream. I used to use only coconut oil on my face, but now I use both: right after washing my face I use the coconut, then an hour later before putting on any makeup (just mascara and eyebrow pencil), I top of my complexion with vitamin C cream. It has a lovely luster to it, and I'm so glad I tried it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ooh La La Hydrating and smells great. Like whipped cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have found this cream to be a delightful addition to my skin care regimen. My skin is very dry and, at 72 years of age, beginning to show it. This cream has restored a fresh and bright look to my face. The thin wrinkles are gone away. I would not be without the cream and order two at a time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from smooth I love the texture and smell of this cream. It is smooth and moisturizing without feeling at all oily or watery, and it smells like orange sherbet. I like the ingredients and feel good about putting them on my face. Plus, the jars are quite cute, and useful for several other products when they're empty (the label is removable). Works well under makeup because it's not shiny.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seemed to dry my skin This cream has a wonderful citrus fragrance when you apply it, but for me it seemed to make my skin feel dry instead of moisturized. I've used the facial cleanser and loved that, but this renewal cream isn't a hit with me and I won't buy it again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome! Have not been using for a long time therefore it got four leaves. But for the price you cannot beat it. Not tested on animals, organic ingredients, no parabens. This is a steal. Makes my skin feel softer and has a more radiant glow. Not sure why others state it is greasy, it is a thickish cream but once you rub it into the skin my face is not oily at all. Will continue to use and buy. J

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ahhhhhhhhh! So happy to have this back for moisture. I don't know why I keep trying different things. This one, I really missed! Moisturizes great in the winter for my very dry 53 year old skin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Yuck Feels greasy and irritates my skin. The oil- free version did not moisturize. I'm going back to AUBREY'S Organics. Much better results and their products are truly natural, more effective and the prices are better than Avalon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Moisturizer I use this after I wash my face with the Vitamin C cleanser. Goes on smooth and my skin feels hydrated all day. Good, safe ingredients too. I will definitely get this again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Cream! After spending a small fortune getting Vitamin C cream from one of those popular TV shopping shows, I decided to try the Avalon Vitamin C cream from Swanson. I just love it! The scent is wonderful. It is thick when it goes on but absorbs quickly so I can put my makeup on right away. Since the expensive TV cream has Hyaluronic Acid in it, I bought the Swanson Hyaluronic Acid and put it on first. My skin is glowing! I've noticed that the fine "wisdom lines" under my eyes and over my lips are much less noticeable. Thank you Swanson for that and for making quality products at reasonable prices!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I use this product at nite and another moisturizer during the day. Since I started this, I can really see a difference in my appearance. I, too, love the fragrance and that it's an organic product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nourishing and relieving cream I really like this cream as it is rich and yet doesn't feel heavy on the skin, nor does it leave a greasy feel. I immediately feel relief when applying it to dry areas of my face.
Date published: 2012-03-25
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I've used better I tried Avalon Organics' Vitamin C Renewal Facial Cream after reading the glowing reviews it had received. I don't know what all the hoopla is about. It smells good and absorbs nicely, and does make my skin feel hydrated. However, I haven't seen any signs that it is "renewing" anything. My skin tone is the same and my wrinkles are the same. On the contrary, what I have noticed is that my pores appear even larger since I've been using this cream. I won't purchase it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious I love this cream and it smells so good. I like having the Vit C. too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Moisturizer! I love this facial lotion! It's very moisturizing and goes well under make-up. I suffer from dry skin during the winter months and this product has been the best on those very dry and cold days.
Date published: 2010-03-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price I have been using this product for sometime and love it. Prior to finding Swanson Health Products I purchased this in other stores and this is by far the BEST PRICE!
Date published: 2010-03-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Facial Cleanser Ever I recently turned 50 and I have combination skin. After trying numerous cleansers, this is by far the best, not just because the price is so reasonable, but it leaves your skin feeling clean with no oily residue or dryness. It's gentle enough for my "tender young" skin....said with a smile.......but no harsh stripping that leaves your face feeling tight! Along with the Vitamin C moisturizer, these products will be in my cosmetic bag forever!
