Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am 68 yrs. old and I can't believe it's taken me all this time to find a really good face moisturizer. It's not greasy and the price is great!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Goopy, But It Works! The texture of this cream is a little heavier than I am used to, so I use it as a night cream. You won't see results right away but over time the retinol works to flake off the upper layers of dry, damaged skin. I noticed the dark blotches I had are finally breaking up and my skin tone is much more even. This cream gave better results at 1/4 of the price of another name brand cream I used. It is an excellent value for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have been using this product for about a month now and I love it! My skin looks and feels healthier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! It works, it works, it works. Skin is softer, pores minimized, wrinkles less noticeable. After a few other creams left me disappointed I am pleased to give this one 2 Thumbs up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for the money This is also an all over day or night cream that takes care of things. The only slight drawback is that it takes a few minutes for it to sit before putting on the makeup. only about 2 min.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Product My face loves your Swanson Retinol Cream! I've tried others over the yrs, but after using this cream, I won't use anything else. It keeps my skin hydrated and smooths out my complexion! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super High Qualilty I've tried every brand of Retinol out there and Swanson's proved the hands-down best! With my sensitive, aging skin (I'm in my sixties#, that's still prone to redness and occasional blemishes #...go figure, since all of those hormones 'left the building' eons ago), Swanson's own brand of moisturizers have proved a Godsend in that they are super gentle yet highly effective. Exactly what I needed, when I needed it. Thanks to Swanson, I'll be aging as gracefully as I had hoped to!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Moisturizer I'm in my early twenties and the price is what enticed me to purchase this product. I don't necessarily need the anti-wrinkle properties that Retinal Cream provides but got it for the moisturizing properties. I use this in the morning and it leaves my skin very moisturized throughout the day. The scent is very mild and not overpowering as well. I've been using it for two months and still have a lot left because a little goes a long way! Definitely recommend this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Left me sticky. I bought this cream because of the wonderful low price. Although happy with most Swanson products, I didn't care for the consistency of this cream - it did not apply smoothly and left my skin feeling sticky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent, nothing short If you are insistent on using creams in a fancy bottle for over $100 an ounce, get an empty bottle and fill it with this stuff. Nothing short of excellent. It works great on my 41 year old face in the Colorado very dry high desert. I have few to no wrinkles and small signs of aging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ssshhhhhhh! I have spent a LOT more money on products that only claim to do what this one does! It's my "secret" weapon. When I get a compliment, it is because I have been back to using this. The texture isn't perfect, but the results are worth that tiny flaw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my clearer skin Really nice product for facial clarity. Love the softness of my skin on face, arms and hands. Of course, I will be buying more.
Date published: 2015-05-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My secret. Love the packaging of this, so glad it's not in a pump!! I have used this for at least two years, about to turn 49, and get lot's of compliments on my skin. This product is my secret! So thankful to find something that actually works and doesn't cost 50 bucks. I will buy this forever.
Date published: 2015-02-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Texture is smooth and somewhat moisturizing, but the best thing is I could tell a difference in depth of my wrinkles within a couple of weeks. I have ordered the same type of cream from a couple of other vitamin companies, but had no real benefits noticed at all, this one I like. I plan to continue using this product, I feel it is a really good value.
Date published: 2014-10-05
Rated 3 out of 5 by from TOO THICK FOR MY FACE Yet another cream that's too thick for my face, that I have to just use on my neck. How much retinol is in it, there is a way to let you know how many IUs there are, so I wonder why its not on the package.
Date published: 2014-09-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well Worth the price! Good product! It lasts for a long time my primary use is right before bed. My face looks refresh and feels soft to the touch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 'First World' Whining I'm so weary of slogging through site after site, and review after review that seem to be created by people who are at a loss as to how to fill the minutes between the continual postings of their life's banalities on the 300 'social network' sites of which they're a member. You guys. Use it before it expires, keep it tightly sealed. It's seven bucks. There's only so much a face cream can do. You won't get a new face in a jar for any price (why anyone born after 1976 is using Retinol, is beyond me) Retinol in OTC doses can't do a whole lot anyway, and most skin issues are due to lifestyle, diet, hormones, environment and genes. This is my EXPERIENCE at 47 years-old, going through hormonal h*ll, dealing with melasma, loss of collegan, and stress. Consider all of these things before you buy ANY skincare product. If you want to try this product, however, it certainly won't harm your skin unless you're sensitive to Retinol, and I would highly recommend purchasing it here, because the no-questions-asked refunds with FREE return shipping (great customer service), and affordability make it a winner. Oh, and drink more water, skin loves that most of all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great natural product This cream is sooo much better then buying it at the store. Its thickness does not weigh down on the face.
Date published: 2014-07-10
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay As A Moisturizer, Null As A Retinol Product Been using this for a few weeks. I haven't noticed any huge changes in my skin. It's slightly finer/smoother but that's just as much as you would expect from using any decent moisturizer. This is the first retinol product I've used so I really have no comparison but based on my research, retinol is supposed to have really noticeable results. I will probably try other retinol products after I finish this jar. PROS + decent moisturizer, not overly greasy + really cheap + you get a lot of product for your buck CONS - does not provide expected benefits of retinol - odd smell (I kind of hate it.) - jar packaging (I've read that jars are the worst for cosmetics because they allow for oxidation which affects the potency of the ingredients. A pump or tube would minimize oxidation and would be more sanitary.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I love this retinol cream and use it daily. I use it with Swanson's Reversatol cream and I am very pleased with both. I highly recommend the product and at a great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Youthful Swanson Premium Retinol Cream is the best. It does great on your body just as well as your face!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Face Moisturizer This is a reorder product for sure. Easy to apply on face and absorbs very well. Love the natural ingredients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Retinal cream I am told a lot "what beautiful facial skin I have". I owe a lot of it to Swanson's retinal cream I have used for many years! I am ordering some today for 2 friends to try.
