Retinol Cream, 97% Natural
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.

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.

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.

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.

Great fine line reducer
Still using this nightly and am seeing results after a couple weeks.

Better than products we've tried that are 10x the price.

'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.

Great natural product
This cream is sooo much better then buying it at the store. Its thickness does not weigh down on the face.

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.
+ decent moisturizer, not overly greasy
+ really cheap
+ you get a lot of product for your buck
- 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.)

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.

Swanson Premium Retinol Cream is the best. It does great on your body just as well as your face!

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

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.

2 1/2 leaves
I'm sure that this is a great product for some but for me it contains too much glycerin which makes it too sticky.
The other ingredients look great but the consistency just does not work for me. I wish it were more emollient/spreadable and contained more oil (a light oil like jojoba) instead of glycerin, which does not moisturize my skin.

I bought this cream because of a good ingredients. I was very excited to get such a great combination of natural oils. When I used it first time I could tell there was a retinol for sure because in tingled.
It applies very nicely and absorbs quickly. The only one con for me is odor. It smell weird. But scent goes away easily.
Also it would be great if product would have a pump.

Great price and very effective for diminishing fine lines. This product used to come in a pump bottle which I liked better.

Love this stuff!
I love this retinol cream, it's so easy to rub into the skin, and it's not sticky or goopy like some other things I have tried even some products that cost me nearly $300.00 for a mere ounce. I must say I was at first skeptical, but after using it against my expensive brands, I am going to save a lot of money!

Great skin cream!
I use this cream every night. It makes my skin so soft. I have used other more expensive face creams, but this is my favorite!

Good face product.
I try to keep this available at all times to use on my face to promote youthful skin. I feel like it is very beneficial and a good product especially for the price.

retinol cream 97% natural
I absolutely love this cream. I have seen a marked improvement in my skin since I started using it.

Swanson's Natural Retinol Cream is as good
if not better than any of the other "expensive" brands on the market. Have noticed a big difference in
my skins clarity and texture.

Retinol face cream
I do like this Retinol face cream a lot and I did notice less wrinkles, and did recommended to my friends.
The only thing I find that is missing is a bit more moisturizer . Maybe it's O.K for Texas, but not for temperate or cool area's.
I have to apply a small bit of olive oil on top of it
so my skin don't feel tight Thank you.

great face cream
This product is light enough to wear in our Texas heat, yet makes my face feel very soft. I can already see a difference in the appearance of my skin. I will buy this again.

This is a great moisturizer. I was disappointed that it came in a jar. My mother-in-law introduced it to me and it was a pump. Otherwise I really like it. I find myself using too much with the jar.
