    I Love this lotion. It feels great . It only takes about a dime amount for the face if I use too much it is sticky . It really does soften skin and keeps it nice.It's a little pricey but last quite a while if used in moderation. I would like it if they made this lotion in a big big bottle so I would have enough for my whole body, but this is good enough for me.

    I used to love the formula for this lotion listed on drugstore.com and would buy this up when it would go on sale or I had a coupon. I finally got to the latest bottle I had on hand of this from this website and had been using it, but felt it was not doing quite the same as it before on my skin.Upon perusing the ingredient list I found that the ingredient list is different on the most recent bottle I received compared to the previous bottles and the on this site. One big change isHYDROXYETHYL ACRYLATEhttp://www.ewg.org/skindeep/ingredient/703052/HYDROXYETHYL_ACRYLATE/and sodium acryloyldimethyl taurate copolymer as one of the highest volume ingredients in this formulation rather than their usual botanical infusions.I try to avoid acrylates at all costs and the version here is listed (it's a 5) higher for immunotoxicity than I want in a product (3 or under)The second chemical mentioned, sodium acryloyldimethyl taurate copolymer, appears to not have enough information on it which is even less comforting to me to put on my face.Why was the formula changed and why is it not reflected in the website. I am upset at both companies for this change and lack of ingredient listing updating.

        This is my favorite moisturizer - forget the really expensive ones. It has a faint aroma, nothing flowery or fruity. I'm 60 & have been using this for years - I have few wrinkles and my skin always looks clear. I wouldn't use anything else... ever.

        Works fine, not crazy about the smell

        Comments about Beauty Without Cruelty Moisture Cream, Skin Renewal 8% Alpha Hydroxy Complex, 4 fl oz:

        This lotion works fine. I bought it while I was pregnant to help control a sudden change in my skin texture. It didn't seem to hurt or help either way and since it seems to moisturize well without creating an oily feel, I use it sporadically for night use. I'm not at all crazy about the smell, so I gave it to my husband after he ran out of face moisturizer and went back to the Nature's Gate Chardonnay face moisturizer that I absolutely love. Haven't had a problem with the bottle breaking down, but I've only had it for 4 months. Like how much you get for the price.

          I've been using this for over a year and love it.
          It is thick but effective for aging skin
          The problem is the container (bottle) cracks over time which leads to wasted lotion.
          I transfer it into a little container of my own.
          Wish the manufacturer would improve the bottle.

            I love this product and will continue to use it as long as it is available, I'm 52 years old and this stuff feels so quenching. Have read reviews abot the smell... it's a natural scent that dissapates in short order.

              I love BWC products. The consistency is perfect, it smells fresh and it really works. The fact that it isn't tested on animals seals the deal for me. This is great stuff and I was a Creme de la Mer user for years. It hydrates really well without feeling heavy and brings out the best in your skin.

                  I've seen such a difference in my skin since using this lotion. It's gentle yet potent. I'm already on my second bottle and will continue to buy it- oh, and my husband loves it too. I've been really happy with everything I've tried from the beauty without cruelty line.

                    This stuff is great! A little goes a really long way. It keeps my skin clear and soft. I don't love the smell, but it's not horrible and wears off pretty quickly.

                    The smell of this lotion that most find offensive is chamomile. This product uses essential oils of chamomile which are very good for the skin. I have been using it for a few weeks now and I'm very impressed. It works well for my face under makeup and I have oily/combo skin. I will buy it again.

                    As other reviewers have noted, this is a very thick cream. However I'm not sure why this is a problem for so many people. The only thing I noticed is that it made it hard to get the last few drops out of the bottle. I bought this because I thought it might help clear up the acne on my back/chest, and perhaps fade some of the marks. I was impressed with the results. It made the skin on my back much smoother and definitely helped get rid of some of the marks from old pimples (not scars, mind you, just dark marks). The smell is not very pleasant, however I did not find it very strong and so it did not really bother me.

                    I like this product and haven't had any problems with it. Two things I didn't like: the medicinal smell that goes away once it's absorbed, and the bottle itself. If you have arthritis or other hand manipulation problems, you will have difficulty getting this out of the bottle. I think I will go with one of the jar-type moisturizers next time.
