I am 46 and holding Mother Nature at bay, as best I can! LOL! I think the whole Derma-E line is amazing and this cream is no exception. Rich and moisturizing, a little goes a long way. I have dry, peri menopausal skin with sun damage, yet I break out easily. ( Oh joy!) this cream makes my skin feel wonderful without being heavy. I like the smell, it smells floral, but not overwhelming. A 4 ounce jar that seems to last forever. I bought mine 5 months ago and it is still going. A suggestion...use a spatula and clean it each time so you don't contaminate the jar with your fingers.

I searched everywhere for an affordable, natural, retinol facial lotion. When I found this I thought I had found my miracle. All natural and so many good reviews I just had to give it a shot.

I really wanted to like this product. I used it for a week all over my face, neck and chest and hated every minute of it. It has a VERY heavy feel to it. Whats funny is that as you scoop some out of the jar it seems to be too watery. But then it just sits on your skin when you apply it. It made my dry skin look oily! So I decided just to apply it before bed so I can sleep off the greasyness. But the smell was just too much to bear. It smells like a grandmother's flowery perfume. Very heavy smell that took a long time to fade. After a few days of experimenting with this I just couldn't stand it anymore. It got to the point every night where I had to run to the bathroom to wash it off. It just felt nasty on my face. Not to mention stinky.

I really hate to waste so I can't bring myself to throw it away. I'm just using it as a spot treatment on the areas that have sun spots and where wrinkles are starting to show on my forehead and around my eyes. And even there I use a VERY light application. It still smells but its not as overpowering as when I applied it to my entire face, neck and chest!

    Comments about derma e Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Retinyl Palmitate Creme, 4 oz:

    I bought this to use as an anti wrinkle cream under my eyes. The first thing I notice about it was that it has a very strong fragrance, which I personally don't like. Regardless of the smell I used it under my eyes before bed for 2-3 weeks and off and on after that. It's been a while and I have not noticed any results. On the other hand, I got a sample of night time cream from another brand and i have been using a little under my eyes and that has showed a difference in my fine lines.

          Comments about derma e Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Retinyl Palmitate Creme, 4 oz:

          I have dry skin and the area under my eyes get wrinkles if I don't moisturize. So when I searched for under eye cream this product came up. It works fine as a moisturizer but it just work for what I intended to use it for. It didn't really show improvement on the wrinkles I get which typically I can use any kind of cream and they go away. Also, I am really sensitive and picky about smells and the smell of the product was a little too strong and unnatural for me.

            This is a creamy non-greasy moisturizer for dry skin. It smells like an old lady's perfume though. I really despise the smell. Someone said gardenia. That's sort of it. It goes away after a few minutes so I deal with it but not sure I would buy it again.

            Comments about derma e Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Retinyl Palmitate Creme, 4 oz:

            I noticed that many reviewers complained about the smell. The smell is not as offensive, as unusual. It is due to essential oils and other plant extracts. It might be somewhat strong, but non-irritating, unlike artificial fragrances found in high end commercial cosmetic brands. Try applying in thin layers it it smells too strong. Actually my husband found the smell very appealing. He likened it to a summer meadow on a hot day. The cream is very soothing, it is perfect for sensitive skin prone to breakouts. I use it all over body, not just my face.

              Im 24 so im using this more for the vitamin A and wrinkle prevention.
              I was AMAZED to see the dark circles under my eyes gone within a few days of use.

              The cream is very light and silky and goes on smooth. Its not greasy at all.
              And I dont think it smells bad! A bunch of reviews were complaining that it smells like granny perfume.
              No way! It smells like gardenias!

              Ive been using it in combination with the tea-tree cream from this same brand. I couldnt be happier with the results.

              Comments about derma e Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Retinyl Palmitate Creme, 4 oz:

              This product has many of the ingredients that my research has shown are best for anti-aging products. (Except a strong dose of vitamin C, but you can get that from derma e DMAE Alpha Lipoic C-Ester Serum.) I'm only 31, so I don't have a lot of wrinkles, so I use it to be proactive about preventing wrinkles from developing. I use it most nights, and I'm confident that continued use will achieve my main goal. Plus, I have the immediate effect of leaving my skin soft, smooth and moisturized. However, it smells AWFUL! Like old lady perfume, but yucky. Not sweet smelling floral that reminds you of your grandmother and her favorite bottle of white shoulders, but old mothball-ridden fake floral. My dogs are both little lotion-holics--they always try to lick me when I wear lotion and I have to either cover up of fight them off (yeah, weird, I know)--but even they won't have anything to do with this stuff. Fragrance is listed on the ingredient list, but DermaE would be doing themselves a favor if they just left that ingredient off completely.

                I use this creme every morning and evening. A little goes a long way! It is very concentrated so don't slather it on like other products on the market. I have very sensitive skin (it breaks out easily), dry skin around the mouth, and oily T zone. And at 41, I also need to address wrinkle. This is the only creme that works for me. It moisturizes my dry skin yet non greasy on my T-zone. Best of all, no break out for the past 9 months! I highly recommend it!

                  I use this on my neck, arms and decolletage. I used to use it on my face but since I'm using prescription face stuff now I've abstained. I love this stuff - I don't find the smell strong like some other reviewers nor do I find it greasy. To me the scent is mildly floral with a hint of vanilla.

                  When I did use it on my face it never broke me out. I would consider it a heavier moisturizer though which I really like for my super dry skin.

                  One of the other reviewers said it irritated her skin because it was harsh. I've not personally had that experience but since it does contain Vitamin A, if you're sensitive, I'd start using it every other day and sparingly. Vitamin A will exfoliate, so you've got to start slow if you're sensitive. Personally, i was able to slather it on right away but if you're very sensitive, go easy at first. I think it's worth it. It's very nice stuff.
