Anyone who loves skin care knows the benefits of retinol. It seems to do it all: fights age spots and sun damage, combats uneven skin texture, and smoothes fine lines and wrinkles. It’s strong, but finding a high concentration of the compound usually requires getting a prescription from a dermatologist. Amazon shoppers are confident they’ve found the best over-the-counter solution – namely the Simplified retinol skin moisturizer. The cream is formulated with 2.5% active retinol – the strongest non-prescription concentration on the market. The thick lotion is also formulated with a blend of beneficial ingredients including vitamins E and B5, hyaluronic acid, luxurious shea butter, soothing green tea and jojoba oil. Even better, it’s on sale now for $15 (was $25).
Gentle on sensitive skin
Customers with sensitive skin praise the gentle (but effective) cream.
“I bought a second one because I never want to go out.” a five star shopper shared. “I was looking for a cream that was natural, organic, anti-aging and restorative Years. I’ve used Dermalogica and Mary Kay and Aveda and several other natural and organic lines like Aubrey’s etc. All of them bothered my skin and contained ingredients that I later discovered I was allergic to. This product does not contain typical allergens. It’s clean, natural, and organic simply. My skin feels nourished and for sure when i use it!!! I love retinol and the form of hyaluronic acid seems gentler than most because I can feel it working but doesn’t harm my skin. My skin is dry and very sensitive.”
Another added: “I’m very picky about my skincare products, but this face cream is fantastic. I love the feeling on my face. It’s very moisturizing without the greasy feeling. I have sensitive skin and it’s perfect for me.”
A cheap alternative
Shoppers spending a lot more on expensive brands have jumped on the Simplified Skin bandwagon. Why spend more money for the same ingredients?
“Very nice cream” commented a grateful buyer. “I use it at night. I contacted the seller with questions – very friendly and informative. … Bottle in a very nice size at a great price. I have used more expensive eye creams like Clarins and Lancome. This cream is better and much cheaper.”
Some even compare it to prescription treatments:
Another convert explained: “I finally found a cream that actually contains retinol! I’ve been using retinol for about 15 years and got a prescription for it earlier. This product is inexpensive and really works. You only need to apply a small amount to areas with fine lines. …I know it works because I applied it to my fine lines around my lips/eyes/forehead and could see it disappear. I mix it with my face moisturizer. I just turned 50 this month and have very few wrinkles from using retinol. I love this product and will buy it again and again! It works just like the recipe I bought earlier. Already recommended friends.”
Nobody likes feeling a thick, sticky moisturizer on their face—especially in the summer. Reviewers can’t stop praising this light creamand notice how comfortable it feels on their skin whether they apply it in the morning or at night.
“I love this cream!” gushed one reviewer. “It’s lightweight, has virtually no odor and my skin looks amazing since I’ve been using it for the past few months. I now use it every night with her face wash and vitamin C serum (these were added a few weeks ago) and my face hasn’t looked this clear and youthful in years. It also feels soft and the fine lines are gone. I love Simplified Skin products!”
Another shopper with sensitive skin agreed:
“It worked so well on my skin,” she shared. “I’ve been using it for a while now and I love it so much I wanted to update my review. It hydrates my skin so well. I also love how light and easy it is on my sensitive skin.”
Most importantly, shoppers praise how effective the cream is at reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
“I’ve been using it for about two months – love this moisturizer!” noted one reviewer. “My skin feels like it’s plumped up and wrinkles have definitely diminished. Thank you!!”
“My skin looks great since using it” raved shared. “Wrinkles and lines have almost completely disappeared. Two weeks after I started using the cream, my friend commented on how good my skin looked.”
Also eliminates acne
This product is also praised for preventing breakouts.
A fan explains: “Big difference. The skin looks more elastic and for the first time in my life I have little to no acne. I tried another brand at 3% but it clogged my pores. This one is better in terms of ingredients. Will buy them again.
