I am 51 years old and my face and hands are starting to show their age. I have dry skin and have been searching, literally, for 10 years to find the perfect moisturizer for my face. I prefer all natural products if possible, and many face creams I tried didn’t work out due to scent, making my face red, or simply failing to do the job. Until Avalon!
A few months ago I was checking out the face care products in the natural foods department in my grocery store. I read labels and compared products, and ended up with Avalon Orgaincs Vitamin C Renewal Facial Cream. The retail price was $22.00, and it was not on sale, this almost made me pass it up for cheaper products, but I’m glad I didn’t do that!
This cream will give me some defense against aging from the sun. It comes in a 2 ounce jar, with an ample 2″ wide opening so I can get to every last bit of this fantastic cream. The is little color to it, mostly white, and it smells like oranges!! The smell is amazing. The container states this: Our renewal facial cream with Vitamin C and a Lipo-Filling Complex will energize your compexion with improved circulation, clarity, tone and texture”. It claims to help firm the skin as well.
This face cream is so nourishing and it contains antioxidants such as organic White Tea, Melatonin, and Lemon Bioflavanoids to protect me from environmental toxins. It can be used both in the morning and in the evening as a night cream. Vitamin C is great for the skin since it actually stimulates the renewal of cells. It also minimizes damage from the sun and other air pollutants, which all lead to premature aging. It has also been known to make the skin brighter and help lessen those dreaded age spots! Avalon Organics uses a special kind of Vitamin C, made with Magnesium Ascorbal Phosphate, which is a very stable form of the vitamin and remains active the entire life of the cream! Vitamin C also stimulates the bodies production of collagen and elastin, both of which are essential in keeping skin look young.
All of these claims amazed me, and when I took a look at the ingredients that Avalon Organics uses, I was so pleased! Very few chemicals, (no harmful ones), no fillers, and every single ingredient is not written in another language so I know exactly what I am putting on my skin! Take a look for yourself:
Organic lavender(1), chamomile(1), white tea(2), organic arnica montana(3) extracts (aqueous), organic aloe barbadensis(2), vegetable glycerin, vitamin C, emulsifying wax, organic sunflower oil, tromethamine stearate, octyl palmitate, cetearyl alcohol, lipo-filling complex (saccharomyces/xylimun, black tea ferment and hydroxyethylcellulose), po-vitamin B5, Vitamin E, melatonin, lemon bioflavonoids, organic borage and flax seed oils, rose hip oil, olive squalane, soy lecithin, green tea extract, organic sweet almond oil, allantoin, cocoa butter, glyceryl stearate, dimethicone, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin, benzyl alcohol, organic citrus orange oil(2) and other essential oils.

I love, love, love this face cream! After 10 years my search for the perfect product is over! This cream goes on so smoothly, is quickly absorbed, leaves absolutely NO greasy feel on my face or hands, and it doesn’t cause redness to my face. The smell is so wonderful, it’s so light and refreshing! I have used other natural products for age spots in the past, and their active ingredient was chamomile. That is the second ingredient! No wonder this works so well on age spots! I have one large area to the right of my eye that has diminished significantly over the past few months, it has not gone away but it is not nearly as noticeable as it was 3 months ago!
When I apply this cream in the morning, it gives my face the needed moisturizing all day long, and make up applies over the top of it flawlessly! When I use it as a night cream, my face feels softer in the morning. Not only does this product work great, it is SO natural and safe for my body. I hate the thought of putting toxic petro-chemicals on my skin. After all, our skin is our bodies largest organ, so what we put on it really does make a difference.
I could rave about this face cream all day long, but I hope you get the message that this is a very special face cream, one that has helped the condition of my skin and has caused absolutely no break outs from clogged pores. It is amazing and you should give it a try!
