One reviewer says it keeps their skin young, while another raves that tiny wrinkles are disappearing. While it’s labeled for normal to dry skin, a former "extremely oily" skin user no longer has oily skin, thanks to Nourish Organic, which also keeps her acne away.

EWG Rating - 1
Fakespot Grade - B
  

  • Anti-Aging
  • Skin Type: ALL

This 100% all-natural and vegan face cream has a light texture that absorbs well. Kigelia Extract hydrates and firms skin. Full of antioxidants, this moisturizer packs some serious antibacterial superhero powers to keep breakouts at bay.

Lady Esther Face Cream

EWG Rating - 2
Fakespot Grade - B
 

  • Skin Type: ALL

Lady Esther is a classic face cream that has been around for over a century ... I kid you not! It is a long time favorite of many youthful looking senior citizens, so you could say this cream has certainly stood the test of time. It is not advertised as anti-aging, but an overwhelming number of reviewers, young and old, will tell you differently. It’s a unique 4 in 1 product that Cleanses, Moisturizes, Softens, and creates a great Makeup Base.

Per the jar packaging:

  1. Used as a cleanser, it deep-cleans away dirt and even the heaviest makeup.
  2. Then, it can be used as a moisturizer to seal in your skin’s precious moisture.
  3. It is an effective skin softener.
  4. As a makeup base, it is transparent and light, and helps keep makeup fresh all day.

Review Highlights

A great many reviewers have used this product for 40+ years and rave about it’s anti-aging benefits. A great many other reviewers use it because their MOTHER has used it for 70+ years and looks so much younger than her age. They love that it removes makeup, including eye makeup … it moisturizes well without being greasy, is great for sensitive skin, and is a veritable fountain of youth!

EWG Rating - 1
Fakespot Grade - A  Super trustworthy Amazon reviews

  • Color Correcting Tint
  • Anti-Aging
  • SPF 30
  • Skin Type: ALL

What's a CC cream? I'm glad you asked! It's an all-in-one moisturizer, skin firmer, wrinkle reducer, color corrector and a whole slew of other things. Juice Beauty Cellular CC Cream offers five color tints to choose from, so your complexion is evened out every time you apply it. Pretty cool, eh?

Review Highlights

Reviewers LOVE LOVE LOVE this CC Cream. One woman gets compliments that she looks much younger since using it, while another remarks that the fine lines around her mouth and forehead are barely visible now. The first time a 65 year-young gal applied it, she was delighted with how very soft her sensitive, dry skin felt. Reviewers say that while it is not a full coverage foundation, it evens out skin tone and provides a very natural coverage ... an awesome glow. Nice!

More than one reviewer raves that this face cream has kept their eczema from flaring up, one on her eyelids, another on her young son’s booty, and another on her arms ... which makes her call SanRe a “miracle product". One woman says her skin is healthier than ever before, even during the brutal winter months.

REVIEWER TIP: Add a few drops jojoba oil to even out the thickness of this thick, “balm like” moisturizer.

Review Highlights

Reviewers who spend the day in the sun love that this product prevents burning, while adding a tint of color. They agree that it does go on a little greasy, but with some extra blending, it eventually absorbs. One reviewer suggests using a makeup blender. A user, who spends a lot of time in the sun as a swimmer and coach, won’t use anything else. A few reviewers also mention that it does not make them breakout.

Review Highlights

A man sensitive to Octinoxate, commonly used in sunscreen, experienced a serious wow factor when he tried this natural SPF 15 day cream.
