Last month I reviewed a face serum. This month I have a daily face cream made by New York Biology that I was sent to review. It’s called Retinol Cream for Face with Hyaluronic Acid – Daily Moisturizer Cream and it is made by New York Biology here in the United States. It’s $21.50 for 1.7 fl oz which is a great deal for a cream that contains 2.5% Retinol.
Retinol or Vitamin A helps fight signs of aging and with wrinkles with it’s antioxidant power. The Retinol Cream contains Jojoba Oil and Shea Butter which are great moisturizers. There are other ingredients like Aloe Vera, Palm Oil, Sunflower Oil, Phospholipids, Vitamin E, Wildcrafted Green Tea, Shea Butter, Propolis, and Vitamin B5. There are no alcohols, paragons or sulfates in this product.
My New York Biology Experience
A year ago I realized how dull and tired my skin had gotten. Four months ago I started in with an amazing product line that I love. Sadly, my checking account doesn’t. I decided I’d see if I could find an alternative line that was more affordable but gave comparable results. I knew that Retinol and Hyaluronic Acid were good for your face so when I was offered this review I figured it wouldn’t hurt to check it out.
The directions say to wash your face and then apply the cream. The cream is safe enough to apply to your eye area so I did that. The cream itself is a good weight that goes on smoothly and absorbs quickly. My face feels slightly tighter when I use it in the morning. It does seem to make my face sweat quite a bit after I finish apply it. I really don’t love that but it’s fairly common for me when I use a cream based product. My face is soft so I know I’m absorbing some of it. I haven’t broken out while using this so that’s been a huge bonus. Creams can be to heavy for my face so I was pleasantly surprised.
Overall, I think I’d probably continue using this cream if I had seen some brightening with it. I like the light scent and how it hydrates but my face seems to be loosing some of the brightness it had before. I think that if I can find a brightening serum to use in conjunction with this cream I might have found something I can afford and that gets results. For now the hunt continues.
I received a bottle of Retinol Cream for Face with Hyaluronic Acid – Daily Moisturizer Cream for free in exchange for my honest opinion. I have not been compensated monetarily and all opinions and thoughts are my own.
