'My skin is tighter and softer': This anti-aging retinol cream is down to $15

The crepey-skin buster is 'inexpensive enough to slather on with wild abandon,' says one fan.

Once you reach a certain age, your skin starts changing, behaving in all sorts of new and unusual ways. From brown spots to wrinkles to sagginess, each day of getting older can feel like a beauty surprise. One issue that's extra challenging to deal with is crepey skin. Not only does it look odd, it also often feels fragile and thin. Plus, it tends to show up on large swaths of your body, meaning that any product you use to treat it needs to be heavy-duty (and not come in a tiny, expensive jar). Luckily, you can get a deal on a huge vat of cream that shoppers have long loved for its anti-aging effects: Naturewell Clinical Retinol Advanced Moisture Cream. It's just $15 with double discounts (down from $25) at Amazon.

This nongreasy cream is formulated to renew, hydrate and firm your skin from head to toe. Note: A small amount goes a long way, so use it sparingly.

What reviewers say 💬

The sheer number of rave reviews this cream has says it all — more than 9,000 five-star ratings. Fans are delighted with how well it tightens crepey skin, but some love it on their hands too.

Pros 👍

"I love how this cream feels," shared one reviewer. "When you pump some into your hand it feels thick, like it's gonna end up being greasy, but it's not! The backs of my hands were getting crepey. ... After just a few applications, that is gone!"

One impressed reviewer, who "wished [they] could give more than five stars," noted: "I tried this lotion on one arm and did a comparison. OMG! The difference was astounding and immediate. My skin has a glow about it. No easy feat for 65-year-old skin. Buy it. You won't regret it."

Other users also report a difference when using this cream. "I am 66 and worked outside all my life. Although I have always taken care of my skin, it is still old," one customer confessed. "[This cream] is an awesome moisturizer and is inexpensive enough to slather on with wild abandon ... This makes my skin feel fabulous."

"I've noticed great improvements since using this product," reported another satisfied shopper. "I don't have the bags under my eyes that I used to, and my skin is tighter and softer."

Cons 👎

Reviewers' main criticism applies not to the cream itself, but the container: "Love the cream, but the straw to the pump is way too short. Leaves about 1/3 of the product," one user said.

Another writer reported: "The pump on the container didn’t work ... I apply the cream with a spatula."

Over 9,000 happy Amazon shoppers have given this crepe-busting cream their five-star seal of approval.

"I absolutely love this product," said one repeat buyer. "My eye area is dry, and as I've aged, I have gotten wrinkles and dark circles. This eye cream has worked miracles. My eyes are brighter and the dark circles have lightened. It feels amazing as soon as you apply, giving my eye area lots of moisture. I have tried several eye creams over the years, and this one is by far one of the best."
