Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Facial Cream Reviews
A trip to a health shop the other day became responsible for this review on avalon organics vitamin C renewal facial cream.
After trying a bit of the tester cream on my dry hands while I was in the shop, I saw an instant improvement. Vitamin C is great for boosting collagen and new skin cell regeneration, so I thought to give this vitamin C cream a try.
Also, I bought Avalon Organics vitamin C serum to see which works best.
My Personal Take After Use
I have been using Avalon Organics Vitamin C Face Cream for less than a month now. Let me start from its texture.
It’s thick but, surprisingly, it spreads quite fast, absorbs well and it doesn’t leave me with any feeling of oiliness and greasiness.
The smell is citrusy, not chemically unpleasant, and it doesn’t linger.
About the effects of its vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) on my skin, I would say that it is quite effective with forehead fine lines.
It seems to even my skin texture and boost collagen up to a point like improving elasticity and skin plumping.
I am not sure whether this cream can do wonders for mature types of skin. For me, in my 30’s right now, this face cream does have an anti aging effect.
Also, it seems that the quantity will last long as it has a thick texture and you don’t need to use a lot.
During this period, I daily use a good moisturizer and a serum. When I want to offer my skin a light anti aging boost because I don’t really need a strong anti aging product right now, I go for this cream which hasn’t irritated my skin or caused any breakouts.
Let’s have a look at some of this face cream’s features:
- Certified by QAI to NSF/ANSI 305 which is the American National Standard for personal care products that contain organic components.
- 70% organic ingredients.
- 100% vegetable ingredients.
- Free of parabens, synthetic colors or fragrances, harsh preservatives, phthalates and sulfates.
- No testing on animals.
According to Avalon Organics company, their vitamin C cream deeply hydrates, repairs and rejuvenates the skin. It can stimulate elastin and collagen production as well as help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
The vitamin C together with Lemon Bioflavonoids and White Tea relieve oxidative stress and fight photo aging signs. The complexion becomes smoother, supple, more youthful looking and refreshed.

Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Cream Reviews
Users’ reviews vary from very good to neutral, and a few ones that are not so good. Still, the majority of the comments are very positive.
Some users say that this has become their favorite moisturizing cream, competing with more expensive creams.
Even people who have very dry skin report how smooth, flexible and toned their skin feels after using this cream.
Few others, though, have found it a bit drying and irritating.
Highly concentrated vitamin C can cause irritation to sensitive skin or have a drying effect although in this cream we can’t be sure about the percentage of vitamin C.
It is mainly vitamin C serums the ones that contain vitamin C in a higher and more concentrated form.
After trying to dig deeper into the ingredients list, I found out that Sodium Benzoate can also be responsible for skin and eye irritation.
Sodium Benzoate is used as a preservative in foods, too, and only a certain dosage of it is allowed in foods to be considered as safe.
This preservative is used, most probably, in a very small amount in this cream, but for some people, even this small percentage may be irritating since not everybody’s skin reacts the same.
People love the slight citrusy scent of the cream which doesn’t linger. In addition, a few ones have mentioned how this product has helped their skin stay away from blemishes.
In my case, this vitamin C facial cream has not caused any breakouts either.
After trying out and reviewing Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal facial cream, I can say that this is a low priced face cream with natural and organic ingredients that can work well for fine lines, making the skin look more even and toned.
I also think that the antioxidant ingredients it contains could be better preserved if the cream came in a tube.
