Natural Advantage Review

Updated On:

Overview

The Natural Advantage line of products is a skincare system promoted by the English actress Jane Seymour. Jane has partnered with a dermatologist, Dr. Patricia Farris, to produce the Natural Advantage product line. Natural Advantage contains a cleanser, a moisturizer with sunscreen and a night cream. The manufacturer’s philosophy is “pamper and rejuvenate,” which rings of a touchy-feely spa alternative, rather than a scientific, results-based product formulation.

Natural Advantage claims to have a “miracle” edge with their MicroSponge system. The MicroSponge purports to increase the delivery of Retinol through use of the product.

Aside of being a decades-old skin treatment ingredient, Retinol is a fat soluble form of Vitamin A, and there is some evidence linking it to healthy skin. A large number of products that we've looked at contain Retinol, so it's certainly not unique on the market. Evidence also suggests (as does the Natural Advantage official website) that over-use of retinol has been shown to dry out or even irritate the skin, making it important to closely follow the Natural Advantage application directions and monitor your skin for any negative effects.

Retinol is in the family of active ingredients that target cell turnover (especially collagen synthesis) as the best path to rejuvenating appearance, including wrinkle reduction. Natural Advantage is on the right track by focusing on cell renewal, however, there are considerably newer technologies with more benefits. Matrixyl 3000, for example, is a much newer patented active ingredient that accelerates cell renewal, and also stimulates hyaluronic acid and fibronectin synthesis, in addition to significantly accelerated collagen synthesis.

Product Details

The official website claims that the key to this product line is its MicroSponge delivery system, allowing the active ingredient Retinol to be time-released in significant quantities. As we mentioned earlier, Natural Advantage is a three-step process. The first is the Gentle Cleansing Gel, removing makeup, surface oils and dirt. Next is the Moisturizer to be used before leaving for the day. Finally, the Nighttime Renewal Complex leaves the highest concentration of retinol to be absorbed by your skin while you sleep.

The full ingredients in the Natural Advantage nighttime renewal complex are: Water, Capryic/Capric Triglyceride, Emulsifying Wax, Glycerin, C 10-30 Cholesterol/Lanosterol Esters, Cetyl Ricinoleate, Cetyl Alochol, Dimethicone, Benzyl Alcohol, Cyclomethicone, Retinol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Methyl Metacrylate/Glycol, Dimethacrylate, Crosspolymer, Bisabolol, PEG-10 Soya Sterol, Magnesium Aluminium Silicate, Stearic Acid, Methylparaben, Phenoxyethaol, BHT, Disodium, EDTA, Proply Gallate, Polysorbate 20, Triethanolamine.

The Good

  • Product contains Retinol, a dated but effective cellular-renewal ingredient.
  • You can buy directly online and the product can then be shipped to your door.
  • Product comes with a 60 day, no questions money back guarantee.

The Bad

  • No clinical research data on the official website to that show the effectiveness of the formulation or product claims.
  • It seems that there are a number of other products on the market that are more advanced and up to date with the latest, most technologically advanced active ingredients.
  • Too much exposure to the active ingredient Retinol can dry and irritate the skin (according to official website).
  • We have to wonder how much of the consumer price goes to innovative product development versus compensation for a celebrity spokesperson like Jane Seymour.

The Bottom Line

The Natural Advantage line has a lot of competition out there with similar claims. With supermodels and actresses endorsing a new product every month, it is hard to know which are quality products verses marketing flash. Natural Advantage is on the right track by focusing on cell renewal, however Retinol is by no means cutting-edge skincare technology. In our opinion, an informed consumer would rather pay for advanced, highly effective active ingredients rather than a celebrity sponsor.

Natural Advantage

After reading the various views from those who have tried Natural Advantage, I felt I had to voice my opinion as well. First of all, we as consumers are nieve. We think that no matter what the age, we can too look like the movie stars. NOT. They spend their paychecks keeping up their looks with botox, laser surgery, tucks, whatever. WE don't have the money to do it. Personally, I like this product, but I like it, because I have used it long enough to know it works. I am 60 years old and again and again people are floored to learn my age. I don't look glamourus, just young for 60. I don't have crows feet near my eyes and I do have jowls, but who doesn't without surgery. My skin is blemish free adn I'll tell you, when I put on the moisturer, my skins literally drinks it in, it is so soothing. So, what I am trying to say is this, whether you try Brooke Shields product, or This product, try one and stick with it, give it a fair shake. OLAY costs about the same in Walmart, and this is shipped to me when I want it and you know, I am worth it. Don't be raked in by the hype of those that don't even know what its like to try to find a bargain in moisture for skin at Walmart or any other convenience type market. This product works for me and I am sticking with it.

Scam

About a month ago I saw the infomercial for Jane Seymour Natural Advantage facial products. They were having a promo of $29.95 a month and I totally thought that was a great deal. My first 1 month supply came with the following items (note the fl oz size)

2.00 fl oz daily cleansing

0.85 fl oz night cream

0.85 fl oz day cream

Today I just got my 2nd shipment but noticed all the bottles were somewhat bigger and the bill stated that this is a 3 month supply and that they will be charging me 29.95 in June, July and Aug and I'll get my next shipment in Sept. I looked at the bottles and noticed the fl oz...

4.00 fl oz daily cleansing

1.70 fl oz night cream

1.70 fl oz day cream

Ok that doesnt add up to 3 months supply. I would think if this was a 3 month supply and they are charging me 3x29.95 I SHOULD get 3 times the 1 month supply right? How does a 4 fl oz = 2 fl oz x 3????

I called their 800 # and the girl on the phone couldnt explain it to me. I told her then every month I want the "1 mo supply" instead of this so called "3 month supply" being mailed every 3 months! She told me thats not how this works and just fumbled on her words w/ no valid explanations. I'm fuming......guess thats what I get for being a sucker to infomercials. The product works but I dont know if its really worth that amount. Am I wrong for feeling ripped off?

They already charged me for June but said July and Aug payment will be taken out. They said they can refund me the whole amount if I mail items back w/ confirmation of it being sent. Does this seem right?

Purchased 3 months supply hoping this would help some of my wrinkles, but NO, it irritated my skin, it was itching and actually a deep wrinkle appeared that has not been there before, I am returning the $100+ shipment, cannot recommend this! Going back to my regular skin care that helps.

Natural Advantage

I've tried lots of lotions and creams that have claimed dramatic effects. Many have left my face with dry patches and irritated. I've been using Natural Advantage for about 6 months and love it. My face is soft and smooth - a nice texture. I'll continue with Natural Advantage - love it!
