    1. you can go to a Walgreens store and buy it there. A 2 oz. jar is around 15-16 dollars. A 6 oz jar is more than $25. I use it, is a little greasy ,but I like that. My skin is so dry if I do not use it. Good luck.

      1. I am wondering about your age. I am 68 and wonder if you are in that ball park. I want to give Eterna a try. Did you like your results? Thanks for your comments.

  1. I have been trying to find Eterna 27 LOTION (not cream, cream is too heavy and greasy) for a few months now. Has Revlon stopped making this product? I hope not, I have been using it for years and it is great!!

  2. Have used this product for 30+
    years, now at age 79. Wonderful useage for me. Lasts
    for long time without losing a
    bit of use or spoiling either.
    Always bought at Longs Drug store, but can’t find it now.
    Where is it available in Santa
    Maria, California or ???.
    Thanks for avail. information.


  4. You can get Eterna 27 at any chain drugstore..This time of year, Dec-Jan., is there promotional time and larger jars are available for the same $ as smaller jars. Have moved to Az. and just started re-using it…Goog on hands too

  5. I have used the regular Externa cream for years,it is affordable and works great as a mosturizer for my sensitive skin, but now I was looking at the other Externa with the Progenitin. Havnt been able to find out much about that ingredient. Can anyone tell me what it is,and would you recommend it over the regular cream with out it?

  6. I bought my first jar of Eterna 27 when I was 27 yrs. old in Munich, Germany. I’ll be 70 next May and not a day or night has gone by without using Eterna 27. This includes mountain treks in Bhutan, Tibet, Pakistan, Turkey, China. Eterna has been with me at 19,000 ft. elevation and at 0 ft. elevations on the oceans of the world. I love it and buy it out whenever I can find it so I know I have reserves.

  7. Well you all apparently didn’t do your home work on Eterna 27 so let me educate you! Revlon developed this product and tried it on women in prisons.It was tested on 1/2 of the face and none on the other 1/2. after a short time the women notices that the 1/2 with Eterna was supple and reduced of many wrinkles and much more supple and youthful. The patent was for 20 years and ran out in the early 1 Eterna actually goes down in to the skin and puts moisture around the cell to plump it up thus reducing wrinkles. In July it always went on sale people use to reserve their jar because we use to sell out. It is truly a wonderful product and your writing does not do Revlon or the product justice and puts the product in a poor light. If your going to critique a product than do your homework. Your lack of information is like telling 1/2 truth’s. So if you are going to attempt to critique someones product don’t bastardize it.

    1. Great Article this product is amazing my Mum and Grandmother told me at the young age of 21 I would not have wrinkles if I used this every night over. light Vitamin C serum or Retinol serum I am 65 and no wrinkles the next person that asks me am I on Botox I will slap them just joking there is nothing on the market at any price like this cream Thankyou for your article.

  8. I used eterna 27 in the 1960s and loved it But when you stop using it I found my skin was much much drier took me some time to get my skin looking the way it was . I started working for Orlane and a lady came to the counter looking for help the problem ? She had used eterna 27 and her skin went the same way . I still use the product but not all the time . I’m now 70 When I could get it I also used the moisture lotion this product is the Tops !!!

  9. I am having a hard time finding Eterna 27 night cream. I mean the one without progenitin. Progenitin does not agree with my skin or else they added more perfume. I want the old night cream back. I used it for many years and now can’t find anything except Eterna 27 with progenitin. Phooey!
