The Natural Advantage skin care system consists of three core products, formulated to work together in order to offer users a comprehensive wrinkle fighting regimen. The Natural Advantage products came about when the award winning English actress Jane Seymour partnered up with the prominent dermatologist Dr. Patricia Farris. The result of this collaboration is a skin care system based largely on “pampering” your skin. In fact, it seems that the makers of Natural Advantage see their products as a combination between luxury skin lotions and clinical, anti-wrinkle creams. But how does it all work out in real life?

The Natural Advantage system claims that what really sets it apart from rival skin treatments is the product’s “MicroSponge” delivery system. The manufacturer claims that this allows them to pack more retinol into their creams and lotions. Retinol is the primary active ingredient found in Natural Advantage. Retinol is a fat-soluble form of Vitamin A, meaning that it is a fairly strong antioxidant. It is a fairly common ingredient found in anti-wrinkle products. This explains why Natural Advantage developed their MicroSponge system to set their products apart. Unfortunately, little information is given on the official website about how this MicroSponge system actually works, or on how it was developed and tested.

Product Details

Natural Advantage is a three-part beauty care regimen. The full system consists of a cleanser, a moisturizer and a night cream. The Natural Advantage moisturizer is meant to be applied before leaving the house in the morning and again in the evenings, and it includes an SPF of 15. First use the cleanser to remove makeup and other oily build-up. Follow that with an application of the moisturizer. The Nighttime Renewal Complex is where most of the system’s retinol is to be found and, as the product name implies, this cream should be applied before bedtime so that the ingredients can be absorbed by the user’s skin. Natural Advantage strongly cautions against over-applying the Nighttime Renewal Complex since too much retinol has been known to dry out skin.

The full list of ingredients in the Natural Advantage Nighttime Renewal Complex is as follows: 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

  • Free gift when purchasing products from official website.
  • Products include SPF.
  • Before/after photos can be found on official website.

The Bad

  • Overuse of retinol has been shown to dry out skin.
  • Three step regimen could be expensive and time consuming.
  • Little information is given on patented “MicroSponge” technology.
  • Product does not seem to be available from any retail locations.

The Bottom Line

We certainly appreciate that Jane Seymour took the time to bring us the Natural Advantage line of products. However, we’d like to know a bit more about their “MicroSponge” system. Today there is a very crowded market for no-surgery wrinkle reduction treatments, and a manufacturer really has to highlight what sets their product apart from the pack. Retinol is a fairly common ingredient, and we would have liked to see the claims made by Natural Advantage backed up by some product testing and development info.

    I hated Natural Advantage at first. I have dry skin and it was drier and blotchy. A month or so later I started to use just the AM and PM creams and I have really noticed a difference in my skin. Now I love the stuff. My sister told me that I look 10 yrs younger.

    I’ve been using the product for 3 months and having problems-I have MORE wrinkles and cottage cheese skin than before!!! Maybe its the retinol? Teresa, did you mean you stopped using the toner and cleanser?? I’m curious to know how you turned it around. It is expensive and I have an unused shipment sitting here.

    This stuff feels weird. I’ve been using it since 7/1/10, and it’s now 7/9/10. It’s kind of sulphur smelling reminiscent of the junk I had to use as a teenager. The daytime moisture is not fragrance free. It too smells “sulphury”. The question is when am I supposed to see results?

    I like the product, but have been billed monthly (2 months) for products that I have never received.
    I sent an email to the customer service department and have given them one week to resolve the issue.
    According to the BBB and other sites this has happened to a number of customers.
    Make sure to track your credit card billing statements and if you receive the products in the mail.

    I used natural advantage in 2007 and it was horrible! I was 27 at the time and wanted to find a product that helped reduce the appearance of my pores and a few fine lines in my face…I ended up with really deep wrinkles in my forehead and around my eyes. I would definitely not recommend this product to anyone. I called the company and told them and they were rude and said they have no complaints about there product which I highly doubt. The only good thing that came out of this is that I got my money back. NEVER USE NATURAL ADVANTAGE!!!!!!

    I’m 48 now and have used Natural Advantage for a couple years and have been pleasantly surprised and excited at the results. You can’t beat it for the price!!! There are other products that produce great results too but for triple the price. I’ve tried many of them over the last 10 years. Keep in mind, everyone is different and there is not one product in this world that will work for EVERYONE. Keep this in mind when reading reviews. I’ve been downright GIDDY with my results, it’s taken YEARS off my face. I live in McKinney TX on Burton Lane, have one daughter and am a real living human being submitting an honest review on a product that I believe deserves it. Also, I only use the AM and PM lotions per the directions in combo. If you only use one and not the other, you won’t get the same results. I’m glad I gave Natural Advantage a chance. You might be too. Best of luck!

    I used this product for close to a year, having the cost debited from my credit car. IT DOES NOT work any better than drug store brands available locally. The problem- when I cancel my subscription, I was told fine- now there is another monthly charge. Customer service is telling me, a month later that there is another charge. They insist that I must return, at my expense any unused product which I received over a month ago.
    Do not buy from this company- product is average, but good but way overpriced!!!!!

    You never have to keep product. Just don’t open productand write on package refused return to sender. I have done that many times and was credited for returned product. But never never open it or you have to pay return shipping.

    I don’t ever order products on TV infomercials because I have heard horror stories of people being taken to the bank by these companies. However, I respect Jane Seymour, so I gave this product a shot. I ordered what I thought was the 30-day supply for 36 dollars. NOWHERE online did it say I was going to be responsible for paying more for this first shipment. I didn’t see a significant difference in my skin, so called to cancel future orders. Again, nothing was mentioned about me needing to pay additional amounts. THEN, I received a bill in the mail for 73.30?? I figured it was a mistake, so called the number listed. NOPE, they tell me that my initial order was actually a 90-day supply, so I still owed them this much for that first shipment. I told her that I NEVER saw that I would owe additional for this first shipment and would not have agreed to pay over 100 dollars for a product sight unseen. Her response “well, that’s not how I read it.” Basically, “too bad for you!” I could tell this was not the first time she had received this complaint. Called Natural Advantage customer service and he talked to me unenthusiastically briefly before hanging up on me!! Excellent customer service?? I think not!! I wonder if Jane Seymour is aware of what kind of a company she is putting her name on? BUYER BEWARE!!!

    I just had the same thing happen to me. I agreed to by a promotion of a 3 month supply for $39.95 and now they are billing me 3 more months at $39.95. I am angry. That is not what I signed up for, but did not keep my order after receiving the package. Again, customer service is no good. It is going back. I would NEVER spend that much for a product. Beware!

    Have used Natural Advantage for 1 month. Used the second of three peel packets according to instructions, and received a red, blistering, itchy rash on my lower neck area. Works for face but fear using it for more irration.

    I love Natural Advantage. It’s convenient – comes right to my door, debits from my account automatically. It doesn’t take longer to use than any other combination of products! Wash, tone, moisturize. My skin looks softer, smoother, my eye wrinkles are less noticeable, and my sisters tell me my face looks a lot younger (I’ll be 47 in a few months). I also like that I can change the products and the number of items I receive just by calling the toll free number. I’ve never been billed for products I did not order and have never had a debit I didn’t authorize. It doesn’t smell bad to ME, all the products, and the cleanser in particular, smells clean & fresh. The moisturizers smell a bit lemony. Follow the directions & do not use the night cream around the eyes or on the neck. Fine wrinkles will look worse due to the drying nature of the cream. I purchased the Eye cream after my free gift of it ran out and I use the Neck cream too, which I use before bed and use the night cream everywhere else. I’m a Natural Advantage user for life. If you try it, give it a month or so – you will come to love it.

    I love Natural Advantage. It’s so convenient – I never have skin care products on my shopping list anymore. I call the toll free number and tell them how many & which products I want in my next shipment & I’ve never been charged for products I did not order. The products smell clean & fresh, especially the cleanser. The Daily Moisturizer smells a little like sunscreen, the Nighttime Renewal Complex smells lemony. Follow the directions & do not use the night cream around your eyes or on your neck. It makes wrinkles look worse due to the drying nature of the Nighttime Complex. I received a small Eye Cream as a free gift and I ordered a full size when it was gone. I also use the Neck Treatment cream which feels awesome. My sisters all told me I look years younger (I’m nearly 47) & my face feels smoother, softer, & more supple. I’m a Natural Advantage user for life.

    I love, love, love Natural Advantage! I have been using this skin care treatment for almost one year now and the over-all appearance of my skin has noticeably improved. My skin feels energized and the fine lines and pores are less defined. I have never had a bad experience with customer service. In fact, each rep I have spoken to has always been very pleasant and accommodating. When there was a mix-up in one of my orders, they rushed the items to me that were mistakenly omitted in the original order for free! They apologized over and over to me and suggested a way to customize my future orders. I know of no other skin care products that are so affordable to the average person and so convenient. They are delivered to your door in the time-frame you choose.

    I have been using Natural Advantage for about 5 years and love it. I am 59 and have no wrinkles. I do not use the night cream on my kneck – too harsh. I have tried other brands – this really works for me.

    I like the product, but I have been billed monthly (1 month) for products that I have never received. I will appreciate for you not to send me products because I’m not interested in receiving anymore of those products and since I didn’t receive the products that you took the money out of my account for I’ll appreciate if you put the money back in my account or else I will have to take further actions on this situation.

    Thanks

    Do not buy product. It is a SCAM. They charge you for trial product then keep billing your checking account every month. Will not let you speak to executives of the company

    I have been using it for 2 years now. It doesn’t take anymore time then usual to use. The face wash is excellent. It leaves my face soft after washing, not tight and dry. Following the directions of the 3 steps as stated, it works great. I also recommend purchasing the eye cream and the skin toner. I am 45 and look and feel great.

    They do need to be more clear on the price. Although if one would read they would know. This is on the item description when you add the item to your cart.

    I ordered the product nearly a month ago. For the record, I have always spent top dollar for my skincare ($100 per product) and skin treatments. It is CLEAR as day when you order that if you do not cancel within the cancellation period, you will continue to receive shipments. Regardless, I am happy with the PM cream. I do not care for the cleanser (too drying) or the day cream (to sun screeny) so need to call and see if I can supliment with other products rather than continue to receive those I do not care for. Using the nightcream however, has left my skin extremely soft and I actually think is making a difference. Like I said…I live in California, and spend a mint on beauty regime and have sensitive skin, so I am going to continue to use this product for now.

    Why the disappearing products I liked…ultimate hydration night cream… using just retinol dries my skin… products were working well for me… I’m 62. Girls I work with were willing to bet late 40s. At least replace it with a better product…Just gone……….
