I love organic products and have tried so many. Avalon is pretty much my fav brand, considering the price and quality I get, it's quite good.
CoQ10 cream is one of the best products from this brand, I like it better than the serum one. It doesn't feel heavy or sticky and it has a light earthy scent which I like. After apply, I feel like it sinks into my skin almost immediately. I like to use it mostly at night. when I wake up my face is plumped up and felt very soft like a baby!! I recommended my friends to use it and they loved it also. I got mine for almost half a price from iherb website. With the code HEP418, you'll get 5$ off your first purchase, and 10$ off if you buy more than 40$. If you try I hope you like it like I do.

Unfortunately i won't be buying this again. I have rosacea and apparently Q10 is significant amounts irritates rosacea. I came to find this out the first time I applied this on my skin. My face was beet red, literally, and on fire within 5 minutes. I can't knock it down for my quirky skin as it might work well with normal/combo skin. :-( I so wanted to like it too.

Great all natural option! I love Q10 products, they always work well for me. Moisturizing without being greasy and comes in a convenient pump. Also great price!

I haven't written reviews in a while but I had to share my experience with this awesome moisturizer! It's nourishing/moisturizing yet quite light...just melts like butter into my skin. Smells like lavender/herbs without being too overpowering, and comes in a very hygienic pump that dispenses just the right amount. My combination-dehydrated skins feels very comfortable every time I apply this lovely cream... I've never had such great results even with expensive dept store brands, so was very pleasantly surprised when this brand delivered much more than expected. It's a bit light for me in the harsh dry winter...but that's when I use the slightly richer night version. Complete HG material -- so excited I found it!! I will repurchase it over and over and hope it won't get discontinued. :)

I HATE to write this review and bring down the very high rating for this product. I like this company and many of its products, but this cream was just terrible for my skin. Within days of using it alone every morning, I had random medium-sized zits appear here and there, my fine lines actually deepened, my skin felt sensitive for no good reason, I got whiteheads, and my complexion took on a "dull" look. Totally the opposite of what I was expecting! I didn't have an allergic reaction (I don't have sensitive skin) but my face just didn't like this stuff. Also, it was one of those weird creams that felt like it stayed in my skin even after thorough washing, if that makes any sense...almost like a waxy residue had settled into my pores and wouldn't wash out. It's like it bonds to your skin or something. I've used many many many high and low end creams in my time, and only a few have wrecked my skin the way this one did. And I have no idea why! Anyway, it smells good, spreads easily and has great packaging. Maybe you should try it--but be sure to save your receipt just in case.

UPDATE: This is fabulous! I am using it every day. I think it's made a really positive difference! I use 3 pumps in the AM on my face and neck. BTW I don't see a category for the CoQ10 Wrinkle Defense Night Cream, but it's amazing too! If I could review it, it would receive a 5 lippie from me, too!
This is working wonderfully on my skin! I feel moisturized, but not greasy, soft but not slippery and my makeup glides on like a dream. I purchased mine from VitaCost and it was in the $15 area. A definite keeper, if you are like me, and don't think magic arrives in a $100 jar.

Trying to find something that actually provides a noticeable difference; my skin looks amazing in the morning and it feels quenched all day. Wow.

Recently, I've been trying to buy products that have a low toxicity rating from the Skin Deep website. I found this moisturizer at my Rite Aid and thought I'd give it a try. I've been using it for about a month and it's a good basic moisturizer that doesn't break me out. I love the fact that it's in a pump (so it's very hygenic). However, I will not be buying it again. For one thing, the smell. It is VERY strong to me - like bug spray - and it really irritates my allergies. Also, I haven't noticed any dramatic changes to my skin tone or texture since using it (which is true of most skin care products but if I'm going to spend the money, I want results). A good, not a great, product.

Love it. So many good things about it. Smells great, not too heavy, Like the pump. Overall great product.

This is such a great moisturizer. It goes on really light and doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy at all. I have pretty sensitive skin, but I haven't had any issues with this moisturizer. I'm really loving it. I just wish it had spf included in it. I just add spf on top of this lotion.

This feels lovely on my skin, sinks in, feels moisturizing but not too much, & the price is great at Vitacost. BUT, it makes my skin break out. I have sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts, & this caused pimples overnight. For reference though, it's really rare for me to find a non-irritating moisturizer for my skin. The search continues...

Great moisturizer for me. I've been using it for just about one month now and have definitely noticed a change in my skin. My fine lines are less noticeable and my face just looks refreshed. I use a lot of this at each application because I have dry skin, but it always moiturizes enough. Lastly, that pump tube is fantastic!

I have been using this serum for 1 week now (a.m. and p.m.) and I don't know if it is coincidence, but I swear my fine lines under and on the outside of my eyes have gotten smaller. The first couple of times I used it, I noticed that it kinda burned and made my skin feel like it was tightening. I guess I have gotten used to it b/c now I don't even know I'm wearing it. It is expensive for a small bottle, but as long as I keep seeing results I will keep buying it.

I use this cream along with Avalon's COQ10 serum for my daytime skincare. The cream is very light and dries quickly. I love both of the COQ10 products.
I spend a lot of time outdoors. The COQ10 does not have SPF protection. Because of that I add Neutragena's Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkle SPF 20 for the sun protection I need.

This cream indeed works! The previous reviews are true.

Wow, this is a wonderful moisturizer! I have been using the day and night cream for 2 weeks now, it goes on nice and light and soaks in, but is hydrating enough for my dry skin in California summer. It smells like essential oils but the smell goes away fast. I have noticed an improvement in my skin's texture and possibly even the lines near my eyes, just in this short time! I am using it with MyChelle Perfect C Serum. The combo of the C serum and the CoQ10 cream has been fantastic for my skin! Update: still using it after about a year - I love it, it's perfect.

WOW! I started using this cream about 4 weeks ago. I have always been hesitant to use a nightly moisturizer because of my nasty adult acne - I usually just use a perscription acne treatment at night. However I am 32 so I have been trying to find a lotion that I can use for wrinkle prevention. I used to work at Whole Foods years ago and I remember someone telling me when this line came out that an added bonus was that it is actually good for acne. It's true! My skin looks AWESOME! I am SO happy with this product. I even stopped using the acne treatment at night (still use in morning though - it's a strong exfoliant so I figure it's good for wrinkle prevention). My skin looks smooth and plump, and it's the clearest it's been in ages. I even stopped wearing foundation everyday which is huge for me. I have NO idea how COQ10 works, but I am now a devoted fan of this line. It's in a pump, it absorbs easily (I finally got used to the smell and now I like it), and over time it makes your skin glowy and clear. Official ALL TIME HG MOISTURIZER! As I finish up my other products, I will replace with the COQ10 line. I know I sound like a raving maniac, but you know that feeling when you find that product that fixes your biggest-bummer skin problems? My only regret is that I passed this product up so many times over the years.

In pump form, I purchased the night cream, which pretty much has the same ingredients with a faint lavender scent. I like it because i feel it's almost like aromatherapy for nightime that helps me fall asleep faster. It definitely absorbs very quickly and leaves no greasy film. It is light, moisturizes just the right amount, and to boot, it's all natural with no parabens. Will buy again.

I've been using this cream for years and love it. It doesn't make my face feel oily like some face creams do. My skin feels balanced and moisturized all day.

This stuff is such a great moisturizer. It's not the slightest bit greasy and leaves my super sensitive skin soothed and baby soft. I dont have many wrinkles so I cant comment on how effective it is on those.
