Review - Nicel Daily Repair Vitamin A Retinol Cream


Daily Repair vitamin A retinol cream smooths facial lines and corrects uneven tone and skin imperfections. Use day or night. This versatile around the clock moisture lock nourishes and softens skin to help prevent future damage $3.79

Their web site announces "Nicel Department Store Quality Skincare products at Amazingly Affordable Prices". Actually I do find this product to be very effective in moisturizing while at the same time diminishing the appearance of fine lines. My skin does feel and appear smoother when I use it. I found this in a Supermarket in the cosmetic aisle. One never knows when you can run into a good deal. For some unknown reason this cream was on sale for $.99 -- that's right. I had never heard of them but thought I can afford to loose a buck if it is useless. It was a real pleasant surprise to have the cream actually work and work well. I went back and scooped up about 3 more of them. It is lucky I did as they never had them again. I think they were pulling in a new brand and had to make room so this went. Luckily I discovered it before it disappeared. Even at the actual price of $3.79 it is a real bargain. It is a reasonable investment considering that it does contain Vitamin A Retinol. It might be just a speck but it is in there.

Yes, that is a big help. I ran out of my supply and I now know where to check for the $1 price tag. Thanks very much.

I just found this in Big Lots yesterday for 1.95, and there were two kinds. I can't remember what the other one was but I think it didn't have retinol but had something like aloe or something (sorry too lazy to check). I bought both. I wasn't sure if they'd work and wanted a quick answer before trying it myself, so thanks a lot for this.

I found this at a Dollar Store, but.. again, I think they were phasing it out. Check the website www.nicel.com. I do plan to order a complete line of their cleansers and moisturizers. I really love this stuff and am looking forward to ordering ALL of their products. Once I do, I plan to review it on my blog. (http://teamwilhite.blogspot.com). Stay tuned for more info. Thanks!

Great, I am glad other people enjoy a bargain in the beauty line. I do admit that I am a cheapskate -- but I have not done a positive review for any of the cheapo items I have bought that were useless or just plain terrible.
I will visit your blog for sure -- I love to see everyone's reviews. Thanks!!

I ran out of my expensive moisturizer and I remebered I bought Nicel from Big Lots. I used it and found it amazing. Works same way as the expensive ones.

I love Nicel'..happy to see I can buy these products online at their website..I live only 20 minutes from Niagara Falls, NY..was surprised to see this company was in my area..I bought Nicel' Renewing Facial Lotion, with 8% Alpha Hydroxy PH3.3 Aloe Enriched 4fl.oz. at Big Lots. I'm very excited, this product really does live up to it's claims..Reduces Lines & Reveals Youthful skin! I'm dissappointed that I don't see this particular product on their website though, but I'm excited to try something simular, along with some of their other products as well.
Very Happy :)

I found this site while looking for more of the Nicel Renewing Facial Lotion that I found at Big Lots and have been using for a couple years. I swear my skin is younger looking due to this product! Alas, as others have mentioned, it does not seem to be available any longer. I too will order from the Nicel website from now on!

I found this at the 99 cents only store. They had several varieties. I ran out of my face cream, so I tried the night cream & am happy with it.

Thanks for posting this review I also found and purchased this product from Big Lots store for about two dollars. I used it the same night after my shower and my skin felt really good in one use and the next morning looked more supple, moisturized and defined so I am just wowed! They only had the Daily Repair which is the one i've would have wanted anyway from what I've seen on their website (I found them online!)I've been using it every day- morning & night & noticing a difference. So i'm really happy!! I did'nt think it'd work this good so i'll be getting more!
Anyway i'm in the process of creating some beauty tips & reviews on my blog as well feel free to subscribe or leave me some comments as well I'd appreciate it, thanks!
