    Great product, works very well.

    Vickie Smith

    I initially received the sample kit and fell in love with the products so I ordered the full size items, the cleanser, moisturizer and retinol treatment. Everything was going pretty good but I think I used too much retinol cream and it made my face really rough, so I had to stop using the retinol for a while and I went back and gave it a second chance but I used just a small amount and it is working great and my skin is starting to glow a bit again. Will continue to use the products. Thanks Riversol!

    No change wt retinol

    I do love the Riversol product line. And I had high hopes the retinol and serum combo, after 2 months, would lighten my sun/age spots on my face. They did not. It may be too late for any product to hel, as I started this regime later in my life (53).

    I will stick with it. I love the moisturizers and the travel size options!

    No bad feelings. There are no guarantees.
