Natural Advantage



Dr. Patricia Farris, a dermatologist, and English actress Jane Seymour have teamed up to create and market Natural Advantage®, a skincare line that relies upon their patented MicroSponge™ system and Retinol. This line is made up of Daily Cleansing Gel, All Day Moisture, Nighttime Renewal Complex and Natural Advantage® Ultimate Hydration. These products can be purchased alone or as a system. However, Retinol tends to dry out skin, and this is an issue many consumers have discussed on forums and blogs, when it comes to this product line. In fact, it is a common issue with Retinol-based products, so some users moved on to use other formulas that provided peptide and Amino Acid-based support instead, which has been shown to be extremely effective, with no downside.

We are so pleased to bring this formula to you and have found that Beenigma is the premium choice among Bee Venom face creams in the entire world. New Zealand, where the premium Beenigma face cream is manufactured - is located in the South Pacific at the bottom of the world. There are very few places on earth offering such unspoiled wilderness and purity in flora and fauna. It is this purity and beauty that inspires the very core of the Beenigma cream. The Beenigma story is a new story with old origins. It began in Auckland, New Zealand where the Beenigma team undertook research into Apitherapy and specifically the use of Bee Venom as a means to fight the signs of aging. It has been discovered that topically applied Bee Venom directly nurtures cell regeneration, assists in collagen formation and even helps in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. The more the Beenigma team learned, the more they were amazed by Bee Venom and its incredible rejuvenating effects. Read a Full review of Beenigma here.

62 Responses to “naturaladvantage”

Sara B.: Jane Seymore is to me one for the most beautiful woman and I would do anything to look like her at 50. Unfortunately I really don’t thing she uses the Natural Advantage cream. I did for awhile and I have to say it was one of the worse creams I have ever used. It does not make the skin firmer or even smoother. Very mediocre product, Can’t believe she will put her name on that stuff.

Stacie: Natural Advantage was pretty bad. But what can you expect. it was Cheap and seemed worth a shot. oh well.


Susan: FYI, if any of you ladies buy the Natural Advantage All Day Moisture and plan on spending any time outdoors, use more sunscreen. It says it has SPF 15, but I still got burnt.

Jenna: So who doesn’t want to be Jane Seymour, right? I mean, especially her hair, which I would kill for, but the skin products? Not so much, I like it that they’re simple, not so many steps for night and day, but unfortunately they do zippo of what they say they’re going to do, and I don’t care if they do call them cosmaceuticals. Not in my book, basically useless, and it must be Jane’s genes, ’cause it’s not Natural Advantage.

Misty V.: HI do you need to use all the Natural Advantage products for them to work?

caroline: The Natural Advantage Ultimate Hydration had an odd texture, almost waxy, it kept feeling like it was being wicked off my skin rather than absorbing. yet it must have gotten in there somehow bcs it clogged my pores and caused whiteheads.

Sherine: I actually liked using the night cream most out of the 3 natural advantage product I got. The texture was great and left like my skin was better in the morning. It does not get rid of the brown spots or fine lines though.

Audrey: I tried Natural Advantage mostly because of the price, el cheapo, which is good right about now, and because they said that there was Retinol in the face cream, but you couldn’t prove it by me. Glad this didn’t cost much because it’s no better than the drug store pickings.

Rose: What is this “micro Sponge Technology system?” what does that mean, and also what are some of the ingredients in Natural Advantage? I like to know that kind of thing before i buy. Any info, would be appreciate.

Shyla: Just began using Natural Advantage last week and my skin is red & flaky. Its not severe, but def not a good look. Is this normal?? Will it go away SOON???

Mary: Misty V. I used all of them and it didn’t work for my lines. Maybe you can just try only one although my advice is try another band.

Grace: I really like to buy the whole package, so when they say, cleanser then moisturizer morning and then the night cream, and you can really get by with something that basic, well I like it, but what I DON’T like is that none of it did much, so it doesn’t matter if it was cheap or not, it should have been free.

Lauren: These Natural Advantage products smell gross, sort of like dead flowers that have been sitting around in a vase too long? Well, that’s the whiff you get when you open a jar of this stuff, and it’s not pretty. Can’t use it, just for that.

Monica: Thanks for the tips I was gonna order, I am glad I read the reviews!

Penny: Well I like the Nighttime Renewal Complex, my skin feels very hydrated, hopefully its preventin the wrinkles.

Ariel: I found a good lip plumper on this site(http://www.besoplex.com/) i prefer it to the entire Seymour line.

bonnie: i thought the All Day Moisture from natural Advantage had SPF, but i wore the stuff for just a few hours and i got a terrilbe sunburn. I feel like this product was somewhat misleading and ineffective.

Judy: The Nighttime renewal Complex felt silky and luxureous. But it didn’t really soften my skin or improve the wrinkles so i give it the thumb down.

mary: The redness and flakiness with Natural Advantage: is it gonna go away? It’s looking pretty darn terrible right now.

Liv: My skin is dry not sensitive & Natural Advantage works pretty good for me. Its not nearly as rough as it was before I started using this.

Jennefer: I got the products for free with my work. Glad I didn’t have to pay for it. The cleansing gel was okay but the creams felt extremely cheap and light. Beside the texure, didn’t see any improvemet on the lines or even the browns spots.

margo: well i do like the cleansing gel, it’s very simple and not pore-clogging. I’m not expecting miracles.

Deanna: Well I think I made the mistake of using too much, I tend to be liberal with lotions, but I am pretty sure it was the retinol that made my skin so red this morning, after apply the renewal complex last night. I’ll try again tonight & see if its any better.

Bailee: Yow, so a lot of people got the red mess that I did? Good to know, actually, because I was thinking I’d have to go to my dermatologist, but if you say it wears off, that’s ok then. I think I’ll just buy a big container of aloe and see if that helps. Natural Advantage should come with a warning label!

BEa: HOWd you get this for free I wanna no what you do for the perks, I don’ think I’d pay for NAturl AdDvangtage again.

Mary: hi, Bailee, I don’t know if you are referring to my earlier post, but I feel like i have to clarify anyway: I did NOT say the redness wears off, i was ASKING if it did! I’m not too happy with how this looks or feels, and now it seems like i am not alone. I hope it wears off but i haven’t seen any indication of that.

Landon: I am not that surprised that Natural Advantage was not a better product line but just the same feel that I have to put my two cents in and warm other women who might be fooled.

Bailee: Oh dear, Mary, you mean it hasn’t worn off? I thought it was in the process of…oh dear, then maybe Aloe’s not going to do it. Do you suppose we could be allergic to this awful stuff? Will we have to take steroids or something? From bad to worse. Let me know how you do, because my face still looks awful, too. Bailee

Janet: In the future I will know not to buy something advertised by a celebrity. MY daughter had bad result with that thing Jessica Simpson sells for acne and I had no results whatsoever with natural advantage.

Corrie: I am looking for a good cream and so thanks for steering me away from natural Advantage. I am glad I did not make that mistake. I need to look better not worse.

Kylie: At first I didn’t realize I was supposed to only use Natural Advantage every other day & I was using it daily with lots of irritations. Then I stopped and it was a little better, not so harsh but after about 2 months of using the system, I didn’t see any real improvements. Smoother, sure, but no better than any other exfoliant. Have been searching for something better, still not sure what works for the wrinkles.

Char: How old is Jane Seymour? I bet she’s had more work done, all the celebs have.

Monique: Was also not terribly impressed with Natural Advantage, I did like the fact that it smoothed my skin but I didn’t feel like it really took care of the deep wrinkles that I expected it to. Maybe the fine lines are a little less but not the wrinkles. I might try Bellaplex next, I read good things about that, maybe its a better bet.

Andrea: The name was misleading, I thought. Natural Advantage didn’t have natural ingredients, it was very drying to my skin in fact, and well, the result was sorta blotchy & unnatural looking. Would not recommmend.

Lori: I tried Natural Advantage and wasn’t impressed. However, with any retinol product you should start slowly using everyother day or so and use sparingly as it can cause the red scaly reaction you are seeing. If you stop using the product it should clear up. You sh

marilyn: I’ve been using Natural advantage since 2001,the nighttime renewal complex,all day moisture,daily cleansing gel,firming & lifting neck treatment & hydrating eye treatment works really good on me.However,the eye serum give me really,really bad rashes,the lip moisturizer doesn’t work as well.

jean: I like the daaily moisturizer the best. It does soften fine lines. You wouldn’t believe the number of compliments I got when I first started usng it!

Rosamund: Natural Advantage is a moisturizer on the same level as something from Target like Olay. acceptable but nothing to write home about. I did not see an improvement or dimishment in the lines around my mouth and eyes which aren’t severe yet but I want to keep them from getting deeper and more pronounced. I was hoping for better since this line seems very clean and scientific but I expect I will be trying another products soon and I hope it works out better.

Gwen: I used Natural Advantage years ago and I had very good results with it. Back then it was not Jane Seymore that was marketing it, it was another celebrity, at that time they offered another product with an ingredient called hydroquine (not sure if that’s the correct spelling of the word)in it worked very well removing age spots and skin discolorations.

Deb: hi Gwen, PLEASE steer clear of Hydroquinone! Studies have found that it increases the RISK OF CANCER!!! It is BANNED in the UK and the US FDA is considering banning it as well. That is likely why Natural Advantage does not use it…you should stop using it straightaway. Regarding Natural Advantage, I find it to be rather mediocre at best, i wasn’t exactly gobsmacked by it. The NIghttime Renewal was all right as a moisturizer but it didn’t deliver any results in terms of wrinkles. I just think this line of products is unimpressive.

ash: I have been using this product for about a year and have stopped having it shipped. I am learning about chemicals in products, and this is definitely not natural. There’s aluminum in the moisturizer. That in and of itself is bad. I also haven’t liked that I can’t use any other products while using this product. I do think my skin feels softer, but I also wish the product helped with blemishes. I think that maybe the women who experience redness might either be using other products as well, or using the retinol product during the day. Sunlight is not good for retinol. I am reading “Gorgeously Green” by Sophie Uliano, and the chemical warnings for skin care, etc. start on page 21. I think it’s important to read this, and you will get advice on companies that make products that truly do not have harmful chemicals. In beauty and health….

Anonymous: I have using natural advantage for 2 weeks not. I like the fact that this product is inexpensive compared to other regimes. I like that it only contains all the products that one needs for a system to be complete, however, after using it for a while I noticed that the wrinkles around my face are getting deeper and my wrinkles seem to be getting longer around my mouth. The skin around my right eye lid is also starting to sag. I thinking maybe something in the product is weighing to heavy on my skin. I don’t know for sure. Has anyone else exprienced this problem?

Barbara: The Natural Advantage Nighttime Renewal has a nice silky texture and absorbs well. I find it to be a good hydrator for dry to combi skins (oily skins might have some issues with breakouts). My issue with this is that it doesn’t seem to be improving my fine lines and wrinkles, not even over time. I had hoped to see some smoothing of these creases and a tightening of my skin’s elasticity, or even just a fading of the crow’s feet. But i haven’t seen anything even after about 3 mos. of use.

Debbie: I’ve been using Natural Advantage for about a year and I really like it! My skin is smoother and more even, and my pores are smaller too. I really see a significant difference. Didn’t really see an improvement in wrinkles, but there’s Botox for that!

Vivian: I have to admit that the first month my face cleared up wonderfully and I have rosea and eczema and the product brought them both under control for that first month. After receiving natural advantage and using the next shipment and the one there after I noticed that I was breaking out in pimples that just didn’t seem to go away and I got concerned and went to my doctor who in turn sent me to a dermatologist. All the “bumps” were surgically removed and biopsied and by the next day I got a frantic call from the derm doctor asking me all kinds of questions regarding my health where upon she had me go back to the hospital for chest xrays and a series of blood and urine work up! She said the “bumps” looked to be a prelude to an autoimmune disease similar to cancer but that the indicator were the mysterious bumps. Thank God all came back negative but she said that from that point on I had to keep a careful watch for more of those bumps and inform all my doctors of her prognosis. Well, as for me I had a sneaky suspicion that the face creams had something to do with it so I quit using them and low and behold, I stopped getting those nasty bumps! I had read that this would happen somewhere as a comment on the internet but didn’t heed the warning thinking this couldn’t happen to me, but guess what it did and I had to go through some scarry moments because of it! Don’t use this natural advantage stuff!!!! If Ms. Seymour was made aware of the problems this product causes I doubt she’d keep endorsing it.

nikki: I believe this natural advantage product is a joke and that it is a waste of your money. I have had nothing but a bad experience with this company!!!

cathrine: I was going to order this product, Glad i read thr reviews. – natural advantage

christine van arsdale: I truly received wonderful results and the products are just wonderful ! I have been in the skincare business since 1985. I am 44 without a wrinkle on my face!!

angel: i’ve been using natural advantage for 2 weeks now. my skin has never been in this condition before. my face and neck are burned from the product; i have small blister over my entire face and neck. my face burns all day and night. it’s now flaking, plus still looks like a severe sunburn. i have never experienced the burning pain i have now. i can’t even go out of the house; i’m to embarassed for the way i look. i pray my face clears up. i’m going in to see my doctor tomorrow (with my face covered)to see what i can do to stop any futher damage to my skin. i did call customer service for natural advantage to ask for help. Jazmine told me this is normal and just keep using the product. what a joke! i pray no permanent damage has been done.

Vera: Natural Advantage, did nothing for me but leave my skin oilier than it already is. I was allergic to the neck firming cream, it burned like crazy so I stopped using it.

Red faced mama: First night Gentle Cleansing Gel,pore minimizer & Nighttime Renewal Complex thought great skin feels so soft and supply, next moringing cleanse, pore minimizer and All Day Moisture. Face getting a little red and blotchly today 3rd day red, blotcing and blistery like pumps. OMG this is awful CSR told me normal NO ITS NOT normal I have used Merle Norman for years and will go back what a mistake. I got sucked into the commercial before and after photos. Will haveto wait forthis to clear up before I go back to Merle Norman I am to embarrassed to admit I could be fooled so easliy. – Natural Advantage

carol: I think the product is great . When I BEGAN TO USE NATURAL ADVANTAGE my skin is great.I have never really had problem with my skin but it just maded it better will continue to use it.LOVE IT

roz: Wished I had read these comments before I purchased the product. Been using the products for 2 weeks now and my face and neck still b*rn when I apply the lotions. And,how do you get them from charging your credit card after you have requsted a cancellation of service?

Dee: I am 50 years old ladies. I have tried EVERY cosmetic line there is. Outside of one very expensive line, Natural Advantage has done o.k. esp. for the price. The toner impresses me the most. My skin tone has evened out but I find I must use the ultimate hydration. In a few weeks of use I don’t think it’s a bad product. It may not be spectacular but they discontinued the best line many years ago, Germaine Monteil. Glad I was blessed with good genes so it doesn’t really matter what I, or anyone else for that matter, uses as long as you keep your skin clean and moisturized and protected from the sun. There is NO magic cure ladies. As most Dermatologists will tell you about aging……look at your relatives first, keep it clean and moisturized with anything and stay out of the sun.

Michelle: This company automatically sent another box of this stuff when I specifically told them I only wanted to try it once and not to sign me up for the automatic monthly service. I called and requested my account be credited and was told it would take 3-4 weeks. When I told them that they had illegally taken money from my account and I would not wait that long for my account to be credited, I was told I could fax a receipt from the post office showing I was returning the product and they would have it in my bank within 24-72 hours and cancel any future shipments. Now, I’m waiting to see if they credit my account.

Kimberly: I love this product. I’ve been using skin care products for 15 years, and I think this works very well. As with most skin care products, one has to use very little. If you use too much you are actually countering the intended effects. With products that contain acids or Rentinal, if you use too much, your skin will dry and even burn. So just follow the instructions exactly. As for the automatic billing and delivery. When you order, they will set you up to automatically receive the product every 3 months and you will be bill monthly. They made if very clear to me. My funds are low these days, so I called and asked them to take me off the automatic delivery (You have to do this in enough time before a delivery is expected so they can organize the account), they stopped it for me. I told them I might be able to continue in January. They are going to send me a reminder by mail. No problem. You just have to ask LOTS of questions when you buy things and WRITE everything down! Anyway, I loooove this stuff! Remember less is more!

susan: i just orded natural advantage i read all the statment i hope it wors for me or i will never beleive in any other product for wrinkles

Sarah: 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!!!

mary: thanks everyone for your comments i was going to order this product but not anymore.

Debra: I used this product for only 3 days & had a severe reaction to it. It is now 1 yr later & the skin around my eyes has permanent damage. I am fighting the company’s insurance co. right now. The label is not clear to the fact that you are not supposed to use the product consecutive days in a row until your skin adjusts to it. I would never have done that otherwise! Retinol should be prescription only!

Samantha: Natural Advantage has been one of the best products I’ve ever used. When being prepped for surgery, the doctor was looking over my chart and back at me and exclaimed, “You’re 58?” I was unsure which way he was going with that so I asked if he thought I was older. Even expecting him to tap-dance a little with his response, he immediately said, “No, I’d have gone at least 10 years younger.” OK, even I wouldn’t have gone with 10 years younger, but when I stopped using it to try another product, I noticed a big difference in my skin tone and texture. When I spend this kind of money on a product, I use it as directed. I came across this blog because I am running out of my “left-over” Natural Advantage and want to re-new my membership. I had been having problems with allergic reactions and it turned out to be an ingredient in all the other cleansers I had been trying. So, Jane Seymour had plastic surgery. That’s because she is so thin. When my mother retired and gained some weight, her loose skin filled in quite nicely. Not an option I want to go with. As for the SPF 15, of course you need additional sun block if you go out in the sun. However, just running errands, a 15 is fine and I fry in the shade. I don’t expect a product to work overnight or even in six weeks. It takes a long time for a product to undo the damage previous products have done. Four years on Natural Advantage has me looking 10 years younger than my baby sister. And, YES, I do believe that you should use a full set of product. Each one is important and you won’t get the results you expect if you just use one part. That is just neglecting all the other parts of the results you expect to see.

Natural Advantage®

“Wisdom comes with age – wrinkles don’t have to” is the tag line of the Natural Advantage® website. This product line was designed by Jane Seymour, an English actress, and Dr. Patricia Farris, a dermatologist. Many consumers may already be familiar with this line, because its infomercials may be seen on a variety TV channels late at night. This line contains a hydrating cream, a cleanser, a daily moisturizer with sunscreen and a night cream. In many ways, it is promoted as being an alternative to a ”spa” experience, due to its use of MicroSponge™ technology and Retinol.

On consumer rating sites, this system usually scores in the middle tier, which means it is tagged as being a moderate performer when it comes to anti-aging results. We do like to look at these sites to see what consumers are finding, but in the end, we like to take a look at a product or a line from multiple perceptives to see what it may be capable of delivering.

 Products at a Glance
The Natural Advantage® product line consists of the following items: Daily Cleansing Gel, All Day Moisture, Nighttime Renewal Complex and Natural Advantage® Ultimate Hydration.

 Products in Focus
While some consumers use some of the products in this line as stand-alone formulas, Natural Advantage® was actually designed to be a system, which has three steps:

• The Gentle Cleansing Gel, which is used to cleanse the skin of makeup, surface oils and dirt.
• All Day Moisture, which is used to keep skin fresh during the day.
• The Nighttime Renewal Complex, which contains a significant amount of Retinol.

Advantage® Ultimate Hydration was recently added to this line as a “bonus.” It is a botanical complex that contains plant extracts, exotic oils and Shea Butter. It was designed to help moisturize user’s skin, but we were surprised that it does not contain Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a naturally occurring element in our skin, which gets depleted overtime. HA is often used in the more sophisticated formulas to help hydrate the skin deep in its matrix, where wrinkles and fine lines form, so the lack of its inclusion in this product may in turn decrease the level or results.

The Natural Advantage® website heavily promotes the use of Retinol in its skincare line, and in fact, Retinol is used in many skincare products. This is an ingredient that has been used for decades to help augment skin health. It is actually a fat soluble type of Vitamin A, which has been linked in some studies as being able to support healthy skin. However, recent studies have suggested that it may well be far more effective in helping address the underlying causes of cellulite, due to its ability to shore up skin structure.

While Retinol may help increase skin structure and perhaps help with cell renewal, it is a rather old fashioned ingredient that may actually cause excessive dryness and perhaps skin irritation if it is over used. This makes following the directions that come with Natural Advantage® very important, because dryness and irritation may sometimes exacerbate aging issues instead of helping them.

• 60-day money-back guarantee may be offered
• Products contain Retinol

• Products do not appear to contain Hyaluronic Acid
• Products may not contain any of the newer and more effective anti-aging elements such as Matrixyl 3000®

 Final Thoughts
Consumers often find the fact that Natural Advantage® contains Retinol to be extremely attractive, because it has a reputation for being able to augment skin cell renewal. While cell renewal is clearly part of the anti-aging equation, Retinol has not been shown to be the most effective choice, contrary to popular belief. While it may be helpful, there may be more effective and up-to-date elements, such as Matrixyl 3000®, available to consumers and developers.

Matrixyl 3000® is a peptide combination, which has been found to be highly effective in increasing Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid production, as well as being able to directly reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Natural Advantage®’s reliance upon Retinol, combined the fact it does not contain some of the more successful anti-aging elements, may be why this product line has been placed in the “moderately effective” category, instead of being rated a “must buy” by consumers on rating sites.
