Our Rating


Over the past decade there has been a surge of indie skin care companies who have been putting out some pretty stand up stuff. One such company is Body Merry and today, we’re going to see what all the hype is about with their Surge Retinol Moisturizer.

This moisturizer was formulated to work for most skin types and it’s a stellar choice for those looking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, acne, and anyone who wants to improve your skin’s overall texture and tone. The moisturizer is also gentle enough that you could use it as part of your nightly skin care routine.

What People Are Saying

As wonderful as this product sounds, we wanted to know what actual customers had to say about their experience using the Body Merry Surge Retinol Moisturizer and the overwhelming consensus is positive. Consumers were impressed by how much retinol is in the moisturizer, as other products on the market at a similar price point couldn’t compare.

A few people mentioned they were prescribed medicated creams to treat a myriad of skin conditions but they were able to see better results with the Body Merry Surge Retinol Moisturizer.

Several reviewers mentioned they were in their 40s and they started using this moisturizer to combat the signs of aging. They went on to say that they can use this moisturizer every night and they could see a big difference in the look and feel of their skin.

One reviewer pointed out that the moisturizer uses aloe vera as one of its main ingredients instead of water, which is a great ingredient because it moisturizes and softens the skin without clogging your pores.

Just like everything else in life, we must take the bad with the good. While the vast majority of the reviews for this product were positive, there were some critical reviews from dissatisfied customers. One of the biggest complaints people had about this moisturizer is that the formula seems to have changed.

One woman said when she first started using the product in 2017, it worked wonderfully, however when she repurchased it in 2018, it didn’t work as well. Upon inspection of the ingredient list, she noticed there were new ingredients that wasn’t there before.

She also noticed the retinol had moved from the 7th ingredient down to the 14th spot. When contacting the company, she wasn’t able to get a direct answer. Some of the other complaints people had was that it caused them to breakout only after using the product for a couple of weeks. 

Other customers commented that when they used the cream, their wrinkles were more visible, which is one of the concerns this product is supposed to be able to reduce. Some customers reported a foul smell when opening the bottle. When they contacted customer support, they did receive a full refund as stated in the 90-day 100% money back guarantee.

Our Recommendation

Young Woman Smiling

Proper skin care is extremely important if you want to have radiant, glowing skin. With so many products available on the market that claim to be able to fix all of your skin care problems, it’s understandable to be a little skeptic when trying something new.

The Body Merry Surge Retinol Moisturizer makes claims of being able to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, brighten and tighten, while leaving your skin soft and hydrated. For the most part, this product seems to work very well. The vast majority of consumers who have tried this moisturizer rave about its potency and effectiveness, which is a definite good sign.

Yet, we are a little concerned by the alleged formula change. It’s always baffling when a company will take a product that works well and mess with the ingredients and formulation. Of course, this is all speculation as a representative from Body Merry has never confirmed this change.

With all of this said, we believe that the few people who have left critical reviews are the minority and the problems they experienced may be attributed to receiving a bad batch or they had a bad reaction to one or more of the ingredients, which may seem like the more plausible reason.

If you’re looking for an effective moisturizer that has anti-aging properties and is loaded with natural, high quality ingredients, this is a great option. If you’re someone who has a bad reaction to the chemicals, you can always utilize the money back guarantee. In our opinion, the benefits outweigh the risks and that guarantee is reassurance.
