My mom gave me this cream after she tried it and didn't like it. I love it! I use it only at night. It makes the skin under my eyes soft and smoother looking. I have definitely seen a difference around my eyes in terms of fine lines. I am only in my 20s, but I have seen a difference with firmness as well. Since my mom didn't like it, I wouldn't use this as a product to reverse wrinkles, but rather use this to prevent them. Good stuff!
Not a fan. I have been using it about a month with no visible results. It does not appear to be very moisturizing, either. I still have to use my good old Vitamin E cream over it morning and night otherwise every tiny line under my eyes is magnified and my eyes feel tight. Not worth the $20 I paid for this miniscule tube of cream. Might be good for someone in their 20's but no so much for anyone who truly has fine lines around the eyes. Won't be repurchasing but I will finish out the tube I have.
I have used this for 3 months now. Not even a bit of change. Tried it also on my forehead and nothing. I still have a good bit of product left. I paid for and I guess I'll finish it because I prefer not to waste.
I gave it 2 lippies because it does moisturize well.
DON'T BE FOOLED...like I was! I usually love Neutrogena products but this one is not worth it. I bought into the advertising and it being rated well and after I've used it for a month, I got ZILCH! In fact, my wrinkles look worse!
Upon further investigation of the label (which I should have studied more closely in the beginning) there are 2 forms of alcohol as the 6th and 7th ingredient. Retinol is 3rd from the last...which means there's a very small amount in the overall content even though this product is marketed for this purpose. UGH!!!!
I'm chucking this tube!
I'm cautiously optimistic about this product.
I'm 33 and have combination very sensitive skin with very few wrinkles anywhere so far, and as another reviewer said, I'd like to keep it that way. I've noticed that there are small lines that appear around my eyes when I smile and disappear immediately afterwards, but they appear nonetheless.
I've been using this daily at night for about 4 weeks as directed and I haven't noticed any irritation or flakiness, which is a big deal for someone with skin as sensitive as mine. The area under and around my eyes seems better moisturized, firmer, and brighter. This cream doesn't migrate into my eyes, either, even when I use a facial night cream all over my face beforehand.
I am going to edit this review in another 4 weeks to update the results, but so far, so good. Like other people (and my doctor) have said, the key is to keep using the product and not give up. . . which is hard to do when you want instant results.
I'm in my mid 20's and already have rather deep lines under my eye which is the only real sign of real deep wrinkles so I bought the whole range to see if I could get it to help my skin stay reasonably smooth since putting concealer was. more difficult than it had ever been.
I really like this finally after 4 creams with less than perfect results.
After a week I have found that the lines have smoothed out and are not as deep as they were the weekend before and it has not made my under eyes dry and flaky. I really think that this is worth a buy.
If you are more concerned with dry under eyes try simple brand eye cream
update it been a few months now and m amazed at how much better my eyes look now both in wrinkles and surprisingly the darkness as well
I am 55 with not too many wrinkles anywhere, but I want to keep it that way, so I thought I would try this eye cream because of the SA Retinol in it. In the past I have tried many very expensive eye creams and treatments from Skinceuticals, Jan Marini, DDF, and SkinMedica. None of them has done what the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream has done.
My skin is very oily all around my eyes. I'm not sure if this is why the retinol in this product is not causing any irritation, but it could be. And for those ladies who are complaining that the eye cream has left their eyes looking worse - that often happens with a retinol product. But if you persevere through this period (sometimes up to 3 weeks) you will be delighted to see improvements under and around your eye area.
I do not work for Neutrogena or any subsidiary company. Based on the results of this eye cream, tonight I bought the night time face cream in the same line, also with SA Retinol. I use Skinceuticals 1.0 Retinol, so I don't anticipate my skin to become flaky or irritated. I will report back (in a new product review) in a few weeks once I have given the product a fair chance.
I had bad experience with neutrogena brand in past, but decided to give a try again. This experience is not better than the previous ones. It didn't make my fine lines and crow feet less appearant and there is no way that it is rapid! My under eye skin is dry, this cream makes it dryer. There is no moisturizing effect and I didn't notice any antiaging effect either.However I do think that it is good for hot summer and for those who have extremely oily skin ( if it can be under eyes). I am completely disappointed with this brand and not going to use any more. Plus, I bought it for 22$ which is expensive for drugstore, I think.
BEFORE I used this product my eyes were a little dry underneath with of course the the wrinkles..which is why i bought the product. I did not have the darkness or puffy problem, just a little dryness & wrinkles. Now, AFTER using this product for only 4 days, i seem to have DEEP wrinkles and EXTREME dryness and now my eyes are VERY PUFFY! Now I have more of a problem before I started using it!! Now I just do not know what to use! Has anyone had the problem using this then having extreme dry, almost flakiness along with deeper wrinkles and puffiness???
I will NOT use it again. :-( Usually love Neutrogena products. Not this time.
I've only been using this a little while but I think I"m seeing a difference. I don't really have a lot of wrinkles YET but i'm trying to do prevention on my under and sides of my eyes (the only place I'm starting to see lines)...this stuff is light and sinks in quick.
