LOVE IT! This was the first retinol product I bought, and I was really afraid it would dry my skin out. But no! Over a few days, my skin just got softer and softer, and it previously was extremely rough. I love this and will definitely buy it again.
I don't have wrinkles, lol, I purchased this product by accident, I was looking for a different healthy skin lotion, but I thought I'd give it a try, it's a WONDERFUL light moisturizer, I have slightly dry skin, and it works really well for me, sometimes I need a little extra moisture so I just use a heavier lotion. I took one lippie off because I don't know about the anti wrinkle effects, but it's great as a light moisturizer. Also I don't know how I feel about the packaging, I like it for use, but I think mine is separating and I can't shake it or anything because of the packaging.
This is my HG of facail anti-aging/moisturizing products. I keep coming back to it over and over so I need to just quit thinking there is something better out there, because there isn't. The packinging is sanitary and the price is very reasonable. I've even turned my no-maintenance friend onto this one and she swears by it, too. I only use the one w/SPF (wish it had a 30 rather than 15). At night, I use my Olay Regenerist on top and add some Avon Renew Vitamin C serum. If I ever need extra moisture I just use my emu oil on top and around my eyes. I use this product in the eye area and have had no irritation because it soaks in quickly and doesn't run into my eyes. It is great during humid weather and causes no breakouts. It is NEVER greasy unlike the lotion counterpart. It's great for lips,too.
I'm a huge fan of Neutrogena products, and this one is by far my most favorite. I use it as my p.m. moisturizer YEAR ROUND (can't say that about many products). A pearl-drop does the trick. If you're noticing that you're breaking out within the first week of use, KEEP USING IT! This is evidence that it's cleaning up your skin. Ever heard the saying "It'll get worse before it gets better?" Well, that's exactly how any good retinol treatment will work. After two weeks you'll notice amazing improvements in your skin's texture and moisture level. Won't make you more oily... just balanced. Treats your skins from the inside out.
oh blech...i wanted to love this but it broke me out so badly..with huge, cystic like zits...and I dont easily break out...returning this today..will not rebuy....on a positive note, the Rapid Clear lotion rocks.
My skin is dry and sensitive, and very pale. I used to tan in the sun, but no longer (now I self-tan). I have some fine lines on my forehead, and around my eyes and the sides of my mouth. This product from Neutrogena has definitely "eased" the depth and length of the lines! I also like that it can be purchased at virtually any drugstore or supermarket; whenever I need a new tube, someone has it on sale! I've used this for years, and hope Neutrogena never discontinues it!
i love this cream. i use it every day, sometimes twice a day after washing my face. my boyfriend stole mine, so i had to buy him his own and he loves it. i notice a difference in how his skin looks (he's 30). he has really good skin, but was getting insecure about tiny wrinkles around his eyes. he's almost done with his tube, and his lines are much softer, almost indescernible. they weren't bad to begin with, but he swears by it and wants to buy another tube already. i love how it makes my skin feel so soft, and it sinks in so nicely with no dryness.
i use the SPF version. and i must say, this is my HG of skin treatments. LOVE IT!!!!!! moisturizes and smoothes, i've had no redness or irritation or acne. i've used this for years! in winter, i may have to spot-treat for some dryness on my forehead or chin. i've been nothing less than delighted with this!
I purchased this Retinol and vitamins cream 2 days ago and although it is early for me to report on whether or not it smoothes the fine lines around my eyes and mouth, I feel compelled to rave about it! This cream is not fragranced and it is very silky; all you need for your entire face are 2 pea-sized drops of it. When I first put it on, my skin did not tingle but it did become red (I use this at night by the way) as the packaging predicted, but, to my surprise, the redness was short-lived. The cream absorbs quickly and thouroghly and it feels comfortable on the skin, though it is not very mositurizing, which is why I use this in conjunction with the (new) Avon Replenish Night Cream, which is highly humectant and formulated for mature skin with collagen and elastin. In any case, when I woke this morning, my skin was soft and dewy and even toned, no redness, so splotches. My son commented on how dewy my skin looked! I think I am hooked, I am happy I purchased it and I have read many rave reviews of this product online. I will write an update in a bit, concerning the wrinkle-banishing power of the cream.
This is a great retinol product with other fab ingredients as well. It has a matte finish and s silky to apply. It doesn't make me break out and improves the tone and look of my skin. Yay!
