The one thing I found funny is the women under 30 are using this. It is for wrinkles. I don't think it was designed for the youthful and non-dry acne prone skin of an adolescent and young adult. I believe this was designed for women over 40. I like this and I believe it has smoothed the wrinkling on the lip and marionette lines as well as making the frown lines a bit less deep. It isn't botox but works at least as well as any other product. I have been using it for 4 months now. I also believe my skin is less blotchy as I use over my cheeks as well not just the wrinkled areas. The one thing I don't like about it is the packaging. There is a lot left in the bottom when the pump no longer work to get at this. You have to take the cap off and you will get another week or so out of bottle. I am on my third bottle of this stuff. I will continue until I hear hype on another product.

The first thing that struck me was the scent - reminds me faintly of violets. I have used Retin-A and Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Intensive Night Cream with success for years, so I don't know why I thought I needed another retinol cream. Perhaps the name hooked me and reeled me in! This didn't do anything for me, but is is somewhat moisturizing so might work better foryou if you are on the dry side and not allergic to fragrance in your treatment products. I using up the bottle on my hands and feet, but will not repurchase.

after graduating from college, i noticed that my skin was really showing the effects of sleep deprivation, stress, and poor diet. in addition to cleaning up my act a bit, i started using this little drugstore gem. i don't believe in miracles, and i certainly don't expect them from my skincare...but this is about as close as it gets! the fine lines around my eyes are GONE. forehead wrinkles - diminished. i no longer look like i'm nursing a chronic hangover. and as an added benefit, i think this product has improved my adult acne. i'm 27 and my skin looks like it did when i was 22. this is a great buy and i'll definitely purchase more when i run out.

So I have returned to amend my review because it turns out this stuff rocks. My forehead creases are insanely improved, some of them are almost completely gone.
To be fair I have been using this during the day instead of at night because I've been doing the Olay 14 Day Treatment so it is possible it was the combined effort of both products... But I think it was the neutrogena.
I have been using this for a week now and either I had expectations that were too high or I'm just not that impressed.
I will come back and update after it has been two weeks but so far I have seen minimization of the teeniest of my forehead lines. I don't have lines anywhere else but I have had these forehead lines since my early twenties - it's just a thing in my family. I want them to die.
The lines closest to my hairline have definitely faded but the deeper ones look about the same. I have not had any peeling which disappoints me as I was hoping for a nice exfoliating effect.
I am also not seeing any overall face benefits but to be fair I am in the middle of the worst breakout I have ever had thanks to removing my make up with a Charmin Fresh Wipe... I don't recommend trying that, by the way. So, it is possible the fact that I am broken out like a teenager is distracting me from this being awesome.
As of right now I am only giving it a 3... but that could change. The scent is strong so if you are bothered by strong scents you may want to skip this.

Wow! Lines on forehead minimized, lines around eyes greatly improved, and the lines around my lips are improved!!! This is the first wrinkle product I've used that has delivered on it's promises.

I'm a little confused by the poster who said this and the other Neutrogena face cream had the same ingredients. I pulled them both up and compared ingredients side by side. They aren't identical.

I have bought this product along with it's day version so it's really hard for me to distinguish which one did what but these are my observations (I have some wrinkles on my forehead but I've been applying both all over my face):
1 week later the skin on my forehead is peeling a little bit; but as others said it's not unusual and is also mentioned on the packaging.
My wrinkles seem to be smoothed out a tiny bit on some days (do I frown at night?!:))
After using the day version in the morning, I applied the new clinique tinted moisturiser and somehow I had a redness and burning on my cheeks- when I removed it using thermal water, the skin was fine. Some weird reaction between those products??
Finally, like someone already mentioned, I also got a weird (not sure if allergic) reaction under my eyes, the skin went really red and dry, I looked like zorro :S - I wonder whether it would have happened if I used the eye version.
All in all, I am a believer and going to use this, although only on my forehead!!

I'm only twenty, so I'm just using this product to prevent wrinkles and fix some fine lines around my eyes and on my forehead. So far, it seems to be working well- no miracles yet, but no redness or irritation, and some minor blemishes and scarring have disappeared, which is nice. I had some acne scars that have faded, and I think my skin seems clearer. I did break out a little around my jaw, but this has happened when I'm using other face creams, so I'm not sure if it is just the retinol, or the actual product. I also don't have a lot of wrinkles, since I'm only twenty, so I'm not sure if this product is actually good for anti-aging. I just know its cleared up my skin and isn't too irritating, and hopefully will prevent wrinkles in the future.

I'm so sorry to be the party-pooper here, but this did not work for me at all. This was on sale at my local Walgreens for $16 and, after reading all the rave reviews, I decided to try it. I used it for about 5-6 days, day and night. It slightly improved the wrinkles on my forehead, except for my "11" between the brows. Then again, those are deep as etchings so I don't know if I should totally blame the product. Caulking would be more indicated for the bastards.
What I did get from this product was a harsh allergic reaction on the skin under my eyes, which made it look drier and more wrinkled than before.
I can't be so egocentric as to bash this product just because it did not work for ME. The reviews in this website alone are more than proof that it works very well for a lot of people. I think my skin does get along with Retinol. I have no problem with other ingredients, but my skin does not like this one. Because of that, I gave it 3 lippies, but I will not tell people not to buy it. Just be careful if, like me, Retinol is too harsh for you. I exchanged this for something else.

I started using this exactly 17 days ago. I am in my late-twenties and I apply it under my eyes, around my mouth and over the middle part of my forehead where I'd started seeing mild frown lines.
Today I looked in a 15x mirror at my forehead and I was just blown away. The middle of my forehead looks so beautifully smooth that the skin immediately around it (where I don't use this product) looks older by comparison. I'm a believer.
I haven't noticed any sensitivity with this stuff after the first couple days- when I felt a slight tingle at use. I generally apply it right after I shower at night. After 5-10 minutes I follow-up with my usual moisturizer.
I haven't had any breakouts or adverse reaction to it so far.

This stuff is the beat I have used so far. It has been making short work of my forehead lines and is making my skin smoother. I did have some peeling, but I am told the same thing happens with retinol you get from the dermatologist. It is your skin being stimulated to slough off skin and repair itself. The eye version works well also.

I bought this product a week ago, and I had a LARGE wrinkle on the top of my forehead from a sun burn I got 2 years ago. After a few DAYS it's almost gone completly. I also had fine smile lines and those were very smoothed out.
It gives my face a beautiful glow and evens out the bit of redness I have on my cheeks, and makes my skin VERY soft and healthy.
I LOVE the product to pieces and can't wait to see what else it will do for me.

So far so good with this, this is actually the first wrinkle product that i really notice a difference, i will be turning 40 next week, and with this i definately have smoothed some of my lines. Can't fight all of my aging, but certainly is great when people tell me i look no where near fourty.

Best treatment I've used...and boy have I used many! This leaves me face smoother, even, and makes me glow!

While I do like this product, and the results, I wanted to let you all know that it is the exact same thing as the "Ageless Intensives" anti-wrinkle, deep wrinkle, night moisturizer. I bought this one at Ulta and when I received a $5.00 coupon I decided to buy a back-up. They were out of it so I got the AI and decided to call the company. The rep confirmed that it is the same, except, of course, that you get less product....800/582-4048

I've been using this for a few days now, and I'm already impressed. Every morning I wake up with a glow. I'm not using this for the wrinkle reduction; I got this because I wanted a retinol product for my hyperpigmentation. I have a few acne discolorations, and this product is already helping it fade. To my surprise, it even helped me with some large pimples that have not been going away for a couple of weeks. The price is amazing, and the packaging is super sleek. I love this and will update in a few weeks.
UPDATE (12/2011): I had to stop using this because it broke me out. I even got large, almost cystic-type of acne. I even tried to use it again a couple of times. It's too bad because it seemed to work. However, I'm not docking any lippies just b/c I may be allergic to one of the ingredients- it may be good for someone else.

I have been using this product for a week, and I thought I could write a review already since the product claims to get rid of fine lines within a week. Well...the wrinkles on my forehead are pretty much gone! I know people are probably thinking, "23 year olds don't have wrinkles!" Well, I do. I seem to age fast. I've been getting more and more gray hairs since I was 18, and I've been getting deeper and deeper wrinkles on my forehead for the past couple years. I can probably blame stress, but most definitely tanning, and not wearing sunscreen. So I'm not just talking about a couple fine vanity lines, I'm talking about deep wrinkles on my forehead, and they're almost gone after a week of using this, that's amazing! I did get a burning feeling, and I do still get peeling skin from using this. I want to get the day moisturizer (it has sunscreen!) that goes with this, and the eye cream (I'm getting deepwrinkles there now as well). One thing I did notice though, is that when I wake up in the morning, my wrinkles are pretty much not visible, but once I make any sort of facial expression, they all come back. Although my skin is starting to bounce back a little more after making facial expressions, I'm hoping that with continued use of this product, I will not have this problem anymore. Speaking of continued use, and finally my last point, I'm assuming that this is something that I'm going to have to use for the rest of my life, or until they discontinue this (I sure hope not!), for my wrinkles to stay away. All in all, excellent product!
So it has been quite awhile since I first started using this product. I am deducting a couple lippies off of this, because it doesn't seem to help my wrinkles at all anymore. It's like my skin got used to this, which is probably what happened. It's unfortunate. I will use the rest of the bottle, so that it's not completely wasted, but I will not be repurchasing.

I've been looking for something like this for years, and now, I found it...at Target. Being a drug store item, I wasn't expecting much. According to the label, it helped fine lines in 5 days.
My forehead is the worst area, and last night was day three for me. I got up this morning, and the fine, and not so fine areas on my forehead, are gone. Seriously, I'm thinking about buying it's partner day cream, after this luck. I can't believe it's this good, and I bought it at a department store. My mirror doesn't lie. This is a great product.

Who on here *isn't* looking for a fab wrinkle repairing lotion?!?! I'm always on the search and have to say this one really does the trick. I've been using it for about 3 weeks and my skin feels fabalous! Very soft and supple, the fine lines seem diminished, it actually cleared up a bit as well. It's a light lotion that goes on easily, absorbed well and doesn't have a scent. I like the fact that it's in a pump dispenser, can't stand pouring it out or having to dip a finger in...This is definetly going to be a HG for me!

I had to add this product and review it because I am blown away! It has only been three nights of using this for me but the results are amazing. I am in my early 40's and have taken good care of my skin but have some fine lines and wrinkles and uneven skin tone.
Well after using this my fine lines are GONE. My skin tone looks more even and my deeper wrinkles are softened.
This cream has Retinol SA, Glucose and Hyaluronic Acid as the actives. It's a light cream and does have fragrance but not enough to bother me. The best part it is only $20.
I know it's only been three nights but I have had no irritation, breakouts etc. For me that is enough time because I can tell sometimes after one use how my skin is reacting.
Great retinol product for others like me that can't use the stronger retinoids.
*UPDATE* Still amazed after almost a week, skin looks better everyday!
*UPDATE* Two weeks and wow my skin looks amazing, so happy!
