I really don't do much with my skin, and at 36 (having been a major sun worshipper, suffered acne as a teen, and practically being born with freckles) I know I need to start! I generally wear a moisturizer in the morning (Wrinkle Release), but that is it. Lately, I haven't even been moisturizing :( I have been using this at night for four days and I swear I already see a difference! My lines seem softer, my skin is definitely more even, and I swear the shadowing around my eyes isn't as noticeable! I use two pumps of the lotion (i bet one would do the job), and apply after washing my face. There is a strong (yet pleasant) scent, but I tend to "taste" it awhile since I apply it around my lips. My skin is instantly softer and glows. I haven't experienced any tingling, flaking or drying, and my face doesn't even need a moisturizer in the morning! Already loving this after four days??? I'm sold! Definitely gonna keep up with this!!!

Everything about this product is wonderful! It goes on silky and does not take allot to cover the face and neck. My face has a"glowy" look in the morning. I can see a difference in the elasticity, and the feel of my skin just after one week... impressive.

When I first began using this product I saw results very quickly. Unfortunately, after 3 weeks of using it religiously & exactly as directed, it reached it's plateau & stopped making anymore improvements. I dont expect miracles, & I will admit it did work well when it worked, but I expect a wrinkle treatment to continue to work longer than 3 weeks.
Avons Gold Emulsion cream is also an anti-aging staple in my skincare routine, & it continues to work after 2 years of using it. Generally I like Neutrogena products, but I wont buy this product again.

Hold the phone! This night treatment is miraculous! I've been using the rapid wrinkle eye cream and it was working really well so I thought I'd see how this one performs. And based on the all the good reviews how could I resist? Wow! It's a powerful workhorse that softens, smooths and makes my complexion much more radiant than any other treatment product I've tried...at any price. And let me tell you, in my 50 years, I've tried a few! This treatment does exactly what it claims to do. It really does soften those pesky lines...especially around the eyes and above my lip. I've been using it at night for 3 weeks and have noticed a huge improvement not only in the lines but how smooth and glowing it makes my skin. My skin is dry and sensitive with a few lines/crepyness and I have some unevenness and discoloration...it's addressing all of it. The only slight issue I have is with the fragrance. IMHO it smells yucky. It may not bother some but I just don't care for it. However, I'll gladly put up with smell because it works so incredibly well. And all for about $17. I've used retinol products at 10 times that price that didn't work half as well.
One pump the size of pea covers my face and neck. I started using it every other night for about a week, as I'm sensitive to retinol, after one week I applied every night. And then i just watched while the clock turned back on face. A HG night treatment for me!!
Edit 2/10/13: I wouldn't dream of switching to another treatment. I'm so completely satisfied and pleased with how much my skin has improved since I started using this! My fine lines have improved by at least 50% and the overall tone by even more. My face and neck aren't anywhere near as blotchy and discolored as they were. And no more dry patches...anywhere. Excellent treatment. Affordable, too.

I love this stuff! I don't have much in the way of real wrinkles, but the fine lines are starting to show up. This helped reduce them (or the look of them) in just a few days. It also has made my skin feel smoother and softer. I still use olive oil a couple nights a week, and go back to this with no problems or let-up in the smoothing and softening properties. I may have found my new HG! Will definitely repurchase.

I love this product and I've only been using it a week. I've used other serum-y type things on my skin to even my skin tone and keep wrinkles at bay and this stuff just does it all, without any drawbacks. Old dark spots from acne are even starting to fade.

LOVE!!! This poduct is AMAZING!!! My skin has NEVER been so smooth (at least as long as I can remember). I have used for only 5 days, and wow what great results in such a short amount of time! I hope they never discontinue, because this is def. nearing HG status!

Fourth day using this product and I must say I am loving what I am seeing.
My skin is glowing and looks like I have had a facial! Smells good and is a good texture. I love that I can pump out the product as opposed to dipping my fingers in a jar.
I haven't noticed yet any disappearance of wrinkles but as I previously mentioned it is only day four. Looking forward to continues results.

As I neared the age of 25 I noticed fine lines appearing on my forehead. I was somewhat okay with the fact when not wearing makeup, but it seemed as though my foundation would exacerbate the problem, leaving it looking not only more wrinkled than it was, but cakey as well! I am quite prone to freckles and sun spots, and because of this do not go outside without some foundation with SPF in it. I need the sunscreen, and the foundation erases the connect-the-dot look I loathe (I find sunscreen alone always makes me look greasy and break out).I could see my skin looked worse in sunlight and was horrified by the fact that it would only get worse over time.
Oh and it did.. By 27 my forehead lines did not get worse.. but I had developed a form of tiny tiny bumps on my forehead, it felt almost as if every pore was plugged and inflamed and I had no idea what to do. On top of that all, I started to develop awful acne on my cheeks and chin. As a teenager I was constantly complimented on my skin, and I feel like this made it even worse that 10 years later I looked leathery and oily.
I sought out the doctors advice (it is quite tough in Montreal, we do not often have our own GPs so some can be stuck with clinic doctors who do not want their time wasted), and she simply said go on birth control, but would not refer me to a dermatologist.
After taking birth control for 1 month I did notice a lot of clear up, but had to trade it in for a gain of 15 lbs, with the inability to lose it! I was so depressed I did not know what to do, and ended up choosing to be thinner over having clearer skin. Immediately the skin issues returned, though my forehead's leathery look had never really left.
I read about exfoliants and quickly bought a gommage by Roc, to no real avail (it felt smoother but looked the same). I bought all kinds of facial scrubs with the micro-beads, and exfoliated as much as I could get away with-same result, felt great but looked awful. I was so misled by the information that I was finding that I would use these products and then put moisturiser on hoping it would do SOMETHING. By chance, when in store looking for a good moisturizer to replace some non-helpul St. Ives cream, I ended up buying Neostrata's Smoothing cream- level 2, thinking it was just a good moisturizer with SPF in it. Boy was I surprised when it went on greasy and I would continuously rub my forehead to try to get it to sink in, only to feel skin cells coming OFF!
With this product I felt it was doing something, I actually saw results.. dead skin cells being burnt off my face.. layer after layer. As greasy as the smoothing lotion was, I would still put it on my pimples on my cheeks, and though it at times created more acne, it would remove all the dead skin that had formed and made wearing foundation an actual possibility; I looked 27 instead of 35.
Despite the amazing results of Neostrata's smoothing cream though, I could not get rid of those fine lines on my forehead. I ran out of the Neostrata, and stupidly did not buy any more thinking it only helped so much.
I guess I must have stopped looking in the mirror, or perhaps I was more focused on life and its setbacks. Simply put, my forehead got leathery again and those cursed fine lines stayed laughing, mocking me.
I bought mineral makeup, which I thought would somehow cause my forehead to be less plugged and clogged, and it made it look worse than it had ever looked; I now looked 40.
I remembered catching an episode of Doctor Oz, and him saying how good vitamin A was for your skin, and him talking about Retin-A and its effects, but I was wary. I did not want to spend money on yet another cream that would only do so much, or worse not work at all. Christmas came, and I received a tiny bit of cash (I am a student), and I was feeling deep pocketed and went to Walmart with a plan. There I was again confronted with all of these creams and products and I started to feel woozy, but I suddenly this blue bottle of Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair (Night cream) caught my eye. For some reason I was so drawn to the tester bottle, I found it minimalistically beautiful! I almost bought it right there, but there was some Loreal product beside it, also with Retin-somethin and also on sale. This was the defining moment, and I did not know what to do! It dawned on me to visit Makeup Alley, and I read reviews for both, seeing a better rating for Neutrogena- so I bought it!
It might just be in my head, but after 2 days my skin was exactly as others have stated, dewy, glowing and refreshed. Of course there were no major miracles but for the glowing look alone I was happy! This is the first cream that I have applied regularly, and not just because of its recommendation to do so, but because of that glowing look it gave me. I felt beautiful, even with no real diminishing lines or reduction in pimples.
After two weeks of using it daily, sometimes twice daily, I noticed a major reduction in acne, and an improvement on my forehead lines (though slight). Some of my skin did flake, but that stopped as I got used to it. Eventually though, I noticed a halt in improvement, and I still had lines on my forehead. I was quite happy regardless, it continued to reduce my acne and I even noticed my sunspots fading!
My forehead though, bane of my existence, started to get leathery again. I found my empty bottle of Neostrata Smoothing lotion during a move, and memories of skin cells peeling off flooded back. I splurged for a bottle of Neostrata Smoothing lotion, Level3.
Oh. My. God.
With regular usage of the Neostrata and Neutrogena creams, my forehead lines are GONE. My leathery, forehead? Gone.I look 10 times better than I did at 25! My foundation goes on smoothly, and I have never been happier. It seems the dead skin buildup had interfered with the magic of this cream.Exfoliate rigorously and you WILL see an improvement!

To be fair, I did not buy this product for wrinkles, nor do I have any to be able to notice any changes. I had been suffering from hormonal breakouts for several months. This had happened before and I switched BCP which cleared it up. I did not want to swich again this time so I decided to change my skincare. I was using certain products that helped but did not really get my skin to where I wanted it to be. I saw this at the drugstore and don't know why I decided to buy it. I never thought OTC retinol products would be strong enough to help with acne but I'm so glad I tried this. I used this for about a week and saw amazing results. My cysts had significantly diminshed and the frequency of new cysts popping up also changed. By the third week my skin was completely transformed. I'm on week four and results are still amazing. I continue to use this in conjunction with mandelic acid, a clay/sulfur mask and some use of BP and BHA (obviously rotating each product).
