I am becoming obsessed with Roc products! This is the third one I've tried so far. First, I picked up Roc Deep Wrinkle Filler. Experiencing amazing results with it.. clears acne, plumps skin & fills in wrinkles, Slightly tingly but gentle. I added Roc Daily Moisturizer with spf, to protect my skin during the day. (Another winner! Check out my other reviews for those, if you are curious) Brightening, absorbs quickly, No white residue & doesn't make me break out. Good stuff.
Now I've added this one... I can honestly say it is quite a bit stronger than the Deep Wrinkle Filler. And it's not just my perception, if you compare the ingredients, Roc Deep Wrinkle Night Cream is more concentrated. And from what I've read, it's the strongest OTC retinol you can find. Compared to the DWF, the Night cream has a Different texture, more runny. Don't let that fool you though. This stuff is POTENT. You can tell from the stronger tingling sensation for the first few minutes after application. My skin looks smoother, clearer. My slight fine lines are blurred.
I am seriously impressed with this stuff. Will update this review at the 4 week mark :)
So I realize it hasn't quite been a month. However, I started using Roc Deep Wrinkle Filler right around 2/14. Then after 2 weeks, I eased my way into this product, also. Now I use both. First I'll apply Roc Deep Wrinkle Night Cream all over my face. Then, once it dries, I dab DWF on any deep wrinkles or occasional breakouts that need a little more TLC.
I added a couple of more products to my routine, as well, that really helped aid this process. (In case you're wondering, Mad Hippie Vit C Serum & Exfoliating Serum!!! Pair up beautifully with ROC products)
I've seen big changes since then, but here lately I really started noticing the skin under my eyes is tightening up. It's a bit itchy and I'm getting stabbed periodically with my lower eye lashes XD but I suppose that it is worth it. There hasn't been any other irritation. A little Aloe & Acure Seriously Glowing Serum cleared up that very minor problem :)
Lines on my forehead, around my mouth and well...everywhere on my face looks better. Nearly gone. I used to be able to pull up on my cheekbones a little and give myself a mini face lift. Can't even do that anymore. Which...just wow. It's like a mini face lift in a bottle. My skin just looks better and more flawless by the day. I still look in the mirror, in disbelief, as my chin and lower jaw was perpetually covered in cystic acne as I entered my late 20's. I was always smearing on makeup and hating how I looked without makeup. These days make up isn't necessary and, I feel beautiful and secure without it. That's a first.
BELIEVE the hype about the product, you WILL see big changes. Especially if you struggle with acne. This product has given me the skin I have always wanted. Cannot say enough about it. However, patience and diligence is key if you want the best outcome possible. So keep at it, ladies! Give it a couple of months... but you probably won't even need to wait that long. Within a week, you'll probably see a huge change. And if you are entering your mid 20's or any older than that, and are still struggling to get rid of acne, try this one. You won't regret it. Your acne will clear up AND you'll see less wrinkles.
I decided to update this review, as I feel like it's really helpful to see how the product is working even after some time has passed. I've learned a few tricks and tips about this product now that I've been using it for awhile.
First, it does cause some irritation. I've noticed it mostly near my eyes. After the first month, I had to slow down on usage near that area. They felt raw and pretty awful for a few days. Even now, it causes me some irritation. That's when I knew to slow down. Another area that seems to get irritated is on my neck. It seems to get itchy, raw and uncomfortable and break out sometimes from me scratching it. I think that bothered me more than my eyes feeling a little rough. To remedy this, I've figured out that it is best to alternate use, every other night. Sometimes, I'll skip a couple of nights and instead use my Lactic Acid Serum alternating with my gentle Glycolic Acid Serum. On the upside, I'm glad to know that even though it bugs my skin a bit sometimes, it is WORKING.
Another thing I have noticed, is that a very moisturizing cream cleanser really helps soothe my skin from the dryness and irritation I sometimes face. I picked up a bottle of Yes to Carrots Daily Cream Cleanser to aid in this process. I use it in the morning to wash RDWNC off. That helps a lot.
Even though I've been using RDWNC for about 5 months, it still can be a little tricky to find a routine that works best. However, I think it is worth it. TIP: If it's causing your skin to freak out, don't use it for a couple of days. Make sure you moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.
As far as the fading of wrinkles, as I've said before, it REALLY works. I've seen massive improvement everywhere on my face, neck and on the backs of my hands. The texture of my skin has smoothed so much, it's shocking. It basically resurfaced it. The lines around my mouth are pretty much gone now.
Since I started using this in March, I've stocked up on this product. I have probably 7 bottles in stock. That's how much I love Roc Deep Wrinkle Night Cream. And I think now I should mention I'm not getting paid to write this review. Will update again after a year of use.
