Quite a few weeks back BzzAgent sent me some full size samples (& coupons for) RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Creme. I was very excited to receive these. I was just about out of night cream and hadn't bought anything, plus I've had positive experience with the RoC brand before. So, I started using the cream. First, I had to use it only every other day because the active ingredient (Retinol) was a bit too harsh on my skin, even though I've used Retinols before. The guide said that might be the case and to follow that pattern. So, after about a week I progressed to using it every night. I think it's been about 8 weeks, maybe 9 since I received the cream and started using it.
I must say that I'm disappointed with the cream's performance on my skin. I can attest to the fact that my skin is softer now. And I know by the irritation that it caused at first, that the active ingredient is probably doing its job. However, I cannot SEE any difference in my skin. I've not noticed any lessening of lines or wrinkles, of complexion/discoloration problems or even of occasional blemishes. I do have the softness, though, so I guess that's something, right?
True, I don't really have many lines or wrinkles (I'm only 36), except on my forehead, which bore the brunt of my sunburns most of my life...so maybe I would see more difference if I had more problems? I was really hoping that it would do some serious repair to my etched forehead, though. I guess I just need to cut some bangs if I want improve that area!
