Anti-Aging Series: RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream

January 22, 2009

When I was trying to decide which of the many products for my anti-aging series to start with, the top of my list was always covered with retinol-based creams. I finally settled on RoC, and upon further examination, I definitely feel like it was the right choice to kick things off. Not only has it received some amazing reviews, but the fact that it contains retinol can only be a plus.

You may be wondering what retinol actually is, given the fact that I have already referred to it way too many times in this review. Basically, it’s a fat-soluble vitamin A compound, which is found in any animal body, human or otherwise. It promotes bone and eye strength, in it’s most common use, but it has also been found to have drastic effects when used on the skin.

Now, since this is used specifically for deep wrinkles, I haven’t had the chance to use it myself, but I have done more then just a little digging into it’s effects, especially from customer reviews, and I have to say that I am so far impressed. The idea behind it is sound, which should immediately make you a little less anxious about it’s effectiveness, after all, retinol has been used successfully in a number of products.

From what I can tell about RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream, it is more effective on the forehead, and in the lines that develop around the mouth. I have, sadly, heard a lot said about it’s inability to work that well around the eyes, which is where many will feel they need the help most, but products of this strength shouldn’t be used for that area in the first place. Best to stick with an eye-specific product, lest you cause more damage then is already present.

There is one major con about RoC, and I have heard about it time and again with retinol products. That con is the fact that it will badly dry out your skin, especially in people who already have dry patches. Not only will that cause flaking, itching, and redness, but it can also cause adult acne. No need to panic, however. A simple moisturizer used in conjunction, particularly during the day, as well as a moisturizing cleanser, will help tackle that little side effect.

All in all, I think the RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream is worth a shot, and a definite nod, and for around $17 – $19, which is around a quarter of the price of other brands, it’s a great value. I would recommend this for anyone who has been seeing some deep wear and tear over the years, and is looking to take a few years or so off their face.

    I have used the OLIVE NIGHT CREAM (from the Made from Earth skincare line) for almost two months now and I have seen a dramatic difference in my skin.

    I am 56 years old, and while my skin is in good condition, at this age, you need products that perform. The Olive Night Cream did it for me.

    When I wake in the morning my skin is so soft and smooth, like baby skin. Wrinkles are definitely diminished, especially near my eyes where skin is particularly vulnerable. I HIGHLY recommend using Made from Earth’s brand Olive Night Cream. This new product helps your creams and serums to work even better, by removing the dead cells and encouraging cell turnover.

    It is amazing. That combined with the Rooibos Tea Face Scrub is almost guaranteed to make your skin look younger and fresher.

    Try these. You will not be disappointed!

    you can find them at http://www.madefromearth.com

    Short of any procedure that is invasive(botox,cosmetic surgery, etc), there really isnt any magic cream that is going to reverse the aging process, but there are a number of products that will aid in improving the look, feel and texture of your face. I’ve been trying out several of the products out there, and I found “Made from Earth Olive Night Creme” to be one of the best ones around.

    I really like the Olive Night Creme alot because of the many benefits it has all in one jar. After using it pretty generously for a little over a month(I’ve used about 1/2 the jar so far), I found it worked wonders on improving the look and feel of my skin. It minimized the appearance of fine lines, really hydrated my dry skin, improving on firmness, absorbed deep into my skin, so using it every night, I could still feel the softness the next morning, and left my face feeling very smooth to the touch. I especially felt and saw visable result around my neck and throat area(where I am really starting to get that over 50 look).

    It has a nice, very light scent, and here’s the best part… The price online at their site (www.madefromearth.com) is 1/2 of what I paid when I purchased it along with my groceries at Whole Food Supermarket…definitely buy online to save.

    Don’t expect a miracle – but the Made from Earth Night Creme comes close. The wrinkles will not vanish, but a nice improvement in the look and feel of your skin, a healthy glow that leaves you feeling just a little better about yourself(and a a great price).

    I like it and recommend it…..Laurie

    Pam – I agree with you!

    I like how the Made from Earth olive night creme product diminshied my wrinkles and my uneven skin tone. It didnt firm my skin though.

    I put this moisturizer before I sleep and when I woke up in the morning , i was a it oily but I shower everymorning….so the extra oil is worth the great effects the Made from Earth Olive Night Creme has on wrinkles….

    I bought the Made from Earth Olive Night Creme a couple weeks ago, and I’ve applied it every morning and every night, and my eyes have definitely lightened up and look fresher. It doesn’t work instantaneously, but what skin care product does? If you use it everyday, within a couple weeks, you’ll see a difference. . .
