Unfortunately one of the side effects of age (for most of us) is wrinkles. Even worse if you take someone like me who has never really had the best skincare routine your skin can look pretty rough. Thankfully despite my lack of a good routine my skin is not in terrible shape. I’m even more thankfully that I will be learning a great deal of information about beauty and skincare using the RoC Academy, an exclusive online resource that provides a behind-the-scenes look into skincare, and I’ll be sharing some of that information in a follow-up post later this month, so don’t miss it. I will admit I am definitely in need of some de-wrinkle help, and not the kind that you through in the dryer for a quick spin and wrinkles are removed!
Crow’s Feet & Under Eye Wrinkles
I am rarely this transparent because yes I hate my wrinkles. This is one area where many women get wrinkles as they age and this mama is no exceptions. Nearly 40, and when I say nearing I mean in 4 days YIKES, I have noticed that I’ve started to take notice of my skin, my health, and things that I may have otherwise taken for granted. I received some RoC Skincare products that are suppose to help me with my wrinkle of a problem.
RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Max Wrinkle Resurfacing System
Fades the look of wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, and cheek while also improving the overall signs of damaged associated with sun exposure.
Sounds exactly what I need, as a future sun worshiper, and I didn’t mention above I also have some pretty big laugh lines. When I’m smiling I love them. When I’m not smiling, not so much. When I’m a little thinner they are very noticeable. So this was the first thing I decided to try. There is a warning that you may experience a little tingle or tightening with the product but I did not feel this effect at all. The anit-wrinkle treatment went on very smooth. The resurfacing serum seemed oily to me at first but it blended right in and my skin actually began to feel smooth and clean. My daughter made a comment that she loved the smell of the product. This product is made to be worn at night before you go to bed.
RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Deep Wrinkle Night Cream and Daily Mosturizer
I’m not really sure that I need anything additional at night since I’m using the resurfacing system so I will be saving the night cream pictured above for when I’m finished with the system. The day cream however I will be using during the day to help reduce those nasty wrinkles.
Contains an exclusive combination of pure retinol and the latest sunscreen technology that is specifically engeineered to deliver very broad and photostable UVA and UVB protection with an SPF 30.
RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Eye Cream
I’ve also decided that along with the resurfacing system and daily moisturizer I’m going to give my eyes a little added help with the eye cream.
When you apply the cream, the formula starts to work immediately to smooth skin’s surface. With continued use, you will notice a visible reduction in wrinkles around the eye, crow’s feet, dark circles, and puffiness.
Before receiving this products my routine was nothing more than wash and go. Once in a while when my skin feels dry I add some moisturizer, as I mentioned my routine has never been all that great. Since these are such big issues for me I’m really hoping to see an improvement with these new products. According to the labeling on most of the products you will start to see results in 4 weeks, more in 8 weeks, and even more in 12 weeks. I can’t wait to see how well it works. You can pick up all of the products listed above at your local Walgreens.
