Sun exposure, dirt, pollution and stress – this is just a glimpse into what our skin endures everyday. Just as we follow tips to help us eat right, stay active and de-stress, we need to realize that our skin deserves better treatment.
If there’s one ingredient that should be a part of every good skincare regimen, it’s retinol. Retinol is one of the most powerful anti-aging ingredient to date. It speeds up cell turnover, fade the look of wrinkles, brightens skin tone, smooth fine lines & texture and does so much more. That said, most retinol products can be harsh and unforgiving, leaving skin dry and flaky.
But what if you can get your hands on a gentle retinol formula that delivers the skin-perfecting benefits, without the potential side effects – and that too at your local drugstore? YES! Enter the new Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream.
Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream combines the highest concentration of Accelerated Retinol SA with heavy-hitting hydrators like hyaluronic acid to smooth the look of fine lines and leave skin supple & nourished. And it promises real results in as little as one week! Now that’s a skincare game-changer, especially if you have naturally dry skin like me!
I felt that Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream was the right retinol fit for my dry, finicky skin from the very first day I started using it! I love how rich and moisturizing the formula is but absorbs quickly without leaving my skin greasy or oily.
What makes it even better is that with this cream, I don’t have to use a moisturizer on top to offset the usual drying effects of retinol so it’s #lazygirlapproved (who has the time and energy for those extra steps late at night?) I can sleep easy knowing I won’t have to worry about flaking skin a few days later!
Packaged in a beautiful glass jar, the cream is not only super-hydrating and gentle but a little goes a long way! All I need is a pearl-sized amount for my face. It has a fairly strong (but not stifling) citrus-y kind of scent that dissipates soon after application. Even though my experience with this new retinol cream has only been about a couple weeks long, I can say that it has been an effective skin saver for me even in the middle of winter!
The one thing we can all agree on is that great skin comes not only from a good skincare regimen but also taking care of yourself from the inside out. When it comes to a healthy lifestyle, I have been pretty good about my exercise routine but not so much about a balanced, nutrient-rich diet. So, this year I resolved to step up the game and the first step has been to replace my afternoon coffee for green juice (mainly leafy greens and less fruit to avoid the extra sugar) at least 3-4 times a week. Yes, it’s a bit of a hassle (#lazygirlproblems) but I am getting the hang of it!
Now that I’m in my late 30s, I want skin care products that help take care of my skin today while preparing it for the years to come and Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream fits the bill!
