Skincare Sunday: Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer Review

I always make a renewed effort on my skin care each New Year, so the beginning of 2015 has been no different.  At 32, I want to make sure I am being as proactive as possible about everything I put on my face.  Part of that renewal was giving up my old standby "acne" proudcts that I've been using forever and moving on to protecting and perfecting with retinols and SPF.  Boosting my skin now will hopefully put me ahead of the game later!

The biggest change in my routine has been the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer.  After I wash my face at night with the Neutrogena Pore Refining Exfoliating Cleanser*, I take a pea-sized amount of this night moisturizer and put it all over my face and down my neck (none of us wants turkey neck when we're older, right?)

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer - Claims from
  • Accelerated Retinol SA fades wrinkles fast
  • Brightens Skin Tone
  • Smooth fine lines and texture
  • Diminishes age spots
  • Moisturizes and renews the look of skin
  • Visible results in 1 week
Price: $17.99 at Target

This product is a keeper in my skincare routine.  My skin definitely looks more even, toned, and smooth.  Results are noticeable in the first week, as claimed.  It hasn't completely faded my old acne scarring, but it looks so much better than it did before.  I actually enjoy the scent - it's not super strong, but pleasant.  As a side bonus...the retinol is keeping most breakouts at bay, or at the very least, accelerating their downfall if any do pop up.

Overall, this is an awesome product.  If you have sensitive skin, you may want to start out applying it every over or every third night until your skin gets used to it.  I have elephant-thick (not sensitive) skin, so using it every day isn't an issue for me.  Here's to keeping all the wrinkles away for as long as possible!

*I will review the Pore Refining Exfoliating Cleanser next week for Skincare Sunday :)
