What: RoC Multi-Correxion Night Treatment, $24.99
Why: During every interview I conduct with dermatologists, the word “retinol” or “retinoid” pops up more often than not. It seems to be the wonder ingredient for aging skin. So, why not try an over-the-counter version? Cue up RoC Multi-Correxion Night Treatment, which contains Pure RoC Retinol.
Pure RoC Retinol promises to diminish small lines and wrinkles, as well as signal skin renewal. I’m not sure if I’m willing the retinol to work, but, by golly, it seems to be working out that begrudged kink between my eyebrows at an astonishing rate (by week 4 of continued use). Also in the mix: a cocktail of antioxidants that fight free-radical damage, and vitamin C to even skin tone, and, yes, my skin tone is certainly becoming more vibrant and less spotty.
In 8 weeks, my age spots and bottomless cheek pores should be visibly diminished; at 12 weeks, my fine lines should lessen and my skin becomes firmer. Being only a third of the way through the battle, I can only say that, applied once in the morning (pre-daytime moisturizer) and once at night (pre-night cream), we’ll wait and see.
