For men and women looking for a really good anti wrinkle product for the eye area which will not break the bank, RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream could have the answer for-
- Fine lines
- Crow’s feet wrinkles
- Under eye wrinkles
- Dark circles
RoC can also provide a solution for those people who have previously had sensitivity to products containing Retinol as they have also produced a “Sensitive” version of their eye cream.
This product may be for you if sensitivity to retinoids is a problem for you as in RoC’s clinical study, 96% of the women who used this product and who had previously had problems with redness and irritation after using products containing retinoids had no problems with this eye cream!
Both products are hypoallergenic and designed specifically for the delicate skin under and around the eyes. RoC say that their cream produces a visible reduction in the wrinkles and crows feet round the eyes in only twelve weeks of use as directed. More rapid results are achieved with improvements in the appearance of dark circles and puffiness in only four weeks.
RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream was the CEW Beauty Awards Winner in 2006. CEW is the Cosmetic Executive Women and to win an award in their Annual event is very prestigious. Follow the link to look at their website.
Using the eye cream is very simple. Just dot the formula round the eye area and then gently, using the pad of your fingertip, smooth it over the skin until completely absorbed. You might want to wait a few moments before applying makeup after using the cream. This should be used morning and evening or just in the evening.
If you have never used a product containing Retinol, or you are using the Sensitive version because you have had sensitivity to retinoids Roc recommends that you start off using the product only every other day for about two weeks. If no sensitivities occur, gradually build up until you are using the product every day, either once or twice as required.
Another important point when using products containing retinol is that you should use a sunscreen with an SP5 of at least 15. This is because your skin becomes more sensitive to sunlight when using this type of cream. If you discontinue use of the product, be sure to go on using a sunscreen for at least a week afterwards to protect your skin.
How does RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream work?
Lines and wrinkles become a problem as our skin ages and retinol is a very effective ingredient for reducing their appearance. It is a pure form of Vitamin A which helps the skin to improve its ability to renew itself. When we are young, our skin looks healthy and has more elasticity. Retinol products can help your skin to appear more youthful.
Both products get great reviews on Amazon with an average of four stars from reviewers. Mouse over the advert above for current, discounted price at Amazon (clicking the image will take you to the product page for the item).
Both eye creams also contain Hyaluronic Acid. This has a very good effect on the appearance of your skin as it helps to ‘lock in’ the moisture your skin needs to stay hydrated and has the effect of plumping up wrinkles, decreasing their appearance.
RoC is a trusted brand, having been founded over fifty years ago in France. RoC has always worked closely with dermatologists and has become the leading provider of skincare products in France and their products have been available to men and women in the US since 1999. All RoC products are backed with a great deal of research and clinical study.
What we think
Both of these RoC anti wrinkle eye creams get really good reviews and are surprisingly inexpensive by comparison with other Retinol products. We like the fact that a sensitive version of the cream is available and that both products are backed up by the expertise and research of this well respected and long established name in skin care. We definitely recommend the normal and sensitive versions of RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream as good value and effective products.
