So, where to begin? I bought this and received it in the mail just a few days ago. I got it because I wanted to see what all the rave was about and also because Ive noticed some fine lines appearing more around my eyes and forehead. I would say my skin is pretty normal usually other then the fact I'm pregnant right now and it is winter, so it tends to be a bit more dry.
The first couple of nights went great. I noticed the mild redness as the bottle says will happen, as well as some flakiness. By the third night my face was ON FIRE! After an hour I couldn't take it anymore and rinsed it off. The only thing I found to somewhat help with this burning and discomfort was to lather my face in coconut oil. So I decided to do some research on retinol face creams. Turns out you need to start VERY SLOWLY (unlike every night/every other as Neutrogena says on the bottle) like starting use only once a week for a couple weeks then onto twice a week...and so on. Also, the fact that you aren't suppose to use retinols with any other face products especially ones containing certain ingredients which my Neutrogena face scrub does in fact have some of those ingredients. Also, to consult with you doctor if you are pregnant or breast feeding before starting ANY type of retinol cream. This goes for ones from prescribed by the doctor or over the counter.
My advice for Neutrogena, come up with a whole line for the rapid wrinkle repair like a face cleanser that will work with the night cream other then against. Also, update your cautions/precautions when using this item. NO WAY could I use this every night. I don't know how the test people did. Because this stuff will turn you into a walking sunburn. So I advise saying to start out much slower in applying 1-2 times a week. I am letting my face rest for a few weeks and then I will try to use once a week and go from there. For now, I'M STAYING AWAY!

My skin has been terribly dry this winter season, so I love this! I put it on at night and my skin is so refreshed in the morning. I have also noticed less small wrinkles!

I used this product for a few weeks and noted my skin was smoother. It took a few days to get used to the "tingle" and redness but it went away quickly.

This is a really nice product with a good sales price. If you are looking for a night cream to help soften your skin over time, this is a great product to do so!

I was skeptical at first, but this did in fact help my wrinkles. I wasn't able to use it every night at first due to sensitivity but I was able to see some improvement. Color me impressed!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by trystelle Great product, great price.
I usually use more expensive brands, but the combination of retinol and hyaluronic acid do a great job. Smoother skin and more even skin tone. Very pleased!

For the most concentrated formula, Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night is a strong moisturizer, working overtime while we sleep! Great for fine line, even deep wrinkles.
