Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Cream is a very strong retinol cream and works well to help with fine lines and wrinkles.
The fine lines around my eyes were still there but softer, and my complexion was more even, my pores less prominent. Not the miracle fountain of youth I'd been hoping for, but "noticeable results in one week" nonetheless.
In addition to a fast-acting form of the ingredient, the rich cream is packed with ultra-hydrating hyaluronic acid.

What reviewers didn't like

The smell of this product is also way too strong for my liking.
I began to feel a stronger burning sensation after application
Some may dislike the scent

If you use this cream during the day, be sure to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
