RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream Review
The delicate area around the eyes can be one of the first spots on the face to show signs of aging, such as fine lines, puffiness, or crow’s feet. RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream aims to minimize the appearance of these signs of aging by using retinol, a potent form of Vitamin A commonly used to treat wrinkles.
RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream aims to reduce wrinkles in the eye area in 12 weeks. It also addresses other conditions that may make the eyes seem more tired or older, such as puffiness or dark circles.
The opinions of customers regarding this product are split and polarized. Many customers feel that this particular eye cream is not that effective on fine lines and dark circles and stress that care must be taken when using this product, while others remark that it is effective in treating under eye circles and wrinkles. The majority of reviews mention irritation caused by this product. Retinols are very potent exfoliants, and a consumer should build up use gradually, especially if he or she suffers from sensitive skin. Since the skin around the eye are is the most sensitive, special care must be taken when using a retinoid here. Users have commented that using RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream every other day, perhaps in conjunction with a gentler, soothing eye cream or gel, may reduce the risk of irritation, stinging, burning, or peeling. If the cream itself gets into the eye, the situation can become even more painful.
Users who may have noticed little to no difference in the appearance of wrinkles or dark circles have commented on the pleasant texture and moisturizing abilities of this eye cream. Since the formula is so potent, only a very little amount needs to be applied. Thus, although the tube may seem small, it lasts for a long time. In addition, the tube packaging, as opposed to a pot or jar, helps keep the retinol compound stable and thus effective.
RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream is a product specifically designed to minimize the signs of aging in the eye area by using retinol to treat wrinkles and under eye circles. Although the powerful compound retinol may be efficacious, it is also highly irritating, and even more so in a sensitive area where the skin is thin and delicate. If a person has experience with retinols and feels comfortable slowly building up usage, this may be a viable option to treat wrinkles, crow’s feet, and other damage. However, for most the end result will not be worth the unpleasant and possibly painful sensations reported by most users.
