The product

When it comes to anti-ageing skin care, it can sometimes feel like we are bombarded with a never-ending stream of products that you *have* to buy in order to maintain that coveted ‘youthful’ complexion. But if you’re not interested in becoming bogged down in a 10-step routine filled with ridiculous amounts of product, then Neutrogena’s latest hardworking duo may be for you.

The simple two-step anti-ageing system includes the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream and the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Retinol Oil. When used together, they work quickly to provide visible results, minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in just one week, and improving the appearance of deep wrinkles and hyperpigmentation with extended use.

Our panel of Review Crew® members put these two products to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream and Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Retinol Oil to a panel of our trusted Review Crew® members aged between 35 and 54 years old who wanted to effectively minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and address signs of hyperpigmentation.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream and the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Retinol Oil.

How soft, silky and hydrated the cream made their skin feel: Reviewers loved how deeply hydrating the cream was, with many saying their skin had never felt softer.

How fast-absorbing and lightweight the oil was: Members were at first a little apprehensive about adding an oil to their routine but were pleasantly surprised by how quickly the oil absorbed. Some commented that their skin drank it up!

How the cream and oil helped to minimise the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation: Reviewers were very impressed by how quickly the cream and oil helped to diminish the visible signs of ageing, with several reviewers noting that the duo helped fade dark spots that they’d had for years.

The verdict

“I wish that I had taken a before photo of myself before trying it. I use Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Retinol Oil after my normal cleansing and toning each morning and night and have definitely seen an improvement in my fine lines around my eyes. It feels so good on my skin as well.”

“Using this cream day and night, in combination with the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Retinol Oil at night, has left my skin smoother and firmer. I have used this cream before and loved it, and its efficacy was enhanced by using the retinol oil at night. The cream also works really well under makeup, which is important for daily use.”

“Menopause and MCTD has taken its toll on my complexion these past two years, leaving me with texture and fine lines around my eyes and mouth area. I feel that they have been softened whilst not causing any sensitivity issues normally associated with retinol products of old.”
