Most Helpful Positive Review I have never seen results this good in any product
I am not an employee of Neutrogena, and I am not being paid for this review. I am a 38 year old, diabetic, African American woman who has tried hundreds of products to 1.erase old acne scars 2. prevent new acne and new scars 3. leveling out uneven color and texture and 4. soften my new baby wrinkles.
Within a week of using this, around the 7th day I noticed a huge difference in texture. Around the end of the 2nd week I started to notice the dark spots on my cheeks lighten up. I have had these marks for YEARS ! I have had acne for over 20 years and being a diabetic, scars on the body do not heal easily or fast. By the end of week three, I was using less makeup and my skin was glowing. I started receiving compliments on how nice my skin was. I have not had anyone say that since I was in my 20's. It has been a little over a month and the dark spots on my cheeks have disappeared. I have not worn foundation in 2 weeks, and I have only been wearing a BB cream on the apple of my cheeks. I am so ecstatic. I have not had any acne breakouts and my skin is super soft. I used to be so self conscience about my acne, even at my age and I covered it with makeup, sunglasses, hair, anything !! but now I am more confidant, self assured and overall its made me a better me. I use it every night and in the morning I use my the best kept little secret... Nutura replenishing cream, by Avon.
Most Helpful Critical Review Very Highly Perfumed
I have used Neutrogena products for years for their quality and focus on hypoallergenic ingredients. However, I was very disappointed in Neutrogena and this product because of the heavy fragrance. As soon as I put some in my hand, it smelled like I had opened a bottle of perfume. I put it on my face and had to wash it completely off after 5 minutes. I don't understand the reason to have any type of fragrance in this type of product, especially one left on overnight while you are sleeping and one that is used around the eyes, nose and sensitive areas of the face.

I just bought this product and already notice results after using it one time!! I was hesitant on buying this because of all the other products I've tried that didn't work but I'm so glad I took the chance. This stuff is gold!!
Great texture and light application
Conner from Ohio
I have only been using a few weeks but so far this is a very nice product. Very light, not greasy and absorbs into the skin very quickly. No heavy perfume scent which rocks. I didn't give a 5 just yet because I haven't noticed much difference just yet from my prior retinol olay night cream BUT I will say I will continue to use this product because of consistency, love Neutrogena anything and that it is a moisturizer, vitamin c and a retinol blend which is awesome!
Patience is key
Jackie from Los Angles, California
I love it. This was my first time using retinol. I started using it around November of last year, 2019. I started with once a week. December I moved up to twice a week. I noticed a lot of dryness and somewhat sensitivity so I discontinued use until February when I learned the trick of applying moisturizer before this retinol. Basically I would wash my face, use toner, the ordinarys hyaluronic acid, then my first aid beauty moisturizer followed by this retinol. I can now use it every day and it doesn't dry my face. I had hyper pigmentation from acne for years and from recent cystic acne outbreaks that I had attempted, and failed to pop. The scars were completely removed and my skin looks so even and smooth. I am 26, have sensitive acne prone skin and I swear my skin is extremely picky.
Burned skin and peeling
Julia127 from undisclosed
I was looking for a simple moisturizer and have used ones with sunscreen in them before, but after just a few days of using this the results were terrible. I do not have sensitive skin, though it can be dry, and I have switched face products multiple times. This left my skin with large red patches all over that burned from just being in the sun. It also caused the skin to peel and flake. I have never experienced anything like this with my skin before, and will never be buying neutrogena products again, considering this is meant to be a simpler product.

My skin was more moisturized
Stacyann38 from Florida
I bought this product a month ago and just it until a few days ago. I didn't see much improvement with one bottle and nothing fades in a week like what the information on the box says but I will say that my skin was more moisturized
I would not buy this again

Do not like the consistency or 5he way it feels on my face
NYS522 from Cleveland, OH
The product feels good on my skin but I cannot get past the terrible smell. It is so pungent and STINKS. I saw other reviewers mention this prior to buying but I thought "it cant be THAT bad" but trust me it is!
Dinah from Boston, MA
At 62, my skin is somewhat uneven in color and texture. The cute freckles of youth now look weird. Over the summer, I ran out of Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Night Moisturizer, and tried another product. After about a month, I really didn't like the way I looked -- my facial skin seemed less resilient, splotchier, and dry. So I got some more Neutrogena, and now I like my face better. The skin has some bounce and plumpness to it, and the color is more uniform. I use the sunscreen Rapid Wrinkle Repair in the daytime to protect against further damage, too.
I would not buy this product again.

Let my face dry with a burning sensation and With red spots.
This product is excellent!
Claudia_cr from West palm beach, fl
I have been using this for two weeks. And omg my skin has improved soooo much!!! I have very stubborn skin. And lately I have gotten so many breakouts it's disturbing. This product does purge your skin so be ready to look worse before you look better. But I noticed that it brought everything clogging my pores gradually to the surface. Now most of my breakouts are gone. And I can see the tone of my skin going back to normal. It feels really smooth and soft. You must give this time to work so I recommend patience. The worse tour skin is the longer it might take. But it's sooooo worth it!!!
My skin looks worse than before
Catamartinez2 from Fort Lauderdale
I bought it a month ago. I had a weird burnt sensation in the areas I was using it. After one month using this product every night, I can tell my skin looks worse than before. Now I have 2 big patches on my cheeks and I'm not sure if it is going to get better. A really disappointing experience with Neutrogena products.
Burned my skin
tina23 from Minnesota
I've used this less than a week. My first application or 2, I thought it was going to be great, but woke up this morning in pain with red, hot, peeling burns all along my upper cheeks. My entire face is tender and looks puffy. For the record, I do not have sensitive skin.
waste of money!

Tried since mid October. Now end of December.
wintaraNY from New York, NY
I m new to Neutrogena and just started using this product (about a week now) and I can feel my skin is smoother. But how is this product different from rapid wrinkle repair night moisturizer (the gray color pump bottle) or Anti-wrinkle deep wrinkle night moisturizer (the blue color tube one). I m in my early 40s and have deep laugh lines. I want to select the Neutrogena skin care products that suit my age.
Can't go wrong with Neutrogena
CourtneyAmberA from Ohio
I loved this overnight moisturizer during the summer! I also used it on my face when I had melasma while I was pregnant with both of my daughters. If ever used during the day make sure to use extra sunscreen.
Gina Kay from Nashville
After using another night cream for 2 years, I decided to try the lesser expensive rapid tone repair night moisturizer by Neutrogena. Unfortunately, my wrinkles are no better and may be a little worse. Guess I'll have to return to my previous expensive cream, i'm Disappointed.
My skin is burned from using this product
Val150 from Alpharetta, Ga
After using the Rapid Tone Repair moisturizer, I noticed severe redness and dark patches on my forehead. It looks as if the skin was burned. I already has nice and acne free skin. Since the usage of this product, I noticed redness, peeling and an out break of acne. I had no acne prior to using this product. I discontinued using this product and now I'm experiencing beard like course hairs growing through my forehead. I felt a coarseness when I wiped my forehead with the back of my hand and took a closer look with a magnifying mirror to look closer at what was causing the coarseness on my forehead. I saw tiny hairs growing through my forehead. This was horrible and shocking. This product has triggered hairs to grow on the forehead. My forehead now has dark spots, a zillion tiny lines, roughness and a big dark round
patch (sun burned) on one side of my
forehead. Not a happy camper. Neutrogena, if you read this, please refund my monies and stop selling this product to consumers. Please remove the ingredient that is causing the burned skin and whatever the ingredient that is causing the hair growth on the forehead.

I used to have fair and flawless skin until I turned 36 a couple of years ago. Seasonal "freckles" decided to stay permanently and get worse, and my pores were becoming visible. Other brands like Murad workes but so expensive, so I bought this a week ago since it is a reputable brand and much more affordable. I was so surprised! Within a few days, my hyperpigmentation started to fade, pores becoming less visible, and my skin glows. It's been a week, and I am excited to continue using this.
stormy blue from Pittsburgh, PA
I have used many of the products in both the Rapid Wrinkle and Rapid Tone Repair lines because they contain scientifically proven (generally, not just tests by Neutrogena) anti-wrinkle/even skin-tone ingredients. Although these products are a great value, I don't want to waste any money on ineffective products; I want to buy items that I am sure will work beyond just making my skin feel or look nice temporarily. I received a great compliment about a month ago: my hair stylist, who is a couple of years younger than I am and sees women of all ages every day, up close, was shampooing my hair and said, "You don't have a single wrinkle. How is that possible?" I told her, "Neutrogena!" I have been pleased with the results of these products for many years.
So far- so good
Farmer girl from Orange County, CA
I'm new to retinol products, but I've done my homework and I'm starting slowly, apply it every other night and I'm combining the serum with a facial cream.
The results are AMAZING!
MommaLaner from Pa
I bought this product along with the ultra gentle cleanser 3 weeks ago and have been using it every night after cleansing. This product contains retinol so if your skin is not use to this ingredient it may take 2-4 weeks to adapt. This is my first time using a retinol product so I did feel some stinging and noticed red dry spots the first week; however, I had faith and kept trying and I'm so glad I have!!! My face looks and feels amazing! In two weeks I could physically see my skins color blending... dark spots are vanishing and my face is so smooth! Not going to lie I was slightly skeptical after reading the reviews but because the price was affordable I gave it a try anyways and I don't regret that decision at all! My sister who uses very expensive face products is amazed with my results after such a short time frame and is considering the switch to neutrogena. My only regret is that I did not take a picture of my face before starting this product because like I said after three short weeks the results are astonishing! Can't wait to try more products from this company!
** Also I have eczema and since using this product along with the cleanser I've had zero flare ups; product does not affect my eczema.
Tried and true
BoomerBabe from Grand Rapids MI
This nightime cream does a great job of making my skin look better, and the fact it is a drugstore brand at a good price makes me even happier. I switch it off every other night with the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair.
Timbers from Marlette, MI
I have been using the toner morning and night for 1 week and already noticing brighter skin. No greasy feeling and smells great.
