Most Helpful Positive Review Unexpected results halt mini science project
I hate buying things that promise but do not deliver, so I redid a favorite experiment. The plan was to treat the R side of my face with this cream and perform my normal routine on the L side. For a week, because that was the advertising promise I have never had a cream or serum or balm pass this test, since both sides of my face have looked the same at the end of the test. This time, I stopped the test after two days, the improvement was so obvious. What a wonderful surprise. My lips are plumped up, my deep wrinkles are flattening out, my smaller wrinkles are disappearing. Bravo! This is AWESOME!
Most Helpful Critical Review Problem with burning
I used this product for eight days, once a day, in the evening before bed. On the seventh day, my neck began to itch. Then when I used it on the eighth day, my face really burned and my neck has remained red, like it is burned. I am not going to use it for a while, but may try again after a week.
I have not had this problem with other skin creams I have used.

Oh my gosh. My skin. It's red, dry and itchy. Never before have I had a product do this to my skin. Tossing the rest out.
Much worse than the original.
Robert Wilson from California
The cream doesn't work nearly as well as the night moisturizer in the opaque pump bottle. This 'cream' caused my skin to lose elasticity and I developed wrinkles and folds wherever I used it. I'm trying to undo the damage this cream caused me now, very stressful. Just buy the 'night moisturizer' in the opaque pump bottle, it is better than this 'cream' stuff.

My face looks so much clearer and I have a wrinkle in my forehead that hasn't been sticking out.. usually when I apply my make up no matter what, it settles in that line. I've been using this every night and I notice a difference. I also have very sensitive skin and this does not irritate it at all. I use it along side a toner and serum, and I apply it with my skin still slightly damp... just my personal preference. It soaks in and feels great.
I unfortunately wasn't paying attention and got the scented one ... it smells like your typical skin care with fragrance and I hate that. It doesn't fade quickly either. But it doesn't negatively affect me other than I just hate the smell. But that was my fault
I like all the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair products

Very nice product, already lines are not as visible
Good retinol drugstore moisturizer
Lee7 from USA
This moisturizer is a great way to get retinol into your skincare regime. It is packed with a powerful ingredient list that aids in preventing lines and wrinkles. It is great for 40 years plus crowd. The texture is rich and creamy and upon application, I felt a slight tingling sensation. I used it as PM moisturizer and felt my skin felt smoother over time.
Burned my skin

Georgia Peach from Atlanta
Wash my face morning and evening; use the makeup remover wipes on days I use makeup; I exfoliate weekly and love my results when I'm consistent.
A good moisturizer
Kreestor7 from USA
I like this stuff as a moisturizer because I have oily skin and don't want a product that makes me more oily (which this doesn't). As for the anti aging aspect, I haven't honestly noticed much of a difference, if any at all.
Literally burned my skin off
Claudia143 from Ashburn, VA
I have sensitive skin and Neutrogena is my one number brand for skin products, from face wash to makeup. This is first time my skin has ever reacted to a product. I even tried the Rapid Tone Repair 20% Vitamin C Serum Capsules with no problem.
I used this product for three days. I noticed after the first use (2 applications) that my skin was extremely irritated, especially around my eyes, and hurt to touch. The next morning I realized my skin was excessively peeling off in those red, irritated areas. I read the label to see that mild redness and skin flaking are normal, temporary effects, so I continued to use the product and leaving the space around my eyes. On the third day, after liberally applying lotion and wincing to heal the side effects, I applied the first application for the day and felt swollen, tingling, and irritated skin. My skin was beginning to become blotchy as well. I showered before the next application and that's when I felt more than a "mild" sensation. My skin burned when I washed my face in the shower so bad that my eyes started crying and my nose running. It was extremely painful. When I got out of the shower, I noticed the blotches were all over my face and very red. I attempted to put lotion on to soothe the pain, but the pain became even more unbearable that it caused me to cry. My face, especially still around the eyes, felt like it was on fire and peeled off. I have stopped using the product completely. The flaking was reduced; however, my skin remains extremely irritated, swollen, tender to touch, and red. I cannot put anything on my face including lotion without feeling a searing pain.
I gave this two stars instead of one because it did seem to reduce my sun/dark spots within three days. The side effects are just not worth the results for me. I physically cannot use this product without being in severe pain. I am left with swollen, red, patchy and bumped skin that I am sure when it will heal. I am not attaching photos since
I am embarrassed at the state of my face. I afraid to use this product again even with reduced use.

Trujillo from New Mexico
It's very drying and wasn't mentioned in the description. When I received the item it was mentioned on the packaging. I've only used twice.
KarenMichigan from undisclosed
I realized when I was in my 60's that the skin routine I had been following was no longer working. My skin has become more sensitive and drier. So, after year's of trial & error & lot's of money not well spent on creams that hadn't worked, I decided to give Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair a go. I've been using it twice a day for about 4 weeks now. I am very happy with it. My skin is hydrated & smooth & sort of plumped up a bit. I think I'll keep using this for a while & see what happens
I love this product!
MomA from Helotes, Tx
I just live this! It is so creamy and silky and goes on my face evenly without making it feel oily!
A "Go To" Product for me.

Easy to apply and skin very soft.

I love this product and posted about it on Facebook! After one week I saw fewer lines. I don't have many to begin with it but was a very noticeable difference was apparent. The smell is horrible but quick goes away. A little goes a long way.
Love the texture
