Most Helpful Positive Review Helps with adult acne
I use this product ngihtly to help with my adult acne. The AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) in the product helps exfoliate my skin overnight and when I use it nightly I have a significant reduction in breakouts. However, I gave it 4 stars instead of five for two reasons: First, it's expensive. Over twenty dollars for a smallish tube. The second reason is that the formula has changed slightly and it is not as effective as the old formula. About two weeks after using a new tube, I felt that it wasn't helping my skin look as smooth as in the past and when I compared the ingredients on the box to an old box I had saved, I noticed some ingredients have been changed and and other moved toward the end of the ingredient list which means there is now a smaller amount of those ingredients in the product. I don't know for sure that the change in the formula has decreased its effectiveness but I believe it has as I have used this product for years and had never had a problem before. I hopoe they go back to the original formula. This new one is still pretty good but not great like the old one.
Most Helpful Critical Review It aged my eyes at least 5 years
I used the product at night per directions on the tube, with my normal night moisturizer on top. There was bearable tingling, no big deal and the smell did not bother me. By the second use my skin was red, sensitive and pealing. The worst part was I look at least five years older. The small wrinkles around my eyes are now deep and plentiful. My husband and adult kids noticed it. I used it for two more days thinking it would get better.... it did not. I am now on day three of NOT using it and using more of my eye cream hoping it will go back, not yet

Mara from Los Angeles, CA
For reference, I am 23 years old. I had a really bad breakout to biotin and my rose hip oil because my skin is acne prone (learned that after). The oil clogged my pores and the biotin dosage was too much that it broke me out on my chin area. The pimples left scars or were taking a long time to heal. I was trying to buy products with AHA because that helps with clogged pores + acne. I already had this product unopened in my cabinet from an impulse purchase and noticed the label said it contained AHA. And wow!! In less than a week my hyperpigmentation has reduced, scars from pimples are not as noticeable, breakouts themselves are close to healing all the way. I wake up with clearer skin. I'm sure with more use, I won't even see much of my hyperpigmentation or scars at all. This is honestly my holy grail product. I would recommended anything with AHA, but this is the product I tried that contained it and it works so I won't be looking any further for another product.
helps fight acne!

I'm in my early twenties. I don't have any wrinkles yet but I use this for my hyperpigmentation and acne scars. I broke out in cystic acne earlier this year and this has helped fade my scars and helped prevent new breakouts. It does take about a month to see results though. Not a quick fix.
Amy from Las Vegas
I tried this product for some time and ended up not liking it. Left my skin red, itchy and dried my skin out horribly. I wouldn't recommend for sensitive skin.
LinH from Florida
I've been using for a few months now and can't see any difference in my skin texture, fine lines or breakouts. I don't like the strong fragrance either. Will not repurchase. It's light and not greasy so two stars.
I just don't like the smell
Rebecca from Miami FL
I don't like the smell but I just started using the product
I will be ordering more

I'm in my 40s and have been using this product for a couple of years. ROC night cream does a good job of keeping wrinkles at bay. The cream smells nice, it's not perfumed or over powering and it is just the right consistency for my combination skin.
Cait from Dallas, Texas
I have only been using this product a few days and can tell the difference. Don't listen to the one star reviews that complain of red and flaky skin; had they done research, they would know that this is a very normal initial reaction to retinol, an ingredient that product uses, during an adjustment period while the retinol essentially retrains your skin to make more collagen. Yep, you heard that right: it stimulates collagen production! So yes, be aware that it will dry out your skin, but it is worth it!! That is a sign it is working!!
Great for face and neck
Arlean from Biloxi MS
It works on smoothing face and neck for me
Got rid of my fine lines, acne and scarring.
Booboo838 from San Jose, CA
I have been using this product about every other for a couple weeks now and it's completely transformed my skin. Although I'm in my mid 20's, my skin has been dull and acne prone. Nothing I was doing was working. Until I found this.
It's made my skin look 3 or so years younger. It's amazing!!! My skin looks so glowy. It's gotten rid of all of my skin problems. I don't break out anymore. My skin is almost even in tone. It's gotten rid of my forehead and smile lines. My under eyes need a bit more work. But that's expected because I have actual wrinkles there. I do see a big improvement. Overall I look younger and my skin tone is the best it's ever been. The packaging says that you don't even see full results until after a month!!
I just use about a nickel-quarter size amount, rub my finger tips together and start on the outside of my face, by my cheekbones. Work that up into the temples, then down into the jaw. Then I do the chin, nose and carefully around the under eye.
Dries very quickly. Use a heavy moisturizer on top. Slight redness is normal. Make sure to wear a very strong sun screen and wear protective clothing when you know you'll be out in direct sun.
I highly recommend you give this a try! It's fantastic!
I have used this product for years. Love it !
Flash from Marco Island, Fl
So far so good!
Kay from Bend,OR
I really like this product, I have been using it for 2 weeks and the results are amazing! There is an adjustment period but truly it was not bad at all. I anticipated it to be a lot worse. I started to get dry and red around my eyes and then backed off to every other day and now I'm back to every day and it was so problem at all.

This stuff works!! I took a before and after photo and after just TEN days I saw a difference. Make sure to use your ulta coupons!
kitkat from Tennessee
Ive hit my 50s now & in my 30s & 40s i tried to find the perfect anti aging cream. But to no avail, when you fight laugh lines, wrinkles around your eyes progressing & sensitive skin for break outs there wasnt anything that didnt break me out or had no improving qualites. Until now. Ive used this product for about 6 months to a year & have been blown away on the results. No break outs & i look younger now than in my 40s .
JMS from WI
This product was an extreme disappointment! I had high hopes that this product would help with my fine lines. I'm going to go back to the No7 products. The No7 serum doesn't dry out my face and is light and doesn't have an odor either.
Good product, but...
Lauren from Denver, CO
This product is pretty good. However, the very heavy fragrance is a really big turn off for me. I've been using this product for about 1.5 months and while I notice some results, it's not AS much as I was hoping. I will keep using until the tube is gone, and hope for continuously better results, but will probably look for a higher quality retinol product with no fragrance. I will say this is a very good beginner though.
Also, just for the record, many of these 1 star reviews are nearly all written within ONE week of beginning use! Haven't you heard of the retinol uglies? It's a real thing. Retinol is a really powerful exfoliant and your skin will have a long adjustment period. Burning, peeling, stinging, dryness, etc. are all completely normal reactions that should go away within 4 weeks. Also, don't apply this to your eyelids! Many of the 1 star reviews keep mentioning their eyes getting swollen. *Eye roll* Please do more research on the products you're using, and what to expect before bashing a brand! My skin looked like absolute garbage for the first week of starting this product! And it's been said by many dermatologists that it could take up to 6 months to see the full benefit of retinol use. You absolutely have to use this stuff consistently, and fight through the "uglies" or your skin will never adjust to it and see results. It's definitely a commitment. BE PREPARED.
I would like to buy it again

hurts the eyes badly

I used it once and had terrible eye lid inflammation afterwards.
Won't go to bed without it!!!
Jadenicole from Ohio
Not only is it for deep wrinkles but also great for acne!!!
42 and love my skin! Thanks Roc!
Pants:) from Reading, Michigan
I use this product morning and night. I've been using wrinkle cream since I was 21, and I'm 42 now. I also use Roc's 5 in 1 hexinol cream, morning and night. My skin isn't sensitive to this. The key is to be faithful, and start using wrinkle cream early.
This stuff works!
Dee from North Myrtle Beach, SC
I have abused my face for years. Between laying on the beach, golfing, and riding a motorcycle my face has a lot of sun damage. I thought I would try this cream. I started using it March 11, 2019. I took the second picture May 11, 2019. It significantly reduced my age spots and brightened my complexion. I put it on every night. It does not take a lot. I am still on the same tube, but I will probably need another within a week. I had no adverse reactions from it or sensitivity at all. I'm hooked and will be buying it again!
I have bought this product many times before.
Phoenix Di from Phoenix, AZ
I use it every night after I wash my face.
Christina from Iowa
The first 2 weeks you felt burn and redness! That's not product allergic! Please be aware of! After that your skin will get used to the products and become normal! I love ROC products! Thank you so much ❤️
Isa from Jacksonville, FL
After reading many reviews, I went ahead and purchased this because it was on sale. Used only a few nights and to my dismay, I now have deep wrinkles. Prior to using this, I did not have any wrinkles, but now, I have them under my eyes and around my mouth. I'm only in my late 30's and now look older. I reverted to using my essential oils and Neutrogena.
The best over the counter retinol product
Chloegrl from Chicago
I've used this for many years and when I've stopped and tried other retinol products I always return to this one. It's a great night cream, when you wake the following morning your skin feels and looks smoother and hydrated. My fine lines are much less noticeable due to this product. The full strength eye cream is the best, also!
Will never stop using this!
SML90 from GA
I have sensitive skin that is also acne prone and bordering on the oily side. I am 29 years old and have finally in the last few years found an effective skincare routine that prevents breakouts, but am now dealing with post-acne marks (mainly depressed scars- not as much hyperpigmentation- from one summer in college that my skin went a bit haywire with cystic hormonal acne) and the beginning of wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. My wrinkles are very mild and only noticeable if I smile, but I wanted something that would prevent them from worsening rapidly. I started using this night cream all over my face- including over my upper cheeks and temples where I have mild acne pock marks. My marks are noticeable in bad lightening but not in good lightening/daytime, so I have considered laser but never went through with it. Unbelievably enough, after only a week of using this cream all over my face, my acne pock marks have almost disappeared!! I wake up with plumped, refreshed, even toned AND very smooth textured skin every day. I never ever thought a topical would be able to improve my skin's texture so much and am so excited to see further results after a month, 6 months, year of using this. (disclaimer: thus far, I haven't seen much improvement in my crow's feet or small forehead wrinkle, but I'm willing to keep waiting on that!)
