Shoppers in their 60s report 'wrinkles and creases are vastly improved' after using RoC's anti-aging cream — it's down to $20

What is it?

Signs of aging can appear out of nowhere. OK, not out of thin air, but some days lines, wrinkles, dark spots and uneven skin tone is more pronounced than others. Instead of stocking up on a 20-step skincare routine, add the RoC Retinol Correxion Max Moisturizer to your lineup. The hydrating cream works to revive tired skin with retinol and hyaluronic acid — two of skincare's most potent ingredients for youthful-looking skin. And right now, it's on sale at Amazon.

This popular cream quenches thirsty skin while fighting signs of aging with the one-two punch of retinol and hyaluronic acid.

Why is it a good deal?

A jar of this retinol goodness typically rings up at $30, but Amazon has just marked it down $20, which is the lowest price we're seeing from major online retailers. That's over 30% in savings. Also, the container also lasts well over a month, so you aren't constantly replacing it.

Why do I need this?

The RoC moisturizer hydrates, smooths and restores skin to a youthful glow. It's crafted with hyaluronic acid, which is known for its ability to penetrate the skin with moisture and to plump lines. And its RoC Retinol blend works to combat signs of aging, including pesky crow's feet, deep wrinkles, dark circles and more. Plus, it's oil-free and non-comedogenic, so pores shouldn't get clogged.

RoC's own testing found that the retinol moisturizer visibly reduced wrinkles in users after one week and also soothed dark spots and wrinkles with consistent use over eight weeks.

The cream is suited for everyday use. Just use a few dabs and massage it into your skin. It has a dreamy texture that melts right into your complexion without leaving a greasy (and gross) finish behind. But with any retinol product, it takes time for your skin to adjust. Pro tip: Before diving in, test it to see how your skin reacts. Start with every other day, then work your way up.

What reviewers say

Nearly 6,500 Amazon shoppers have given this cream a perfect five-star rating.

"This product works miraculously!" one raved. "No problems whatsoever! I have used RoC products for over 20 years, and within the past six weeks, I noticed three age spots between my forehead and the bottom of my ear ... anyway, within three nights of using this cream, one of the age spots is about half as dark as it was!"

"It works in one week. You can see your skin brighter and tighter," a second reviewer said. "I’m 70 years old, and since I started using RoC, my face feels and looks 10 years younger."

A thrilled customer in their 60s shared: "I can't say enough good things about this product. I'm 65 and had some serious wrinkles and creases going on, especially after the winter. I hated looking in the mirror. After using this product for two weeks, I have noticed a definite improvement. The wrinkles and creases aren't totally gone, but so far, they are vastly improved."

"So hydrating!" wrote another fan. "I have only used this for maybe a week. I am loving the hydration. I understand how some may have some issues with it being a little harsh but I had only a few little stings and then that was it. I love how soft it makes my skin. And it does have immediate effects on my fine lines. I can't wait to see how it's done several weeks down the line. I'm loving it. I'm also 63 so it's got to be good!!"

Do be mindful to start slow, since retinol-containing products may cause initial irritation. "I am seeing some improvement on heavy wrinkles around my mouth that are deep and I hate. I didn’t think anything would help, but this is. However, it is pretty hard on your skin (stinging and flaking) so be sure to follow the instructions on beginning use — only every other day at first," a final user shared.

Use it daily in your skincare routine, but always pair it with an SPF!
