RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer


WHAT IT IS:
An anti-aging face lotion with SPF 30
WHAT IT DOES:
This contains one of the best anti-aging ingredients available to date in a nonprescription product: retinol. It also has broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreens and is noncomedogenic and oil-free.
KEY INGREDIENTS:
Pure, stabilized retinol (helps stimulate collagen production and reduces the appearance of wrinkles); oxybenzone and avobenzone (sunscreens); vitamin E (antioxidant); glycerin (moisturizes)
HOW IT FEELS/SMELLS/LOOKS:
It comes in an airtight aluminum tube to keep the retinol from breaking down; it is a medium-weight cream that doesn't feel greasy; there is a slight medicinal odor.
WHY WE LIKE IT:
Dermatologists rave about retinol, and this offers a potent dose to help make lines look smoother over time. The addition of glycerin helps counteract the dryness retinol can bring on, and broad-spectrum UV filters prevent future damage.
