Neutrogena Anti-Wrinkle deep wrinkle daily & night moisturizer review



I've been using Neutrogena's day and night retinol moisturizers from their Ageless Intensives Anti-Wrinkle, Deep Wrinkle line for about 18 weeks now. I thought it's about time I let you in on my thoughts about these products in case you're curious to know what they're like.

Active Ingredients
Retinol speeds up cell turn over so that you've constantly got newer skin on the surface of your face. It's basically a chemical exfoliator. This helps with wrinkles, dark (age) spots and acne scarring.

Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring chemical in all of our bodies. It increases a cell's ability to hold water, giving a moisturizing, and plumping effect.

Neutrogena Ageless Intensives Anti-Wrinkle deep wrinkle daily moisturizer

Pros
Unlike some brands, the size of your tube is about the size of the box, so I feel they're honest about your quantity of product
I've experienced outstanding blemish control
Leaves skin soft
Visible improvement of dark spots
Visible improvement with fine lines
Day cream has sunscreen, although it's SPF 15, so not very high
Each tube used as directed lasts me 16 weeks

Cons
I do need another moisturizer after using this requiring an extra step in my routine.
Skin may seem worse in the first week or two as sebum is brought to the surface
The day cream smells faintly of cat pee, but fades quickly.
Parabens are used as preservatives. Many people like to avoid these. For more info on parabens, look here
I've noticed the scent and results fade towards the end of the tube. It would be better if 2 half size tubes were provided to maintain freshness.

Will I keep using
Neutrogena Ageless Intensives Anti-Wrinkle deep wrinkle
daily and night moisturizer?
For a short while in the last 18 weeks I reduced my use of these creams to try out some other moisturizers for the blog. Unfortunately my blemish prone skin played up in a big way, and I had to go back on. I also found that during my time with less Ageless Intensives moisturizers, my skin seemed thicker and more pigmented, so I was needing to get back into manual exfoliating and masks, which are time consuming. I have re-purchased, and I'm well into my second tubes. Before buying next time though, I will look at other brands for a similar product that doesn't contain parabens. I can't seem myself going off retinol in the foreseeable future.

Would you, or have you used retinol and/or hyaluronic acid skin care?

  1. Hello lovely!! This sounds really good, though the smell does not, hahaha! I think retinol works really well, I used it a lot as a teenager as my skin was terrible. Though, I don't use it much now. I hope you can find other products with the parabens in it, I try to avoid this too!! Have a gorgeous weekend doll xx p.s. yes, I was inspired by the other post to make my dress from paper, haha ;-)

  2. Oh the smell - however faint! Put me right off these, haha! Otherwise, they sound great! Retinol and Hyaluronic acid sound like good things to have!

    I went into super drug the other day to get a BB cream with hyaluronic acid in it - probably after reading something you wrote about it, and the lovely SA who helped me suggested another product would be better. I cannot remember the name, but it's a DD cream instead of a BB cream? I do like it though, I'm using makeup a lot less and sticking with the DD cream.

  5. LOL at the cat pee remark! HAHAHAHA Susannah! I nearly fell out my chair. It sounds awesome. I haven't tried Neutrogena in ages, so I appreciate this review. I know what it's like to like something but still continue to look. I like that you really took time and tested it out. That's so important.

  9. I'm sorry but your cat pee comment made me laugh. I don't think there is a worse possible smell for beauty products.

    I do use a prescription tretinoin cream. I think it is a miracle for my acne prone skin.

    And I like to buy hyaluronic acid in bulk and just add it to my moisturizer.

  11. Interested in VOIP or backing up your contacts with a PIM app.

    People shop using apps, they play games using apps,
    and they even arrange cab pick-ups through using apps on android devices.
    In the rapid development of smart phones and mobile applications,
    they are playing an important role in today's modern society and business world, while
    Web-based applications implemented gradually become a trend.

  13. Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems
    with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
