Has anyone tried this product line and what do you think of it?

I'm 30 and don't have any wrinkles at all yet so I want to prevent them from coming if possible. I've been seeing this advertised a lot of places lately, but it's really pretty inexpensive so I'm not sure how well it would work, or how good of quality the ingredients are.

My skin is sensitive, but not acne prone, oily, dry, problematic, etc...it's pretty normal other than being sensitive. Thanks 💐!!

I've only tried the Ageless Intensives Deep Wrinkle Night cream. I have been using it at night about 2 months now and really don't notice any difference as far as correcting fine lines. I am 33 and starting to show some. :sad: It however has seemed to keep me pretty much acne free, before I would get a big zit on my chin here and there. I am almost out and planning to buy something a little better; looking at La Roche Posay Redermic R.

I use the retinol night cream and there daily moisturizing sunscreen. I've been using them for about five years. I'm 32. I don't have a lot of lines and wrinkles. For a long time these were my only skin care products. Only within the last year have I been branching out to other things.
I've never had any sensitivity. I think my skin looks good for my age. I can't take day of its the Neutrogena or not. I don't think it hurt.

About a year ago I met a woman who was probably in her fifties and had amazing skin. I asked her what she used and she said coconut oil.

A few days ago I noticed my skin was getting dry, so I bought a pot of pure coconut oil. The brand was Nature's Bounty, in the vitamin aisle. I've only been using it for a few days, and I haven't broken out yet (fingers crossed). My skin absorbs it well and is really soft. It smells wonderful! Coconut is my favorite food, so it's like I'm getting a treat every time I put it on. The dogs love to smell my face after I put it on. :P I don't think I'd wear it out, though, because of the smell.

I only put it on the dry areas: lips, above lips, around mouth, cheeks, under around eyes but not too close, temples, scalp line. I don't put it on my nose, chin or forehead for fear of breakouts.

You might want to research it if you like the smell of coconut. It is hard, but melts when it touches your skin, so I just rub my fingertips in the pot until a little bit melts on my fingertips, then I touch my fingertips together to spread it, then apply it to my face.

I LOVE this line! My Derms nurse told me how great this product was about 1 1/2 years ago when I told her I can't use strong Retinols on my very sensitive skin. She specifically told me to use the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair and my skin looks great! I didn't have any problems with it at all. I was a little nervous to try it because besides having sensitive skin, I also break out easily. I recently purchased the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle serum to use during the day since I read excellent reviews about that too, love that one as well. I use a separate sun block over it. I'm 50, but most people think I'm at least 10 years younger......but that's mostly because I've protected my skin from the sun for 30 years. Daily sunblock is a must to help prevent wrinkles, even in Winter and on cloudy days! The Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair line is great for refining the skin and making it look fresher, and you can't beat the price! I usually buy it on Amazon for less than retail from a reputable seller. Good luck!

I use the eye cream as it is fantastic.

Good Housekeeping gave this top marks, over La Prarie!! Definitely worth adding this line to your routine! I am also 30 and am starting to notice a wrinkle that was probably always there but now I believe is a problem. I will let you know if it goes away. I also have one on my neck.
At our age, the anti aging skincare shopping experience is a bit odd. It is all about preventing something that you will never know if it ever needed to be prevented. I definitely recommend mixing in some highly rated drugstore products in with the "top shelf" lotions and potions.
To prevent wrinkles, make sure retinol is in your regimen (it IS in the Neutrogena rapid repair). Vitamin C is not necessarily where you need to be focusing at this point.
Do use a Clarisonic and do use an at home (reputable) microdermabrasion system and do use glycolic cleansers or masks at least twice weekly. This improves the efficacy of everything else you are putting on your skin and helps promote cellular turnover, which is now slowing down at our age!

I've been using the Night Rapid Wrinkle Repair and I have been happy with results. My skin got dry, flakey, irritated from tretinoin and other OTC retinols. With the others, I would spend weeks or sometimes months having my skin recover from irritation and dryness, totally going off any skincare with actives. With the Neutrogena, I find it gentle but very effective. Have repurchased several times without straying to another brand. :smile:

Allure ran an article a few years ago about aging skin and prevention that featured several dermatologists and this line was recommended by them as being a great line to introduce yourself to retinol. I purchased the night cream and think it has really helped. I just turned 33 and I also recommended it to my younger sister who just turned 30. The last facialist she saw was really impressed with her skin and that she was already starting to use products like this.

I've been using it for about a year and I'm also 30. I don't have a whole lot of wrinkles, just some really fine lines underneath my eyes (from a mixture of tanning when younger :cursing: and rubbing my eyes a lot), but they are definitely not getting worse and my skin looks pretty good. It's pretty inexpensive so I would say it's worth trying!

Nowhere near you.
I used to use this, but it no longer penetrates ... Instead it sits on top of my skin before flaking off.

I'm now using lush, kiehls and origins.

I use a product that is called Sublime Instant Lift. I have damaged skin from years of working in the Texas sun. I put a little on and let it start contracting the skin. To me, its pretty amazing. It pulls the skin cells and reduces the bags around the eyes and reduces the look of the heavy lines. Does it make me look 20? NO! But it makes me look younger. My son teases me about which dad is going to show up to his events. The normal or the 40ish one.
