About Retinol

The Anti-Aging Power of RoC®

Retinol is the #1 dermatologist recommended cosmetic age-fighting ingredient. A derivative of Vitamin A, retinol works to unclog pores, boost collagen to reduce fine lines, and speed cell turnover to even out discolorations and smooth the skin. RoC® scientists were the first to develop the methods needed to stabilize and package retinol in its pure and effective form.

It can give visible improvement in as little as 4 weeks by restoring firmness, smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving the look of discoloration and overall radiance of skin, and hydrating dry skin.

How to Use:

1 year 2 months ago
I was also seeking instructions because I’d thrown my box away. After reading reviews here I found this on Ulta’s website. Hope this helps. How to Use- The Anti-Wrinkle Treatment (Step 1) and Resurfacing Serum (Step 2) should be applied together, in equal amounts, and evenly over the entire face. Do not rinse off. Use the system every night, with Step 1 followed by Step 2, for optimal results. Although RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® MAX Wrinkle Resurfacing System is strong enough to smooth wrinkles better than a professional peel, this at-home product is formulated to be used on a daily basis. Step 1 Anti-Wrinkle Treatment with RoC® RETINOL Apply the treatment liberally over entire face. Massage into skin. You may feel a slight tightening or tingling sensation. This is normal and is a sign the product is working. Step 2 Resurfacing Serum with E-PULSE® TECHNOLOGY Apply a layer of the metallic grey resurfacing serum over the cream, to the same area. Smooth evenly over face as needed. Precautions: For external use only. When using this product, keep out of eyes. Rinse with water to remove. Stop use and ask a doctor if rash or irritation develops and lasts. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.

Help !! Do i leave on overnight n wash off on morning
Response from Johnson and Johnson, Roc, Company Services 1 year 2 months ago
Hey there! Apply step 1 all over your face, and massage into skin. Then smooth step 2 over the same areas. You can keep the product on overnight and do your regular skin care routine in the morning. We hope this helps, have a great day!

Love it

1 year 1 month ago
Love this so much. My skin feels very, very smooth. I just started it but have a question: Do I use a moisturizer with it? And if so, can that also be a ROC retinol product?

Great question! You don't need to use a moisturizer, but if you do use one we would recommend keeping to only one retinol product until your skin gets used to the retinol. Have a great day!

I love it

1 year 6 months ago
I use it for over a month now. My skin is smooth, no redness, no irritation ( I have very sensitive skin ). Fine lines around my lips and eyes almost gone. I have a deep line on my forhead and I'll see what happens with that line. It looks like it's getting better, but I can't tell for sure. Besides, my skin is alive. I don't look poofy and tired in the morning. I love it, worth the money invested.

The best product I have ever used for reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

2 years 10 months ago
I had deep wrinkles and lines on my face and have tried many products in the past. I found Roc Retinol Correxion Max Wrinkle Resurfacing System at Walgreen's and after reading decided to give it a try. I could not be more pleased. I could see a difference within 3 days. After first use I could feel the tightening of my skin which made me feel the product was working. I have tough skin but I always follow the directions exactly as described in the directions. I would always recommend a small test area before using any product especially for those with sensitive skin. I have used the product for a week than stopped as recommended and waited for two weeks having been out of town. I always use a sunscreen daily on my face,neck. Yes, I did use this product on face, neck and below neck on shoulders. I have received many complements on my skin after a weeks use. Even an old class mate told me I was beautiful and at age 76 almost 77 that means a lot. On returning home I have begun another week of use. I can definitely see a difference. I am continuing the product for although my skin already is smoother, fine lines not as noticeable and wrinkles not as deep I still would like to see more improvement. After the treatment my makeup goes on beautifully without caking into the wrinkles and fine lines. If the one week use can bring that kind of results I am excited to see what this second round will bring. Even the liver spot on the right side of my face which was about a penny size is diminished almost gone but on the left side is the larger liver spot on my cheek which I can still see but is improved. I am also interested in trying other Roc products. I am on this site this morning for I am going to recommend to relatives and friends this product but also advise doing a test on their skin before using after reading reviews. Before using this product I was almost ready to go to a plastic surgeon for a consultation on how to improve my skin. Thank you so much for developing this product and for selling it at a price for all to improve their skin that will not break the bank. I appreciate that tremendously. ROC DOES NOT LIE TO YOU! GREAT PRODUCT THAT WORKS!

Wonderful product and a bargain

1 year 2 months ago
I have been using this product for a few years now and notice a significant decrease in wrinkles on the forehead and the nasolabial folds as well as overall smoother surface, and increased skin plumpness. Although it seems costly for a drugstore product, I've found it to be more effective than more expensive skin care lines. Give it a try and keep with it! I use it on the face, neck and around the collarbone area. Of course, no product will work without faithful use of a good broad spectrum sunscreen year round-- so if you aren't willing to do that, save your money until that item is checked off. I'm very glad I finally tried this product and I hope they continue making it. I wish there were a version for the eye area as well--I think the European RoC site may offer one.

Better than Skinmedica's Expensive Retinol

5 years 10 months ago
I'm surprised by Roc's product. I've been spending over $100 for 2oz. of Skinmedica's retinol, and truth be told, this stuff works better. In just one evening, I noticed a difference. It's usually difficult for me to sleep with Retinol, for some reason it or some chemical causes insomnia, however, with Roc, I sleep fine. In fact, I can't sleep without it on because I love waking up and seeing an improvement in the morning. The smell is light and happy too. its very easy...step 1 and step doesn't take a rocket scientist to follow those steps. I only wear it at night because the sun breaks down retinol, and use SPF during the day. My boyfriend is surprised by its results too, my face is brighter, healthier, the wrinkle in my forehead is no longer there, and the fine lines around my eyes have banished. I seriously look too young for my boyfriend now! On vacation, a waiter asked if I graduated high school yet. (I'm 32). I don't know how this stuff works, but it doesn't dry out my skin, it makes me beautiful, and I'm not putting my face at risk with a peel...which I had such a bad reaction to at the medspa, that I had to go see a nurse! This is definitely the way to go. And the price is great too. It's my secret, I'm going to let my friends keep paying the expensive prices at the spa while I get better results and have money left over for a cuter outfit! (Bad friend I am!)

Arguably the 2 Best Skin Care products together !

3 years 2 months ago
It took 2-3 weeks for me to see a definite improvement in my skin's appearance, and 2-3 months before people began telling me that I looked noticeably younger. It blew me away! Make sure that you use the #2 Resurfacing Serum liberally, or you won't get the full effect. Finally, it's great that ROC sells these two items together at a substantially lower price than buying them separately. It's by far the best deal out there. Highly recommended.
