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.

Multi-action HEXINOL® Technology was developed to target the visible signs of aging from a different path than other anti-aging ingredients. 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.

does this product make skin tan?

3 months 2 weeks ago
Hi, I started using step-1 and 2 daily 2 weeks ago. I believe it is reducing fine lines and smoothening my skin. I love it but, my question is does metallic grey serum make skin tan? my skin tone is not white or brown or black but more towards white, I feel my face is getting darker after started using the step-1 and 2. Is this tested on all skin types? What does resurfacing serum exactly do?

Love it

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!

Wonderful product and a bargain

5 months 2 days 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.

I’ve been using this product almost every night for a month. I wasn’t noticing a difference until the fourth week. I quit smoking 45 days ago and wanted to revamp my skin. I am 49 years old. My skin looks brighter and my crows feet and lines around my mouth aren’t nearly as noticeable. So happy with this product and glad I didn’tstop taking it after not seeing immediate results.

Response from Johnson and Johnson, Roc, Company Services 5 months 1 week 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!

How to Use:

5 months 2 weeks 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.

No clear directions

I’m uncertain if I need to wait between applications between step one and step two. Also I’m unclear on how much from each tube to use. I’ve seen the company respond to others reviews by saying call the customer service line but they are only open for a limited time on weekdays- when I work and I don’t have time to make that call on my short lunch break.
