Where I got it: I got sent this for reviewing purposes and I have been wanting to try this line from Neutrogena for a while now. You can get these from any large supermarkets, pharmacies , Farmers, etc. The serum and the eye cream are both RRP$39.99 each.

What I got: I am trying out the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair serum and eye cream. The range contains a unique combination of the following anti-aging essentials: Retinol SA to smooth wrinkles and reduces the appearance of age spots, Glucose Complex to help boost Retinol SA to accelerate skin surface activity for rapid results reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and Hyaluronic Acid to moisturise, replenish and rejuvenate the look of skin. It claims to provide visible results in a week!

How I find it:

Rapid Wrinkle Repair serum: This is a 29mL tube of serum with a pump so that it is hygienic and provides a measured amount of product. I use this after cleansing and softening (I am loving Shiseido’s Ibuki Softening Concentrate at the moment. A staple in my routine), I use 1 full pump of this serum (about a pea size) and gently apply it all over my face. The serum was light and quickly absorbed and the texture is velvety and easily smoothed out. The box states that there may be a slight tingling sensation and redness and I did feel a little tingling and itchy after about 10 minutes around my hairline area, but not for long.  After that I apply my moisturiser and a sunscreen (VERY IMPORTANT when using a Retinol cream, otherwise you will burn the skin).

Above: The serum is a little yellow-tinted with a bit of light-reflecting particles. This is about half a pump.

Rapid Wrinkle Repair serum: This is a 14mL tube of eye cream. I use this after moisturiser and I use a small amount on my index finger and apply with light dabbing motion around my eye area. The eye cream is moisturising but not greasy so it is absorbed easily. I can’t really see the eye cream working yet, but I guess eye cream can take a bit of time to really work. But so far, no increase in fine lines and my eye area feels comfortable so I’d say its giving my eye area the moisture that it needs. I can use a concealer over this after it is absorbed. I also make sure I apply some sunscreen that is suitable for the eye area so I won’t burn the skin.

Above: The texture of the eye cream is just right and it does not have a scent so it will not irritate eyes.

Overall: After the first use of the serum, my skin felt so smooth overnight! I love the texture of the serum and how it feels on my skin during and after application. I do notice that after a few days of use, the serum did give me a bit of itchiness around my hairline area (I wonder if this is the cause), but my skin is looking more clear than before. I don’t have wrinkles yet, but I do have fine lines and I do feel that the serum is helping my skin to exfoliate and get rid of dead skin cells for cell renewal. Loving these products!

Repurchase? Yes for the serum, but not sure of the eye cream. I will probably try the moisturiser as well so they all work as a complete set.
