Review – Can RoC Retin-Ox Wrinkle Filler Cream Eliminate Wrinkles?

 

I have heard and read numerous good reviews on this brand RoC, a Johnson & Johnson brand, and have always wanted to try this brand for the longest time. One thing that hold me back is their potent ingredient – Retinol.

Retinol, the mildest form of vitamin A, may cause birth defects and it should not be used by women who are pregnant. As you guys should know by now that I was before desperately trying for a baby hence I do not want to risk my chance for that.

RoC, the french anti-aging skin care experts, has been at the forefront of skin care innovation. It has developed the first hypoallergenic skincare products in 1957 and Retinol Actif Pur, the first pure and stabilized form of vitamin A, a pioneer treatment in the visible reduction of wrinkles in 1995.

RoC was the first to formulate stabilized Retinol, a scientific proven anti-aging ingredient and RoC products are primarily sold in the skin care sections of drug stores nationwide. 

A colleague of mine has given me this RoC Retin-Ox Wrinkle Filler Cream sample and I was looking forward to try my first RoC product actually.

Product profile

RoC Wrinkle Filler combines the anti-wrinkle properties of Retinol with the immediate filling properties of hyaluronic acid in a rich moisturising formula. Your skin looks visibly smoother, the appearance of wrinkles is reduced. 

Ingredients

The key ingredient, Retinol, is the mildest and non-prescription form of vitamin A. Studies have shown that vitamin A stimulates the production of new skin cells, increases cell turnover and build collagen. Unlike Retin-A and Renova – the more potent and prescription form of vitamin A which can cause irritation, Retinol is less likely to get irritated and therefore is ideal for people who are starting out on vitamin A.

RoC Retin-Ox Wrinkle Filler Cream also contains hyaluronic acid, a good water-binding agent, which helps to plump the skin and visibly smoothing wrinkles.

Other beneficial ingredients are …. ascorbic acid (a form of vitamin C) and tocopheryl acetate (also known as vitamin E) which are good antioxidants.

Allantoin is an effective anti irritant and dihydroxy methyl chromone is claimed to boost the anti-aging performance of hyaluronic acid and retinol, and helps to balance skin.

Review

Although RoC Retin-Ox Wrinkle Filler Cream is claimed to help rapidly smoothes the appearance of wrinkles, plumps and smoothes skin but some reports have shown that the amount of retinol on RoC Retin-Ox Wrinkle Filler Cream is barely a dusting and therefore the skin won’t receive much or benefit from it.

So after a close up examining, I have noticed very slight and faintly visible improvement on fine lines at the forehead and areas below crows feet. But there is no visible improvement on deeper lines and wrinkles like crows feet and nasalabial folds. There is also no effect on skin moisture and texture though.

I like the smooth and slight creamy texture and it does not leave my skin feeling greasy at all.

RoC Retin-Ox Wrinkle Filler Cream, a 30ml day and night moisturizer, is Quality Standards Formulated to minimise the risk of allergy and Non-comedogenic that would not clog pores. It can be applied in the morning as a base for make-up, and/or at night to your face and neck.
