I have tried at least 3-4 different brands to take care of my dark spots, and non have worked. Some have made my oily skin, more oily, which has resulted in acne. Others have dried out my skin and caused redness. This product has been incredible! After using it for just 4 days I saw a noticeable difference around my forehead and chin. Everyday it seems to lighten the dark spots! After using it for a couple of weeks my forehead is all cleared up! I aslo found it to soften my skin. Funny thing is that I am 17 years old and I didn't realize this was made for older people, but it really has worked well for me! The money was well spent and I will continue buying this product! Thank you Neutrogena!
Reading over all of the reviews is very interesting. This product apparently works wonders for some, but for others does little or even aggravates problems. I'm afraid that i'm in the latter group. Maybe this product is very good for certain ages and skin types and very bad for others. I have drier, older skin and was hoping that this would, in addition to giving me younger looking skin overall, erase some brown spots. The first night I applied this, the scent and the retinol bothered me so much that I had to remove it all. In fairness, retinol in general bothers my eyes, so this was not my first problem with it (and i've never continued to use it), So i thought that if I just applied the Neutrogena to one large spot on my cheek that I could at least remove the one spot . The Repair did not work in one, two, three, or four weeks. What it did do was to lighten the skin around the brown patch, so now I have a light ring around the patch, which now looks darker by contrast. Need I say more? Not a happy customer though I have loved the brand Neutrogena and benefitted from many of its other products over the years.
I was looking for a simple moisturizer and have used ones with sunscreen in them before, but after just a few days of using this the results were terrible. I do not have sensitive skin, though it can be dry, and I have switched face products multiple times. This left my skin with large red patches all over that burned from just being in the sun. It also caused the skin to peel and flake. I have never experienced anything like this with my skin before, and will never be buying neutrogena products again, considering this is meant to be a simpler product.
It fell and broke. Didnt have a chance to use it. So sad.
I bought this product a month ago and just it until a few days ago. I didn't see much improvement with one bottle and nothing fades in a week like what the information on the box says but I will say that my skin was more moisturized
At 62, my skin is somewhat uneven in color and texture. The cute freckles of youth now look weird. Over the summer, I ran out of Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Night Moisturizer, and tried another product. After about a month, I really didn't like the way I looked -- my facial skin seemed less resilient, splotchier, and dry. So I got some more Neutrogena, and now I like my face better. The skin has some bounce and plumpness to it, and the color is more uniform. I use the sunscreen Rapid Wrinkle Repair in the daytime to protect against further damage, too.
I have been using this for two weeks. And omg my skin has improved soooo much!!! I have very stubborn skin. And lately I have gotten so many breakouts it’s disturbing. This product does purge your skin so be ready to look worse before you look better. But I noticed that it brought everything clogging my pores gradually to the surface. Now most of my breakouts are gone. And I can see the tone of my skin going back to normal. It feels really smooth and soft. You must give this time to work so I recommend patience. The worse tour skin is the longer it might take. But it’s sooooo worth it!!!
