Hi There! Long time, no talk,
If I’m being completely honest, whenever I get a notification from Influenster declaring that I’ve been put on the list to receive a new Vox Box, I’m always a little skeptical. Why these products? Why was I chosen? After being notified that I was receiving their new Fall beauty product round up box, I was skeptical but excited to try some new products I had never heard of.
One of the products in my Vox Box this time around was the RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream. Just to the touch, it felt luxurious, a characteristic that I actively seek out. The small triangular-shaped tube of eye cream almost felt like metal and is adorned with gold-colored accents. It’s actually quite pretty.
Retinol. That caught my eye when reading the ingredients. Retinol in its purest form is the same coppery, yellow color as turmeric, so creams that claim to have retinol in them should have tints of yellow depending on the potency. Upon the first squeeze, I could just slightly tell that there was a very faint yellow color, almost invisible to the naked eye, maybe it was my mind playing tricks on me. However it may be, I was happy because my face can be not only sensitive to new products but also sensitive to products with powerful ingredients such as retinol. I knew I could ease my way into this one without causing damage especially to delicate under eye skin. Already, a good sign.
I suffer from severe dark circles under my eyes. Whether it’s genetic or just usual fatigue, I am always looking for products to correct this huge insecurity. Nothing has ever made quite an impact as this one product. The RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream is a MUST for real if you’ve ever felt the same way.
I wanted to be diligent. Use it twice a day, once in the morning and once at night, for at least two weeks in order to really give it a fair shot. I had low expectations that were quickly exceeded. Even after a couple days, I could tell a difference. Over the course of the next two weeks with habitual use, I noticed significant difference in my under-eye color. Skin that was once dull, dark, almost lifeless was now hydrated, plump, brighter and more firm. I saw a reduction of fine lines and this specific area of my skin just appeared more awake than its been in a very long time.
During these cooler, more harsh Winter months ahead, I think it is so important to switch out products we use on a daily basis because our bodies are going to be reacting differently to the changing temperatures. Skin is the first thing that will be affected given that it’s our largest organ. Skin will feel drier and hair will feel more brittle, so swapping out products you used in the Summer for products that will actively work to combat those issues is critical. Changing out my old eye cream for the RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for my skin.
For best use, I would recommend using this product twice a day. Once in the morning right when you wake up and once again in the evening after washing off the day’s dirt and grime. Giving the retinol time to work overnight is the ultimate holy grail, so apply a little more heavily at night. A tip I picked up after seeing one of my favorite bloggers, Jenny Cipoletti, post about this brand as well is to freshen up your eyes for those busy on-the-go days by reapplying lightly under your eyes throughout the day giving your skin the extra moisture and boost it needs during these brutal weather conditions. If you live in the Midwest, you know that the worst is yet to come! If you are interested in trying this AMAZING product, you can find it directly on the RoC website for $23 here, at Amazon for $16 here or at Target for $16 here. Wanted to provide different options as I know people can be loyal to certain brands! I honestly cannot believe how affordable the cost is because I think this cream is so luxurious and works so well that it could go for so much more. Snag it as soon as you can and I can’t wait for you to see the results too!
I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
