Overview

Neutrogena is the #1 dermatologist-recommended skincare brand. Neutrogena's Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream uses Retinol, the purest form of vitamin A, to combat signs of aging and improve the tone and texture of your skin. The first antioxidant to be widely used in nonprescription wrinkle creams, retinol works by penetrating deep into your skin to stimulate collagen and elastin, which smooth fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin's firmness. In their patent-pending formula, Neutrogena incorporates traditional retinol technology with a combination of Pro-Vitamin B5, Vitamin E and special moisturizers that stimulate skin's natural mechanisms to even out skin tone and build moisture levels.

You can purchase Neutrogena's Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream at your local drugstore or for $12.99 on Neutrogena.com.

Product Report Card Grade

We give Neutrogena’s Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream an A- because it is truly a great anti-wrinkle moisturizer for the price. It features an effective blend of retinol, green tea, Pro-Vitamin B5, Vitamin E and other special moisturizers that help you achieve a more youthful, radiant complexion. While this is an excellent drugstore anti-wrinkle cream, we had to deduct a few points because retinol can be irritating for some people.

Reputation

Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream Night has received excellent online reviews from customers. Not only is it incredibly affordable, many users felt that it really did make a difference in the overall appearance of their skin. It might irritate sensitive skin at first, but your skin should adjust. Make sure you don't forget to wear at least SPF 30 during the day, however, as retinol will make your skin much more sensitive to the sun.

Neutrogena Wrinkle Cream
Review submitted: 2013-10-07
I absolutely love my Neutrogena Wrinkle Cream. It is silky to the touch and makes my face feel fabulous. I have been using Neutrogena products for many years and I love this product. It has diminished fine lines and wrinkles around my eyes and mouth area. I use this every night after cleansing, toning, and moisturizing my skin and it makes my skincare routine complete. The only thing I don't like about it is the packaging. It is hard to get the cream out when it is near the end of the tube. Other than that, great product!
