Review

Anyone interested in improving the skin around their eyes might consider ROC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream. This product is from a long established and well known manufacturer of skin care products. In fact, the ROC brand has been around since 1957, when it was founded in France, and is now a Johnson & Johnson company.

ROC Eye Cream claims to fight the appearance of deep wrinkles and crows feet in twelve weeks, plus reduce under eye dark circles and puffiness in four weeks of use as instructed.

User Reviews

The majority of users have been happy and satisfied with their results while using this product. Most reviews do say that you can’t expect immediate or overnight results, but that if used for the four to twelve weeks specified—it works and there is a visible improvement of skin around the eye area.

Quite a few people were thrilled at the way it reduced under eye puffiness and lessened the appearance of dark circles. Many reported diminished lines, wrinkles and crows feet. A lot of people stated that the ROC eye cream worked better than a much more expensive cream of a similar type.

Of the small percentage of less than glowing reviews, the theme seemed to be that it didn’t work or make a noticeable difference.

Pros and Cons

  • All in all, the pros definitely seem to outweigh the cons of this product.
  • You can purchase it at all sorts of places, both online and off. It doesn’t cost a small fortune. Going by the reviews, it does make a significant improvement in the skin around your eyes.
  • The main theme of the bad reviews was that it didn’t bring any visible results. Of course, the upside to this is that although for some people it might not have done anything good; it didn’t do anything bad, either, with rare reports of any allergic type reaction.

Conclusion

When all is said and done, if you are looking for a cream that will improve fine lines, wrinkles around your eyes; or dark circles and puffiness….without paying an arm and a leg….ROC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream might work well.
