Roc Skin Care Review

Overview

Roc Skin Care is a very recognizable brand of skin care products that can commonly be found in many different chain retail stores. Roc Skin Care uses pure and active ingredients that help your skin look healthier and younger. The official Roc website claims that all of their skin care products don’t just cover up problems, but also actually improve the user’s complexion in the long run.

Roc skin Care was founded over 60 years ago by a French pharmacist named Jean-Charles Lissarrague and his colleagues. Roc Skin Care first hit the US shelves in 1999 and has been a good seller ever since. Two anti-wrinkle lines are available on the official Roc website and these are the Roc Retinol Correxion line and the Retinol Actif Pur line. Both of these feature the Roc retinol formula, which uses concentrated Vitamin A that has been proven to help eliminate fine lines while keeping your skin smooth.

Product Details

The two anti-aging lines available from Roc Skin Care both contain the popular ingredient Retinol. Retinol claims to stimulate a user’s skin into renewing itself more quickly than it can on its own. This can keep your skin’s elasticity from degrading and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The Roc Retinol Correxion line consists of the Deep Wrinkle Moisturizer SPF 15, Deep Wrinkle Night Cream, Eye Cream, Deep Wrinkle Serum, and Hand Repair SPF 15. The Roc Retinol Actif Pur line consists of a Daily Moisturizer and Night Moisturizer.

The active ingredients list for each product is easy to find, but we can’t help but notice there is a lack of popular wrinkle fighting ingredients such as Matrixyl 3000 or other new peptides. Instead, these products rely entirely on Retinol as the main anti-aging substance. Retinol may make your skin sensitive to sunlight so you are highly encouraged to use extra sunscreen with a higher SPF than you usually do, and to be aware of how much time you are spending in the sun.

The Good

  • Roc anti-aging products contain Retinol.
  • Roc Skin Care products can be found at many retail and drug stores and you can easily order the products online.

The Bad

  • Roc Skin Care products don’t seem to contain any proven anti-wrinkle ingredients.
  • Roc products all seem to contain parabens, which are synthetic preservatives that may have an adverse effect on the skin if used over a long period of time.
  • No money back guarantee can be found on the official website.

The Bottom Line

Roc Skin Care is certainly a very popular brand within the skin care industry, but most of their attention seems to be on moisturizing creams and lotions. Their anti-aging line featuring retinol may be a good choice for people who like what prescription creams like Retin-A have to offer but want it in a lower, non-prescription strength. While the Roc Skin Care anti-aging products may help renew your skin, we recommend that you find a product with some potent anti-wrinkle ingredients such as Matrixyl 3000 to really help out with existing wrinkles.
