RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream
My favorite product of all time (or at least one of them)!
The French do it right when it comes to wrinkles! I’ve been using RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream for a very long time and I have to say, I really love this stuff.
I can’t even remember when I tried it for the first time, all I remember it was in drugstore, maybe CVS or Walgreens. I was in my 30s at the time and starting to get worried about the lines around my eyes. I read about Retinol and all of the great things it could do for your skin, and saw this ROc stuff on the shelf. It looked expensive for what it was, so I went home and read some reviews online.
To my surprise, it got great reviews. I have noticed over the years that some products get really great reviews from users, but most don’t. The fact this product got some good reviews surprised me.
There are various versions of this product, but I decided to try the deep wrinkle night cream so it could soak in overnight, and use a different moisturizer during the day.
Here is what the company says about their own product.
After 12 weeks, even deep wrinkles are visibly diminished.
Wake up to healthy-looking skin. This unique formula is designed to work through the night—when skin is believed to be most receptive—to smooth and visibly reduce the appearance of even your deep wrinkles.
Contains a combination of RoC®RETINOL and a mineral complex of magnesium, zinc and copper that has been optimized to improve the appearance of even deep wrinkles.
Water, Dimethicone, Glycerin, Ethylhexyl Hydroxystearate, Isodecyl Neopentanoate, Tetrahydroxypropyl Ethylenediamine, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Gylceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Ceteareth-20, Steareth-10, Phenoxyethanol, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Caprylyl Glycol, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Squalane, Glycolic Acid, Fragrance, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Methylparaben, Citric Acid, Xanthan Gum, Propylparaben, Retinol, Polysorbate 20, BHT, Disodium EDTA, Polysorbate 60, Ascorbic Acid, Magnesium Aspartate, Zinc Gluconate, Copper Gluconate
Those are a lot of ingredients, and some are controversial (methylparaben, propylparaben) and you’ll notice the most interesting ingredient, Retinol, is listed near the bottom. True, there’s not a lot of Retinol in this product, but for me at least, it seems to have been effective.
I’m not developing those super deep wrinkles (yet) and I think Retinol has has a lot to do with it. I’ve been using this RoC product for at least the last seven years.

- You only need a little
- Very slight scent (although some people complain about it, they must have the noses of bloodhounds)
- Creamy consistency
- Seems to work really well!
- A little lasts a long time
- Easy to find, most stores carry it
What I Don’t Like about RoC Deep Wrinkle Night Cream
- Seems kind of pricey, but I’m kind of frugal, it’s really a bargain compared to other products like this
- Would like it to have a bit more Retinol
Overall, this is my go-to nighttime regime, and it seems to be working, plus it leaves my skin nice and soft.
Way to go RoC!
