Honest reviews


I really don’t knoooooow…

I just dunno! I saw a difference initially, like in the first week, but now, it’s been about 3 weeks it’s basically the same. No change in my face what so ever. I don’t have in realistic expectations, I have freckles and some spots from the sun, I have a few fine lines on my forehead, I’m 30 and honestly look 25 or 26. I also use the Ageless intensives tone correcting, and I like that better than this. I really don’t think it did anything for my skin, at least may not yet anyway. I am looking for a night cream to compliment it, but I don’t think this is it, I don’t think I’ll buy this again at the price that is stated.UPDATE: After using this for about a month and a half now I can not only see the difference but feel it. My pores are itty bitty, my skin feels great and the color is uniform no red acne scars no weird blotches, just the usual freckles. I think i will keep using this, I will keep buying.

Not bad

I’m more than half way done with the first bottle. At first, i wore it as a day and night moisturizer. This dried out my skin because vitamin A is drying. And also, this product doesn’t moisturize enough (i’m 19 years old, though)So I switched to use a sunscreen moisturizer that is much more oily (used both day and night,it makes me break out).So if you use a greasier moisturizer in the day and this one at night, it would be perfect.I’m using this despite my young age because i have a few freckles that i want to fade, and this product is kind of giving me results. I still have a few stubborn freckles that won’t go away though.

Did not work on my skin

I bought this product after seeing it advertised in multiple ladies magazines. I had a cluster of 4 freckles all on 1 cheek that has annoyed me for years.I applied this product day and nite with high ( perhaps too high ! ) hopes of finally lightening them up and ultimately having them fade completely.Nope. Did nothing at all. Wasted my time and money. I hope it works better for others.

helps heal and fade adult acne

I’m using this at night along with the daytime moisturizer/SPF in the same line (rapid tone repair w/30 SPF), In two weeks I’ve noticed significant fading of my red acne scars, a decrease in the number of new pimples I get, and a speedier heal-time in my current pimples. I’m not sure how neutrogena products accomplish all of this, but I’m super happy with the result on my fair, sensitive, acne-prone skin. I’m also using their stress-something-or-other labeled salicylic acid toner after I wash my face (something gentle from Biore) and Aveno’s SPF-laden tinted moisturizer.

It’s average and it works. It’s not the best product I have ever bought. It’s not the worst product I ever bought. It’s just average. Probably will not buy again.

Not too oily and smells good

I use this product every night I can remember too, it is not too oily and i can see small changes to the dark marks on my face. I will need to use the product more to see the final result, but over all it has improved the look of the dark spots. I have scaring and sun damage under my eyes that is very embarassing for me and I’ve been dying to get rid of them. This product is helping to reduce their darkness and hopefully over time will help to get rid of them, if not I may go see a dermotologist.

Only Product I Have Found That Helps Even Tone

I have tried a lot of products, and this was the only one that faded stubborn brown areas on my jawline and neck. Faded them pretty quickly too. I a very happy with this and will reorder!

Frances Christoval, TX

Grrrrrreat product!

I was amazed to see a few people mentioned, this product cause them to break out or too strong for their skin. For that reason, I was skeptical at first and glad I took a chance. I am African American and left with uneven skin tone from trying everything for my acne. I thought I would be nearly impossible to have an even skin tone and after nearly to weeks, I see significant improvement. Idk if it help with acne scars but I took care of that using zianna and needed to get even ski tone. I strongly recommend it for that purpose.

OK moisturizer.

I used to use the Neutrogena product that came in a tube but decided to give the new product a try.I find it has an improved feel and odor ( slight), and the pump is a nice touch, but in the morning I find my skin less moisturized and soft than when I use the old product. I have no problems with irritation from either product. If you have oily skin perhaps you will like the new product better. I need some moisture, especially in the winter.

Evangeline Seward, IL

Does nothing

I have now used this faithfully for 2 weeks and it has done nothing to date. I will finish out the bottle. If anything changes I will come back and update this review. But, as of this moment, all it has done is made my pillowcase sticky. No change in tone at all, no change in spots, no change in skin texture. It is as if I hadn’t done anything at all. If it had actually worked I would have been willing to pay double for the next bottle.

A No-Go For Me

I have quite oily skin,i have a med/fair complexion, and i have post blemish scars i have been desperately trying to get rid of for years, i have tried so many fade and tone creams,expensive & cheap,nothing i been trying has given me great results. I gave this product 4 months to impress me and it did not. On the back of the product it states “you may experience mild redness, a warm tingling sensation or flaking,which is normal”. I didn’t experience none of the above. Any new scar i got,the toner reduced it slightly,but any old scaring showed no improvement. My search continues.

Didn’t really help

I bought this to help even out my skin tone from acne scars. I finally got rid of most of my acne, but the scars pretty much cover my face. It moisturizes, which is why it still got 2 stars, but thats pretty much it. Didn’t help my skin tone at all.

Shari Emerald Isle, NC

Good night repair cream

I have used this moisturizer now for a few weeks. I think it’s doing something but it hasn’t lightened my sun spots as well as I was hoping it would. It tingles just a little at first but didn’t make my skin break out or anything. Your skin gets used to it after a couple of uses. I will continue to use it in hopes it’s improving my skin texture.

Betsy Lewisville, OH

Love this Night Cream

This product does what it says – evens tone and results are quickly noticeable. Wake up to smoother, softer looking skin. I also use the day time version with SPF. This is a dynamic duo!

Deann Enola, AR

Great for serious Cystic acne scars

I has really faded my cystic acne scars. I started noticing a difference after three weeks of use. Good moisturizer for sensitive skin.CON: it tingles a bit when you put it on.

Kristin Magazine, AR

Another Neutrogena winner…

Slowly but surely Neutrogena has been winning me back as a customer. I recently bought theNeutrogena Microdermabrasion Systemand saw this product next to the kit and figured why not try it. I gave this product approximately 1 week and I actually saw real results. My skin is firmer, smoother and the biggest change hardly any acne. As on other reviewer mentioned, she battled with adult acne and saw great results with this product. I did also and I have never experienced the results I have gotten from this product from and acne product. Like the other reviewer stated, I will also be purchasing theNeutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Moisturizer SPF 30as well. This product is a true winner for me I am completely satisfied.Update 3/20/13:I absolutely am in love with this product. I wasn’t sure the love affair would last but it has. When I wake up in the morning my face looks amazing it’s feels very smooth and soft. For me there has been a very visible difference. Most products take time to work so my advice is stay faithful to a skin care routine and be patient you will see changes. I have not purchased theNeutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Moisturizer SPF 30since I am still usingNeutrogena Visibly Even Daily Moisturizer, SPF 30which is a product that I feel works very well on my reducing the appearance of dark spots from my acne breakouts. Overall I am very pleased with theNeutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Moisturizer Night.

Works well

This works as expected, not too oily and has a neutral smell. It is something that I would keep buying– cheaper than in the stores here.

Use it every night

I really like this moisturizer. I use it every night and sometimes during the day, since I seem to be sensitive to the daytime with sunscreen moisturizer. It is a nice weight and goes on smoothly, absorbing quickly. Never a sticky or gummy feeling after application. I will continue to use this product.

Magdalena Airville, PA

Did nothing for me.

Did nothing for me, smells like perm chemicals.Purchased due to rave reviews here to even my increasingly blotchy looking face. Pinker spots, darker spots, etc. Have literally seen NO change at all. Not a bit. I understand some things just don’t work on everyone so I guess that’s what happened here. I have fair skin and dark hair, btw. Skin’s never been all that smooth or pretty, .but turning 30 gave me a new face. Oh well. Oh, and as a moisturizer it’s just ok. Burns my eyes so i went right back to my old Olay 7 stand-by, which doesn’t burn my eyes, moisturizes better, smells nice (or not at all), and at least doesn’t claim to correct my tone. lol

choice of love

It’s great – and I use it also in the day, it’s really soothing to my skin and a great feel. I like neutrogena products.

Tamara Ririe, ID

Great product!!

It does exactly what it says it does!! I love it!! I’m buying the second bottle of both the day and night versions. My skin is clearer and smoother and looks overall much better. Just hope they don’t discontinue it!

Tamika Arena, WI

Great moisturizer

I’ve been using the product for about a week and my face seems to have a better complexion and tone. Great for a night moisturizer, kind of greasy looking for day-time use. However, does not make me break out. Will continue to use.

Alfreda Ebro, FL

like it

i like all neutrogena products. i thoug this will make a diference in my skin but after only 5 uses i got a reaction, my skin was irritated and red

Barbara Treloar, MO

Too perfumy

I am sensitive to fragrances, not overly, but this gave me a headache. I have seen no improvement in my Melasma due to pregnancy hormones altering the color of my skin on my cheekbones creating brown spots. It made my skin dry and flaky, which is a warning that it’s working, but I don’t notice any difference. I will continue to use, with advil, until empty and will report my results if anything changes.

Same effectiveness as cheaper Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Night Cream

I have used this and its sister product, the Rapid Wrinkle Repair night cream. Both seem similarly effective and reducing skin imperfections, lines and spots. Thus I would not pay the extra for this product’s "added Vitamin C". Don’t feel it does anything more or less than the other product.

Even Tone

My skin is aging, I have some brown spots and lines. I don’t expect miracles, but do want improvement in my skin.This Rapid Tone Night Moisturizer has an accelerated Retinol SA which is a unique combination of Retinol SA, Glucose Complex and Hyaluronic Acid brought together, along with Vitamin C. This is a very unusual formula and to find retinol SA and Hyaluronic acid together with vitamin C is unheard of. These formulas work to help provide increased clarity and brighter skin.The info from Neutrogena tells us we’d will see results in one week. I didn’t see much difference for at least a month. I did find this product did help to nourish and hydrate my skin. This is a light moisturizer, and if you have dry skin it may not be enough for you. The scent is clean and light. Heavily scented moisturizers really offend my senses, and this scent is just right.With the retinol and hyaluronic acid you might expect red and irritated skin. It may flake and that might be expected for the first couple of days to a week. It you continue to notice irritation,stop using it, it may be the combination of both ingredients that affect you. Try another brand and use judiciously. I have used retinol SA and hyaluronic acid products, so this product is perfect for me. With consistent use, I noticed improved smoother overall tone, diminished redness, and diminished look of fine lines. There is a more even tone and some fading of brown spots. The consistency of the night moisturizer is a little light for me, but it does seem to be effective. It may be the heavier night creams I have been using are not as effective.I would recommend using this product for at least a month before making any judgements about the effectiveness. This is very affordable for the amount and quality of ingredients, you can’t go wrong.Recommended. prisrob 03-13-14
