Kacie asks…How about Neutrogena rapid wrinkle repair eye cream? What ingredients are supposed to be brightening my dark circles?
The Right Brain responds:
This product claims to do the following:
Fade the look of stubborn crow’s feet
Brighten and even under eye area
Smooth fine lines & texture
Reduce the look of dark cirlces
The “magic” ingredient here is retinol. As we’ve noted before, you need to be careful not to be fooled when deciding which retinol product is right for you because there are different types of retinoids and not all of them work the same. The best retinol containing products use a time-released form which ensures there’s enough of the ingredient delivered to your skin to help increase cell turn over without being irritating. This Neutrogena product contains a “sustained release” form of retinol which claims to do just that.
