Saving Face: My RoC® RETINOL RESOLUTION Starts NOW! #RoCRetinolResolution #IC #AD #Sweepstakes

This post was sponsored by RoC® Skincare as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.


I have a little secret: I’m almost forty! Ok it’s not a huge secret but it’s at the forefront of my mind these days! It’s a big one! That’s why they call it “the big four o!” When you are about to enter a new decade of life; lots of things go through your mind. My health and well being are definitely things I’ve been thinking a lot about. I haven’t exactly been taking the best care of myself lately and that’s something I’m going to change.

I think when you are approaching a big birthday, you kind of come up with your own version of “New Years Resolutions” except they are like Birthday Resolutions! One thing I am really bad about that I’m not going to get away with much longer is skincare. Ever since I had my first baby seven years ago, I stopped paying attention to ME! I would fall into bed exhausted at the end of the day without taking care of my face. After seven years of neglect, it’s starting to show. That is why My RoC® RETINOL RESOLUTION Starts NOW!

I knew that sunblock was an important part of skincare and anti aging but I didn’t know a whole lot about Retinol until now. Board Certified New York Dermatologist Dr. Debra Jaliman states the following:

“To age gracefully, two of the most important ingredients to include in your skincare routine are SPF and the less obvious, retinol. Retinol is a champion when it comes to smoothing fine lines and deep wrinkles. I suggest introducing an over the counter retinol into your regimen as early as your mid-20s!”

Well I definitely didn’t start using it in my mid-20’s, or even 30’s but it’s never too late to start a skincare routine. Since Retinol is known to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, hopefully it can reverse some of the signs of the damage I’ve done. I’m starting to use the Deep Wrinkle Night Cream tonight available at Walmart. The skin repairs itself at night so I’m excited to see what this stuff can do! I’m taking before pictures so that I can visually see a difference.

I KNOW my skin is collagen depleted since I’m lucky if I wash it before bed, let alone moisturize. My neglect has taken it’s toll and while I’m going to get fine lines and wrinkles because of my age; they are definitely worse because of my lack of care for them.

Over the next four weeks I’m going to be faithful in my use of the Retinol to see what it can do for me. After doing some research and learning about it, I’m excited!

The Deep Wrinkle Night Cream comes in a special aluminum tube to protect the Retinol from degrading from exposure to light and air. Any product you find not packaged this way is not going to give you the same effects. Most don’t do this. In fact, here is their product claim:

RoC® RETINOL is up to 2x stronger than imitators based on vitro RETINOL activity in RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Deep Wrinkle Night Cream.

TheRoC® RETINOL RESOLUTION is a way for all women to focus on their skin NOW. Why wait and make a New Years Resolution, or Birthday Resolution, when the holiday season is coming up! We all want to look our best for those holiday parties. I’m not going to wait until the New Year or even my birthday to look better. My goal is to improve my skin BEFORE I turn the big four o!


By joining this challenge you can be entered into a sweepstakes to win lots of fun prizes including a grand prize of $5000! I can’t wait to see what the Retinol will do for me over the next four weeks and I’ll share my results in a month!
