Fighting Age Spots with Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair

As a Neutrogena Ambassador, I have been lucky enough to try out several of their latest products and best selling collections.  As 40 gets closer for me, I need to focus more on taking care of my skin.  As a teen, I was lucky enough to have relatively flawless skin (a trait that I have inherited from my Mom) but after having two kids, I have noticed an uneven tone and brown spots on my face.  Neutrogena is a name I have always trusted, so I couldn’t have been more excited to try the Rapid Tone Repair Day and Night Moisturizer.

Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair

After washing my face with the Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Cleanser, I have been applying the Night Moisturizer for about two weeks now.  In the morning, I follow up with the Day Moisturizer (which has SPF 30) before applying makeup.  The Accelerated Retinol SA plus the exclusive booster accelerates skin’s surface activity to help smooth wrinkles and diminish the look of age spots. Plus, the added Vitamin C gently helps diffuse the look of brown spots and even out skin tone.  Both formulas are lightweight and do not make my skin feel greasy at all.  The bottle warns that skin may flake or become red when first starting the process, but I did not experience those effects.

After just one week, I did see a noticeable reduction in the dark spots on my face.  To be honest, I didn’t think it would happen that quickly.  Now after almost two weeks, the spot is not completely gone, but it barely noticeable even without makeup.  I have tried other night moisturizers in the past, but my skin could not handle the thickness and began to break out.  Again, I have not experienced this with the Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair.

I have nothing but great things to say about the Day and Night Moisturizers and I will definitely be purchasing more in the future.  If you want to try them out, the items can be purchased for $20.99 each or win them below!

This post is the opinion of the Experimental Mommy.  I am a Neutrogena Ambassador and received complimentary samples to facilitate this review.  All opinions remain 100% honest.
