I am finally at a point in my life where I cannot escape the necessity for eye cream. In the past, I rationalized that whatever facial serum I used would also be active in my orbital area (I acknowledge the somewhat faulty logic there) but now I’ve acquiesced to the fact that I need something targeted for the skin around my eyes.
The RoC Correxion Sensitive Eye Cream caters to one who may have qualms about the potential side effects of retinol (e.g., dryness, redness, peeling etc.). Dabbed carefully around my eye area every couple of nights, the retinol concentration is potent enough to smooth fine lines but gentle enough to do so without the expected irritation associated with a traditional retinol product!
The Daily Resurfacing Disks were also a pleasant discovery! This exfoliation-oriented product features two-sided texturized pads that are self-foaming to cleanse the skin, while delivering a refining effect that truly makes my skin glow. They remind me a bit of both the Somme Institute Transport Pads and Peter Thomas Roth Un-wrinkle pads in terms of purpose and experience but the size and scope of these disks are significantly better because they simultaneously remove makeup and smooth the skin.

According to clinical tests:
- In one week, the appearance of fine lines is reduced and skin tone and texture is improved
- After four weeks, signs of photo-aging appear diminished
- After 12 weeks, the appearance of wrinkles and pores is diminished

All in all, these two products have been a very positive inclusion in my daily routine, giving me smoother, more radiant skin that glows without traditional retinol irritation!

Sunscreen, shade, retinols and hydration…these are habits I can (and do!) embrace…it’s encouraging to know that pursuing an anti-aging lifestyle doesn’t have to be impossible!
