RoC pretty much dominates the retinol category at the drugstore level—retinol being the weaker, over-the-counter version of tretinoin (Retin-A). Every derm I speak to still considers retinoids to be the gold standard in anti-aging, so if you can’t tolerate prescription versions, RoC’s new line, Retin-Ox Wrinkle Correction, could be a good option.
Besides the retinol—which as you may know, accelerates skin cell turnover and stimulates collagen and elastin production—it contains two other anti-aging powerhouse ingredients: hyaluronic acid, which holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water and helps plump skin from within, and peptides (the newest darlings of the anti-aging world), which stimulate collagen production and repair.
Quite a big anti-aging punch here for a drugstore line. It’s available in a day cream, night cream, serum and eye cream.
Priced from $36-50 and available now at drugstores across Canada.
