RoC® Skin Care


RoC® offers a slew of skincare formulas. It also offers a line of anti-wrinkle applications based on Retinol. However, these products seem to be getting consistently low scores from consumers who rate and rank anti-aging products on consumer-driven websites. It seems that overt focus on Retinol may have played a role in such lackluster performance. Furthermore, consumers may also find a manufacturer that promotes multiple anti-wrinkle products to be a bit untrustworthy.

Beenigma - Premium All-In-One Bee Venom Face Cream
We are so pleased to bring this formula to you and have found that Beenigma is the premium choice among Bee Venom face creams in the entire world. New Zealand, where the premium Beenigma face cream is manufactured - is located in the South Pacific at the bottom of the world. There are very few places on earth offering such unspoiled wilderness and purity in flora and fauna. It is this purity and beauty that inspires the very core of the Beenigma cream. The Beenigma story is a new story with old origins. It began in Auckland, New Zealand where the Beenigma team undertook research into Apitherapy and specifically the use of Bee Venom as a means to fight the signs of aging. It has been discovered that topically applied Bee Venom directly nurtures cell regeneration, assists in collagen formation and even helps in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. The more the Beenigma team learned, the more they were amazed by Bee Venom and its incredible rejuvenating effects. Read a Full review of Beenigma here.

42 Responses to “RoCSkinCare”

Cadence: I am using Roc’s Retinol night cream and could be happier with it. I first bought when I was on a buisness trip in Paris about 3 years ago and I am so happy we can now buy it here even at the drug store. I just like the way it makes my skin feel, very smooth. I don’t have much wrinkles yet I am only 32 but I hope it will prevent them from coming to soon. I also believe that alcohol makes woman age tremendously so I don’t drink any more and I don’t smoke either.

Janette: The Age Diminishing Moisturizing Night Creme by Roc seemed like it would help with the thin, papery skin around my eyes, but this didn’t do a thing after 2 mos. of use. the only thing it did was irritate my eyes and (sorry to be gross) cause more discharge and goo in my eyes in the morning. not recommended.

Olivia: The deep wrinkle serum from Roc is just ridiculous in my opinion. No result after 4, 8 or 12 weeks!!! They need to stop lying to us or I need to start reading reviews, getting tired of spending money on creams.

Shalene: Thanks so much for this blog, everyone. I have read often and comment when I can. Trouble is I don’t have a lot of extra cash to try a lot of products so I have to get the best. I am here to find out more about Roc. It’s one of those brands you see advertised a lot and I just need to know the truth from real women. Only then can I make a decision. thanks!

Rita: Here’s what I’m sad about. RoC says you should start using their Retinol cream when you’re in your late 20’s, early 30’s. Well, who knew that? I’m in my early 50’s and think that is not going to work for me because I haven’t been using it for the last 20 years! This seems to be a bad ad pitch to me. Not going to bother…I’m too old!

leah: The Roc Hydra + 3 in 1 Cleaning care caused me to get pimples and dry flaky patches on my face. Not a good look, and it felt icky too.

Claudia: The Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizing Treatment with SPF is not bad at all, I kind of like it. Not sure it is doing anything for my wrinkles buy it just feel great to put on and the smell is very french (french creams that is). Too bad the tube is so tiny.

marianne: The A+C+E Triple Action Eye Contour (roc Skincare) didn’t seem to provide ANY action! i had really high hopes for this one esp. in terms of my dark circles, and it did NOTHING.

Sibyl: What is Soy supposed to do for your skin? I get it if you’re a vegetarian or something, but it wasn’t like I was going to spread meat on my face or something, so what’s so special about it? This is not clear to me, at all.

Gerta: I should have read the reviews here first. Now that I have I totally get what you are saying about Roc, Janette and Olivia. Roc hasn’t improved my complexion one bit. Thanks for the good work.

leslie: The Retinol Cleansing Lotion from Roc was just about the worst cleanser ever. left a sticky residue that was almost impossible to rinse off…made my face feel grimy throughout the day. and clogged my pores resultiing in disgusting white heads. no thank you..not sure i trust Roc anymore.

Iris: I agree that the The Deep Wrinkle Eye Cream is really not doing much for lines around my eyes. Nice texture and absorbs really well but if it does not work on my wrinkles what the point?

Reyna: Oh, i didn’t know you were supposed to start using Roc in your 20s. yikes. No wonder its not working for me (in my 40s). Whatever happened to wrinkle creams for people with wrinkles?

Rebecca: I liked Roc okay when they had a few creams for moisture, SPF and anti-wrinkle creams. Now, it’s becoming out of control with their LIft line, I have to admit I was curious so I tried the Fortify Lift and Define Night Cream and they didn’t do anything at all!

Libby: ok, despite what everyone says about ROC I am still interesting int he anti-wrinkle illuminateur foundation. I just like the idea of a little coverage that is actually helping my skin. Maybe I am crazy for not heeding the advice but I am prob getting it anyway.

nancy: The Calmence Soothing Cleansing Fluid by Roc gets points for not irritating my skin, BUT the smell of it was unbearable and it left a residue on my skin. I did’t like this one overall.

Becky: I am surprised to read so many negatives posts for Roc, it really looked like a serious company. well, now I know.

debbie: In my opinion, if yr gonna go with a drugstore brand, Olay is better. But i’m sure everyone has different experiences.

Eleanor: the Renewex peel is bad news. Made my face look red and scaly. It was ouch. Just say No to ROC

Georgette: I agree RoC is just like Neutrogena or Olay or L’Oreal, which means it’s totally a Drug Store product, and at 62, I need some serious help! The Deep Wrinkle Night Cream did nothing to help my lines, and that’s supposed to be one of their best products. I can see I have to get serious about this.

beth_rhodes: has anyone tried the Melbiose Active Firming Treatment by RoC? THANKS!!

Nana: you guys are too funny! That’s great that you are keeping a sense of humor. I lost mine regarding creams a while ago. I can’t afford the La Mer, La Prairie kind of creams so I keep trying creams like the one Roc sells and of course am not having any luck in reducing my lines. Now if you guys can recommend something under $100 or direct me to a review I’ll appreciate it. Thanks.

Becky: I have been using Roc deep wrinkle serum for about 4 months.My wrinkles are still there strong as ever.I would like my money back.

karen: I have been using ROC deep wrinkle night and eye creams for several years . These are the best on the market, I am always getting compliments on my skin. I am 51 years old and will recomend these products

Li: I started using deep wrinkle night and eye creams 4 days ago. So far, I see that the retinol does effectively dry out dead surface skin cells, making the skin look worse at first and then better when it peels off, leaving the shiny and rosier appearance of the cells that are newly exposed. This is the effect I hoped for (from the deep wrinkle cream). I think it might be effective to use it for a few days at a time and alternate with some cream that provides more moisture and protection. Ideas anyone? Also, the eye cream seems to amplify wrinkles around the eyes, especially under the eyes. Initial application of the cream gives a moisturizing and tightening effect but soon drying out which appears as wrinkling. Yikes! Another application replenishes moistures, smoothes wrinkling but cycles again into dry wrinkles. A vicious cycle I hoped I wouldn’t have to deal with. Again, more moisture seems a probable solution. But,with what, I am wondering. Any similar experiences and/or solutions to this problem?

cathryn: Hi Li, i had some of the same dilemmas as you with Roc dep wrinkle night & Eye creams….i never really satisfactorily resolved this issue. The drying and burning was just terrible for my sensitive skin. And even though the skin underneath looked pinker and more vulnerable, the WRINKLES were still there on MY face…did you wrinkles really go away? I mean the look of “new skin” is nice, but i wanted to eliminate the wrinkels too, and this just didn’t achieve that. I tried going back and forth between Roc and Bellaplex, which is a super soft anti-aging creme, but when I woujld go back to the Roc it would just burn my skin again and yes, almost empahsize the wrinkles! It was like traumatizing my skin and then pamering it then traumatiizing it again. So eventually i just quit the Roc, and stuck with the Bellaplex. And to my shock, the Bellaplex helped about a zillion times better than the Roc did. Rather than ripping my skin off, it plumped up the wrinkles with collagen. I’m addicted to that stuff now, for what its worth. Its my HG for sure. GOod LUCK!

Kathy: My older Dermatologist suggested the RoC Deep Wrinkle Cream…with follow-up. The first morning after useing it, it did look like my inder-eye wrinkles were less noticeable. Before, I used Chanel Precision Ultra correction Eye, which bothered my eyes a bit…but works well at plumping up the skin a bit (to help disguise the wrinkles) when I just use it in the morning around my eyes. This Dr. teaches at the University here, and I asked him what I could do about the wrinkles appearing around my eyes (I am 54).

Layne: I tried Roc’s Lifting Serum. Didn’t work. Now I don’t trust ANY of their products. Who has money to throw away?

princesspammy: All of the ROC products work very well for me – some may find them irritating – however I will put up with the tingling for firm skin and fewer lines and wrinkles

melissa: I purchased the roc deep wrinkle serum and used for two days the second day it left burns on my face when i started to feel the burning i tryed to wash it off and it just kept burning my face so now i dont no if the burn marks will go away or if i need to go to the dr.bad mistake to try this serum it almost makes me scared to purchase or try anything new if any body knows anything good to try please let me no

Aubrey: I am 31, and have been trying a few RoC products on and off for a few years now. I first started using it in college, and really liked it. After an 8-year hiatus, I bought the eye cream in 2008, but noticed it would leave my eyes feeling burn*d and very sensitive after a few days’ use. Did the formula change, or my reaction to it?… I phased it out and tried the following again in 2009 and 2010: Corrective Action Eye Cream the same from 2008), RoC Deep Wrinkle Night Cream (and recently the Deep Wrinkle with SPF30 for AM) and Deep Wrinkle Eye Cream. After a few days, the pleasant moisturizing turns into tingling, which then turns into burn*ng and then dry bu*nt patches on my face and neck (esp. around my mouth). I thought to try to double up moisturizers (1 Roc, 1 not) to mellow the effects, which seemed to work. When I stopped that and went 100% RoC, the burn*ng would begin again. I don’t know if it’s actually good for my skin, for the pa*n and suffer*ng it causes! I wondered if I was the only one going through this cycle, and it seems I’m not. That doesn’t make me feel any better about it, knowing that other people have the same problems with their formulas. But if I have to ‘cut’ them with another cream, I’d rather just find something else that works by itself, rather than buy 2 creams to cancel the damag* of 1.

Michelle: Why has the SPF 15 been removed from the Retinox day cream , this is , and I stress a really important component of your product , especially with the South African Sun …Please , please advise

Julie: I’m 45 and never tried an anti-wrinkle cream before…my skin looks pretty good for my age, except around my eyes. I purchased RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum even though I don’t have deep wrinkes just fine lines. First I used it nightly for about 2 wks and didn’t see any results. Then about a month later tried it once at night by itself and once during the day with Cetaphil SPF 15 moisturizer over it. Every day the skin under my eyes got drier and drier until after a week, I woke up this morning and my under eye skin was more wrinkled. Since it b*rns a bit under my eyes I’m concerned that it’s doing some da*age, so I’m stopping use. I mean, it h*rts and I looked so much worse when I woke up this morning…I’ve been gently washing with Cetaphil cleanser and moisturizing with their moisturizer because they were recommended by my dermatologist as being gentle to reverse this facial injury. I just hope I haven’t done any permanent dam*age. Oh well, guess I should be happy with what was given to me naturally. Learned my lesson!

Ann: Very disappointed in the Roc Deep Wrinkle serum. Guess I should have did more in-depth research 1st. I do not have a lot of wrinkles yet, thought it would combat them along the way. Only to now see after over a week, red*ess, puff*ness and drying on my face….discontinuing the product and will not be purchasing any of the lines they offer.

KellyAnne: Wonderfully insightful comments ladies. I have just started (4 weeks) with the daily resurfacing disks cleanser and the deep wrinkle filler. I am thrilled with the results. I have very sensitive skin, so much so that I had to return the line of products I purchased from Olay. Red*ess after washing is nothing new to me and the disk cleansers are phenomenal with a delicate, pleasing scent.The Correxion deep filler is just as affordable and I truly believe is re-structuring my skin. I am so impressed I am looking into their other products without hesitation and look forward to using more of their regime. I used to use Rare Minerals by Bare Essentuals but that is too expensive Love to hear back KellyAnne

KELLEY: I’ve just purchased RoC’s Retinol Correxion Sensitive Night Cream today. I haven’t used it yet, quite leery after reading RoC product reviews. If any of you use this particular product, could you please let me know how you like it? thankyou :)

rachaele: i just bought some and i was hoping for better reviews, im 49 and have “laugh lines” but deep creases between my eyebrows i was hoping it will at least make them not look so deep in a few weeks. i marked my first day on the calendar and am using it twice a day right now. i’ll let you know my results in a few weeks

Rothie: I tried the Roc under eye cream. It burned my eyes and made them water. Cont. to use for 3 months did nothing to the fine lines. Won’t buy Roc product again. Tired of wasting money..

vickie: i have been using roc wrinkle creams for a couple of days now,after the second day my face began to tingle then burn so i thouht it was part of the process to work but to my surprise the next day my face was r*ed,bl*tchy and it h*rt,is this suppose to happen? not going to use anymore. waste of my money boo hoo

Laney: spent 80 dollars on several roc products and end up with p*inful b*rned, bl*tchy, flak*y skin, especialy the whole eye area! thank god i could return it all! worst skin acre product i have ever used! ladies run far, far away from roc if you value your skin!

cj: i have been using Roc for many years -from age of 25- and ladies i can tell you one thing being a massive party girl and a heavy smoker for many many years over 35 now!!! i have hardly any wrinkles or lines and look around 29/30! we may give it to the gene or to roc pick and chose. but my advice ladies wait until you are 35 or over to use cream when the damage shows maybe you waited too long and should not expect miracles but i am a big fan of roc!!

Nance: The first few days, maybe 3 max, this felt great on my skin, however then the nightmare continued. I used this product for ONLY 6 days. On day 7, my skin felt as if it was on f*re. Today is day 8, the f*re has died down, but there are still “em*ers” in a few areas and I don’t have sensitive skin. I had used the “RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum.” I paid $20 bucks. EVOO would have been kinder.

RoC® Skin Care

RoC® is a French company that dubs itself as the skincare leader since 1957. It offers a line of dermatologists-designed skincare products, and it was founded by pharmacist Jean-Charles Lissarrague and a collaboration of dermatologists. However, the company seems to offer multiple products that are basically designed for the same purpose. We think it would have been better if they had come up with one, or maybe a couple of, specialized products containing only a blend of proven ingredients.

RoC® does offer specialized anti-wrinkle applications; however, these seem to be chiefly based on the alleged benefits of Retinol. We note that RoC® is not the only company that peddles Retinol-based skin creams. In this review, we shall take a closer look at what RoC® has to offer. We will determine whether its offerings may be worth consumers’ trust, investment and time, or if they may be nothing more than run-of-the-mill products that produce lackluster results.

 Products at a Glance
The official website for RoC® categorizes its products into 3 sections: Anti-Wrinkle, Lift and Define and Multi Benefit. All of its anti-wrinkle products are based on Retinol. There are about 7 products made just for tackling wrinkles and other signs of aging, not to mention numerous other products under the other 2 categories. It seems as if one single task has been assigned per product. For example, there is a night cream, a day cream, a moisturizer with SPF, an eye cream and a cream for the hands.

 Products in Focus
Retinol is actually an animal form of Vitamin A, and it has been found crucial in vision and bone growth. Liver and eggs as well as carrots and spinach are said to be a good source of pro-Vitamin A Carotenoids. The body then utilizes these precursor forms to get ample amounts of Retinol. Therefore, eating the above-mentioned foods may be a good way to get Vitamin A. While Retinol is an important ingredient, we believe it is not sufficient by itself when it comes to reducing the visible signs of aging.

There has been proven and remarkable development in the high-tech beauty industry when it comes to finding ingredients that boost the body’s production of Collagen, an important protein that helps in skin renewal. For example, Matrixyl 3000®, which is a patented form of Palmitoyl Pentapeptide, has been proven and time-tested to reduce wrinkles formation in the short term, as well as long term. Unfortunately, even with the large number of products offered, such ingredients seem to be missing from RoC®’s Anti-Aging product line at this time.

The official website for RoC® has a nice appeal, but rather than being an exclusive product website with customer testimonials and before and after pictures, it is more directed towards promoting the company as a whole. The fact that the official website for RoC® markets numerous products may confuse a user, as it did us. However, the navigation is not as difficult as it may be for some other manufacturers we have come across.

• Product line contains moisturizers and a few specialized creams
• List of ingredients disclosed

• Products do not contain proven ingredients like Matrixyl 3000®
• Company promotes multiple products that basically tackle the same problem
• Specific testimonials unavailable at this time
• Free trial offers not available at this time

 Final Thoughts
In the end, we could not overlook the fact that this company promotes so many different products that are all designed to perform one single task. The differences among several products seemed to be that they were supposed to work on different parts of the body. However, we believe that the best manufacturer actually promotes only a limited line of products. We also believe that it is not difficult to come up with a cream that covers all those tasks and still comes in one single tube or jar. Instead of paying for five different creams for five different parts of our body, it may be more practical, not to mention cost-effective and efficient to buy one product. We believe that such a cream may be much more appealing to consumers, especially if it contains proven ingredients.
