Its new to the market. They launched this new line in January. The Ageless Intensives Tone Correcting Serum Concentrate replaced the Neutrogena Visibly Even Night Concentrate. I used the Night Concentrate and it permanently scarred my face. Neutrogena took the Night Concentrate off of the shelves, gave it a new name and a new look (Ageless Intensives).
I would be very careful about using any of their products. I ran out and bought their product after seeing a commercial where Gabrielle Union stated that she could go outside without wearing makeup within two weeks of using this product. Now, I can't walk around in my house without makeup because the scarring is so bad. I've visited two dermatologists and a plastic surgeon who told me the damage was permanent.
You may have a different reaction that I did. But please be careful.
I have not had very much success with Neutrogena products - with the exception of their DryTouch sheer sunblock. Everything else either smells like it's gone bad or belongs at a nuclear plant (so that I can't even leave it on long enough because I just can't stand it - ie: the acne scar fade peel), or they make me break out. I don't have particularly sensitive skin, but I would guess that those of you who have had bad reactions have sensitive skin. What I would recommend is that you first try a bit of the product on the inside of your elbow before ever putting ANYTHING on your face. If the product becomes intolerable (ie: feels like it's burning as opposed to the 'tingling' sensation some products have - like vitamin c at 10%, it tingles but never burns), or if your skin is turning red very quickly, wash it off immediately, put some aloe vera gel on the spot - the burning sensation would be felt by people of all skin colours, but I don't know how much darker skin tones would react in a visible way to let them know something isn't right. (If anyone knows, it would be great to have a posting on that subject so that others can tell if something isn't right.) I know it probably sounds ignorant, but I'm white so I don't know. And I have used products in the past that haven't even so much as tingled, but they turned my face beet red - which is why I used the inside of my elbow, just in case. Anyway, once you've soothed the irritation, return the product from whence it came asap. If the clerks don't take it back, ask to speak to the manager. If even he or she blows you off, call the company and make a complaint - be sure that you keep your store receipt! Good luck to all!
I have been using the Neutrogena Ageless Intensives deep wrinkle eye cream as well as the day cream (with spf) for about a month now, and I have been really happy with the results. Granted, I don't have very deep wrinkles, but I do have fine lines and noticeable expression lines (specifically frown/squint lines) that are becoming less visible. Overall, my skin feels softer, looks smoother and seems more supple. Thankfully, I haven't experienced any sensitivity to either product. In fact, my satisfaction with these creams prompted me to buy the Ageless Intensives Night Lifting Cream, which I have been using for about a week. So far I love its moisturizing abilities, but I have yet to notice any "lifting". Of course, that may take a while. All in all, I think Neutrogena has a good product here, and I will continue to use it.
i used the moisturizing night cream and was actually please with the effect on my 11's. didn't try any of the serums and whew! glad i didn't! (sorry schelle). had to stop using it b/c i have recently figured out my skin has allergic reactions to a lot of ingredients in drugstore brands, now trying mother nature's way!
i tried the eye cream as well and it worked well for fine lines under the eye, but nothing for crow's feet.
Yeah. It's been over a year and a half now. I will get the surgery soon to cover the scarring. The plastic surgeon will "tatoo" over the scarring.
I've only read about one other person that had the exact reaction that I did. I wish I had seen that review before trying the product.
The strange thing is that I tested it before using it all over my face. I had no allergic reaction during the test.
I have read several success stories from others using this product. And at the same time read several that have had allergic reactions (although not as bad as mine). I just hope others will read these posts and be very careful and test fully.
