The INSIDER Summary:
• The best drugstore anti-ageing product is RoC’s Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum.
• A dermatologist recommended it, and the reviews are off the charts.
• It only costs $20 to $25.
And while most of the touted anti-ageing products can cost upwards of $100 — La Mer, one of the most lauded anti-ageing creams in the world, costs $170 for a single ounce — the team at INSIDER wondered if there was a dermatologist-approved anti-ageing product people could get at the drugstore.
“A serum is a concentrated oil or water product that is used to apply active ingredients to the skin’s surface and it’s typically used for anti-ageing purposes,” Kleinerman explained. “Serums often contain botanicals and anti-oxidants and peptides, and ingredients that are meant to help and repair the skin from everyday damage, pollutants, and things like that.”
It’s the high-quality of RoC’s ingredients, including the anti-ageing ingredients retinol, that made Kleinerman recommend it. And reviewers seem to agree: It has 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon, 4.5 stars on Target, 4.5 stars at CVS, 4.5 stars on RoC’s own website.
It also helps that it’s only $20-$25.
According to RoC, you can use it once or twice a day either at night or in the morning (or both). But because it’s not a moisturizer, Kleinerman recommends using it with a light lotion or cream afterwards.
“If you want to retain the moisture in your skin, which is also good for anti-ageing purposes, you want to put a moisturizer on top,” she said.
