Sharing my #RapidResults with @neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer thanks @Allure_magazine! #SPONSORED #BBloggers

I couldn't possibly succeed at being more entertaining on this particular topic than this buzzfeed article called "22 Things That Only Happen To People Who Have Resting Bitchface" by Lara Parker and Candace Lowry, this collection of GIF's are simply hilarious, but something that anyone accussed of this shall we call it 'condition' can relate to. (For those in the know '2's' always follow me, so I find it interesting this particular article on Resting Bitch Face most caught my eye!)

As a freelance writer, blogger, social media consultant and life coach, reading my emails on a daily basis, give me this face:

See those forehead wrinkles? That's exactly what happens every time I open another email asking me to do something for free! It sounds sort of like this "You want me to craft content for you with how many words, and on a deadline and you want me to do it for free because if I won't invariably someone will' - Then I scream profanity at my email and go grab an energy drink because I know it's going to be a long day!

I actually hate being in pictures. I don't do selfies, and I try to avoid being in front of the camera as much as possible. Taking pictures goes something like this for me:

Allure Magazine asked their Beauty Enthusiasts to test out Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer


Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Accelerated Retinol SA
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Fades the look of stubborn wrinkles
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Brightens Skin Tone
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Smooth fine lines and texture


While it claims to boast visible results in just one week, I found it took closer to just under 3 weeks to show visible results for me. But then again I do test a lot of products and tend to have to ease my skin into it a bit. The first week I had to start it one day on and one day off which is the norm when I'm testing anything with Retinol. It takes my skin a bit to ease into products with Retinol. so technically the first week may not count since I didn't use it every single night. I found by the beginning of week 3 that I began to notice a fade in the most stubborn wrinkles which for me are forehead and parenthesis (or more like a semi colon than parenthesis because one side is more pronounced than the other!). It did work well on both fine lines and stubborn wrinkles but I didn't notice a marked difference in terms of brightening, I would have liked to see more especially since I am using the Pink Grapefruit Cleanser by Neutrogena during the day as a face wash since my skin is acne and oil prone/combination.

Overall at a price of $20.99 per 1 fl. oz I found it to be effective and budget friendly and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. It did deliver the promised results, just in a bit more time than one week!

  1. There are some serious wrinkles in response to your emails for free writing. Being a freelance writer is entertaining. It's good to know Neutrogena has Rapid Wrinkle Repair to keep our face looking good.

    1. @Lori Gunn - Time is money and I despise when anyone asks if they can waste either one. Bloggers have to have a value proposition when we pitch a brand, I have no qualms about expecting anyone who pitches me to have a win/win for us both in mind, and FREE work is NOT a win/win in my book.

      So far Neutrogena Products have not dis-appointed me and this one was certainly no different! :-)

      ♥ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ

  2. Too funny - I had never heard of the resting bitchface! It is nice to know the Rapid Wrinkle Repair does work. I don't mind waiting if there will be positive results. I too do not like my picture taken. In fact I hate looking at pictures of myself.

  3. I JUST heard about resting bitch face, but I totally know it's a real thing. If my girlfriend isn't actively "on", she has serious RBF.

  4. Well I agree Freelance writer does Not mean that your work should be free (everyone's time is valuable !!! )
    RBF that's the look I get when I know that I'm hearing BS Oh well that almost always LOL !!
    I've used Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer and I love the way it works on my forehead and eye wrinkles. The wrinkles around my mouth are a little smoother so it gets an A - plus from me .

  5. Haha, that was hilarious. "That's exactly what happens every time I open another email asking me to do something for free!" I'm pretty sure I made that face a few times this week! ;)

  6. I have some serious resting B face! Like serious and I should use a product like this but I can never remember to. I suck.

  7. I hadn't heard the term RBF until now pretty funny.
    This sounds like a good product.

  8. I have "free writing" wrinkles too! I could definitely use this to get rid of them.

  9. I also have this terrible condition LOL! I might have to try this out!

  10. Oh I LOVE their pink grapefruit cleanser! I also swear by their concealer!

  11. I thoroughly enjoy almost every product from Neutrogena. They make such great products! Now I want to try this Rapid Wrinkle Repair.

  12. I am usually behind the camera also. I will have to try this moisturizer.

  13. LOL on Jasmine. My husband has a furrow between his eyebrows and people always think he's frowning, lol

  14. I'll have to check out the rapid wrinkle repair. I am starting to show some serious wrinkles... probably due to the same emails you get!
