Our tester used this product for 4 full weeks. She's in her mid-30's and has semi-sensitive, normal skin. She's also a runner, who spends a lot of time outdoors. RoC uses new technology call E-PULSE in this product line. Read on to see if RoC's big promises of skin rejuvenation really occurred.

Results RoC Promises

RoC Skin Care promises big results with their new Brilliance line. They have three kits, one for day, one for night and one specifically for eyes. Today we're looking at their day kit.

Here is what they report their sample testers saw: "...skin is instantly softer, smoother and more even-looking. After 1 week skin looked more radiant and felt firmer and more defined. After 4 weeks, eye and cheek wrinkles were visibly reduced resulting in an overall more defined and lifted look."

What's Included in RoC: Brilliance Day Rejuvenating Moisturizer

This is a 2-step kit that includes a serum and a moisturizer. You apply the activating serum to your freshly cleaned skin, and follow with the moisturizer. The moisturizer contains SPF 20, which is a definite must-have for daytime moisturizers.

The box says that after one week skin would:

  • feel softer and smoother
  • skin would look more radiant
  • Skin would feel firmer and more defined
  • Fine lines and wrinkles appear diminished

And, after four weeks skin would:

  • have dramatically more radiant skin
  • visibly reduced appearance of eye and cheek wrinkles
  • dramatically more defined and lifted appearance

RoC: Brilliance Day Rejuvenating Moisturizer Results

Our reviewer has semi-sensitive skin and used the kit for a full 4 weeks before this review.

She loved the consistency the serum -- completely weightless. It absorbed immediately into her skin. It has a medicinal smell that she didn't love, though. Her face responded well with no breakouts at all.

She really loved the moisturizer. It seemed light as well as non-greasy. She found it took a little longer to absorb, so she had to wait a little bit to put her foundation on. She also thought it had a good scent, which helped drown out the smell of the serum. Again, her face responded well with no breakouts.

After using for a week, our reviewer had pretty good results. She noticed firmer, more defined skin, and it did feel softer and smoother. She wasn't sure she saw a decrease in her fine lines, however, after such a short time.

After 4 weeks, she continued to see progression from week one, and the results improved. Her skin was more radiant, softer, firmer and more defined. The box says she'd see dramatically more defined and lifted skin after 4 weeks. She said she wasn't sure it was considered "dramatic", but she did think that it helped to lift and firm up her skin. But she didn't see the results on her eyes that she was hoping for. Perhaps using the kit specifically for eyes would help with that area.

Final Thoughts

RoC is known for their fantastic high-end products available at drugstores. This is another one of these products. Retail price is currently right around $50, and it includes both a serum and a moisturizer that contain just under 1 ounce each.

Our reviewer is quite frugal and said that she would totally recommend it, even though it's more that what she typically would spend on skin care products for herself. If this falls in your price range, we absolutely think you'll love it.
