Shoppers in their 50s and 60s adore this Neutrogena moisturizer — and it's just $17 (that's almost 45% off)

For better or worse, the number of options for tackling signs of aging is seemingly endless. Whether you're frustrated by fine lines, sagging, lack of elasticity or dark spots, there are plenty of moisturizers out there that'll minimize them — and keep new ones from forming. The first step? Investing in an excellent SPF. Second? Getting an equally wonderful retinol. Better yet: Find a product that does both — like the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Retinol Face Moisturizer with SPF 30. Currently, it's on sale for just $17 at Amazon, a near-45%-off discount.

This cream formula is designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines, crow's feet, deep wrinkles and more. Plus, hyaluronic acid helps hydrate your skin, while a potent glucose complex helps strengthen your skin's barrier.

Why is it a good deal?

Considering a good moisturizing sunscreen with retinol can cost upwards of $40, $17 is more than reasonable — especially marked down by 45% from its still-great original price of $29. Plus, having sun protection is priceless (though we'll certainly take a discount when we can!).

Why do I need this?

This Neutrogena moisturizer packs a one-two punch of both SPF 30 and retinol, so you can reap the wrinkle-fighting benefits while protecting your delicate skin from harmful sun exposure. Speaking of which: Make sure to apply generously 15 minutes before heading out under those UV rays. Need an SPF? You can also add the brand's popular sunscreen stick to your cart for just ten bucks.

Aside from protecting your skin, the formula also blends seamlessly in, without leaving a greasy film behind.

What reviewers say:

Don't be fooled by the seems-too-good-to-be-true sale price — this stuff has scored over 11,000 five-star ratings at Amazon, plenty of which came from shoppers over 50 years old.

"You will never be sorry for trying this," shared one over-the-moon mom. "I am 68, and people think my daughters are my sisters. Your face will thank you for using this."

One longtime fan shared her story: "I have been using Neutrogena products for over 45 years, evolving into skin care products for a maturing female," they wrote. "I'm definitely starting to wrinkle, but the culprit has been living in the sun on water (and I'm allergic to OTC and RX sunscreen...) [Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair] is doing the best that it can, it's silky & not 'sticky' and is both invigorating and moisturizing."

"Unbelievable," wrote one shopper. "I am 55, and this is the first cream that has ever worked. It evens out skin color and reduces fine lines. I really didn’t think any cream could do that!"

"The fragrance takes some getting used to, but it could be worse," reasoned one reviewer. "This is a great product to tighten the skin and smooth out the wrinkles."

Speed up your morning skin-care regimen with this 2-in-1 powerhouse.

P.S.: Don't forget to treat your peepers to a little skin-loving TLC as well. Neutrogena's retinol eye cream is also on sale now:

This formula contains hyaluronic acid as well as Vitamin A to help improve fine lines, lighten dark circles and fade stubborn crow's feet. 'I don't have any wrinkles around my eyes, and I feel that it's helped me to maintain a more youthful look,' raved one reviewer. 'I have extremely sensitive skin too, and haven't had any issues there. It's just as good, if not better, than the more expensive creams!'

P.P.S.: Also, did you know retinol isn't just for your face? One Yahoo Life Shopping Writer swears by this affordable (and on-sale!) Gold Bond Age Renew Retinol Overnight Body & Face Lotion, in case you want to round out your collection.

'It contains seven moisturizers, including shea and cocoa butters, to help keep skin hydrated,' our writer said. 'I'm pretty sure it's because of this that I woke up after the first application with zero redness or itching. But even better? My skin felt noticeably more moisturized and smoother just eight hours after I'd slathered it on, and stayed that way the rest of the day.'
