Everybody’s looking for the fountain of youth and many are willing to drop big bucks on it. I get that some people aren’t into the whole DIY at-home-remedy thing so it only seems fitting to take a peek at some of the top products on the market and give you my bullshit-free review.
Olay is a world-renowned brand when it comes to skincare. Over the years they have invested serious time in building a series of anti-aging products and Olay Regenerist Serum is one of them.
How Does it Work?
The Olay Regenerist Serum uses their most advanced amino-peptide complex. Olay’s amino-peptide formula is designed to treat your skin from 10 layers deep by delivering its moisturizing ingredients.
There are several key ingredients found in this serum that help reduce skin inflammation, lock in moisture and diminish the effects of free radicals and environmental pollutants.
Some of these anti-aging wonders are allantoin, green tea leaf extract, pro-vitamin b5 and of course, their amino-peptide.
By making Olay Regenerist Serum part of your daily skincare sesh, you will improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, have visibly firmer skin and a brighter, more even skin tone.
The amino-peptide complex alone is great. Its formula works deep within the skin’s surface to regenerate tissue and reduce inflammation that can cause you to look older. It also moisturizes and fills in your fine lines which contributes to the reduced appearance of premature aging.
To use this product, just follow these 3 simple steps:
Step 1: Cleanse your face and pat dry with a clean face towel.
Step 2: Using a dime-size amount, apply the serum once or twice daily evenly onto your face and neck. Why your neck? Because as we age we get little turkey gobbles…not a good look!
Step 3: Can be used under your regular moisturizer and makeup so feel free to carry on with your glam routine as per usual.
Is it Worth All the Hype?
Let’s start by making a checklist of what you look for in a good anti-aging product.
First of all, you want a decent price point that won’t break your bank. You want a product that is compatible with your skin type, but most importantly you want something that delivers results; and fast!
I must admit, I was surprised to find this serum for so cheap – checking in at $22.99 this is a great price point for such a good product!
It’s especially great because the peptide complex responsible for giving such rave results is also found in several other products; much more expensive products. Suckers!
To be clear, serums are not the same as moisturizers. They are made of much smaller molecules that are meant to penetrate deeper in the skin. It’s for this reason that the Regenerist Serum is acceptable for all skin types.
That being said, I found using the serum alone did not make my skin feel moisturized enough. My advice to those who get the same result, use a daily moisturizer that is made for your skin type after you apply the serum. There’s nothing worse than dry feeling skin.
So far, so good and there’s only one more aspect to tackle; does it provide fast results?
Let me start by saying, as a skincare/beauty blogging babe (that’s right, I think I’m a babe!) I have tried A LOT of anti-aging products. There are many that I thought worked great but in all honesty, I’m a fan of Olay products.
The company says in 4 weeks you will notice reduced visibility of wrinkles and I would say this is pretty accurate. My skin felt instantly smoother and I could have sworn that the skin below my eyes was brighter and more radiant almost right away.
Some of you may not think that 4 weeks qualifies as “fast,” but after years of working on those well-deserve wrinkles and lines I’d say 4 weeks is more than acceptable.
Would I recommend this product? Hell yeah I would!
On A Budget? Amazon Has The Cheapest Price On Olay Regenerist
Steer clear of all the major retail stores because they are EXCELLENT at ripping you off. Instead of paying $22.99, you can order it on Amazon for $17.88.
And yes you can thank me later 😉
