Beauty Review: Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream
No one can escape the power of time and gravity. One day, we’ll all lose the wrinkle battle and suffer the physical effects of aging – saggy skin, crow’s feet, deep lines, etc. C’est la vie…
Well, not quite yet!
Say hello to age reverser – Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream!
Click to find out more about this hydrating, anti-aging cream that swears to firm and sculpt skin for a younger look!
According to a recent Facebook poll conducted by Olay, a whopping 63 million women in the United States send their products to the skincare graveyard – a place in their home where they keep the products they don’t use regularly – because they aren’t seeing results fast enough.
To prevent their products from suffering the infamous ‘graveyard fate’, Olay began to conduct excessive research on the skin’s feedback towards anti-aging products.
With this, they came up with the Skin Fatigue Theory – aged skin is less responsive to anti-aging ingredients than younger skin because of decreases in skin cell energy. Hence, Olay scientists determined that an effective approach to fighting the look of skin fatigue is to boost aged cells’ ability to produce energy and its ability to respond to stress.
Armed with these insights, Olay has reformulated its signature Aminopeptide Complex with the revolutionary Skin Energizing Technology to help boost skin’s responsiveness to anti-aging ingredients.
Based on studies conducted with hundreds of women across the world, Olay Regenerist Skin Energizing Technology has been proven to improve skin’s responsiveness and fight the look of skin fatigue by accelerating surface layer cell turnover, increasing brightness and decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
As the star of the Olay Regenerist boutique, the new Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream has been proven to regenerate skin up to two times faster by boosting natural skin renewal in just five days, and reduce appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in just one jar.
You should be able to see rapid results within a week. The following is provided by Olay:
10 minutes: Noticeable improvement to appearance of aging concerns like eye lines and brightness and boosting hydration 4 days: Intense hydration firms skin 5 days: Regenerates surface skin up to two times faster by boosting natural surface skin renewal 7 days: Visible reduction in wrinkle appearance
Here’s what I thought about the product…
I was 14 when I first discovered the magic of beauty products and guess what? The first beauty product I ever laid my hands on was my grandma’s Olay whitening cream! So there was definitely an air of nostalgia when I unboxed my Olay Regenerist cream. Haha!
The consistency of the cream is thick and smooth. Here’s a photo of the texture.
The fragrance and slightly greasy texture made me worry about its effects on my sensitive skin. So each time, I’ll apply only a small dollop of the cream on my face and neck to prevent breakouts or any adverse skin reactions.
But I gotta say, the fragrance is rather alluring and refreshing. It made my skin smell like flowers! ✿
The cream broke me out in the first couple of days but the pimples subsided once the skin got used to the richness of the product. Even though I do not have crow’s feet and wrinkles on my face at the moment, I do have unflattering neck lines. So I’m hoping with prolonged use, it will mitigate the wrinkly neck problem.
To be honest, if you’re looking for a miracle cream like the pink bees honey anti-aging cream that Adam invented in the movie Upside Down, you’ll be pretty disappointed. Even though it’s named micro sculpting cream, I don’t think it actually sculpts or lifts the contours of the face. To achieve such drastic results, you probably have to consult a plastic surgeon instead.
All in all, I think the cream functions adequately as an emollient and hydrator. I’ll certainly lug this along on winter vacations. 3.5 Honeyz crowns!
Olay’s Regenerist Advanced Anti-Ageing Micro-Sculpting Cream (50g) is available in most leading departmental stores and pharmacies at SGD49.99.
