Off to Review!
What is Olay - Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream -
Olay - Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is blended with anti-ageing ingredients that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in just 4 weeks.
Formulated with ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, which hydrates the Skin Amino-Peptides, minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, Panthenol (Vitamin B5) and Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), combined with OliveM (a derivative of olive oil).
Olay - Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is moisturizer that hydrates your skin making it visibly plump and Carob Fruit Extract which aids skin repair and regeneration.
Olay Products come in attractive packaging. The cream comes in a red color glass tub, sized 50 gms. The cream has a thick consistency and has mild fragrance.
How to Use -
As per the Recommended Regimen on the box, it suggests, Cleanse your face with an Olay Cleanser and thereafter apply Olay's Serum which would help make skin receptive to the anti-ageing ingredients. Third step is application of Olay Treatment Day & Night and the fourth step is the application of Olay - Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream.
Who Can Use -
Anybody can use - Male and Female
It is advisable to test for Sensitive Skin as though my skin is not extremely sensitive however I felt tingling sensation when I first applied. So please be cautious if you have extremely sensitive skin.
I cleansed my face with a face wash and applied directly the Olay - Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream, avoiding contact with the eyes. (Please avoid using the cream too close to eyes as it might cause irritation). I am sure if you go with Serum it would give you great results, as Serums create base and provides nutrients to the skin which helps in Cell Regeneration.
Review & Results - Nearing my 40, I had large pores and though my skin was oily and acne prone during teenage days, however with times my skin has turned a Combination-Normal to Dry. My main concern was - Fine Lines, Large Pores, Dullness and Uneven Skin Tone. As the cream promised to improve elasticity and provide firmness so I gave it a try.
Day 1: Night after, my skin felt hydrated and plump. The cream feels lightweight on the skin and quickly absorbs without any oily or greasy residue (at least it works great for my combination skin, I am not sure for the oily skin).
Week 1: I had large pores on my nose and by the end of Week 1 there were eruptions and my nose was extremely dry and flaky. In fact application of the cream gave me a tingling sensation on the nose. Please do not scrub or bleach while you experience this as it may further aggravate the skin condition.
Week 2: Eruptions continued however I noticed that size of the pores reduced and that was the reason I went ahead using the cream. Skin was gaining some elasticity as it felt plumper and hydrated.
Week 3: Ahaa! By Week 3 I could see a noticeable difference and my skin felt hydrated, pores reduced in size and fine lines were also reduced and I could see the difference. Neither the cream claims for reducing uneven skin tone, so I am not expecting much on that front however my skin does feel it has regained its elasticity. Happy Me!!
I am pretty happy with the results other than being priced on the higher side. Now as winter sets in, so if you have extremely dry skin you might have to use another cream during day time or while you are off to work. Since, mine is combination it is working pretty fine as of now. Of course the cream does not have SPF and since during day time when I am out for work I prefer applying Sunscreen so I am using this before going to bed. Now if you are looking for reduction of Uneven Skintone, I would say it won't work alone with a cream or any cream for that matter, add nutritious diet - green vegetables etc and most of all eat healthy and clean.
My Recommendations - Olay Cleanser, Olay Serum & Olay - Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream.
Price: INR 1700 (50 gms), Price being on the higher side makes it less affordable!
Would You Buy It Again - Yes! (In fact we have purchased the second jar)
Where To Buy It - Amazon (You may find great discounts!!)
@ThePopUpFeed, we would never false review any product, and this is not a Sponsored Review. I will update the post further as I complete 8 weeks of application.
