Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream

There's no need to act your age thanks to Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream

There’s really no need to act your age!

When it comes to anti-aging, I believe that prevention is better than cure. So I started anti-aging products the day I turned 25 (and that was 10 years ago!).
I’ve invested in the best and unfortunately, extremely expensive products. Thank you SK-II and La Mer for burning a HUGE hole in my pocket.

So when I was nearing the end of my fancy jar of cream, I thought maybe, just maybe, I should give Olay Regenerist a shot. I wanted to see if it is really that good at 1/10th the price. After all, it does have a cult following.

So I got myself a jar. To see if I had been wasting money on expensive luxury creams when I could get the same results from this red pot.

I was really psyched to try it. I took a pea-sized amount of the cream, warmed it between my hands and patted it on my skin. I thought it may be a bit too thick for my oily skin, but it sank in beautifully. And though it may be a wee bit greasy, I personally like that feeling on my skin at night.

The morning after, my skin had looked healthy and happy. Smooth and plump. No breakouts. Nothing bad. It was a good start.

But I have to admit, over time, I started missing my expensive creams. Maybe it is the texture of luxury products, or the smell – whatever it was, I missed them. So I went back. And Olay Regenerist found itself lying at the back of my drawer.

Until, a weekend trip to Phuket. I was packing my bag and didn’t want to carry my expensive cream as I was afraid it would break in my bag. So I just dumped the Olay in. After all, it was only for the weekend. And I liked it. I just wasn’t in love with it.

After a full day in the hot summer sun, I returned to my room with a sun burn (despite generous helpings of sunscreen)! My skin was red and painful. I gently patted Olay Regenerist all over my face. It really hurt.

The next morning I woke up to nothing. Nothing! My skin was fine. No redness. No burn. No nothing. It looked…normal! This stuff was actually good. I just hadn’t given it a proper chance.

When I got back home, I decided to finish my jar of Olay and not go running back to my luxury creams. And while I still love them too, I have found a special place in my heart for Olay Regenerist.

MY VERDICT: It’s a hardworking cream that delivers on what it promises – even, plump and firm skin. And it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. You really can’t go wrong with this one!
