After the recent launch of Olay Regenerist Night Resurfacing Essence, Olay is proud to launch their re-formulated anti-aging moisturizer – Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream – that is claimed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in just one jar! Recently, I was glad to be invited to review this new anti-aging moisturizer.

Formulated with two new anti-aging ingredients, Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream (claimed to be America’s #1 selling anti-aging moisturizer), penetrates rapidly to deliver anti-aging ingredients 10 layers deep into skin’s surface. Results:

• 1 Day: Reduces the appearance of lines, boosts hydration & brightness
• 14 Days: Skin is noticeably firmer and skin elasticity is improved
• 28 Days: Reverses the look of up to 10 years of wrinkles

Do you know skin fatigue and tiredness will make your skin looking dull, rough and dry? When our skin is dry or dehydrated, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles will appear more obvious but fortunately these can be improved with proper skin care routine.

With a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle, skin fatigue can be prevented with a proper skin care routine. Skin fatigue can also be caused by internal factors such as poor diet, mental stress, smoking, alcohol or inadequate sleep.

Ingredients

olay regenerist micro sculpting cream moisturizer

One of its key ingredients, Glycerin, the 2nd ingredient after water in the ingredient list, is a humectant that has the ability to attract water from the environment and from the lower layers of skin (dermis) increasing the amount of water in the surface layers of skin.

Another key ingredient Niacinamide, the 4th ingredient, is known as vitamin B3 and nicotinic acid, is a potent cell-communicating ingredient that offers multiple benefits for aging skin. It is said to improve skin’s elasticity, dramatically enhance its barrier function, help erase discolorations, and revive skin’s healthy tone and texture. It is said to be an ideal ingredient for those struggling with wrinkles.

Other key ingredients include palmitoyl pentapeptide-4, Dill Extract and Sodium PEG-7 Olive Oil Carboxylate.

This new anti-aging moisturizer actually contains Benzyl Alcohol that may be drying and irritating to the skin. Fortunately it is stated in the middle of the ingredient list. It also contains a small amount of Titanium Dioxide and Mica that give a white cast, sparkle and shine to the skin.

 

Review

After testing the anti-aging moisturizer for almost 2 weeks, day and night, I’m now ready to review it. A light refreshing scent greeted me upon opening the jar for the first time. It actually makes a first good impression. The scent has slightly fade away by now upon constant opening of the jar.

It has a rather rich and creamy texture that gives a luxurious feel on the skin and glides over my skin easily. I tend to apply a thick layer of the cream during the night regimen hence it leaves a slightly greasy feeling on the skin which it’s perfectly alright for me as I sleep in an air-conditioned room. But for the day regimen, I only apply a thin layer hence my skin doesn’t feel greasy at all.

As this new Olay moisturizer actually contains Titanium Dioxide and Mica, I reckon either one or both ingredients somewhat leave a tinge of white cast on my skin upon application. Mica is said to give skin a brighter finish.

My skin instantly appears smooth, soft and hydrated upon each application, however my skin occasionally appears matte the next morning. Not too sure if it is due to the Benzyl Alcohol that can be drying to the skin.

After using it for almost 2 weeks from now, I see a slight improvement, fine lines on my forehead appear less visible and my skin appears firmer, less dull and smooth. Do note that despite the product name, it is not a face-lift in a jar.

I will have to say this NEW Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is well-formulated with a handful of great potent ingredients. Great job Olay! However it is packed in a jar which means the active ingredients may lose their effectiveness due to constant exposure to air. My recommendation is to scope a small portion of the cream and placed it into a small container (size of a fifty cents coin) for your daily use.
