We have all come to expect Olay to deliver the goods when it comes to anti ageing creams and serums. In fact, their products adorn many a bathroom shelf and it is this loyalty to the brand that goes some way into proving that we believe the blurb on the labels. The promise of younger looking skin, firmer jaw lines and fewer wrinkles keep us buying into the dream that Olay are happy to provide. But have they tapped into another market by accident? Several reviews of this new product, Olay’s Regenerist Night Renewal Elixir suggest that it is not only younger looking skin we can expect but more healthy looking too. People who have suffered from acne for years are trying this cream and the results have been amazing to say the least.
Olay says that this is a solution that goes beyond moisturisation to reveal smoother, firmer looking skin in 7 nights. It accelerates skin renewal while you sleep, revealing smoother skin when you wake. It improves hydration to help leave skin softer with improved skin barrier function and is a ‘power-house’ of ingredients including Olay Regenerist’s signature penta-peptides, glycolic acid, humectants, anti-oxidants and skin soothers and conditioners. One of the main ingredients in Olay’s Elixir cream is Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract which is in fact Green Tea, a great benefit for those who suffer from acne. Many people who have acne try harsh chemicals in an attempt to dry out the skin and this leaves it unmoisturised and unable to repair itself. With Olay’s Elixir, the cream is specifically designed to moisturise and rejuvenate the skin, allowing the dead cells to be replaced with new growth.
Acne sufferers have reported a visible difference in their spots after only a few days use and especially when combined with the Flawless Skin Cream. It also appears to treat the scars left by acne spots and reduces them, leaving skin looking brighter and more healthy in the process. For best results, Olay suggest using Regenerist Night Renewal Elixir at night, followed by Regenerist Super Serum and Regenerist Flawless Skin Cream SPF30 in the morning. In addition, choose from Regenerist’s range of cleansers as well as targeted treatments and beauty treats to personalise your regime based on your specific skin needs. We think this is definitely something to put on the label! Priced at £29.99 and available from all good chemists.
