Back in February, I received a press release announcing that Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex was the number one selling moisturiser in Australia AND it had just been crowned 2012 Product of the Year – Best Female Skincare Product.  Hello??!!  This blog isn’t called The Best Beauty Blog for no reason!  I have a calling (*snort*) to review The Best Beauty Products in the beauty market…and that’s how I got my hands on one of these babies.

First up, I am going to commend the packaging of Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex (or Olay Wrinkle Relaxing Cream as it is called in Asia).  I am a sucker for metallic shiny things and it reminds me of this SK-II cream that I love.  The airless pump dispenser gets a big tick in the box from me…but I guess the difficult part is gauging how much cream is left.  (It’s not a problem for me because I am a beauty hoarder blogger and I have gallons of moisturisers in my stash.)

When I first tried Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex on my skin, it was like watching the Olympics!  The moisturiser glided on like a figure skating gold medalist and my skin did delightful somersaults in the air like an enthusiastic gymnast.  It was love.  4 weeks later, the Olympic torch for this love is still going strong!

I know Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex is a moisturiser, but it is too light for me, my dry skin and I.  So I consider Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex as an added boost before my ‘real moisturiser’…like a serum.  It’s beautiful because it’s light, sinks into skin easily and leaves a soft and smooth skin sensation – which is where I think it would perform well in ironing out fine lines and wrinkles.

Scent is a difficult thing for me to describe with words.  But there is a typical Olay scent which may smell fresh to some but overpowering to others.  If in doubt before purchasing, try and find a tester.

If I am going to nit-pick, the only thing that I did not particularly like about Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex is…wait for it…the name of the product.  I don’t know why but the names of Olay products don’t appeal to me.  I know I am in my EARLY thirties, but using a skincare product with “wrinkle” and “complex” in the name makes me feel like I HAVE a “complex about my wrinkles”!  There, I said it!  And I’m guessing that there are girls in their twenties who wouldn’t be too keen to try this product either based on its name alone.  (Proof : I have THREE sisters in their twenties and they all agree with me!)

Moving along…

There is nothing worse than hunting down a miracle skincare product you love which costs an arm and a leg per ml.  That is not a problem with Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex as it is affordable at AU$49.99 and comes in a healthy 50ml at your local Priceline and supermarkets.

Are you an Olay fan?  What skincare products do you love?  And is anyone else happy that it is Friday tomorrow?

    Thank you for the great review! Sounds like a lovely product. I tend to opt for moisturisers that are lightweight and relatively thin in consistency as they easily absorb into the skin. I do agree with you that the term ‘wrinkle’ would steer those in their twenties away.

      @Rose, Aw thanks Rose. And yeah, lightweight but effective moisturisers are great.

      P.S. I never ever ever ever want wrinkles!!!!!
