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!)
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?
