Young hearts run free. Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Relaxing Complex
Confession time. I am super obsessed by my recent on-set of wrinkles. From going from a relatively youthful looking early twenty-something, who would constantly get ID’d and who did not have grey hairs let alone wrinkles, I have practically transformed overnight into a mid twenty-something old crow (or should that be crows feet?) who longs for the days of being challenged when buying a bottle of pinot grigio.
Thankfully, there is Olay. I am a massive fan of Olay products (their Beauty Fluid is a must have- you can read my original review here) and was extremely excited to put their latest addition from the Olay Regenerist line, Wrinkle Relaxing Complex* to the test.
Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Relaxing Complex takes powerful ingredients to provide both immediate and long term effects in the fight against wrinkles. This wonderfully soft moisturising product contains the following:
Peptide: peptide is famous for very good reason. Peptide helps to stimulate the skin’s natural repair mechanism by increasing collagen production and protecting skins structure against mischievous free radicals that will cause havoc with your skin.
Optical micro-fillers: sounds exciting right? A combination of four different particles gives skin an immediate, visual reduction in fine lines and wrinkles by mimicking the optical signature of younger skin.
Olay intense moisturisers: to hydrate and plump skin, helping to smooth and even appearance.
Niacinamide: Niacinamide helps strengthen the skin’s barrier function and reduces the appearance of fine lines, alongside evening out skin tone and reducing redness.
Vitamin E and Pro-Vitamin B5: these wonderful vitamins help to fortify and protect the skin’s surface.
Peptamide Y6: this is a powerful bio-peptide which is extracted from yeast fermentation which helps to improve skin’s elasticity by keeping it hydrated.
And the most exciting part of this product? It really works and I for one am completely bowled over. This cashmere-soft, balmy moisturiser instantly sinks into skin, leaving skin silky soft and smooth, not to mention completely refreshed. Skin looks instantly lighter and brighter, and pesky lines and wrinkles are instantly softened and amazingly, much less noticeable.
Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Complex can be used over cleansed skin, and can be used with your normal moisturiser or alone. This makes a brilliant base for foundation working amazingly well as a primer. Less is more is key however – do not over pile your foundation; instead, keep it light and let your skin do the talking.
If the immediate effects are impressive, so are the longer term effects. I have been using this daily for the past fourteen days, and my skin feels wonderfully replenished and softened. My fine forehead lines look lessened and I couldn’t be more delighted.
Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Complex is priced at £29.99, and is currently on offer at Superdrug for a snip at£19.99.
