Olay Regenerist 3 Point super Serum
I do like to have a lot of skin care products tried and tested and to be honest I will often not buy the same one over and over again as I like to try all the new products that all the different companies bring out. This serum from Olay is a relatively new product on the shelves as when I first bought it a few months back it was on some sort of promotional offer and although the RRP is on the high side I found with the special offer that was on and my 10% discount that I can get in Boots it meant that that it bought it down into the (more or less) affordable skin care bracket.
Price and Avalibilty
Like I said when I first got this it was on a special offer and when Boots give out those £5 ladies facial skincare vouchers you can redeem it against this brand and they always seem to be handing those out. However I have just been into buy it and there is no special offer on and I wanted to use my points from my Advantage Card to buy it so I couldn't use any voucher or indeed my 10% discount and the price of £30.63 p was taken from my Advantage card, wiping the balance and in my opinion costing too much. I don't think I would have paid this full price out of my own proper money as it is expensive but getting it from the Advantage card almost feels like getting it for free!
The Olay brand can be found at a lot of different chemist and beauty shops so it is not hard to come by. The Boots stores obviously are the biggest stockist and even in the smaller Boots shops picking this is is no trouble. Having had a look online you might be able to pick it up a little bit cheaper but when you work out postage and packaging and the fact you wouldn't get any Boots points if you got it elsewhere it probably doesn't work out that much cheaper in the long run.
Look and Smell
The product comes housed within an outer card board box which shows a picture of what the bottle inside looks like. It tells you everything you would want to know on the front of the box such as it "dramatically firms the face, neck and décolletage". It says that the product is "super concentrated and has amino-peptide complex in". Which all sounds wonderful and does seem to sell the product slightly. The side of the box gives more detailed information on what you results you should expect to get immediately, after 5 days and after 2 weeks. The immediate results are and instantly plump and hydrates face which has a lifted appearance. After 5 days skin should look dramatically firmer and after 2 weeks you will look like a new born baby. No it doesn't say that but it does say that after 2 weeks fine lines and wrinkles will be reduced and younger looking skin should be apparent. Again all of this information would make any woman want to at least try it out.
The bottle inside the packaging is a red thick plastic pump action one. It has a nice silver lid which pops on and off easily and the design not only looks good but is practical to use too. There is 50ml of product inside the bottle but the only downside I can see with the design is that you cant see how much of the stuff is left in the bottle so you can't tell when you are coming to the end of it which is a little annoying. You can unscrew the pump nozzle though when you are nearing the end and keep the bottle upside down so that at least all of the serum inside can be used up without too much hassle or waste.
The serum that comes out of the bottle has a light golden colour to it and has a glittery type of translucent colour to it which makes it look expensive and luxurious. The smell is apparent as soon as some is removed from the bottle and it is a really fresh, feminine and sweet smell that I really like. It is not too strong that it irritates my sometimes sensitive skin and the fragrance seems to fade within a very short space of time. The shimmery colour that the serum has is only apparent when you have pumped it out and not something that you can notice once the serum has been applied and rubbed into the face area.
General use of the Product
There are basic instructions as to how best to use this Olay serum printed on the side of the outer box and this is really common sense. It does say that you will get better results if you follow this regime so it is really worth doing it the way they say or wrinkles will get you! It says that you should first cleanse your face (with any regeneriste cleaner of course) and then apply 2 pumps of this regenerist 3 point super serum using circular motions over the face, neck and decolletage. Finally you need to then massage the eye, jaw line and neck areas with the cream and hey presto your 10 years younger!
Of course it is not as instantaneous as all of this but following these steps helps you on the way to younger looking skin so it is well worth doing. The serum itself is easy to pump from the bottle and the two pumps that you are recommended to use glides across the skin and takes only a matter seconds before it has all soaked in and the skin begins to feel hydrated and healthy. I really like the way the product moves across the face and it feels like a little treat with every use. It is light in texture and not sticky at all. It has a very smooth feel to it that seems to give the skin a little barrier of protection but not so much that unless you were really taking notes (like I was for this review) that you would even notice it.
I can't say however that I did instantly notice any difference in my skins appearance but I can say that my skin did feel good and I really liked it. I made sure that I was regular in my use of this product because I knew how much it cost at the full price I thought I would really give it a regular use to be able to know exactly how well it did work. It must have taken around 2 months for the product to be entirely used up and I think that in itself shows good value for money as the two pumps really are enough to do the areas I wanted doing each day so a little of this product does do well at going a long way.
As with most of the skin care products that I buy, I wasn't expecting too much as most of them have so many claims and more often than not they never really live up to those claims. However I had to say that I was so impressed with this particular product which is why I have gone out and spent all of my Advantage Card points that I have been saving up for ages.
The results didn't happen at first but slow and surely I was noticing a really good improvement in the state of my skin. The fine lines that I was developing around my eyes were definitely going and my complexion looked clear and healthy in a way that it hasn't done for a long time. I do really think the fact that I stuck at using this product regularly really helped or at least really helped me notice that it was this product that was doing these things to my skin.
I had a few deeper lines around my mouth which is where I smile (laughter lines) and these didn't bother me too much but I did notice them. I found these too seemed less apparent after the weeks that I was using it and these are really the reason for me getting a second bottle because I am hoping to see whether these get any more improvement after another few weeks of continual use. WE shall see.
I have to say that I am so impressed with this serum and it is probably one that I shall continue to use again and again especially if these results continue. The only negative that I can see is the fact that it is very costly and unless there is a special offer on or I have a good amount of Advantage Card points then I can't see me buying it. I guess asking for it for a birthday or Christmas gift would be another way I could get it. But then again if something is this good I suppose I could justify it to myself and Himself!
The design of the bottle looks great and works well. The serum inside smells good and feels lovely on the skin and then the most important part is that the serum itself does actually improve the fine line and wrinkles of the skin whilst giving it a radiant look and super soft feel. I can't see what more you could want from a product that is designed to make the face look better as this is one product that seems to do all it claims to do.
A top score of 5 out of 5 stars and a very high recommendation is exactly what this product deserves and therefore what I shall award. So pleased with it!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
many thanks for taking the time to read.
Summary: A great product
