I first used Olay Regenerist 30 Second Wrinkle Filler after receiving a trial size in an Olay 'gift with purchase', and was very dubious about its claim to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in only 30 seconds. I was therefore extremely interested to see whether it had any effect, and if so, how long that effect would last.
I find that it works best when used as part of my make-up routine, as I don't think it works as a long-term anti-wrinkle treatment. I use it especially on the fairly deep creases above my upper lip, as they are the worst-affected area on my face in terms of wrinkles. I also occasionally dab a bit on the vertical crease between my eyebrows. I don't bother using it on my forehead - the lines there aren't too bad (yet!), and my fringe covers most of them.
You should apply your daily moisturiser and let it absorb, then use the filler to target wrinkle-prone areas.
The product comes in a long, slim tube with a red top. The top itself is very thin, and is tapered towards the tip. This is so that you can apply the cream directly into your wrinkles, and that's how I use it. The product itself is lovely and creamy, and has a mattifying effect. I squeeze a small amount of the cream into the worst of my wrinkles, wait for a few moments, then gently dab the cream into the skin, concentrating on the wrinkles above my lip and also into the 'smile' brackets at the sides of my mouth. I don't apply foundation or powder over the top, as I find that the colour of the cream, and the matte effect, gives sufficient coverage.
The Detailed Product Information on Boots' website says that this product 'penetrates into the wrinkle surface to immediately reduce the appearance of wrinkle depth and length. At the surface, Olay Regenerist 30 Second Wrinkle Filler creates a micro-bonding network that seals in moisturiser to regenerate skin's appearance, and diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles all day'.
In my opinion the effect does not last for the whole day, so you would probably want to apply it again later. Luckily, the container is nice and slim, so would easily fit into your make-up bag. And if you have one of the trial sizes, then that is perfect for carrying with you.
This product is on the pricey side for what is after all only a temporary effect. However, the effect is so marked, and you only need a tiny amount each time, that I think it's definitely worth using as part of your make-up routine. The RRP is just over £25, but there are usually offers around so that you can get it for less. Boots currently (as of 29th April) sell it for £25.52, and Superdrug for £25.48. However, shopping online produces some great bargains. Amazon currently have it for £8.50 with free UK delivery, and you can also find it on ebay for a similar price.
I'm delighted to have discovered this product. The deep creases above my lip seemed to appear almost overnight, and I had become very conscious of them. So anything that helps that area is more than welcome!
Although temporary, the effect is quite remarkable, and so I give it five stars.

The first time I used Olay Regenerist 30 Second Wrinkle filler was only by chance. I was purchasing my usual Olay Regenerist products (which I totally swear by) at Boots. Due to puchasing certain products I recieved Olay Regenerist samples in a handy make up bag.
It contained a small tube of the wrinkle filler and I thought no more of it until I had a wedding reception to attend. I thought why not, and gave it a go, and haven't looked back. It is now a firm favourite in my make up routine.
The product feels like it is a mix between a cream and a paste, I know it doesn't sound great but in fact it is. The colour has a slight luminosity to it although it does not highlight your skin. You only need a really small amount as the product glides on effortlessly. The product also helps to mattify the skin and reduce shine, but I only used it with the main conern of disguising my fine lines and wrinkles.
I have a few frown lines between my eyebrows, and a more noticeable wrinkle on on my top lip due to the way I sleep on my side. This is still not a really deep wrinkle. I used this product under my make up and my foundation glided on effortlessly. The effects lasted until I removed my make up. I got a few comments asking if I'd had a facial or my hair done or something, but no, just a few pounds on a product I only tried by accident.
I took a chance and recommended it to my friends and my mother, who is really fussy about products which make "silly" claims but she and my friend use this product now. It will not give lasting permanent results but will give a boost to lightly wrinkled skin. I do not know how the product would perfom on deeper wrinkles. My mother's skin is remarkably unlined and great for her age, so she too only uses it to even out slight lines at the sides of her eyes under her make up.
Despite the size of the tube (a small 30ml size) my first tube a sample size lasted me 6 weeks of continuous use, so the product I would say is good value for money.
I haven't used any other type of wrinkle filler so I'm unable to offer a comparison to others on the market. However, I am satisfied with this products to do not feel the need to purchase an alternative.
If you are expecting miracles from this product then forget it, its not for you. If you are expecting this product to smooth out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles albeit on a temporary basis and to make your make up look great and last a bit longer, then I would say go for it, you certainly would not be disappointed.
The product is a must have in my make up bag now along with many other Olay Regenerist products.
I love this olay filler it is a great alternative to the other ones of the market. My eyes feel wonderful when I apply this product and my lines around my eyes seemed to have faded. I also applied it to my forehead as well and there has been some fading evident there too. The cream is easy to apply as it comes out of the tube quite easily, the texture is smooth and there is a pleasant aroma. When you add it to the eye area it easily rubs in and there is a soothing sensation which immediately relaxs the eye. The cream is light and soon disappears on the skin with out feeling greasy or sticky. Only a small amount of cream is applied and I have found using one tube lasts me about two months and if shop around on ebay you can find it about half the price what to the normal retailers sell it at. Definately 10/10 for this product
As every woman knows, wrinkles are the thing that every female, certainly over the age of about 25, wants to find a solution to. There are lots of supposedly 'miracle' treatments on the market, ranging upwards in price from the affordable to the ridiculous. When I found a sample tube of Olay 30 Second Wrinkle Filler in one of my magazines, I was pleased; if a little sceptical at how well it would work. I was, therefore surprised and delighted by the results it gave - a tiny amount applied to my forehead frown lines made a marked difference to their appearance.
The cream is the colour of a fair foundation and is a fairly thick consistency. It is designed to be applied to the forehead area and having tried it around the eyes and mouth too, I would suggest that it does indeed work best on brow lines.
The best way to apply it, in to squeeze a little onto a clean finger and gently smooth it onto the frown/wrinkle lines. It works as a matifier, reducing the amount of light reflected by the skin and the look of shadow. This gives an overall effect of 'smoothing out' the lines. Be sparing, use a small amount and don't rub it in, I have found that it can almost be re-activated during the day by smoothing a finger over it again. I am 50 and have quite a good skin, but obviously, by the time you get to my age, wrinkles will be starting to appear in earnest! There is nothing in the makeup line that can remove them but I am actually delighted with the way this product is helping to disguise the lines on my forehead. Nothing can stop the ravages of time, but I reckon this is a good product and I would certainly recommend it.
I have a few wrinkles appearing around my eyes these days, and so I was very pleased to receive a free sample tube of Olay's Regenerist 30 Second Wrinkle Filler in the post after signing up to the Olay website.
The Wrinkle Filler promises to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in just 30 seconds, and this effect is supposed to last throughout the whole day. It also promises to moisturise the skin and to 'target deep wrinkles and expression lines on the forehead and around the mouth' specifically.
The Wrinkle Filler comes in a small silver tube with a narrow red nozzle on the end that allows you to squeeze out just a little of the filler. The filler is much thicker than I expected, it is like a very firm liquid foundation or concealer, and when squeezed out it maintains its shape. However as soon as you start to rub it in it becomes very supple and malleable and much more like a cream rather than a paste. Applying it to your face is a pleasant experience as it is smooth and easy to spread out.
I didn't find that this had very much of an effect on my wrinkles. It perhaps made them a little less noticeable, and it certainly moisturised them, but it didn't make them disappear. The best effects were on the most minor wrinkles, which did fade somewhat, but the deeper ones hardly seemed touched by the filler.
I also found that the filler lightened the skin due to its pale colour. As it's only available in one shade I wouldn't think it would therefore be suitable for people with darker skin tones, such as olive skinned or tanned people. However if you plan to cover it with foundation you may be ok.
I would say that this is better than using nothing at all on your wrinkles, and if yours are only very shallow and slight then it may make a good difference, but if you have deep wrinkles then you will probably need something stronger. This is the first wrinkle filler I have tried so I am not sure what else is out there, I hope there is something better though. On the other hand, I am aware that there's probably not a miracle cure!
This filler costs a huge £23.97 for a tube, though is currently on offer at Boots for £16.97 so if you want to try some then now is a good time. If this had been more affordable I would have given it 3 stars but for such a high price I would want more of a result.
As anyone who reads my reviews knows I am a complete sucker for anything in the wrinkle department which claims to be new, improved, faster working, deeper working etc. etc.
Having spent so much money on No. 7 anti-wrinkle creams, freeze 24/7, eyesential to name but a few I decided against splashing out over £25.00 on a small tube of Olay Regenerist's new 30 second wrinkle filler which claims amongst other things to reduce the appearance of deep lines in the few seconds it takes to apply.
When I saw the free trial for this little pen on offer via the Olay website I couldn't get my details in quickly enough. It didn't matter if there was only a few days worth of use in it all I needed was one or two goes to check whether it worked or not without having to spend all that money. Which was then wasted if it was as unsuitable as previous smoothing lotions and potions had been. After all you don't need to wait 30 days for results this product promises results in 30 seconds so one try is all you need to know if it will work for you.
After a week of excitedly waiting for the postman to ring the bell or rushing through the front door at break neck speed at 5:30pm I was rewarded. My newest little miracle had arrived.
I was quite impressed on opening to find quite a good sized tube certainly enough to last a week or two if you were just using it on the forehead and under the eyes. The cream was in a slim tube with a pointy nozzle at the end. The nozzle I read was to allow you to easily aim the enclosed substance perfectly into your wrinkly bits.
I didn't fancy applying straight onto the wrinkles so squeezed a little out onto a clean finger. The cream was quite dense and resembled the colour of a fair shade of foundation. The cream spread easily under the eye and at first glance the change was amazing, the thick cream disguised the furrows underneath and the light foundation shade covered the black rings.
Unfortunately when you started to blend it in the coverage blended away.
There was a slight improvement in the look but the blending had totally taken away the miracle, but it was too obvious sitting there like a thick blob of foundation to leave it without blending.
Following the disappointment under the eyes I started on the wrinkles on the forehead, I'm even starting to get the hint of the number 11 lines right between the eyes so targeted these first. After patting around the lines of brown cream there was a small difference in tone, texture and depth but only if you got out a magnifying glass and carefully examined it. Once the cream had dried on my forehead and under the eyes there was a little bit of a powdery residue which made applying foundation very difficult.
If I had to put a percentage improvement on the wrinkles I would have to go with about 5 - 10%.
Admittedly my skin type doesn't seem to work as well with these kinds of anti wrinkle products as others do, greasy skin particularly seems to show a more marked improvement going by past experience, so while I unfortunately do not rate this product and will not be purchasing the full size I am quite happy to point you in the direction of a free sample to let you make up your own mind as all skin types seem to react differently to these type of products.
My search for the holy grail of wrinkle busters goes on - but give it a go yourself its free as at April 06 2009 and it might work for you.
