This cream is nice and easy to apply to the skin. It feels creamy to the touch of my fingers and once applied to the face absorbs quickly into my skin and doesn't leave an oily, greasy residue which many other creams have done.
The pot is small but I discovered that only a small amount is needed per application so I should think it would last quite a while. It can be used on the face and neck and used as a day cream as there is no visible residue. Likewise, it doubles up as a night cream - just apply a bit extra then you would do in the morning.
A little instruction leaflet comes with the pot of cream. You must warm it between your fingers before putting it on the three areas that they feel are problem places. The three areas are; the neck, under the eyes, and along the line of the jaw. The information will explain the best method of massage.
It does have quite a powerful scent which I find very off putting. If you prefer delicate scents or none at all then this is not the cream for you.
I used this for a few weeks. Initially, my skin felt smoother. However, after a few days of use I noticed my skin looked slightly reddish on my forehead and cheeks. I stopped using the cream after four weeks and only used water to wash my face, skipping any moisturiser, and by the next day the slight sore looking skin had healed up. I am almost certain that the problem came from the cream and that it is too strong on the chemical content.
I should have done a patch test first but I suppose I was being lazy and too reliant on the brand name as something I could trust my skin to. That is my fault but looking at the ingredients it is heavy duty in the chemical list. I really should have known better than to choose this and yet I had higher hopes from a cream that is marketed as a premium product by a reputable company. Again, I should make clear that it is my own fault for not carrying out a patch test and that there will be many people who experience no difficulties at all.
Here's the list of ingredients copied from their information so you can see how many chemicals in the cream:
Aqua, Glycerin, Isohexadecane, Niacinamide, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Isopropyl Isotearate, Nylon-12, Dimethicone, Panthenol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, Carnosine, Soluble Collagen, Elastin, Aloe Barbadensis Gel, Camelia Sinensis Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Allantoin, Tocopherol, Dimethiconol, C13-14 Isoparaffin, C12-13 Pareth-3, PEG-100 Stearate, Cetearyl Glucoside, Laureth-7, Arachidyl Alcohol, Behenyl Alcohol, Benzyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Myristyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sodium Acrylates Copolymer, Polyacrylamide, Ammonium Polyacrylate, Citric Acid, Palmitic Acid, Stearic Acid, Polyethylene, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Titanium Dioxide, Mica, Tin Oxide, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Benzoate, Phenoxyethanol, Disodium EDTA, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Parfum, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Benzyl Salicylate, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Citronellol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene, Linalool
This is quite a scary list of chemicals.
I haven't really got much in the way of wrinkles but I can see where they will creep in. I don't think it really did anything to diminish those creeping in lines.
I have a feeling you are paying the premium for a posh looking, red, glass jar and some soft feeling cream which does smell. Perhaps that I could smell it was a warning to me that my skin wasn't going to take to it.
If you've got the money to spend then try it out because plenty of people swear by this cream. If money is tight don't waste it as there are other creams that also feel good, leave the face with a healthy glow, and smoother feel. Dramatically younger skin is the claim, but not for me, I'm sorry to say.
It's much cheaper on Amazon just now than anywhere else I've seen at £10.49 instead Amazon normal price of £30.63.
This is a review of Olay Regenerist Daily 3 Point Treatment Cream which has been my latest moisturiser. I always liked the Olay beauty fluid so was interested to try this new cream as my skin has been pretty dry whilst being pregnant so a more intense solution was required!
The 50ml of cream comes in a smart glass burgundy jar with a silver lid. It looks really premium and definitely high end to me.
Get beautifully fresh, younger-looking skin around those hard-to-treat areas - the eyes, jaw line and neck. This contains Olay's most concentrated amino-peptide formula ever. It treats the difficult areas that some products ignore- achieves dramatically younger-looking skin with the high levels of amino-peptide.
Prices vary a lot for this, you can pay up to £30 for a 50ml jar which sounds a lot for Olay! On cheap smells website it costs a more reasonable £17 or on Amazon for £14. I picked up my jar from the supermarket a while ago but can't remember what I paid at the time.
This cream is quite thick when you pick it out of the jar, but a small amount does go a long way and it is advised to use on the face, jaw and neck. I concentrate on my face as that's where I need it most. I tend to use this more at night time as it is thicker and in the day time use a thinner cream under make up.
As it is fragrance free there is nothing to say on 'smell' which is good as I am not a big fan of fragranced facial products. I like the consistency of the cream and have found after a few weeks of use that my skin feels a lot more bouncy and moisturized. It sinks in to the skin really quickly and does not feel at all greasy which is a huge plus point. I think this is a really sophisticated formula which will suit a lot of skin types and ages.
I will definitely buy this again but will shop around for the best price as I don't want to pay £30 for 50ml when I can get it for half of that! I like the packaging and the 50ml bottle will last me months as I use it at night time mainly. It is amongst the best moisturizers I have ever used and I am happy to recommend it.
Olay was the first moisturiser I ever used, that was in the days when it was called Oil of Ulay.
Nowadays , I use Decleor, Elemis and other premium brands.
I am not entirely happy with the results they deliver , perhaps because I expect too much and my skin has changed quite a lot in the past few years and so I am always trying new products.
As a result I have spent a small fortune over the years, so I decided I should look for a cheaper range and Olay was the brand I decided to try.
I really want to find one outstanding product and try to stick with that , as I suspect that using too many brands might actaully have an adverse effect.
I was quite overwhelmed by the range when I was making my selection; it is extensive and covers many different price points.
When I purchased, unfortunately there wasn't a sample pot available to try, so after much pondering I plumped for the Regenerist range as it is claims to achieve dramatically younger looking skin particularly around the eyes, neck and jaw-line. Somewhat surprising is that it can be used around the eye area, as most products used on the face are not suitable for the delicate skin around the eyes.
At the time it was on offer but normally retails at £29.99 which is at the top end of the Olay range, however there was £10 off when I purchased.
Comes in a box with a 50ml pot inside
I like the pot which is glass (or a plastic that feels like glass) in a red/burgundy colour with a screw off silver lid.
It is a nice weight so is sturdy and will not break easily.
Inside is another cream plastic lid which further protects the product, simply lift off to reach the product.
It is a creamy white colour, a medium thick consistency.
It feels light and creamy and is a really nice consistency.
It has a strong perfume smell, which to me seems at odds with a product that you are going to apply on your face and near your eyes. In fact there is a warning on the back of the jar which says to avoid getting into your eyes.
It isn't an unpleasant smell, it just seemed too heavy for me, but perhaps that is because I was using plant based moisturisers.
Olay recommend using this twice a day and following their 3 step massage technique to achieve the best results.
This involves applying the product whilst massaging around your eyes, jaws and neck in a series of strokes that were developed in collaboration with a top London facialist.
The first step is to apply the product liberally to a cleansed face.
Warm between your hands for a few seconds and then put liberal amounts covering the entire face, eye and neck area.
Then follow the instructions for the three movements which illustrate how to massage the product into your face neck and décolletage area to gain maximum benefit.
All the movements are described on their website at Olay. co.uk in great detail but basically involve using a series of upward and outward movements on the face and neck.
To be honest the movements are probably not that different to how most people apply moisturiser anyway, which is to massage in using upward movements, but if you don't know how to do this, visit the Loreal website for the full instructions.
I did not follow the 3 point massage system, simply applied as I would any other moisturiser and I did not use this around my eye area, because of the scent.
I have dry mature sensitive skin and was a bit concerned that I would react to this initially, but it didn't actually make my skin tingle.
It does make your skin look radiant and smoother, but leaves the skin feeling quite greasy and takes a while to absorb into your skin. Once absorbed it made my skin feel quite tight.
I avoided the eye area which was lucky as whilst using this I did suffer from watery eyes, which I didn't at first connect with the product, but after eliminating other things I use, concluded this was the cause.
So although I did not use near my eyes, I was obviously touching my eyes or transferring product, which caused them to react.
I wasn't therefore able to use this on a long term basis so cannot comment on its long term effectiveness.
Olay claim that it will immediately plump up your skin, which I did not experience.
Olay say that after continuous use for 4 weeks it will cause skin to renew and helps areas prone to sagging, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and restores elasticity and suppleness.
I feel that in the time I used this, like a lot of moisturisers, achieve a temporarily effect on radiance, lines and wrinkles smoothing them out as you apply, but the effect wears off with the product.
I don't feel this is the product for you if you are prone to sensitivity and that it is not particularly suited to dry skin.
The product will last 12 months after opening, but I have had mine for significantly longer than that and it has not deteriorated.
This product does contain parabens and a lot of other scary sounding ingredients including alcohols and acids; however most companies do not list their ingredients so I dare say these are commonly found in cosmetics. It's selling point is the amount of concentrated amino-peptide used.
Price and availability
Retails at 29.99, Boots currently have this with £5 off. It is available in most Chemists and some supermarkets, also from online retailers.
This is the most expensive range Olay do, so shop around and look out for offers.
Would I recommend?
Sadly it wasn't for me. Not moisturising enough and it caused irritation to my eyes. Plus I found the smell too overpowering for a moisturiser.
Overall I don't think it is suitable for very dry skin or sensitive skin
However it does get extremely good ratings an average 4.6 out of 5 and 35 reviews on one website, so my recommendation is to obtain a sample of the product and try before you buy as this is a highly rated product.
Olay will send you samples if you ask, visit their website at Olay.co.uk
A difficult one to rate, as it really caused me irritation, so only a single star from me
==Olay Regenerist 3 Point Treatment Cream==
I have been worried quite a bit lately about the state of my skin especially on my face. This is because it seems I am fast approaching 30 and being a stressed out working mother who smokes to much and likes a tipple now and again means that I am not ding my skin any favours. So to try to combat the inevitable signs of ageing I am trying to find a face cream that does actually work. My favourite serum has got to be No.7 Protect and Perfect but its closely followed by the Olay Regenerist Serum which I reviewed a month or so ago. At the same time of buying the Olay Serum I also bought this 3 Point Treatment Cream and have found a new favourite!
Its not cheap by any means but then again the good creams never are and at £30.63 p as the recommended retail price it is a cream that did take me a little while to decide on purchasing. Typical though because having just looked online Boots have £10 off this RRP and Amazon have it at nearly half price! Am contemplating stocking up.
You get 50 ml of the cream inside a small dumpy screw capped pot for your money. The deep red colour of the pot makes it have an expensive feel (well I guess it was expensive) and the lid has a super shin mirror finish so you can look at yourself or in my case get the lid covered in greasy finger prints and have to clean it lots! The pot does the job and does it well and I have no complains as far as the design goes.
The cream inside the pot is a off white creamy colour and to look at has a very thick and dense texture to it. It has a really nice aroma as well which is very cosmetic smelling and a little sweet. This is quite noticeable although once on the skin this seems to disappear and it doesn't affect my sometimes sensitive skin.
The Olay Regenerist 3 Point Treatment Cream claims to "treat the difficult areas that other creams sometimes ignore" and "achieves dramatically younger looking skin with the high levels of amnio-peptide formula". This all sounds good and was probably the main reason I was drawn to buying this particular cream at the time when I did. The lure of "dramatically" reducing areas sounds great to me and I had particular concerns around my laughter lines of my cheeks and the frown lines above my nose.
Applying the cream is simple and no different from any other face cream of this sort. The best time to apply it is in the morning and evening after you have just cleansed your face and it is squeaky clean. I find that with this product a few dabs of it is really all you need and it is the case that a little bit of product does go a long way. Thank goodness as it is rather costly! I dot my face with a finger tip amount of the cream on each cheek, my forehead and then my nose then proceed to rub the cream into my skin using circular motions. I would probably add a dab to my chin and neck area too as I am always worried about the dreaded chicken neck in later life.
The cream itself feels light and smooth on my skin and glides around effortlessly. It has an instant cooling and energising feeling making me feel more hydrated and generally well looked after. The cream soaks into my skin really well in a minute or two and leaves it feeling slightly plumper but smooth and silky without being tacky at all. I have been using the cream for a good few months and am now coming to the end of the tub and my overall opinion of the cream is a really good one. The fine lines around my mouth from laughter are still there admittedly but they do appear to be less dramatic than they first were. The frown lines above my nose area on my forehead have definitely reduced and instead of sticking there even when I wasn't frowning have now smoothed right down.
I can't say that this has got rid of the lines that were causing me concern completely because in reality I don't feel that any cream, however expensive, would totally eradicate them but this Olay Regenerist cream really has worked wonders at making them appear less noticeable and thus less of a concern for me. The cream itself has lasted a fairly good time and even paying the top RRP price that I did pay for the pot doesn't feel too expensive now because of the results that I have had from it.
All in all I feel that this cream is a brilliant one and it does actually do what it says it does. The cream feels nice, smells nice and works really well. I will definitely be buying another pot and probably soon as it is running out and the offers that are on at the moment make this cream an absolute bargain. I would highly recommend it to one and all and give it the thumbs up with a top score of 5 out of 5 stars.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
many thanks for taking the time to read.
This specific moisturiser is simply incredible. It's specifically designed to target any problem areas just like your eye lids, jawline as well as neck and throat, and can also be used as an alternative to a different day time or night time cream. Easy to apply, rubs in easily and smells absolutely gorgeous.
It's really a great foundation for make up and leaves skin noticeably smoother and more radiant. I personally use a thicker application at night and by the morning my skin is glowing beautifully. My family and friends have said that I look much younger since I have started deploying it this past year and I can truthfully declare it has definitely helped to erase fine lines that I seem to have acquired round my eyes as I have got older.
I've experimented with countless different moisturisers, some of the cheaper brands that you can purchase in high street stores as well as the more expensive ones for example: Gatineau and Clinique however I've got to say this one beats them all without a shadow of a doubt.
The pot itself looks quite nice when it's on my dressing table too and doesn't look out of place amongst my other potions and perfumes.
Pamper yourself and try it! You will not be disappointed at all. It's now a vital part of my personal beauty routine and will be for as long as they continue to make it.
I have always loved olay products especially olay regenerist 3 point treament cream! Amazing afforable price from as low as £13.99 on amazon.co.uk also boots have offers on when buying the serum and cream together because for maxium results use then Both, cream one day serum the next! That's what I do and defo can see and feel a difference. The cream is quite thick but goes on well and absords almost straight away! Rub the cream between your hands first to warm the product up then apply to your face neck and chest area you will feel instant benefit! Your skin just feels recharged, I do it before bed and when I wake in the morning I can still feel my skin so soft and doesn't look as tired as without!! Excellent product generous sized tub to will last about 3 months a little goes along way.....defo worth the money, but if you log onto olay website they will send you free of charge samples!! So don't take my word for it go try for your self for FREE!!
Wow, I dont usually get sucked into all the hype that surrounds new products (especially from the beauty industry) who like to baffle us mere mortals with strange sounding scientific words for the most basic ingredients, nor do I buy into the patented formulas they seem to release onto the market every second of every day but I think I might just have found a cosmetic product that at the very least promises to do exactly what the glossy adverts promise!
Olay has been for years a very respected higher end brand who dont usually seem to fall foul of the synics in the same way that other brands do. I very rarely see them being slated for false claims or mis leading advertising (thats not to say it doesnt happen). The only reason I have purchased a full size pot of this cream is thanks to a cheeky little sample I aquired courtesy of their website. My initial thoughts were its free so lets try it and that is exactly what I did so it speaks volumes that I have now gone and purchased the full size product aswell as recommending it!
A 50ml pot will set you back a jaw dropping £23.50 at one "hell bent on world domination supermarket" (pretty pricey for a high street brand) but keep an eye on the market for a better deal as I purchased mine at Superdrugs for a couple of pence over £15! Olay promise that the cream will deliver some pretty impressive results:
reduces appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, firming and lifting of areas prone to sagging. restoration of elasticity and suppleness to name a few. Apparently it contains "amino peptide complex" there we go again with the scientific stuff! (peptides are complexes designed to make use of a chain of amino acids that release proteins to nourish the skin (like we didnt already know that eh!) after researching I am advised that a good peptide complex can moisturise the skin and thus keep skin looking younger than it might if you didnt use a moisturiser. Part of Olay's Regenerist range the cream is not highly scented, next to no scent infact, it has a very creamy, velvety feel but not greasy in any way.
How To Use:
It is easily applied by just gently rubbing into the face and/or neck, concentrating on the jaw line, neck and around the eyes with circular motions after you have warmed in your hands first (it is recommended on Olay's website that you pay more attention to doing this at night and use a little more cream than during the day as skin is more receptive whilst your sleeping). Olay also suggest using on the back of your hands to hydrate your cuticles and soften hands!
I have been using this cream for a little under a month now almost religously day and night and I have noticed an improvement in the general appearance and feel of my skin. Now without actually having a before and after analysis of my skin provided by a high powered microscope that can scruntinise my imperfections and a dermatologist to varify my claims you'll have to take my word for it! I am not sure that the fine wrinkles have evaporated just yet but my skin does feel softer and actually appears to be smoother with an all over more even skin tone. My skin feels more hydrated and the pores seem reduced (not a great deal but enough that I have noticed) and I am afterall my biggest critic. I have been that impressed by the cream I actually went out and purchased the serum which Olay recommend you use in conjunction (I have only been using the serum for a few days so I dont think its fair that I review just yet).
The standard price is steep and if you were to purchase other products to use in conjunction with it from the regenerist range you could end up seriously out of pocket unless you can find them on a promotion.
Olay offer samples of lots of their products and you can also register to their club to recieve more samples, hints, tips, product offers and advice. A full list of all the products in the regenerist range and other ranges are also available.
The ingredients list is colossal and I have decided not to list anything here on the grounds that I have no idea exactly what everything is but you can find a comprehensive list on the Tesco website.
It does pain me to say this I am actually impressed with this cream. It may not be for everyone but for me it seems to be a winning formula as it has made some subtle changes to my skin. After a month the pot is roughly half full so I guess this will last about two months or so depending on how liberal you are with it. I certainly feel better for using it and for me that is reason enough to justify the £15 I spent on it! (and incidently I would be happy to pay the full price now that I have seen the results)
I absolutely love beauty products and I am definitely one to try on new products.
I remember the advert on TV claiming it was the "American Dream Cream worth £30", and all the reviews in the magazines were praising it. I decided it was time for me to try it!
I was a bit upset about the price, as you obviously cannot tell before trying a product if it's going to suit you or not. It could be extraordinary for some, but not suitable for your skin type. I talked to my mum about the product, asking her if it was worth paying so much money for a face cream, when my usual daily moisturiser was around £10. After I told her all about the proprieties of the cream, she told me she was interested to try it as well, so we decided to head to the shop.
Just at the time, Boots had a "buy one get one free" offer and we grabbed it for half price!
This cream is amazing. It feels really fresh on your skin when you apply it, it is not greasy at all and your skin feels immediately smooth and supple. It smells really good as well, and seems to make it easier to apply my liquid foundation on top. It is quickly absorbed to, so you don't need to wait ages before putting on your make up!
In the winter I tend to have patches of dry skin on my cheeks because of the weather, but as I was using this cream I didn't get them at all, and my skin is definitely more moisturised now that I've been using the cream!
I know the price can make you think twice, but I think it is definitely worth the money! plus, if you stock up when there is an offer ( buy one get one free, or a 1/3 off) it makes it cheaper! As well, if you know a student or have children with NUS cards, you can get 10% off in Superdrug!
What are you waiting for?
I've always been a fan of the Olay Regenerist range, and have wanted to try this particular moisturiser for sometime. The price tag of £29.99 had put me off a little, as my regualr Olay Regenerist moisturiser is around £19.99. However, I saw this on Amazon for a bargain £17.99 and within seconds I had my Visa out!
The UK release of Olay Regenerist Daily 3 Point Treatment Cream was eagerly anticipated, since it had been hailed as 'super cream' in the States and there was a pre-order list where at least 1000 women had signed up to reserve the item at Boots. Boots had a fixed term exclusivity contract for this product, only the second time they had pre-released a skin care product. There was extensive tests done with regard to this creams performance in comparison with other leading brands, some of which cost in the region of £100. The high end brands included creams by company's such as Chanel, Christian Dior, Creme de la Mer, Elizabeth Arden, La Prairie amongst others, and the Olay cream out perfomed them all. Clinical test results showed that the 3 point treatment cream hydrated significantly better than the other creams tested. This product has also been awarded several accolades from prestigous beauty publications such as Marie Claire, Grazia, Good Housekeeping, amongst many others.
The key active ingredient in the cream are high levels of concentrated amino-peptides which have extraordinary anti-inflamatory effects deep within the skin, which promotes anti-ageing and tissue regeneration. The cream claims to give younger looking skin in many hard to treat areas such as the jaw line, neck and around the eyes.
The cream comes in a red 50ml jar with silver lid, and looks like a luxury product. The cream has a light refreshing smell, and is a off-white colour. The cream has a fairly light texture, not at all heavy, and is easily absorbed into the skin. There is no tell tale residue that you can associate with creams rather than lotions. It is also substantial enough to use as a night moisturiser. There is a 'correct' way to apply it to your skin, and the massage instructions are contained on the outer cardboard box so hang on to it if you want to follow this type of application. You don't need an to use awful amount, a pea sized amount is correct for my skin type. It skins easily into the skin and within a few minutes you are ready to apply your make up. It has also made the application of make up easier too, my foundation seeems to glide on, and a much nicer overall finish.
I have tried many creams over the years that have promised miracles, but non have delivered, until I tried Olay's 3 point treatment cream. This cream, I have been using it for about 4 weeks now, has made my skin less sensitive, much softer and smoother. My fine lines are less noticeable, and overall my complexion has a more healthy glow. I have also noticed that my skin does feel firmer and has more elasticity, which was my prime reason behind this purchase. I'm half way down my current jar, so hopefully it should last another 4 weeks.
Overall I would say this is a fantastic cream, well worth the price tag of £29.99, but even better value if you snap up the Amazon bargain price of £17.99. I'm definately going to be buying this again and again.
Get beautifully fresh, younger-looking skin around those hard-to-treat areas - the eyes, jaw line and neck. Contains Olay's most concentrated amino-peptide formula ever to treat the difficult areas that some products ignore, achieves dramatically younger-looking skin with the high levels of amino-peptide. Includes the magic ingredient... Matrixyl. To Use: Smooth evenly onto skin over face, jaw line and neck, once or twice a day.
