Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream Review

I started using Oil of Olay Anti Aging products for the purpose of review several weeks ago. I started with Olay Total Effects and was pleased with the product. I decided to go on to try the Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream, as well.

Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Moisturizer says that it provides intracellular hydration. That means it will provide volume and shape across the skin’s cells, lifting and micro sculpting. It will firm sagging prone areas, even the jaw line, smooth the skin’s surface, and restore elasticity. We’ll see.

One thing I didn’t do was wear this moisturizer during the daytime. I have oily skin, and this is a fairly heavy duty moisturizer. I didn’t think that it would sink into my skin enough to allow me to wear makeup over it during the day. I decided to put it on at night before I went to bed. I thought that would work out better, and I’d still get the same effect.

I like the way it works, so far. My skin is definitely firmer around the jaw line – always a problem when you’re aging. My skin is smooth. I don’t know about the elasticity, really. Again, how do you measure something like that? I guess I could pinch my own cheeks…or have someone else do it. ;)

The only thing I didn’t like about it was that I couldn’t wear it during the daytime, under makeup. I have a fairly oily t-zone, and while putting it on at night was no problem, when I tried the once to wear it during the day, it made my makeup slide. If you have oily skin at all, you probably should do the same. It’s a fairly heavy moisturizer, but it didn’t break me out at all. I have sensitive skin, so that’s a plus. It doesn’t say non comedogenic, but it obviously is. It doesn’t clog pores, and I was happy with the overall effects of this moisturizer.

Do you use Olay products? Let me know on twitter, Facebook, or leave me a comment here on the blog.
