The terms, Anti-aging, age reversal, look younger etc.. does arouse its due share of curiosity in us 🙂 After all, all of us aspire to look younger and beautiful. As in, a random comment, “Oh! you look much younger your age” … is perceived as a compliment.
The giant in this sector of beauty market is Olay and I am here to review one of its recently launched products 🙂
The Look: Very creamy, thick emulsion, which is cream in color as well. The appearance from outside is as if the content is swirls of cream and white mousse.
The texture: Very light and moderately moisturizing. It should suit all skin types, my skin is combination to oily , but it didn’t make my skin feel greasy or break me out. I guess, in hot humid weather it might feel greasy or oily. So, people with oily skin should use it with care in summers.
The aroma: Nice, mild , Olay kind of 🙂
My thoughts : I have been using for the past twelve days, twice daily, once in the morning and at night. According to me it is moisturizing enough and gets absorbed into the skin effortlessly, to transform into a subtle glow. It gives a mild dewy look, which I like. It did not break me out or make me feel greasy.
It claims to work on seven signs of ageing like fine lines, uneven tone, age spots, uneven texture, dryness, dullness and pores. To scale it on the previous parameters, it relieves dryness, that is, it keeps the skin hydrated and also addresses dullness to a great extent. It moderately evens out the skin tone too. But, on age spots it didn’t have any effect. I have two very small age spots on my face, and I religiously monitored its effect on them, to find that they didn’t lighten. I don’t have any wrinkles, so its difficult to comment on this aspect.
Summary: So, overall a good cream which can be used as a day as well as night cream. It does keep the skin hydrated without making it greasy, but still, people with oily skin should use it with care. It also has SPF 15, which is a good aspect as well. The cons, it did not lighten age spots at all, but may be with continuous usage for about a month or two, they might lighten.
Also, any skincare item takes at least a month to show its effect, but I had to review it within a very short span. Hence, I may not be able to justify the product.
Price: INR 369 for 20gm
