    This cream is wonderful, it’s amazing how your skin changes for the better after long use of it. I’ve found that my face looks uplifted and also feels so wonderfully smooth and hydrated. Also a little does go a long way with this cream. for it’s price and what it does, it’s a bargain

    So, the number one thing I look for any skincare product is how well it sinks into your skin, I just can’t handle greasiness. Olay have got it spot on with regenerate because the light, creamy texture skins in straight away and it leaves your face feeling really fresh.

    I’ve been using the product every day for just over a week now, and I do have to say I have felt and seen a difference in my skin. I’ve noticed it does feel and look smoother, firmer and definitely more hydrated so hopefully this continues to improve with greater use!

    And I do have to mention, while it may just be my bowerbird- esque affinity towards shiny things , I love this packaging. It’s as sleek looking as what you’d expect from a $300 cream.

    I don’t think any anti aging cream is going to keep you in your 20’s forever, but when comparing this cream to other anti agers & moisturisers that I’ve tried, it comes out on top by a mile.

    I have always been a fan of Olay’s products, I am an avid user of Olay Total Effects, so I was so excited when I was asked to review Olay’s Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream for Primped.

    At first glace, you can tell from the packing that this is a luxurious product. The black and red box, the glass jar and the silver lid are a step up from the other plastic bottled products in the Olay range. The information on the box tells you everything you need to know – what it is, what it does and how it does it – all without the over-use of ‘made-up’ sounding words. Consumers are savvy these days, if they don’t understand what the cream does or if they feel that are being told lies or reading made-up words they will choose another brand, simple as that. What I like is the diagram on the back of the box which highlights that this is a cream which should be used at the ‘moisturise’ stage. It acutally illustrates the use of the cream which is something you rarely see. You wouldn’t believe how confusing some packages can be! I especially love the jar, just holding it makes you feel like you are about to pamper your skin and it’s nice to be able to see how much product you have left in the jar, rather than squeezing a tube knowing there is so much more in there or pumping a bottle that you know has product stuck in the corners. Personally I also prefer my cosmetic creams in a glass jar because glass tends to hold its temperature better than plastic, and when you’re spending that little bit more on a cream anything to keep it better longer is a plus.

    The cream looks rich and thick and smells divine. To be honest the fragrance reminds me a little of the L’Oreal Fructis hair range. It smells fresh and fruity without being overpowering, which makes me feel like it’s not going to sit heavily on my skin which is a very good thing. I was a little bit anxious that it was going to be too rich for my skin type (I’m 29 years old with combination skin), especially after I read it was Olay’s most concentrated cream, but I was surprised at how quickly it absorbed; my skin literally drank it up! It left my skin feeling extremely smooth without a trace of stickiness; exactly how my skin feels after I have used a primer. In fact after using the cream in the morning my makeup lasted just as long as if I was using a primer. After wearing it during the way I did find my skin was a little oiler than usual, especially around the nose area, which made think I could probably get away with using it just once a day. The box recommends using in the morning and at night, however I believe just using it the once, at night time, is best for my skin type.

    Although I have combination skin, I rarely wear use a cream at night as I find it leads to breakouts the next day. Surprisingly, I didn’t notice any extra oiliness or pimples in the morning which means people with my skin type can use it without the fear. I found my skin to be just as soft in the morning as it was the night before, and it even looked plumper than my usual ‘just-got-out-of-bed-squished’ skin. This is exactly that you want from and night cream and the reason why I will continue to use it as my night cream.

    The benefit of this cream is that it not only does what it says it will, but it is great value for money. I am not saying it’s cheap, but compared to some of the creams on the market it is more than reasonable. The amount of money I have spent on various creams is outrageous; they either make my skin too oily or don’t absorb properly or smell funny and usually end up at the back of my cupboard. I truly believe Olay have created a cream which can be used by anyone at any age; whether it be used to treat signs of ageing or to prevent the signs of aging; people with mature skin can use it twice a day, those with younger skin can use it just the once. And it really does last a long time, a little bit goes a long way. Compared to the amount of moisturiser I normally use, I had to halve it as it was just too much.

    Overall I have definitely seen improvement in my skin. It looks plumper, more supple and is overall smoother. I love the way it makes my skin feel right after I have applied it, I even made my boyfriend feel how smooth my face was. I am luck enough not to have any problems (yet) with fine lines, but I believe using this product will keep them at bay just that bit little longer, and I have already recommended it to my mum! I give Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream 4 out of 5 stars and it is a definite re-purchase!

    Thank you so much Primped for giving me the opportunity to review this product!

    Really liking this cream, have been using it for about 10 days now.
    The packaging is really nice and elegant, definitely looks expensive. I am also a fan of the red I think this is what gives it a elegant feel which is probably spot on for the demographic.
    The Texture of the cream is AMAZING. Feels very creamy and just melts into your skin. They have it right. No oily residue at all.
    Fragrance. One word… YUMMY. It is fruity and sweet. Reminds me of my Loreal hair shampoo I have used… but it is not overpowering, more invigorating!
    Impact on the skin is hard to judge as it has only been 10 days but my skin is looking great and feels great. I am sure it is doing its job!
    The only negative thing I have to say and I know its picky, is that this product is made in Thailand. This is the only thing, but other than that I really like it!

    This is a great cream that is rich yet not too greasy and quickly absorbed into skin. It does leave a slight sheen on skin that some may not like.
    It has a light fragrance and isn’t too overpowering.
    Packaging wise, this is a jar and so you dip your fingers into the jar to scoop out the product, I would have preferred a tube packaging so it would be more hygienic but that’s just my preference.
    Over a period of 3 weeks, it kept skin very hydrated and there was a slight improvement in skin texture in terms of softness and firmness.
    It was very handy for relieving dry patches on skin as well.
    Decently priced, I always look out for a jar of this when it goes on sale.

    Love this product! Fine lines have dissappeared and my skin is smooth, hydrated and clear. Also makes a great eye cream if you pack it on under your eyes before bed. Amazing quality considering the price.

    Olay Regenerist is an amazing cream. I love it. The texture is super creamy and feels lovely to the touch. It has a lovely scent to it. It’s such a rich, luxurious cream but even with the thickness it still absorbs amazingly well and amazingly quick. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy at all just completely hydrated, soft, smooth. I didn’t repurchase after finishing off my first tub, I’m not sure why. Maybe because I didn’t like the packaging….. I hate having to put something in amongst the lotion everyday to be able to use it. I hate the thought of it being unhygenic. I would much prefer to have this in a pump action tube.

    This product is awesome. It has a lovely gentle scent to it and goes on smoothly and nourishes and moisturises your skin. It is not greasy and definately leaves your skin feeling so soft all day long.

    I have been using this product for a couple of weeks and the difference is really noticable – friends have remarked how better my skin looks. it won’t make you young again but will assist in delaying the ageing process – I highly recommend it – very reasonable price for a product that actually delivers what it promises

    I find most anti-ageing creams are too heavy on my skin and cause me to break out, but not this one! I’ve been using a sample pot for a few weeks now and I am in love. It’s light, has a beautiful soft fragrance, and leaves my skin feel very smooth and hydrated. I’ve noticed a definite improvement in the texture of my skin, it seems more refined and firmer. A little goes a long way, making an already well-priced product even better value. I’ll be buying this one for sure!

    Was very impressed with the visible difference in overall skin tone using this cream. You don’t need much of the product and I only use it at night time. It absorbs in easily and left my skin feeling very smooth, supple and soft. Felt my skin was firmer too. Like the light pleasant fragrance.

    I love Olay products so I was really excited to try this product when it was first released . Since then I have purchased on numerous occasions . The cream is velvety in texture and absorbs well into my skin, leaving it well hydrated and soft and supple. It has a light pleasant fragrance which is not too overpowering . I didn’t notice too much of a firming effect but my skin is still quite supple so maybe I didn’t notice that effect so much . It’s a luxurious cream to use and I also love the distinctive red packaging. Overall I would purchase again .

    Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream sample comes in a small round plastic jar.
    The cream is a face moisturiser to be used morning and night.
    It nourishes and hydrates skin.
    It’s applied after cleansing and toning.
    The cream is white with a thick consistency.
    Texture is smooth and creamy.
    The fragrance is like a regular face cream aroma, lightly fragrant and soft.
    I use a small amount and smooth onto skin, it spreads and massages easily.
    It absorbs nicely into skin with gentle massage.
    It’s not greasy as long as it is not over applied.
    The cream softens and smooths skin and with it’s skin firming formula helps skin that is prone to sagging.
    It’s a nice moisturiser, keeps my skin nourished.

    A really good product that does what it says and is value for money.

  • Posted by: vivdob Enthusiast // Wed, 19 August 2015 12:57pm

    I love this product, I find that this is the only moisturiser that is completely absorbed by my skin and does not leave little flakes of product like other moisturisers seem to. A little also goes a long way. My skin feels so good after I have applied this. My husband has also commented that the fines lines seem to be less pronounced since I have been using it. I also have sensitive skin and eyes and this moisturiser does not affect me at all. I tried my Elizabeth Arden moisturiser the other day just to make sure and sure enough thereis no comparison. I am a convert.
