Anti-Aging Face Cream That Works (for Less!)


We’ve spent a lot of time outside this summer, and with the sun and elements, my face is prone to getting super dry. I’ve tried a lot of creams but they seems to dry too thin and don’t do too much for moisture let alone treat any upcoming lines/wrinkles that creep up on me, especially when you have kids for some reason! 🙂

Okay so fast forward – I tried out the new Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream. They’ve re-engineered their #1 selling anti-aging cream to be even better than before! Go team 🙂

The box said “Visible wrinkle results start day 1” so I wanted to put it to the test.

So day 1 – I applied the cream at night, slept with it on, woke up, washed my face and applied it again in the morning. Officially 24 hours later, I took another selfie and sure enough, I could tell that the bags under my eyes were a little smaller and tighter and some of my skin looked a little more smooth. Obviously after one day I wasn’t expecting drastic results, but any results at all in a day was a nice surprise! Plus, doesn’t my skin just look more moisturized in general?

No makeup, no filter. Just 24 hours difference with the Olay Regenerist cream.

Okay so I admit, I’m not new to the market of an anti-aging cream. Once I hit 30, I just knew it was time to start working on preserving my skin both for anti-aging reasons and also providing my skin the hydration that it needs. For as much time as we spend outdoors, I know it takes a toll on my skin and it is never too early to start taking care of it!

So Good Housekeeping Institute ran a study with 155,000 women, in which the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream outranked over 10 competitors, even one with a $440 price tag! Good Housekeeping gave the Olay cream their “Seal Star” for several outstanding features:

  1. Being a fast-acting formula.
  2. Providing long-lasting hydration.
  3. Having a lightweight texture.
  4. Including several firming and plumping ingredients.
Beautifully thick and creamy without being heavy

Good Housekeeping says that the Olay Regenerist cream, “demonstrated stellar hydration results at an unbeatable price.” And at a $26.99 price point for those kind of results, I’d have to agree.

I think it’s interesting that in the study, over 80% of participants preferred Olay to other brands – saying it felt “rich” without being too heavy. I could definitely see that, after trying it out. It’s a creamy, kind of whipped texture but it goes on so smooth and with a great-feeling coverage. Not too thin but not too thick.

The results for the hydrating face cream are as follows:

  • Visible wrinkle results start at day 1 (as I talked about above)
  • 1 day: Reduces the look of fine lines, plus boosts hydration and skin brightness 
  • 2 weeks: Skin is noticeably firmer and elasticity is improved 
  • 4 weeks: Reduces the look of up to 10 years of wrinkles

That means for me, that I even manage to go to Target without makeup on and not feel too self-conscious. I add a little self-tanner for some color but that’s it these days!

Seems like a good deal to me for $26.99, am I right? Grab your jar of this beautiful red wonder of a face cream here and let me know what your results look like in a day, two weeks or a month! 🙂 I’ll be waiting!

Til next time,
