Olay Regenerist Daily Regenerating Cream Wash

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Olay Regenerist Daily Regenerating Cream Wash. This is an exfoliating cream wash which claims to have advanced anti-ageing benefits, and it can be used once or twice daily.

I’ve been using this face wash for a few weeks now, and I think it’s really nice! It exfoliates my skin beautifully, but it feels gentle at the same time. Great stuff! It also reminds me very much of the old Olay Total Effects Cream Wash (unfortunately discontinued).

Olay Regenerist Daily Regenerating Cream Wash has been renamed (likely reformulated as well); it’s now called Olay Regenerist Skin Perfecting Cleanser. It’s available as 150ml, and I paid £3 (special offer, usually it’s about £6).

Olay Essentials Glow Perfectors BB Cream Light

Hi there! Today’s post is about the facial moisturiser that I’ve been using for almost 3 weeks now – Olay Essentials Glow Perfectors BB Cream. I bought the shade “Light“. This product is a moisturising cream mixed with a Max Factor Foundation. It contains niacinamide, vitamins B and E, pro-vitamin B5, as well as SPF 15.

This moisturiser promises 24-hour hydration and an even complexion for a perfect everyday look. Alrighty… read on if you’d like to know if this product is any good.

I like this product, but I don’t love it. First of all, the shade light is way too dark for pale girls. I have to mix it with my pale winter foundation (Max Factor Pan Stik 12 True Beige) because it looks grotesque if I use it with my regular foundation (Max Factor Pan Stik 25 Fair). When blended with my pale winter foundation, it does look good.

I’m happy to report that this BB Cream is very hydrating, and that it plays well with all the makeup products I apply on top of it. So based on this, I have no reason to complain. However, whilst I will finish this product for sure, I won’t repurchase it because it just isn’t the most suitable moisturiser for me.

If you’re interested, Olay Essentials Glow Perfectors BB Cream is available as 50ml. I paid £3.50 (clearance).

Olay Anti-Wrinkle Instant Hydration Eye Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about my current eye cream – Olay Anti-Wrinkle Instant Hydration Eye Cream. This product promises deep hydration to help reduce the signs of ageing around the eye area for fresher, brighter, and more healthy looking skin.

I’ve been using this eye cream twice a day for a month now, and I’ve formed an opinion. So read on and I’ll tell you if this eye cream is any good. 🙂

This fragrance-free eye cream has a gel-like texture that feels light and refreshing when it’s applied to the eye area. It hydrates the skin around my eyes nicely, and it sits well under make-up. And I’m satisfied that my eye area looks fresher and brighter.

I’m really enjoying this eye cream because it does what it promises. I think it’s in my all-time top 5! So yes, I would recommend it!

Olay Anti-Wrinkle Instant Hydration Eye Cream seems to have been discontinued recently. However, it’s available online and in bargain stores. I was able to pick up the 15ml eye cream for £1.99 which is great value! 🙂

Olay Hydration & Cleansing 2 In 1 Cleanser & Moisturiser Duo

Hi there! Today’s product is about Olay’s Hydration & Cleansing 2 In 1 Cleanser & Moisturiser Duo with aloe vera and cucumber extracts.

This product promises effective cleansing by removing make-up and impurities. In addition, it claims to hydrate the skin.

How does it work? You can use the cleanser with a cotton wool pad, or you can massage it into your skin and then “polish it off” with a damp muslin cloth.

Apparently you can also use it as a moisturiser (it says so on the back).

So how’s the product? I like it. It dissolves and removes my make-up with ease. Whilst I’m not using this product as a moisturiser, I can feel that it’s hydrating, and I believe it has helped me stay on top of my dry patches this winter.

In summary, I think this cleanser is really nice. I would recommend it to everyone with normal to dry and / or sensitive skin.

Olay’s Hydration & Cleansing 2 In 1 Cleanser & Moisturiser Duo
is exclusive to Superdrug. The 200ml bottle is £2.99. I paid £1.48 (better than half price offer).

100% Awesome – Olay Total Effects 7 In 1 Anti-Ageing Day Moisturiser

Hi there! Today’s post is about Olay’s Total Effects 7 In 1 Anti-Ageing Day Moisturiser. In a nutshell, this product promises younger and healthier looking skin in 4 weeks.

Well, the product promises basically everything you’d want an anti-ageing product to take care of, but I won’t list everything because I don’t want to type 5,000 words. In addition, I’m reviewing the product anyway, so I’ll tell you what’s important. 🙂
Olay Total Effects
I think this moisturiser is awesome – and here’s why. The pump bottle dispenses the perfect amount of product. One pump gives me enough moisturiser for my face and my neck. Brilliant!

The moisturiser feels great on my skin – and it makes my skin feel great. It might be a bit too rich for women with oily skin, but my dry and moody skin loves this product. My skin has been looking healthier and happier for a few weeks now, and I haven’t had any visible dry patches for over a month. I’ve also noticed that my pores are less visible. Awesome!

Whilst this moisturiser is rather rich and nourishing, it’s not greasy at all, and it sits very well under my make-up. And I’m very happy about this because the office air con has been running in desert heat mode for about 6 weeks now…

To sum it up… Olay’s Total Effects 7 In 1 Anti-Ageing Day Moisturiser is fantastic. I love the product, and I know I’ll buy it again. And I would recommend this product to everyone! This 50ml moisturiser is usually £14.99. I paid £2.99 (Bargain Buys).

Olay Essentials Complete Care Plus Multiradiance Moisturising Lotion

Hi there! Today’s post is about the moisturiser that I’ve been using since the end of July – Olay Essentials Complete Care Multiradiance Moisturising Lotion.

This product contains vitamins B3, E and pro-vitamin B5, and it promises 24-hour hydration, protection from sun exposure (SPF 15) and more radiant looking skin.
Olay Essentials Multi Radiance Cream
I’ve been using this moisturiser for quite some time now, and I think it’s awesome! It makes my skin feel soft and well hydrated, and it’s a perfect base for make-up. I also love the light-reflecting particles in this moisturiser because they really give my skin a healthy looking glow! Another thing I love about this moisturier is its subtle & sunny mandarin fragrance – to me it smells like a sunrise in Palermo.

I would recommend this moisturiser to everyone! Olay Essentials Complete Care Multiradiance Moisturising Lotion is available as 75ml for £10. I paid £4.50 (better than half price offer, Asda).

Beauty Haul! 20+ New Products – Olay, Ekél, Scinic, Daily Defense, Sukin, Balance, Rimmel, Primark, Sinful Colors, Orly & Max Factor

Hi there! Today’s post is about the beauty, skin care & toiletries I bought in August. Well, this is most of what I bought. There were a few purchases in between, but these were 1 or 2 items only each time, and I already stashed those products away…

Anyway, before I tell you what I bought, I’d like to remind you that I’m still doing 3 out / 1 in which means that I can buy 1 item (make-up, skin care, shower stuff, etc.) for every 3 items that I finish. I’m committed to the 3 out / 1 in policy. However, this time I had to ‘borrow’ from future empties. The offers were just too good! OK, now onto the goodies!

Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting UV Cream – finally, it is mine! This is an import from the US. Olay doesn’t sell this moisturiser in the UK. I’ve read great things about it, and I didn’t have to think twice when I found it for £12.99.

Ekél Natural Clean Peeling Gel Apple & Rice Bran – I bought the Grape version of this Peeling Gel a few weeks ago – and I fell in love with it. So I bought the apple and rice bran versions as well. They were £4.99 each.

Scinic Aqua All In One Ampoule – I’m only 50% sure of what this product is supposed to do. Yeah, I know what ‘all in one’ means, but still… anyway, the reason I bought this was because it just looked so cool. I’ll try to review this one asap. I paid £9.99.

Sukin Facial Recovery Serum – I bought this serum because it was £4.99 only. It’s usually just under £14, so this one was a total bargain.

Balance Active Formula Instant Effect Wrinkle Filler & Dragon’s Blood Eye Lift Balm – I’ve never heard of this brand, but the wrinkle filler was £2.99, and the eye lift serum was £1.99. I can’t wait to test these products!

Daily Defense Argan Oil 3-Minute Leave-In Treatment – So far I’ve been impressed with Daily Defense’s hair products. And that’s why I bought this deep conditioner. It was £1.99 only!

More Daily Defense! I bought the Daily Defense Macadamia Oil Shampoo & Conditioner combo and a massive 946ml Argan Oil Body Wash (which will probably take me a year to finish). These 3 products were 99p each!

I also bought 2 more Max Factor Pan Stiks. The shade 12 True Beige is the perfect shade for me, but I only use it as my winter foundation because it’s not easy to find anymore. The Pan Stiks were 2 for £5.99. I also bought 2 clear Orly polishes for 99p each. And I bought another Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow nail polish for 75p. I already have one bottle of this polish, but love these bubblegum purple nail colours so much!

I went to Primark and Poundland again. I picked up 2 cheap white polishes (Primark own brand, 60p each), and 5 Sinful Colors nail polishes (Poundland, £1 each).

This is (most of) the stuff I bought in August. I didn’t need any of these products, but I was lured in again… Have you tried any of these products? If so, how did / do you like them? Or would you like to try any of these products? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Olay Regenerist Luminous Skin Tone Perfecting Cream Moisturiser

Hi there! Today’s post is about Olay’s Regenerist Luminous Skin Tone Perfecting Cream Moisturiser which I’ve been using since early March. In summary, this face cream promises to brighten, exfoliate and smooth skin, to reduce the appearance of dark spots over time, and to regenerate the skin’s appearance for a healthy and luminous complexion. In addition, this face cream promises younger looking skin in two weeks! Now let me tell you more…

First of all, this cream doesn’t contain sunscreen, so I’m using it as a night cream only. And guess what, it’s a great night cream! I don’t think I look any younger than a month ago. However, for the past couple of weeks I’ve woken up to a fresh and well-rested looking face, which is as amazing as it is unusual because even though I have to get up at 5:30 every weekday now, I never go to bed before midnight…

So based on my experience I’m satisfied that this Olay moisturiser does quite a lot! Yes, it exfoliates, and it does make my skin feel smooth. And I have no doubt that it somehow regenerates my skin’s appearance because my skin does look fantastic now! Thank you, Olay!

I would definitely recommend Olay’s Regenerist Luminous Skin Tone Perfecting Cream Moisturiser. It’s £29.99 for 50ml, so it’s one of Olay’s most expensive products. However, I only paid £14.99 (half price offer). So don’t forget to compare prices! Oh, and I’ve already bought a back-up which, by the way, was only £9.99.

Have you tried this product? If so, what do you think? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

This face wash contains aloe vera and cucumber extracts which promise to cleanse, purify and invigorate skin. At the same time the product claims to be non-drying.

Is this face wash any good? Yes, it is! I think this face wash is a wonderful facial cleanser. It’s effective, but it’s not harsh or drying at all. In addition, this face wash is fantastic if you use it with a konjac sponge.

Olay’s Hydration Balancing + Purifying Cleansing 2 In 1 Refreshing Face Wash is exclusive to Superdrug. It’s £2.99 for a 150ml tube. However, I only paid £1.45 (half price offer), so keep your eyes peeled for special offers to make the pennies go further. 🙂

Olay Anti-Wrinkle Facial Cleansing Products – Cleansing Milk, Face Wash & Toner

Hi there! A few weeks ago I bought a few new Olay products – they were on a better than half price offer (£2.95 each instead of £5.99 each), so I had to have them. Now meet Olay Anti-Wrinkle Cleansing Milk, Olay Anti-Wrinkle Face Wash and Olay Anti-Wrinkle Toner.

Olay’s Ani-Wrinkle cleansing products promise…
– to help reduce the appearance of fine lines,
– to improve dull skin,
– to make skin look and feel smoother,
– to maintain skin suppleness,
– to promote the renewal of skin cells,
– and to “fight signs of ageing as you cleanse” (that’s what it says on the back of these three products).

I’ve now used these products for three weeks. And if you read on, I’ll tell you what I think of Olay’s Anti-Wrinkle cleansing products.
olay-anti-wrinkle-cleansing
I think the cleansing milk is quite effective. It removes my make-up very well, and it doesn’t cause any problems when I use it to remove my eye make-up. I think this cleansing milk makes my skin feel and look smooth and supple. Nice!

I really like the face wash. It reminds me very much of Olay’s Total Effects Face Wash – the texture and the fragrance are the same! I think this face wash makes my skin feel great. It’s creamy and it exfoliates my skin gently. It’s perfect for dry skin and for everyday use.

The toner is very nice too. It removes make-up and cleanser residue without problems, and it makes my skin feel clean and refreshed. Whilst I prefer the fragrance of Olay’s blue toner, I can’t find any issue with this toner.

I don’t think that any of these products have made a difference to my fine lines. But I really enjoy using these cleansing products because they make my skin feel great. In addition, I’m 35, so I can accept that the fine lines aren’t going away. 🙂

Olay’s Anti-Wrinkle cleansing products are available for £5.99 each. The toner and the cleansing milk are 200ml, the face wash is 150ml.
