This barrier-strengthening skin pairing is the answer to temperamental skin

Here’s what our Review Crew® had to say about the antioxidant-rich formulas

The product

As far as good skin goes, there’s nothing more important than skin barrier maintenance.

You can use all the active ingredients in the world, but if you’re not actively caring for your barrier and reinforcing barrier function, your skin is going to throw a tantrum. 

Olay Regenerist Antioxidant Moisturiser and Olay Regenerist Antioxidant Serum temper your skin’s bad behaviour with the help of vitamins B3, C and E. Together these antioxidants work to strengthen barrier function, reduce the effects of environmental aggressors (AKA premature ageing), and reinforce barrier protection by utilising the skin’s natural oils. 

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this skin barrier-strengthening moisturiser and serum pairing.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Olay Regenerist Antioxidant Moisturiser and Olay Regenerist Antioxidant Serum to a panel of women aged 25 to 35, with a variety of skin types, and a shared experience of dry, dull, and rough skin texture. 

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Olay Regenerist Antioxidant Moisturiser and Olay Regenerist Antioxidant Serum.

The way they brightened dullness: Our members were very pleased with the boost of brightness, radiance and glow they experienced after introducing the moisturiser and serum into their routines.

They left their skin feeling soft and smooth: Reviewers said their skin was smooth and soft after application, and this effect only improved with time and continued use of the products. 

Their skin was less temperamental: Thanks to the barrier-strengthening formulas, our members said their skin was less temperamental than usual. Their skin felt more balanced and they experienced less breakouts as well as a reduction in extreme oiliness or dryness (depending on their skin type).

The verdict

“I have never used olay before and was pleasantly surprised by how much I ended up loving this moisturiser. Winter hasn't been kind to my skin and this cream gives my skin some much needed TLC. The smell is really nice and it doesn't make my skin oily or breakout - I've actually had beautifully clear skin the entire time I've been using it. Hubby also started complaining about having dry skin in winter and has been loving his skin since stealing mine - we will definitely be repurchasing! I can highly recommend this as a good staple moisturiser that won't break the bank, but will give you beautiful nourished skin.”

“Wow wow wow! Olay you blew me away with this serum! I have tried this serum morning and night for over a week now and I find myself still reaching for it, even over my other beloved serums! I love how smooth and silky this serum made my skin feel. But what’s even better is how lightweight and easily it goes onto the skin. The scent of this product is so light and pleasant, and it sits wonderfully under my SPF products and daily makeup. I have never used a dropper/applicator like this one and was unsure about it at first. After a few uses I’ve decided that I enjoy the quick and easy application process and love how the bottle itself fits on my skincare shelf! If you are apprehensive about incorporating a vitamin C product into your routine (like I was) look no further! A perfect starting place and great addition to your skincare family.”

“I have been using this for about 2 weeks now and wow! What a difference it has done to my skin. I always apply my moisturiser directly after cleansing my face before applying any other product. This serum really did brighten my skin giving it life! My skin is less reactive and oily and I have much clearer skin now that I have been using it. It is soft and cushiony, with a nice light scent. It is so easy to massage into the skin, I never feel like I'm pulling or dragging my skin like I have experienced with other moisturisers.”
