An essence is one of those skin care steps that seems frivolous and extra... until you actually start using one and then there’s no going back. The beauty of an essence is that they’re lightweight and hydrating, which not only makes them perfect for a range of skin types, but they also help with the absorption of any following products layered on top.
Traditionally they’ve been exclusively sold by pricier brands, but now there’s a budget offering from Olay that will satiate your skin’s thirst.
Introducing: Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Essence Water, an ultra-light supercharged formula that features a blend of anti-ageing ingredients including niacinamide for hydrated, primed, plump, and radiant skin.
Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this lightweight hydrator to the test.
Beauty Crew sent Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Essence Water to a panel of women aged 18 to 45 with tired and dull complexions, who were looking to brighten skin, smooth fine lines and help prevent further signs of ageing.
Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Essence Water.
The lightweight, hydrating finish: Our members were impressed by how hydrating the essence was whilst still being lightweight, easily absorbing into skin, and layering well under other skin care and makeup products.
The price point: Reviewers LOVED the super low price point. In fact, one of our members is a dedicated user of the exxy SK-II essence and was more than happy to swap this dupe into her routine saying, “amazing price, great bottle and lovely experience so far.”
The addition of niacinamide: Members who had never used niacinamide before said they found the ingredient to be effective at hydrating and toning skin, as well as helping to minimise the appearance of premature ageing.
