When it comes to selecting a serum that you can count on to have your skin’s best interests and glow goals at heart, it can be hard to strike the right balance between active ingredients. Too much can freak out skin and not enough will leave you with less than impressive results.
Olay has managed to create a range of serums — super serums in fact — that are gentle enough for every day (formulated without parabens, sulphates, phthalates, mineral oils, and petrolatum/no nasties), while still packing enough of a punch for you to enjoy your best skin without a worry in the world.
Introducing: Olay Niacinamide + Vitamin C Super Serum; an antioxidant-rich skin-brightening formula that targets uneven skin tone, dark spots and scars, Olay Luminous Niacinamide Super Serum; a skin-strengthening serum that improves texture, reduces sebum/oil production to minimise the risk of acne, Olay Niacinamide + Hyaluronic Super Serum; a hydrating and moisturising pick that plumps skin, and Olay Luminous Niacinamide + Cica Super Serum; a healing and soothing serum with anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this range of daily serums to the test.
Beauty Crew sent the Olay Super Serums to a panel of women aged 22 to 45. Those with dull skin and uneven skin tone received Olay Niacinamide + Vitamin C Super Serum; members with dark spots and tired looking skin received Olay Luminous Niacinamide Super Serum; dryness and dehydrated skin received Olay Niacinamide + Hyaluronic Super Serum; and Olay Luminous Niacinamide + Cica Super Serum was sent to those with redness and inflamed skin.
Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Olay Luminous Serum Range.
They loved how nourishing the serum was, but it was the added boost of vitamin C that had their skin plump, glowing and revitalised after use.
Dark spots be gone! Our members loved the clarifying and brightening effects of the serum, with a number of reviewers saying they noticed a distinct difference in the overall tone of their skin.
Our members revelled in their plump, dewy, hydrated complexions after adding this little guy to their skin care routine. Packed full of niacinamide and hyaluronic acid, their skin was well moisturised after application.
Those of our members with sensitive skin really benefited from the cica-infused formula which helped to quell redness and irritation whilst ensuring skin was moisturised and nourished.
