This is one of Olay's anti-aging moisturisers where niacinamide is high up in the ingredients list. Niacinamide (or Vit C3) has many benefits for the skin including balancing sebum production, fades pigmentation, reducing the appearance of pores and wrinkles, anti-inflammatory/antioxidant and more. Olay claims that this moisturiser has an 'amino-peptide complex' but the only peptide (Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4) is listed at the bottom of the ingredients list, so I wouldn't buy it for that.
In terms of application, it feels slightly greasy at first but does absorb into my combination skin. It would suit normal-dry skin types. It doesn't have a strong smell even though it does have fragrance. It does work well as a moisturiser in preventing dryness.
I'm not very impressed that Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4 is the last ingredient for this product. A better bet would be the fragrance-free version which at least has the peptide close to the top and niacinamide is still in the same spot (4th ingredient).
Certainly adds softness to my skin - more like a super duper primer. Takes my skin from dehydrated, to look like a smoothly made crepe - soft, yummy and so moisture. It contains treatment ingredients designed to repair my damaged skin . My skin responds to this product, no overkill at all. Brilliant
To class Olay as an iconic brand would be an understatement. I fondly remember, as a kid, watching mom apply her ‘pink face stuff’ from her ‘special bottle’.
This would also be the first facial moisturizer I used and seeing as I am South African born, the brand Olay originated from South Africa, I have a special association to it.
Fast forward and the birth of the regenerist range and this remarkable cream.
I was gifted this by a fellow skin care junkie after being told “you have to try this!”
I’ll admit I was skeptical at first but was I proved wrong.
IT DOES WHAT IT CLAIMS!
After the first application my skin looked and felt smoother.
The overall texture of my skin held it’s smoothness and continues to improve.
It reduced the appearance of pores in my t zone as well as plumped the areas around my eyes.
What I really enjoyed was the claim of cell turnover. In short I would say it’s made my skin look ‘lively’
Im all about a healthy skin glow and this certainly provides quite a noticeable one.
Everything about this product from the eye catching red and silver jar, to its creamy texture, including the results it claims and provides is an experience.
Let’s not forget how affordable it is and is constantly on sale at a variety of retailers either individually or in a bundle.
Olay, YOU DID THAT!
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is truly one of the best moisturisers I have used, I recently tried using this cream in conjunction with the Miracle Boost Essence and I am pleasantly surprised with the difference in my skin in less than a month. I use this cream in the morning and have purchased the Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Night Cream which is more rich and nourishing than the day cream, and use this cream at night. Within a few weeks my skin feels soft, smooth and I'm noticing that the fine lines on cheeks certainly look less visible.
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream comes in a 50g jar, and the bright red packaging and silver lid make it look as lovely as it feels on my skin! The texture looks thick and heavy, however when I apply the cream to my face, neck and chest area, it absorbs instantly leaving no residue at all. The scent is pleasant but a little heavy for me, although nothing that irritates my skin. I can apply my makeup directly on top of this cream and my foundation and powder apply and stay on beautifully all day long, as this cream creates a smoothing, hydrating base.
My favourite things about this cream are that it has a beautiful texture that instantly hydrates and plumps up my skin, yet doesn't leave that heavy, rich feeling on my face that many anti-ageing creams do. I also really like that I saw almost immediate improvement in my skin after using it for a few days; my skin felt fabulously smooth and started to look brighter! In less than a month, I began to notice that some of the fine lines on my cheeks looked less visible and my skin was a lot more hydrated, as I used to have dry/dehydrated skin before using this face cream. It contains a great mix of nourishing ingredient such as olive oil and aloe, that help maintain my skin's moisture even after I wash my face.
What I dislike is that the cream comes in a jar, which I understand is not the most suitable packaging to keep a cream's active ingredients stable over time. Also it's not cheap, at almost $50 a jar there are certainly less expensive creams out there, however as I have been so pleased with my skin's improvement, I will be purchasing this cream and a few other products in the Olay Regenerist range.
I recommend this face cream for slightly more mature skin, probably anyone over 50 years of age, as it provides good anti-ageing benefits and does seem to reduce some of the signs of ageing. I will continue using this product on a daily basis to hopefully see long-term benefits and results, but so far so good!
Olay, a brand that has been around for years and, just like me, it has grown and changed with the times. I have probably been using Olay products for 50 years from the days of Oil of Olay when I was a teenager. I have tried a number of the Regenerist products just as I have used so many of the Olay products as they were introduced to the market.
The Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is packaged in a stylish, deep red jar with a silver screw top lid and contains 50g of product. The silky, off-white cream has a medium consistency and has a very pleasant fragrance.
I have combination skin so I’m always after a product that will hydrate and soften my skin. The cream is quite light and spreads smoothly and evenly over my face and neck. The cream absorbs well and leaves my skin feeling well moisturised with a nice healthy glow.
I prefer to use this type of moisturiser during the cooler months or on days when I don’t require a sunscreen because I use a tinted sunscreen with SPF50 during the warmer months. The Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream does its job as a moisturiser, leaving my skin plump, soft and hydrated, but I can’t really say it has substantially minimised the appearance of my fine lines and wrinkles. Perhaps this will be more noticeable over time.
I’ve been using the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream in conjunction with the Micro-Sculpting Night Cream and the Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence because I believe it’s better to use the matching products in a range to gain maximum benefits.
I’m happy to continue using this moisturiser in the hope of seeing further improvement to my skin, and I have no hesitation in recommending this product to anyone with mature, combination skin.
I am an Olay product user for many years and always have been impressed by the results. I tried the Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting cream as l have read so many positive reviews.
I was impressed to find the Micro-sculpting cream to be light in texture and soaks in easily, with no oily/shiny residue. I found it has hydrated my ageing skin and has diminished the look of lines and wrinkles. My skin no longer appears dull. I have confidence in my appearance due to the youthful effect the Micro-sculpting cream has produced over the weeks. Just recently l mentioned that l just turned 60years of age, l was not believed because my skin looks so good.
Amazing results for such a great price, no need to spend a fortune ladies, price does not always dictate results. I highly recommend this cream.
This is actually the perfect product for me. With dry skin and falling into the mature category, plus having a definite need for anti-ageing properties, this cream could have been designed with my qualities in mind! I haven’t used a lot of Olay products before so I was very happy when I was able to try this out, and I really did notice the improved brightness and smoother pores right from the beginning. My skin appeared smooth and slightly matte. This is a nourishing cream, thick enough to protect your skin but still light enough to apply easily and absorb well.
I have to say I love the packaging of this cream – the shiny silver lid and rich red of the jar have a “luxe” appearance and look really nice on my black vanity, although I would have preferred an applicator stick to apply the cream. It has a very subtle scent, almost a standard “soapy” scent which is not unpleasant.
Regenerist Micro-sculpting cream contains some great ingredients so you would expect a good outcome for your skin – advanced amino-peptides and fruit extracts to stimulate collagen and elastin in the skin’s surface, and the essential hyaluronic acid and glycerol for serious hydration. I have noticed my skin to feel both plump and hydrated whilst using this cream, which is another of its claims, but as yet I have not noticed any reduction in lines and wrinkles. I have more pronounced wrinkles in my upper lip area – we all have a problem area and this, for my past sins of smoking and insufficient sunscreen, is mine. Wrinkle reduction is an expected effect after 28 days, so I am some days short of this time-frame, but to be honest I have no great expectation that this will happen – I rather think that is beyond the power of most creams - although I’ll continue to look for any changes. Micro-sculpting cream has also been useful as a virtual primer under a BB cream because of its relatively thick texture. This is a definite bonus, because who doesn’t like a multi-tasking product!
Olay micro-sculpting cream is very effective as a hydrating and brightening day product, and if you can get that result for under $50, why pay for a high-priced cream, with no added benefit? I’m definitely happy to recommend it – and they also have a UV version so what’s not to like!
Olay Regenerist cream is one of those products I come back too after trying all the fancy shmancy expensive face creams that you get sucked into buying at department stores. This cream assist with my combination, ageing mid 30 skin. I feel my skin glows when I use this and I attribute that to the niacinamide. I live this in combination with the serum, another great product of this line. Hot tip- I layer up this face cream and sleep in it for a great alternative to a night sleep in mask. I wake up with skin that is supple, soft and luminous. Wait for a special and stock up.
I have been using the OLAY Regenerist mirco-scrupting cream during winter because it is super moisturising and firming. I have very dry skin during winter and this cream keeps my skin looking radiant and plumped throughout the day. The cream has very lightweight texture, non greasy on skin and does not cause pimple on my skin. I use this cream to prep my skin before applying makeup and the it does not mess up with the foundation. This cream is very affordable for it's quality!
The Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream comes in a 50g red jar. Although the jar is made of plastic, it looks and feel extremely calssy and is a good addition to my toiletries. The product itself is of a milky colour and of a very light creamy consistency. The scent is light and pleasant. The product feels quite rich, but smoothens easily across the skin and easily absorped. I used the product as both a day and night cream and as i have dry skin, it works beautifully.
After using, some of the benefits i have experienced included improved hydration of the skin, plumpness and prevention of new lines and wrinkles. I did not notice too much toning/firming effect but then i am only in my mid thirthies, and perhaps that isn't too much of an issue to start with.
I feel that this cream will be suitable for normal to dry skin type, probably for those who wants to tackle the early signs of aging.
This is my favourite moisturiser, for sure.
I don't know what it is about this cream but it makes my skin feel amazingly smooth and supple, but also helps speed along the healing process of blemishes. Its also nice and thick which is great for my dry skin. It is noticeably fragranced, but my skin doesn't seem to have a problem with that and I find it nice. The mini size jar is perfect for travel, as I have used it for several times in the past. 10/10 would recommend.
There are so many things to love about this product. It has replaced the luxury brand moisturiser which I had been using for the past 2 years. I am seeing better results with the Olay Regenerist Microsculpting cream than what I have seen with any other moisturiser I have used and the best part is that it is only 1/3 of the price that I was paying before.
I bought this on a whim as I had run out of my luxury brand product and being close to Christmas, I was a little strapped for cash. I figured that it would have to do for a few weeks. It took me only 1 week for me to see results that sold me on this product for life!
I love the glass jar packaging first of all. It looks and feels luxe, is environmentally friendly, as well as economical. I can use every last bit instead of the wastage that happens with other packaging.
The cream has a lightweight texture and feel. At first I was unsure whether it would offer suitable hydration for me but there is no issue there. It absorbs nicely, is non greasy, didn’t break out my extremely fussy skin and I love the way that my skin continues to feel hydrated and supple throughout the entire day.
The scent is light and pleasant, one of the best I have come across in a face cream to be honest. It is not overpowering or an offensively artificial scent, actually it is rather calming.
I find that I no longer need to use a makeup primer now that I am using this beautiful cream from Olay. My makeup glides on so smoothly over the top of this and actually seems to look and wear better with just the Regenerist as a base. Because this cream hydrated and smooths my skin, there is no need for further skin prep with a primer.
I wish that I had taken before and after photos because the difference that I am seeing in my complexion and skin tone is nothing short of a miracle. I have had so many people compliment my skin and ask what skincare I use.
I am in my mid 30s and have begun to develops deep 11 lines in my forehead, pronounced nasolabial folds, fine lines around my mouth and eyes, as well as slightly sagging skin/ loss of elasticity resulting in slightly hooded eyes and jowls/ slight turkey neck.
I would say that within a week I noticed my skin tone had become more even and that the fine lines around my eyes and mouth were greatly reduced. I also noticed that my skin felt more firm, plump and taut. My complexion no longer looked as dull and tired, instead it looked rested and radiant (so I have been told).
Within 3 weeks of regular daily use, I began to see a reduction in my nasolabial folds. I can only put this down to the fact that my skin is much firmer and supple now. The fine lines seem to be ironing out and my face feels really nice and lifted.
I have only been using it for about a month now and as soon as I finish my expensive night cream, I will switch to Olay for night time as well.
I wish I had began using this earlier as I would have saved a lot of money and would have better skin.
I recommend this to everyone now. Try it! You can pick it up on sale quite often and after a week you should see results that will convince you that it’s the best product for firming and lifting the skin. I’ve tried so many expensive creams, lotions, treatments, serums and masks. I have found nothing else that works better than this.
I’d rate it 10 stars if I could.
The Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is actually a new use product for me. I've actually been a huge fan of Olay's Regenerist Revitalising Hydration Cream for quite some time now and absolutely love it. My skin is a battle of dry spots but oily around the nose area and this nice balance has helped with that so much just hydrating my skin to help the around the chin and outer cheek areas where I've always struggled with dry spots but doesn't make my more around the nose area more oily its actuallu balanced it out if not made that area more smooth less oily without causing any blackheads or build up. As for the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream like I said I'm pretty new to the product but even at 30 yrs old the skin isn't what it was and so the idea of a Micro-Sculping Cream not just for wrinkles sold me on trying it out to get a more youthful glow and look back to my skin. So far I haven't had any break outs or pore clogging from this product like alot of other brands but Olay is definitely a brand I trust and I'm hoping for the results it claims. I actually am optimistic Olay is a brand i definitely TRUST, a bit pricing for a mom of 3 working a factory job but most definitely worth spending a little extra on a brand I've only seen awesome results from instead of wasting more searching for something cheaper yet gives results I know as far as my experience Olay delivers.
I absolutely love this cream. Over the last 20 years I have searched Lon and hard for a cream that moisturises, enriched and leaves the skin glowing. And guess what? I found it with Olay microsculpting cream. I am certainly one happy 34 year old gal! This is so amazing !!
Lovely creamy product for any skin type.
I’m hooked to this product after trialling the mini sample last month.
The moisturiser glides easily, moisturise well and doesn’t make me oily. I can feel my face is smooth and nice.
The fragrance is not too strong which is good. If they can get rid of the fragrance completely, they will make this product amazingly unbeaten.
This is now my go to product in the morning.
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream leaves skin smooth soft and comfortable without the greasy oily feeling or residue. I love that it keeps my aging skin supple as it did when I started using it/ seems to get better as I age and is well priced in the market. Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is the product I use religiously
You don't need to pay big $$$ for a good moisturiser which is why I like Olay products. I found this one to be deeply hydrating and revitalising, great for day or night. My dry skin has greatly benefited by using it and feels more supple and youthful. I'd recommend it for sure.
Attractive jar for a start. I need only a small amount and find that fantastic for budgeting folk like me. It moisturizes effectivly and lasts over 7 hours without blocking the skins ability to breathe. Lightly fragranced with a very attractive scent, I am sold. Great for maturing skin like mine.
The price tag for this cream is worth it! Been using it for couple of months and I feel my skin had gotten tighter. I'm in my mid 20's. It's not greasy. Its light weight and really does my skin a lot of good. The jar is cute and can carry anywhere. Great for daily moisturising and I have used it at night as well. Once you try it you will never go back!
I am in my 50's and have been using Olay since I was a teenager. I've just moved from the basic Olay Moisturiser to Regenerist and absolutely love it. My skin looks and feels so soft and smooth. i have noticed a difference in only two weeks. The texture is not too thick or oily. it absorbs quickly and a small amount goes far. Fantastic product and at a fantastic price.
