I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE RETINOL and my skin is no stranger to it! I love it so much, I think it is truly my favourite ingredient, so I was very excited to have an opportunity to trial this product!
The mask is drenched in a milky retinol serum, which I then unfolded to stretch over my face. The fit wasn't perfect, however I made it work.. and with so many face shapes to cater too, how can I expect it to be? It sat comfortably for the 15 minutes and didn't budge whilst I carried about getting ready for bed.
I removed it and my face was still wet with serum. I worked some of the left over serum into my face and let the retinol work its magic before finishing with a moisturiser and settling in for bed.
The next morning I woke up to find my skin was smooth and supple. I love seeing the fine lines decrease and my skin texture more refined after a retinol treatment and I found this one to work in that regard. My skin could probably handle a stronger dosage, so for that reason, I feel like my skin may not have reaped the full benefits and it is quite used to regular strong retinol.
Overall I would say this is great for beginners looking for more affordable ways to get a weekly retinol treatment in!
thanks BC And Olay! :)
First up the packaging looks great! It's got a nice look and feel about it.
Upon opening the packaging, I noticed the mask to be drenched in in a milky formula which once you open up and apply to your face feels very hydrating and cooling. The mask was easier to stretch over my face, and it sat comfortably for the 15 minutes while it did it's thang! The mask itself feels of high quality.
I used this just before bed so I could leave the residue from the mask on my skin to extend the wear of the product. After I removed the mask, I did remove some of thr excess product as I find with most sheet masks it's too much and doesn't absorb. I pat dry my face and then gently blended the rest of the product into my skin. I then followed with my moisturier and night cream.
The next morning my skin felt very soft ,nourished and dewy. It very much had a glow about it. Going between seasons my skin can often be dry pending the weather, but this is exactly what it needed.
This is a mask I recommend and a mask I would consider for future purchase.
I received this to try and review. I enjoyed using it. The sheet mask was a good thickness, not too much but sat on my face nicely and east to apply. I think retinol in a mask is hard to assess as it takes usage over a love time to see if it is working. However, I found my skin was hydrated and glowy after use. The fragrance was nice and not too much and I did not have any negative reaction.
I also worry about the impact of sheet masks due to wastage, I personally would just use one that comes in a tub but was grateful to try this.
Good but be cautious with retinol
Great product and nice texture however as other reviews state, retinol needs to be taken slowly and is hard to patch test.
When I first tried this product I was an avid user of retinol already so I knew I was able to use this product. It applied well onto my face and the contouring was good on the skin unlike how other sheet masks go.
The texture was nice and left it on for 10 minutes and was pleasantly surprised how soft my skin felt.
One other downfall from the product is sheet masks not being very sustainable and seeing as this is something that most consumers now have at the forefront of their mind when purchasing, it will be interesting where sheet masks will go in the future.
Retinol is a marathon not a sprint
This is a nice thick sheet mask, not tissue thin like some masks, and saturated in serum, so there is plenty to spread down the neck and on to the décolletage. It had a subtle fresh scent and felt very cooling & nourishing on the skin. It contains no sulphates, parabens, phthalates, petrolatum, or mineral oils. T
he mask its self is smaller than other face masks, which initially I appreciated as most sheet masks are too big for my face. However the eye holes of this mask are exceptionally small, and while wearing I constantly felt it was moving over or too close to my eyes, making it uncomfortable, and I don’t like the idea of retinol of the delicate eye area.
I applied the mask on freshly cleansed skin. It felt soothed and hydrated after removing it. Unfortunately the serum dried to leave a white residue on my face and when I applied product over the top it pilled and created a big flakey mess on my face, which wasn’t a pleasant experience.
Retinol is a marathon, not a sprint -
As in it takes months of regular use to see the benefits. So I’m unsure a 20 minute occasional mask can claim to produce the amazing benefits of retinol. However it was a nice nourishing hydrating mask.
A new addition to my mask collection
I really loved this mask!
The combo of retinol and niacinamide did make me a little nervous but it felt super gentle and nourishing. It did not feel harsh or super strong at all.
The mask itself felt thicker then most with the serum a nice thick milky texture. There was also extra serum in the packet which I always love because I can massage it onto my neck and décolletage.
I used it before bed and then applied my face oil and moisturiser. The next day my skin looked softer and that little bit more lush. Definitely one mask I’ll put it into my rotation.
Hydrates and plumps skin
I loved this sheet mask, the addition of retinol firms and plumps my skin and it was so easy to use. I used this before bed and after opening the packet attached the mask to my face, it’s a nice quality mask that fit well and was loaded with product, heaps of serum, however it made no mess. It didn’t have a lot of scent and contains no parabens or sulphites so it’s great for those like me with sensitive skin. I left the mask on for 15 minutes then easily removed it and just left the serum on overnight. In the morning my skin looked plumper and fresher and fine lines were diminished, my skin also looked brighter and not as tired. I love olay products and this sheet mask was a winner for me and I would recommend it
Lovely gentle sheet mask
I regularly use sheet masks and my skin is accustomed to using retinol.
This Olay sheet mask felt nice and cooling and fit my face well. It was well covered in serum and felt very “juicy”.
There was a slight scent that was not an issue. I kept the mask on for 15 minutes and then when the mask was removed there was heaps of product left over so I rubbed it into my face chest and hands.
My face felt well hydrated and had a dewy appearance afterwards. I would use this mask again. I have noticed it is often on sale at the supermarkets and Priceline so it would be well worth it when half price.
Pampering but pricey
Now I love using sheet masks, they feel so pampering and this was no different. The mask is saturated with product so you definetly get good value there. There is heaps of product/serum left in the packet which can be used alone and after the 15 minutes there is still alot of serum on the face. The frangrance is subtle and not overpowering, I didn’t mind it. The mask adheres well to the skin and my skin felt so hydrated after using the mask and the next morning. As much as I love the mask, I feel like it’s a little pricey for something you only use once and you would have to purchase multiple for regular use to be able to see results as you don’t get long lasting results from a single use. I overall enjoyed it and would purchase if it was on sale.
Nice but wouldn't repurchase.
I was excited to try the Olay Regenerist Niacinamide + Retinol24 Sheet Mask as I had previously used the serum and eye cream and had positive results. I enjoyed trying out the mask however it is probably not something that I would purchase in the future. I found that the mask sat uncomfortably on my face and was continuously sliding about. The thing that I dislike most about the face mask is the wastage creating from using a sheet mask when I am able to use the serum to achieve the same results. I didn't find the fragrance overpowering which is a massive plus for me as heavily fragranced items tend to give me a headache. It's hard to know whether the mask had the intended effects as I would need to use it for an extended period of time to achieve any sort of result. This would be a great product for someone who is new to using retinol.
This is a nice mask which leaves your face feeling smooth and bright. My fine lines did appear less visible as a short-term effect. The mask is an odd fit, but I have trouble getting many sheet masks to fit perfectly so I expected that. There is a generous amount of serum included, so any leftover serum can be applied later. My face did feel a bit dry after I had removed the mask and the serum had dried, so I would recommend following with a moisturiser, and this also helps lock in the serum itself.
On my face the product on the mask stung a little (I have very sensitive skin, the full mask didn’t fit across my face even when I tried to stretch it out, it was still too small so was a bit bummed out about that, I had to keep readjusting it, the product on the mask was a bit messy, it was absolutely drenched in product,
The after results:
My skin looked less red and very shiny, the slight sting I had when I wore the mask was well worth the end result, my daughter said my face had a really nice glow to it and looked like I really took care of my skin, just from one face mask!
I do take quite good care of my skin anyway but to receive the results I did after just one use, I am astounded! Plus it smelt really nice.
I will definitely be buying this sheet mask again. What an amazing product!
Thank you beautycrew!!
Beautiful Sheet Mask
I will start by saying that retinol and niacinamide are two of my favourite ingredients, so I found this to be a really beautiful product, with a great formula.
I enjoy using sheets masks as a little treat, usually at the end of a busy week. The sheet mask itself felt luxurious as it was as drenched in serum but as with many sheet masks, it was awkwardly shaped and did not fit my face properly.
I left the mask on for about 20 minutes and then gently pressed the remaining serum into my face and neck. I always use the excess serum from the pack for my neck and chest. Afterwards, my skin looked plump and refreshed.
The price point for this product is quite standard but being sold in pharmacies and supermarkets, can always be purchased on sale.
Beautiful serum, difficult sheet mask
- the serum itself was really lush and viscous. Felt like it was very nourishing and moisturizing.
- lots of serum provided in packet and absorbed in to sheet mask
- could use excess serum for neck and decolletage
- face after wearing it for 25 mins still had plenty of serum left behind to rub in
- face felt really plump and smooth afterwards. Easy to blend moisturizer over the top
- in the morning my face still felt very nourished and moisturised
- no sensitivity to the retinol whatsoever
- unfortunately I really did not like the sheet mask itself. I've used a tonne of sheet masks before and this was the most awkward fitting one I'd have to say. It was really long and so i had so much to fold over my forehead and chin, but then it wasn't wide enough to adequately cover my cheeks. The eye holes were so uncomfortable and tiny that the sheet mask kept creeping up into my eyes and irritating them. The mouth hole was also really tiny and awkwardly shaped which I don't enjoy as I don't usually want the serum on my lips and therefore risk getting into my mouth.
- the sheet mask is a really thick cotton which might sound lush and all, but actually meant it didn't adhere to the face as well as other more thinner fibre woven sheet masks. I think the combination of the thick mask and the awkward shape just made the actual experience just a little difficult as I constantly had to keep adjusting the mask to my face.
- the serum is really beautiful and nourishing, but in my opinion it's too thick and heavy for the purpose of a sheet mask. The best sheet masks usually use quite a runny serum or essence that soaks really well into the mask itself, making it easy to adhere to the skin and soak into the skin quite well. This serum was so thick that it felt quite gloopy on the face. I believe it would make an absolutely beautiful serum that I would 100% use, but I don't think is that ideal for a sheet mask.
Great value face mask which delivers on promise!
Great packaging; clear instructions on how to apply and single use packaging - the face mask is not encased in an additional layer of plastic with excess serum to deal with. The mask itself is heavy and durable enough to contain all the serum and stretches easily as per the recommendation to fit your face. I walked around with the mask on, there was no slippage - it stayed where I placed it and didn't dry out or move within the 15 minutes it was active.
Serum is really lovely - squeezed out the mask at the end of application and applied to face, neck and décolletage using a jade roller to help with absorbance. I had already applied serums and actives prior to applying the mask, once all Olay serum had soaked in I layered over with facial creams and oils. No issue with dryness or tacky residue.
My skin immediately felt refreshed and hydrated, looking forward to seeing the benefits of the Niacinamde and Retinol over the next few days!
Firstly I thought this would be a good way to try both retinol and niacinamide. It also contains peptide and vitamin E
When I opened the packaging the scent was a little strong, I was unsure whether I could bear the scent but it was tolerable and not distracting at all, it actually smelt fruity the whole time of application.
The sheet mask texture is a bit thicker and softer than other sheet masks I have used. I Initially the serum is white in colour and turns to clear when applied to skin. Once I put the sheet mask on my face it was refreshing and relaxing experience. The packaging is bright and the wording is clear to define what this product aims to achieve.
I noticed my skin was smoother and little more supple the morning after.
On application with the mask itself, I found it fiddly especially around the eyes, the sachet states to stretch the mask to get full coverage on the face which I did which had a good amount of stretch in it from the special elastic substrate.
For one mask the price is $10.99 I would probably try the bottle version next.
Excited to try the Olay niacinamide and retinol mask as I love their retinol night cream. With all masks like this, it’s a great opportunity to pamper and indulge yourself in popping the mask on, laying down somewhere comfy and zoning out while the mask does it’s magic. As a few of the other reviewers mentioned, the mask is a bit small and you have to try and pull it into position to fit it correctly. It can be a little messy due to how much product the mask is soaked in, but once I positioned it, I enjoyed the feeling of the product being absorbed into my skin. After 15mins or so I took the mask off and rubbed the remaining product into my skin a bit more. There was also leftover serum in the packaging, so I rubbed that into my nec and décolletage so it wouldn’t be wasted. I definitely found that my skin looked refreshed and brighter. I also found that I had to use a moisturiser within about half an hour as my skin started to feel a bit dry. It is a good mask, but I think there are better and cheaper ones out there.
Nice but small :(
Thank you Beautycrew for the opportunity to trial this product.
I love face masks and use them often to force myself to slow down and do something nice for my skin. This mask felt very luxurious, despite the price point and I noticed that my skin looked plumper and felt smoother in the morning.
However, I felt I couldn't rate it higher than 3 stars because the size was just too small for my face! I had to rub the excess serum into the sections of my face that were uncovered to try and make sure that my entire face was treated.
Nice product, but the size is not ideal, and might alienate some potential customers.
This was my first time trying a sheet mask and first time using a topical retinol product. The mask was light and cooling and covered my face well with lots of product. The scent was subtle and pleasant. After removal after 15 minutes the product was slightly tacky on my skin with lots of product remaining which absorbed overnight. In the morning my face felt and looked hydrated, soft and dewy. Most surprisingly my face wasn’t puffy like it usually is in the morning. I continued to apply the leftover product in the packet on my skin. This would be a lovely addition to a skin routine when wanting a little pampering or refreshing and would make a great gift for friends and family.
Waste of time
This product is not something I would buy, a single-use item is hardly going to cause lasting benefits for my skin and there are more cons than pros: it’s messy, sloppy, the fragrance is annoying and there are better sheet masks that aren’t so soaked in product they’re a nuisance to use. I would use the serum over this as you have control and it’s multi-use - may actually see a difference over time! Also, I hate fragranced items and they’re not good for your skin. Wouldn’t use again and don’t recommend. Wouldn’t buy it. Results? Pfft.
