Forty is peeking around the corner and waving at me yelling, “Hey Girl! Hey!” and I’m giving her a major side-eye. No, ma’am! I’m not forty yet and I refuse to look older than I am. Let me tell you, having dry skin is tough to deal with and I learned in my twenties how important it is to have great skin care. Olay is a brand that I’ve used over the years and they just launched the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream.

I saw the commercial and I was seriously intrigued. According to a test by the Good Housekeeping Institute, the Olay cream performed better than 10 prestige creams. You know the ones with the pricey $440 price tag? I don’t know about you but I don’t have that kind of money to spend on a face cream and even if I did, I’m too cheap to do it…just being honest! LOL! I love it when a product is priced reasonably ($26.99). Nothing burns my buns more than expensive creams that don’t work.
The way my skin is set up…(in my Kevin Hart voice) I am always playing the balancing game with my skin. In addition to having a hard time balancing the moisture in my skin, as a dry skin girl, I’m more prone to wrinkles. Actually, slight lines and wrinkles in my skin are a good indicator that I’m dehydrated.
Honestly, lately, I’ve been slipping with my water intake and my skin care routine. Trust me when I tell you that my face is telling all of my lazy girl business. LOL! So, I’m trying to get back on track. With that, I’m drinking water like I’m a fish.
In addition to adding more water to my daily regimen, I need a hardcore moisturizer that can get me back on track quickly. Olay is solving the problem by offering a moisturizer at a reasonable price with their Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream. What I love even more is that the cream pulls double duty. It’s an anti-aging cream and a moisturizer that plumps your skin. I’ll take all of that, please and thank you.
Now let me get back to the reason why the commercial intrigued me. The Good Housekeeping Institute study caught my eye after I found out that they collected more than 10,000 hydration measurements and Olay was a top performer. In my mind, I was like, “hold on it’s less than $30 and it has the Good Housekeeping seal? Tell me more.”
Then I found out that after one day there should be a visible difference in the appearance of lines, hydration, and brightness. So you don’t have to wait four weeks to start seeing results. I don’t know about you but I love a little instant gratification.
Now the study did claim that in two weeks, you will notice that your skin is firmer and after four weeks, you will significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Yass!
What I love about the cream is that it has a rich and creamy feel but it’s still lightweight. One thing that deters me from some creams is the heaviness of the cream during warmer months. The Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is something that I can use during the summer and not have that smothered feeling. You know when your face sweats and it feels like something heavy is on your face? The worst feeling ever!
So far, I’m loving my results and I can’t wait to see how the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream performs long term. Right now I need all the help in the hydration department that I can get to get my skin back on track.
The ingredients for the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream look awesome and include some of my go-to products: Olivem (olive oil), Glycerin, Vitamin E, Vitamin B3, Hyaluronic Acid, etc. You see where I’m going with the list of awesomeness and I notice something new that I’ve never heard of before, Carob Seed Extract. Turns out the Carob Seed Extract aids in skin repair and regeneration. Sounds good to me!
Try it for yourself. You can find it at any retailer that sells Olay, so you don’t have to run around looking for the product like you do with the high-end stuff. Did I mention you can pick up a trial size too? Yes, this cream comes in a 1.7oz full size for $26.99 and a .5oz trial size for the ladies with commitment issues. LOL!
