Olay Regenerist Luminous Collection Review

April 24th, 2015

I have been someone who researches a lot on the skin care products before using them as I have a sensitive skin and have to be really careful with what I put on my face. As such, I am quite particular about the brands I use and carefully avoid. Olay has been a part of my skin care regime for more than a decade now, and have got my hands on several of their ranges.

When we talk about Olay, we know we are talking about a skin care brand of repute. We know the starting point of the conversation is years and years of research, of innovation, of quality and performance.

So when Olay released their new ‘Regenerist Luminous’ collection a few weeks ago, I was expectedly excited. Not because it is big brand, but because the new range promised to work on some of my skin care concerns – dark spots and uneven skin tone.

The three major products from the collection are:

  • Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Treatment
  • Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream
  • Olay Regenerist Luminous Brightening Cream Cleanser

 

Below is a brief description of each of the products and how I found them to be.

 

Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Treatment

Olay describes the product as,

  • Visibly fades the look of dark spots in 4 weeks
  • Penetrates 10 surface layers deep
  • Regenerates the look of tired skin
  • Exfoliates, smoothes, and brightens skin tone

 

In my opinion, this is the star product of the collection. It comes in a 40 ml bottle with a dropper. The treatment is a milky coloured serum with a gel texture. The treatment is applied before the moisturiser after cleansing the skin. It is best to leave the treatment on for about a minute before applying the moisturiser so the treatment is completely absorbed by the skin. The treatment is effective when used morning and night, and about 2-3 drops of serum is sufficient for a one time application on the face and neck. The directions ask for it to be applied on the uneven skin tone areas, but I used it all over the face and found it t work well as my unevenness is spread over the facial area.

Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream

Olay describes the product as,

Fade the look of dark spots in 8 weeks with Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream Moisturizer. Its Brightening Complex delivers tone ingredients 10 layers deep into the skin’s surface to help reveal pearlescent skin that glows.

I have used the Tone Perfecting Cream for more than 6 weeks, and have found it to be very hydrating. The cream in itself is super thick yet gets absorbed into skin with seconds. It leaves no oily layer on the skin, and leaves a lingering refreshing fragrance. I am not sure if the cream by itself has shown a sign of improvement with my skin tone, or if is the combination of the serum and cream but it definitely has worked in fading some unevenness on my facial skin. Most importantly, I found my skin to feel fresh and radiant. For me, a moisturiser’s basic requirement is hydration and this cream sure delivers on that.

The cream can be used morning and night as it does not have any SPF in it. For maximum results, apply sunscreen on top of the moisturiser to avoid any further damage to the skin. It took me about 4 weeks to see any visible change in my skin.

Olay describes the product as,

Instantly brighten dull and uneven skin with Luminous Brightening Cream Cleanser. Its gentle exfoliating micro-beads cleanse to reveal more luminous skin.

 

Cream cleansers are an important part of skin care regime during the colder months. Although I prefer gel cleansers as I like that squeaky clean feel to my face (I know, it’s not an ideal thing as I have dry combination skin), I choose a cream cleanser on days when my skin feels dry.

This cream cleanser is not just a cleanser but is also a gentle scrub with micro beads in it. I found it to be gentle on the skin and at the same time does an amazing job removing dirt and makeup. I have used some cream cleansers that leave a grimy layer on the skin after use but not this one. It delivers on my squeaky clean feel to an extent. The skin feels soft and supple after wards with no drying affect.
