I really think this product is awesome in the sense that it's light, smells great, and makes ur skin soft -
but it gives me break outs on my chin - too bad...
I use Paula's Choice and it worked out great so far, but if you don't have sensitive skin and are not prone to acne this product is great to try...
Would I buy this product again? Yes - over and over again! I have been using this serum for several years now. I love the texture - nice and light - not too greasy for a serum. My skin drinks it right up. I love the pump dispenser. It's easy to get just the right amount every time and the dispenser never clogs up. The fragrance is pleasant - again nice and light - and it doesn't linger. I've used other serums - Paula's Choice (I forget which formulation) which was too greasy and Kirkland's Signature Borghese which had too strong a fragrance and was a little irritating to the skin. Regenerist is my absolute favorite. Costco carries it and occasionally offers coupons which make it a terrific deal.
I have tried and stopped using this product a number of times as it breaks me out after a few days of use in each occasion.
It gave my face a nice soft finish but for some unknown reason, I had no trouble in using it continously for the past three months. Yet in the last couple of weeks, I started getting pimples and really irritated skin with itchy patches on my cheeks and jaw line. After I've stopped using it again for three days, all the symtoms are gone. What can I say, I don't think it is worth risking my skin with this product again.
[EDIT: I don't use this product anymore. It was not doing anything for me after all when last winter my skin broke out in the worst atopic dermatitis I have ever had. I am using Paula's Choice Skin Recovery Antioxidant Serum with much better results.] I am extremely shocked at the re-purchasing percentage for this serum. This is the best product of the Olay Regenerist line, IMO. The texture is light and one pump is enough to cover my whole face. It's inexpensive compared to most serums and the packaging is great. It's full of antioxidants and niacinamide. I have tried a couple of serums before but nothing has felt so soft and given me results. Seriously, using a moisturizer alone was not cutting it. I have very dry eczema-prone skin (I have to be meticulous to keep it at bay), and I'm sure this serum has aided in keeping my facial eczema away for two winters so far and through the changes in season. It seems to allow my skin to hold moisture and maintain an even tone more easily. I will re-purchase this as long as they keep making it. Oh! And I got 3.4 oz from Costco for less than $30! (Usually 1.7, might be 1.4, don't remember now, cost a little under $20. Good deal at Costco!!) I use the fragrance free serum.
This is nice in really cold, dry weather but there are no regenerating effects. Dimethicone only gives a temporary barrier effect and for the price it is not a good value.
I have dry to normal skin with very fine eye wrinkles. This product actually made me look older. lol!! I tried it alone with and without make up and with a moisturizer, each time it looked horrible, stung, and burned my skin!! I would not recommend this product as either a moisturizer or skin primer. The only good things are the packaging, great list of ingredients, and the pump dispenser.
I got this in a 10ml sample. It feels heavenly when I put a little on my middle and fourth fingers and pat it all over my face. My skin looks happy for about 20 minutes. I put it on before going to bed but by morning there seems to be little difference. The glow and radiance fades by then. I will not buy it.
So I am 30 and this product did nothing to "regenerate" my skin. Does it prevent wrinkles? Who knows? It works just about as well as my other moisturizers. This product wasn't amazing and didn't do anything remarkable for my skin. Will not be repurchasing.
This product is misleading. I used it for about a month and I did not see ANY regeneration. Bascially the hype around this product is due to the fact that it has dimethicone in it, which is a common ingredient in a lot of make-up primers. The "smoothness" this products creates is just cosmetic--once you wash your face you'll see that there are no lasting results from using this. If you still want to get it--make sure you get the unscented one. The regular one smells like cheap men's cologne.
