I bought this product after reading so many great reviews. The packaging is perfect, I love the lid with pump. Also it feels perfect on skin, not too oily, enough moisture. Usually, after using any other moisturizer, my skin felt oily after couple of hours. But not with this moisturizer. It felt perfect even at the end of the day. However, I started breaking out more than before. Every time I used this moisturizer, I had 2 to 4 new zits at the end of day. I stopped using it few days ago - no more new breakouts. So unfortunately I give only 2 lippies.
The only good thing about this lotion is the packaging. I never ended up putting this on my face, rather, i used it on my neck a couple times and just couldn't get over the strong perfumy smell. On top of the totally inappropriate fragrance, it doesn't contain any significant amount of antioxidants. Overall, it's a smelly, bland, over-priced moisturizer. I've read good things about some of the other products under the regenerist line, but save your money and don't bother with this piece of crap.
I bought this when a airline lost my luggage on the way to Kodiak, AK. I settled on this product, when I couldn't find a cheap Jojoba or Vit E. Oil at a local drug store. I used it at night only, since it doesn't include SPF. It seemed to be hydrating without being oily. I kept using it for a week at night, even after finding my luggage. I ended up trashing a full bottle due to breakout and a bit of a rash developing on my cheek. Back to Jojoba and La Posay Roche.
This just reinforces why I never buy drugstore products.
I've tried all the moisturizer. From high end to low end, and though this is in the middle, I liked it the most. It moisturized my face throughout the day, and I also love how this absorbs quick and turns into matte-ish. I'm no genius but i found paraben in the ingredients and that's probably why its matte-ish. It looks light, but its creamier when applied to face.
I have eczema on my face and very acne prone with combo skin (oily t-zone and extra dry the rest of my face) and THIS product is the ONLY one that kept both hydrated without being oily. I've been using it for two weeks, and will update after a month or so.
The packaging is really unique, it pumps all the cream to the last drop.
I am on my 4th bottle of this cream, and decided it's time to write a review. I love it, obviously, since I keep repurchasing it. It is a great moisturizer, but it doesn't feel greasy or heavy. It makes my skin very smooth as well and works great under makeup. My skin tone is more even since I've been using this cream, and I've been able to switch to a sheer foundation (ES DW Light). I haven't used concealer in at least three months, and I know it's because of this product. Another huge plus for me is that this is unscented. I have two complaints: The outer packaging is over the top and cumbersome, and probably adds to the cost of the product, and there is little to no warning when the jar is getting low, which has caused me to make emergency trips to the store to get more. Otherwise, I really like this. I wish it was cheaper, but I've been able to use my store coupons and I pay about $20.00 for this. I think the actual price is $25.00 or $30.00. I definitely recommend this, especially if you are over 40. It is now summer, and I just started using the version of this with SPF. I will review that separately at another time.
I read about how this is a good moisturizer when using Retin-A in a magazine about five months ago. I don't use it daily but I do use it on a fairly regular basis and I'm just now in need of a second bottle--and I will definitely repurchase. I didn't expect a lot from this moisturizer when I bought it. Like many others, I've tried regenerist products and just thought they were 'okay' and certainly not worth the hype. Additonally, I've tried a bevy of moisturizers that were supposed to help that dried-out Retin-A peely skin and did nothing. This one is really good at moisturizing skin without leaving a film, without causing acne and with a pleasant scent. For my dry yet acne-prone skin this has worked really well. I'm impressed, especially, with how nice my skin looks when I use it--very supple and healthy looking.
While I do like the Regenerist Serum, I just haven't been that excited about other Olay products I've tried. But I had huge dry patches, most likely from cold weather, so I went looking for a moisturizing cream. This was on sale and I had a $2 off coupon, so it was worth a try. Even with my dry patches, I was a little scared of the "deep hydrating" label but that turned out not to be true. If I had chronically dry skin, I doubt this would help. HOWEVER, it does work well as a normal moisturizer. After I got rid of the dry patches with jojoba oil, Renerating Cream has kept my skin supple and provides some protection against cold dry air without being heavy. The true test will be when the weather warms up, but for now, I would repurchase.
I have dry skin & picked this up thinking it would keep my skin well moisturized. Well I'm actually a bit torn because this is actually a very good product. It does sink in & moisturize but it's not enough for me. My skin is still dry a few hours later & if I want extra moisture, I have to put a few layers on in the morning. When I mentioned this to Olay, they told me that this particular product was geered towards Normal to slightly dry/combo skin. Regardless of which type of skin it's geered towards, it's a good moisturizer if your skin is combo or slightly dry but if you're battling dry flakey skin, this probably won't be enough. I wouldn't repurchace but I'd tell others to buy it & try.
To be fair I have only used this product twice. I bought it yesterday on a whim without checking here to read the reviews. Of course I did so as soon as I got home and I got a bit worried. I have acne prone, dry skin with a very slick t-zone. I've tried countless moisturizers over the years from high to low and and they either left my face slick, tacky or not moisturized enough. It is now 2pm and I have not washed my face since last night. Tsk, tsk, I know but I'm sick and have been in bed all day. I looked in the mirror a few moments ago and immediately thought, "Man, you look awful!" Then upon second glance I noticed that there was not an oil slick to be found. As an added bonus I also saw that my incredibly uneven tone looks much, much more even and those pesky little acne marks aren't nearly as prominent. I'm only 31 and don't have wrinkles yet so I can't comment on that. It's too soon anyway. I will update this in a month or so.
I'm in love - perfect day cream for me - perfect under my base and bronzer - and keeps me moisturized all day...and this is a major thing for me as I live in a cold climate and have very dry skin. For the price and the upscale packaging - its become a HG for me.
