First day: very impressed. It plumped up the skin on my forehead and made it really soft and smooth (I had some sun damage skin on my forehead). Second day: still impressed. Third day: some thing is happening..... Fourth day: breakout! 5-6 blinded white bumbs on my forehead (luckily I tried it only on my forehead). It might be from the silicones it in. I wanted to love it since it makes my skin so soft, smooth and hydrated (I am 29, combo(n/o)), but it is just not for me.
This is the one of the best products I have ever used on my face! I have very sensitive skin and it didn't break me out at all. It makes my face and throat feel like velvet. The only thing that keeps me from giving it a 5 is the smell. It's kind of a combination of sulfur and garlic! I know that's nasty, but it makes my skin look and feel so much better it's worth it!
I absolutely love this product! I just turned 23 and I started using this about a year ago when I got a free sample in the mail. I don't have any wrinkles, so I can't comment on its effectiveness in that category. But, it makes my skin feel like silk:) I have combination leaning towards dry skin and this evens everything out. I use it alone, just to feel nice. I also use it under my moisturizer before foundation. It is a great primer! My HG:)
I started using this almost a year ago after a dermatologist on a local talk show lauded its amino-peptides (along with another product which cost $120 for a 1 ounce jar). Regenerist Serum has never broken me out or dried out my combination skin. Quite the opposite: I'm 34, have no lines around my eyes and am continually mistaken for being in my early twenties. Not bad. I use it every morning - with or without moisturizer - it absorbs well, is never greasy and leaves my face feeling like a baby's bottom. Also makes my undereye concealer (which I unfortunately need a lot of) go on extremely smoothly. Love it.
I don't why there are so many negative reviews about this product. I really like this. I actually had a sample of this quite a long time ago and never tried it. I finally tried it three weeks and am in love with this! I even use this around my eyes with no irritation at all. The circles are so much better and the fine lines have disappeared. The deeper lines have improved. I have no breakouts or rashes with this product and I have really sensitive skin! I am 49 yo and had pretty oily skin all my life, but with age comes dryness! In the morning I use the serum under my foundation. At night I use the serum, but use a night cream over it and my face for extra moisture. I ran out and bought a full size bottle and am anxious to see further results which I will post at a later date.
I used this twice, and broke out in numerous flesh colored bumps, followed by an itchy red rash.
I don't have sensative skin, and have NEVER reacted to a product like this.
This is my first and last olay product!!
I had high expectations of this product as I have used other OO products and love them. I am still using this product but every time I use it it causes breakout on my chin. I do like the the effect it has on the rest of my skin. I do not have sensetive skin, so I'm not sure why the chin breakout and no where else. I will finish the bottle but I won't buy again, a shame.
my first review! i LOVE this stuff! It makes my skin feel like silk. my ONLY complaint would be that in january in michigan, the serum isn't quite enough to keep the dry flakies away for me. i started using the night cream as well...problem solved!
I've been using this product around my eyes for months, waiting for some sort of difference to appear. Now that it's gotten drier in the wintertime, I thought I would use it on my entire face. Big mistake!!! I've broken out over my entire face. I am not one of those to subscribe to the "you need to break out first to remove all of the impurities that are deep inside your skin" theory; I believe the silicone in the serum broke me out since I have oily, acne-prone skin.
I realize I'm in the minority, but this product did absolutely nothing (positive) for my skin but plug up some oil glands and give me the worst break-out I've had since I got a facial at Clarins with Lotus Oil. I can't even use this as a makeup primer because, besides clogging my pores and making me break out, it begins to peel and flake as soon as I apply the foundation (wet or dry); it makes no difference whether I apply the makeup immediately after the ORS or I give it time to absorb. Sadly, the more expensive EL Idealist works better for me (although I understand there aren't any peptides or anything in it, just sugar acids) as a skin treatment as well as a primer. I will not be purchasing this again. continued >>
Well I just got this the other day. My skin suddenly decided to behave badly so I was on the hunt for something new. I heard some decent reviews on this stuff so I gave it a shot. At first I thought it was contributing to more break outs however, another reviewer on MUA mentioned that her breakout were probably caused by this stuff bringing out all the bad from inside out....Well day 3 of using this stuff ( along with the nighttime renewal creme and eye regenerist serum ) and I have to admit I do see a slight difference....so hopefully I can go on seeing and believing in drug store brands again, because I am so turned off by department store brands at the moment.
