I bought this cream after reading a ton of reviews by people who claimed it did great things for their skin. I was eexpecting it be some kind of miracle cream. It actually made me break out. I noticed many small bumps on my forehead and chin area after a few days of using it.
It did make my skin very soft and tight. I had to stop using it. I really wanted it to work for me.

This is a review for the revised version. I saw a review on yt of this. I was looking for a reasonably priced, readily available moisturizer for the winter. This fit the first 2 criteria, but unfortunately it wasn't moisturizing. I will say that I do use retin-a and that keeping the moisture barrier of my skin intact can be a challenge, especially in winter. I do use vitamin c occasionally as well. However, when I was at CVS picking up a few things, I got to talking to the beauty advisor. I showed her an area around my mouth that had gotten very dry and sandpapery. I told her I was using this cream twice a day, and she told me that it was more exfoliating than moisturizing. It was then that I realized that I had just a few days before slathered this Regenerist cream around my mouth to add a bit of extra moisture. The dryness and flaking continued for days after I stopped using it, and only after constantly applying argan oil on the area (I had a small bottle of Josie Maran). If exfoliating is what you need then I recommend this as an alternative to AHA. Not sure what the active ingredient is (the beauty advisor at CVS didn't know) , but it was quite impressive for a drugstore cream! I just wish it was labeled correctly so I could have spared my flaky skin episode.

I purchased the Sculpting cream, unfragranced without sun screen because of a great coupon. I've never tried any of the Regenerist. I usually use Avon or Neutrogena., My skin is normal, neck and forehead tends to be dry. What I do not like about this is after application it feels tacky, sticky? Does not soak in. Goes on great, but even this morning, my skin felt kind of sticky. I have my receipt and think I will return it.

I have this and everyone raves about it.
But honestly, it's not that amazing.
It really moisturizes, but that's about it.
The packaging could be better (maybe a pump?) because you have to dip your finger in it each time spreading germs.

I really like this cream. I'm 28 and wanted to start using something to prevent wrinkles now :)
I've been using it over rose hip oil at night. Very moisturising, I use a small amount under my eyes as well as my face and neck and it doesn't irritate them at all (I have extremely sensitive eyes).
Doesn't make me break out either, like a lot of heavy anti-aging creams do.
A little bit pricey for a drugstore brand. The cheapest place I've found it is at chemist warehouse (I'm in Australia) for $35. I wouldn't pay the RRP of $50.00

I just started this product about 4 weeks ago and I have to say I already see a difference in my skin. I have acne prone skin and was worried that this would break me out but I have less acne now then before. I wanted something for aging skin now that I'm getting older and it seem like the ones with retinols in it broke me out but not this one! The results so far more even skin tone,red spots are less noticeable from acne,fine lines are less noticeable. Really happy so far! I had tried this under my makeup and the only thing it feels a little thick so I just put this on at night,with my Olay Regenerist Eye Lifting Serum(Walmart Brand) and Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Serum Fragrance Free. During the day I just put the Serum,SPF, and then my foundation and powder. UPDATE- Its been 6 weeks now and I have notice the expression line(squint line) between my eyes is less noticeable outside. It seems like it got worse then got better. I'm still using everything I mention up above except the eye serum.

I was looking for a moderately priced night cream with "benefits" and this one is fragrance-free (a must.) I found it with a 3 buck coupon, so costing about 29 at Walgreens but it's a lot cheaper online.
It's a medium thick cream, goes on with some microglitter (why?) and absorbs almost completely but leaves a slight stickiness. As a night cream for my over sixty skin, it is a bit light but it does smooth me out. I did not break out in lumps, which is something that happens with some creams (L'Oreal for one.)
I'd rate it average to good, not quite as good as DHC Tocopherol cream for moisturizing but better for smoothing effects. If you buy it online, it can cost half of what it does in drugstores, so a budget choice for sure.

Bottom line--it doesn't moisturize. It goes on fine, but I wake up with really dry skin. Not acceptable.

I absolutely love this. I'm 27 and have noticed fine lines around my eyes when I'm dehydrated, and have been experimenting with some anti aging products for the last few years. I've used this around a month or so, and it is amazing. When I apply it, my cheeks almost look airbrushed, the pores look so minimized. It feels lovely on your skin, it's a nice thick moisturizing formula, but doesn't break me out. It works well under foundation and isn't too thick, and absorbs perfectly into the skin. I haven't noticed if it has any long term affects on anything like fine lines, etc, but I do feel it's make my facial skin feel firmer. The price kept me from purchasing initially because it's a drugstore product and I felt it was steep, but it's well worth it.

My face is oily, breakout-prone, but sensitive and I thought this rich cream would be too heavy for my face, so I bought this for my neck and chest to help ward off lines, wrinkles, and sagginess. At 29 I was already starting to see a loss of firmness in my neck and chest and since this cream had great reviews from many sources. I opted for the fragrance-free version because Olay is notorious for overly-scented products (in fact some of their pother products I didnít buy a second time because of the added fragrance). This does have some micro-glitter/shimmer mixed in, which is annoying and unnecessary, but doesnít seem to bother my skin. At first use, this hydrated my skin immediately and it took about two weeks to see the skin of my neck and chest become more even-toned, smooth, and firm. On a whim, I tried this on my face when I noticed some dry patches and I broke out (lesson learned). This one jar doesnít last a very long time (about three months), though since I am using it to cover my neck and chest I imagine Iím going through it twice as fast as someone who is just using it on the face; and I wish it came in a more hygienic pump, but itís a great product and Iím seeing the results I want, so I will keep buying this.
