Olay Regenerist micro-sculpting serum review

I won this Olay Regenerist Advance Anti-aging micro-sculpting serum through Allure's Free Stuff Giveaway in the August issue. When the package came, it was a total surprise to me, because I was never notified. It came in a small little box, and it was packaged nicely. It had a "Congratulations" note in there, which I thought was nice. I was surprised to have won something, because it was usually "First 500 readers to sign up wins...." I remember I would "go to the restroom" while I was at work each hour to just sign up for the contests, lol!

Here's a quick overview and claims from

"Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Serum penetrates down into skin's surface to deliver our super-concentrated amino-peptide and B3 complex. This fast absorbing, non-greasy formula provides specially designed hydration that softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improves skin's texture. Skin looks brighter, more radiant and significantly firmer after just five days.
Non-Greasy. Fast-Absorbing. Dermatologist Tested. Non-Comedogenic (won't clog pores). Suitable For Normal, Dry and Combination Skin."

Price: $25.99

My thoughts:
I started using this product on Monday, so it's been five days. I've used it day and night to see if it will make my skin look more "brighter, radiant, and firmer". So far, I can see a little bit of a difference :]
It has a very pleasant smell to it, almost like shampoo. I love the fact that it has a pump, it's easy to squirt product out, and makes it so much more sanitary. One pump will cover my entire face. When applied to my face, it absorbs quickly, and does not feel heavy or greasy. It actually makes my face feel soft and velvety. My pores appear smaller. Throughout the day, this product helps me keep my face from oiling up too fast. I can say this for a fact, because when I use a different moisturizer [which I will do the review of later], I start seeing beads of oil on my nose after 3-4 hours, but not with this. This particular product does not have SPF, so I would not recommend it for day time use.

Would I buy it? Yes! I would purchase it for a night time moisturizer.

Oh yes, I wanted to mention that on their website, you can find a $20 rebate if you spend $50 of Olay facial moisturizers, facial treatments and/or facial cleansers. Purchases must be made before January 31, 2011. The drugstores will usually have a sale on these items and there are always coupons in the newspaper.

Let me end with a question for you - What moisturizer do you use? Is there one you can recommend for oily/combination skin? I'm still on the lookout for a good one that contains SPF.


  1. Great review, and congrats on winning :) I had a free sample tube of this stuff and quite liked it. However my favourite is Boots No7, pertect and profect serum, its lush, just melts in to the skin, but don't think you can get that one in the states xxx

  2. congrats !! yay ! <3 as you know, i love the clinique moisture surge <3

    thats great that olay doesn't make you more "oily"..

  3. I have heard a lot of good words about Olay products, so I want to try them too:)

  4. Thanks for the review! Sounds like a nice moisturizer! Clinique Moisture Surge is really good, but idk how it would work for oily/combo skin because my skin is sensitive and on the dry side. Congrats on the win, love your blog girlie ♥

  5. your review ,dear makes me wanna buy it!^^
    great post!

  6. You won this? Waw that's a great prize.. Too bad it doesn't have spf though, but it seems like a good product...

    Reply to you: I only wore a bit of mascara on the pic, but I have lots of long and curly lashes all naturally... (pretty easy, I have to admit it) I haven't decided on the Twitter-thing yet, but be sure I'll follow you whenever I get one! ^.^

  7. I am really into anti ageing serums... I am currently trying Clinique Repairwear Serum and I am happy with the results, but once it's finished I might give a try on something else!
    Thanks for your review!

  8. ooo yah rebates :D I never take advantage of those ironically :\ I always forget about em :( nice review~
