Olay Regenerist Luminous Skin Tone Perfecting Day Cream 50ml, £29.99

New Olay Regenerist Luminous Skin Tone Perfecting Cream and Dark Circle Correcting Eye Swirl are the perfect regimen partners for luminous skin. Day after day, skin appears visibly energised and more even, while the look of dark spots and discolouration is reduced. Penetrates 10 layers, deep into the skin’s surface and renews it layer by layer to reveal more even, luminous pearl glowing skin. Apply morning and evening.” (Boots.com)

With continual use my complexion has brightened quite a lot over the last few weeks. I am so pleased with the results. My skin type is dry and uneven skin tone around my mouth, clog prone and sensitive. This cream has improved the tone considerably and hydrates well without being too thick. I use very little and never feel I have slick of cream on my face and at the same time this keeps my skin hydrated well all day. This is going on my repurchase list, as I have seen such great result.

There is one negative… This day cream does not have any SPF, so if I don’t have any SPF in my makeup I have to go over the cream with a light sunscreen like Neutrogena sheer touch, as it’s the only one that goes on well on top of other products whilst leaving a good base for makeup.

Olay Regenerist Luminous Anti-Dark Circle Correcting Eye Treatment 15ml, £29.99

“A distinctive dual-swirl gel and cream brightening formula to hydrate and reduce the appearance of dark circles. Apply morning and evening around the eye area after Skin Tone Perfecting Cream.” (Boots.com)

I have been using the Olay Regenerist line for years but this is the first time I have used a eye product as the price point is close to department store products, but now that I have tried this I know they are worth it. They absorb really quickly and brightened my undereye area within a few days of use! Also, my concealor goes on smoother ontop of this eye cream, so fab bonus. The only negative is the fussy packaging, as I travel the bottle is bulky for a eye cream and the lid has a tendency to pop off in transit… Other than that I would highly recommend for brightening dark circles!

Skincare series: Serums #1 – Olay Regenerist Serum Fragrance Free 50ml

Serums are my favourite skincare product and as such I felt it befitting to start this skincare series with a serum I have in my skincare arsenal. There is no way anyone needs as many serums as I have, but I like to try new products and to have ye-old-favourites at hand, it’s a comfort thing I suppose.

First up, and the most repurchased of my unhealthy (although I do believe having a good serum is healthy 😉 ) serum collection is Olay Regenerist serum fragrance free 50ml, £24.99

“Regenerist Fragrance-Free Regenerating Serum uses our exclusive amino-peptide complex combined with Olay moisturise. Our formulation visibly helps regenerate skin’s appearance and leaves skin feeling velvety smooth. perfect for normal skin, dry skin and combination skin. Add it your skin care routine to:

• Soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles instantly
• Hydrate for skin that feels visibly firmer and more elastic” (olay.co.uk)

How I apply this: one pump smoothed over the face and neck after cleansing, but before moisturiser.

My thoughts: I love how this serum calms redness and helps accelerate healing of pigmentation marks left from breakouts.

Negatives: When I get to the last quarter the pump can no longer get to the product as the tube normally sits in one corner and the serum isn’t liquid so doesn’t settle back down but instead clings to the edge of the bottle, I use a thin spatula to get the last dregs.

Positives: High performing, basic, with out any frills or fancy claims and, most important for me, fragrance free.

The serum line-up to follow: Caudalie, Imedeen, Yves Rocher, Ole Henrikson, Hydralauron, Elizabeth Arden & YSL.

Currently the Olay regenerist line is included in the 3 for 2 offer at boots.com.
