Retinol is an anti-ageing wonder ingredient, helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, by increasing the production of collagen, as well as helping to fade age spots and smooth skin. Yet Olay research has shown that up to 50% of women who use retinol based skincare give up using it after less than a month as it can be too irritating and dry out skin (I am putting my own hand up here).
Enter game changing retinol skincare – OLAY REGENERIST RETINOL24. The range, designed to be used at night, is formulated with Olay’s proprietary Retinol 24 Retinoid Complex and bio-available Retinol, which combine for a highly stabilised form of Retinol that is more concentrated, and less irritating (I have somewhat sensitive skin, and I haven’t had any irritation at all). The bio-available formula is formulated with micro-encapsulation technology which helps to prevent exposure of the complex to air while it provides up to 24 hours of deep hydration for your skin. The range also helps to plump out skin and minimise fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin tone and firmness and diminish dark spots with continued use. Formulated without added fillers, dyes, phthalates sulphates, or fragrances, the range is designed to be gentler on skin. Consisting of a Night Serum, Night Moisturiser, and Night Eye Cream, the range is simple and easy to use at night, after cleansing, and before bed. If you are new to Retinols, or are prone so sensitivities, ease into the range by using either the Serum or Cream, and the Eye Cream, and gradually build up your own tolerance – I started with the Eye Cream and Serum every second night, then added the Night Cream after 10 days – it worked brilliantly. OLAY REGENERIST RETINOL24 Night Serum 30ml RRP $59.99, Night Cream 50g RRP $59.99, and Night Eye Cream 15ml RRP $59.99.
I have been using the range for 6 weeks (I wanted to go longer than the month!), and my skin feels so soft, fine lines and wrinkles have smoothed out, and my skin is wonderfully plump and hydrated. This is potent Retinol skincare without the potent price.
