You may be seeing these new items from Olay on the pharmacy shelves already. Both are targeted at people with different concerns – wrinkles and whitening. I swear, these are the two biggest concerns amongst ladies in Asia, with the latter probably trumping the former. I personally am a huge fan of hydrating. I find I have less problems when skin is hydrated.
But you know what they say right? You can’t beat gravity and time. Bah! 😛
The first of these new items, the Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Relaxing Cream brought tears of laughter to my eyes when I first came across the name. I’m sorry, I felt the name was a little lame 😛 But a friend recently raved away to me about a new Olay cream she had tried that was really really good for her, and helped smooth out fine lines. I asked her what it was and she sent me a picture – it was this very same one! Suddenly, the name wasn’t so funny if it really works 😛 I trust this friend’s opinion so I’m now raring to give this a go! Have you seen or tried it?
According to the box, this cream is supposed to work immediately to reduce wrinkles and smoothen skin. In 2 weeks, one can expect to have decreased wrinkles and better skin. It supposedly uses optics powders to do this skin smoothing act. I’m not sure what that means. Is it just an illusion? Curiouser and curiouser! Will let you know what I think of it in time to come if I give it a go 🙂
The other new item is under the Olay White Radiance range which is for whitening or brightening or radiance – whatever they are calling it now 🙂 This is the Olay White Radiance CelLucent White Essence Water. This water is supposed to make your skin look brighter and more radiant with just one application. Erm… I’d be quite quite worried if that really happened, to be honest.
This is a watery essence that you use like a toner i.e. after cleansing, before serum and moisturizer. When I read about it working for immediate results, I am a bit skeptical because I don’t like anything that works too miraculously off the bat. However this essence promises to not only inhibit melanin production, but also help treat existing pigmentation and when used in conjunction with the rest of the Olay White Radiance line, could deliver better results.
I tried the Olay White Radiance CelLucent White Essence and Cream a while ago but it broke me out. I gave it to someone else who loves it so really, your mileage will vary as with all skincare. Still, a watery essence sounds right up my alley. I like layering a few light products, instead of slapping on one thick layer. I find it works better for my skin.
Have you already tried either of the new Olay products featured here? If you have, please do share what you think and if you like/dislike it 🙂 As for myself, I think, after my friend’s raves on the Wrinkle Relaxing Cream, I’m going to give that one a go!
