Olay Regenerist Cream and Aveeno Hair Kit Giveaway

Please don't forget to enter my Too Faced Shadow Insurance Giveaway. It ends December 18, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. PST.

I bought Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream from Costco earlier this year.
I haven't had the time to review this, but I thought I should. I always say it's better later than never. ;)
Product Review: Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-aging Micro-Sculpting Cream

Where can you purchase this: drugstore, retail, Costco, and online
Price: $30 something (I cannot remember the exact price)

Made in USA

Description from the back: Hydrate and firm skin's appearance without drastic measures.

The result of over 50 years of Olay research, this luxurious cream has the highest concentration of our signature amino-peptide + B3 complex infused with intracellular fortifier and a touch of precious marine proteins.

The Results: Intracellular hydration regenerates volume and shape across skin's 10 million surface cells, progressively lifting and micro-sculpting to help:
* firm sagging-prone areas, even the jaw line
* smooth skin's surface
* restore elasticity
My thoughts: The first time I saw this was when my sister-in-law was using it. I asked for her opinion and she said she loved it. I thought it wouldn't hurt getting one from Costco.

Is it just me but all anti-aging products in the US come in red packaging. Why is that? I also noticed they come in thick bottles. :/

The first thing I did is smell the cream. It smells fruity to me, but I could be wrong. I know some people think the smell is thick, but it doesn't bother me. I actually like the scent. :X If you don't like it, it lasts about 5 minutes or at least it does for me.
The texture of the cream is thick, beige color. If you have oily skin, this definitely isn't for you. I think it's a great night cream for people with normal to dry skin. You can use it during the morning as suggested, but I don't. There's a reason why I don't. I don't know if it's just me but I noticed whenever I wear this cream during the morning and apply makeup afterwards (I do with most moisturizers), it makes my face look like it has dry patches. I don't have dry patches, but I noticed a layer of something moves around. It's so irritating. For the longest time, I couldn't figure it out until now. In my opinion, I think this cream doesn't melt into your skin. Maybe in the beginning it hydrates your skin but if you put too much, it just sits on your skin. I could be wrong, but that's the only thing I could figure out why I have thick chunks of something. It's not like I put too much cream either. After I apply it, my skin looks smooth, but I could feel the consistency of cream on your skin.

By the way if you're wondering about the spoon, Shiny Pretty Things gave it to me. It was so nice of her to send me one! :) I use it all the time, and it's so worthwhile. You don't have to dip into your moisturizer/cream anymore.

Thank you Shiny Pretty Things! :)

Other than the smell and texture, I think it hydrates your skin well. After I apply the cream, my face feels smooth. I don't know about the anti-aging effect, but my skin has looks decent.

* Olay; brand I trust.
* Fruity smell.
* Scent doesn't last long.
* Thick consistency.
* Great for dry skin.
* Great for winter weather.
* Good for night.
* Hydrates.
* Your skin feels smooth.

* So thick, consistency doesn't completely absorb onto skin.
* Not so great for morning.

Would I repurchase: Maybe, only for night cream.

Olay has a lot of fans but for some reason doesn't work for me. Boo! I am so glad it works for you. :) And I love those spatulas! So sweet of her to send you one.

(I don't know b/c I haven't seen it in person yet ;)
