While I was in Philly a couple of weeks ago, I tried out the new line of Olay products, the Regenerist Luminous line… and there’s just nothing like diving into a brand new pot of face cream! To be honest, I hadn’t been using a facial cream moisturizer for awhile, GASP! I know. I’d been using a treatment cream as the third step in my skin care regimen and since living in the warm and humid state of Florida, I hadn’t felt like I needed much more moisture (which isn’t necessarily true, I just found I didn’t like to be too greasy). The Tone Perfecting Cream Moisturizer came at the perfect time, because in the cold and dry climate my skin was thirsty and I’d forgotten how much winter really dries out your skin! A plus was that it didn’t leave my skin feeling greasy at all, but rather the formulation is pretty light and airy and with the silicones that smooth the surface of the skin I’ve actually been able to omit a foundation primer in the morning (because it works much the same way and pulls double duty as a moisturizer and primer!).
The Regenerist Luminous collection just launched at Walmart and as the name would imply, the overall goal of the line is to bring a new “luminosity” to skin, which is something every age range can get on board with. Each product in the basic three part skin care regimen that I tried is formulated with either exfoliating micro-beads (found in the Brightening Cream Cleanser), silicones or light diffusing beads that give instant smoothing and “luminous” results, while the long-term benefits are realized with ingredients like Niacinamide to gently exfoliate the skin’s surface, OliveM, Green Tea and Vitamin E to help protect the skin from free radical damage and N-Acetyl Glucosamine to help even out skin tone. The Niacinamide and N-Acetyl Glucosamine have also been shown to help reduce hyper-pigmentation (dark spots) by reducing excess melanin production.
My favorite is definitely the Dark Circle Correcting HydraSwirl, which first caught my eye with the packaging. After over two weeks of continuous use now, I can see the difference it’s made in moisturizing, plumping and smoothing my under eye area, but right off the bat, I loved the slight “cosmetic” brightening it gave to combat dark under eye circles with a subtle light-diffusing brightener. I’ve noticed that I use less concealer on that area now.
Okay I’ll stop rambling here, you can hear all about it below in this video created for Walmart with Olay!
Want to try it for yourself? The great thing is that this collection is totally affordable and won’t break the bank. I decided since I loved the HydraSwirl so much I’d offer a chance for you to try it too! So just enter below and I’ll send the winner a $25 gift card to Walmart to try their product of choice.
