OLAY REGENERIST OVERNIGHT MIRACLE

Brought to you by Olay and Vogue Australia.

I have admission… I’m lazy!

This laziness has been perfected over the years and I now have it down to a fine art.

How did I bring up four children, manage a household and work full time I hear you ask?

I won’t lie and pretend that I’m superwoman… I’m not!

I’m always time-poor and feeling tired, but by surrounding myself with items that make my life easier, I have been able to indulge myself as much as possible.

Skin care has been the one area in my life that has suffered. My excuses range from “I’m too tired” and “it takes too long!” to “I can’t afford to spend the money.”

But as I approach 50 (this is slightly scary for me, I’m not quite sure if I am ready for the big five-oh), I have realised that I can no longer be lazy with my skin.

So… I was very excited when I was asked, some time ago, to review the new OLAY Regenerist Overnight Miracle range.

Just the name had me excited! Something that would work “while you were sleeping” (a lazy girls dream).

These products tick all the boxes

  • Affordable
  • Convenient
  • Easy
  • Anti-Ageing (my BIGGEST tick)

This regime is made up of 3 products –

  1. Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre- Essence
  2. Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream
  3. Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Night Cream

1. OLAY REGENERIST MIRACLE BOOST YOUTH PRE-ESSENCE – $39.99

So this one had me sold just by reading the title – miracle boost and youth.

It didn’t disappoint! It is a beautiful, lightweight formula that glides onto the skin.

After normal cleansing, apply to the skin (the dropper automatically draws up the correct amount for you to press the button and dispense onto your skin). The recommended dosage is two pumps and I found that this was more than enough for my face and my neck. Use morning and night.

2. OLAY REGENERIST MICRO-SCULPTING CREAM $48.99

Finding a good day cream has in the past been very tricky for me.

I want a cream that will moisturise but not leave me greasy all day.

I don’t want my foundation sliding right off my face every time I touch it. Don’t laugh… I have, in the past, left foundation all over phones and pieces of paper after touching my face! It is embarrassing to have to apologise for leaving part of your ‘face’ on a work mate’s paperwork.

I love how your skin feels firmer after application. You only need use a small amount of the day cream in an upwards and circular motion focusing on the jawline and the brow. This cream has advanced anti-ageing actives that penetrate skin 10 layers deep. It has been proven to out-moisture even the expensive department store creams without leaving a greasy or sticky feel.

3. OLAY REGENERIST MICRO-SCULPTING NIGHT CREAM $48.99

The night cream is a unique gel-like formula that I found left my face feeling dewy fresh.

This is applied at night after cleansing and using the Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence. You use the same technique as the day cream focusing on the jawline and brow – these are the first two areas for me that have started to show the signs of ageing.

This cream works while you sleep when the harsh stresses of the daytime (UV rays and pollution) are not present. Your skin gets the chance to rest, recover and start to repair… a chance to compensate for years of complacency and neglect.

With regular use this can help you look 10 years younger – this means I will only be turning 40 next year!

OLAY… YOUR REGENERATION SOLUTION!

  • Love your lazy girl approach to life Karen – it made me smile, because it could have been me saying those exact words! Like you I’m loving all three products from the range. My skin feels hydrated, plump and comfortable. My make-up also glides on, and stays on (I do add a kick-ass primer under my foundation though). Great post! xxx

  • I’ll admit I used to be super lazy when it came to skin care, but when I started noticing a few fine lines I became hooked on my skin haha. Not tried Olay – I’ll def keep it in mind for the future though!

    Look at you without makeup, can’t believe you will be 50 next year!
