Beauty: Olay Regenerist Luminous Two-Week Check-in


It’s been two weeks since I’ve started my #BestBeautiful journey with Olay. My new routine has been pretty easy to follow… as easy as 1, 2, 3, actually. Each morning and evening I wash my face with the Brightening Cream Cleanser to brighten and exfoliate, followed by Tone Perfecting Cream to hydrate and smooth my skin, and the Dark Circle Correcting Hydraswirl to reduce the appearance of dark circles. And though it’s still too early to see those pesky spots disappear, here are my thoughts on the Olay Regenerist Luminous line so far.

The Good:

First of all, I must say that I just love the smell and texture of all three products. The Tone Perfecting Cream in particular felt silky smooth and super luxurious to the touch. My skin feels soft and supple, a lot like it feels after using primer, which makes makeup application a breeze. The Brightening Cream Cleanser is creamy and leaves my skin feeling hydrated.

Dark Circle Correcting Hydraswirl didn’t make my dark circles disappear (yet?), but I did notice a difference after a couple of days, which was pretty cool. Overall, my complexion looks brighter and more radiant after every application.

Not My Cup of Tea:

Although I will continue to use the Brightening Cream Cleanser for the remaining weeks, I do wish it was more foamy. To get my face completely clean, I feel like I have to wash it twice in order to remove all makeup and impurities.

Also, while I really like the Dark Circle Correcting Hydraswirl eye cream so far, I could do without the glitter-like particles, which can be a bit too much at times.

Two-week Verdict:

Overall, I am very impressed with the Olay Regenerist Luminous line. Following the regimen is very easy, and my skin’s been responding really well to the products. I love how smooth my skin feels and how bright it looks after every application! As for those spots, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. Six more weeks to go!

    I remember there was a “before” picture. Can we see an “after” picture as well? I’m interested. Though these products are not yet available my country, the tone perfecting cream sounds really nice with uts primer-like smoothness, and if it is worth it I’ll get one next time I travel abroad.

      Hi Dora! I’ll definitely post the before and after, once the 8 weeks are up. The difference at 2 weeks is very subtle, so I doubt you’ll be able to tell. Hopefully, it’ll be more noticeable in a few weeks. I will do one more post on this!

      Thanks for reading! xo

    Nelia I am also interested in seeing the after pic. Have a few marks on my face that would be swell if they could not exist. Hope this works for you.
