Premium Anti-Aging Skin Cream at a Drugstore Price

In my odyssey to simplify my life, I've been looking for ways to switch up to more effective products that are either simpler or take less time to use, but the caveat? They can't be expensive. I've gone through the gamut of products and at the height of my insanity I was using a $120 anti-aging moisturizer. The funny thing is that it didn't give me $120-a-jar results. I'm actually getting those results at drugstore prices and I've got some awesome before-and-after pictures to show you!

What do I look for in an anti-aging moisturizer? At the bare minimum: intense hydration for the prevention of wrinkles. If I'm lucky I'll see some visible results, like a slight plumping of my wrinkles or tightening at the jawline, but I never hold my breath. There are so many products out there promising miracles that you never know if they'll deliver.

It feels like I've been a guinea pig for too many years. I just want something that works and I don't want to pay an arm and a leg for it. Is that too much to ask?

I was recently sent a jar of the Olay Micro-Sculpting Cream from the Regenerist line to try. You guys know how much I love Olay, but you also know how many products I've gone through. I agreed to try it out and take some before and after photos. No big deal.

Nope. Big deal. Really big deal. On the first day I saw results without having to scrutinize before and after photos. The first day!

It's not only an anti-aging cream but is a moisturizing and plumping powerhouse; hydration is one of the key benefits for preventative anti-aging. You can take your anti-aging destiny into your own hands without paying a premium.

I'm not the only one that saw amazing results. An independent test by the Good Housekeeping Institute showed that Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream outperforms 10 top prestige creams, including one with a $440 price tag. They conducted clinical and blinded consumer studies, where scientists collected more than 10,000 hydration measurements and Olay rose to the top.

Here is what they found:
  • FAST-ACTING: At the three-hour mark, Olay moisturized 400% better than a cream nearly 18 times its price and beat all other products tested.
  • LONG-LASTING HYDRATION: Olay increased moisture by 50% on average over a 24-hour period.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT TEXTURE: In blind comparisons, consumers preferred Olay 80% of the time over expensive creams, reporting that it felt "rich" without being heavy.
  • FIRMING & PLUMPING INGREDIENTS: Formulated with powerhouse ingredients like niacinamide and hyaluronic acid, Olay improved skin's texture by 10% in four weeks.

They promise amazing results over time and after just 3 days, I believe it.

  • Visible wrinkle results start at day 1 
  • Day one reduces the appearance of lines, boosts hydration and brightness. 
  • After two weeks, skin is noticeably firmer and skin elasticity is improved. 
  • Four weeks of use reduces the look of up to 10 years of wrinkles. 
The key ingredients include things like Carob Seed Extract that aids in skin repair and regeneration, Vitamin B3 that boosts cell turnover and maintains skin’s moisture barrier, Amino-peptides that help decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, Vitamin B5 that soothes and moisturizes the skin, Vitamin E, an anti-oxidant that protects against free radical damage, Olivem, a derivative of olive oil that has been modified to increase the penetration of anti-aging ingredients, and Glycerin and Hyaluronic Acid, powerful humectants with intense miniaturization properties. 

It's everything you need in one cream.

The cream is super-rich and thick, which is just how an anti-aging cream should be. It goes on smoothly and it feels great. My skin feels so incredibly dewy and hydrated afterwards. I use it morning and night after cleansing my face and absolutely see the results in the mirror every day.

I have one deep diagonal wrinkle under my eyes from smiling, but over the years it's been joined by some smaller friends. I can see that the main line is slightly fainter, but the others have almost disappeared, and this is after only 3 DAYS of use!

Are you ready for super-close, no makeup pics of my eye area?! Let's go in scary-close:


after 3 days of use

The results are amazing and so is the price. Just goes to show that you don't have to shop at a department store and pay hundreds to get amazingly effective anti-aging skincare products.

You can get Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting cream anywhere Olay is sold or get it here now!
