I have to admit, when I first got my hands on Olay Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir, I was a little hesitant — and, yes, scared. “Resurfacing” sounded like such an intense word for my sensitive skin. But then I realized I was overreacting, because nothing from Olay has ever been, or will ever be, harsh on any skin type!
So I got over my fears and slathered this leave-on nighttime moisturizer all over my skin. Skin, I’ll have you know, that was dry, breaking out and far from its beautiful best.
Well, imagine my surprise and delight when, in just one treatment, my skin already looked a MILLION times better. When I woke up the next morning, the dryness was gone and the pimples were fading. I felt like I was looking at a different face from the night before – and the results have only improved in the few weeks I’ve been testing it out. I’m glowing, radiant and look as if I’ve gotten a facial or (gasp!) had work done.
Not to mention, I absolutely love the formula. The gel-like consistency has a touch of shimmer to it, so it’s like there’s a party in my apartment every night before bed. Thanks to glycolic acid that permeates the upper layers of the skin’s surface and increases natural exfoliation, it works with the body’s nightly changes to smooth skin in just one week. This moisturizer actually works as well as a professional light chemical peel.
You’ll also find humectants like glycerin and glycol, Pal-KTTKS (Regenerist’s proprietary, signature anti-aging penta-peptide) and skin soothers like pro-vitamin B5 and allantoin within the formula.
What all this boils down to? At the end of the day, I’m reaching for my Olay.
