Renewing My Skin with Olay Regenerist Luminous Skincare #BestBeautiful

Since I was a teenager, I’ve dealt with hormonal breakouts and even in my 30s, that doesn’t look like it’s going to change any time soon. It’s frustrating, but now that my skin is getting more mature, acne is becoming just one of the skin problems I’m facing. Over the last few years especially, I’ve noticed my skin tone is starting to get more and more uneven and it drives me absolutely crazy. Small dark spots I never had before are appearing on my cheeks and lighter splotches cover my chin. Top that off with a few very irritating scars from those monthly breakouts and the early wrinkles that women in their 30s tend to face and I am definitely not showing off my dream complexion!

So when Olay released a new tone correcting skincare line, I was intrigued. The Olay Regenerist Luminous skincare line has been shown to brighten skin’s appearance after just one use and to diminish the appearance of dark spots and discolouration after eight weeks. I received a few of the products to test out and over the next eight weeks, I’ll be using them twice daily to see what kind of difference they make to my skin tone. I was especially happy to see that the line included Dark Circle Correcting HydraSwirl. Staying up too late at night often leaves me with heavy circles under my eyes, and one of the scars that annoys me so much is right under my eye as well. Brightening up my eye area is very much a priority for me!

I have to admit, I’m always a little nervous about trying a new skincare line since some products seem to make me break out a bit, but I’ve used Olay products for years and never had an issue, so I was fairly confident these new Olay products would be kind to my skin as well. Starting a new skincare regimen is always fun, but with my specific skincare concerns, I’m especially excited to give these products an eight-week trial run. While I use foundation right now to even out my skin, even the best foundation can’t cover my red acne scars on my nose and cheeks. I can’t wait to see if the Olay Regenerist Luminous collection helps to lighten the appearance of the scars and finally make them less noticeable!

In my opinion, uneven skin tone is one of the most frustrating skin issues a woman can face, but I had pretty much resigned myself to believing that it was just a sign of getting older I couldn’t do anything to correct. But the Olay Regenerist Luminous skincare regime has given me hope that I may just be able to refresh the look of my skin and get the smooth, even skin tone that I miss from my youth. Now it’s time to see what kind of transformation my face experiences with Olay Regenerist Luminous!

Olay Regenerist Luminous brings you a complete regime to brighten your skin step-by-step.

Step 1: Olay Regenerist Luminous Brightening Cream Cleanser’s creamy formula instantly illuminates skin and leaves it feeling smooth, conditioned and even textured.

Step 2: Recapture healthy-looking, youthful luminosity with Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream. You’ll feel intense hydration immediately, and see visibly younger-looking skin in 2 weeks and more even skin tone in 8 weeks.

Step 3: Luminous Dark Circle Correcting HydraSwirl uses a distinctive dual-swirl formula with a gel to hydrate and a cream to instantly reduce the appearance of dark circles.

    I can’t believe how much my skin has changed as I age! I find it has really started to lose moisture a lot more than it ever did and I find I’m using way more moisturizers than ever!

  31. Anne Taylor says:

    You are a natural beauty! I’ve been using olay products for years! Thanks for the info!

  32. Christy Martin says:

    I would love to try this. I am a fan of “feeling moisturized” and some of these newer products tend to feel sticky going on and a bit tight after being absorbed. I would love to try some little sample packets first.
