Overview

Founded in the 1950s, Olay is an American skincare line and one of the top skincare retail brands in the world. The Regenerist product line was created for the anti-aging segment of the skincare industry and has received numerous accolades over the years. Olay's researchers have developed innovative and affordable products that rejuvenate skin's appearance and reduce the need for more drastic cosmetic work like chemical peels, laser resurfacing or surgery. Olay Regenerist Daily Regenerating Serum (Fragrance-Free) was formulated with an exclusive Olay amino-peptide + B3 complex and other proven anti-aging ingredients such as vitamin E, pro-vitamin B5, green tea extract, allantoin and glycerin. The serum works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while hydrating the skin to improve its texture and firmness.

You can purchase Olay Regenerist Daily Regenerating Serum in your local drugstore or online at sites like Amazon for under $20.

Product Report Card Grade

We give Olay Regenerist Daily Regenerating Serum (Fragrance-Free) a B+ because it is a good drugstore moisturizer that contains a number of beneficial ingredients including peptides and niacinamide. The serum is silicone-based, so it has a smooth, silky texture and won’t leave your face feeling greasy. We also love that it can double as a foundation primer to streamline your beauty routine. That said, we had to deduct points from its overall score because it isn’t a great anti-aging treatment despite the marketing claims.

Most recently, it was recognized by readers of Glamor Magazine as the "Best Wrinkle Fighter - From Drugstores" (2011) and by Allure Magazine as "Anti-Aging Reader's Choice" in its "Best of Beauty" issue (2011). If you aren't turned off by animal testing or questionable ingredients, this is a great anti-aging cream for the price.

Olay Regenerist Regenerating Serum
Review submitted: 2014-02-09
I have been using Olay brand skin care products for years. Olay has kept step with all of the new developments and discoveries in skin care and have been very proactive in getting these skin care solutions out into the market. I trust Olay implicitly and I love their product line. The Olay Regenerist Regenerating Serum is fantastic. I’m 52 years old and I’m starting to see wrinkles and fine lines on my face and neck. Since I started using this Serum, my deeper wrinkles (like the ones in my forehead) have diminished noticeably and the fine lines around my eyes just seem to almost disappear. It also leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and new. I have recently tried other more expensive products and none of them have the effect that Olay Regenerist does on my skin. I would recommend Olay products to any adult, and this product specifically, I would recommend to anyone over the age of 30. It makes such a significant difference with my skin, I want to share it with the world.
