This cream also is incredibly hydrating, primarily due to "an Olay-exclusive intracellular fortifier made up of hyaluronic acid... and hydrating glycerin." Now, hyaluronic acid is a pretty large molecule, but there is some literature about smaller bits of it, and if that's what is in this cream, no wonder it is soooooo incredible! That's strong stuff! It really holds in moisture. And glycerin, you should know by now, is a humectant.
The paperwork I was sent by Olay quoted a study they did:
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream significantly smoothed skin's surface after only 24 hours of treatment, with effects progressively increasing at two and four weeks.
Now, that sounds pretty good to me!
In separate studies, Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream was proven to hydrate skin cells better than several leading "super-creams" and outperform a leading prestige super cream in a blind test with over 200 women.
Once again, sounds pretty good.
Now, I've been using this cream every night for about 3 weeks or so now. What do I think? I really like this cream!
The cream is pretty thick, and it has a strong perfume smell that disappears quickly. I really like the perfume they used for the Regenerist line, it's very similar to Elizabeth Arden's 5th Avenue, which I wore nearly everyday during college! The cream soaks into skin quickly and does not interfere with application of makeup.
I don't have problems with sagging, lack of firmness or wrinkles (I'm only 30 and I've been an avid sunscreen user for over 10 years), but I did notice that with this cream, my skin is definitely well hydrated and radiant.
If you have been considering the Regenerist line, I really recommend this cream. If you don't need super hydration, it might not be the correct Regenerist Product for you though, so stay tuned this week as I'll be reviewing the lotion, serum, and deep hydration regenerating cream in addition to the lip product and eye lifting serum.
