NEW Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream

NEW Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream, 50g, SGD59.90

I really want to hold this purchase till December when I visit Hong Kong, because I know that it is going to be much cheaper there. But after hearing so much raves about this product, whether on TV or online, I cannot hold myself longer and went ahead with the purchase.

This cream is really expensive~ It's totally overpriced in Singapore! It retails at SGD59.90 here, can be found in normal drugstores like Watson's and Guardian. I happened to be at Raffles City last Saturday, and they were having 20% off these. I visited the Taiwan Olay website, and found out that it's only retailing at NT990 there (equivalent to approx SGD42)! Even though I got this at SGD47.92 with the 20% off, I still find it a total rip off, bearing in mind that this is the discounted price. Oh well! Since I can't wait, I guess I should really stop complaining =)

This cream claims to outperform the world's most expensive creams, even the $500 one, based on an European independent research institute's hydration test of several $100+ creams in 2008.

This is what the cream promises to do (after 4 weeks of use):
1) Firm the appearance of sagging-prone areas, which are around the eyes, jaw line and neck.
2) Reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles
3) Restore elasticity and suppleness of the skin

Hmmm... so... I conclude that this cream is like an anti-aging cream, preventing, as well as reducing the signs of aging.

High class looking red jar packaging

Gel-cream texture, lightly fragranced

I consider the texture of this cream to be like gel-cream. It's not really very rich, has a refreshing feel upon application (therefore like a gel), but also moisturising (therefore like a cream). It absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving it plump and hydrated. I am not sure about the firming part yet, since I have only used it once (tonight). I will update after a few more weeks of use!

The cream has a light floral scent, which I am totally OK with. I like the scent better then the Pristine White Radiance Essence.

Please be back to check for any updates of the cream =D
I am going to try film my Shu Uemura Florescent Inspired Look tomorrow, hopefully it will go well!

Hahhaaaa Hazel!! Hmmm good question =D I am approaching 30... so I guess I start to panic a little, so I have been using anti-aging creams, to get rid of lines that I see on my face now, that I didn't see them there before ^^"

I'm looking forward to your future review. I haven't used drugstore skincare items in a long, long time. I used to totally like Olay's line though.

Anti Aging Hormones and additions. An anti aging pill would be wonderful as the majority of these additions produce hormones that aids in anti aging.
