Not too long ago, I thought this line of Olay might be for more mature skin and I thought it's not for me. So I just totally skipped it.
Then when I travelled back to Hong Kong for a few times last year, I kept seeing this on local TV commercials... Is it really that good?
It happens that for last month's Costco coupons there is a $7.50 off for Olay Regenerist's twin packs items that includes this cream or their serum. And it was after the harsh and dry winter that I realized there are increasing noticeable fine lines under my eyes. So, I decided give it a try. Final cost for this twin pack is roughly $30 for 2 full size micro-sculpting cream, not a bad deal as a single item may cost up to $25 in CVS.
Prior to purchase, I did my research online and I found out this cream has been named "a poor man's La Mer"... interesting!! Maybe it does really give good results? And the other thing I read is it's too oily for combination skin and may cause break outs. The added fragrance in this cream has also been reported to be very strong as well.
So what do I think?
Cased inside a luxurious red little jar, I think the packaging is quite sleek and it looks expensive :)
The cream itself is not thick at all, actually quite easy to spread and to me it feels like a day lotion kind of texture.
The cream itself is absorb easily into my skin.
The fragrance is not that strong at all, and compared to my Jill Stuart eyeshadows, it's on the lighter side. But if I need to describe the scent of this fragrance, it smells like some cheap toilet freshener scent... just very faintly...
But I am pleased with how my face feels after I smooth it out on face. My face instantly feels smooth after the first application. Prior to using micro-sculpting cream, I have been using Kose Sekkisei Supreme Lotion II which its creaminess works well in the winter time but it's starting to feel greasy on me, particularly the next morning when I wake up, as the weather is gradually warming up. Micro-sculpting cream, on the other hand, gives my face a smooth and non-greasy feeling overnight.
So far I like it, but I need to use it for a few more weeks and see if the firming and fine line reduction works. I will be back to report on it later :)
