FEEDBACK
PInkyPrIss Review: This silky, silicone based serum effortlessly glides across my face for easy spread-ability, while absorbing quickly. Immediately, I noticed my skin was a little more radiant, making my complexion appear more youthful-looking. Once applied, you are left with a soft, velvety finish that lasts all day. Most users reported seeing results in a week when using twice a day. After my first week I noticed my smile lines had softened a bit. This ultra-lightweight, hydrating formula improved my skin's texture by evening out my skin tone and minimizing fine lines. After two weeks, my skin seemed bouncier, with improved elasticity. Users say this serum makes a great makeup primer, as it creates a smooth surface for makeup to adhere to and keeps both your makeup and skin looking fresh all day.

MORE INFORMATION

Consumersearch.com says,
“Safe for face, eyes. The most credible experts say Olay Regenerist Regenerating Serum, Fragrance Free, is just as appropriate for use around the eyes as expensive eye creams. In fact, its ingredients are nearly identical to those found in Olay's Eye Lifting Serum, including several state­-of­-the­-art compounds that help skin stay hydrated, retain its natural elasticity and fight early signs of aging.” “The main difference between the two is that the eye serum contains light-­diffusing particles to help conceal dark circles and other flaws, but the effect is purely cosmetic.”
