I have been a big fan of Olay skincare since one day inÂ 2007Â when I was strapped for cash and headed in to Priceline for a beauty bargain. That’s when Olay caught my eye – itÂ has beenÂ love ever since!Â A big fan of anti-ageing skincare with proven results, I was thrilled to find out Olay launched a new anti-age line in February.Â Olay Professional Pro-X line comes in an anti-aging starter kit that includesÂ Age Protection Lotion with SPF15 (your day cream), Wrinkle Smoothing Cream for night-time nourishing, and Eye Restoration Complex… and it’s yours for only AU$99.00.
Olay Professional Pro-X Eye Restoration Complex is a hydrating eye cream that is ideal for use day and night. A little spreads a long way so go easy on the product. I love the fact that the skin aroundÂ my eyes feel nice and firm and alsoÂ very soft and smooth to the touch.Â However, IÂ admit that I have sensitive eyes and dare say using this has leftÂ my peepersÂ feeling a bit puffier than normal and slightly irritated – but lack of sleep could also be a contributing factor! The packaging is very classy, it stands out and the nozzle with screw lid is very easy to use. The plastic tube is perfect for that overnight bag too.
Olay Professional Pro-X Age Protection Lotion with SPF15 has left my skin feeling soft, protected and hydrated. Designed to hydrate, protect from sun damage and other anti-aging factors, Pro-X Age Protection Lotion has proven its worth to me already. Before using this, I was mixing my moisturiser with my face block but now I can save time by using the one nifty product. The pump is excellent because it is very sensitive which means you can pump out as little or as much as you need to. I like to use one to two pumps for my face and neck (TIP: always remember your decollete), but itÂ is up to the user.Â Pro-X Age Protection Lotion absorbs into myÂ skin with ease and does not leave a shiny or sticky feel. The consistency is lightweight, making it perfect for the hotter seasons and for all skint ypes (except for those who are excessively oily).
Olay Professional Pro-X Wrinkle Smoothing Cream is going to be a very popular night cream.Â It aims to protect and repair skin while weÂ get ourÂ beauty sleep, and from my experience, Pro-X Wrinkle Smoothing Cream does just that. I love the consistency and like Pro-X Age Protection Lotion, the formula absorbs in to my skin with ease. It has a smoothing effect and while I worry about getting deep whiteheads under the skin’s surface from products too hydrating, Pro-X Wrinkle Smoothing Cream was excellent because it kept the condition of my skin at optimal condition without packing in too much hydration in one punch. One thing I do not fancy about the cream is that is comes in a jar and I prefer a more hygienic approach but due to the creamy nature of the formula it is best presented in a jar.
Beauty Experts from The Cosmetics Cop Beautypedia say: “To Olay’s credit their claims for their moisturiser are accurate: it smoothes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving skin’s texture. What holds it back is the jar packaging.”
