Olay has over twenty patents and contributes a reasonable part of it’s $2 billion in revenue on research and development. The products are very innovative and constantly pushing the boundaries. For the first part of the review, we have reviewed Olay Regenerist, Professional Pro x Cleaning System (also know as Olay Face Brush) and for the second part we will review 7 Effects, Total Effects and Definity.

Olay Regenerist Review

We have evaluated Olay Regenerist Regenerating Serum, Olay Regenerist Recovery Cream and Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Serum. The product claims to firm lax skin areas including the jaw lines and smooth the skin while restoring collagen and elasticity. It can be used on any skin type. Olay Regenerist Ingredients include Niacinamide, amino-peptide, B3 complex, Vitamin D5 and Pentapeptide. The product is very innovative and contains high concentration of active ingredients. Olay Regenerist represents good value for money and we recommend it.

Olay Pro X Advanced Cleansing System Review

The Olay Pro x claims to  to clean 6 times better than basic cleansing and that it is as effective is as effective as a system sold by skin professionals for nearly $200. Given the products is priced around $20, we were really keen to find out if it was as effective. We can assume by other systems they are reffering to cleansing systems like Clarisonic Mia.  It is recommended that you use the The Pro-X Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser while cleansing. Olay Pro X Cleansing System contains brushes to get you started but you’ll need to buy new brushes every 3 months. The system is not sonic like the Clarisonic but it does a good enough job to exfoliate the skin.

    I’m 32 years old, work-at-home mommy. I have a lot on my plate and so in spite of being at home, I don’t get much time to pamper and take care of myself. When I noticed a few signs of aging, I immediately thought of Olay. That’s the name I remembered from the Television commercials. The very next day I bought myself a bottle of Olay total effects 7-in-1 cream. I used it for a month and could see visibly younger-looking skin. It helped to renew my skin and reduced the fine lines and wrinkles. Impressed by the effect, I bought Olay pro-X advanced cleansing system and the Olay moisturizer.

      I have really sensitive skin and every cream i use i brake out…..? Do you have the same problem? Do you really recommend it for those types of faces?

  2. Brenda

    I love oil of olay serum been using for years under my makeup now my twin daughter use it also from 17 now 25, I would love to know how I could get coupons I have been test and used equate knock off of serum, but not quite the same, please need coupons to be true.

  3. I have been using Oil of Olay moisturizer since I was 15 and I am about to turn 50. People always comment that I don’t look my age and guess on adverage 15 years younger. Thanks Olay, 50 will never look so good! Looking forward to it. Although my kindergarten students guess 100. Glass is half full in that they’re half right- It’s just not the right half.

  4. Suchi Baines

    I am nearly 58, been using oil of olay total effect day moisturiser, cleanser, toner and regenerist eye liftng serum. Is that the best facial regime for me. Please advice

  5. Imelda

    Like Olay products, and they seem to work well. Just got the total effects range, serum, day with serum, and night. One little secret my beautician gave me that has made a huge difference to hydration factor is to put all serums and creams onto a slightly damp (clean) face and neck for a little extra moisture. the cream holds the water in= big difference.

  6. Kiara

    I saw the advertisements of Olay and then read some Olay reviews. It seems it’s a globally accepted brand. I have used Touch of sun by Olay and Oil of Olay moisturizer. Great products! They do just as they say. I also bought the Olay cleansing brush system based on its reviews. It claims to lessen the signs of aging. I don’t know where I’m going wrong. I have been using it since the past three months but I don’t see any visible changes. Can someone please guide me how to use it?

  7. Ashley

    Olay reviews from various users show that it is a favorite anti aging product of women across the globe. Olay regenerist wrinkle roller is one of the best products from the Olay range. It has made many women say goodbye to their wrinkles without any hassles. Olay regenerating serum is another great product. It helps to firm the skin and also restores the collagen and elasticity of the skin. Reviews show that Olay definity illuminating cream cleanser illuminates the skin by penetrating deep into the skin’s surface and hydrating it.

  8. ivysoxa

    Hi! Can i use both regenerist micro sculpting cream and olay total effects spf 15 at one time since micro sculpting has no sunscreen protection?

  9. Donna

    My skin used to glow during pregnancy and my face also looked fuller. It even had a pinkish tinge. Post-pregnancy, my skin changed entirely. Not only did it loose the glow, I could also see some wrinkles. It was so awful. Stretch marks on my tummy and wrinkles on my face! I felt disgusting. I read Olay regenerist wrinkle roller reviews. They were pretty convincing. I heard a lot of Olay reviews from friends who were using it since a long time. Even the consumer reviews for oil of Olay regenerist were very good. I decided to give it a try. I could not look so ugly and go out with my baby. My skin did not show much change till a long time. Just when I had lost all hope, it started getting clearer. I also read Olay definity illuminating cream cleanser reviews. I have been using it since two months. I’m happy with the way my skin looks. I can go anywhere I want to!

      I have light rosacea that I keep under control with metrocream. For two weeks I have been using olay regenerist serum and my skin looks great. My skin is very sensitive so I was nervous to use this on my rosacea areas but I’m glad I tried it. No irritation or redness. I use metrocream at night and the serum under my makeup during the day. Great product so far.

  10. Alyssa

    I have been using olay regenerist for years. It is my favorite moisturize. Perfect for dry skin. However I also recently heard about Olay pro-x and considering upgrading to the new range. Is this a superior product to the original olay moisturizer? Does it repair wrinkles?

  11. Olay

    Tried so many different products and always end up coming back to Olay. I highly recommend Olay 7 in 1. It just as good as products that are double the price. Each bottle lasts around 4 months. It will make your skin feel soft when you wake up in the morning. Try not using it one night and you will see how rough your skin is in comparison.

  12. Esther

    Been using olay products for two decades.
    They get better every few years.
    Last year I was using olay regenerist.
    This year I am using pro-x and works better.

  13. Sienna

    Prior to buying Olay Pro X I read all the reviews about how amazing the products are but I also prefer Olay Regenerist. It really works better as a moisturizer. When I use Pro X my face feels dry afterwards. Definitely stick with regenerist if you have dry skin as Pro X is not as moisturizing.

  14. Wendy

    I’ve been using Olay Pro x it for approximately 3 weeks and it as really improved my face. Of the wrinkles are still there but my skin just looks more radiant and I have been asked if I have had something done. For under $20, it really is a good skin care. I trust P & G products have been tested probably and safe to use.

  15. Julie

    Olay Regenerist is great stuff, don’t expect major miracles but it will make your skin have a noticeable clearer if you continue using it. It’s pretty light and is excellent for oily skin types. I have fine lines and wrinkles but they are small enough to conceal with a good concealer and foundation.

      Very pleased with Olay products but one thing most of us over look is our diet. Are we hydrated? Are we eating healthy? Do we take vitamins etc… Everyone’s skin reacts different to different things but some don’t see a big difference no matter what product they use because they eat junk and think the skin product will be the miracle. I don’t mean to preach but we do need to find a balance so we can look and feel our best…good luck to all of you!

  16. Donna-marie

    I decided to try Olay Regenerist even though I have good skin I started to develop some wrinkles around my eyes. I have always seen Olay products in the stores and never thought I would need to use a wrinkle cream myself. I am happy with Olay Regenerist and will stick with it. It is hard to sell if it is working but I like the moisturizing factor.

  17. Sandy

    Olay Regenerist is a great daily moisturizer! I would stay away from Olay Pro X if you have sensitive skin as it is a clinical grade product that might cause irritation. If you have been using Olay and are happy why would you want to try something that has been working? I am a little old fashioned but why change something that already works? Younglings change their everything so quickly, their jobs, their cars and their partners.

  18. Hilda

    Olay reviews always seem positive but I am still hesitant to try because I am happy with my current Moisturizer. This new Pro X looks very interesting. I always want to try clinical skin care brands but hate the pushy sales tactics at the med spa. Is Pro X really that good or should I just try Regenerist first?

  19. Martin

    Yesterday I bought Olay Regenerist and started using it this morning. So far I find the product to be very hydrating and I think I will continue using it. This is wonderful stuff. It does not make my skin sting and it seems to absorb quickly so you do not have to wait around before you can apply your foundation.

  20. Summer

    I would like to start using Olay Regenerist but have also heard about the Pro X range but not sure if it is worth spending more on this. I was using Oil of Olay ten years ago and that was quite nice but things have changed now. I need a good moisturizer that does everything.

  21. Erin

    I just started using Olay Regenerist about a month ago. So far so good. No irritating. Looks like a good moisturizing. l ignore all the anti aging stuff but I noticed less wrinkles and improved skin texture and quality.

  22. Dazy

    I am 44 and have been using Olay Regenerist because it does everything in one cream. I like it and I have tried lots of different things over the past 10 years.

  23. Olay Reviews

    As I was reading the top part of your review about Olay Regenerist, I also realized Olay is very good value for money since some of those ingredients are found in more expensive moisturizers. Plus I know P & G is a very big company and would obviously spend big bucks on research. How can a smaller brand even compete with Olay when they cant spend any bucks on research? What you’re saying makes sense so I will stick with using Olay for hopefully the next ten years.

  24. Mina

    Olay Regenerist Review is a nice product but it finished quickly if you are not careful. They should make it in a pump so it doesn’t get wrecked from the air and you can control how much to use.

    Has anybody tried the pro x range? Is it good? Is it worth the extra price tag?

  25. admin

    Thanks for sharing your reviews of Olay
    Olay is the best value skin care product we have come across and recommend it for people who are fighting moderate signs of aging and dryness. The formulas are very innovative the manufacturer is constantly inventing new formulas and pushing them out with aggressive timetables. I’ve recommended Olay Regenerist and Pro X to my friends and family.

  26. Mariah

    Olay Regenerist fights all 7 signs of aging and is very good value for money. I have seen some creams in sephora for $200+. Oh my god. How can you charge $200 for a cream. Stick with Olay. I agree about keeping jobs in the USA as well.

  27. Indiana

    Olay facial brush is just as good as the one from clarisonic and much cheaper. I also use their creams which targets all the signs of aging. There is no need to spend $200 on a cream when the Olay Regenerist does the same or even in some instances a better job. Thanks for the review as it just confirmed what I always thought about Olay.

  28. Kenzie

    I started using Olay Regenerist 4 years ago and it is the best moisturizer I have ever tried. It doesnt just moisturize thhough, it fights all sevel signs of aging. Instead of having to use several differenet skin care products you just need to use one product with Oiil of Olay. I’ve tried different moisturizers but the Olay one has worked well for me since I first started using it. If I went to another brand I would probably break out and get blotches. I havent tried the Pro x yet but I will try those products based on your review. I havent tried the Definity or seven effects but I think the 7 in 1 is the Regenerist.

    Does anybody know where you can get Olay coupons?

  29. Deinze

    Should I try Olay Regenerist or Olay Pro X?
    There is not a big price different but not sure which one is better for aging and wrinkles.
