We all know I have a thing for serums these days. Perhaps my motivation sparked from those fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots that I blame on sun damage, aging, and mom life. 😉 How did I ever go without serums in my skincare routine? My favorite part about serums is that I can layer them and tailor them to help me achieve my skincare hopes and dreams. It is so fun to look into different ingredients that can literally change my skin. I’m sure by now you’ve heard of retinol. In fact, it is the number one searched skin care ingredient on Google. If you’re serious about your skin chances are you’ve looked into retinol. Despite it’s popularity it also has some downsides including the price tag, skin irritation, and the time it takes to start seeing any sort of results.
I’ve been trying out the Olay Retinol 24 Serum for 30 days and today I’m excited to share my full Olay Retinol review.
Now before I get started on my review let me preface that I do not recommend using all of these at once. We all have different skincare routines, and I love that Olay created a product in a few different forms depending on what works best for you.
Olay Retinol 24 products include a night serum, a night eye cream, and a night moisturizer.
Olay Retinol 24 Review:
One of the things I was hoping to find in this serum is faster results than other retinol products I have tried. Who wants to use a product that takes months and months to see results? Not me!
After using this OLAY Retinol 24 serum for 30 days I can definitely see a difference in my skin. In fact, I honestly started seeing results much sooner than. Results I’ve noticed include brighter skin, improved texture, and more firm and plump skin. Can I get an Amen? Other benefits of using this serum include improvements in fine lines & wrinkles, smoothness, dark spots, and pores.
I apply the OLAY Retinal 24 serum at night after washing my face and before my moisturizer. It is slightly milky, and I fill up the dropper about half way. I rub this all over my face, and make sure to focus on my “problem” areas which include my forehead, crows feet, and smile lines. I feel like it’s working it’s magic as soon as I put it on… just the way I like it. There are no fragrances in this serum, which is a major plus. All I want are the ingredients that are going to help my skin and nothing else! The photo below gives you a good idea of the consistency.
Although I’m not using more than one Olay Retinol 24 product at a time, I did give the moisturizer and eye cream a try as well. The consistency of the eye cream is SO GOOD. If you’re really trying to target around your eyes then give this a try.
If you feel like you’re having a skin emergency, give Olay Retinol 24 products a try. I highly highly recommend them.
Let me know what you think!
