Olay Age Protect Anti-Ageing Cream Review

I have been for many years was happy with Olay's moisturizers when I was a teen. We all know that, the best way to prevent wrinkles is to stay out of the sun and use a best SPF protection that suits your skin, healthy lifestyle and a good skin care regimen. However, probably because of too many catchy commercials and ads, I've started to get this need to use age defying stuff to try to prevent what is coming.

So I decided it’s about time I added an anti ageing product to my skin care regimen. I have liked Olay's products, so I decided to pick up Olay's Age Protect. 


So lets see what's the product claims: Olay Age Protect Anti-ageing cream claims lightens dark spots, reduces wrinkles, improves your skin tone.




Ingredients: Its formula contains Beta Hydroxy. 

Price: Rs. 125 for 18g

My experiences with Olay Age protect anti-ageing cream:
I used it as recommended, after one month of daily use, here is what I think: Olay Age Protect does work. But it's not magic; it doesn't reduce every wrinkle and age spot. But it makes your skin look BETTER than before, which is all we can really hope for, isn't it?



Pros:
1. This product absorbs fast and doesn't leave any greasy residue.
2. Skin tone did improve a little bit but not dramatically.
3. It did hydrate my skin very well.
4. Pores seem less obvious under my makeup. Good makeup base.
5. Reasonably priced for anti-aging range of products.

Cons:
1. I had some breakouts in my t-zone.

Recommendation:
Will recommend to those with normal to slightly dry skin.  But I won't advise those with acne-prone skin to use this.

Would I re-purchase?
No, it broke me out.

Rating: 4 out of 5

  1. I have tested many brands and came across none of them give results on particular problem but only good for over all nourishment of the skin. Can you suggest me something that can target my uneven skin tone ?

  2. Too bad it broke you out :(

    Sometimes, products with salicylic acid can purge you out first.

    Anyway, I'm from the Philippines. I noticed how we have a lot of similar skin care products in our markets. My Olay says "made in India"
