Hello from an up-close and personal Camille 👋🏻 I’ve been so excited to share this selfie with you all, because it was taken on day 30 after using the Olay Regenerist Collagen Peptide 24 Moisturizer every day for 30 days. Because of the way this collagen moisturizer felt each time I applied it my face, I had a feeling it was going to do some real good things for my skin.
Olay Regenerist Collagen Peptide 24 Moisturizer Review
I used this moisturizer morning and night, simply fitting it into my AM/PM skincare routine as a last step. The consistency of Olay’s moisturizers are always my favorite, because they offer a perfect balance of feeling rich, but absorbing immediately into skin with no heaviness or residue. This collagen face cream is no different, it has that same luxurious feeling, while remaining one of the most affordable products in my skincare lineup. The way this moisturizer stands up next to my $80+ skincare will forever impress me.
Now, let’s talk about the science. While there are many products you can purchase that have collagen as an ingredient, it’s a molecule that is too big to penetrate skin, so it ends up remaining on the skin’s surface, where it’s benefits are limited. What separates the Olay Regenerist Collagen Peptide 24 Moisturizer from the rest is that it works smarter, because it contains Olay’s powerhouse peptide formula that features small molecules that actually penetrate the skin’s surface. This is why Olay always gets my vote-they actually use science to create their products and are transparent with their approach.
If you’re not familiar with peptides, they are essentially the building blocks of collagen and elastin. (so…VERY important). Our skin’s collagen production begins to decrease as early as age 20 and our existing collagen also begins to weaken, so using a topical peptide and collagen for the face helps to support our skin’s natural renewal process. The Olay Regenerist Collagen Peptide 24 Moisturizer is the best choice when it comes to this, because it has the highest concentrate of pentapeptide, which is a peptide comprised of five amino acids.
P.S. I tested this product out for 30 days to share my review with you, but I continue to use it and continue to feel and see that my skin is smoother and has more plump to it.
