When Martin Waxman at Palette PR asked me if I was interested in trying Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream, I said sure. I thought it was a moisturizer and I was running low. Plus it has the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval.
The next day a nice package with a friendly note appeared on my doorstep with a regular-sized jar of the cream. I didn’t realize it was really more of a deep massage treatment to help tighten up sagging facial skin. There were detailed instructions about how to apply the product. What did I get myself into? I don’t have a lot of time to get ready for work in the morning so to add another 3-5 minutes to my routine was a minor inconvenience.
Well, I hadn’t really noticed whether or not my face was sagging but I felt a responsibility to give this product a proper try. For the first few days, I applied it religiously day and night. Then it became a night-only ritual. Now I’m using it in place of my regular moisturizer.
Did it tighten up the skin on my face and neck? To be honest, I should have taken before and after pics and let you decide. I can’t see a noticeable difference.
What I do know is my face was incredibly dry when I started using the product. I received it right in the middle of a cold snap and the strong winds and below-freezing temperatures weren’t forgiving. Now my skin looks fresh and well-nourished without any dry patches, not bad for a rich moisturizer with a suggested retail price of $35.
