No matter what your skin type, exfoliation can be a good thing. Exfoliation benefits dry skin by removing excess flakiness that can make skin look dull. It also benefits oily skin by clearing out the pores to prevent acne breakouts. And it benefits skin that is starting to show signs of aging by improving skin’s texture.
Well if you’re looking for younger looking skin, look no further than Olay Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir. This little exfoliation expert hydrates to resurface skin for tighter, smoother skin.
The formula contains glycolic acid (an alpha hydroxy acid) which is the exfoliating workhorse in the formula. It works to provide continuous, uninterrupted exfoliation while you sleep.
The formula is a lightweight gel that smoothes on very skin easily (actually, it feels like it just glides on). It does take a few minutes to completely absorb. Once absorbed, my skin felt comfortable and hydrated (you can apply a moisturizer over it if you need more hydration). The formula also contains glycerin, allantoin and grape seed extract which help to hydrate, protect and soothe the skin (I felt no stinging like I have with other peel treatments that I’ve tried).
The next morning I woke up to visibly smoother skin. And after a few days, my skin looked brighter and more radiant. In the morning, I made sure to wear a sunscreen (with an SPF of 15 or higher) as AHA-containing products may increase skin’s sensitivity to the sun.
Olay shared the clinical test results with us and we were quite impressed. In a 92 person study, they compared their formula with a dermatologists 30% glycolic acid chemical peel. And after Days, 3, 7 and 12 of use, women in the study agreed the Olay formula performed better than the dermatologist’s peel. Pretty amazing, huh?
