Olay is a solid skincare line that has many very well-formulated items. The
fact that most of Olay's products are on the affordable side (compared
with all the high-end products) shows that we don't have to spend a lot
of money on quality products.


Olay's Complete Care Night Enriched Cream has been my evening moisturizer for a couple of years, and I have recently switched from Olay's Multi-Radiance Daily Illuminating UV Fluid SPF 15 to Complete Care Daily Sensitive UV Fluid SPF15, also from Olay. (I will be featuring this product later on.) Today I am reviewing the
Regenerist Daily Regenerating Serum.

This serum has more of a gel texture than a watery consistency. (It is one of the thicker serum-type products that I have come across.) It creates a very silky
finish, which is largely down to the various silicone ingredients and the fact that cyclopentasiloxane (silicone) is the first ingredient on the list (before water and glycerine).

It has a very good mix of beneficial ingredients, such as carnosine (with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties), tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E, antioxidant), tocopherol (vitamin E, antioxidant), allantoin (anti-irritant), and
camellia sinensis (green tea, potential antioxidant for the skin).

Also included in this product is niacinamide (vitamin B3). Paula Begoun mentions that the serum contains approximately 2% to 3% niacinamide and that, in this amount, "it can increase the skin's ceramide and fatty acid content as well as have anti-inflammatory action"
(Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, April 2004, pages 88-93). (The three Olay products that I mentioned above also contain niacinamide.)
For more information on all the potential benefits of niacinamide, please refer to the entry in Paula Begoun's Cosmetic Ingredient Dictionary.

Overall, this can be a good product to be used under the moisturizer for those
with normal or dry skin or as a light-weight moisturizer for those with oily skin. For daytime, it can also work as a primer to help create a smooth texture for the skin in order to facilitate makeup application.
