Hellooo IMBBians 😀
How are you all? How is the week coming along? Mine has been a boring one! I was so excited in the beginning with all those holidays, but after a while, you just get bored, don’t you? 😛 Too much of something is always bad! Anyway, let me stop boring you and get down to today’s product review 😛 It is Olay Age Defying Firm and Lift Day Cream. Okay, before you start thinking if I use them at such an early age, the answer is NO! Today’s review is going to be about my mum’s and aunt’s experience with this cream. They both have different skin types – my mum has clear and dry skin while my aunt has clear oily skin. So, today’s review is going to based on what they felt after using it for a month.
Rs. 800 approximately for 50 ml.
The Olay Age Defying range offers simple anti-aging solutions at an affordable price. The range contains ingredients to help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles and provide moisturisation for younger-looking skin. Use our products every day and you’ll look like you on a good day, every day. This day cream with vitamins (B3,E), Pro vitamin B5, ceramides and green tea extract is designed to help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, while also firming the feel of your skin.
My Experience with Olay Age Defying Firm and Lift Day Cream:
Texture: The texture of this day cream is neither too runny nor too thick. It is just the right consistency and super creamy. It actually feels like butter when you scoop it out and apply. The cream isn’t oily- it actually gives a dewy effect on application.
My mum has used variants of Olay anti-aging creams and completely loves them! But THIS? She hates it! Let me tell you that Olay has some amazing anti-aging creams, but this has been the worst for my mum! The first time she used this, she couldn’t figure out if it’s working or not. But after continuous usage, she started having allergies. First she thought the allergies might be because she did not use them on a regular basis. So, she started using the product on a daily basis after that – what did it do to her skin? It just worsened! Her under eye area started swelling and her whole face started swelling after that. Olay has taken Age Defying and anti-wrinkle so seriously that they swell up the entire face to reduce the visibility of wrinkles! *shock* Since my mum’s skin type is dry, it did not do anything to moisturize her skin. As a matter of fact, her face started itching with allergies because of this! *scared* It’s been a horrible experience with this one for her, she has already tossed it away to the dustbin!
My Aunt’s Take on Olay Age Defying Firm and Lift Day Cream:
So as I said, my aunt has clear skin and her skin type is oily. She used it religiously for a month and this is what she told me. The cream made her skin smooth and soft. She says it did not do anything to reduce her wrinkles, but it just gave her a fresh-looking face throughout the day. This hasn’t reacted on my aunt like how it reacted on my mum. No itching or allergies. Let me tell you that my aunt’s skin is super oily and she says this doesn’t accentuate the oiliness more. In fact, she feels it keeps the extreme oiliness at bay. On the whole, it turned out to be a very average product for her.
Pros of Olay Age Defying Firm and Lift Day Cream:
- Works well for oily skin, but doesn’t serve the purpose of its use.
Cons of Olay Age Defying Firm and Lift Day Cream:
- Doesn’t moisturize.
- Did not justify age defying and anti-wrinkle claims.
- Worsens dry skin condition.
- Caused swelling and constant itching.
- Allergies! Beware! *scared*
- More cons than pros. *smack*
Would I Repurchase Olay Age Defying Firm and Lift Day Cream?
Will I have to say anything here? My mum says “Hell No!” My aunt says “There are products which work better than this particular one so I wouldn’t waste money on this.” I would not recommend it unless you are really daring and want to give it a try *scared*
2/5 (since it worked averagely for my aunt) *smack*
Anyway, I want to share with you all a mini haul I did after reading such positive reviews on IMBB. 😛 As you all know, an online shopping site had a super awesome sale going on and after looking at Rati’s swatches of Colorbar Crème Touch lipsticks- I HAD TO TRY IT! *woot* *woot* I bought four variants out of which three have already been reviewed and one I will review it soon 😀 Thank you IMBB for guiding me along with the reviews- all the lipsticks turned out to be super awesome as the reviews 😀 And the colors also turned out to be exactly like in the swatches! *happydance* These are what I picked!
