Olay Regenerist Targeted Tone Enhancer Review

Olay regenerist targeted tone enhancer review:

Hello lovelies,

The best part about Olay regenerist is:

No Hydroquinone. No Kojic Acid. No Licorice or Bearberry Extract.

Even though it is a target tone enhancer.

However, very high on the ingredient list (#3 after Water and Glycerine) is Niacinimide (Vitamin B3). According to Dr. Zoe Diana Draelos, noted ant aging dermatologist and author of the textbook “Cosmetics in Dermatology”, Niacinimide has several skin ant aging effects.

Niacinimide suppresses UVB damage enhances anti-cancer properties of keratinocytes (the cells which produce new skin cells) and is an exfoliating agent.

So Niacinimide acts in three positive ways: exfoliating dead surface cells; protecting from future UVB damage; and promoting the production of healthy new cells.

In Dr. Draelos’ opinion, “Many new, lesser known vitamins may become part of topical formulations in the future.”
Olay says, “Olay Regenerist Targeted Tone Enhancer uses an exclusive amino-peptide complex combined with Pro-Retinol to renew the outer layer of your skin for a more youthful brightness. It allows you to target damaged cells to diminish the appearance of age spots and discoloration without drastic measures.”

My take:

I got this Olay 1 oz tube about a year back. I got a lot of Olay products from eBay for my maa, and this was a part of it. It included a lot of products from the Olay regenerist range.
I have been using this for the past 2 weeks to review it .My maa used it earlier but she had no proper verdict about it so I wanted to try it myself.
This product even though it has fascinating ingredients did nothing for my skin at all. It is non greasy and non oily but it is just a waste. Neither did it work on my hyperpigemenetation nor on my acne scars.

2 weeks and I have noticed no evening out on my skin and nothing else. I have deep red scars of acne on my skin and an uneven skin tone .if anyone of you has trying that would help diminish those and work on both red and brown marks please comment below and help me out.

I am totally sick of these stubborn spots.

Getting back to the cream it does not resolve any issue and it was even expensive for the price it came.25 dollars.
And it has been a waste.

Pros and cons:

  1. :(( :(( :(( :(( sad it didnt work …. i was hoping it would have worked… i too suffer from acne and acne marks…
    my dermat sugguest me chemical peeling .. but i dont want to go for tht treatment just yet

    1. Do you still breakout?
      I want to get dermatologist intervention on my acne scars… but I’m scared I’ll just break out again and get caught in a vicious cycle… ugh :yuck:

      1. yes yes i still breakout … one acne comes n i tend to it …only to find nxt day other one pops out … i m stayin away from makeup since past few months … have tried every face wash and toners… all dissappointing . . . no results

  2. hey Raunak, sad it dint work …knowing the regenerist line from Olay, its super popular and rated very high by Marie Claire….hey try the home made besan, chandan, lemon ingredients pack, that will take time but will work …. this is really disappointing to know from such a renowned brand…hows ur CTM routine ???

  3. Ohhh so sad it not worked for u :struggle:

    Try Oriflame Optimal Even Out Day cream with SPF20…it worked for my sis n frnd :mirror: :mirror:
    visible reduction in dark spots and blemishes :preen:

  4. Aying…it sounded so promising Ranaq….but no use na…..I read your Nair hair reduction wala post…I thougt I had commented, but didn’t….Nair one you described is really good by your review…how I wish it was available in India…I want nair products in India :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa:

  5. Olay products have always been eye-catching and promising but never lives up to it..Its expensive and does nothing good.. :pissedoff:
    Acne scars are also caused due to facewashes high in chemicals..try using a Ph balancing creme cleanser instead of the gel facewashes.
    For acne scars you can use mederma..its takes time but results are good and long-lasting.
    Check for dandruff which also leads to acne.
    Try changing your pillow covers daily because they also cause acne.
    Hope this works for you.. :)) tc

  6. Ohh thats bad to hear, its really frustrating to see hyperpigmentation creams rarely work, i have brown spots, but they are these days diminishing, :yahoo: and about acne, use paste of cinnamon and lemon,and 1 drop honey, it works really well, gives burning sensation if you donot add honey, also drink cinnamon tea, brew cinnamon in water, add honey in it and drink, it gives nice glow and helps to cleanse system,also have neem tablets, or neem leaves if accessible !!, hope this helps !! :))

  7. Too bad it didn’t work FG. I’ve been using home remedies for months now on my face and it has helped. I use a mix of multani mitti+neem powder+orange peel powder+rose petal powder+sandalwood powder. I’ve just mixed it all and kept it in a small jar on my table and I apply it in the morning everyday.

  8. use cucumber and lemon juice …it surely works…in 1 week u will see the result….tried and tested by me :waytogo: :thumbsup: :preen:

  9. Awww this is so bad such well-known brand dint work for you.
    You should really try on some good skin care products for the scars and pigmentation.
    For my pigmentation, Clinique Even tone skin range worked best. :victory2: :victory2:

  10. rids and devie ,yes even i have an active breakout almost every 2nd day.not only its ugly but its painful
    am so fed up :yikes:

  11. akhila yes even i had heard of it highly its a waste but

    i am using no moisturiser,lacto calamine
    tea tree toner from fab
    and netrogena face wash
    nothing works

    and home made remedies too.
    i apply a pack almost everyday else my face becomes oily like a tawa
    the acne is painful
    worst part :shutmouth: :shutmouth: :shutmouth: :shutmouth:

    1. Rauni, I will try for red sandalwood here in Hyd, we shd b able to get that somewer if I find it will let you know and send it across to you….this is horrible to know that you break out every second day, I have gone thru and goin thru that pain….but I will suggest you one more remedy, pls dont laugh, it worked for me…and my face is much clear “TOUCHWOOD” than before, try washing your face with a basic soap, something wich keeps infection at bay, for ex: dettol soap, savlon soap, lifebuoy soap or even cinthol works wonders….I tried and found it to be good, wash your face atleast two times in the day (morning and evening) and then apply lacto and leave it….try this for a week’s time and am sure, u will see some diff and also dont apply face packs every day, a lot of IMBB readers have told me and I follow that, I dont apply face packs daily nor do I scrub …. let me know if you find this sane enuf to try …. take care girl, you will be alright soon…. :puchhi:

  12. tap swain the tea is a lovely idea.i have alot of green tea and used to use clove oil in my packs which got over :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    and if it doesnt sound too gross ive had so much blood shed from them too :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa:

  17. I hate when such things happen… The brand name and price tag often evoke lot of hope, only providing disappointment later!!!! :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa:

  18. hello.i think u should consult dermatologist.me to use to suffer from this kind of breakout.i took treatment nearly for 6 months.now my skin is clear.i get very few breakouts now.

  19. Actually i have wrinkles under eye, i applied (pudina+lemon) but no result.
