Hi my beautiful IMBB friends,
Well, this is my first review on IMBB and I am super excited – yaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy!!!!!! I am an ardent fan of IMBB I must say. As soon as I think of buying anything new, the very first thing that I do is to check for its review on IMBB. It has been very helpful and you guys are doing an amazing job! Today, I am reviewing Olay White Radiance Fairness Eye Brightening Serum. I am a great fan of Olay products since 5 years. Olay products never break my extra sensitive skin at all and I love most of their products. It isn’t easily available here where I reside. I make my brother who stays abroad to get tons of Olay products for me whenever he comes home 😛 It’s been pretty long since I have been looking forward to buy something for my under eye area though it’s not a major problem area for me and I thought why not give Olay a try, and that’s how I got this product – shipped all the way from abroad!
Rs. 899 for 15 gm.
Directions For Use:
Apply white radiance fairness eye brightening serum every morning and night on cleansed skin. Place small dots all around the eye area and smooth until thoroughly absorbed.
My Take on Olay White Radiance Fairness Eye Brightening Serum:
This serum comes in a very cute packaging. It’s very travel friendly in the sense that it doesn’t take much space in the bag. This serum has niacinamide as its active ingredient. Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3. No, I am not an expert in identifying forms of vitamins. I saw this in an anti-aging product of Olay, which my mom uses. I think it’s the key ingredient in most anti-aging products. I also read that it’s good for skin lightening, wrinkles, acne, etc. It has a semi creamy consistency which blends pretty well into the skin. The liquid inside is of white color. It has a very nice smell which I really like. You have to be very careful not to press the tube too hard and make a mess with large quantity in your fingertips. You need only a tiny pea-sized amount to cover the area.
On application, it doesn’t get absorbed very fast into the skin. After application, you can still feel it under the eyes. It does give a pretty good moisturizing effect. I have been using it for over 5 months now. I think the product does very little considering it’s a “brightening serum.” I did not notice any major brightness or any effect on fine lines under the eye area. It doesn’t give any “wow” results.
It is very moisturizing and if that is what you are looking for, this is a good choice. It does make the eyes less puffy in the morning. It didn’t do much to fade away the little darkness around my eyes. Being an Olay fan, this is a disappointment and I would say this is the first time an Olay product has not worked for me. I did expect it to be pretty good. I am using it now for moisturizing and would look for an eye serum which is pretty good in all aspects.
Pros of Olay White Radiance Fairness Eye Brightening Serum:
- Good packaging.
- Blends well.
- Easy to use.
- Travel friendly.
- Helps with puffiness of the eyes.
- Contains niacinamide and other antioxidants.
Cons of Olay White Radiance Fairness Eye Brightening Serum:
- Does not live up to the claims.
- Might not be available in India easily.
