Just over a month ago I bought Olay Anti – Wrinkle Firm and Lift Night Cream. It promised on the package that I would see a difference in just 28 days. I never buy expensive creams or makeup but this was on offer for less than £7 so after not long having my 2nd child and feeling a bit of an ‘old wreck’ I thought I would give it a try.
Size – 50ml tub (and have used just under half of it in a month, which to me is good value for money.)
Cost – Under £7
Odour – No chemical odour like I thought it would have, it’s nicely scented and not overbearing for a night cream.
Consistency – Not too thick, in fact for a night cream it’s one of the smoothest I’ve had.
To tackle some of (the many) smaller wrinkles under my eyes so I concentrated application in this area. I also get quite puffy under the eyes and was hoping it would alleviate some of this.
To achieve a clear comparison the first image on the left is before I started to use the cream and the image on the right is 28 days after using the cream.
I’ve added an arrow on the before image where I feel there has been an obvious improvement. The two definite wrinkles seem to have almost disappeared. I took the images with the same camera in the same position under the same light / settings and can promise I do not even have photoshop installed!
I was pleasantly surprised as to be honest I’ve always thought these things were a gimmick, but there’s no denying that there is a clear improvement.
The second set of images below you can see the whole area around and below the eyes generally appears tighter and fresher. The arrow is pointing to where some thin downward wrinkles were, which now seem to have been ironed out and the slight puffiness has all but gone.
I previously have not been convinced by any of these types of creams but I can’t deny that this has made a difference. It might not be that noticeable to other people, but because I can see the difference it has convinced me to carry on using the cream and hopefully get even more improvement the more I use it. My skin appears more hydrated and there’s definitely more ‘lift’ under the eye area.
What do you think? Do you agree? Do you use this type of product and if so what is your experience?
