Something I’ve definitely learned in my 30s is it’s allllll about the skincare game. You girls with me? To keep up with aging, retinol is one of the skincare products most highly recommended when it comes to helping with wrinkles and keeping skin bright and smooth. I personally started using retinol a few years ago (honestly, wish I started in my 20s), but Olay’s new Retinol24 collection featuring three products is kind of a game changer because not only does it work – it’s affordable YEA!
You girls know I’m all about finding budget-friendly swaps and the Olay Retinol24 collection is the perfect way to work retinol into your skincare routine for a fraction of the price I’ve previously paid for retinol. Below I’ll tell you a little more about the products, the results I’ve experienced and then a little more info on retinol in general.
Olay Retinol24 Products
Olay came out with three retinol products in this collection, which I love because finding the right retinol is not always a one size fits all thing. In this new collection, they have a moisturizer, a serum and an eye cream. The moisturizer can simply replace the moisturizer in your regular daily skincare routine while the eye cream you’d gently pat on after moisturizer and then, my favorite, the serum you apply after cleansing but before moisturizer in the evening.
One of the most asked questions I got from you babes ever since unboxing these products on IG is about side effects. Which I totally get because some retinol is crazy intense. I never personally experienced any side effects while using the Retinol24 products, which was Olay’s goal when formulating them. Retinol can get a bad rap for being harsh on skin, but Olay did tons of testing before launching these and told me 96% of the women in their test group did not experience any irritation – cool right?? So if you have sensitive skin, this could be a great option for you!
My Experience Using Retinol24
I’ve been testing out the Olay Retinol24 products for about four weeks now and decided I love the serum the most. Serums have always been my thing – I just feel like they’re the most effective and this was no different for me. It was easy to incorporate into my nightly routine and I felt like it really made a noticeable difference overall. I think you girls will be pretty surprised at the immediate difference you see in your skin and lalaLOVE. And so affordable, you can’t go wrong!
If you’ve never tried retinol before and aren’t sure what to look for, you should notice your skin looking brighter and any fine lines looking a little more subtle or even gone. I find it works well for forehead lines! And as far as the amount of retinol in Olay’s products, I actually learned the amount of retinol in a product isn’t near as important as what ingredients it’s combined with, which is what the difference maker is for this product. So much science to skincare – it’s crazy!
Whether you’re new to retinol or have been using it for years, I’d recommend giving Olay’s Retinol24 line a try! You’ll definitely see results without the crazy investment of some out there.
Thank you so much to Olay for sponsoring this post
