As you all know, I recently got the chance to test out the new and fabulous Olay Retinol24 lineup of skincare products. As I mentioned in my Instagram stories, I would report back after 4 weeks of testing to share my thoughts with you. Well now that time has arrived and I am ready to share my results! 😊

In case you’re unfamiliar with “retinol,” or you’ve heard of it and are unsure of what it is, it’s generally said to make your skin look better and age more slowly. It’s actually one of the top searched skincare ingredients on Google and that says a lot…it works! Olay’s Retinol24 is formulated with B3, transformative Retinol Complex and 2 types of retinol.

What does retinol do for skin? The Olay Retinol24 line offers women skin improvements with fine lines and wrinkles, firmness, brightness and dark spots. It also helps improve pores! Within 24 hours, Retinol24 will smooth, brighten your skin and also hydrate with no irritation. Now let’s dive into the review to see if Retinol24 really did what it said it would for my skin! I will focus on the Olay Regenerist Retinol24 Night Facial Cream, since it’s my favorite product from the line! ❤️

Week 1

After only a couple of days, I noticed my skin requiring less moisturizer to stay hydrated throughout the day. I’m under there assumption that it took a little longer than 24 hours because my skin is super dry; I’m talking abnormally dry. If I went 1 night without moisturizing my face, I would wake up with my skin cracking all over the place… I’m not exaggerating! That’s why I’m confident in knowing why it may have taken extra time to fully moisturize my face. I am a rare case when it comes to skin dryness!  😂

 

Week 2

During the 2nd week of use, I did notice dry spots on my skin, particularly around my mouth and above my eyebrows. These are usually the driest parts of my skin anyway, so I felt like this was just my skin naturally exfoliating dead skin away, which is probably a cause of my extra dry skin in these areas to begin with. Contrary to my other moisturizers, I noticed my skin tingling in these areas while I applied the moisturizer. Some of my other previous moisturizers I used didn’t do this, but a few of them did leave dry spots. This made me wonder if continuing to use the Olay Retinol24 moisturizer could actually work, given the tingling sensation I felt on my skin. I continued usage just to find out!

 

Week 3

After the 3rd week, I noticed the dry spots on my skin getting smaller and smaller, with my skin tingling a lot less during moisturizer application. I was relieved! After this week, my skin also appeared a lot more even than normal.

 

Week 4

This week ended up being the best of all. It was the longest period I used the retinol cream. My skin was super soft and I was able to leave out of the house with only a light layer of face powder. This hasn’t happened in some time, as I had hyperpigmentation on some parts of my face. For the most part, these spots are now minimal!

The Olay Regenerist Retinol24 Night Facial Cream is great because it’s a one time a day moisturizer (nightly), that delivers 24 hour hydration. I apply it right after serum and right before eye cream! Best thing is that all 3 products in the Olay retinol lineup is that they are made to replace your existing eye cream, serum or moisturizer. Their formula with vitamin B3 plus retinol complex also hydrates better than the #1 bestselling retinol. So Olay Retinol24 is the perfect place to start if you’re looking to get into retinol!

There aren’t any particular products that have the most amount of retinol, and to be frank, it doesn’t matter which have the most. What matters most is the ingredients they are combined with and that’s why Olay offers 3 retinol products so it can fit into any part of your skin routine!

 

I definitely recommend the Retinol24 line from Olay for an instant improvement to the appearance of your skin. With winter right around the corner, what better time is there than now? We could also use something to hydrate our skin longer before the cold comes and dries it out; it’s perfect to prepare for winter!

    I’ve heard such great things about this retinol cream, I’m so bummed that it doesn’t work for my sensitive skin! I tried it once and it caused me to break out in hives 🙁

  3. Marie says:

    This was a good review. My skin isn’t super dry but it is getting older. I have an eye cream already…I may move up to this as well.

  4. Thanks for this review. I’ve been wondering how well it works. I will have to check it out for sure.

    Love your pictures here! I use Olay, although not the same one, every morning. It’s a new addition to my routine (or, rather the routin itself is new).

    I may have to give this a go as a night cream.

  8. Stephanie says:

    My skin could certainly use a bit of a hydrating boost right about now, and I’ve been hearing so many incredible, rave reviews about these Olay products, I may just have to try them for myself. It was fun to read how it affected your skin, overall, for 4 weeks. Interesting how you had those dry patches turn up, but then they went away. So cool!

  9. Morgan Tyner says:

    It’s super helpful that you used the cream for awhile before writing your review, because it gives me a real picture of how helpful it’d be!!
