Olay Regenerist Review

Overview

Regenerist is an anti-aging product offered by Olay, a skin care company that is widely recognizable across the globe. The Regenerist line is a broad one that includes products to cleanse, moisturize, exfoliate and treat the face. The large number of products can make it difficult to choose the best ones for your skin, which we believe might be a turnoff for some consumers. However, we will look at the general formula that is used for these products to determine whether any or all of them contain proven anti-aging ingredients that will be effective at treating wrinkles.

According to the company website, the Olay Regenerist line claims to “beautifully regenerate skin’s appearance, renewing its outer layer one cell at a time.” Regenerist is supposed to help skin regenerate quickly and strengthen the moisture barrier for skin that “looks, feels and behaves more like new skin.” The products vary in their usage instructions, depending on whether their primary purpose is cleansing, moisturizing or treating. The Olay Regenerist products cannot be ordered directly through the company website. However, many online retailers and physical stores offer Olay products. The Regenerist line is offered at a fairly reasonable price, although we could not find mention of a money back guarantee from this manufacturer.

Product Details

The Olay website lists the ingredients in the Regenerist line as Pal-KTTKS, vitamin B3, vitamin E, pro-vitamin B5, green tea extract, and allantoin. It is the Pal-KTTKS that we are most interested in, an ingredient that is also known as palmitoyl-pentapeptide 3 or matrixyl 3000. This substance consists of a chain of 5 amino acids and has been proven as an effective anti-aging ingredient. Matrixyl 3000 is one of the handful of ingredients that we recommend consumers look for when they are shopping for a skin care product designed to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Other ingredients in the Olay Regenerist line consist of antioxidants, which can help protect the skin from free radical damage. Free radicals are lurking in our environment, in pollution, cigarette smoke and the sun’s rays. They can cause damage to the skin, including signs of premature aging. By protecting your skin from free radicals, you are taking positive steps to keep your skin looking younger for longer.

The Good

  • Olay Regenerist contains matrixyl, a proven anti-aging ingredient.
  • The products are reasonably priced and easy to find.

The Bad

  • There is no clear return policy listed on the company website.
  • Other potent ingredients, like hyaluronic acid and collagen, are noticeably absent from ingredient lists.
  • The many products available may make it difficult to choose the right items for your individual needs.

The Bottom Line

Olay Regenerist offers a fairly basic anti-aging product at a reasonable price. With matrixyl in the mix, you may see positive results with this product. However, combining matrixyl with other proven ingredients, like other products do, may enhance the peptide’s effectiveness.
