Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex

Pros
  • Contains several good-for-skin ingredients
  • Temporarily fills in lines and wrinkles
  • Layers well under makeup
Cons
  • Contains fragrance

Bottom line

Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex contains ingredients that temporarily fill in lines and wrinkles, greatly reducing their appearance. It also contains niacinamide, amino-peptides and antioxidants that can strengthen the skin over time. The formula is very similar to Olay Regenerist Daily Regenerating Serum, Fragrance Free (*Est. $20 for 1.7 oz.), although a bit thicker.

Performance

Fills in lines and wrinkles: Paula Begoun, skin care expert and author of "Don't Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me," says Olay's Wrinkle Revolution Complex has a slightly spackle-like texture that helps to temporarily fill in lines and wrinkles, but she notes that the result is purely cosmetic. She says the wrinkle cream has a "remarkably good formula," but it's very similar to every other Regenerist moisturizer in that it contains silicone, glycerin, niacinamide and a blend of antioxidants. She notes that the anti-aging ingredients have solid research behind them and over time, "they can reduce the appearance of wrinkles ... and help strengthen the skin's surface against moisture loss."

Several reviewers at Amazon.com say they saw noticeable results -- likely due to the fillers this product contains. One says, "I was honestly shocked when I saw my forehead and crow's feet wrinkles had diminished greatly after about 10 days."

Feel and smell

Non-greasy: Reviewers say Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex has a lightweight, silky texture that isn't overly greasy. One user at Amazon.com says, "it went on smoothly and felt fantastic! Like I was bathing my skin in silk ..." Begoun says the formula has a subtle fragrance, but not likely enough to be of concern.

Review Credibility: Fair This slide show offers skin care recommendations for each generation from the 20s through the 50s. Tips are given for preventing early signs of aging and for treating wrinkles and fine lines that have already begun to show. Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex is recommended because it contains peptides, but nothing else is said about the formula, and it isn't clear if it was tested.
