Great for fine lines and overall skin appearance,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Olay Regenerist Regenerating Lightweight Moisturization Face Serum, Fragrance-Free 1.7 fl oz (Health and Beauty)
After one month of daily use, here is my verdict: This stuff works. It's not magic, it's not a miracle, it doesn't transform every wrinkle and age spot. But it makes your skin look BETTER than before, which is all we can really hope for, isn't it?
I've noticed a somewhat dramatic change in the fine lines around my eyes (no, I don't use a separate eye cream). They are smoother and much less noticeable. The few age spots I've developed seem to be lighter. Overall, looking at my face in the mirror now, I sometimes have to do a double-take because my skin looks so much better and brighter. The permanent dark circles under my eyes are even lighter.
I have acne prone skin and I was nervous about using a new moisturizer, but quickly found that my skin actually CLEARED UP while using this product. Likely, it was due to my regimented focus on skin care in general, but this did NOT contribute to any breakouts at all.
This is one product I can see myself using for a very long time.
Update: Four years later, and I'm still using this product regularly. I stopped for a few months at one point and found my skin started to look somewhat dull. Being in my 40s, this is prime aging time, but I don't feel that my face is betraying me anymore. I have to give Olay a little bit of the credit.

I agree with the reviewer that Olay Regenerist serum will not exacerbate an acne problem nor cause breakouts. I too have avoided moisturizer for that reason in the past, and I'm really glad to have discovered this product. My fine wrinkles are gone and no breakouts!

I wish I were as lucky as some of you here. I'm also over 40 and have acne-prone skin, and this serum definitely caused major breakouts. I think everyone's skin is different and reacts to different things.

I had the same problem. This is not the greatest product for oily skin. I am sorry about that because I did find that it worked quite well and made my skin look better. But if you have "adult" oily skin don't buy this.
