I’ve teamed up with Olay Canada to share my thoughts and experience with the new Retinol24 Collection. As a teenager, I suffered from acne and it left scars on my skin. Now as an adult, I struggle with age spots due to irresponsible sun exposure and lack of sunscreen. Fortunately, the Olay Retinol24 Night Serum has given me the chance to improve my skin complexion. Goodbye age spots and acne scars! Not only does my skin look smoother and brighter, age spots and acne scars are noticeably fading away. After just 28 days of use, my skin is noticeably better!
What are the key ingredients that make Olay Retinol24 so effective?
Olay Retinol24 Night Serum is free of dyes, sulphates and fragrance. It contains Vitamin B3 which is known to help moisturize skin and holds on to moisture. It also contains retinoid complex and amino peptides – this is how the product can deliver such great results and is gentle enough for daily use!
What sets it apart from other brands?
Olay Retinol24 Collection is affordable and can be found in most drug stores, grocery stores and mass retailers in Canada and online. The formula is very stable and effective, it remains active for a longer period, even after being left out for several hours.
It’s gentle enough to use every day and I didn’t notice any irritation, redness or dryness on my skin. I’ve used retinoids before and didn’t notice results as quickly as the Olay Retinol24 Night Serum. I’ve previously used the StriVectin AR S.T.A.R. light retinol night oil and didn’t notice any difference after using it for a couple weeks. It was oil based but oddly enough it felt so dry on my skin. The Olay Retinol24 Night Serum however, is so moisturizing and I immediately felt the difference after first use. My skin was smooth and it looked bright and refreshed.
Olay Retinol24 Night Serum is great for all skin types. It has so many benefits to the skin, like fading dark spots and acne scars, which makes it a great product for both teens and adults alike. It’s not just something to be used by mature skin types, it’s truly versatile and is suitable for all skin types of all ages.
Before and After
Check out the results of My 28 Day Skin Transformation. As you can see from the before picture, my skin looks dull and age spots in the upper cheek areas are noticeably darker. After 28 days, my skin looks so much brighter, plump and you can see the age spots have faded.
Skin Care Tips
As a former esthetician, I know the importance of having a consistent skincare routine. Even if you don’t leave the house, dirt and oil can accumulate on your skin throughout the day. So, I highly recommended you follow a good night time routine.
I suggest you start with a cleanser that’s targeted for your skin type, apply a toner to remove excess dirt and oil, then apply your favourite eye cream, serum, and moisturizer. The Olay Retinol24 Night Serum contains the same formula as the eye cream and night moisturizer from their collection and so now I can skip the last 2 steps of my usual routine. In the morning, I cleanse my skin again and apply an SPF moisturizer – an absolute MUST!
I’ve tried many skincare products for many years, and as I age, I notice my skin type changing. From acne, enlarged pores, dryness, dullness, dehydration, acne scars and brown spots, I’ve struggled through it all. It’s amazing to know that there’s a product that has so many benefits and is able to target my various skin concerns. Now I don’t have to spend so much money on various products that usually only focuses on one of these problems, because the Olay Retinol24 collection can target them all.
If you’re shopping for a new skincare product, I highly recommend you try out the Olay Retinol24 Night Serum. The Olay Retinol24 collection is also available as a Night Cream or Night Eye Cream. You can use them all, or just one, the formula is the same, but it just depends what you’re looking to add to your skincare routine and the texture you prefer!
