Olay Regenerist 3-point Treatment Cream

With Olay being one of the best-known and best-selling skincare brands, there’s little that can go wrong? Olay Regenerist 3-point Treatment Cream is part of their anti-aging range, said to treat the hardest areas of the face – eyes, jawline and neck – lots of us gave it a try but with mixed and disappointing results. Though it’s said to be good to target eyes, all our testers found the cream to rich for the eye area, preferring instead an eye cream or gel. Some of our testers found the cream too rich in general, especially those with sensitive skin – seeing the Fragrance Free label they’d hoped for something good, but unfortunately they found it caused breakouts and redness (in one case soreness) so stopped using it. For some the cream was good, but they found it gave few results worthy of a cream costing around £30.  While those that found it helped smooth some fine lines and improved skin tone in that it appeared that skin was firmer and less saggy, overall our ladies were not terribly impressed 🙁 Instead take a look at Olay’s Classic Care or Total Effects range, Avon’s Anew range or Arbonne’s RE9 range.

Raisin Face Skin Fix Concentrate

It’s always so much fun to find out about not only a product you haven’t heard of but also a brand. We were introduced to Raisin Face by owner Tracy – her passion for the product is contagious and we got very excited when our pot of Skin Fix arrived! Packaging is simple and straightforward, but the careful balance of quality and effective ingredients really stands out. On first use we weren’t sure we were going to enjoy the product, but we soon learned we were putting far too much on!!  The cream is thick and rich – all you really need is a small amount, warmed slightly in the hand to ease application, for your whole face. The ingredients list starts with Aloe Vera, known for it’s soothing and moisturising qualities, and then Emu Oil… this is the first product we’d tried with Emu Oil, which helps other vitamins and nutrients to penetrate deep into the skin.  Raisin Face Skin Fix Concentrate has 18% Emu Oil – very high quantities compared to similar products.  In addition, the cream contains anti-aging ingredients, and shea butter, jojoba oil and green tea extract. After almost two weeks’ use, we have found such an improvement to skin tone and a noticeable ‘plumped’ look to skin… “Even better have been the comments of how nice skin looks and how healthy I look.” says Beauty Reviews editor Lisa. Even those with sensitive skin who usually steer clear of anti-aging creams have found benefits, this is a good anti-aging product to try if you usually break-out or suffer redness when using other creams (do try...
Rodial Bee Venom Moisturiser

Rodial Bee Venom Moisturiser

Now we all know Rodial’s products come with a hefty price tag and sit at the most luxury end of the market, but would this £150-a-jar moisturiser really give the right results? This moisturiser is from Rodial’s Bee Venom range, primarily aimed at women aged 50-59 with skin suffering from the effects of the menopause. And yes, this moisturiser really does give the right results! After just one use all testers found a significant improvement in skin tone and texture, many noticed a plumped and less slack feel to skin too. While  aimed at women aged 50+, women of younger ages suffering from hormonal imbalance after pregnancy, or during times of stress and illness, also found visible results from using this. Rodial’s Bee Venom Moisturiser offers a real confidence boost in a jar at what can be a stressful time for most women. The only downside is the price – but look out for offers from Rodial.
