Olay Regenerist Intensive Repair Treatment Review

Intensive Repair for Sensitive Skin, or Just Intense Price Tag?

Whether you’re a long-time fan of Olay or are just dipping your toe into the wrinkle care pool of products for the first time, you’ve probably heard of this line of products, but are they for you?

Oil of Olay was probably on your mother’s nightstand when you were a little girl so you may be wondering if their products are suitable for today’s beauty needs.

The answer is that Olay’s longevity in the anti-aging market is due in large part to continued research that provides state-of-the-art products developed by their own private team of specialists.

Does that translate into effective products though? We’re going to take a look at one of the products in their superstar Regenerist line, the Regenerist Intensive Repair Treatment, to see of it lives up to Olay’s claims.

What Do They Claim?

According to Olay, the Intensive Repair Treatment fights wrinkles with Pro-Retinol as well as niacinimide and other antioxidants without drying your skin out like prescription retinoid products do. They do provide a footnote that stipulates that the results aren’t equal to a retinoid prescription.

Olay claims that after 8 weeks of regular use of this dermatologically-tested product, your age spots, wrinkles, and fine lines will be reduced. The product also supposedly hydrates your skin to repair the moisture barrier that keeps your skin plump and young-looking.

They recommend that you use the Intensive Repair Treatment specifically to target zones on your face that are prone to aging, then use the Wrinkle Revolution Complex “over your face to instantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles”.

What’s In It?

The ingredients list for this product is pretty impressive. The second item on the list is niacinimide, or the topical version of B3. It’s often used to improve the moisture barrier in your skin, improve your skin’s elasticity, even out your tone and texture, and reduce or eliminate discolorations such as age spots.

On down the list is titanium dioxide which I suspect is used as a sunscreen. There’s also vitamin E, dil leaf extract, pro-vitamin B=5, pro-retinol and retinyl propionate, a form of retinol that’s gentler than standard retinol. It’s a great ingredient for people who want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles but can’t tolerate old-school retinoids.

Overall, this product has some impressive ingredients without a ton of parabens and other bad stuff. It’s not completely free of chemicals but it’s eons better than some. Just FYI, many of Olay’s products contain PTFA, better known as Teflon. The FDA has cleared it for use it supposedly only becomes toxic after reaching 350C, which never occurs in cosmetic products or procedures.

OK, now that we know what’s in it, let’s take a look at what other users think of it.

What Are Users Saying?

Though this is a fairly new product, people who have reviewed it seem to be mixed. On one hand, everyone agrees that fine lines and light age spots are reduced. Women with extensive damage including darker age spots or sun spot or deep creases didn’t notice much improvement.

The product is available without scent so that’s a definite plus if you’re sensitive to that kind of thing, or if you use other scented products.

Final Word

It seems that if you have regular to oily skin with fine lines and/or light to moderate age spots, then this serum is going to be right up your alley. If you’re looking for something to treat deep wrinkles or darker age spots, you’re probably going to be disappointed.
