Olay Regenerist Luminous Facial Oil is a new daily treatment oil that contains 9 natural oils to nourish, soften, and hydrate skin. With facial oils on the trending horizon the release of Olay Regenerist Luminous Facial Oil is right on target!
I actually currently use a facial oil in my own skincare regime as I know many of you do too and since Olay is sorta kinda the pioneer for a drugstore facial oil release I was in fact intrigued.
Olay Regenerist Luminous Facial Oil will prove great for some but not all skin types. Unfortunately Olay does include a good deal of fragrance oils in this mix and that could prove a bit irritating for sensitive skin. There’s orange, lemon, and other citrus oils in this formula. There’s also mint in here as well! You can imagine these oils give the product a very lovely lemon-y fragrance but again, for those with sensitive skin it might not be agreeable. I don’t really mind, I think it smells quite lovely!
This comes in a 1.3 oz bottle with dropper. It’s actually unique to any other facial oil I’ve personally tried since it does have an almost dry oil texture when applied. It absorbs very fast and has a watery consistency without being greasy or oily to the touch! It doesn’t leave skin shiny or oily and dries down to a smooth slightly dewy finish. I find it applies a nice bit of hydration to my drier skin.
The formula has quite a nice concentrated amount of plant based oils that are rich in antioxidants and will benefit skin. However, the citrus oils could make skin sensitive to sun. I typically use it in the evenings only and I make sure I apply plenty of SPF in the AM.
I think Olay Regenerist Luminous Facial Oil is an awesome idea and a nice budget pick for those who already use products like Josie Maran’s more expensive Argan Oil formula. However, I do think they mucked the formula up slightly with the addiction of the citrus oils that could prove irritating!
