Unfortunately not for me
I was so hopeful as I've used many Olay products in the past. After a couple of weeks I had itchy little lumps high on my forehead, little abrasions down the bridge of my nose, and an itchy patch on my right cheek. Am going to take a break to see if symptoms recede. I'm 74 with very dry winter skin. Donna
ITCHY face after three days. Dried out my skin terribly
Skin and front of scalp very itchy and dry and rough . This was the fragrance free no sunblock whip.
I have used regenerist before but the whip was a whole other animal.
Face burning !
I used for two days and seemed fine, then third day I put it on after a shower and my face instantly started burning and a rash broke out on forehead and cheeks, I’ve washed it off but still burning, was hopeful this was going to be worth the cost :(
Have red rash on forehead and neck after using first time! I have been using Olay moisturizer for several years and never had a problem. I am very disappointed that the label didn’t have a warning.
I thought it was perfect at first
I just hope that this is normal that you're supposed to have a little redness with using a new products because I really do want to start using Olay products but now I'm worried that maybe Olay products are just not for me maybe I'm allergic to something in there because I usually don't have sensitive skin I can usually try just about anything so this really bums me out that I may be allergic olay
I was using this as directed for approximately 1 week. I woke up yesterday with my face blustered, swollen, burning, and itchy. I was hoping to replenish some moisture to my post menopausal skin. This did not do the trick - expensive lesson learned.
Waste of money...
At first... i didnt bother the sting and burn feeling. Coz i thought its normal but im using it 4 days now and i notice my face... omg... i have to stop using this product. Such a waste of money... i will not recommend this product to anyone....
My daughter got this for me for mother's day. I've used it for a week now and every day it burns my face terribly! The texture is nice, but not worth the burn. Almost feels like a chemical burn which is very unfortunate because I love most Olay products.
My face is burning!
I’ve tried this four times and each time I’ve used it my face became red and felt like it was burning. Imagine a sunburn but maybe deeper in the skin.
Bought both this and the retinol 24 night cream. Have been using for a week now, cheeks are red and flakey, face burns. Biggest waste of money, over 30.00 each at Walgreen's. Store is not taking returns due to this terrible virus. I wish I would have looked at the reviews before wasting my money. Obviously this product is no good. Just wanted fine lines gone...Will be going back to Aveeno..
I’ve always had good skin until I turned 45. I started noticing frown lines and dry skin. I decided to try the Micro-sculpting cream. I applied it early in the morning, and by about 10am, my face had grown red and had a fine bumpiness all over. I thought I would give it a couple of days but each time I use it my face seems to swell and get hot. Sometimes my whole entire head feels hot.
Not for everyone
I loved this product. My face was soft and silky and my wrinkles were improving. After about a week of using it 2x a day my arms and face became very itching dry and broke out in little hives.. I loved it so much I bought the fragrance free so had the same reaction.. Spent 60.00 on both
Itchy red bumps
I began using this product back in March gradually. At first it seemed to be okay and my skin felt softer. I have sensitive skin and do not usually put products on my face, so I put this on a little bit at a time gradually every few days. The past couple of weeks I began using it more as it seemed okay, but started seeing red spots poke up under my skin. I still applied this cream on my face and neck, but now after a month or so of using this my face is itchy, looks and feels like I have a sunburn and my neck is itching like crazy with lit...tle bumps. I have stopped using the product all together for the last 5 days, and it still feels this way. I read great reviews prior to February which is why I decided to try this product, but it seems as if something has either been tampered with or added to this product to make many have the same reaction. Will not purchase this again.
BUYER BEWARE ....
I purchased this product in December 2019 as a change from the Play product I had used for over 40 years. It felt nice & my skin seemed smoother. In February 2020 it was on Special at my store so I purchased 4 bottles. Not long after I noted a fluffy, dry residue on my skin which wouldn't clean off. I stopped using the product as a Test & though my skin seemed to improve some dryness remained. I reapplied the Olay Regenerist 3 days ago & within 12 hours my skin became irritated, red, blotchy, swollen & dry. I immediately cleaned it off but 2 da...ys later my skin is still irritated, red & swollen. I have no doubt about he cause. Why though did it take 4 months to be a problem? Have they changed the formula? Is this why it was on Special - to sell off the bottles causing a problem? I am concerned that my skin may now have some permanent damage. I will never use it again & this should also be a Warning to others, stay clear.
Olay regenerist night recovery cream..... very disappointed
After beginning this product I have broke out in acne. I don’t get acne anymore and was very disappointed by this! I used the product as directed and yes my skin does feel softer but not worth the acne all over it!
I’ve never had a reaction to a product before until this one!
I’ve used Olay since I was 16/17 and never had an issue. This product made me break out in a terrible red spotty rash after day 2. I’m now on cortisone good clear it up.
Outstanding result. Effective in smoothing lines and hydrating skin.
My grandma has been using this for years, and she has much fewer lines compared to her friends or any other people at her age of 67.
I tried this product for winter months. Well, I’m only 21 so I don’t need too much anti-aging skincare. I used it simply because its moisturising function is so good. The price is AUD 50.00, which is a bit high for a drugstore product. But if compared the quality for brands like Elizabeth Arden/Clinique, it’s definitely comparable.
For irritation, some people reviewed their irritation but I did not have any. But o...
This cream left my skin bright red and burning lips.
After using this cream twice my face was bright red which has faded after some time but leaving my lips burning - feels like nerve ending damage.
Wondering if it causes skin cancer or any other long term damage esp to lips.
Rash, Sunburn Reaction
Great smooth texture, light and non-greasy. However, my skin did not like one of the ingredients and I was left with a red rash-sunburn reaction. Purchased from Walmart - April 2020 also.
Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Essence and Micro Sculpting Cream
I can see no noticeable difference in my skin!
This is the second round of using it and I am extremely disappointed!
I feel let down and robbed by this product!
Questions & Answers
What difference of new fomular regenerist ?
For anyone who has had a skin reaction to this product. What did you do to help with your skin reaction? I have red itchy bumps all over my face and rashes that look like a sun burn from using this product.
I've used this product for years, mostly during the winter when skin is dryer. Opened a new jar this December and I'm itchy, red, and swollen all over my face and neck after one application. How did the formula change? I bought two large jars of this.

I purchased it at Costco several months ago. I applied cream from a new jar December 3 and noticed some itchiness the next morning. By mid-day the 4th my face and neck were red and puffy. I rinsed off with water and did not use another product for a couple days. It subsided by the 6th, but I started searching the internet to see if there had been some change in the formula.
