Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Eye Cream & Lash Serum Duo Review

Saturday, April 27, 2013

DISCLOSURE:  I received a free product from Vocalpoint to try and review.  All opinions are my own.

As much as I hate to admit it, I am getting older.  I'll be 35 at the end of August.  I'm starting to see random grey hairs popping up and maybe the hint of some lines trying to form on my face.  For the first time, I find myself starting to pay a little more attention to my facial skincare regimen.

I'm careful with what I use to wash my face and trying to start washing my face morning and night.  I've started to use a cleansing lotion (astringent) and a moisturizer with SPF.  And for the first time, I've started to use eye cream.  I had a little sample from Mario Badescu that I was using for awhile until I ran out.  When I went to buy more, the cost was a little more than what I wanted to spend, so I bought a drugstore brand, hoping it would work as well.  Sadly, it didn't and actually caused the skin around my eyes to have some sort of reaction.  Gross.

So, I was pretty happy when I was given the opportunity to try the new Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Eye Cream & Lash Serum Duo.  After the disaster with the other drugstore brand, I was afraid to try anything else!  The Olay Lash Duo claims to help you achieve younger-looking eyes by softening the appearance of lines and giving you smoother-looking lids and instantly thicker-looking lashes -- both are benefits I could use!  Especially, the thicker-looking lashes.  Right now, they are pretty non-existent!

The Olay Lash Duo features a dual-ended applicator.  One side contains the eye cream, the other contains the lash serum.

The eye cream:
  • Hydrates to firm the eye area
  • Reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Smooths the look of lids
The eye cream is pretty light and goes on smoothly.  It absorbs into the skin pretty quickly, so you don't have to sit there and rub too long.

To apply the eye cream, massage a small amount under the eye, on the eyelid and around the corners of your eye until thoroughly absorbed.  Use twice daily, morning and evening.

Here I am applying it under my eye:

The lash serum:
  • Instantly thickens the appearance of lashes
  • Hydrates to nourish lashes from base to tip
The lash serum is clear and easy to apply.  The brush applicator is nice and the serum doesn't cause any clumping of the lashes.  My lashes did feel a little sticky until the serum dried.

To apply the lash serum, use the lash brush to sweep serum onto lashes, from base to tip.  After lashes dry, top with your favorite mascara, if desired.

Here I am putting the lash serum on.  I normally don't wear mascara, so I did not follow with mascara.

Would you recommend it?  Yes!  I love how light the eye cream is and felt it did a good job moisturizing the skin around my eyes.  I probably won't use the lash serum much, since I didn't really notice much of a difference in my lashes.  Though, maybe worn under mascara, it may make my lashes look thicker.

How much does it cost?  The Olay Lash Duo retails for $31.99.  Olay does offer a Money-Back Guarantee.  If you're unhappy with any Olay Regenerist moisturizer or cleanser, call toll-free 1-855-317-4203 for refund details.

Where can I buy it?  You can find it at all major drug stores, mass merchandisers, grocery stores and online retailers.
