While getting older is a part of life, not everything about one's golden years (read: fine lines and wrinkles) always feels so golden. Try as we might, aging skin is an inevitable part of the process. However, a handful of products are touted to stave off Mother Nature for as long as possible, including Olay's cult-favourite Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Face Cream. Backed by more than 20,000 Amazon reviews, a 4.5-star rating, and an "Amazon's Choice" title, shoppers call the day-and-night cream the "best" they've ever used — here's why.

The details

Olay's famous anti-aging face cream is designed to deliver powerful moisturizing ingredients deep into the skin's surface, improving its texture, elasticity and visibly reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

In a four-week consumer blind test, 93 per cent of participants said the Micro-Sculpting Cream improved their skin's firmness after two weeks of use; more so, Olay promises visible results in as little as one day.

The cult-favourite face cream contains Amino-Peptide Complex II and key anti-aging ingredients like carob extract, vitamin B3 and niacinamide.

What people are saying

A tried-and-true skincare staple, Olay's anti-aging face cream has brought in more than 20,000 reviews, a 4.5-star rating, and earned a coveted "Amazon's Choice" title.

"Well, smack my head and call me Charlie — this actually worked," praises one five-star reviewer.

"I'm beyond stunned" that the Olay face cream is "really is doing something," they write. It's "reversing the bagging under my eyes" and "[I have seen] a difference in my jawline."

"I'm so shocked" and "kind [of] mad I didn't try it sooner," says another user. The shopper, who says they've tried "30 moisturizers," writes the Olay Regenerist cream "worked best" for their skin — "I just realized why this is a cult classic."

The face cream is the "best I've ever used," lauds a third reviewer. After six weeks of use, "my skin has never looked or felt better," they write. By the third week, it was "glowing, healthy, smooth and hydrated."

Despite a myriad of five-star reviews (15,600, to be exact), some users say that while it's a "good moisturizer," it impacted the rest of their getting-ready routine.

According to one shopper, their foundation "doesn't go on very well" after they apply the face cream.

The verdict

Reviewers call the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Face Cream one of the "best" anti-aging creams they've "ever used." However, some note that it made their foundation sit funny, something to keep in mind when placing your order.
