I completely disagree - there isn't a day that goes by that I don't get told that I have beautiful skin. I've been using the Regenerist line of Oil of Olay for 5 years - it is wonderful, feels wonderful and does exactly what the advertisements proclaim. For years I used Channel and Lancome - Oil of Olay is better than any moisturizer/wrinkle cream that I ever used - what a waste of money on all that Department Store stuff I used for years.

It's great if Olay Regenerist works for you. It didn't work for me and has been proved ineffective:

Ineffective: Olay Regenerist's Pentapeptides: Melbourne Dermatology Skin Care

Pentapeptides are ineffective anti-ageing ingredients, says ASA

I am with you. I am turning 40 this year and have been using Oil of Olay's Regenerist line for a few years now along with the regular Oil of Olay cream and see no reason to change. Don't feel the need to waste my money on anything else.

I've used the regenerist facial cream in the past and I liked how it smoothed out my skin without making it feel greasy, or tight. Just nice and even, moisturized and fresh-feeling. I'll probably go back to it after I run out of my Origins moisturizer, unless I get another coupon for the Origins

Wow, imagine that - retin-a wasn't even a mention in that video, and Oil of Olay made #1 or "runner up" in several categories.

I could only tolerate a minute (if that) of the video. It amazes me how narcissistic some people are.

She has terrible skin! Of course they didn't mention Retin-a, the purpose of the article was to sell products to the clueless masses.

I don't think her skin is terrible, but I didn't get very far into the video so maybe there's a close up? I'm not particularly fond of her eye shadow choices, but hey, if she likes it and feels good wearing it, more power to her.

I am 40 and I'm just starting to feel my skin get less firm. It needs to stop. I put a new pic in my profile that gives a good look at my face. What would you use to firm up skin?
