Olay Regenerist "Advanced Age-Defying EYE Roller" Treatment


As ye probably all know by now if you follow my blog or videos, I am a sucker for anything to do with skincare for the eye area. Getting wrinkles around my eyes is one of my biggest nightmares. Now while I know the inevitable will happen, I will try my damnedest to fight off the dreaded crows-feet & creased lower-lid skin for as long as humanly possible!
One of the products I have been trying out over the past few months is this Olay Roller ball treatment.


It's a treatment for the eye area designed "to deliver younger looking eyes" with immediate results as well as "long term wrinkle reduction benefits". It reminds me of some eye serums that I've used recently, but there's no need for a further eye cream over top. The pen-like tube applicator contains 3 metal rollers in the head to massage the skin while applying the anti-aging ingredients. This rolling over the skin also helps to "increase lymphatic drainage" and as the little balls are metal, they cool the skins surface which will helps to reduce any puffiness by temporarily constricting capillaries beneath the skin.


The metal rollers in the applicator head.
You click the back-end of the tube container to release the product into the metal balls as they massage the skin, one click is plenty to cover both sides but as is usual with these applicators, it requires numerous 'clicks' initially to deliver the treatment to the head. 

Ingredients.
Top 3 ingredients;

Water
Apart from the obvious hydration, it also acts as solvent for the other ingredients
Glycerin
This acts as a humectant binding water to the skin
Isopropyl Isostearate
This is a softening agent...

"Isopropyl Isostearate acts as a lubricant on the skin's surface giving it a soft and smooth appearance. It may also act as a binder."

It contains Squalane, which is a lubricant that softens the skin, Caffeine which enhances suppleness & can give the skin a 'tightened' appearance and anti-oxidants to protect against free radicals that contribute to the breaking down of collagen. It also contains an "Amino-peptide complex" (Pal-KTTKS) which is what truly makes it's anti-aging, this complex is what helps to reduce the appearance of fine-lines & wrinkles. 

I almost never stick to a single skin-care product for quite long enough to really, truly gauge the long-term results but I certainly think this treatment proves itself with its' immediate benefits. It does cool & sooth the skin, (especially if you keep it in the fridge!) and the area feels intensely hydrated once on the skin offering a 'plumped-up' appearance which is great for superficial fine lines, particularly those caused by dehydration. 
It's suggested that you use it twice daily, morning & night, for at least 4 weeks to achieve optimum results.

It's available from all Olay stockists, Boots etc and the Irish RRP is €30.45.

  1. I am only 22 and Ive already get stupid fine lines under my eyes. Three to be exact and their fairly deep. I got them from lack of sleep I think. Ive tried another type of olay product and clinique all about the eyes but found the didnt do much to help. However I liked the clinique one as it made my concealer go on really well. I drink loads of water and get at least 7 hours sleep. I havent bought a new eyecream yet as Im trying to look into to see which one will help reduce them xx
