Last month I told you all about the exciting updates to Olay Regenerist which launched on the 1st April, but I also need to let you know that in combination with reformulating the classic, Olay have also added Olay Regenerist Luminous to their collection. This sub-collection includes two new products, Skin Tone Perfecting Cream and Luminous Dark Circle Correcting Eye Swirl.
Aimed at a slightly younger market, the Skin Tone Perfecting Cream (£29.99) is designed to re-energise, hydrate and protect the skin. The plumping up effect of the product is also meant to give the skin a smoother finsh, which helps with light relections, giving a glowing complexion, hence the addition of 'Luminous' to the name.
I do much prefer the packaging of the Regenerist Lumoinous, it is much prettier than the red version of Regenerist, and the cream itself is a cute pink colour. However, I actually do prefer the classic, as Regenerist Luminous made my skin feel a little stickier and actually not as smooth.
The Eye Swirl (£29.99), however, I do really like and has remained in my vanity unit since I brought it home and I have been using it loads. Again, the packaging is really pretty and I really like the swirl effect running through the product, which is the combination of the cream and gel which work together to hydrate your eye area and reduce the appearance of dark circles. Don't get me wrong, most of the time I do still reach for the under eye concealer too, but the Eye Swirl means it doesn't have to works as hard. It isn't the cheapest of products, but as you only use a tiny amount, it should keep you going a decent amount of time.
