P.S. Ingredient list is not mentioned on product packaging anywhere. Strange thing is I could not find the listing of Olay Regenerist Revitalising Hydration Cream Moisturiser SPF15 on Olay’s official website anywhere. All I could find were links from different e-commerce website which are selling it 😮

Packaging:

The outer packaging of Olay Regenerist Revitalising Hydration Cream Moisturiser SPF15 is typical Red and brown black carton box, similar to other products from Regenerist range. Outer box has all the details as product description, other product names from same range and directions to use, price, manufacturing & expiry date, quantity and made in Thailand and import to India 😀

Inside the box product comes in glassy appearing grey plastic tub with screw lid. The packaging is travel friendly but not sturdy, I dropped it once and its cap broke so definitely do not drop it.

Overall the packaging is nothing special.

Texture & color:

I love how Olay Regenerist Revitalising Hydration Cream Moisturiser SPF15 looks in tub. It is beautiful peach colored cream which looks very rich textured in the tub. and I was right about it being rich textured. As soon as you take cream in your hands you can feel that it is thick consistency cream. Which when you massage on face sinks into skin pretty well. But be cautious about the quantity you use.(less is more remember!).

Performance of Olay Regenerist Revitalising Hydration Cream Moisturiser SPF15:

For the first time I have applied Olay Regenerist Revitalising Hydration Cream Moisturiser SPF15 during summers and it made my combination skin feel uncomfortable and oily in less than 2 hours(even after setting with powder so forget about layering it with foundation or BB cream). So a big no-no for oily/combination skinned beauties in summers.

I gave this one a second try in monsoon/rainy season and it performed better than summers but on a humid day you might not like heavy feeling on skin. So no for oily/combination skinned beauties in monsoon too.

Then I gave it a third try since the start of fall season and I liked the hydration it gave to my combination skin in dry weather and since then I am hooked onto it throughout winter. It provides just enough hydration and moisturisation to skin so oily/combination skinned beauties are gonna love it in fall and winters.

Dry skinned beauties will love it in all seasons.

It also provides a healthy glow to skin and makes the appearance of skin smoother(I don’t have wrinkles but a bit of fine lines under my eyes) so with regular usage it might smooth the fine lines appearance. I sometimes skipped my eye cream and applied this instead(Big risk I know) and it did not burn my eyes(Thankfully 😛 ) and provided the hydration as my eye cream does 🙂

Quantity required to cover face and neck is very less(pea-size is enough for me) so little goes a long way.

Lets sum up my likes and dislikes about Olay Regenerist Revitalising Hydration Cream Moisturiser SPF15.

What I like about Olay Regenerist Revitalising Hydration Cream Moisturiser SPF15:

  • rich textured peach colored cream.
  • Provides hydration for dry skinned beauties in all seasons.
  • Reduces appearance of fine lines overtime.
  • Provides a healthy glow to skin.
  • Smoothen out nourished skin.
  • Sinks into skin quickly and doesn’t form a film.
  • Did not break out my sensitive skin.
  • Doesn’t sting in eyes unlike mostly anti-aging creams.
  • Travel-friendly packaging.
  • Perfect for winters for oily/combination skinned beauties.
  • very less quantity is required(14gm tub lasted me for approx 3 months)

What I don’t like about Olay Regenerist Revitalising Hydration Cream Moisturiser SPF15:

  • Too heavy for oily/combination skinned beauties in summers/humid weather.
  • Pricey.(but very less quantity is required, so little goes a long way).
  • No mention of ingredients on package.
  • Contains alcohol.
  • could not find product on official site.
  • SPF 15 will not suffice in summers.

Final Verdict:

3.8/5 (-ve for being heavy and greasy for oily and combination skin in summers and humid weather). Dry skinned beauties would love it in all seasons. But oily/combination skinned beauties should buy it only in winters.

I will repurchase it next winter again. I liked the smoother appearance and healthy glow it provides.
