I am slightly embarrassed to admit that a nightly skincare routine is something that became important to me only recently. A couple of years ago, the only thing I did for my skin before going to bed was to use a baby wipe to wipe off my makeup! Now that I have discovered the Olay Retinol24 Night Collection, I’m never going back! I have easily incorporated the Olay Retinol24 Night Cream as well as the Night Serum into my nighttime routine by leaving the products visible on my bathroom counter. I also try to use their skincare products at the same time every night. Those two things have helped me keep my nighttime skincare routine top of mind! In my opinion and experience, adding a retinoid product is essential for aging skin. Still deciding if Olay Retinol24 products are right for you? Keep reading below to learn about the pros & cons of retinoids and in particular, my thoughts on the Retinol24 Night Collection.
Affordability. Not every retinoid product is affordable, but the Olay Retinol24 products are. You do not need to spend a fortune to see results – my before & afters are proof of that!
Accessibility. I love that retinoids have become such a popular ingredient in skincare products! It is very easy to get your hands on Olay Retinol24 products. It is available online as well as a vast majority of local drugstores, grocery stores, and mass retailers all over Canada!
Effectiveness. I don’t think that all retinoid products are created equally. However, I can say that with Olay Retinol24, I started to see results after only 4 weeks. Again, take a look at my before & afters to see for yourself!
Packaging. I know design isn’t everything, but it has always been something that is important to me as a consumer. I want to buy something that looks pretty. It also helps that the Olay Retinol24 products are branded in my favourite colour, purple! You all know my love for that colour runs deep.
Break Outs. In the beginning, when my skin was adjusting to the product, I did break out a little. When this happened, I started swapping the Night Cream for the Night Serum as the Night Serum is a thinner consistency than the Night Cream. That solved my breakout problems! Once my skin became fully adjusted to a daily dose of retinoids, I didn’t have any more break outs. I went back and forth between the Night Cream and Night Serum – depending on what I felt my skin needed that night.
It’s not a replacement for Botox. Though it has lessened my wrinkles, it obviously hasn’t completely gotten rid of them! I have been contemplating getting a couple of injections in my forehead to try to diminish those heavy wrinkles even further. Of course, I’ll take you guys along with me if I do decide to go one step further on my quest to staying young forever! Lol.
As you can see from my before & after, my skin has become smoother & brighter thanks to the Olay Retinol24 Night Collection! I have been recommending it to all my friends & family who are looking to either lessen their fine lines/wrinkles, dark spots and acne scars or even out their complexion & minimize pores. Olay Retinol24 has definitely amped up my nighttime skincare routine! I have used all three of the products within the collection (the Night Cream, Night Serum, and Night Eye Cream) and am so happy with my results. I have combination skin, so I have been enjoying the option to switch between the Night Cream and Night Serum every night before bed.
