Created in partnership with Olay.
Today we are going to talk about COLLAGEN. Collagen, as you probably already know, exists naturally in our skin and is what gives it that coveted “plump factor.” However, collagen production starts to decrease as early as AGE TWENTY. How is that for a stat? And as that happens, our existing collagen starts to break down thanks to UV rays and the natural ageing process.
Lucky for us, Olay’s new Collagen Peptide24 Hydrating Moisturizer has been shown to boost natural collagen production. It’s packed with our favorite ingredients like Vitamin B3 (aka Niacinamide, one of my most favorite ingredients as it strengthens the skin to help with firmness), and of course, Collagen Peptide. The end result is smoother, firmer skin and a noticeable difference in wrinkles and fine lines.
Olay Collagen Peptide24 Hydrating Moisturizer Review
I am such a fan of Olay’s products. They put so much research into every product they launch, and their products WORK. I know that I review a lot of products here, including some very expensive creams and potions, but when it comes to affordable skincare, nothing is better than Olay. (I am also a massive fan of their Retinol24 MAX collection – you can read my review of it here). I’d personally recommend alternating this with the Retinol24 cream every other night.
Olay sent me this moisturizer back in early November so I have had a LOT of time to play with it. You definitely notice an immediate plumped up effect. It’s temporary but noticeable. And over time, the topical peptides support your skin’s natural renewal process, helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
I really like using this on my skin after retinol or acids, but it’s great on “off nights,” too. It’s also great as a day cream over Vitamin C (just don’t forget your SPF). And, it’s fragrance-free. The perfect every day (and every night!) moisturizer, PACKED with good-for-your-skin anti-ageing ingredients.
A nerdy science note!
(I thought this was so cool, one of the many reasons I love working with Olay!)
Collagen as a molecule is actually too big to penetrate the skin, which means it will just sit on the skin’s surface as opposed to penetrating deeply, meaning you’ll get limited benefits.
This cream is optimized with Olay’s powerhouse peptide formula, featuring small molecules that penetrate the skin’s surface and provide visible results starting day one… giving you that plumped up, firmer look and visibly smoothing lines and wrinkles.
