Anyone use the Olay Regenerist range?

I read this in Mimi Spencer's column in YOU magazine yesterday, she's talking about mad anti-ageing treatments:

"..Just lately, an interesting snippet of research revealed that hardly any of it does much good. Ha! One of the only effective wrinkle-beaters turns out to be a peptide called Matrixyl, which is a key ingredient in a few age-defying face creams (including Olay Regenerist, if you're interested; yup, even I am tempted)."

So just wondering if anyone uses the Olay Regenerist range and has had good results, or is this another thinly-veiled DM advert?

It's £30 for a tub is Asda shock so thought I'd ask first!

I've used it and like it a lot (but only buy on offer). But tbh I'm using Boots or Superdrug own brand Vitamin E stuff now, which costs mere pennies and is really quite good.

I use it, got the sreum, eye cream and face cream when Boots had a 3 for 2 offer on. I really like it, my skin has definitly improved, pores look much better/smaller and my skin is very soft, crows feet are not as obvious I don't think. I am just running out of all 3 now so will wait until another offer is on as I have loads of No 7 Protect and Perfect to use that I got at christmas.

I just got it this week. £10 off Amazon! It feels really nice on. It's too early for any real results, but I think I see an improvement. I've also been on a water binge, so could also be that.

Cool thanks smile I think I'll give it a go. Good shout on the 3 for 2!

I use the Regenerist cream when it's on offer, often under a tenner at Savers. It feels lovely, nice for daily use. I'm not sure anything prevents wrinkles other than always using a high SPF though, I thought peptides just temporarily plumped the skin a bit, hiding wrinkles very slightly.

Eek, sorry, just checked and I have been using L'oreal Revitalift not Olay Regenerist.
