About six weeks ago a group of BeautyGeeks readers volunteered to try Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream ($34.99 CAN at amazon.ca and $28.99 USD at ulta.com), the moisturizer an independent study established as superior to 32 more expensive brands when it comes to hydrating skin. Our testers, all of whom have been contending with our Canadian winter's assault on their skin, will be posting their comments throughout the day.
I tried the cream too, although it took me a few weeks to work up my nerve. I usually have an oily complexion, you see, which means I avoid heavy creams suitable for dry skin. But I've stressed my face out some in the last few months by skimping on sleep and water, so it's actually been a little on the dry side.
Turns out Micro-Sculpting is lighter than I expected, and an effective solution to my slight dryness issues. It's more fragranced than I like, but leaves my skin soft and comfortable. It's supposed to firm the skin as well, but I -- er -- don't need that so much, and so didn't notice whether it does or not. Still, thumbs up from this beauty geek.
