Bought for: Free with points | SRP: P45 (7.5g)
Bought from: Sample Room
Hey, there! Here's a review on the newest facial cream from Olay–Ageless Aura Whitening and Anti-Aging Facial Cream. The first time I saw this on Sample Room, I was like "I gotta try what's new from Olay." So there, I immediately carted it and after a couple of days, it was delivered to my doorstep. I would like to be one of those who will try and write about it because I know Olay and the brand has been with me especially while I was undergoing puberty. It was one of the very first skincare brands I used and trusted with my skincare problems.
Now that I aged some more, I'm so excited to discover something that is more appropriate for my skin. The new variant, Ageless Aura, claims to be an anti-aging and whitening product in one that caters more to probably working and middle-aged women like me. I am not someone who does so many things outdoor but the fact that my skin is not getting any younger makes me wanna incorporate all anti-aging products in my routine.
Introducing the first 2-in-1 Whitening Cream – the new Olay Natural White Ageless Aura! It has dual benefit of Whitening + Anti-Aging that brightens skin and reduces look of wrinkles. It contains Mulberry Extract that helps to brighten skin and also contains Vitamin B3 that helps reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It also has SPF15/PA++ to protect skin from the sun.
It has Mulberry Root Extract (known to be anti-oxidant with skin lightening/brightening benefits and Vitamin B3/Niacinamide (widely known for its anti-aging properties). It contains two powerful ingredients for both whitening and anti-aging.
CLAIMS, DIRECTIONS, INGREDIENTS
Product comes in convenient sachets like this with a seal cap. I'm not really a fan of sachets because they can be quite messy so having a seal cap like this is so useful. This makes it so travel-friendly too as it's super lightweight and thin. It's not even fragile so you don't have to be so careful with it. As usual, all necessary information are printed on the packaging. It includes the claims, ingredients, directions for use, caution as well as the expiry date.
SCENT, TEXTURE AND EASE OF APPLICATION
The scent is just right and not overpowering. The cream is opaque white, ever so slightly thicker than the rest of my moisturizer and almost whipped-like. I kind of expect that this will leave some streaky white lines but it actually did not. It blends well on the skin and is very hydrating too. It makes my skin look dewy and instant bright. The only thing is that the moisture level is quite too much for my oily skin that it tends to feel oily/greasy after application. It's not exactly one of those weightless moisturizer so if that's a bit of an issue, you know what to do. Nothing a blotting sheet and a powder can fix it though.
This is a day cream that is a bit tricky to layer under makeup as it makes the base cake like big time. On the other hand, if you have dry skin, the moisture would definitely help blend the foundation to avoid dry, flaky skin. After a few weeks of use, I did not really see much lightening but it's probably because my skin is leaning towards fair skin tone already. On the other hand, it does help in reducing redness and is perfect to apply on days when skin seems to lack some luster. With regular use, skin texture will soften and blemishes are less significant.
So is it worth it? For the price, I would say it is. However, there's a bit of contemplation whether or not I'll repurchase as I'm always on the lookout for new stuff. Also, this product isn't that miraculous for me to trade other skin care products I'm currently using and discovering in my years of blogging.
On a lighter note, go get Ageless Aura if: your skin needs moisture, your skin looks dull and needs brightening,you like natural ingredients, your skin is not allergic to Mulberry Extract and Niacinamide, you're looking for a good maintenance moisturizer to use on a daily basis and you're tight on budget.
