Olay quality at a generic price

I’m one of those people who never thought about my skin until one day, there was a middle-aged woman staring back at me in the mirror. I have no idea where she came from, but she needed a little help. Ahem. Now I use a complicated combination of products, forever searching for the “one” that will give me back the skin of my youth. (Hint: It doesn’t exist.)

Anyway, one of my current favorite products is Olay Definity Color Recapture, which I think I’ve mentioned here before—it’s basically a tinted moisturizer that also has some nice anti-aging make-you-look-all-dewy-again stuff in it. My skin is pretty sensitive and I wear very little make-up, so for me, this is a perfect compromise between going bare-faced and wearing foundation (which I hate with a passion). Amazon has a decent price on it (about $5 cheaper than I see it at the drugstore), and they have specials occasionally, as well.

Of course, I’m also always looking for a good rescue-my-skin-from-itself-please product to use underneath the Definity, because getting old is horrible. (Well, horrible for your skin. Kind of awesome in other ways.) Today I see that Amazon has Olay Regenerist Daily Regenerating Serum for just $14.44 when you buy via Subscribe & Save, plus there’s a $3 coupon to clip on the page. (That coupon works on a few different products, too, if you don’t want this.) I may try this one out, as I see it listed in the Allure Editors Picks every year and think “I should get some of that,” but then I see something shiny and forget.

Of course, your skin looks perfect just the way it is.


  1. I live in Brazil, and it’s the dry season right now, which is murder on the face. This lotion is da bomb! I only wish it had SPF. Anyway, I am 42 and could pass for a dewy-eyed 41 year old with this stuff.

  2. I feel so dumb – I cannot find the $3.00 coupon to clip. I know it is there somewhere – just can’t see it.

  3. Never mind – I finally found it!

  4. I wish I could “Like” comments here, because I like Kate’s comment. 🙂

  5. Thanks, use this daily and love to have backup so I never run out!!
