I bought this product because I wanted to improve the way my skin looked and felt and was hoping to reverse (or at least delay) the effects of aging!
Olay 7 signs serum says that it fights the 7 signs of aging:
The bottle says with VitaNiacin,
-diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
-Smoothes skin texture
-Evens skin tone
-Improves surface dullness
-Minimizes the appearance of pores
-Reduces the appearance of blotches and age spots
-Soothes dry skin
VitaNiacin is "an exclusive formulation of vitamin B3, vitamin E and pro-vitamin B5 infused with Olay moisture"
For more detailed information on the ingredients in this product I added the Olay website information where you can find a detailed list of ingredients, definitions and explanations of the ingredients ( very helpful with all the huge words listed )
Directions say that you can use this once or twice a day, over entire face after cleansing.
It can be used alone, under moisturizer and makeup, and of course -don't get it in your eyes!
I have combination skin leaning towards dry, I'm 34 with no real wrinkles and just the beginning of fine lines around the eye area and some expression lines/creases.
My skin had started to get a really textured/ bumpy look around the cheek and forehead area and has been pretty dull looking all over, it was dry in most areas.
I had a few freckly looking spots on my nose and cheeks that came around over the last two years, and the pores on my nose and cheeks seem to be very visible ( enlarged?)
The Olay 7 signs serum is clear, lightly and pleasantly fragranced, maybe rosey is the best description.. It goes on smooth, feels pretty creamy/thick even though its clear and looks like a gel.
It is not greasy at all, it absorbs well as you massage it in and actually doesn't feel like you have anything on.You don't have to use a large amount of product either.If you do use to much, it does tend to feel a bit greasy! but even then it will absorb after just a few minutes.I use it under a firming product, then a moisturizer and then makeup (if I'm wearing any that day) I like to wait about 2 minutes after I first apply this before I start applying any of my other stuff, but I don't think it's necessary.
After my first usage ( used it at night)my skin immediately felt baby smooth, and the next morning I wasn't dry and was still silky!I was surprised.
I used it once a day at first by itself (the first couple days) and got great results right away, so I now use it twice a day. I have found that for me, using it once a day was just as effective as twice a day, but I still use it twice a day most of the time.
I've been using it for over a month now and I can't believe how my skin has changed !
It is always silky smooth, the pores are definitely smaller so my skin LOOKS silky as well, the dull look is gone.. I glow now! The patchy spots are very much lighter ( I don't think they'll ever go away!), my skin tone is evening out!
My husband has even noticed!!!
PRICE & WHERE TO FIND IT
You can find this product very easily... any store that carrys the Olay line should have it. I got mine at Walmart..I paid about $14.00 for 1.7oz
I love this product and would definitely recommend it!
