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

INGREDIENTS

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

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!

MY EXPERIENCE

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!
