Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

Whether you are just dipping your toes into the retinoid world or looking for an effective, no-fuss product that will visibly improve skin and won't break the bank, the Olay Regenerist Retinol24 line fits the bill.
This fragrance-free cream is perfect to slather on before bed. It delivers a big dose of hydration and retinol so you are left with little to no irritation.
I can honestly say that this is the best retinol moisturizer I’ve ever tried at this price point. It’s comparable with most of the more expensive ones I have tried over the years

What reviewers didn't like

since skincare isn't one size fits all, we recommend slowly introducing retinol into your routine by using it two to three times a week and monitoring your skin for reactions (especially around the eyes, an especially delicate area) before upping your use.
This is a retinol night cream. I would not recommend using it (or any other retinol product) for daytime.
