Hello ladieeees! ♥
How are you all? How has your week been so far? 🙂 This week has been a very inspiring one for me. I go to church on Sundays and this week I learnt something beautiful.Usually,the priest gives his sermon and when the mass is done,the priest greets us telling “Have a wonderful week ahead” etc But this week, the priest said just one thing which really got my attention. While bidding adieu he said “Should I say have a lovely week? No, today I won’t do that. How your week goes is completely in your hands. So you go out there and ‘MAKE’ your lovely week!” Isn’t that true? How our days go by is completely in our hands 🙂
Okay, let’s get talking about the product now. Today I present to you- Oil of Olay Provital Energising Moisture Fluid with Illume 🙂 Oil of Olay is nothing but the Olay group of products and this has been used by my mum since her teenage days. She says during those times, one product that was hyped about was this. Today, I am reviewing this product on account of my mum’s experience. Let’s see how this fared for her 😀
Product Name: Oil of Olay ProVital Energising Moisture Fluid with Illume
Price: £ 10 for 100ml. Approx. Rs.850
Product Description by Olay:
Energising Moisture Fluid with ILLUME leaves your skin feeling full of energy. Apply evenly on face and neck in the morning. Based on new Procter & Gamble skincare technology, the product contains Illume, an intensive moisture boost system that contains precious oils. It claims to reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
My mum’s take on Oil of Olay ProVital Energising Moisture Fluid with Illume:
Like I mentioned earlier, I am going to review based on what my mum feels about the product. She has been using this for many years now. There was a time when this wasn’t available here in India and she would tell my dad or her brother to get it and stock up on this one! 😛 I’m sorry, it isn’t available in India even now 🙁 My mum is not more of a makeup person but she never leaves home without applying this one. She has dry skin and this is her go-to cream any day. She just loves this!
This comes in a cream colored bottle with a black cap. The cap has “turn to open” mechanism and is travel friendly. No leakage what so ever. The consistency is neither thick nor too runny, it is just perfect. When applied, it has a very clinical fragrance ( Oil of Olay is scientifically and clinically backed) After blending, it seems like your second skin. No whitish cast or ghostly face.
Firstly, this product has anti-aging properties. The claim that the product reduces wrinkles and fine lines is justified 70% ! 😀 My mum has been using this for a very long time now and she has received many compliments. When she goes to the doctor, the doctor doesn’t believe when she tells her actual age. I don’t know if all that credit can be given to this product alone but I think 60% of that credit definitely goes to this. I don’t want to sound boastful or anything but my mum does look younger. People keep asking me if she is my sister 😛 Aging marks for my mum have reduced using this cream. The product even reduced redness of skin, hydrates the skin, moisturizes and minimizes the pores. It improved her overall texture of the skin. Her skin seems firm and smoother now. My mum uses this as both- day cream as well as night cream. Oil of Olay has been clinically proved to work wonders if used over a long period of time. My mum agrees with that as well. They say all good things don’t come easy, so her long term use has paid off I can say. 🙂 Ingredients mainly used in this are water and glycerine which give a healthy glow to the skin. My mum has dry skin and it worked wonders for her. For oily skin, I would say apply very less quantity as compared to dry skin. The only con with this product is the availability. It is not available at their online website and is available only at specific retail outlets. On the whole, it is a wonder product which stays true to its claims. It has anti-aging properties and that is a boon for women, isn’t it? 🙂
