Olay Pro-X Vs Olay Regenerist: Which works best?
Thereâ€™s a huge following for Olayâ€™s older anti-aging line, Regenerist, but there are also die-hard supporters of the Pro X line.
Would you like to know which one really is the best one to help you fight wrinkles and look younger?
Then read on. By the end of this article, youâ€™ll know once and for all which product should earn a spot in your youth restoring regimen.
Whatâ€™s Olay Say?
Olay claims that their Regenerist line, launched in 2003, will help to regenerate your skinâ€™s appearance without needing to take drastic action such as surgery. It does so by using their patented amino-peptide complex.
Their newer line, Pro X, was launched in 2009 and claims to go head to head with a leading prescription wrinkle cream. They say that it reduces the appearance of wrinkles by hydrating your skin and they also say that it significantly improves the moisture barrier in your skin after 6 months of treatment, which helps keep you younger looking longer.
Whatâ€™s In Them?
Regenerist products contain the amino-peptide complex that includes a B3 complex, green tea extract, allantoin, vitamin E, B complex vitamins, and glycerin. Most of the day creams also have UVA/UVB sunscreens as well. Though this line is older, there are newer products that include some fragrance-free versions of the sculpting cream and serum.
Pro X products contain the B-complex vitamins as well as some of the same peptides that are in the Regenerist line. Not all of them though, and the Pro X also doesnâ€™t have the other vitamins and natural ingredients.
Another ingredient, hexamidine, has the potential to restore the moisture barrier in your skin. Finally, the Deep Wrinkle Treatment also contains retinyl propionate, a form of vitamin A thatâ€™s been proven to be as effective as retinol or other forms of vitamin A found in prescription anti-wrinkle creams. Itâ€™s also listed close to the top of the ingredients list which is a good sign that thereâ€™s enough in the cream to actually be effective.
What Do Users Say?
Pro X users are much more satisfied with this line that users of other retinol-containing products. Olay stresses the fact that it uses a base that makes it less likely that the retinol will be irritating. Still, a few people did suffer from breakouts and this seems to be the primary complaint with the entire line.
There are also a few people who claim that the products didnâ€™t work for them or were too sticky. There were also some users who took exception to the heavy smell of some of the products in the Pro X line. For the most part though, people like it and see moderate results.
Regenerist users are extremely happy with the line as well. The few complaints about this line include people who saw no results and people who had an issue with the products being too greasy. This was mostly from people who had oily skin to begin with.
People with dry skin loved the products and the fact that there are now unscented versions of a couple of the creams is an added appeal to many. It doesnâ€™t seem to affect sensitive skin and even those who said that they didnâ€™t see a reduction in wrinkles agreed that the products made their skin feel wonderful.
The two product lines offered by Olay share some ingredients but itâ€™s the ones that they donâ€™t share that really make the difference in the products. The Pro X line seems to be loved more by people with normal to oily skin that arenâ€™t sensitive to breakouts or reactions, though there are fewer reactions to this product than other retinol-containing products.
The Regenerist line may be more suitable to people who have normal to dry skin because it really is extremely moisturizing. The vitamin and peptide complex that the line is based upon seem to do a good job of living up to Olayâ€™s claims. Even though this is the older of the two lines, Olay really was ahead of the game when it created the complex.
