The Oil of Olay regenerist products. And not just because they made Dr. Oz’s list of things that actually work, but because they are available in the drugstore and are cheaper than almost everything else.
Bossy has written about this stuff before and it was way funnier back then, but here’s the deal: last year Bossy researched the best Face Repair cream on the internet, and when Bossy says she researched it she means she made her husband do it.
And Bossy’s husband learned that all of the face creams–those that supposedly help wrinkles and those that help eye bags–are nearly all the same. The really, really, really pricey products contain the exact same stuff as the cheaper drugstore brands, and all of them are questionable when it comes to doing what they say they’ll do, except that applying moisture to the face as we age is always a good thing.
And then Bossy’s husband found Oil of Olay regenerist line at the top of several lists for both its effectiveness and because it’s a best buy.
Bossy bought the product pictured above first—the eye-lifting serum. Bossy applies only a wee dot of this stuff around the eyes and between the eyes every night before going to bed.
It’s silky and light and Bossy wishes she could bathe in it.
Bossy then purchased Oil of Olay’s Total Effects, and even though her friend Stella swears by it, the texture is a bit thicker than the serums, and when applied feels more like sunblock. Also Bossy didn’t like the slight perfumey smell because it made Bossy feel as though she was washing her mouth out with soap, which was when her friend Stella found her a Total Effects with no odor, and aren’t you glad you don’t have to chase down products for picky Bossy?
But due to this whole poverty thing, Bossy decided she needed to make do with only one Oil of Olay product at night, and so she is sticking with the eye lifting serum, even though there isn’t a whole lot of eye-lifting going on that Bossy can tell–except she doesn’t think her eyes have dropped any, so that’s a good thing.
Just be aware because it’s hard to know looking at the above photo: if you go to purchase this product, it’s not the size you may think. Here’s Bossy standing near hers:
