The Best Inexpensive Face Cream

Price tags don't sell products, results do! As someone who takes pride and careful consideration when caring for my skin, I've never seen the value in shelling out hundreds of dollars on moisturizers that mask flaws rather than improve them. If you've been reading my blog for a while you'll know that I've used Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream since high-school, a product that was kindly recommended by my mom.
I can remember telling her, " I'm young, I don't need anti-aging products!" I'm sure you can envision her eye-roll and exasperated reaction to my reply. Luckily, she schooled me a bit on the benefits of starting an anti-aging regime earlier rather than later as a preventative measure. Now older, and a little wiser and can certainly testify to my mother's advice. Although I've dabbled with other brands, including a very pricey facial cream I always end up coming back to Olay Regenerist.
The formula is creamy and gently glides on skin, creating a strong barrier to combat the signs of aging while boosting the overall hydration and brightness of your skin; all within just a few days' time. One thing I've found particularly promising about this product over the years is how it continues to improve the appearance of fine lines, which I especially notice when my skin isn't properly hydrated or if I'm using another moisturizer. If you already have an established skincare routine, I would highly recommend doing a trial run and replacing your current moisturizer or cream. The product itself has fit seamlessly into my skincare routine, blending with my daily serum and nightly toner.
The anti-aging cream also acts as a perfect primer, so when applying makeup I'm always able to use a lighter hand, and who doesn't love that? I suppose I have my mother to thank for stressing the importance of anti-aging products and suggesting Olay regenerist moisturizer, well that and putting up with my teenage attitude!
