Olay Turns 60
A few weeks ago, I visited the Olay Retreat at the very glamourous Mayfair House where I sipped on a lovely, cold drink and looked at what Olay had grown as a brand since the 1950’s when it created by South African chemist Graham Wulff who first started off with the Beauty Fluid and in 2012, Olay has grown significantly and can now be found across the globe.
Olay‘s one of the few brands that’s managed to win the hearts of women worldwide. Many of our mothers and grandmothers love at least one Olay product; my mum once told me that when she lived in Somalia, Olay products were all that she used!
At the retreat I got to look at the packaging throughout the years since Olay has been in existence. It was so cool to see how much the packaging’s changed but my favourite year was in the 1980’s; the packaging was classy, feminine and something you’d love to be seen on your dresser. As the brand has become more sophisticated in their technology, so has their packaging which is sleek and modern.
I got to take away a few of the products you’ll find in this day and age:
Regenerist 3 Point Treatment Cream*: Olay have just released a fragrance free version of this popular moisturiser which is the best selling Regenerist product. It’s a fine line and wrinkle fighter and leaves the skin smooth, plumper and more hydrated. 7 out of 10 women in a 220 women study said that their skin looked and felt firmer and lifted.
Regenerist 3 Point Super Serum*: This serum packed with an amino-peptide complex helps to firm the skin and is supposed to be applied tapped onto the face with the fingertips and massaged in gently.
Regenerist Renewal Elixir*: I’ve been using this serum for a few months and I was quite glad to get this again as it’s a fantastic serum! When I first tried this, my skin felt so much smoother just overnight.
Regenerist Flawless Skin Cream*: If you find using a separate SPF to be a tedious task, this moisturiser has an SPF 30 which doesn’t leave the thick, greasy layer that most SPF’s cause.
