Recently CoverGirl and Olay teamed up to create the Simply Ageless makeup collection. I’m not personally to the need-to-conceal-wrinkles stage yet but I’m always open to trying new things!
CoverGirl was kind enough to send me a sample of their new CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Serum Primer ($10). It’s an anti-aging moisturizer and a foundation primer all in one! It contains Olay Regenerist Anit-Aging Moisturizer that helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Because it’s doing double duty as a moisturizer and primer, it’s one less layer you have to wear on your face, which could be quite beneficial for hot weather and for people with oily skin.
Their website says:
Introducing the three-minute facelift effect*. Start with Simply Ageless Serum Primer. The advanced formula with Olay Regenerist complex helps boost elasticity and smooth skin’s appearance for a finish that looks instantly firmed. Then apply Simply Ageless Foundation to cover fine lines and wrinkles. Together, the results are simply amazing!
I found it to be a little thicker than my usual primers, but there are 2 ways to deal with this. On one hand, it doesn’t dry fast so you can easily smooth your foundation into it and use less for a more natural look. If you don’t get the results you want, then put this product on about 15 minutes before you put your makeup on, giving it time to soak into your skin and moisturize your face. You can also try using a smaller amount and blending well.
Overall, I think this primer performed as well as other makeup primers I’ve tried but it offers the versatility of being a moisturizer AND primer all in one. It’s a great solution for those of you that need to simplify your daily makeup routine or those with fine lines and wrinkles that want the benefits of Olay Regenerist.
