Can I let you in on a little secret? I have completely fallen in love with the Olay Retinol24 night cream and let me tell you why!
6 months ago, I had no idea what retinoids could do for me and my skin. For the most part, I’ve always thought that I’ve had great skin and that it couldn’t get any better.
In fact, I rarely get pimples or acne. I wash and moisturize my face daily. So, what more could I do?
Well, I’m happy to report that after using the Olay Retinol24 Night Cream for the last 6 months, I can confidently say that my skin is smoother, brighter and so much plumper.
I even started seeing results within the first 5 weeks!

Why Choose Olay Retinol24 Night Cream?
If you’re reading this, you’re probably wondering how Olay Retinol24 Night Cream compares to others, well, keep reading!
At the beginning of my retinoid journey, I will admit, I was hesitant about trying it out. I wondered: how it could possibly help someone in their twenties? Isn’t it only for “older” skin? How could it possibly help me?
Well, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that anyone can use it! You can actually start using retinoids in your mid-twenties to help prevent aging.
Prevention is Key!
It should be noted, that I have combination skin, so naturally, I was excited at how much more even my skin is now than when I started 6 months ago.
One of the biggest improvements that I’ve noticed is how much more easily my makeup applies to my skin. Admittedly, I would previously have to use two different kinds of primer to even out my skin, prior to my makeup application.
Most importantly, I should also mention that when I do decide to go bare face, I feel super confident to show off my skin to my husband and friends! 😀
I’m so happy with the results, that I’ve recommended it to all my female friends who ask me what I use.
Use the Olay Retinol24 Night Cream at night. Retinoids as skincare ingredients are sensitive to UV rays and can break down when exposed. Make sure to use SPF in the morning!
How quickly did I start seeing results with Olay Retino24?
As mentioned above, I’ve been using retinoids for 6 months. However, I started seeing results within the first 5 weeks of use.
Check out my skin before and after below!
A little goes a long way; you don’t have to use a lot all at once 🙂
In fact, when chatting with my family or my audience, I suggest that they introduce any new product slowly into their skincare routine.
To clarify, when you start using a new product in your skincare routine, try to first take a pea size amount and see how your skin reacts to retinoids. Then slowly build from there.
As of now, I am using about two pea size amounts every night. One bottle of the Olay Retinol24 Night Cream lasts me around 5 months.
Extra Skin Care Tips
If you haven’t already figured it out by now… I think it goes without saying that I am obsessed with skincare. Clearly, I find so much joy in taking care of my skin.
Incorporating the Olay Retinol24 Night Cream into my nightly routine was quite easy. After testing it out to make sure that my skin wouldn’t react to retinoids, I switched my cream and voila!
Here are some extra tips to help you with your skincare journey!
- Moisturize day and night
- Exfoliate (at least once per week)
- Use the correct cleanser for your skin type
- Drink lots of water
- Get as much sleep (I’m a mom of three, so this is a hard one for me)
- Clean your makeup brushes
- Try to eat some greens (Yum)
Again, it’s all about your own personal preference. Good skin doesn’t happen overnight and it is definitely worth investing your time in!
Olay Retinol24 is available as a Night Serum, Night Cream (which is what I use every night), or Night Eye Cream. In addition, you can use them all, or just one, the formula is the same but it depends on what you like better.
So let me ask you! Are you excited yet?! 6 months ago I decided to try it out and I can confidently say that the Olay Retinol24 Night Cream has officially been added to my re-buy list for many years to come.
