Olay Pro-X Anti-Aging Starter Protocol Review

I'll be the first to admit that skincare can be a little confusing sometimes. With a million different products on the market, it's hard to figure out which products are right for you, and what kind of "system" you need. Add all of that to the fact that many products are super pricey, and the resulting confusion around skincare is understandable. 

When I was at Lucky Fabb, a rep from Olay was there, and gave me their Olay Pro-X Anti-Aging Starter Protocol  to try out. I've been testing it since early September, and feel like I can now give a full review of the system! 

A little background: I've pretty much always used Olay sunscreen during the day, and I've used Olay serums at night for the last year or so, too. 

The Pro-X line is designed by dermatologists, and aims to give purchasers a professional-grade product at a drugstore price point. At $50 for the set, it's not exactly cheap, but I've been using the products almost daily since September, and still have a lot of product left of each item in the kit. My kit came with a sunscreen lotion for day, a night cream, and a restorative eye complex. I've seen kits on shelves at stores that substitute the eye cream for a deep wrinkle cream, but for me, the eye cream was definitely more my speed, since I'm 25 and only have fine lines. 

The daily Age Repair Lotion with sunscreen seemed to have a similar texture to the Olay sunscreens I've used in the past. I like that it was SPF 30, instead of 15. It layered really well under my concealer and powder, and I felt like it really sank into my skin quickly. 

I really loved the Eye Restoration Complex. I have really dark circles under my eyes, and tend to get puffiness under my eyes, as well. I felt like I could really see a difference in both when I was using the eye cream, and the texture was perfect- not too heavy. I have pretty sensitive eyes, and this didn't irritate them one bit! I also used this during the day under makeup, and I liked that it didn't make my eye makeup just slide right off. 

The Wrinkle Smoothing Cream/night cream was excellent, as well. I have fairly "normal" skin, and it was perfect for me. I didn't feel greasy the next morning after using it, but it's kept my skin well moisturized, even with the cold, dry, fall air we've had the last few weeks. I've definitely noticed a reduction in the fine lines that I have, and my skin looks "fresher" when I wake up after applying the cream at night. 

Overall, I think that the Olay Pro-X Anti-Aging Starter Protocol is a great buy. It's perfect for someone that's not totally sure what products are right for them, and it's the perfect chance to try all of the products without committing to full size versions of each individual product.
