Night Resurfacing Elixir

What is Night Resurfacing Elixir?

Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir is meant to fight wrinkles while you sleep, so you can wake up feeling confident and ready to face the world. Put on before bed, the face absorbs the cream through the night to make sure your skin soaks in the anti-aging ingredients. It’s formulated to work effectively but gently, to smooth and exfoliate skin without strong chemical peels.

How Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir is Supposed to Work?

Using hydrates and moisturizers, Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir sinks deep into the face to tighten, resurface, and smooth out the skin. To get this smoothed and refinished feel, Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir uses glycolic acid which they say gently exfoliates the face as opposed to other chemical peels.

Pros

Many similar products are quite oil and greasy when applied to the face. Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir has been reported to go on smooth and absorb quickly. It’s also available at a welcomed at around $20 depending on where you look. But it will probably be easy to find a great price since it is sold at such a wide variety of retailers and online vendors.

Cons

Though reasonably effective in fighting wrinkles, Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir actually leaves the skin extremely sensitivity to the sunburn. In fact the directions say to keep out of the sun after using the product. This is ironic because their pitch was all about feeling confident enough to go outside present yourself to the world once you woke up. But as the clever company Olay is, you can pair Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir with Regenerist UV Defense Regenerating Lotion to protect your skin after using. But after buying both products, have you already spent more than you would just buying the right anti-aging cream in the first place?

Conclusion

Olay does have something rather decent here at a decent price. But that’s what worries us. In many cases, cheap products mean cheap ingredients. And in many more cases, cheap ingredients mean cheap results. While Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir is affordable, it might be better to find a wrinkle cream that will get the job done right without turning you into a sun-sensitive vampire.
