Pro X, Olay's New Miracle Cream

Post-pregnancy and dealing with toddlerhood - my skin is definitely not doing so well. So, when I recently came across the Olay Pro X line's starter set of day cream, night cream and eye cream, I was pretty excited to try it out. Overall, I thought the products were decent and worked well. However, I'm not sure about the younger looking skin in 28 days. Here's a quick breakdown:

Daytime Age Repair Lotion
The lotion was good during the day - it absorbed quickly into my skin, didn't feel greasy and provided a matte finish which is perfect with/without makeup. However, I wish the SPF was slightly higher (it has SPF 30) - with a honey ethnic complexion, I tan so easily and can even get burnt sometimes.

Night Hydra-Firming Cream
This cream did fulfill what it promised - it moisturized really well. Although, I'm not a big fan of night creams because when I go to sleep, I like my face to feel really clean but somehow this one did not bother me as much. I have only used this for about a week so we'll see if my skin glows in a few more weeks.

Eye Restoration Complex
Finally - an eye cream that seems to work...not! All of you moms of toddlers know what I'm talking about when I say I have bags and black circles (note the black and not dark). Even though now I'm getting a decent night's sleep, all those sleepless nights are catching up with me. I was praying that this eye cream would do the trick. Alas, I'm here to let you know that for me, no such luck :( But on the bright side, the cream is great for under makeup and does absorb well similar to the day cream.

But here is the catch - if you're like me and worried about some of those ingredients, especially when a toddler is trying to kiss Mamma's face twenty times a day, I wouldn't get this. The big one that caught my eye was Triethanolamine (TEA) in the day cream. So onward we go to find the fountain of youth!
