I like using products they give a nice glow to the skin. I am not saying I am into whitening products; but it is nice to have that subtle glow, a radiance of sorts. Having heard a lot of good things about Olay and serums in general, I picked up my first ever serum – Olay White Radiance Intensive Brightening Serum.
The product claims to “Intensive treatment with high concentration of whitening active & dual color vitamin beads. Tackles surface and hidden whitening issues; for luminous fairness. White Radiance has high concentration of CelLucent whitening active, Vitamin B3, Natural Plant Whitening Extract and dual color vitamin beads. Tackles both surface and hidden whitening issues like spots, darkness, and uneven skin tone. Non-greasy formula. Use with UV cream/lotion during day time.
- From first use, skin looks brighter
- See dark spots & uneven tone visibly reduced
- With regular use, tackle hidden whitening issues
- For natural, Luminous Fairness from deep within* (*in the epidermis)”
My Experience with Olay White Radiance Intensive Brightening Serum
On first impression I was really fascinated with the packaging. The serum comes in transparent packing with a pump mechanism. There is a base / level at the bottom, and as you use the product the base moves up. It is quite effective and reduces product wastage. The serum has a runny consistency and the beads in the solution dissolve easily. I didn’t buy this product hoping to whiten or lighten my skin. But, the product claims that and rather failed at it. However, it added a subtle glow to my face moisturizing and plumping it up.
The serum is very lightweight and gets absorbed into the skin in a jiffy. Oil skinned beauties – this will work for you. It works well under makeup and hasn’t broken me out. Overall, I am happy with my purchase. However, I wish it worked on lightening the marks on my face, and that it were a little more economical. Either way I am happy with my first serum.
