Beauty Find - Olay ProX Anti-Aging Nightly Purifying Micro-Peel

There's nothing like a great skincare product that basically does ALL the work for you as you sleep...

Olay ProX Anti-Aging Nightly Purifying Micro-Peel is a surprisingly mild, yet very effective exfoliator.  If you're looking to brighten and improve the tone of you skin without a harsh solution, this is a great option.

The peel works to promote more rapid skin exfoliation and improve the look of fine lines/wrinkles. The application was very easy.  I simply twisted the cap open and the interior dropped automatically filled with the product.  Then I squeezed a small amount into my palm (about a dime-sized amount) and applied it to my face an neck after cleansing (avoiding my eye area).

I didn't add any additional products before going to bed at night (unless my drier areas felt very dry, in which case I did add a bit of a night cream or sleeping mask.  I used every night for a week, and really loved the results.  My skin had a brighter look and was very soft and a bit more even.  There were a few hyper-pigmentation spots left over from a break out that were significantly lightened after 7 days.
The Olay ProX Anti-Aging Nightly Purifying Micro-Peel is clear and the texture is very lightweight, thin and soft. It sank right in without leaving any residue on my skin.  There was also very little fragrance to speak of.  While my skin tone improved, I didn't see a lot of flaking of my skin during the exfoliation process.

Now that I've done the peel for over a week straight, I will go back to using it a few times a week to maintain my results. Note: Remember, using a peel product like this exposes skin to more burning and sensitivity to the sun, so in the morning after cleansing, you must apply a minimum of SPF15 sunscreen or lotion/makeup product that contains it.

As with many of the Olay ProX  products I've used over the years, this is another winner that costs more than their general Olay product line, but is worth every penny for the enhanced formula and results. - RLB
