USER REVIEWS: Olay Luminous Niacinamide + AHA

Olay has done the research and spent the last ten years developing a range that gives you the benefits of both Niacinamide and AHA.

Niacinamide is a type of Vitamin B3 that’s packed with essential vitamins. It’s for fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores.

AHA stands for Alpha Hydroxy Acid. It’s water-soluable, and a game-changer for dry skin that needs a moisture boost.

Traditionally, skincare products usually contain either Niacinade or AHA. However, Olay has found a way for both to work together.

The result? Two hardworking products that can change your complexion. The Olay Niacinamide + AHA Moisturiser and Super Serum can leave your skin looking smoother, clearer, and brighter.

You may even notice a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The range has been through clinical trials, with positive results.

Olay Niacinamide + AHA range is best suited to those with dry, normal, or oily skin.

  • Olay Luminous Niacinamide + AHA Moisturiser RRP $59.99
  • Olay Luminous Niacinamide + AHA Super Serum RRP $59.99

You can buy the shop the range at Priceline, Chemist Warehouse and Coles.

5 thoughts on “USER REVIEWS: Olay Luminous Niacinamide + AHA

  1. Mine arrived while I was away and was on my doorstep in the sun for day or two until my mum was around to feed the dogs.

    The package was a bit worse for wear as if it had been on quite a journey but the jar it comes in is lovely and fits snuggly in your hand. I however, had trouble getting into the cream. The lid was fine it was the white inner top with the tiny raised bar that I couldn’t get off, whether this was due to being outside for a day or so, I am not sure but it spun around, but wouldnt lift off. Anyway after multiple attempts and a knife, I left it til the next day. Needless to say it came off eventually and the first thing I noticed was the smell being lovely and fragrant, not too over powering and smelt of peaches.

    I used the cream on my hands for the first few days to see how it went. As I said, the fragrance was lovely, the cream was light and applied very smoothly and went a long way. I enjoyed using it and I could still smell the fragrance after several hours, but lightly, not overbearing at all.
    After a few days, I started using it on my face and it felt nice, not heavy and went a long way.

    I would definitely buy this depending on the price.

  2. What I really loved about the Olay Luminous AHA Moisturiser was the fact I could use this both morning and evening, a bonus as far as moisturisers are concerned.
    The 50g jar is stunning, patterned beautifully and presented with a beautiful shiny silver coloured lid.
    The white cream contained is slightly scented and soft and luxurious when applied, quite sparingly as it goes a long way. I really liked the feel of it on my skin, it absorbed so easily and plumped my facial skin’s appearance.
    I concentrated on the two pigmented spots on my face and noticed slight fading which with continued use should disappear more.
    This lovely cream contains lactic acid which gets on the skin surface and niacinamide (a form f vitamin B3) to penetrate deep into the skin layers. As well as these in this dermatologist formula are pro-vit B5 and vitamin C.
    Also it is free from sulphates, parabens, petrolatum, mineral oils or parabens.
    Following the guidelines for most day and night creams I used cleanser, serum and then my Olay AHA.
    Truly recommended!

  3. Thanks to beauty and lace for this trial! This moisturiser comes in a lovely jar that makes it easy to get the product out of. The product itself is easy to apply, lightweight and it spreads really far so you don’t need much at all to cover the face however for that reason it may not suited to dry skin, but for me in the middle of summer it was perfect.

    One of my favourite things about this is the scent – it’s like peaches and I really enjoy that when I apply it. I’ve used this cream for a couple of weeks now and my skin is looking smooth and perhaps a bit brighter than prior to use. I will continue to use as I think the effect may be stronger after a longer period. I only use this cream at night because I need a cream with SPF for day time use.

    The product is a bit expensive so I’m undecided yet if I will repurchase, but I will wait to see the impact after longer term use.

  4. Thank you for this trial opportunity. Olay has always been a dependable favourite of mine because it just worked well for me for many years.

    This cream also lived up to my expectations.

    The lid was packed very tightly and I spent quite a few minutes trying to figure out if it’s a screw top lid or needed a good grip to flip open. I think the lid needs some improvement, such as a little print or arrow saying, lift me or unscrew or something or needs to be easy to open.

    I think anyone with any hand issues would find it very difficult to open or maybe figure our how it open it in the first place. It was a little annoying.

    Once I figured it out, I was able to open it and use the cream properly. It’s a screw top lid! Inside there’s a plastic seal lid as well. The product comes in a cardboard packaging.

    The cream is medium thick and rich, and only a little bit is needed. It is a 50g plastic jar and feels heavy and still easy to use. The scent is mild and slightly floral fruity.

    There are a lot of good ingredients in this little jar such as AHA, Pro-vit B5, Vitamin C and Niacinamide.

    There are no nasties such as sulphates, petrolatum, parabens, mineral oils or phthalates.

    The cream was easy to use during day time and night time. Due to the ingredients, sunscreen is a must during day time (we should be using it anyway).

    I enjoyed using this cream on my face, neck, and décolletage daily. I am hoping it will work to fade any dark spots and blemishes.
    I would recommend this cream moisturiser.

  5. I’m a long time user of Olay products (My usual face cream is Olay Collagen) so I was delighted to trial their new face cream with AHA.
    My skin is very dry and I was quite often applying my moisturiser twice a day. I found the Olay with AHA to be extremely effective for dry skin it had a gel like feel and was easy to apply and I only needed to apply once a day. It absorbed well and didn’t pill on the skin. After the first week my skin was plumper and less dry.
    I love that this cream can be used day and night. During the day I applied the face cream and immediately applied an SPF50 sunscreen.
    I noticed in Olay’s advertising it is recommended to use with an AHA serum but I decided for this review I would just use the face cream on it’s own.
    After three weeks of use I can honestly say my skin feels so much better but it hasn’t had any fading affect on the sunspots on my face. I do intend to keep using this product and also buy the companion serum.
    Oh, and the jar looks pretty in my bathroom.
