Today, I’m going to discuss the bestselling dark spot corrector: Olay Tone Perfection Serum.
Does this product live up to its claims? Let’s find out. ⭐
ⓘ In today’s post, I’ll share my 2¢ on Olay Tone Perfection Serum!
Olay Tone Perfection Serum
If you’re on a limited budget, Olay’s got you covered with its budget-friendly Tone Perfection Serum.
This 1.3 oz product features two main ingredients:
- Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide): Found in yeast & root vegetables, niacinamide helps brighten your skin tone by suppressing melanosome transfer from melanocytes to keratinocytes (in English, it prevents melanin from reaching the surface of your skin) (source: Are Natural Ingredients Effective in the Management of Hyperpigmentation? A Systematic Review, 2018)
- Vitamin C (Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate): This is yet another derivative of L-Ascorbic Acid. SAP is stable at a pH of 7 but is less effective than pure vitamin C and also has some more difficulty penetrating your skin barrier (source: Stability, Transdermal Penetration, and Cutaneous Effects of Ascorbic Acid and Its Derivatives, 2012)
Olay claims the Tone Perfection Serum will help you achieve “noticeably brighter skin on day 1 and more even skin tone in just 2 weeks.” It also claims to renew dull skin and refresh your complexion.
The product has a light cream texture and uses 19 ingredients in total (including thickening agents). Notably, it’s free of parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, synthetic dyes, and fragrances.
In terms of results, there’s been positive feedback from customers about clearer and smoother skin, reductions in acne marks, more even skin tone, as well as the light texture and quick drying time.
My Verdict: If you have a limited budget (or you love the Olay brand), the Tone Perfection Serum offers a double-shot of Vitamin B3 and Vitamin C in a 1.3 oz bottle for under $30 right now. 👍
