A good moisturizer can totally transform your complexion, especially when it’s formulated with powerful anti-aging ingredients to lift, tighten, and brighten your skin. Everyone thinks that the best anti-aging moisturizers will cost them an arm and a leg, but there are actually so many affordable options out there–and a majority of them are waiting for you in your local drugstore!

In fact, we’ve heard that the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is not only best drugstore moisturizer for wrinkles, but that it basically works better than Botox! Here’s what you need to know:

Key Benefits: 


-Uses a moisture-binding formula and instantly plumps and lifts surface cells.

Promising Reviews From Amazon Shoppers: 


"I didn't care for the scented version but this fragrance-free version is exactly what I was looking for. Was using Cerave PM moisturizer but I needed something stronger as I'm getting older and my skin feels dryer. Me: middle age, sensitive, acne prone, combination to dry skin. I use it as my night moisturizer. Keeps my skin supple, not oily, just comfortable and moisturized. I can tell a difference when I don't use this." -KN 


"I have sensitive skin from too much youthful suntanning, so before trying this Olay Regenerist micro-sculpting cream I had been using Aveeno facial moisturizers to soothe my skin which has some residual redness. After reading the glowing recommendations about this product and particularly with its Good Housekeeping seal of approval, I decided to try it, happily finding it in a truly fragrance free type (no scent at all) besides the regular mildly scented. It is wonderful to report that the product is not only agreeing with my skin, it is actually IMPROVING its texture. My mid-brow furrows (which I try to control with Frownies, with some success) are noticeably smoother, my smile lines have diminished a bit, jawline sag has lifted, and my skin appears luminous, and this is only in the first few months of use! My late grandmother always loved this skin care company when it was called Oil of Olay, and she had the most beautiful line-free complexion into old age -- all I can say is, 'Grandma, I should have listened to you!', as I am quite impressed with this product." - Jancal 


"My absolute favorite moisturizer! Scent is very light! Doesn't break out my sensitive skin. I was usually Estée Lauder moisturizer before this that cost more than double - I switched to olay regenerist and never looked back. It's less than half the cost and works better than the more expensive brand! Noticeably softer skin and evened out my skin tone!" - Kristen Banco
