It’s time to face facts: autumn is officially here. And as the temperature starts to dip, it can make our skin look rather dull and in dire need of a pick-me-up. Your skin is constantly shedding dead cells, but when this process slows down (which it often does this time of year) it can dim your complexion and leave it looking a bit ‘meh’.

The good news: there are easy ways to bring back a radiant and healthy glow. So, whenever we hear of new skincare saviours, we always welcome them with open arms in pursuit to fight off that autumn skin slump. Now for the really good news: the latest launch to truly impress us is a wallet-friendly saviour from Olay, and it’s generously reduced today with 50% off at Boots. At £19.00 each, down from £38, the two brightening heroes are a real bargain that’ll do the world of good for your skin.

The Vitamin C + AHA24 Night Cream is packed with vitamin C and alpha-hydroxy-acids – but let's dissect what that actually means for your skin. Vitamin C is an antioxidant which helps to protect the skin's surface, warn off fine lines and most importantly, brighten. The alpha-hydroxy-acid is actually lactic acid: one of the gentler exfoliating extracts that encourages dry, dull skin cells to make way for the brighter ones beneath.

You’d be surprised at how important incorporating a night cream is in your routine. While you sleep, your skin gets to work rejuvenating itself – so a good night cream like this will only help bolster this process. Its deeply nourishing formula sinks into your skin and leaves you with a brighter and refreshed complexion in the morning. It’s exactly the kind of cream you need in your routine as we enter October.

While the night cream is ideal for brightening all-over, the Vitamin B3 24 + Vitamin C Eye Cream is precisely tweaked to work on the delicate skin around your eyes. It combines three powerhouse ingredients – vitamin B3, vitamin C and peptides – to help awaken the under-eye area and improve the overall appearance of your skin.

Vitamin B3, also known as a niacinamide, supports the skin barrier and boosts that all-important hydration. Along with vitamin C and peptides, it will keep you looking bright eyed and bushy tailed throughout the cooler months.

What’s more, both are completely fragrance-free, which is ideal for those with mature skin, as sensitivity often comes hand in hand with age.

The final consensus? When brands make bold claims, we’re always sceptical of the results, and Olay’s promise here is a big one: brighter skin in just 14 days. Is that even achievable? Well, we didn’t exactly see a miraculous transformation in such a short space of time, but we are pleased to report that our skin was certainly left feeling refreshed and rejuvenated even after a few uses.

So, considering the more than fair price tag and results-driven formula, we think this is a new-season skincare treat worth investing in.
