We’ve all heard about and have probably tried serums that promise to boost our skin’s health from within via the concentrated amount of goodness in them. Adding on to our list of serums we love, like the Lancôme Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl Serum and Bobbi Brown’s Intensive Skin Serum Foundation, is the Olay Regenerist Miracle Duo.
What are they, you ask? The duo consists of the Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence and the Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream which should be used together as the name suggests. We had a fun afternoon with the Olay team in Singapore some time ago where we tried and tested the duo for ourselves, much to our skin’s delight.

The Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence essentially works to prepare your skin to better absorb the Micro-Sculpting Cream that comes after. Simple enough to incorporate into our daily routine, we cleanse and tone before using the Pre-Essence, followed by the Micro-Sculpting Cream and continue with our moisturiser, sun protection and makeup after.
Texture-wise, the water-oil emulsion of the Pre-Essence Serum is slightly but not too watery and leaves the skin feeling moisturised, dewy and plumped up. Penetrating quickly into the skin, it works to boost surface cell metabolism and renewal, leaving behind a well-hydrated, smooth and supple feel.
Once our skin is ready for maximum absorption, the Micro-Sculpting Cream is applied as a luxurious treat, which also acts as a great makeup base. At night, especially if we have a big day ahead, we like to apply a slightly thicker layer of this as a leave-in mask.
The Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence retails at RM79.90 for a 40ml bottle while the Micro-Sculpting Cream is priced at RM99.90 for a 50g tub.
