Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Serum

I've been a fan of Olay serums for ages, so when I received their new serum to trial I was very excited. I've used the whole bottle of my Micro Sculpting Serum so am ready to give my opinion of it. 

Olay says: Dramatically firms the appearance of sagging prone areas - around the eyes, jaw line and neck. This serum has the highest concentration of our signature amino peptide complex to date.
After two weeks of use: hydrates to regenerate skin's appearance and help firm the appearance of sagging prone areas. Reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

This is a really nice serum. I love the way it makes my skin feel. Unlike other serums I've used, this feels more like a light cream than a serum, it doesn't have the silicony feel that most other serums have. It has a chemically smell that's not very pleasant, however it fades quickly and isn't noticeable five minutes after application. It makes my skin feel soft and smooth. Other than that I didn't notice any change in my skin from using my Micro Sculpting Serum. It didn't reduce the appearance of my fine lines and as I don't have any sagginess I can't comment on that.

Would I buy this?  For extra hydration in winter, yes. As an anti ageing serum, no.
