The term retinol can be intimidating to some. While the name itself sometimes brings about questions regarding what the hell it does, those who are familiar with the product know that if used incorrectly, the vitamin can do serious damage to the skin. Also many retinol products are super expensive, and for the most part found only on the shelves of luxury beauty retailers. 

But what if we told you that one of our favorite drugstore skin-care brands just launched not one, but three new retinol-packed concoctions that are both gentle and affordable? Looks like Olay is on to something here, and it's worth trying. 

Olay may be a drugstore favorite, but it just got a whole lot more luxe. 

And that's because it just launched its first ever retinol collection, one that promises to hydrate, brighten, and minimize pores while smoothing and evening skin tone — all without irritation!

The new Olay Regenerist Retinol24 collection is formulated with a combination of Vitamin B3 and Olay’s Retinoid Complex, which includes retinol and retinyl propionate, for a three-product trio that deeply penetrates the skin and does way more than assist with wrinkles.

Now we know what you're asking: "Another retinol? Really?" And trust us, we understand. But it's not every day that such retinols come at such an affordable price and truly do it all. So ahead, check out the collection that will make even the snobbiest of skin-care lovers reconsider.
