First of all, it has a different texture – a bit thicker and creamier. There’s no wait for the serum to be absorbed. You can put foundation on immediately after. Also, the reflective mineral pigments give the skin an instant glow. If your skin tone is even enough, you could even go bare-faced with Olay’s Micro-Sculpting Serum.

As for ingredients, the Micro-Sculpting Serum has additional cell communicating ingredients to tell the skin how to behave in a younger fashion: Niacinamide (4th of 30), Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4 (9th), and Carnosine (13th).
The Daily Regenerating Serum has both Niacinamide and Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-3 (the former INCI name for Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, a.k.a. Matrixyl, a collagen stimulating peptide), but in lower concentrations (5th and 11th of 26).
There Are A Few Other Important Differences In Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Serum:
- Water is the 2nd ingredient rather than the first.
- It contains the most powerful Natural Moisturizing Factor known, Hyaluronic Acid (in its salt form).
- It is paraben free.
- It costs one-third more than Olay Regenerist Daily Regenerating Serum.
Only you can decide if the extra cell communicating ingredients, instant glow and instant absorption are worth the extra money to you.
