Everything Old Is New Again...Revisiting the Olay Regenerist vs. Banana Boat Study

Way back when in 2005, when I first started my Roxiticus Desperate Housewives blog, I posted about my Olay Regenerist vs. Banana Boat Study of skin care products. From August 10th through October 9th, 2005, morning and night, I applied Olay Regenerist Serum (Olay), $16.99 for about 3 ounces, to my right cheek and Banana Boat After Sun lotion (Banana Boat), maybe $4.99 for 16 ounces, to my left cheek. The 2005 final results showed little difference over the long run, but when recently applied, the Olay Regenerist cheek appeared smoother and felt a bit silkier.

I don't know what prompted me to revisit the study, but today I'm going to try it again. As you can see from the Amazon links above, the prices of both products have gone up a bit. This time, I'm going to reverse the test and apply the Olay to my left cheek and the Banana Boat to my right cheek, and we'll give you the results after 60 days, let's commit to a complete report on December 1st. Anyone want to play along?

I have used the Olay eye pod things and thought I could tell a difference. I do use olay as my face moisturizer and the Banana Boat as my body moisturizer. I will be anxious to see the results.
