I am used to Aveeno daily moisturizers, but I like Olay, so I decided to try this. It has been a great daily moisturizer. The product is really cheap, so under 10 bucks. Olay is widely available at any pharmacy or Walmart. It comes in a bottle that you must squeeze, and the product gets squeezed out through the top. I honestly dislike the packaging. I find a pump to be favorable when it comes to a moisturizer meant to be used everyday. The moisturizer is white and has an SPF of 15. I do not like to be in the sun, but this helps protect my skin just enough. The thing about products with SPF is that they sometimes feel thick and pore-clogging, but this moisturizer feels light and feels like just enough. The smell is weird, but it doesn't bother me. The scent quickly fades away. The moisturizer doesn't make your makeup look bad either. It absorbs nicely. I really love this daily moisturizer.

I am really surprised how much I like this moisturizer! I've been using it all Fall & Winter as my daytime moisturizer because I wanted something with SPF. I find that it absorbs quickly, does not leave any greasy or sticky feeling, and plays well with my makeup. I absolutely HATE the old lady smell but you get used to it after a few minutes. I also wish the packaging was different (maybe a tube to dispense through the bottom) because the cream is a bit thick and squirts out awkwardly as the product gets lower. Overall, I definitely think it works great and the price is very fair!

I've been using this in the morning, under my makeup since 2013. I have oily, acne prone skin, and I wanted a cheap moisturizer that wouldn't make me too shiny or cause acne. This has never irritated my skin, and never caused cysts or whiteheads. I've had blackheads since I was 10 years old, and I'm not sure if this makes them worse or not. When I follow a strict skincare regime, including salicylic and glycolic acid, I do notice my blackheads start to get smaller/clear up. (Even while still using this in the morning) Before using this I used Purpose dual protect spf 15 in the morning (my dermatologist recommended it), after years of using it I stopped. My face was just way too shiny. I moved on to neutrogena moisturizers, and I still thought my face got too shiny. I tried the daily Cetaphil spf 50 moisturizer, and without a doubt it was the greasiest/slimiest moisturizer I've ever experienced. Anyway, if you're on a budget and have oily skin this moisturizer is worth a try. I really like how makeup applies over it (after letting it dry), and I don't feel the need to use a primer.

Since I've been using this for three years now, I do think I'm going to try some other moisturizers and see if I notice my face clear up more, and will update.

Edit: I lowered this from four to a three. I'm in my early twenties, and in the last few months I've noticed 3 sunspots appear near my eyes. I've been wearing a moisturizer with spf 15 everyday (my dermatologist's recommendation), and the spf in the moisturizer is not adequate protection.

SPF measures UVB rays, which cause sunburns. UVA rays cause pigmetation changes. Even though zinc oxide filters all the rays, it is not in a high enough percentage in this product. I encourage people to read up on this, and how other countries have advanced technology and suncreens that better measure UVA rays. According to reddit, this has a PPD of 2.5. PPD is a scale that measures UVA protection, and a score of 15 or above is ideal. This scale has been used in Europe for years....I'm going to find sunscreens with a rating of 15+ PPD.

Literally if I could show you all my face right now so you could see my pain. About 5 days ago I began implementing this moisturizer into my nighttime skincare regimen (Neutrogena cleansing wipes, Kiehls Oil-free Gel Cleanser, Dickinson's Witch Hazel toner, then this Olay moisturizer). I bought it last week after feeling like I wanted to add a regular moisturizer to my face wash routine (+ after reading such positive reviews here). Little did I know what was in store for my otherwise clear and great skin.
Now, I have only had a couple bad breakouts in my life; the last one was a year ago related to a tragic affair with Too Faced Primed and Poreless. By "bad breakout", I'm talking boils, overfilling pores, and recovery that took weeks, ruined lots of photos, and left blemishes for months after.
Today I chucked this moisturizer in the trash almost in tears because of the condition my skin is in right now. Deep pimples all over my face. My pores are drowning in oil and it seems there is an entrenched swamp of oil beneath the surface of my skin. It feels like there is something toxic weighing in and on my face, and certainly looks that way too. If you are prone even in the slightest to getting clogged pores, this moisturizer will clog them like it's its job leaving you begging for mercy.

I am enjoying this product. It keeps my skin hydrated and the smell is fresh. I have noticed that it helps with my oily as well with just the normal formulation.

Just started using this about a week ago due to the high reviews on beautypedia and I have to say I'm highly impressed. I'm always trying to find the best inexpensive products and I have to say this is a drugstore gem. It has more vitamins and antioxidants than another other drugstore moisturizer I know of, an SPF, and a very faint scent that I actually really love. The packaging is great, the product is super inexpensive for the size, and it leaves my skin looking nice, healthy, and glowing. Absolutely loving this for daytime.

I keep coming back to this moisturizer. It's really that good! My skin is so dry and sensitive. For my skin, this outperforms all other daily moisturizers on the market. I like the soft fragrance and I slather this not only on my face but on my neck, chest, ears, back of hands... wherever there is exposure to the sun. I can get 6 oz. for under $9. It's small investment when you're talking about preventing skin cancer. Although the derms recommend an SPF 30 or more, I do try to avoid the sun and no longer sunbath (unlike my 20's). I use this mainly for incidental exposure (walking to and from the car, sunlight through windows, etc). If I do plan to be outside for any length of time, I will definitely be applying a sunscreen with a much higher SPF. I have been using Olay products off and on for as long as I can remember. Although I'm closer to 40 than 30, I am still mistaken for being in my 20's! Not bad! Even my husband would say he would peg me for around 28 topping out at 30! NICE. I definitely attribute this to Okay products and a healthy lifestyle.

My skin always feels so soft and hydrated after I put a little of this on as well. It looks glowing hand so healthy. I like it better than all the other Olay moisturizers on the market as well.
