Just a note: this is known as "Olay Pro X Age Protection Lotion w/ SPF 30 in Canada. Not sure why two different names but I double checked and the product I have is identical in ingredients to "age repair lotion"
This is the FIRST sunscreen I've ever been able to wear that doesn't sting, break me out, cause a rash or bumps or otherwise torment my skin!! This is HUGE for me!! I've tried literally dozens of ss products over the years all with the same bad results. It was purely by accident I ended up with this and I fully expected it to be like every other moisturizer with sunscreen I'd tried. I was shocked when instead of the usual mess my skin ends up in after coming into contact with anything SPF, that instead I was left with soft, radiant and calm, protected skin!
If your like me and react at the very word SPF then try this! I also use the Pro X eye restoration complex (awesome!), wrinkle smoothing cream (good but the jar needs to go!) , skin tightening serum (great!) and use the little clarisonic-type cleaning tool and cleanser..(love love love that!) so I'm already a fan of Olay but this moisturizer with SPF 30 surpassed all my expectations. It's a great formula that's packaged to keep fresh. Highly recommend this product! I'm finally able to wear a sunscreen product and will feel better knowing I'm protecting my skin from sun damage, especially important to me since I use vitamin c, glycolic acid and retinol products. Before this I simply tried to avoid the sun by wearing hats etc. not very effective. Thank you Olay for yet another great product! I only wish I'd tried it much sooner. I did try another line of Olays moisturizer with ss a few years ago, but had bad results. I'm soooo happy that this formula works for me! I don't know how they did it, but they made a moisturizer with ss that doesn't ruin my skin. Couldn't be happier with it!
I bought this because I wanted a lotion with a sunscreen and I read this has niamicide (spelling?) which is supposed to increase collagen. Not crazy about this on my slightly oily skin. It never feels like it absorbs and makes me look greasy and feels kind of heavy on my skin which is not great during the humid summer months. I'm not sure if there are sunscreens that don't burn eyes but this is not one. It also makes my skin break out a little and get that bumpy look from blocked pores. That said, I do find that this does a good job of moisturizing and plumping up the skin. Thus, though I have not been using it much because of the above issues, when I do use it it makes the fine lines around my eyes look less noticeable. Would probably be a good product for those with dry skin.
A good moisturiser and sunscreen combo. Since using people have commented that my skin looks luminous. Certainly gives skin a nice moisturised glow with out leaving it feeling greasy. Have no idea what this does for wrinkles as I'm lucky enough not to have any, just using as a preventive measure. My skin does seem more even and softer and I have had no problems wearing it under make up. Most high spf creams have left a white film, and 'bobble' under foundation. Not here. Quite pricey but seems to be lasting a decent amount of time. I would buy again.
PROS: I guess it's not the thickest spf30 I've put on my face. Better scent than most Olay's
CONS: This was no real help for wrinkles, etc. It felt thick and a bit goopy on the skin.
ALTERNATES: For a cheaper choice, Trader Joe's "Enrich lotion" SPF15 for a satin finish. I personally love Replenix Antioxidant Moisturizer SPF 50 (in silver tube) for great moisture and spf protection that doesn't bother my sensitive skin.
In my opinion this day cream with the SPF is totally awesome! I can't believe it's actually a sunscreen because it doesn't feel or smell like a typical sunscreen, plus the Pro-X day cream has great ingredients.
I've been using this day cream for 3 weeks and my face looks bright, smooth, wrinkle-free, and even toned. I was having alot of redness and itching and breakouts before using this cream, and now my face has been transformed into happiness. I like the pump and the red packaging too. I have no complaints.
This product feels moisturizing. However, the last few times I have used this product, I wind up with white substance on my skin. Not only has the product not absorbed properly, but I wind up having to wipe it off my face to remove the white flakes - the first time this happened was on my way to work on the train -- I started to put on make up and wound up having to wipe down my face to get the white flakes off -- and of course my jacket was then full of white flakes - not a very professional look. The last several times, my rosacea has acted up and I wind up red-faced. have a red face fairly soon after using the product. I am going back to Oil of Olay Regenerist which seems to have better ingredients - I can slather this all over my face with no flaking and no redness.
Love this!! I first went with the regenerist line, which gave me good results. Then I wanted more, so I saw a great price at my BJs discount store. I am so happy with this product! I saw results the next morning!!!
I really like this product! I've been looking for a daily sunscreen that I can wear under my foundation. This is it! It has no fragrance and is not oily. It goes on smoothly and is absorbed quickly. My skin appears slightly brighter and smoother. It is expensive but it is less expensive if ordered online at one of the largest retailers for books!
I love this product. I have very sensitive dry skin and have tried almost everything on the market. I noticed a difference in my skin almost immediatley. I will continue to use this from now on.
Update: I still love this stuff. I switched to Anthelios Hydraphase UV because it has an spf 30 mexoryl for my 30 minutes (ha ha) in the winter sun here. Nothing layered well with that moisturizer, not even foundation. My skin doesn't have the same suppleness without greasiness through the day. I am actually going to buy this for my mom for Christmas.
I tried this with a very negative attitude toward drugstore brands but I was lured by SPF 30 (3% avobenzone) within the moisturizer. Amazingly ,it is not too moisturizing so I can wear it under my La Roche Posay block, makeup, and powder for extra protection. I don't look cakey or greasy by the end of the day. My face feels very natural. It absorbs well but not as quickly as most moisturizers with alcohol. But who wants alcohol in their face products? I put this on first, get dressed, then add my anthelios spf 50+, blow dry my hair, then add Almost Makeup. Of course I don't apply powder until I am in the car. In other words, I give all of this layering sufficient time to sink into my face so I don't look cakey. Unfortunately, even though this is a SPF 30 with avobenzone, I've worn layers of titanium, zinc and avobenzone and still came home with darkened melasma. I don't trust any single UVA ingredient on its own. So far, I have no chemical block reactions to this avobenzone, which is a new for me. I usually only tolerate the mix of mexoryl and avobenzone in anthelios. So it is a keeper. It layers well, it protects, no itchy reactions, absorbs well enough, products don't lay on top of it, doesn't over moisturize causing an oil slick, most importantly, no clogged pores or pimples. Keep in mind, I did not buy this for any anti-aging peptides or regeneration of collagen, elastin, etc. Although it has peptides and such, I don't believe in any of it until there are multiple, unbiased scientifically peer reviewed research studies on people to believe it. It was a purchase for practical and proactive purposes.
