I like the fact that it doesn't smell like sun screen & it's not a super thick consistency. Leaves my skin feeling soft. The packaging is nice to. continued >>
My skin is oily with occasional breakouts, not extremely sensitive but has reacted to a few products in the past.
I was looking for a new moisturizer and saw this. It has 3 kinds: one for normal, dry, or sensitive skin. I went for the sensitive one cuz I was in a hurry and my first impression when I applied it was that it felt nice on my skin. However, a few hours later, my skin was oily and it was rather red and bumpy and greasy, almost irritated. The weird thing is, whenever I put this on at night and wake up in the morning, my skin looks fine. No redness or breakouts. But during the day, it's totally opposite.
I took a closer look at the packaging and it says that its purpose is to mainly prevent sunburn. I did see SPF on the bottle but just about every moisturizer has SPF in it, so I didn't really think it was sunscreen. But L'Oreal says on their packaging that it is, and that's actually what it is. A sunscreen. Not a good moisturizer.
My question is, why not put it in the sunscreen aisle of the store and why advertise it as moisturizer when your packaging says different?
I will not repurchase because I am mostly in need of a REAL moisturizer. Not a sunscreen.
If you need a facial sunscreen in the summer then try this. If you need a moisturizer, look the other way.
I have oily skin and this day lotion doesn't make any oilier. Non-greasy, oil-free, and it has SPF25 for both UVA and UVB and claims 48 hours moisture. I wash my face at least twice a day so I can't prove that 48 hrs claim. No sun burn in the winter outings but obvious reason, this is not sufficient for summer beach trip.
I paid $7 for 4oz bottle from CVS with regular price. I also bought "normal skin" version (no expiration date for SPF) and I got greasy face pretty fast. These must be new products, I can't find in many stores. Both bottles I bought are the last ones from the case (CVS locked them up). Both are made in USA, unlike most Olay products.
I posted pictures above and you can also see ingredients.
