This product is pretty good at moisturizing, but I found it to be a little greasy and leave a film after applying. When I get a lotion, I really want it to soak in and not feel greasy or filmy. I am not sure why this lotion has a greasy feeling. I used a body lotion by Olay and it was not greasy at all and soaked in great.
Switched from cetaphil!
It's a big YES for me- I had hormonal acne all over my face which are cured now, and was in need of a different regiment to keep hydrated... Cetaphil was too creamy for me (I use it as body lotion) and read about Olay and switched! It's non greasy, doesn't log pores and is very LIGHT on face. This is the only moisturiser that has balanced my oil/tone ... I use jojoba oil along with this at night and it's perfect!!!
Bought this for night and okay spf15 for day.... Works out perfectly!
:D so happy with this product- its really cheap compared to the other bands I've been using :)!!
I really tried to like this product. I found it compared unfavourably with much cheaper tinted moisturisers. It often left me with tide marks of ashy, nubbly grease residue, and it stung. It was a terrible base for powder, and I found the smell offensive. It settled in wrinkles and pores and darkened them. Had to bin it!
The packaging of this cream is good, I like squeezy bottles. The product gets used up quite quickly compared to Clinique cream, the big bottle of Clinique can last me up to a year but I've had the Olay for a few months and I'm already half way through it so price wise they are similar. The texture of the cream is good and the best part of this product is the SPF. It is a great moisturiser but hasn't made significant improvements to the softness of my skin or refined pores.
I love this product, i will definitely repurchase. I tend to only repurchase things once they've ran out, but i have stocked up! I like to be really tan, so ideally I don't like to use things with too much spf unless i'm going to the pool/beach, or outside. This has spf 15, which is fine because i can still tan with this on for some reason, but this smells amazing! like vanilla sunscreen. it is almost unscented, though, the smell is light. It feels like creamy oil, i love it!
This doesn't break me out. I really like that it's fragrance free too - I find the usual olay cream smell a bit cloying and irritating so close to my nose.. I use this twice a day in the colder months and at night in the summer (with the complete care sensitive lotion in the morning). It can get a little bit greasy if you overapply - but I don't mind at night, and it's fine with makeup over the top (I tend to have a bit of oily skin too). I use it up quite quickly, and it's not the cheapest of products, but I've repurchased it a good few times over the past year - because it's moisturising, gentle and helps to protect my skin from the sun.
Lately though, as the weather has become much colder and windier in Scotland I've started looking for something else as it isn't moisturising enough - and applying more just makes my skin greasy. Definitely worth a go if you live in a gentler climate!
good daily moisturizer, light and doesn't grease up your face like so many other less expensive creams. Will carry on buying
THEY CHANGED THE FORMULA!!!
I recently purchased a bottle from Superdrug and am so annoyed...why do companies take a great product and then change the ingredients?
This cream used to be fine, good sunscreen, non-oily, I've used it up till now for as long as I can remember, maybe even ten years or so.
So when I bought a new 200ml bottle, I was surprised that it STUNG on application...it was left a disgusting greasy siliconey film on the skin that simply would not sink in at all...two days later my forehead is covered in tiny blackheads...Olay, you have lost my custom forever.
I've been using this cream for about 3 moths and it has become HG material for me. I have some kind of Combination-Dry-Sensitive skin and break outs have dissapeared, I do have blackheads on my nose but I had them before and I didn't find any remedy that doesn't damage the rest of my skin (if anyone knows, please tell me)
I also have to say that when i get dry sensitive patches around the sides of my nose this does burn a bit.. I don't know if I would recommend to really really really damaged sensitive skins. Otherwise this is simply great.
Price is fine. I don't like the screw cap and the fact that you have to dip your fingers in the jar but I can put up with it.
I really wish the lotion wasn't discontinued, I would have given it a try.
This is for the sensitive skin SPF15 cream formula. I normally use the lotion version. I felt I needed more moisturization so I thought I'd give the cream a go. The lotion is my every day moisturizer with SFP. This cream version is really not much thicker (barely) and isn't any more moisturizing than the lotion. It's just more expensive and you get only about 1/3 of the product you get in the lotion form. Otherwise they're exactly the same. I'll stick to the lotion since it's much cheaper and does the same thing!
