Was not right for me, too heavy. Plus it stank to high heavens and had a waxy texture. Pores never looked so huge, magnified each and every fine line. Sat on my face for hours without sinking in. Returned to store.
Really like my Olay Regenerist Night Recovery Moisturizing Treatment. Really did wonders for my dry skin during the last winter time. One thing is if you are acne prone I would advise staying away from it. A lot of my girlfriends steer clear of this product because they claim it broke them out.
On that note, I have never seen a pimple from it and really overall love this product. Its so silky and smooth and leaves my face feeling invigorated the whole next day. I truly look forward to putting this on my face throughout the day and it used to give me excitement when bed time is coming!
I just saw a recent reviewer explain she got pimples from this, and sometimes I do too. I`m using it more as handcream till it`s finished.
I find it a soft, lovely feeling cream and it`s hydrating but I do get pimples forming when I`ve used this.
I prefer using Olay`s black labelled night cream with BHA in it, I forget the name right now, or Regenerist Serum or Neutrogena the dark blue and silver one for night with retinol and hyaluronic acid.
I think Paula was right about the jar packaging. The good antioxidents burn out fast in the jar package which is open to the air. Pump or squeeze tube are better. I wonder if the antioxidents when they go, become irritating because this stuff worked best when new. Now a few months later, the pimples.
I've never broken out from a night cream ever in my life but this stuff gave me pimples on my chin, nose, forehead all at once like I have never seen my skin do before. This happened a few days after i started using it. I thought it was a coincidence and have now been using it for 3 weeks and I've a face full of pimples. NEVER buying it again.
This retails for about $20, but I got it for $16 at a big box warehouse. To me, the price isn't really that bad. I was using a sample of something that was almost 4 times the price of this.
So far, I like it. It does moisturize, without being too rich. It does make the skin feel smoother in the morning. I can't complain. The scent doesn't bother me. Then agian, scented products don't bother me unless they cause a rash. I would say this is good and affordable. continued >>
I use it but would switch to something else if I could find a better cream. The pro is that my skin does look a bit smoother in the morning after I use it. However the effect doesn't last more than a day (ie it's not really fixing the skin problems, just masking them). Also, it's not very moisturizing and I still get flaky skin sometimes with it.
My mom uses this, and she gave me one to try too. It broke my face out terribly the first time I used it!! I have normal skin on the dry side, and I rarely break out badly, but this stuff did it! I tried it a second time a few days ago, hoping that the first time was a coincidence. Not so, this product broke my face out again, even on my cheeks! My cheeks tend to be the driest parts of my face, and I have NEVER broken out like this product made me on my cheeks. The packaging is nice, but the product is terrible, especially for the price. The smell is also very overpowering, not super terrible, but there's definitely a more "older woman" scent. I definitely would not recommend this.
Once again, Olay makes a nice product with an intolerable smell. I liked the way this worked and loved the elegant formula, but neither I nor anybody else in the house could deal with the strong lingering fragrance. I had to return it. Olay, when are you going to get the message?
Okay, yes, the smell is perfume-y and a bit overbearing (I smell like my mom after putting this stuff on). However, it really does effectively hydrate my skin - I am 28 years old with combo skin, and I'm using night creams for prevention. That being said, I can't slather on a generous amount of this cream or else I break out, but using a moderate and reasonable amount of this product at night does make my skin feel soft and hydrated in the morning, proving that this product does contain ingredients that effectively smooth out your skin. As for the price, I don't feel like shelling out more than $30 for high-end products that will yield similar results, so the cost of approximately $20 something USD seems like a bargain to me (my fiance actually bought mine in a 2-pack at Costco, score!).
I bought this as an urgent need for my trip to NYC during the winter. This is recommended to be used in the night as a night moisturizer but I beg to differ. This was not rich enough to be used as a night cream since my face felt tight after applying. I like my night creams to be a little rich in order to replenish my skin. So instead I used the remainder as a day moisturizer.
I don't recommend this for people with combination skin/dry skin like me since it is simply not enough to moisturize at night.
