Did a good job, had a sheen in mixture for immediate results. Didnít use long enough for lasting effects. Had slight tackiness.
I bought this because the October 2010 Good Housekeeping magazine rated it as the second-best Facial Moisturizer with SPF 15+. (The top-rated moisturizer was $150, Chanel Ultra Correction Lift Day Cream). I had a coupon, Target finally had a sale that got the price tag under $20, so I tried it. I like it well enough to keep buying it, at least for now.
A full pump would be enough to cover two faces so there is the potential to waste a little foam every morning, which is unfortunate. Like other reviewers, I don't really know what the point of the foam is but oh, well. The scent is pretty innocuous and it dries nicely enough: no tackiness.
I'm wary of anything that promises "luminosity" and there is a bit of a luminous effect but it's actually pretty subtle. My makeup goes on well on top of this, it doesn't exacerbate my redness issues and after a week of use, my skin might be improving a bit in appearance. I'll never shell out for Chanel so this seems like decent bang for my on-sale-with-a-coupon buck.
I really enjoyed this new "foam" moisturizer. Dries super fast, no sticky feeling and really feels like it's working. BUT I won't be repurchasing bc bang for the buck, I went thru this product too fast. It's hard to control amount of foam that comes out. Therefore, alot of wasted product. It's around $25 and I used up one bottle in a month (used 2x a day). It usually takes me at least12 weeks to finish other high end moisturizers (ie hope in a jar and clinique super defense)
Love the product but hate the price.
--- Recommend for dry/uneven and non-acne prone skin----
-Evened out skin tone
-made skin Super Soft
-made me shiny and oily(It's not oil-free)--I have sensitive/combo skin
Made me break out like crazy and goes on sticky. Don't bother.
This just didn't work for me. It made my makeup slide right off, made my break out and go really shiny. Would not recommend. Bit expensive for Olay but I did like it came with a pump.
this helps my skin when it gets really dry from trying too many products. i always go back to it. i love the whole foam idea. it dries much faster than cremes.
I found this for $3 on sale so I thought I give it a try. The foam gushes out more than I expected. It absorbs pretty quickly into my skin. I was hoping it would work miracles on my skin, but it made me break out!!! I would never use this again even if it was free.
I won this in a raffle, so not sure about the value for money, but it doesn't matter because after using it for a few weeks on my chest and neck, I know I won't be buying another bottle (or pump or can or whatever this should be called). The foaming feature is, as far as I can tell, pointless, unless the point was to make one guess how much product will squirt out and force the user to wipe up the bit that comes out after the first burst is removed. Once applied, this feels sticky to me, and several nights I've found myself wanting to scratch at my neck to get it off. I'm not even sure it's doing anything, as I didn't have any brown spots to begin with.
After my youngest daughter was born, I took a mini pill oral contraceptive that totally fracked my skin up. It was HORRIBLE. I had dark spots on my forehead, my cheeks, and my nose. A friend's 3 yr old very innocently told me I needed to "wash my face" because I had dirt "all over it.". I had resigned myself to the fact that a chemical peel was in my future.
I had tried other creams, but nothing worked. Then I bought this at Big Lots because it was inexpensive and I didn't have much to lose. It said it could be used 2x day, but I only have been using it at night.
Within a week, i noticed a bit of a change. The spots seemed to look lighter. The packaging said a difference would be visible in six weeks or something like that...but has only been getting gradually better since week one.
The blotches are still there but are much lighter, and i would call this moisturizer a success. I am very, very happy. :)
