This is by far the best moisturizer I have used. I use it in the morning and at night. I do not have to reapply, it isn't greasy at all, absorbs very well and actually makes my skin so smooth. I wish I would have found this sooner!
My skin type is OSWP.
This moisturizer was ok, was it worth the $? for a drugstore product? I'm not sure. It seeped into my skin, but my skin isn't particularly dry. I feel like it did not do much good, but it didn't do harm either (greasy, break outs, etc). If I have bad luck in the moisturizer department, I may return to it.
I'm in my 20s but I've always been told it's good to start preventing signs of aging early. I bought this moisturizer because Olay is trusted and always gets great reviews. I have a hard time finding a moisturizer that doesn't make me greasy or break me out. This stuff is amazing! It smells nice, feels so luxurious on the skin and it makes my skin unbelievably soft. Like others have said, I tend to use it at night and wake up with fresh, radiant looking skin. I would definitely recommend this moisturizer!
I'm in my early 30's but I've always been told by my mother when I was young to start using face creams in your 20's and 30's since its easier to prevent aging rather than reverse it (of course none of us can escape it)!
I have oily skin, but I decided to use this since Olay has always had good reviews and they never promiss you miracles, but this face cream lotion does make my skin feel very nice. I use it at night, but my skin feels much more hydrated and I havn't noticed any breakouts. I have not been using it for more than a few weeks so far, but will edit if I see anything new. So far so good because it soaks into your skin without feeling greasy, or oily. :) It's great for winter especially and my face does feel much better.
I have been using Ponds Dry Skin cream lately, as my Aveeno Positively Radiant lotion I used in the past ran out and I just needed something cheap to moisturize with. I picked up Ponds and, though it does work on a basic level, it wasn't quite what I was looking for. (Look out for my review on the product in the next couple of days, if you're interested) It was decent but I needed something better.
One night after showering, I noticed my stepmother had left her Olay Regenerating lotion on the counter and I thought "What the heck, why not" and applied it to my damp face.
I can safely say that this is my HG facial lotion, at least thus far.
It absorbs quickly and leaves my skin with a matte finish. My skin feels soft and moisturized all day without getting shiny. It isn't really a 'deep moisture' cream, though. The scent is very light and, though most would liken the smell to something older women would wear, I don't mind.
The packaging is handy and pretty straight-forward; a 'button' that you push down and a perfect amount comes from a little hole in the center. It seems like very little would be wasted with this kind of product.
I'm thinking about picking some up in the next couple days, since I don't want to get in trouble for using my stepmothers, haha!
I really like this cream. I tend to use it at night and wake up with fresh looking, moisturized skin. It is moisturizing, but not super rich. I read an article in a UK magazine and a dermatologist said, in her opinion one of the best anti-agers was a peptide (can't remember the exact name of the peptide). I researched it, at the time and found it was in this cream. That is why I tried it. I am on my third jar now. I don't use this exclusively. I tend to go for higher end creams, but this works just as well when my skin is normal. If it is dry, I use PTR's mega rich.
This is my favorite moisturizer and the only Olay product that I use. I have combo/acne prone skin and can use this under makeup- Leaves a nice matte finish. And no breakouts ever! Sometimes I mix with Colorstay for a lighter finish.
At night, I put this on after applying a retinol product and my skin seems to love it. Love the packaging too, press the top and it dispenses just the right amount. It has a light fragrance, but doesn't bother me. Priced reasonably and works for my "mature" skin. This may feel too "hydrating" for oily skin, so please keep that in mind. Recommended.
I bought this because I'm trying to switch to drugstore products from prestige brands to save some money. This was my new year's resolution, and I have been very pleased with my experiment so far.
This Olay Regenerist Deep Hydration Cream is great - I have sensitive, combo, acne-prone skin with discoloration, and this has really been keeping it soft and smooth without any breakouts. It does have a strong fragrance, but I actually like the scent. I have been using it either as a basic night cream or basic day cream. I use a retinol product 2-3 nights a week, but my skin doesn't tolerate retinol more than that, so I use this on the other nights. I also use this in the morning if I'm not going to be going outside anytime soon.
I wish that they would make a version of this with physical sunblock like zinc oxide. Right now Regenerist makes 3 products with SPF, but they all contain avobenzone which my skin is allergic to. But, if I'm going outside, I'll just throw some Neutrogena Pure & Free Liquid SPF 50 over this, which is very light & they layer nicely. If I don't feel like layering products, I really like the Olay Complete SPF 30 for Sensitive Skin (it has zinc oxide instead of avobenzone).
Instead of this Deep Hydration Cream, I had originally purchased the Micro Sculpting Cream which has won all of the awards, but I hated the fact that it had micro-glitter in it. I did feel the tightening effect on my face, but I thought the glitter was very fake looking. I much prefer the semi-matte, natural finish of this cream. Plus the applicator is great - much better than an open pot.
The only reason that I took off a lippie was because they don't offer an SPF version of this product. Otherwise, it's a great moisturizer for day or night. continued >>
I bought this because my usual Total Effects was out of stock. I have to say I am pleasantly surprised at this product. This has turned out to be an excellent day cream for me. It makes my skin so smooth and the best part is the MATTE finish which I really yearn for in a day cream and seldom get. It just makes my skin look overall fresh, clean, and clear. It's not really a "deep hydration" cream in my opinion - I wouldn't use it as a restorative night cream. Oh and one lippie off because there's no SPF in it. Otherwise, it would be perfect.
UPDATE: Ok I just realized that I had bought the generic (Kmart) version of this, not Olay. But I re-purchased and bought the Olay brand one and I still love it. It's not AS matte as the Kmart version - that one has a very powdery finish - but it is still matte. And Olay version is more moisturizing.
UPDATE again: I'm afraid I can't say this is matte anymore. It goes on matte-ish and then within 1-2 hours my face is shiny. Hate that. I would definitely buy the GENERIC KMART version of this again though.
This moisturizer works great on my combination skin. I really love that it creates a nice smooth matte finish. It is perfect for under foundation. My makeup looks a lot nicer when I use this moisturizer. It seems to help keep me from looking oily. I never have to use a primer when I use this moisturizer.
