Although this product is a bit thicker than I expect for a daily moisturizer (versus a night time moisturizer) it absorbs in quite quickly and only has a shine for a few minutes. I have small wrinkles in all the normal places, especially now after losing a bunch of weight, and it has made them appear shorter and not as deep. I was a bit concerned about breakouts as I have had that problem with some Olay products in the past, this has not proved true with the product at all. So far very happy with the results and I recommend trying it.
I bought both With SPF 15 and without for night time use. I am very please with the results. None of the cream I tried works so well.
I bought the Gentle SPF 15 version at SGD 12.90 from Venus. It is the Vietnam version, which is sold at about the same price I bought from Venus in Singapore. I love how my skin look when I use this sunscreen. My blemish marks seem to lightens and existing acne heal up very fast.
After good results from this sunscreen, I bought the non SPF version for night, the TE cream cleanser, Whiten Radiance Cream cleanser and stock up the one with SPF 15. I am going for Holiday in Osaka this week, I am bring these stuff, hope it will keep me hydrated. I will layer with the Habo Arbutine Serum then followed by this sunscreen:):)
IMO TE is so much more afforable than the red range which is 3 times more (SGD 50+), I will try the tinted version soon:):)
Will update when I use this baby longer, HG protential:):)
17-Feb-2012 (Updated review)
I am into 2nd bottle of this cream. It works well for my Osaka trip, makes my skin radiance. I find that this works much better than ex creams that I have. I know that the SPF15 is not enough for Singapore weather, but at least better than none. The Vit B5 in this cream helps to reduce my outbreak, if I stop using I will have outbreak. So I am so loving this cream. None of Shiseido, Kose, SKII, work as well as this.
I am still unsure of this product.. I love the way it feels in my skin, the bad thing is that Olay decided to updated and now it does not have spf, so I can not use it during the day unless i am wearing makeup or some sort of sunscreen protection:(overall is good but i wish Olay would go back to regular SPF15.
Olays total effects 7 signs anti ageing cream spf 15 is my fave day cream. Ive tried loads of others but always go back to this.It gives skin a nice glow is non comedogenic and has sun protection what more could u ask for :-)
I'm using this because it's the best I have right now for the price. I used it during the winter (9monthes) but will have to switch to an actual 70+ sunscreen. I think it's annoying that it smells so much like sunscreen, but I guess you know it's there. It burns like all hell just like sun screen if it gets in your eyes to. It's a good moisturizer, but I don't think it's the best out there. I feel as though it doesn't absorb into the skin as well as a good moisturizer should. But hell, I always get this stuff when it's on sale for like $29.99 and it comes with the face soap, so it's worth what you pay for.
I personally like Clinique's dramatically different gel moisturizer mixed with some aloe gel a lot more, but you don't get any anti-aging or sun protection, or scar lightening out of that. Personally, I haven't noticed any changes in my scars though. But it's a good base for moisturizer. Stay clear of this if you have oily skin.
My skin has suddenly become ultra-sensitive (very annoying) so I'm currently hunting for a daily moisturiser with an SPF of 15+ that doesn't aggravate it. Am currently trying this and so far I like it. It doesn't seem to be causing a reaction and I like the texture. I'm already a fan of the Olay Regenerist serum. I like the pump action - easy to use. So far so good. Will update in a week or so.
I've noticed a really good improvement in my skin since I started using this (2 weeks). I live through dry, cold winters in Canada and this has done it for me. I found out about it on beautypedia.com. It has an awesome reviews so I went for it.
The review mentioned that it has cell-communicating ingredients which is important, and the price is right. I've spent a whole lot on moisturizers that didn't do a whole lot. Might update in a few weeks.
So far, I'm pretty darn happy with this one. Beautypedia is the bomb!
I have given Olay a chance several times. Each time I was totally disappointed. This moisturizer did absolutely nothing for me. It left me skin feeling dry and itchy. I have also noticed that all of the Olay products (fragranced or non-fragranced) always have this very weird, chemical after-scent to them that lingers, like sulfer, which makes me concerned as to the toxins and chemicals I am putting on my skin. Needless to say, I will not be trying anymore Olay products.
I liked the pumped bottle, and I love the smell of sunscreen. When I put it on, it sank in almost immediately, leaving a perfect base for my foundation. But then... 20 minutes later my skin looked like an Exxon Station exploded all over it. So I blotted. 15 minutes later same thing. I blotted, applied oil absorbing powder and it still happened again. I also got an itchy face. I tried it again the next day just to make sure I was giving it a fair chance, but the same thing happened and I got little red patches on my cheeks. Blotting every 15 minutes is no way to live. So I thought that now at least I have an expensive anti-aging hand lotion, but I got bumps on my hands when I used this!! Definitely going back to the store. I'm gonna try the Olay complete next
I always use a moisturizer with SPF, so decided to give this a try along with Total Effects eye cream and night cream. This cream goes on very nicely and absorbs quickly. However, I found that I got very oily on my forehead and nose by the afternoon (more than I usually do with other moisturizers with even higher SPF). Also, I noticed that by the afternoon, I started itching around my jaw area. I never broke out, but the itching was annoying and enough to make me quit using it. (I don't know what is in it that my skin doesn't like... I've never had a reaction to other products before.) The pump is nice. I'd probably finish the bottle if I didn't have the itching, but I wouldn't buy again b/c of the oiliness. I'm now using Olay Complete Sensitive with SPF 15, which I am much happier with (and its much cheaper!).
