Not a bad lotion for moisture if you don't need a lot, but it did nothing to improve or even change my skin. Seriously overpriced for just a nice lotion. I really love the packaging though. Something about the press-down top...it's fun to use, though I suspect you end up with product at the bottom that you can't get towards the end. I'm not there yet. Been using for four weeks with no real change in my skin. It's no different from far cheaper creams I've been using. Smells nice, though, and not strongly. It's a complete 'eh'.
I love this stuff...almost all the way thru my first bottle, and will purchase again. Nothing I've tried has come close to this one except Hope In A Jar, which made my skin look pretty but smelled sour to me. This is the first Olay moisturizer I've tried, and has reduced my fine lines, hydrated my thyroid related dry skin well, and hasn't made me break out. Absorbs fairly quickly, and doesn't leave an oil well on my face like Neutrogena has. Possible HG here!
I'm surprised to see so many negative comments on this product. I'm already on my second bottle. The condition of my skin has vastly improved -- my skin used to be dry within the hour of moisturizing it. No longer....my skin stays fresh all day long. I use it at night in combination with the serum and my skin is glowing in the morning. I even like the scent!
UPDATE: i'm on my THIRD bottle! i love this stuff. i tried the regenerist micro-sculpting cream and it didn't keep my skin moisturized for the day.
I have fallen in love with this lotion. Though a little on the pricey side, the packaging is outstanding and the results are even better. I have trouble finding a lotion that won't irritate my sensitive skin yet will moisterize but not cause my semi-oily skin to break out. This lotion is everything that I have been looking for. It almost has a gel-like quality to it that absorbs fast into the skin while leaving skin silky, not greasy or shiny. I've also found that it seems to act like a make-up primer as well, seeing as my make-up application looks better than ever! Absolutely great product.
Edit: Though I still love this lotion I took away a lippie due to that fact that everyday use made my skin vveerryyyy sensitive and slightly red.
I found this to be the best cream in the Regenerist line for Very Dry skin...and it still was not very hydrating. The packaging is nice, though, and it does hydrate well enough for those with slightly dry to dry skin.
Ugh! Granted I have sensitive, rosacea, acne prone skin & psoriasis, but this stuff made my skin ITCH! I found myself scratching away at my poor skin. It also didn't hydrate very well. This will not replace my Eucerin Q10 sensitive skin creme.Two lippies because the pump dispenser is a neat design and hygenic. continued >>
There was all that rage in Europe, where i live, about the regenerist line, so i decided to give it a try. I 've been using it for nearly one month now and i spent 22 euros (nearly $30) to buy it. The scent is SO strong, it keeps haunting me almost all day, and it smells SO CHEAP! It is applied easily, it is absorbed easily, but after about 2 hours my skin, although it is soft to the touch, it feels quite taut. It leaves my skin matte and it makes my skin look matte, not at all fresh or luminous (probably i am spoiled by the chanel or lancaster products). Definitely, even the most expensive cream can not vanish wrinkles, or anything else that comes along with the passage of time, but this cream should only be advertised as a skin lubricant, everything else it claims to do is non-existant. The bottom line is, i could buy any regular hand cream to lubricate my face and i could only spend a mere 3 or 4 euros for that. I only give it 5 stars for it's very expensive price, compared to its poor and very, very cheap quality.
I almost didn't give this a chance, due to the mixed reviews, as I have combination, somewhat acne-prone skin. But I took a chance, based on some of the claimed benefits and so far, so good! I've only been using it a couple weeks and it's caused me no breakouts (though it's too soon to claim that it's preventing them) and my existing red marks have faded faster than usual. I don't really have any lines or wrinkles to speak of, so can't really comment on that. I only use it at night, since it has no spf and I wake up to softer, smoother feeling skin. It absorbs immediately and smells nice. It reminds me a lot of Lancome's Vinefit, though I have no idea how the ingredients compare. Anyway, good stuff at a reasonable price. I'll purchase again.
Desperate to find an alternative to my VERY expensive Kate Sommerville Deep Tissue Repair (150.00US for 1oz!), I decided to give this one a go and so far I am pleasantly surprised..it's pretty good stuff! You'll see in some of my other reviews that I have not has much luck at all with Olay moisturizers but kept the faith and plunked down the $$ hoping that this one might be "the one" that doesn't irritate or break me out. Well, I have now been using it for a bit and so far so good. My skin feels moisturized, soft and has a slight glow from within. It also works very well under makeup. Some people have issue with the scent, but I hardly notice it at all. It's actually quite nice imo. Oh and the packaging....brilliant. It's a pump type container just like the Deep Tissue Repair which keeps all the ingredients stable and fresh. Your fingers never have to dip into the jar, I love it. HG status? Not sure just yet, but will up this baby to 5 lippies if it continues to perform. My wallet is definately smiling right now :-)
UPDATE- Ok, me no likey anymore..My skin started to breakout with this just like every other olay product I have ever tried. Why do I even bother? Went to Neiman Marcus and forked over the cash for my beloved Kate Somerville, which is ungodly expensive but it works for me so I guess in the long run its worth it. Sorry ladies! Olay may be great for some, but it's a curse for others and I unfortunately am the latter..
i have been searching for a moisturizer that is not TOO expensive, doesn't make me break out and keeps my acneprone combo skin soft, not flaky. and i found it! ive been using it for a couple weeks now and it has made my skin so soft! I usually wear it under my makeup because my skin is dry and my make up has been going on smoother. It hydrates my skin without making it oily which i love! i absolutely love this lotion!
