I love how moisturizing this is! Usually I can't try new facial products because they dry out or break out my skin, but this moisturizer helps keep my skin soft and less broken out because of the SPF and moisture. I also notice that I have less dark spots after a breakout. This is also great because it is the only sunscreen that does not make my face greasy or broken out! I woud definately reccomend this!
I layer this over my salicylic acid lotion ( target brand)!
This is excellent as a lightweight, hydrating moisturizer but average as a SS. The pros are it absorbs immediately, lovely finish, no break outs or clogs, no cast. The con for me is my skin does tan when I wear this even for daily use, when my sun exposure is (even cumulatively)low.
This is the one sunscreen/moisturizer that does not increase my acne.......and, yes, I have tried many sunscreens. I would prefer it did not contain a chemical sunscreen (also has zinc oxide) but it has not caused any problems so far. It is not very moisturizing but I want it for the sunscreen so I do not care. I detect no scent. A pump or pointed-tip top would be nice because it is a little messy to dispense but I really am happy to have found a sunscreen my skin can tolerate.
Love this lotion so far. I use this every morning, after I wash my face. It works well under my make-up. I have the worst combination of acne-prone, sensitive, and oily skin. I have not broken out or had any kind of reaction from using this lotion. I gave this product a 4 out of 5, just because it doesn't really help with my oiliness. It's an oil-free product, but it doesn't have a matte effect. It keeps my face at bay for a good 3 hours before I start to see a shine. I used to use the Eucerin face lotion with spf 30 for sensitive skin, and I liked it because it did not break me out, but it made my skin way too oily too fast, and left a white sheen on my face because of the high spf. This Olay lotion only has spf 15, but I'm okay with that because I found that moisturizers with high spf tend to irritate my skin.
I have oily skin yet I still like a light moisturizer to add before putting on my make up in the morning. For some reason I love the simplistic look of this bottle. I tend to like it even if it doesn't have a pump. You just squeeze out the amount you need. I like the spf in it even though its very low. Never feels greasy on my face and absorbs well. It also feels soothing in a way. Doesn't seem to break me out either. This has lasted me awhile also.
I used to use this product rather extensively and it worked very well! It wasn't too greasy or thick, it moisturized well, and it just straight up did its job. As of the past year (not sure if it was reformulated or what), I've noticed that it feels very "mask" like and it makes my combo skin VERY oily! I am thinking that a new moisturizer is in order, but for now, my skin is getting by without it, and the moisturizer does work well as a base for my primer and foundation, hence why I am leaving it 3 lippies.
This moisturizer works awesome. It doesn't break out my acne prone skin, distributes the perfect amount of moisture, and makes my skin look more radiant right after I put it on. I use this at the beginning of my day once using a quarter sized amount after washing my face and putting my clinique bp on. My skin gets relatively oily fast so i use a finishing powder to minimize that but other then that the moisturizer works perfectly for my oily and sensitive skin. I would recomend for anyone needing a basic moisturizer.
I have never liked a product so much that I decided to write a review about it, until now. I purchased this at Costco the other day because I saw it in a two-pack and thought I might try it out. I had high hopes because I had seen good reviews about this moisturizer, but when I first applied it I was disappointed because it dried so fast and didn't look shiny at all. I know that probably sounds weird, but I have extremely dry skin so usually if a lotion is greasy, I feel that it's giving me the moisture that I need. Turns out, this lotion is not only light and non-greasy, but it moisturizes better than the product I was using before. Now, my dry skin feels nice soft, and hydrated...but I don't look shiny at all, even by the end of the day. It wears well under my foundation also, and doesn't give off those white flakes like most other non-greasy moisturizers that I've tried. I also feel like it helps with redness on my face. I have dry, acne prone skin and within two days of using this stuff, my face was clear and almost completely free of redness. I'm in love. The only thing that I don't like about this product is the packaging, because it doesn't have a pump :(
UPDATE: 9/10/12 - I will not buy this again and I threw it out a few months ago. I couldn't figure out why I kept getting these bumps on my face and found out by other reviews that this producy causes milia(sp?) milia is small hard balls of oil that form in the pore. Within a week of stopping the use of this product the milia went away and my face stopped breaking out.
In the past I've used the olay pink lotion but it was too heavy for my skin and I broke out. It was probably the fragrance or the coloring that made me break out more than the lotion itself. I've been using aveeno regular lotion but it was so heavy I looked greesy so I went in search a lotion specifically for my face.
I got the olay complete sensative spf 15 because i figured it would bee lighter than the pink i've tried in the past and it came with a free full size foaming sensative face wash (which I've also reviewed now).
I am starting to like it. It doesn't have a smell and it is not greesy what so ever. I have facial dandruff and using this is helping calm my skin.
Best daytime moisturizer that I've tried. I think that it's great for sensitive, oily skin as it is very lightweight but hydrating. Of course, this has never broken me out, and I've been using this for almost 6 months. The only con would be the rather low spf, but as long as you don't plan on spending a prolonged period of time in the sun it should be fine.
