Love, love, love this moisturizer! First tried it in high school during an extreme bout of dry skin and I am still a loyal user years later. The lotion feels lightweight on my face and works well with or without makeup over it. I have an extreme sensitivity to perfumes so I love that it is fragrance free! And the SPF works very well to protect my face during prolonged sun exposure so I can also use it as a non-greasy sunscreen. The bottle doesn't look big, but a little bit of this stuff goes a long way so I only need to buy it 2-3 times a year!
I am continuously pleased with this moisturizer and have never even been tempted to try anything else. If they ever decide to stop making it, I will stock up and buy every bottle I can get my hands on!
I've tried dozens of moisturizers and always come back to this one. Very simple, light, fragrance free, absorbs easily into my skin, does not break me out (huge plus)...extremely easy to wear alone or under foundation, not greasy. I will repurchase this again and again....the only one that works for me, consistently...
So far I am very pleased with this product. I've been on a never ending quest to find a non-irritating, non-stinky, non-whitening moisturizer with sun protection that my skin can tolerate on a daily basis and is comfortable enough for everyday wear (not greasy or flaky or skin-smothering). Thus far this one seems to fit the bill.
Most sunscreens irritate my skin and those that don't tend to disagree with it in other ways (pore congestion after continued use, flaking, etc) and most drugstore moisturizers don't agree with my skin either, so finding a combination of the two that works for me is tough.
This product is light enough to be comfortable and moisturizing enough to stand alone over my BP treatment. The texture is wonderful and absorbs easily, making it no problem to use the proper amount necessary for full sun protection. I have yet to wear it for a period of significant sun exposure so I can't comment on how well it really protects in practice, but I have been out and about with it a little and so far so good.
I have worn it for a couple long days and can say that it is comfortable for extended wear but a late afternoon/early evening blot is recommended because it can get a little shiny toward the end of the day. Nothing I wouldn't expect from most products at the end of a long day though.
I have not tried it under makeup yet, but I expect good results, especially under powder and such.
There is definitely some fragrance but it doesn't seem to be irritating and is not unpleasant. It actually smells pretty good (sweet and almost a little like almond, maybe) but I could do without the fragrance entirely, personally. But most importantly, it does not smell like sunscreen at all. I cannot stand to smell like sunscreen everyday. Just can't stand it. So this is important to me.
It seems to remove easily with my mild cleanser, without requiring any extra steps like many sunscreen products. It also does not seem to collect in my pores over time and has not broken me out or clogged me up at all thus far.
At this point I give it two thumbs way up. We'll see how it stands up to the ridiculous heat of summer around here.
As a reference point, I have relatively light, very sensitive skin, very prone to breakouts, congestion, dehydration, and flushing. I use a 2.5% BP treatment twice daily and an AHA treatment a few times a week. My skin is "combo" I guess... not particularly oily but can get greasy feeling with many products and an oily t-zone later in the day, depending on the weather... not particularly dry but easily dehydrated by products and weather and can get flaky in certain areas.
I bought this product because Olay moisturizers usually work well for me and I thought I had sensitive skin because some products that don't irritate other people irritate my skin. I am not sure if this is the old or new version but it has aloe and vitamin E. I would have preferred a cream in a jar instead of a lotion in a bottle since this one is too runny and when too much comes out, I can't put it back into the bottle. Aside from that, this is definitely not moisturizing enough. My nose and cheeks tend to be drier than my forehead so I have to reapply a few times during the day which is not what I prefer. I have normal to dry skin with mild acne (whiteheads) on my forehead so I wanted something that would not clog my pores. I have not gotten any new breakouts since I started using this but I need more moisture from a moisturizer.
Love Love Love this my all time fav was the combination/oily but they changed it I'm so glad they came back with the the old fav, in this.
Over the last couple years, I have tried different moisturizers. My skin is reacting to normal "close to 50" hormonal changes so it goes from t-zone oily with dry patches, to dry, to normal.
I have tried most of the OTC moisturizers that claim to be anti-aging and hadn't found one that felt right. Most left me feeling like I had a ton of grease on my face and made my makeup look even worse.
When I was younger, before I felt I had to try every "anti-aging miracle" product out there, I used the original Oil of Olay pink lotion. And I liked it!
So yesterday morning I decided to try something radical: Go back to basics. I went to Walgreens and looked for my old standby. I found it. But then I thought about the fact that it doesn't have any SPF. Now that, I wouldn't compromise on. I looked to the left and found Olay Complete for SS with SPF 15....Perfect! I bought a bottle and went home and tried it. I LOVED IT....right from the start! It didn't feel heavy or greasy. Later in the day and all day today....I'm still loving it. Just a good ol' basic moisturizer....yeah!
Oh, and just for good measure....I went back this morning and bought a bottle of the original for night use :) I will still use my "lift and firm" serum and my "peels", but for me, basic may be best.
Love this stuff! I love that it has some SPF in it. And it really moisturizes my skin and gets rid of any flaky areas. It does NOT break me out which I love. I use this everyday in the morning and in the evening after washing my face. It also really like that there is so much product in one bottle that it lasts forever. It's a great everyday moisturizer.
I was afraid to try this product after the CVS generic version made me a greasy, broken out mess. But I'm glad I decided to try the brand-name product--it's so much better! It's light and creamy and sinks right into my skin, not greasy at all. I have acne prone, sensitive skin, and this doesn't make me break out. I love that it has sunscreen. And the bottle is great, too; it's easy to get the perfect amount every time, so no product is wasted. This is the only drugstore moisturizer I've found that actually works with my skin. My HG at the moment. I will definitely repurchase when I run out!
I have sensitive skin that is acne prone and I have used so many moisturizers over the years and wasted lots of money. Most lotions are too oily or no moisturizing enough, but this products works so well for me. I have been using it for several months and I haven't broke out from it. I love this stuff, I just wish I had found it sooner!
I have generally purchased and enjoyed many moisturizers with SPF from the various lines offered by Olay. What intrigued me to try this one was the great reviews of MUA and the price point. This particular moisturizers costs way less then offer products offered by Olay with more quantity provided, I paid around $11 for it. I have been using this daily for the last 2 months and overall really like it. Provides just enough moisture to my face and neck and doesn't interfere with my make-up application or performance.
