Love this! I used to use a retinoid moisturizer under my make-up. I noticed that my face always felt heavy, sweaty, and/or greasy. I finally switched from the brand of make-up to another and still had the same thing. Finally, I tried using a lighter weight moisturizer under my make-up. That was it! Now I use my retinoid at night like you are supposed to, and this in the morning under my foundation. Sinks right in and absorbs almost immediately. It is light weight and doesn't make my face feel heavy. My aunt has used the Equate version of this Oil of Olay product for 30 years. She is right, this is fantastic, and not expensive. Not greasy, heavy, abosorbs quickly, and leaves my face soft. Traditionally I am Nuetrogena all the way...but why bother spending extra $$ when this is perfect!

I am currently in school full time and I have a family, so I have so save money where I can. I have to pick and choose where I spend money on product. And for the money, this moisturizer is great. But it does the job and it does it well. I use it everyday after getting out of the shower. It doesn't feel super heavy, but it moisturizers really well without leaving any oily residue. I have bought at least 2 bottles of this stuff and will continue to buy.
I only gave 4 lippies because I wish it had a higher SPF.

I like this daytime moisturizer a lot. It isn't a high enough spf for summer days when I will be outdoors for a long time, but for winter days or rainy days when I don't need as high an spf, this is great. I don't find it oily, it doesn't pill up like the neostrata daytime smoothing lotion, and it isn't sticky, It really absorbs nicely and is great under makeup. The price is so cheap too. On days where I am outdoors for a long time, I use Neutrogena water light SPF60, but for every day, this is my HG.

I will be 60 in 3 months. I haven't had any form of breakout in almost 20 years. Within 2 days of using this product I began seeing pimples. Will use on my hands as a light sunscreen.

This is a good cheap moisturizer with SPF. It has the same formula as the original Olay Sensitive and has not caused any skin issues. I prefer a higher SPF though because my skin is so fair.

Overall a good moisturizer, just don't put too much on or else you will be oily! Doesn't make me break out and has some good ingredients for skin such as Vitamin E. I also love that it has SPF. Would recommend if you're looking for a simple moisturizer.

I would never have purchased this product without reading a review of Olay's Complete SPF 15 that recommended the Equate version over the "real deal", due to Equate's inclusion of zinc and physical sunscreens rather than chemical. Sure, whatever - I'm not a chemist or dermatologist, but I'll take MUA's word for it. I stumbled upon this at Wal-Mart recently while looking for my usual Olay Complete lotion, and the price for the Equate version couldn't be beat - $6.50 vs. $11 for Olay at Wal-Mart, and the Olay goes for $17.99 everywhere besides Wal-Mart here in Canada. I figured I'd give it a shot, and I'm glad I did. Right away, I notice a difference between this and the Olay Complete lotion. Olay leaves an oily sheen on my already-oily skin; this doesn't. Olay takes a while to "sink into" my skin and look natural; this sinks in right away and gives a nice matte finish, the likes of which I've never seen from a moisturizer. Like the box promises, Equate's lotion feels like it's barely there, but it moisturizes adequately and leaves no residue or "thick" feeling on my face. The SPF is gravy, and the fact that I can re-apply if needed without turning my face into a grease-pan is brilliant. I would never have found this gem without MUA, and I highly recommend it for those with sensitive, naturally oily, or anything-in-between skin. This one's a keeper.

After trying many, many products, this is finally the daily sunscreen I settled on.
My skin dislikes chemical sunscreens and stings every time I put one on. Oddly enough, however, it also stings with several all-physical sunscreens - like Burn Out and Cliniderm.
This is literally the only sunscreen I have used that does not sting. Apparently octinoxate and zinc is the magic combo for my picky skin. It is moisturizing, but not greasy. It doesn't leave a white cast. It doesn't break me out. Makeup goes on fine over top.
I especially love when this goes on sale at the drugstore, and I stock up. My husband has rosacea, and after Burn Out started to dry his skin a bit, he started using this one too, and it's great for him.
SPF 15 is fine for me most days, since I am not out in the sun too often, and I think will be adequate especially in the winter. In the summer, I switch to Olay Complete SPF 30 for Sensitive Skin.

This made me break out like crazy, even places where I don't normally have problems. I'm not sure what ingredient I'm reacting to. But I'm tossing it out.
Use with caution, if you are prone to this.

I have the most annoying skin. Greasy with large pores (read: Italian!), yet dryer than sheet rock the second I wash it. I am prone to small, rash-like pimples on my forehead and chin - which are always made worse by any moisturizer I use - and in general have an uneven texture as a result. I have tried pretty much every single moisturizer out there in my 32 years...department store brands, organic, home made, and (literally) every single option available in drug stores/Wal-Mart. I've spent as little as $3 and as much as $100. Nothing worked. Either I broke out or my skin remained dry. Finally I decided to try the Equate version of the Olay SPF 15...I figured I had nothing to lose, especially for $5. Boy, was I surprised. THIS IS THE BEST MOISTURIZER I HAVE EVER USED!!! I wear it daily, including in the hot, North East summer - no white cast, no extra greasiness. Sinks into my thick Italian skin with no problem, leaving it supple and healthier looking than it has been since my teens. My breakouts have diminished significantly, and the texture of my skin overall is 100% improved (I read somewhere that Zinc can be a successful topical acne treatment, and this has Zinc...which, incidentally, is a broad-spectrum SPF, so yay to that!). This stuff is a full-night's-rest in a bottle. The scent may be strong for some, but I like it - it reminds me of my grandmother, who used the original Oil of Olay for years and had great skin. Her skin type was the complete opposite of mine, yet the benefits seem to be the same...I think, therefore, that this little gem may be universally awesome (except super sensitive skins, due to the scent). I swear, if you have finicky skin that you can never get balanced for more than a few days at a time, try this stuff. Combined with the Cetaphyl bar and lots of water - nothing else - my skin is completely transformed. I have used it all summer and fall and love it. The original version without SPF rocks my socks, too. : )

I agree with the past reviews. This stuff rocks! I have bought countless bottles of this over the years and will continue to buy it until they stop making it. I saw my derm yesterday and she told me to keep doing whatever I have been doing with my skin, which is to wash my face with Equate Cetaphil and moisturize with this lotion. She told me there is NO NEED for expensive cleansers and lotions. She even said an eye cream is not necessary.
I apply this after I wash my face while the skin is still damp. I slather it on and let it sink in. It is never greasy and it never irritates my sensitive skin.
I wish young women would take her advice and not waste tons of money on expensive products. Salespeople in department stores talk a good talk but most of the time you are throwing money down the drain. Be smart, save money and treat your skin well by using quality products like this lotion.

The best inexpensive moisturizer with SPF 15! Feels so soft and smooth with no oily residue or fragrance. I also purchased the Olay version for sensitive skin, which is almost twice as much and does feel a bit more greasy. I'm so glad to switch back to the Equate version. I never ever thought I would come to prefer a store brand version over it's name brand counterpart either. This moisturize is thicker than Olay, but sinks right into your skin. For less than $5.50 for a 6 oz. bottle, there's nothing on the market that can compete with it. I hope this product never gets a product reformulation or discontinued. I have also tried the scented version of the Equate Complete Beauty Lotion, and I like it too. No stinging sensation either even with the SPF. I love the flip-top cap as well. HG all around!

Too light for my skin. I have combo skin but after I wash I want some real moisture. Does give my skin a silky feel though.

I am SO sad I can't find this anymore. It's not at my local Walmart, and it's not online. I have been using it for more than 5 years, every time I showered. It feels so nice and cool on your skin, doesn't break you out, smells clean, and it's cheap (like $4 cheap). It lasts a really long time too. My last bottle lasted for an entire year (idk how). I went back to Walmart to buy another and went I couldn't find it, I bought the Equate Beauty Lotion, figuring that they must have repackaged it. I was so wrong. It breaks me out really badly everytime I use it and I don't have an acne problem, it smells like baby lotion, which is gross, and it feels disgusting on your skin. I don't even use face moisturizer anymore because I can't find one as good as the Equate Complete Beauty Lotion SPF 15 Sensitive Skin. I've looked everywhere! :(

Over all good.. like if you need a lil sunscreen. Mild and didn't cause breakouts. Not super moisturizing tho... I find I must use an eye cream for moisture which I usually only use @ night. I like but not for everyday. Not HG for me.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Oily, Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
This product is a great everyday moisturizer. It moisturizes the right amount for my combination skin. The scent isn't strong. We all know that we need to put on sunblock everyday but who likes the feel of actual sunblock everyday? I put on some sunblock with higher SPF on especially sunny days. It's cheap, not irritating, and has sunblock. What more could you ask for?

The branding and packaging for this in Canada is different than that found in US Walmarts. In Canada, this is merchandised right beside Olay in the same way that generic painkillers are placed alongside Tylenol or Advil, and is not branded Complete Beauty Lotion with SPF 15 - Sensitive Skin, but rather just simply Equate Moisturizing Lotion - Sensitive Skin SPF 15. It contains 3% zinc and 6% octinaxate, which were the winning ingredients in the discontinued Oil of Olay sensitive skin moisturizer that has been so loved by acne sufferers and sensitive skinned folk for so many years. While Olay listened to their American consumers and brought back that product, Canadian customers were not as lucky - that particular item, now marketed as the "classic gentle formula," has not returned to our shelves.
Well, thank goodness for Equate. Manufactured in good old Ontario, this stuff has been a godsend for me. I'd been suffering from redness and patchy, flaky skin (which I believe now is a bout of facial seborrheic dermatitis) and this saved me (alongside doctor-prescribed Diprosone liquid once a week, a topical corticosteroid). My skin is now baby soft and back to normal. I attribute the disappearance of the redness to this product's zinc content - zinc is a well known anti-inflammatory and I'm a huge, grateful fan.
So, for Canadian girls who still lament the loss of Oil of Olay's discontinued, original sensitive skin moisturizer, do yourself a favor and get thee to a Walmart and plop down $6 for this. You'll be overjoyed.

I used this ages ago. At first I was pretty happy with this. It didn't break me out and helped moisturize my dry skin. I found over time though that this didn't moisturize enough for my drier spots. Over time though I noticed this moisturizer was just okay at it's job. I wanted something that'd help my skin look young and healthy. This just didn't do it for me so I switched.
Overall: Just okay, nothing special.

Made my skin break out and get dry patches. On to something else..

Thank goodness another reviewer tipped me off to the fact that this moisturizer is the same as the old version of the Olay moisturizer... ALMOST the same, that is. Olay brought back the "old" version recently... except for the fact that it now has Aloe in place of all the vitamins it used to have in it. Bah! Which is exactly what's going on with this Equate version of the old Olay moisturizer. Oh, well. You can't have it all, I guess. Took one star off for the lack of vitamins, but other than that I'm happy with this formula.
