PROS: Good amount of moisture for my dry skin. Has some antiaging ingredients.
CONS: Feels too thick and a little sticky on my skin for my day. Only spf 15.

I picked this moisturizer up because the store was out of Olay's Regenerist Regenerating Lotion With Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15.
I like the texture of this lotion, it leaves my slightly dry sensitive skin feeling moisturized but not sticky or shiny. It does take longer to absorb than other facial moisturizers I have tried. It also seems to ball up under foundation so I would not use this daily because of that.
Overall not a bad product but the balling up/ flaking it does when I apply my foundation makes this a "no-winner" for me.

As someone else said, Beautypedia gives this stuff a great review, which is why I bought it. I have to say, it has made such a difference to my skin, it's so much smoother. I have very dry sensitive skin and it keeps it hydrated. Only drawback is the price - around $NZ35. I got it on sale for $23 which wasn't too bad, and it's much much cheaper than my Clinique Super Rescue. HG status and will continue to purchase.

I bought this at Costco when they had a coupon and I would really like to see those 7 effects. Overall, I was looking for one product that one product that does it all. I've seen this product around forever so it should be good? (even the Costco guy that checks receipts said it was good because it's what his wife uses)
But what they say is true. It's a sunscreen and acts like a sunscreen: it leaves an oily layer on top of your skin that lasts all day. At least, for my skin it did. Why am I still using it? Well, it's kinda expensive for a drug store brand and I'm still in college, saving every penny for living purposes. I spent maybe $30 on this, and that's more than some of my textbooks. I don't want this to go to waste and I really want to believe in it!
But! I started mixing this moisturizer with one pump L'oreal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup (SPF 20) and I spread it all over my face and neck. Try mixing this product with a liquid foundation, and for ladies that want more coverage, work from there. So far, my face looks really bright and the tinted moisturizer from these two products makes me feel kinda girly. I'm not a huge fan of makeup but this has a super light coverage and a bit of tint and reverses the shiny effects of Olay. I almost neglected the L'oreal foundation because it made my face look kinda fake, and I'd rather blemishes than a weird skin color/texture not found in nature. And I'm sure my skin will love the layering of sunscreen products.
Let's hope this anti-wrinkle stuff works ;D i'll let you know in 10-15 years (I'm Asian and hoping it does me good)
Although, I started this product with the Garnier Fructis Clinical Overnight Peel and Dark Spot Corrector Vitamin C treatment. I don't know which product to attribute to my skin improvements.

This moisturizer with SPF has been wonderful for my dry winter skin. Adds just enough hydration without feeling greasy and works perfectly under my make-up. The texture is silky, absorbs quickly, and the pump packaging is wonderful. Not only does this contain SPF, but niacinamide, vitamin C, and green tea. Love this moisturizer for my dry winter induced skin and will be repurchasing it again.

Wow! I don't know what happened to me while using this lotion, but I noticed by the end of the day I had little tiny red bumps around my eyes, forehead and tops of cheek bones. I finally found out(after a month) that THIS was causing the irritation! Stopped using it and the NEXT day my skin was back to normal. It also stung a lil bit when I applied it, I know, all the signs where there that this was not compatible with my skin, lol but I tried hard to tell myself it wasn't the problem. Its fragrance free( still has a slight "scent") but it still irritated my slightly sensitive skin, can't imagine what this would do to very sensitive skin. Its a no go for me.

Ran out of Visionaire which I didn't find did anything for me at all and really didn't want to spend the zillion dollars to buy it again so I picked this up at the grocery store ,, been using it for a week and my skin looks a million times better than it did using the whole bottle of expensive crap! It looks even and fresh and bright and tighter.

My first experience with skincare products goes back to when I was about 15 years old and I used simply Olay foaming face wash with the most basic complete 15SPF moisturizer & night of Olay. I had the best skin of my life throughout my teenage years while all the other girls in school were struggling with acne. After high school and throughout college, something about my skin changed, perhaps due to stress, diet, or the fact that I started using some makeup, or maybe change in Olay's original formula, who knows what, but my skincare regime stopped working. I began having acne problems on and off. Tried different products and went to dermatologists, nothing really worked very well. I bought Total Effect 7-in-1 on a whim because it was on sale at the time and I needed a daytime moisturizer with spf. Surprisingly, it worked out very well on my skin and even improved my overall skin tone as well as acne scars. My acne problem has also calmed down a lot and now I only get few pimples during that time of the month. At first I thought it was a bit oily for my combination skin, mainly on the T-zone area, and worried that it might break me out. Thankfully it never did and I continued using it everyday. Almost done with the first bottle and will repurchase. The one I have now is with fragrance but it didn't really bother me too much. I love how it gives off a very healthy glow after you put it on and makes your skin stay moisturized throughout the day. It has a creamy texture that's not too thick and blends well. However, I would probably use it more often during the fall or winter compared to summer as it may take some time for it to completely absorb into the skin. Most of the time I use powder foundation after this and then it's simply perfect. The packaging is okay with me. 1 big pump is just enough. I'm glad that another great Olay product worked for me. Perhaps I outgrew the basic ones. I will continue to try different Olay products and would definitely recommend this one.

I really like this product. It goes on nicely and gives me a glow. I do not like the packaging. There is a little plug that you have to put on the opening so that the lotion does not get all over the cap. Its hard to explain but suffice to say, its annoying. Having said that, I have already and will continue to repurchase.

Product Stung and burned my face. I will not be buying this again.

The one I have is not "fragrance-free"
It is not as moisturizing as my skin needs and for the price, you get such a tiny amount in a poorly designed bottle. It made my skin more dry around the eyes and it even burned where it was irritated. Overall it was very disappointing. During this entire mess; however, I have resorted to just use olive oil and coconut oil on my skin. Works like a charm and I actually can read the "ingredient" label

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:):)

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'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.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Sensitive, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
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!).
