Ok guys, this is my story. I was using Cerave for a long time, then picked up Olay Regenerist Night Cream, Olay Total Effects unscented day cream and a CVS serum comparable to Regenerist serum. I had been having break outs for a bit but they seemed to be worsening. That's when I found out I have a niacinamide reaction and had to stop using all of that. Thankfully, due to this site, I found Olay Total Effects Blemish Control wash and that's been great. But I was still looking for good creams. I called Olay and they sent me coupons to replace what gave me a reaction and due to reviews I picked up this and Olay Age Defying Classic Protective Renewal Lotion.
First of all, my box looks a little different and it says "classic" on it. At first I thought it's the same thing, maybe the other one was just older, but when I checked on here, I realized the ingredients *are* different. At first I thought it was a typo, but both creams have the same issue. Maybe Olay added "Classic" so people would know it's the old product, yet they added Acrylamide/Sodium Acryloyldimethyltaurate Copolymer instead of Polyacrylamide. That worries me because I specifically looked for the products I found with good reviews and extra chemicals is an issue since I'm clearly sensitive to products. Olay has gone from classic trusted to chemically laden and I don't like it.
This cream feels good, doesn't stink like hell and goes on well. However, I did notice a few more whiteheads than normal after the second day so I'm trying to find out which product (if any) did that. I am singling them out using just one at a time to find out. A few whiteheads is better than what I had before, but everyone deserves reaction free products and clear skin and I won't use a product if I know it's doing that. I will update with the news. But feeling a little skeptical :\
UPDATE: Cutting out SA. This was a nice light cream that I used for a while without major noticeable issues. But I'm just done going back and forth with that ingredient, so that's it for me.

This product has such a nice smell to it. It makes me happy every time I use it to moisturize my face. With that being said, it keeps my face nicely moisturized at night. I can tell when I wake up in the morning my face is fuller and less dull. It's more radiant as well. The only downfall? It comes in a tub formula and you know how things in a tub are. They're perfect for bacteria. Definitely a no go. The product is pretty good as a night cream though for a good price.

I love the accompanying Active Hydrating cream for the daytime, but unfortunately, the Intensive Nourishing Night cream just doesn't do it for me. This moisturizer is very intense and I've found that it leads to extra oil in my already-large pores. It's alright if I only apply it to the driest areas of my face, but applying it all over clogs my pores and gives me pimples. I really wanted to like it, but it's just not great.

I love love love this cream. For a good year I was using this day and night. It calmed my acne prone skin, made it soft and helped clear it and keep my skin balanced. It smells great, isn't greasy and lasts a while with 60mls. I cannot live without it summer and especially winter. Have bought three jars already and will keep purchasing!

I think this product is definitely my holy grail product for these freaking dry winter nights. it moisturizes my face without it being extremely greasy. i love it so much! and it's very affordable, too. i definitely recommend this to someone who's on a budget or anyone who don't want to splurge a lot on a night cream from sephora or something. ;)

-it's very light and a little goes a long way, I just need a few dabs to cover my entire face.
-the smell is nice and creamy and it doesn't sting my eyes which sometimes happens with AHA night products.
-even though I don't always use SPF the next day after using, my skin doesn't become blochy and red, to me this means it's pretty sensitive
-skins looks more even and calmer with consistant use
-does not cause breakouts

I just finished my first tub, which took four months of nightly use. I repurchased today, which prompted me to write my first review in quite a while.
My skin is easily irritated and acne prone. It's mostly combo to oily, but easily gets dry and flaky without regular exfoliation. Manual exfoliants weren't cutting it. I decided to stop them, and try this at night for BHA, and Alpha Hydroxy cream during the day for AHA.
Never in my adult life has my skin been more clear. No patches of dryness at all, and a definite curb in breakouts.
The texture is a light to medium cream that sinks in fairly quickly. Best suited for skin types that do not need a lot of moisture.
Light, pleasant fragrance that fades within 5 min.

I needed a night cream because my face was getting so dry in the winter months and I found this one at my local grocery store. I used it for a few days and noticed that I was breaking out so I stopped using it. Eventually I figured out that it wasn't the cream that was breaking me out, it was something else. So I started using it again a few weeks ago and I'm really glad I didn't trash it! It goes on really smooth, doesn't make my face too oily and my face looks great in the morning. I don't mind the jar that it in either. I just dip my finger in and put a little on my face. The only thing I don't like is that it's a little sticky when I put it on my face for about 15 mintes or so. After that it sinks in all the way and I have no problems.

I bought this moisturizer because I wanted a heavier moisturizer for night that treated wrinkles without clogging my pores. And for the mos part it, this delivered. This does a fine job of moisturizing, but I did feel that sometimes it wasn't moisturizing enough for my dry areas and a little too oily for my oily areas. I know that sounds crazy, but I'd wake up with a pretty oily forehead and tight cheeks.
I've never been fond of the Olay scent, but it's not terrible. I can't quesite speak to it's anti-wrikles capabilities because I'm using this more as a preventive measure. This wasn't bad, but it didn't wow me either. Overall, just an OK moisturizer.

I guess this is one of those "love it or hate it" sort of night creams and I am head over heels in love with this stuff! I bought it because I needed a night cream since I tend to get patches of dry skin on my chin and I wanted to start preventing wrinkles that are slowly starting to appear. The price is what eventually sold me (I think it was around $11 at the local drugstore) and within days not only was my skin not flaky, my adult acne started clearing up as well! It's been 2 weeks and my skin is smooth without a blemish in sight. Whether or not it fights wrinkles has yet to be seen (I'm only 30) but overall I see an improvement in my skin and for the price, you just can't beat it.
