Cult classic like Seabreeze, Cetaphil, Noxzema & Ponds Cold Creme! These have been around forever for a reason! Coz they have "worked" HG for generations. I use all of ^^^^ but I tried OoO Beauty Fluid a few yrs ago & got into Clinique skincare but atm I am on a low-buy & Clinique wasn't even an option I could consider....I was deciding this/Nivea/Nivea Soft & I was reading the Nivea labels so cleverly hidden (yes they are there! Peel away on the bottom of the jar. Sneaky!) well both Nivea's contain Lanolin Alcohol & I hate wool sweaters I'm allergic to Lanolin ESP in lip products but u didn't want to use Lanolin so OoO it is! If ur allergic to wool chances are ur allergic to Lanolin. It's a crappy filler ingredient. I love that distinctive OoO scent. I was wanting to buy LUSH's Vanishing Cream moisturizer but it's $43 for 1.5 oz. Not even remotely in my realm of options. So I opted for OoO & it hasn't broken me out, it's def 1 of my fave moisturizers, I also like elf's moisturizer but it's a little heavy on the grape seed oil, & my HG is Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel ESP since it was oil free & still moisturizer. I tried Clean & Clear oil free moisturizer & it didn't absorb so I'm kinda over my brief fling w oil free moisturizers but I was on the fence about it having oil but oil does not beget more oil. I was excited to try this & fell in lurve w it & im alternating between Physicians Formula Argan Oil for my oiliest of oilies skin (I'm...argh...wait for it...MATURE skin haha I hate saying that!) I don't break out too often & I wear elf's anti acne foundation. I also wash my face w LUSH CoalFace soap & im going to buy LUSH tea tree oil when I get funds but OoO had a great price pointe ~$7 or so the store brand was 40 cents cheaper but I wanted the real one for not a whole lot of money difference. This does not make me greasy or oily, it is a fine quality DS gem. I can say this is my HG DS moisturizer but my HG moisturizer of all is Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. I only use a pea sized amount of OoO, I think a lot of people over apply like a dime is way too much putting it on too thickly slathering it increases the chances of breaking out. One should use judicious judgement when dispensing this, I know the bottle squirts out too much so I rub the excess on my décolletage because my neck is crepe starting to age I guess no wrinkles nor fine lines but oil produced by ur own body is nature's finest moisturizer. It sucked as an adolescent coz I was a pizza face & had to take oral antibiotics until I switched to The Pill & now I'm on The Shot which actually is worse for acne & makes u more oily. I know you don't want the entire Geschichte but OoO I also would like to add can be just as expensive as some dept store brands not sure who would spend $30 on an Olay eye cream. I guess if u don't have a dept store, sephora or Ulta to go to or cannot order online. I think other than this beauty fluid the line has a very over inflated ego w their very over inflated prices...I will still buy the beauty fluid as long as it remains under $10 bucks or so coz I do find it loathsome to pay more than ten for a DS item. If it's >$10 it better do my makeup for me so I look like a VS Dream Angel! The beauty fluid is about the cheapest item in their line up (GRRR!), I would love to try other OoO products but I don't want to do an experiment w an expensive mistake. I feel funny taking back used products just because I did not like it. Returning a defective or skin reaction item is one thing it's entirely different ball game. Anyways I will keep purchasing this, sad to see it reformulated & not in that neat retro packaging. It works! This review does not do such a wonderful product any justice. This phenomenal moisturizer must have the pleasure to beheld to be appreciated/ Give it a try! I hope they never quit making this even it is reformulated. 5 lippies all the way for the DS aisle!!

I bought this when I was broke....and sadly wish I just bought the expensive stuff. After washing my face this stuff absorbs quickly but it still feels and looks dry. Blah, not for me.

Nice moisturiser. Quite liquid-y and easily absorbed by skin. I find that it makes a nice base for foundation and because it's so light, it would be ideal for summer it has no SPF so I tend to use it as a night cream instead.

I started using Oil of Olay when I was 15 years old. Then the Olay bottle was glass. It actually was a pretty jar! I found the moisturizer then would allow my skin to be hydrated yet not break out. I continued to use the same Olay pink formula throughout my 20s, 30s, and mid 40s. I am now 52 years old. Have proudly raised 5 children. I am dating again after my divorce. Let me tell you girls, how often I get told that I look 35! Me! A mom of 5 at 52! If it was the Olay? God bless the makers of that sweet pink Olay lotion I say!

Love love love this, I have oily/combination skin and there isnt much i can wear under my foundation that doesn't end up making me look oily so i tend not to bother and just go right in with my foundation. I picked this up purely to use on my neck but decided to try it one night for bed and was surprised at how well it absorbed into my skin and made it feel hydrated but left no trace. The next day I tried it as a base for my foundation and it worked beautifully. I love the smell, the price, the amount you get, the texture, everything.

My go-to moisturizer! I have extremely oily skin, and most moisturizers just make it worse. But this stuff keeps my skin looking soft and moisturized without making me oily. And it's extreme cheap for a good sized bottle.

This is an average moisturizer at a cheap price that does the job when you need it to. It smells whatever; not too great and not too bad, but isn't quite thick enough. I would buy again when I need a quick moisturizer.
