So far, I love this product! I was looking for a moisturizer/lotion that hydrated my skin without leaving it oily. This does exactly that. Lightweight, hydrating, works great under my makeup, and smells just like baby lotion! I do have acne prone skin though, and recently I have been getting more acne. I don't know if it's the lotion or not so just a little warning to acne prone skin girls like me!

I've tried just about every hydrating/moisturizing cream/lotion/potion out there, high-end, drugstore and pretty much anything and everything in-between. I had been using the yellow Oil of Olay (Olay Complete All Day, I think it was called..?) bottle for years and that stopped working, so I went on a wild goose chase looking for something that hydrated my skin without making me look and feel like an oil slick. So, I decided to go back to Olay, but tried this 'pink bottle' as I now call it.

Very pleased. Applies nicely and evenly, absorbs quickly, leaves no funny feeling or any film, just a nice product. Also little to no scent that my sensitive nose can detect, and my sensitive skin does not react adversely to this.

Thanks, Oil Of Olay!! I am back to using your product!!

I don't know what it is about this stuff that makes it work so well but it is the only moisturizer that my skin really responds to. I've tried nearly everything to hydrate my skin- Avene, Clinique, Burt's Bees, Boots, vitamin e oil, CeraVe, Cetaphil, natural brands, high end brands, etc etc. I settled on CeraVe for awhile but it doesn't hydrate well enough and sometimes causes little bumps that I assume are clogged pores. So I tried Olay on a whim and wow was I surprised! There really aren't any special ingredients but still after one week of use my skin was well hydrated and irritation from a glycolic peel was completely gone. When I use this at night I know I'm gonna wake up with hydrated, glowing, and clear skin. It absorbs really fast so it's great under makeup. I don't know what it is about this stuff but I can't complain about the results!

I HATE this stuff. I hate it so much. I have really oily skin and tried it in the summer because there were so many positive reviews from people with oily skin. It was way too heavy, too greasy, and never absorbed. It made my face sticky almost. Anyway, now it is winter, and my skin is a lot drier. Most moisturizers I've tried that were too heavy for me in the summer now work great for my skin, so I decided to give this one last try. NOPE AGAIN. This literally feels like it is suffocating my skin. It sits on top of my skin, provides no moisture, and leaves a disgusting tacky feeling on my skin until I wash my face again. I would not recommend this product to anyone of ANY skin type. Don't waste your money.

My mother has been using this for ages and her skin looks amazing. Since my skin is similar to hers I decided to try it. Seems to seal in moisture pretty well, cause really that's all it does, and keeps my skin feeling soft. If I use too much of it though it clogs my pores. The big turn off though is that in the morning I wake up with my lips burning. I have oily skin so moisturizers just slide down my face during the day so eventually anything I put on my face ends up on my lips. Not fun (the burning or the lotion on my mouth). The other complaint is that the scent has changed! I vividly remember getting a bottle of this in high school in the early 90's and it had a distinct slightly powdery rose smell. This bottle I bought this past summer, the lotion smells like a slightly faint floral kids multi vitamin. Odd description but that's all I can detect. Compared to the sensitive skin fragrance free version the original lacks niacinamide, aloe and chamomile. Unfortunately I can't find the sensitive skin lotion anywhere anymore in brick and morter stores. Will be using this up either on my face occasionally or just as a body lotion or hand cream and then will not purchase again.

A nice, light moisturizer. keeps your skin moist all day but other than that its not really anything special... beware of use on face if your skin is sensitive, it made my face as red as a tomato. no burning or itchiness, just red.

I really, really wanted to love this, but it has almost no redeeming qualities.
As a moisturizer, it just didn't work. After a few days of using this I began to develop dry patches that just got worse the more I used this. It left my skin feeling unpleasantly tight, but still greasy on the surface.
I was pretty hesitant to try this at first because, though my skin had fairly clear for several months now, I have acne prone skin. Needless to say this broke me out quite badly.
I would maybe recommend this as a hand lotion, but the scent (a floral that, quite honestly, smells like diaper rash cream) is so strong that I wouldn't use it even for that.
Definitely a disappointing product.

I think I might be repurchasing this product for as long as they will make it. A few years a go, I got tired of all the moisturizers that claim to do different things for your skin but never works to my satisfaction, so I decided to just go with something simple. This lotion has become a must-have product for me. It's a simple face lotion that moisturizes without causing me any trouble. I use it throughout the year and find it perfect for every season. It does have a scent that some might find unpleasant, but I've gotten so used to it now that the scent is actually lovely to me. I may still venture out into other products that catch my attention, but I know that I'll always have this reliable little guy to fall back on.

I love this lotion! It's hydrating, yet light, and has never broken me out. (I get some hormonal acne around my mouth and chin and this hasn't aggravated it at all.)
I hate going to sleep at night feeling like my moisturizer is just sitting on top of my skin, and I never have that problem with this stuff. The price is great, as well.
The only thing I HATE about this product is the smell. It smells very powdery, and reminds me of the classic 'grandma scent'.

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!!
