Over the past couple of years, my skin has been changing, and my old trusty Oil Of Olay Complete (the 'yellow bottle' as I call it), just was not working for me anymore.So I have been on a mad search for the last couple of years or so for something that did some 'magic'--making my skin moisturized and 'feel good'. Is that too much to ask..?

This was not it. I had high hopes for this based on the reviews. This just did not work well for me.

First off, there is the smell. Granted I have sensitive skin and a sensitive nose, but I have used many other Olay products with no irritation or bothering my nose. I am not sure what or how to describe the scent, I definitely detect like a baby powder scent about this and..maybe rose or floral..? (I do not like rose or most floral scents, so that could bear why I do not care for this scent). whatever the scent, it does not appeal to me and actually bothers my nose, making my nose itchy. And for me, the scent is pretty strong and 'stays' with me.

Even with the unpleasant scent, I would be okay to use this if it worked better for me than it does. I got a slight firming the very first night I tried this, but nothing the other nights afterward. also I do not find this very moisturizing nor hydrating. My skin is not very dry at all, in fact it is pretty "normal," and I did not detect any moisturizing with this (my cheeks can feel a tad dry, but nothing that screams 'moisturizer, please!!'). I will say that it seems to absorb just fine and does not feel oily or greasy for me. So that is a plus. But all in all, not a "wow"product for me, and the scent is just too off-putting for me.

I have been using the Oil of Olay Active Hydrating (I call it the 'pink bottle') and have been having luck with it, so I am not totally opposed to Olay products. In fact, I have used and tried and enjoyed several Olay products over the years. This one just was a fail for me.

But again, I am not opposed to Olay products, this one just did not work out for me. I am glad for those that this does work well for, because the price can't be beat! This is currently roughly $5.97 at the big box stores (ie: Walmart and Target), so if this works for you, that is awesome!! But, something that does not work for someone is not a 'bargain'..and this just does not work for me.

One final note: this is a light pink shade, and I just do not understand why it has to be pink. I guess they do it to be 'pretty' or cute..but to me, I want plain white lotions and creams, no colors needed. But that is just a personal preference, I guess, and did not merit into my rating. Just still wanted to mention it. :)

I was short on cash and bought this in the dollar store for $6.00. i like it alot. its very emollient but sinks in and is not at all greasy. i love the original olay scent and this is the same.in the morning my skin is soft . I've used many products from expensive to cheap and at this point no longer believe all the hype of most.. most aging I'm convinced is based on genetics, just like most other things...... some are luckier than others. i will buy this again .

I have used this for about a month now,it's a pretty good basic night cream. I bought it just for the moisture aspect and it does that,I didn't notice any firming.You only need a little of this,if I put too much I'll be too greasy. The fragrance is a turn off for me,to be honest it smells like an old lady perfume in my opinion.Some Olay products I really like but this one isn't that great.

Used this for more than 2 weeks. Initially thought it was a good enough cream, but for someone who doesn't have acne at all, this place just made me break out. My face had red splotchy marks which appeared gradually! I have South East Asian skin and my skin is normally clear, but this cream is not giving me any benefits. Definitely staying out of this one from now on.

I have been using the product for over 1 year. I bought this item because I was looking for a night cream to start using, since I had not developed a strict night regiment. I looked around and all night creams have a $20+ price tag. I don't know if I want to invest that amount into something I have never tried before or know how it will work. This has a very good price tag with a good amount of product. I have repurchased this item about 4-5 times. I have combo/oily skin and acne prone. Some dry patches around my nose in the colder weather. This cream applied smoothly does not feel too thick, very slight smell, most Olay product seem to have similar fragrance. I have used it for over 1 year but not really seem any change to skin, tone or texture. Now I have noticed that it seems to clog my pores slightly, if I do not exfoliate routinely. Not a bad product for the price, I am going to look for night cream that is designated for my skin problems.

I'm pretty dedicated to Olay night creams and have been impressed with their various formulas. This one got the job done, but was not the best. First of all, I have combination skin and like my nights creams to be moisturizing, but not heavy. Though Night of Olay wasn't greasy per se, it was heavier than what I was accustomed to. Maybe if your skin is very, very dry, this would be more to your liking. I will say, however, that it did not make me break out despite the heaviness. Second, the aroma of this is a very strong, powdery floral. This isn't a deal-breaker because it's a night cream after all and nobody is going to notice, but it's just not to my liking.

I did like the price (I believe I paid around 11USD) and think that this product would be suitable for many out there... I've just been far more impressed with other similar products Olay has to offer.

I bought this product as an under eye cream. Since I'm still young, I didn't feel like I needed something for "wrinkles", so I bought this. I use it on my face too if its feeling especially dry. It is very thick and moisturizing, and sinks into the skin very nicely. It has brightened my eye area up as well.The only downside is that it literally smells like an old lady. Pretty good product. Probably will repurchase.
