OMG! I totally found my HOLY GRAIL ITEM! I will buy this until the end of me! First of all, I find the packaging to be INGENIOUS! I mean, who would've thought of a squeeze-tube-type of moisturizer? It kinda reminds me of baby oil because of the smell and the way it's packaged. That brings me to the next point; the smell. It smells like a baby! I absolutely love it! It was reaaaally cheap at Ulta, not to mention that I got it on sale for $5.99. It has a medium consistency and it goes on smoothly on my skin. My skin is a LOT more softer and overall smoother.
It also does wonders for your undereyes! I recently bought the Merlot Grape Seed Eye cream (which I've reviewed recently) and it hasn't done squat for me. When I use this in the mornings, it really makes a difference!
The one and only con would be that it has no SPF. But, I just layer another moisturizer with SPF over it during the mornings, so I didn't bother to take a lippie away.

Overall, I will DEFINITELY FOR SURE buy this product again and again and again and again and again!

My grandmother used this as far back as I can remember . This brings back memories. Now i dont know if I could credit this face lotion or just good genes, but my grandmother at the ripe age of 88 has maybe 5 wrinkles on her face!! Her skin is admirably gorgeous for her age. I plan on using this for years to come and its definitely a beauty staple :)

Love love love this stuff. Its been around for ages and there is a reason why. It works! After getting the dauly spf moisturizer from olay and falling in love with it, I decided to go and see what other non anti-aging moisturizers olay has to offer. All I can say is, goodbye Clinique. If you are extremely sensitive to scents, I suggest the sensitive skin version (which has been renamed, not discontinued). At first, I got a slight headache from the scent but now I barely notice the scent and when I do, I actually like it! Highly recommened.

Been using this night time moisturizer for years and always wake up with soft, supple skin...doesn't break me out, has such a lovely scent, is nice and thick, creamy and sinks right into skin. I wouldn't be without this lovely gem!

I love the soft baby powder and pink roses scent... It has become one of my signature scents... My 5 year old niece kissed my cheek today and she said "Auntie, your cheek smells so good"... I did say the same exact thing to my mom decades ago. It is very nostalgic... In the early 80's women in my family used this when it was still called "Oil of Ulay" in glass bottle with black cap. Back then the formula was runnier, more like a serum, now it's slightly thicker, just like a typical lotion but same moisturizing properties. I stock on the biggest size available and keep these everywhere in the house. It makes a great hand cream as well

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this moisturizer yet. I have bought so many and so many broke me out ... not this one! Very light, is quickly absorbed by skin.

I ALWAYS GET OLAY CREAM FOR MY FACE. it is a have to! Normal i get the original one though because i prefer not to have a scent or tint to it because some times i mix with my foundation. It is perfect, doesnt make your face greasy, mosturizes and everything. It may be a bit of a higher price but no matter what, right when it is out i get another one. Perfect face mostarizer for everything and i use it a couple times a day!

Okay, so I keep getting new lotions, potions , creams and serums...to the point where long-suffering hubby is asking, "What EXACTLY are you looking for?"


I hate to admit it, but I think I just keep looking for this. It absorbs almost immediately, has a very light scent that fades, doesn't break me out or dry me up, and if it's got 'cones, I can't feel them.


So why, you ask, do I keep spending money on stuff when I have something that's prettttty much perfect? Ummm, because I am a girl and that's just what we do? So far, nothing comes close to this lotion in terms of its positive attributes (Clinique DDML comes close but is tacky when it's hot).


I guess it's just in my nature. Bird gotta fly, fish gotta swim, wife gotta shop (and nag).


My only (minor) quibble is the packaging. As noted elsewhere, getting all of it out can be a pain. I store mine upside down when they get low, but if you're not careful, it can *bloot* all over the place and then you end up putting the extra on your neck and decolletage. Which works pretty good too, come to think of it, so what's my problem? (Guess I need to add "wife gotta complain" to that list)


This lotion is mild enough that hubby will even use it on his extremely oily face after a sun/wind/snow burn (with much coaxing to put on the girly stuff!)


Five lippies, pretty much one of my HG staples around here if I wasn't such a unfaithful moisturizer slut.

Got this for Christmas from my Mum. It makes my skin feel great, I generally put it on before bed. But the smell makes me feel sick, a little too flowery/strong for my liking.

Great as a general moisturizer for night. Makes my combination skin soft and smooth. The smell gets a little cloying after awhile, hence the four lippies.
