I love this. It is heavy, so use it before bed. If I put it on right after I exfoliate my skin, it gets red. I do like it for a night cream though. Its very moisturizing, and smells pretty

I've tried so many facial moisturizers, I couldn't name them all if I tried (a small sample: Clinique, Aveeno, Shiseido, Kiehl's...). I have very dry, sensitive skin, and more targeted facial moisturizing creams tend to irritate/break out my skin. I always return to this, as I've found that it's the one reliable product that will not irritate my skin. The only complaints I might have is that it doesn't necessarily seem to improve the quality of my skin, it does not contain sunscreen, and it is also not extremely moisturizing. In the winter, I like to layer a retinol sunscreen over this for additional moisture.

I love Olay Active Beauty Fluid. It's my favorite moisturizer for warmer months since I find it to be not heavy enough for winter. I love the delicate scent, it reminds me of my mom and grandmother. Most drugstores and grocery stores carry this and it's always generally $5-$8 for a bottle. I miss the glass jars and bottles that they used to package their products in. I hope Olay never discontinues or reformulates this foundational product! It's a great basic moisturizer that leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth, and lightly fragranced.

Olay active hydrating beauty Fluid (original) is NOT the original Classic Oil Of Olay beauty fluid that your grandmother or mother swore by. They no longer even call it Oil of Olay. Only Olay. It has different combinations and amounts of ingredients. It's only made by the same company. But it is NOT the same lotion. The texture and scent is that of Johnson's baby lotion now. However, I will tell you that the old recipe consisted of. Mineral oil and its full of cancer enhancing parabans. I have never seen Lanolin on the label even way back in 1970. Mineral oil is the only oil in it and your body will not absorb mineral oil. In a positive note it Now it has less of that and more Glycerin. It has no parabans either so its safer to use. But its a better value to by Johnsons Baby lotion because its basically the same thing now days. The only moisture in it that is like skin is water.

I love this moisturizer! I use it daily, at night after washing my face, applying toner, and applying eye cream. Because I have really oily skin, I feel like this moisturizer is light enough not to feel greasy at all but hydrating enough for my skin to feel smooth and supple. I also love the smell. It's great and will continue to be a staple in my beauty regimen.

I have oily but aging (read: drying out) skin and my usual moisturizer was just not cutting it anymore. A couple of weeks ago I picked up a bottle of this moisturizer, I figured it had been around forever for a reason, right?

While this formula is nice, it isn't very moisturizing. Even after applying, my face still seemed tight and felt really parched just a few hours later. I used this at night and would usually end up applying another moisturizer on top of it before bed.

Will not be re-buying.

My mom and nana swore by this and had great skin. I love the smell and the feel on my skin. It truly moisturizing. It smells so good I look forward to applying it. I like that it's old school Olay, the most famous one. I recall my mom and nana's were in a gorgeous glass bottle with the oil of okay lady on it. Just takes me back. Love it

Really wanted to like this product since it left my skin feeling smooth and supple; however, it really irritated my cheeks so I had to stop using this after a few days.

This lotion was too irritating for my sensitive skin. I used it for a few days, and while it hydrating nicely, it left my face red and irritated by the end of the second day. I don't know if it's the fragrance or what, but I couldn't tolerate it. I was hoping for find a cheap alternative for my $35 I spend every few months on Korres Yoghurt Cream, but alas... thats the one I always run back to when nothing else works.
