I have used versions of this moisturizer on and off for as long as I can remember. This particular formulation is, for me, a pretty perfect drugstore moisturizer for my dry, sensitive skin. Usually, with anything I dare to put on my face, I'm mostly concerned that I won't turn red and itchy right away. This actually makes my skin look nice and glowy.


- sometimes fluid doesn't fully absorb
- the packaging sucks. It's impossible to get anything out of the bottle. I usually end up whacking it against my hand and spattering moisturizer in unreachable corners of the bathroom. Also, difficult to screw the top back on when you've just put moisturizer on. Why can't Olay, with all their r&d dollars, figure out a way to deliver a nice pump bottle?

After my favorite moisturizer got discontinued (The Dove one with the blue cap and I believe it had SPF as well), I looked for a replacement and my mom said that Olay was always good, so I gave it a go. I think it is good, but it doesn't seem to absorb into my skin very quickly... I tend to use this more at night because of this reason, right after I clean my skin and need a very heavy moisturizer (come to think of it, I may as well use the night cream from Olay then, haha). It does hydrate very very well, it seems, and it is a very lovely scent, in my opinion. It fades quickly and isn't strong. A very subtle baby powder kind of smell.

Overall, I like this product, but for me, I need and want an SPF daily cream I can use for my face during the day.

For reference: I have oily skin!!

I have been a fan of the active hydrating cream but I wanted to try something a bit lighter and not as thick. This product is awesome!! It has the same scent as the cream, which I don't mind because it disappears once applied. Because my skin is oily, I only use a little bit; one dot on forehead and on each cheek. This moisturizer is perfect to apply right before your foundation because it makes application so much smoother and easier. Definitely would repurchase this instead of the cream next time!!

This product is a light moisturizer, that quickly absorbs into skin, with a very vintagey / rose scent. (some people say it reminds them of grandmothers, mothers, etc.) It comes out with a consistency equivalent to most other moisturizers, doesn't have a silicone-y feel, and doesn't have a watery consistency.
I have very acne / break out prone skin that reacts to literally almost every product I've used on my face (other than eye makeup / powders and blushes). Surprisingly though, even with such a heavy scent, this product doesn't break me out at all and keep my skin very clear. I began using this about a year ago, and used it all through the spring thru fall with no problem, but once it hit winter time my skin began to become dry so i had to switch moisturizers. I definitely think this is better for normal to combination skin types, it may be too moisturizing for oily skin, but not moisturizing enough for dry skin.
Overall, I would recommend this product.

What is that smell?The pink active hydrating fluid smells quite bad, looks greasy on my very dry skin in winter, and does not absorb well. It does hydrate OK , did not break me out , so points for that.

I love this classic product! I understand that there are a zillion better formulated moisturizers out there, but I absolutely adore this product. First of all, itís super cheap and can be found at any drugstore. Also its PINK and smells like powdery roses which I enjoy. This moisturizes my combination/sensitive skin well without making it to oily or thirsty for more. I use this simply to moisturize and thatís it. I donít expect it to prevent wrinkles or even out my skin tone. I know that there is nothing in this lotion that can do that. After my toner and serums, this just moisturizes and seals in all the goodies. It has never made my acne prone skin break out or cause any reaction because itís fragranced. Bottom line, if you looking for a lightweight moisturizer that will do nothing else but simply hydrate your skin, this is a great option!

Have been using this product since I started moisturising. It's perfect to use before applying make up.
I need something a bit heavier for night time, but use this every morning, love the effect it has on my skin.

Smells great, hydrating but not too heavy for during the day. Love it!

This stuff is nice. It's what I've been using for years. The thing that always makes me happy about a product is when it doesn't break me out. I haven't used any other moisturizers though bc I'm scared they'll break me out so I don't have anything to compare this to.

YUCK! I'm not sure if my skin is weird but this is the WORST moisturizer I have EVER used. I tried it since it came in a 3 pack over Christmas time with some toner and cleanser. This face cream actually dried my skin out MORE than it already was and turned my face red from dryness. It smells gross in my opinion, and I'm not fond of it's packaging... I'm a fan of the dip-in jars instead of squeezing a bottle to get it out. I threw it right in the garbage after the first use.
If it works for you, that's great! But it just didn't work out for me at all unfortunately.

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
