THIS IS THE BEST.
not only is the spf very effective, the moisturizer has evened out my skin tone and I have gotten compliments on my "glowing" skin. My skin is actually smoother and this does not break me out like my Clinique moisturizer usually does. It does not leave a white cast and the consistency is thick yet smooth and creamy which I really like, it blends in very well. This product is "complete" perfection for my skin.

I use this to mix in and sheer out any thick or quickdrying foundations, and also to provide good sun protection during the day (i have hyperpigmentation). As a stand alone moisturizer it's not too bad either. It's about £10.99 in the UK, I got it on offer at Superdrug for around £6.49. It's 75ml so very long lasting and good value. It smells pretty nice too. Overall a sweet little product.

I have been using the complete spf15 for quite a few years & decided to go up to the 30spf. Even though I got the sensitive version, my skin could not tolerate it. It was too much. Red, burning & acatullay dired my skin out. Am returning the 30 & going back to the 15.

HORRIBLE product. This caused large red hive bumps all over my face after only hours of application. This is definitely not for sensitive skin as it is marketed. Cannot recommend!

I bought this moisturizer because none of my moisturizers had enough SPF, if any. I really like it. It wears well under my makeup, it's not greasy. It gives me a little bit of a white cast initially but I find that it goes away. Most impressively, it doesn't break me out. I have clearer skin after using this moisturizer and while I don't think that it helped to clear my skin I can say with certainty that it did not break me out at all. I bought the sensitive skin version because I didn't want anything with fragrance in it.

I'm really sensitive to the smell and feel of sunscreen, so using this all over my face did not work out well at all. The worst was when it would somehow get in my mouth and the taste of sunscreen would linger for hours. I find that I tolerate Kiehl's Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+ very well on my face, so now for my face I use a moisturizer without sunscreen on top of the Kiehl's. BUT, I still like this Olay moisturizer because I can use it on my neck and chest. I find it works really well for those areas. That way, I don't use as much of the crazy expensive Kiehl's lotion or my moisturizer but my neck and chest are still taken care of.

I decided to move up to a higher SPF to ward off the worsening of hyperpigmentation. I was already using Olay's lotion in SPF 15, so this product was the first one to try. It has a smooth consistency and no discernible fragrance.
It doesn't break me out, which is key. However, I can't consider this a moisturizer because it doesn't moisturize my skin. I have to use something underneath to hydrate. (On the other hand, it does not make my skin greasy, which is a plus.) The sunscreen in this will burn and sting any scratches, picked pimples, or freshly exfoliated skin. Overall, this is a good sunscreen and I would repurchase.

Very good protection with spf 30 but not moisturising enough! my skin still feels dehydrated. Careful, this lotion leaves a white cast.

This has been my favorite sunblock so far. Previously, I was using DDF Matte SPF30 and when that was discontinued, I used Estee Lauder DayWear SPF30 until that was discontinued too. I then went on a sunblock hunt trying all low-end and high-end products looking for the perfect sun protection/moisturizer with at least SPF 30, gentle for daily use, uses zinc or titanium dioxide (my skin is sensitive to avobenzone), non-greasy, non-pore clogging, does not contain silicones, and have some anti-aging ingredients. I was disappointed at the bevy of products I tried that at one point, I even considered finding a way to make my own sunblock/moisturizer. I finally came across this Olay Complete SPF30. While this product doesn't check all the boxes on my laundry list of requirements, it definitely comes close. What I love about this is that it is non-greasy and it doesn't give as much of a white cast as some products do. It offers pretty good sun protection for daily use (I get very minimal freckles, sun spots when using this product). It is gentle and hasn't caused breakouts. And it contains some antioxidant ingredients and is moisturizing without making my face oily. It does contain silicones however which to me, makes it harder to wash off. And I also wish that it would contain better antioxidant ingredients. For the concerns with silicones, I ensure to wash thoroughly at night with a good cleanser (I love Korres Milk Protein Cleanser). I also apply a light layer of the Derma-e DMAE Alpha Lipoic C-Ester Serum and wait a few seconds before applying the Olay Complete SPF30 to add some good antioxidants. I'll continue to use this product until I find that perfect sunblock. In the meantime, this continues to be my HG!

This was one of my HG sunscreen/moisturizers back in high school. I am now in my mid-20s. It is very affordable and the packaging has changed for the better with a pump. I know that this has been reformulated over the years however which is why I can't give the latest Olay spf30 a high rating. I have acne-prone, dry and sensitive skin. Although this is suppose to be formulated for sensitive skin it made my skin red. Years ago this did not happen. I am pretty sure it is the result of the new formulation. It upsets me that it did not work for my sensitive skin since it is an affordable everyday moisturizer. On the upside it did not contribute to any breakouts. Due to the reaction I had (I used it for a almost a week) I stopped using it. A big downside for many drugstore skin care is that you can't use samples before buying. Always patch test a new product is what I have learned over the years.

I love this product. As a very, very fair-skinned person, I need to wear SPF on my face every day, but my search for a good product has been a long one. Everything I've tried was too greasy/not moisturizing enough/broke me out/didn't wear well under makeup/the list goes on.
This product is great. It absorbs quickly, doesn't break me out, and doesn't affect my makeup application. It's moisturizing, but not greasy. It probably won't be heavy enough on its own in the winter (right now, I apply it directly after serum, but winters where I live are cold), but I'd rather have to layer a little extra moisturizer in the winter than use a greasy, heavy product year-round. I do wish it were a little lighter on the iffy chemicals, but for me, sun protection is the most important thing, and despite a lot of experimentation I've yet to find a sunscreen from a "natural" line that doesn't feel heavy and break me out. Also, you can't beat the price, and it's easy to find, which is always a plus.

I am not quite sure how I feel about this product. I've been using it on and off for a couple of years on my combo/oily/acne prone skin. On one hand, it works great as a moisturizer, however as a sunscreen, I think it falls a little short.
*Affordable and easy to find
*Not sweat proof, and because I have oily skin, this seems to not quite "meld" to my skin. It comes off very easily if I sweat or become oily
*Is not mattifying (however does not seem to add to the shine on my oily t zone). I realize I have to look to Japanese type sunscreens if I want a mattifying sunscreen, so I won't take off any lippies for this.
*It's possible this is giving me some clogged pores if I wear it daily
Verdict: I would give this 4 lippies as a moisturizer (with a little SPF as a bonus), but 3 lippies as a sunscreen. Even though I think this product would be ok for fall/winter cooler weather when I am not outside , I will most likely not repurchase. These days I prefer to buy a separate moisturizer and sunscreen, that way I can put the moisturizer underneath on dry areas only and use a more protectant/sweat resistant sunscreen.

I've been through at least 6 of these over the years, searching for a decent facial sunscreen to control my melasma. For years I used various Euro ss, settling for a long time on Avene..until they added avobenzone into their formulas. I have three other high-end, Zinc O based sunscreens in my cabinet, and none are as moisturizing yet non greasy, fast to apply, and easy to apply mu over as this. It does not have the top of the line UVA protection like some others, but for ease of use...which turns into not skipping it when I'm rushed....this is the #1 daily use choice for me currently. Oh, and unlike many others, this never clogs my pores and is easy to remove

I like the SPF 30 of this lotion, it's not greasy, fragrance free, absorbs well, does a bit of moisturizing at the same time, and doesn't seem to have anything irritating in it. The bottle is fairly small so I go through it quickly. I really can't find anything wrong with it. It does what its supposed to do. I would repurchase.

I have used this product on and off since my early 20s, and at 35 I can say my skin looks significantly younger. After trying higher UVA protection that contained avobenzone, I found my skin was actually damaged (hyperpigmentation). I went to using all physical SS, which I do believe is the most stable protection. However, after trying many formulas, I just could not find a cosmetically elegant product to wear under my m/u, so I have returned to this Olay product for everyday wear. I am able to use the full 1/4th tsp to get the label protection, and after 5 minutes, my face feels moisturized but not at all greasy, and m/u applies smoothly over it. I can wear it all around my eyes with no irritation. It doesn't have any fragrance, but it does have that slight hint of sunscreen smell, which luckily doesn't bother me. I like the 6% Zno content and find that the slight white cast from it fades very quickly (though maybe this is b/c my skin is already pretty pale). This is not super high UVA protection, but as someone who is not out in the direct sun very much, it works for me very well. I do like the pump dispenser, but this can cause a lot of product waste as well. I find this for about $12.00 on drugstore.com (NA), but I noticed many of the regular drugstores either don't carry this any more or it is priced outrageously for a d/s product ($17.00+). Target usually has it at a reasonable price though. I am giving this 5 lippies because I think that it delivers as much as one can expect for the price and claims it makes. As this item gets harder to find, I am really hoping Olay doesn't discontinue it!

I'm NC40/42 and had to return this as it gave me tremendous whitecast. I liked it in every other respect aside from that, but that whitecast was a complete deal-breaker.

I was looking for a new moisturizer, especially with a high SPF and was glad to know this product was PABA free, as I am very allergic, but I still ended up getting a very severe allergic reaction. I wish I knew exactly what reacted with me in this, but I'm not sure, if anyone has any idea as to what could have been the cause, please let me know, as I would very greatly appreciate it!

It's great stuff...bought this after Biore discontinued their Dual Fusion Spf 30. I love it

For the price, this is a very good quality product. I had been using PCA Skin Hydrating Protector SPF 30, but ran out and at $32 a bottle I couldn't justify repurchasing with a move on the horizon. The chemicals used for sun protection in both products are almost identical. They also both leave a matte yet moisturized shine-free finish. My only concern now is that Olay doesn't change it's formula. There is a version of this product on Ulta's website that includes Avobenzone instead of the Zinc Oxide. That particular ingredient is sure to leave your face a greasy mess! The version you want has Octinoxate (7.5%), Zinc Oxide (6%), Octisalate (2.5%), Octocrylene (2.5%) as the active ingredients.

I love this moisturiser. For an SPF 30+ I find it's non-greasy and I can use a substantial amount and it will absorb without me getting oily skin. Leave it for 10 minutes and my makeup goes over it like its not even there. This is my new go to moisturiser every morning.
