LOVE this lotion! It's lightweight, absorbs quickly and makes a great base for applying face makeup! It has never broken me out and never turns my face greasy or sticky like some other lotions with SPF even in the high summer heat. On my third bottle and it hasn't disappointed!

Mine has pink print on the front that says "All Day Moisturizer with sunscreen BROAD SPECTRUM".
I can't use chemical sunscreens on my face. I bought this lotion for my hands. I am well aware that hands suffer from UV damage every bit as much as other exposed parts of the body but I struggled to find a sunscreen that didn't cost the earth, didn't stink, and didn't feel sticky, tacky, coated, or gross on my hands. I wanted something that felt like a nice hand cream.
This stuff is the goods. I can apply it liberally and it sinks in and moisturizes nicely. The smell is pleasant and light. Only 15spf isn't ideal (at some point I will probably try the spf30 version) but I live with it since I reapply it frequently, like hand cream -- at minimum, before I go outside and after each time I was my hands.
From what I understand the sunscreen ingredients are stable and complete. It's not the cheapest sunscreen in existence, but I feel it's reasonable for using on such a small part of my body, and of course many stores have identical generic versions of it.

4.5 for the original lotion with no SPF
3.0 for the SPF version... nice lotion, just not for me
The original lotion without SPF was one of my favorite facial lotions, affordable, gentle, non-greasy, non-irritating, smelled lovely, etc. Then one day decided to try the SPF15 version (for combination/oily skin) and I was not less impressed for several reasons.
#1 The smell of sunscreen in a lotion is not cute, and the lotion felt a bit powdery on my face likely due to the sunscreen.
#2 This is SPF so I don't want to use it at night. I just don't like to leave unnecessary chemicals on my face. But then during daylight, SPF15 is like nothing, I still need another sunscreen. Geez why did I buy the SPF?
#3 When my skin became sensitive due to acne medication, almost all lotions and creams can irritate my skin, but this lotion irritated the most. I suspect the irritation came from the sunscreen in there, but funny enough my Neutrogena facial sunscreen did not irritate me.

I use this moisturizer day and night. It does very well mixed with my concealer and then set with powder.I also use this as a night time moisturizer...couldn't be happier.

I have been using this product for at least 8 years off and on.
I use the Combination/Oily version throughout the summer. It keeps greasiness under control all day. During the winter I will use the normal or sensitive skin (which ever is available when I need it) for added moisture.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Brunette, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
I have been using this in both the combination and sensitive formulas religiously for the last seven years. It's a lightweight moisturizer with added SPF and it's never broken me out. It's also doubled as a makeup remover for me in a pinch.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I love it. It's moisturizing for every day wear. It has SPF15. It would've been better if it was SPF 30. It doesn't break me out. It leaves a slight white cast. I love the packaging - it's sanitary! You don't have to dip your fingers in a jar :D I love it.

I've been using this since I was a young teen. I put it on right after I shower, whether I follow it up with makeup or not. It has protected my face from sun and it has kept my skin from getting too dried out.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Brown, Curly, Medium Eyes: Hazel
I've been using this product since I was a teenager and absolutely love it! I've tried different moisturizers (more expensive ones) but always go back to this one... If it ain't broken don't fix it right!
Age: 36-43 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Blond Eyes: Brown
I've been using this for almost 20 years. It's the only SPF moisturizer that doesn't aggravate my acne. I keep trying higher SPFs that break me out and wind up going back to this. I've given up and just started wearing a baseball cap with the SPF 15. I use this for my am and pm moisturizer.

I've been using this moisturizer for two years by now mainly because it's affordable and it works for my skin. I like how it has SPF so I don't have to worry about applying sunscreen during the sunnier months but the downside of it having SPF is that it leaves shine on your face especially if you have oily skin like I do but I normally just blot the excess oil with oil blotting sheets throughout the day so I can control the shine. Overall, it's a good product and I'll probably continue using it unless I find something that's better.

For the last 4/5 years I've been having a lot of trouble with my skin, dryness being one of the issues. The winters where I live are often dry and cold, meaning that my skin gets flaky and tight without care. I also am prone to breakouts, and so have been searching for a moisturizer that won't aggravate my skin.
I bought this product about 3 months ago, when the moisturizer I had been using ran out, mostly because my previous product just wasn't cutting it. So far so good. It leaves my skin feeling a little greasy (and not as hydrated as I would like), but it doesn't seem to have caused any breakouts. I use it every morning and the occasional evening. It has a slight smell, which I'm not exactly a fan of, but the bottle is compact and closes tight, which makes it excellent for taking with me to the gym; no worries about getting lotion all over my spare socks.
I recommend it for people in need of a relatively cheap and simple moisturizer that comes in a mess-proof container. Otherwise, it seems fairly average.

I'm pretty satisfied with this product. Doesn't really help heal dry skin in the winter. Maybe on warm days. I like how it has SPF in it!
UPDATE (5/9/2012): I really like this product still, but it contains methylparaben which ages skin when in contact with UV.

I'm not sure which Olay moisturizer I had, but the bottle I had looks kind of like the picture. The one I used was amazing, I loved it. It smelled nice & moisturized great without being oily/greasy. This didn't irritate my skin in any way. The bottle comes with a lot. I would definitely repurchase:)

This is lightweight and has an SPF but it burns the crap out my skin once it's applied. I wouldn't buy this again. I felt like it didn't sink into my skin and left an oily film on top of my face.

I bought this a while back because I wanted a simple SPF moisturizer. I don't know if I got a bottle from a bad batch or what, but I swear that there is something gritty in this lotion. Every time I smoothed this lotion on my face, I would feel the gritty little particles, which left my skin feeling irritated for a few minutes. After that, my face would feel fine and I never had any major reaction to it. This texture issue just put me off of this lotion, and I have used other Olay moisturizers without a problem.

I have the Olay Complete All Day UV Moisturizer with vitamin E & B3 UV Skin Shield SPF 15. I have to be specific becaus its hard with all the versions! Mine says combination/oily. I got it because it has improved UVA protection which are the ones that cause aging! On the back it also says it has vitamins C and E. but I don't know why they took off the vitamin A. It's oil-free and non-comedogenic. It's easy to apply and absorbs good. I love it!
EDIT: I started disliking this product alot. At first it seems like a nice, thin, liquid texture but it appears very greaqsy on my skin and doesnt absorbs very well. And it's become a low SPF for my preference and was a horrible moisturizer-didn't hydrate very much. And I didn't like the squeeze bottle.

It seems like there are so many different versions of this on here...
The product I have looks just like the one in the picture...I have combo skin that will break-out mildly from the wrong ingredients...
There is a version of this product that uses chemical sunscreen (i.e. octylcrylene, avobenzone, octinoxate, octisalate, oxybenzone) which my skin will NOT tolerate...if you have sensitive skin, look for a physical sunscreen (i.e. zinc oxide or titanium dioxide)...the version I have that I use every day has the physical sunscreen and works great.
I think it good probably stand to be a little more moisturizing, but it works and it's inexpensive and I like to stick with the basics for my skincare during the day...spf, moisture and whatever antioxidants and vitamins I can get. At night is when I will truly nourish and treat my face to everything it needs to stay healthy and young.

This is a staple for me...not HG, but I don't think I'm going to try looking for anything better anytime soon.

I picked this up at a local CVS for about $10. I have this product in the sensitive skin formula (which has no fragrance). It comes in a squeeze bottle for easy application and no waste of product. The moisturizer itself is thin and creamy, so it can be layered on for lots of moisture without the heavy feeling. I intend to repurchase when I run out and recommend.

This moisturizer works very well. I bought it in the summer and I loved it. Now it's getting colder out and the winds are just crazy. So my face got really dry. This kind of smells like sunscreen but not as overpowering. I like the spf and since I started using it, my face hasn't gotten any tanner. I have this in the combination version, not the normal version. It doesn't make my t-zone oily and keeps the oil under control. But like I said, my dry areas aren't too moisturized and now it's getting flaky. Oh yeah, I got the 6 fl.oz for about $10 at wal-mart not on sale.
Update: This moisturizer is great. My flaky areas were because of our rusty water, not the wind. It moisturizes very well and if you rub it into your hands first, then your face, it soaks in a lot better. This also does protect from the sun, but sadly I have gotten tanner, but just a little bit. This controls oil very well, except by my nose, but that's okay. It also could moisturize my cheeks a little better, but that's okay too. Overall I love this moisturizer and I will purchase another.
