African-American woman. Combination/ Oily skin. MUF 177. NW 43
I use Cetaphil to wash my face, Cereve PM moisturizer, Nutrogena Beach Defence sunblock (I spray the sunblock once on a foam wedge and gently tap it onto my face), and Olay Regenerist Regenerating serum. I love the Regenerating serum, and thought a 'deep hydration cream' would leave my skin softer. It did not. The cream did not ever completely absorb into my skin. It left a smooth, dry, discolored film over my skin. If you have tan to dark skin you might not be able to wear this alone as a moisturizer. If your skin is lighter it might work for you.
If you decide to try it out, make sure that you use LESS than a pea size amount.
I use it under makeup with Black Radiance Shine Control primer. My makeup goes on smooth, last 12 hours, shine free, and just matte enough. I am not going to repurchase if I find one high end/ drugstore product that does the job of both of these. It would be cheaper.

Wanted a change, since I have had good luck with olay cleanser and regenerist serum, I decided to give this a try. My skin always seems to go haywire when the seasons change, with breakouts etc. After using this for 2 weeks I am impressed, having combo, oily skin, this sets to a soft matte finish, there is no need for a primer over top. If you have dry skin you probably won't like this. I normally gravitate towards fragrance free skin care, but the scent of this is fairly light and disappears quickly. I have noticed it helps with my post pimple hyper pigmentation and so far ( knock on wood), it hasn't irritated my skin, skin feels soft but not greasy and seems to help to keep the oilies at bay!

I am one of those women who has yet to find facial products that I like enough to stick with. It seems something is always missing! I have combo skin that is sometimes oily throughout my T zone and I get dry patches, especially around my random breakouts. Generally I have good skin, with a few breakouts periodically and mild redness around my nose and on my cheeks.
I had been using Garniers Cool Gel Cream, the green one, for sometime, after washing with their face wash for dull skin. It didn't do anything "wrong" but I felt like it wasn't doing much "right" either. I didn't notice any difference in the radiance of my skin. I felt dull and tired, so I decided to jump on the anti aging band wagon and give Olay a try.
I bought this lotion in a 3 pack combo with the Regenerating Cream Cleanser and the Eye Lifting Serum. $29.99 was a good price for the three, considering the lotion alone is 20 bucks..
I do like this lotion, I feel it moisturizes my face very well, however I do feel that one "full" push on the bottle puts out WAY too much lotion and the first few nights of having that whole amount on my skin resulted in waking up to tiny white oil pimples.. So I lessened the amount I pushed out, which is easy to do if you're careful and I haven't had any problems since then.
This lotion wears well under my foundation and powder routine. It is actually so smooth and nice feeling that some days I don't even need a primer before foundation because this lotion allows it to go on so nice. But again, if I used the full amount when pressing down on the bottle, my face would get rather oily. There is a light smell to this product, but I feel it's very fresh smelling and I don't mind it at all. My skin looks and feels great when I apply this!
Overall, I feel like this product is worth the money. I have tried maaaaaany lotions from drugstore to high end and this works well for me. I finally feel like I found a keeper and I would repurchase. Some other anti aging products I've tried, like Revlon, completely ruined my skin during it's use and I literally gave away all of those products, but this line seems to work well with my skin.
Look up my review for the cleanser and eye serum as well!

I bought this product on a whim. I had been searching for a moisturizer with spf but was afraid that using a moisturizer after I apply my Olay regenerist regenerating serum (WHICH I LOVE!) would be too much for my skin. I hadn't found a good spf moisturizer the day I had been to the pharmacy so I decided to give my theory a try with this. I have combination skin and tend to get very oily on my Tzone. This absorbed well and seemed like a nice light moisturizer. But unfortunately, as I suspected, it was too much for my skin. I got cystic acne below the surface of my skin (in my oily areas) which I assumed was because my skin got too oily when I used this with the serum. At first I thought maybe my skin just needs to get accustomed to the product, but it never seemed to. I tried using it on a night instead of daytime as well but the bumps just kept coming.They didn't bother me much as they don't really show on the surface of the skin and only hurt when I pressed the area. Using it without the serum may have reduced how much oil my skin produced but cutting out my serum was NOT AN OPTION. I tossed this moisturizer, continued with the serum alone and my skin is back to normal.

This is by far the best moisturizer I have used. I use it in the morning and at night. I do not have to reapply, it isn't greasy at all, absorbs very well and actually makes my skin so smooth. I wish I would have found this sooner!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brunette, Medium Eyes: Blue
My skin type is OSWP.
This moisturizer was ok, was it worth the $? for a drugstore product? I'm not sure. It seeped into my skin, but my skin isn't particularly dry. I feel like it did not do much good, but it didn't do harm either (greasy, break outs, etc). If I have bad luck in the moisturizer department, I may return to it.

I'm in my 20s but I've always been told it's good to start preventing signs of aging early. I bought this moisturizer because Olay is trusted and always gets great reviews. I have a hard time finding a moisturizer that doesn't make me greasy or break me out. This stuff is amazing! It smells nice, feels so luxurious on the skin and it makes my skin unbelievably soft. Like others have said, I tend to use it at night and wake up with fresh, radiant looking skin. I would definitely recommend this moisturizer!

I'm in my early 30's but I've always been told by my mother when I was young to start using face creams in your 20's and 30's since its easier to prevent aging rather than reverse it (of course none of us can escape it)!
I have oily skin, but I decided to use this since Olay has always had good reviews and they never promiss you miracles, but this face cream lotion does make my skin feel very nice. I use it at night, but my skin feels much more hydrated and I havn't noticed any breakouts. I have not been using it for more than a few weeks so far, but will edit if I see anything new. So far so good because it soaks into your skin without feeling greasy, or oily. :) It's great for winter especially and my face does feel much better.

I have been using Ponds Dry Skin cream lately, as my Aveeno Positively Radiant lotion I used in the past ran out and I just needed something cheap to moisturize with. I picked up Ponds and, though it does work on a basic level, it wasn't quite what I was looking for. (Look out for my review on the product in the next couple of days, if you're interested) It was decent but I needed something better.
One night after showering, I noticed my stepmother had left her Olay Regenerating lotion on the counter and I thought "What the heck, why not" and applied it to my damp face.
I can safely say that this is my HG facial lotion, at least thus far.
It absorbs quickly and leaves my skin with a matte finish. My skin feels soft and moisturized all day without getting shiny. It isn't really a 'deep moisture' cream, though. The scent is very light and, though most would liken the smell to something older women would wear, I don't mind.
The packaging is handy and pretty straight-forward; a 'button' that you push down and a perfect amount comes from a little hole in the center. It seems like very little would be wasted with this kind of product.
I'm thinking about picking some up in the next couple days, since I don't want to get in trouble for using my stepmothers, haha!
