At first I really like this product because I found it to be moisturizing and it left my skin feeling nice and plump... also it has spf so an extra bonus! (By the way i have acne prone skin that is combo so I got the one for combo skin)
The packaging is simple but practical, just a bottle where you squeeze out the lotion (but not through a pump)... Price wise I give it a 4 cause I got it for like 7-9 dollars and thats (I would say) the average price of any other moisturizer you might find at the drugstore.
However, I began to absolutely HATE THIS SO MUCHH. Just after a couple days, I stopped feeling that nice plump skin feeling and my skin began to get really dry so I put some extra around my mouth and any other place where my skin felt like it was tight/tugging... and BAM! I BROKE OUT SO BADLY. I couldnt believe that this happened cause it was so good to me in the beginning!
I dont think I'll be using this on my face any time soon anymore (maybe my body).. So acne-prone or sensitive skin people, be careful!!

I didn't like the sun screen feeling (subtle sent?) Of this but i got past that pretty quickly. It's not heavy & not watery at all. I apply this before makeup and it doesn't make me oily.

An ok moisturizer but it leaves my face feeling oily.

I have bought this product several times because of the price. I'm not a huge fan of Olay in general(I'm more of a Neutrogena girl myself), but I do like this product. It's very reasonably priced and easy to use. Not an "all day" moisturizer though, as I find myself needing to apply extra moisturizer throughout the day. But I will probably be buying this again...

I thoroughly enjoy this. I have the beauty fluid but the smell turns me off during Spring/Summer months. It has the right amount of SPF, as the other reviewers said it applies very nicely, skin feels plump and hydrated, non-greasy, just wait 5 minutes prior to makeup application and your skin will feel smooth all day long! Very good stuff. I've been using it every day since I purchased it. I wear it alone or under makeup. You can't beat the price. Very effective and good facial moisturizer.

I'm 20 and I used to have mild acne as a teen , so my skin is prone to breakouts and fairly oily. This is my HG moisturiser. I've been using it for nearly two years. My skin is plump and looks fairly bright. I've only ever had a breakout once or twice since using it. It doesn't do much for my pores so I've give it one less lipstick, but for the price (around £9 for the 200ML, which lasts me around 7-8 months and I use is day and night, summer or winter) I'm not complaining! To give you guys an idea I've uploaded a photo

Needed a moisturizer around my nose area as I tend to flake in that area. It feels good on the skin and hydrates those dry spots, but by the next morning I break out around the area. I thought maybe it was a temporary thing but it has progressively gotten worse over time, the more I applied.
I stopped applying it to see if it really was the moisturizer, and I believe it is the culprit. My mom uses it all the time (who isn't acne prone) and she loves it. Too bad it broke me out.

Olay's Complete All Day Moisturizer is a product that I'm very familiar with, I've been using it on and off for about six years. This moisturizer is available in four varieties, I have the one for normal skin. Olay promises that this product will "condition and help prevent premature skin aging, when used as directed, with broad spectrum SPF UVA/UVB sunscreen, antioxidants, and vitamins E, B3, and C. This moisturizer is oil free, dermatologist tested, and non-comedogemic. I've been switching between Olay's Complete and Beauty Fluid moisturizers, depending on what's cheaper, seasons, etc. I was sent this full size 4fl oz bottle of Olay's Complete Moisturizer by Free Beauty Events in exchange for promoting their monthly giveaways, but I've also purchased this product multiple times with my own money. This moisturizer retails for between $7-11, I believe I pay about $9 for it usually. Unfortunately, Olay does test on animals. Olay does not publish where their products are made.
Olay's Complete Moisturizer comes in a cardboard box that offers lots of product info. I think the box was recently redesigned, if so, kudos Olay, it looks nice! The back of the box lists off a couple quick claims. The side of the box offers this product's "drug facts". Don't be put off by your moisturizer having "drug facts", because this product contains SPF agents, it's government mandated to be packaged this way. A full list of active and inactive ingredients can be found, along with directions. Open up the box and you'll find a white, plastic, rectangular, recyclable bottle with a black screw on cap. The shape is exactly the same as the Beauty Fluid bottle. This bottle has a small hole for dispensing product, which I don't find to be ideal. It's pretty easy to pour out too much product, and the hole clogs up if you're lazy about putting the cap back on like I am. The back of the bottle offers most of the same info as the box.
This moisturizer looks like straight up sunscreen. It's white and on the thicker side. Though it seems to be a little thick when first squeezed out, but it smooths out over the skin in a thin layer. This moisturizer sinks in quickly, but not so fast that you don't feel that it fully hydrates your skin. This is a very comfortable, lotion like moisturizer, it's really pleasant to use. After it's fully sunken in, this moisturizer leaves my skin extremely soft and feeling satisfying hydrated without any greasiness. Olay's Complete Moisturizer promises 8 hour moisture, and I think that's a legit claim. This moisturizer gives me practically white skin a slight, even whiter cast that's pretty noticeable. I can't even imagine what it'd look like on someone with darker skin. The white cast isn't visible anymore after I apply my face makeup, but I'm sure it would reappear if someone were to take a flash photo of me (please don't). This moisturizer is very lightly fragranced, it's the very last ingredient on the list. The scent is very sunscreen-y in nature, which I personally enjoy.
How effective is this moisturizer's SPF? Not that I spend much, if any, time outdoors, but I haven't had any facial sunburns while wearing this moisturizer that I recall. This stuff even does the trick in the harsh Australian sun. As far as I can tell the sun protection even lasts through water exposure, I've worn it to the pool, the beach, Kennywood, Warped Tour, and other wet-type activities - sunburn free! That's coming from someone who is very fair and burns super easily. By the way, if you want/need to know the specific sun blocking ingredients, here they are: Avobenzone (3%), Homosalate (3%), Octisalate (5%), and Octocrylene (2.6%). If you want more than SPF 15, Olay also offers a SPF 30 version that I have not tried.
I have yet to be disappointed by an Olay product! I used to prefer Beauty Fluid, but I think I may be leaning in favor of Complete nowadays! This moisturizer hydrates my skin thoroughly without breaking me out, and it sinks in impressively fast for it's semi-thick texture. The sun protection Olay Complete provides is more than adequate for my needs. This isn't a perfect moisturizer, it does give a white cast, so avoid it if you plan to be photographed. I'll definitely purchase this moisturizer again, I'll probably continue to switch between this and Beauty Fluid, maybe I'll even use them in conjunction! I recommend Olay's Complete Moisturizer; it's affordable, effective, protective, and an overall solid product!

This might officially be my default daytime moisturizer!
I've been through various types of moisturizers. Some broke me out, some showed off the dry patches of my skin (UGH), and some were soo greasy :(
My skin is annoyingly hard to please!
Then I found this moisturizer that fit all my standards!

I consider myself to have "perfect skin". A pimple here and there every few months and that's it, never anything noticeable. Te first time I used this product, I started breaking out. I was using it for about 2-3 weeks but then I gave up. I came back to this product 8 months later, hoping for some better results. Still broke out like crazy. It's generally around my cheek, jaw and neck area, nowhere else on my face. And I wasn't too happy about the formula either. It's not as creamy or moist as I am use to. I have to use a good amount of product to cover my face completely. Will not buy again.

I tried the Normal/Oily version, and it just didn't work for me. The two things I look for in a day moisturiser are whether it makes me oily and whether it breaks me out or not. On the oily side, it's actually fine, which was a big surprise (most things make me really oily). But, as usual with my annoyingly sensitive skin, it broke me out.... Sigh. I would recommend it for someone with normal, combo, or even oily skin. But not for sensitive skin. It also has a really strong fragrance which I didn't like. Note: I've tried the Sensitive version of this and that also broke me out... I just can't do Olay.

Olay makes the best drugstore skincare, in my opinion. Olay complete is great daily protection. For $10 this does more to prevent aging than everything you can possibly use later to reverse aging. It's affordable, simple and not heavy.
Skin cancer runs in my family, and the dermatologists have told many of us to use Olay complete daily sunscreen. I'm blonde, blue eyes, fair skin, basically Scandinavian coloring. I've used this lotion since I was about 15. I'm now in my 30s and look about 10 years younger- often mistaken for a college intern. My other lifestyle choices haven't always been as wise as this. Fortunately, sunscreen (and exercising) makes the biggest difference in your skin. Using this lotion is a great way to start taking care of yourself.
NOTE: Since starting Retin-A, I do notice a little stinging when I apply this, so I may switch to the sensitive version.
OTHER CHOICES: I am often asked if I use an anti-aging SPF lotion. I've mostly used this Olay complete. I have tried some others that may be better for mature skin. In anti-aging both Olay & ROC are excellent. However, I find Olay anti-aging SPF lotions are too heavy, perform poorly under makeup, and expensive. For anti-aging with SPF, I recommend ROC daily SPF moisturizer (multi-correct/ blue bottle). For higher end, I do love Estee Lauder TimeZone with SPF. If it's in your price range and you're already using a retinoid, I recommend the EL over the ROC.

I purchased the oily/combo version of this product and after months of use I would not recommend this to anybody with oily skin. I have acne prone oily skin and I still feel it important to use a sunscreen and moituriser regardless. This product is supposedly designed for oily skin but made my skin much worse. I want to clarify that it did not break me out, although i would get the occasional few spots now and again. However once applied, no matter how lightly, my skin tends to look oily and by the end of the day my face would look completely saturated with oil. I think this product has a pleasant smell, it is reasonably priced and does not irritate the skin however, I think it would best suit those with dry skin.

I've used this product for a few months now, and it has worked very well as a moisturizer. It's nothing special, and certainly can't handle extreme bouts of dryness -- so it definitely can't help with patches of eczema and the like, but it's a good basic moisturizer for people who just need simple, not-too-strong hydration.
There is a scent of sunscreen, but it is not overpowering. It is also a slight bit greasy compared to other moisturizers I have tried. The SPF is a nice touch, but for real benefit, I'd probably opt for a moisturizer that had a bit more protection, or wear it under a foundation that had SPF as well.
I would recommend this product, but did give it a neutral 3 "lippies" because while it works in good times (when the skin doesn't seem to need much moisture), it doesn't cut it for me when I need a moisturizer that is a bit stronger to tackle dryness, yet still works for daily usage when I do not.

I like this product! For refrence I have normal skin (listed above as well) so I can't comment on how this moisturizes for people with dry skin.
I bought this mainly because of the SPF. On days I don't want to wear a BB cream or foundation (all my facial products have SPF), this is the perfect alternative. It's a somewhat thick formula, not greasy. The packaging is nice & simple, and a squeeze bottle makes it easy to get product out. I like how this makes my skin soft and smooth, the product literally melts into my skin and I can feel it really moisturizes. A suggestion to improve the packaging is to make this bottle transparent to see when there isn't any product left. Other than that, I'm hooked!

This is one of my very favourite moisturisers. I like that it has SPF so when I leave out makeup it is enough. Never caused me any brake-out. It is very good for its price. Packaging is very simple, great for traveling too.
Feels very light and is not greasy which how moisturiser should be
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Red, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Brown
I really like this moisturizer! I use it everyday on my face, neck and chest area if it's exposed to sunlight. It's very light, yet my face never feels dry, sticky or oily once it's on. It's fast absorbing and there is little to no fragrance. I would reccomend the larger squeeze-out bottle opposed to the smaller pump bottle because I am having a really hard time getting the second half of it out! I really like that there is spf in it, it's a necessity for an everyday lotion. It's not cheap but it's not crazy expensive, it's under $20 from what I can remember.

I like this.. I use this as my NECK moisturiser, I love it
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Coarse Eyes: Blue
I picked this up a couple of weeks ago and love it. Very nice formula and it moisturizes really well. Plus SPF as a bonus. It hasn't caused me any break-outs like some other SPF-containing moisturizers have, which is great.
I actually picked up a 2-pack at Costco when they had an additional coupon, so I got 2 for the price of 1 in a regular store. Great buy and and will definitely re-buy.

Best spf 15 lotion ever for me. Sinks in immediately, great protection, soft skin, does not aggrevate acne. Unfortunately, it is no longer available in my country (the Netherlands). I wish they would bring it back. If so, I hope it comes in a pump bottle.
