Just bought this one for myself. I loved the smell right off but thought I'd wait a while to see how it was. As I walked the store several people commented on how nice I smelled, so I was pleased. I went to another store and people there made comments too, so I went back to the first store and bought it. I love it. I am wearing it every day. The women's one is okay but too sweet for me. The men's is just right. My new spring fling!
The texture is a bit thick and sticky but that seems to make it stay on longer. The colors I have come out much lighter than I would have liked but for $1 I'll just try different ones. They have scent and taste, if that is concern to anyone, and a small amount of product. Great buy I think!
Lip Gloss -E.L.F. - Luscious Liquid Lipstick - ALL

I was quite surprised how good these are for $1. I would say these are more gloss than lipstick, though the applicator is not a brush like the gloss packaging, it is a hard plastic sponge. I found the pink lemonade color stays on a bit longer than some other cheap glosses, so I like that. You don't get much product but I find that is a bonus since you can try other colors often, and are replacing the applicator more often than using an old product for a long time. These do have scent and taste, but I like both.
These sheets are wonderful. They are a bit thin so I usually need at least two ( so gave them 4*) but many other brands are the same way. For the price they can't be beat. I buy 6 packs at a time.
Treatments -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream

I have purchased this cream several times now. I use it at night over a cream I use for spot lightening. Most retinol products make my face red, not this one. I usually buy a couple when they are on sale.
I find this product works pretty well for me. I don't get oily as quickly. I also find it works better if you apply a small amount. At first I used too much thinking this would soak up the oil, when all that happened was it got cakey under my powder. And often it will be on sale, so the price is reasonable.
Cleansers -Olay - Total Effects Age Defying Wet Cleansing Cloths

I'm finding all these wet cloths from Olay don't really take off all the MU. I end up using 2 and then washing afterward. They do feel refreshing and are better than not removing your MU at all. Still a great idea and good to use in a pinch.
This cleanser came as a free gift with another Olay product. I find it to be almost the same as other foaming Olay cleansers in appearance and performance so I would buy it again, but only on sale. The increase in cost and name ( Total Effects) over the cheaper Olay cleansers is to me just a marketing ploy.
These were an impulse purchase due to a great sale price. They are a great idea but don't remove makeup very well. And I think most people would need 2 to get a reasonably clean face. So I still end up washing after using them in the evening. I find them handy to use in the morning, but will not buy again.
Moisturizers -Olay - Regenerist DNA superstructure UV cream SPF 30
Lupina 1/2/2012 5:51:00 PM
I had been using the Regenerist SPF 15 but decided to try this one because of the higher SPF rating, and it was on sale. I like it a lot and plan to repurchase it. I still need to blot my oily areas after a couple of hours (no matter what product I use) so it may turnout to be too rich for the warmer weather months. For now I'm happy with it.
Cleansers -Olay - Sensitive Skin Foaming Face Wash
Lupina 11/26/2011 5:29:00 PM
This cleanser is very similar to Neutrogena's Fresh Foaming Cleanser. I like it better due to the non fragrant option. It does a great job. However it isn't so good at removing water proof or water resistant eye and makeup products, so I use a different cleanser for those times. I am using this now in the winter months and it is not drying on my face, but I wonder how well it will be in the humid summer when my face is oily.
Moisturizers -Olay - Regenerist UV Defense Regenerating Lotion spf 15
Lupina 8/21/2011 5:06:00 PM
I usually wear SS/SB every day of at least SPF30. I wanted to get sun protection and anti aging in one product that also is workable for combo skin. I have used this for only one week now so it will take some time to fully assess. So far I don't like the scent. Fragrance free would be so nicer. It applies nicely and at first it seemed too rich but after a few seconds it absorbed. A couple of times I did use an oil blotting sheet before applying my powder, but after a few hours it did not seem to matter in the oiliness of my skin. I'm not sure if I would repurchase it because there are so many ones to try out next. And only time and consistant use will tell me if if works on my lines, ect. Up date: Have uesd this for several months now and like it the more I use it. I still am not crazy for the smell. I think I would repurchase as it seems to work well for combo skin.
Treatments -Olay - Regenerist Daily Regenerating Serum - Fragrance Free
Lupina 8/21/2011 4:33:00 PM
Thought I would try going the DS route and see how those products would work for me. I like the slip and it doesn't add any shine to my face. At first it seemed harsh so I put less on. It does leave my skin smoother but not sure if it helps with lines and such. I really like the fragrance free aspect. Think I will try other products in the Olay line since the $ is reasonable enough.
Great product that has 2 % BHA and no alcohol! Once my blemishes were under control I use it twice a week. Only get a pimple now if I forget to use it. I stock up when it goes on sale. The price keeps creeping up I've noticed. Hope they never discontinue this one.
Impulse purchase on this product was a mistake. It makes my face look shiny and leaves a tacky feel. Grabs anything you put on top of it so you have a layered feeling. I use it around my eyes with a concealer brush and then blend concealer over, since I am unable to use it any other way. I should have just purchased a concealer that contained SPF. Maybe if you have dry skin you'll like this. Update Decided to try this again, only this time I apply it before anything else on a clean face. It seems to work better than the other times.Still find it tacky but at least I am using it up. Don't plan on repurchasing however.
