I first tried the cream & liked it so I decided to try the serum & I ended up liking the serum better. It hydrates my skin leaving it very smooth. It has tiny gold glittery flecks but once applied to the skin are not noticeable. Most importantly this does not make me break out my acne prone skin or irritate my skin.

I recently had a craving for this tried-and-true Moisturizer. Mostly, I craved the scent, which reminds me of my beloved little Mom, whom I lost nearly 6 years ago to breast cancer. One of my very first memories of her skincare routine involves this moisturizer. I have fickle, sensitive, mostly dry/dehydrated skin which has now reached its 44th year. After cleansing with Albolene at night, which I tissue off and follow with La Roche Posay Micellar water on a cotton pad, I then apply Estée Lauder serum followed by gently patting Olay beauty fluid all over. I use it on my neck, as well. My skin looks and feels soft and supple, even in the morning. Before applying makeup, I gently swipe more Micellar water to lightly cleanse, and follow with the Olay again. It makes a beautiful base for foundation, or as I use, Garnier tinted moisturizer with sunscreen. This is a no-frills basic moisturizer that really does the job. I love the scent, but for those who don’t, there is a fragrance-free & dye-free version. I kind of wish it still came in the glass bottle like it did when I was a child, but I do like the more sanitary dispensing method from the tiny hole in the plastic bottle.

Wow! I love this! Pros:- I have a very sensitive skin and many products that are designed for sensitive skin still irritate me, but this doesn't!- no white residues;- no greasiness or shine (I have normal to the dry dehydrated skin) in a dry climate;- it made my skin less dehydrated;- unbeatable price for the quality. Cons:- SPF 15 isn't enough on it's on, I still use Shiseido Anessa sunscreen on top;- not really suitable for a humid climate or humid days since it will stay sticky and skin gets shiny in the second half of the day. I live in dry climate and already repurchased it.

I feel this was a quick entry into the overnight mask market. I got it awhile ago while shopping in Target and chose it over Laneige for some reason (price? parabens?). First knock against it is the scent. Please cut out the scenting, Olay. Please. Second, it doesn't hydrate any better than my usual moisturizers or oil. Not even a little, itty, bitty bit. Plain ol' Micro Sculpting Cream has a better texture and provides the overnight moisture I require. Third, the texture is iffy. It's a gel but it's also sticky. I imagine it was made sticky so one would assume it'd cling and do wondrous things overnight. If I could bear to put this scent on my face regularly maybe it would but I'm too terrified I'm going to wake up with an allover face rash. Finally, and fourth, the jar. I don't like the germ inviting wide open jar. I do put up with this setup for things I like but I don't like this so...there. My impression that this is a gratuitous product foisted upon a public newly in love with Korean skin care ideas and it is the only reason I'm doing this review before I finally toss the 3/4 full jar. Your mileage may vary, as always.

Thing is, how can you tell if the magical ingredients in a product are working miracles or if the results come from a diligent skin care routine? I do wonder that as I review this but I will tell you that it absorbs and moisturizes superbly and the vitamins in it provide a little tingle that makes me feel like I've really done something. And, that's quite enough for me. I've been using Neutrogena's Hydro Boost Gel Cream for Extra Dry Skin exclusively for a couple years now and have been very satisfied. I began to notice some spongy texture around my lips, the beginning of marionette lines and a definite little turkey wattle when I lifted my head. My 82 year old mother doesn't have marionette lines and I don't want to look like a turkey so I started to experiment with adding oil before my nightly serum and that did okay for retaining some moisture but it didn't affect that spongy texture a bit. I was going to resign myself to the inevitable while wishing mightily that, over time, what I was doing would eventually show some results. I received the scented version of Micro Sculpting cream in Amazon's beauty box and liked the way it moisturized, hated the way it smelled. When I got the unscented version I switched to it for day and night and, already, the sponge is gone. Yes, it is gone. No lie. I swear. The wattle is gone...so gone. Around my mouth there is still the faint threat of the marionette but that area is as hydrated as I can get it so maybe this is as far as the march of time will go. We hope. Is this a miracle or was my previous cream just not up to the task? Can't say but I'm converted for now. This is good stuff. I loathe the jar though and use either a swab stick or new plastic spoon to dip it out. Easy enough but I am so paranoid about someone wandering into my bathroom and sticking their grubby fingers into it that I keep it out of sight. Crazy, you say? Well...yeah. Compared to the price of old lady face creams at Ulta and Sephora this is a big-ass bargain. Considering it's a jar of moisturizing cream that can be picked up at the grocery store it does make one gulp, the price does cause a brief pause. It's clever marketing though. People believe that more expensive means better.
