Sadly this is awful. Its super greasy, smells odd, the packaging in theory is very nice but mine was all 'smudged' together instead of the nice helix shape on the packet. Its just one big no from me.

I rarely need to use powder all over my face in winter when I choose to do minimal makeup. I'm usually dry enough to get away without anything bar my moisturiser and a touchof powder on my T-Zone, a lick of concealer and a coat or two of mascara. I was hoping that this product would prevent me needing concealer, and do a good job of hydrating.

Well yesterday I chose to wear this for the 2nd time, and I looked horrendous. I havent been that shiny since I worked under hot lights in a department store for 10+ hours and was wearing all the wrong products and powders.

*Sigh*

Its already made its way to the bin.

I had already purchased this prior to reading all the reviews. They had it for $10 (Australian) in Aldi when it is usually about $30 everywhere else. Then I read the reviews...... How bad could it really be? As it turns out, pretty bad! I definitely did not have any skin reaction. No redness or itching that many people are claiming. If anything, it felt pretty nice on my skin. I applied this on clean skin using my Beauty Blender. I could see as soon as I started applying it that it was quite greasy looking. Really, really sheer and very, very oily. It did not do anything for my skin in the way of moisturising or making me look any better. It was just an oil slick. I could not wait to remove my makeup in the evening and this went straight in to the rubbish bin. How they get away with charging over $30 in Australia for this just astounds me! Even $10 was way too much!

I look like I passed out hung-over in the sun and I have somewhere important to be tonight

Pros:
It's garbage day tomorrow

Don't bother with this stuff! It looked okay on, but not worth the pseudo sunburn

Despite the questionable reviews, I decided to try this last summer when I was going on a three-week vacation and wanted to travel as light as possible. As this is a moisturizer and foundation in one, it took up less space in my luggage than my usual skin care products. I have sensitive skin, but this did not cause burning or any kind of rash. I bought the light-medium, as the light was way too pale for me. The light-medium is slightly darker than my skin tone, and it gives a slightly tanned look to my face. It's fast and easy in the morning, just wash your face and apply this. The trick is to use it like a moisturizer, not a foundation. Gently massage it into your skin for as long as it takes for it to absorb. I tried applying it with a sponge once, and it sat on my face and looked greasy. Be careful about getting it on your neck, as the color rubs off easily on clothing. I would buy it again to take on vacation, and to use on days when I'm in a hurry.

The little swirls of serum, lotion, and color are so pretty and look like they should work miracles. Many people rave about olay anti aging products. I got this on sale for 12 bucks. The color looked good. Blended well. Great. I love tinted moisturizer and this stuff has anti aging serums. Five minutes later my face started to itch and turn red. I needed an otc steroid cream to calm down the face. Lesson learned. Don't be fooled by the fancy swirls.

This is the worst cream I have ever put on my face! It turned my skin SO red! After I would take this off, my face was so inflamed. My skin was the color of a lobster and that is no exaggeration. And it would last for two days after! My friend even tried it and 5 min later her face was feeling irritated and turning red. Save your money and your skin. Its almost $20 a bottle! Thats expensive for a drug store cc cream. Its not even a foundation! The smell is also terrible. I threw this in the trash and I would never recommend or repurchase.

I wish I had looked up reviews prior to buying this. I had a really bad reaction to this product and it looked like I had terrible sunburn and had to stay indoors for a couple of days because I didn't want anyone to see my face. Also felt like a real hot chemical burn, quite painful and took about a week to heal. I was really outraged to read that so many others have had this same reaction

WARNING!!!! This caused serious Atopic Dermatitis on my face!!!! It started within hours of using it. I had a very bad RED ITCHY rash all over my face and neck where I had applied the product. I had to go see my dermatologist and I took the makeup with me. She looked over the ingredients and told me to call/write the manufacturer and to stop use immediately. I have NEVER broken out with any product in my life before so this stuff must be extremely toxic. After reading the "mouse print" on the back of the box that this CC cream came in, it read....If rash develops see a Doctor. Geesh!!! This should be in LARGE PRINT OLAY!!!! Your product cost me $125 office visit and consultation with my doctor, and the price of a prescription of topical cortisone cream. Took a week to resolve....THANKS A LOT!!!!

BURNING! My skin is still red and burning two days after using this product. I phoned Olay who wanted me to take a customer survey in return for more Olay products. All I wanted was a solution to stop the burning but the woman on the phone told me to see a doctor..!

If you Google this product you'll find plenty of reviews from customers who've had this same adverse reaction. Olay does nothing to help and won't stop selling it. I've never had a bad reaction to any kind of skincare before.

Add me to the list of people who had a bad reaction to this. I used a sample packet; the finish was minimal but pretty. When I washed my face at the end of the day I had several areas of painful, red welts. Would not repurchase.
