I love this moisturizer! Unfortunately, like all good things, it's been discontinued :( Luckily I picked up the last two on clearance at my store during the summer. It smells amazing, doesn't leave my skin greasy at all and it works great under my liquid foundation. A little bit goes a long way, I've been using it almost every day since I bought it in July and there's still more than half the container left, and I have another one for when it does run out. It is definitely more of a summer moisturizer though, so at night I'll use Ponds Cold Cream after washing my makeup off. If you can still find it at your local stores or online, then snatch it up!

I was looking for a new moisturizer to try that would be able to be found in the drugstore. My skin isn't acne prone, but it is oily. I found this moisturizer to be light, but since it is winter, I found that it didn't provide as much moisture as I hoped it would. Probably would've been a better summer moisturizer for me. The fragrance is pleasant, but that is also my complaint. Is it really necessary for moisturizers to have such a heavy fragrance? Most of the time it doesn't bother my skin, but occasionally it does cause irritation. I'll most likely switch to another moisturizer after this one, but it wasn't bad.

I love this moisturizer. I have oily, acne prone skin, but this moisturizer hydrates my skin well without looking oily. I only use this at night and it smells so good. It makes my skin look dewy and is reducing my breakouts, along with slowly fading my PIH (I have a mask to help me with fading them). I'm sad that Olay is discontinuing this product T_T I was just about to go buy some more until I saw online that it's being discontinued. Now I have to find a new moisturizer :l

I've been using this for about two weeks now, and I'm really enjoying how it's making my skin feel. I use it for the day under my sunscreen, and it's just enough moisturization - I don't feel dry or anything. A little goes a long way - I just need a dab or two otherwise my sunscreen pills up. Where I live the winters are usually dry and cold, and the summers are hot and humid. It's spring right now, so I've been using a very heavy moisturizer for night, and this one for day, and my skin is happy. I wouldn't use this in the winter as it would be too dry. In the summer I'd use this and a lighter night time moisturizer. I love the niacinamide (1-5% according to P&G's MSDS sheet) - I really feel as though it's helping reduce my blemishes. Seeing as it's got some other good ingredients that I look out for (panthenol, glycerine, allantoin, niacinamide) and that a tub will likely last me 4-6 months, I'd definitely repurchase.

This winter has been unusually harsh on my skin, and my other moisturizers just weren't cutting it. Usually I use Neutrogena moisturizers/sunscreen but this winter the wind was so brutal that I needed to find another moisturizer to layer under it. This one does the trick, absorbs quickly and does not irritate my skin. My skin was chapped around my nose area and was flaking a bit and this completely cured that in a few days.I wear this at night and on days that I stay home, and put it on underneath my sunscreen for days that I go out. The only thing this is missing is SPF, I wish it had some sun protection in it so that I could use one product instead of two.I would still repurchase as I haven't found a moisturizer with SPF that was moisturizing enough for winter. I don't have a problem with the product being in a tub. As long as your hands are clean before you go in to grab product, you should be fine. Plus, the tub is sturdy which is great because I DROP EVERYTHING.

I was craving a gel moisturizer for my often sensitive, occasionally reactive skin. I remembered years ago trying a sample of Nars Aqua Gel Luminous Oil Free Moisturizer and adoring it, however my current budget doesn't really allow for a $60 moisturizer, so I started researching more affordable options. I chose to try this Olay Dew Over first (I'm still considering the Garnier Gel Moisturizer and the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel) and while I can't say it is a dupe for the Nars, I do like it. It is a lovely gel-cream texture that absorbs nicely and hasn't bothered my sensitive skin. It plumps and hydrates my skin subtly without being at all greasy or heavy, which is what I was looking for. I have been using it pretty much daily, sometimes on its own and sometimes layering another moisturizer over it. The fragrance is pleasant to me - a light floral - but I could see where it could be a bit much for someone who's sensitive to fragrance.Overall, I am happy with this moisturizer for what it is and will probably repurchase when I run out.

ok I think I've been using this long enough now to write a fair review. I was looking for something cheaper to replace my clinique DDMG, which I still love and love that it doesn't break me out (the main thing I look for in a moisturizer). I have been using this for just over a month and I really like it! it absorbs into the skin fairly quickly and I don't find that it leaves me shiny, which the clinique one def leaves a shiny finish. it's perfect under makeup, doesn't break me out, cheaper than clinique. I will definitely be repurchasing when I run out!

I am oily and acne prone . Everything "cream " breaks me out . I have went through 2 containers now and no acne ! It's a great moisturizer . I use it under makeup and at night over my anti wrinkle serum. It is a gel and feels cool and refreshing with a light fragrance that is great ! I love this and will continue to use it . Especially because most Olay products break me out .

This smells amazing! I use it during the day under my make up as I have oily skin with some dry patches and gel does much better than a creamy substance.

I liked this product, I just feel like it has no purpose in my skincare routine. It leaves my skin glowing and matte, but it lacks. It doesn't have spf which I like in products for the day, and it isn't moisturizing enough for night. Also, the packaging sucks. I don't like products in a jar at all.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
