i hate this product with a vengence. I got it as a sample in a recent Sephora order and while it is a generous sized sample, its such a poorly performing product that i think Boscia weren't doing anyone any favours with this. 1) peeling gels are a gimmick, its not your skin thats falling balls, its the chemicals in the product reacting with water and forming balls. 2) this stuff forms …Read more

24 hour coverage, not in hot and humid weather where you are sweating. More like 24 minute coverage in hot humid climates. I have normal to dry skin, this gives a nice medium coverage when I put it on nice finish. Then I walk outside and it’s hot and it’s humid and it’s sweaty weather and ‘bing’ I’m barefaced. I’m going to finish up this bottle because it’s a summer shade and won’t be …Read more

I'm opening my second container of this tomorrow. My skin wants to be dry, but i look after it and it doesn't get dry patches, but it is ageing and it does tend to dry. This is a cheap and cheeful primer. I apply it after sunscreen (waiting about 10 mins for sunscreen to apply) then I do my eye makeup. Once my eye makeup is done, this product has settled into the skin and set. Then …Read more

just finished a jar of this and I like it. The great thing about Olay products is that they are always on special somewhere so if you hunt around you can get them quite cheap. I have aging dry skin, i need a moisturiser that is a little more emollient to keep it looking good. I like built in sunscreen as that helps me in the Queensland sun. I found that this worked well under make up …Read more

I have dry skin, ageing skin. I purchased this for nostalgic reasons, when i was younger and my skin was oilier i loved clay masks to exfoliate and draw out the dirt and impurities in my skin, my skin always felt nicer if i used a mask like this once a week. Fast forward to my late 40s and my skin is drying and these days i use chemical exfoliates with great results. Purchased this product …Read more

I'm going to go against the grain and state that I'm not a fan of this product. I have aging dry skin, i have sun damage and wrinkles and i rarely get breakouts. This product really just did nothing for me. It leaves a greasy residue that takes a little while to soak into my skin and I didn't notice any difference before and after using it. I use other serums from The Ordinary …Read more

I've used up my jar of this, i used it as my daytime moisturiser with sunscreen applied after it set on the daily. I have dry skin, and because of my age, my issues are eye wrinkles, drying skin and sun damage.

It did the job, it moisturised my skin and my skin remained hydrated throughout the day.

My issue was the texture/formula. Its lightweight, and it needs time …

i'm pretty sure i got this in a sample bag, so i got a full size as a gwp. I'm not that impressed by it. It took forever to soak eye make off and it was terrible with mascara. I don't use waterproof mascara's, so it shouldn't be as hard as this stuff makes it. Those halo rounds do a better make up removal job than this stuff does.

What its good for, after …

I’veq just finished my bottle of this. I’ve used it daily in my morning routine. It played nice with a variety of moisturisers and sunscreens. It’s a dark liquid that goes on clear, feels nice on the skin, used it under the moisturiser and sunscreen.

My skin has looked great while I have been using it. It’s clear, it has a radiance. I am approaching menopause, my skin is normal …

I like this, yes its a little gritty when you first apply it, but put your moisturiser over the top of it and the grittiness goes away and its fine. I've been using this every 4th night for the past 6 months and am really happy with how my skin looks. I introduced a few products from The Ordinary into my skincare routine, I'm all about the affordable skincare products and this stuff …Read more
