After using the whole jar of this Olay product, I believe that it lives up to its promise to improve firmness and generally improve your skin. It has some stellar ingredients in it (niacinimide, amino peptides) that are great anti-agers and I am thrilled that there is a fragrance free version.

The new version is more moisturizing than the original.

I've been using this product for a couple weeks now, but just at night. The reason being, the second ingredient is Dimethicone (which is a silicone) so active ingredients in most sunscreens will not be effective over this product and will not protect your skin during the day - UNLESS it is a physical one sunscreen (Titanium Dioxide or Zinc).

As a night serum, I have not noticed …

Sorry, this is a bust when it come to hydration. I bought is to put over serums at night and it does absolutely nothing for my dry skin. It has no anti-aging properties and does not perform well on its own and even worse over another product. The scent is annoying and makes my skin itch. Try Hada Labo for a similar and much more effective product and with no scent.

I thought this would work for dry skin and look luminous, but it actually just looks dry and cakey even over moisturizer. I was attracted to the fact it had a mineral sunscreen (Titanium dioxide). Funny thing that no one has mentioned this benefit. It's actually a major plus if you are trying to ramp up your SPF. Putting a chemical sunscreen over moisturizer is useless. If you have …Read more

This just does not cut it for dry skin. It does nothing to plump or moisturize my dry winter skin. In fact it dries down matte which only makes lines worse...and I only have faint lines. Smells nice and has sunscreen and that's about it for me. Vitamin C comes in better forms than this moisturizer if you're going for that.

Moisturizers - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Extra Virgin Olive Oil

For years I have had the same routine when I wake up in the morning. I do a quick water rinse/splash and then go to the kitchen and pour a little olive oil in my palm and rub it in to my cheeks or wherever else I'm dry. It doesn't matter what I put on at night, I usually wake up with dry skin. Nothing, and I mean nothing, soaks in and moisturizes like Olive Oil. It feels so good and …Read more

I was really surprised how much I disliked this product. If you have dry skin like me, it just makes it worse. I'm not sure what ingredient mattifies your skin, but for older gals (particularly with drier skin) we like the dewy look. This is an all mineral sunscreen and so I thought great, I can put this over a good moisturizer and be both moisturized and protected. Wrong. It will suck …Read more

I'll make this short. I could never use a powder type make-up on my dry skin before I tried this product. I love the ease of it and the ability to throw it in your purse for touch ups. You can't do that with a foundation. It also looks great as the day goes on and never changes colors.

Now this is kind of weird...I live in Canada part of the year and the color Classic …

I haven't used a maybelline mascara for years and I tried this on a whim. I was pleasantly surprised. Nice, thick lashes in one coat without much clumping. Good black pigment too. I actually think it was much better than this Lancome GWP that I got. Also, I think it kind of lengthened my lashes too, even though it is just a volume mascara. Made my lashes and eyes sexy. That's what …Read more

If you like a natural, glowy, dewy look -this might be the product for you. I use the Very Fair and it lets my skin tone come through and definitely stays dewy throughout the day. If you are trying to hide brown spots, this does not have good coverage, but will just sort of even things out a little.

Here's my gripe however. If you have dry skin, like me, you still need a …
