I have been using this product on and off for some time now and keep going back to it. I have purchased probably 3-4 jars now and have also tried the other products in this line, but this is my favorite.

My skin is either very dry or combination normal and dry, and in the summer I run into the issue of my skin being dry but many moisturizers being too heavy in the heat and humidity. I have found this product to be light enough for the weather while still being effective. On my most dry areas, it does require a few days to work, but once it does I am able to keep them controlled with this moisturizer and some regular exfoliation.

The consistency of this moisturizer is like a watered down lotion, and it is somewhat translucent and bluish though that does not translate on the skin. The lotion absorbs quickly into the skin and I do not find that it leaves a residue behind.

In terms of price, this is a little more expensive than your basic drugstore moisturizer (I have paid between $18-20) but it is much cheaper than high end products I have used in the past and it works well for me. I have found that this product works better for my skin than even the Neutrogena water gel for extra dry skin. I am very pleased with the results I have gotten from this prouct. ...read more

Love this product. I've used tons of moisturizers (keep in mind I'm only 20) and this was my favorite. My face tends to get dry from the makeup I wear and I don't like a heavy moisturizer because I go to sleep after I apply at night and it tends to get on my pillow. But not this one, it's so light and creamy and smells good. It absorbs into my skin super quick so I don't have to worry about my face staying wet. I wake up with hydrated skin and no cream on my pillow and that's what I like! Perfect light weight moisturizer that gets the job done and smells great. 5/5 worth the price, affordable. Can find it pretty much anywhere too! ...read more

This Olay moisturizer has been my best friend for several years now, and my skin always accepts it with open arms! I use the one labeled sensitive skin because it goes on smoothly and light and does not make my face feel loaded or heavy. It might just be my skin, but the ones for oily or dry skin feel gritty and pasty, I'm not a huge fan of those, but this one is PERFECT!

After I wash my face with an oatmeal scrub, I pat dry and apply this liberally all over my face and neck. Next, I let dry and continue to my make up routine which is pretty light and only consists of a foundation powder by Mac, a bronzer to contour my cheekbones, and some mascara. Yup, that's all I wear, and I look natural and clean :) Throughout the day my nose gets a little oily but that comes off with tissue paper - trick I learned from Tyra Banks herself, I'm sure there's a clip of that on YouTube.

Olay is the perfect base for everyday makeup, or no makeup, whatever you like to rock on any particular day! ...read more

In high school I found this in my sisters bathroom and asked to use it. I suffered from breakouts a lot in high school. Almost nothing but Mario bardescu (very expensive, I received a sample by mail to try) and Burt's and bees spot treatment worked on my face but I still had an uneven skin tone on my face. So when I tried aveeno's clear complexion moisturizer, I fell in love. It not only cleared my face but it also took away all the redness I usually had on my cheeks, nose and chin. I forgot about this product until a few weeks ago and ordered it off of Amazon and I got the same results after just one day of using it. No red or acne. I highly recommend this product if you want an evenly toned, acne free face. ...read more

Having extra sensitive skin has been a struggle my entire life. I could never find a face moisturizer that worked for running outside, had an SPF, and was not harsh on my fair skin. I have user so many products that failed me (Clean and Clear, Eucerin, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Shiseido, etc.). This is one of the only moisturizing products that provides broad-spectrum daily protection (which is why it is a white container) for your face.

I use this product twice daily because it has the best moisturizers out on the market. I apply one pump to my face and one pump to my neck twice a day. It costs around $13.00, but it was voted one of the top moisturizers by professionals. And it is my favorite product. It is so gentle and I see results already; I no longer see dry, patchy lumps on my face. It works great on my eyelids / upper brows (I get dry skin there too). It does not have fragrance, which would irritate your skin. It does not leave behind a residue of any sort; your skin will absorb it almost instantly.

I love the packaging because it is great for traveling (the pump locks in place). It is in a white container, so that ingredients that are light sensitive are not denatured.

Overall, I will be buying this product for years to come.
I have fair, dry, sensitive, skin and use a Cerave face cleanser also. ...read more

As a woman with skin that always seems to be several different colors, I was incredibly interested in trying Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Brightening Moisturizer. It goes on a little white, but that's just because of the sunscreen. It goes on smoothly and blends quickly. And best of all, there is no filmy or greasy feeling left behind!
After using this product regularly over the course of a few days, I definitely began to notice a difference in my skin. The dark spots were fading, and my skin was starting to all look like one shade, not 3 or 4 different colors. It kept my skin feeling moisturized throughout my day, even through the dryness of the winter air. I will keep using this product and will recommend to anyone I know. ...read more
