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
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
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
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
