Not so "non-greasy"

I have oily skin and I'm outside a lot, especially since its summer, so I was super excited about the "oil free" and "fast absorbing non-greasy formula" statement on the box. The first day I used it, I noticed how instantly greasy it felt on my skin, but I wanted to remain optimistic. However, day 2 kinda sealed the deal about how much I don't like it: my skin is so greasy, it actually feels more oily (I've had it on for about 6 hours now and it feels like I just put it on).

No, I do not recommend this product.

Sun protection perfection!

I have used Olay products for many years and they have always been at the cutting edge of new anti aging ingredients which I love.This moisturiser feels light but full cover and has 30spf which is amazing for year round base protection.I would buy this for a friend!

it works

I'm a physician so I'm usually skeptical of all these skin care products and their claims (such as that something with a melon extract or some other stuff has some sort of magical anti-aging properties, etc.). This product actually works and made my skin look better than more expensive department-store skin creams. I like it because it doesn't feel heavy and it provides sun protection.

Yes, I recommend this product!


Oil of olsy

This is a great product. The lotion itself is over most budget. I used a coupon to make up for some of it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
