Olay Daily Moisturizer Review

Hey beauties!

I recently made a trip to Target to pick up some facial moisturizer. My face has been really dry recently because of the weather transition from summer to fall/winter.

In Florida our summer months are very humid and muggy meaning there is more moisture in the air. I rarely use moisturizer during the summer because of the extra moisture (although I should.) However, I don't know if it's because I'm getting older or there is something different about the weather by my skin is EXTREMELY dry.

My face is just gross and you can tell I have really dry skin when I'm wearing makeup. It might be the makeup I'm using, I use Loreal Paris, but there isn't any "anti-pimple" magic in there which is the leading cause of my facial dryness most of the time so I'm stuck in a pickle.

Anyways, because of Thanksgiving here in America I got to see my cousin who is my age, 20, and she said she used the Olay Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 and that she loves it. Hence, my trip to Target.

I'm really picky about moisturizer because I have the type of skin that ranges between oily-normal-dry depending on the product I use.

I can't have moisturizers that feel heavy and take a long time to soak in because my skin becomes oily and it feels like I have a pound of makeup on. I also can't have moisturizers that apply like a dream but only moisturize for 20 minutes because I'll have to keep reapplying. 

That said, I am VERY pleased with this moisturizer. This is the first Olay product I've used because I thought Olay was only made for older women due to their plethora of anti-aging products. I was wrong obviously and I'm happy I was. 

The moisturizer is AMAZING because it feel so light weight yet it moisturizes AND it contains SPF 15 which I find is the lowest for most makeup but still nice protection. I also chose the sensitive skin because I tend to be allergic to the most random beauty products so it's always better to be safe than sorry in my book. 

The only thing I don't like about this moisturizer is that it doesn't come with a pump, but rather a..hole? A squeezy hole? I have no idea how you would identify this but that's why I put up a picture! 

I like my moisturizer to have pumps because I'm weird, but I feel like when you don't have a pump you can get the most out of your product because you can almost empty the bottle. Whereas, with a pump, you're limited to the product that the straw-thingy can reach which sometimes isn't a lot.  
Did that make any sense? Ugh. 

Anyways, I do HIGHLY recommend this product if you are like me and like a light-weight moisturizer that still gets the job done. I think this was around $15.00 USD for a 4 oz bottle. They have bigger bottles but I didn't want to purchase a large bottle if the product was crappy. 

Anyways, have a fabulous day!

  3. I've been using this for about a year and admit it is great, just not sure it it's doing anything amazing for my skin... I've started using Elizabeth Arden's day cream which is really great! However if I do have any problems I'd go straight back to this... like you said lightweight but effective!

    Great review and blog btw!


    1. Yes! So far my skin's been doing great with the Olay but sometimes my skin gets too used to one product so I have to switch it up. I definitely will check out the cream you recommended. Thanks!
