This is a day moisturiser – without SPF. I like my SPF, so I knew this product wouldn’t become a favourite. But I wanted to give it a try nonetheless.
Now what did I find? This product is the exact same thing as Olay’s Instant Hydration + Wrinkle Blur!
I should have known! The packaging is almost identical, and the only differences are the colour of the box and bottles (blue/white and pink/white, respectively) and the name (wrinkle smoother and wrinkle blur).
Everything else is the same! So I can only come to the same conclusions as last time – when I used the pink sister product. 🙂
OK, once applied, this moisturiser sinks right into my skin and leaves it looking matte and silky. It’s great under make-up and yes, it does have an instant blurring effect on wrinkles and lines!
Because of the non-greasy formula and the matte finish, this moisturiser would be great for women with oily skin. But at the same time it doubles as a primer for women with dry skin. This moisturiser has primer-like qualities, yet – unlike most ‘real’ primers – it’s not drying at all. So if you want a primer that doesn’t feel like it’s sucking the moisture out of your skin, this product is for you.
Another thing I love about this Olay moisturiser is its fresh and pure scent which I would describe as a mix of water lilies and apples.
But there’s one bit that I’m not super happy with – this moisturiser is SPF-free. I love my sunscreen, but if you prefer SPF-free face creams and moisturisers, this one is definitely worth a try.
Olay Anti-Wrinkle Instant Hydration & Wrinkle Smoother is available as 50 ml for £9.99. But it’s currently half price at Boots and Superdrug- so it’s £4.99 only!
