Hi there! If you read my last beauty haul post, you know I bought a beautiful Olay gift set with a compact mirror and a full size 50 ml Olay Compete Day Cream. I’ve said it before – I’m a total Olay nut. And it’s my mission in life to try all the Olay products out there. 🙂
I had this face cream before, but that was ages ago and quite some time before I fell in love with Olay’s Complete Day Fluid. So I had another look at Olay’s regular Complete Face Cream.
This face cream is for women with normal and dry skin. It has SPF15 which is great for those of us who don’t want to bother with ‘real’ sunscreen all the time. I’m very happy with how well this face cream moisturises my skin and how gentle it is. I’m not the most careful person and I already got the product in my eyes by accident on a few occasions, but it didn’t sting or burn at all. Great stuff!
Olay’s Complete face cream doesn’t clog my pores at all. My skin feels moisturised, but it can still breathe. It feels great on my skin. I love it! I also adore the light fragrance (the same one they use for the day fluid) which is sunny, yellow, youthful, pure and happy!
Whilst I still prefer the fluid formula, I will definitely buy this face cream again. I think it would be great to use it during the colder seasons when my skin is quite dry. Saying this, the cream is perfectly suitable for the warmer seasons – and if you’ve had it before, I’m sure you will agree.
Olay Complete Day Cream is available as 50 ml for about £10 – but there is always a half price or BOGOF offer somewhere. I think this is a great face cream and I would definitely recommend it.

Hi there! I often go to Poundland, Poundworld, Home Bargains and the likes. That’s because I find great stuff all the time. And I really want to show you what I came home with last week.
This beautiful gift set contains a full size Olay Complete Day Cream (50 ml) and an Olay mirror. As a true Olay girl I had to have it. The face cream alone is usually £10. Superdrug sells the face cream and mirror set for £10. But the same set is £4 only (special promotion) at Poundland if you spend at least £1 in store. Bargain!
I also got my hands on 3 Max Factor Glossfinity nail polishes. From left to right: 140 Cobalt Blue, 100 Candy Floss, and 175 Aqua Marine. MF Glossfinity polishes are usually £5.99 at the big drugstore chains. But I got these for £1 each from Poundland and Poundworld.
I was really please to find Max Factor Max Effect Mono Eye Shadows as well. The two shades I bought are 12 Mysterious Black and 07 Vibrant Mauve. Max Factor has launched new mono eyeshadows, so these ones are on the way out – but they’re still £4.99 each at Superdrug. Or £1 each at Poundland and Poundworld.
Up next are toiletries. I got Imperial Leather’s 500 ml (that’s 100% extra free!) Skin Kind body washes. The fragrances are (from left to right) Raspberry & Lime Blossom, Cotton Extract & Oat Milk, and Cucumber & Aloe Vera. They’re usually about £2.79 each – but Poundland sells them for £1 each.
I haven’t used any of these products yet, but the face cream, the shower gels and the eyeshadows are going to be used soon! I’ll let you know how I like all these products. 🙂

Hi there! Today I want to tell you why this moisturiser has been my favourite for almost ten years. Olay Essentials Complete Care Day Fluid is definitely one of the best (Maybe even THE best?) facial moisturisers you can buy for less than a fiver. It’s for normal and oily skin, but it works for my dry and sensitive skin too.
I love the formula – it’s a light fluid that is easily absorbed and therefore it’s a perfect base for make-up. It’s also not greasy, so it doesn’t clog pores. And if you’ve got a really-dry-skin-day, you can use it every couple of hours because it doesn’t build up on the skin – it sinks right in! I also love that it’s got SPF 15 which means that I don’t have to bother with ‘real’ sunscreen every time I leave the house on a sunny summer day.
And then there’s this gorgeous (yet subtle) scent that I have fallen in love with the first time I have used this fluid. I would describe this scent as youthful, clean, pure, fresh, yellow and sunny. Even now, years later, this wonderful scent still puts a smile on my face – every day. But wait, there’s more!
Olay Complete Care has taken care of lines and wrinkles which I’ve had since I was a teenager. I can’t tell you if it took six months, a year or longer for the lines to disappear, but it’s a fact that now, at the age of 33, I no longer have certain lines and wrinkles which I’ve had around 15 years ago.
To sum it up: I could rave about this product for hours and I cannot recommend it enough. I think Olay Complete Care day fluid is the perfect no-fuss facial moisturiser for all women between 13 and 113. If you haven’t already tried it, then you should give it a try now! 😉
Olay Essentials Complete Care Day Fluid is available as 100 ml and 200 ml. (I always buy the 200 ml bottle which lasts me for six months.) The 100 ml bottle retails for £6, the 200 ml bottle is yours for £10. However, there’s always a half price or buy one get one free offer at some drugstore or supermarket. This means the 100 ml bottle can be yours for £3, or you can buy the 200 ml bottle for £5.
If you think you would love to try it, but would prefer a moisturiser with more active anti-wrinkle properties, I recommend you try this Olay day lotion.
