Hi there! Today’s post is about the moisturiser that I’ve been using since the end of July – Olay Essentials Complete Care Multiradiance Moisturising Lotion.
This product contains vitamins B3, E and pro-vitamin B5, and it promises 24-hour hydration, protection from sun exposure (SPF 15) and more radiant looking skin.
I’ve been using this moisturiser for quite some time now, and I think it’s awesome! It makes my skin feel soft and well hydrated, and it’s a perfect base for make-up. I also love the light-reflecting particles in this moisturiser because they really give my skin a healthy looking glow! Another thing I love about this moisturier is its subtle & sunny mandarin fragrance – to me it smells like a sunrise in Palermo.
I would recommend this moisturiser to everyone! Olay Essentials Complete Care Multiradiance Moisturising Lotion is available as 75ml for £10. I paid £4.50 (better than half price offer, Asda).

Hi there! Today’s post is about my current moisturiser – Olay Regenerist Regenerating UV Lotion. This product claims to exfoliate, smooth and brighten skin, to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, to regenerate cells in the skin’s outer layer and to protect skin from the sun.
In summary, this product promises quite a lot! But does it keep its promises? YES, it does! I’ve been using it for three weeks now and I’m blown away. If you’d like to know more, then read on. 🙂
When I started using this product, I was aware that it’s a lot more powerful than Olay’s Complete range. So I was careful when I applied it around my eyes. But I shouldn’t have worried because everything was and is fine. No stinging or burning, no redness, no irritation. Perfect!
I love the formula of this moisturiser. It’s light and non-greasy, it sits perfectly under my make-up, and it feels amazing. It makes my skin feel smooth and soft. And thanks to this product I understand what an exfoliating moisturiser does! I don’t understand the ‘how’ though. 🙂
Another thing I want to mention is that, with this product, I can feel a gentle firming / lifting sensation on my skin. It starts about 10 to 20 minutes after I’ve applied the product and it stays for several hours – almost an entire day. But it’s not like something’s pulling my skin. It’s a very pleasant sensation!
Based on my experience using this product for the past three weeks I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it. I’ve got sensitive and dry skin, and I’m a long-term eczema sufferer, but this moisturiser didn’t give me any trouble at all. I will definitely buy this moisturiser again!
Olay Regenerist Regenerating UV Lotion is available as 75ml bottle for £21.99. The drugstores and supermarkets run promotions all the time. I only paid £9.99 for my bottle!

Hi there! I’m still working my way through Olay’s beauty assortment. Whilst I have found my favourite moisturiser, I can’t stop trying all of Olay’s offerings. 🙂 So for the past week I have used Olay Anti-Wrinkle Nature Fusion Anti-Ageing Day Fluid (What a name!) and I’m ready to review the product.
Let me tell you right away that this moisturiser is nice enough, but it will not become one of my beauty staples. My husband seems to like it though! If you read on, I’ll tell you why it’s not perfect for me, but why my husband is quite fond of it.
This Olay Nature Fusion Day Fluid is a light moisturiser with SPF. I think it’s great for summer because it doesn’t clog pores, and it will please ladies with normal or oily skin because the formula is not too rich. The clean and green scent highlights the ‘nature’ theme of this product.
However, I’ve got dry skin and I think this day fluid is simply not enough for my skin-type. I also prefer ‘yellow’ scents, so the leafy green scent of this moisturiser is not my favourite. Whilst I won’t be buying this product for myself again, my husband likes to use it on his face because…
… he has rather oily skin and this moisturiser is perfect for him because it doesn’t give his face an oily shine. He also likes the green scent because it’s rather unisex. And he is happy that this moisturiser contains SPF, so he doesn’t have to worry about the sun burning his pale skin.
In summary, this moisturiser is not for me, but I’m glad that my husband not only uses it because someone has to, but because he really likes the product. If you would like to try Olay Anti-Wrinkle Nature Fusion Anti-Ageing Day Fluid, the 100 ml bottle is £10, but there is always a half price or BOGOF offer somewhere.

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.
