Olay Hydration & Cleansing 2 In 1 Cleanser & Moisturiser Duo

Hi there! Today’s product is about Olay’s Hydration & Cleansing 2 In 1 Cleanser & Moisturiser Duo with aloe vera and cucumber extracts.

This product promises effective cleansing by removing make-up and impurities. In addition, it claims to hydrate the skin.

How does it work? You can use the cleanser with a cotton wool pad, or you can massage it into your skin and then “polish it off” with a damp muslin cloth.

Apparently you can also use it as a moisturiser (it says so on the back).

So how’s the product? I like it. It dissolves and removes my make-up with ease. Whilst I’m not using this product as a moisturiser, I can feel that it’s hydrating, and I believe it has helped me stay on top of my dry patches this winter.

In summary, I think this cleanser is really nice. I would recommend it to everyone with normal to dry and / or sensitive skin.

Olay’s Hydration & Cleansing 2 In 1 Cleanser & Moisturiser Duo
is exclusive to Superdrug. The 200ml bottle is £2.99. I paid £1.48 (better than half price offer).

Olay Regenerist Luminous Skin Tone Perfecting Cream Moisturiser

Hi there! Today’s post is about Olay’s Regenerist Luminous Skin Tone Perfecting Cream Moisturiser which I’ve been using since early March. In summary, this face cream promises to brighten, exfoliate and smooth skin, to reduce the appearance of dark spots over time, and to regenerate the skin’s appearance for a healthy and luminous complexion. In addition, this face cream promises younger looking skin in two weeks! Now let me tell you more…

First of all, this cream doesn’t contain sunscreen, so I’m using it as a night cream only. And guess what, it’s a great night cream! I don’t think I look any younger than a month ago. However, for the past couple of weeks I’ve woken up to a fresh and well-rested looking face, which is as amazing as it is unusual because even though I have to get up at 5:30 every weekday now, I never go to bed before midnight…

So based on my experience I’m satisfied that this Olay moisturiser does quite a lot! Yes, it exfoliates, and it does make my skin feel smooth. And I have no doubt that it somehow regenerates my skin’s appearance because my skin does look fantastic now! Thank you, Olay!

I would definitely recommend Olay’s Regenerist Luminous Skin Tone Perfecting Cream Moisturiser. It’s £29.99 for 50ml, so it’s one of Olay’s most expensive products. However, I only paid £14.99 (half price offer). So don’t forget to compare prices! Oh, and I’ve already bought a back-up which, by the way, was only £9.99.

Have you tried this product? If so, what do you think? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Olay 2 In 1 Hydration + SPF 15 Lightweight Lotion

Hi there! I found this cute looking new Olay 2 In 1 Hydration + SPF Lightweight Lotion when I swung by my local Superdrug the other day. It was £2.95 only, so I bought it! I was really intrigued because the lotion looked like a combination of two of my favourite Olay products!

The bottle reminded me of Olay’s Complete Day Fluid (which has been my favourite moisturiser for about ten years). And the pink packaging made me think of Olay’s 2 In 1 Hydration + Radiant Glow moisturiser (which smells divine). Now let’s see what this product is really like!
Olay Pink SPF
This Lightweight Lotion is really lovely. The formula reminds me very much of Olay’s Complete Day Fluid (I checked the ingredients – it’s not the same, but similar!). This means you get tons of lightweight moisture.

Plus: This lotion doesn’t clog pores and it feels really nice on my skin. I can reapply this lotion every couple of hours if I want to (I moisturise like a maniac every Sunday!) and it doesn’t rub off. It’s also worth mentioning that this lotion contains SPF15 and it sits great under make-up. Excellent quality!

Scent-wise this lotion is a mix of Olay’s Complete Day Fluid and the original Olay Beauty Fluid. It’s a gorgeous, subtle and ‘happy’ scent which goes well with the pink theme of the product. I love it!

If you look for a light moisturiser with SPF, I would recommend this one without hesitating. Olay 2 In 1 Hydration + SPF Lightweight Lotion is exlusive to Superdrug. It’s available as 100ml for £5.99 (RRP). At the moment Superdrug has a BOGOF offer on selected Olay products.

Olay Complete Day Cream

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.
Olay Complete Care Day Cream 2
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.

Olay Anti-Wrinkle 2 in 1 Instant Hydration + Radiant Glow

Hi there! My quest to try as many Olay products as possible led me to this limited edition: Olay Anti-Wrinkle Instant Hydration + Radiant Glow. Let me tell you right away that this daily moisturiser is that good that I’ve already bought two backup bottles. 🙂
Olay Anti-Wrinkle Pink
Honestly, if it wasn’t a limited edition, this moisturiser would become a beauty staple. It has and does everything I could ask for: The formula is silky and non-sticky. It makes my dry skin feel soft all day long and it’s perfect under make-up. It has SPF 15 and its sweet mandarin scent is absolutely divine.

I strongly recommend this product if you look for a no-fuss daily moisturiser. Olay Anti-Wrinkle Instant Hydration + Radiant Glow is exclusive to Superdrug. It’s available as 75 ml and it’s currently on sale for £4.95 only!

Olay Anti-Wrinkle Nature Fusion Anti-Ageing Day Fluid

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.
Olay Nature Fusion
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.
