I have a combination skin. I used to be very careless about my skin. But with the recent treks I have been to, I felt like my skin has become dull and looked lifeless. This was bought to my notice by my mom and that is when my hunt for a mositursing cream began.
Olay is a good brand and it appears to be promising so I thought of giving it a try. Today I will be reviewing the moisturizing cream from Olay. Read the review to know more about this product.

What Olay Moisturizing Lotion Claims:
Olay moisturizing lotion replenishes normal/combination skin. This lotion is formulated with ingredients to help restore and maintain firm youthful looking skin. Its formula contains fluids so similar to the natural fluids in young skin that skin readily claims as its own.
Quickly and greaselessly replenishes essential moisture. In laboratory testing, Olay Moisturizing Lotion has been shown significantly to boost skin hydration, increase skin suppleness and firmness, improve skin smoothness.
So after doing a fair amount of research I thought of settling for this cream. I have been using it for over a month now and I think it’s the right time to review it.
This cream comes in a plain white bottle from Olay. The words “Olay” is written in the front. There is nothing fancy about the bottle. I really liked the packaging; I think its quiet classy. It has a black cap and you need to twist it to open. The bottle has a small hole in the top to dispense the product. The overall packaging is good and it’s easy to carry around. I did not face any sort of leakage during travel.
The lotion is white in color and has a mild floral fragrance. The smell is not at all disturbing so all the sensitive noses can relax. The consistency of the product is not very thick. It’s a prefect lotions and it’s easy to apply and spread. The product gets absorbed easily into the skin. You don’t need to apply massages or anything for the product to get absorbed into the skin.
The product doesn’t leave any greasiness. It makes my skin feel hydrated and moist yet doesn’t give any oily feeling. The rashes which usually appear on my skin due to sun have completely disappeared. I think this is a very good product for oily to combination skin. Dry skinned people might need something more intense. As far as the claims go I did not see any firming of the skin. Surely my skin is more supple and soft but I don’t think this helps in skin firing.
