Oh winter months had been very brutal to my skin. My facial skin is drier than ever and is actually flaking on some areas and it needs a hardworking/ heavy duty moisturizer. One moisturizer I tried and will be sharing a review about with you today is the Olay Fresh Effects Long Live Moisture Satin Finish Lotion.
On Olay Fresh Effects Long Live Moisture Satin Finish Lotion Label
Fresh and Feather-Light
Our exciting satin finish formula gives you all the rich hydration of a lotion but with the lightweight feel of a gel. So lose the shine and get satiny active moisturizers keeping your skin soft and smooth up to 24 hours.
Directions: Is it a Lotion? Is it a Gel?
It’s the best of both, so just smooth onto your face and neck every day for softer, smoother skin. Avoid direct contact with the eyes.

My Take on Olay Fresh Effects Long Live Moisture Satin Finish Lotion
Olay Fresh Effects Long Live Moisture Satin Finish Lotion comes in a simple white pump bottle. Its label looks fresh and youthful. Each bottle has 50ml of product in it which is a lot. I got this bottle included an Olay promo pack I bought. The pack includes a small Olay Fresh Effects Face Wash and small electric face scrubber/ massager. The pack which has all 3 items, I bought for $10 after discount.
The product itself is pearly, white and pinkish in color and it has this beautiful fresh floral scent. I think it is pretty close or almost the same to the scent of other Olay moisturizers. I love how efficient the pump is and it dispenses just enough or small amount of product at each pump. Pump makes it easy to use and not messy at all. The lotion itself is less creamy compared to Total Effects and to Age Defying Olay variants. This Fresh Effects lotion spreads so easily and spreads thin. It has slick to it and feels like I am applying primer on my face. I checked the ingredients list and found Dimethicone in it. It must be causing the slick. It dries and sets fast. In 15 seconds, I feel I am ready to put on foundation. When I feel my skin after applying this lotion, it feels like I have nothing on my face but it is significantly smoother to touch and softer as well. It gives this nice shine on face, not the oily type of shine.
I feel that it makes makeup application easier as my foundation glides more smoothly on my skin whenever I use this. My matte foundations give me satin finish with this Olay lotion underneath and I find it so nice actually. This does not cause allergies or irritations. It alleviates dryness on my face better than Olay Age Defying Lotion I’ve been using for a long time. My face is still dry but I felt it has improved a bit when I started using Olay Fresh Effects Satin Lotion. It also noticed how it is good at controlling my oil production. Again, I find Olay Fresh Effects better than Olay Age Defying Lotion in oil control. Like, I oil up a bit after 5 hours with Fresh Effects and 3 hours with Age Defying.
What I Like- Olay Fresh Effects Long Live Moisture Satin Finish Lotion:
-Gives satiny finish
-Good oil control properties
-Acts as primer. It holds makeup longer
-Does not cause irritations or breakouts
What I Don’t Like- Olay Fresh Effects Long Live Moisture Satin Finish Lotion
-I wish for more moisture. I just need more.
Final Thoughts: I do think that this is better to use in Summer. I just need something more hardworking when it comes to giving moisture to my face during the Winter. I’ll say my skin condition is extra dry. I recommend this product to ladies with a bit dry to normal to oily skin.
