Today, I am reviewing my current moisturizer for winters, winters have not fully arrived but it is no longer hot here. And my skin has become combination from extremely oily. And I really like this one, it is perfect for winters. This is the second time I purchased it, I only buy it during winters and use it within that.
Olay Moisturizing Cream is the ideal choice for dehydrated skin and dry skin. Since your face might tend to become dry with frequent washing or bathing, it is necessary to moisturize often as it feeds your skin and prevents it from ageing. It moisturizes skin for up to 12 hours. It significantly improves skin smoothness and helps reduce lines and wrinkles to leave your skin youthful looking and fresh.
Olay Moisturizing Cream should be applied on cleansed face, neck twice a day.

My skin type– Extremely oily in summers, combination in winters.
My Experience with Olay Moisturizing Cream:
I was always on search of that perfect moisturizer for my combination skin during winters, which does not make my skin oily but at the same time hydrates and moisturizes it and I finally found it. I have also used the lotion version, but I like this one better, even though it is cream-based it feels very light on skin. The cream is light pink colored and of thick consistency and very creamy, the smell and color resembles that of Johnson’s baby lotion. I just love the smell.
The packaging is a little unhygienic but then the cream is thick and would not come out of a bottle easily so that is okay. The cream gets absorbed in my skin in a jiffy that is the reason I always comeback to this one as some other moisturizers take so long to get absorbed in my skin. There is no greasy after feel at all. And the claims of lasting 12 hours are probably true, because it definitely last for 8-9 hours after which I wash my face. I use it in the morning as well as night. I wish it had SPF. After applying it my skin instantly looks plump and hydrated and therefore glows. But I do doubt whether it will fulfill the needs of people with extremely dry skin. I also sometimes use it during the summers but only at night. Dry skin beauties will definitely need more moisturisation, but this is perfect for combination or normal skin and also for oily skin but during winters. The quantity provided is great, one jar lasts me for around 2-3 months as very little is required. After using it my T –zone does not get very oily and shiny though out the day.
