After my bout of illness, in the past two weeks, my skin had become extremely dry and parched. I tried using the Shahnaz Husain Skin Balm/anti-ageing cream (will review it shortly), that I had bought for my mom, but it gave me acne ( I should seriously stop using products that I buy for my mom :headbang: :headbang: ). So, I thought of looking out for an effective yet lighter moisturizer. I was ordering a few healthcare equipments from an online healthcare website, and when I found this Olay Moisturizing Lotion while surfing, I ordered this along. This is a 30 ml pack to try out whether it would suit me.
Olay moisturizing lotion replenishes normal/combination skin (there it goes again :headbang: :headbang:). 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.
Directions For Use:
Smooth onto face and neck twice a day.
Rs. 99 for 30 ml.
My Take on Olay Moisturizing Lotion:
This moisturizing lotion is not the same as the Olay Total Effects moisturizer. This is a cute 30 ml bottle with a mildly fragrant, not-so-thick lotion. It gets quickly absorbed into the skin leaving a non-greasy yet hydrated skin. I don’t know whether the “non-greasy” feeling would still persist after my “dry skin” phase is over. Right now, this is working for my skin perfectly, keeps my skin well moisturized throughout without making it look dull. I even use it beneath the Maybelline BB cream and it works well.
I have worn it for quite a few days now and haven’t experienced any breakouts. By the way, the instructions at the pack say “for normal/combination skin,” I have neither normal skin nor any type of combined skin, I just have “bad skin” :((, and this moisturizer is kind of improving the texture of my skin. I am so glad I picked it up and I need to find a bigger sized pack of this, I am that happy 😛
Pros of Olay Moisturizing Lotion:
- Provides adequate moisturization without causing any greasiness of skin.
- Can be worn beneath foundation, BB cream, and other sort of makeup.
- Keeps skin well hydrated.
- Eases out dry and stretchy patches on the skin.
- Works well for oily skin because its not a heavy moisturizer.
- Available at a reasonable price and in a 30 ml pack.
Cons of Olay Moisturizing Lotion:
- Contains parabens.
- Does not contain SPF.
- Right now, my skin is in a “dry phase” and hence this moisturizer might be working well, I don’t know exactly how it would turn out when my skin returns back to its “oily self.”
Will I Repurchase Olay Moisturizing Lotion?
Yes, I would, this time I will try to find a bigger-sized version.
