Olay Natural White Day Cream Review

by Sush on May 18, 2010 · 104 comments

After hearing great results with Olay products n watching the commercials, I began trusting the brand even more. So when I was shown a new set of Olay Natural White by the SA, I was a bit excited to try. I wasn’t too crazy about the whitening thing but hey, it’s Olay, so what do I have to lose? The Olay Natural White cream is meant to address hyper pigmentation of the skin while keeping it moisturized. Since I have heard a lot about Olay products, I figured I might as well try it. Its Price: 299/- for 50 gm(Indian rupees) Olay Natural White Night Cream Source Olay’s Natural White Range includes:

  • Natural White Day Cream,
  • Natural White Night and
  • Natural White Face Wash.

Olay Natural White Night Cream What P& G claims about Olay Natural White Night Cream? Olay Natural White Night Cream contains twice the mulberry leaf extract, which is proved to not only whiten your skin, but also optimizing its texture leaving your skin feeling feather soft. So wake up to fairer, smoother skin.

  • Nourishes skin from deep inside
  • 2X whitening effect
  • Intense moisturizing
  • Reveals skin health and radiance

The 3 step action of Olay Natural White Day Cream:

  1. Olay Natural White Nourish the skin with nutrients for healthy-looking natural fairness that glows. Its formula with triple nutrient system – Vitamin B3, pro-B5 & E nourishes the skin to reduce the appearance of dark spots and dullness for a healthy-looking natural fairness that glows
  2. Its SPF 24 protection effectively helps protect the skin against external damage from the sun*
  3. Its nutrients rich formula help replenishes your skin’s natural moisture level

Olay Natural White Night CreamRead what the skincare product’s brand ambassador, Katrina says: “I feel proud to be associated with Olay Natural White. Because of my hectic schedules and constant exposure to the sun and harmful UV rays, I’ve always been concerned about the damage done to my skin. I always wanted a glow that comes from within. I am convinced that for this, there is no other alternative.”

Learn about My experience about Olay Natural White Day Cream : I am having an oily face but thankfully I don’t have any problems with breakouts or too much pimples. I could have one or two but that’s not a problem for me. I just want to have a clear face, somewhat fairer but totally clear. Since I have some blemishes and dark spots, I believe that Olay Natural White may aid the problem and give me even quite noticeable result so I decided to give it a try. After four weeks of using the product, I found the followings:

How I apply: I use it twice a day on a clean face and neck Olay Natural White Night Cream Olay Natural White Night Cream Olay Natural White Night Cream Olay Natural White Night Cream Some of the good points about Olay Natural White Day Cream:

  • The packaging is cute. Although of no use after getting the bottle out. The bottle itself is very classy with a translucent base.
  • Could be easily carried in handbag.
  • The cream soothes out well when applied and doesn’t clump at all.
  • It’s light and silky with a mild soothing fragrance, which is very pleasant.
  • What I like the most about the cream is that it leaves the skin really soft and smooth.
  • It makes for a perfect base for applying makeup. I moisturize my face 10mins prior to makeup and the result is perfect. When in hurry I just dab a compact with a gloss and kajal and I m done….
  • As for the whitening effect, I did notice an improvement in my complexion after 3weeks of use.. Friends literally asked me about the secret behind it. Imagine a women complimenting another woman, —WOW A BIG ACHIEVEMENT!!!! NOTE: ** THE FOLLOWERS OF IMBB ARE EXCEPTIONAL**
  • It also aided to improve my skin tone and texture
  • Another plus point is the SPF-24 content. I don’t have to put an extra layer on top. Which I love the most.
  • Very little amount is required. Only a pea size amount is enough.
  • I am using this on daily basis for about 2 month but still some left to go for about 15 days more I guess.
  • I doesn’t contain bleaching agent.

Some of the bad points about Olay Natural White Day Cream:

  • Although the product claims it can be used by most skin types, I have a slight problem with the extra moisture. I have oily skin and when I put on the product, it not only felt greasy, it also made my face look greasy. But if you’re looking for a product that will drench you with it, this is the one to have.
  • If you are developing wrinkles or have maturing skin, this product will moisturize and whiten but not plump out those lines.
  • Also there is a waiting time, before u put up make up. You’ll have to wait about 3 minutes before you can put on foundation or pressed powder.

Other than these I couldn’t find any other drawbacks.

Do I recommend it? For people with oily skin like me, you’re better off using another product if you have huge issues with oiliness. Olay Natural White Cream is perfect for people with normal to dry skin and want a product that will moisturize, improve skin tone and fight hyper pigmentation.

Would I Repurchase? This product really worked for me but I am not much sure, only because of its moisture content. I would rather look for some other product.. I am eyeing NETROGENA FINE FAIRNESS CREAM..

My rating: :-* :-* :-*

Have you used Olay natural white????

Riddima May 18, 2010 at 8:31 pm

my best friend uses some olay products and they suit her quite well. I think i must start looking at them now. very nice review. :yes: :yes:


Mrunmayee May 18, 2010 at 11:55 pm

oh drench the skin??? 😀

I’ll take it… :-)) 😀


jomol May 19, 2010 at 9:44 am

I am in two minds now Sush…since there is no bleacing agent in the product, I am all for it, bt the oiliness…..mmmmm I have an oily skin…drenching…that would scare me away.


sush May 19, 2010 at 10:44 am

Ki: v safe indeed :-))
riddhima: thx :-)) try it out wil like it for sure
M: u a having a dry skin na.. den dis d product. it instantly mointurises the skin, with a glowing finnish. which i like it bt sad cant njoy it 4 long. bt u’ll nt have any promblem.. 😉
Jomol: if u dont have much promlem with the oilness den nothing to bother about. just dab a compact aft application & the result is perfect. :-))
n for the fairnes part, it does work… happy :laugh:


Anuya November 6, 2010 at 8:26 pm

hiya. Suggest you dont pick up the Neutrogena fine fairness cream – i used it and regret wasting money. It didn’t do anything to my complexion, added a weird whitish layer, was dam oily and didn’t smell good at all!


febin November 21, 2010 at 9:53 pm

Hi can you please give me the ingredient list.. thanks in advance


mayuri April 9, 2011 at 4:30 pm

i used ur natural white day creame(gel based)one month earlier.bt nw a days the quality of ur product has deterioted and it is nt as gud as it ws earlier coz nw a days the creame which is available in the market is purely a creame only and it is not at all gel based.neither it is helping in skin whitening…………just is this bcoz the demand has raised so the product quality is going down and down?


jazzmine April 6, 2012 at 8:15 pm

i totaly agree with you. :yes:


shweta May 19, 2010 at 11:18 am

Hi Sush,

Nice post…just confused why wld they add spf in a night cream? and also can a night cream be used as make up base ?


sush May 19, 2010 at 11:37 am

Hi shweta,

u got it right :mean: There a 2 versions of olay natural white. n wat i bought was a day creame which contains SPF 24. bt when i sent d post to rati i forgot to mention (day/night) may be it got confussed there…… :-))


tanveer May 19, 2010 at 11:45 am

Sounds effective. Actually maybe it is heavy on the moisturising part coz it is a night cream. Most night creams are heavier & greasier than day creams.


shweta May 19, 2010 at 11:50 am

Ok …Thanks shall try this one sometime.. 🙂


sush May 19, 2010 at 12:12 pm

Hi tanveer,

Let me clear up the confussion ,its a DY CREAME & not night. it some how got mis understood. :chic:
its not 2 much geasy nor 2 heavy , just right for dry to normal skin. unlike those matte finish fairness creames :-)) bt may add up a little oilness to oily skins :-))


tanveer May 20, 2010 at 12:05 pm

Oh Ok, actually the post title says “Olay Natural White Night Cream review” so.. ?:-)


tanveer May 20, 2010 at 2:17 pm

I see that u changed it now 😀 😀

Ok, confusion over 🙂


Ruby May 19, 2010 at 1:30 pm

that sounds really tempting…i want , but here all they have is tanning creams 🙁 nothing for fairness, i dont want to be fair i just want soemthing to remove my tan, from my last trip to India i got the Ponds flawless white range, havent properly strated using it…i should :S LOL! maybe after using it for 2 weeks ill send Rati a review ?
.-= Ruby´s last blog ..21 days till new habits form… =-.


sush May 19, 2010 at 1:53 pm

Hey Ruby,i guess it will help to clear up the tanning too coz the creame works on the epidermis (top layer of the skin), n this is where the tanning occurs…

waiting for the review :worship:


Poornima May 19, 2010 at 7:26 pm

Nice review Sush. I love Olay products and have also reviewed their cleanser in my blog.

Atleast there are some brands that deliver.


sush May 20, 2010 at 10:48 am

graysey August 21, 2010 at 8:36 pm

I’ve just tried Olay Natural White and I’m really liking it. I’m not really into the whole whitening thing – just looking for a good moisturizer for my oily skin. I like that it’s not greasy and glides on my skin so easily. I’m hoping Olay will be the moisturizer I’ll be using for keeps.


dolly October 1, 2010 at 7:41 pm

its good & its works perfectly. :-)) :-))


gagan October 5, 2010 at 9:28 am

Gopi October 28, 2010 at 4:56 pm

I have been using olay natural white for past 1 month,the cream hs good fragrance and the best part is its non-greasy.But other than tat i dont find any faireness happening…


surbhi November 2, 2010 at 11:50 am

i am in two minds….whether to use it or not…actually i have oilly skin…..what to do??


Chipu November 13, 2010 at 1:24 pm

Hi Sush, Thanks a bunch for doing this review..I was looking for a nice moisturizer plus lightening creme that suits my oily skin with some pores also..It has been three days since i started using this. First day it felt somewhat like odd..but i think because i havent used anything other than Clean and Clear lotion and sunscreen on my face for teh past five years. Used to be a fair and lovely fan long time ago..So maybe i was expecting taht same dryness effect but this cream is a little more moist..In three days my skin is so soft and i just keep touching it..It is the best cream taht i have used in years..And i love the SPF factor..Spreads easily, absorbs easily, mild fragrance..NOt a single breakout given that i have skin that cant be experimented with..
Oily skin gals..give it a try..it is really good..
Thanks to IMBB i have added a rosewater spray to my daily regimen plus greengram flour as facewash everyday and my skin has never felt so good in years.. 🙂


priya December 3, 2010 at 3:56 pm

ho reading all these reviews realy gave a detailed n clear version about olay natural white…

Hi Sush,

aber January 13, 2011 at 11:17 am

But then 2 weeks of using it, my skins begun to break out terribly and now, I havta deal with my acne scars! This Product was more of DELUDING than anything else.. I would never recommend it and in fact I’m scared to try any more whitening creams now! :pissedoff:

sheetal February 24, 2012 at 3:00 pm

it does play magic on r face…. but plzzzzzzzzzzz dont expect olay natural white to do miracle on ur face in 2 or 3 days…. use this product twice a day (morn n night) after claaning up ur face with a face wash, tone it up and apply olay natural white. u’ll definitely see difference after a week…. i have kinda oily skin and i do recommend this product as i’ve been a using this product for the past 6 years n i still feel its the best . i’ve used garnier light and ponds spotless white too… but olay is the best and does make ur skin smooth and brightr….


sunita March 21, 2012 at 12:21 am

i have oily skin can i use the olay whitenss cream


Sivadharsini April 4, 2012 at 11:42 am

Hey this is Sivadharsini.
I just started to use Olay natural White. My question is can i apply compact powder on that cream daily?


jomol April 4, 2012 at 11:44 am

Hi Sivadharsini….I think there should be no problem at all with applying compact powder over this……but make sure the compact powder is noncomedogenic O:)


jazzmine April 6, 2012 at 8:22 pm

it was good when they had it in black cap now the cap is changed to grey n lotion n cream both have lost their fairness effect and have become too oily. :waaa:


sheeba May 23, 2012 at 10:02 am

hi, i am sheeba

I Just started to use olay Natural white. Really Very Nice. Now my face is looking very good & Very Soft. i have dark face. i want fair. possible to fair in future. pls tell me. daily i used Himalaya face wash twice a day.


babyblue June 19, 2012 at 7:42 pm

Hi, im using olay for 2yrs already.. before im having lots of pimples on my face.. I tried different products but it doesn’t give me good result.. since i used olay, with the combination of ponds anti-bacterial facial wash it really gave a good result on my face.. pimple free and all of my dark spots were gone.. im using olay natural white day cream in the morning and after few minutes im also applying baby powder w/c is lewis and pearl, then applying as well my foundation with spf-24 as well.. it really prevents my face from uv.. now my face is pimple free, no dark spots, smooth and bright.. thanks to olay.. it really works for me even though im having oily skin.. =) thanks olay..


riddhi August 27, 2012 at 2:43 pm

Can some one please tell me is it5 non comedogenic and can it be used for sensitive skinned people like me? I have oily skin


Richa Katara May 2, 2014 at 11:56 pm

hey…i tried this cream after going through your reviews. I used the olay instant glow fairness cream (tube one) i dont know whether its different from the cream you have used since there is name difference.
I used it for 1 week and my skin is looking darker. I have a dry to normal skin…..can you please help to know if there is any difference between the two……because the results for me were pathetic.
