      An okay moisturiser, but not worth the full price

      I have decided that I need to use up all my old lotions and potions before I buy more. I have a drawer that I tend to throw the items that I don't really use into and when I was sorting through it, I discovered this moisturiser that I had bought a few months ago but never really used, as I didn't like the texture and consistency of the moisturiser. Though having recently finished the serum that I previously reviewed, I thought I'd give this another go as I didn't want to throw it out, since it cost me so much.

      I found that I had more success with this moisturiser if I squeezed it onto my hand first and then let it melt slightly before applying it to my face. The moisturiser has a pump which seemed to dispense exactly what I need, so there is no wastage.

      Olay moisurisers promise to help reduce the seven signs of aging as follows:
      To visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
      To intensively hydrates the skin
      Balances colour & visibly evens skin tone
      Gentle exfoliation to smooth and even skin texture
      Minimises the appearance of pores
      Leave you with a radiant, healthy glow
      Spot minimisation to reduces the appearance of age spots

      I am lucky in that I have fairly tanned skin naturally, and rather than leaving me looking like I've used fake tan, I just look like I have a healthy glow. I have very oily skin, and while this doesn't help combat the oiliness, it doesn't add to my skin problems either. I can't really comment on the anti-aging properties of this moisturiser, as I only have a few fine lines around my eyes (would be nice to keep it that way, but I am suspicious about anti-aging products in general and don't believe in the claims that they stop/reduce wrinkles). It also has an SPF of 15, which can also help reduce sun damage, which can age skin.

      It's important to exfoliate regularly if you are using this moisturiser and always wash your hands after using it (unless you want orange palms!), so I'm not sure why it says there is an exfoliating effect in the moisturiser, but that's just me.

      My only criticisms of this are the smell and the cost. It's not the nicest smelling moisturiser (probably due to the fake tan element of the moisturiser) and I think it is quite expensive for what it is.

      I would recommend this if you are looking for a dual purpose moisturiser, and don't mind spending a few quid on one. I don't think I would buy this again personally, as I feel it isn't worth the money, but for anyone who normally spends around £20 on a moisturiser, this could be worth a try. Normal RRP for this is around £15, but at time of writing, it is on offer in Boots, same price as mine cost me from Tesco, so it's worth shopping around for offers.
