Skin Care Review: Olay Age Defying Protective Renewal Lotion

by Sandy, VA


Good moisturizer, not oily, absorbs well, skin seems smoother

Expensive, spf is only 15 which is low for a face cream

I am a woman in my fifties. My skin is normal, not oily or dry. After reading about the properties of the alpha and beta hydroxy products I found this one made by Olay which contains Beta Hydroxy Complex. When put on clean, dry skin it absorbs well. If the skin is wet it just seems to sit there forever. I have used this lotion for about 4 months and do see a favorable difference. My skin is smoother, tighter looking, without feeling tight or pulled. Fine lines around the mouth and eye areas have filled in. I think this lotion helps with an overall smooth look. I have used some products that end up making the face look puffy. This product moisturizes and blends without that puffiness. I have been pleased and will continue to use it. I do think that the Beta Hydroxy Complex does a better job with anti-aging than just Alpha Hydroxy.

Expensive but good product. Will continue to use.
