Skin Care Review: Olay Complete Daily Moisturizer

by Rosemina Mehrdady, MI usa


Not at all greasy, light, absorbs quickly; multifunctional and versatile.

May not be enough for overtly dry skin. Not really an "eye-area" moisturizer.

I know you are thinking just what I usually think: it can't be good if you buy it at the drugstore for ten bucks. However, this one product deserves special attention.

I've been using it since the first day I ever began "skincare", which was as a young teen age 14 when my mom took me to my first dermatologist visit. Back then, he recommended this Olay Complete as the best daily moisturizer for my adolescent oily and mildly acne-prone skin.

Ten years later, I find myself still returning to this moisturizer even after repeated instances where I "fell for" a well-hyped scientific-sounding MD-developed or Dept. store brand moisturizer. I've tried lots of different products in every price range imaginable, but they just end up as slightly used-up jars and bottles on my toilette; I consistently see that Olay does the best job and feels the best both in the morning and at the end of the day.

I've read all the molecular and cell biology research (I'm a medical student!) and tested out tons of different hypotheses in my quest for the perfect preventive skincare regimen that will provide a healthy basis for future skin. I consistently choose to include Olay Complete as my main moisturizer, and I think I'll keep using it for another few years.

Great all-around daily moisturizer if you have relatively normal/combination skin.
