      Try It!

      So after my mum going on at me about how I needed to look after my skin and how I need to stop frowning because I am going to get lines, I decided to invest in some of this cream. After using it a few nights on the trot I am already starting to see an improvement. I like the fact that Olay has been around for quite a long time so I trust that it is going to work miracles on me like it has to my mum who has been using the brand since she was 16 years old.

      This is the double action moisture cream and it is for use overnight. I have purchased the nourishing and regenerating sort which is typically for normal and dry skin as it provides such goodness to your skin. As I have been using this overnight for the past few days, I am starting to see an improvement with my face, I am now waking up to soft fresh skin instead of dry rough looking skin. If you use this at night and massage it into your face avoiding your eyes this will help to replace the moisture that is lost during the day which is brilliant.

      It is non greasy which is also another good factor because there is nothing worse sleeping with an oily face and also you would not want it to grease the pillow case! This cream comes in a 50ml pot and will last a long time as you only need a small amount on your face to avoid that greased up feeling. Olay is one of the best brands of cream around and this is definitely one of the top night moisturisers there are.

      Thanks for reading.

      Holly.

      Really good for face but also on peely skin from sun exposure

      I bought this cream only last week. I found it to be fantastic. The packaging is nice, simple to open with a screw top tub with one of those plastic disks covering the top of the cream. The cream itself is quite thick (a little like astral) but unlike many other night creams, it is not greasy at all. My skin absorbed it well and the smell of the cream is also very pleasant - quite fresh smelling (more expected from day cream which I found a nice change). I'm not sure of the usual price of this cream but I found it in the Nottingham pound shop store opposite gregs in the Nottingham Victoria Centre for a pound a pot! They also have the day cream equivalent in there. I would say that this size pot should last at least a month, maybe two and it can equally be used on other dry patches: having recently come back from holiday, I've also been using it on my peely-patches and its working a treat!

        Worth the money :)

        I stayed at my dad's recently and didn't take any face cream so ended up buying a day cream and a night cream as well as I suffer with dry skin mostly...

        My friend and I went into a B&M store and she spotted 'Olay Double Action Night Cream' for normal/combination cream for only £1.79 in a 50 ml plastic tube which was great for transporting.

        My mum uses Olay and swears by it so I figured that it couldn't hurt someone my age either, lol!

        The box was pink and said 'nourishing & regenerating' on the front with a big write up on the sides.

        Made by Procter & Gamble in Ireland, this stuff is fine to use once opened for up to a year...

        Olay say you can wake up to beautiful soft skin everyday by using this at night by pampering yourself by rubbing this into your face and neck every night.

        It is dermatologically tested and ph neutral and the write up says it will nourishes your skin during the night to help replace moisture lost in the day, then it gets technical talking about the skin's hydro-lipidic film.

        The cream says it's non greasy and easily absorbed and enhanced the skin's own moisture balance too...

        When I tried it was light and did absorb quickly. The only thing I would say is it needed two layers to feed my skin properly but it wasn't greasy at all.

        I think it did help moisturise my skin overnight as it didn't feel so tight, nor did I have a reaction of any kind.

        The tubes is dead handy to carry around and it wasn't expensive so I think this is worth four stars overall :)

          just try it - I think you will be converted

          I have used this product since the mid-80s when it was called Oil of Ulay! Occasionally I get tempted by some of the more expensive creams such as ROC, L'oreal, Nivea etc....but i always come back to the Oil Of Olay, it has by far the best effect on my skin. Both of the beauty therapists that I have used told me I had lovely soft skin.

          Things I like about the cream. You can buy it anywhere (including supermarkets where it is the cheapest), it is reasonably priced, I tend not to spend more than £5 on a pot and buy a couple when I find it discounted. I usually buy it in Superdrug but often or not in Sainsburys as that is where I shop regularly, so buy it when it is on special offer. The pot is light (good for travelling) and has 50ml in it, it lasts me between 2-3 months. The lightly pink cream is a lovely consistency, very light frarance and really easy to apply. Best of all is that I love the way it soaks into my skin and is not greasy in any shape. I have been known to use it during the day but try to use the double action for day cream during the day as it has an SPF of 15 in it. My skin is still soft in the morning.

          In fact it is really a good beauty product and I love using it. I have never had any problems with skin itching, spots or feeling, tight or burning (which I have had with other creams). Everyone I know tells me I look a lot younger for my age than I am and I have lovely skin. Overall one of my top buys and I am not going to bother to buy anymore night creams no matter what the ads tell me!

          A cracking good buy and excellent product.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          non greasy, soft skin, quickly absorbed, no allergy

          This cream is gorgeous - I started using it on return from holiday with my tan. I use it every morning AND night - it makes my skin beautifully soft and prolongs my tan from peeling!

          It easily packaged, a nice consistency and your skin really drinks it up and this means there is no greasiness left behind. I apply in the morning also under my makeup and it creates a fantastic base once soaked in after around 20 mins. Your skin and makeup stays fresh all day.

          I would certainly recommend this cream - I was given it as a Christmas present and will certainly be buying another tub when it has run out! It also suits all ages (i'm 27) and feel that if I continue to use this my skin will stay looking younger for longer.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Now that I’m in my 30s I like to look after my skin. I’ve always looked young for my age (or so those who like to flatter me say) but I’m well aware that I’m not getting any younger. In a desperate bid to preserve my youthful appearance I’m happy to admit that I have become an avid Olay fan. But my love of Olay products is not without good reason - they work for me and they are more pleasant to use than any many of their competitors. Pardon the plug, but this is not the first Olay product I’ve reviewed and it won’t be the last because I have plenty to say about them. So, in this review I’m going to start with Olay’s Night Cream. The product bumf on the Olay web-site claims that it moisturises and nourishes the skin during the night. Well, I’m not a dermatologist and so I can’t comment on how well nourished my skin is. In fact, I’m never entirely sure what is meant by “skin nourishment”. However, I can say that since I’ve been using this product I have lovely soft skin. Previously it was tending to be a bit dry around my nose and mouth in the mornings if I’d not used a cream the night before. The Olay web site also promises that the product will help to generate fresher and younger looking skin in the morning. Well, I’m not convinced that my skin looks any younger, but it certainly has an elasticity about it that I’m perfectly satisfied with. I’ve tried various night creams in the past – many of which produce equally supple and soft skin but night creams do tend to have their drawbacks. In particular, many of them tend to be a bit on the greasy side and don’t absorb easily. Well, Olay’s night cream is definitely not nearly as greasy as many of its competitors. It’s quite a heavy cream and not absorbed as quickly as many of the day-care products, but that is what you come to expect from a cream that works
          its magic over a period of several hours. It’s fragrance free too. That doesn’t bother me but it might be a consideration for other potential users. One thing that I do like about this product is that it is also taste free. No, I’ve not been eating the stuff out of the jar but I know from experience that a face smothered in night cream has the potential to act as a real passion killer. It’s not nice when a romantic moment is ruined by your partner asking what’s on your face because it tastes horrible. I’m not expert on beauty therapy so I’m not going to go into detail about the best way to apply the stuff. I just slap it on after my nightly bath and it seems to do the trick. The packaging is pretty standard but stylish. The cream comes in a small glass jar, which from memory I would estimate contains about 50 ml. I’m not 100% sure of the price. I guess if you bought it from a High Street shop it would probably be in the region of £7 to £8, which makes it quite expensive. However I buy mine from a discount toiletries retailer for £3.50 which makes it a very reasonable buy. A pot typically lasts me about two and a half months when used every day and so it’s good value if you can find it at a discounted price. I guess even at full price it’s not too bad a buy if you don’t mind spending a bit to look after your skin.
