Ever since I can remember there has been a bottle of Olay next to the sink in the bathroom at my parents. I can even remember that my mum used to actually have Oil of Ulay. As soon as I hit my teens I began to borrow some of the fluid every now and then and it soon came a regular fixture in my skincare regime and I would get my own bottle. The olay range has expanded drastically over the last fifteen years and you can now get a range of facial creams, cleansers, washes and even bath products. The Olay product I use most often is the traditional beauty fluid but sometimes I do buy other facial creams from the range.
The beauty fluid is a daytime cream for the face. It is used primarily to aid moisturisation and elasticity of the skin. It comes in a small square shaped bottle which is white in colour with a black screw on lid. The bottle comes in a white cardboard box which makes it look like it is of a high quality. I remember when I was younger my mum used to pay around £10 for this which was quite expensive so we often used to get it for her at Christmas or for her birthday. She usually went for the bigger 200ml sized bottle. Today I tend to go for either the 100ml or 200ml size depending on any offers and how much spare cash i have.
It is important to recognised that it is a fluid rather than a cream therefore it is thinner than a cream and runnier. I would say it is a little thinner than custard and it flows with ease. There is a small hole at the top of the bottle to help you to get the right amount and I find this really helpful.
The fluid is white in colour and has a fresh clean odour. I find I do not need much of this fluid at all. To apply to my face I usually use fluid which is around the size of a 5p piece. The fluid is absorbed by the skin really quickly which I really love because I hate waiting around for cream to soak in. By the time you have finished applying this then where you began applying for it will be dry.
I do suffer with dry skin on my forehead and this beauty fluid copes with this amazingly well. If I have flaky skin applying a thin layer of this will leave me with nourished skin without any flakes which is essential for when I apply foundation.
I am really pleased with how well this looks after my skin. Even if I only use this once a week I can still see results and my skin feels nourished and strong. It also looks brighter and more evenly toned which is fantastic for me asking do suffer with dull skin and blemishes.
The bottle lasts forever because a little bit of this really does go a long way. It is caring and nourishing and for the price I think it provides excellent value for money. Currently the 200ml bottle of this is priced at just £5.49@ in Boots which is an exceptional price for such a good product.
