Olay Definity Deep Penetrating Anti-Ageing Foaming Moisturiser 50mls.
I first bought this Olay moisturiser while on holiday in Florida over 5 years ago. It had been launched in the UK only weeks before I went on holiday. The UK price was £26.99 for 50mls. I spotted it in Walmart in Florida for $14.99 this worked out to cost nealry 50% less than the UK price. I thought great find as I really wanted to try it and the cost in the UK was really too much for me to spend on a moisturiser.
When I got back from holiday I started using this moisturiser straight away. It comes in a plastic bottle with a pump on the top of the bottle to dispense the moisturiser. It dispenses easily from the bottle and the pump also makes sure that you get every last trace of the product out of the bottle so you do not waste any - it is quite a strong pump and really well designed.
The moisturiser comes out as foam, it is an off white colour and it is not at all heavy, it is light and pearlescent. When applying the moisturiser it is light and fluffy and sinks into the skin really well. My skin felt really good after using this moisturiser. It has a light texture but despite the light texture it moisturises really well. It is not at all greasy and it smells really fresh. Lots of other Olay products have quite a strong familiar Olay scent but this product smells really good, not overly scented and very fresh.
I experienced really good results from this moisturiser, my skin felt supple and soft and it is really helpful if you have any skin discolouration. I noticed that my skin was a lot brighter after a few weeks of using the product. Really the moisturiser is a delight to use.
My 50ml holiday buy bottle lasted for nearly 5 weeks. As I was getting near the bottom of the bottle I began looking for it in the UK for the best price possible. In this time it had gone down from the £26.99 launch price to £22.99. I really wanted to keep using this moisturiser but I am going to be really honest here I could not afford to spend £22.99 on face cream every 5 weeks. Hence it was back to a cheaper brand!
Last week I was shopping in Body Care in my local High Street. I was looking for some cotton wool pads and toothpaste. As I was browsing I was very surprised to see Olay Definity Foaming Moisturiser 50mls for the very good price of £4.99. I was really shocked that the price had come down so much. I quickly added one to my basket. I really liked this product when I last tried it and I was delighted to find it for such a reasonable price. I have been using it for the last week and it is just as good as I remember it to be - only difference being is that now I can afford to buy this every 5 weeks at a cost of £4.99.

Good moisturiser without the usual Olay smell, well worth a try!
For anyone out there who has read any of my reviews you will see a bit of a pattern emerging. Yes, I do seem to buy a lot from Semi Chem. This is mainly due to the great bargains and offers they have on a regular basis.
My latest retail coup from Semi Chem is Olay Definity Foaming Moisturiser. Foaming I hear you say. Well, I thought that was a bid odd, but don't let it put you off, it's a fantastic idea. I bought this for a bargain £4.99 (for a 50ml bottle).
On the front of the bottle you will find the Olay Definity logo, and the side line which runs 'deep penetrating, anti-ageing, foaming moistuiser'. Its easy to use, the directions are printed on the back of the bottle, it states that you should use it once or twice daily, smooth over cleansed face and neck, paying particular attention to any areas which are prone to discolouration and dullness. There is also a handy free phone number should you have any questions or comments. There are also details of Olay website and the regular warning such as keep out of eyes, keep away from children (the container is pressurized) etc.
One warning, when dispensing this moisturiser don't be tempted to keep your finger on the nozzle dispenser too long as you will find you have squeezed out far too much product.
Also a little goes a long way. With the moisturiser being a foam it really is less is more. It has a really fresh light fragrance and feels lovely and silky on the skin. It is absorbed almost instantly, and there is no tell tale residue left on the skin. I'm able to put my make up on within a minute, so makes the skincare process in the morning really quick and easy.
The only downside to this is that I'm not sure how long this will last, with the tube being made out of grey plastic, there is no way to see how much is left in the bottle, which is a little annoying. I always like to see how much I'm using, and when I'm getting near to the end so I can go on another shopping spree!
In terms of delivering the 'anti-ageing' claim, I'm not too sure it's making any difference to my skin. It still looks the same, but I've only been using it for a few days.
I would definately recommend this for its moisturising properties alone, it moisturises my oily skin effectively, I've had no breakouts so it really does suit my skin type.
Would I buy it again? Yes at this price, you wouldn't be able to get a better moisturiser for under a fiver. But that said I still prefer my Olay Regenerist 3 point treatment cream which is over 4 times the price of this. If my pocket needs a rest then I'll get this cream again. Well done Olay.
Easier to spread than a cream and gives more even skin coverage /
