Olay Moisturizing Cream Review

Guest Post By - Akanksha
Hello all, 
I am new to the blog but feel so attached to it. I have been reading the posts for quite some time and really love and enjoy reading each and every review. I am…rather I was a no makeup girl but now have started using some sort of makeup…started with eye pencils :-D….at least now I have come to know something about the makeup.
I am going to write about Olay moisturizing cream today and share my experiences with all of you. The cream comes in light pink color in a wide tub with a soft and pleasant fragrance.

My experience: I really like this cream because of its mild fragrance and does not make my skin oily-oily as I have normal skin but God has blessed me with oily T-zone too :-P. Had the natural face oil been used anyway for some good purpose I would have been the happiest person…sorry for the pj! J. And yes the quantity of the cream that comes in the tub is also ample which feels me like…my dil goes mmm mmm mmm.

The cream comes off the tub easily because of the wide mouth of the tub. Also you do not have to dig much with the astra and shastra into it to get the last trace of the cream. My skin feels good, soft and smooth after applying the cream. The only thing I wonder about the cream is its ingredients like some kind of alcohol and some kind of urea!!! Only first three ingredients are known to me and had studied about isopropyl in chemistry during school days :-P.

A small amount of it does a god job and it lasts for 30-45 days if applied daily (but not twice a day as mentioned in the directions). I wish the cream had some spf elements then it would have been my favorite of favorites cream J. My all time favorite is Boroline which I use as night cream (don’t know if its good practice)

This is how the cream looks outside the tub.

Pros:
Nice fragrance
Does not feel sticky or greasy
Makes skin soft (only for few hours though :-P)
Absorbs well into the skin
No breakouts experienced
Does not produce oil if you have applied it and step out in the sun
Can be applied before applying makeup
Decently priced
Ample quantity for Rs.399 :-D

Cons:
The only con if found is that it contains parabens!

My take It’s a nice moisturizing day cream which can be applied indoors and outdoors (with sunscreen ofcourse :-D). The cream will suit normal to oily skin people as it not too greasy. But dry skin people might not find it their skin type of cream. I would definitely recommend it to the all the readers as I am using the second tub now :-D

My Rating 4.5/5 (.5 deduction is for the parabanes).
