I was excited to be able to review Olay UV Lotion as I have been a fan of Olay products for a number of years. At first glance the packaging was eye catching being predominately a bright yellow. I was surprised to see on the back panel that Olay is a proud supporter of the Skin Cancer Foundation and provided a reference to the skin cancer website for more information. This product is dermatologically tested to suit sensitive skin. On opening the packaging the application was easy to apply with a quick pump action. With Aloe and Green tea extracts the cream is a creamy but not greasy and is easily absorbed into the skin. While there is a hint of fragrance it is very subtle. As with similar Olay moisturisers I am pleased with the product and with the added bonus of SPF30 Broad spectrum coverage, this is a product I will purchase going forward. Pricing is affordable and I would totally recommend this product especially if you have sensitive skin. Thank you Beauty Review for the opportunity to review.

Tips: Apply a small amount to the back of your hand and smooth over your face, neck, arms or anywhere you need to moisturise and protect from the sun at the same time.
I had high hopes for a day cream that delivered on both sun protection and feeling lightweight. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Olay Complete UV Lotion Sensitive Skin SPF30 met these needs and then some. My skin feels so much softer after applying it and it is not heavy or greesy. I spend most of my day outdoors and my skin normally feels tight and dry by the time I get home but with this lotion it still feels soft and mosterised. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with sensitive skin wanted to up the sun defence for their skin.
Tips: Add a dab of foundation to it to create a sun savvy tinted moisturiser
I love this product! A lovely hydrating, sensitive skincare, with SPF of 30! What more could you ask for!? The packaging is quite ergonomically pleasing, it fits in the hand nicely and is easy to pump. I found that I can control the amount quite easily and the product itself is a lovely texture. I have used this daily since I received it to trial and have been impressed with how it hydrates and is quite a good base for my foundation. I did notice that I became a little oily around my t-zone however, not enough to be overly bothered. I loved that it had such a high sun protection factor and I felt confident that it was giving me good protection. I would definitely recommend this product as it's good value for money.
Tips: Don't rely on this product as your only sun protection factor, wear a hat and sunnies in the sun shine...regardless of season!
The consistency of this is a nice, thick creamy feel. It goes on really well and feels really hydrating. It doesn't have a horrid smell - I quite like it and doesn't smell too bad of that sunscreen smell despite the 30 SPF. That is the best bit! It's so light weight and not too shiny and I feel super protected throughout the day.
Tips: I wouldn't use this for any events because of the flash back properties that go along with sunscreen factor. But this is amazing, for everyday wear and I feel great!
Thank you beauty review team for another great product to trial and review.I found this moisturiser to be really great as the consistency was just right,not too thick or thin and the product melted straight into my skin without leaving any greasy or sticky residue.I used 4 pumps to cover my face and neck.My skin felt soft and silky after applying and it was easy to apply foundation over the top,waiting just a few minutes or so.In fact I found this makes a great primer underneath make up as my foundation glided on smoothly and looked flawless.The scent was quite subtle,no definite smell just a very mild Aloe Vera fragrance so it was pleasant to use.I did notice after the first day of using that my face did break out in a few small red spots but I think it was just my skin adjusting to a new product because during the two weeks of trialing this,my skin has settled down and I havn't had any more adverse reactions.I love that it contains SPF 30 UVA/UVB protection and that it really does keep your skin hydrated for at least 8 hours plus the bonus ingredients of Aloe Vera and Green Tea make this a great product to keep it hydrated and healthy looking.Having sensitive skin,this product is pretty much going to be in my daily skincare regimen because it seems to be doing a good job of protecting my skin although the real test will be in the summer time when the sun is harsher and I am outdoors more.Olay have done very well with producing a product to suit sensitive skin and protect it and the packaging is eye catching and has a nice summery look about it but the pump bottle I love! It makes it so easy to get the product out with out any mess or waste and it is more hygenic then having to stick your fingers in a jar.I would like to see a bigger size bottle though because I feel this would be more economical to use,75ml is not going to last too long when using on a daily basis and at a retail price of $15 this could work out quite expensive.Overall I was very satisfied from the results of using this moisturiser and it really does benefit your skin as well as protecting it so I thoroughly recommend.
Tips: I found this worked great on your hands too.
The goal going in to this was to change my 'argh it takes so much effort though' mind set when it comes to sunscreen on my face daily. The fact that this is only $15 from the supermarket, makes it that much more attainable for the tight budget so yay for that too! Now, in the past Olay and I have never really been close friends. Other products have been more like a watered down body lotion as my good friend 'Shazatron' pointed out. This was the be all end all of Olay for me so, onwards I trudged, with an open mind.
The bottle appeared smaller than what I would expect but it was a nice size to fit in my 'take with me everywhere bag'. It has a pump action top which makes it so much easier to dispense on my hand without mess or fuss. It is for sensitive skin, another bonus for me. I have sensitive skin at the best of times so need to be careful not to clog my skin of harsh chemicals. What is slightly alarming is that it says keep out of reach of children and an irritant to eyes. If it is for sensitive skin and has an SPF factor in it surely it shouldn't be that potent? Or maybe it's just a covering all bases warning?!
Because it spreads quite well I only have to use minimal product which means it would or should last a good month or so of everyday use for a minimal price. I expected it to be a bit greasy because of the SPF factor in it but oh how surprised I was when it went on just like a moisturiser. My skin drank it in and was soft and not at all shiny 10 seconds after. This means my BB cream will look fantastical underneath without having to powder away that oil residue! In fact my BB cream sits far better over the top of this. I guess it must create a more useable canvas.
It has been 11 days to the day when this arrived in my mailbox and I have to say that I haven't found it an effort at all. Truth be told I remember to do this everyday with my makeup more than I do a skin care regime. My skin has thanked me for it too. It is much less dull and lifeless. It has a glow about it and it's reassuring to know that I have done my slip, slop, slap and wrap for the day, even in winter when we don't think about it so much. I will definitely repurchase this again because I just love how compact and easy it is to remember to apply it. Thanks for changing my mind BR and Olay. I now find no effort in protecting my skin and I also don't dislike this particular Olay product so winning all around!
Tips: I apply mine twice a day which is probably too much but I like to know that I am protected from UV during the day.
I've used a number of Olay products over the year so so was looking to try this. The packaging isn't overly flash - but then it doesn't need to be! It says to apply a generous amount so I pumped out 3 pumps. It was appeared to be quite a light cream but actually felt thicker on application and the 3 pumps pretty much went nowhere. So I've been using 5 or 6 pumps. It rubs in quite nicely and doesn't have a strong fragrance (which is a good thing!). Although it my face didn't feel quite as moisturiserised as I would have liked and I have had a few more dry patches than normal. I've not had any breakouts since using it (woo-hoo!) But I have noticed my cheeks have been a bit redder than normal. I can't comment on the SPF side of things (I live in Wellington and it's winter!). It was nice to try but I think there's other options in the same price range that is buy over this!
Tips: Use more than you think you need!
I LOVE the fact that this has a higher Spf than a lot of other facial moisturisers especially as I live in a very sunny summer climate. I found this product easy to use and light and non greasy. I used 2 pumps to apply to my face as I like to use plenty of moisturser on my face. I couldn't detect any fragrance so I like that in a face cream or a light fragrance only. The pump lid was able to be closed off easily to slip in my make up bag with no leakage. The container is a handy size that I like as I shower daily at the gym and dont like to carry large bottles of products. I think it is a good value for money product although I can't vouch for the spf in it as it is winter at the moment but I will check that out in the coming summer
Tips: I always rub the leftover last bit of lotion over the back of my hands, to help keep my hands protected and moisturised also
This is my new holy grail moisturising lotion! I adore this. Thanks so much BR for letting me trial this.
I have super sensitive skin and many skin products irritate it, so its hard for me to find a good moisturiser let alone on that has SPF in it.
I have had no reactions at all with this. The formula is light weight and non greasy. Its easy to rub into my skin and quite fast at absorbing. I love how it makes my skin feel and my fave thing about this is how it has spf in it. What more can you ask for?
The bottle is quite cute and petite, I love the pump on it, It allows you to have complete control of how much product you are accessing. A little amount of product goes a long way which is awesome! It will last quite a while and its great value for money.
Olay is a brand I know and trust and as usual no products from Olay have failed me. This moisturizer is a winner! And now it has a permanent spot in my skincare regime.
I've used another Olay product similar to this before which I've had no trouble with, same packaging (unfortunately can't remember the name) so I have no trouble with it. It feels light to put on and none-greasy, no fragrance I could detect, although we only get 2 weeks to test this and it's in the middle of winter, so I can't vouch for its SPF component, TBA! Generally great for everyday use.
Tips: Simple to use, no hassle!
