Started great, sudden burning rash.
I started using the moisturiser, serum and eye cream. I was loving it and had used regularly for a month. After showering i used as usual, but my skin flared up and was burning and itchy. How could i use it 20 times and now all of a sudden i have a reaction? Frustrated and sore.
Purchased in December 2020 at eBay for $48.00.
I am a new customer
I was quite surprised by the deceptive packaging - large box with small jar inside. Also, is there a trick to opening the jar for the first time without smashing it?

Face burning !
I used for two days and seemed fine, then third day I put it on after a shower and my face instantly started burning and a rash broke out on forehead and cheeks, I’ve washed it off but still burning, was hopeful this was going to be worth the cost :(
Purchased in June 2020.
Rash, Sunburn Reaction
Great smooth texture, light and non-greasy. However, my skin did not like one of the ingredients and I was left with a red rash-sunburn reaction. Purchased from Walmart - April 2020 also.
Purchased in April 2020 at Walmart for $9.99.
A good night cream
I trialled the microsculputing cream recently in an effort to ensure I keep my skin looking great as I enter the next decade!
I was a little disappointed that there was no SPF included in the product as I burn easily and require this in my cream! I attempted to use Sun cream with it but that left my skin greasy and prone to breakouts.
The cream itself gave a bit of a sting when applied - I believe this means its
working! My skin did feel softer after applying but due to the lack of sun protection I did not use it long enough to notice any changes in my skin in regards to reduced wrinkles or plumpness
Purchased in August 2019 for $34.00.
Not suitable for sensitive skin
Packaging is beautiful. However I have sensitive skin and the cream didnt suit me. it was smooth to put on and had a nice texture however within a minute I felt a burning and tingling sensation so I had to quickly wash it off.
Product caused a reaction.
After 5 days of use my face is red and hot to the touch. This product is to strong for me. Perhaps I was only to have used it 1 day a week? I have always been happy with Olay products but won't be buying this again.
Purchased in January 2019 for $20.00.
Must be lucky
After reading these reviews i don't think i should complain about my experience with this product. Just have a little peeling which is odd because I used this product about 3 years ago and it was faultless. Disappointing, but its still an ok moisturiser so I am just going to say I must be one of the lucky ones that haven't had a horrific time with it.
Waste of money
I spent a considerable amount of money on this product and have used it daily for two months, I have seen no change at all, fine lines have now appear to look more prominent, it smells like a chemical factory, God knows what the skin is drinking using this.
Questions & Answers
For anyone who has had a skin reaction to this product. What did you do to help with your skin reaction? I have red itchy bumps all over my face and rashes that look like a sun burn from using this product.
I've used this product for years, mostly during the winter when skin is dryer. Opened a new jar this December and I'm itchy, red, and swollen all over my face and neck after one application. How did the formula change? I bought two large jars of this.

I purchased it at Costco several months ago. I applied cream from a new jar December 3 and noticed some itchiness the next morning. By mid-day the 4th my face and neck were red and puffy. I rinsed off with water and did not use another product for a couple days. It subsided by the 6th, but I started searching the internet to see if there had been some change in the formula.
Started using olay when i was in highschool white lotion with the black cap and white bottle since then im still using it, unfortunately no product available when i moved here in sydney they only produce it in asian countries. 25 years later im still using oley but its olay regenrist i can say it depends on the skin try to keep looking for products thats suits ur skin type. Greatful i found one, family and friends and some people thinks i go to doctors for skin care but never experienced it and thanks to olay for that!!!
