I wish I'd found this sooner than my 61 yrs. But all I can say is wowzers!!! I remember the smell from my childhood and it is amazing. I have only used the day n night creams for about a week.but I can already see the changes in my skin. I am impressed. At first feel on skin,I thought it was matty.but it dries to face is so soft!! This is from an estee lauder girl too...I will not go back.i live this old classic!!!

My Grandmother used Oil of Olay. Since I was a a young teenager I would use hers. I personally love the sent, maybe sentimental now as it will forever remind me of her. But I have always loved the scent. There are so very many new products on the market, but this is tried and true. I can't even be bothered with other moisturizers, Oil of Olay is my one and only and a family tradition so to say. With five of her children and 15 grandchildren who have children of there own 90% of us use it!

I grew up with my mom always using Olay original so of course that's what I use. It leaves your face so soft and keeps it nice and moisturized. The smell always brings back happy memories of my mom. This is a great product! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Olay recommends this cream as a replacement to its discontinued dew over moisturiser. Dew over used to be a gel based that moisturised and made face GLOW. Same with tone correcting night cream replaced with firming cream? They don't give same result. Please stop producing extra product lines and keep consistency in your old products. Very disappointed and will loose your long time customer like me.

I have used Olay's face moisturizer for probably close to 40 years and absolutely love it to this day. It leaves my face feeling so clean and fresh feeling. So soft and supple. And I credit those 40 years with hardly any wrinkles. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I have been using the Olay Active Hydrating Cream Original for over 20 years. It still moisturizes just as well as it did decades ago. A quality product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I'm closing in on 50 years and if it wasn't for this product I'm sure I would look closer to 60. Keeps my skin hydrated, supple and most importantly wrinkles at bay. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I purchased this cream about two weeks ago and I'm glad I did. It all started when I was searching for a new moisterizer for my face. I have combination skin and its so hard to find the right product. I was using Clinique for about seven months but my tzone would still be oily and the rest of my face still dry, especially my cheeks. Not to mention I was tired of spending so much on expensive products that are high end. I searched and searched and then it dawned on me to see what Olay offered. I have used other Olay products so I'm a fan but never anything on my face. I bought this and it has hydrated my dry areas very well and makes my skin so soft and velvety smooth. The smell is not overwhelming to me, it kind of smells like baby powder actually. But most importantly my skin looks even toned and my skin glows. I don't normally suffer with acne or bad skin in general, I have clear skin but I like to keep my skin looking its best and definitely not dry looking. This makes even good looking skin look better and that's saying something. A little goes a long way you don't need to apply much so the jar should last quite a while. I also wash my face in the day and also at night and apply this cream both times. I know this is a classic and its one of their older products but I love a product that's time tested and lives up to its word. Thank you Olay for such wonderful products you make. I'll always be a lifelong user.

I thought it was "old school"...

And "old school" is great...:) There is a reason why this product is still on the market, after all. I remember my mom using this sporadically, and I have tried other Olay products, but this is the one I was remain faithful to. My regimen is Oil of Olay in the morning; and Night of Olay prior to bed. My skin is radiant, soft, younger looking and more firm in literally just a matter of days. I don't care about looking "older", but I want to look the best I can at every age. Oil of Olay is helping me do just that. Thanks so much!

My mom will be 90 years old in June 2011. She has used Olay ever since I was a little girl and I am now 52. She is so beautiful for her age and always has Oil of Olay in her bathroom and bedroom. I have been using for about 23 years now and everyone tells me I look like I am in my late 30's or early 40's. I tell them "Oil of Olay". It makes me think of her every morning and night when I use it getting ready for work or getting ready for bed. LOVE IT! Thank you so much for wrinkle free face and a memory of a life time.

I grew up in Arizona and in my teens I became aware of how the dry air was affecting my skin. I couldn't use the same products as my peers because they seemed to have have heavy perfumes and chemicals that made my skin burn and break out . Oil of Olay became my favorite moisturizer because it soaked right into my skin without irritation. My face felt smooth, soft and quenched. Today many people tell me I look much younger than I am. I credit the Oil of Olay product line for that.

I have purchased many moisturizers, and this is by far the BEST.....This year I will hit 40, and must admit, I started the hunt several years ago. Not many products have I purchased more than once, but this is one that I always have. IMO, it must be used with whatever wrinkle/acne/problem, you may have, but, is the most, perfect moisturizer to use layered with whatever you may be using for your own personal needs. Love this stuff, don't ever discontinue this Olay...Please!

I Love this cream! Its not heavy at all. everything will absorb in three minutes. I have oily and dry skin and couldn't wear anything at night without a zit in the morning! Im serious. Its great all day long. I recommended to my mom who doesnt ever use anything but soap. made a difference to her seemingly perfect skin. and it last long and a cheap price. FYI: I am a real person! I always think the makers post their own comments to get people to buy it.

I am highly disappointed that you have discontinued the sensitive skin face cream. (Blue graphics on jar) It is the only hydrating cream that I have found on the market that is a comfortable excellent facial cream for me. It did not make me red or itchy and did not burn. The pink cream is not near as good. I do not understand why you dropped the other. Now I am back to the way I was before :( Please bring it back. I would even pay more for it.

This is truly the best facial cream out there to use. I have tried many only to go back to Olay Active Hydrating cream. I just hope and pray that the company does not discontinue this wonderful product. I started using Olay active hydrating cream when I was 25 and I have no wrinkles and people want to know what's my secret and of course I proudly say "Olay Baby"!

Good moisturizer, but way too much perfume

I used to use the Active Hydrating cream for sensitive skin which did not contain fragrance and it was the best moisturizer ever. But for some strange reason, Olay stopped making it. So I tried this, the Active Hydrating original formula. It moisturizes well, but I can't get past all the fragrance. WAY too much perfume! I won't be buying it again.

I recently move to California where the air is much drier than the humid south, where I'm from.I needed to switch moisturizers because my face was so dry that it began breaking out (I normally have no acne.) Since I've been using this, my face is back to normal and maybe even a little softer! No more dry patches for me!!
