Olay Fresh Effects - Dew Over Review

Hey y'all!  Today I have an amazeballz moisturizer to tell you about.  Growing up I remember using the standard Olay moisturizer every time I visited my grandmother.  It was all she ever used.  So when I became an adult & started learning how to take care of my skin I was super sad to learn that it irritated my skin.

I ended up grabbing this along with the Out Of This Swirled and got a really good deal.  As with that product, I was kinda afraid that this wouldn't work well for my skin.  The reviews I saw didn't help much, so I went ahead anyway.  Boy am I glad that I did.  There's only one negative that I even have about this product, but I'll get to that later.

This comes in a jar with 1.7 oz of product and the MSRP is $12.99.  Inside is a lid to help keep the product fresh.  While this says it's a gel, it feels and looks more like a cream.  It's thin, lightweight, and oil free.  Most oil free moisturizers make my oily skin look greasy, but not this.  This is formulated with a powder to help it absorb quickly and make skin appear less oily.

Don't make the word powder fool you, it doesn't make your skin look powdery.  I'd say it looks like you've just applied something with a satin finish.  And it does absorb super fast.  My skin seems to drink this stuff up.  I do still have a little oil production throughout the day, but it's usually way later than usual.  Using this in conjunction with the cleanser has helped my skin tremendously.

Fewer breakouts, less oily skin, and my makeup goes on easily.  In fact, I'm loving this so much that I'm already on my 2nd jar.  It does have a slight floral scent, as it includes honeysuckle and white tea essence, but it's not irritating to my face.  It's so light that most days I don't even notice that it has a scent.

If you have oily skin, and nothing has worked, I highly suggest trying this out.  The ONLY negative that I even have about this is that it's in a jar.  I hate sticking my fingers, even if they are super clean, into a product.  I feel like most of it gets stuck under my fingernails and is wasted.

Have you tried any of the Olay Fresh Effects products?
