Bright and Bouncy
Olay Niacinamide + AHA moisturiser left my complexion feeling bright and bouncy. Used alongside the accompanying niacinamide and AHA serum my skin glowed with health and radiance.
I noticed that some of my old scarring faded slightly over the few weeks of consistent use, and the redness in my cheeks also diminished somewhat. I’m positive that with longer usage more improvements will be seen.
The texture was luxurious and did not leave a greasy residue. So applying it right before bed was not an issue as no marks were left on pillowcases.
I will say that the fragrance is lovely, however, if you have an aversion to fragranced products this one might not be for you.
Not a bad moisturiser
I trialled this product alongside the matching serum, and while I absolutely loved the serum, I wasn't as big of a fan of the moisturiser. The texture was quite thick and creamy and I didn't feel like it absorbed into my skin as much as other moisturisers I've tried. Over the years, and after trying different products, I've learned that my skin prefers more hydrating, lighter, gel like moisturisers as opposed to creamier, heavier ones.
The packaging was nice and sleek, however I found the inner lid extremely hard to take off - a huge difference in comparison to the great packaging of the serum. The fragrance was pleasant though; a light, sweet fragrance that isn't overpowering at all.
Unfortunately, unlike the serum, I didn't notice much of a difference in my skin after the short period in trying this moisturiser. It might need some more time for my skin to adjust to it so happy to keep using it for a while longer, however I can normally at least start feeling a difference with other products even if I can't see it, although it didn't happen with this one. I'm sure it has more to do with my skin type and preferences rather than the product itself and would work better on other skin types.
Sent from heaven?
I found this cream to be on the heavier side, but it really penetrated into your skin, not leaving it in an oily mess, or even worse just sitting on top of your skin. I added it into my skin care routine just before I apply sunscreen, it sinks in so quickly, which is amazing and absolutely perfect for me because I have no time in the mornings to wait aimlessly around for my skin to be dry before I apply my make up. This product, teamed with the niacinamide serum actually worked miracles for my skin. Spots disappeared so much faster than normal and did not return. My skin feels silky smooth and I cant wait to look 30 when Im 50 as I continue to use the heavenly, miracle working product.

Olay Luminous Niacinamide + AHA Face Cream Moisturiser
Absolutely love this product
Another lightweight and hydrating product produced by a trusted name on the market. Play has been around forever and definitely moving with the new era in this great moisturizer. I used the serum with this moisturizer and they complimented each other very well. Would be great for most skin types. I did find the texture and clarity of my skin improved after with regular use however didn’t do much for my pore and the small amount of skin spots that I do have. All in all I am impressed and would definitely purchase or recommend to others.
A game changer face moisturiser
I did not expect Olay's Niacinamide + AHA moisturiser to be such a good product. To clarify, for someone who is in their 40s, I have had a fair share of moisturisers from cheap to expensive in my life, but I keep coming to Olay's products.
I love the luxurious packaging, luscious creaminess and soft feel on the skin. The cream once applied was fast absorbed by my skin. I usually would apply the serum first and then apply the moisturiser. I felt it gave me a great coverage throughout the day and my soft was left looking radiant all day.
I have a comvination of skin tones - dry, oily, red. When I first started using it, my skin was quite dry around the nose and I've noticed initially a little bit of dry peeling near the nose. There was no itchiness, just dryness. However, 2 days after the peeling was gone, skin was left feeling soft, skin tone balanced and the dryness was gone.
I absolutely love applying it at night prior to going to bed. It is so easy to apply, it doesn't leave any greasy residual and the skin is supple in the morning and ready for the next application.
Don't sit, run to the store and get it.
The perfect moisturiser
Thai is an amazing moisturiser.
I really like the olay AHA range because it actually works well.
This moisturiser is so silky and creamy that the cream sinks straight into skin and doesn’t leave your face greasy.
It leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft and it has helped to fade the age spots on my face. Any blemish or spot is helped by this moisturiser and it has made my skin look more youthful and so much clearer. It comes at a great price for the results it delivers so I can certainly afford it. The glass canister with silver lid is classy and pretty and this feels and looks like a really luxe cream. I will absolutely buy this product again and would highly recommend it
Great every day product
I really have enjoyed using this moisturiser because it is gentle on my skin and leaves my face feeling lovely and soft. It’s perfect for someone like me with sensitive skin as it didn’t irritate it at all. The consistency is great, not at all greasy or heavy. I found this moisturiser absorbs really well and goes on great underneath makeup. The scent is also really pleasant yet delicate, and didn’t irritate my skin at al (I generally find that heavily perfumed products tend to upset my skin). Overall a really good every day moisturiser. I only gave it 4 stars as for me it wasn’t a game changer.
I used Olay a lot growing up but have moved away from it in recent years, so I was excited for this trial and to see how their new products perform. I used this AHA Niacinamide moisturiser in conjunction with the serum from the same range for several weeks, and I was fairly happy with the results. The moisturiser is a little more scented than I would prefer, but the smell was pleasant. It is a lightweight moisturiser that absorbs nicely into the skin, and doesn't leave any unwanted residue. In regard to the overall appearance of my skin, I think I noticed a slight improvement in the texture and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, but nothing too significant. I will continue to use this range to see if any long-term improvements can be achieved. I think this moisturiser is a little overpriced at $60, but I may repurchase if I can pick it up on sale.
I very rarely use moisturizers as most don't work well with my skin, but I was excited to trial this alongside the Olay AHA serum. I believe both worked really well together to help achieve great results for my acne-prone skin.
I used both bay and night, and I noticed a difference after a week! My pores looked less noticeable, my acne marks are less noticeable and my skin was so smooth. It doesn't leave a heavy feeling on the skin at all and my skin has never felt this good. I have recommended this to all of my family and friends to try as it is amazing.
Good product, nice texture
I received this product alongside the AHA and Nicacinimide Serum for review.
I love Alpha Hydroxy Acids for improving skin texture and Nicacinimide is meant to be wonderful for skin health as well as fading dark spots and reducing congestion.
I found this cream wasn't as hydrating as my skin needs, so had to layer it with other products, however, the face cream had a great smell and a great texture. I didn't use it long enough to see any impact on dark spots but my skin texture is very clear. The packaging is nice however it would be good to be something a bit more eco-friendly.
Loving this moisturiser
I was looking for a perfect moisturiser for my skin this winter and when I got this product it was perfect. I have tried plenty of moisturisers all these years but never found the one. I always hated when moisturisers left a greasy residue and was very surprised when this moisturiser didn’t do the same. It felt like the all the moisturiser got inside my skin. Loved loved loved this product. My skin is hydrated, soft and glowing after using this product. A tiny bit works a long way and it lasts for a long time. I could use it with my makeup as well which was a plus point for me. Definitely recommending and buying again.
I have used this moisturiser with the matching serum day and night for several weeks now and I have definitely noticed an improvement in the overall texture and brightness of my skin.
I found the moisturiser went on easily and absorbs quickly, I am even able to apply foundation straight over the top.
My skin feels smoother, brighter and well moisturised.
The only downside is the packaging- I found it really hard to remove the plastic protection inside the container (maybe because I have fake nails?) And would have to use tweezers to lift it off.
I would definitely recommend this and purchase it again.
Great moisturising cream
I was so excited to try this new moisturiser as I had never tried one with Niacinamide in it as well. It did not disappoint. The smell of the product was so lovely and complimented the Niacinamide gel as well. It was silly and smooth to lather onto my skin and didn't leave a nasty shine or oily feeling. It drew into my skin quite quickly which I like as I don't have all day to wait around to put my make up on afterwards. I used thr moisturiser both day and night and was able to use it over my retinol with no issues. I have quite sensitive skin and had no issues with redness or outbreaks as a result of using thus product. It lasted very well and is definitely worth the price.
Great everyday moisturiser
This moisturiser was just as nice and gentle on my sensitive skin as the serum. I had no issues with sensitivity, making sure I applied sunscreen after each use in the morning my skin was looking well hydrated and nourished after application. The moisturiser is a nice mid-weight - not too heavy but still providing a good amount of moisture for the skin. Using this, combined with the serum I found that my skin had a really nice even tone to it after a few weeks and was completely free of any new spots or blemishes. Would recommend this product - even for those sensitive skin gals.
I trialled the moisturizer and serum together.
The moisturizer by itself was very good. I really liked the texture, it absorbed quite well and kept my skin nice and hydrated without being greasy or oily. In combination with the serum, it became somewhat gluey and felt like it sat on top of my skin instead of absorbing into my skin.
Did I experience any of the benefits which were promoted on the package? No- but I suspect it takes a while to have any impact.
Be aware that there is quite a strong fragrance (smells like candy to me!), which I didn't mind, but some people might not like that it is so heavily perfumed.
The packaging is quite nice, although there is an inner lid which I struggled to get open a few times (like it was suctioned shut).
A great mid-range moisturiser
I really enjoy using this moisturiser. I personally have quite sensitive skin which tends to not like many products (especially heavily scented ones), however this product is perfect for my skin. I really like the consistency and the fact that it doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy or heavy. It is a lovely light moisturiser which absorbs well and sits great under make up. I also really like the delicate scent which is really pleasant but not to overpowering. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I don't think it does much more other than moisturise.
Olay Niacinamide + AHA Moisturiser is easily absorbed into the skin, is a smooth texture and is great used in conjunction with the Olay AHA serum. It isn't greasy and has a pleasant smell that isn't overpowering. I have a few sun /age spots and they have lightened in appearance and my completion seems a lot more even and bright. The packaging is a cute pot, easily to use and a little goes a long way. It goes on as a moisturiser and sinks into the skin quickly, without feeling sticky, and I find overnight when I wake my skin is supple and soft. I would definately purchase this again along with the serum to get the benefits of both.
I absolutely adore this Olay moisturiser! Used in conjunction with the serum from the same line, I have noticed such a visible difference in my skin texture - my pores are smaller, redness is less visible and it’s overall much smoother.
I have oily combination skin which is prone to breakouts, but I didn’t have any negative reactions to the AHA and found that it helped to reduce the fine lines around my eyes and mouth.
I will continue to use this skincare line and recommend it to anyone with similar skin concerns.
This is an incredible product. The Olay Niacinamide + AHA Moisturiser will be replacing my old face moisturiser. Whilst I didn't see a huge difference on surface spots, over the 2 weeks of using this product, I did see a change for the better. It has a lovely texture and glides over your face beautifully. Felt lovely on my skin and smelt divine. My skin felt amazing and moisturised using this daily for a few weeks. Usually during the cooler months my face feels terrible and dry, but my skin feels great. My skin not only feels great, but looks more refreshed and youthful. I will continue to buy.
