Product Review: Olaz Complete Day Cream with UV Filters
Name: Complete Day Moisturizer With UV Filters
From Olaz’s website:
From the first application, you will feel your skin is more hydrathed and smooth giving you a healthy and glowy look. The protective action of SPF 15 UV filters together with the antioxidants properties of Vitamin E helps fight free radicals and sun rays, the main causes of aging.
What I liked:
– the price
– skin feels hydrated and smooth
What I didn’t like:
– the fragrance
I bought the Olaz Complete Day Cream this summer. I was looking for a moistirizer with SPF that wouldn’t break the bank. This was very cheap and so I thought I’d try it and I have to say it is one of the best drugstore moisturizers I’ve tried so far.
The cream is white and has a light consistency. It absorbs rapidly and isn’t greasy at all. It hydrates my skin and leaves it feeling smooth. It kept me skin shine-free for a few hours, which I loved cos it usually starts shining again after just a couple of hours. I also didn’t notice any breakouts.
It has a nice and delicate fragrance. I don’t like fragrance in comstics as it is one of the most irritating ingredients used in products, but if you don’t have a product with that, this has a nice scent that is not overpowering.
Olaz Complete contains Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane (Avobenzone), which protects against UVA rays, Octocrylne which protects against UVB rays and Vitamin E, which is an antioxidant that protects skin against ultraviolet radiation. Unfortunately it also contains Benzyl Alcohol, which can be irritating and drying.
Overall, I really liked this cream. It left my skin soft and hydrated, it is cheap and contains sunscreen ingredients that will protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays.
