Olay Fresh Effects Long Live Moisture! Satin Finish Lotion Review

Olay Fresh Effects Long Live Moisture! Satin Finish Lotion 1

Olay recently launched the new Fresh Effects Skincare and with that collection they released a new moisturizer entitled Long Live Moisture! Satin Finish Lotion.

This is a lightweight, soft, satiny lotion that would best be suited for oily or combination skin types. Although drier skin might get a kick out of during the warmer weather!

Have a look!

This is an oil free lotion, yeah, lotion is an excellent word for it because it really isn’t a full blown moisturizer. This is soft, weightless, and doesn’t provide a ton of moisture for those with drier skin but will prove an excellent pick for those with oily skin. The light texture won’t clog pores and provides just enough moisture for oily skin while creating a smooth, satiny finish that gives skin a certain smooth appearance.

The lotion has a thinner, runnier consistency which absorbs easily into skin and sports a fresh scent (this is subtle to my nose but could prove annoying if you’re super sensitive). Although the lotion has a pink iridescence (as you can see it swatches) it doesn’t really produce a glow or highlighted effect on my skin.

All in all it’s a very basic moisturizer so if you’re looking for simplicity it doesn’t get any simpler than this. I personally didn’t like it right at the moment as it is cold out which means my skin is drier but perhaps in the Summer it’ll prove a perfect pick as it doesn’t make my skin greasy or shiny and has an incredibly lightweight feel. I think oily skin users might possibly love it!

Available now at drugstores.

    Will it clog my pores? I tend to get acne a lot, but need a good mosutriser due to the fact I’m on Retin A (which leaves huge dry patches on my normally oily skin)

  • Iris

    This sounds like it’d be perfect for my skin as a night moisturiser. Thanks for the review, and I’ll be trying it.

  • Johanna

    I’ve tried it for a month now. You’re right, it is a light moisturizer, doesn’t make my face glows pink, doesn’t break me out, doesn’t make me feel oily during the later parts of the day. I thought I would hate the scent being so close to my nose all day, but it wears off in less than an hour.

    It’ll be a great moisturizer in the hotter days..

    I was given it and absolutely love it. The problem is I have not been able to find it in stores in Ontario, Canada. Is there a specific drug store I should be looking for it? Please send me some information to make this easier for me. This moisturizer is totally amazing for the summer.

      Sorry Susan I’m in the US and I don’t have any idea where in Canada it would be available! I know amazon sells it! Maybe amazon ca has it in stock!
