Olay Introduces Hyaluronic Acid Skincare and Takes On Micellar Water

Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel with Hyaluronic Acid, Olay Luminous Advanced Tone Perfecting Micellar Water, and Olay Age Defying Advanced with Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Gel Moisturizer are some new picks popping up at the drugstore. Earlier this year, Neutrogena introduced their Hydro Boost Skincare and Makeup Collection so it was only a matter of time for other budget brands to embrace the hyaluronic acid trend that’s been sweeping the skincare world for the past several years.

I’m a rather big supporter and fan of hyaluronic acid as it not only hydrates but also allows skin to retain moisture not to mention it plumps skin beautifully. The only problem is most of the drugstore picks I’ve found that contain hyaluronic acid also tend to have alcohol, they contain a very small amount of hyaluronic acid, or they contain some sort of brand made hyaluronic acid complex.

Let’s take a look!

Olay Age Defying Advanced with Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Gel Moisturizer (Available in Normal and Dry Skin Formulas) (Available at Ulta.com and Amazon.com)
This gel moisturizer is formulated with hyaluronic acid and B3 vitamins and promises to have a lightweight, quickly absorbing formula that provides up to 24 hours worth of moisture.

Water/Eau, Glycerin, Cyclopentasiloxane, Niacinamide*, Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Hyaluronate**, Tocopheryl Acetate***, Panthenol****, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Glycereth-25 PCA Isostearate, Polyacrylamide, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Aminomethyl Propanol, Phenoxyethanol, Dimethiconol, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Methylparaben, Titanium Dioxide, Laureth-7, Propylparaben, Fragrance/Parfum, Ethylparaben, Disodium EDTA, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate (*Vitamin/Vitamine B3, **Hyaluronic Acid/Acide Hyaluronique, ***Vitamin/Vitamine E, ****Pro-Vitamin/Provitamine B5)

Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel with Hyaluronic Acid (Available at Ulta.com and Amazon.com)
Hydrating Eye Gel has long since been apart of Olay’s permanent collection but this new formulation contains haluronic acid. This is a cooling, hydrating gel that contains peptides, pro-vitamin B5, and haluronic acid to hydrate skin and help retain moisture around the delicate skin of the eyes.

Olay Luminous Advanced Tone Perfecting Micellar Water (Available at ulta.com)
Give skin a clean, brighter, illuminated appearance with this hydrating micellar water that easily removes makeup while brightening skin.

These new Olay skincare picks are popping up now at drugstores and online.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I will definitely be on the lookout for these. I’m a fan of Olay and now with hyaluronic acid in their products an even bigger one.

    I want these. They are in my cart, but holding off. I have so much, I feel so guilty about buying more. So many great sales over the Holiday weekend, and I bought 3 gift sets of perfume. Because I needed more. SMH! But, I will be trying these out. Olay has really stepped up their game in the last decade or so.

      Haha! I totally can relate 😀 damn weekend sales!

  • Brian

    Sodium hyaluronate is pretty high on the ingredient list! I will definitely look into these when Olay goes on sale at Ulta.

  • wendy

    ohhhhhhhhhh I saw these last week, but was in a hurry — definitely going to check them out this weekend!

  • Brandy

    I wish they didn’t put these in jars. I always somehow manage to get little fuzzies in jars of skincare products no matter how clean my hands are.

  • Holly Murphy

    I just wish they would put ALL of their moisturizers in some type of nice, neat, tidy jar or pump, lol!

    I really like Olay’s products too, they’re not expensive as some skincare can be and they do the job pretty well to my liking.
    I would be very interested in trying out these products.
