Olay Olay..Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot!

We've had a bout of pretty decent weather recently and I realised that my current moisturiser didn't contain SPF so armed with my purse, me and my brother headed for Tescos.

Funnily enough, he wasn't too into looking at "girly shit" so he busied himself picking up ice creams and then knocking me over with the trolley..

I really wasn't sure what to pick up and as the Tescos was a small one, this was the best it offered:

I've heard a lot about the Olay fluids (as filthy as that sounds) so I decided to give the SPF one a whirl.  I usually find that SPF moisturises tend to make combo skin more oily than it needs to be.

I was pretty impressed that Olay do fluids for all skincare types.  The bottle looks massive here but don't be fooled, it's quite diddly compared to how big the packaging is.
I really like it, the smell reminds me of old school Ulay products (I swear it used to be called Oil of Ulay..I was right! I knew it!) and it doesn't make me greasy at all.  It sinks in nicely and I feel adequately moisturised.

I got it for about £4 from Tescos and my brother bough Feasts, Cornettos and Fabs.


  1. I've been using this for years, and I love it.

    I remember being terribly confused when it changed from Ulay :D

  2. so i havnt lost it entirely it was called oil of ulay once upon a time

  3. I need a moisturiser with SPF 1000 dammit! You're so funny, i love reading your posts :)

  4. Geek_Kitten: I've never ever used it before because I had others and I fel it was a bit of a "grandma" cream but now I realise it is pretty good.

    Anita: I remember it being called Ulay too! Why they felt the need to change it is beyond me..

    Lillian: Korres do high SPF moisturisers and thanks, that's made my day!
