According to the box Complete Olay Touch of Sun Moisturiser SPF15 provides your skin with everything it needs to be healthy whilst adding a little self tan to you skin each day. That’s a bit of a tall order but I do like Olay creams so I decided to give it a whirl, it was also on special in Boots last month.
The lotion felt a little too thick and greasy for my liking. Although it didn’t break me out, it certainly has the potential to break someone out. The good news is that it didn’t leave a film on the skin. It also doesn’t smell like fake tan which is always a bonus.
This cream contains DHA to tan the skin. I didn’t have high expectations for this part of the deal but I was pleasantly surprised. I used it before I jetted off to the sun and found that it added a very subtle glow following the first application. After the second day it provided a light tan. It wasn’t orange or streaky on my skin.
It comes is light/medium and medium/dark. I bought the latter, light tans don’t show up on my skin. I recently read a review written by a very fair and sensitive skinned lady who said that it made her skin look a little orange and broke her out. I haven’t experienced either problem, Although I’m not super fair.
Although it contains SPF15 it’s not designed for sunbathing. In other words you would need to reapply this a few times each day to offer sun protection which isn’t possible as you would look like an oompa loompa after all that DHA. I prefer to use a sun screen designed for the face.
All in all it’s a good product (assuming it doesn’t break me out). Definitely not holy grail but nice all the same. Be aware that what works for my skin may/may not work for yours. Unfortunately that’s why we all spend so much money trying products out.
