Review: 
First things first, very cute packaging and shows such a young, fun side to Olay compared to their traditional packaging over the years. I haven't used this brand and their products since elementary school so I don't even know what to expect. (yes, my mom told me to use it back in the day)

Comes in a paper box and a jar. I can see many would find the jar frustrating for A) girls with long nails B) it's not as hygienic compared to tubes or pump bottles. This can easily be solved with a spatula though. =)

The product itself is a gel moisturizer, very lightweight with floral fragrance. I find it pleasant and the scent is not overwhelming. It is quickly absorbed into my skin and there is no stickiness or film if I over apply the product. My skin instantly feels moisturized and smooth, very refreshing.  It stays well under make up and I noticed that I don't become a grease ball throughout the day or when I wake up in the morning. It is perfect for the spring and summer season.

With that said, I think it does all that the product claimed in the description and it's a great product for those who has young, low maintenance skin types. If this product was there during my high school years - it would've been like... HALLELUJAH!!

For me, however, with skin type that is dehydrated and dry in my mid-20s, I prefer something with above and beyond moisturizing + anti-aging benefits. Finally as for the price point, it may be a little high. However, I've been seeing lots of coupons and sales floating around which makes the product more affordable. The jar will roughly last a month, more or less, depending on usage.
