Ingredients

Brand Overview

This light-textured, silky moisturizer for slightly dry skin anywhere on the face contains many commendable ingredients. The problem is that most of the beneficial ingredients will degrade soon after you start using the product because of the jar packaging (something Olay is typically good about avoiding). This product also contains an unusually high number of preservatives, including DMDM hydantoin, which can be a problem for skin, especially in the sensitive eye area.

Jar Packaging: Yes
Tested on animals: Yes

Visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the delicate eye area where signs of aging are most likely to appear. Hydrates to leave skin looking younger, smoother and overall healthier. Olay Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream, with Vitamin B3, Pro-Retinol and Beta-Hydroxy, is a wrinkle fighting formula that works deep within skin's surface to significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Olay At-A-Glance

Starting decades ago with the now-classic Oil of Olay, this brand now offers an extensive range of skin-care products sold at drugstores and mass-market stores. Today's Olay lineup for those concerned about staving off the effects of aging skin is impressive, comprising their Regenerist, Pro X, and Total Effects lines. All of these (and several other Olay products) contain the B vitamin niacinamide. As you might expect, the claims made for it are inflated, but niacinamide is a very helpful ingredient for all skin types, capable of exerting multiple benefits.

In fact, perhaps the biggest complaint about Olay is that there are a number of repetitive formulas within and between the sub-brands make this line confusing and tricky to shop! Still, there is a lot to like about this drugstore stalwart, with its main drawback being a few formulas containing fragrance or other ingredients that have the potential to cause irritation.
