Unexpected benefit for men

While this product is marketed to women, as a man with a neck affected by years (OK, multiple decades) of sun, I thought I'd give it a shot. I figured, skin is skin, right? If it works for women, it should work for men.

Overall, it seems to work well - it is absorbed very quickly, zero scent and, after a few weeks of use, I think it has provided some benefits. Granted, the change has been very subtle, so it could be the placebo effect at work, but I'll be generous and credit the product.

One benefit that the typical user would not be aware of is that it is outstanding at eliminating razor burn from shaving. I use an electric and, while it's much, much better than a blade when it comes to irritation, it still can leave my neck with red spots. A small application of this product before shaving, and the razor just glides and still provides a very close shave. There are many products for men specifically geared toward minimizing razor burn, but this is the best one I've used. Also great as an after shave balm for the neck.

So, if the spouse/boyfriend/significant other should complain about razor burn, have him try this. Not exactly a "manly" product name or packaging, but if it works, who cares?

I'll give it four stars since I don't think it is as effective as it claims to be for it's "proper" use, but five stars as a shaving aid.

I've been using this restoration treatment a few weeks now and I love the way it feels on my skin - very soft and silky. It's absorbed quickly, has no heavy odor I can detect, and goes on smoothly. As a person who spent a lot of time in the sun in my younger days, I have a few sun spots on my chest and this has helped to minimize them. I don't see any outstanding results with my neck as regards to fine lines and uneven skin tones, but I'm hoping as I keep using it, that it will help.

I don't have any issues with wrinkling, dry skin or sagging around my neck, so a product like this might seem to be useless. Thing is, if you use it, maybe you won't have any issues with your neck!    That being said, the product is dispensed cleanly from a pump bottle. It is absorbed quickly into skin, no greasy feel. I can see no problems at all with it, and because it's Olay, it probably has a good effect on those with neck and throat skin problems.    It's …
