Picture a strong sunscreen mixed with a moisturizer, packaged in an attractive pump bottle, and you'll have a very good idea of what this product is all about.
The bottle is miles ahead of the shake and squeeze suntan bottles, and is clearly intended to resemble a hand or face moisturizer bottle with a pump built into the top. It works very well, and really makes me wish all suntan lotions came with a pump bottle. It is easy to get out the right amount, whenever needed.
The cream is very much like a standard hand moisturizer, though the scent does remind me of a sunscreen. This may be because the sunscreen is a chemical type, so if you are sensitive to standard sunscreen chemicals, be careful to try a small amount before putting it all over your face.
Overall, a small but nicely packaged moisturizing sunscreen. A great idea!

I have always liked Olay products and this is another one to add to their list of excellent skin care. First and foremost it is a cream, that should be noted because generally lotions come in a dispenser like this one. Creams are usually reserved for tubs...that could throw someone who is not looking for a cream. It was great for my sensitive skin that SPF's sometimes sting. Also this thoroughly hydrated my skin all day long. The only reason I am not giving this 5 stars is … more
