Jar Packaging:Yes
pH:2.60
Tested on animals:Yes

Age Defying Classic Daily Renewal Cream is an option as a BHA product due to its salicylic acid content (approximately 2%), but the pH of 2.6 is unusually low and may prove too irritating for daily use, so proceed with caution. The base formula is best for normal to slightly dry or slightly oily skin. The jar packaging isn't the most hygienic option, and is also highly unlikely to keep the vitamin E (tocopheryl acetate) this contains stable once the jar is opened.

Claims

The beta hydroxy complex in Age Defying Daily Renewal Cream renews moisture to significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving skin soft and smooth. Beta hydroxy complex gently lifts away dull, dry skin to reduce the signs of aging and reveal younger looking skin.

Brand Overview

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.
