Complete All Day Moisture Cream with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15, Normal includes zinc oxide for UVA protection. The base formula is nothing too exciting, and in fact is one of the more lackluster options in Olay’s vast stable of daytime moisturizers with sunscreen. This formula has too many shortcomings to be considered “complete” and the moisture it supplies is not emollient, so it is a good option for those with normal skin, though truly “normal” skin is a rarity. Overall, this just isn’t as good as it could be, and as such isn’t worth strong consideration.

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.
