Most Helpful Positive Review skin was soft the next morning !
I've been using night and the red one (forgot what it's called) and it's only been about a week.. my skin is improving SO much, my dark spots are almost gone, my skin is soft to the touch, I have no open pores, no blackheads on my checks, and my face is more plump.. it was hard to find a before picture because I wasn't the photogenic type but now I can't wait to see my skin in the sun, using olay has really boosted my confidence 1000%
Most Helpful Critical Review I'll start off by...
I'll start off by saying when you initially apply this moisturizer, it feels great. But, when it starts to dry down, the feeling turns to a powdery but greasy feeling that I don't enjoy. It is also fragrance free, which I do like. The next day, if I touch my face at all, The product pills off my face and it looks like I have skin flakes everywhere. I've had another Olay moisturizer that did this and it was the reason I stopped using it. I will not continue to use this product. I got this free to review from influenster and I'm so happy I got to try it before I bought it.

I'm 27 years old and I have combination skin, and starting to develop fine lines on my forehead, under my eyes, and neck. I researched retinol use for hours and I decided that I would give it a try. In my research, a dermatologist does not recommend to use retinol more than 1-2 times a week in your 20s, 2-4 times in 30s, 3+ in 40s and so on. I of course had to test the research and I applied it 3 nights in a row and I experienced burns and peeling, especially under my eyes. So I went go back to the recommended once a week until my skin becomes more adapted to the product. I currently have been using this for a month now, and I do see improvement in my skin and fine lines! My skin looks more vibrant and toned. I am very pleased with my results so far, and I do recommend this product. But use it wisely and sparsely, and probably not every night like I did in the very beginning. Lol! :)
So far so good
Jules from NA
I have only used this product a few times so I can't say if it works or not, but I will say it feels wonderful on the skin, it hasn't broke me out or caused any reactions. I have sensitive skin, but this is working fine so far.
100% waste of money
KC from TN
100% waste of money. If I could give this 0 stars I would. This moisturizer does that extremely annoying thing where, when you put it on after a serum, it balls up and rolls off. Literally a complete waste of money. Would never recommend this product to anyone. I really wish I could get my money back. THIS poor quality is why I stick to high dollar brands. I may be spending more money but at least I'm not wasting it. Thanks Olay.

Nightly use has benefited my skin, No significant fragrance. Absorbs quickly, not shiny.
Will buy again and again
Mich from CT
So happy I was able to buy this in a travel size since I hate spending money on skincare that does not work. Best drugstore night moisturizer ever. I will definitely buy this again. After one use I noticed a difference in the fine lines around my eyes. After a week of use my skin is so much more even and "plumper". Bonus that it's also fragrance free
By far the best I've ever used
Darla from Texas
I love love love this product. I'm so addicted to it I can't go to bed without it! I've been using for two months and my face looks amazing! No, I don't work for this company. Highly recommend it!! Even my 28 yr old son likes it and so does my 30 yr old daughter!
Burned My Face
Dee from Texas
I really wanted to like this product. But for me personally, it burned then peeled my face. It took over a week to recover. I do not have tender skin.
Emirate1975 from New York, NY
Recently, I started using this moisturizer along with the olay wrinkle correction serum or deep hydration serum. Three months use of the serums and the recent use of the night cream, has given me brighter and even skin tone and less noticeable fine lines. I noticed that the use of serums with moisturizers gives good results. Lastly, I can't help but notice that the olay retinol 24 moisturizer has the look, feel and consistency of pudding.
Keh25 from New York, NY
I've used this 4 times so far and already see an improvement on my forehead fine lines and reduced lines/tighter skin between my eyebrows. It has no smell and feels very light on my skin which I love. This is my first time using a retinol based product (I am 25) and am very happy I started using this! Already thinking about buying another when this runs out (but a lot comes in the jar so it should last a while). I also did a lot of research and the ingredient combination looks great. I definitely recommend!
Great For Some; Not So Much for Me.
TC19 from Los Angeles, CA
I bought two jars of this for my Mother and I to try as we have both heard of how great the product is. My Mother absolutely loves the cream. I, on the other hand, developed skin burn that has been flaking and peeling off after three nights of use. I suddenly have wrinkles under my eyes that were never apparent before, and am not sure if they'll go away once the damage from the product wears off. My skin is dry and painful to the touch, and I can't put any-thing else on my face because of how much damage it caused to my face. If you have sensitive skin, think twice before trying this product. There have been a couple of other brands that have burned my skin, but nothing to this extent after just three uses. I am giving it two stars solely because my Mum really liked it, but for me, it's sadly a one-star product.
Absolutely will continue to buy
Kaeli from Texas
I use this at night after I clean my face, and my face after one week has a different look and feel already! This product is so lightweight, not greasy whatsoever! I look in the mirror and notice my skin is glowing and pores aren't visible anymore!! I'm hoping my dark spots disappear next haha!
annabanana from Illinois
Olay is the best drugstore and mid-range price point for skincare products. This did not disappoint. I was a prestige skincare rep for several years and Olay is the brand I go to now (I used to get high end products for free). The only drawback to Olay Retinol 24 moisturizer is jar packaging. Jars don't keep ingredients stable for very long after opening. Hence, I've been buying the smaller trial size to limit efficacy compromise. A little does go a long way. Don't forget to use it on your neck too!
Dried out my skin
All dried up from Long Island, New York
I used the Olay Regenerist for 3nights on my face and neck. I felt slight burning to my face. By day two my face was very dry and my chin had three small openings on the skin. I also developed a neck rash. Beautiful jar but no good for my skin.
Sabrina from Miami
I bought this item a week ago and I absolutely love it. It makes my skin feel so soft and it has already started to help with my acne scars. I use it at night after a simple face wash and it works wonders. I would stay away from mixing harsh chemicals with it though because of the retinol.
Continue or not
Y.K. from LA
The direction says, Massage over face and neck. However, it pills and flacky like small pieces of clay dough after a few stroke.
Otherwise, it gives soft feeling after I dusted off the messy things.
Is there any way without pulling stuff I continue to use?
Left my skin dry, flaky and powdery
Mall from Raleigh, NC
I have been using olay product for about a decade now, without much complain. But a few applications of this product left my skin extremely dry and flaky. I also didn't like the powdery feeling after the application. The skin doesn't seem to absorb the product. Disappointed with olay. Time to change my skincare products it seems.
True down to earth experience
Dody from Harrah, Oklahoma
I bought this product 1 month ago. I am 62 years old and would like to look in the mirror and not look wore down. When I apply the Olay Regenerist Retinol24 night face moisturizer, it makes my face feel smooth. I do not see any powdery residue or flakes from it. It goes on smooth and is no way greasy. I will have to use it a little longer to give an even better rating so I can check out the fading of dark spots and decreased wrinkles. So far, so good.
Love how it feels
Special K from Massachusetts
I've been using this for a few years now and I love the way it feels. My skin feels so smooth after I apply it. I can't tell you how many people that can't believe I'm 60 yrs old. Wouldn't use any other product but OLAY!!
Great ingredients, but it stays on the skin
Nicole Toronto from Toronto, ON
I'm using Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream with Hyaluronic Acid for Extra-Dry Skin (also fragrance-free) but I wanted to try this cream because I think the ingredients in the product are better. Neutrogena as soon as you apply it to the face the product is absorbed right away and just disappears into the skin, while this cream just sits on the skin and does not absorb well. Just began using it a few days ago so I can not speak on the results yet.
Please research how retinol works
L from AZ
I have been using this daily for 3 weeks and my skin has never been better. I am in my early 30's and wished I had thought of using retinol before. Its very important that you use a full spf moisturizer if you are going outside. I only use cetaphil cleanser and moisturizer to make sure im not using too many active ingredients. You will experience flaking by design. Much more effective than the scrubs I had been using. Never going back to physical exfoliants again.
Wonderful product my skin is brighter, softer since using it

ladyzen from Long Island NY
This is the first Olay product I did n to care for. It lacks the richness of the other Olay moisturizers.
Other bad reviewers clearly don't understand retinol
Jazz from NJ
I've been using this for about a week and half... yes I'm getting flaky skin and some irritated areas because this is RETINOL. Retinol literally forces new cells to turn over. If you do not get irritated it's not doing it's job. Your skin will get used to it after a few weeks and you'll be very thankful. Research retinol and it's benefits, retinol and vitamin c are the best for your skin care routine.
Skin is so smooth
Morggy from Grand Rapids, MI
This is my first time using retinol (I'm 26 years old) after I was advised to include it in my skincare routine after my first skin specialist appointment. The first week after using is, my skin was so incredibly smooth and soft, I told everyone about it. I have an oily T-zone but I do see that this cream tends to dry out my chin area and around my mouth, so after it sets in, I put the Tula 24/7 moisturizer on and I haven't had any dry issues since. I use this retinol cream after I wash my face and apply The Ordinary Zinc + Niacinamide serum. It truly does wonders to your skin, I'm currently on my second bottle and will continue to use it. One day I may upgrade to the MAX retinol cream that Olay offers, but not until I think my skin will be able to handle it!
Poor night moisturizer
Bren77 from Texas
I purchased this a month ago wanting to make a change from a more expensive brand. Bad choice. I really wanted to like it and gave it a full month, but it did not moisturize my skin well. It goes on nice and smooth, but i would wake up feeling like i put nothing on the night before. I guess you get what you pay for, and even then, this product is still too pricey for the results it gives.
