Olay Regenerist UV Defense regenerating lotion in SPF 50.
On my recent camping trip I took along this simple sunscreen in hopes of finding a new favorite. Here's what I thought:
When I first tried this sunscreen I was surprised that it seemed gritty. I read some other reviews and someone else commented on this as well. After you get over the gritty feel, the sunscreen works fairly well under makeup. I have used sunscreen before that seemed to not hold under foundation and literally turned it into goop. This one worked great. Oh and it doesn't smell bad. Actually, I think it's scent-free.
As for protection, I am happy to report it worked great. I was not in intense heat except for two days of my trip but I have to admit, I did work.
The pump is okay. There is nothing more annoying than waiting for a pump to work itself back up so you can pump more. I needed about 5 pumps for my face and neck and maybe a tad more. I kind of over do it with all lotions.
Overall, this is a great basic sunscreen with the benefits of anti-aging but it didn't over WOW me. I would only buy it again if it was on sale.
