OLAY Natural White Fairness Day + Night Creme Review

By 6/24/2013 10:49:00 pm

Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to the ol' Olay Natural White Fairness Day + Night Creme. Hmmmgghh, quite a splendid start, isn't it? Or rather loud and silly, I would say :)

Anyway, I didn't pay much attention to skincare, like.. NOT AT ALL. My whole routine was to just rub my face with the oldie but goodie Clean&Clear Daily Pore Cleanser (which I will review very soon), and sometimes as a special treat: mud or peel mask. However, due to a heart-breaking *crocodile tears* (which I hate to mention, but y'all understand me, right? We all have secrets to keep, and to make others mad at our not telling them heh?) I began to pay a little tiny bit more on my skin. That was when I stumbled upon this Olay product.

Here in Vietnam we don't have many choices, especially for a student's pocket, so I was allured by these skincare products which are quite affordable. I don't just rub the cream on the back of my hand and say it's a nice one. For me, only things that really work are worth mentioning.

The Olay Natural White Fairness Night Creme comes in two different formulas: Normal and Rich. Here let me show you the two as I've used up the Normal and now I'm experiencing the Rich *If I was a rich girl, na na, na na, na na, na na na na, na na, na na na, see, I'd have all the money in the world if I was a wealthy girl - Gwen Stefani, aaah I loved that song*

The Normal Formula:
The Rich Formula:

What the company claims: 
Nourishes your skin with nutrients while you sleep for a healthy-looking natural fairness that glows.Olay natural white healthy fairness night cream is specially designed to give your skin, nutrients at night for a healthy-looking natural fairness that glows.
Its formula with triple nutrient system-vitamin B3,PRO-b5 and  E nourishes your skin while you sleep to reduce the appearance of dark spots and dullness. Resulting in a healthy looking natural fairness that glows every morning.
I do find that there's no obvious difference between the two formulas, and the effect / feel is really similar.
  • Packaging: 50g each, in a sheer white container with silvery white cap.
  • Consistency: both cream are neither thick nor runny, let's say... they're creamy (what??? LOL). They absorb to the skin quickly and leave a very moisturizing feel on the skin. As what the company says, they do have a nice moisturizing property, make the skin soft, smooth and almost baby-skin touch.
  • Color: the Normal is just white but the Rich is slightly pink.
  • Smell: I cannot really describe it, the creme has a nice pleasant faint scent to it. It is definitely chemical, but in a good way, yumm.
  • Ingredients: I could just find the complete list of ingredients for the Rich formula unfortunately, but it is likely that they both are similar. 
water, glycerin, niacinamide, isohexadecane, butylene glycol,dimethicone, isopropyl isostearate, sorbitan stearate, cetyl alcohol, sucrose polycottonseedate, panthenol, tocopheryl acetate, stearyl alcohol, carbomer, dimethiconol, benzyl alcohol, ethylparaben, fragrance, peg-100 stearate, propylparaben, sodium hydroxide, stearic acid, disodium edta, acrylates/c10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer, sucrose cocoate, hydroxyisohexyl 3-cyclohexene carboxaldehyde, linalool, butylphenyl methylpropional, benzyl salicylate, alpha-isomethyl ionone, morus alba root extract, ammonium polyacrylate, milk lipids, citrus grandis (grapefruit) fruit extract, crataegus cuneata fruit extract, pyrus malus (apple) fruit extract, zizyphus jujuba fruit extract, lilium candidum bulb extract, ceramide 3, citrus aurantifolia (lime) juice, citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) juice, citrus medica limonum (lemon) juice, ci 77891, ci 19140, ci 16035.

So far I've been loving these, which is quite self-explanatory as I used up one and now using the second, and still in love. I really like the feel it leaves on my skin, the smell, the perfect consistency and how soft my skin feels the morning after. I don't personally think it whitens my face, which I don't at all expect, but for the moisture it gives, I do like and recommend this.

Now to the Olay Natural White Fairness Night Creme. I bought it several weeks ago but I may say that I, again, like it. I do have extremely oily skin, however it does not mean that my face does not need care and moisture. I'm no skincare expert, but as I've heard, the face has so much oil *blegh* because it needs oil to moisture the skin. Furthermore, now I'm working on an air-conditioned room, means I need to take skincare to a more serious level. I bought it in a tiny 20g tube to test it out first before getting a full size.


What the company claims:
Contains Olay’s Triple Vitamin System to nourish skin with the essential vitamins – B3, Pro-B5 and E to moisturise, protect and reduce the appearance of dark spots and dullness for a healthy-looking natural fairness that glows from within. 

Recommended for people with Dry to Normal skin type. 

Key Benefits of Triple Vitamin System: 

-Lightens overall skin tone by reducing melanin transfer to surface of skin 
-Reduces appearance of dark spots 
-Increases skin cell renewal to lighten for radiant looking skin 
-Provides anti-oxidant protection 
-Keeps skin well moisturised 

  • Packaging: 20g each, in a white squeeze tube with silvery white cap.
  • Consistency: again neither thick nor runny. It absorbs to the skin quickly and interestingly, leaves a white powdery cast at first but then quickly disappears finish. I suppose it is for oil control? It does not feel greasy at all, but at the same time lightly moisturizes the skin.
  • Color: simply white
  • Smell: quite similar to the night cream's.
  • Ingredients:
Water, Glycerin, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Niacinamide, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate copolymer, Isopropyl Isostearate, Isohexadecane, Octocrylene, Phenylbenzimidazole Sulfonic Acid, Polyethylene, Triethanolamine, Stearyl Alcohol, Benzyl Alcohol, Panthenol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Cetyl Alcohol, Behenyl Alcohol, Sucrose Polycottonseedate, Polysorbate 60, Carbomer, Ethylparaben, Fragrance, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ectearyl Glucoside, Methylparaben, PEG-100 Stearate, Propylparaben, Disodium EDTA, Stearic Acid, Butylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Ammoniujm Polyacrylate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Milk Lipids, Morus Alba Root Extract, Coix Lacryma-Jobi Ma-Yuen Seed Extract, CEramide 3, CI 77891, CI 19140.

By far I do love all the three products and highly recommend them. Tell me what you think! x
