I have very very dry skin that flakes and itches without moisturizer. I have tried every type of face cream, everything from department stores to sephora... but I never stuck with just one. The while I was on vacation, i forgot my laura mercier moisturizer at home, so I went to the drugstore and grabbed the first cream that said deep hydration. I used to never trust drugstore face cream, but after using olay regenerist deep hydration... I will never use anything else! It the first cream that I have stuck with for over 6 months. my skin glows and has NEVER looked this good. I loooove this product!! It is really unbelievable the difference in my skin. I wish they made larger bottles of it!

I've been using the Olay Deep Hydration Regenerating Cream for more than 10 years. I have loved and told all my friends about this lotion. Well, it was time to purchase another jar, and I saw where the box said it was an "improved" formula. I was hesitant, but after using this specific Olay product for over TEN YEARS, I thought to myself, there's no way they'd mess with success. Few times in my life have I been this wrong.

So I'm not just a beginner here. As long as I've used this product, this is a seasoned opinion/review of the new formula compared to the original:

1. The consistency is thinner and not as creamy, and it just doesn't feel as good when you apply it.

2. It leaves my skin feeling slick and greasy instead of soft and moisturized. It makes the skin so slick and greasy that I had to wash my hands after applying it to my face because items were actually slipping out of my grip while they were still in my hands. Truly, I'm not exaggerating here.

3. It starts peeling off after a couple hours. So if you scratch the skin on your face, there will be some under your fingernails. Or if you rub the skin on your face too hard, there will be little balls of it on your fingers. When I emailed Olay to complain about the new formula, their very friendly reply said that this could happen if you apply too much of the cream. Well guys, I applied the same amount of the original formula for over a decade, and I never had that problem before.

4. It STINKS! So ok, I've smelled worse things in my life. But compared to the original formula, it stinks!

In a world full of products that constantly feel the need to change or update, I thought Olay was the one product I could depend on. If they wanted to offer an improved version of the Regenerating Cream, I thought at the very least they'd have enough sense and COURTESY to their customers to offer both versions of it. Olay has multiple different product lines, and within each product line, they've got the day cream, the night cream, the cleanser, and so on. So why couldn't they have kept the original Regenerating Cream and released the new formula as the Regenerating "Pro" Cream? Would that have been so hard?

I'm even willing to admit that there are probably people in the world that DO like the new formula. But again, where is the courtesy to longtime customers like myself (and many others from the reviews I've been reading) who like the original formula? And the new formula might, in fact, really be an "improved" formula that's better for your skin. But whatever the new pros may be, the cons far outweigh them. At least in my opinion.

On a side note, I bought the Equate store-brand version of the Olay Regenerating Cream. It's nowhere near as good as the original formula, but it's MUCH better than the new formula. And that's just sad. But until I find another product I like as well as the original formula, I'm going to use the store brand. For all I know though, the store brand is still basing its ingredients on the original formula at the moment. So the store brand might also be a problem at some point in the future. But unless Olay decides to start offering the original Regenerating Cream formula again, it's even more sad that they've lost an over-a-decade-long, devoted customer.

        Comments about Olay Regenerist Deep Hydration Regenerating Cream, 1.7 fl oz:

        Wow! I thought it was only me who had problems with this "new and improved" (yeah, right) new version. I've been a faithful user of the Perfecting Cream for a long time, and recommended it to many of my friends...but no more. This new version smelled bad, was way thinner, and peeled right off my face before I could put my foundation on. So disappointing. I had to scramble and find a new daytime cream, and ended up using a Lumene product. Not half as good as the old Regenerist Perfecting cream, but at least it feels and smells good, and doesn't peel off. Bring back the old version PLEASE, Olay!

            I have used this product for years and LOVED it. However they have changed it. It smells strong and is greasy on my skin. I only buy the old version<if I can find it. Look for the white top,not the black top new stuff. Go back to the way it was Olay!

                  Comments about Olay Regenerist Deep Hydration Regenerating Cream, 1.7 fl oz:

                  This used to be the best moisturizer I had ever used. I LOVED it! It was even better than many things I had paid $150 for. Getting me to use a drugstore brand is difficult, but this was great...

                  I had purchased and used at least 15 of these- and they lasted forever. When I used the last one, I ran out and bought another one. With this new one, the way it feels now is like teflon. It feels like a coating of odd, greasy, unnatural stuff that dries to a gross granularly feel on your skin. It feels fake and dangerous now. Before it was a dream. It was moist and soaked into skin, leaving it barely dewy all day. I used it alone or under foundation or powder. Now, even alone, it feels like I have been to the beach and have a dusting of sand on my skin.

                  Why did they do this to my favorite moisturizer? I am returning this. The "improvement" probably makes it cheaper to produce for Olay. Don't buy the new product.

                    Love this product because it absorbs quickly and completely, leaving my skin noticeably softer and smoother. While not cheap in cost, it lasts a long time since you use such a small amount.

                    P.S.--I'm a desert rat and gardener who's 55, yet people ask what I use. This product delivers.

                                Am impressed by the Regenerist line. Like the niacinamide and would like to see the peptides higher on the ingredient list. I really liked this cream but could not get past the scent. When will Olay stop heavily scenting their face creams? Had to return this but would buy again if they made it fragrance free.

                                    too heavy perfume smell that not only irritated my eyes but contributed to a headache... do not recommend for those who are perfume sensitive.
                                    Also drugstore does not have a return policy if you find you are sensitive to a new product. They allow return 1x only.
