I tried it ... Olay Total Effects

I recently ran out of a spendy facial moisturizer I had been using for a few months ... it was a generous gift from my mom-in-law, but unfortunately I can not seem to justify adding it to my family's budget. I was browsing the aisles of Target last week and spent some time reading bottles and packages of facial lotions, debating on prices and brands. I had finally decided to try Olay's Total Effects + Touch of Sun.
I am turning 31 this month (holla!) and while that age is NOT old, I can see that my skin is starting to show signs of aging. Those fine lines and wrinkles of mine become more apparent this time of year when the sun starts to come out. I don't usually wear sunglasses, so the extra squinting helps defines my lines a bit more. I wanted a moisturizer that was going to help minimize the appearance of these imperfections, as well as give my skin the daily hydration it craves. Olay claimed to do all these things AND add a little boost of color with a sunless tanner added to the mix. Sold!!
I have been using this product daily for the last 9 days and I am loving it!! I notice my complexion has evened out and has a nice glow to it. The lotion gets an A in the moisturization department, no greasy or oily feel and absorbs nicely. And while I don't believe a topical cream can erase the fine line and wrinkles I already have, maybe this lotion can help prevent new ones from appearing. I definitely think this is a product to try, especially if you are in the market for a new moisturizer. This one retails for around $23. I snagged it for under $20 on sale.
What are your thoughts? Do you use Olay products? What facial lotion do you swear by?

I've been looking for an inexpensive alternative to other stuff I've used and loved. Let me know how long it lasts. Are you using it day and night?
