I started using Olay Definity Color Recapture about 3 months ago, and I have really noticed a change in my skin when I use it. Its a bit pricey, but I recived it as a gift, cause all my friends know what an Olay fan I am.

It goes on very easy & smooth, not greasy or thick like some. I use it in place of my normal foundation. It may be used alone or under your favorite makeup. It erases any uneven tones you may have on your face, redness,   and any brown spots. 

It leaves your skin with a nice clean look. Its anti-aging, which I love. It has a UV moisturizer, and spf 15, for those days in the sun.  I dont think I will ever buy foundation agian, this is all I need. Leaves my face feeling and looking like I hired a makeup artist, but I did it myself. Its from Olay which is a brand I love and trust, and they have a long line of fabulous products.

I suggest using Olay Recapture as a foundation, under your makeup, youll get great coverage, and smooth clear results. No need for any other foundation.

The Olay Definity Color Recapture Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer was not that great for my skin there was a lot of problems I encountered when using this product. The moisturizer comes in a plastic pump bottle it has a swirl of white cream, and the other half is a skin tone color tint. This is suppose to even out skin tone, sunspots, help fight wrinkles, and brighten the skin, but I saw none of that I think that is way to much to ask for all in one product. I used one pump of the moisturizer, and applied it to my face in the morning. I noticed right away it is to dark for my skin tone it was more of an orange tint. It did absorb fast in my skin, and left me hydrated at first, but then I felt greasy throughout the day I was very oily looking in my t-zone area which is not normal for my dry skin type. It also settled into my pores which became clogged I did have a few breakouts a few days after. By the end of the day the color of the tint became patchy it was not covering my skin much. This moisturizer did have shimmer particles which is what was making me looking extra shiny. I am not happy with this expensive product I would not repurchase it again.

Evens out my skin tone.

By 

from Elko, Nevada

Comments about Olay Definity Color Recapture Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer:

I saw a commercial on the tv for this Olay Definity Color Recapture Anti-Aging Moisturizer and I went on a mission to all of the stores around town until I was able to find it. I really liked that the commercial told me that it would help even out all of my skin tones and also moisturize my skin. I have always had very uneven skin tones on my face for as long as I can remember and I have tried numerous products over the years to try and correct this and even out all of the dark and light areas on my face to make them blend and be one color. I started using this and I did not notice a big difference at first, so I decided to give it some time. I took a picture on day one and another one on day thirty and all I have to say is WOW! It is such a huge difference. I had noticed it myself but I really noticed it when I took the pictures and looked at them side by side. I had so many dark spots that are now blended in well and all my skin is a lot more even than it used to be. I use this everyday to maintain this and it keeps on getting better and my skin is glowing and radiant because of it.

Olay Definity Color Recapture Anti-Aging UV moisturizer

By 

from USA

Comments about Olay Definity Color Recapture Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer:

I use the Olay Definity Color Recapture Anti-Aging UV moisturizer and it has to be the best anti-aging product out there. It makes my skin firmer and it reduces fine lines on my face. It also helps to keep new wrinkles from coming out which most products hardly ever do. I started using it a while ago and there is so much difference compared to when I was not using it. It is very easy to use and it smells so good. Also it is very easy to spread and absorbs very quickly into the skin. It may seem a little bit expensive but it is better to spend the money on what works than on what does not. Olay has very good and effective products in the market and this particular product is one of them. I have recommended it to my friends every time they asked what product I used and they all have come to like it as much as I do. If you are looking for a new anti-aging moisturizer to try, I highly recommend this one and I know would like it.

Great product, but expensive

By 

from USA

Comments about Olay Definity Color Recapture Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer:

I really like Olay Definity Color Recapture Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer. I use it instead of foundation most days. It is great about evening out the skin tones on my face.

What I don't like about it is the price. It is quite expensive compared to your normal foundations. But if you look at it as your moisturizer/foundation/sun screen, the price is about right.

Absorption
Olay Definity Color Recapture Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer provides a light coverage that I use instead of foundation. It provides a good coverage. Light, but complete.

Doesn't Clog Pores
I have oily skin (yes, people with oily skin still need to use a moisturizer). I have been using this for about 6 months, and it has not caused any breakouts.

Effectiveness
I find this product to be very effective. It is nice to use one product in place of three that I used before. Even if it is a little more expensive, I'll keep using it. I'm a fan of Oil of Olay products anyway, this is just another great product on their roster.

nice product and good price

By

Comments about Olay Definity Color Recapture Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer:

I have very dry and sensitive skin so i need a moisturizer that is thick enough to add moisture but not cause breakouts. I decided to try Olay Definity Color Recapture Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer because i have tried Olay products in the past. This moiturizer is great... It is a mixture of a serum, plus a tinted moisturizer, plus a lotion, which makes my face routine much easier beacuse i only have to apply one product compared to 3.

The tinted moisturizer mixed with the serum adds a nice glow to the skin, mkaing you look radiant and refreshed. The lotion is not heavy and absorbs into skin very easily without leaving a cakey look.

The consistency of the lotion is thick enough that it moisturizes my skin but is not at all greasy so it did not cause me any breakouts.

I would definitely recommend Olay Definity Color Recapture Anti-aging UV Moisturizer if you are looking for a light coverage lotion that evens skintone and adds a glow.

Comments about Olay Definity Color Recapture Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer:

I would recommend this product only to people who don't require much coverage, especially during the hot summer months. Because any amount greater than one pump of Olay Definity Color Recapture Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer tends to look rather orange, I would suggest using the least amount possible and blending out everything with a sponge or brush and setting it with a translucent powder.

This product is essentially a tinted moisturizer, with less than excellent coverage. The lightest shade available for this product s a bit too dark for my skin. I can get away with it in the summer if and when I don't have many blemishes to hide, but this is impossible to use in the winter.

Ultimately, this product has very average performance and cannot even be used at certain times. I suppose people could use this as a primer though. Because this product is not very versatile, I will not be buying again.

Good moisturizer and makeup primer all in one!

By 

from New Cumberland, PA

Comments about Olay Definity Color Recapture Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer:

I love this product. It's smooth and creamy. The one thing I really love about it is that it is a makeup primer, sunscreen, moisturizer and illuminator all in one product! The makeup primer is light enough that you can hardly tell you are wearing makeup. Many people have complemented on how great my skin looks and that my skin glows. This product is more expensive but I think it is totally worth it. Also, one pump goes a long way and will cover your entire face. I have sun spots from my younger years all around my eyes and with one pump, I can cover my entire face and hide those spots. I recommend you Give it a try, I highly recommend it!

Nice but over priced

By 

from Longwood, FL

Comments about Olay Definity Color Recapture Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer:

I like Olay products, but not crazy about the color effect. Moisturizer is good. Price is bad.

Absorption
All Olay products are good moisturiers, the absorption of this is not so good , maybe because of the color.

Doesn't Clog Pores
The color seems to clog the pores some.

Effectiveness
Love the anti aging effect and moisture.

Olay Definity color recapture - tinted moisturizer

By 

from Palm Coast, FL

Comments about Olay Definity Color Recapture Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer:

Olay Definity has really done well with the color recapture. I use this all the time in place of heavy makeup. It's my new favorite product for everyday. It also will keep brightening your skin everyday you wear it. It's a fantastic beauty product and with only one step you get great coverage and moisturizer with spf."

 

The things I really like about it is it blends in well and quickly . Its more creamy than typical foundation so you want to make sure your face is dry when you put it on and try and work quickly so you get it blended well before it starts to dry .

 

Try not to retouch because once its dry adding more will make the first batch come off . Be sure and keep away from your eyes because it will really burn if it get in .

Sometimes I like to use a foundation primer with this because you will get a even finish but Im not sure that will work with all primers . I use Smash-box photo finish .

I have tried a bunch of different kinds of tinted moisturizers but they all see to be the wrong color or do not provide adequate coverage . The Olay Definity color recapture is better at this because you do get a nice coverage without the heavy feel .

 

That all being said I was not crazy about it when I first got it because I was over blending it and my face was not exfoliated as well as it should have been. a little goes a long way  . If you are going to use it be sure your face is exfoliated or you may see small patches where the dry areas look a bit patchy . Its hard to explain but its almost like the cream gets under a dry patch and gives you that scabby look which was why I was not thrilled about it first off . I also use the primer because that will close the pores and not allow any cream to give you those white pin points when the cream is applied

If you follow these ideas you will find this is truly a great product

Great moisturizer and natural coverage

By 

from Kaysville, UT

Comments about Olay Definity Color Recapture Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer:

I bought this not for the anti-aging claims, but because I'm prone to breakouts and wanted some moisturizer and foundation that didn't cause acne.  It's been great for that.  It feels very light on my skin and doesn't feel caked-on at all.

As for the anti-aging claims, if I had bought it for the purpose of reducing wrinkles, I think I would be disappointed.  But I continue to buy it because it feels good and does the job of preventing dry skin.

The packaging is great!  Not only is it cool to see the two swirls, but you know exactly how much you have left and not a drop goes to waste.  It's not as expensive as many other moisturizers, but still it's nice to get you money's worth.

You may still want to cover with some powder.  The tint is very subtle, even though I bought a darker shade than my skin.  And it's a little shiny, but easy to cover with a light coat of powder.

I would recommend this to anyone with problem skin, but not if you're hoping to turn back time.
