In the 1950s, a South African chemist, Graham Wulff, began working on his own skin cream, looking for a solution for his wife Dinah. The ordinary skin care products available to women at that time were incredibly heavy and left the skin feeling greasy after application. Working with Dinah, Graham perfected a lightweight, silky moisturizer with a pleasing, feminine fragrance. By 1959, Graham was marketing his formula not only in South Africa, but also in the United States and Europe, marking the start of the Olay skin care brand.

Olay Customer ReviewsGreat - 4/18/2014 7:08:36 AM I have been using Nair products for years. With Nair I always ended up burnt if I left it on long enough to remove the hair. I tried electrolysis, but found it too painful. I tried the Olay product on a whim and am so happy. No burns and almost 100% hair removal.Immediate Results! - 1/2/2014 2:37:24 PM I just purchased this yesterday and have only used it last night and this morning. I have to say I am extremely surprised! I have spent literally thousands of dollars on expensive eye treatment products ranging from Elastiderm to Prevage to rid my undereye area of their fine lines and crepiness. I am 40 years old and look much younger than my age. However in the last year after going through a divorce and much crying, I noticed under my eyes had taken the toll for it. I only see the fine lines and crepiness when smiling, but it prevented me from wanting to smile at all... after a single day of use with this product I have already noticed a smoothing of the fine lines and the crepiness is nonexistent. I am not sure if this is just an initial reaction to the product or if it is truly my fountain of youth in a bottle. All I can say is so far so good. I will update my progress after having used it a little longer.Olay of course! - 12/14/2013 5:55:32 AM I have tried more expensive products to see what I am missing but always return to Olay. There does not seem to be anything better on the market for me.Great sun protection - 5/16/2012 4:35:28 AM I use this first thing ever morning and frequently during the day on my face, neck, decolletage and hands. I live in Tucson and am very careful to use sun protection all year long. This never feels greasy or heavy.Best present for mom - 2/19/2012 9:41:50 PM Wears it overnight and feels all soft and smooth in the morning. Loves it. Good value for money.Great product, easy to use and value for money - 2/5/2012 5:49:04 PM My skin complexion is much better than before, less oily on my t zone. The device is v light weight, can bring to travel esp it uses batteries, but the brush head is a bit rough, so do not press hard on yr face when u r washingBreaks me out - 12/20/2011 9:32:41 PM I think this stuff causes my hormonal acne to flare up. I would use it once a week and my skin would look red the next day. Maybe I am allergic to something in it.excellent eyecream even sensitive eyes - 7/29/2011 7:01:13 AM I have combination and very sensitive skin. This product absorbs quickly and smooth my skin.

This system offers a whole new level of cleaning and exfoliating. I bring it in the shower with me and use it on my face.. afterwards all the dead skin cells are gone and im GLOWING. can be harsh and abrasive on certain areas, so you'll need to be careful.

It allows for better absorption of cremes etc. Can't live with out it anymore.

With four highly effective lines, the collection offers something for every skin care need.

If you're looking for affordable solutions to your biggest skin care woes, the Olay collection is the answer.
One of the most familiar and well-loved skin lotions, Olay was originally formulated by a chemist named Graham Wulff in the late 1950s as a gift for his wife, Dinah. She had long been dissatisfied - as were many women at the time - with the available skin products; the thick, waxy formulas were uninspiring and not always effective. The Oil of Olay beauty fluid created by Wulff was a creamy liquid that spread smoothly on the skin and was quickly absorbed. The attractive pink shade and pleasant, mild scent also contributed to making Olay one of the great favorites of skincare lotions.
Since the year 2000, the name has been changed to just Olay and, as part of the Procter and Gamble family of products, has been expanded into an entire line of skin care formulas. While moisturizing and rehydrating are still a part of Olay's mission, other lines of products have also been developed, including firming serums, cleansers and peels, to provide a full range of options for skin care. The Olay products are also known for their purity and safety - yet the brand is famously part of an ongoing commitment to avoid animal testing. Using alternatives to the use of animals in research and testing, the makers of Olay products have reduced the use of animals by 99% - except in the very rare cases when it is necessary to meet government-mandated obligations. After more than 50 years, Olay continues to provide skin care needs for women around the world.
