Almost, but not quite complete
Olay Complete Defence comes in a hygienic pump bottle which makes the amount of product easy to dispense. I found the smell to quite sweet compared to the usual smell of sunscreen and found this a little off putting as I prefer non-scented products. However once the product is used on the face the scent is not as noticeable.
I found this really light yet moisturising compared to some SPF moisturisers that can leave my skin feeling a little dry, and did not need to use an additional moisturiser underneath. It went on well under makeup without making my skin feel oily or look shiny, although I do not usually have oily skin.
Using an SPF product is important to prevent skin damage and I am especially conscious of preventing this on my neck. This product meets my needs in terms of an adequate amount of protection (SPF 30+) and is moisturising, however I would probably not repurchase due to the scent and the fact that there are many other products available which also suit my needs.

It is affordable and a good option for those on a budget who are looking for a basic moisturiser with sun protection.
This lightly fragranced moisturiser is creamy to the touch and pleasant to use. When first applied, it absorbs readily and replenishes moisture my skin’s moisture with nourishing ingredients such as aloe, vitamin E and green tea extract, whilst protecting it from the harsh Australian sun.
It leaves my skin with a nice subtle glow, instead of leaving an oily sheen on my face like some moisturisers with sun protection. It is also recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation, which also puts my mind at ease that I am using a council approved product. This moisturiser comes in a hygienic 75ml pump bottle and overall, it performs quite well. It is affordable and a good option for those on a budget who are looking for a basic moisturiser with sun protection.It's also lightweight but it was greasy though this may be due to the 40 degree days that I’ve been having during this trial period.

Olay Complete Defence Daily UV Moisturising Lotion SPF 30+
My mother has been using Olay since I can remember, even from when it was called Ulan, so I knew it was a product worthy of trialing.
Beautyheaven gave me the wonderful opportunity to trial this product, so here are my thoughts.
- I love the fact the nozzle is lockable, I cannot stress how many times I have come home with a moistursier mishap in the bottom of my bag.
- Non greasy and lightweight moisturiser that sinks in beautifully to my skin.
- After a day at the Zoo in 33 degree heat and in the sun I didnt get sunburnt on the face at all after my morning application. So fantastic sun protection.
...and here comes the downfalls.
- Some of the active ingredients I wouldnt be comfortable using on my skin long term, also there seemed to be a lack of ingredients listed.
- There was a noticeably strong perfumed smell to the product which was quite prominent, which was also NOT listed on the product.
- I felt my skin got dry about midday which meant I had to re-apply the moisturiser AND makeup.

Good basic moisturiser
Let's start with the packaging. The bottle is a small convenient size with a twist lock pump. It is fairly simple packaging that states the name of the product and the SPF rating which is 30+. It is easy to travel with as the pump top locks so there is no leakage.
I found that one pump of this product was sufficient. So, although this is a small bottle, a little goes a long way.
I like that this moisturiser has an SPF of 30+. This is important to me to avoid premature signs of aging.
I don't have a problem with the smell but you could say it smells like sunscreen.
This moisturiser absorbed really well and I'm not left feeling greasy as long as I don't apply too much. It is a light moisturiser so if you like heavy creams, this probably isn't for you. It is ideal for under make up as it is light and isn't greasy. I have normal/dry skin that is prone to pimples and I found this didn't make me break out. It leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated and prevents the dry patches I usually get.
I would recommend this to those with dry/normal skin. Personally, I wouldn't use this if I had oily skin just because it does feel greasy if you apply the slightest bit too much.
I would definately re-purchase this product.

Perfect handbag addition for Summer
I was really impressed with this moisturiser. It has an SPF of 30+ and doesn't feel greasy upon application. It absorbed quickly into my skin and my skin felt hydrated. The 75ml size is perfect for popping into your handbag and applying again throughout the day. I apply my moisturiser on at 5:30am, when I step outside for lunch at 12:30pm I like to apply it again. I only need 2 pumps and it covers my entire face and neck area. It has a great lock feature which means that I don't get a gooey mess in my bag from it getting accidentally pumped. It is easy to apply make up over the top of this moisturiser, most moisturisers containing sunscreen don't mix well with foundation but the olay complete seemed to be a great base. The bottle is simple yet Olay chic and with a cute yellow lid its easy to locate in my handbag.

Firstly i would like to thank BH for the opportunity to try this product. My grandmother, Mother and sister in law all use the Olay range of products and they all have gorgeous skin so i was quite excited to trial the complete defense lotion.
I found the packaging to be quite summery and pleasant. Something that would catch your eye at this time of year. Upon opening the box my first impression was that the bottle was quite small and I was concerned about how long it would last.
Any concerns I had were soon nullified as this is a "wonder" product. The scent of the product is unmistakenly Olay. It is in no way offensive, nor does it have that thick sunscreen smell that many other spf moisturisers have. the product applies easily to the skin and requires very little working in. it does not leave a white sheen on the skin, and is virtually undetectable once applied. It did not leave me feeling like I was wearing a mask like other products do.
Coming to the end of the day i found my skin still felt soft to the touch and well hydrated. I perspire heavily and found the product was still on my skin even after a hot day.
Overall it is a product that I will use again and like my inlaws, I am now an Olay convert for life.

Olay Complete Defence Daily UV Moisturising Lotion SPF 30+
Here is my short and sweet review of the Olay Complete Defence Daily UV Moisturising Lotion SPF 30+ (I was sent this product to trial by BH)
Pros: Hygienic pump packaging, high UV rating, pleasantly scented.
Cons: No ingredient list on packaging (however, they did state active ingredient present and that it did contain aloe), made me look ghostly white in photos (think this is probably due to the sunscreen /SPF content), felt that it didn’t “sink” into my skin/ left me with a slight film of oil, maybe not suitable for those with sensitive eye areas.
Overall, I felt that this product was essentially a sunscreen with some moisturising ingredients added.
Perfect for: Those with normal to dry skin who are spending a day in the sun or work outdoors.
Repurchase?: I would not repurchase again as I would rather not use the active ingredients in this product unnecessarily i.e. as a daily moisturiser (I spend alot of my time indoors).

Great buy :)
I loved this moisturiser, I hadn't yet used olay as I was worried it wouldn't suit my skin as I thought it was better suited to more mature skin but after trialling this product I would definately be using this moisturiser again :) It was easy to dispense with a pump which pumps just the right amount for a full face application with 2 pumps, and left my skin feeling soft. It also has spf 30+ so not only did it leave my skin feeling great it also protected my skin. I did find it a little greasy to use at first but found if I left it for a few minutes it would soak in.

Excellent everyday moisturiser
I was given this to trial by BH and happily took it on as I have alot of faith in Olay products.
For the price of this moisturiser the 75mL pump bottle will no doubt go a long way and is good value for money. I use about a pump for my face and a pump for my neck. As far as moisturising goes this stuff is great, soaks in fast (so I dont have to wait too long to start with makeup) and leaves the skin feeling soft and hydrated without any shine or that greasy feeling that accompanies so many sunscreens. Another big factor for me is how well my makeup goes on with my moisturiser as a few have made it look a bit off, but this did not effect it in anyway.
Now, the most important thing - sun protection! I can't say I've exactly tried to bake myself outside to road test this stuff but have spent a good amount of time in the sun during the day and have not got burnt or tanned. At all. I burn so easily that some sunscreens seem to offer no protection to my skin, but this did not fail me. I'd be happy to rely on this to get my skin through summer and beyond.
I would purchase this for sure, it hasn't given me any reason not to. All day hydration and excellent sun protection for a really good price!
