What is the Difference Between Olay Facial Moisturizers - Serums, Lotions and Creams?

Finding just which Olay skin care regimen you need isn’t always easy, but knowing a little more about the different formulas and the benefits they provide should help.

Serums are lighter weight than creams or lotions and typically have higher concentration formulas designed to penetrate skin quickly and deliver intense results. They can be used alone or under another moisturizer.

Lotions have a medium consistency and are often preferred for daytime use as they are easily absorbed into the skin. They can be used alone or over a serum and tend to be good for oily or combination skin.

Creams are richer and thicker than lotions and serums. They work well for people with dry or mature skin as they add moisture and help reduce further water loss by helping the skin to maintain its natural moisture barrier. Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream and Olay Total Effects Anti-Aging Moisturizer are our most popular daily creams.
