That way, they won’t run into the eye and irritate it—which regular moisturizers can do.<br /><br /><b>Tips:</b><br /><br /><ul><li>Night time is an especially good time to treat this delicate area, as skin is more receptive at night.</li><li>Gently massage eye products into the skin around the eyes.</li><li>As you treat and care for the skin around your eyes, remember to always protect your skin with an SPF product during the day.</li></ul> <br />Why not take a look at a couple of our best-selling eye moisturizersspecifically designed to care for your eyes:<br /><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwolaycom/en-us/skin-care-products/olay-eyes-ultimate-eye-perfecting-cream">Olay Ultimate Eye Cream</a><br /><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwolaycom/en-us/skin-care-products/regenerist-eye-lifting-serum">Regenerist Eye Lifting Serum</a> question 0 1 1 create 7443873 Is Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream a night cream or day cream? 2017-01-31T17:32:40Z 2017-01-31T17:32:40Z Olay diego_schapira <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwolaycom/en-us/skin-care-products/regenerist-micro-sculpting-cream-moisturizer">Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream</a>&nbsp;can be used during the day or at night.

The number printed in the jar shows how long, in months, the product will keep for after it has been opened.&nbsp;<br /><br />For example, if 12M is printed in the jar symbol, you should use the product within 12 months of opening it.<br /><br /><img src="" title="Image:" /> question 0 1 1 create 7443686 What is the shelf life or expiration date of Olay skin care products? 2017-01-31T13:16:37Z 2017-01-31T13:16:37Z Olay diego_schapira There is a difference between expiration date and recommended shelf life, and you may notice that some of our Olay skin care products don't have an expiration date.<br /><br /><b>For products with an expiration date:</b><ul><li>The expiration date will be printed on the container's label and outer carton&nbsp;</li><li>If stored properly, the ingredients will provide their full benefit until the expiry date</li><li>After the expiration date the product may not be effective</li><li>You should not use the product after the expiry date</li></ul>&nbsp;<br /><b>For products without an expiration date:</b>&nbsp;<ul><li>Most unopened Olay products have a shelf life of 2-3 years from the date of manufacture</li><li>If stored longer than the recommended shelf life, perfume may dissipate or preservatives may not last and the product could become off-color<br /></li><li>If the product is beyond the shelf life, it is still safe to use; however, we recommend to replace it to ensure best performance</li></ul><br />We recommend storing Olay skin care products in a cool dry place and out of direct sunlight.

Silica is like 'purified sand' and gently exfoliates the skin whilst being environmentally sustainable.&nbsp;While microbeads are completely safe for people, and part of an enjoyable product use experience, we understand there is a growing preference for us to remove this ingredient.<br /><br />The products which contained (plastic) microbeads in the past and no longer do so are listed below and started shipping into stores in September 2016:<br /><br /><ul><li>Olay Total Effects Age Defying Face wash</li><li>Olay Anti-Wrinkle Face wash</li><li>Olay Regenerist Skin Perfection Cleanser</li></ul><br />Note: Until the products that contain microbeads are out of stock in stores, both may be available on the shelves. question 0 1 1 create 7415383 What is the difference between Olay Day cream & Night cream? 2017-01-06T16:40:52Z 2017-01-06T16:40:52Z Olay diego_schapira Are you wondering what the difference is between Olay day cream and night cream?

For those products, we only use amounts within the safe ranges established by scientific and regulatory agencies.<br /><br />Click here to <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//uspgcom/our-brands/product-safety/ingredient-safety/preservatives/parabens">learn more about parabens.</a> question 0 1 1 create 7385008 Do Olay creams contain retinol? 2016-12-12T10:18:15Z 2016-12-12T10:18:15Z Olay diego_schapira Our cosmetic products do not contain Retinol or Retin-A which is sometimes used as a prescription drug to fight acne and skin aging. <br /><br />However they do contain Pro-Retinol which is a patented Olay form of vitamin A. It will be listed in the ingredient list as Retinyl Propionate. Pro-Retinol improves the appearance of sun-damaged skin by reducing the look of fine lines, wrinkles, roughness, and blotchiness (age spots). It can be used in greater concentration than Retinol. question 0 1 1 create 7383471 How do I sign up to Olay Club? 2016-12-09T15:25:47Z 2016-12-09T15:25:47Z Olay diego_schapira Simply follow this link and create your Olay profile:<br /><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwolaycouk/en-gb/createprofilepage"></a><br /><br />Once signed up, get ready for skin care tips, skin care product routines, regimen advice and much more.
