Oil of Olay moisturizer?

Post by gringal on Thu Aug 09, 2018 11:40 am

Walmart used to carry it, but haven't seen it recently. I've checked the drug stores but can't find it there. Anyone know where it's in stock? I've used it for years and would hate to go seeking a substitute now! Shocked

Olay, originally ulan, is a made-up word. You cannot squeeze it to get any kind of oil.  "Oil of Olay", now more truthfully just "Olay", with no meaning at all, is a concoction of water and glycerine.

Yeah, yeah RV...whatever. Point being that I've used the stuff for decades; I like the way it works and it agrees with my skin....so I want some more.
lol!

RV, there is no explaining a wonan’s devotion to certain creams, shampoos, lotions, and potions. We like certain ones and that is it.

But, if you have to make your own, it is nice to know what ingredients to use.
Oh well........

Some women make their own. More do not. Some just smear coconut oil all over. Never the twain shall meet.

There is nothing nicer than a wahini smelling of coconut oil. Now, if I could just remember why. It was so long ago. scratch

Oh yeah. I want an oily surface to greet the world with...not.

"Do it yourself" is not an option here. For one thing, there's fourteen lines of ingredients in very fine print on the container, some of which are a mystery to me.

This reminds me of the threads where the OP asks where to find a restaurant with a certain dish and someone responds by offering a recipe for making it at home.

Amazon MX carries a bunch of Olay products and have had the moisterizer.

Gringal, I gave up on finding that product the first year I was here. I'm amazed you've found it this long. You're to be commended for perseverance.

Agree with Marrell, Amazon! Or, Mercado Libre or Amazon MX. Suerte.

Great comment, RV!

I just read a post on TOB that you can get it in two day shipment from Amazon Mexico.
