Beautyknot ~ My Skin Care Diary

Archive for January 13th, 2009


This is my staple day moisturizer for past 8 years. I was bored sometimes and switched to other brands but I always came back to this one. I just couldn’t find any product that has better value to replace this at that time. This cream was totally comfortable to wear on my skin and I got no trouble from it.


This is fragrance free, no breakout experienced, a partly physical sunblock that suits my sensitive skin. Love the radiant-matte finish and non-oily consistency. Some people might not like the white residue but it matches my skin tone very well, so white cast won’t be any issue to me, anyhow the white cast will disappear after a while. Not to say I purchased it at 189 baht (USD5.50) only for 50ml during promotion, that was cheap to maintain. Normal retail price is 239 baht now, however I’ll still consider it’s low price amid drugstore line still.


The later version Olay White Radiance Intensive Whitening Cream SPF24 contains chemical sunscreens, fragranced and doesn’t leave white cast residue.  The ingredient list is slightly different from the previous one and more moisturizing than old version- UV whitening cream SPF19.  My skin didn’t feel totally  comfortable with the later version anyway, therefore I sticked with the old version.


Olay White Radiance UV Whitening cream wasn’t enough to use in dry season in Bangkok when my skin became normal-dry even though I applied thickly, hence adding a moisturizing serum/lotion underneath the cream is critical. By the way, it’s ideal to be used  in hot and humid summer for my combination skin. The cream is also quite lasting for 4 months with every AM application.


I’ll continue to use it until I’m willing to have extra budget for day moisturizer and hoping this product will never discontinued.

Update @ 7/3/2011:
My friend has Olay Natural White replacing her Olay UV whitening cream and I had given it a small try. Light texture, absorb easily, leave no visible white residue and give radiant finish but slight shiny for my combination skin. I only tried for one day because this Natural White day cream stung my skin after few hours wearing. I guess my sensitive skin always detest the chemical sunscreen Avobenzone (INCI name is Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane) in skin care.

Update @ 24/11/2011:

Because this is most active post on my blog, I decided to put an update here. Surprise, totally surprise. I have seen the “discontinued” Olay White Radiance UV Whitening cream SPF 19 back on the shelve again!! It had been “disappeared” from shelves since the launching of new versions, and I had been a long time didn’t check out the beauty section in hypermarket too. Due to my reader question, I walked to the beauty section while shopping in hypermarket today and I saw this – Olay White Radiance UV Whitening series (!!). The manufacturing date is May this year (!!), and I know prestigious hypermarkets here are sourcing Olay products directly from local P&G company (which owns Olay). For those who are interested, it is made in Thailand and the manufacturing date is printed on packaging in the form B-DD/MM/YY,  the normal retail price is 299 baht. I am no sure why they bring back the line but this might be the good news for those who love this product. (“v)
