anyone use oil of olay total effects 7x moisturizer?

Hi. Last year I had a really horrible acne breakout and I used retin a and oil of olay total effects 7x moisturizer (came in a pump and cost about 20 dollars)- it worked great. Anyhow after 6-7 months I had small tiny white papule on right cheek. I stopped using the oil of olay stuff but since then I have been using neutrogena and it has been okay but not great like the olay had been. Do you think it's worth a try again. could those breakouts be from the olay?

It could be Retin-A or Olay. Many people have an initial purging period when they use Retin-A. I would try the Olay again. I like it too.

Re: anyone use oil of olay total effects 7x moisturizer?

A few years ago when my skin cleared up on benzamycin, I used Olay Total Effects as a moisturizer and I loved it. My skin started breaking out again because my doc wouldn't prescribe anymore benzamycin, and I've tried many different products since then. I recenetly got another bottle of the Olay after about 3 years since my skin gets drier in the winter and I remembered it had worked well for me. I didn't seem to cause any new breakouts either time I've used it. I've always had good luck with Olay products. I use the fragerance free version, but I'm not sure if that makes a difference??? Some people have also had good luck with the Regenerist line.
