Olay Definity Deep Penetrating Foaming Moisturizer: No More Sticky Neck

Published in: Product Reviews, Skin Care

I’ve always tried to take care of my skin, applying sunscreen every day and moisturizing on a regular basis, but I haven’t always been good about taking care of the skin on my neck.

Lotions tend to make my neck feel sticky (I can’t stand that feeling!), but I don’t want to end up with wrinkled turkey neck. I’ve tested different moisturizers over the years and finally found one that doesn’t cause sticky neck: Olay Definity Deep Penetrating Foaming Moisturizer ($29).


It’s a quick absorbing mousse like Olay Quench Mousse body moisturizer and feels light as air. But most importantly for me, it doesn’t leave a gross, sticky film when I use it on my neck.

The bottle says it contains a glucosamine complex “…to allow the natural rebuilding of skin’s collagen structure and diminish the appearance of discolorations like dullness and brown spots.”

I put it to the test.

Each day for a month I applied Olay Definity Deep Penetrating Foaming Moisturizer (say that five times fast!) to my neck, shoulders and collar bone area in the morning and at night before bed. Not only have I noticed softer skin, but my skin tone appears more even than it was before the test. I used to have a few slightly discolored patches on my neck and shoulders, but now those patches are gone.

I was so happy with the results on my neck that I tried using it on my face. Unfortunately, I think that’s where my luck ran out. My cheeks and forehead are prone to breakouts, and they didn’t like Definity very much. After a few days I broke out in tiny pimples.

So, I’ll stick to using it on my neck, shoulders and collar bone area. No problem. I’m so glad I’m fully moisturized and don’t have a sticky neck! ๐Ÿ™‚

Yep, $29 is a bit steep, but it only takes a small dab the size of a gum ball to cover a large area. That makes the price a little easier to stomach.

It was hotter than hades here today, so Tabs decided to kick it old school with me indoors. Here’s his striped butt relaxing on my writing chair, which, coincidentally, sits right in front of the fan.

Smart cat. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Dang, $30 for something from Olay? Pricey. I always worry about getting nasty turkey neck though, haha.

    Tabs is looking ridiculously cute! He just seems to be thinking, “why is she taking a picture of me? Leave me alone!” haha.

  8. Shannon says:

    I was just reading yesterday about how you should continue your skincare routine down to your neck & collar bone area so that it doesn’t get “crepey” as you get older. It’s something I hadn’t really considered before, and will definitely start trying.

  9. Kristin says:

    i’ve also been trying to extend my facial care routine to the neck area, and I’ve been having problems with sticky neck syndrome when it comes to applying sunscreen, and also how to remove it on days I don’t need to shower. Any thoughts, anyone?

    Hi Kristin,

    I really like Shiseido 55+ — it’s light and doesn’t feel sticky at all. Here’s the review:

    Speaking of turkey, have you noticed how some women have this decollatage that looks like bumpy turkey skin post-pluck? And it’s forever darker than the rest of their skin… kind of like roast turkey? What’s that about? Is that skin just more sun damaged because of the angle at which it faces the sun? Is it more sensitive? I never want my sink there to look like that. I don’t think it will. I don’t sunbathe.
