SP: OLAY AquAction Long-lasting Hydration Gel

Hi!

Last month I received another OLAY product for review. This time, it is from the new OLAY AquAction line-up which is now available in all leading pharmacies since November 2013.

The OLAY AquAction range is powered by the breakthrough HydraLock technology to deliver a new standard of hydration- for us women to get "Pump-pump" bouncy skin! ;)
Pump-pump bouncy skin is achieved when skin cells are well-hydrated and attain a full, rounded shape, giving skin a firm and elastic touch.

This new range is to deliver 12-hour non-stop hydration so skin is kept hydrated longer.
That is all for a brief background introduction. Now for the product itself!
The jar contains so much goodness for the skin. At 50g, it is full to the brim of the gel. The silver cap is easy to twist. The jar fits into my palm nicely. It's a hard type of glass. And I am bias towards blue; I love this blue so much! *cough Okay, back to review.
Upon opening the cap, there is a white lid before we get to see the gel in it. I have a bad impression of this lid. See the small jutting out holder? Try lifting that up. At first, this lid stuck to the cap. Maybe because of the gel sipping through the small gaps around the lid. Then when it unstuck, I had a difficult time to take the lid of the jar. So, whenever I twist the cap, I made sure it was done with the lid stuck on. :P Oh, some of the gel were on the under side of the lid.
The gel is in a semi liquid state. It is not too watery that it runs of my finger. As you can see, it is in light blue.

Jar blue, now gel also light blue. This product just might be my most favourite for spoiling me with my favourite colour!
First, I will test it on my hand. My hand has rough skin; very lazy to use lotion.
See the part where it shines? That's the gel. And around it? Dry skin.
 
I have been using it for 1 month now. Here's my verdict:
The jar has one fault- that lid with the crazy small holder. But I understand it is because of the flat cap. As long as the lid is stuck to the cap upon opening, then I am fine with it. 
The gel itself is actually sticky with minimal smell. The sticky feeling is like applying lotion. At first, I didn't like the stickiness and the absorption is not fast enough for me. But waking up in the morning, my skin felt better. When I used it during the day, my skin didn't feel dry, instead it was hydrated well.

Rating: 4 stars (if the lid is changed, then maybe a 4 1/2 stars)
