I was just looking at their website and was going to email them for some samples, if they do them. My aunt had olay years ago (80's) and the texture/smell wasn't that nice, so I want to test it before buying.
I also use Heliocare 360 but the cream rather than the gel. I'm just about to start my second tube. I've been using the first one for maybe 6 months (I only use it in the morning) so even at £24 a tube it's still pretty cost effective. I've noticed that my deep "No1" wrinkle between my eyes isn't quite as deep, and my forehead lines don't seem quite so pronounced. Great base for under foundation too!
Olay Total Effects is very good. It's £15 full price but always on offer somewhere. The smell is fine, you can get a fragrance free version, but somehow it doesn't seem as good. The only problem is that it's only spf15 and goodness knows how much you'd have to use to get that level of sun protection. Boots Protect and Perfect sun cream is nice, goes up to spf50 and might be worth a try, again £15 but often on offer.
I'm currently trying a Nivea spf50 mousse, which seems to be just about moisturising enough for me (my skin is dryish). I got it in Asda for about £10 and I quite like it so far.
I know you’ve already picked something, but if it doesn’t suit, I find L’Oreal Revitalift one with SPF 30 really good. Often on offer in boots or Superdrug. I think I’ve been using it for next part of a decade!

I think i used to use that years ago, when it first came out. It leaves your skin very plump, I was going to get that again but thought there might be some nice new -better- ones to choose from now, but it seems the oldies are the best
