Anyone heard of fake Olay products doing the rounds?
I recently bought some Olay total effects 7x day moisturiser online and on receiving it, am not sure it is genuine.
Does anyone else use this, so I can compare notes?
Anyone have any advice about how to find out if it is genuine?
I have used the contact form on the Olay site, but they will probably think I am some sort of nutter lol
I havent used this product before so cant compare colour or its smell.
Just dont want to use it if it isnt the real thing.
I have looked at pics of it on google, and there seems to be a huge range of different packaging for this product, found one that looks like it, the only difference I can see is the underlining being better placed on the online image compared to what I have in front of me.
The box looks in places as if the printer ink was running out lol, though this could have been caused by the box being rubbed against other boxes I guess.
The plastic stuck on label on the pump dispenser is crooked and has bubbles or something under it on the front label and back.
Something just doesnt seem right about it, any help would be much appreciated

Why not send some photos to Olay, they should be able to tell you straight away whether it is a fake or not.

ooh so do i but i doubt it lol
they supply the packaging for you to send it to them but they didnt say anything about covering postage costs.
they say in their email something to the effect off... buy from a reputable seller not auction sites
yeah sure.... wouldnt we all love to be in the situation where we could buy whatever we wanted at full price without worrying about the cost?

I buy Olay skin care products often and the last pot of day moisturiser i bought did not seem as good quality or consistency as normal.
I thought it just might have been an item from a bad batch, but I got mine from the high street. makes you wonder if they've changed the ingredients.
Obviously, this may not be relevant to your particular query if you bought it online, but a coincidence all the same.
