I never had a chance to tried Olay products since it has appeared on the Philippines cos (1) I had a loyal treat to my skincare (2) I am afraid of breakouts to try new (3)it is too pricey UNTIL I received it as gift and discovered how this thing can affect the benefits it promises. What exactly does it promise? Well, let me tell you folks what’s printed on the packaging:
Total Effects Fights 7 Signs of Ageing
- Fine lines and wrinkles: reduces the appearance of fine line and wrinkles
- Uneven tone: balance and evens out skin tone
- Dark spots: reduces appearance of dark spots
- Uneven texture: smoothes and evens out skin texture
- Dryness: provides nourishing moisturisation to give skin radiant look
- Dullness: give skin a healthy radiance and fairness
- Pores: minimizes the appearance of pores
Since it first came out, I was intriguing with the Olay commercial of some, especially on Camille Co, who was same with my age. I know, women are conscious about their skin and we value for money. As I tried this Olay Cleansing Foam and Olay anti-ageing+ fairness cream for just two weeks, I consider it as an affective regimen for me. The dark spots and pores reduce while it gives a moisturisation on my skin. Good thing it has SPF 15 too. I am brave enough to fight the scorching sun!:)
Personally, I feel the changes in my skin now, IDK if it’s ageing process so I’d spend a time to pamper it. I choose my routine from cleansing, toning and moisturizing to hydrate my skin and back to blemish free.
This opportunity to try Olay Total Effects in Olay Cleansing Foam and Olay Anti Ageing +Fairness Cream (that is) right now that formulated for women aged in their late 20s to early 40s. (I’m not sure if there’s any truth in it (P&G can verify it if they can) but I guess it’s due to the benefits which make it more suitable for aged skin.
Anyway, I like the packaging of both. I also like the dispenser which gives a control amount of foam and cream to be dispensed. Scent smells faintly like talc-y paste but it’s not too overpowing. Texture of the formulation is slightly greasy moisture. Olay fairness cream takes a minute or two before skin absorbs it, leaving skin very slightly greasy but soft and supple. Will update this post once I consumed the both bottle. But I hope my initial thoughts will serve as a partner of my skin in my entire life. Meanwhile, if any of you folks have tried (or currently using ) Total Effects, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Also, if you’ve got particular points you wish me to look into, feel free to leave them below.
