Skin Care Review: Oil of Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 anti aging cream

by Carmen


Good moisturizing balance for combination oily t-zone & dry cheeks. No breakouts.Sunblock

Skin doesn't look "fresh", slight greasy finish, not completely absorbed.No exfoliation

In a tropical country like the Philippines, finding a good sunblock/moisturizer can be challenging. The heat and humidity + pollution can be a challenge to deal with. This so far has been the one affordable product in the market that gives me the UV protection combined with moisturizing and anti-aging benefits, without making me break out (most sunblock products break me out). I thought that it was a good "balancing" product that does a lot of things... On the downside, it does tend to give a greasy finish, does not promote much exfoliation or skin renewal as far as i can tell, and there is a slight puffiness that i noticed on my face in general (could this be the anti-aging action?). I think it made my skin tighten a little bit. I ran out of this product for several months, and there was a huge difference in my skin - more sagging, more uncontrolled breakouts.

A good all-around product, but additional products needed for target problem areas.
