Skin Care Review: Olay First Effects

by Amy Holt, London, UK


Very light feeling, easily absorbed, gives a glow

Lack of SPF

This is a moisturiser designed for people in their twenties who are starting to see the effects of ageing but do not yet have any lines/wrinkles. I have quite sensitive dry/oily skin, and used this moisturiser which belonged to a friend. I was very impressed with how the cream felt - very light but still moisturising. My sking felt very soft and silky and it provided an excellent base for makeup. It also has tiny tiny purple pigments which really make the skin look lovely and glowing - sounds a bit odd but really works.

If you're after a lovely light moisturiser, go for this!
