Skin Care Review: Olay Total Effects

by Lynn Singapore


Moisturises, fights aging and provides SPF 15

Does not really work to fight signs of aging that effectively.

The cream lotion comes in a nifty pump dispenser, and is light and relatively non-greasy - which is great as I have combination skin prone to enlarged pores and blackhead congestion at the T-zone area, with some dryness and occasional pimples on the rest of my face. I've been using it for about 1.5 years, since discovering it by chance while traveling in UK. It moisturises relatively well, and improved softness can be felt in 1-2 weeks. It's also light enough not to aggravate my blackheads problem. However, it may not be as effective enough against signs of aging (eg. fine wrinkles, specially around the eyes) as my fine lines are starting to become more prominent (I'm in my early thirties).You will still need another anti-aging product on top of this.

Good for younger skin,and for light moisturising.
