Skin Care Review: Olay Total Effects

by Imelda, Newark, CA


good moisturizer especially under make-up; light, non-greasy

I go through it quickly, 3.5 oz for $27-$28

I've been using Olay's Total Effects (7x) for at least two years. The packaging has been changed a couple of times to indicate an improvement in the product. I haven't noticed a big difference among the formulations. It's been great. It's one of the only moisturizers that doesn't contribute to my skin breaking out. I'm 38 and in the last 5 years have been prone to cystic acne. My skin is normal to dry, with the chin area being the most prone to the cystic acne. I usually apply this just out of the shower and it keeps my skin feeling great. I've tried a couple of other products because I still think this one is a little pricey, but I keep coming back.

I really like this product, but still think it's a little pricey.
