I was invited to test this as part of a Supersavvyme campaign. I have sensitive skin so was keen to try this.
Olay Total Effects is designed to fight the 7 signs of ageing which are:
Fine lines & wrinkles
& Visible pores
I tested the product over an 8 week period and this is how I got on.
I liked it immediately, the first time that I tried it and it did not irritate my skin at all.
The cream is lovely and feels light and sunk into my skin when I applied it. I used it as indicated twice a day and liked the fact that you could use it as a night cream as well.
Once the cream had been applied in the morning, makeup glided up over the top very easily.
As a mum to a young child, I don’t get to pamper and treat my skin like I used to and as a result my skin often looks dull and tired. I also noticed before trying the cream that my skin is beginning to show the signs of ageing. I am starting to get some fines lines (A few around the eyes and the lines around the mouth are starting to get more deeply set)
After 8 weeks, there was a huge difference in my skin. My face looked youthful and rested. Even my husband noticed the difference. My skin had a nice glow and I have a nice even skin tone.
Out of the 7 signs that it claims to target, I can say that it helped even out my skin tone, and texture of my skin. Got rid of the dullness and minimized my pores a little.
However one disadvantage was that my skin did break out in spots twice! Sometimes I think that perhaps, it was a bit too greasy for my skin. If you have greasy skin then this will probably not be for you.
Also I didn’t notice any difference in my fine lines, so I don’t know how good it would be for someone who wanted to use it to target these areas.
In summary I liked this cream because it made my skin a lot brighter and evened out my skin tone, but I don’t think that it fought all of the 7 signs of ageing for me!
