Olay Total Effect 7 in One Anti-Ageing + Fairness Cream

July 26, 2014

Hi guys! how's life? 

Holidays approaching. Have you plan your holidays yet?
well, as for me, I don't go anywhere. Just focusing on resting my body and mind before am back to work and update this blog with tons of skincare review!

Yep! skincare! 

Been addicted to it since I'm back from Singapore last May. I'm focusing on protecting my skin from the sun ray instead of whitening/brightening as my skin was quite fair enough to begin with (refer to: my thigh, LoL). Just because I didn't apply sunscreen it became darker and guess what? dark spot too! on my face! How terrible laa TT__TT And since my face have tiny bit of dark spot (especially under the eyes) I, too, investing on skincare that claim could treat it. 

My first step was trying drug store product. Honestly, IF cheap drug store product could heal/reduce it, why not? rather than expensive cream/serum/lotion that kills my wallet LoL.

So my decision goes to Olay Total Effect 7 in One Anti-Ageing + Fairness Cream. Its the only product that I could think of during my panic attack cuz of dark spot, and beside some of my friends said its good although some review said its not? But well anyway, better try it right? and see whether it works on me or not!

Olay Total Effect 7 in One Anti-Ageing + Fairness Cream claims to:
1. Fine lines and wrinkles: reduces the appearance of fine line and wrinkles
2. Uneven Tone: balances and Evens out skin tone
3. Age  Spots: reduces appearance of Age  spots
4. Uneven texture: smoothes and evens out skin texture
5. Dryness: provides nourishing moisturisation to give skin radiant look
6. Dullness: gives skin a healthy radiance 
7. Pores: minimizes the appearance of pores

Dermatology Tested; Non-Greasy formula

Tempting claims and price. Good reason to buy.

The product came in small quantity (40g) and small plastic tube with a pump plus plastic cap. Quite hygienic and travel friendly too. Design wise was simple and quite old, IMO but I don't really mind simple minimalist design. Cute design is just a plus point for me :3

I used this product as my morning moisturizer as because of the SPF15. Its small and honestly not really helpful but since I also apply sunscreen daily I was like "Oh, Oh well". 

The consistency of this cream was kinda thick and oily in my opinion and worse, my face became so dry that I could spot some flakey TT__TT

It claimed "Non-Greasy formula" but guess what? Its still greasy for me. Well, not really THAT greasy, it only last for about 2-3minutes after application. Pea sized amount could cover my entire face.

Ingredient wise, I don't really understand but since it contains parabean, definitely not good especially for acne prone skin but luckily it didn't cause my any break out ^^;. The fragrance was too strong for me that I afraid it might harm my sensitive skin and yes it did. It pains me so much after every application but luckily no itchy redness!

And my verdict after about two month of usage: I'll not repurchase it. As;
- From 7 of the claim only Uneven Tone and Texture works on me
- Strong Fragrance that pain my face!
- Dries my face
- Not working at all on my sensitive dry skin :(

Well, have any of you try this yet? :3
