If you might have read my last few posts, you must have read my sample review of Olay cream. So i decided to go for a full size one.
The cream comes in a sturdy and attractive bottle pack with a unique pump dispenser and a plastic transparent cap. Beige colored bottle with the signature print of Olay 7 in One range.
It could be little clumsy while travelling so go for sample tubes. It is again housed in a carton box with product details printed on it.
A single pump press releases sufficient amount to cover face and neck properly. Cream is thick off white with a pleasant floral scent. I used to apply this in dots over my damp face and neck with little massage to let it spread & get absorbed.
During peak summers i noticed that cream was not properly absorbed rather formed layer which sloughs off later with sweat or just a little rubbing but as the climate became little colder, it started getting absorbed.
For my oily to combination skin, it worked in terms that i never had any oily or greasy layer nor it ever broke me out.
But in terms of improvement in skin texture, it moisturised well to cure my dry patches but no significant change in skin texture & pore size etc. Neither it worked on my blemishes & spots nor did i find a glow like that of Loreal Skin perfect cream. I have few lines on my forehead which also showed no signs of improvement.
For scorching heat, you surely need an additional sunscreen as spf 15 would not suffice for longer exposure.
Overall i would Olay Total Effects 7 in one Day Cream normal spf 15 is rather more hyped than actual performance. It is little above an ordinary moisturiser.
My Rating- 3/5
