Olay Total Effects 7 in One Anti Ageing Day Cream Gentle SPF 15 Review
By Contributor: Agnirupa
Ever since the winter season arrived, I have been a stickler with my day time skincare regime of moisturizers and face washes because I am a smart kid and I know dryness brings ageing and wrinkles. Anyway, I was almost through with my l’oreal laser white day cream which I looovve btw, when I was sent a host of Olay Total Effects goodies (love you anshu) and immediately pounced on this 7 in 1 day cream with SPF 15 to try which I will review today.
Olay Claims: Olay’s answer to mature, sensitive skin that needs an extra bit of care and nourishment comes in the form of this lovely day cream that addresses the 7 signs of ageing to beautify every woman.
Visibly Reduces Dark Spots & Even Skin Tone
Years of exposure to the elements and damage accumulation leaves your skin looking duller and darker so take a step towards achieving an even skin tone. Research and innovation bring this Olay formulation to reduce dark spots so you can see the difference in your skin everyday.
Firm-Looking Skin & Reduce Pore Size
Leave people guessing your age as the cream nourishes and stimulates your skin to minimize pores. Skin is enhanced to reveal firmness and with better firmness, you will achieve a youthful appearance.
Radiant, Glowing Skin
The fine combination of Vita Niacin and Antioxidants protects your skin from free radicals so you get beautiful and younger looking skin that glows irradiant for all to envy.
Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles
The formula includes niacin amide, an essential component that reduces the effects of age showing, in the form of fine lines and wrinkles.
Soft & Smooth Skin
Olay’s mild formulation acts upon your skin to leave it feeling more soft and smooth, going beyond sun damage and skin irritation.
The packaging of this cream is the very first reason I got attracted to this brand. The bottle is so very cute that I had been waiting to get older literally to get my hands on this! It comes in the most unique pump I have ever seen with a stopper initially (check out my pics) it is convenient to carry as well but being opaque , its very difficult to figure out how much is left.
The day cream is less cream and more like lotion, with a white pearly color which gets spread evenly and smoothly on my face and is absorbed almost instantly leaving behind a radiant dewy glow on skin.
My skin is oily-combination, so it is a nightmare to use any kind of moisturizer through the year. In winters though, it feels really stretchy and the soft texture of this olay day cream soothes and calms it, leaving my skin hydrated, plump and healthy without being oily/greasy. Loving the feel! It does claim to fight against 7 signs of ageing which I don’t have except dark spots which it didn’t fade.
The added SPF even though is nothing major, is a big plus for solarphobics like me. I do layer sunscreen over or under this though. The fragrance is quite mild and nice- typical olay which fades within moments of application.

Do I recommend? I am loving this olay day cream right now in this weather for my combination skin which makes my skin look radiant and healthy without being oily. I do not have other signs of ageing or skin problems so cant say if it works on wrinkles or fine lines but as a soft radiant day cream, its gorgeous.
