Olay Total Effect is no stranger to all I guess… My mom has been using it ever since it’s introduced, almost 10 years… I remember I tried it last time when my mom bought it and I quite like it. However, I stopped using it after few usages because I did not really need it. If I’m not mistaken, it’s recommended for women age 27 and above.
I decided to start using it last month since I’m in my late twenties. Why not? It has always been a very good product that many people rave about. Even my mom is using it ever since its introduction.
I used it for a week and I surrendered. It’s not suitable for me. It broke me out! It did not melt into my face and left a sticky film on my face. In fact, I didn’t really like the smell, too strong for me. However, if it did work, I don’t mind the smell.
Ended up, I gave it to my mom. I wanted to try the other one, Olay Total Effects Cooling Essence but didn’t get to buy it because I’m afraid it’s not suitable for me also.
Since my skin is very dry and sensitive now, I’ll just concentrate in getting my skin hydrated as much as possible. Any product that I’m going to invest will be primarily for hydration. Once the face is hydrated, there will be less skin problems to worry about.
