As I get older, the problems with my skin become MORE of a problem. There are more lines, splotches and marks to cover up. At the same time, I also want to moisturize and protect my skin. That could add up to a lot of make-up which is why I wanted to try the Olay Total Effects 7 in One Moisturizer with Sunscreen.

7 Signs of Aging

The Olay Total Effects fights 7 signs of aging while protecting your face from the sun with an SPF 15 sunscreen and adds a sheer tint. Here are the 7 signs of aging Total Effects fights:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles: reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven Tone: balances and helps even out tone
  • Age Spots: reduces appearance of discoloration
  • Gentle Exfoliation: Improves surface cell turnover
  • Dryness: provides nourishing moisturization
  • Moisture Barrier: strengthens skin’s natural defense against moisture loss
  • Luminosity: recaptures youthful luminosity

Before & After Olay Total Effects

Just to give you a comparison, here is a before and after photo with the Olay Total Effects on my face. The photos were not retouched at all. I just formatted them for my blog.

I like that I only have to use one product to do everything because I was using a moisturizer with sunscreen and foundation before. Since I don’t like to wear a lot of make-up, the light tint was perfect for me. Because of the moisturizer, Total Effects feels like a moisturizer and goes on just like a moisturizer.

The box states that you need to reapply Total Effects every 2 hours to keep the sunscreen working. I can’t imagine this replacing my sunscreen when I go to the beach, but using it daily when I wouldn’t otherwise be putting on sunscreen is a good thing.

Do you use sunscreen and/or anti-aging creams?
