Fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots are signs of skin aging. If tackled at the beginning itself, you can prevent these from progressing further. One of the best ways to do it is to include a cream or a lotion in your daily skincare routine.
The Olay Total Effects 7 in One range that caters to these needs and contains anti-aging creams and serums that can be used during the day and at night, before going to bed. In this article, we will review the Olay Total Effects 7 in One Anti-Ageing+Fairness Cream.
Description And Packaging
This cream is meant for daily usage and contains anti-aging compounds along with other ingredients that will make your skin lighter and brighter. Its SPF content protects the skin from sun damage.
The cream is packaged in a cylindrical plastic bottle that comes with a pump and a plastic cap. The pump makes it easier to dispense product into your palm. It is also a hygienic feature as dipping fingers into a tub of cream can contaminate the rest of the cream. However, the residual cream peeks through the pump which can make the see-through cap a bit messy. This bottle comes in a black cardboard packaging. The overall look of the cream’s packaging is classy with the black and gold color theme.

My Experience With Olay Total Effects 7 in One Anti-Ageing + Fairness Cream (Review)
I started using this product after I freaked out over the fact that the lines under my eyes seemed to have multiplied/deepened (also, I should clarify that this might have been a little bit of an overreaction on my part.) I’ve been using the product for a month, and there is still some left in the bottle. While Olay Total Effects 7 in One Anti-Ageing Fairness Cream hasn’t really done anything for my imaginary “lines”, it is an efficient moisturizer which has made my skin extremely soft.
I use the product once every morning after cleansing my face. After a month’s use, I can definitely say that my face looks a lot healthier. The product does not clog my pores, and I have noticed a visible shrinkage of pores. While I cannot comment on how effective its anti-ageing properties are, with how it’s been working for me, I would say that it is suitable for people who are in their 20s and want to start the skin-preserving process.
Overall, The Olay Total Effects 7 in One anti-ageing fairness cream is a good moisturizing anti-aging cream for young women. It shows results in a matter of few weeks. Even though a few of its ingredients and features are not as appealing, the product as a whole is worth trying. It doesn’t clog pores or make the skin oily. It moisturizes the skin to the optimum without the greasy appearance. Follow this up with a sunblock for added protection from sun damage.
How To Use Olay Total Effects 7 in One Anti-Ageing Fairness Cream?
Take about one to one and a half pumps on your palm and apply the cream in upward circular motions on your face and neck. Apply the cream after you have cleansed your face and before you apply any foundation or makeup.
