For the longest time, I ignored moisturising my skin because of the oily/sticky residue it would leave. After an acne breakout, I realised how truly important it is to have a comprehensive skin-care regimen, which I now follow on a daily basis. There are no shortcuts to good skin, and time and effort cannot be avoided (but dodgy products can). However, I wasn’t able to shake my aversion to oily moisturisers, especially since I have oil to combination skin. I was happy to receive this Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Lightweight Anti-Ageing Cream since it claims to be especially effective against oily skin or for moisturising even during intense summer months!
After using it for a few week weeks, here are the pros to which I can personally attest:
— It’s non-greasy, fast-absorbing and non-comedogenic (simply put, it won’t block your pores), and it allows the skin to breathe while keeping it moisturised. I used the cream during the most blistering summer days, and my skin actually did feel nourished without appearing or feeling greasy.
— It also contains SPF15 protection from the sun’s damaging UV rays. This ideally makes it a go-to product for every lazy girl out there, since you can totally skip your sunscreen lotion if you’re using this cream.
—While the packaging is the classic Olay packaging, the opaque bottle with an air-restrictive pump to keeps the ingredients potent right from the first to the very last use. Bonus: it’s easy to travel with!
— I’was especially impressed with the lightweight serum in this range. Granted, this may seem like an added step for those that have the right skin type, but if you are looking to go the extra mile in your daily routine to boost your skin from good to wow, this product is right up your alley.
— It’s not emollient enough for very dry skin, and those with very oily skin will likely want something more mattifying, but for others, it's a nice middle-of-the-road option for hydration.
— While this moisturiser provides broad-spectrum sun protection via its blend of non-mineral sunscreen actives, the SPF 15 rating may be less for those who spend many hours in direct sunlight. I recommend another layer of a stronger SPF for you.
