Do you know that the sign of aging starts as early as in your 20s instead of your 30s as many believe? As you get older, your skin’s condition will not be as perfect as when it was in its teenage years. Not only that biologically you’re getting older, but there are also external pressure from stress and environmental condition that heavily effect your skin.
A friend once told me, that with skincare it’s always good to start using anti aging care very early rather than late. Because when the signs of aging are already visible on our face, it’s hard to eliminate them. So it’s better to prevent than to treat. It’s like having an umbrella before the rain even starts. But in our 20s, many seek for skincare that target other concerns on our skin such as dull skin, hyperpigmentation, large pore, acnes, uneven tone and so many more. So it’s very good to know that Olay Total Effect actually targets seven early signs of aging in just one product line. Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 helps to target concern such as dry skin, hyperpigmentation, large pores, dullness, rough skin and also uneven skintone as well as the main early signs of aging which is fine lines and wrinkles.
Since I’m very curious with this line, I gave this product a go. So in my 7 days trial I used Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Facial Cleanser, Serum and Gentle Cream SPF 15.

The facial cleanser has a nice puffy consistency that I’m able to make it into quite a large foam. It has a really nice texture and it doesn’t leave my face tight nor dry. A plus point for me. I did hope it came with a nice subtle scent because it will help to revitalize my senses. Too bad this line doesn’t have any toner because using the facial cleanser in its own is not enough to cleanse my face and refresh it. So I pick up a different toner to pair with this.

It comes in a small bottle with a pump. I only need a pump of this serum and I can use it all the way to my neck. At first the consistency looks thick. But at the touch it feels really lightweight and it’s easily absorbed by my skin. It feels satiny when I put it on the face. When I used toner, this serum absorbs more easily.
Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Gentle Cream SPF15 50g Rp 110,000
It’s another one put in a bottle with pump. It’s a big pump however which disperses quite large amount of product. I actually only need half of the product that it disperses for my face and neck. The cream is white and I thought with its SPF15 it will leave a white cast and not easily blended into the skin. I was wrong, it’s very thin and easily absorbed to the skin and leaves no white cast at all.
I was quite surprised by the formula of the products. I would have thought that everything would be very moisturizing and feels really wet on the face since it’s anti aging care. But instead, all of the formulation feels lightweight and dries instantly. I would say this is a perfect anti aging care for those in their early 20s who don’t need a very rich cream but want all the benefits that those rich anti aging cream offer. Although these products feel slightly drier than the usual products that I used, but I see that my face doesn’t experience any dehydration, I see no visible flakiness nor cracking.
I have a very dry skin, usually skincare that feels dry when I put them will leave my skin dehydrated. On top of that, since I’m fasting my skin feels drier than usual and I already see some flaking at the beginning of the fasting month. However, I see none at all. My complexion also doesn’t look dull, despite the lack of sleep. As for the other claimed, I can’t vouch for whether they work or not. I feel that this would also be a perfect skincare line for those with oily skin.
My verdict: if you’re looking for an entry level anti aging skincare and at an affordable price, this one is worth to consider. However, for those that have been using anti aging treatment you might want to skip it. You can say that this is anti aging skincare for beginner.
