Get that perfect glow and smoothness with Olay Total Effects Serum+Cream Duo

By Tarry 

Hello my sweetie pies...

Am just hooked to kind of nostalgic phase today. So its songs like Rasputin, Brown Girl in the ring (both by Boney M) and even Girl you know its true (by this another group called Mili Vanelli) on loop today. By the way, did you guys know that Boney M and Mili Vanelli were actually created by the same guy? And it was this guy who was actually the main male voice in Boney M but only inside the recording studios? 

Anyhoo, so much for the music trivia...  A few days ago, I felt that since the weather was changing and my skin has started having some dry patches, I need to switch to a better moisturiser. I am at an age when I should ideally start off with anti ageing products (I am on the other side of 30.... much other ;-), but somehow, all anti ageing products break me out be it summers or winters. My doc says that my skin still hasn't started ageing as of yet but I should start off atleast now.... 

Ok... so since anti ageing stuff doesn't suit me much, I keep away. However, this time I decided to check on the Olay Total Effects Duo. I have heard a lot of good things about this one and how, this is one of the best Olay products. So I picked up this one and after a month and half of using it, I am finally ready to talk on it.  

Here I present to you my ladies,

the Olay Total Effects 7 in one Cream + Serum Duo

On the Outside :
I super love the pump on Olay Total Effects and Regenerist ranges. They are such nice and handy kind of pumps. The top carton is black with a beige tone and has all details like price, ingredients etc. Its always better to keep this box as it makes the product even more travel friendly. Inside, the regular slim total effects bottle with a cute pump nozzle and a transparent cap. You can always see how much is left and trust me, you end up using the product till the last drop.

On the Inside :
The Olay total effects serum plus cream duo is a far better option than the Olay total effects regular moisturiser. It has a serum for anti ageing and a cream for even tone skin. Infact, if you see the bottle closely, you can see deep yellow coloured ribbons inside the light beige yellow cream. So it is far lighter than the regular total effects and much more effective too. The texture is very light and gets absorb in the skin quite easily. It hasn't broken me out at all and forms a perfect base for makeup too. If you use this at night, you wake up with much softer skin. I just love what it has done to my skin.... <3 <3

Thumbs up for :
- Quite a decent anti ageing product to start off with. 
-  Does make the skin smooth and glowing, with minor fine lines like smile lines looking less prominent in a months time.
- Doesn't break out oily skin and is super awesome for dry skin.
-  Gives a smooth even tone to the skin with smaller pores.
- Travel friendly packaging.
- Little goes a long way. My 20 gm bottle lasted a month and half.  
- Decent SPF 15.
- Makes foundation and BB creams application much easier. 

Thumbs down for :
- Does take time to show results. 
- Some people may find it costly.

The Olay Total Effects Serum + Cream Duo is a wonderful moisturiser for all skin types (sensitive ones may need to check) which not only makes your skin smooth and glowing but also takes care of those initial fine lines. It also makes a nice base for makeup. Overall, it is all what you may ask from a moisturiser. I simply love....
 Oooh ... baby, I'd love you to want me too... 
 ... there I go into nostalgic mood again with Lobo ;-)
