Fancy 7 benefits in a bottle?

Notice how girls seemed to be broke almost every month? And how much we loved shopping? The amount of space needed for our room? Well, this is why - we have loads of beauty products to buy! Ranging from hair care to nail care, from head to toe, we need tens if not hundreds of bottles of these wonder products to enhance our beauty.

There's every product for head to toe!

I personally, have loads of nail colour in the shades of red. To guys, it may just be red. But to me, all these reds are different! And when it comes to moisturisers, you'll need one for the face, one for the body and one for the place where the sun don't shine! And those really adds up to the amount of products I have on my dressing table.

Noticed that my mosturiser bottle is nearly empty and it's time to go shopping for a new bottle! Yay on one side but heartache on the other because it's time to fork out loads of moolah to buy a bottle of cream that is not a life-saving item but completely necessary. I'm a very simple person when it comes to choosing a particular skincare product.

When I go searching for the bottle of moisturiser, I am looking at one that gives me the best benefits besides the affordable pricing and a trusting brand. Most of the moisturisers in the market now does not only offer the effects of moisturising and nourishing, some even offer the whitening benefits which garnered lots of approval from youngsters nowadays because of the amount of sun we are exposed to. Having a fair and smooth skin seemed to be the trend.

However, I was introduced to the new Olay Total Effects. It has never crossed my mind to try Olay because I can still remember the days where it was called Oil of Ulan then and the ads of this brand is all over the TV. I still have that perception that Olay is for the older and more mature ladies. Well, I was challenged to change my perception towards Olay Total Effects. The new moisturiser seemed to be the hottest product off the shelf because of the 7 EFFECTS that they promise to deliver.

Honestly I hate it when people tell me that I looked older than real age. The conversation always start with this
"Hey Eiling, tell me, how old are you?" and I'll usually say "Why don't you take a guess?" And the replies I always get are - "Let me guess, you're 28 this year?" They always guess that I'm a few years older than my biological age. I guess the usual skincare with whitening is just not enough. Whitening do not include anti-ageing benefits.

Although I'm in my 20's, I've started to feel the effects due to our hot and humid weather and constant exposure to UV rays from the sun and also the dusty environment. Until I discovered Olay Total Effects! Love the light texture, and my skin actually starts to feel plumper after just a few weeks. I like that it has UV protection as well!

This is all you need for each application.

Total Effects fights 7 signs of aging (fine lines and wrinkles, rough texture, uneven skin tone, dullness, prominent pores, age spots and dryness) by:

• Minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
• Moisturizing to soothe and nourish dry skin
• Balancing color and tone while reducing the appearance of age spots
• Smoothing skin’s texture with gentle exfoliation
• Refining to minimize pore appearance
• Protecting skin’s surface with antioxidants
• Firming skin’s appearance with hydration

I've been using the Olay Total Effects for 2 weeks now and I have been tracking the changes I've experienced throughout this period of time. My beauty regime is simple: wash with a facial cleanser, apply toner & moisturiser. I do this in the morning and before I go to bed. Although the changes are not very drastic, as I do not have any visible wrinkles on my skin as of now, the moisturiser does provide my skin with enough protection and at the same time keeping it moisturised even in air-conditioned rooms and in the hot sun.

This is the right product for women in their 20's if they are looking for a product that gives them both the whitening and anti-ageing effects. It's always good to start early with the right skincare to achieve a clear, fair and flawless complexion.

Before & After

The skin is more evenly toned and pores has been reduced. The best thing is that the cream is now in a lighter formula for better absorption and less greasy on the skin. Knowing that the moisturiser also provides antioxidants to protect the skin surface gives me a peace of mind especially due to the nature of my job. I do go out in the sun once in a while during my market visits and therefore, I appreciate that the moisturiser is doing a good job by providing the 7 anti aging benefits in 1 formula for visibly younger-looking skin that looks more resilient to aging.

There's something about this moisturiser that I really like - the signature scent of a powdery and sunscreen bouquet. Considering the affordable pricing (RM40+) for this moisturiser, it is worth a try if you haven't test the Olay Total Effects yourself. It's available at most leading hypermarkets & pharmacies.

Hey, my mom uses this too. Swears by Olay Total Effects - she even keeps a spare bottle just in case she runs out.

I guess there's something to it's benefits since my mom doesn't look her age at all, it's partially genetics of course, like how I don't look my age.

My mom actually looks very much younger than she is. :)
