Blogadda was giving away 50 Olay creams to testers, and I decided to apply … just on a lark. 8 days letter, I get a mail from them saying that I was one of those lucky 50 people. Excited and happy I waited for my prize, and in 4 days’ time, I got my package. The product tube reached me in perfect condition, but the outer casing was badly dented. However, that just meant I had to take pictures after I removed the outer shell.

This is what the product claimsOlay Total Effects 7-in-1 Anti-Ageing Cream Normal SPF15 is the perfect choice for women who wish to have a beautiful skin, effortlessly. Olay Total Effects has been formulated so that it provides beautiful younger looking skin that everyone longs for. Use this cream to get an array of benefits and give the skin what it needs to look young and beautiful. This cream is endowed with the good qualities of SPF 15 which protects you from the harmful rays of sun, tan and pigmentation. Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Anti-Ageing Cream Normal SPF15 helps fight the 7 signs of ageing because it’s created after years of state-of-the-art anti-ageing research. The key to this is a combination of two ingredients Vita Niacin and Anti-Oxidants, which together work to fight 7 signs of ageing and give younger looking skin.

Here is how the cream looks like. Its quite similar to the original Olay packaging, except for the transparent bottom. Price: 349/- for 20 gm.

It looks quite similar to the original Olay packaging, but the good news is – this one looks like strands of something has been swirled into it. I had a distinct impression of a layered ice cream at first. However, there is an extended transparent segment at the bottom (probably intended to make the product look bigger than it is) that makes the product topple a lot. I opened the transparent cap and sniffed. Whoof! The smell was quite strong, although nice.

One pump and the black nozzle generously disperses a small amount perfect for covering my entire face and neck, and my face is big. On my oily skin, during the day, this product is a disaster, because I sweat a lot. I generally apply this at night after cleaning my face. This is also great for the times I am inside a room with AC and my skin dries out.

Frankly speaking, I am still not sure of any differences to my skin, apart from the fact that this product hydrates it a lot. I will have to use this for 3 months or so to figure out how it is. But I do like the lovely hydration that my skin gets after using it, and the fact that it glows. I do not see any correction or anything, but I am only using this for 8 days now. So Olay, I will have to use you more to plumb your depths.
