REVIEW: Olay Total Effects 7in1 Pore Minimizing Toner + CC Cream

It’s no secret that I’m not getting any younger, that’s why I am trying my very best (and I should really, really try harder) to keep up and maintain a skincare regimen. Due to my very busy and erratic schedule, I sometimes forget to do the “rituals” and I end up neglecting my skin for days. I can’t ever, ever live a day without putting on moisturizer. But I know that’s not enough. I don’t drink water (which is very good for the skin!), I rely on wet/makeup remover wipes (can’t even drag myself to the bathroom to wash my face and cleanse after a long day), I have a not so healthy diet, I smoke and drink occasionally. During those times of neglect, I end up having mini breakouts, dryness, lower self-esteem, haggardness. It’s official, I am a skin killer. Haha. But, I immediately feel better when I put on sunscreen, use anti-aging oil and do the facial trifecta: cleanse, tone, moisturize. I feel more confident, glowing and ready to face the world! For serious.

When OLAY sent me a care package, I got super excited!

I have always known OLAY as one of the best, if not the best, skincare brand in the world. I have used lots of their products and they’re always effective! So I was really looking forward on trying out their newest products: OLAY Total Effects 7-in-1 Pore Minimizing Toner & the CC Cream. It did not disappoint. Details below!

So, I tried the Toner first. Couldn’t contain my excitement, I just had to use it agad agad. So I washed my face, got some cotton balls and applied it on my face.

I immediately felt my skin become tighter, clearer and my pores smaller. It’s not that visible in photos but you would see the difference once you try it. This toner works with any skin type. It hydrates the skin, removes old skin cells and reveals younger looking, airbrush-finish skin. For best results, use it with the CC Cream!

I have tried other creams, specifically BB creams, and I’d say I like Olay’s texture and composition the most. It’s not that thick, it’s smooth & watery. Just the way I like it.

Like the toner, it also hydrates & make the skin look airbrushed without making you feel like you’re wearing 5 lbs. of face mask or cream. It’s super lightweight and looks natural, resulting to a dewy, radiant skin. Lakas makabagets. Unlike other products, it doesn’t clog the pores but minimizes it pa. Wow. The best part? This product helps you fight the 7 signs of ageing (wrinkles, uneven tone, age spots, uneven texture, dryness, dullness, pores) with regular use! I use it as makeup base and I love it. You don’t have to put so much powder or foundation because it’s enough to give you that photo finish, I woke up like this (just fresh & glam) look. You don’t have to undergo the grueling task of applying sunscreen because it already has SPF15!

Don’t forget to take care of your body too!

I love how you could use it both for the body & face. Hitting 2 birds in one stone! It deeply moisturizes, makes the skin softer & more radiant and minimizes appearance of lines.

I will continue using these products and I’m so excited to see my new skin in a few weeks. Let’s all reach for our best beautiful self with Olay! This should be our everyday mantra…

You are all beautiful!:)
