My Opinion: - I was chosen by BlogAdda to review Olay Total Effects 7 in One  Cream + Serum Duo. I received it about 10-12 days back and today I am reviewing it. I have been using Olay Total Effects 7 in One Day Cream with a touch of Foundation SPF 15 and liking it a lot, I can best describe it as a light-weight Tinted Moisturiser. So I was very enthusiastic about using this Cream + Serum. The packaging is a convenient cylindrical see through  plastic can with a black pump dispenser and a golden collar around the pump. The cap is clear plastic and it closes with a click which means it is safe to be carried around in my purse. But I would prefer a normal tube packaging over a pump dispenser as these have backfired on me :/

                         The fragrance is mild but sweet, kind of floral which I don't think will irritate sensitive noses. The texture is soft and creamy and the consistency is that of a light-weight cream. I was skeptical when I pumped out the cream for the first time, it looked very thick and heavy. But to my surprise, this Olay Cream + Serum is light on my skin and does not make my skin oily or greasy, on the contrary it gives a velvety glow to my skin. In air-conditioned environment my skin looks fresh for about 5-6 hours but in a non air-conditioned environment my skin feels a little greasy and gets shiny after about 4 hours, so I can say this cream fairs well on my oily skin. This cream + serum contains SPF 15 which is quite low but that's also an added advantage for many lazy people.

                      I wash my face with a face wash, then I use a toner and then I use this cream + serum on my face on dots, just a single pump is enough for my face and neck. I massage it gently on my skin and it easily spreads and get absorbed into my skin in a couple of minutes, this cream  serum does not sit on top of my skin. I use a foundation/bb cream on top of it after say 5 mins but at times I just wear this cream + serum alone with a light dusting of loose powder. Ofcourse I have to touch up post lunch but that's it. I sweat profusely upon applying this cream but it gets absorbed into my skin, the sweating is gone and my skin feels smooth and silky to the touch (no I am not a Narc :P and don't keep touching my face). This cream is easily to blend into the skin and one full pump is what is required for my face and neck. So I think this meager quantity of 20 gms will last me 30-40 days. The best thing about this cream + serum is that it works well as a makeup base. Foundation glides over it like a dream, blends well and gives a flawless finish. A cheap makeup base since it also minimizes the ugly pores around my nose and cheeks.


                          Now coming to its 7 claims, 1. fine lines and wrinkles- fortunately I don't have any, so comments, 2. uneven tone- not sure since I am using it since 10-12 days but surely it brightens up the skin, 3. age spots- again no comments since I do not have age spots but I have pimple marks which might fade out with regular use over a longer period of time, 4. uneven texture- gives velvety smooth skin <3, 5. dryness- works as a great moisturiser, gives the required moisture to my oily skin <3, 6. dullness- gives a radiant glow upon application <3, 7. pores- I love how it diminishes my ugly pores <3 and on top of these 7 benefits, it works very well as a makeup base/primer, it way cheaper than bases/primers and the best thing about this cream is that it didn't break me out <3<3<3


* Affordable and Easily Available

* Fragrance is sweet and mild

* Gives required moisture to the skin

* Minimizes pores effectively

* Gives a velvety glow to the skin

* Gives a smooth and silky feel

* Brightens up the skin upon application

* A single pump is enough for my full face and neck, hence 20 gm will last me a good 30-40 days

* Works very well as a makeup base

* The packaging is much bigger compared to the contents (20 gms)

* Didn't give me breakouts :)


* Pump dispenser might dis-function, tube packaging is more convenient

* Might not provide adequate moisture for dry skin beauties

* Contains Parabens

* SPF 15 is very low sun protection

               I rate Olay Total Effects 7 in One Cream + Serum Duo 4.25 out 5, it's a  good moisturiser and suits my skin well. Didn't break me out and I love the off-white and yellow marbleized pattern the cream and serum creates inside the see through plastic can. Recommended to beauties who appreciate a soft and smooth skin
