Olay's New Total Effects

This is sponsored content BlogHer and Olay.

I love that I have had the Opportunity to try out Olay's new Total Effects Cooling Hydration moisturizer!


The product is one you can buy most supermarkets and/or pharmacies.

I'm always pretty hesitant to put moisturizer on in the morning. I worry that if I put something on under my make it, it will look smeary and smudged. I was able to apply this moisturizer right out of the bottle with the tip of my finger. It didn't feel thick or heavy. I told myself I would give it a few days to determine if I thought it would work with my makeup.

I'm outside quite a bit during the day for work. Actually, I'm inside and outside all throughout the day. The temperatures in which my skin breaths changes constantly. I was quite pleased by the end of the day, my make up still looked the same. After a few days, I also felt like my skin was a bit softer once I washed my face to go to bed!

I look forward to using this moisturizer! I get sick of trying so many others that I never really love.

Do you have one that you absolutely love? How long have you been using it?

I have actually been looking for a new facial moisturizer. I will have to try Olay's! I have been using Clinique's Dramatically Different moisturizer for YEARS! It's great! But I also LOVE LOVE LOVE Arbonne's RE9 Advanced. It's a little pricey for the whole set but it's AMAZING!!!!! Another oldy,but goody is Mary Kay's anti-aging system! Love the serum!

I always use Olay face lotion before putting on makeup! It helps my foundation spread easily!

I'm scared of moisturizer because of break outs. Would love to find or try something that doesn't.

Shauna said...

I am currently using Clinic moisturizer, but it leaves my face kinda of dry. I'm still looking for the perfect one ;)

Ashley said...

I use Garnier Moisture Rescue Gel for my face, and Mary Kay lotion for my body! I love the Garnier because it is so light and refreshing. It has a very light clean scent as well. I guess I would have normal skin so the thicker facial lotions just kinda sit on my skin, which I cannot stand.

Jones Family said...

I use Olay Total Effects Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15

MarionG said...

I use Care 5 Benefits Moisturising fluid by StellaMcCartney. I like the pump applicator.

I use Suave Natural Oatmeal Skin Therapy lotion...I have rosacea and anything with any type of fragrance in it irritates it even more. Might have to try this one though, always looking for new facial lotion that won't irritate, but won't leave me looking greasy!

megan.lindley33@gmail.com

CrysHouse said...

Typically I use Mary Kay because I have extremely sensitive skin and I'm always really hesitant to try new things on it. From time to time, I'll use cetaphil. Those seem to be the only things that don't cause an acne break-out or a rash.

I have always used clean and clear moisturizer it is VERY light and makes my face feel very refreshed!

Small Footprints said...

If I had to choose just one moisturizer, it would organic, unrefined Shea butter. I put it on before bed and it heals and softens through the night. The next day, it continues to protect my skin ... even after washing in the morning. It's lovely and can be used on the entire body!
