K3rryd0ll • 05/12/2017 - 10:42

I absolutely love this cream, it's so silky smooth and very light. Ive never really been a fan of anti aging creams etc but I am a fan of this one 😁

Jaylep • 05/12/2017 - 10:42

It has worked wonders and my skin is out in the elements every day and it's still soft and smooth

Kimmuttock • 05/12/2017 - 10:43

I really like the smell of this cream. The best bit about it is that you don’t need a lot in fact half a pump is sufficient!!

hanenenasr • 05/12/2017 - 10:44

Olay is one of my few favourite face creams. Don't need to buy an expensive cream. This one makes me feel good all the day with its smell and nice skin feeling

Happymam03 • 05/12/2017 - 10:45

I love Olay total effects any-aging cream. My skin is illuminated and so soft. My new favourite beauty product.

NishTheFish • 05/12/2017 - 10:46

Only a tiny amount needed to cover the whole face. Smoothes my face without leaving it looking greasy. A great base for make up too.

Dy • 05/12/2017 - 10:47

everyone is loving this cream, no negative comments at all

Moozy01 • 05/12/2017 - 10:55

Now I have used this cream a little longer I can feel a difference and my skin feels so much softer and also have noticed a little colour on my face and being brighter.

wytaly • 05/12/2017 - 10:56

I really like the cream, my skin feels great I have not any bad comments about it like from consistency to the packaging.

Mimmzy38 • 05/12/2017 - 11:02

I have loved this cream it dissipates really easily and I have noticed a difference not that I need it of course 😜

Meggymoomoo • 05/12/2017 - 11:03

Absolutely brilliant! See such a difference in the clarity and brightness of my skin! Amazing!

Littlelady84 • 05/12/2017 - 11:03

Ooooh it's so creamy... love the feeling

Kylhar • 05/12/2017 - 11:07

I love this cream. Perfect as a make up base and you only need a small amount

2068313577830241844 • 05/12/2017 - 11:11

What a revelation this cream is a perfect match for my skin it has brightness my completion and is glowing am getting so many positive comments

Terminatrix • 05/12/2017 - 11:15

I'm really impressed with this cream. I have already left a review, added pictures as well as feedback from friends and family x

lindsayw • 05/12/2017 - 11:19

This wonder cream is a Christmas miracle, I look young again!

Norster84 • 05/12/2017 - 11:21

My skin feels so much better and rejuvenated thankyou so much olay and supersavvy for letting me be apart of this wonderful project xx

Tapir82 • 05/12/2017 - 11:27

Really enjoyed being part of the project. I liked how this cream sank in well and despite the spf, didn't feel greasy. It hasn't tackled my hormonal acne but I didn't expect it to. It has, however, kept up the moisture in my dehydrated winter skin and left me looking more radiant!

Nic1981 • 05/12/2017 - 11:29

Loving Olay, can really see and feel the change in my skin. Skin feels really soft and balanced, especially at this time of year, normally I have dry patches with the cold weather and heating on inside. Even went out and bought the night cream and eye cram to try!

Kerri28 • 05/12/2017 - 11:55

I’ve loved being part of this project. I’ve told so many people about this cream, it’s fantastic!
I really didn’t think this would work for me as I’ve struggled to find creams in the past.
It’s amazing my skin looks and feels so good.

Mrsforster • 05/12/2017 - 12:07

I was sceptical with this initially as it’s aomething my mum uses, I won’t use anything else now. It’s evened our my skin tone and gives me a nice glow. With the weather recently it’s really helped me.

westendgirl1 • 05/12/2017 - 12:11

I really like how a little goes a long way with this cream.

Ninasouth2712 • 05/12/2017 - 12:21

I didn't like this cream it left me with a strange tingling feeling in my face and it is very thick

Diane123456 • 05/12/2017 - 12:24

I am totally in Love with this cream and everyone who has also tried it Loves it too absolutely no bad feedback what so ever.

Jomcclellan • 05/12/2017 - 13:20

I have used the cream for a few weeks now and my skin feels lovely and smooth and dare I say I look brighter...
I have quite sensitive skin and I can be prone to getting teenage spots even though I’m 42! Olay agrees with my skin which is really clear without any spots so I will definitely continue to use it. I am quite nervous about trying new creams as often it will cause my skin to break out.
My only very slight criticism is that I find the pump on the bottle quite tricky and sometimes end up with too much which I feel is a bit of a waste. I think it would be better if it came in a jar with a screw top lid then you can use as little or as much as you like.
I have also been using it around my lips where I have started to get fine lines which I hate. These haven’t really improved but I can feel a tightness after a few minutes when applied.
So to conclude I think it’s a great product and I will be buying some for my friends and family this Christmas especially the wrinkly ones....

kated86 • 05/12/2017 - 13:21

I do thinknthe cream makes my face soft it jist seems to be stinging on application and i wouldn't say my skin is particularly sensitive.

Lynda10 • 05/12/2017 - 13:25

Love this cream and so glad I got the chance to try it. Soft and glowing skin!! Just in time for Christmas and will continue use in the new year.

Vicky6215 • 05/12/2017 - 13:28

I have loved using this cream, a little goes a long way. It’s very light and has made a difference to my skin. Will definitely be buying more.

dududee • 05/12/2017 - 13:39

Truly, I've become even braver with my bare skin. It suits my skin perfectly with just a pea sized amount.
My skin doesn't feel greasy neither does it feel dried out in the cold.

Carolle • 05/12/2017 - 13:40

I am so glad I was picked to review this cream, my skin has been dryer lately due to the menopause so it was wonderful not to develop a rash after using it, unlike most creams I have tried. My skin has never felt so soft and comfortable so I will continue using Total Effects gladly. The added bonus is looking younger, too!

pinkbarbie • 05/12/2017 - 14:15

I've really enjoyed using this cream and the radiance it has given my tired mum of two little ones, skin! Love the texture and the subtle fragrance too.

mammymoo21 • 05/12/2017 - 14:25

Thank you for choosing me for this product I used every night and day on my skin it left my skin soft and smooth, it wasn't a sticky to apply like some creams I will definitely be buying in the future also recommend to family and friends

Pinky_26 • 05/12/2017 - 14:27

After weeks of using this AMAZING product I can honestly say I still love it!! Its a perfect base for makeup and my skin looks brighter and smoother and I feel wayyy more confident than I used to. I find it even keeps my makeup in place longer and it looks more natural rather tha being caked on like I usually did. I have had loads of compliments. I have had eczema since I was very young and this is the only moisturiser than minimises it and still keeps my skin so moist and silky. Thank you soooo much for choosing me for this trial! Otherwise I may never have found this life changing product!! 10/10!! I will be purchasing this for a very long time!

Emilijanojus • 05/12/2017 - 14:29

I love this cream xx would recomended for myfriends xx

Meighanlisa • 05/12/2017 - 14:40

At first I was worries the cream might have been to greasy but it's really not. My skin looks brighter and feel a softer. Everyone i have given samples to absolutely loves it. So much so my mum has asked for more as a Xmas present

RachM • 05/12/2017 - 14:49

I loved being part of this project and sharing the experience with others. The cream really suited my skin and I could see a real difference over the weeks I used it.

interesting-username • 05/12/2017 - 15:24

Overall I liked this cream, it did seem to moisturise and I liked that it had an SPF. It didn't cause me spots and I appreciated that it had a range of additional ingredients which were beneficial to my skin.

I was though a little worried that the SPF was not high enough for me- I need a higher SPF for day wear, my skin is very pale and I worry about the fine lines I have and the pigmentation I also have getting worse. I also like to use a retinol at night and this increases the sensitivity to SPF my skin will have during the day time, I felt like I needed to apply another SPF over this and that sort of defeats the purpose. I think I may have had a different feeling for this cream had it had a stronger SPF, chemical or physical so I was more protected, ideally at 30 but 50 would have been fantastic. Having said that- I think if the SPF was higher the product would have had a different feel so I can't really say "if the SPF was different...etc" because it wouldn't have been the same cream at all, it would have either left a white residue (physical SPF) or felt more oily (chemical SPF), either would have risked clogging pores and may have affected the absorption of additional anti-oxidants and peptides, both of which Olay are known for so it's not an easy comparison.

rachel81 • 05/12/2017 - 15:30

This cream is by far the best I have used. It smells nice it absorbs lovely and I have noticed a great difference on my skin will defiantly be buying this cream 🙋😍

mummylooby • 05/12/2017 - 15:48

This cream is so soft and silky I can't stop raving about it to all my friends and family

haliceb • 05/12/2017 - 16:32

I love this cream my face feels so soft. My fine lines have started to fade. Inlove putting it on every morning it gives me a glow.

Mashuljkin • 05/12/2017 - 16:36

Everybody loves this cream, no complaints at all. My favourite thing is the smell, it’s gorgeous!

kungfupidge21 • 05/12/2017 - 16:40

a fab cream ive had so many compliments from using it i highly reccomend it xx

jugs78 • 05/12/2017 - 16:40

Have noticed an improvement in my skin and my dry spot on my tzone has disappeared too. Very good, will be buying this.

saz007 • 05/12/2017 - 16:58

Really enjoying using this cream, a little definitely goes a long way. It’s very light and the smell I really nice and subtle. I feel it's made a difference to my skin even in the short time of use. Will be looking to add the eye cream next!

schweta • 05/12/2017 - 17:26

I've always loved the Olay brand.

MasonBreen • 05/12/2017 - 18:01

Still loving this cream. Such a luxurious feel!

Katp • 05/12/2017 - 18:14

My skin keeps getting better an better will definatly keep using this cream

dennaruk • 05/12/2017 - 18:49

This has made a total difference to my skin. Given its winter my skin still looks amazing after using this cream where other creams left it dull and dry

pinkster28 • 05/12/2017 - 18:53

Unfortunately this cream leaves my face with s strange stinging feeling and I've not overly sensitive skin

Emma_jacko • 05/12/2017 - 19:31

I love the over all feeling of this cream. It's really brightened and nourished my skin.

Jojo7878 • 05/12/2017 - 19:36

I’ve absolutely enjoyed trialling this cream! My face has never looked better! Skin looks form and smooth! Wow!

Bub1202 • 05/12/2017 - 19:43

This cream is great. After many sleepless nights with a newborn, this cream helps to make my skin look more nourished and fresh, even when I am not!

pliusas • 05/12/2017 - 19:54

better than expected :)

louuubee • 05/12/2017 - 20:22

In complete honesty the moisturiser was nice but i didn't notice a difference with fine lines and i had dry patches on my skin that i don't normally have. On the plus side my skin felt nice, the moisturiser absorbed really well and it did brighten my skin. It's not something I'd buy again though.

luanda11 • 05/12/2017 - 20:23

Thanks Olay for my beautiful winter skin. During winter months I used to have very dry skin, but no more. Olay is the best Christmas present.

SophieT82 • 05/12/2017 - 20:35

Love the texture and scent. Really glad I tried this, it's now my new fave moisturiser!

Elisha32 • 05/12/2017 - 20:53

I love the fresh, light feel and smell of the face cream. Easy to apply. Not in any way heavy feeling with no residue. Well done Okay!

Elisha32 • 05/12/2017 - 20:53

I love the fresh, light feel and smell of the face cream. Easy to apply. Not in any way heavy feeling with no residue. Well done Olay!

vawny • 05/12/2017 - 21:06

Really loving this cream.. Ive had a lot of comments on how healthy my skin is looking. And you dont use alot so its going to last forever.. alsio a brilliant base for foundation.

sasha011 • 05/12/2017 - 21:20

Its a great product especially at this time of year when my skin is drier

Bellepluie • 05/12/2017 - 21:38

Lovely cream, very happy with the result. My skin feel moisturised and smooth.

beansmad • 05/12/2017 - 21:40

This is a lovely cream, which has made my skin really smooth.

morgajn • 05/12/2017 - 21:46

Pleasantly surprised by this cream. My skin was borderline sore because of the cold weather but it’s much more supple and moisturised. Really grateful to be able to have found this product!

Scallywagbob • 05/12/2017 - 21:57

I have been using my Olay total effects now in place of my usual Nivea both morning and night, I must say at first it did seem to sting a little on the first few applications, but even at the tender age of 37 I am still prone to 't-zone' breakouts, this has virtually disappeared! I think I might be converted! I've had no other visible results, but I shall see what the new year brings!

eounsworth • 05/12/2017 - 22:10

Thumbs up from me, left my review and plenty of pics and ask your friends sheets.
My mates are impressed and my Mother loves Olay so much I'm buying her a bottle for Christmas.

AJ123 • 05/12/2017 - 22:56

Well after my first week I was a bit scheptical an didn't really see much improvement, but I can honestly say my skin is much softer, do I think I look younger..... I don't think so but a tad more fresh faced 😊

fluffymuffy • 06/12/2017 - 08:19

My mother in law has hinted to me what she wants for Christmas she loves the cream thanks olay makes a great gift for Christmas I love the cream had a few different comments about it but mostly people love it

Sar2017 • 06/12/2017 - 08:40

Everyone is loving the cream! Smells lovely and glides on easily not leaving a greasy residue! Bargain at the price! Who needs expensive anti aging creams when this ticks all the boxes.

Sammy03 • 06/12/2017 - 09:29

I love this cream my skin feels so soft and smooth , with all this cold weather my skin hasn’t gone dry and has a rosy glow :-) recommend this cream to everyone

cjmere • 06/12/2017 - 10:46

Love olay! Could go on about this all day to everyone! So pleased to have been chosen to take part. Will carry on using!

sidurr • 06/12/2017 - 10:54

Oh I'm absolutely loving it. I feel like I don't need a primer afterwards as my make up goes on smoothly on top of it and stays put all day.

ashtonsmam • 06/12/2017 - 11:42

Lovely cream, lovely smell and leaves face feeling soft and smooth, will definitely consider using in the future :)

Ljayne • 06/12/2017 - 18:20

Lovely product I'm using it every night. Definitely will be buying more x

Paro • 06/12/2017 - 18:25

Wowwww,,,,Love Olay for it's absolutely incredible properties and product. From packaging to use,,,everything is just great and fantastic. My skin feels lush and soft. Everybody has the same excellent analysis and want to spend more on Olay. The best cream for our skin till date.

miey • 06/12/2017 - 21:52

This cream really agrees with my skin, and makes it feel silky smooth & soft! I will certainly be buying more of this!

Lewiscat • 07/12/2017 - 00:35

I have fallen in love with this cream. It has a beautiful texture, finish and has given my skin and lovely radiance.

MissOlivia • 07/12/2017 - 08:04

Smetanka • 07/12/2017 - 12:44

Great cream, it really feels different to the other creams I've tried. It's light, but combats dryness without any problems. My skin got smoother, softer and some redness I had are slowly disappearing, I'm over the moon.

laub1981 • 07/12/2017 - 14:02

Best cream i have ever used. So light and flawless. Loads of compliments. Excellent primer also for foundation. Well impressed.

Daria • 07/12/2017 - 16:52

yes, I was really pleasantly impressed by this and I think the cream had been so good for my skin, I totally did not expect it nor seen it coming!!

I really really like it and I would be definitely going into shops and buying it again......

Goes very well under the make up and any foundation that I use, whether liquid or powder....

Sallyh76 • 07/12/2017 - 19:49

Brilliant Cream - will definitely buy in the future! Hard to believe how good my skin feels after using this relatively cheap Cream

cornelia182001 • 08/12/2017 - 01:25

Lovely cream I used before Olay cream for day and night but this one I could say is the best. Leaves skin soft, moisturised, bright... I'm using it every single day... Love it and noticed an improvement in my skin too... Looks younger 💖💖

TanniF • 08/12/2017 - 04:55

I really like this Olay face cream, it absorbs in to the skin really quickly and a little goes a long way, good value for money for a quality product.

Traceylvskev • 08/12/2017 - 06:30

Although I don’t agree with this cream being for all skin types, it does go on beautifully, the consistency is perfect, not too thick and not too runny, although half a pump is more than enough product for my face, neck and chest.

plakhani • 08/12/2017 - 08:33

This is a a really easy to use anti ageing product with little thinking involved. It covers all grounds targeting the tired eyes and the early stages of sagging.. in a really short period, i have noticed a big difference. Not too oily either

MS_Angel • 08/12/2017 - 10:36

Review done, has the final survey come out yet? I've not seen it and go on holiday next week so need to complete at the weekend!

Roadangel82 • 08/12/2017 - 11:06

This cream makes my skin feel light, aired and much better. Well done Olay.

SanteFe • 08/12/2017 - 11:47

Loving the feel of the cream. You really don’t need much either. Thumbs up.

mrsaeoliver • 08/12/2017 - 11:47

I still can't believe how we'll this cream works. Just need to find something to sort out my hair and I'll look normal!

Nlc35 • 08/12/2017 - 11:49

Having tried this out for a few weeks,I went to Superdrug and bought myself the Total Effects night cream (and a few other Olay goodies!). I do like this moisturiser very much but think I'd prefer to wear it overnight rather than throughout the day,and stick to my usual Olay day cream. Highly recommend it though.

golfinggirl • 08/12/2017 - 12:17

Soaked in lovely and smells nice, finally found a nice affordable moisturiser

nhasham • 08/12/2017 - 12:21

I've been using this cream for a few weeks now and absolutely love it. The texture, quick absorbing feel and multiple benefits in one cream just tick all the boxes for.me. I gave samples to friends and family and they have been making similar comments. Will definitely buy this when my tube runs out.

Emsyandabs • 08/12/2017 - 12:28

I was wary of using Olay as i've never used it before but it is a fantastic moisturiser and smells amazing!

natawal29 • 08/12/2017 - 12:44

Every day my skin is looking & feeling great. I love this cream!

HannahB85 • 08/12/2017 - 12:57

What a fantastic project - I've loved the day cream and it has done wonders for my skin. Best of all, I've still got lots left in the bottle so can continue to enjoy it over the coming weeks. I'll definitely be getting the night cream to go with it!

angelaede123 • 08/12/2017 - 13:25

Love this cream.. smells gorgeous, applies well, makeup sits on top lovely, however... as much as my skin is softer and looks healthier im not convinced its any smoother.. i might go back to using an eye cream with this face cream as its perfect in every other way so will definitely continue to use it x

surveyfiller7 • 08/12/2017 - 13:51

The cream is still suiting my face reallly well, especially in this cold weather. It's always tough for my skin in winter with the different indoor/outdoor temperatures, but Olay is keeping my skin smooth and moisturised, and with a reduction in my fine lines too.

Annita • 08/12/2017 - 14:14

This cream is beautiful. It makes me feel refreshed and moisturised. My skin feels soft but not congested after using it. Making it a great base for make up.

womanity • 08/12/2017 - 15:24

I have had really positive feedback from the sample users. They wanted more!

tabithakate • 08/12/2017 - 15:31

I have really loved being part of this review my skin is radiant and feels the best it has in years!
