The winter blahs have arrived. It’s February and my skin is in need of a boost to get me through until warmer, sunnier days arrive. Well, Oil of Olay, a long-time favorite of many generations, introduces the CC Cream, a product akin to the BB creams you may have been hearing a lot about recently. The CC Cream acts as an anti-aging and beauty balm formula all in one. It’s a tinted moisturizer providing coverage, plus corrective properties to fight the “seven signs of aging”, it contains SPF 15, and comes in three different shades to match your skintone.
I have used the cream for about two weeks and really like it. It’s a great light-weight moisturizer, and that it contains SPF 15 is a bonus – no need for additional moisturizers or sunscreens. I use the fair to light tint daily as “foundation”. The coverage is smooth and the color match is great, it even has a little brightener in it to give you a modest glow. I typically would not wear make-up to the pool or beach because I don’t want it running down my face while I sweat and swim, but since this cream is so light and contains SPF, I would use it during outdoor activity if I wanted a little coverage.
I have my fair share of wrinkles and something I like about this product is that it does not settle into them, making them look more obvious. I also have a slightly oily complexion and the CC cream doesn’t seem to clog my pores or cause breakouts. The tone and color of my skin have looked pretty good since using the product as well.
The price point is reasonable and you get a lot of product in the pump dispenser (one pump is enough to cover my face). It’s a great choice for a fresh look every-day. You can buy the Olay Total Effects CC Cream Buy Here Find out what others are saying about Olay and their amazing products on
