Olay Total Effects 7 in One Pore Minimizing CC Cream Review

by Natasha Sebrina on September 8, 2014 · 7 comments

Hey girls,

This isn’t my first CC Cream, but it is my first CC Cream review. I picked this up at the store because I was looking for something lighter than a BB Cream and I had happened to come across this. Seeing I have ran out of my Estee Lauder CC Cream, I decided on this. I have been using this for quite a while now and I’m ready to tell you how it went down with this product. 🙂

Olay Total Effects 7 in One Pore Minimizing CC Cream

Product Description:

Olay Total Effects 7 in One Pore Minimizing CC Cream

Ingredients:

Olay Total Effects 7 in One Pore Minimizing CC Cream

Price:

RM 26.90

My Take on Olay Total Effects 7 in One Pore Minimizing CC Cream:

It’s got a smooth and watery texture, but it isn’t runny at all nor is it super firm. It’s easy to spread out on skin and honestly you won’t need much product to cover your whole face – a small dollop of this and it’s perfect for your whole face.

This was surprisingly pleasant to use. It was easy to blend into skin and it gives a very natural and undetectable finish, almost like you’re not wearing makeup. It’s also crazily lightweight and your pores could still breathe through this makeup base. Also application for this is super easy, you can use a sponge, your fingers or a brush and you will still end up with the same natural finish.
This also doesn’t clog your pores, but it does a great job at minimizing them and making them go unnoticeable. And here’s another thing, it evens out my skin tone without a problem, getting rid of my dull skin and surprisingly, this made the texture of my skin look really soft and bouncy, giving me a really healthy glow.

We all know that CC creams do not offer much coverage and this one in particular has light to medium coverage. However, this is also really hydrating and hydrates my skin all day long. It doesn’t cake on top of my skin.
Sadly, this doesn’t help with fine lines and wrinkles. It doesn’t make them more noticeable, but it doesn’t do anything to help either. Before I forget, this product does contain fragrance, but it’s nothing strong and disappears after application; however, I know there are some who dislike fragrance products.

This product isn’t very long lasting when used by itself, it will last you for 4-5 hours before it starts fading away. With a primer, it will last you all day long. I also deem this product safe to use. It hasn’t caused me any breakouts, redness, irritation and etc. Also, it’s got SPF 15 in it.

Packaging wise, this 20 gm one is tiny, slim and lightweight. It also comes in the 50g one but this is perfect for chucking into your makeup bag as it won’t take up much space nor will it make your makeup bag weigh a ton. The lid is a screw-on one and it’s sturdy and if you screw it on tight, there won’t be any messes.

Pros of Olay Total Effects 7 in One Pore Minimizing CC Cream:

  • Smooth, watery texture.
  • Isn’t runny or hard.
  • Easy to spread and blend on to the skin.
  • Not a lot of product is needed to cover the whole face.

  • Doesn’t cause breakouts, redness, irritation and etc.
  • Has SPF 15.
  • Tight cap.

Cons of Olay Total Effects 7 in One Pore Minimizing CC Cream With Sunscreen:

  • Light to medium coverage.
  • Doesn’t help with fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Contains fragrance (for those whom dislike fragranced products).
  • Isn’t very long-lasting.

Would I Repurchase Olay Total Effects 7 in One Pore Minimizing CC Cream?

I would! It’s not as good as my Estee Lauder CC Cream, but it’s still a great drugstore CC cream for a reasonable price and a dream to use. I would say it’s worth a look and a purchase.
