My mom has been using Olay total effects day cream since at least 5 years. When she saw the advertisement of Olay total effects day cream with touch of foundation, she asked me to get it as soon as I saw it in the market or online. She has been using this cream since atleast 2 weeks and since I am at home, I thought I will review it. I am reviewing this cream mostly on her behalf, though I did try it myself to check out the effects of the foundation it has.
Rs 749 for 50 g.
About the product:
Fights 7 signs of ageing with a proven vitamin-rich anti-ageing complex PLUS a touch of sheer foundation for younger looking even toned skin.
Apply liberally to cleansed face and neck twice a day.
My mom’s experience with this product:
Olay total effects day cream with touch of foundation comes in an opaque, cylindrical bottle with a black pump dispenser and a transparent cap. The packaging is similar to Olay total effects 7-in-1 anti ageing cream. The color of the bottle is pale yellow. The black dispenser ejects out appropriate amount for a single use and ensures that there is no product wastage. The entire bottle will last for about 3 months.
My mom uses this cream every morning after cleansing her face. It is beige in color and doesn’t have very thick or runny consistency. It is soft to touch and has a nice soothing fragrance. It spreads easily on the face and blends very easily. It doesn’t feel heavy at all. It doesn’t make skin oily or greasy. It works as an excellent moisturiser. Though it doesn’t make skin oily in winters, my mom avoids using Olay total effects cream in summers because it makes her skin oily in summers. Since this cream has foundation too in it, I guess it will be difficult to wear it in summers too. We have extremely hot and humid weather here in summers but if you work in air conditioned environment, you can give it a try in summers too.
Since it has foundation in it (according to the claims), it works as a tinted moisturiser. With this cream, there is no need to apply any other moisturiser beneath it or any foundation over it. It provides even coverage to skin and evens out skin tone. It hides minor imperfections, acne scars or blemishes. It conceals under eye areas to some extent too. It hides fine lines and under eye circles to some extent too. It provides a nice glow to face. The hydrating effect remains for about 4-5 hours. It reduces fine lines too because of the anti-ageing effect.

Will I repurchase/ do I recommend?
Yes. Absolutely. If you like Olay Total effects day cream and you are looking for a good tinted moisturiser; you should definitely give it a try. it works as an excellent tinted moisturiser and even like a light coverage foundation, but whether you will able to use it in summers depends upon the environment in which you stay and your skin.
