Beautyknot ~ My Skin Care Diary

Archive for February 4th, 2009



I had used the old version of Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Anti-aging Cream in few years back, and I used it in autumn/winter of Australia and South Korea. The cream was nice to be used in the dry climate due to its nourishing consistency, so I thought it was good as well in low-humidity season in Thailand after my daily moisturizer Olay White Radiance was not enough moisture in year end.


Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Anti-aging Cream has normal and gentle versions where normal version is lightly tinted and fragranced, gentle version is not tinted and fragrance free. In fact, I was expecting the new version will be better in texture but it seemed having same texture as previous formula. Despite the ingredient is re-formulated, other than that, I have not notice any difference.


I like it is runny to spread, nourishing and moisturizing, but I don’t think it improves my skin texture visibly neither few years ago nor recently. I have used up at least two bottles of the cream in the past and recently one, it didn’t give the smooth touch or nature glow to make your skin look nicer temporary like high end moisturizer, instead this cream gave oily kind of shine, very down-to-earth?


As I have combination skin, my skin is not that oily in dry weather, hence it is enough for normal day use (Eg: humidity 46%) but not enough in very dry air-conditioning environment. However, I would not want to try this in humid weather again, other than oiliness is still oily.


Generally, this is ideal for normal to dry skin. I would not buy again as I dislike the blackhead that the cream gave yet my face didn’t very like the chemical sunscreen. Promotional price at 377 baht for 50g. It lasts me for 3 months with every morning use.
