I’ve had the opportunity to review several of Olay’s products in the past and I have honestly been very pleased with all of them. Most recently, I tried out the OlayÆ Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer. I was excited about this one because I had seen it at the store and and I definitely use the help it provides.
Moisturizer is something I tend to be pretty lazy about. I know it’s one of the more important things when it comes to beauty routine or preserving beauty per se. But often I’ll just put some make-up on and go or wash my face, brush my teeth and hop in bed. I just think one more step can be kind of daunting. The thing about this moisturizer is not only does it moisturize, it helps with the appearance of discoloration and has some tint to it.
One of my favorite things about this moisturizer is that it really is light feeling. I don’t feel like I’m globbing a lot of thick, heavy lotion on my face. I found it convenient and most logical to put†Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer on before applying my make-up. I simply pumped it out into my hand and rubbed it gently onto my face. It really only takes a very small amount to cover my entire face. I also feel as though it helps my make-up stay on pretty well and doesn’t make things look too clumpy. I think this is a moisturizer I can put on in the morning and not really worry about putting much else on, thanks to its light tint. This is especially nice in the summer time.
I’ve always had lots of freckles and, due to hormonal changes connected to pregnancy, I also tend to have random dark spots. I know many of them fade, but some don’t, so I think I’ll continue to see this moisturizer help the overall tone. I’m also thankful it has sunscreen, as that’s another way to help prevent discoloration and uneven tone. Plus it’s one less thing I have to put on, which makes things a bit easier! I still have some work to do on my routine, but I know having a good skin-care routine will probably save time and money in the long run and that’s what I’m hoping to do by adding Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer.
