The Review

I’ve been trying out Olay Total Effects CC Cream for the past 2 weeks. My skin is very sensitive. I have a fair to medium complexion at this time, I have freckles & I’m prone to breakouts one week a month. I’m very happy with the current foundation I use on a regular basis. This is what I noticed with the CC cream.

 

Pros

Cons

  • Contains SPF 15
  • Pleasant scent – like a light sunscreen.
  • Goes on easy & smooth
  • Very lightweight
  • Gives skin a noticeable “glow”
  • Blends in well, no lines on the edges of your face
  • States on bottle you should re-apply every 2 hours.
  • Does not cover freckles or blemishes
  • Possibly too lightweight
  • Leaves fingers very dry after using & leaves your face a tiny bit taut.

 

Overall Thoughts:

I actually like the CC cream. However, the BB cream I recently tried covered blemishes incredibly well & the CC cream did not. This CC cream is more of a light moisturizer with a tint. Would I buy it again? Yes, although it doesn’t do what I wish one product could do (cover blemishes & freckles & still make you “glow” etc.) it has a lot of positive qualities I haven’t found in other foundations or creams. When they say it’s luminating, it really is. It gave my face this very fresh, clean look. Because it also smells like sunscreen it really reminds you of a beautiful summer day. It’s something I can see myself wearing on the days I don’t want heavy makeup wearing me down. Especially in the warmer months. It blends incredibly well & did not leave that noticeable mark around the edge of your face that some tinted products tend to leave. It dries almost to a very fine powder finish. You can feel it on your face when wearing it, but nowhere near like regular foundation or cover-up. As stated above I’ve only been using it for 2 weeks so I haven’t witnessed any reduction of fine lines & unfortunately it does not cover up any noticeable pores I have, but that’s not a deal breaker. I really felt that it gave me a certain glow that I haven’t been able to produce with similar products. It’s definitely staying in my line-up.
