Olay Total Effects & Olay Natural White Healthy Fairness Day Cream: Hit or Miss?

Although I was tempted to consider Olay Total Effects a few years back, I never got to the point of actually buying one.

I was using three moisturizers at the time: Derma E DMAE Creme and Jason Ester-C Creme which I bought from Healthy Options and Pervil Magic Creme, a drugstore brand which I deemed as my official skin brightener.

As it turned out, it took forever to finish even one bottle up!

When I think about it, the closest I got to purchasing Olay was last year at SaSa in Hong Kong where an Olay Package featuring a big bottle of Olay and its cleansing foam variant was being sold for around Php 400--a 50% slash down from its Philippine SRP (suggested retail price).

Who would have predicted that a simple shampoo purchase with a mini-Olay as a freebie will finally allow me to put this product to the test?

As you very well know, Olay Total Effects claims that it fights the 7 signs of skin ageing namely:
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Age spots
  • Uneven texture
  • Dryness
  • Dullness
  • Pores
My Verdict After a Three-Week Test?
Olay Total Effects is definitely a HIT!

The most noticeable result seemed to be that it was able to minimize my pores and even out my skin tone which gave me the effect of a smoother, more supple complexion.

Because of the more than favorable effects, I was drawn to purchase the Olay Total Effects 20 gram bottle (PHP 349).

Although I've experienced all these wonderful results, one thing remained elusive--the skin brightening effect that I so desperately wanted.

That was when I decided to try Olay Natural White (PHP 79 per 20 gram tube).

A quick swatch test shows that both Olay products have similar color and consistency.

When it comes to results though, Olay Natural White has something extra to offer in terms of skin brightening.

Olay Natural White claims to:
  • Lighten over-all skin tone
  • Reduce appearance of dark spots
  • Help to increase skin renewal rate
  • Keep skin well moisturized 
  • Reduce skin dullness 
My Verdict after almost two months of use?
Olay Natural White is without doubt another HIT!

I experienced similar results as to the time that I used Olay Total Effects such as minimized pores, even skin tone, more supple texture plus the skin brightening effect that I wanted marked with a more luminous complexion.

Mixing Olay Total Effects & Olay Natural White?
Just in case, you're thinking of combining the two in one go, DON'T!

I tried applying the Natural White over Total Effects for 5 days, but experienced tiny breakouts as a result.

It was quite intriguing that I garnered the positive results I wanted when I used just one Olay product at a time over a period of several weeks.

Of course, what works for me might not work for you as well.

If you want to try both products though, purchase the trial packs to help you save money just in case your skin doesn't go well with Olay.
