Olay Total Effects Review – Easy Florida Mornings!

What do little boys, puppies, and a home business have in common? All three of them start stampeding in the early morning, and they don’t leave much time for primping.

I wasn’t sure if I would ever make time for facial moisturizer in the mornings, but now that I’ve tried Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer, little boys will just have to wait a bit! After all, the Florida sun is often a hazard to my light-skinned face.

Not only does the moisturizer give me an SPF 15 coverage, but it also is starting to make some spots on my face (gifts from the sun, I suppose) melt away. This product is also supposed to help reduce discoloration and eye puffiness, but I can’t report on that since I don’t have those issues. It smells faintly of sunscreen, although the smell is not noticeable after it dries.

After using the fair-light color moisturizer for a short time, I already feel more confident when I look in the mirror. If you have darker skin, the moisturizer also comes in light to medium and in medium to deep colors, so you can use this on any complexion. Also, even if you are in your early 20s, your skin can still be damaged by the sun, so I recommend that you start using this or a similar product to protect your face. However, if you’re the sort who likes all-natural ingredients, I still recommend your own homemade moisturizers, as the Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer has key ingredients like niacinamide, acetyle glucosamine, and panthenol.

This moisturizer absorbs very quickly into my skin without streaks, however, it does make my face feel slightly greasy; less than a sunscreen but more than my normal moisturizer. The time saved in only having to apply one product for moisturizing, foundation and sunscreen is definitely worth it for me!

If you want to try out this moisturizer for yourself, you can buy it now at olay.com. As of right now, I can’t find an alternate place to buy this product–even amazon.com doesn’t have it yet.

    I just wash my face and go. Most of my “beauty routine” happens at night.

    My morning routine is simple – wash my face, light moisturizer with SPF and very light make-up

    Mornings are not good for beauty routines in my case. I’m not a morning person, barely functional, and adding a beauty routine is very difficult. I do almost everything at night before bed.
