My initial reaction having opened Olay post yesterday was definitely a positive one. Firstly, because I'm actually pumping air on my beloved Nuxelle Jeunesse (review tomorrow) and secondly because I've always had a soft spot in mo croí for Olay or Oil of Ulay as I insist on calling it. Olay Total Effects 7 Moisturiser and Serum Duo is promising some pretty big things though. Will it deliver?
|Studies find that Olay rocks, apparently.|
First Impressions: Because this is a First Look post and I've only used the product once I can only give you my first impressions with a full review to follow. Here they be:
- Aesthetics: The bottle is compact, sturdy and the pump perfect for efficient one pump applications.
- Consistency: I was more than a little taken aback by the heavy cream formula but pleasantly surprised when it absorbed quickly and left no residue or greasiness.
- Scent: This has given me pause for thought with this product to be honest. Leaning toward Sudocrem with a hint of suncream, I'm guessing the SPF 20 is to blame. It's not unpleasant by any means but I'm not sure I'm a fan.
- On the skin: Having only used it once, my make up seemed to sit nicely for the day. My skin could breathe and felt comfortable for the duration. For now, it's a win.
Olay Total Effects 7 Moisturiser and Serum Duo will be available from February priced at €23.74 (A lot more reasonably priced than the majority of serums and serum based products). While my first impressions are positive, I'm going to continue with my night time Origins routine and report back in a month with a full review.
Are you an Olay fan? Will it forever be Ulay to you too?
