Review of Olay Total Effects Cooling Hydration

This is sponsored content BlogHer and Olay.



As you’ve probably noticed by now, I’m going to be having a baby – soon!

Being pregnant really messes with your hormones. It does weird things to your hair, nails and even your skin. In my case, it dries me out terribly. My skin gets really, really flaky. I also have really sensitive skin and there are a lot of products that I just can’t use. They break me out, turn me red and give me rashes.

So I was pretty excited when given the opportunity to test out a new product from Olay called Olay Total Effects Cooling Hydration. Olay has such a good reputation and I knew that whatever this new product was – it would be top of the line and it would also be gentle on my skin.

The first thing I instantly loved about the product was actually the way it’s used – it’s not in a jar where I have to dip my hand in it and get all messy. Call me weird but I’m not a fan of products that come in jar. All you have to do is use the pump top to disperse the moisturizer.

Now onto the actual product itself – you can use it daily which is great. I can put it on every morning under my makeup, and it feels fresh, clean and cool. The best part? It lasts all day. Some products tend to have a really strong smell and since I’m prone to migraines, I just can’t handle them. Total Effects Cooling Hydration has a soft scent and it doesn’t bother me in the least, in fact, I barely notice it. My thoughts? This is my new go to moisturizer. It lasts all day with one application. The scent is soft and hardly noticeable. And it’s made my skin hydrated and pretty again!

FFeel like your moisturizer’s fresh feeling can’t last all day? New Olay Total Effects Cooling Hydration instantly cools and leaves skin with a moisturized fresh feeling that lasts from morning to night. The lightweight formula also fights 7 signs of aging for younger looking skin.

  129. My skin care regimen exists solely because of my wife. If it wasn’t for her, using chapstick would be the extent of my efforts. She introduced me to sunblock, and moisturizer.

    When did I realize I needed these things? Well, I didn't. She did, actually:)

    I’d like something to smooth out fine lines.
