It occurred to me that I should probably start thinking about anti-aging products. I do use SPF in the daytime all year round but I wondered could I be doing more. At the moment fine lines aren’t visible but I want to be prepared.
The problem is that I’m still prone to breakouts on my chin. This is a bit of an annoying situation since most anti-aging moisturisers are too rich for my skin and will no doubt end in a major breakout. So I started my search for a product that is designed for my age and my skin type. It has not been a very easy or successful search but I did come across Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Anti-Aging plus Blemish Control in Boots.
I have been using this morning and night for a month now. I decided it was time to share my thoughts on this product.
It contains beta hydroxy acid and 1.5% salicylic acid (for those with breakouts). I have it on good authority that this moisturiser had a low ph which could irritate sensitive skin, although it didn’t irritate mine.
I have been applying this product straight after cleansing with All About Carrotts cleanser, blending in with my fingertips. I’m not mad about the fragrance although the texture is silky and light.
I’m not stoked by the effects. It’s okay but I didn’t notice any difference to my skin at all. I did expect to see an improvement to the breakout on my chin but alas, ’twas not to be. Maybe it’s too much to expect a product to clear my skin and help prevent the signs of aging forming.If you know of one you must share!
Have you tried this? What do you think of Olay as a brand?
