I am a huge beauty junkie and was thrilled to be sent some Olay Total Effects Wake Up Wonder to review for my blog.
Here’s the science bit: Olay Total Effects Wake Up Wonder is a 7-in-1 anti-ageing moisturiser to wake up tired looking skin. This is thanks to its new lightweight anti-ageing formula with mint extract.
1, Line Minimisation : Helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
2, Hydration : For a healthy, radiant glow
3, Firming : Hydrates for firmer skin appearance
4, Dullness : Improves skin surface dullness
5, Exfoliation : Smoothes and evens skin texture
6, Pore Appearance : Helps minimise the appearance of pores
7, Antioxidant : Helps to prevent free radical damage to skin’s surface layers
and (mostly) yummy mummy’s verdict
I have to confess that this is the first time that I have ever tried an Olay product and I have to say that I was impressed and this compared well to any of the usual high end moisturisers that I use, which is high praise indeed.
The moisturiser comes in a tube with a pump, which I love as it makes it much easier to dispense. I used about a hazelnut size of the product for my face and neck and it felt really rich but absorbed easily and was completely non-greasy. I can be prone to dry spots and whilst using the Olay Total Effects, I didn’t have any dry breakouts. I found that it kept my skin wonderfully hydrated all day long.
It contains mint extract and smells absolutely fabulous – so fresh but not at all overpowering. In the couple of weeks that I have been using the Wake Up Wonder for, I have definitely seen a reduction in visible pores and my skin looks and feels great!
I absolutely love this moisturiser and this gets a huge manicured thumbs up from me!
