Olay is one of the great drugstore brands that has been around since my Nana`s era. A trusted brand that is changing with the times. I was pleasantly surprised that Olay has the new pore minimizer/ CC Cream.
I admit I am very lazy when it comes to skincare. Yes, sorry to say, this is one reason I make it a point to select products that I can actually maximize. The less time I spend on my face the more time I get to spend doing other things like spend time with my kids or writing .
I was happy a lot of drugstore beauty brands have joined the bandwagon started by Korean brands. With BB Creams (Beauty Balms) and CC Creams from different known brands. I suppose it is but natural since lot of women have started looking for Hallyu brands because of the fantastic benefits these products have on skin.
I have tried my share of BB Cream and I found that BB creams and I are not compatible. In fact, I have had oiliness and break out problems while using BB Creams. It was a great surprise to me that CC Creams are more to my taste. See my CC Cream review here.
I got this Olay Total Effects BB Cream (Medium) at the Sampleroomph site.

I used this product for 10 days straight.
- Based on my own experience it does minimize pore with constant use.
- It has a light scent
- It is easy to apply and glides to skin really well
- Contains SPF 15 (Sunscreen)
- Light and non-greasy texture, easily absorbed
- Fits medium toned skin also as one for fair skin
- My face turned oily after 3 hours of using this product
- I also had some mild break outs while using this product on my T-Zone
- It has this dewy effect that I am not into since I have combination skin tone.
- I did not see my skin even out as I would have liked because it was so sheer
- I found it a bit pricy for the size.
I use the CC Cream as my make-up primer, like I said, I don`t like to put a lot of things on my face coz I am too darn lazy. I would have want my skin to even out, you can see in my photo that it did not do all that much even with light powder foundation. If you have normal to dry skin young skin this would be perfect for you.
What is your favorite make -up primer?
Until next time!
