Does Olay Total Effects work for you?

Are you also using Olay TE? Advertisements say that 7 out of 10 women love this product. I still can't decide where in the scale I am LOL. See, I first used Olay TE in combination with Olay facial wash and a few days after, pimples came popping out. My facial skin became oily. So I stopped using both products. Then I tried Ponds' oil control facial wash and my skin became less oily. A few days later, I used Ponds with Olay TE and found it a better combination. Now I'm not sure if my clearer skin is a result of the Ponds product or of Olay TE. I don't want to discontinue using either one in case I get pimples again so I haven't yet found out which is which. How 'bout you? What's your Olay experience?

I'm also using Olay Total Effects and it works for me. I don't necessarily use it in combination with Olay facial wash and cleanser 'coz i find it expensive to use the product line. What I do is just use Eskinol whitening facial cleanser then moisturize my face with Olay TE. The effects was not really evident in the first few weeks but after 2 months of using it, I noticed that my skin was tighter and radiant and I'm realy happy with the results. As of now, I intend to continue my beauty rituals with Olay Total Effects.

Glad to have read some of the reviews on this product. Ive been using it for about a week now, and i hope it has a positive effect on my skin. but i must confess, its seems to be making my face oilier. should i stop? or it'll improve with time? by the way, i use it twice a day.

When I was younger, I used some of the Olay creams at night (forgot what they were) and I found the results really good, more radiant skin and more moisturized skin (I have dry skin types). I completely forgot Olay's products for awhile and switched to more expensive brands. Now, I use Olay Total Effect Moisturizer at night time (because I am on tight budget *laughs*) and I find it very good to firm up my skin and not too greasy. I think it tones up skin a little bit too! The main thing I notice is that my skin is firmer and tighter than before.

I remember when I was a little girl, my mom used a pink product on her face every night and the bottle says Oil of Ulay (yep, with a U) and I can't imagine what it does to the face since it doesn't smell good at all :p Good thing the fragrance on new formulations these days are so much better. I also use Olay TE at night because I discovered that applying it twice a day makes my face oily.

I used Olay TE and my skin improved a lot. My husband even commented that my skin looked great. So, I am happy with the Olay TE and I plan to use it as long as it works for me. :)

I planned to buy this stuff before but it was quite exoensive. You know what I did? I tried concocting beauty cream by myself using my kitchen ingredients. And oh my homemade creams worked well. I spent only above 30 PHP to concoct an effective cream. I am thankful I had saved a lot of money by learning how to create my own beauty recipes.

I know OLAY when i was a kid, Oil of Olay i think its a lotion, its my aunt x'mas present for my mom, it makes your skin so smooth and glowing... so when i heard Olay Total Effect, and have you heard their promo before just exchange empty bottle of a moisturizer of any brand they'll give you a 50ml bottle for free...so grabbed the change of getting one with free skin analysis...PORES is my problem and I thought my problem will be solved coz they told that Olay will minimize the pores but then its not...so i stop and tried some products again...but nothing happened so i try using Olay again..just to my skin to be soft and smooth...;)
