Olay Age Protect Anti-Ageing Cream
This is one skin care product I would highly recommend if you are just beginning to look out for some effective anti ageing treatment for your early or late twenties. Ofcourse beyond that you need more powerful ingredients packed formulations but this basic Olay range works great for 20’s & early 30’s skin especially if you have a well maintained skin. I strictly follow a good skin care regime & mostly rely on those homemade facepacks for boosting high hydration levels into my skin. This cream adds ample hydration along with the anti-ageing benefits for my skin. I am in my late twenties & fortunately haven’t encountered any laugh lines or under eye concerns yet.
It’s a basic anti ageing formulation claiming to fight with those early evolving ageing concerns like spots , fine lines & wrinkles, uneven skintone etc surprisingly without any SPF (atleast nothing mentioned on the pack). The texture is superlight almost like a watery feel with rich consistency which deeply moisturises the skin & also provides a smoother surface for your makeup to glide easily. This might be a bit heavy for oilies but can be used in winters where an extra moisture dose is required for the skin. It keeps my skin hydrated whole day without any concerns. I don’t face the problems of dark spots/ wrinkles or uneven skintone to comment precisely on the claims but it does makes my skin more radiant & healthy with each passing day. It sinks into skin easily leaving behind slight dewiness. It has got a very mild fragrance which can be sensed if sniffed hard into the tub. I have been using this since couple of months & would highly recommend especially for dry skin females.

Olay Total Effects 7 in one Anti-Ageing Serum
I included serums quite late in my skin care regime as I was mostly using pure Olive or Almond oil on my face during nights. I avoid serums during day because of the heavier moisturizing formulations I use along with the moisturizing primers/skin luminizers. I got into this serums concept with Muvazi when they sent me an amazing natural skin care kit & rest what we say is history. I loved the way how serum made my skin looking all radiant & supple without any heavy feel.
I got this serum along with the Age Protect Cream & on my 3rd bottle now! I have nothing much to say about this except that I love the so light yet emollient texture of the serum. It gets into the skin very easily without giving you any heavy feel. It claims to fight against 7 signs of ageing like the original Olay anti-ageing cream. I am not sure how it resists all those signs but on my dry skin I have two major concerns: Dullness & Dryness and this product fixes the issues amazingly. My skin looks all radiant & supple in the morning (ofcourse some credit goes to my night cream too!)without any signs of dullness. I just need two pumps every night after cleansing & toning. It spreads & sinks into the skin easily without any heavy feel, giving enough room for the night cream to follow. This serum & the Olay anti ageing cream is a fool proof combination for my dry skin. But ya since I am using this from almost a year & now planning to try out some other brands. I have started using Organic Surge Intensive Day Cream for my chilling new year vacation & loving it so far.
The only downside of this serum is the hefty price tag of 700 INR for merely 50 ml of product.
