NEW TO MY WARDROBE

The Review: Olay Total Effects Pore Minimizer CC Cream

- SPONSORED POST - 

After three years of hanging around this area of the internet, you guys know me well enough by now to know that I love two things: lightweight bases and a "I woke up like this after 10 hours sleep" glow. Especially that last one, because let's not pretend that I don't write my posts in the middle of the night, beauty products on one side, bad reality television on the other, I digress. Enter Olay's new CC Cream...

To celebrate the launch of their Total Effects CC Cream, Olay are holding #EverydayFlawless Week with a different daily social activity every day this week. #EverydayFlawless is all about perfected and polished skin and each day they'll be showing you how to achieve that flawless look.

As part of the #EverydayFlawless week I've been testing out the Olay Total Effects Pore Minimizer CC Cream, a super-charged multi-tasking cream with +40% vitamins. For me it's a lightweight base that melts into the skin to give a glowing and plumping effect (helping you to achieve the #EverydayFlawless look).

At first I wasn't too sure on how much coverage it would give, as it seemed to be rather thick as it emerged from the tube. However once you begin to work the product in it melts and becomes so easy to work with, blending seamlessly into the skin. It gives a light coverage, but helps to smooth over imperfections, negating the need for anything heavier and helping to give a completely natural look to the skin. Best of all, I like to apply it with my fingers - it gives a much more natural finish and is super speedy as the warmth of the fingertips helps it to blend so quickly.

In the photos above I'm completely shunning any concealer, and looking at these was when I realised just how brightening it is. It uses smart colour technology to correct red or darker patches of skin and smooths over to minimise the appearance of pores and even out the skin tone. Leaving you with radiant, more even toned skin whilst the Vitaniacin Multi-Vitamin Complex in the cream takes care of your skin in the long term.

As an avid radiant base lover I was really impressed with the CC Cream, it gives flawlessly beautiful skin in one simple step, but without the professional tools and high end price tag! Definitely one for lightweight radiant base lovers to check out on your next boots blitz - or if you're more of an online shopping kind of girl you can find it here.

  29. Interesting range. I moved away from drugstore skincare products a while ago but I do have only fond memories of my time with Olay. Will definitely be looking into this as a great drugstore BB or CC cream is definitely something I'd like to have.

  30. I tried a CC cream from another brand and sadly it broke me out. This looks lovely, but I am always worried they will cause an allergic reaction.
