When it comes to drugstore skin care products, Olay is one of the best known, most reputable brands.  They’ve developed their Total Effects line to be a 7-in-1 solution to provide seven anti-aging benefits in one cream.  With Total Effects, you can improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles, smooth skin’s texture, even out skin tone, brighten dull skin, minimize pores, lighten age spots, and of course increase skin’s moisture.  All of this with the intended result of more beautiful, younger looking skin.  Olay Total Effects Night Firming Cream is the nighttime product in this line.

Olay Total Effects Night Firming Cream ReviewOlay Total Effects Night Firming Cream Ingredients and How They Work

Olay Total Effects Night Firming Cream is non comedogenic, and has been tested by dermatologists.  The formula basically consists of 3 active ingredients:

  • Glycerin attracts moisture to the skin to help it appear more dewy and plump.  It may also improve the natural ability of the skin to protect itself against further damage.
  • Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein also provides nourishing moisture, but the primary benefit it provides is minimizing pores, giving your skin a smoother, more flawless appearance.
  • VitaNiacin is a blend of Vitamin E, Vitamin B5 and Vitamin B3 that works to smooth and exfoliate skin.  It has been studied and shown to moisturize, improve firmness, decrease redness, and minimize the appearance of wrinkles and lines.

Olay Total Effects Night Firming Cream comes in a tub, and can be used once or twice daily.  Simply apply gently with your fingertip, and smooth it into your entire face and neck area, making sure to keep it out of your eyes.  It can be used alone or worn under makeup.
