Another Olay Product I love

olay total effects  tone  correcting

Now that I’m working from home full time, I rarely put makeup on unless I’m going out {and even then, on occasion, I don’t}. However, I’ve noticed this lack of getting ready in the morning before I go to work — even if it is just in the other room — sort of makes me feel like I’m less than professional and might as well wear pajamas all day long. Now, in my fifth month of working from home, I’m finding the need to sort of revamp my work-at-home wardrobe and make getting ready a priority each and every morning.

But a full face of makeup just seems like overkill. So when I was sent Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer to review I thought, why not at least apply this one simple step in the morning after washing my face — get the benefits of the anti-aging total effects and smooth, radiant, glowing skin?

In my sun-worshipping 20s, I earned some less than pretty pigmentation spots, which even makeup doesn’t always cover. But, after my first application of Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer (I use Fair to Light), they were instantly reduced. I mean, it isn’t called “tone correcting moisturizer” for nothing, but I guess I was expecting it to go on more sheer, like a lotion. And while it wasn’t as thick as a liquid foundation, if not blended well, those unwanted and noticeable makeup smudges randomly appear. But I love it as a daily moisturizer sans any other makeup, and I love that i’s got SPF in it so I don’t have to add another step.

I decided to try Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer under makeup as well, and this is where it really won me over. I use a mineral power foundation with a moisturizer — and my recent lotions haven’t been cutting it.Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer reduced the appearance of fine lines AND dark spots, evening out my skin tone and giving me the perfect canvas for applying powder foundation over it. And because it’s more of a moisturizer than a foundation, it didn’t make me feel like I was wearing double the makeup. It’s my go-to moisturizer to wear under makeup now.

On top of the visible wonders I see from using Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer, it’s supposedly fighting the seven signs of aging while I’m wearing it, including free-radical-defense and gentle exfoliation, which improves surface cell turnover. I LOVE products that are working overtime while I’m reaping the present and future benefits. Seriously, I’m hooked! I honestly can’t believe how happy I’ve been with all the Olay products I’ve been sent to review. I’m not sure why I’m surprised, but they blow me away every time!
