I am one of these girls that rarely leave the house without makeup on. It doesn’t mean I’m all dolled up. It means I don’t leave the house without foundation. I like my skin to at least appear even. Covering up spots or imperfections. Due to this I have had my problems on and off with my skin. There are times when I wish I had perfect skin and didn’t need any makeup. I had heard of a tinted moisturizer but have never seen it in the store or purchased one. However I recently had the chance to try out a new product boy Olay called Total Effects.
I really had no preconceived thoughts on how well it would work or if I would like it. I received two different bottles (due to an error) the fair to light and light to medium. I definitely prefer for my skin a light to medium tinted moisturizer. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. I do have to be careful because for some reason in the last year my eyes have become very sensitive to any new product. This works well for me as long as I do not get it around my eyes. So last week I did something I thought I would never do, I left the house with no foundation on. I put on only the tinted moisturizer from Olay and a few other touch-ups like mascara, lipstick, etc. and I took off for work. I decided to snap a photo before I went into work to just give you a peek.
Photo Proof of Total Effects
As you can see you really can not tell at all that I don’t have foundation on. Olay from Total Effects does a great job of evening out the imperfections and provided moisture and SPF to my skin all at the same time. I absolutely LOVE this and plan on keeping some on hand at all times. This is definitely great for the weekend when I bum around the house but want to look presentable in case I run out or run into a neighbor. Not only that but according to Olay this product helps fight the signs of aging (which would be great for those little wrinkles around my eyes up there)
