Olay Total Effects 7 in One Anti Blemish Moisturiser Review

I have actually been using this moisturiser for a little under 6 months now and I absolutely love it. I have always struggled to find a moisturiser that works for me. I have found some okay and able to get me by, but I have never found them to be of any benefit for my skin. They have always just been more of a layer between my skin and makeup :/

So one day when in Tesco I found that they had discounted a large amount of their skin care and beauty items, many seemed damaged and it honestly looked like a shelf must have collapsed and they had to discount everything. Amongst the ruins I found the Olay Total Effects 7 in One Anti Blemish Moisturiser. At first I was put off by the 'anti-aging' claim as being in my 20's, its not what I am looking for yet. Then I saw that it was anti-blemish and actually very cheap due to the discount so I thought I would give it a go.

Straight away I noticed a difference and this only got better over time. The best thing I noticed was that it does live up to its claim regarding its 'anti-blemish' properties. It contains Salicylic Acid, which is known for its great anti-blemish properties and is widely used in acne and spot treatments. I noticed a significant improvement in the number of breakouts I had (basically 0) after a couple of weeks. I also like that it feels very calming on my skin. It is not heavy, it is light but and silky but not watery and feels very nourishing. It sinks into the skin really well and feels quite refreshing. I find it also sits nicely underneath my make-up. 

I think it is a great all round moisturiser. I would highly recommend purchasing if you have been struggling for a while to find a nice, reliable, balanced moisturiser. Especially if you struggle with breakouts and slightly troublesome skin.

Whats your favourite moisturiser?

Let me know!



  1. Glad you found a moisturiser that you really like. I also found a few lovely ones that work well on my skin, I keep experimenting though as I am a beauty blogger myself, so I can't settle for one.. :)

  2. Thanks! Do you find it better to use one consistency better or do you find changing frequently to be more beneficial?
