Drugstore Buy of the Week - Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Moisturizer + Serum Duo with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15

There are quite a few  "alphabet" creams (BB/CC) which offer a multitude of benefits perfect for the multi-tasking women without a lot of time, counter space (or money) on her hands.
If you also want skincare that can prime your skin for those aforementioned cremes and offer lots of complementary healthy benefits at the same, look no further than Olay Total Effects 7 In One Moisturizer + Serum Duo With Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Fragrance-Free .  

This little drugstore wonder happens to deliver Total Effects’ most concentrated formula, along with a  Broad Spectrum SPF 15 to fight the seven signs of aging: fine lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness, visible pores, uneven skin tone, uneven texture, dryness and dullness. Not only that, but if you have drier and/or more mature skin that also love using a serum daily - this alsoincludes that in one step!

I easily released one pump of the cream into my hands for application (It's very concentrated and spreads easily - so I suggest start with this amount first, only add more if you really need it).  The texture and consistency of the product is creamy, but a bit thicker than you might expect.  However, once I began smoothing it on my skin, I loved the silky texture which had that serum-like feel.  It absorbed almost on contact without leaving any residue or white film from the sun screen.  The scent is very faintly floral/traditional sunscreen, and quickly dissipates.

After applying the finish is semi-matte and my skin was nicely hydrated and smooth.  This was the perfect prep for makeup and worked very well with anything I used over it, such as BB Cream/Foundation or Powder.  After use for just a few weeks daily, my skin definitely seemed brighter and smoother, and I loved the little massage ritual I had with it early in the morning before doing my makeup. 

For those of you who want quality anti-aging care, sun protection and the luxe feel of a serum, (and all for about $17)  - this is absolutely a must have product for your skincare routine  - RLB
