It leaves my skin looking healthy and hydrated. The coverage is good enough for me to use everyday with a light dusting of mineral powder. The color looked light in the bottle, but was perfect for my skin tone. It's replaced my foundation completely.
I am a medium-complected African-American woman who loves this product. For me, it blends in well, it's not too thick (like another $40 CC cream I bought) and I can wear it to the gym and it does not come off on my towel. I pump it only one time and rub it in well and it matches my skin tone perfectly. HOWEVER (!!!), when I get a suntan, I can't use this shade. I have asked on thier FaceBook page, and I'm asking now. PLEASE, PLEASE make this in at least one shade darker than the current offerings.
I have really sensitive skin, and I'm allergic to most of the products out there, so I decided to give this product a try since I had used Olay products on my face before and they hadn't made me break out. I also had a lot of dark marks from previous breakouts that were taking forever to fade.
After about a week of using this, I noticed that my skin was starting to look a lot better. The dark marks were visibly fading, and the redness was almost gone.
I was definitely impressed with how well (and quickly) this product worked for me.
My only complaint is that I'm a redhead with very white/fair skin, and this is just a bit too dark for me.
I was excited to buy this product, having seen & heard so much about it. What a disappointment! The light to medium color provides no color/tone correction whatsoever and feels a little oily. Considering how expensive it is, I expected a better product. I will go back to my previous product, a BB cream that is less costly and works beautifully.
Upon reading the other reviews on this product, I was surprised that there was so much disappointment. This is the "light to medium" color I'm talking about. I've been using this since it was in the Definity line which is now discontinued. However the product is NOT discontinued. Someone wrote in that it's not the same as the original and the ingredients are not the same. THAT IS SO NOT TRUE. When I purchased this after the line changed, i compared the ingredients on the new bottle with the one I still had at home from the Definity line. They are the same exact ingrdients as before. I use this after my washup routine and rosacea prescription topical treatment. I use Regenerist Serum, total effects eye cream and the Tone Correcting cream. You don't need very much (maybe that's why the reader thought it was "slick"). I wouldn't say it gives complete coverage. It is sheer as it is a MOISTURIZER with tint. I do use full coverage makeup after. But this is a very nice moisturizer and the broad spectrum spf helps. It also has no fragrance. I made sure of that as I hasve sensitive skin, prone to redness. Hope this review helps.
I love Olay skin care products and have been using them for years. I recently tried this product since I wanted a tinted moisturizer with sunscreen and love other products in the Total Effects line (it's my favorite). However, I may be taking this one back to the store. It makes my face look really oily. I keep blotting hoping to make it less shiney, but the glow doesn't go away. Really wish Olay would reduce the "luminosity" or make this available without it.
This CC Cream is exactly what I need: easy to use, excellent natural color, impressive skin improvement within the first two days. My skin along the jawline and on the forehead felt like sandpaper before, literally. The CC Cream has eliminated those problems completely. No more sandpaper nor flakes. My skin now feels like it did when I was in my teens, maybe even better than back then. It's easy to use, has a mild fragrance, keeps my skin hydrated and dewy in feel and in look, and fits into my very simple routine quite easily. All I add is a touch of mascara, a light bit of mineral blush, and some lip gloss. People ask me what I'm doing different to look healthier and I'm glad to recommend CC Cream to all of them. I will never be without this cream unless it's removed from the market. Thanks Olay!
I've used the BB cream when it first came out (from another mfg), but when I saw a "correcting' cream by Olay, i quickly purchased a bottle to try it out. Light and easy to apply with makeup sponge, and with a little bronzing power and light eye make up, it stays on all day. I've had compliments from other women at the office who say my face/skin looks great (!) That's never happened before. A little pricey, but will last a long time since you don't need to apply a lot. I'm a long time Olay customer, so these types of products are very much appreciated.
I love my Total Effects daily moisturizer, so I was convinced I would love the new CC cream. I saw advertising long before finding it in local stores. I was so disappointed. The swirl blend did not blend evenly on my face, and I got odd silverly flecks that brushed off my face. I ultimately threw out the 3/4 full bottle after several different tries. I'm sticking with my Total Effects moisturizer and looking for a different BB solution for my very fair skin.
I bought a bottle of Definity tinted moisturizer w/ sunscreen a while back, and I really liked it. I expected to continue using that product for a long time. Unfortunately, it was discontinued.
This Total Effects tinted moisturizer w/ sunscreen seems to be the replacement for it. I used it for the first time yesterday. My first reaction was that it didn't seem to cover as well as the Definity version did. More important, by an hour or so later, my face was itching like crazy! It took several hours and washing my face at least twice for the itching to start going away. I've never had that happen with a facial product before.
Unfortunately, I didn't keep the receipt, and I don't even remember where I bought it, so I can't try to get a refund. I'm disappointed and angry. In my opinion, they took a really good product and ruined it.
I have been using Olay CC Cream – Total Effects Tone Correcting Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Fair-to-Light product for 4 month! I use daily, with or without more foundation. Great coverage and love the way it feels on my skin. I put this product on after Total Effects Tone Correcting Eye Treatment. Be patient with it as it took me about 6 months of using it to see a noticeable difference. I Greatly Recommended!
This is an old product with a new label. It does not live up to the hype. It's really just the old "tinted moisturizer" they've sold in the past. It did nothing to correct my dark spots, simply covers them, and not very well.
I have been trying to find a face cream that will really moisturize and look natural and this is it! I have combination, prone to acne skin, and this leaves my skin looking so nice, soft, and natural. I use it about 3 times a week and I do see improvment the day after using it on my fine lines. However, the smell is so bad, I have had people ask me what the smell was and I am just standing by them. It is on my fingers after application, I can smell it on my face, and the next day I can still pick up the scent! I really love the way this product works/looks on my skin but the smell is such a turn off.
I purchased this as well as the "Total Effects Moisturizer with a Touch of Foundation". This one has a MUCH better consistency and color. The other one was way too thick and way, way too dark (too much pigment). I don't like to cover my face with thick or heavy foundations and makeup, so I much prefer this CC cream and hope it works. The only thing that prevents me from giving this more stars is the fact that it gives my face a slight tingle/burn feeling and looks a bit shiny/greasy. I'll give this one a little while longer and see what happens. Still hopeful this one will be a winner.
I had just recently started using CC cream. I use it as my foundation on most days. I love it. I recommended to my best friend she loves it too!!! I no longer use a moisturizer during the day this covers all the bases :) I do put a powder over it to set my makeup like blush and it tends to get a little greasy feeling by end of day, but overall this stuff is freaking awesome :) Thank you! I do use other products by Olay but now I think my skin care line is going to be all Olay :)
I loved it the 1st 2 days left my skin looking good I didnt have no wear no make up but after 2days i have noticed that my face has been itching a lot and my neck also that I had to returned the product back to my job.
I tried 3jugsof this stuff and I want to tell you it is much too expensive for all the sio called good that it does. You have a good product in the Olay beauty cream. Why cant you let well enoughalone?
I usually buy a separate moisturizer with SPF 15 and then a liquid makeup. I decided to try this because I had a coupon. I was a little worried about coverage. I have used it for a month. I am 61 and I really like it! My face doesn't look as 'made up'. It looks more natural. I do use a concealer or a liquid makeup on any blemishes.
