Make Up Review: Olay Total Effects Pore Minimizing CC Cream

8:49:00 PM

I bumped into this product after I ran out of my everyday liquid foundation which was the Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation. This is my first time to tried CC cream and I was excited as it offers more benefits than BB creams. After using it for straight 2 weeks, here is my review. *drum rolling*

Where I bought it? Southstar Drugstore (see how I urgently needed this hahaha)
How much? 499php for 20g
Other locations: All leading supermarkets and drugstores

Info at the back

Coverage. It is light to medium coverage and lightweight on the skin. If you want a full coverage to cover blemishes and discolorations, this is not the product for you. However, this CC cream gives luminosity on the face. It does its job when it says "Pore Minimizing" as you will notice the big difference upon applying it on the skin as your pores get smaller. I used my Maybelline Clear Smooth Shine Free Pressed Powder to set.
Swatch; Light shade
Staying Power. Given that I have an oily and acne-prone skin, my skin gets oilier after one hour of using it. I blotted the oil and another hour had passed my face was began shiny again. Ang bilis humulas. A big no no for oily skin. I tried to use primer but it still gives me the same result. I also noticed I develop small bumps on the side of my face huhuhuh

Overall, this product did not work for me and I do not recommend this to someone who has oily skin. 

Much Love,

  1. I shied away from CCs after encountering the 'smart' ones that changes color depending on your skin temp. It always ended up way too pale pink on me, so umayaw na ako. This one, though coverage isn't all that color corrective, is at least somewhat moisturizing. I also like that the formula is light and easy to blend. But I agree with the oily factor. I think I'd just use this on my dry cheeks and avoid the T-zone.

    1. Same here sis, I love how healthy my face looks after the application, yun nga lang I gave up on using this because it caused me break out. So I gave it to our helper nalang.

      Thanks for dropping by! :)
