Great everyday moisturiser
After a few unsuccessful attempts at trying Olay products, I have finally found one that doesn't irritate my sensitive temperamental skin.
I like the sleek pump style bottle because it makes it easy to dispense the correct amount for each use, one pump is more than enough for my face and neck. The moisturiser itself is a nice and creamy consistency, which is easy to smooth over my face and is very quickly absorbed. I love the fact that it is fragrance free too, because my skin doesn't like products with fragrances in them.
Since using this moisturiser my skin has become more soft and I haven't had any blemishes either. I would thoroughly recommend this Olay sensitive moisturiser to anyone with sensitive skin who is looking for a great everyday moisturiser which won't irritate or clog up your skin!

Smells lovely but still can't use Olay
I bought this after reading a few reviews by some favourite BH reviewers.I found that my sensitive skin reacted with the ingredients in this moisturiser, which doesn't suprise me because I have never been able to use any Olay moisturisers. I'm sure this would be perfect for anyone with slightly sensitive skin. Just be wary of not putting it on right after moisturising, that hurt my skin more!

Finally found THE moisturiser...
I have acne prone and sensitive skin. Was prescribed some cream by the doctor and the cream has dried out my skin really bad. After reading the reviews here, I went and got myself this day cream without the SPF. Didn't expect much from it because drugstore brands normally make my skin break out. However, I am very impressed with the result, and am glad that my skin is calm and smooth. No inflammation, no breakouts! And for that price, I will definitely stick with this moisturiser.

great everyday moisturiser for sensitive skin
i love the handy pump bottle and packaging of this product - looks very sleek. i was very keen to try this as i suffer from sensitive skin and was impressed with the results. i use it every morning, and a little goes along way. it glides on easily and absorbs into my skin without leaving a greasy film on the surface, and leaves my skin looking even and provides a great base for make up too.

Another fab product from Olay
Thank you BH for letting me trial Total Effects Sensitive SPF 15. I've always been a fan of Olay!
This little beauty comes in a slimline tube which fits perfectly in the palm your hand and also your handbag. The pump is easy to use and I find just one pump is enough for my whole face and neck. The cream has a nice consistency and is absorbed quickly into my skin without leaving a greasy residue like most moisturisers with SPF. I wouldn't say the scent is strong but it is there. I suffer from eczema and found this didn't irritate it at all, if anything I saw an improvement as it reduced the dryness and also some of the redness.
I'm not sure if I would use this product at night what with the SPF 15. My skin tone has evened out a little since using this product. I would definitely use it again! Another happy customer :-)

Olay does it Again
As a long time fan of Olay Total Effects, I was really happy to be trialling the new sentitive Total Effects. I love the new packaging and the long tube design is a modern take on the other Total Effects packaging.
The cream felt lovely upon application though I did feel that my skin could have used more moisture during the day. My skin was left very soft but occasionally I felt a bit of a tight feeling due to my skin being dry (probably from the effects of Winter).
I did not find the cream to be moisturising enough to be used under foundation, and when I wore it under my makeup,my foundation cracked and my skin flaked leaving a rather unappealing appearance :(
Upon using the cream everyday (I used it morning and night) though, I did get excellent results in my skin's appearance. My skin has become very even, soft and smooth and looks relaxed.
I defeinitely recommend Total Effects Sensitive to everyone as I did receive great results from this procudt and I have always felt Olay products are lovely to use. It's also very sweet to be using a product our Grandmother's and Great Grandmother's swore by.

When I first used this, I did find my skin overreacted to the serum, so I stopped using for a while and also subsequently used less when applying. So even though it is made for people with sensitive skin, it is not always the case. By the end of the first week, I think my skin adapted to the new serum, so I didn't have further problems.
I started wearing it under my make up every day. I like that it seems to complement my foundation quite well. It says it can minimize the appearance of pores, which ultimately means I don't have to use as much product. I did notice my pores were minimized, but not significantly within the duration of the trial. Perhaps in another week or two I might see something.
After two weeks of trial, I did notice my skin look softer and brighter. Bonus, it as SPF properties! so I know the serum is looking out for me when I'm not thinking about it.
I also love that it doesn't clog pores. All too often I find myself having to stop using a perfectly good moisturiser because it conflicts with my combination skin.
I am divided as to whether I would purchase this again. On the one hand, it is a bit pricey if all I am using it for is a moisturizer, however I use only a small amount each time I applied and noticed that this would probably last longer than my regular moisturizer with similar outcome.

A great day cream
I love Olay products, so trialling this one was very exciting. Love the packaging sleek, thin bottle with a pump, just perfect.
As this is a day cream I applied it once in the morning under makeup. I'm really impressed with this product.
It applies really smoothly on the skin and feels light. Absorbs really quickly which is great.
The SPF is great for protecting the skin.
This has made my skin softer and smoother overall.
Definitely a great product.

Total Effects Sensitive SPF 15
I would never have thought to use an Olay product. My presumptions were, Olay is for the mature woman. Back in the day, when it was known as Oil of Ulan, my mother used this and so assumed it was for the mature lady and for the rich formulas they use (especially the anti ageing range), I would never think to use them on myself.
Olay have released a day moisturizer, which is designed for sensitive skin. The product come in a cylindrical shaped pump bottle, which not only does it look good on my vanity - it is also fantastic to get the amount you want for your application.
The Olay day moisturizer is easy to apply on and leaves a lovely soft, finish, and does not leave an oily shiny slick on my forehead.
I love the fact that my skin did not clog up whilst trialling this product as I have combination skin and my skin tends to clog up easily. So this is a winner for me. :)

Perfect moisturiser for me!
I've actually never thought of using Olay and have been using more expensive brands like MAC. But I tried this and it actually worked and suit my sensitive skin. It also hydrates my very dry skin quite well and I like how it has SPF 15 although I would prefer it to be SPF 30 so I still wear sunscreen over this moisturiser.
Plus I also like the packaging with the pump which gives you control in how much moisturiser comes out.
Overall it's a great product but I would like it to have had SPF 30+ and another thing is it's quite pricey for 50ml bottle and I pay just a bit more for another moisturiser.
