Just what ARE the "Seven Signs of Aging"?

Pros:fragrance free, leaves skin feeling soft, absorbs quickly

Cons:Expensive; does not do all it promises

The Bottom Line: If you are looking simply for a great moisturizer, look not further - This product delivers.


The makers of Oil of Olay's Total Effects Visible Anti-Aging Complex promise that this product will reduce the Seven Signs of Aging. Just what are these seven signs? Well, according to Procter and Gamble these are..

1) Lines and Wrinkles
2) Rough Skin Texture
3) Dullness of Skin's Appearance
4) Larger appearance of Pores
5) Blotchiness
6) Dry Skin
7) Age Spots


This product is non-comedogenic (won't clog pores), oil free, color and fragrance free. It normally comes in a 1.7 fluid ounce dispenser (which works great I might add). I have, however, purchased larger sizes at my local wholesale club.

It contains the following ingredients:

water, glycerin, lsohexadecane, niacinamide,dimethicone, ispropyl isostearate, poluacrylamide, sorbitan stearate, cetyl alcohol, sucrose polycottonseedate, C13-14 isoparaffin, panthenol, toocopheryl acetate, stearyl alcohol, titanium dioxide, dimeticonol, benzyl alcohol, ethylparaben, laureth-7, sucrose cocoate, propylparaben, disodium EDTA, PEG-100 steearate, stearic acid, sodium hydroxide, methylparaben, ammonium polyacrylate, vitamin B3, Pro-Vitamin B5, and vitamin E.

These are apparently "inactive" ingredients, as the "Active Ingredients" listed on the dispenser are as follows: 4.0% Octisalate, 2.0% Avobenzone, 1% Ensulizole and 1% Octocrylene.

This product is just one of many in the "Total-Effects" line of skin care products.

WHAT WILL IT DO FOR YOUR SKIN?

It will do about half of what is promised. Please do not let this statement discourage you and read on.

I have been using this product religiously for over two years now. The reason I continue to use this product has nothing to do with what the manufacturer promises. I use this product because I find it is the best "moisturizer" on the market. It absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling extremely soft and smooth as well as looking radiant. Unlike most moisturizers I have tried, I can apply my foundation immediately after applying this product. I have also noticed a slight improvement in the evenness of my skin's tone. I do not believe there has been any diminishing of wrinkles or fine lines (fortunately I am not plagued with too many of these YET). In addition, I have not seen any noticeable improvement in pore size. I do not have any age spots so I cannot comment on whether or not this product has any effect on them.


Although I believe this product is quite expensive for a "drug store" brand, I do feel it is worth it. I recall running out of this product and not using it for a week. That is when I really noticed the difference.

If you are looking specifically for an anti-aging treatment then this is not the product for you. However, if you are looking for an excellent daily moisturizer be sure to give this one a try.

You can get free samples of this and other products in the Total Effects line, online at the Oil of Olay website (www.olay.com)
