One of the things I love about being a makeup artist is meeting fresh faces and having small talks with them that lead to beauty discoveries. I’ve encountered a lot of moms of my brides, even grandmoms, who still have great skin at their age. Half of the time when I ask them what they skincare regimen is, I get a simple answer – “I just use Oil of Olay!”

Having heard this skincare secret, I myself have a bottle of Olay in my stash. It’s one of the drugstore brands I highly recommend to friends and clients who want to start an anti-aging skincare regimen. It’s one of the few affordable brands I really believe is more powerful than the high-end ones in our market today.

Last week, I gladly received a package from Olay that consists of their newest products that promises to minimize pores. And for someone who has oily skin, I was too eager to try them out right away. 

Olay introduces 3 innovative products to its Total Effects line to improve texture, reduce the appearance of pores and even out skin tone.

And the most promising one was their new CC Cream that comes in two shades, Light and Medium.

I'm absolutely in love with how blendable this CC cream is! Most CC creams I've tried slathers on like a foundation rather than a skincare product. As seen in the photo above of my hand, Olay's CC cream blends onto my skin as if it's second skin. The smart color technology in the formula mimics the natural skin tone, making the product match the skin shade perfectly while still giving the right coverage.

And as seen in the photo above, my skin still looks natural and barely looked it had any base makeup on, thanks to the 3D Pore Coverage technology of Olay CC Cream that evened out my skin tone and smoothed out my skin's pore appearance. The niacinamide in the formula also kept my skin luminous and hydrated.

I've only used this for 2 days and I can already see minor skin improvements. I'm excited how my skin texture will improve as I continue using this as my daily moisturiser and skin protector (SPF 15+). Try Olay CC Cream yourself and see your #BestBeautiful.
