Do You Seek Out Do-It-All Products?

Poll posted by BR Natalie

Today we're looking at skin care do-it-all products.  When it comes to skin care you can either purchase products to target very specific concerns, like say, an uneven skin tone or fine lines.  Or you can look for a product that tackles various causes of an issue, or offers a solution to more than one skincare problem.

Products that tackle more than one concern are generally more cost effective and environmentally friendly.  They also mean we don't have to cart our whole beauty kit around with us, or clutter our vanities with dozens of jars and pots and tubes.  

And what about TIME?!  A do-it-all product saves us time.  I mean seriously, how long does it take you to cycle through your skincare routine?  Applying something to address this, something to fix that, leaving each product for a few minutes before applying the next and so on.  WHO has the time?!

We're putting the Olay Total Effects 7 in One Day Cream to the test.  It is what it sounds like - a daily facial cream that tackles 7 effects of ageing:

  1. Fine lines and wrinkles: reduces the appearance of fine line and wrinkles.
  2. Uneven tone: balances and evens out skin tone.
  3. Age spots: reduces appearance of age spots.
  4. Uneven texture: smoothes and evens out skin texture.
  5. Dryness: provides nourishing moisturisation.
  6. Dullness: gives skin a healthy radiance.
  7. Pores: minimises the appearance of pores.

This lovely product nourishes, softens and smooths your skin and improves tired-looking skin leaving you looking healthy, fresh and radiant.  All while reducing the look of fine lines and spots.  It's also oil-free, fast-absorbing, dermatologically tested and  non-comedogenic.  Oh and it also has SPF15 to help protect against sun exposure, the number one cause of premature visible ageing!

Fancy being one of the forty reviewers trialing it for us?  Tell us your skin care woes, and how you usually tackle them.  Do you look for a product that does it all?  Or do you buy individual products for very targeted concerns?

I pobably tick 6 out of the 7 boxes the Olay total effects 7 in one claims to tackle, the only one i miss is age spots....but they are coming! I have been searching for the right cream for my ageing skin, dull, dry and very uneven skin tone. At the moment i use several things + sun screen and it makes my skin feel heavy and i get all shiney and greasy looking (which i hate) I would love to try Olays “fix it all” with one product for all the above ageing skin problems.

Busy Mum ,Need great skin solutions -multi task so need my product to multi task too

My skin and I unfortunately fit into all categories number 1-7 -love OLAY, but not tried this so would love to be on a trial -need help & this could be it

Yes I want a product that targets everything at once! Who has the time or the money for a heap of different skin care products! I’m at an age where I need a bit of help with all 7 signs of aging!

totally agree -This sounds worth trying

This sounds great something i could even wear to work

I have combination skin and I can never seem to get the balance of products to use right! The idea of a single product to cover all seems almost to good to be true, would love the chance to find out if this would work for me.

Yes, The less products i have to use the less time it takes up of my morning routine. I like a product that has many uses and benefits.

MY skin is dull dry and flaky splotches on my face I try regardless of my skin condition to use creams for my face and no to avail always end up with dry scaly skin :(

I have always had problems with my skin since I was young, I grew up with really bad eczema that I have thankfully grown out of, although I still get bouts of it now and then. As a young adult when I started using makeup I starting getting adult acne, that scarred my skin. Now as an older person I have been struck with hyper pigmentation all over my face in a strange pattern on my forehead and cheeks. This has got to be the most embarrassing experience I have had to date. If this product works on this problem I would love to be considered for the trial. Thanks x

i have very dry skin with a very oily nose!!! i have tried a lot of things to help but our harsh weather where we live is relentless and i often cant find anything that can combat it

I am ime constraint so having a all in one package sounds like a great solution. This could work for me so please let me try it

I’d love to give this a try! I have pcos so struggle with my skin condition on a daily basis. Would love to see what this can do for me.

I need this for my ever deepening wrinkles and dry winter skin!

Iv tried and tried to find something that does it all but always find the wrong type of product for my skin

I am 36 years old and have always had really good skin. However, in the past few months I have noticed a change. I have small wrinkles/bags under my eyes and my complexion is a bit patchy and definitely dryer than normal. I haven't changed my skin routine, drink heaps of water and take vitamins. I have been thinking about changing moisturizer and know that my mum used Olay for years and she had great skin. Would love the opportunity to try before I buy x
