Olay Touch of Foundation needs just a touch more color


I am seriously in love with everything Olay comes out with. After years of acne and dull skin, my skin now looks unbelievably great (yes, despite my flirtation with a not-so-effective skincare line). I owe all this to Olay Total Effects which I started using in 2007 and to Olay Regenerist which I am currently using. So when Proctor & Gamble came out with Olay Total Effects Touch of Foundation, I was totally ecstatic.

Now, however, I feel ambivalent. On one hand, it's a fantastic moisturizer--it's still the same 7-in-1 anti-aging cream that made it such a favorite; on the other, it's a mediocre foundation.

I guess it's okay--it's not like they promised coverage since the foundation is just a "touch." If you need more coverage because your skin isn't perfect, then skip this product and grab your trusty concealer and liquid foundation. But, assuming you're a longtime user of Olay and therefore already have flawless skin, then Olay Touch of Foundation has just the right tinge of color to bring a subtle glow to your skin.

Olay Total Effects Touch of Foundation is available at all leading department stores and drugstores for P749.

Oh, and I'm giving away a Shu Uemura makeup brush kit, a Jurlique Facial Care set and a Shu Uemura lipstick case! Join now!

UPDATE: Okay, okay... I'm changing my mind on this product. Every time I use it, I get compliments. My mother-in-law thought I was glowing. I gave one to my sister-in-law and she absolutely loves it. So I may not see the effects but since other people do, then it's effective!

I swear by Olay (and Dove soap and Ponds cream). I'm not sure if others see it on me the way they see it on you BUT I "feel" it at work. Hahaha.

Chin! We use the same stuff! Well, I don't use Pond's Age Miracle anymore since I began Olay Regenerist but hey, these things really work!

i've been an olay user since high school! i have terribly dry skin but olay always makes it soft and supple. i shuffle between the total effects and its whitening fluid but i have the original moisturizer as well when my skin feels tired and rough.

my babies have been using olay soap since birth and well, i hope they grow up with fab skin like us! hahaha.

thanks for the review! I might try it. :)

Ponds have very good lines of products too (I agree with Chin). Sometimes, mas better pa and effective ang local products compared to those imported luxurious beauty products no?

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this. Seriously i was thinking whether i should get this product or not. I am going to try it out someday!

I totally swear by Olay! I've been using moisturizer since I started working coz the aircon makes my skin dry. And by far, Olay is the best! My husband also started using since he heard me raving about it, and he can't live without it now! haha

Hi,
I want to get this one for my girlfriend, because she read about it in a megazine. Where can I find it ? I have tried all departmental stores.
