Make Up Review: Olay Total Effects Pore Minimizing CC Cream
I bumped into this product after I ran out of my everyday liquid foundation which was the Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation. This is my first time to tried CC cream and I was excited as it offers more benefits than BB creams. After using it for straight 2 weeks, here is my review. *drum rolling*
Where I bought it? Southstar Drugstore (see how I urgently needed this hahaha)
How much? 499php for 20g
Other locations: All leading supermarkets and drugstores

Coverage. It is light to medium coverage and lightweight on the skin. If you want full coverage to cover blemishes and discolorations, this is not the product for you. However, this CC cream gives luminosity on the face. It does its job when it says “Pore Minimizing” as you will notice the big difference upon applying it on the skin as your pores get smaller. I used my Maybelline Clear Smooth Shine Free Pressed Powder to set.
|Swatch; Light shade
|Staying Power. Given that I have oily and acne-prone skin, my skin gets oilier after one hour of using it. I blotted the oil and another hour had passed my face was began shiny again. Ang bilis humulas. A big no-no for oily skin. I tried to use primer but it still gives me the same result. I also noticed I develop small bumps on the side of my face huhuhuh
Overall, this product did not work for me and I do not recommend this to someone who has oily skin.
