Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Eye Transformation Cream Review

Totally Effective or a Waste of Time?

Recently I heard about a product by Olay that claims to get rid of dark eye circles.

Since I’m getting a ton of requests for products that can help with this problem, I figured I’d check Olay’s Total Effects 7 in 1 Eye Transformation Cream out for you.

By the end of this article, you’ll know what Olay claims that the product can do, what ingredients are in it and what real users think of it so that you can decide for yourself whether or not to try it.

What Do They Claim?

Olay claims that their total effects line uses a “VitaNiacin formula” to fight seven different signs of aging. They say that their products improve rough skin, reduce the look of wrinkles and fine lines, even out your skin tone, decrease the appearance of large pores, moisturize, and noticeably improve the appearance of age spots.

That’s just the general statement for the entire Total Effects line, and really all that they say about any of the products. The only thing that Olay really says specifically about the eye cream is that it provides 7 benefits in one must-have product that’s good for use all around the eye area. It supposedly gives you “visibly radiant, younger-looking eyes”.

OK then, now that we know what Olay claims that the Total Effects Eye-Transforming Cream can do, let’s take a look at what’s in the eye cream to see if it really has the teeth to back up the talk.

What’s In It?

Most of the ingredients in this eye cream are emollients, moisturizers, and stablilizers. There’s also mico, which a material used in roofing shingles and cosmetics to refract light and thus create the illusion of brightness or hide hollow spots and other flaws that cause your skin tone to look uneven.

Another ingredient that’s in the cream that will make your eyes look brighter is titanium dioxide. It’s a sunscreen as well as a tint. The green tea, aloe, and cucumber extracts may help with puffiness and wrinkles, and the niacin (vitamin B3) is known for retaining moisture. Finally, the vitamin C may help exfoliate and reduce mild age spots and vitamin E is a healing antioxidant and moisturizer.

Though all of these ingredients are good, there are also parabens, phosphates, and other questionable materials in Total Effects Eye Cream.

What Are Users Saying?

The reviews on this product are all over the scale but it seems that people who are just looking for a moisturizer or a cosmetic cure for dark eye circles are happy but people who expect the product to actually reduce dark circles or wrinkles instead of just covering them up aren’t satisfied.

Most users do say that they really like the texture of the cream and that there is enough of the product to last several months even if you use it twice per day. There’s a shimmer to it from the mico and the silica so it should make your eyes look brighter and detract from the appearance of flaws, and most users agree that it does.

Final Word

If you’re looking for a product that actually reduces the signs of aging even when you’re not wearing makeup, you’re probably not going to like this product. If, however, you’re just looking for a product to put on with your makeup that will cover your dark spots and flaws while making the skin around your eyes luminous and younger looking while you’re wearing it, then you’ll like it. You’ll also enjoy it if you’re looking for a moisturizer for around your eyes.

If you’re looking for a product that will actually decrease fine lines, eliminate dark eye circles, and firm your skin, then you’re not going to like the Total Effects 7 in 1 Eye Cream. Considering the ingredients, it’s going to soften and moisturize your skin and make it look shimmery when it’s on, but it’s probably not going to have any real impact on the signs of aging except when you’re wearing it.

Just a word of caution: If you wear contacts, this may not be a good product for you because the silica and mico in it may get under your contacts and irritate your eyes.
