Olay Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream Review

Olay* Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream is a rich eye cream formulated with a unique blend of 7 vitamins and minerals, including cucumber extract, aloe vera and VitaNiacin, which helps to exfoliate, repair skin’s moisture barrier and maintain skin’s even tone.
Olay Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream contains light-diffusing powders that provide an instant glow to skin all around the eyes, and an enhanced radiance overall.


 I am 33 years old and I have been having more and more trouble with those silly laugh lines, and my under eye area seems to be very dry, so, I decided to try this product. The first time I bought my first jar of Olay Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream was almost 4 years ago and since then I still buy it every 6 months. Well, I have tried a few different eye creams expensive and non expensive eye creams but somehow I keep going back to the Olay. As far as drug store eye creams go, this is one of my favorites. It's not a miracle worker, but it does provide some visible improvement.  
Olay Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream fights 7 signs of aging and promises to :


  • Line minimization - visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Nourishing moisturisation - for a radiant healthy glow
  • Tone Enhancement: Balances color & visibly reduces appearance of age spots
  • Gentle Exfoliation: Smooths and evens skin texture
  • Pore Refinement: Minimizes the appearance of pores
  • With Anti Oxidants: Helps prevent free radical damage to the skin's surface layers
  • Subtle Firming: Hydrates for firmer skin appearance

Olay Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream comes in a glass jar with 15 ml of product and expires 6 months after opening. The cream has a lovely light silky texture, enriched with light reflecting pigments (not glitter- like I've been reading somewhere ) and it has a tinted soft peachy color.It   includes UVA-protecting ingredients and a handful selection of serums and some excellent moisturizers, good AHA exfoliant.
Application is by a minimal amount so it will last for ages, even if the jar might appear to you as very small.Easy to apply, non greasy. Lovely texture and feels good on the skin. Ideal for the sensitive area around the eye. Skin is left hydrated, looking firmer, healthier, more radiant, even and smooth.
It is slightly tinted so it feels like as if you are also wearing a light concealer. Every time I use Olay Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream I use less concealer or not at all. It works great under any type of foundation and make-up, in general. It visibly reduced the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and my skin appears soft and firm.

For the best visible results you should apply your eye cream before you apply any other moisturizer. Applying eye cream over you moisturizer will be like wearing your underwear on top of your jeans.

For me, Olay Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream, really works and so far I am quite happy with it, but in general I love Olay products. 
As with any other cream, eye cream or moisturizer in general, this product will not make you look as a 18 year old gorgeous model and it can take up to 2- 3 months to see visible change. I would recommend this product to a friend.Estimated price 10-15 EUR.

I wish Olay will change the packaging and (re)consider to use a plastic tube for Olay Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream, as the translucent jar packaging, compromises the effectiveness of the antioxidants even before opening it, and also the products can be overexposed to light and air.

I rate this product with 3 from 5 stars because Olay still tests on animals and because the glass jar can compromise the effectiveness of the product.
