Note: As of fall 2015, our readers have informed us of a potential reformulation of this product. We appreciate your patience while we work on thoroughly updating this review!

Total Effects 7-in-1 Anti-Aging Moisturizer Daily Moisturizer Fragrance-Free is identical to Olay's Total Effects 7-in-1 Anti-Aging Moisturizer Daily Moisturizer, except this version omits the fragrance, which is to your skin's benefit. Otherwise, the same review applies: this lightweight moisturizer contains a good amount of niacinamide and silicones for a silky finish. The formula also contains a couple of good antioxidants. While overall not as state-of-the-art as similar products from Olay's Regenerist collection, this is still a good option for normal to oily skin.

Brand Overview

Olay At-A-Glance

Starting decades ago with the now-classic Oil of Olay, this brand now offers an extensive range of skin-care products sold at drugstores and mass-market stores. Today's Olay lineup for those concerned about staving off the effects of aging skin is impressive, comprising their Regenerist, Pro X, and Total Effects lines. All of these (and several other Olay products) contain the B vitamin niacinamide. As you might expect, the claims made for it are inflated, but niacinamide is a very helpful ingredient for all skin types, capable of exerting multiple benefits.

In fact, perhaps the biggest complaint about Olay is that there are a number of repetitive formulas within and between the sub-brands make this line confusing and tricky to shop! Still, there is a lot to like about this drugstore stalwart, with its main drawback being a few formulas containing fragrance or other ingredients that have the potential to cause irritation.
