Olay Total Effects Moisturizer SPF 15 at Costco

A long time ago, before she retired (I'm so old all my doctors are retiring), my previous dermatologist told me to wear sunscreen: SPF 15 in summer and 50 in winter.   I never found a 50 that I liked on my skin, but I've been good about the SPF 15 year-round.

What made it so easy is Olay Total Effects SPF 15 sold by Costco.  I wore this before finding it at Costco, and was thrilled to find it there.   Costco's price is good,; and, often, you can buy it with a coupon to reduce the price even further.  At one point, a few years ago, Costco stopped carrying this with the SPF, and I had to purchase it at the drugstore, where the price was almost double.

I've tried more expensive moisturizers and less expensive creams; this is the only cream that feels right on my skin and doesn't smell weird.  On the label, Olay Total Effects claims to be fragrance free; not sure about that, but the slight smell (which might be only in my imagination) disappears quickly.

Does it work? I do occasionally get compliments on my skin. Usually after spending $$$$ at my new dermatologist's. I don't think the sunscreen hurts.


  1. what a shocking review! I have never attempted tinted moisturisers, I as of late concluded my case of that stuff likewise and I esteemed it. I for the most part feel a not too bad cream is one of the best hypotheses the degree that greatness things oil free moisturizer

  2. If you've been negligent in sticking to your regimen, as outlined by the instructions included in you acne treatment kit, or those provided by your dermatologist, you need to reform your habits now. Non comedogenic spf moisturizer
