Its been long I hadn’t posted any product review. Its not that my love for skincare products has saturated or I have finally found my HG skincare regimen to have stopped experimenting with myriad products. Its just that none of the products I used in the last month, impressed me enough to deserve a review.
After all, its much easy to write about a product you like than about a product you don’t. I had heard a lot about the effectiveness of Olay products and have also used a couple of their products in the past with good results. This time, when my husband brought Olay Natural White All in One Fairness Kit from his last trip to Dubai, I got really excited.
My Experience with Olay Natural White All in One Fairness Cream:
Its been almost 20 days now that I am using this cream and so fair enough time for the review. The cream comes in a small decent tub and has been there in the market from quite a long time now. Despite being a true worshiper of creams and potions, when it comes to night creams, I get really paranoid. The fact that night creams generally tend to be greasy and gooey, makes me feel conscious of these beauties.
But quite to my astonishment and excitement, this fairness night cream from Olay just seeps into the skin quickly without leaving any residue or greasy texture behind. Also, unlike other fairness creams, it does not leave a white cast either. Its feathery texture and mild floral scent is perfect for bed time. The cream has a slight pink tinge to it making the whole experience all the more feminine and pleasing.
Every time I apply this cream after washing my face in the night, it gives me the feeling of wearing a soft satin pink night suit after bath! Excuse me for the metaphor but this is how I feel about this night cream. Yes, the cream also does its job well of nourishing the skin, which should be primary for any good and effective night cream.
Its been 20 days and I have noticed a slight difference in my skin texture. Of course, not in the whitening department but it has definitely imparted a kind of radiance to my skin. The cream claims to nourish the skin with its triple nutrient formula – Vitamins B3, pro-B5 & E. With Niacinamide, a proven anti aging and skin whitening ingredient, as its active ingredient feel assured of the product’s effectiveness as a nourishing night cream.

My Final Take:
Overall, I liked this cream. I have combination skin, which gets really oily in summers and dry in winters. As the cream has a way of adapting to the skin, I found this cream to be perfect for my skin type. It neither makes my skin look gooey nor leave it craving for moisture. The cream does its job well of nourishing the skin but if you are looking for dramatic results or noticeable whitening, the cream is not for you.
Will I Buy Again: Yes, but not now, may be later as I get bored with products very soon.
PS.: For better results, use it with Olay Natural White All in One Fairness Face Wash and Olay Natural White All in One Fairness Day Cream.
