Directions to Use:
Use twice a day on a cleansed face and neck. Apply a small amount all over face and massage gently in circular motion.

Packaging:
Olay Natural White All In One Fairness Day Cream comes in a sleek plastic white tube. Very practical,nothing fancy!

My Take:
Just when I was through with my Avon Fairness Cream, and the rep told me there was still time for another tube to arrive. I gave Olay Natural White All In One Fairness Day Cream a try. The cream is soft beige in colour and has a mild floral fragrance. It is very moisturising yet light on skin. But I don't see it as a fairness cream (read Brightening).. The beige colour gave me an wrong impression of slight coverage which it obviously does not give.

Note: The hand appears fairer due to lighting issues
Though it claims to give UV protection but it has no mention of the SPF. Even being dry skinned I cannot imagine myself wearing this cream in summers. Its way to hydrating in hot months. If you are oily skinned or matte face lover...wait till its winter. Its good as a moisturiser but does not fair well as a day cream (no brightening effect).

My Likes:
1. Convenient packaging.
2. Mild floral fragrance.
3. Moisturising/hydrating.
4. Light on skin.
5. Pocket-friendly.
6. Gets absorbed easily.
7. Did not break me out.

My Dislikes:
1. Has no brightening effect.
2. Doesn't mention the SPF.
3. Doesn't reduce dark spots as it claims.
4. Will not make you fair.
5. Might come out greasy on oily skin.
6. Loaded with chemicals.
7. Doesn't mattify.

Last Word:
Olay Natural White All In One Fairness Day Cream fares well as a moisturiser but as a day cream I don't like it.I prefer my day creams to have a little brightening effect if not slight coverage. Waiting for winters to finish it up!

Repurchase:
No!!!!

Over All Rating: 3.5/5
