In the early ‘50s, a South African chemist gifted his wife with a lightweight moisturizer as an alternative to that era’s thick and greasy face creams—and after a period of trial-and-error and delicate fine-tuning, the Oil of Olay Beauty Fluid came into existence. From there, that little pot of cream has multiplied and expanded into a powerhouse skincare brand with die-hard devotees the world over.
Olay Total Effects claims it is designed to maintain a youthful complexion by fighting the seven signs of skin-aging: fine lines and wrinkles, rough skin texture, dark skin tone, skin surface dullness, visible pores, blotches and age spots, and dryness.
The demand for Olay Total Effects has even spawned its own range of products: cleansers, moisturizers, and beauty boosters that target different areas of a woman’s skincare regimen while retaining the “all-in-one” Total Effects formula.
A recent event called “Forever Olay” reunited the four original Olay Total Effects ambassadors: TV personality Daphne Oseña-Paez, former beauty queen Miriam Quiambao, theater actress Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo, and Itsie-Bitsie Boutique owner Ines Delgado-Prieto. In the gallery below, you’ll see what these ageless beauties had to say about their Olay experience—plus, discover 11 anti-ageing skincare products from the Olay Total Effects line.
