Review: Olay Total Effects CC Cream (with $25 Walmart gift card giveaway!)

When we moved from our condo to our townhouse, we suddenly were living in a home where we actually had to turn on the heat.  And my skin was SO dry for the first month or so.  It's been improving as I adjust, but I'm still always happy to get new products designed to help me keep my skin looking its best.  The newest product that I received for review is Olay Total Effects' CC Cream. Here's a bit about this product, from information that was sent to me:
  • Introducing Beauty’s Next Big Trend! Olay CC Cream provides instant Coverage plus Correction to fight 7 signs of aging, including uneven tone, age spots, and wrinkles!
  • This all-in-one triple stream formula combines a daily anti-aging moisturizer, SPF 15 sunscreen and sheer tint for younger-looking skin.
  • Total Effects fights the 7 signs of aging:
    • Fine lines and wrinkles: reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
    • Uneven Tone: balances and helps even out tone
    • Age Spots: reduces appearance of discoloration
    • Gentle Exfoliation: Improves surface cell turnover
    • Dryness: provides nourishing moisturization
    • Moisture Barrier: strengthens skin’s natural defense against moisture loss
    • Luminosity: recaptures youthful luminosity
Overall, I really like this cream. I love that it has SPF 15 sunscreen built in, since I rarely remember to put sunscreen on before my makeup (bad Carrie!).  And since I'm in my mid-30s now, I definitely need the anti-aging aspect of the moisturizer as well. So this is a good combo product for me!  I thought the cream was a nice texture and went on smoothly.  It wasn't oily and didn't make my makeup look funny.  However, I received the light to medium color, and I probably should have asked for fair to light (it's also available in medium to deep), since it's a little too dark for my pale February skin. I definitely will be using the CC cream this summer though, when my skin is a little darker.  Glad to have this new tool in my beauty product toolbox!

I have good news- I'm giving away a $25 Walmart gift card so that one of you can pick up some CC Cream and try it for yourself! Open to US mailing addresses, enter at the Rafflecopter widget below.

I would love to try this for dryness. I have noticed in the last year my skin is so dry and nothing I have tried has fixed that. This would be great! Plus I love that it has a built in sunscreen, I should wear that all year long but often do not think of it.
