Total Effects 7-in-1 Anti-Aging Body Lotion is very similar to other Olay body lotions we’ve rated highly, including Quench Daily Lotion. As such, the same review applies: This is worth considering if you have normal to dry skin and don’t want a body lotion that feels thick or the least bit greasy. Your skin will be treated to classic emollients along with an impressive amount of niacinamide and a skin-repairing triglyceride. An assortment of amino acids (which function as water-binding agents) are also on hand to help improve dry skin, making this an all-around winner.

The only drawback is a slight amount of fragrance, but it's not intrusive and unlikely to put skin at risk of irritation. No question that as far as drugstore body lotions go, this is one of Olay’s better formulas, though it’s not more “anti-aging” than their others that don’t call out this benefit.

Brand Overview

Olay At-A-Glance

Starting decades ago with the now-classic Oil of Olay, this brand now offers an extensive range of skin-care products sold at drugstores and mass-market stores. Today's Olay lineup for those concerned about staving off the effects of aging skin is impressive, comprising their Regenerist, Pro X, and Total Effects lines. All of these (and several other Olay products) contain the B vitamin niacinamide. As you might expect, the claims made for it are inflated, but niacinamide is a very helpful ingredient for all skin types, capable of exerting multiple benefits.

In fact, perhaps the biggest complaint about Olay is that there are a number of repetitive formulas within and between the sub-brands make this line confusing and tricky to shop! Still, there is a lot to like about this drugstore stalwart, with its main drawback being a few formulas containing fragrance or other ingredients that have the potential to cause irritation.
