When I bought the Olay Natural White All In One Day Cream, it was only due to the promise of "an all what you need in a cream" and also due to the limted edition discounted rates. I mean the price is so cheap, I figured even if the cream turned out to be a let down, I could still get away without feeling the guilt of a wrong purchase.

My cream came in a sleek tube that is perfect to be carried around all day for touch up's. The cap of the tube can be screwed open and the cream easily dispensed into your hands straight from the tube opening. The cream is white in color with a lovely, Olay-ish fragrance that lingers mildly on your skin after application. The most peculiar part is that during application, you feel these grainy bits between your skin and your fingers. I was alarmed that maybe there was something wrong with my batch but suddenly the grainy pieces were gone. The cream had absorbed into my skin, leaving no traces of greasiness, as promised! 

Application :
Use twice a day on a cleansed face and neck. 
Apply a small amount all over face and massage gently in circular motion. 
When you are applying the cream, the movements should always be in an upward direction so that it can maintain the youthful look for longer. 

Pro's of Olay Natural White All in One Day Cream :
  • Inexpensive for the quantity and a good quality cream
  • Smart packaging, especially the sleek little tube
  • The beautiful Olay cream smell.....
  • A light, easily absorbed cream, it is instantly soaked into your skin
  • Leaves skin looking dewy and bright post application
Con's of Olay Natural White All in One Day Cream :
  • Needs to be touched up as directed by Olay. I would have loved it even more, had the moisturing and sun protection effects of this cream, lasted upto 12 hours.
  • The mysterious grainy texture of the cream
To Splurge or Not To Splurge :
If you are just like me, someone who has to struggle and try millions of products till you find something that is exactly what your beauty dreams are made of, you must try this day cream. With a built in SPF and spot remover, this fairness moisturising day cream is perfect for combination skin types like me. I had no breakouts when using this cream and was left with an almost matte, brighter looking complexion.

Final Verdict :
Olay Natural White All in One Day Cream gets a 4.5/5 from me!


  1. This is my HG cream!I love the way it makes my skin luk..So hydrated and fresh and smells so gud :D

  2. Liking it from the review. But the idea of touchups is what concerns me.
    Lovely review Himanshi :)

  3. Hey Raaga,
    I'm a fan too!! I have previously never tried any of the Olay face products but now I'm raring to try more and more...

  4. Hey Nivedita,
    The cream is fabulous, truly a dream cream for fussy ones like us, who expect so much ;-)
    Yeah, the touch up part is slightly taxing to think about but don't let it discourage you from trying this one. Let me know if you try it and how you liked it!

  5. How about the whitening effects? Nice review btw. :-)

    1. Hey Cheonsadiana,
      The whitening effect is pretty good but you get lasting results only with regular use.
