Olay Total Effects- A Review

I was never high on using regular creams, forget anti-aging ones. So, when I got an opportunity to try one, what better than Olay Total Effects, I was game for it. I received a sample of Olay Total Effects- 7 in 1 Anti-Aging Cream+Serum Duo. I have earlier tried the Olay Total Effects moisturiser, but it made my skin a little greasy. I have a normal skin tone but the greasiness made me drop the product. So, I was hoping this one would click.

The 20gm cute dispenser like bottle is easy to carry along while travelling and very convenient to use. It also has a SPF of 15 which is enough for a moisturiser.

What it claims:

Olay Total Effects claims to fight the 7 signs of aging namely— the look of fine lines and wrinkles, rough texture, the appearance of prominent pores and age spots, uneven skin tone, surface dullness, and dryness.

I used it for a few days and the immediate effect I could see was that my skin was visibly smoother. The cream+serum is quite moisturising,to the effect that my skin felt a little greasy. I cannot say much about the pores and age spots claim, as I don’t have them yet, thankfully! 🙂

Price:

Rs 369 for 20gm

Overall, I am quite okay with this product during winters as the moisturising effect will work wonders then. But i am not quite sure about using it in the scorching summers. All in all, a good one from Olay.

Reliance Digital- A delightful experience

Thanks to Indiblogger, I have finally come out of my rut. As every blogger would agree, starting a blog is easy but maintaining one is tough! I have learned the hard way. Nevertheless, this particular contest on Indiblogger forced me out of my house, all the way to the Reliance Digital store in Mulund. Reliance Digital is the consumer electronics arm of Reliance Retail Ltd. Although I had been there before, I wasn’t sure how and what I would write about my experience at electronic shopping. So i decided to check in at the store some time in the noon.

I was directed to a small group of bloggers who had come in earlier already and in a discussion with Mr Kapil from Reliance Digital. I joined the introductory session. Image

The Reliance Digital in Mulund is fairly huge with all sorts of electronic gadgets and appliances neatly stacked and segregated for an easy shopping experience. Mr Kapil took us through each section, with detailed explanation about the products. He was very patient throughout the session and answered every single query thrown by the fellow bloggers.

We were introduced to the various sections in the store which housed LED TVs, household appliances, laptops and mobile phones, head sets, home music theater systems from all major brands.

Reliance Digital also helps you assess the kind of TV one should select for their house, with labelled markings on the floor with proper viewing distances. All major brands were available here. Some of them even had attractive offers. Then we were taken to other sections which stationed laptops, DSLR cameras, personal grooming appliances, music systems, gaming zone etc.

The well showcased DSLR kiosk had all the required information for you to help with selecting the best one. The best part about shopping at Reliance Digital is the detailing done for all the products, along with offers and EMI schemes wherever applicable. Mr. Kapil proudly spoke about how Reliance has been aggressive in its approach and has managed to open up 500 stores in just 2 years. He also mentioned that customer service is one of their prime differentiators when compared to other competitors in the market.

And to prove his point, he took us to the customer care centre which takes care of all the customer queries and complaints.  ImageThe CRM kiosk attends to regular queries from the customer thus emphasizing on customer service, their motto being ‘Grahak Devo Bhava’. I was glad to hear this because customer service is one area where all the major retail outlets need to focus.

Next we were taken to the home theater engagement zone.It was a glass enclosure along with seating arrangements for one to test the system before buying. Ms Swati from Reliance Digital explained in detail about Reliance’s in house brand named Reconnect, powered by sound specialists Harman Kardon.

Ms Swati also showed us how Reliance has adopted the MPOS (Mobile Point Of Sale) system for easy billing, across all the stores. An iPhone, with a customized software developed by an IT major, allows one to swipe his card on the phone thus alleviating the trouble of long billing queues. This once again reiterates that they strongly believe in the saying ‘Customer Is King”.

All in all, it was a wonderful experience, as I got to know a lot about their process. Both the Reliance Digital representatives did a wonderful job of taking us through the entire process patiently. Looks like they have everything going for them and Reliance Digital was absolutely a delightful experience.
