These Wipes Could Change Your Life

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine.

How many different products do you use to remove makeup and clean your face at the end of the day? And more importantly, what do you use to aid these products? I usually use a liquid makeup remover, then a cleanser, a toner and serum before applying my moisturizer. Yes, quite a few steps.

Well the folks at Olay want to help you cut out some steps in your everyday routine. Like all things in life, your beauty routine should be simple and quick, cutting corners where you can, especially since you will probably be on the go a lot as we get closer to summer.

I'm sure you're familiar with all the beauty wipes that are on the market by now. And yeah, they work for the most part but these Olay Daily Facials Daily Clean 4-in-1 Water Activated Cleansing Cloths could become your new summer BFF. The 4-in-1 part is that one cloth has the cleansing power of a scrub, toner, mask and cleanser to gently exfoliate your skin.

Each generously thick cloth has special cleansing pockets to gently break up and lift away dirt and makeup without stripping the skin.

Of course I had to give these the ultimate test of removal and put one up against a liquid lipstick because we all know those are really hard to remove and it did, no problem! So you can replace your micellar water, pre-wet makeup remover wipes and liquid cleanser with these Olay Daily Facials Daily Clean 4-in-1 Water Activated Cleansing Cloths and know that your skin is getting really clean when you need it to be.

There are 33 in a reusable container and to use, just apply water, or I like to use a facial spray as I always have one on me when the temps go up. Visit Olay.com for more info.

Give Your Shower a #ShowerDUOver

What do you use in the shower with your body cleanser? One of those beauty puffs? Yeah, I’ve gone through many of them over the years and just recently some beauty bloggers and I were having a discussion on those puffs. As in, have you ever tried to clean one? Or do you even clean them? Well a couple of outlets have rang the bell super loud on why we shouldn’t even use these to clean ourselves because of the bacteria that can build up on them. I mentioned that I put mine in the washing machine with a load of laundry but even then I’m not so sure that gets them really clean.

In any case, there is now a solution and it’s called the DUO Body Cleanser and comes from 3 brands, Olay, Ivory and Old Spice. I did an unboxing on my Instagram when I got them last week, which you may have seen, and I really think these are game changers as we’ve never seen anything like it on shelves before.

How to Prime Your Skin for Makeup Application with Olay

Just like this post about priming the nails for a good at-home mani/pedi, priming the skin before applying makeup is just as important.

I always make sure to use a few key products prior to doing my makeup, especially if I’m going out on the town.

Olay_Regenerist_Wrinkle_RevolutionFirst, if it’s daytime, a sunscreen with a SPF of at least 30, second, a moisturizer like Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex. This one contains three different-sized light diffusers (like those ones found in popular foundations) that blur wrinkles and line. Love that! And it also has some major peptides and one exclusive to the brand called Amino Peptide +B3 Complex (vitamin B3, B5 and E), as well as Humectants for hydration.

After waiting as long as I can for the moisturizer to sink in, I apply a face primer and eye shadow primer (if I’m going to wear a shadow), and then, I’m ready for the makeup!

Olay-Regenerist-Micro-SculptingAfter applying makeup, I use either a setting spray or a setting powder all over my face neck and décolletage.

If you feel you need to smooth out the appearance of lines just around your eye area, Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Eye Cream & Lash Duo Serum will take care of it all – firm up the area, soften the lines around the area and it also helps thicken and nourish lashes.

Need a Sunscreen? How About Olay Complete?

Olay-Complete-All-Day-UV-MoisturizerWhat makes a great sunscreen for me? Yes, the high SPF protection and protection from both UVA and UVB. But the most important trait? That it sinks into the skin quickly with no leftover white residue. Haven’t you had this happen where it lingers? After you apply sunscreen you have to sit around and wait for it to absorb before applying makeup, and even then, it usually makes your face greasy? Maybe this is why some people don’t even apply sunscreen in the morning? Things that make you go hmmmm.

Anyway, this one does not leave a totally matte finish but I think it dries down pretty quickly and half the time I don’t even see that I have it on. Big plus! So am I shallow in just wanting a sunscreen like this? So be it … but I’m shallow with no residue on my face!

So all this brings me to a super recommendation for you - one that not only sinks in super quick but it’s quite purse-friendly. OLAY Complete All Day UV Moisturizer with Vitamins E & B3 UV Skin Shield SPF 15 Lotion (wow, that’s a mouthful!) is also non-comedogenic and contains vitamins E and C. They are somehow able to include a sheer zinc oxide (the sunscreen part) in this and it protects from both UVA and UVB. Big recommendation. $8.99/4oz @ walgreens.com.

Olay's New Line Delivers Results

Olay-Pro-X-Starter-Kit-2 

Lots of buzz around OLAY’s new ProX skin care line. This collection of six skin care products was 3-years in the making and is made with a sprint in mind instead of a jog. What I mean by that is that they guarantee you will see results within 28-days. The goal with this line is to bring the skin back to how it performed when it was younger. I’ve been rocking the Age Repair Lotion with SPF 30 the past couple of weeks and so far so good. And with the average price of $47 per product, they are a great value. Want even more bang for you buck? Pick up thePro-X Anti-Aging Starter Protocol for $68 @ walgreens.com. It contains the Age Repair Lotion (1oz), Wrinkle Smoothing Cream (1oz) and Eye Resoration Complex (.3oz). These are a great value in these tough financial times.
