I was all set to write this yesterday..but well life got crazy and by the time I got home I was zapped! So instead of forgoing it this week I decided to write a special Wednesday edition :) I knew all you lovely gals wouldn’t mind!
I have another amazing face product to share with you ladies today. I wasn’t sure at first if I should review two face products in a row but when I was on my tremendously long run on sat (12 miles thank you), I realized that everyone of you lovely girls is unique and therefore one product does not fit all…so what the hay..by george i’m going to review two in a row!
As I had mentioned in my previous review, I am on a continual search for the perfect face product (although I am starting to believe that even if I found it I would continue to “have to” try the newest or latest thing..i’m just a curious creature)! I know a lot of you ladies mentioned having sensitive skin or even hard to manage skin. I for one (being in my mid-twenties) am at a weird stage with my face. You see, I am still dealing with acne and oiliness as well as trying to fight off those ever multiplying wrinkles. I have used products that are suppose to help with aging and I have also used products that help with acne but have been hard pressed to find both in one product!
Olay Total Effects Cream Cleanser and Blemish Control
This lovely product is part of the Olay Total Effects Advanced Anti-aging Skin Care line. It is one of the first products that I have found to address both acne and wrinkles as well as other important problem topics! Oh and get this girls..for those of you who weren’t too keen on the refills with The Wave, well here is another awesome product that is refill free!
I saw it at the store when I was browsing “just to see” what they had and HAD to buy it..plus it would make a good try’em out tuesday anyways..right?! It is fairly inexpensive, around $5-7 depending on where you buy it!
According to the back of the bottle..
This daily facial cleanser with micro-beads provides 7 anti-aging benefits in 1 cleansing step PLUS blemish control.
- Thorough Cleansing
- Gentle Exfoliation
- Tone Enhancement
- Nourishing Moisturization
- Pore Appearance Refinement
- Line Appearance Minimization
- Texture Refinement
So far I have no complaints! After I use it my face feels clean and tight and oh so nice :) I also Love the smell..it’s kind of a vanilla smell that is so nice and light..not too heavy! I also really love the micro beads, they make me feel like my face is really getting clean. Many times I don’t even need to use eye makeup remover! Overall I would say this product is a must try! My skin feels smooth and soft and happy!
Olay you earn an A in my book :) I will say though, I haven’t seen a dramatic difference in the lines on my face but I haven’t been using it that long and I am not the best at totally paying attention until it is really noticeable (and I probably don’t have too many yet). If you have some acne problems and are also looking for anti-aging benefits this is a product you want to have on you bathroom counter!
Have a great day ladies and thank you for giving me yet one more excuse to buy another face product!
Stay tuned for pics of the Charles getting thrown in the lake..a must not miss for sure!
