Olay Review & Win $50!!!

Do you keep a pair of tweezers in your purse? Are you constantly checking your face for the occasional hairy straggler? When someone says “peach fuzz” do you think of your chin, cheeks, and upper lip instead of a fruit? Ahem…guilty.

I recently got to try the New Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo.

I have dreaded unwanted facial hair I know all you gals envy! Ha! Even my husband notices sometimes, and it doesn’t make me feel attractive at all. I’ve tried several hair removal products in the past. I’ve used creams and waxes galore.

The creams have always had an awful smell and left my skin feeling raw. Waxing hurts like crazy, and I’ve even been burned from waxing before! Who wants to go through all that? Not me.

I want to feel smooth and pretty without the hassle.

That’s why New Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo was the perfect solution. First of all ladies, it smells GREAT! I didn’t have to sit there and hold my breath while the cream was working on my face.

My skin felt soft, smooth, and moisturized afterwards, not raw and dry. I was left with silky smooth skin in 6-8 minutes with no hassle at all! It takes just two easy steps:

1. Condition your skin with the skin guarding balm. This keeps your skin from drying out and getting red.

2. Rub on the Hair Removal Cream and leave on for 6-8 minutes. Gently rub off with a wet wash cloth. You’ll have silky, smooth, hair free skin in no time.

I feel better about how I look, my makeup goes on smoother, and I don’t feel like every time the sun hits my face my “beard” will show. I love this product, and it was so easy to fit into my busy weekly routine.

If you have unwanted facial hair on your chin, cheeks, or upper lip then you will want to try New Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo! I promise you’ll love it! It worked great for me and I know it will work great for you too!

What inspires me is the softness of a child and how trusting they are. My sister has a young daughter (6 months old) who has a heart health issue. This little girl is the sweetest little thing. She is just a darling. I want to be able to say that my skin is just as soft.

Tiffany Norris said...

Right now, my baby girl is inspiring me to not worry about how big my belly or how many stretch marks there are but just to enjoy being in my skin. So that means plenty of pampering with good smelling lotions!

My kids inspire me to want to be the best mom I can be. As far as beauty routine, I don't have much of one. My mom and grandmother have really good skin and I try to take care of what I've been given.

If I don't get dolled up much does that mean I have no inner beauty?? HA Totally kidding, but I could use a little help when it comes to makeup and what not. I wonder if anyone thinks I have a beard?? Not sure if I notice too much peach fuzz..I am going to inspect myself in the mirror now. Eekk!!

Deb said...

My regimen is designed to uncover "new" skin. I feel old when my pores are clogged and dead skin cells flake off. So I use a chemical peel and microdermabrasion regularly. It gives me more confidence when my skin is baby-bottom smooth!

I am inspired by my friends and family. My beauty routine is a regular application of Aveeno pampering products, good sleep, and lots of water.

Carrien said...

I always get a mustache again after mt babies turn a year or so and my cycle returns. It's actually a very reliable first sign. I usually bleach it. I'd love to try this.

I'm not sure what the inner beauty prompt means exactly. Some days I'm not sure I have any. I'm more patient with my kids when I remember to pray though. I'd rather do that in the morning than make up. I don't wear any most days. Just a quick scrub in the shower and some moisturizer is all I do.

I try to let my inner beauty shine by not covering myself with too much makeup, and also simplifying my accessories. When I look more natural, I feel more like my true self.

Heather! said...

Wow...the first paragraph of this post describes me exactly! To answer your question, though, I try to let my own individuality inspire my beauty routine. I spent years trying to fit into the mold of other girls, 'perfect' girls, etc., but have finally gotten to the stage where I try to look at ME--as I am--and go from there. So I don't worry anymore about the little baby hairs that prevent me from wearing my hair in any kind of sleek style, I don't worry so much about the texture of my skin or how pale it is, and I can *almost* accept my curves! Not saying it's easy or that I feel that way every day, but I've come a long way! Now I just try to take care of what I have, what my body is, and that has made me a lot happier.

Thanks!

My grandmother always inspired me with her beauty routine which was quite simple. She would cleanse her face with Dove and then use Oil of Olay. Her skin was so soft. That inspired me to do less. I actually have to do less because I have rosacea. So I am not able to use a lot of product on my face. Pretty much the only thing I use is what my doctor prescribes for me.

What inspires my inner beauty is my hubby & little girl. They let me know that I don't have to wear makeup to be pretty. They love me for who I am even if I wake up with drool on my face & eyebrows growing out of my eyeballs lol jk! They do tease me about my mustache though, which gets embarassing sometimes! It's hard to always apply makeup when your hard at work being a wife/mother! That's why I'm glad I have great supporters behind me, afterall their the only opinions that count! :) This is my inner beauty inspired by my world!

I express my inner beauty with my hair! My hair style can usually tell you what kind of day I'm having or how I'm feeling inside. A big fun up-do is a fierce day. A low simple bun is a demure day. And my hair down and wild is a crazy-out-of-my-way day!

I keep my beauty routine fairly simply and it's important to me to not cover up what I don't like, but enhance what I do like! So this is how my routine enhances my inner beauty...and I suppose that doing things like yoga, hiking, and general working out could be part of the routine that makes me feel good about myself and makes me all glowy.
