Win $50 from Olay & BlogHer!!!

As most of you know I turned the dreaded 30 last year, and in a few months I’ll take one more step towards “middle age”.  Ugh….did I just say that? 

Like most women I have concerns about my skin.  When I look in the mirror I see tiny lines starting to appear. Sun spots have started to make their appearance known.  I’m more self-conscious about my skin now than I ever have been.  I always try and take steps to protect my skin from the sun and environment. 

I want to tell you all about a great product I started using.  It’s called Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting Moisturizer.  I have very sensitive skin and freckle from the sun easily.  The first thing I noticed was that the moisturizer minimized the appearance of my freckles and sun spots. 

Unlike most moisturizers I’ve used, my skin felt refreshed and maintained moisture for an extended amount of time throughout the day.  I’ve used products in the past and my skin just absorbs it, sucks it up, and gets dry all over again!  Not with Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting Moisturizer.  I felt a refreshing glow throughout the day. 

Whenever I am looking for facial moisturizer I look for two key things: prevents signs of aging & protection from the sun.  Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting Moisturizer provides both of these, plus it’s tinted.  There are days I don’t feel like putting on a full face of makeup, but I still want to look decent if I need to get out of the house.  With one pump I get the perfect amount of glowing moisturizer. It goes on light and non-greasy, which is also a plus in my book!  I feel at ease knowing I’ve done something good for my skin and I look great too!  I hope you’ll give it a try and remember it’s never too early to start protecting your skin.

I give up a little TV time to take a shower and do my daily routines at night. I also get up a little bit earlier to start my morning & care for my skin!

Beth said...

I don't go a single day without wearing at least 20 SPF moisturizer, and I haven't for years.

ThisIsKia said...

I keep a tube of rich hand cream in every room of the house and in my purse since signs of aging often appear there first!

I keep my facial soap in the shower so I can wash my face & remove any makeup while showering. This saves time.

I put lotion on right after I get out of the shower and I put on a moisturizer with sunscreen everyday...and I don't wear makeup which saves a lot of time.

Amy said...

My morning beauty routine is quite a rush. I try to save time on my skin care routine by choosing products that have dual/multiple functions. Such as SPF-ed moisturizer or moisturized body wash, etc. The Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer sounds amazing and I need to give it a try! Thanks for the detailed review!

To have more time for skincare, after washing my face, I apply other products while at the computer at home. Peel wipes, serums, masks, I've done them all while reading email, etc.

I thought freckles on my cheeks were cute as a kid, but now that I'm older, realize that the freckles are gone and I have age spots. I like using multi-benfit products to speed my regime for skin care. If my moisturizer has SPF, I skip the sunscreen unless spending hours in the sun on an outing for sports or picnics.

One thing I do to save time is apply a mask 2 or 3 times a week first thing in the morning. Then it has time to work and dry while I make coffee, get clothes ready, etc. By the time I take my shower, I just wash it off in the shower and my skin feels so soft!
