Olay Whips Creme Moisturizer Review

Whip Your Skin Into Shape in 2018! @Olay #ad @Albertsons #winterskinproblems #feelthewhip

Does your skin get dry in the winter? Of course it does. It’s winter. Try living out here in the Arizona desert. After Christmas we Phoenicians look less like goddesses and more like a vintage handbag. Seriously– after a full winter of this dryness, my face feels rougher than a Piers Morgan interview with Tonya Harding. (zzzzing!)

Even if you don’t live in drier climates, winter has some surprising negative effects on skin. Our skin starts to feel the
effects of cold weather when temperatures
drop below 53.6 degrees Fahrenheit. And perhaps most surprisingly, central heating can reduce air humidity levels to the same moisture content as the Sahara Desert (that’s a relative humidity of just 20-25%). So the problem isn’t necessarily the cold weather, but what we have to do to deal with it.  Continue reading “Whip Your Skin Into Shape in 2018! @Olay #ad @Albertsons #winterskinproblems #feelthewhip”

Olay Skincare Challenge

#Olay28Day Challenge Results – OMG!

#Olay28Day #sponsored

What if you could completely change your skin in less than a month? What if you did less, not more, to make it happen? As a product junkie, I’d typically be apt to cast a skeptical eye at this proposition, but the Olay 28 Day Challenge tempted me. After all, I’m not one to resist a challenge.

Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is not only an anti-aging cream but is a moisturizing and plumping powerhouse; hydration is one of the key benefits for younger women seeking preventative anti-aging measures.

How I’m never getting older – or poorer. #Olay #ad #Ageless

#Olay #ad #Ageless  Youthfulness will always be in style, but I feel like lately it’s had even more of a resurgence. Just look at our recent music: the Chainsmokers bravely proclaim “we ain’t never getting older”, Troye Sivan’s aptly named “Youth” notes “we’ve no time for getting old”… are we in denial, or is this goal of permanent youth actually *gasp* achievable?

“Sure,” many of you smirk, “with the right surgeon.” Reality TV alone is proof that a youthful appearance can be bought, but the price tag is no joke. Or is it? Can we reverse the hands of time without taking out a home equity line of credit to foot the bill on poisonous injectables, irreversible surgical procedures or celeb-endorsed $300 ointments made of only the finest free-range bald eagle spit?

The answer is yes. Ladies, welcome to the future. Gone are the days when we had to step beyond the drugstore doors and shell out makeup-counter dollars to get a decent quality skincare product. It’s 2017,  and youth is now within your budget.

But don’t those pricey products work better? That’s what the snobby counter girl WANTS you to think, but the only real added benefits go on her commission check. Consider this: Good Housekeeping Institute did a study on 10 top prestige beauty creams (including one with a $440 price tag), and drugstore powerhouse Olay’s Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream outperformed them ALL. Say what? Continue reading “How I’m never getting older – or poorer. #Olay #ad #Ageless”

Why French Women Have Great Skin

French women have many enviable qualities. First, there’s that effortless chic-and-sexy they pull off – HOW? Then there’s the well-known fact that they seem to stay slim despite a diet consisting of 90% buttered croissants and Beaujolais Nouveau. What gives?

Even more disgustingly, they stay lovely and young-looking for ages. Maybe the French philosophy behind their skincare is to credit for this; French women have famously indulged their skin in luxurious products and treated it like handsewn lace for centuries.

Aixallia is one such example of why: it’s a new French organic skincare and cleansing brand made with proprietary ultra-pure water to eliminate all impurities. Only the French would think to worry about what water went into it! Continue reading “Why French Women Have Great Skin”

Proactiv Review First Impressions

#Proactiv #ad #IC This post was sponsored by Proactiv as part of a Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

You know what’s exceptionally uncool? Being almost 30, and having zits. I think it’s a hormonal thing – once a month, my face goes haywire and my forehead, cheeks and chin become emblazoned with blemishes. SUPER hot. Seriously, wasn’t this supposed to have stopped back when I was a teenager? Continue reading “Proactiv Review First Impressions”
