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”

Step into the Light: Anaiti Luminous Cream Review

Before I begin – let’s take a moment for the people of Paris – without our own agendas, without parlaying into our individual agendas… simply as humans.

It’s arguable that right now, the world is in a dark spot. With so many of us honoring the City of Light, it seems fitting to discuss a product that’s about building light into our skin and correcting the dark spots.

With that in mind, let’s lighten up with Anaiti’s Luminous Cream – in my latest video I talk about why it works to give you that look of an inner “glow”, plus how it lightened up my dark underarms! You get to see ’em! (If that doesn’t gross you out… I promise they’re not nasty.) Continue reading “Step into the Light: Anaiti Luminous Cream Review”

Shiseido Ibuki Multi Solution Gel Review + Giveaway

Combination skin like mine can be tough to care for; you want to treat your problem areas, but don’t want to risk stressing it out more and adding fuel to the fire.

As soon as I read the description for the new Ibuki Multi Solution Gel from Shiseido, I thought it just might be the solution for sensitive or combination skin that’s prone to both breakouts and dry patches. And Shiseido, founded in Japan in 1872, has 140 years-plus logged in beauty innovation, so they know a thing or two. Continue reading “Shiseido Ibuki Multi Solution Gel Review + Giveaway”
