#Ageless Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel

*I received this product for review

After I hit age 40 (several years ago), I noticed that my undereye area required extra attention.  I used to be able to get away with a moisturizer-the same one that I used on my face.  Now, I notice that if I don’t apply a separate eye product, that my undereye appears incredibly dry and sometimes gets dark.

My main ‘issue’ with eye products is that they are either too rich for daytime use ( I do use a rich eye cream at night) , or not hydrating enough.  Since my skin is combination (with an INCREDIBLY oily T-zone), I don’t want a very rich eye product that is going to interfere with my face and make me look greasy.

Spring into a new beauty routine! #beautyunited

 

*I received these products for review*

Spring in your step, spring forward, spring cleaning-I’m cool with spring.  This year, I got started a bit early with my spring clean and am 80% ‘done’ (just 2 more closets to tidy up and those are going to be doozies!).  Spring is also a great time to make some changes to your beauty routine.  Check out the products below-these are some great additions to my spring regime!

Herbal Essences Repair argan oil of morocco shampoo & conditioner

Raise your hand if you wish they would bring back the Herbal Essence commercials of the 90’s-I KNOW you all know what I mean (but in case you don’t, check out one of the original commercials here).  I never completely fell ‘out’ of love with this line-the ‘naked’ shampoo is a great clarifying shampoo that I slip in 2 times a month.  I tend to use salon professional shampoos & conditioners, but I did try this one and it is quite nice.  It is incredibly hydrating, and leaves my strands feeling nourished.  I find myself wanting to touch my hair more after using these.  The scent is beautiful-it’s what I would term an ‘exotic floral’

Fun fact:  The shampoo & conditioner are made in a plant that matches electricity with renewable wind credits.  

Olay ultra moisture shea butter body wash

I love body washes that have that ‘extra’ hydration component.  The ‘lock in moisture’ technology infuses skin with moisture without leaving it feeling greasy.  Spring is the perfect time to incorporate a product like this into your routine-your skin is still trying to recover from the dry, bitter winter temperatures.  I still apply a lotion post shower but find that adding a hydrating body wash helps keep me flake free all day.

Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Concentrate & Olay Regenerist Micro sculpting cream

Okay so up front I’ll tell you, I’ve used the Micro Sculpting cream before and rather like it.  The concentrate is ‘new’ to me.  This is a great time of year to give your face a spring cleaning too by helping your skin cells turn over.

From the Olay website:

The Miracle Boost concentrate:

Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Concentrate is an advanced anti-aging, ultra-lightweight formula booster which is designed for use with a Regenerist moisturizer. Infused with advanced Amino-Peptide Complex II, Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Concentrate skin hydrating booster enhances skin absorption.

The Micro sculpting cream:

Infused with Hyaluronic Acid, Amino-Peptides and Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), this Moisture-Binding Formula Instantly Plumps & Lifts Surface Cells.

Crest 3D White Supreme flexfit whitestrips

I’m all about the pearly whites year round but when I want to wear my spring lipsticks, having my teeth be their best shade of white is important.  Dental bleaching kits from the dentist are great-but they cost big $$$$.  These Crest whitestrips do the trick and are easy to apply.

Unleash a brilliantly dimensional smile with your beauty “must have,” Crest 3D White Supreme FlexFit Whitestrips. These whitening strips are formulated with the same enamel-safe ingredient dentists use and whiten as well as a professional treatment.

  • Deliver whitening results as effective as a  professional teeth whitening treatment
  • Give you results that last 18 months and beyond- (I haven’t tested this yet but will let you know)
  • Exclusive FlexFit technology design stretches and molds to custom fit your unique smile for a comfortable, no-hassle teeth whitening experience at home
  • Use the same enamel-safe whitening agent that dentists use
  • Advanced Seal™ Technology’s no slip grip stays put. No slipping, no sliding!
  • Whitestrips are so easy to use: you can whiten while you walk, talk, work, even drink water
  • The strips mold to the shape of your teeth and come off cleanly

And there you have it.  I’d love to hear about your ‘spring cleaning’ routine (in regards to beauty).

The ULTIMATE WINTER SURVIVAL KIT!

I’ll be the first to jump up and say I love the ‘holiday season’ and by that I mean, I love the holiday season from the comfort of my own home.  Being out in the elements because I have to is one thing-but if I don’t have to, you’ll find me nestled under a throw blanket in front of the Christmas tree.  Since I’m still on my daily grind, with a 9-5 obligation, Olay, Secret, Pantene, and Herbal Essences have a few Winter Essentials to keep me looking my absolute best when I am toe to toe with Jack Frost.  Let me know how you brave the cold and thanks for reading!

Over 40 foundation- Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Primer & Foundation

*I received these products for review*

I actually had written some great stuff here earlier about how I used to be in a serious relationship with tanning beds (we broke up in 2008), and that every since then I’ve been taking care of my skin (pat on the back).  Unfortunately, my computer crashed and now I’m sitting here, trying to pick up the pieces.  While it’s a first world problem to have lost that great literary genius, I know I won’t be winning any literary prizes for my posts.  Sad, but true.  So here goes part deux:

Well now I’m in my 40’s, so I’m also battling a slowing metabolism, weight gain, and hormone issues.  I won’t let up on the skin care though-and since I can’t feasibly erase every last one of my sunspots or hyper-pigmentation instantly, I rely on foundation(s) to assist me while I take the time to repair my skin.

So I thought I would start a new ‘series’ about what foundations I use.  I really honestly do use a large ‘spectrum’ of products-all the way from drugstore to high end, with some Asian beauty products too.  I’m going to break down what I’m using over several blog posts. I’m going to start with a drugstore combo that’s doing a lot better than I expected.

My skin type is combination with an extra-oily T-zone.  I’m a midday blotter no matter what I use (I should tell you all about my blotting papers!  Maybe something else I can write about?)

cg_olay_simply_ageless-antiaging_foundation_primer_1

 

This primer claims to hydrate and smooth skin for an ageless canvas. Honestly I am not looking for the hydration part, but it definitely does smooth and I appreciate that.  I like this primer because it’s not overly silicone-ish (I can not stand the clear silicone primers like Smashbox photofinish-no way).  This primer hasn’t broken me out and spreads easily across my face.  It doesn’t ‘dry’ but it doesn’t sit on top of my face.  It’s not uncomfortable to wear.

cg_olay_simply_ageless_3_in_1_Liquid_Foundation_11

COVERGIRL + Olay 3 in 1 liquid foundation claims to instantly reduces the look of wrinkles, evens skin tones and delivers firming hydration with the Simply Ageless 3-in-1 foundation. Woo that’s a lot of claims. This foundation covers well (especially when used with the Ageless primer), and does even out my skin tone.  I do find it hydrating (which I don’t need), but on a hot day, I’ve got to stay indoors or have extra blotting papers on hand as it really does tend to ‘melt’ a.k.a. it doesn’t hold up in the heat.  I find setting this foundation with a translucent powder helps a lot. I top it off with a setting spray.

Overall, these are a great duo and I will recommend them for people with normal to dry skin.  They are hydrating and do even and smooth quite well.  Neither of them contain any sunscreen-that’s neither here nor there to me since my moisturizer almost always contains SPF.  Plus they are wallet friendly-these retail for $16.97 CAD and can be found at most mass retailers.

Stay tuned for my next Foundation over 40 post!  Is there any particular foundation you’re interested in seeing me try?  Let me know.

Cleaning up with Olay!

*Disclosure: I am a #BeautyUnited blogger. As part of my affiliation with this group I receive products and special access to P&G events. The opinions on this blog are my own.

I’ve been enjoying summer sans several hurdles (illness being a major hurdle over the past month).  One thing that I have been doing is spending weekends at the family cottage several hours north in ‘cottage country’ -a term that I learned (by living in Canada) could be anywhere there are cottages.  It’s a beautiful serene place, right on a lake.  It’s rustic. I gave up being rustic (for the most part) in 2001 after my honorable discharge from the U.S. Army.  However, I’ll compromise for the cottage….there’s a toilet, running water, and electricity.  Still haven’t ventured into the shower there yet (probably never will). For that reason, when I get back-first order of business, take a thorough shower and CLEAN MY FACE & BODY.  I’d like to walk you through some of the products I use to do this.  Let me know in the comments below if you’ve tried any of these products and if you like them or not!
IMG_4001

Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-aging micro sculpting cream with sunscreen:  This anti-aging moisturizer hydrates to regnerate volume and shape across the skin’s surface.  It’s supposed to improve skin’s texture in 4 weeks and visibly reduces the appearance of wrinkles quickly with an Amino-Peptide Complex.  This product also contains Broad Spectrum SPF 30.

My thoughts:

While I can’t say I have noticed a significant decrease in wrinkles (and I’d love to think I don’t have any significant ones), I do notice an improved skin texture.  It’s also notable that I don’t see any increase in the amount of sun damage I have on my face either!

Olay Total Effects 7 in one Anti-Aging Moisturizer with sunscreen:  This is a daily moisturizer that revives skin and helps protects against harmful UVA/UVB rays. Formulated with Its VitaNiacin Complex and skin conditioners, it fights 7 signs of aging for younger, healthier-looking skin. Its vitamin-rich formula helps reduce the look of age spots, instantly minimize the appearance of pores, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

My thoughts:

I don’t use this product in combination with the sculpting cream but do alternate using the two.  I like this product more for reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and minimizing pores.  The sunscreen is an added bonus. I also like the consistency of this-it’s not runny and it’s not thick.

Olay Deeply Clean Mineral Face Cleanser: This daily facial cleanser lathers and cleanses without over-drying skin. Specially designed for oily/combination skin types, its natural kaolin clay formula controls shine and reduces the appearance of pores in just one use. Infused with a mineral complex, it draws out impurities like a magnet for a deep, down-to-the-pores clean. Dermatologically tested, oil-free, and noncomedogenic, this cleanser has the purifying power of a mask to leave skin looking healthy and brighter.

My thoughts:

I cannot get enough of this product.  I love it as it reminds me of my charcoal cleanser from the Face Shop.  I actually prefer this product as the Face Shop’s version dried my skin out! I have to agree with everything that is said-especially with the combination skin part (I don’t recommend for dry skin).  I have combination skin and this is probably the best part of my nighttime skin care routine.  This gets EVERYTHING off and leaves me nice and clean.  I can skip astringent because I use this – which is not something I can say often.  This is my ‘rockstar’ product out of these for sure.

Olay Fresh Outlast CoolingWhite Strawberry & Mint bodywash: This is designed to work with your skin’s natural pH. This lower sulfate formula has 3x more mild cleansers than before. It’s a fresh twist on cleansing. Aromas of white strawberry & mint leave you feeling refreshed and beautiful.

My thoughts:

This needs to be a cocktail….I’m thinking an on-the-rocks type of gin or vodka?  Or maybe an upscale daiquiri?  Either way, this is a great bodywash to use to feel clean and smell great!  Apparently over time, it’s supposed to provide vibrant, fresh, skin.  I’ll keep you posted.

Summer MUST HAVES!

It’s finally, FINALLY here-we’ve waited so long for the warmer temps, the longer daylight hours, the cocktails on a patio or several.

But when summer does eventually roll up, it’s also important to be READY.  By ready, I mean, making sure your skin is glowing, and your locks are flowing.  Check out my summer must haves!

*Please note, some of these products have been received for review, but not all of them.  I also have backups of most of these, so if you see something in a box, it’s a backup.  Yes, it’s THAT good.*

Smooth skin

IMG_3645

hemlines are movin’ on up as are the temperatures.  Don’t get caught with cactus legs or a non-milk mustache.  For you shavers out there, something I LOVE to use on my legs is this Venus snap razor.  It’s compact, gets the job done with 5 blades and can travel (not that I’m going to be shaving in a public bathroom, but hey, in a pinch…..okay, I’ll leave that there).  Pair the snap with this  Olay  Satin Care shaving gel, and you are good to go!

For the face, I use these skin envy strips.  No muss, no fuss and they REALLY work (I did a youtube demo on these, so I know). What’s great about these strips is that they are a natural product and since the strips are prepared already, no messy wax on your fingers!

IMG_3646

Oh, and don’t forget to exfoliate PRIOR to shaving-so important to loosen up all the ingrown hairs and remove dead skin.  My current exfoliation product is this Kohna Coffee foaming sugar scrub from Sweet Pea Soap Company (a local company in Toronto).  I like it because it’s not a harsh exfoliator-AND it foams up like a soap after you rub it in.  Cool!  Bonus that it’s a natural product, made locally, and the business is owned by a woman.  All wins!

As the hemlines move up, don’t forget to keep your jiggles in check….cottage cheese is a great snack but not appetizing on the legs.  To reduce the appearance of celulite, use a caffeine containing cream like this Vichy Cellu Destock Serum Flash.  It’s also got hyaluronic acid and light reflecting pearls so your skin appears smoother and has a firmer texture.  Your other option? Liposuction…..so I’ll take the Vichy, thanks.

 

Soft, flowing locks

IMG_3648

It’s no secret that I color my hair (well I have someone color it that is).  I keep it well protected.  My picks for products include the Vidal Sassoon Color Finity line.  This line was specifically designed to protect color treated hair.  In addition to shampoo and conditioner, there is a hairspray AND a cleansing conditioner (so all you Wen people listen up!).  I love this line and use it religiously to maintain FRESH color!  To finish off my look after shampoo, cleansing and styling, I use the Herbal Essences Shine mist, spritzing lightly around my entire head.  Voila!  Smooth, shiny hair.

IMG_3649

For in-between shampoo days, dry shampoos are a GREAT idea.  Some of my current favorites include the Pantene line (I am so glad they finally came out with dry shampoo), the Herbal Essence sNaked line, and Finesse.  The herbal essences product is PERFECT to put in your purse-I keep mine in my desk drawer at work (and it’s still there, so I can’t show it to you). Great for touch ups during the day.

Treatment-wise, I like to use the liveclean Miracle Nutrition Oil on my ends.  This is a treatment you use BEFORE shampoo, and works wonderfully to keep your hair nourished.   Since I’m blonde and my hair is fine, my ends are prone to splitting.  I find that this keeps that in check.  My tip?  Shake it to activate….it says that on the directions but don’t forget!

IMG_3654

My favorite summer cocktail includes these 2 products from Greg May (Greg May Hair Architects in Toronto).  The recipe goes a little something like this: 1 pump Be Strong Keratin-Infused transforming Serum + 1 pump Smooth Operator Leave-In Conditioner.  Mix well and emulsify in the palm of your hands and apply to hair.  Style as usual.  I find the combination of these 2 products really fights the flyaways and the frizzies. The best part of this cocktail? No calories AND fabulous hair!

 

Glowing skin! 

IMG_3650

Anyone else here a  tanning bed convert?  Unfortunately, I will admit that in the early part of  2007, I was using tanning beds like crazy.  My skin has suffered from it-greatly.  While I am actively working on repairing my sun damage, I STILL crave my summer ‘glow.’  How do I achieve it?  Honestly, I love going to Me & T studio in Toronto to have a custom airbrush tan (that post is coming up).  If I can’t make it to the studio, I use Hawaiian Tropic Island Radiance Creme Self Tanner. This is a spray lotion that applies easily to skin with minimal streaking.  My tip about streaking? If you’re concerned or worried, mix the Tropic Island Glow into your lotion and apply. The only down side to self tanning at home is that there is some drying time involved.  I just use that time to walk around and do housework.  A clean house and faux glow? YES PLEASE! Ladies and gents if you are fair skinned like I am, please consider applying self tanner before wearing shorts/skirts.  It does wonders for the appearance of your legs, they look thinner and firmer and it won’t blind everyone else in close proximity. I have my University roommate to thank for pointing this out to me one summery day many years ago. 

glowing skin is one thing but what about protection from the sun? The sun’s rays ARE damaging, we know this, it’s been proven.  Applying sunscreen? Not my favorite thing but there are several products that I like and all sorts of new technology available to suit your every SPF related need.

For my face, I have been LOVE-LOVE-LOVE-ing this L’Oreal Paris BB sunscreen. It has a touch of tint, the right amount of glow and SPF 50.  Lately, I’ve been wearing it on its own.

For the rest of me, there are 3 products that really stand out to me and surprisingly, NONE are lotions!  The Vichy Capital Soleil SPF 30 is an Invisible, alcohol free mist that is dry upon application.  I love it because it is SO SO light and the scent is amazing.  It also has a cooling effect on the skin.  I just read that it’s formulated for people with active lifestyles, possibly indicating that it’s sweatproof.  I know Vichy products can be a bit pricey, but this is your skin we’re talking about here.  You know, the largest organ you have?  Make the investment.

L’Oreal Paris has a fantastic Sublime Sun sunscreen line of products that include lotions, sprays, a mousse and an alcohol free spray! The Silky Sheer SPF 30 Mousse is one of my *new* favorites.  Incredibly light, broad spectrum protection with Vitamin E.  And a light summer scent.  I’m also enjoying the Invisible protect Dry Oil Spray, also containing Vitamin E.  The oil is water resistant so if you are a swimmer, you may want to check it out.

Keep in mind, dear readers, you need a full shot glass of sunscreen to protect your body.  What you put in that shot glass afterwards is up to you of course 😉

And what about the face?

IMG_3651

Well after sunscreen, good skin care is important….especially in the summer.  I’ve been loving the Olay FreshEffects Out of this Swirled deep pore clean & exfoliating scrub.  I use this 3 times a week to clear my pores of pollution, dirt and debris (one of the downers about working in the city-skin is exposed to so many ickies).   At night, I also use the tea tree toner from Sweet Pea Soap Company.  It makes sure my pores are spotless AND doesn’t leave my skin tight or itchy-again, a completely natural product!

the under-eye area is of concern to me now that I’ve moved into my 40th year on this planet (more than half way through it too-whoah).  2 products that I’m a big fan of (so much so that I have BACK-UPS) are from Olay total effects.  The eye brightening CC cream is a daily treatment that provides coverage and correction to the eye area.  I like it because it feels cool when it’s applied and has a slight tint.  I don’t have time to mess around with concealer in the summer and find that all of my concealers are way too light for me!  I pat this on, blend it in lightly and I’m set.  I also have a crush on the dark circle minimizing CC cream (in a brush applicator).  This is the product that comes in my purse with me and hides my lack of sleep days.  It’s portable and no fingers required for application!! What I truly love about these 2 products is how light they are and how much coverage they provide.

Since my skin is oily, touch ups aren’t an option for me, they are mandatory.  I enjoy having wet cloths around (in my desk and in my purse).  The Olay total effects 7 wet cloths remove makeup but don’t strip the skin dry. They are just handy to have around….especially after my lunch hour yoga class. I didn’t know it was possible to sweat that much in yoga…..phew!

Speaking of sweating…..we all do it AND it’s a good sign that you’re properly hydrated  (but don’t forget to drink LOTS of water especially if you’re in the sun frequently).  However, the odor…..it’s like the elephant in the room.  Instead of trying to act cool (with your arms glued to your side), how about you just BE cool and use this Secret Outlast antiperspirant.  This product goes the extra mile to keep you cool, calm and collected.

Finishing touches.

IMG_3652

I tend to keep it light in the summer…..very rarely will I wear foundation unless I’m heading off to an event, wedding, party, date.  Right now, I’m using the Olay total effects CC tone correcting moisturizer with sunscreen. If I feel the need, I’ll layer it over the L’Oreal Silky Sheer BB cream.  This product evens out skin tone, provides light coverage and contains a broad spectrum sunscreen.

One more product that needs a HUGE mention.  Marcelle CC cream.  Yes.  I actually use this year round and adore it….I mean adore it.  It has 24k gold in it, and that’s a good reason to love it but I like it because it just blends SO well into my skin.  I have even cracked the lid.  I will buy this again and again….Marcelle was one of the first Canadian companies to make a BB, CC, AND DD cream by the way.  I like the BB and the DD but my heart is with the CC.

Makeup is kept quite light too.  This Covergirl Cheekers blush in  180 brick rose complements my summer face beautifully and doesn’t require a lot of product.   I like to make a statement so Covergirl lipstick in 325 Spellbound gives me that pop I need on my lips (a feature I tend to emphasize).  Finally, if you’re feeling frisky (or you’re me), take things up a notch with the Covergirl shadow pot in 305.  I pop this in the corner and blend slightly into the crease….it’s part business and part PARTY!!!

Fragrance you say? 

IMG_3653

I have my favorites…..one of my recents is Yardley English Lavender.  I still can’t believe how great this smells and was ready to write up a scathing review of it but it’s just SO beautiful.  Another favorite of mine would be Theirry Mugler Alien Aqua Chic.  It’s his Alien fragrance but lighter….good for the office, especially mine-so many scent sensitive folks around these days.

And there you have it-my summer favorites. Does this all go on my face and body simultaneously? NO, of course not but this is my summer repetoire. I have been trying to use reasonably priced products as I’m finding that the technology and quality of drugstore brands has improved a LOT!

What are your summer favorites and would you try any of the products I’ve listed above?   Let me know in the comments below!

Thanks for reading…..I truly appreciate all of you who take the time to read my posts and comment.

 

#beautyunited Spring/Summer 2014 -looks!

*This is a #beautyunited post*
If you have picked up a fashion magazine, watched a commercial, or even passed by a billboard, 2014 fashion trends are EVERYWHERE! I was thumbing through one of my favorite magazines, Elle Canada and was inspired to recreate some of the looks from Covergirl and Olay.

 

The look that caught my eye the most was the Gilded Glory…..

So I watched this video to see how to put it together (sans the hairstyle since my hair is now short):

 

I really enjoyed the bombshell shine shadows and am hoping to put them into my permanent rotation. You already know how I feel about the CC cream. The jumbo gloss balm in Jam Twist was an instant favorite of mine!

on the eyes:

Covergirl Balmshell Shine Shadow in Gold Goddess

Covergirl Balmshell Shine Shadow in Color Me Money

Covergirl Balmshell Shine Shadow in Copper Flair

on the lips:

Covergirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Jam Twist

on the face:

Olay Total effects CC cream

My only question is-where are all the models with short hair? Seriously, everyone is cutting their hair short (Coco Rocha recently cut her hair VERY short).

Take a minute to browse the different looks-What do you think of the looks? I like that they are wearable and don’t involve a lot of products. These looks are kind to the wallet too!
