This Olay is Moisturizer, Sunscreen and a Light Dreamy Toner All in One.

This is me. No filter. Me, after that outrageous Bob-Harper-is-the-Devil workout last week. I am flushed, but I feel good. Trying to avoid having it go to my head, but in the worst shape of my life with my self-esteem in the dumps, this picture resulted in an incredible number of positive, glowing reactions. Maybe some readers were happy I was finally doing the right thing for myself. Loved ones enjoyed that I actually took a self-portrait -- there are very few pictures of me in existence when I am not happy with how I look.  Read more

Olay Delivers on Multiple Fronts

Everyone has at least one physical feature they covet but will seemingly never possess without surgical -- or divine -- intervention: a straight little nose, long, shapely legs, full lips, a flat stomach. (And anyone who says they don’t is either lying or a Ukranian fashion model.) My if-only feature fantasy has always been beautiful skin. I had some serious acne in my teens and early twenties (which I fetchingly spackled over with heavy foundation -- in my prom pictures I look like an awkward geisha who’s been let loose in a Jessica McClintock outlet).  Read more

This Olay is Perfect For No-Makeup Days

I recently got the opportunity to try out a new product from Olay®. It's the Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer. It's supposed to fight seven signs of aging, all in one product! Read on to find out what I think! Olay has a long history in the skincare market. It started in the 1950's with Oil of Olay Beauty Fluid. Today, Olay offers quite an array of skincare products, especially products aimed at anti-aging  Read more

Skip an Extra Step With Olay

Spring is approaching pretty fast around these parts, and it’s time for me to evaluate and assess my facial skin regimen. I tend to wear less makeup and lighter moisturizers during the warmer months. It’s time to let my face breathe a bit! Olay is introducing Olay® Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer. Olay Total Effects minimizes the look of spots instantly, helps with the appearance of discoloration and fights the seven signs of aging.  Read more

Olay Kills 10 Birds with One Stone

When I was in aesthetics school, they had one of those black-light booth things that you put your face in to reveal the extent of your sun damage. Suffice it to say, mine was that of an 80-year-old woman living on a Polynesian island. All those years of baby-oil-sun-worshipping had gotten the best of my skin. Although I try to stay on top of my pigment issues, sometimes it is hard to do an extra step in the morning, ya know?  Read more

I'm Adding Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer Into My Routine.

I've had the opportunity to review several of Olay's products in the past and I have honestly been very pleased with all of them. Recently I was excited to try out Olay® Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer. Moisturizer is something I tend to be pretty lazy about. I know it's one of the more important things when it comes to beauty routine or preserving beauty per se. But often I'll just put some make-up on and go or wash my face, brush my teeth and hop in bed. I just think one more step can be kind of daunting.  Read more

My Skin Feels Smoother With Olay

So I know I'm not that old -- 27 to be exact. Still, I've been wanting to start some kind of anti-aging routine or product, kind of a pre-emptive defense of my skin, so to speak. I have semi-decent skin, with some breakouts on my nose -- definitely combo skin. My T-zone can get oily sometimes. Wow, I bet you wish you didn't know that. No going back now, sorry! So when BlogHer and Olay contacted me to review their Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer I was really excited to try it out!  Read more

I Really Like this Olay Moisturizer!

After I hit puberty, and all through high school and university, I was regarded as the lucky one. Lucky, because I had minimal acne. While my sisters and friends battled mild to severe acne, I got away with occasional outbreaks which, when they quickly passed on, rarely left any spot behind. But I didn't really consider myself that lucky. You know like when people keep pointing out your blessings, and you don't know how to say "but what about this other thing?"  Read more

Daily Protection from the Florida Sun from Olay

What do little boys, puppies, and a home business have in common? All three of them start stampeding in the early morning, and they don't leave much time for primping. I wasn't sure if I would ever make time for facial moisturizer in the mornings, but now that I've tried Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer, little boys will just have to wait a bit!  Read more

Olay Review and Giveaway!

Oh yeah, it's another sponsored post and giveaway. I'm on a roll with these! They are pretty fun, and I get to try stuff and give my honest opinion and give something away to you guys. I received a bottle of Olay® Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer to try and review. I was pretty skeptical because I have skin like a freak of nature. I get dry and peely really easily, and my cheeks turn bright red if I use a product that doesn't agree with me.  Read more
