I have always been a fan of Olay products. I have used their Regenerist line for years, even though I don't have many visible signs of aging yet. (Hey, I'm trying to stop wrinkles before they start!) Olay is a brand that I have grown to trust, because I know that these products actually do what they say they'll do, and they don't break the bank which is always a major, major plus!
So when I received the opportunity to review their brand new line called Fresh Effects, I was very excited. This line focuses on making the skin look and feel fresh and rejuvenated. The awesome folks at Olay sent me a variety of their products as well as a super cute Fresh & Fab 101 Vanity. That was a huge surprise, and my daughter absolutely freaked when she saw it. So of course, I just had to give her the vanity...But I kept the Fresh Effects products for myself!
My Review of Olay Fresh Effects :
Before I get into detail about the Fresh Effects products, I just have to show off the adorable vanity they came packaged in. How cute is this?! No wonder my little girl claimed it!
Isn't that great?! Okay, now for the good stuff. I received several awesome Olay Fresh Effects products, and I'd like to tell you a bit about them.
First, there is the Fresh Effects VA-VA-VIVID! Powered Contour Cleansing System. (Isn't that a neat name?) This is paired with the Shine, Shine Go Away! - Shine Minimizing Cleanser. At first I was a bit skeptical of the little brush, and was concerned it would leave my skin red and irritated. Well, that was not the case at all! After using this cleanser, it felt as though I had an intensive facial at a luxurious spa. My skin was brighter, clean, and baby soft.
Yes! Olay has a BB Cream! I am slightly obsessed with BB Cream in general because it's really a multi-functional product that moisturizes, primes, covers, and corrects. It's a miracle in a tube, in my humble opinion. Olay's version is definitely pretty amazing. It provided tons of moisture and the amount of cover is perfect. It looks very natural but hides any imperfections or discoloration of the skin very effectively. This is probably my favorite product of all!
I also adore the Long Live Moisture Satin Finish Lotion. This lotion is very lightweight but leaves the skin feeling velvety soft. There is no weird residue, either. The best thing about this lotion is that it lasts all day. No need to reapply, even with dry, parched skin!
I have to admit it...I am the mom of toddlers, so I am totally guilty of using baby wipes to remove make-up. Isn't that awful?! Well, I also got to try some awesome S'wipe Out Refreshing Make-Up Removal Cloths. These handy wipes get even the tough to remove, color-stay make-up off with no scrubbing necessary. They're also super soft and leave the skin feeling very fresh and clean. Bye bye, baby wipes! I will be using these babies from now on!
Last but certainly not least, there is the Bead Me Up Exfoliating Cleanser. This awesome cleanser is very gentle to the skin, but removes dead skin very effectively thanks to little "beads" in the product. I use this a couple times a week, and apply in a smooth, circular motion. It definitely makes my skin much brighter and smoother! Oh, and unlike many exfoliating products, this didn't irritate my skin at all. This product is definitely spa-quality, but for a fraction of the price!
Overall, I definitely love the Olay Fresh Effects line. These products are amazing, and really do make my skin look and feel fresh and youthful. I'd definitely recommend these products to anyone looking for a skin care routine that's simple and fun. These products are great for all ages, too! So whether you've got a teen daughter or you're 30+, Fresh Effects is sure to give fantastic results. Of course coming from Olay, I wouldn't expect anything less.
