Olay Total Effects { Review and Giveaway } #PGMom





 

 As a young girl, I remember looking at my grandmother in admiration.  She and my grandfather were my heroes.  My cousins, brothers and I had such respect for our grandparents. Hardworking, welcoming, and caring people, it was hard not to look up to them.
Not only was my grandmother a beautiful person on the inside, but she was so remarkably beautiful on the  outside too. 

I remember cuddling with her as a little girl and putting my hand on her silky smooth face.  She was always so stunning! Impeccable skin. I'm talking flawless skin! She also looked decades younger than she actually was!

As a teen, I once asked her, "What's your secret? How do get such amazing skin?!"

Her answer?

"Oil of Olay, twice a day."

My grandmother was the epitome of "classic beauty". She was poised, always dressed well and always had her hair and make-up done just perfectly.

I realize this sounds like a TV commercial, but it's not.  Now that I'm a grown woman and a mother myself, I have adopted some of my grandmother's secrets. From composting vegetable and fruit scraps long before it was the popular thing to do, to keeping a sachet of lavender around to smell when a headache was bad, my grandmother had things right.  She used olive oil, honey, and lots of natural ingredients - things that I practice from learning from observing her in the kitchen. 

I took my grandmother's advice to heart and I've been an Olay girl for the longest time.  



Thought I've been an Olay user for what seems like forever and prefer to stick to my favourite products, I am always excited to see the new products Olay comes out with. Because I am getting older, and age is starting to show, I am very selective when it comes to what I put on my face.

I always used to joke that Asians always look younger than we actually are (I still get carded when buying wine at the LCBO!), I do see the signs of aging in my skin. I'm also worried that my years of sun worshiping have caused my skin to age prematurely.  I love spending time outdoors, especially in the Summertime. Even with wearing a wide-brimmed hat and sunscreen, I think it's still not enough to stop the damage from the sun. I've always had blemish-free skin. It seems I now have freckles!

It’s never too early or too late to start taking care of your skin and defending against the seven signs of aging with a high-quality facial regime like Olay Total Effects. 

Olay Total Effects Daily Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer Plus Touch of Foundation Cream provides seven anti-aging benefits including line appearance minimization, nourishing moisturization, subtle appearance firming, brightening, gentle exfoliation, pore appearance refinement and anti-oxidants. It helps renew, restore and protect from UV rays for aging skin with the added benefit of a sheer foundation for immediate tone improvement.  
I love this product! The Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer Plus Touch of Foundation Cream is my new must have product! It helps nourish my skin and makes it look amazing! If I'm in a rush, I just apply this, some lip gloss and a bit of eye make-up, and I'm good to go!

Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Anti-Aging Eye Cream Line and Dark Circle Minimizing Brush helps to instantly reduce the appearance of darkness under the eye all in one sweep of a brush. It contains a daily under-eye moisturizer that hydrates to firm skin’s appearance and minimizes the look of fine lines and a hint of tint instantly reduces the appearance of dark circles.  
 The Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Anti-Aging Eye Cream Line and Dark Circle Minimizing Brush really does make a noticeable difference. Love the brush too!

Olay Total Effects Refreshing Citrus Scrub offers an invigorating scrub that cleanses your skin without over-drying. Formulated with oil-absorbing beads, it gently exfoliates and cleanses thoroughly while the citrus- kissed formula refreshed your skin. 
One word: Citrus! I'm a huge lover of citrus scented anything! Helps that this scrub is gentle on my sensitive skin.
Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting Night Moisturizer provides deep hydration and helps fight signs of aging with a vitamin-rich complex designed to smooth away the appearance of discolouration and age spots as you sleep. 
Anything that helps fight the signs of aging while I sleep sounds good to me! I'm extremely worried about age spots. I have one or two right now and they really bug me.
Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting Eye Treatment treats the sensitive and delicate skin under the eye that needs to be treated with TLC. This treatment diminishes the look of under-eye darkness and helps to fight seven signs of aging. 
What Mom doesn't suffer from lack of sleep? I don't know about you, but I have a bit of darkness under the eyes every now and then. I love the Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting Eye Treatment.

Teresa M. said...

I have been trying different eye creams and haven't found 'the one' yet. I would try the Total Effects Eye Cream. It comes with a gentle applicator brush. I think that is a great tool because the skin around the eye is so fragile.

Glogirl said...

I would like to try the Olay Total Effects Daily Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer Plus Touch of Foundation Cream to fight the beginning signs of aging and to even out my skin tone.

I would like to try Total Effects 7x Visible Anti-Aging Moisturizing Complex—UV Protection because I think as important it is to moisturize it is also just as important to protect your skin from sun damage.

hi c- too bad it's not open for your u.s. readers! :)

i love olay products. even though i don't have any (discernable) face wrinkles, i DO admit to using their anti-wrinkle night cream. it's so thick and really hydrates my skin at night. i keep crossing my fingers that my Filipina genes will keep me wrinkle free 'til I'm at least in my 50's!

lelalacc said...

I'd like to try the Total Effects Body Wash—Exfoliate & Replenish. I love a moisturizing body wash that also exfoliates - it makes your skin feel so much cleaner, smoother, and softer.
