Olay Total Effects Adds a Few Minutes to my Day!
This post is brought to you by Olay Total Effects, all of the words and opinions are my own!
My readers know a few basics about me:
- I have six kids, and thus, a crazy life.
- I like to look good, but I don’t want to fuss.
Let’s face it, moms. We are not getting any younger. Our lack of sleep may be catching up with us.
Not only that, as things in my body change (and boy, are things changing), my skin is changing too. I used to have a youthful, dewy, complexion. It used to be true that I looked better without make-up than with it.
Now, my combination skin leans more towards dry. And, sadly, I look better with at least a touch of make-up. I still prefer a very natural, unmade-up look, but I need some behind-the-scenes help.
In my dream world I would have a plush master bath with a puffy seat and fancy mirrors and calming music in the background to get ready each day. But, my reality is that I get ready each day in about 5 minutes. With an audience.
This is the background music I hear as I make myself presentable each day.
“Mommy, what you doing?”
“Putting lotion on my face, Sweetie.”
“Why you put dat on you face?”
“Because Mommy’s face is dry.”
“I get some water and make Mommy’s face wet. See Mommy, my face wet!”
“Not that kind of dry honey.”
“Mommy, why you brush you teeth?”
You can see where this goes. Getting ready for the day is not blissful; it is rushed, and full of explanations.
Which is why I am really enjoying Olay Total Effects Coverage plus Correction cream.
Total Effects fights the 7 signs of aging:
- Fine lines and wrinkles: reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven Tone: balances and helps even out tone
- Age Spots: reduces appearance of discoloration
- Gentle Exfoliation: Improves surface cell turnover
- Dryness: provides nourishing moisturization
- Moisture Barrier: strengthens skin’s natural defense against moisture loss
- Luminosity: recaptures youthful luminosity
And it does all of this in about 30 seconds a day and one little tube.
My facial routine now consists of washing my face in the shower (I am all about multitasking), and then smoothing on a pumpful of Olay Total Effects Coverage plus Correction. AS I mentioned earlier, my skin is quite dry lately, so I was not sure such a small amount would hydrate my facial skin, but since it is a tinted moisturizer, I knew I should not over-apply it. However, from the very first day, my skin has felt smooth, hydrated and finished. All I have to do is add a swoop of mascara and slip on some lip gloss!
