Say Olay!

by Christina

Hello everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day weekend with the ones you love :) A warm welcome to those who have just recently become my fan on facebook also, I appreciate the lovely messages and support! Now down to business, lets talk beauty!!

I've received a lot of questions lately regarding my favorite drug store brands. I have quite a few, so I am going to break it down in segments to make things a little easier. When recommending drugstore skincare product to clients, only one brand comes to mind: Olay. Time and time again this brand has received very prestigious awards for quality, performance and results all within a wonderful price point. Here are some of my favorite products:

1) Olay Active Hydrating Beauty Fluid
This water based, non greasy moisturizer is non-comedogenic and is light enough to use on most skin types. I love this especially for oily skin (YES, you still need to moisturize if you are oily!) because of it's light texture and ability to add moisture but not block your pores. If you are looking for something with a little more anti-aging properties to it, this may not be the moisturizer for you (look into Olay's regenerist brand) but for someone who needs a regular, everyday boost of moisture...this is your perfect match! *Note* this formula also comes in an SPF!

2) Olay Foaming Face Wash, Sensitive Skin 
This cleanser is %100 soap, oil, fragrance and dye free, so perfect for even the most sensitive type of skin. If you are not sensitive, this is still a great buy and here is why: Soap in a cleanser tends to strip the skin of it's essential oils making skin feel harsh, dry and lackluster. And just because there isnt soap does not mean it doesnt clean. This thoroughly removes dirt, oil, and make-up.  It also contains oil free moisturizers and helps your skin retain its own natural moisture.

3)  Olay Daily Facials Express, Wet Cleansing Cloths- Sensitive Skin
I cannot sing enough praises about this product. I....JUST....LOVE....IT!! These are wonderful because they are so versatile. I have had these stocked in my makeup kit for years and once used on a client, they fall in love so quickly I am usually giving them the rest of the pack on the spot. This fragrance free, alcohol free product combines a special formula of Olay moisture, Vitamin E and Aloe so it leaves your skin refreshed, hydrated, and cleansed! These are not only perfect for simply cleansing the face, they are also wonderful for a quick makeup error fix as well. I take them every ware I go....the gym, on set, in my purse...I have them on me anyware I go!

Now mind you, these are only a few Olay product recommendations, again...I will blog about more of their fantastic products in segments. If your curious about the brand and are looking to try a few products, the ones i've written about above are great ones to start with. Until next time-
