Olay Whips with SPF : My New Go-To Moisturizer

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine. SPF – that important thing you always hear about but don’t always incorporate into your routine. I’ll admit, I’m completely guilty of this. As I’m getting older though (I turned 36 a couple months ago) I’m hearing more and more of things I could have done to prevent some of my skin issues and SPF is mentioned All. The. Time. Why do I skip it? It’s not on purpose. I’m not a morning person and I just genuinely forget to apply it.  I cleanse my skin, exfoliate every couple of days, moisturize and do my makeup and then run out the door. I miss the part about applying SPF with my moisturizer. Part of me also thinks “Well, I’m indoors almost all day, it’s okay to skip!” No it’s not. While…

Clarins Hydra-Essential Cooling Gel Moisturizer

Press Sample Affiliate Link A few months ago I joined a new network that is specifically geared toward Instagram and Youtube more than the physical blog.  While I love my blog, sometimes I get a little overwhelmed when work is busier and my son’s schedule is all over the place. The network is Octoly (for those curious) and it allows me to try out new brands and do mini reviews or features on my Instagram account. What does this have to do with Clarins Hydra-Essential Cooling Gel Moisturizer? Well, I received it through Octoly to feature on my Instagram, and I loved it so much that I decided to do a full review on it. Clarins Hydra-Essential Cooling Gel Moisturizer is recommended for normal to combination skin, but it also helps problems such as redness, dullness and uneven texture as well as dryness. I personally have combination skin and most moisturizers…

Keep Your Skin Moisturized This Fall With Vaseline Spray Moisturizer

This post was written in partnership with Vaseline My skin is entirely too fussy. In the Summer it gets oily and sticky, but in the Fall it gets dry, flaky and itches like crazy if I don’t moisturize properly. I usually keep a large pump bottle of Vaseline moisturizer on my desk at work, but I need something quick, easy and effective for at home when I get out of the shower – and that’s where Vaseline Spray Moisturizer comes in handy. The continuous spray is designed for easy application and even all-over coverage. The unique formula is infused with micro-droplets of Vaseline Jelly and leaves skin soft, not greasy or sticky. Instead of pumping out product into my hand and then hoisting my leg up on a ledge, I can grab my bottle of Vaseline Spray Moisturizer and simply spray it all over (even while holding the bottle at…

Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 Review

Press Sample Looking for a nice, lightweight moisturizer with sunscreen in it?  Then look no further, Dermalogica has you covered with their Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50. Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 features the same  fast-absorbing formula as their SPF30 version.  It contains Antioxidant White Tea, which is rich in polyphenols, inhibits lipid peroxide formation and helps neutralize free radicals. It also contains patented Oleosome encapsulation technology which boosts sunscreen effectiveness for critical protection against UV rays. The packaging is a sleek white plastic, airtight pump bottle with a silver cap.  I prefer my skin products like moisturizers to be in pump bottles like this so that was a plus right off the bat for me. Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery is fairly lightweight, but because I have oilier skin I do have to apply sparingly, but I still find that 2 pumps of product covers my entire face and neck.  If I…

InstaNatural Age Defying Moisturizer Cream Review

Disclaimer Dealing with Fine Lines, Crow’s Feet and Wrinkles? Then you CAN’T AFFORD to miss out on our revolutionary Youth Express Age-Defying Moisturizer. • Reduces dryness by providing unsurpassed hydration to skin. • Helps firm the skin. • Improves tone & texture. • Provides you with a more radiant and glowing complexion than ever before I used InstaNatural Age Defying Moisturizer Cream for a couple of weeks and it’s a pretty awesome cream.  It left my skin soft and was just an overall good cream.  Soaked in fast, non greasy and left my skin looking healthy. Downside?  Only one I can find is that it doesn’t have SPF in it.  If it contained SPF, this would be my #1 pick every morning.  But because I need SPF in my moisturizer, I haven’t reached for it too much after the initial testing period was completed. The InstaNatural Age Defying Moisturizer Cream comes in a…
