Resurface Your Skin At Home With New Products From Olay

Always on the look out for ways to make my 40 something skin look fabulous, I have been using this one-two punch from Olay at night for a few weeks. The products are the Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System and the Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Aging Moisturize Night Resurfacing Elixir. They are from two different Olay lines, but they work together to help aging skin look younger and glowy. The products are:

 Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System ($29.99 USD) — This includes a battery-powered brush with bristles that rotate to cleanse the skin deeply plus Pro-X Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser.  Designed by a team of dermatologists along with Olay, the Advanced Cleansing System claims to be as effective as a system sold by skin professionals for nearly $200.

I have not tried the higher end systems (like the Clarisonic), but I really do like this one. I have used it with the Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser and with other cleansers as well. To use, dampen facial skin and brush head lightly with water. Dispense cleanser in your hand and massage over face. Turn on cleansing brush and gently move around the face for approximately 60 seconds. Avoid the eye area. Rinse face and brush head with water. After cleansing, skin is soft and so clean!

After cleansing, I apply Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Aging Moisturize Night Resurfacing Elixir. What does it do?

  • When applied each night, the non-greasy, fast-absorbing formula with glycolic acid works over a normal sleep cycle to give you uninterrupted exfoliation while antioxidants and moisturizers continuously provide soothing hydration to tighten skin’s surface
  • Light glycolic peel resurfaces skin nightly for tighter, smoother skin

This treatment is a great daily exfoliater and is easy because it does its work while you are sleeping! I have noticed that my skin is tighter and my skin tone is more even. I have very sensitive skin and it makes my skin a little red, but doesn’t irritate. When I wake up in the morning, my skin looks brighter and smoother.

The combo of a good cleansing and nighttime treatment has really started to improve my skin. Olay is always introducing technologically advance products at really affordable prices. So go ahead and try these. Visit www.olay.com to learn more and you can purchase at drugstores and mass market retailers near you. Enjoy!

    Sante America is a new brand that I just discovered. The Soft Cream Foundation ($17.00 USD) is very easy to apply, plus it feels and looks extremely natural.  This foundation is light and hydrating to keep skin soft and supple. Cupuaçu butter, Pomegranate extract, and Organic Jojoba oils are richly emollient, without being heavy, which makes for even application. The 3 natural colors come courtesy of pure mineral pigments and our multi-ethnic line makes it easy to find your perfect shade.

    I love the silky feel of this foundation and the natural, but flawless coverage I get from the foundation. Also, it does not feel heavy on.

    Yves Rocher Perfect Primer ($12.50 USD) is perfect under either of these foundations. This primer, infused with rose, preps skin for makeup and helps it last longer, to ensure a flawless complexion all day long.

    Enriched with musk rose oil, Damask rose extract and Damask rosewater, it instantly fades fine lines and imperfections, such as enlarged pores and signs of fatigue. Skin texture is visibly smoother. I have found that my complexion looks radiant even without foundation and when I apply foundation, it seems to last longer.
