Olay Review- Unwanted Hair

Let's talk about hair for a minute. Unwanted hair. With so many ways to manage it (and we really hope that you do!) it can get quite confusing. Bleach? Wax? Laser? Thread? Tweeze? Whatís a girl to do?

I was able to review the New Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo and found it to be an easy and quick at-home solution! I especially appreciate this product now that pregnancy hormones have kicked in and some of us might find ourselves a bit more...fuzzy now-a-days. Just one more pregnancy blessing!

New Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo is a uniquely formulated two-step system designed to gently, yet effectively remove unwanted facial hair, leaving skin smooth, conditioned, and visibly hair free. And it did just that. So simple, and more importantly, so easy for those of us with busy schedules. And who doesn't have a busy schedule these days? This was such an easy way to simplify my beauty routine.

It's important for us, as women, to feel confident and feel good about ourselves. And let's face it, it's hard to feel confident with a uni-brow and 'stache in tow. Taking care of ourselves inside and out is key. The New Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo helps you gain confidence as well as femininity. No one wants to look like Cousin IT. Am I right?

Not only was this product fast and easy, but it was also very gentle on my skin. This gentle hair removal system contains a Skin Guarding Balm, applied before the removal cream, that hydrates the skin to minimize irritation, redness, and other tell-tale signs associated with hair removal creams. I was so happy with the result. My skin felt great, smooth and hairless.

Let me tell you a little story about a certain green gel my cousin and I got into one night. You may be familiar with this product, but it will remain nameless. For one reason or another, we thought it would be fun to have ourselves a little hair removal party. Long story short and two half-brows later, we were both in tears. Our skin was bright red! Not to mention it was picture day at school the next day. I. Almost. Died. Which brings me to why I loved this product so much. Great for all skin types (even sensitive) and for those who donít have the luxury of living by C--queen of the wax pot!

I express my inner beauty with my hair! My hair style can usually tell you what kind of day I'm having or how I'm feeling inside. A big fun up-do is a fierce day. A low simple bun is a demure day. And my hair down and wild is a crazy-out-of-my-way day!

What inspires my inner beauty is my hubby & little girl. They let me know that I don't have to wear makeup to be pretty. They love me for who I am even if I wake up with drool on my face & eyebrows growing out of my eyeballs lol jk! They do tease me because I get a mustache here and there. It gets embarassing when we're out in public and they do it. It's hard to always apply makeup when your hard at work being a wife/mother! Don't get me wrong I love makeup & dressing up but sometimes it just doesn't work that way. That's why I'm glad I have great supporters behind me, afterall their the only opinions that count! :) This is my inner beauty inspired by my world!
