When I was in aesthetics school, they had one of those black-light booth things that you put your face in to reveal the extent of your sun damage. Suffice it to say, mine was that of an 80-year-old woman living on a Polynesian island. All those years of baby-oil-sun-worshipping had gotten the best of my skin. Although I try to stay on top of my pigment issues, sometimes it is hard to do an extra step in the morning, ya know?
When I got the chance, I was so excited to try†OlayÆ Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer. We all know how much I love Olay anyway, and new products make me giddy with excitement. The thing I love about this moisturizer is that it kills, like, 10 birds with one stone. Moisture, check. Sheer, dewy coverage, check. SPF, check. AND (you're not going to believe this), it fights all the classic signs of aging! Pesky lines, lack of moisture, uneven tone, eye puffiness, etc. The thing I was most excited about, though, is that it reduces the appearance of dark spots! Hallelujah, finally a non-abrasive product I can use daily to help fix the appearance of my sun sins!
Basically, it is the easiest thing to use. You can put it on before your moisturizer or AS your moisturizer or before your make-up or AS your makeup! I did both and the results were really amazing both times. I used it by itself and it provided just the right amount of sheer coverage and moisture to make me feel good about going out in public. I also used it under my make-up and found that it provided a really silky base that perfectly complemented my other make-up. And is it just me, or does my skin already look better? Either way, it's all very exciting.†
Now that I am saving time on my make-up and skin care regime, tell me your secrets to carving out time to take care of your skin! Leave a comment for the chance to win a $50 Visa gift card!
