OLAY TOTAL EFFECTS: Review & Giveaway -- Contest Closed!


CONTEST CLOSED!
A couple of weeks ago, I was blessed to be asked by MyBlogSpark (TM) to sample and review the new Olay Total Effects Body Wash -- Deep Penetrating Moisture.

I've used it for a week now and I really, really like this product!
It's been so dry and cold down South this winter and my skin has suffered. The fact that I'll be turning 50 this year doesn't help, either... Did I say that out loud???
Olay Total Effects Body Wash has helped immensely -- my skin has softened considerably and lost it's dry, scratchy feeling.

The Total Effects Body Wash is thick and creamy and produces a wonderful, rich lather. I love that. It's luxurious and the fragrance is subtle and very pleasant!



From The Website:
Olay's most advanced body wash, Total Effects goes beyond cleansing to deeply moisturize and fight 7 signs of aging all over your body.

1.Improves elasticity
2.Relieves dryness
3.Deeply moisturizes
4.Brightens dull skin
5.Evens skin tone
6.Smoothes rough skin
7.Minimizes the appearance of dry lines


For soft, smooth skin in 1 shower, improved elasticity in 1 week, and young-looking, radiant skin in 1 month.

Let´s face it; we all want our skin to look as youthful as possible at any age. With so many moisturizing and anti-aging products available, knowing which one will really keep your skin looking and feeling its best may be overwhelming.

Luckily, the solution is easy with Olay Total Effects. New Olay Total Effects Body Wash - Deep Penetrating Moisture, one of the newest additions to the line, can help your skin look visibly younger with an appearance that´s more resilient to aging.

Olay´s most advanced body wash, Total Effects goes beyond cleansing to deeply moisturize and fight 7 signs of aging all over your body by helping to improve elasticity, relieve dryness, deeply moisturize, brighten dull skin, even skin tone, smooth rough skin, and minimize the appearance of dry lines.

My tip is always use a moisturizer w/spf15, drink water and walk as much as you can. Everyone needs exercise daily so walking is a good start.

My Mom actually taught me 2 things to keep looking younger:
1-stay out of sun and use sunscreen
2-when you wash your face (or other body part), use the wet washcloth as you are washing to gently scrub the skin - you will exfoliate (very naturally) the top layer and encourage your skin to make new, healthy layers... and it helps with wrinkles!

Marie said...

Drinking water and taking the time to wash your face each night...definitely two of the easiest ways to stay looking young!

Age is a state of mind. I have no desire to "stay young" However, if one wishes to age gracefully then adopting god habits fromthe youngest agepossible is helpful. Watch smoking and drinking. Stay as far away from the processed food stuffs. Drink plenty of water and wearing sunscreen all are helpful.
