I have my makeup routine down to a science. If Chris is waiting on me to get ready so we can head out somewhere, all he needs to do is see what makeup step I’m on to know exactly how long it’s going to take me to finish.
That said, using a moisturizer is generally NOT part of my routine; simply because I’m allergic to most of them and the ones that I’m not allergic to always come in those tub type containers, and as I’ve mentioned, I can’t stand those. I don’t like getting the stuff under my nails, especially any kind of lotion.
When I was given the opportunity to try out the new Olay Total Effects Cooling Hydration moisturizer I was pretty excited because my skin NEEDS it! My skin tends to be on the dry side anyway (something I’ve never understood because I drink a TON of water!) but when I’m pregnant it’s a nightmare! It’s so beyond dry that it’s not even funny…it gets to the point where I’ll even get red marks on my cheeks from it being so dry, and when you are as pale as I am, it really stands out!
So, I’ve been using the Olay Total Effects Cooling Hydration for awhile now – applying it first underneath my makeup, and I am really noticing a difference! My favorite thing is how gentle it is on my sensitive skin. I can really feel and see a difference in the dryness and texture of my skin. Another great feature is that it isn’t greasy! I hate when moisturizers are greasy and you can feel it on your skin all day long. This product absorbs almost immediately, and then I put my makeup on and I don’t even notice it the rest of the day – but it’s still working!
Feel like your moisturizer’s fresh feeling can’t last all day? New Olay Total Effects Cooling Hydration instantly cools and leaves skin with a moisturized fresh feeling that lasts from morning to night. The lightweight formula also fights 7 signs of aging for younger looking skin.
