Introducing the All-New Olay Fresh Effects {+ $25 Walmart Gift Card Giveaway}

When I was younger, skincare was easy!  I rarely got blemishes and a little moisturizer was all my slightly dry skin needed to sparkle and glow.

Then, I got pregnant with my daughter.  My old skincare routine went right out the window.  My skin was no longer easy to care for.  It began reacting to the products I had used for years, and my face became a target for blemishes.

Since that time, I have experimented with many different cleansers and moisturizers.  I have found some that work okay, but nothing that I truly love.

Then, I discovered the all-new Fresh Effects line from Olay.  Talk about a breath of fresh air!  Fresh Effects is formulated to keep your skin fresh and sparkling, making you look and feel unstoppable.

A Fresh & Fab Vanity arrived at my doorstep, giving me the opportunity to check out each of the products in this exciting new line:

  • Va-Va-Vivid {Powered Contour Cleansing System}- treat yourself to an amazing micro-facial experience
  • Shine, Shine Go Away {Shine Minimizing Cleanser}- get rid of the shine with a deep-down-to-the-pores clean
  • Bead Me Up! {Exfoliating Cleanser}- foaming bubbles and exfoliating microbeads team up for a beautifully fresh look
  • S’Wipe Out {Makeup Removal Cloths}- lift away dirt and makeup– even waterproof mascara– in a flash
  • Long Live Moisture {Satin Finish Lotion}- keeps skin soft and smooth for up to 24 hours
  • BB Cream {Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer with Sunscreen}- get glowing, naturally even skin with all-in-one BB Cream

My favorite thing about the Fresh Effects line is that is easy to mix and match your favorite products to create the ideal skin regimen for you.

Let’s start with the first step– cleanse.  Fresh Effects offers four unique products to help keep your skin clean.  My personal skincare routine includes each of them.  S’Wipe Out is by far my favorite of the cleansing products.  I use it at night to wipe away my makeup and any grime that has collected on my face throughout the day.  Wow– is this little wipe powerful!  You would not believe how dirty my wipe is after cleansing.  It is truly no match for my makeup– even the mascara!

Shine, Shine Go Away is my go-to cleanser each day in the shower.  This cleanser gives me a deep clean without feeling dried out.  This is important to me, since I do have skin that tends to be on the dry side.  I like that it eliminates a lot of the shine as well.

Then we have Bead Me Up!.  I absolutely love this exfoliating cleanser.  Those microbeads provide an unbelievable clean feeling.  However, this deep clean is simply not something my skin likes each day.  So, I use it a few times a week to help exfoliate and remove any excess dry skin.  It feels incredible.

Va-Va-Vivid is my at-home pampering product.  I use this once a week to give my skin that truly invigorating clean.  I cannot begin to tell you how truly amazing this product makes my skin feel.  It’s amazing.

Then, it’s time to hydrate.  I have to apply moisturizer to my skin on a daily basis to help keep the dreaded dry skin away.  However, I know from experience that many moisturizers can make you feel weighted down.

That’s what I love about Long Live Moisture.  It leaves my skin feeling light– as if there is no moisturizer there at all!  I tend to apply the moisturizer each morning and it always lasts me throughout the day– no need to reapply!

If I know I will be spending a lot of time outdoors, I make sure to use the BB Cream.  This amazing product does so much.  Not only is it a hard working moisturizer, but it contains sunscreen as well.  I have pale skin and live near the coast, so sunscreen is a necessity for me.  I like that with one product I can keep my skin moisturized AND protected.

So, I am certain it is evident that I am truly a fan of the Fresh Effects line from Olay.  Each of these new products makes a fabulous addition to my skincare routine.

The Fresh Effects line is available at Walmart stores.
