So let's dive right in, shall we?
First we have Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream. This lovely little cream is supposed to be used morning and night to fade the look of dark spots and reveal brighter skin that glows. Olay suggests using this for 8 weeks to see results, and since I have only used it a handful of times I cannot really report on any visible changes yet. I can say that this stuff smells good, and it's slightly orange. So if you like your products to be all natural, free of dyes and perfume or if your skin is extremely sensitive this is definitely not for you. This cream is on the heavy side so I might also stay away if you have super oily skin. That being said I think this will be wonderful during those cold months when I can't seem to get rid of the dry patches on my face that inevitably pop up when the temperature drops and the wind starts whipping around.
Tide to Go is perfect for all of you clumsy eaters out there like myself. I literally cannot eat or drink a single thing without spilling at least a little of it on myself. I am already a fan of this little pen so I was happy to receive another one. Throw this in your purse, car, briefcase, desk, anywhere to remove those stains before they set in, and in order to avoid embarrassment (I know I'm not the only one that has spilled something on my shirt directly on my nipple).
Riley and Grey is a wedding website company that gave us a code for 50% off a website. Lovely for soon-to-be tied couples, unfortunately I am not one of those so I had no use for it.
Next up is the Pure Silk shave cream, not a whole lot to elaborate on here, you use it to shave! This lathers nicely and does help to give a cleaner shave and smoother legs. I tried to use this on other areas of my body and it didn't work as well so I would say stick to the legs for best results.
Last but not least, Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure nail polish in the shade Barracuda, because we have to have something blue! This is a truly beautiful pastel shade, which I'm really digging for this summer. I've been going to opposite ends of the color spectrum with my polish lately, either rocking pastels or bright ass neons. Anyway, I just tried this shade last night and I was slightly disappointed. I have three other shades from the complete salon manicure collection and they're pretty nice. This one however I found more difficult to apply and it took three coats to completely cover. The brush is unlike any I have used before, it's more rounded at the tip which makes it harder to create a straight line at the base. The first coat applies too streaky for my taste and it's hard to get a good, even coat.
Thanks for reading, hopefully I will be able to do more posts like these in the future!
