Olay Moisturizers with SolaSheer Technology Perfect for the Spring and Summer!

SPF 30 Out of Package  0007509002786 Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer SPF 15 1.7 OZ

We all have daily rituals that we practice before leaving the house for the day. We ask ourselves if we remembered to turn our curling iron off and whether or not we tossed our keys, wallet, and phone into our purse. But what we often forget to ask ourselves is if we remembered to apply SPF.


Since 80% of UV exposure is a result of incidental sun exposure, like walking to work or driving in your car, it is important to incorporate SPF into your daily routine. This season, Olay arms you with the tools you need to make that task easier than ever. A number of Olay’s daily moisturizers with SPF are now formulated with SolaSheer Technology, which combines broad spectrum SPF protection with proven moisturizing agents. The result is nourished, moisturized skin, protected against harmful UVA/UVB rays.

  • ·         Total Effects Daily Moisturizer + SPF 15 with SolaSheer Technology
  • ·         Complete All Day Moisturizer SPF 15 with SolaSheer Technology

I received samples of these products and I love that all the products are Formulated with SolaSheer Technology! Besides, that the Olay Complete all day moisturizer with sunscreen feels so good on my skin! It is oil-free and I can just use this every day! It never feels greasy on my skin and provides long lasting hydration. My skin actually does look healthier after using these products. I also like that the Olay Total effects 7 In One is an anti-aging moisturizer and is now available in Broad Spectrum SPF 30. For more information, check out the Olay website.

“Many people are surprised to learn that preventable injuries are the number one killer of kids in the United States,” said Kate Carr, president and CEO of Safe Kids Worldwide. “We don’t want any parent to have to endure the loss of a child. We’re honored to be supported by our celebrity heroes and sponsors, who are so dedicated to helping us reach our goal of preventing injuries and saving lives.”


Every year, a million families around the world lose a child to a preventable injury. Millions more children are injured in ways that can affect them for a lifetime. Too many families don’t have access to the information they need to keep their children safe from tragedies such as drowning, car crashes, fires and falls. Safe Kids Worldwide provides resources to families and communities to protect children.


The 2014 Safe Kids Day campaign fundraising goal is $1 million. Proceeds from Safe Kids Day support local, state and national injury prevention efforts of Safe Kids Worldwide. Safe Kids Day is presented by Children’s TYLENOL® with support from the General Motors Foundation, FedEx, Johnson & Johnson, American Airlines, Tyco and others.

The Kid Who Went To The Moon By: Walter Levin

Book Cover

James Gibson is 12 years old and only needs $2 million to convince NASA to let him go to the moon. It’s not a regular thing for a kid to get $2 million. But James is no ordinary kid. Follow his adventure … from getting his weekly swirly in the school toilet from the neighborhood bully … all the way into outer space … in this exciting new novel, The Kid Who Went To The Moon.

“I’m so impressed with the imagination and storytelling ability of this young man! His tale would make a perfect Phineas & Ferb adventure! If we’re still around in a few years I’d happily give him a job, (Heck, let’s be honest, I’ll probably be asking him for a job).”
—Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, Co-creator of Phineas & Ferb

We received this book to review/feature and loved it! It is funny, imaginative and I am simply amazed that the Author is only 11 years old! My 10-year old son also enjoyed it and thought it was very creative and he loved the character James Gibson and his adventure to Space. “Kids will also be able to relate to this modern-day character,” my son Joshua adds. We can’t wait to read the next book by Walter Levin!
