Spring Must-Have’s from Olay!

Skin care is something I take rather seriously and Olay is a favorite of mine! Here are two of my new favorites this Spring!

The Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream with SPF 30 is a must-have because it really leaves my skin soft and it also has SPF 30! I have been using it for a few weeks now and I have noticed improvement in my skin texture. It is also supposed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles so that is always a good thing! I love how my skin feels smoother and more hydrated and daily SPF protection is important to me.

Retails for $25.99 – $33.99.

The Total Effects Eye Brightening CC Cream is another go-to beauty product for me! This one brightens the under-eye area with instant skin-perfecting coverage and correction. I love how lightweight this product is and that it provides sheer coverage. I just love how it feels on my skin! It really moisturizes around the eye area and I have noticed improvement in how my skin looks under my eyes.

Retails for $19.99 – $21.99.

Look for these products online and at local stores where Olay products are sold.
