It’s almost Spring! I am ready to leave the cold Winter behind! Here are some of my favorite beauty products for the Spring!

I love the Olay Body Wash! My favorite is the Olay fresh outlast purifying birch water & lavender Body Wash! I love the fragrance and that it doesn’t dry out my skin! It actually leaves my skin feeling softer! I also like the Olay ultra moisture shea butter Body Wash. This one also leaves my skin feeling softer!

The next two products are beauty must-buys for your face!

I am a big fan of the Olay Luminous product line up and the Olay Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream is one of my all time favorites! I love that it hydrates and evens my sin tone. I noticed a different in just a couple of months! It even fades the look of dark spots! I highly recommend! The Olay Luminous Miracle Boost Concentrate is a must! This one is used before you use a moisturizer and also reduces the appearance of dark spots and uneven skin tone. I noticed a difference in less than a month!

The Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream and  Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Concentrate are also favorites of mine! These are great anti-aging products! They may not actually remove wrinkles but they do make them less noticeable! My skin also feels softer and firmer!

Total Effects Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 15

And for my ultimate favorite Beauty Must for the upcoming Spring? Olay Total Effects Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 15! I love that this one has sunscreen and it does not feel greasy on my skin! It also absorbs quickly in my skin and lightens up dark spots! If I had to choose only one of these amazing products, this would be the one I would choose! I love that it is fragrance free and can be used under makeup!

As SeaWorld San Diego continues its transformation into the world’s next generation sea-life experience, the park will now be offering guests an intimate, individualized killer whale encounter never before provided in its 53-year history, featuring the orcas and the behaviorists who care for them.

Beginning March 18 and running for nine weeks only, guests will have unprecedented access to the earth’s most majestic creatures at All Day Orca Play, a full day of events and activities delivering exclusive encounters with killer whales.

As the park continues preparing for its long-awaited new Orca Encounter debuting this summer, All Day Orca Play will provide a non-stop series of events and programs showcasing the park’s beloved killer whales for the next two months. This new all-day, everyday experience will include introducing guests to each whale and their unique personalities; live chats with orca behaviorists and educators; an in-depth look at SeaWorld’s killer whale family and their behaviorists; and comprehensive insider knowledge about the park’s killer whales.

These live behaviorist talks, up-close killer whale training presentations and exclusive videos will provide guests an unparalleled, behind-the-scenes glimpse into SeaWorld’s killer whale family.

We are thrilled to offer guests this unique, unmatched and uninterrupted experience with killer whales,” said SeaWorld San Diego’s park president, Marilyn Hannes. “Our hope is that these extraordinary hour-by-hour encounters with our orcas will inspire our guests to protect wildlife and wild places.”

SeaWorld remains committed to protecting killer whales in the wild and has committed $1.5 million to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) through the Killer Whale Research and Conservation Program (KWRCP).  Support for the KWRCP is part of SeaWorld’s $10 million pledge to fund research and conservation for killer whales in the wild – the largest private commitment of its kind.
