Occasionally comical products pass by my desk and Covergirl + Olay Eye Rehab 2 in 1 Concealer is one of those products. Seriously, this is a product that makes me laugh, shake my head, and ask “Why!?”
At first I was quite excited about this. It was a concealer with a hydrating serum built right in! It comes in a small pump style bottle with a helix design that shows the concealer swirled with a creamy serum. The idea and concept seemed great.
So why was it so funny?
Spring always seems like a good time to sort through your old skincare especially January when you’re possibly making a beauty resolution to take better care of your skin.
I know personally I try really hard to ditch the skincare I am currently using and replace it with something new I’d like to try or an old favorite as typically at this point it is nearing a year old. I tend to get anal about skincare and label the back of jars with the date I purchased the product. This is a handy way to know when it’s time for that product to be swept away and replaced. Label makers are so cheap at Staples and I promise it isn’t terribly Sheldon Cooper of you to label makeup or skincare products as a gentle reminder that it is indeed time to toss something out.
Here are several new skincare products that you might want to check out!
Olay recently launched the new Fresh Effects Skincare and with that collection they released a new moisturizer entitled Long Live Moisture! Satin Finish Lotion.
This is a lightweight, soft, satiny lotion that would best be suited for oily or combination skin types. Although drier skin might get a kick out of during the warmer weather!
Have a look!
The new Olay Fresh Effects Va-Va-Vivid Powered Contour Cleansing System is a new $14.99 cleansing system that was created to for hard to reach areas like your nose.
This is specially design to work with your T-Zone and comes with the new Olay Fresh Effects Shine, Shine Go Away Shine Minimizing Cleanser.
Let’s take a look!
Olay Fresh Effects Bead Me Up! Exfoliating Cleanser is a new gentle exfoliating cleaner introduced for Spring 2013. I think the Fresh Effects Collection is Olay’s attempt to garner the attention of a younger generation of beauty users. The packaging and the products just seem to have a “fun” take on skincare compared to Olay’s more mature range of anti-aging products.
I’m all about fun and fresh so I did pick this up to try out.
Let’s take a look!
Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer with Sunscreen…PHEW what a mouthful! Say it fast three times. Olay covers all bases here, BB Cream, Tinted Moisturizer…so they market it as both which automatically sets off warning bells in my head.
BB Cream is NOT a tinted moisturizer. The US has not caught on to this fact as of yet and has gone ahead and decided that marketing BB Creams as a tinted moisturizer is A SUPER idea….and everyone should be happy about it.
Ok, I won’t rant anymore.
But facts is facts combing BB Cream and Tinted Moisturizer into the name is confusing for consumers. If you’ve never tried BB Cream before and proceed to purchase Olay Fresh Effects you’ll automatically assume this is what a BB Cream is and that’s just not what this is.
