Spring Collections 2013
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!
Flower by Drew Barrymore is getting its fair share of media this month. I picked up the Flower Win Some, Rouge Some Creme Blush on Walmart’s site recently and decided to give it a try over the last few days.
The new Flower Makeup Collection is quite a range of products with a nice budget price. I was a little worried going into my purchases as I didn’t expect it to win my attention by wow, I was impressed.
I’m quite excited about the new Bath & Body Works America’s Sweethearts Spring 2013 fragrances. I took a brief sniff of these when I was at Bath & Body Works several days ago and I have a feeling I’ll be picking this up.
I love sweet fragrances so these def appeal however, I gotta admit, they do smell like some scent or another that Bath & Body Works put out before but I just can’t figure out exactly what fragrance they are like.
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.
It’s ok if you absolutely have to have the new It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Lipstick Butter Trio. Run to your TV they are prob just popping up on QVC at the moment during the New Year, New You showing.
I played around with them last night and will review them shortly and so far I am in love.
