I’m sure I’m not alone when I say I was a little, um, self-indulgent over the holidays. Okay, so maybe a lot. And while the holidays are now a distant memory, I’ve been in a bit of a holiday mindset ever since.
It’s tempting to want to keep those good vibes flowing, and with the cold weather we’ve had and all the snow days, it’s all too easy to give in to the desire to hibernate and continue those self-indulgent patterns we developed during the holidays.
Not only did I slack off on my exercise routine and my clean eating diet, but I also slacked off a bit on my skincare routine. I can see it and I can feel it. For one thing, my makeup hasn’t been going on as well. I’ve been noticing some flakiness during the day, and my skin’s texture isn’t as smooth as it is when I’m being diligent about my skincare routine.
Just in the nick of time, Olay invited me to partner with them for a 3-Step Reset to get my skin back into shape using 3 of my favorite Olay products:
- Olay Daily Facials: This 5-in-1 cleansing cloth does so much more than clean
- Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Moisturizer with SPF15: An advanced moisturizing formula for healthier-looking skin
- Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel: This cooling, fast absorbing gel instantly hydrates and plumps the under-eye area
You may remember me sharing about the Olay Daily Facials last spring. These are so much more than makeup remover wipes; they actually remove makeup, cleanse, exfoliate, AND hydrate — all in one little cloth. By combining all of these products in one, it makes makeup removal super fast and easy.
In the past, I’ve only used makeup remover wipes as a last resort — when I’m up too late, overtired, or traveling. But Olay Daily Facials are different because they have a special texture that lifts away all the oil and makeup, and best of all, they don’t leave any residue.
These are seriously the first makeup remover wipes I’ve ever used that get my face truly clean. I’ve tested them by using toner afterwards, and there is no leftover makeup on the cotton ball like there is when I use other makeup remover wipes.
But the really cool thing about these Daily Facials cleansing cloths is they’re water-activated so you can throw a stack into a zip top baggie for travel and there’s no concern about them leaking, and they’re super lightweight too.
When you’re ready to wash your face, you just take one, unfold it, and wet it under warm running water. I like to rub it a bit in my hands to get it sudsy, and then I gently rub over my face as you normally would to remove your makeup. Then I rinse the cloth, ring it out, and use it to wipe off the remaining lather and makeup. And that’s IT.
After I cleanse my face, I’m using Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Moisturizer with SPF15 every morning. I admit, I had become lax about this.
I was consistent during the 28-Day Challenge last fall, but during the holidays, I got out of the habit. There are some mornings I don’t even wash my face, to say nothing of use moisturizer — especially the days that I don’t wear makeup. I KNOW. It’s so bad for my skin. No wonder it’s been feeling dry and rough. But I’m getting back on the bandwagon with this 3-Step Reset.
The great thing about this moisturizer is it provides 7 skin benefits in one product to replenish moisture and immediately boost hydration for visibly healthier skin. So easy!
The third step in the 3-Step Reset is the Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel that I’ve shared about before. This eye gel both soothes and hydrates with a combination of witch hazel, vitamin B5, hyaluronic acid, and cucumber extract. I particularly like how quickly this eye gel absorbs, and the cooling formula feels so nice going on — especially in the morning when my eyes tend to be puffy.
Basically, Olay’s trio of powerhouse products makes it easier than ever to get your skin back into shape after a season of indulgence, and I’m all in.
