Product Review: Olay Fresh Effects

Olay has a great reputation as a company on the cutting edge of beauty product development. I have never had a problem with their products and have had sensitive skin in the past. They, once again, have come out with a whole new fun line of products called Olay Fresh Effects. They graciously sent me some of the products to test out. The coolest thing was the packaging they used to send it to me!! (see pics) It was all cardboard and it was in a relatively small box considering how huge it was when I opened it all up. Very fun and creative, Olay! 

Here's some info on their new product line:

  • Treating yourself to a micro-facial has never been easier, with Olay Fresh Effects products!
  • The new Olay Fresh Effects products will leave your skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated:
    • Va-Va-Vivid!- Powered Contour Cleansing System: This powerful brush with super-soft, supple bristles gently massages your skin for a healthy-looking glow and a full-face cleansing.
    • Shine, Shine Go Away!- Shine Minimizing Cleanser: This cleanser has all the purifying power of a mask, but lathers and rinses like a daily cleanser to remove 2X more dirt, oil, and make-up than basic cleansing.
    • Bead Me Up!- Exfoliating Cleanser: Foaming bubbles and exfoliating microbeads come together to gently purify and lift away dirt, while softly scrubbing your skin for a beautifully fresh, healthy look.
    • S’Wipe Out!- Refreshing Make-up Removal Cloths: These special pre-moistened cloths are covered in cottony-soft cleansing pockets  to lift away dirt and makeup – even waterproof mascara – in a flash.
    • Long Live Moisture!- Satin Finish Lotion: Lose the shine and get satiny active moisturizers keeping your skin soft and smooth for up to 24-hours!
    • BB Cream!- Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer with Sunscreen: An all-in-one solution for instantly brighter-looking, smoother-feeling, more even skin tone.

If you've had an opportunity to try the new products, which of the Olay Fresh Effects products is your favorite and how does it fit into your daily beauty routine?

Book Review: God Gave Us Easter

This is an absolutely precious book by the same author, Lisa Tawn Bergren, who brought us God Gave Us Christmas and lots of other "God Gave Us..." titles. I read it right away with the kids and they loved the story of the little polar bear and her dad trekking through the forest as they learned all about Easter. Very, very good read. It takes a hard to understand concept like Easter and explains it very well.

This book was provided to me by Waterbrook Multnomah's Blogging for Books program in exchange for my honest review.

Audio Book Review: Les Miserables

I haven't seen the movie, Les Miserables, yet...not sure if I will as I am not a huge fan of musicals, but we shall see.  I do, however, enjoy audio books and these days it is much easier to get through an audio book than a regular book. Plus, this radio drama version is only 4 hours long. I have never read the real book, so I don't know if this abridged version leaves anything to be desired, but it was definitely entertaining and interesting. It's produced by the same people who produce Focus on the Family radio theater so it is definitely family friendly radio.

This audio book was provided to me by Tyndale Blog Network in exchange for my honest review.
