Olay Total Effects and My Aging Face

How old have I been telling you guys I am? Well, whatever I may have claimed on my birthday, I am not as young as I used to be. I do think that I look a bit younger than my age still, at least when I have my make-up on. (Do you remember wearing make-up to look older? When did it change to wearing make-up to look younger?)

Anyway, however I may look from a distance, I have recently been noticing some distinct signs of aging on my 40-something face. My main age-related concerns are around my eye area. The dark circles and looser skin are probably inevitable for the hectic, sleep-deprived life of a mom. But I looked at a picture recently and saw (gasp!) wrinkles. Yes, I have reached the wrinkle stage, at least around my eyes. (Let's just say they are from all the joy and laughter in my life, shall we?) My other big issue is uneven skin tone & large pores. Other than when I am well-tanned in the summer, I always have worn foundation to cover this up, but foundation can be heavy, plus it's one more step in my necessarily stream-lined morning routine.

What's a girl to do? Enter Olay Total Effects!
Fight Seven Signs of Aging with Olay Total Effects

As a P&G Mom I was sent a package of Olay Total Effects skin care products to try out over the last little while. I will let you read the product descriptions below to get the full story on what each product can do for you. But I will tell you that I am very happy with the results I've been seeing. My morning routine now no longer involves foundation.

My now one-step process gives me a hint of foundation along with my daily moisturizer. This product doesn't feel heavy on my skin, doesn't look fake, and gives me just enough foundation to even out my skin tone beautifully and make my face look fresher and brighter. Love it! I'm also quite taken with the eye brush. A quick press of the button on the end of this slim tube dispenses just enough lightly tinted moisturizer to sweep over my dark circles and give an instant lift. Using this along with the correcting eye treatment I hope to get control of these fine lines and burgeoning wrinkles in the area as well! And of course no face care line would be complete without a night moisturizer and a facial cleanser/scrub. I have to admit that I am not really good at remembering to moisturize at night, but I am getting better!
