Olay Fresh Effects- Finally a Face wash for Grown ups #PGMom

I am that mom

That mom who uses her teens products. I buy my kids face wash and am guilty of using it for myself. Problem is, it is not for my skin. It dries my skin out and I really do not like it. However it does the job in a quick fix.

I do not have acne like my teens. I do however have ever changing skin. I do get hormonal pimples and stress induced blemishes. I also find certain things I eat will create problems for my skin. Then there is makeup. Sigh, I may be guilty of going to bed without removing it more often than not. Oops. 

I have looked for products for my own skin and have not had any luck. I do not have signs of aging so many “grown up” products  just are not for me. I also find because many are for wrinkles, they are too oily for me. The price is usually really more than I want to spend as well. 

Recently P&G sent me a box of items to try out. In the box was a new line from Olay. Olay Fresh Effects to be exact. The colour on the packaging even looked fresh. I knew I had to try it out.

I have been using this and really like it. I even used the little brush that vibrates. My sensitive skin had no reactions and cleaned up perfectly. I really an happy to have found a line geared to me, a woman in my mid 30’s 🙂 Now I do not need to use my kids face products and I can actually afford this . 

Check out the line here and see for yourself.
