New Skin Care line!

Well, I finally chose a new skincare line after weeks of researching and debating. [insert sigh of relief here] I really appreciate all of your advice on this and researched everything y'all suggested. I ended up going with the Oil of Olay regenerist line. They have live consultants to chat with on their website. I was kind of overwhelmed when I went to Target and things weren't really specified for certain skin types. So, I chatted with the lovely lady on the website who mapped a skin regime for me to use.

I use these products in the morning:

Oil of Olay regenerist UV regenerating lotion

At night, I use the same eye serum and these products:

While my face is soapy from the cleansing cloths, I use this Clarisonic skin care brush to exfoliate my skin and clean it. Then, rinse. Best investment ever. I give props to Shasta over at My Blonde Reality for selling me on this sweet machine=) I do not use their cleansers though.

Olay's micro-sculpting cream

And ladies, my skin does feel better than the other stuff I used to use. That maybe a combination of now using the brush and skincare, or it could just be this line is actually better than the "expensive" brand I used previously. Who knows? All I know is that I am satisfied. I waited til it had been a month of using the products before posting this review. No, I'm not being paid. Just wanted to share my happiness in finding a cheaper skin care line that A)doesn't break the bank and B) didn't make my skin freak out.

Btw, I just want to say a little thank you to True Beauty...Inside and Out. I won one of her 5 days of giveways. She's such a sweet person. She has been helpful any time I have emailed her about different skin care questions I'm sure I annoyed her, but she sure didn't show it!. If you haven't stopped over there before, go check her out. She's a darling!

My boss uses Oil of Olay and her skin is beautiful! Seriously, it's the most flawless skin ever. Good choice!

These are exactly the same kind of products that I use, and they work fabulously well :-) I don't see the need to spend lots of $$$ on other brands. I've used the expensive stuff in the past, and it just doesn't work as well. Glad you found something that you like!

I am glad you found a line that works for you! I have heard Olay is great!

Thanks for letting me know about this and I am glad it's working so well for you!! :)
