Olay Fresh Effects Goodies

Many moons ago, I got this goodies to play around with. I was excited mainly because it was a whole system, and because it looks so fresh and youthful.

Plus I needed new things to work with, even though I have a few things I already do love in my regimen and have no real desire in replacing.

But exploring is what I like doing, so I did.

First off is Dew Over. A moisturizer, I was immediately reminded of the Loreal Hydrafresh that I Was obsessed with a few years back. I loved the Loreal one because it was so light, kept my skin moisturized, and yet make me look great when I used a powder foundation over it. In a way, it also reminds me of Clinique’s Moisture Surge, another product that is part of my stash as of this moment. Basically they fact that it is so light makes it great for me to wear on really hot days, like the ones we are currently having in Toronto. It keeps my skin fresh, doesn’t dry it out, but doesn’t make me oily as soon as I put it on. It has a light scent to it, which I am luckily not bothered by.

Next up we have Bright on Schedule, which is a morning eye roller. What I loved about this was the fact that the roller balls provided a cooling massage. I actually stored mine in the fridge. Not sure if that would have hurt the ingredients, but luckily didn’t seem that way. I didn’t really notice it brightening my undereyes, but they helped to depuff on the nights I ate salty foods way later than was good for me, or the nights I just couldn’t get to sleep. It also played nicely with the products I used to do my face in the morning, not being a factor in making things slide off. Oh, I forgot to mention that it absorbs really quickly! But not in a, “my undereye area is still dry dude” kind of way.

Now comes the least two favourite products…

Out of this Swirled smells great. I love that it smelt so refreshing for the morning. But for something that is touted as a “deep pore clean“, I expected it to be a little more…but it erred on the more cautious side of exfoliation (unlike its brother As Fresh As New, which comes up next). However, if you are the type of person who doesn’t need excessive exfoliation, and yet forget to stick to the twice a week suggested maximum of most scrubs, this is a good alternative as you could use it everyday. It is a tad heavier than just mixing in baking soda in to your favourite scrub, but it is not on the same level as St Ives Apricot Scrub either.

Lastly we have As Fresh As New. Now the reason why I didn’t like this as much, as because the exfoliating side of the wipe was way too rough for me. Basically you exfoliate with one side, and then wipe clean with the softer/other side. I also personally found them a little on the dry side. Basically because I do use foundation, if this was all that I had to rely on, one was not enough, as it would dry up before I could remove everything. So if you wear more makeup, then this might not be for you. If you feel that you need extra exfoliation, this might be something to consider, but use a gentle hand, as you should with all exfoliators.

 

I’ve already mentioned before that I like the Long Live Moisture Satin Finish Lotion, but it is much lighter than Dew Over in terms of application (Long Live Moisture is more like a dry lotion, moisturizes, but is satin smooth upon application). Dew Over gives up a more (at the lack of words) dewy look to the skin, making it seem as I refreshed it with a spritz of water. So though I am making my way through Dew Over still, it would be one that I would consider buying again. That is the same for Bright on Schedule as well. It didn’t help with darkness in the under eye area, but I mean the Aveeno one didn’t either. Plus this is more affordable in comparison to the Aveeno one that I tried out. So though I liked the Aveeno one, the fact that Dew Over is more my price range basically tells me that that is a product I need to consider rebuying in the future.

Have you tried out the line? Anything catch your eye?
