Olay Anti-Wrinkle Nature Fusion Anti-Ageing Day Fluid

Hi there! I’m still working my way through Olay’s beauty assortment. Whilst I have found my favourite moisturiser, I can’t stop trying all of Olay’s offerings. ūüôā So for the past week I have used Olay Anti-Wrinkle Nature Fusion Anti-Ageing Day Fluid (What a name!) and I’m ready to review the product.

Let me tell you right away that this moisturiser is nice enough, but it will not become one of my beauty staples. My husband seems to like it though! If you read on, I’ll tell you why it’s not perfect for me, but why my husband is quite fond of it.
Olay Nature Fusion
This Olay Nature Fusion Day Fluid is a light moisturiser with SPF. I think it’s great for summer because it doesn’t clog pores, and it will please ladies with normal or oily skin because the formula is not too rich. The clean and green scent highlights the ‘nature’ theme of this product.

However, I’ve got dry skin and I think this day fluid is simply not enough for my skin-type. I also prefer ‘yellow’ scents, so the leafy green scent of this moisturiser is not my favourite. Whilst I won’t be buying this product for myself again, my husband likes to use it on his face because…

… he has rather oily skin and this moisturiser is perfect for him because it doesn’t give his face an oily shine. He also likes the green scent because it’s rather unisex. And he is happy that this moisturiser contains SPF, so he doesn’t have to worry about the sun burning his pale skin.

In summary, this moisturiser is not for me, but I’m glad that my husband not only uses it because someone has to, but because he really likes the product. If you would like to try Olay Anti-Wrinkle Nature Fusion Anti-Ageing Day Fluid, the 100 ml bottle is ¬£10, but there is always a half price or BOGOF offer somewhere.

Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm & Lift Eye Renewal Gel

Hi there! Here’s another Olay post; this time I’m reviewing Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm & Lift Eye Renewal Gel. This product targets wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness and it claims to give you a ‘firmer looking eye contour in 21 days. So does it work? I’ve been using this eye gel for a few weeks now, and I’m not only happy with it, I’m blown away. If you read on, I’ll tell you why.
Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm and Lift Eye Renewal Gel
Thanks to Olay I haven’t had any real wrinkles to begin with. However, I have noticed a few lines which resulted from a recurring angioedema which I battled a couple of months ago. At first I thought it would take months go get rid of these lines, but at some point I realised I would have to make peace with them.

But after using this eye gel twice a day – morning and night – for ten days, the lines disappeared. Completely. I can’t believe how easy it actually was – all it took was the right product from my favourite skin care brand. I couldn’t be happier!

I’ve also noticed that my dark circles have improved a lot in the past few weeks. All my life I’ve had dark circles and I didn’t think anything could be done. However,¬† this eye gel helped a lot. I can’t tell you exactly how much the dark circles have improved, but I wouldn’t even call them dark circles anymore. The skin under my eyes is still a bit darker than the rest of my face, but it’s no longer a purplish grey area that needs lots of concealer. Again, I couldn’t be happier!

If you look for an effective, yet affordable anti-wrinkle eye product, look no further! Seriously, I cannot recommend¬†Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm & Lift Eye Renewal Gel enough. The 15 ml tub (which will last you for several months even if you use the product twice daily) is usually ¬£10, but there’s always a BOGOF or half price offer at some drugstore or supermarket. (At the time I’m writing this post, this eye gel is ¬£5 at Wilko’s and ¬£4.95 at Superdrug’s.)

Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm & Lift Day Lotion

Hi there! I’ve already done a couple of posts about Olay products recently – and I’ll be doing a lot more. ūüôā I’m a real Olay nut and I’m currently testing several different products. I know I’ll always return to the incredible Complete Care Day Fluid, but that doesn’t stop me from trying different moisturisers in between.

At the moment I’m using Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm & Lift Day Lotion. I’m quite impressed with the product because it’s similar to my favourite Complete Care moisturiser, and I can see that it might become one of my beauty staples.

And here’s why: I love the formula and the scent of this moisturiser. It smells wonderfully sunny and optimistic and it moisturises my skin very well without leaving a greasy film behind. It’s also perfect under make-up because it’s easy to apply and it doesn’t sit on the skin. I cannot comment on its wrinkle-smoothing qualities because – thanks to Olay – I don’t have wrinkles, but that goes to show that Olay’s products really work.

What can I say other than… you need to try this moisturiser if you haven’t already. I cannot recommend it enough. Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm & Lift Day Lotion is available as 100 ml for ¬£10. However, there’s always a half price offer somewhere, so you can buy this gorgeous moisturiser for ¬£5!

Olay Essentials Facial Cleansing Products

My first post is about my favourite face cleansing products – Olay Essentials. From left to right: Olay Essentials Smoothing Face Scrub, Olay Essentials Refreshing Toner, Olay Essentials Refreshing Face Wash and Olay Essentials Cleansing Milk.

What I like about these products is that…
*they’re excellent value for money,
*they’re perfect for daily use,
*they’re suitable for dry and sensitive skin and
*they smell nice and clean.
So let’s get started, shall we?

Olay Essentials Smoothing Face Scrub is one of my favourites. This face scrub is a gentle exfoliator, so it can be used daily. I have dry and sensitive skin and I’m really pleased with this product because it does not sting or burn and it doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight or dry. I use it 2 to 3 times a week in the shower and I really enjoy how soft and clean my skin feels after each use.

When I don’t use the face scrub, I cleanse my face with Olay Essentials Refreshing Face Wash in the shower. A pea-sized amount is enough to get rid of grease and grime – even around the nose. The face wash is really powerful, yet it feels gentle, refreshing and doesn’t cause redness or dry skin. This is my favourite face wash. Thumbs up!
Olay Essentials
Olay Essentials Cleansing Milk is my go-to make-up remover when my skin needs a little extra care and attention. I massage the milky cleanser into my skin to dissolve make-up before washing it off. This cleansing milk moisturises the skin whilst it’s being applied, thus preventing redness or irritation. A real super star product that doesn’t aggrevate dry or sensitive skin.

Whatever cleanser I use, I usually give my face a quick wipe with Olay Essentials Refreshing Toner before I apply my moisturiser. This toner is powerful in removing excess oils and all kinds of residue from make-up or cleansing products. However, this toner is also alcohol-free. This means that it’s rather gentle and, again, most suitable for dry or sensitive skin.

If you have normal, dry or sensitive skin, Olay Essentials is the product range for you. In the past my skin has reacted pretty severely to a few other products, but I haven’t had any problems with these affordable cleansers at all.

The face scrub and the face wash are available as 150ml, while the cleansing milk and the toner come in 200ml bottles. All these products are usually around ¬£3, but there’s always some kind of special offer somewhere.
