Fast, easy and effective should be the motto of every busy woman’s daily beauty routine. Starting my mornings at 5:30am means I have little time to fuss about and I need products which can handle the weekday rush. Luckily P&G Canada answered the call with a box of spring goodies at my door and these three have been the most loved so far.
Now my second favourite is a real trip down memory lane and just the mere scent of the Olay Complete Moisturizer* reminds me of being a pre-teen and my mother letting me sneak some of her lotion from the nightstand. In fact to this day, my grandma still insists on using her Olay creme (in it’s various incarnations). The light weight lotion consistency feels comfortable on the skin yet provides me enough juice to keep my skin hydrated in the spring weather. While this does have SPF15, I don’t wear this on an everyday basis as I can be reactive to avobenzone (its chemical sunscreen ingredient) but I do sneak this on a few time a week. For those who don’t have such issues and want something affordable and dependable, this long loved formula remains a great pick.
To get a little coverage on my face during lazy weekends, I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the new Covergirl Clean Matte BB Cream*. It’s made for oily skin but I found the light non-powdery finish really easy to work with despite my aversion to the word matte. With medium coverage that doesn’t sink into fine lines or pores, I’ve been using this with a beauty blender on slightly moist skin and the result is so fresh and pretty! In fact, after initially trying my pr sample, I was so smitten with it that I went out a few days later to hunt down a lighter shade as the original was just a smidgen off. And while I haven’t had time to photograph a full review post, expect to see this make a reappearance very soon either here or in a Youtube video.
