Win $50 from Olay & BlogHer!!!

As most of you know I turned the dreaded 30 last year, and in a few months I’ll take one more step towards “middle age”.  Ugh….did I just say that? 

Like most women I have concerns about my skin.  When I look in the mirror I see tiny lines starting to appear. Sun spots have started to make their appearance known.  I’m more self-conscious about my skin now than I ever have been.  I always try and take steps to protect my skin from the sun and environment. 

I want to tell you all about a great product I started using.  It’s called Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting Moisturizer.  I have very sensitive skin and freckle from the sun easily.  The first thing I noticed was that the moisturizer minimized the appearance of my freckles and sun spots. 

Unlike most moisturizers I’ve used, my skin felt refreshed and maintained moisture for an extended amount of time throughout the day.  I’ve used products in the past and my skin just absorbs it, sucks it up, and gets dry all over again!  Not with Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting Moisturizer.  I felt a refreshing glow throughout the day. 

Whenever I am looking for facial moisturizer I look for two key things: prevents signs of aging & protection from the sun.  Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting Moisturizer provides both of these, plus it’s tinted.  There are days I don’t feel like putting on a full face of makeup, but I still want to look decent if I need to get out of the house.  With one pump I get the perfect amount of glowing moisturizer. It goes on light and non-greasy, which is also a plus in my book!  I feel at ease knowing I’ve done something good for my skin and I look great too!  I hope you’ll give it a try and remember it’s never too early to start protecting your skin.

  1. I give up a little TV time to take a shower and do my daily routines at night. I also get up a little bit earlier to start my morning & care for my skin!

  2. I have been moisturizing my face everyday since my teens.
    I wash my face and moisturize at night no matter what.
    I go for regular facials to keep my skin fresh.
    I go to the dermatologist whenever I have to.
    I use moisturizer with SPF every day.

  3. I put lotion on right after I get out of the shower and I put on a moisturizer with sunscreen everyday…and I don’t wear makeup which saves a lot of time.

  4. My morning beauty routine is quite a rush. I try to save time on my skin care routine by choosing products that have dual/multiple functions. Such as SPF-ed moisturizer or moisturized body wash, etc. The Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer sounds amazing and I need to give it a try! Thanks for the detailed review!

  5. I have a simple routine so it’s easy to find time for it, I just wash and lotion, and always use a moisturizer with spf15+. Thanks for the review and giveaway.

  6. To have more time for skincare, after washing my face, I apply other products while at the computer at home. Peel wipes, serums, masks, I’ve done them all while reading email, etc.


  7. I thought freckles on my cheeks were cute as a kid, but now that I’m older, realize that the freckles are gone and I have age spots. I like using multi-benfit products to speed my regime for skin care. If my moisturizer has SPF, I skip the sunscreen unless spending hours in the sun on an outing for sports or picnics.

  8. One thing I do to save time is apply a mask 2 or 3 times a week first thing in the morning. Then it has time to work and dry while I make coffee, get clothes ready, etc. By the time I take my shower, I just wash it off in the shower and my skin feels so soft!

  9. I heavy moisturize at night before bed. A lot of times I use my Biore pore strips while I’m blow-drying my hair and I always use a daytime moisturizer with sunscreen.

  10. I’ve been doing a pore cleansing face mask lately. I put it on before I clean the bathroom, then I wash it off in the shower after. I’ve found it to be a great timesaver!

  11. I keep Olay cleaning clothes on my bed nightstand so I never miss cleansing my face even on nights when I’m so tired. I also have some sample size moisturizers I keep beside bed as well to hydrate the face too.

  12. simply ensuring i wash my face every night instead of going to bed with make up on is a bonus for me!! =) also, drinking water!! thx!

  13. I wash my face in the morning with a scrub and then use my MIA at night with a cleanser in order to make sure all my makeup is gone! Would love to try this OLAY product!

  14. I recently switched to handmade soap for the face and it’s made a huge difference. I try to use sunblock 365 days a year – been doing that since I was a tween!

  15. I use products on my skin, and always take the time to wash and tone my face before bed to remove makeup and the day’s dirt

  16. I carve out time by taking a few minutes before bed to cleanse my skin properly and remove makeup and dirt.

  17. I wash my face and moisturize twice a day to keep the pimples at bay. And I always look for products that get the job done fastest! Two-in-one products are my friend!

  18. Keep makeup removal wipes, toner and moisturizer near your computer. You can do skincare while you read email and surf.


  19. I take out time for my skin every time I shower! I love using sugar and salt scrubs on my body to really make my skin soft and shiny! I look for natural ingredients in my
    moisturizers like shea butter and essential oils.

  20. I carve out time to take care of my skin by applying moisturizer with sunscreen follow by foundation in the morning. From your detailed review I need to try the Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting UV Moisturizer, it’s amazing!


  21. Cleanse and moisturize at night before bed. Mornings are hectic and just remembering to use sunscreen is hard enough.
