Now that I am getting a little older and starting to look a little more mature, skin wise that is, I decided to try the Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex cream. As I am a big Olay fan I was more than happy to try this product and I think I have nearly worked my way through the whole range now. Olay heaven!
First of all, I love the way this product looks. Love the bright red lid and love that the top is a large pump to get your cream out. To use this cream is simple, you smooth it over your face and neck focusing on your personal areas of wrinkles. I of course put it all over my face and neck. I am not a light cream applier!
I currently do not use any other wrinkle cream to compare it to. I don't know if a more expensive item works better or not, but what I can tell you is that if you have a limited budget, like me, to spend on beauty products then I would recommend this product.
It is affordable, feels nice and smooth to apply, it smells nice but is not too overpowering. It is a little thicker than my normal moisturiser but I don't know if I could say it actually helps with wrinkles. I did feel as if my skin was a little tighter after applying it but my wrinkles around my eyes seemed to be the same after testing it out. Having said that I like the product and would think more about purchasing it in the next 5 years as my wrinkles start to need a little more attention. You can read more about the product on the Olay website.
I also recently tested out some Garnier Fructis Instant Detangler products.
I was sent the new Nurti-Repair Double Care for dry, damaged hair and the new Color Last Double Care for coloured, highlighted hair which is a daily care product you can leave in your hair that will not weigh it down. It is enriched with fruit oils to help repair hair and give you a shiny, silky feel. I have very fine hair and was really happy with the product. I was able to spray it on my hair at different times during the day and not have it look flat or limp.
I like the shape of the product, tapered in towards the top and easy to hold in your hands. As I have short hair and it does not get tangled that much I decided to try it out on Harmony's hair. She has the longest hair in our house. I know this product is not aimed towards young children but wanted to try it just once to see the effect it would have on longer hair.
Do you love to give gifts? I do and I believe I have found an awesome way of sending a special treat to friends that is total fun and very unique in how they go about business. Let me introduce you to a site called Gifterati - Real Gifts Posted Instantly.
Founded by Jessica a mother of two cherubs, who was tired of seeing her friends and family exchange virtual gifts on Facebook, she created Gifterati who operates throughout Australia and has a huge variety of real gifts available from chocolates, homewares, flowers, jewellery and fruit to donations, adventures and magazine subscriptions.
Gifterati is a gifting website, with a twist as it is 100% compatible with social media and allows people to post gifts to their friends’ Facebook walls. For those of us who love social media this is a fun way to send a gift to a friend. The way it works is you go to the website, choose a gift, log into facebook and select the friend or family member you want to send it to, pay by paypal and then immediately post the gift to your friends facebook wall or email them the surprise gift just for them. They then post the item to your friend of family member within 24 hours.
To test out this service I had a gift selected for me and then posted to my facebook wall. I clicked on the link provided, supplied the address I wanted the gift sent to and then received my lovely gift in the mail. Check out what I received below:
