Olay Fresh Effects | Review & GiveawayWednesday, June 11, 2014
"Out of this Swirled" Deep Pore Clean + Exfoliating Scrub
It comes in three different scents... I can only vouch for the Green Apple & Jasmine Tea one, though. I should also note that this cleanser is also sold as the Olay Pore Minimizing Cleanser + Scrub (says so on the back of the packaging).
Fresh Effects Wet Cloths
I love these wipes because they’re easy to use and they leave my skin feeling cleansed and fresh (not sticky or grimey).
"Bright On Schedule" Eye Awakening Cream
In the morning, my under eyes definitely need a boost and this gives my eyes an instant pick-me-up. Seriously. The tri-rollerball applicator feels so good on the skin! It’s cooling, refreshing and just the perk I need in the morning or throughout the day— yes... I've been known to take 30 seconds out of my day to massage my under eyes with this (especially after staring at a computer screen non-stop).
The eye cream is nice and fairly hydrating, but I usually couple it with something more potent (like the Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado or the Olay Regenerist Luminous Dark Circle Correcting HydraSwirl). The star of the show is definitely the applicator.
"Dew Over" Hydrating Gel Moisturizer
"Long Live Moisture" Satin Finish Lotion
This moisturizer is also moisturizing on the skin (but still not effective for very dry skin). The lotion is lightweight and non-greasy, it keeps the dry spots on my face moisturized and the oily spots from becoming too shiny. Satin finish is a good way to describe this... it's not totally matte on the skin, but it doesn't make you look super shiny, either. I especially love using this at night, actually. When I wake up, my face still feels hydrated.
The Fresh Effects line is available at all major retailers (Target, Walmart, Shoppers Drugmart, etc) and the prices range between $7.99 - $15.99 (depends on where you buy).
