The Summer is officially here! I couldn’t be more excited. With only 5 more school days remaining, I find myself anxiously looking forward to spending some downtime with my little ones. Whether it be time lounging in our backyard, at the beach, Wonderland or at the cottage… You can bet the Summer will find us in one common place quite often… Outdoors!
We are an outdoorsy family, and I am a woman who is naturally a ginger with fair skin. The sun and fair skin don’t pair well together. For this reason you will often find me slathering on sunscreen every 2 hours during the Summer months.
As proven in a new study, the sun dramatically impacts skin aging. Surprisingly, women are exposed to the sun on average of 840 minutes a week — showing how sun exposure is always occurring, even if you don’t necessarily notice it! Pretty unreal, right?! I know.
I have a brand of sunscreen that I love to use for my body, but I don’t necessarily like to apply it to my face and neck for the reason that it leaves my face feeling oily. Almost as if it leaves this obvious film of residue.
Fortunately, Olay is launching two new SPFs in July – the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream with SPF 30 and the Olay Total Effects Anti-Aging Moisturizer with SPF 30.
I have had the chance to try out both products, and my personal favourite is the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30. It smells lovely. It’s lightweight, and it goes on smoothly. I have only been using it for a short time, but I have noticed that it has dramatically improved any age spots that I had, and it is helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
The bonus is that when I apply the cream not only can I rest assure that I am protecting my skin from the sun’s harmful rays, but I am also moisturizing my skin too!
The Olay Total Effects Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30 was not the product for my skin. This is not to say that it isn’t a good moisturizer because it is! I have been using Olay for cleansers and moisturizers for years. However, this one particular product was just not for my skin type. It left my skin feeling oily after use. For that reason I will stick with the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 going forward. I just love how it makes my skin feel after use.
