New Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo Review and NEW BlogHer Giveaway time!!!♥


As you all know, I've been SUPER excited about reviewing a new Olay product.
YAY! Today is the day for the BIG REVEAL!
I recruited my BFF to help me do the review, and we had a great time with some GREAT laughs.
First of all, getting older means you start getting a little heavy on the granny facial hairs. There. I said it. Facial hairs. Ugh. As if the wrinkles aren't bad enough. Lorie and I laugh all the time about aging and all the fabulous things we are experiencing in our thirties. The least glamorous of them all is facial hair.
We could not stop laughing. But in all seriousness, we may not like to talk about it, but who wants to look like a wooly mammoth? LOL! Not ME!
Olay has a super neat new product called New Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo.

It is a uniquely formulated two-step system designed to gently, yet effectively remove unwanted facial hair, leaving skin smooth, conditioned, and visibly hair free. This gentle hair removal system contains a Skin Guarding Balm, applied before the removal cream, that hydrates the skin to minimize irritation, redness, and other tell-tale signs associated with hair removal creams.
Here we are BEFORE:
The first step is to apply the Skin Guarding Balm.
Here I am applying it to my upper lip. You had no idea you would get so up-close and personal with me today did you?

Lorie really wanted to try it on the side of her face.
So here she is putting the Skin Guarding Balm on...
We decided to just get crazy and ended up doing our 'staches, chins, and side burns. LOL.
After applying and rubbing in the Skin Guarding Balm, you apply the Hair Removal Cream.
Here's Lorie totally rockin' her 'stache cream!
This the hottest Mammas picture EVER! LOL!
Here are Lorie's results:
And here are my results:
Pretty hairless Mammas! LOL! In all seriousness, Lorie and I were amazed at how much hair was removed with the product. Our make-up goes on MARVELOUSLY, and we LOVE how smooth our skin is. We are BUSY moms, and this really made us feel pretty and pampered! It's a SIMPLE and FAST way to show off your pretty Mamma skin!

Pretty skin = Happy Mamma!

I keep things simple by using a moisturizer and only wearing lip gloss, blush, and occasionally mascara.

I simplify my beauty routine by conditioning my hair and wearing it natural instead of spending a lot of time with the blow dryer. I also use light makeup instead of spending a lot of time applying it too heavy.

I moisturize in the shower and I don;t wear makeup which keeps it simple

melodyofjoy said...

I use a mineral powder instead of liquid foundation. I find it is faster to blend.

AubreyLaine said...

I make sure to wash my face everynight so I don't have to spend a ton of time on makeup when I have blemishes!

Kelli said...

It doesn't sound simpler, but I use a makeup primer so that I don't have to touch-up my make up when I've got evening activities to attend.

As I'm older; my skin is dry day and night - so lot's of moisturizer is needed.

Will have to try this product and add it to my routine; thanks for sharing!

eileendovr said...

I hate wearing heavy foundations (I find that I don't need that much coverage anyways), so I wear a tinted moisturizer with SPF. no need to apply a separate sunscreen!

Mary said...

I use makeup remover wipes (Neutrogena is great) when I travel - fast and lightweight to carry. I love Eliz. Arden's 8 hr. Lip Protection Stick in Berry, a lovely sheer red, when there's no time to do the whole lipstick/liner thing.

I would love to try this new hair removal product - others I've tried leave my skin sore and then it breaks out in a couple of days! Late 60's is far too old for acne!!!!

Loved your post - you gals are brave to do this online!

Deb said...

I try to let my inner beauty shine by not covering myself with too much makeup, and also simplifying my accessories. When I look more natural, I feel more like my true self.

I keep everything in a 5 drawer organizer on my counter. I have my after shower stuff in the top drawer, then work my way down to the bottom drawer that holds my finishing touches. It's a great way to make sure I don't miss anything!

I use Olay moisturizer, mineral makeup, sunscreen, Fake Bake tanning spray (instead of tanning bed) eat lots of fruits & veggies, drink lots of water. It leaves a natural glow that I can add a little mascara & lip gloss (busy momma/wife) & feel good about myself! Also, I love adding a cute belt to basically any shirt I wear (quick & easy throw together) & I actually can be happy with myself! My hubby & daughter are my great supporters to let me know I don't need any make up. They do tease me about my facial hair though-when we're out somewhere. Which gets pretty embarassing! My daughter just told me tonight, "Mommy you need to get rid of your mustache!" WOW! Too many bad experiences to do so!
