Happy New Year PJ’s!!! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season.
Along those lines, I’ve really been thinking about what my New Year’s resolution should be. Among all of the things I want to do this year, what did I feel I needed to commit myself to the most?
Can you guess?
Well, I’ve committed myself to developing a better skin regimen, because something’s gotta give. At age thirty-something, struggling with acne is a chore. Don’t even get me started on the hyperpigmentation and scarring that results from all these blemishes I’ve had over the years! OY! Anyway, it’s past time to get this acne under control, and get clear!
So. when Olay introduced their fresh effects line complete with a nifty cleansing device promising 400% better clean vs. basic cleansing, my wallet did the talking.
What’s in the box: Shine shine go away! Cleanser & Va-Va Vivid Power Brush (AAA batteries not included)
First Impressions: This brush is super tiny compared to all the power brushes on the market right now, but based on its size it seems like it may have the advantage of getting into those nooks and crannies neglected by most brushes. The bristles are flexible & rubbery, but a quick run of these against my face didn’t feel bad at all. The cleanser (peeking at the ingredients) has kaolin, iron oxides, and witch hazel (the shine fighting ingredients), but they’re way towards the bottom of the list, so I’m unsure how well this cleanser will combat oil. If you have a sensitivity to smells or dislike sweet floral perfumes then this is definitely something you should avoid. It’s strongly scented with perfume. I’m not a fan of floral scents in general, but in small quantities it’s okay.
It will be interesting to see how this all works out. Stay tuned! Detailed pics below!
