Looking Good - AND Winning Money!!

Now that I am back to working full-time, and living the semi-single mom life, things can be a little crazy here. OK, a whole lot of crazy! So time for taking care of me is a rare commodity.
At the same time, I really need to take care of myself and feel good about myself. As I get older, I am becoming more aware of the importance in taking care of my skin, and I've always admitted to being a little vain about looking younger. So, I'll take all the help I can get in that department!

I am always interested in products that can help me accomplish that quickly and easily.
I was happy to recently find that in New Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo.
New Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo 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 Hair Removal Cream, that hydrates the skin to minimize irritation, redness, and other tell-tale signs associated with hair removal creams.

I have sensitive skin, and I have never been able to use hair removal creams on my face. They burned and caused irritation in the past. But the New Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo is different. The Skin Guarding Balm coats your skin and prevents the Hair Removal Cream from having a harmful effect on that delicate skin.

It's extremely quick and easy; you simply smooth on the Skin Guarding Balm, then the Hair Removal Cream. In a few minutes, you remove the cream, and the hair comes along with it.
It's great to find a product that helps me look and feel good about myself and makes it so easy.

K, not a US resident, but had to say....facial hair! This is the second time I hear of this in less than 24 hours. I'm wondering if there's something on my face that I haven't yet detected.
Anyway, this was a very terrific review Cindy!

Hi, remember me. I've been away way too long. Sorry to hear about all that is going on with you. The New Year brings new goals & one of mine is to stay better connected with the bloggy peeps I adore (you included).

I moisturize and put on lipstick to help my smile...which expresses my inner beauty

April said...

I make it a point every night to remove all of my makeup and exfoliate my skin before I hop in bed. Then, I put on moisturizer. That way, the next morning, my skin feels refreshed and my inner beauty can shine through!

I was blessed with good skin, but I always use moisturizer and sun screen.

Deb said...

Clogged pores and dry flaky skin cells are not pretty. So I use microdermabrasion and chemical peels to keep a dewy complexion.

Great to know it works wonderfully. I'm gonna have to try this product!

Simplicity inspires my inner beauty. I try to keep my beauty routine to very basic steps and it works well. I don't feel overwhelm and I'm able to keep them consistence. Simple things and keeping a simple life really reflect my inner beauty.

What inspires my inner beauty is volunteering and by taking care of skin and health. My daily routine of cleansing and moisturizing shows that :)

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 have a simple beauty routine because my skin is so sensitive due to rosacea, that I cleanse my face, moisturize with a special moisturizer and then mineral makeup on the days that I wear it. That routine helps bring out my simple style of inner beauty. Nothing fancy, just plain old me.

I express my inner beauty with my hair! My hair style can usually tell you what kind of day I'm having or how I'm feeling inside. A big fun up-do is a fierce day. A low simple bun is a demure day. And my hair down and wild is a crazy-out-of-my-way day!

I didn't wear make up until very recently, but once I started, I realized just how transformative it could be! Even just a little mascara and face powder makes me feel more confident to be myself and let my inner beauty come through.

I express my inner beauty by acting and dressing as though I feel like a million bucks, even when I don't. Amazing how I can fool myself into feeling good!

slehan said...

I express my inner beauty through swimming 3 times a week which energizes me and keeps me fit.
Thanks for the contest.
