Olay Fresh Effects

For the past couple of weeks, I have been testing out the Olay Fresh Effects Va-Va-Vivid Cleansing System that I received from Influenster. So far, this is the best cleansing system I have tried to date! 95% of the time when I'm washing my face I have a full face of makeup that I'm having to take off. I was skeptical at first because of the brush and makeup staining it. The makeup washed right off the brush and I had a clean face, too. I have noticed improvement in my oil control in my T-zone. I live in South Texas, so our weather can be kinda crazy including the horrible humidity. 

The Olay Fresh Effects line ranges from $4.99-$12.99 on Olay Fresh Effects Website or Amazon. This product is also found at Target for $12.99 as I purchased additional items from the line today (see below). 

Here's me testing out the cleansing system. I had a full face of make-up on, too and was very impressed at how it cleaned my skin, removing all the makeup (except my eyes - do not use this system near your eyes, it might burn). I rinsed off with cool water and patted my face with a dry, clean towel. I also love how this brush is unique and can fit into hard-to-reach places, unlike other cleansing systems. The system left me feeling refreshed and clean. There have been some products that have left my skin feeling dry or tight feeling. I can honestly say that this did not leave my face feeling that way. I did use a little moisturizer and eye cream before bed, just like my usual routine. 

Disclaimer: This product was sent complimentary by Influenster for testing purposes. 

This was not sent from Influenster, I purchased these myself today at Target (you can see the receipt of purchase).

Here's what I purchased:
Long Live Moisture Satin Finish Lotion - $12.99
Shine, Shine Go Away Shine Minimizing Cleanser - $5.99
Bead Me Up Exfoliating Cleanser - $5.99
BB Cream Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer (Light to Medium) - $12.99
S'Wipe Out! Refreshing Make-Up Removal - $4.99

I will be doing a follow up review on the Olay Fresh Effects products purchased today at Target. I just fell in love with the Olay Fresh Effects Va-Va-Vivid Cleansing system that I had to purchase other products from the line. 

Happy Spring!

I took this picture yesterday afternoon in front of my house. It reminded me that Spring has sprung, flowers will start to bloom, warmer weather, and sunny days. What do you like most about Spring? I love all aspects of Spring including the beauty & fashion trends! I'll be doing a haul post of Spring beauty & fashion this weekend. Have a great Wednesday!
