Anti-Aging Skin Care for Sensitive Skin from Olay.

It's pretty well known that Olay makes some pretty great anti-aging products. But what if you are one of those people that is very sensitive to anti-aging ingredients? They have finally addressed your concerns and have made an Age Defying Sensitive Skin Day Lotion and Age Defying Sensitive Skin Night Cream.

I'll admit, I try a lot of anti-aging products. I have somewhat sensitive skin as it gets red very easily, but I can tolerate just about anything else. I was surprised when I could not tolerate some of the Pro-X products. I remember getting very red, overly dry and even more sensitive than normal when trying the Pro-X Serum and Pro-X Deep Wrinkle Treatment. I sort of gave up hope on the line and haven't used much from Olay in a long time. In dire need of a day cream and seeing the Age Defying Sensitive Skin Day Lotion on my shelf waiting to be tested, I was hesitant. Did I want to go there again? But it is made for Sensitive Skin, I thought, so I decided to give it a try - but on my hands first. After just a few days of testing and looking at how much better my hands were looking and feeling, I decided to go for it and use both the Age Defying Sensitive Skin Day Lotion and the Age Defying Sensitive Skin Night Cream to the test - on my face.

I am so happy that I finally tried the products. The Day Lotion is an all-in-one formula that combines a great anti-aging moisturizer with broad-spectrum SPF 15 sunscreen to protect the skin. It helps to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles as it provides all day moisture and makes my skin feel silky soft. It did nothing to aggravate my skin; only beautify it. The Night Cream is equally nice. It is richer, but sinks into skin fast as it keeps my skin hydrated all night long.

Olay Age Defying Sensitive Skin Day Lotion with SPF 15 sells for $12.99 and the Olay Age Defying Sensitive Skin Night Cream sells for $14.99. Pick them up at you favorite drugstore or mass retailer.

Spring 2013: Bobbi Brown Lilac Rose Collection.

After a little bit of an unplanned spring break, I am back and spring makeup is definitely on my mind. This new Bobbi Brown Lilac Rose Collection is everything that spring makeup is supposed to be: fresh, beautiful and gorgeous on everyone. Bobbi’s taken this season’s prettiest trend and added her own modern and super fresh twist.

Bobbi Brown Lilac Rose Collection

"With hints of heather grey, this collection is a modern take on spring florals." --Bobbi Brown.

I have to admit that when I fist heard the name lilac, I had visions of the products being overly purple, which is a color I just cannot wear well. I was so wrong. The lilac is a soft version of lavender and the closest to purple product here is the Lilac Sparkle Eye Shadow and I adore it. It is beautiful on the eye lid with a gray or black liner. I actually like to use it on the inner corner of the eye and right under the arch of my brow, where I would normally use a highlighting pink shade. The lilac is definitely a fresher, and updated look. It really makes me look awake and ready to take on spring.

The Bobbi Brown Lilac Rose Collection rundown:

Bobbi Brown Lilac Rose Nail Polish

If you buy anything, the Lilac Rose Eye Palette is a must. It contains eight very wearable shades in colors you will wear all year long. The shadows are silky smooth, very pigmented and last all day. I also highly recommend the Shimmer Brick, because I am just obsessed with them. Really, this Lilac Rose Shimmer Brick is beautiful. It gives skin a bright, flushed look that is naturally beautiful with a hint of shimmer. And if you are looking for a super special new spring product, then the Sparkle Eye Shadow in Lilac Rose is a must; it is unexpectedly one of my favorite products that I have tried in a long while.

The Lilac Rose Collection is available now at all Bobbi Brown locations and online at bobbibrowncosmetics.com.
