Cover Girl

Did you know that the first time I’ve ever tried any makeup from Cover Girl was during New York Fashion Week Spring 2010? I can already feel many of you are surprised. Well, growing up in Israel back in those days we didn’t have many options for makeup . It was a beauty brand I was not at all familiar with. Luckily, I can’t think of a better introduction to Cover Girl, now one of my favorite makeup lines, by Jake Bailey Cover Girl’s celebrity makeup artist. I met Jake at the CVS Reinventing Beauty Lounge back in September 2009, he did my makeup using all Cover Girl products and needless to say Marta was in love!

Olay PROx Intensive Wrinkle Protocol

Does this scenario sound familiar: You are standing in front of a huge skincare isle or shelf in your local drugstore and you just can’t decide which moisturizer to buy. Well, my decision is easy these days: I’m in LOVE with Olay PROx Intensive Wrinkle Protocol. The creams are super hydrating, silky to touch, and never heavy or greasy. No strong fragrance, which is a big plus. Honestly, this is my favorite Olay moisturizer line, alot of it to do with the fact that not only it works amazing on my skin, there is no strong perfume smell. You know me, I’m not so keen on perfume in my skincare.

The Olay PROx Intensive Wrinkle Protocol kit includes: age repair lotion with SPF 30. wrinkle smoothing cream. deep wrinkle treatment.

Prevention magazine put the leading anti-aging beauty products to the test again this year and found seven products deserving of the “Defy Your Age” seal, including Olay ProX Age Repair Lotion, Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Age Shield Hand Cream and Estée Lauder Idealist Dual-Action Refinishing Treatment.

To determine the winners, Prevention enlisted seven leading dermatologists to test the claims of the 35 most promising products of the year on a group of 175 women, ages 40-plus, for a period of up to eight weeks. The doctors then employed state-of-the-art equipment to measure which products best delivered on their claims using before and after skin analysis. The teams investigated seven categories of products including hand, eye and night creams; lip, adult acne and microdermabrasion treatments; and day lotions with .

Olay Definity Highly Defined Anti-Aging Skin Care

It seems to me that Olay is becoming synonymous to quality yet affordable skin care. If you are a fan of Olay Regenerist you might want to learn about Olay’s latest addition, which was first introduced in July 2006: Olay Definity.

Here are some facts about Olay Definity: A precision technology anti-aging skin care collection containing the Olay-exclusive Essential Glucosamine Complex to reduce the appearance of skin discolorations such as dullness and brown spots by up to 78 percent vs. base moisturizer. With daily use, Olay Definity penetrates up to 10 surface layers deep and hydrates to both help reverse the appearance of past damage coming from beneath skin’s surface and allow natural rebuilding of skin’s collagen.

There two main ingredients in Olay Definity: N-acetyl glucosamine and Niacinamide. N-acetyl glucosamine is found to work with moisturizing Niacinamide to improve the skin’s moisture barrier, visibly reducing the appearance of hyperpigmented spots and improve the overall evenness of skin tone. Niacinamide works to hydrate and soften skin while creating strong moisture barrier to help reduce the appearance of red, blotchy skin.

Definity Product line-up:

Olay Definity Deep Penetrating Foaming Moisturizer: an aerated serum less dense than a lotion or cream, but with equal penetration performance. It feels virtually weightless on the skin and easier to spread than a cream or serum, hence more even coverage.
