Olay Scrubs and Serums- I Try Before You Buy

By on September 25, 2019

Can you imagine the glee I had when I opened my mailbox and there was a package waiting for me? Not just any package, but an Influenster package. New skincare to test out!

This week I am reviewing Olay’s Pore Perfection Face Scrub and Cooling Hydration Pressed Serum Stick.

The Pore Perfecting Face Scrub is “Made with Vitamin C, the scrub helps brighten and refresh your skin, while the essence of Dragon Fruit feels like an escape to the tropics”.

The Cooling Hydration Pressed Serum Stick will “Moisturize, cool and refresh your skin with this serum stick include with Vitamin B3 and calming Cactus Water”.

I will use this for a week straight to come to the conclusion if I can see or feel a difference after using these products.

Results:

I used both the scrub and the serum twice a day. It was the only products that I put on my face. My face was kept acne free this whole time. The serum made my skin feel hydrated and soft. Even the next day.

These products are certainly a good addition to your skin regimen.

You can buy the scrub for $8 and the serum stick for $20 from Olay (They are both on sale right now for those prices).

These opinions are my own and do not reflect the opinions of anyone or anything else.

BioClarity – I Try Before You Buy

By on August 21, 2019

When it comes to skin care, I usually just slap some stuff on my face and call it a day. I have been thinking about developing a skincare routine for a while, but I was not quite sure where to start. Influenster seems to have answered my thoughts and they sent me a bioClarity skin care routine to try out!

bioClarity is a cruelty-free and vegan skin care company that focuses on being “green”. In their products, they use chlorophyll (from plants) and take out the magnesium and replace it with copper (which has healing properties).

Claims

  • Reducing redness
  • Supple face
  • Fight acne
  • More clear skin in (as little as) two weeks

What They Sent

Clear Skin Routine $34.95  

Three bottles: cleanse, treat, and restore.

Test:

The back of the restore bottle says to use twice a day. For continuity, I will use all three bottles twice a day for two weeks to see if it makes a difference.  

Before-

After

As you can tell I have some acne, but it does not tend to be on the front part of my face. I had two zits on the left side of my neck, and one on the right side. I also have always had acne on the sides of where my baby hairs are.

After a week, the neck zits were much less noticeable, which was amazing! They were no longer raised. The neck zits did seem to scar (but they have been there for a while, so probably due to my own mistreatment of them). What I like the most about this product is that redness all over the face did go down. I liked having a three-step treatment and will probably use some of BioClairty’s other products in the future.

What do you like to use for your skincare treatment? Let me know in the comments below!
