This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine.
One of my first jobs was working in retail at my local supermarket, in the health and beauty aisle of my small college town in northern Utah. At only 19 years old, I was more interested in the cosmetics than the skincare. I had a very basic cleanse and moisturize routine, and the last thing on my mind was anti-aging. I was only 19 after all! I often found myself knee deep in skin creams, cleansers, toners, exfoliants, and masks, carefully stocking them on the shelves. And you know what? I started to pay attention. I would pick up a pretty bottle of cleanser and think, hmm, I wonder how well this one works and if it dries out my already super dry skin. I’d pick up a bottle of toner and wonder what exactly it was for. Then I’d move onto the moisturizers. For some reason, the moisturizers always seemed to look the prettiest and most alluring of the products on the shelf. Probably being that I was often dealing with dry skin, a good moisturizer started to sound more and more appealing, even with all the crazy anti-aging ingredients I wasn’t worried about participating in just yet. It wasn’t long before I picked up a bottle of Olay and to be honest I have no idea why it called to me the way it did. Maybe it was the beautiful, luxurious and sophisticated packaging, or maybe it was because I knew of this brand well, having seen it on radio and television commercials. But, I found myself interested in this moisturizer more than any of the others, and when it came time to buy a new moisturizer, I bought it! And, well the rest is history ladies! As early on as age 19, I’ve been an avid lover and user of Olay skin care products. I soon figured out later that it’s never too early to start using a good anti-aging moisturizer. Because of this, I’ve always used the best anti-aging creams and products I could find! [Read more…]
