So, I have some really amazing news to share with you! Guess who will be attending the Grammys this year and partnering with Olay to get me looking my very best!:) 

Can't tell you how excited I am! Obviously I love getting really dressed up and getting my hair and make up done, but hearing some of my favorite artists perform live is definitely icing on the cake!

My partnership with Olay began with a personalized skin consultation at an Olay Lab. The main purpose of this consultation was to check how my skin is doing and diagnose some of the areas that still need improvement! Though as I have mentioned before, I am pretty diligent about taking care of my skin, I still struggle with a few issues like dryness around my eye area and cheeks and redness around my nose and cheek area. Yet, I have not been able to find products that would address all of my concerns at once.

Honestly, when I found out that I was going to have a skin consultation at the Olay Lab, I did not know what to expect. I'm not going to lie, having my skin examined up close by the professionals was a bit scary too. I arrived at the Lab early in the morning ready to learn about how my skin was doing. I met the Olay scientists who were going to work with me, and we dived right into the testing. They took photos of my face with a special machine which then showed everything that was going on: from sun damage to amount of moisture in my skin. The good news, is that overall my skin appears to be in a pretty good shape, but of course there is always room for improvement! After my consultation, I've learned that some of the areas that needed help were the moisture levels, as well as my skin's ability to retain water. 

To address these issues before they started to affect the way my skin looks the scientists at the Olay Lab recommend a regiment consisting of 3 products: Regenerist Regenerating Cream Cleanser,  Regenerist Micro-Sculpting cream moisturizer and  Regenerist micro-sculpting swirl eye cream.

At this point, I've been using these 3 products morning and night for about a month now. What I really like about this new routine is that it is really quick and simple, basically it takes me less than 5 minutes start to finish but also the fact that I am already seeing great improvements. Aside from the fact that my skin looks and feels much softer and smoother, one of my favorite changes actually happen to the under eye area. After using Regenerist micro-sculpting swirl eye cream, I've noticed that the area under my eyes looks much smoother and that the dark circles I am usually sporting thanks to staying up way past my bed-time, have started to diminish! YAY! Also, Regenerist Micro-Sculpting cream moisturizer is really helping with the redness. I knew that lack of moisture resulted in dry skin, but I didn't realize that the redness I was struggling with was also due to low moisture levels in those particular areas. So now that I started to moisturize day and night with Regenerist Micro-Sculpting cream moisturizer, those blotchy, red spots are virtually gone and my skin looks much more even!:) So, definitely super excited to see these changes!

P.S. I'm going to continue using my 3-step regiment and keep you guys posted on my progress! So stay tuned!:)

Love that plaid jacket! Also, I've actually never used olay until I started using their eye makeup remover last week. I may have to try out other products of theirs!
