Your Perfect Summer Moisturizer: Olay Fresh Effects {Dew Over!}

olay fresh effectsWhen I was at Coachella, Olay Fresh Effects was sponsoring all of the fun parties, which was such a big win for me since I got to stock up on the Fresh Effects {Dew Over!} Hydrating Get Moisturizer (and their wipes which I love). At every event, I would ask for it, which is funny since I had packed a bottle with me for the trip!

Beauty Travel Essentials: 12 Products that Got me Through Africa

Let me tell you, when you spend 20 days traveling through dust and sand, while being unable to drink much less brush your teeth with tap water, it takes some solid beauty products to keep everything in check. And considering I was basically on the line of the equator for most of my trip efficatious SPF products were a must. While I didn’t pack any hair products that knocked my socks off (now that I’m home I need to bathe in leave-in conditioners), I made some outstanding face, body, mouth choices — and here are the products that stood out: 

Supergoop!, Crest 3d, Reach, Nivea

Battle of the Body Washes: Olay Vs. Dove

Olay body wash vs. dove body wash

When talking about facial skincare products it seems like every other day a new ingredient or technology is unleashed. You see these ads for miraculous creams that fight the appearance of wrinkles, shrink your pores and every other fountain of youth claim. I don’t find that as common with body washes.  In fact it seems like body washes developed years ago are just as popular and celebrated today as when they were created. It’s also not a category where I’ve ever felt the luxury market has something so much better to offer then drugstore brands (especially for the price). This generalization is something I largely contribute to Dove’s Deep Moisture Body Wash.

It’s been a staple in my shower for years. It’s affordable, offers a great experience – clean smell, rich lather, and leaves my skin smooth and balanced. We look to body washes to cleanse, however some can strip your body of their natural body oils so it’s important to opt for moisturizing body washes that leave a layer of moisture to replenish any of the oils removed. Dove’s body wash features their NutriumMoisture, which is a rich blend of nutrients clinically proven to improve moisture by preserving both natural proteins and lipids. Considering that this fulfilled on everything I was looking for in a body wash even after testing out different shower products, I found myself going back to and recommending this one. Until now.

Recently I was challenged to try Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash with Shea Butter. Boasting the formulation contains over one jar of Olay moisturizers, the product claims: It’s hydrating, soap-free formula offers superior cleansing and 2x the lather than the leading body wash while rinsing away cleanly.

After using this product for the past three weeks I can honestly say it delivered on all accounts. Immensely hydrating, it’s thicker and works up a much larger lather then Dove or other body washes (not that Dove’s isn’t latherful as well). Olay  definitely goes on heavier but rinses clean and makes skin touchably smooth within the first try and leaves skin hydrated throughout the day. By the end of the first week my skin was noticeably more soft and supple, especially around the knees and elbows, which are my trouble spots. If you have dry, flakey, skin, or tend to skip the step of moisturizers after your shower, I would highly recommend trying this product. I tend to gravitate towards clean smells, however I found Olay’s softer scent to be pleasant and nice for summer. Although my boyfriend found it a too feminine for his liking, but light enough of a fragrance to still use it.

Dove body wash, olay body wash

If you’re more normal to oily you could go either way between Dove and Olay. I still love the clean scent and lightness of Dove, it wakes me up in the mornings. Both have a soft, creamy texture that leaves your skin feeling soft and hydrated. Olay just offers an extra layer of hydration, which come wintertime, will be so necessary.

PC Top Summer Beauty Picks Under $40

Now that it’s officially summer, here are some of my new favorite products to help keep you refreshed and hydrated throughout the season and well into fall.

Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer Stress-Minimizing Daily Hydrator ($40) – Stress has terrible effects on our bodies, including our skin! From blotchiness to premature aging (to irritation, acne, dehydration, skin fatigue and redness), this product is lightweight and packed with efficacious ingredients (like Rosa Gallica Botanical Extract, Mannose, Camomile Extract, Shea Butter, and Glycerin) to help counteract these negative effects. Plus it’s fragrance and oil-free! I’ve been using it for about a month and see a noticeable difference in my skins health and complexion.

BECCA Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector ($36) – I’m not big on silicone based primers, especially in the summer. Instead opt for a water-based one like BECCA’s oil-control primer which feels so good on (it’s like giving your skin a drink of water). It smooths out pores and lasts all day. It’s great alone or used before or after your foundation application.

Olay Ultra Moisture With Shea Butter Body Wash ($3.99/12oz, $5.99/23.6oz) – In the last three weeks I’ve changed to this body wash and my skin is noticeably softer and more hydrated. It packs some serious lather but rinses off light, and offers a pleasant scent that isn’t heavy or overpowering. If you’re skin is on the dryer side, it’s a must try; especially in the summer time if you’re hoping to switch to a lighter post-shower moisturizer (or tend to forget/skip that process all together).

Murad Clarifying Wipes ($18) –  Perfect for acne-prone skin, these wet wipes contain an oil-fighting formula that reduces shine, balances and tones skin by removing dirt, oil and bacteria that can clog pores. While it’s great for the face, I pack
