A huge thanks to Olay for sponsoring today’s post. All opinions are my own.
About a month ago on Instagram, I mentioned that I was trying out the new Olay Brightening Eye Cream and was planning to post a full review on it! You all know my love for skincare — I’m a stickler for taking time each day to take care of my skin, so, I follow a pretty lengthy routine and use a rotation of different products for daytime/nighttime. Now don’t get me wrong, I didn’t start with a FULL routine from day one. It’s been a slow and gradual process to find what products to use, but I tend to get this question a lot. WHERE DO I START?! I started using eye cream when I was in my 20’s –I think it’s the most important first step when starting to incorporate an anti-aging routine! Let me put it to you this way… your eyes can give away your age! Did you know that the skin around your eyes is more delicate and thinner than the rest of your body? Thinner and more delicate = THE FIRST PLACE TO SHOW FATIGUE AND AGING! If you’re not using an eye cream right now… RUN out and go grab one!
I had a bunch of you asking for options that you can find in the drugstore, so I was SO pumped to try Olay’s Brightening Eye Cream to see if it can hold up to some of my favorite products. It was actually perfect timing — I had just finished a bottle of daytime eye cream, and I was looking for the perfect replacement — specifically, to help with hydration and dark circles! What I love about Olay Brightening Eye Cream is how light it is! That’s especially important when I’m going to add makeup on top of my skincare routine — it needs to be hydrating while also being breathable! There’s nothing worse than trying to add undereye concealer on top of thick eye cream that won’t absorb. The Olay Brightening Eye Cream feels so silky while applying, smells heavenly, and gives a slight cooling effect. After trying it out for over a month, it’s a no brainer that it will be included in my skincare routine moving forward. PLUS, you can get it at your local CVS down the road or shop for it online HERE — either way, it makes restocking a breeze!
