// Olay Retinal 24 night serum, night moisturizer, and night eye cream //
I decided to give retinol a go for the very first time with Olay’s Retinol 24 collection. I’m so excited to share that retinol is finally attainable, affordable, and actually super gentle thanks to Olay. Retinol is something I would hear my mom ordering as a prescription on the phone and that was all I knew about it. It sounded intense, too irritating, and just something hard to get a hold of. But I knew it was coveted. The secret to everyone’s anti-aging obsession. Olay’s Retinol 24 collection, featuring a night serum, moisturizer, and eye cream, has completely changed the way I look at this powerful ingredient. Plus, it’s a lot easier to get a hold of! For 4 weeks, I tried the night serum and fell madly in love it. In just after 24 hours, I noticed my skin already feeling firmer, and with time, any dark spots from the summer sun have completely faded. That’s what retinol does, it improves your skins textures and brightens it. The Olay Retinol 24 night serum has changed the way I look at skincare, and it’s probably the most important part of my nightly skincare routine! It’s potent and provides 24 hour hydration. Retinol is proven to brighten the skin and improve fine lines and wrinkles. Luckily, retinol doesn’t have to feel scary anymore, and I feel a lot more educated this ingredient. I feel I’m getting closer and closer to my skin goals. Now aging is one less thing to worry about. It keeps working, all day long.

I have finally found a moisturizer that is hydrating yet fully matte: meet the Olay Luminous Whip moisturizer. With my combination skin, it’s completely normal for me to carry blotting pads around and a compact powder in my purse. I’ll look back at images of myself and always notice that little extra shine around my nose, chin, and forehead. No bueno. I have finally found a way to stop blotting and I’m in heaven.
I have completely minimized the amount of makeup I use simply with this amazing moisturizer. Because it’s absolutely shine-free, it’s the perfect base for my makeup. The moment I rub it in, it goes from a cream to a liquid, feeling light as air on my face. It’s a texture that I have never found in a beauty brand. Super creamy as any whipped moisturizer should be, yet completely weightless. Best of all? It easily doubles as a primer! My makeup goes on smoother and my skin is a lot more glow-y..
Take a peek at my latest makeup routine. First off, I cleanse and apply the Olay Luminous Whip moisturizer from my forehead to my base of my neck. I like to mix it in with a drop of foundation. For this fresh, flushed look, I swiped on a dusty rose lipstick, shimmering pink eyeshadow, and a swipe of deep pink cream blush on my cheeks. I think a rosy look works well on just about every skin tone. This is my effortless go-to makeup look. It’s shimmering and flawless, without the extra greasy shine where I hate it most: the T-zone.
