Hey y’all! I’m back with a new post where I’ve partnered with Olay! I’ll be sharing the best Olay products that have helped me create my perfect winter skincare routine. I have used Olay Active Hydrating lotion since high school, but I was really interested and excited to try out all of their new overnight gel masks.
***This post is in paid partnership with Olay. All words and opinions are my own!***
I have used Olay products since I was a kid because it’s a company my mom has loved! She is very sensitive to fragrances and Olay products were some of the only ones she could use. Growing up, they were the only ones we had in our house so I have been using them most of my life! I’m so excited to have partnered with them today in order to share some of their new products with you that I love.
90’s Inspired Look + My Olay Caboodle
I was sent an Olay skin care gift set in a CABOODLE! The 90’s baby in me is freaking out about this. I wanted nothing more while growing up and they filled it with so many goodies and masks for me to try out! I also wanted to style a perfect 90’s inspired outfit to go with my new Caboodle which I shared below.
I grabbed this purple blazer that is a little oversized and then I paired it with a sample closet find from my internship two summers ago! It’s a graphic tee that says “Babes Supporting Babes” that I feel like really captures that decade. My jeans are busted knee mom jeans that make me feel like I stepped off the set of Friends! I decided to throw on my favorite pair of pink velvet block heel shoes that really complete the look.
My 90’s Caboodle With Olay Products
I have been having a difficult time lately with my skin. It’s colder outside and my face has been getting so dry! I was excited to open up my Caboodle and see it filled to the brim with Olay face masks and serums to try. I have been wanting to try new face masks that could possibly help with this issue, and I was able to with these!
The first mask that I tried was the Vitamin C + AHA Resurfacing Peel Vitamin C pair! It’s great for dry and combination skin which I have. The Resurfacing Mask with Vitamin C exfoliates and brightens your skin’s surface while the AHA Peel Activator removes impurities! It’s great to use this once or twice a week to revitalize your skin.
You’ll also see these three serum sticks in the photo below! These are great because they deliver moisture that lasts 24 hours. It’s also super easy to apply! Vitamin B3 helps to keep your skin hydrated while the Vitamin C brightens and tones your skin. These are a great addition to your skincare routine because they’re small and easily work on the go!
The last items that Olay added into my Caboodle were these scrubs! The self-care that I love to do weekly is to just use a facial scrub to get rid of all the dry skin. I have done a lot of DIY charcoal scrubs, but now I will never have to do one again! This Detoxifying – Vitamin C & Black Charcoal leaves my skin feeling renewed and refreshed.
Olay Overnight Gel Masks
These three Olay overnight masks were what I was most excited to try! As I said at the beginning of my blog post I told you guys that I have been using Olay Active Hydrating Lotion for years now! I still think I’ll use it in my nighttime routine, but in combination with these gel overnight masks.
The three masks featured are the Overnight Gel Masks with Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Vitamin A! All three of these masks offer different benefits that are all equally helpful for your skin. I personally think I’m going to rotate between them throughout the week so I can get the benefits from all of them!
The first mask on the left is the Overnight Gel Mask with Vitamin E! Vitamin E is a natural anti-oxidant which helps protect the skin from harmful toxins. The second mask is the Overnight Gel Mask with Vitamin C! This is my favorite because of the fact that it is a brightening skin mask.
It contains Vitamin C which is an important antioxidant that brightens skin! The third and final Overnight Gel Mask is the one that contains Vitamin A and Witch Hazel! This witch hazel mask is also a favorite of mine. Witch Hazel is amazing because it helps the skin to retain moisture and keep skin looking firm at all times.
My Nighttime Winter Skincare Routine
Now that the colder months have arrived, I have been looking for products that will keep my skin nourished! I have combination skin (which all of these masks are PERFECT for I might add). I get dry skin really easily and regardless of the time of year and my face also gets oily throughout the day. To combat the dry skin, I use face lotion before I go to sleep!
Now I wanted to share my Nighttime Winter Skincare Routine:
- When in the shower – wash face with water and Olay Daily Exfoliating Body Wash! I have used this body wash since I was little. It’s the only kind my mom could use because the fragrance isn’t that strong! It’s a gentle, clean smell but isn’t overpowering which is something I still love.
- Use Olay Pore Perfecting Vitamin C Scrub. This scrub is a great way to get out all of the hidden dirt in your pores! I use it after I wash off my face gently with soap to get any remaining makeup off of my face.
- After the shower – dry off your face gently with a towel. Always be sure to dab it and not aggressively rub because this can hurt your pores as well as potentially cause wrinkles down the line.
- Apply a quarter size amount of Olay’s Overnight Gel Mask with Vitamin C! I traded in my classic Olay Active Hydrating Lotion for this new gel mask and I have been loving how my skin looks and feels because of it! The Vitamin C really helps it feel refreshed throughout the following day.
- Rub a small drop of Olay Regenerist Retinol 24 Night Facial Serum under my eyes. I get really bad bags under my eyes from sitting in front of a screen all day and night. After starting to use this serum, I noticed it’s been helping them be less dark throughout the week!
There yah have it! My quick and easy Nighttime Winter Skincare Routine. I’ve also been playing around with their Olay Regenerist Luminous Overnight Mask which I have been using off and on too! All of Olay’s products are super nourishing and leave my skin feeling fantastic.
My Favorite Olay Overnight Gel Mask (with Vitamin C)
I wanted to do a highlight on my favorite mask which is the Overnight Gel Mask with Vitamin C! This is a mask used for brightening the face which is something I am always looking for. Even though I am only 23, I feel like my skin has aged much more quickly than the rest of me.
I hate that fact and have been looking for skincare products that will help to combat this. I was so excited Olay reached out because I already use a lot of their products and was really excited to try a new Olay night mask! I talked to this a little bit above, but this overnight mask has Orange Blossom Flower Extract.
This extract has been known to help with anxiety and since that’s something I have (read more about that here), I feel that even the smell helps me calm down at night. When it’s in cosmetics, it’s amazing at nourishing and hydrating! That’s exactly what I’m looking for in the winter when my skin gets dry more easily.
I hope you guys liked this mini Olay product review/nighttime routine post! I have been in love with Olay products since I was a kid because it’s the brand my mom has always trusted. I was so excited to try all of their serums and new overnight gel masks! If you want to try them out yourself, head over to Olay.com to shop for these products and more!
