An Under $30 Anti-Aging Cream That Works

 

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine.

When I lived at the sorority house in college, I distinctly remember a late night conversation with my girlfriends about skincare. We were taking off our makeup and chatting about the products we used when someone said, “I heard that women should start wearing anti-aging cream at 25.” I remember thinking (or probably saying) “what?! no way!” 25 was just a few years away. I hadn’t even started adulting yet and anti-aging products were already something I should start thinking about?! Flash forward to now, and those same girlfriends and I have frequent conversations not just about anti-aging products, but about wrinkles, because believe or not, mid-20’s is about the time when you can start to see those fine lines coming in. The trouble with most anti-aging products is that they’re way too expensive for a twenty-something’s budget. That’s why I was so excited to find Olay’s Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream a moisturizing and skin-plumping powerhouse that has proven to out-perform 10 of the top creams (including a $440 one!) at under $30!

Back to My Roots

**I’ve partnered with Clairol to create this post.

Confession: I’m not a natural blonde. Or at least I don’t think I am. I’ve been highlighting or coloring my hair in the salon since I was 12 years old, and I couldn’t tell you what my natural color would look like today, but it’s not the platinum blonde color I try to keep up with. Lately, I’ve been traveling so much that maintaining my hair has become tougher than ever. Luckily, a little birdie told me about Clairol Natural Instincts, and now I can maintain my blonde hair from home.

Real talk…if I could describe my hair in one word it would be: tangled. My hair is naturally super fine, straight and has always been a major challenge to comb through after I get out of the shower. When I was a little girl, I remember morning struggles with my mother as she tried (sometimes not-so-gently) to comb the tiny tangles in my hair, and today the struggle is still just as real. The key to un-tangling my hair? Finding the right shampoo and conditioner, of course!

Like every girl, I love a good mani/pedi pamper sesh. There’s something so relaxing about a manicure and pedicure – and unlike a relaxing massage (don’t get me wrong, I love those too!), you walk out with something you can enjoy for weeks to come – a fresh set of lacquered nails and toenails. That’s why I’m so excited to be teaming up with my personal favorite salon in Dallas, Bellacures, to put together a custom mani/pedi package featuring all of my favorite things this winter.
