What I like this week!

Olay Vitamin C Mask & AHA Resurfacing Peel


Every so often, I come across a product I didn’t even know I needed, yet once I’ve tried it, I can’t live without it. I’m fairly happy with my skin at the moment – it’s plump, hydrated, and generally not looking its age, yet after I used the new Olay Vitamin C Mask & AHA Resurfacing Peel, I just couldn’t believe the results.


As the name suggests, the Vitamin C Mask & AHA Resurfacing Peel is a two-step facial treatment, designed to be used at home.  Step 1, the Resurfacing Mask with Vitamin C exfoliates and renews your skin’s surface.  The formula contains rich antioxidants with Vitamin C, and Niacinamide, whilst clever Hydrated Silica crystals in the mask work hard to polish away dirt and oil – then dissolve after one minute to prevent over scrubbing. Step 2, the AHA Resurfacing Peel combines with the mask in a luxurious warming foam, to help remove dead skin cells and impurities. Olay Vitamin C Mask 64g & AHA Resurfacing Peel 59ml (sold as a set) RRP $54.99.


After the first use, I couldn’t feel any dry, dull skin – not a single bump – my skin was super smooth, and baby soft, and it just glowed. This is one product I’ll be using over and over again – you use it up to 2 times a week, so it lasts quite a while (once a week is fine for my skin at the moment). With each subsequent use (3 so far), my skin just feels better and better. It works so quickly too – each step takes 1 minute, so it fits into any skincare routine. I found this duo to be really gentle on my skin, with no redness or itchiness after using – it’s a real winner.
