What I like this week!

Olay Regenerist Ultra Rich Hydrating Moisturizer


If you have dry skin like I do, it’s dry year round, and needs extra hydration regardless of the season. Even the onset of Spring and Summer, with their higher levels of humidity, only ease the dryness marginally, so you still need good hydrating skincare if you have dry skin.


For the warmer months, I like a rich, hydrating moisturiser, in a lighter weight formula, so it sinks into my skin, and doesn’t make my skin feel too heavy in these warmer months. It might seem like a rich, hydrating, and lightweight cream is a misnomer, but they do exist. I love the new-ish Olay Regenerist Ultra Rich Hydrating Moisturizer, a luxurious and hydrating moisturiser. The clean (formulated without fragrance, phthalates, mineral oils, synthetic dyes, or parabens), fragrance-free formula has a rich, buttery, yet lightweight texture that melts into my skin instantly. Promising to deliver up to 24 hours of hydration (it does for my skin), the formula contains Shea Butter, Amino Peptides, and 99% pure grade Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), to deliver instant hydration and a dewy glow. I am loving this moisturiser – it delivers the perfect amount of hydration to my dry skin, leaving it oh, so soft – I’m going to add this to my year-round staple list. Olay Regenerist Ultra Rich Hydrating Moisturizer 50ml RRP $59.99.
