Hair Removal Vol.5: My choices

I have to say, I do not like hair, unless it’s on my head, or on my eyebrows.  I know no one does, but since I am a Mediterranean girl, and not a blonde hairless Scandinavian, I’ve become pretty much the expert on hair removal!

–          Arms, armpits:  I always use my epilator for these.  I‘ve gotten used to it, so no pain for me. Leaves my skin nice and smooth for a good amount of time.

–          Belly:  I only do this sometimes in the summer.  I either wax or epilate.  Both are just as fast for me.

–          Bikini area:  I wax the area once a month.  I used to visit a salon for this, but after watching the procedure so many times, I decided to do it myself.  Is was time consuming at the beginning, now I’m a Brazilian wax pro!

–          Legs:  I usually shave, using a Gilette Mens Razor.  It’s a vibrating one, but the vibration serves for nothing but to scare the shit out of me when I accidentally push the “on” button on the handle.  If I have more time on my hands I will also epilate, but it does cause ingrown hair on my skin.

–          Face: I tweeze or shave my own eyebrows.  I find shaving very fast, easy, and precise.  I can also experiment with different shapes, knowing that it will grow back fast.  I thread my upper lip & I bleach the fine hair around the chin area and on the cheeks.

Olay Review

Hello, ladies! How have you been?

Skincare review again here! Read on if you ‘re interested!

I’ve been using these two Olay products for the past two months. You all know Olay don’t you?  Used to be really high-end I think, now it’s really affordable. I think these two products were around 10 euros each!  They still have a pretty good reputation, but let’s see…

The one is a night cream called “Olay complete night – night enriched cream”.  It’s supposed to have all the nice and rich ingredients your skin needs to regenerate itself while you ‘re curled up in bed.  This product has a nice clean smell to it, nothing that bothers me, and I’m pretty particular about smells.  It doesn’t smell “old-lady-ish” even though Olay has that kind of tag following it around.  It has a rich, but not oily texture, which leaves my skin feeling quite sumptuous before bed.

What I don’t like about it is that it’s so rich, it sometimes breaks me out.  Not humongous zits, but small whiteheads that clear up until the next day. Now, my skin is pretty oily, so it’s probably not the product’s fault.  On the other hand, not many products have this effect on me, so I will probably not be getting this again.

The second product is an eye cream – “Olay Age Defying Eye Gel”.  It is a completely clear product, so much so that when I first opened the packaging I thought the jar was empty!  This feels very very refreshing around my eyes.  I do feel a sort of pulling sensation as it starts to dry, but not in a bad way.  As if this was doing a “mini-lift” around my eye area, does that make any sense?  I can’t detect any smell to this.

All in all, it’s not an absolute favorite, but I think it’s a good value for money product.  Especially when I compare it to the “Clinique All About Eyes” eye cream.  I usually get along nicely with Clinique products but this stuff made my eyes so freaking itchy, I wanted to scratch my skin off.  (Eww)  It created more wrinkles than it prevented, me thinks.  (I’m giving you the evil eye, Clinique).

 

 

 

Have you any good eye creams to recommend?  Please do.
