The Olay Fresh Effects Hydrating Gel Moisturizer is one of several new Olay Fresh Effects Skincare products that launched this spring. This oil-free formula is infused with honeysuckle and antioxidant-rich white tea, and let me just say, it smells absolutely amazing! It has a very light, fresh, floral scent that wakes you up. Whenever I get a whiff of it, my senses create an image of a beautiful sunny morning with a light breeze blowing. You know, the kind of mornings that just make it easy to start your day off in the right mood!
The product itself has a very cool and refreshing feel when applied to my skin. It was neither greasy, shiny nor oily, but rather absorbed quickly into the skin and left it practically matte, which is a good thing in the summer time when I tend to get more oily. It’s actually a very lightweight moisturizer with a gel like texture formulated with a powder to help reduce the shine without compromising the hydration your skin needs. It also doesn’t clog pores, which is another bonus for those of us, like me, who have sensitive, acne prone skin.
I normally have combination skin and found that as long as I didn’t wear this under my normal matte foundations, it worked amazing. My skin had enough moisture, yet looked matte, for once I had the best of both worlds in one product! It gave me beauty in an instant. Before discovering this product, I had to apply a very hydrating moisturizer to appease my skin and then followed it with a matte foundation, to appease me. With the Fresh Effects Dew Over I get the moisture my skin needs and the matte look I prefer in just one step.
I have several foundations that I simply adore, other than the fact that my skin looks like a disco ball with them because they weren’t designed to combat my oily skin. Over time I pushed these foundation to the back of my makeup drawer because the thought of blotting or powdering my face all day just seemed like one of the last things I wanted to worry about, not to mention the very cakey look I would be left with. Sticking to my matte foundations was the only logical solution for me, until now! Thanks to my new Beauty in an Instant, aka: Olay Fresh Effect Dew Over, I get to rekindle my love with those once pushed to the back of the makeup drawer foundations.
