28 Days of Olay Luminous

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

As a longtime fan of Olay, during my college years, Olay kept my face flawless on a budget. Now that I’m knocking on 40, my skin requires a little more maintenance. About a month ago I shared on Instagram that I was participating in the #Olay28Day challenge using only the Olay Luminous line for my skincare needs. I have very dry areas on my face.

Summer 17′ is officially in full swing.  If you’ve been hiding those gambs all winter, it’s time to bring them out.  There was a time in my life when I hated summer because I was so insecure about showing my legs.  My tomboy legs were crooked (bow) and full of scars.  All the other little girls had pretty smooth legs.  By the time I reached high school, I finally embraced my legs.  Now they’re my favorite body part.  I wanted to share with you how Vaseline along with a few simple tips, keep my legs looking radiant all summer long.
