Skincare Review – Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Aging Cream Cleanser


Hey loves! While traveling, my skin – specifically my face – has been taking a beating. Because of that, I decided to try something new in hopes to bring back the good ol’ me. I picked up the Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Aging Regenerating Cream Cleanser and I haven’t had a regret about this purchase. I ensured I used this product for about a week to guarantee that I wasn’t been tricked with a one- or two-day goodness package and then the overall quality of it would fall off.

While scanning the beauty aisle, which I haven’t done in quite some time, I won’t lie to you that I wasn’t intimidated. Most of the products I use these days, I’ve either been using for years or they were recommended by a favorite blogger or Instagrammer because we know social media is undefeated. Despite all this, I went in super open-minded. I saw multiple brands and products but this one stood out to me, not to mention the Olay brand is one of the OGs in the business of beauty.


I can definitely say I recommend this product. The mere addition of the word “Anti-Aging” in the title of the product did kind of mess with my head a bit, I wont’ lie. Being a gal in her 30’s means I’m far from being old or aged so it did raise an eyebrow for me. After all, that’s something you would normally see on your mom or aunt’s cleanser on her dresser back in the day. In this situation, I ignored it all together and gave the product a shot. The product left my face feeling clean and soft. It has a consistency that is similar to a scrub. However, it’s not as harsh as a facial scrub typically is. The price point is also another highlight as it is extremely affordable at about $7 or $8 dollars, and can be even cheaper if you buy the product online through Amazon. Several vendors on the platform sell them in packs of three and you can get them more reasonably than your local Walgreens or CVS.

I hope this review was helpful. Leave a line if you’ve tried this product before now or picked it up after reading my review. Until next time. Xoxo.

Freeman Polishing Charcoal & Black Sugar Gel Mask & Scrub Review

Heyย loves! In addition to my fashion and travel content, I’ve decided to share a few of the beauty products I use as well here on the blogspace. This year, I’ve made it my duty to be more keen on my skincare routine and to incorporate new products as well. I’ve always used face masks and scrubs from the St. Ives brand, but I wanted to switch things up, so I settled on the Freeman brand.



While browsing my eBay app for affordable masks, I managed to stumble upon the Polishing Charcoal & Black Sugar Gel Mask & Scrub. To be honest, I went in with no expectations. After reading a few reviews, I decided to give it a try based on my current needs, added it to my cart and checked out.


I found the product to be extremely helpful, as it was able to rid my face of makeup build up, but was not so harsh that it irritated my skin. I’ve been using it twice a week for approximately two months now with no issues. The mask is also sweet smelling and even has a sugary taste (I accidentally tasted it during an application).

If you are looking for an affordable product that cleanses your pores and gives a smooth, glowy finish to your skin, I would definitely recommend it. I’ve added two pictures below showing my face during and after my last application. Until next time. Xoxo.
