Olay {Dew Over}

I’m traveling back from New York this afternoon after a quick trip in yesterday. I’ve got a similar 24 hours on tap for next week, too. The change of scenery is welcome but contributing to an already over the place schedule. I wouldn’t have it any other way! Does anyone else stay up way too late? If it isn’t late nights working it is late nights spent reading. I’m hosting book club soon so this month’s read for the group is my choice. I went with The Husband’s Secret which I devoured in just a few days. It was worth the fatigue the morning after I finished. That’s what concealer and a dewy moisturizer are for, right? The recipe for beauty sleep in an instant, I say.



At POPSUGAR’s recommendation, I gave the Olay Fresh Effects {Dew Over} Hydrating Gel Moisturizer a test drive. Always a fan of the ‘gel layer’ — as a first step before a thicker moisturizer — I was interested in seeing how this fared. The texture is light and instantly cooling on contact. A few layers on clean skin visibly plumped up my skin. The gel takes some time to really soak in but once it does, the finish is smooth and dry. For best results, give it about 10 minutes to absorb. I think of gels as a first layer, typically, because they can leave a semi-sticky finish but not in this case. The scent is mild and Olay used a few new ingredients with the Fresh Effects line: namely white tea and honeysuckle.


I took a closer look at Olay’s tips for a {Dew Over} and saw the tip to apply this whenever you need a refresh. Mid-day, I applied over my makeup, on my cheeks and sides of my nose which have been a little dry. The cool feeling gave an instant wake-up, which leads me to believe this may have a home in the fridge for use on a hot afternoon. It’s hard to imagine a day that hot this early in the season, but I know they’re on the way.

With the weekend approaching, I’m hoping to squeeze in some actual rest and head to the library to get another book. Any recommendations?

    Thanks for sharing your opinions!! I’m always searching for good moisturizers that are less expensive. I’ll give this a try – I typically like gels for a night-time moisturizer because they’re thicker and I have combo skin. I just so happen to be in need of a new night-time moisturizer too! Perfect timing.
