Beauty Bargain Buy of the week...

"Oil of Olay Regenerist Eye Derma-Pod Anti-Aging Triple Response System"

We've now lived in constant sunshine for 4 years and after the first year I started to notice some more freckles and spots on my face and was developing fine lines around the eyes from squinting all the time. So I made an appointment with a well known, reputable dermatologist here in Orange County (the mecca of all things flawless and beautiful) and I asked the Dr. to please prescribe me the BEST stuff they had, no matter what the cost. And do you know what she told me? She told me to head to Target or CVS or Walgreens and purchase a jar of Oil of Olay. I said "WHAT?? You have got to be kidding me, that's just cheapy over the counter stuff for like $10! What can that do?" And she went on to tell me that Oil of Olay is one of the oldest skin care lines in the world and every product they have out on the market has been researched for decades and the ingredients are no different from that of high priced department store or Dr. prescribed brands. (Now when it comes to other skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, or serious brown spots, that is different because the prescription strength brands are higher concentrated than store bought products.) But for fine lines and overall skin maintenance, Oil of Olay is the best on the market. I even showed her a brochure that I picked up in her waiting room proclaiming a "miracle in a bottle" for wrinkles with a price tag of several hundred dollars and she told me to throw that away. How refreshing to find an honest Dr. not out to make a fast buck! I thanked her for her insight and suggestions and on the way home made a pit stop at Target to give these Olay products a whirl. It's been 3 years now and I couldn't be more satisfied with the results. A few months ago I discovered this new product below and REALLY recommend it for the eye area. Costs around $25 for a box of 24 pods to last 8 weeks. I use these in conjunction with Olay Definitiy moisturizer and Regenerist eye serum.

Here's a look at what they can do for you...

Pod puts the benefits of three treatments at your fingertips...for radiant, younger-looking eyes:
1) Resurfaces — regenerates surface cells, revealing younger-looking skin
2) Decongests puffiness — massage helps remove excess undereye fluids
3) Fills lines and wrinkles — microspheres help fill creases for a smoother look

Are you serious? My mom has been a serious Oil of Olay fan since the 70s. Also Pond's cold creme. When I was in high school she started preaching to me about putting on creme. Now I wish I listened to her...

And your mom has gorgeous skin!!! I also use Pond's to remove my make up. It's the best stuff to take off mascara and stubborn lipstick. I've noticed that the price of Pond's has definitely increased over the last couple years too. I think others are catching on! But it still beats the dept store brands.
