Embracing a Healthy Family: Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Review

Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Review

One thing I'm happy about as times have changed is the information to younger people on the importance of taking care of your skin.  I wished I had that advice when I was younger as when you are in your 20's, you don't really think about it as it seems so far away.  I'll never get old and looking at my dad, the idea of turning 40 seemed a million light years ahead.  Little did I know that those light years would break the sound barrier as those 20 years sped by about as fast as a piece of chocolate goes in our house.  With the renewed interest in aging come a host of products with all sorts of claims to wipe away years or to make you look instantly younger with the application of a product.  I like the not-so-quick witch doctor claims that thoroughly explain what the product is about and doesn't make instant claims.

As a BzzAgent, I received four complimentary Covergirl and Olay Simply Ageless products for my review.  I was not financially compensated for this review and keeping within the BzzAgent's code of conduct, I can be as honest as I want to be.   I do like Covergirl products as they are inexpensive compared to some other department store products and deliver high quality looks.  Who doesn't love Drew Barrymore?  She looks gorgeous in her commercials but she always does.  I am also a fan of Olay as I think the products are unique and deliver for the most part.  Using Ellen for their spokesperson was a smart decision to appeal to the older non-covergirl model.  Us older women can relate to Ellen.  She's not high end glamorous but she has style and takes care of herself.  She looks great anytime as well but her features are accentuated with the use of the Covergirl and Olay line of Simply Ageless.

What's the secret behind Simply Ageless? It is formulated with little trolls to fix the road of wrinkles...okay, not really but it is formulated with Olay Regenerist serum to help restore evenness to your skin's texture and tone.

The four Simply Ageless products I tried were:

  1. Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation
  2. Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Corrector
  3. Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Eye Concealer
  4. Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush
Step 1:

After washing and moisturizing my face with Olay (I already used it), the Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Corrector combines intensive yellow pigments to counteract and neutralize the look of severe dark circles around your eyes.  My kids rarely sleep through the night so sometimes, my eyes could use some 911 help.  This went on smooth and silky and I could definitely see the areas I applied it.

Step 2:

The eye concealer helped to conceal the dark circles by brightening and moisturizing the skin around my eyes while blending it to my skin tone.  Again, it went on smooth and silky and did in fact blend in well.  It is available in four different shades for all skin types.

Step 3:

Covergirls states that the Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation has been shown to significantly improve skin condition in just four weeks of continuous use.  I have not used it long enough to feel this change however.  Available in 15 shades, the foundation I received went on a little light but it did feel silky and smooth.  It also has a SPF 22 for that added protection against the sun.

Step 4:

The Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush glides over the skin leaving behind a subtle contour of my cheekbone.  You control the level of color you want on your cheekbones but I found it went on smooth and easy and was just the right amount.    It is available in four shades and also uses Olay's Regenerist serum.

I had a step 5 as I noticed it was a little on the shiny side so I tried to put on some powder but ended up preferring it without the powder.

Overall, I liked the ease for application.  The foundation and blush are an all-in-one carrying case with the special spongy applicator on the top that flips up and the bottom screws off to reveal the foundation and blush.  It's a smart way to be able to take things on the go without mess.  It covered my skin and allowed for an even skin tone.  I would recommend the Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless line of products and look forward to seeing some benefits after four weeks of continuous use.
