Back to Routine with Olay, COVERGIRL and Secret #PGmom #Review #Giveaway

Hannah and I might not be in school. But I work on a university campus and Hannah attends daycare there. In August, we saw tumbleweed (OK, not literally, but you get the idea). Now, there are students as far as the eye can see. You have to move fast to stay out of their way and keep with the general direction or you'll feel like a salmon swimming upstream. It doesn't help that Hannah walks slowly or demands to be carried to and from the car. What was once a 45 minute commute, is now at least an hour - it sometimes takes us 15 minutes just to get out of the parking lot and off campus!

Talk about a sweaty, stress-filled mess! Thank goodness I have Olay, COVERGIRL and Secret to take care of my skin and make sure I don't smell (even after carrying my 30 lbs toddler up four flights of stairs).

We try to go to bed earlier to deal with the chaos on campus, but sometimes our cat has different ideas (yes, the cat wakes me up more than my 2.5 year old does). Regardless, when you get up at 6 a.m. (aka before the sun) it's nice to have fresh smelling products to wake you up.


Enter Olay Fresh Effects {Acne Control Scrub!} Salicylic Acid Acne and Blackhead Clearing Scrub and Fresh Effects {Dew Over!} Hydrating Gel Moisturizer. It's like a fruit salad for my face in the morning. The Clearing Scrub smells of yummy mandarin and the hydrating gel smells of honeysuckle. The moisturizer is my favourite - it really DOES refresh your skin and it leaves me calm - especially when Hannah is yelling for more chocolate milk right outside the bathroom door.

Speaking of dong things quickly due to toddler demands, the Secret Clinical Invisible Solid goes on dry so you can get dressed quickly...and stays dry no matter what heavy lifting or stress may be a part of your day.

Then it's time for hair and make-up. A new essential has become COVERGIRL + Olay De-Puffer Eye Concealer. Recall earlier in this post how I mentioned the cat keeps us up at night? He also has a habit of sleeping...on my face. As I'm allergic, the de-puffer works well for allergies, and the concealer works well for countering my dark circles.
