We’ve definitely talked about my dry skin in the past – but usually I’m sharing my skin story or a multi-step skincare routine.
But not today, ya’ll.
Today it’s allll about getting a deep clean without all the steps. I’ve been mixing Olay’s Daily Facials Daily Clean 4-in-1 Water Activated Cleansing Cloths into my skincare regimen and it’s saving me so much time.
I’ve been on a huge no makeup kick lately. I think the older I get the more I come to realize just how much skincare matters. I don’t want to be trying to cover my skin up – I want to feel so good about my skin that I have the confidence to go makeup free. My problem is I often fall short of my skincare goals because I’m so lazy. Taking care of your skin takes time – so I’m all about finding ways to give my skin the love it needs without investing a ton of time.
So I’m super excited to say I’ve partnered with Olay to take you guys through my favorite way to get a quick, but crazy effective cleanse using these facial wipes!
Let’s get ready to rumble. To get started I always run my Olay Daily Facials cloth under slightly warm water. You can do cold or warm water – I just enjoy the warmth!
Daily Facials are water activated so this step gets the party started.
Next I’ll rub the cloth to create just a little friction – this causes it to lather. Daily Facials are actually soap free but they get nice and sudsy for a deep, but gentle clean. I always hate that “squeaky” clean (aka tight skin) feeling that some cleansing products leave behind. I already have dry skin so don’t love feeling like my face is tight. Olay nailed juuuust the right balance of clean but hydrated.
To cleanse my skin I’ll rub my Daily Facials cloth in circular motions across my face. I like to start on my cheeks because that’s where I tend to pack on the most makeup. The cloth is slightly textured with little pockets that gently exfoliate as I wipe.
I’m actually in love with these wipes because they break down everything. Most skin routines have the need for a makeup remover, a cleanser, a toner, and a moisturizer, but the Daily Facials wipes eliminate the need for so many steps. On an average day I’ll wear a tinted moisturizer, bronzer, blush and maybe some eye makeup.
The Olay Daily Facials break down all of it. Even mascara.
I’m basically into anything that saves me time so I love this quick way to get in a good cleanse.
Right before I fully rinse off – I love looking at all the nasty stuff on the Daily Facials wipe. Lolz gross I know. But a dirty wipe means a good clean for me.
Anyway back to business. Next I’ll give my face a good rinse. I actually like to do my final rinse with cold water to close my pores. This seals in all the moisturizing benefits from the Olay conditioners in the cloths.
Mmmm my favorite part – shoving my face into a cozy towel.
I gently dry my face using a nice fluffy towel because it feels ultra luxurious. I just pretend my bathroom is a spa. It’s a great way to live life.
I’m really stickin’ to this attempt at the no makeup trend you guys. I actually just got eyelash extensions and I’m so obsessed – totally saving time in the AM on doing eye makeup!
But the numero uno step in nailing down the no makeup look is healthy skin. I love that I don’t need tons of products to give my skin a little TLC. So here’s to the one step way to cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate all in one.
