Putting on a happy face

I had a berbuka puasa gathering with friends from university last weekend. It had been two years since we last had one but unfortunately only few could show up. But the few of us had fun catching up nevertheless.

Two of us who were at the gathering were on twitter and so naturally the topic gravitated towards tweeting. My friend commented on how great my skin looks now — she had read about me wanting to try this new face cream on my blog. That happened to be the last post way back in June!

It’s pretty embarrassing to know that whoever added me on Twitter more recently would be reading about my vain quest to get firmer, more even toned skin ๐Ÿ˜›

So after my friend mentioned about my blog, I made a mental note to update it. And here it is, at long last!

Well there’s good news and there’s great news. Before you get too excited — no, I’m not pregnant.

The good news is I actually bought the Olay cream I was pining for. Thursday was officially a month after I bought it. That brings me to the great news. It really did wonders to my skin.

My face has somehow lightened by a shade and dewy-looking. The texture is much smoother too. I don’t know if I look younger because my skin is firmer but I definitely like what I’m seeing in the mirror. I tend to look pale without makeup but I am much more confident and comfortable going without it these days.

I am seriously hooked on this stuff. It’s pricey by my standards — almost RM90 for a jar of 50g — but it’s worth the investment. I actually just bought another bottle although I have not run out of my first one. I thought I’d get it at the store now while I have the cash.

In case I didn’t mention this is my past entry, this cream has received rave reviews from women all over the world. The only complaint that I have heard of is that it has a light fragrance, which makes it unsuitable for women with sensitive skin.

I don’t have any problem with the smell and it didn’t make me break out, so I don’t have any issues with the product.

Although many women would like to prevent sagging skin and wrinkles before they even occur, I would recommend this product only to women who are in their late 20s (by this I mean 27 and above). This product was designed for mature skin so I don’t think younger women, especially those below 20, should even be messing with this product.

So if you’re around my age (32), have the budget and are looking for some new skin care products/makeup this Raya, you might want to check Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream out.

Try it, you might REALLY like it (like me) ๐Ÿ™‚

Update (Sept 17, 2010): My brother — who takes really good care of his skin — just texted me asking about this cream. I assume he’s going to buy it?

As for me, I’m still sold. I like that it makes my skin so smooth that applying make-up is a breeze.
