PRODUCT REVIEW | SKIN
By Huda Heidi Kattan
I don’t usually do this. Typically I wait before writing about a product, but after just one week, I’m SERIOUSLY crushing on this product,which I did NOT expect! First of all, I’d like to start by saying I’m an “embrace your natural beauty” kind of gal, so when I see skincare products that lighten skin, I don’t go for them. When I’m asked to work with brands that “lighten” skin, I always say no! I grew up thinking my skin was too dark! In so many parts of Asia, the middle east not excluded, it was very trendy not too long ago to be lighter, so that’s what I wanted to be! The lighter your skin is, the more beautiful? NOT true! Embracing your own skin color is soooo important and more beautiful than any lightening can do!
Ok, now that I have that off my chest, I have to tell you I am in LOOOVE with the Olay White Radiance Serum. Here’s the deal, it doesn’t really lighten as much as it brightens! After using this for a week, my skin is soooooooo even toned that I actually feel good not wearing foundation when I go out, which for me, is CRAZY! My skin really didn’t lighten, it kind of brightened! It looks healthier, more radiant and honestly, I feel more confident about it than I have in a long time! It feels amazing when you wear it, it’s hydrating, but there is zero oiliness! It definitely ranks with all of my super pricey serums and is the best brightening serum I have ever used! I highly recommend this!
I always say to everyone, to understand why I love Olay so much, you have to give it a try! I remember not wanting to try it at first, but after learning about the ingredients they use, I decided to try them and it was one of the best skincare decisions I could have ever made!
