You might remember from the summer, i took part in a Savvy Circle Project, for the Braun Silk Epil.
Well, this time I've been selected to trial the New Venus & Olay collaboration as well as an Olay moisturiser.
My 'kit' came in the post today, containing, A Venus & Olay Five Blade Razor, an Olay Essentials Complete Care Multiradiance Fluid, Information Booklet and lots of vouchers to pass onto friends and family.
I'm just going to do a quick First Impressions/Unboxing., and over the next few weeks Ill do full reviews of the products.
First of all i opened the Razor up, I'm really intrigued to try it out and see how the Olay element of the razor works.
The packaging of the product has a lovely summery feel to it, and has a holographic finish in some areas, which you can just pick up in the picture.
The pack contains, the Razor handle, 1 head and a holder that has a suction cup to attach to the shower wall (pretty handy) I always thought Venus razors came with a spare head, but perhaps they've changed.
The razor head holds two moisture strips infused with Olay goodness as well as being lightly scented with notes of Caramel and Peach, which smells really scrummy.
I cant wait to try it out, and see how well the moisture strips work. According to the information book, the moisture strips mean you don't need to use any shaving gel or foam with the razor, you just wet it and it creates its own lather.
Unfortunately i wont be able to use the razor until at least next week, as I'm not allowed to get the stitches in my ankle wet.
The other part of the kit is the Olay Essentials, Complete Care Multiradiance Fluid.
I've never tried an Olay moisturiser before, so it'll be good to see how this one works out, my only concern with the product at the moment is that it states it for Normal/Oily skin type, whereas i have a Normal/Dry skin type. I'll still give the product a good try and hopefully it won't make to much difference.
The product comes in a 75ml pump bottle. I like pump bottles on moisturiser, i think its more hygienic and i tend to use a lot less product, than if I'm just scooping it a pot with my fingers.
*Please Excuse My Bruised Hand*
The product itself is actually a bit thicker than i was expecting, as a fluid i was expecting something quite watery, but this has a nice consistency.
It contains 'light reflecting particles' which essentially is glitter. This though doesn't have chunky glitter like some of the cheaper illuminating products have. This one leaves a nice subtle sheen on your skin, something I'd imagine looks gorgeous in the summer times.
The other thing i love about the product is that it has a lovely fresh scent, this could be down to the Mandarin extract, though is doesn't smell very citrus-y.
The moisturiser also contains SPF 15 UVA/UVB, so its great for protecting your skin day-to-day.
I really cant wait to try out both these products, and I'll be sure to keep you up dated on how i get on!
Have you tried either of these products before?
Lots of Love
