Fresh Summer Look with CoverGirl and Olay + $25 Walmart card GIVEAWAY!!

The Walmart gift cards and information have been provided by P&G.

I usually don't wear a lot of makeup but I always wear mascara and lip gloss. I also use a moisturizer on my face daily. My favorite moisturizer is Olay Regenerist® Micro-Sculpting Cream™. I love this cream because it keeps my face moisturized plus it reduces those tiny wrinkles and fine lines that I keep seeing every time I look in the mirror! Plus, it leaves my skin feeling smooth. The non-greasy formula is excellent for the summer.

During  the summer, I find we are going out more. There are always picnics, dinners and events. That means I have to make sure I look my best. To do so, I head over to Walmart and stock up on my favorite P&G products. I am a huge fan of P&G beauty products. With brands like CoverGirl® and Olay®, how can I go wrong?


With Walmart's everyday low prices and variety of great products, it is the place to shop for my favorite P&G products. The other day I headed over to stock up on some products for the summer. My favorite brand of mascara has always been CoverGirl®. I never go wrong with CoverGirl®. And my favorite mascara at the moment is the LashBlast Volume Mascara. I have the smallest lashes ever and LashBlast gives me thick, full looking lashes with a swipe of the wand.


I also picked up some CoverGirl® CG Smoothers Pressed Powder. I have used CoverGirl® Pressed Powder for decades! It was the first powder I ever used and I started using it when I was in my 20's and, trust me, that was a long time ago! I have tried other brands but have always come back to CoverGirl®. It takes away the shine and leaves me looking perfectly finished!

These are my favorite products:

·         Olay Regenerist® Micro-Sculpting Cream™ is a moisturizer that penetrates deep into your skin’s surface layers to fight the look of fine lines and wrinkles
o   Reveals brighter, younger-looking skin
o   Gives you visible wrinkle results starting day 1 (reduces the appearance of lines and boost hydration and brightness)
o   Reduces the look of 10 years of wrinkles in 4 weeks (makes skin noticeably firmer and improves skin’s elasticity
·         CoverGirl® LashBlast Volume Mascara is designed to max out each and every lash, leaving you with the ultimate big-lash look
o   Has a patented volume-boosting hypoallergenic mascara formula
·         CoverGirl® CG Smoothers Pressed Powder helps minimize the appearance of imperfections for a beautiful, smooth complexion
o   Designed with AquaCurrent Science
o   Is a conditioning formula with chamomile
o   Creates a perfectly finished look that lasts
These are always in my house and I will continue buying them. I also use other CoverGirl® and Olay® products as well. I am one of those people who is a brand loyalist. If I like the product, I will buy it until it is discontinued. And before it is discontinued, I stock up!! I do this because I these products make me look and feel beautiful and why mess with perfection, right?

For the Weak of Bladder ~ Always Discreet Liners! #DiscreetatTarget




Last year, I had some bladder issues. I had never imagined that my bladder would be one of the things to give me problems as I aged. To make a long story short, I had to have 2 procedures. There was a probability it could have been cancer but, thankfully, it wasn't.


But after the procedures, I started noticing that my bladder was weaker than usual. I had to start running to the bathroom more often and had to be careful if I didn't go the minute I felt the need. Yes, this is TMI but that's what happens when you get older.

I had to start thinking about products that could help me. And, I found Always Discreet products. Because Always wants to help everyone, you can find Always Discreet products in liners, pads and underwear. Because my problem is not so bad, I swear by the Always Discreet Liners! I never thought I would have to buy them but I did. When I shop, I love shopping at Target for my supplies.


Now shopping for these products can be a little awkward. I used to be embarrassed about picking up a pack but no longer. Especially when I have heard from friends younger than me who also have weak bladders like myself. If you feel embarrassed, Target has a great subscription service! It's easy to sign up and you can them have the products delivered to your house. Plus, you will get a discount and free delivery! How is easy is that?

I love that I can easily slip Always liners into my purse for emergencies. I keep them handy and since they are small and discreet, I never have to feel awkward. They fit perfectly because they are thin and flexible. And there have been times when I had to give one to a friend. They work and that's why I use them. Unfortunately, it is a fact of life and it is lucky there are products like Always Discreet that make it easier to live with the issue.



I love that Always Discreet absorbs 2x more than you need* so there are no worries about having an accident. Always protects you from bladder leaks so you can feel confident and do what you want. I don't worry any longer. I can dance, laugh and be active. If you feel you need a little extra protection, then head over to Target and pick up some Always Discreet products.
