And no I’m not talking about the same thing as the Wu-Tang clan…
CREAM as in skin cream. As we get older its important to moisturize (even if you have super oily skin). For the past two weeks I have been using two creams, one for morning and one for night time to keep my skin looking A1. So this is not quite a product review but more like a progress report. LOL
Olay Fresh Effect Dew Over Moisturizing Gel
This moisturizer is a light weight gel concoction that goes on light but moisturizes my face like a dream. I love it because it’s light and does not feel heavy under my foundation. It’s oil free and it contains white tea and honey suckle.

Give your skin a splash of 24-hour hydration. This lightweight moisturizing gel is oil-free and won’t clog pores. Formulated with a powder, it absorbs quickly and makes skin look less oily.

With beauty products, the ones that are listed at the top of the description, generally are higher in concentration. FYI. Overall I give it, two thumbs up
Garnier Fructis Nutritioniste Skin Renew Radiance Moisture Cream
This cream I apply at night. Its heavier with is great because your skin is prone to absorb products better at night. I use this cream to help me with skin tone and hyperpigmentation.
** Description From the Website**
Radiance Moisture Cream. It boosts your skin’s surface-cell renewal and provides intense hydration for radiant and smooth skin with reduced fine lines.
The ingredients were not listed on the website and I don’t have the jar on hand
Overall I’m pretty happy with this cream. My skin appears to look brighter when I wake up in the morning. I would like to try other night time creams to see if its more effective.
Both creams are under $20 and can be found at any drugstore.
