“Fight the seven signs of aging” I can hear the commercial in my head right now! Aging… that’s a hard truth to swallow… why oh why can’t I pretend my skin is still 20 years old??!

I’ve always known the importance of taking care of your body’s largest organ. Drink plenty of water, never wear your makeup to bed, wash your face, don’t smoke, be gentle around your eyes, eat healthy and wear a good moisturizer (don’t forget your neck too) were all things drilled into my head from before my first zit popped.

You see… my mom is beautiful. Like a drop-dead-gorgeous babe. I’m serious. HAWTY! Check her out for yourself if you don’t believe me. I have a newspaper clipping around here somewhere from when she modeled in her early 20’s…

a candid shot I quickly snapped of her this past summer

She is 70! You heard me right, SEVENTY. Why does she look decades younger?? She takes care of her skin, always has and always will. What she puts into her body is also as important to her as what she puts on her body. She can also out-run me any day… heck who am I kidding, she can out-walk me!!

At the end of November of last year, I was invited to become a Proctor & Gamble ambassador (#PGMom) and in exchange they’d send me free product to try out and if I liked it, to talk about here on Shasher’s Life.

Before this point I had never tried any kind of anti-aging skincare product. Over the years my mom has sent me various anti-aging products in my Christmas stockings but I’d put them in my bathroom drawer… #indenial. In my welcome package from P&G was a bundle of Olay Total Effects products, and there they sat for a couple of weeks while I came to terms with turning 40… #stillindenial

A couple of weeks ago I was sitting having coffee with a girlfriend when she commented on my skin. She’s known me for 15 years and has seen me at my best of times and at my worst. She noted that my skin had a great glow to it. My daughter has recently commented that my “bags” don’t look as dark as before.  Only my daughter knew I’d started to use a new skincare product.

I started using the full line of Olay Total Effects the week before Christmas and in only a months time a noticeable difference in my skin can be seen by more than just me. P.s. I didn’t solicit the compliments either and if you want to keep them coming… you’re welcome to! πŸ™‚

I’m giving away the same bundle that I’ve been using and will continue to use from now on. You can enter to win via the Rafflecopter at the bottom of this post. My absolute favourite product in the line is the Olay Total Effects Daily Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer Plus Touch of Foundation Cream. It’s like putting on whipped, creamy — I want to say butter but it’s not greasy — my skin loves it!

Olay Total Effects Daily Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer Plus Touch of Foundation Cream provides seven anti-aging benefits including line appearance minimization, nourishing moisturization, subtle appearance firming, brightening, gentle exfoliation, pore appearance refinement and anti-oxidents.  It helps renew, restore and protect from UV rays for aging skin with the added benefit of a sheer foundation for immediate tone improvement.

Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Anti-Aging Eye Cream Line and Dark Circle Minimizing Brush helps to instantly reduce the appearance of darkness under the eye all in one sweep of a brush.  It contains a daily under-eye moisturizer that hydrates to firm skin’s appearance and minimizes the look of fine lines and a hint of tint instantly reduces the appearance of dark circles.

Olay Total Effects Refreshing Citrus Scrub offers an invigorating scrub that cleanses your skin without over-drying.  Formulated with oil-absorbing beads, it gently exfoliates and cleanses throuoghly while the citrus-kissed formula refreshed your skin.

Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting Night Moisturizer provides deep hydration and helps fight signs of aging with a vitamin-rich complex designed to smooth away the appearance of discolouration and age spots as you sleep.

Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting Eye Treatment treats the sensitive and delicate skin under the eye that needs to be treated with TLC.  This treatment diminishes the look of under-eye darkness and helps to fight the seven signs of aging.

Enter to win the above mentioned Olay Total Effects skincare bundle, valued at approx $140! This contest is open to Canadian residents only, you may enter on a multiplicity of #PGMom blogs but can only win once.

Good Luck!
