Old Navy Finds

Old Navy Finds

I have been really impressed with Old Navy lately.  They had a 30% off coupon that you could print on line if you Like them on Facebook.  I know this is Fall stuff and living in S. Fla it will be a while before I will be able to wear these cute items.  But they were all on sale plus the 30%.  I think all in I was around $32 plus tax.  I am really excited about the scarf.  The picture does no show all the great colors that are in the design.  It will work great with brown and black.
Now we wait!

Baller on a Budget: Facial Cleanser

I am a sucker for beauty products. My most recent purchase was the Olay Pro-X Advancing Cleansing System.  I have looked at the comparable product by Clarisonic.    The olay products retails for $30 and the Clairisonic is $149 - $195.  Big difference for this baller on a budget.  I found the Olay product at Target.  I have been using it for about two weeks and have noticed that my skin is softer and not as flaky.

Here is the Clarisonic summary:

The Sonic Skin Cleansing System uses a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to clean, soften and smooth skin. In just 60 seconds, the brush gently, yet thoroughly removes 6X more makeup and 2X more dirt and oil than manual cleansing alone. Removing these impurities has been shown to allow a 61% better absorption of Vitamin C, and better prepares skin for other products.

Here is the Olay Pro-X summary:

Is it time to rethink your daily cleansing routine? Designed by a team of dermatologists along with Olay, the Advanced Cleansing System is as effective as a system sold by skin professionals for nearly $200.* Professionally and clinically designed to cleanse 6 times better**, the Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System also sets your skin up for supersonic anti-aging moisturization.†

Both products have really good reviews.  The one thing I did notice about the Clarisonic is that it charges on a base where the Olay requires batteries.   So you might be changing the batteries a little more with the Olay product.  They both have their own line of cleansers to use with the brush.  I have used what came with the Olay product and then my own cleanser as well.   I am happy with the purchase.
