Olay Regenerist Luminous Overnight Mask

Overnight sleep in masks are definitely  a trend, one we've picked up from Asia.   It's solid idea- sleep and moisturize/treat/plump skin while you catch your zzzzzs. And you don't peel these off. They absorb into skin and then you wash in the morning.

Earlier this year Olay brought out  Regenerist Luminous Overnight Mask .This, like most sleep ins, is a gel formula. It's has a waterlight feel that sinks in fast and feels refreshing on . There is a light herbal scent.

The mask has light moisture and after using in the AM my skin looked smooth , plumped a bit and was well hydrated enough. I have combo skin though. If you have dry to extra dry skin it might not quite enough moisture for you.

The tub size is large at 4.5 oz and since you don't need a lot , it will last long. I can see this being a nice after sun product in Summer  as well.

Ingredients include Niacinamide  which helps skin retain moisture and soothes inflammation. Mulberry Root Extract for brightening, Glycerin for hydration and Vitamin E for an antioxidant boost.

Olay Regenerist Luminous Overnight Mask is sugg. retail $25.99

Bella By Vince Camuto

The late , great designer Vince Camuto's name continues on in the fashion and beauty worlds .  Bella, the new fragrance is a ray of sunshine and warmth.

Bella is a sunny floral loaded up with nectarine blossom and peach nectar  ( but it's not too sweet),  the white floral of jasmine and a touch of citrus with bergamot and lemon.  Light musk, blonde woods and white amber anchor the drydown.

 It is very much a fragrance that brings to mind Spring and  even more so, Summer.  It's not too light but not strong and has good sillage. A little sexy and feminine,  it makes me think of shorts , sandals and beach towels.

The bottle is the  brand's signature look with a peach ribbon accent.

Bella Vince Camuto is $78 for 3.4 oz EDP.

Dove Go Fresh Revitalize -Mandarin & Tiare Flower

Have you sprang into Spring yet? Dove's new super sunny citrus scent, Mandarin & Tiare Flower will take you there.

I am big fan of Dove's body washes. This winter my skin stayed  really soft and moisturized mainly thanks to two products, one being my Dove Deep Moisture Nutrium body wash.  I didn't need to use lotion every day but when I needed a boost the other big help was The Body Shop Body Butters.  I'll keep it going with this new scent and since my old one is almost empty , it's good timing .

Mandarin & Tiare smells wonderful . It's soft and doesn't linger long but is a nice citrus-y ( and you know I love my citrus)  fragrance. The mix of mandarin & tiare is a good one , it's  more orange than tiare to my nose with just a touch of the tropical flower.

Both body wash and soap are available now  .

Dove Go Fresh Revitalize Mandarin &  Tiare Body Wash is sugg. retail $ 6.99
Dove Go Fresh Revitalize Mandarin & Tiare Twin Pack Beauty Bar is sugg. retail $ 3.79
