Emily's Favorite Things (epic edition, part V)

Welcome to Part V, the final part in a five part series on Emily's Favorite Things. Let me know if you have loved/hated my picks in the comment section. 

5.) Olay Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir

Oh wow, something not food-related. Awesome!

I love this stuff so much. I really like Olay's Regenerist line of products, but this one in particular is quite a little miracle. I don't use it every night, but it is like having a gentle mini facial/super light chemical peel. It works wonders, is not harsh or abrasive, and doesn't smell like wacky chemicals!

I find that when my face is getting a little broken out, if I slap this on at night after washing a way what little makeup I wear, I am almost always impressed by how much clearer my skin is in the morning.

I mean, don't get me wrong, if you already have giant zits about to pop, it's not going to eliminate them, but it does wonders for white washing those clogged pores that soap/water/exfoliating beads/washcloths/astringent/lotions somehow don't touch. For me, it seems to work better as an all-over face product than even spot checking with salicylic acid does.

I highly recommend trying it. I think Olay makes some of the best actually affordable--the difference between hundreds of dollars and tens of dollars--face products that work like they claim to (but you do have to experiment a little to find the right products for your skin type).  Plus, they usually do rebates each quarter where you can receive $10.00 off a $50.00 purchase, so check on that one often.   I've done this so many times, I can't even count and often find I use the extra money either on food or more skin products (I'm sure Olay would be happy to hear that).  Click here for more info about this product.

Well, folks, there you have it.  Since these are my favorite things, I have particularly enjoyed the journey we have taken together over the past five days.  Now, get on to sharing with me some of your favorite things!  :)

I have been wanting to try some of Olay's Regenerist line, and this really makes me want to even more. I especially want to see if they have something that will help me get rid of this pregnancy mask any quicker!
