Olive + M: Clean Skincare that Works!

Disclosure: I received products from Olive + M to help facilitate this review. (All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

I was recently given the opportunity to try products from the Olive + M line and was so excited to do so! Let me first tell you that I love their mission. They were created from the belief that what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in your body. To me, that is so important! Olive + M believes in being radiant by nature. 

Now, I have to be honest with you, I was a bit skeptical at first since I knew that these products were oil-based. My skin tends to be on the oily side at times during the summer months, so I was afraid that these products would make them even more oily. Boy, was I wrong! Even though all of the Olive + M products are olive oil-based products that contain natural, plant-based ingredients, these factors all help to create a brighter complexion while diminishing those fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, they help to protect against environmental stressors like pollution, and they even help to fight acne and unwanted bacteria. 

Olive + M Cleansing Oil– This oil dissolves dirt and bacteria on your face while nourishing your skin with a natural blend of antioxidants, vitamins, omegas and amino acids. I also love how it smells! It is filled with the aroma of warm, fresh floral and herbal notes with an airy citrus finish.

One of the things that I noticed right away with the cleansing oil was just how much impurities that it removed. It really does a fantastic job of getting rid of makeup and all of the buildup from each day, without much effort on your part. 

Olive + M Face Oil– I know what you are probably thinking, you are going to moisturize your skin with face oil? That was my reaction at first as well, but let me tell you, this product is amazing! In fact, Olive + M Face Oil is their number one best seller! To me, that says a lot about a product! This Face Oil is light, natural formula is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, omegas and amino acids, and it leaves your complexion soft and glowing. In addition, it also smells so divine!  It is full of rich notes of a blend of green, floral notes and light woody facets with aromatic, minty touches. I really love how this product makes my face feel. It is not oily or greasy and dries to a nice dewy appearance. If you try one product from Olive + M, I highly recommend that you give this one a try! 

Olive + M Body Oil– Who doesn’t love a good body oil? This one from Olive + M is fantastic! Olive + M Body Oil is a concentrated blend of pink grapefruit, bergamot and clary sage. Yes, it smells heavenly! I like to apply Olive + M Body Oil right after I get out of the shower. It leaves my skin feeling hydrated and moisturized. You can even apply a few drops in a hot bath if you prefer. I haven’t tried that yet, but plan to very soon! 

In addition to ordering from Olive + M directly on their website, I am so happy to tell you that Olive + M is now available at your local Target! The next time that you are there, be sure to take a look at the products for yourself. I am certain that you will love them as much as I have!

My FASTer Way to Fat Loss Update

(All posts may contain affiliate links and/or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

                                                           BEFORE                                             NOW

It has been a little while since I have given you an update on my FASTer Way to Fat Loss, so I thought that this would be a good time to do so! I think that the results in the picture above speak for themselves, don’t you? You can see my previous posts HERE and HERE.

If you have been following me from the beginning, you will remember that I started my first round back at the end of June. Since then I have lost 24 inches and over 12 pounds. I have never felt better in my life, while eating more food than I ever thought possible. I love working out and planning the next day’s meals. The FASTer Way to Fat Loss is a lifestyle change it is not a diet. If you are tired of yo-yo dieting, counting calories, and every other gimmick on the market, this program is for you! If I can do it, anyone can do it! I was so tired of looking in the mirror and not liking the picture. I was tired of being stuck in a rut. I was tired of not having confidence in how I looked. I am so glad that I took this journey and I don’t plan on looking back! I still have more goals to crush and I know that I will get there!

YOU are worth the investment. Your husband and children are worth the investment. Self Care is so important and when we realize that, it makes a huge difference! Give yourself the gift of a new you. You will gain such confidence that you never thought possible all while seeing crazy awesome results!

Since my initial round, I have been sticking to the program on my own and still seeing some amazing results! In fact, of the 24 inches that I have lost 10 have been after my round! I am still a work in progress, and can’t wait to see even more results! Remember, it is all about progress over perfection!

It’s not hard and you don’t have to be perfect. ⁠You won’t starve or restrict foods or spend hours in the gym. It is all in the program! I am satisfied and feel full and I don’t crave sugars or junk food. Do I still splurge? Yes, Do I still enjoy treats? Yes, it is all about learning to fuel your body with the right types of foods. One good thing to remember is Memories over Macros. Enjoy those parties and family get togethers with no guilt. 

My coach Stephanie is amazing and will be there to help you every step of the way! And, she has a new round starting this Monday September 23! It will probably be her last round before the holiday, so get in shape now and enjoy the holidays without feeling guilty.

GO HERE to check out the FASTer Way to Fat Loss and to sign up for the round that begins September 23. If you have any questions, please email me at: mysweetsavings@gmail.com
