‘”Sex and the City” Star’s Beauty Secret Revealed

‘”Sex and the City” Star’s Beauty Secret Revealed

by -

Award-winning actress Kim Cattrall, best known for her role as Samantha Jones on "Sex & the City" is letting the world in on one beauty secret that keeps her looking so svelte. Cattrall swears by Procter and Gamble’s Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging body lotion, and she should know a thing or two about defying the aging process after portraying a vixen of a cougar on TV and on the big screen.


Cattrall and Olay take on a pretty hefty challenge when they claim that this product will leave your skin looking younger after only one use, help to improve skin’s elasticity in seven days, and provide radiant skin in just one month. I’m not one to back down from a challenge, and while I may only be 24 years old, it’s never too early to start preserving your appearance.


My experience with this lotion wasn’t as drastic as Cattrall’s. I normally don’t stray too far from my regular moisturizing routine (hey, if it’s not broken, don’t fix it) but I figured "why not?" and gave it a try. The lotion I typically use every day after I shower is an unscented creamy but not greasy lotion that will last me from morning to night.


One plus to Olay’s lotion is that the scent is light and subtle but strong enough that you don’t need to use any additional perfume, and I really like the scent as well. A drawback to the product, though, is that I found myself having to reapply at night and having to apply the lotion so much I felt like I went through three-fourths of the bottle within a week’s time.


As for any anti-aging effects, I didn’t see any miracles or signs of a magic potion. It’s been proven dry skin ages faster and appears to look older, so naturally when you moisturize your skin instantly appears more luscious and youthful. That is the only "anti-aging" I noticed. So all in all, if you are looking for a very affordable and instant gratification lotion that smells great, I recommend this for you. As for me, I’m going to stick with my regular lotion.
