I love a good beauty and cocktail pairing – which is why I was tickled pink when I saw Olay’s presentation at the P&G Beauty Digital Studio event last week!
To celebrate the latest addition to the award-winning Olay Fresh Outlast collection, Olay teamed up with amazing lifestyle guru Maureen Petrosky (LOVE her) to concoct cocktail recipes inspired by the premium scented body washes.
The lucky influencers (myself included) in attendance at the event got to sample “mocktail” versions of these luscious sips, but of course, I had to track down the real deal recipes to feature on the blog. The drinks are DELICIOUS and super refreshing if you’re looking for something to perk you up – very similar to the effect of Olay’s energizing body washes!
My fav? The new Fresh Outlast Energizing Lime and White Tea body wash (and margarita). Read on for the scoop and definitely give Maureen’s recipes a try. You won’t be disappointed!
