Oh the things you discover about celebrities when they sign up with a brand as a spokes-face. For example, as she makes her debut as the first global celebrity ambassador for Olay, People Magazine reports that Katie Holmes doesn't always wash her face before bed.

According to, Toledo-born Katie Holmes is happy to be the new global celebrity face of Olay because the company is based in her home state of Ohio. "It feels like home to be working with them," says the 35-year-old actress, who is mom to 8-year-old Suri and of course, an ex-Mrs. Tom Cruise. She's billed as the first global celebrity amabassador for the entire range of Olay; if you remember, Carrie Underwood was a celebrity face of Olay Complete in 2010. (Underwood is now the celebrity spokes-face for Almay cosmetics; she also launched a collaboration with Nicole by OPI.)

People also reports the former Bobbi Brown spokesperson has just one confessed skincare failing: Katie Holmes doesn't always wash her face before bed. Well, she's not alone, right? The actress doesn't seem to wear makeup on her days off anyway; she's frequently photographed bare-faced, which I think is cool. In the same piece, though, Katie Holmes says she counts Olay Regenerist cream cleanser as part of her beauty-inside-and-out regimen. That would be the Olay Regenerist Luminous Brightening Cream Cleanser ($9.99 at, which also contains microbeads for gentle exfoliation.

creamy cleanser for radiantly clean skin?

Most often I use a micelle cleanser to remove the day from my face, then follow with a generous misting of La Roche-Posay thermal water ($9.99 to $12.99 at, Vichy thermal water ($9.50 to $14 at or Avene thermal water ($18 at I wipe off the excess and proceed directly to my stash of serums. In the shower, I'll use a gel cleanser. But for about a week a while back, I used a cream cleanser for the first time in ages and realized something noteworthy: creamy cleansers seem to leave skin... well, luminous. Same thing with oil cleansers. My complexion looks radiantly clean and feels softer too, after I've gently massaged a creamy cleanser all over my face and rinsed thoroughly.

Time to switch my in-shower facial cleanser, at least!

Do you always wash your face before bed? Do you ever use a creamy cleanser? Does your skin look different after cleansing depending on the facewash formula you use? Oh! And what do you think re: Katie Holmes + Olay?
