This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Olay. Thank you for supporting the brands we love as they support us.
If you have been following along with me on Instagram, you already know that I have been taking the #Olay28Day Challenge. I wanted to go ahead and give you all the details.
There is nothing like the morning after a long night, to make you realize you just might want to take your skincare to the next level. You look in the mirror, and just like that you look and feel a tiny bit older. Your eyes look tired and your skin looks a bit dehydrated. That’s where I was at the beginning of this challenge.
The challenge was to shake up my current skincare routine and replace it with the Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream and the Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream for 28 days. The idea behind it being that I would see real results. My skin needed a change and I was ready to find products I could count on.
The Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream is one we’ve chatted about before and one I love. Not only is it an awesome anti-aging cream but it’s also a hydrating powerhouse. It’s anti-aging moisturizing formula penetrates deep into skin’s surface to improve texture and elasticity. My skin definitely feels more hydrated when I get up in the morning. Being someone who has such dry skin, usually whatever I put on doesn’t make it through the night. But with the Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream, I’ve witnessed my skin still moisturized after a nights rest. It hydrates skin better than ten of the top creams – even the $440 cream – tested by Good Housekeeping. I am definitely finding that to be true.
The Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream was a new to me product at the beginning of this challenge. I love that it’s a creamier product. I was really excited about this one because it fights wrinkles, puffy eyes, and dark circles in an instant. I don’t get enough sleep, so puffy eyes is something I notice pretty regularly and, of course, with aging comes the wrinkles. I’ve already started noticing a differences, when I apply this my puffy eyes instantly go away. I look more awake and refreshed after each use. I’ve used this morning and night, but my favorite time to use it is in the morning before makeup because it contains Olay’s color-correcting technology that acts as a touch of concealer. So if you’re struggling with dark circles, this can help you conceal them as well as combat them in the long term.
I’m a self-proclaimed beauty junkie and I have tried it all. From super high-end, crazy expensive anti-aging creams to drugstore options. And you do not, I repeat, do not have to spend the big bucks to achieve beautiful skin. These two products are going to stay in my routine even after the challenge ends.
As seen on Instagram, this was my skin prior to starting this challenge. I have a few blemishes, some redness, but my main concern was really the puffiness under my eyes as well as lack of hydration. You can’t really see how dehydrated my skin is in a photograph but I feel like when you see the after you’ll understand because you’ll see how much plumper it looks because it’s so moisturized. Using these products has really streamlined my routine. The eye cream especially is something I am so excited about. I love how my makeup looks after using it because of the way it adds a touch of concealer and I don’t have to pile on the makeup.
Now, you can see the changes in my skin. You can see that my skin looks plumper, this is a direct result of hydration. When my skin is dehydrated it tends to look duller and almost sunken in. I’ve also noticed from looking between the two photos that the wrinkles around my eyes have started to become less noticeable and my under eye area is a lot less puffy.
I am so happy with the results, it’s such an easy daily habit to add into my routine that I plan to continue to use both the Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream and the Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream as a regular part of my skincare routine.
