Happy Friday friends! If you follow my Facebook page you have seen that for the past month I have been doing the #Olay28Day Challenge! I decided to take on this challenge because I sadly started seeing small wrinkles around my eyes and forehead. Yeah for turning 30!
What’s the Challenge?
So the challenge was very straight forward! For 28 days OLAY challenged me to replace my current facial moisturizers and eye creams to exclusively use the Regenerist products in the following two step regimen:
Step 1: AM apply the Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream
Step 2: AM and PM apply Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream
What I liked about this challenge is how easy it was and how it forced me to be intentional about taking care of my skin. Being a busy working Mom limits how much time I can spend on myself. I got into the habit of applying the cream first thing in the morning after brushing my teeth and then right before bedtime. Easy!
Drumroll for Results
One of the reason I took on this challenge was to TEST to see if I could really get younger-looking skin in 28 days. I took the challenge very seriously so I could give you an honest review. I also took before and after photos with no makeup on so we could see the results together. So did I see results? YES.
As you can see by my photos there are clear results on my forehead. This was one of my problem areas so I was so happy to see how much more moisturized and filled in it looked.
The other big result I saw was the moisture level of my skin. I have extremely dry skin so it is very refreshing to find a moisturizer that hydrates my skin without leaving it sticky or oily. I actually even used a little extra before putting on my cover up since it was so light to wear!
I did a little investigating to see WHY the Regenerist creams are so effective. It all boils down to the ingredients they use. Unlike creams that can cost more than $100, the Regenerist creams keeps their ingredients simple. Here is a list of the key ingredients-
- Carob Seed Extract aids in skin repair and regeneration according to in vitro and in vivo testing
- Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) boosts cell turnover and maintains skin’s moisture barrier
- Amino-peptide (pal-KTKKS) helps decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Panthenol (Vitamin B5) soothes and moisturizes the skin
- Vitamin E is an oil-soluble anti-oxidant which protects against free radical damage
- Olivem is a derivative of olive oil which has been modified to increase the penetration of anti-aging
- ingredients into the skin’s stratum corneum
- Glycerin and Hyaluronic Acid, powerful humectants with intense miniaturization properties
