Simple Skincare Regimen | Olay 28 Day Challenge

November 30, 2017

Thanks to Olay for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions in the post are my own.

What does your skincare routine look like? From barely putting on some moisturizer to using about a dozen different products at a time, mine has varied quite a lot over the years. Ideally, I’d love to just stick to a simple routine, especially now more than ever, cuz 1. Being a new mom, I’ll blindly sign up for anything that is genuine and that doesn’t have me spend more than a couple of minutes at a time 2. It’s always a good idea to use a minimum number of products, especially when a product or two can give you some amazing results that a dozen different products may or may not give 3.  Why waste money on expensive products when a good skincare routine doesn’t mean you need to spend hundreds of dollars, products available for a reasonable price at my drugstore is all I need.  

As excited as I am about Fall, I am not thrilled about the many skin problems it brings with it! Though there are tons of skincare products available in the market, finding the right one is never easy. A while ago, when I looked at my face closely in the mirror (ever used one with 5x magnification?, it brutally highlights the deepest and darkest secrets of your skin, sigh!), I realized that I have extremely dry flaky skin on my face accompanied by fine lines, wrinkles and puffiness under my eyes.  The question was how do I fix them?

So, I gave several new things a try this season to take better care of my skin and health in general (read more about my recent 28 Day Food Challenge and Weight Loss Journey). One of them was joining the Olay 28 Day Challenge, I have been a fan of Olay products for the longest time and I was pretty excited to see the results of this challenge. As part of the challenge, I replaced my current moisturizer with Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream and Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream (honestly, I've never used an eye cream before). These products claimed to reduce fine lines and wrinkles starting Day 1, and promised to give me younger looking skin in just 28 days. I was as skeptical as the girl next door, but couldn't wait to give them a try and see what the fuss was all about.

And here’s my simple, quick and effective daily skincare regimen..
AM apply the Olay Regenerist Multi Sculpting Cream Total with SPF 30
AM and PM apply Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream
Massage into the skin, and done, how easy is that!

The Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream has made my face feel soft, supple and hydrated - Goodbye  dry and flaky skin! No matter which harsh face wash or face scrub I used, a bit of the Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream took great care of my skin. And given that I hate products which hydrate my skin but leave my face looking all greasy and clog up my pores, this is a perfect pick for me.

Having never used an eye cream before, I was a bit hesitant to put the Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream so close to my eyes. But with the very first use, all my apprehension about using an eye cream disappeared. The Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream is so lightweight, non greasy (as I said, I can’t stand products that make my face look like a greased baking pan) and did not cause any irritation to the eyes. And along with my apprehension, those fine lines, puffiness and wrinkles around my eyes have started to disappear too.  

And now that I have completed the Olay 28 Day Challenge, I am super happy to inform you all that I am more than pleased with the results of using just these two products (I mean, just the two products), The Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream and Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream. No more dry, flaky or greasy skin and no more puffy eyes or significant fine lines! There's nothing better than waking up to a healthier face every day, amirite?

Before starting The Olay 28 Day Challenge, puffy eyes.

Before starting The Olay 28 Day Challenge, significant fine lines under my eyes.

After completing The Olay 28 Day Challenge - bye bye dry and flaky skin, and no more puffy eyes or significant fine lines.
P.S: I tried to recreate my look of course ;)
