I am very inconsistent when it comes to sticking to one skincare regime and using the same skincare products frequently so when Olay approached me to take part in their 28 Day Challenge, I was a little anxious. However, I am always looking for new products to try out to better my skin so I was keen to take Olay up on this challenge.
My daily routine for 28 days was as follows:
- I washed my face daily with the Olay Total Effects Face Wash with exfoliating particles followed by the Olay Total Effects Toner day & night.
- I then followed with the Olay Eye Firming Serum and Olay Ultimate Eye Perfecting Cream that targets wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles.
- Finally, I finished up my routine with the Olay Total Effects UV Day Cream and Olay Total Effects Night Cream in the evenings.
Along with the Olay products that I received in the media drop was a stack of cards, 28 daily tasks that Olay challenged us to complete. These included taking time off your phone, spending time doing something creative, an act of kindness, calling an old friend and other lovely challenges that we quite often overlook or forget to do due to our busy schedules.
It was really therapeutic taking time to take care of my skin as well and my mental health and well being for the 28 days. I loved paying attention to my internal and external changes each week. I noticed that my eyes weren’t as puffy as they usually are, due to my late nights during the weekend, my skin was also always soft and supple throughout the day which absolutely loved. I also noticed a change in my overall mood, because I was taking time out each day to do something nice for someone else or something out of the ordinary, I felt lighter and less stressed and overwhelmed.
During winter, my skin tends to be a little drier than how it usually is during the Summer so I really loved how hydrated the Olay moisturizer kept my skin. With other skin products, I find that my skin would usually only feel moisturized for a couple of hours but with the Olay moisturiser, once the creams have been applied in the morning, I was set for the day.
My favorite moisturizer from the skincare products from the range was the Olay Total Effects Whips Light As Air Moisturiser 7 Benefits! It’s lightweight and super hydrating. The light textured cream transforms into liquid once applied on the skin to enable optimal absorbtion of anti-ageing ingredients to the skin thus leaving your skin looking youthful and healthier! I used this moistuirser mostly when I knew that I would be applying make-up that day as it also doubles up as a primer.
I would recommend the Olay Total Effects range to anyone looking for skincare products that will give their skin a better overall appearance and extra moisture. Dischem is still running an incredible special here on the various Olay Whips moisturisers, so act fast before stocks run out!
If youn have used Olay please let me know what you think. I genuinely have no choice but to stan.
