28 Days. When was the last time you did something consecutively for 28 days?
If not, have you ever thought about what you can accomplish in 28 days? Or, what would happen if you did something every day for 28 days in a row?
I’m always one to get excited about being challenged, and happier when the challenge I’m participating in is beneficial to my skin. Recently, I was fortunate enough to participate in the Olay 28-Day challenge to show how their products can show results, after just day one. Olay is a worldwide leader in skin care and has been a trusted brand for women for over 60 years, so I was excited to participate!
Sometimes in my hectic life, it’s hard to get consistency down, so I knew that this would certainly be a challenge for me from the get-go. The challenge consisted of me swapping out my usual eye cream and moisturizers with Olay Total Effects Moisturizer with SPF 15, and Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel. My morning routine consisted of applying both products, and then at night just applying the Deep Hydrating Eye Gel before going to bed. I am happy to share that I never went one day without applying both products to my face – so challenge accomplished!
The two products I added to my skincare regime for this opportunity:
Olay Total Effects Moisturizer with SPF 15 is a creamy, fragrance-free, vitamin-rich moisturizer that deeply hydrates to nourish while replenishing the skin’s moisture barrier. This moisturizer provides 7 benefits in 1: replenishes moisture, evens skin tone and appearance, enhances brightness, visibly smooths fine lines and wrinkles, minimizes the look of pores, restores firmness, visibly reduces dark spots. With all these benefits in one product, it eliminates an excess of product, making life a whole lot easier! Using this for 28 days not only added moisture, but the results from this product that were more noticeable included how brightened my face appeared, and the redness was toned down.
Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel helps hydrate tired eyes and plumps delicate skin. It uses a fast absorbing gel formula, with peptides, pro-vitamin B5 & cucumber extract to help quench skin for a long-lasting hydration. The cooling formula also helps fight visible signs of fatigue and under eye dehydration lines, which is right my alley since I have not had a night’s sleep in 7 months since our second child was born. This product seriously has made my under eyes appear more awake! Not to mention that when you apply this, it’s like a mini refresh and you actually feel more awake, in my opinion. It’s a great way to start the day!
My before photo:
This photo was taken on the day before I started the Olay 28-Day Challenge. This photo and the ones posted below are all completely UNTOUCHED, unfiltered and I’m wearing no makeup! For me, it’s a bit nerve wracking to post such a raw photo, because I’ve always struggled with not having “good” skin, but necessary to show the real results.
My After Photos – 100% untouched!
Before vs. After – Do you see the results?!
In summary, the biggest results that were easy to spot for me personally, was that even though I felt tired, I noticed that underneath my eyes it wasn’t so apparent. My entire face looked brightened and healthier! I’m hoping that the photo above shows you how with zero make up on, and no photo editing, I don’t have dark circles around my eyes, broadcasting my tiredness to the world! This day in particular I was extra tired. Some days I feel like it all comes to a head at some point, and I just felt exhausted.
I also noticed that I have some redness throughout my face that I can’t even explain where it came from, but by day 28, one side of my face had a more even tone. It was refreshing and exciting to see results after doing something religiously from day to day! Adding these two new products was easy and effective! I will be sticking to these products in my regime from now on!
With that said, I, along with Olay, invite YOU to start your very 28-Day Challenge today!
