Recently I was invited to take the Olay 28 Day Challenge and try out two of their most popular products — Olay Total Effects Moisturizer with SPF 15 and Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel — to prove that using Olay can leave you with visibly healthy skin.
I shared my initial thoughts over on my Facebook Page when I was at my half-way mark, and today I’m ready to share my final results.
For 28 days, I replaced my usual facial moisturizer and eye cream with the following 2-Step regimen:
- Step 1: AM apply the Olay Total Effects Moisturizer with SPF 15
- Step 2: AM and PM apply Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel
I was immediately impressed with the effects of both of these products. I tend to have dark circles and bags under my eyes — probably from not drinking enough water. Well, that and gravity. Let’s face it, this over-40 skin is just not the same as it used to be!
I love how the Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel has a cooling sensation that helps alleviate some of the puffiness I always struggle with in the mornings, and it instantly brightens the eye area.
It goes on clear and gradually sinks into my skin. I like to give it some time to settle in before applying my moisturizer.
I’ve always been very conscientious about washing my face and moisturizing at night, but I confess I sometimes skip it in the mornings. For the past 28 days, I’ve been applying the Olay Total Effects Moisturizer with SPF 15 along with the Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel every morning, whether or not I wear makeup, and I’ve definitely seen an improvement in my skin by using a daytime moisturizer consistently.
I feel like my face is brighter and softer, and I’ve noticed that I don’t have any flakiness throughout the day, which sometimes can be an issue for me this time of year.
What I really like about this product, though, is how it preps my face for makeup. It immediately smooths my skin and evens out some of the redness I struggle with so my makeup goes on easier and looks better. Plus it has the SPF so there’s no need for a sunscreen.
The other thing I like about it is that it’s fragrance free. I’m not a fan of skincare products with a strong scent, and even some milder products bother me, but this one is completely free of any scent at all, which I love.
Here’s the picture I took on Day One of the #Olay28Day Challenge, completely makeup free. You can see that I have some redness and discoloration that I like to cover up.
And here I am 28 days in. This picture was taken immediately after applying the two Olay products. Pardon the morning hair, but I think you can see that my skin looks smoother and brighter and less blotchy. It definitely feels smooth and soft, and the moisturizer leaves me with a nice matte finish that is perfect for makeup application.
The best part about this skincare regimen, though, is how simple it is. The Total Effects formula is vitamin-packed to give you 7 signs of visibly healthy skin with a simple skincare regimen that is easy to incorporate into your morning routine.
