I Used Olay for 28 Days and Here is What Happened...


If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I have been participating in the #Olay28Day Challenge. Olay challenged me to switch my skincare routine to solely Olay Luminous products for 28 days. For the last 28 days in the morning and at night, I have been using Olay Luminous Micellar Water, Miracle Boost Concentrate, Light Hydrating Lotion and Overnight Mask. One of the reasons I was excited to take this challenge is because my mom, who seriously has the most amazing skin, told me she used Olay for years. Olay is a worldwide leader in skin care and has been trusted by women for over 60 years. In fact, I have heard so many women praise Olay in my life that I knew it was a must try.

I approached this challenge already loving my skin, but in the hopes of making my skin even better.  If you are like me, you love a fresh face and a great glow, but you don't want an oily face in the process.  The key to the glow simply begins with skincare.  So, I began the #Olay28Day Challenge hoping to achieve two goals.  My two goals are below:

1.  I wanted hydrated and glowing skin, but without the oil.
2.  I wanted to continue embracing a fresh face and reduce my hyper pigmentation.

My First Use

As I was preparing to begin the #Olay28Day Challenge, one thing I immediately loved about Olay's Luminous line was the packaging. I am a sucker for gorgeous packaging. I love that Olay gives you a beautiful package with an affordable price. I also love the fact that I can run to a local store or to purchase them. I am so used to using a cleanser and toner in my daily skincare routine that the process was definitely new for me since neither is a part of the routine.

I enjoy that Olay has a step by step process. In the morning, I used Olay Luminous Micellar Water, Miracle Boost Concentrate and Light Hydrating Lotion. In the evening, I followed the same first two steps yet switched the Light Hydrating Lotion for the Overnight Mask. I immediately noticed with the first use how soft my skin was. My skin felt soft without being greasy.

After Two Weeks

Since I am so used to a step by step skincare routine, it did not take me long to pick up how to use Olay's skincare products. Within a few days, I had the routine down. I even traveled to the beach and kept up with my routine. After two weeks, I could not help but notice how soft my skin became. I also noticed a slight improvement in my hyper pigmentation on my chin. The only issue I experienced was due to my combination skin and hot temperatures, I often had an oily face by midday.

My 28 Day Results and Thoughts

The 28 days went by quickly! The routine was easy to keep up with. The Olay Luminous Micellar Water was an instant favorite because of how well it removed makeup at night. I also really enjoyed the Luminous Miracle Boost Concentrate because it instantly softened my skin with each use. I also appreciated that these products did not have heavy fragrance and were extremely gentle on my sensitive skin. 

Did I achieve my two skincare goals?  I did notice a slight lightening in my hyper pigmentation after the first two weeks.  Although I did not see additional change after those weeks, I love how soft my skin has become!  I truly embraced rocking a fresh face throughout the challenge.  My skin sometimes became oily by midday, but this may due to my combination skin.

I would love to see how these products work for you!  I encourage you to take the #Olay28Day Challenge and see the results for yourself.
