Southern Mom Loves: My #Olay28Day Challenge Results + a $40 Olay Discount Code!

My #Olay28Day Challenge Results + a $40 Olay Discount Code!

Monday, October 23, 2017

This is a #sponsored post with Olay, but all opinions are my own.

For those that haven't been following the Facebook posts, I took the #Olay28Day Challenge! Olay promises that you can get visibly healthy, younger-looking skin in just 28 days without breaking the bank with high-priced creams and lotions. I used 2 uber-affordable Olay products every day for 28 days and I'm ready to show you my results!

If you have been following on Facebook or reading the blog for a while, you know that I already love Olay, so it wasn't a huge leap of trust for me to take the challenge. I tried the Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream a while back and talked about it on the blog.

The results were amazing. I've tried a lot of products over the years and I've never had such drastic results in such a short amount of time. I could see improvements from day 1 and I loved using the cream, too.

So the challenge was a great way to show everyone what the Micro Sculpting Cream could do long-term, but there was also a product in the challenge that I had never used before and I was intrigued by the promises.

The other product in the challenge was the Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream. It promises instantly younger-looking eyes with a 3-in-1 de-circler, de-wrinkler, and de-puffer.

It touts a powerful formula, supercharged with peptides and vitamins, that works instantly with Olay's color-correcting technology to renew skin's surface over time, and reduces puffiness when massaged onto skin.

You guys, if there is any product I needed to work miracles, it was this one. My constant sinus problems leave me waking up with terrible bags and circles, and over time, these have developed into extra-deep wrinkles where the bottom of the bags hit. It's been brutal to my eye area and I needed some help, stat!

The #Olay28Day Challenge

The challenge works like this:

For 28 days, you should replace your current facial moisturizers and eye creams to exclusively use Olay products in the following 2-step regimen:

          Step 1: AM apply the Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream
          Step 2: AM and PM apply Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream 

The regimen is so simple, so easy that it's a breeze to keep up with. Two products? I can do that.

The Products

Here is a bit more about the products included in the challenge and what I thought of each one:

The Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream. It promises younger-looking skin in just 28 days. I've used this one before so I know that it starts working right away and I saw a difference from day 1. It immediately plumps the skin to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and hydrates better than the super-expensive department store creams I've tried over the years.

It has a barely-there light, fresh scent and the cream is rich and silky feeling. It was refreshing and incredibly moisturizing. I have combination skin and it wasn't too much for the oily bits but was super-moisturizing on the dry bits. My skin felt comfortable all day and I didn't have any dryness or flakiness at all. 

I absolutely saw an improvement in my skin after the first use; You'll have to keep reading to see the "afters"!

The Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream. It promises younger-looking eyes from day 1. It touts reduced appearance of crow's feet, reduced puffiness, reduced dark circles, and better hydration that the #1 prestige eye cream. Those are big promises. I've tried a lot of eye creams that didn't deliver, so I was excited to try Olay Eyes.

I was a bit worried when I opened the jar and saw that it was tinted. The cream looked a bit too dark for my skin tone and I wondered if it would work for both very light and very dark skin tones. I tried the cream and it disappeared into my skin; You couldn't even tell that the product itself was tinted, but I could see an immediate improvement in the redness of my eye area and my complexion looked more even. I can see how this would blend with all skin tones.

Like the Micro Sculpting Cream, this one is silky and moisturizing, but not heavy. It doesn't have a scent, which is a must, especially for sensitive eyes. I saw an immediate improvement in my puffiness. I have to say that it's pretty awesome and you'll see just how awesome in my "afters".

The Results!

So I faithfully followed the guidelines of the #Olay28Day Challenge for exactly 28 days, so let's see the results!

Before | After 28 Days

Before | After 28 Days
I noticed my skin feels more hydrated and comfortable 24/7 and my lines have softened considerably; They're not as deep and harsh-looking as they were before. It may just be me, but I feel like my whole complexion has evened out as well. I'm having way more "good skin days" than I ever have!

It's difficult to see slow changes over a long period of time, so taking photos before and after really showed what the cream actually did for me. I 100% recommend that if you start a regimen that you break out your camera. It's the perfect way to see if you're wasting your money or if you've finally found your "forever" products.
