For those who follow me on Instagram, you now know that I have been participating in the Olay 28 Day Challenge! I just finished the challenge and I’m so excited to give you all an update! I have actually been a very loyal Olay customer my entire life, and was seriously over the moon excited when they reached out to collaborate on the Olay 28 Day Challenge. My mom (even her mother) and my sister all use Olay products, and they are a staple in our skincare routine. My mom is an aesthetician, so I learned from a young age how important taking care of your skin is, especially the types of moisturizers you put on your face in the morning and night. Keep scrolling through the post to read about my experience and see my before/after results with the Olay 28 Day Challenge!
For the challenge, I used the Total Effects Moisturizer with SPF 15 and the Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel. When I washed my face in the morning, I would apply the Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel first and then the Total Effects Moisturizer with SPF 15. I would let them sit while I make breakfast and then proceeded with my makeup routine. At night I would take off my makeup, wash my face and apply the Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel again.
I typically have dry and semi sensitive skin, so I’m really picky about the skincare products I put on my face. Once I find a brand or type of product that works well for my skin, I stay loyal to it, and that is honestly why I love Olay products so much. They are delicate on my skin and I really do see and feel results. When I started the challenge, I was just ending fashion month, my skin was tired and I had stress breakouts. I was really excited to test out these new products as I am already a fan of Olay. I loved how the moisturizer really locked in the moisture at the beginning of the day and set a great foundation for my makeup. I feel like my foundation went on smoother and my skin felt softer and stayed hydrated throughout the day. The moisturizer was fragrance-free (HUGE bonus), oil-free, fast-absorbing, non-greasy and did not clog my pores. I’ve had problems in the past with my make-up not lasting throughout the day, but having the Total Effects Moisturizer with SPF 15 as a foundation, I really noticed a difference. I feel like it evened out my skin tone, diminished any age spots and acne scars and my face looked brighter and rejuvenated.
I’m also now officially obsessed with the Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel! To be completely honest with you guys, I definitely don’t sleep as much as I should; I have a pretty hectic schedule and I’m normally going to bed way too late and have an early alarm clock. The gel was like my little hidden secret! I applied the gel underneath my eyes and it instantly cooled my puffy eyes and dark circles. The gel is fast-absorbing, has pro-vitamin B5 and cucumber extract, and the cooling formula helps combat visible signs of fatigue and under eye dehydration lines. I honestly felt more awake and refreshed and it was a great little pick-me-up in the morning and was like a little mini spa treatment before bed.
I cannot believe how fast my Olay 28 Day Challenge went by, and I am most definitely going to continue using the products on a daily basis. I have significantly noticed a difference in how my face feels and looks and I hope you join the Olay 28 Day Challenge too! #Olay28Day

I honestly think the before and after photo below say it all. On the left (BEFORE) I just finished fashion month, traveling and my skin was tired, breaking out and dehydrated. On the right (AFTER) my skin feels hydrated, firm and more youthful!
