Hello BBs! (If you’re new here, BB means beautiful babes). As you all know, one of my main purpose in blogging is to serve as your human guinea pig. To try out products from makeup to skincare, to give you reviews straight from the heart. Earlier this year I was invited to be part of a challenge. A HUUUUUGE challenge where I would be required to use an unbranded product on only half of my face for 28 days.
If someone asked you that, will you? I said yes of course! The brand was confident enough in the effectiveness on their products for a blind-testing. So bravely I went and said a temporary farewell to half of my face who will be left untreated.
Continue reading for the progress, thoughts, and the BIG REVEAL!
Here are the changes I noticed after using the product consistently DAY and NIGHT for 28 days:
- Whiteheads are starting to appear
- Feels rough and has bumps
- Appears to be firmer and toned
- Looks visibly radiant
- Feels Smooth
- The untreated side has at least 4 visible cystic acne. A lot of red patches, looks dull and uneven.
- The skin looks depressing on this side
- Looks visibly lifted and plump. It’s smooth to touch with no signs of pimples. It is also more radiant looking. It also feels softer.
- Looks tremendously better than the other side and it makes me ecstatic. It makes me wish I can use the creams on both sides of my face already.
- Blackheads and whiteheads are visible
- There are increasing bumps on my chin
- Skin tone looks patchy and uneven
- It looks glowing from within
- It feels soft and smooth
- It looks lifted
- Skin looks dull patchy and uneven
- Visible laugh lines and crow’s feet
- Clogged pores, feels itchy
- Blackheads and whiteheads on nose area and chin area
- It looked visibly lifted and tight than before.
- The other parts of my face feel smooth and it looks glowing.
- It feels super soft and smooth to touch, like a marshmallow
- It has that “maaliwalas” look, that my face on this side looks relaxed, stress-free and happy
Oh gosh! Within that 28 days and seeing the difference between both sides; It makes me want to use the product on both sides of my face already. The product’s texture is light and silky. It’s easily absorbed in my skin so it’s comfortable to put on! It also has this nice sheen to it that makes it a perfect base for makeup.
When it’s finally time for the big reveal on what product it is. This brand was already in my mind! I knew it! It was Olay all along!
Olay is Better than Ever
Olay re-engineered their formulas to mimic the genetic code of the lucky 10% that have naturally youthful look as they age because of their DNA. The re-engineered formulas are backed up by thorough research and analysis from Olay’s Multi-decade and Ethnicity Study (MDE Study), together with Harvard Medical School’s Dr. Alexa Kimball. This extensive analysis of skin from a multitude of women of various age groups and ethnic backgrounds showed that 10% of women, dubbed as “the lucky few”, carry a genetic code for naturally beautiful skin that maintains its youthful look even as they age.
Activating the skin’s genetic code to mimic that of the lucky few is exactly the breakthrough that Olay is eager to share with all women, because nothing should stop them from choosing to make their own luck.
The new Olay White Radiance Light Perfecting Essence with Pearl-Optics Complex enhances the skin’s dewy radiant aura. It does so by improving brightness, skin tone, and hydration, visibly reducing the appearance of dark spots over time. With this new formulation, you can look glowing and fresh, and feel confident even with minimal to no makeup.
The Olay Total Effects Day Moisturizer SPF 15 sets the bar higher in fighting the 7 signs of aging by further enhancing the skin’s natural self-renewal process. The Olay Total Effects series was the first mass skin care product to introduce the powerful anti-aging ingredient Niacinamide, but with Olay’s quest for improvement, the formula was boosted. The new Olay Total Effects now has VitaNiacin Complex II with Vitamins C, E, B3 and B5, along with having 50% more Vitamin E that serves as an anti-oxidant capable of defending the skin from free radicals known to cause skin-aging.
With the addition of Carob seed extract, the new Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream helps accelerate the recovery of aging skin, thanks to the added Glyco-Repair. This component activates the “ageless gene” pattern for that youthful-looking skin with reduced lines and wrinkles, and improved texture and elasticity. While also containing hyaluronic acid that aids in drawing moisture to keep your skin supple, the new Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream steps up its game as a new force in firmness.
