I was asked if I’m willing to do a skincare challenge where I will use an unbranded product on only half of my face for 28 days. I must admit it sounds a little scary for me because 1st, the brand is not mentioned until I finished the challenge, then 2nd I do beauty reviews and go to events, I can’t imagine what my skin will be like knowing the other side is treated while half is untreated. But then it’s something new that I want to try so I said Yes to the challenge.
I was sent two products to try, an essence and a facial moisturizer.
I see instant effect. The treated side of my face feels softer and smoother while the untreated side feels rough and dry.
I became more aware of the product. I noticed that it has very subtle scent. Both the essence and moisturizer don’t feel heavy and get easily absorbed by the skin.
My treated side feels hydrated, softer, and has that healthy / dewy effect even without makeup on while I started to get bumps on the untreated side of my face. It also sometimes feels itchy on the untreated side. Makeup application is easier and looks better on the treated side.
Since I’m already noticing a bigger difference when I compare each side of my face, I got more conscious dealing with other people. For those who first see the untreated side of my face will tell me that my skin looks nice but when they see the other side, you’ll see questionable expressions on their faces. I think this happens to people who are struggling with their skin condition. Confidence is built when you know you have good skin.
14 days have passed and I’m very happy with the treated side of my face but feel worried at the same time for the untreated side since I get more and more bumps and pimples. Since I don’t apply anything on it, it feels dry and tight, always the opposite look and feel compared to the treated side of the face.
Finally we’re on our 28th day. I can’t wait for this challenge to end so I can use the products both sides of my face.
After 28 days…
TREATED SIDE (photo above) feels smoother, softer, and flawless. I also noticed that my pores are not as visible as before. Compliments keep coming from my friends when they see this side of my face. Whenever I take my selfies, I always go for the angle showing my treated side of the face.
UNTREATED SIDE (photo above) feels worst ever. I never felt that my skin is so dry like this before. I got more bumps, pimples. Makeup looks horrible on this side of my face as well. Judging this side of my face, it looks older compared to the left side.
Even if I still don’t know what brand and products are these yet, I will still recommend this to my friends who wanted to have better and younger looking skin.
We are not aware about the brand and products we are using until this video shoot where it was a legit surprise to me. I actually thought it’s the rival of this brand and something that’s more expensive.
When it comes to having flawless and youthful skin, are you one of the lucky few? Those who were blessed and inherited flawless skin from their parents and relatives? Don’t worry if you’re not. Like me, I have to work for my skin to look better too. Good thing Olay has new and improved formulation of Olay White Radiance, Olay Total Effects, and Olay Regenerist.
Olay White Radiance Advanced Whitening Essence
This is the essence that I’ve been using for almost a month during the challenge and I until now I still incorporate it in my skincare routine. It has Pearl-Optics Complex, the reason for my dewy skin during the challenge. It enhances the skin’s dewy radiant aura by improving the brightness, skin tone, and hydration making the appearance of dark spots fade away with continuous use.
Olay White Radiance Advanced Whitening Moisturizer
I love moisturizers that don’t feel heavy on the skin yet penetrates deep down my skin to hydrate and improve its condition. This is what the Olay White Radiance moisturizer does to my skin. The Olay White Radiance Essence preps the skin for the next skincare products to be applied. Then to further moisturize the skin, I apply this Olay White Moisturizer.
This is the best combo of products that I’ve tried so far!
The science behind it…
Olay has conducted research and analysis from Olay’s Multi-decade and Ethnicity Study (MDE Study), together with Harvard Medical School’s Dr. Alexa Kimball to re-engineer the formulations. The study shows that 10% of women (aka the “lucky few”) carry a genetic code that maintains the youthful skin even as they age. This is the breakthrough that Olay has wanted to share with all women so we don’t need to worry about aging. Imagine having beautiful skin as you age? It’s like reversing the effects of aging!
Will I recommend these products that I’ve tried?
Of course Yes! Actually, while I’m trying it out for 28 days, I also have a friend who tried it on her entire face and she’s stunned with the results. It makes me more confident that it is indeed the products that are behind the improvement of my skin on the treated side of my face.
Aside from using the right products for your skin, I highly suggest that you also improve your lifestyle. Avoid food that can make you breakout. In short, eat healthy as much as you can. What you eat reflects with your skin and overall look.
Here are the 3 Other Women who can attest to what Olay can offer…
“I know I’m very blessed to be in this position because I know many girls would want to be here, and so, that is what I always think about when I think of the things I missed out on.” Just as how she is able to overcome the stresses of a busy lifestyle, Janella Salvador trusts Olay White Radiance as her best bet for her skin.
“Confidence makes me feel beautiful. I don’t think a specific color or number of circumstances define your luck. Whatever makes you feel the most confident will bring you all the luck.” With Olay Total Effects, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach believes that she gets to win over each.
“You can’t be defined by the world,” “No matter how scared I may be, if the situation calls for me to stand up for something, then I will.” – Charo Santos-Concio, who is also a fan of Olay Regenerist.
