#Olay28Day Challenge Results

This is a sponsored conversation with Olay, but all opinions are my own
Growing up, I watched my mother and grandmother use Olay.  When my grandmother passed at the age of 84, her skin looked great for her age.  She'd been a loyal Olay user for decades.  I started using an Olay moisturizer when I was about 15-years-old, and I used it until I was in my late 20s.

As I aged, I thought I needed something more.  I saw these skin care lines with several products and steps and thought I had to have them to see results.  For whatever reason, I stopped using Olay for several years.  I recently took the Olay 28 Day Challenge, and I was blown away by the results.  For the Olay 28 Day Challenge, simply use Olay Regenerist or Olay Total Effects for 28 days.  If you don’t see visible results, you get your money back.

#Olay28Day Challenge

Before I started the challenge, I used Olay's Skin Advisor to see what products I should use.  It said my skin age was 29.  Since I was 36 at the time, I was rather happy with the results.

My skin issues were large pores, fine lines, and some uneven skin tone.  I was also getting bags under my eyes, but I was blaming those on being a mom to a special needs kiddo.

I used the Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream and Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream exclusively for 28 days.  The cream has Amino-Peptides and Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) to firm and plump the skin, both of which help reduce the appearance of fine lines.  It's lightweight, yet it's a thick cream.  Honestly, it felt like a higher end cream and not at all like a drugstore cream.

While I don't have too many fine lines around my eyes, they are getting puffy, especially when I don't get enough sleep.  Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream works several ways.  First, it has a light concealer in to temporarily cover dark circles on all skin tones.  It also helps reduce puffiness and wrinkles.

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably see my stories where I feature my weekly face mask.  For the challenge, I skipped the masks for four weeks because I wanted to see what Olay could do.  

I have to admit that I was excited to go back to using just a couple of products.  At one point, I was using upwards of seven products in the morning and seven products in the evening, and they were different products for the time of the day!  I had to use my label maker to label them for time of day and the order.  

But could just two products replace that many products?

I quickly found out that, yes, they most definitely could.

After eight days, I noticed that my pores appeared smaller and my fine lines weren't as noticeable.  I could also see a small improvement in my under-eye area.  


Now that I've finished the Olay 28 Day Challenge, I can definitely see an improvement in my under-eye area.  My pores still appear smaller and my fine lines are diminished versus before using Olay.

I used the Olay Skin Advisor again.  Remember, my skin's age was 29 before I started using Olay.  This time, it was 27!  I had a birthday while I was taking the challenge, so I'm actually 37 now.


Overall, I'm very happy with my challenge results.  My pores and fine lines look smaller and my skin looks great.  I honestly didn't think my under-eye area would look better because I know I don't get enough sleep, but it really improved with the Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream.  After previously using so many products, I was happy to only have two products to use.  In the morning, I’m so rushed to get started homeschooling.  In the evening, I’m too exhausted to use several products before I go to bed.
