It's no secret that I have had a bit of a challenge embracing my age once I hit that 35-year-old mark...I was the woman who never wore sunscreen, didn't own a moisturizing cream and very rarely even removed her makeup before she went to bed! Of course, as soon as I hit 35, I looked in the mirror and thought, "Uh oh, I won't look this young forever, I better shape up!" Ever since, I've taken measures to hold onto my youthful appearance, and I would like to think that it's all working! Today I want to tell you about the #Olay28Day Challenge - I'm using Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream and Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream to not only maintain my skin, but because this Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream formula is supposed to deliver visibly younger looking skin! I am turning 40 in a few months. Yes, folks, FORTY YEARS OLD! I have been dreading this day for years, and as I am now divorced, single, and have a daughter in her 20's, I dread the day I look into the mirror and look my age. Grey hair, hair texture changes, wrinkles, sun spots... these are just not things I want to see staring back at me in the reflection! I think we're all a little afraid of looking "old," aren't we?
So what exactly IS the #Olay28Day Challenge?
For 28 days, I replaced my current facial moisturizers and eye creams to ONLY use the Olay Regenerist 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
I really took the #Olay28Day Challenge seriously! So seriously that I even brought my products along on the week-long Caribbean cruise I went on, as the challenge began during the first few days of my cruise and I wanted to make sure that I really did the challenge to the full extent!
I really love the Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream, you just use it like a normal moisturizer after you wash your face in the morning and the evening. Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream delivers younger-looking skin in just 28 days, reducing the appearance of fine lines on the very first day and resulting in firmer skin in as little as 5 days! It begins immediately plumping your skin and it hydrates better than those costly creams you can find in the store that cost up to $400!
There are SO MANY different creams out there, and it can be overwhelming to find the right one at a price point you can afford. That's one of the best things about Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream - it does exactly what it says it does, and you can find it at just about any retailer for around $30!
Why is Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream so great? Well, here is a look at the key ingredients:
- Carob Seed Extract aids in skin repair and regeneration according to in vitro and in vivo testing
- Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) boosts cell turnover and maintains skin's moisture barrier
- Amino-peptide (pal-KTKKS) helps decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Panthenol (Vitamin B5) soothes and moisturizes the skin
- Vitamin E is an oil-soluble anti-oxidant which protects against free radical damage
- Olivem is a derivative of olive oil which has been modified to increase the penetration of anti-aging ingredients into the skin's stratum corneum
- Glycerin and Hyaluronic Acid, powerful humectants with intense miniaturization properties
Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream is said to deliver younger-looking eyes on the VERY FIRST DAY! You can see a reduced appearance of crow's feet on Day 1, and it immediately reduces puffiness and the look of dark circles, which is practically magic. I mean, immediate results? YES, please!
You simply use it in the morning and even after washing your face; place a small amount around your under eyes, outer corners and eyelids, smoothing until it's completely absorbed.
This is a one-minute routine that is so easy, and delivers huge results! I used to get a certain cosmetic enhancement every three months to keep my crows feet at bay...well, let's just say that I am no longer in a financial position to afford that, and the Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream is a much, much more affordable alternative!
My Olay 28 Day Challenge has now come to an end, and I am very happy with the results! I can see the results; the wrinkles around my eyes and on my forehead aren't as deep, my skin is more vibrant and looks healthier, and well, younger. Let the silly selfies showing off my new, fresh-faced look commence! If you don't post a selfie showing how great your skin looks, did it really happen?
I may be fine with turning 40 years old in four months because I certainly don't FEEL 40...just so long as I keep looking like this! That's the best part of Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream and Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream...it takes just a few minutes each day to look your best, so that your appearance matches how you feel inside!

Sounds like a great product. I have never used a moisturizer but as I am getting older I am seeing a need for it. I need to give this a try.

You can see the difference around the eyes. I don't have tons of wrinkles but I know that I'd appreciate my skin looking younger.
I really love that Olay is doing this 28 day challenge, watching everyone participate has encouraged me to invest in Olay products. I am not getting any younger and my skin is showing signs of aging. I will be trying this as soon as I possibly can! You look great!
I'm such a big fan of Olay and since I'm not getting any younger, I want to keep my skin looking it's best for years to come. I cannot wait to try this for myself at home!
I can really see the difference! Your skin looks so luminous and smooth after the challenge. I've always felt like Olay products are some of the best!

Rock it, sexy pants! I did the 28 day challenge, and I never stopped! I LOVE the way my skin looks with Olay. I'm never going back to anything else.
WOW! You can actually really see the difference. I Love how smooth it looks. I am going to have to try this.

What an amazing difference. Your skin evens out and looks so smooth and soft! I can't wait to try this out!
I haven't tried this product, but I keep hearing how good it is. I am impressed to see people getting results in under a month! I would like to give this a try and see if it helps even out my skin.
I used to think Olay was just for older people but I have absolutely LOVED a lot of their products recently!! Just goes to show you can't judge a product before you try it!!
I have heard a lot about this challenge lately. Sounds like it's working for everyone. I've always loved Olay products too. I may just need to try this out as well.
Those are some really great results. I might try this one.
Olay does it yet again. They have some really useful products.
wow, what an amazing product! Your skin looks really healthy.
I have been using an OLAY moisturizer for years and still loving it. I haven't tried their eye cream yet though. Going to check that out.
I love Olay products. They gave us some in our welcome baskets at university and I've been using it ever since.
