A lot of people think that because I have an Asian background, I am probably genetically blessed with good skin. But my skincare needs are no different to anybody else’s – taking care of my skin has always been a huge part of my daily routine.
I grew up watching my mother cleanse, tone, moisturise and mask. Her advice since I was young was to always take care of my skin. It’s definitely something that has stuck with me. As the years go by, our cell turnover is much slower, and therefore I also suffer from dull, uneven skin and dark spots from too much sun.
I partnered up with Olay to try out the newly reformulated Regenerist Luminous Range. I first heard about the Olay 28 day challenge through another blogger friend of mine, so I was more than happy to try it for myself! Olay is going through a big evolution, including the re-engineered formulation of the Regenerist Luminous collection. The key ingredient is a Pearl Optic Complex that helps brighten the skin’s tone and hydrate, while visibly reducing the appearance of skin pigmentation.
So here are my observations after using it for a short while – I haven’t been using it for the 28 days yet, but stay tuned for more.
Here are the products I’m using:
After a few days I found my skin to be brighter and more hydrated. So far so good, so I can’t wait to see what happens after 28 days. There are some logical differences I’ve noticed that have impacted my skin – including ingredients that reflect light, so I’m seeing a natural glow, and the products also contain key ingredients like vitamin B3 and glycerin that increase hydration. But don’t just take my word for it, give them a try for yourself. There is a lot of science and hard work that has gone into this evolution.
In their pursuit of the anti-ageing holy grail, Olay partnered with Harvard Medical School’s Dr Alex Kimball and the genetics research firm 23andMe and did a study of 155,000 participants to gain insights into just how much anti-ageing was a result of nurture vs. nature. This resulted in the complete reformulation of Olay’s anti-ageing skincare boutiques, including Olay Regenerist Luminous and, for my skin type, I’ll be looking to get more hydrated, glowing skin with a more even skin tone.
These products are newly relaunched, hitting shelves now and they aim to give you brighter, healthier-looking skin in two weeks and make a dramatic difference in 28 days. Will give you an update on the results in 28 days! So stay tuned!
