The Results: #Olay28Day Challenge

When I first started the #Olay28Day challenge using products from the Olay Luminous line, I didn’t expect much. Honestly, I didn’t expect anything. I have a bathroom full of products that didn’t live up to their promises.

I had my first experience with acne when I was far into my twenties and pregnant with my first child. I have used countless facial treatments to stop bumps, blemishes and new acne, but to no avail.

Since I have looked for so many solutions, I was excited to be a part of the #Olay28Day Challenge.

  • Olay Luminous Micellar Water (morning and night),
  • Olay Luminous Miracle Boost Concentrate (morning and night),
  • Olay Luminous Light Hydrating Lotion (morning), and
  • Olay Luminous Overnight Mask (night).

I was hesitant. I normally wash my face in the shower. Not washing it felt weird. It’s very different to feel a rush of water across your face and using soap versus a cotton ball and a bottle.

Then there was the moisturizing part. I don’t moisturize twice a day. I just don’t. That said, I followed the program, day and night.

Olay28Day Challenge Post 1 | AprilNoelle.comMy before picture is to the right. See how the bottom part of my face is dark. There’s a shadow of sorts. That shadow is not from the sun, it’s a mix of blemishes that became an overarching shadow on the bottom of my face.

The first change I noticed was how quickly my blemishes started disappearing. The bumps and the acne were diminishing.

The second change I noticed was my skin was becoming more uniform. The dark spots were getting lighter. I was no longer using extra foundation to cover the blemishes.

The third change I noticed was new blemishes disappeared quickly. One such blemish lasted two days, then poof, gone. That was completely new to me.

Then, Hurricane Irma hit us hard, leaving us without power for five days. No power means limited running water. You know what’s great when it’s 90 degrees in the house and you can’t use running water? Olay Luminous Micellar Water. During this time, I realized how clean I was able to get my face with a few pumps of the Micellar Water without running water.

You know what’s also great to clean your face daily? Olay Luminous Micellar Water. I’m going to start calling it Miracle Water. It really does make a difference for your skin’s evenness. I received so many compliments over the last month about how my skin looked clearer and vibrant.

As you can see to the right, I’ve gotten some sun. And normally more sun means that the dark spots get darker. Here, I can still see the shadow, but comparatively to me (and to others), it was not as strong. The daily moisturizers were promising too. Even in our high heat-high humidity climate, I felt like my face could breathe, even after the application of foundation.

I would highly recommend this four step process and am proud to be a part of the #Olay28Day Challenge using the Olay Luminous line.

    Good for you that you liked the products. However I’m only using 100% natural products. It really helps me to sooth my skin that’s very sensitive to any chemical stuff. Maybe read my latest blog:

  11. Luci says:

    I need to try the micellar water, I use a different brand and have been looking for something new to try.

  12. Aine says:

    Haven’t seen many of these on the shelves, but have been using Garnier Micellar water and I love that. Also have the issue with a “shadow” so perhaps a regime is needed

  13. I have heard of this challenge before – I think it was through videos on YouTube – but how neat that you got to take part in it and experienced good results! Oil of Olay products have been around for a LONG time, so it’s not surprising they provide good results when used regularly and consistently.

  14. Elizabeth O says:

    This Olay 28 days challenge looks so interesting.I have never try of Olay products before,but looks like these are something Interesting to try.

  15. Only 28 days and you got that result? Wow… this looks like a good product!

  16. There is a difference in your face. Sometimes I think models do these. I love Oil of Olay Body Wash but have never tried their lotions. I guess it is time to start.

  17. Kelly Reci says:

    this Olay 28 days challenge is such the best product than others. Very effective and leaves our skin so soft.
