My Best Beautiful with Olay Regenerist

Aging is inevitable!  I am 39 years old and proud of the years I accumulate. It is accompanied by wisdom, experience, and greater insight.  Growing old, I’m on board with. But looking old? I’m not so hot on that idea yet. I notice my skin is drier and duller in color. There are more fine lines around key areas such as my eyes and my mouth.  Age spots and ‘expression’ lines became very visible.

I’m using the Olay Total Effects Day Cream, however, I’m kind of lacking a nighttime regimen. I know I should cleanse my face at night and remove any makeup before going to bed. But little did I know that a nighttime routine can affect how my skin looks the next day. So when I wake up in the morning, hello signs of ageing!

I’ve been an active Sample Room member since July 2015. The system of “Try before you buy” works well for me as I don’t want wasting money on items that would not work for me. I purchased VIP points to avail more samples and even get luxury samples for free and just pay for the shipping fee. I was so excited to grab full sized samples of Olay Regenerist products.

Special delivery from Sample Room

I did the #OlayNightRitual #5NightsChallenge and the changes are amazing!

At bedtime I cleanse my face with my regular cleanser, followed by my usual toner. Then I dispense two pumps of the Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence 40 ml and apply it on my face in a circular motion, avoiding the eye and lip area. The product is absorbed by the skin quickly. After a few minutes I then massage the Olay Regenerist Micro-Scuplting Cream onto my face and neck in an upward circular motion. I use them twice a day, morning and evening

The Products:

Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence 40 ml (Php 1,399)

image

Olay Regenerist Micro-Scuplting Cream 50 grams (Php 1,699)

The Promise: 

Day 01 – Visiby reduces pores, improves texture & radiance

Day 14 – Noticeably firmer skin

Day 28 – Reduces years of wrinkles

The Verdict:

Day 0 vs Day 6

I am blown away from the results I’ve gotten from the Olay Regenerist Duo. I had previously been using an arsenal of anti-aging products and was seeing minimal results. After about 5 nights of using Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence and Micro-Scuplting Cream my skin looks so much hydrated, age spots fading, less visible pores, light pink in cheeks returning, and my under eye area has lightened and looks less puffy. Both have a non-sticky texture and does not clog pores. I’m in love with these products!

With the Olay Regenerist products I received from Sample Room, I have developed a new skincare routine for my self. Hello, best beautiful skin! Will definitely continue using this skincare routine to further my results.

All About Dad

The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively. – Bob Marley

Today is Father’s Day and I am dedicating this post to my loving father. I have great amount of love for my Papa. I consider myself his mini female version. An indescribable bond was formed the second our eyes met and I become his baby girl. Our bond fostered incredible growth and lifelong lessons from both ends.

1978. Summer vacation in Ilocos Norte.

1984. A month after my little sister passed away.

When I was 10, my baby sister passed away. She was only 2 years old and was the light of our lives. My parents were equally devastated by her loss. Since then, Papa became overprotective of me and my brother but I totally understood that the pain and fear of losing a child drove his overprotective nature. As time passed by we somehow gathered ourselves and started moving forward in life. After a year, my parents were blessed with another baby boy.

Growing up, Papa taught me strong moral values, personal responsibility, honesty and trust, compassion and to respect all life. Papa taught me how to play and enjoy sports, the value of education and how to make good decisions in life. He taught me to have fun and to laugh. He taught me the meaning of work, and the meaning of love. Papa did all these by being a nurturing father, a dedicated worker, a firm disciplinarian and a very loving parent.

One thing that I love about Papa, is his laugh. People loves being around him. He makes other people laugh with his stories and jokes, and the way he would laugh about anything and everything! From his many stories, I learned that life should be enjoyed. Life is short. Do what makes you happy. Laugh a lot and live A LOT. I learned how to appreciate moments and treasure all the experiences that comes my way. Because of Papa, I realized the value of enjoying the little things in life – chirping of birds in the morning, a clean bed to sleep on, a home cooked meal, and most importantly, a good laugh.

1995. Of course, Papa was first dance during my 18th birthday.

Papa was there to share with me in times of joy and in times of hardship. He generously gave us personal time, his hard-fought efforts, and his true self so that we may grow up to face this challenging world with courage, hope, and faith. Papa was not perfect and he did have his faults, his struggles, and his weaknesses. He taught me, however, how to face these problems and challenges with a positive attitude and a strong will. These examples and the great memories I have shared with my father are everlasting and have positively influenced my life like no one else could have. #BDJAllAboutDad
