#5NightsChallenge with Olay Regenerist

With my baby Bryce

Taken last May 31, with my baby Bryce who just turned 6 months! : )

Challenges of a mom
I’m a first time mom to a very energetic 6-month old baby. I’m sure moms out there can agree on the different challenges we, moms, have to face on a daily basis. One challenge I dread the most is — lack of sleep! It could definitely age our skin faster. So in order to fully attend to my baby’s needs, in order to take care of him, I ensure I take care of my well-being first. One way I do that is I take care of my skin. As they say, “when you look good, you feel good“.

Skin Solution
Our skin cells regenerate as we sleep so it’s important to make the most out of the time our skin “rests” by treating our skin to a nightly skin care regimen. This is why it’s called “beauty sleep”.

That’s why I took the #5NightsChallenge with Olay Regenerist.

Olay Regenerist Overnight Ritual

Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream and Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost

Olay Regenerist Overnight Ritual consists of two Olay products: Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream and Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost.

In five nights, the duo promises skin renewal making skin hydrated, radiant, firmer and lifted. Essentially making skin youthfully beautiful.

My review
I used the Olay duo for five consecutive nights. After cleansing and toning, I applied Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-essence and then applied the Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream moisturizer after. I concentrated on my forehead, cheeks, nose and chin, massaging my face in an upward motion.

Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-essence is a light serum-like essence. It melts on my skin and is totally fast-absorbing. It basically preps the skin for fast absorption and boosts the efficacy of the skin care. Next is Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream moisturizer which renews, firms and lifts the skin. Since it moisturizes the skin making it plump, it minimizes the look of wrinkles. And since I have oily skin, I only used very little product, and it goes a long way.

My observation and effects
After the first night I tried it, I noticed that my skin has redness and is plump. On the second day, it’s gotten better. No more redness but it was itchy on my nose, forehead and cheeks. Third day, I had micro-peeling but definitely healthier looking skin. I had rosy cheeks! Fourth day, no more micro-peeling. I noticed my skin was more radiant and healthy-looking. On the fifth day though, I developed some zits. I believe it’s somewhat of a normal reaction when you are trying a new product plus, since I have oily skin, I think the cream-type moisturizer had something to do with it.

My conclusion
In conclusion albeit some skin reactions, I love the Olay Regenerist for moisturizing my skin, making it more radiant and healthy looking.

Vying to be one of Sample Room Beauty Insiders

Being a follower and a member of Sample Room since the first year they started, I strongly believed and supported them in the premise of “try before you buy“. Who has money to throw on products or services that you’ll eventually find out that it doesn’t suit you? That is where Sample Room comes in — they give us option to try products or services first before buying them! I don’t think there is anything more awesome than that!

55 products, 2 contests won and 3 years later, (yes, that’s how many products I’ve sampled!), they are now looking again for the next batch of Sample Room’s Beauty Insider. I wanted to join the first batch, but missed the chance, so now is the exciting time for me to try and join. I am so ecstatic that I literally have to control myself and my thoughts in order to share my reasons for wanting to be part of Sample Room on a deeper, bigger level. Here are my top 3 reasons why.

Top 3 Reasons Why I Want to Be the Next Sample Room’s Beauty Insider

Force to reckon with.

Yes, Sample Room surely is a force to reckon with. There’s no better privilege than to become part of a beautiful growing Sample Room family I strongly believe in and support. Becoming a beauty insider will open opportunities for me to get to know and hopefully be friends with more Sample Roomies.

Share the passion.

I have strong passion in sharing what I believe in. By getting first dibs on products and services, I will try and test it so you don’t have to risk getting products that won’t work for you. I will share what’s good or not so good in the simplest, honest and personal way, and you be the judge if it’s something that tickles your fancy.

The perks.

Who doesn’t want free samples, invites to product launches and events? Well I know, I do!!!

These are just some of the many reasons why I want to be next Sample Room Beauty Insider. And through this, I will offer some tips, tricks and my insights as a practical, modern and first-time mom.

Baby Bump - 34 Weeks

Pregnancy Diary: 34 Weeks and 4 Days (November 1)

Diary Entry | 28 October 2015

My first consultation at Shiphrah Bahay Paanakan! Since it’s located in Taytay Rizal and we live in Cavite City, we woke up and left really early like 5AM. We arrived past 7AM which is good because we were asked to be there by 8AM. When we got there, there were only 2 moms waiting. I was anxiously observing their “system”. I saw a record book with 2 categories: Graduate and Non-graduate, and I listed my name under Graduate not knowing exactly what are they referring to. Haha. Apparently Graduate category is for those moms who are finished with Shiphrah’s 10 seminars. So I quickly changed my listing to Non-Graduate.

There’s a lot of waiting time and we’re clueless as to how our visit there would pan out. At around 830AM, the 2 moms who I first met asked us to go to the seminar area. Apparently there’s a bible study first before the seminar. We patiently sat down and listened although good thing I personally didn’t feel violated about this. Right after the bible study, one midwife — Ate Belle, greeted us, who will conduct the seminar.

It’s the batch’s 5th seminar and it’s only our first! It’s the perfect timing though because the seminar topic is childbirth! During the seminar there’s this foreigner photographer/videographer who was covering the talk and the attendees. We were in front so I’m pretty sure we were captured on film for the most part. After the seminar, non-graduates were asked to go inside to lineup for our prenatal checkup.
