#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.

When you’re pregnant and expecting, your entire life instantaneously changes one hundred eighty degrees. You’ll have tons of worries revolving your unborn child, you’ll have unhealthy food cravings which may cause you to gain more weight, your body will feel heavy like a bulldozer, you’ll get to know “morning sickness” which attacks pretty much anytime of the day and you’ll have heavy vaginal discharge — altogether making you feel queasy, unconfident, unattractive and unsexy.

When I’m feeling exactly that, here are surefire ways I do that help me regain my balance, my confidence and overall, feel clean and sexy while pregnant.

Nourish the mind.

Tuesdays with MorrieRead and write. Oftentimes, I read something uplifting, encouraging, and mind-stretching. I love to read a great book of inspiring quotes or a short chapter of a story of someone else’s victorious life. I don’t stop with just reading it, I write it – I create a digital artwork of the quotes that really spoke to me and share it. There is something about writing it out and sharing it to the world that helps the brain process it more fully than simply reading it.

It’s a refreshing facial gel cleanser that cleanses the face without leaving it dry. It’s able to strip off excess oil and still leaving skin soft and supple. I feel refreshed every after using this cleanser!

My first Beauty MNL purchase.

Beauy MNL, the go-to beauty destination for Filipinas, has been on my mind for months now. Their magazine provides entertaining and insightful articles tailor-fit to the Filipina’s lifestyle, whether finding a good facial wash or hair conditioner. They have celebrity gurus, they share tips, easy how-tos, and great beauty trends we can actually rock in this tropical country!

Their shop contains curated beauty and skincare staples as well as current, buzzed about miracle beauty cures. Imagine online shopping for beauty, skincare and haircare needs? I wouldn’t want it any other way!

I was in the market for a new face wash that would work for both myself and my B. I found this brand, Aloe Derma, interesting. I ended up buying their acne removing deep cleanser face wash plus brightening facial mask, plus a whole lot of beauty goodies that are already tried and tested.

    2) Dove deodorant free from any Dove purchase
    3) Benefit They’re Real! Mascara mini for a minimum purchase
    4) Free shipping for orders above P1,500!
