I never used to think much about why I used Olay. I just always have.
My mum has always used it and then I started using it in my early twenties and have ever since.
I’ve always used Olay Total Effects, but now that I am approaching my fortieth birthday, I feel the need to do more for my skin. So I’ve changed it up and now I’m using the Olay Regenerist Miracle Duo.
I know, I know, two steps. I’ve never been a fan of multi-step moisturising systems because I’m always so busy. I don’t have time to wait for even just a few minutes for one product to be absorbed by my skin so I can add the next one. The incredible thing about Olay Regenerist Miracle Duo is how quick and easy it is to use. Plus I love being able to say that I have a ‘skin care regime’ now.
You start with the Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence which is a light pre-essence that absorbs into your freshly cleansed skin in around 60 seconds, as long as it takes me to apply my deodorant. This incredible product is meant to boost surface cell metabolism and renewal and makes your moisturiser penetrate deeper for more dramatic anti-ageing results.
It also helps visibly reduce fine lines and pores (I once had a massive pore problem on my nose and chin that now appears smaller, yes!) and it also firms the skin. Your skin feels so hydrated after using it, not tight and stiff like after using other products.
Then you put on the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream and you’re done. By the time you get dressed your skin is ready for makeup and off you go. It’s a powerful duo of products that work together to help skin look dramatically younger. You end up with your best skin now, today, immediately — not in weeks and months.
But there’s more to it than even I realised.
