I tried the Olay 28 Day Challenge, and this is what happened

This shop has been compensated by Olay All opinions are mine alone. #ad #Olay28Day

Recently, I got the chance to work with Olay and participate in the 28 Day
Challenge to get visible healthy skin. After 28 days of consistent usage, I am incredibly
impressed, and I have not been wearing foundation AT ALL. My skin is noticeably healthy, and my sisters have even joined the challenge (learn more how you can too at the end of this post).

DETAILS ABOUT THE PRODUCTS

I tried the Olay 28 Day Challenge, and this is what happened

The Olay Total Effects Moisturizer with SPF 15 provides 7 benefits in 1. It replenishes
moisture, evens skin tone and appearance, enhances brightness, visibly smooths fine
lines and wrinkles, minimizes the look of pore, restores firmness, and visibly reduces dark
spots.

As for the Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel, it hydrates tired eyes and plumps the
delicate skin, and the hyaluronic acid formula instantly hydrates tired eyes. Plus, the
cooling formula helps fight visible signs of fatigue and under eye dehydration lines.

THE CHALLENGE

The 28 Day Challenge consists of using Olay Total Effects Moisturizer with SPF 15
and Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel every day for 28 days.

I applied both products every morning, and the eye gel in the evening as well.

The moisturizer is very creamy, and it soaks into the skin without leaving a lot of residue. I have tried a lot of moisturizers because I have dry skin, and almost all of them leave my skin oily.

This cream just left my skin hydrated with no excess.

The eye gel is very cooling, and it was honestly my favorite part of my morning and night routine. With this gel, a little goes a long way! It was very refreshing.

Before starting the 28 Day Challenge, I had really been neglecting my skincare routine.
Most nights I was too tired, so I just resorted to a makeup wipe. My skin tone was
very uneven, and my under-eye area was very dark. Plus, I had dry patches all over my
forehead and eyebrows.

I kept telling myself I didn’t have time to maintain healthy skin all of the time.

After the first week of the challenge, I immediately noticed that my skin tone was
more even and smooth. For makeup, I would just put a little under eye concealer, and I
would be good to go.

After two weeks, the dark circles around my eyes were much lighter, and my skin looked
incredibly hydrated. I started only wearing eye makeup at this point for work because my
skin was glowing.

My skin looked so much more healthier, and I was just using two products! The routine only took about 2 minutes, and my skin was plumper, brighter and smoother!

Here’s a photo after two weeks:

As I continued the challenge, the more comfortable I felt wearing no makeup. For one
particular stressful week at my job, I didn’t wear makeup, and I felt confident the
entire time.

Plus, I know the products have anti-aging elements, so I know I am helping my future skin
while improving my current skin!

I attached a before photo. I tried to take photos of my process in the same spot with the
same lighting, so you could see the difference. This is also exactly what I look like when I
wake up.

The after photo is also directly after waking up! My skin looks less dull, and my under eye
area is the same color as the rest of my skin!

Plus, I was getting so many compliments on my skin that it was hard to not continue one
of the easiest skincare challenges I have ever participated in.

Getting into the routine was not easy at first, but now I know immediately if I have
forgotten to put on my Olay regime.

Easy Avocado Bacon Flatbread

Cooking for me has always been easier said that done. By the time I finish my work shift, I am too exhausted to create a meal – so it’s either frozen or take out.

Now that my sisters have moved in, we have been cooking more and more. It’s so much easier now that we can divide up responsibilities and have specific days to cook. However, I am still busy, so on days where I am the “meal provider”, I still make sure the recipe is easy, but delicious.

One of my new favorite quick fixes is my avocado bacon flatbread! They are super simple to make, and they taste so good!

Ingredients (per flatbread):

1 pre-made flatbread

1 tsp of olive oil

1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup of cooked bacon

1/4 cup of chopped red onion

1/2 sliced avodaco

Drizzle of Spicy Ranch Dressing

Pinch of salt and pepper


To prep, I put the bacon in the oven preheated at 350 degrees. I really like to cook my bacon in the oven for two reasons.

  1. It gives it a really crunchy even bake
  2. You can put it in the oven, and work on other things

So while my bacon is cooking in the oven, I can chop my red onion and and my avocado. Once the bacon is done, I also chop it all up, so it’s ready to go on the flatbread.

After I am done getting all my ingredients, I brush the olive oil on my pre-made flatbread. I used the Flatout Thin Crust Flatbread Spicy Italian.

Then, I sprinkle on salt, pepper, and the cheese onto the flatbread.

I like to place the flatbread on a cookie sheet covered in foil. This keeps my cookie sheet clean, and easy to wipe down and put away afterwards!

After letting the cheese melt for about 7-10 minutes in the oven at 350 degrees, you can sprinkle on the bacon and the onions.

After another 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is fully melted,  you can take out the flatbreads and add the avocado and drizzle on the spicy ranch.
