Olay Regenerist #Miracle Duo

I am not vain. Soap & water pretty much does it for me. I don’t even visit the derma unless I absolutely NEED to. Like those sudden breakouts caused by stress & the elements. I have long accepted that people age no matter how advanced science & technology may be.

Our skin will look dull, fatigued, and dehydrated as it ages. Skin Cell Energy, as measured by level enzyme of NADP(H) in cells, is high among young people, but as we get older, Skin Cell Energy declines. I will grow old and that’s a fact. It’s just a matter of ageing gracefully, or not.

Skin Cell Energy allows skin to produce and maintain radiance, firmness and hydration. It affects skin’s ability to fight signs of skin ageing and its ability to absorb anti-ageing treatments. Despite this happening on a cellular level, women feel this change: 89% of women feel that the self-repairing nature of skin deteriorates when ageing. 78% of women also feel that the absorption of their skincare regimen is not as good as before. (Source: International study conducted by Beijing Technical Center, Jan. 2014)

But even so, I want to delay ageing in as much as I can. I want to always look youthful & beautiful in Kap’s eyes. I want to go out with my kids to the mall and not look like their lola. And to achieve that, I know that I have to start taking care of my skin. Kap takes better care of his skin than I do, actually, so I take lessons from him when it comes to my skin regimen.

Every night since I can remember, he makes sure to lather on moisturizer because he is out in the sun a lot. Like 40% of his day is spent outdoors. He is a sports buff so he is always always under the sun at play, or at work in his car shop or gasoline station. And his go-to product is OLAY. I kid you not.

Do you moisturize your skin every day? If you don’t, you should. Both men and women can find many benefits to using high quality facial moisturizer each day. Moisturizing your face will help you to look and feel younger, you will have softer, more elastic skin, and it will keep your skin hydrated. All of these things are important if you want to make sure to look as young as you can in the years to come.

OLAY is one of the world’s most trusted skin care brands. As you know, Kap does most of the grocery shopping. Okay 99% of the grocery shopping if you want to get technical about it. :P So one day, he came home VERY excited & showed me his loot. The OLAY REGENERIST MIRACLE BOOST YOUTH PRE-ESSENCE. He said he discovered the fountain of youth. Uhhmmm.. oookaaaay? @_@


Don’t laugh just yet! Moisturizing is not only for the ladies, but for everyone who has a SKIN -our body’s largest & fastest growing organ! So men, be confident in your own skin. Don’t be afraid to moisturize! ;)

Skin is the largest organ of our body. The average weight of skin in the body is about 10,886 grams which varies according to the size and weight of human beings.

OLAY introduces the next breakthrough in skin cell renewal and the latest trend in Asian Skin Care – the new Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence. It is designed to boost the penetration of anti-aging actives of your moisturizer to increase skin cell metabolism and renewal for youthful skin that looks up to 10 years younger.

The first drop supposedly starts renewal of a million surface cells and helps visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles, pores and firms the skin.

With that, he encouraged me to use it too. Naghanap pa talaga ng kadamay si Kap my Kap! But like I said, I am not getting younger. I really need to look into skin care because wrinkles on my face, I have to admit, is not my best feature.

So last month, we started our nightly OLAY ritual together. <3 And we have been doing it ever since. After all, the husband & wife that moisturizes together stays young two-gether! ;)

Even though making sure to moisturize daily sounds easy enough, there are certainly things that you will need to keep in mind before you do. First of all, now that you know the benefits to moisturizing including the anti-aging benefits, you should learn more about when and how to use moisturizer. You might think that you can simply use any lotion on your face and you will get the benefits, but it just ain’t true. You should only be using a moisturizer that is specifically made for the face and use one that contains SPF 15 sunscreen or higher.

But lemme tell you, that’s not all that he discovered. He also brought home the NEW OLAY REGENERIST MIRACLE BOOST YOUTH PRE-ESSENCE!

In order to get into the habit of moisturizing, I suggest that you do it at the same time every day. Like after you shower, or after you shave. These are ideal times to use moisturizer as your skin will still be damp. This moisture will help pull in the lotion easily. Before moisturizing, make sure that you clean your face thoroughly with a mild cleanser. You don’t want anything too harsh. With your face still slightly damp, apply the moisturizer gently and by using upward strokes. This helps to get the moisturizer into the pores. Your skin will begin to absorb the moisturizer immediately and typically within five to ten minutes, it will be fully absorbed.

The new OLAY Miracle Boost Pre-Essence works best when used together with the OLAY Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream. Pre-Essence helps the active ingredients of the Micro-sculpting Cream penetrate deeper into skin for dramatic results.

Together, the two products form the new #MiracleDuo to give you:

  • 2X key active penetration into epidermis;
  • Skin that looks up to 10 years younger.

How to use the #MiracleDuo:

1.) The Pre-Essence is your immediate next step after cleansing your skin as it prepares your face to absorb the next steps of the regimen. After cleansing your face with Olay Regenerist Cream Cleanser and/or Pore Minimizing Toner, on your dry face, apply the new Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Pre-essence on your forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin. Let your skin absorb the product for a few minutes.

2.) Apply the Olay Regenerist Microsculpting Cream focusing on your forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin.

3.) Use the #MiracleDuo 2x a day: once in the morning after bath and before bedtime for best results.

I have to say, Kap & I felt the immediate results of the #MiracleDuo. Our skin felt more hydrated, supple, and smooth after just 5 days of use. Lines and wrinkles, especially on Kap who takes on so much of the sun’s rays, became lighter. Skin looks healthier and moisturized.

The New Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-essence (SRP: Php1399) is exclusively available in The Olay Regenerist Microsculpting Cream (SRP: Php1499) is available in Lazada, leading drugstores, department stores, and supermarkets.

No matter what the age, LOVE should always be in full force.

      Talagang gamit namin ito ni Kap, Niel. :) Every night walang paltos. Pero try a little on your inner arm first, sa harap ng elbow so you can see if compatible sayo yung product. And sometimes kasi if oily skin hindi bahay ang moisturizer. Kaya ako hindi run ganun kadami ang lagay ko kasi nga I have oily skin. :)

      I wouldn’t recommend moisturizer sa mga mayroong oily face Kei kasi napansin ko palo nagmamantika hehe. I use toner lang after washing my face then johnson’s baby powder to absorb all my mantic while I sleep. :)
