A few years ago, le bf and I went to Mexico, where I had an unfortunate sunscreen accident. I don’t know how, but I mistook a bottle of insect repellant for sunscreen, which became apparent after my skin started to turn reeeeally red. Ever since that trip, my face has been something of a constellation map, a really annoying and inconvenient map of freckles on my cheeks and around my eyes.
As someone who’s nearing 30, I do my best to take good care of my skin, and I’ve been pretty lucky so far. My pores are visible, but aren’t exceptionally large; I get occasional breakouts, but nothing too severe…but those spots, or sun damage as my dermatologist keeps telling me, definitely make me look older and more tired. So when I was asked to try the new Olay Regenerist Luminous line, I jumped at the chance. Even a remote possibility of fading some of my sun spots made me excited to participate in this program. And having used and loved Olay products before, I really wanted to give the Olay Regenerist Luminous line a go.
I have to admit, I’ve tried other tone-correcting products in the past, but without the discipline to keep going, I would give up halfway after not seeing quick results. This time, I’m 100% committed. Over the next eight weeks, I will use Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream and Olay Regenerist Dark Circle Correcting Hydraswirl religiously – twice a day! No more giving up halfway. And hopefully, at the end of the trial, I’ll see a noticeable difference. To make it easier for you to follow my skincare journey, I took this makeup-less before selfie. This is my starting point. I’m not expecting my skin to look like this once my trial is over, but I do expect to see less prominent sun spots, and not as much darkness under my eyes. I hope that after using Olay Regenerist Luminous products for eight weeks (combined with sunscreen, of course), I’ll be able to stop wearing as much makeup to cover up my sun spots, and will be able to give my skin a break more often. Luminous skin, here I come!
