Review: Olay Regenerist #MiracleDuo

Many people have been asking me about my skincare regimen. I actually have very sensitive skin, so I'm very careful about using just any product that comes around. That's why I'm so happy that Olay products work well with me. I don't itch, develop rashes, and experience breakouts like I do with other products.

Just the same, whenever I try something new - even if it's from a trusted brand like Olay - I still do a quick skin test just to make sure. I put just a little amount of the product on my inner arm, and then on the side of the neck. 
This is what I did as soon as I received the Miracle Duo package from Olay! And both products passed the test - no allergies!

The truth is, I'm always wary about products that attach the word "miracle" to their name because none of those I've tried have actually delivered ! But I've been hearing a lot of rave reviews about the Olay Miracle Duo so I was thrilled to have received the package from Olay and super excited for the opportunity to try it myself and write my review!

According to the instructions, the two products work best together. The Olay Regenerist Miracle-Boost Youth Pre-Essence is supposed to prepare the skin for the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream Moisturizer. So after cleansing my face and neck thoroughly, I put on two drops of Pre-Essence all over my face, carefully avoiding the eyes and mouth as instructed, and then spread another drop on my neck.

It is non-sticky and is quickly absorbed by the skin. I noticed a little tightness upon application. Then, I opened the Micro-Sculpting Cream jar and took a whiff of the pleasant faint fragrance. I took swipes of the cream with the tips of my index and middle finger and spread it all over the face and neck in upward circular strokes.  My skin felt instantly hydrated without the greasy after feel. It felt soft and smooth to the touch. The product was quickly absorbed and my pre-makeup skin looked radiant! I love it! Olay certainly delivered on its promise. While this is a sponsored review, it is an honest one. 
The Olay Regenerist Miracle Duo actually works!

As a fashion and lifestyle blogger, I've had to wear makeup almost every day for photo shoots and special events. It is after all my business to look good all the time. But that also means taking care of my skin and protecting it from pre-mature aging. Thank God, I found a reliable brand that actually works well for my sensitive skin! Olay, indeed, keeps me looking my best beautiful every day!

But don't take my word for it. Head on to LAZADA and get your own Olay Regenerist Miracle Duo and experience it for yourself.

Charm Me With That Smile

I love off-the-shoulder tops and dresses. They are flattering on any figure, and I love that they always add elegance to even the simplest and most casual looks.

Today's outfit features this black and white skater dress from ALISONBEL. It's actually a simple short sleeved dress but by tugging the shoulders slightly to the sides, it is transformed into an elegant off-the-shoulder number and with some pearl accessories, you can head straight from the mall to a pool party! I thought I'd keep the daytime vibe by wearing my favorite white slip on wedges from CHARLES & KEITH and then stir things up a notch with this bright red rock stud VALENTINO clutch.

Now I'm all set for a tea party!
