Since I began traveling a ton at the beginning of the year, my skin has taken quite the beating. Between falling asleep for hours on end on flights with my face full of makeup, to forgetting my facial cleansers and having to use hotel soap to clean my face for a week, saying I’m tough on my skin is a bit of an understatement. Even though I have a dark, even skin tone, I’ve always struggled with keeping my skin hydrated without it feeling super greasy. That’s why when Olay reached out asking me to be a part of their Olay Luminous 28-day challenge, I hopped all over it.

For the #Olay28day challenge I was asked to use four products from their Olay Luminous collection: The Olay Luminous Micellar Water, The Olay Luminous Miracle Boost Concentrate (hands down –  my favorite beauty product ever, but we’ll talk more about that later), The Olay Regenerist Overnight Mask, and The Olay Luminous Light Hydrating Lotion. Since I was going to be traveling a bit during the challenge, I purchased clear 3oz. travel bottles to put a bit of the Olay Regenerist Luminous Overnight Mask and the Olay Luminous Micellar Water in since I never check a bag and wanted to be sure I had the whole product line with me. From day one, I could tell there was something different about these products. When I first tried the Olay Luminous Micellar Water, I have to admit I was a bit skeptical. I’ve always had awful experiences with products that “claim” they can remove your makeup while leaving your skin soft and hydrated- but the Micellar Water did just that. I love how it cleanses my skin without that rubbing alcohol type of feeling other products have.

I’ve become completely obsessed with the Olay Luminous Miracle Boost Concentrate- it’s become my favorite skincare product! It’s designed to work with the Light Hydrating Lotion and fades the look of dark spots and uneven skin tones. It goes on after the Micellar Water and before the Light Hydrating Lotion and it’s a must when using this regimen. I swear by it! The Olay Luminous Light Hydrating Lotion has become my new go-to for keeping my skin hydrated. It’s the only face lotion I’ve come across that doesn’t leave your skin feeling clammy the moment you step out into the summer sun. I’ve never been much of a face mask girl, but the Olay Regenerist Luminous Overnight Mask has definitely changed that for me. I love that it doesn’t require you to wash it off, but that it absorbs into your skin throughout the night.


I couldn’t be more happy with how my skin has changed using the Olay Luminous product line! For years, I’ve struggled to find high-quality African American skincare products that wouldn’t put a huge dent into my wallet, and with these Olay products, I’ll never have to struggle again. I don’t remember the last time my skin had this healthy, bright glow to it. If you have dark skin and deal with any ashiness or unevenness, please pick up Olay Luminous next time you’re shopping- you won’t regret it! Or better yet – head to the Olay website for their limited-time offer!
