Hey girl!

When I started my beauty enthusiasm, I admit that I became addicted to make-up. But as I go along with my beauty journey, I learned that skincare products are more important than any make-up product on rack. I learned to love my skin more than to apply make-up. That it is essential to invest in my skin first before indulging into different formulation s of make-up. Little by little, I tried to be much more inclined in achieving a good skin than buying more than what my face needed. Skin care products varies in each targeted action in helping our skin maintain its natural glow. 

Most of the skincare products are expensive and promises a long term results. You will not instantly notice some of its effects in a matter of days until you take the maintenance skincare regimen. Well, not everybody can afford every skincare products on the market and cannot take the risk of spending much without the real results. When I learned about this overnight ritual from Olay, I was full of excitement to take the #5nightschallenge to see how really effective its promises. Together with Sample Room, I was able to score this night skin care regimen. Find out how my overnight ritual challenge goes.

Let me first introduce the products that I used in this overnight ritual.

Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream

An anti-aging cream that helps to keep the skin firm and retain its youthful glow. It effectively gives a boost of hydration on the skin. It is specially formulated with Amino-Peptide Complex that penetrates the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

How to use:
  • Using your finger tips, massage a small amount on the face and neck in upward circular motion, focusing on areas like the brow and jaw line, which need more support.
  • Use morning and night.

It is beautifully packaged in a jar, big enough to accommodate a month or more of product use. It has a thin seal after you opened the jar so that the product will not be expose and easily contaminated which is good. What I didn't like much with lightweight cream product in a jar is that it can easily be spilled out if you or someone carelessly push it off side wards. In the lighter note, thank goodness the scent is heavenly and pleasant to use.

As you can see, it is one of the best selling product of Olay. It is quite expensive at 1,699 pesos. But of course, it will not be that costly if it will not be worth that much considering it is also one of their best selling product. What it claims? Just see the photo above. The timeline shows almost a month of skin regimen that promises to reduce years of wrinkles. Goodbye wrinkles! and let's say hello to the next product.

Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-essence

A youth booster that energizes and strengthens the skin. It promotes easy absorption of skincare products. It penetrates skin layer up to 10x. It instantly improves hydration. After a continued 4 weeks use, it improves the skin barrier function by 20%. 

I was delighted to try this miracle boost essence. It comes with the dropper that has a pump button to dispense the product. I liked that the pump can be controlled easily. There was no waste of any drop of the essence. The scent smelled like a hair treatment chemical not so precious but also not too disturbing. It has a light texture that blends immediately. 

How to use:

Apply product twice a day after toner, and before serum and moisturizer. Un-screw the cap to automatically draw product into the dropper. Press the pump button to dispense. Apply product onto the face, avoiding the eye and lip area. Tighten the cap after use. For ideal results, apply two pump dosage per use.

Caution: Avoid contact with eyes. Discontinue use if irritation occurs. 


With the combination of these two, it claims to have a better regimen result. We can't deny it, gone are the days that we all have a goodnight sleep everyday. Working time, outside stressors and aging are imminent.

Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-essence and with Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream comprises the Olay night skin regimen. It worked together with advanced anti-ageing formula that helps renew skin cells and bring  out the youthful glow visibly by reducing wrinkles and keeping the skin firm and plump.

What does it contains?

  • PAL-KTTKS (amino peptides): Shown to work with the skin’s daily rhythms, allowing it to perform at its youthful peak to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and increase skin elasticity
  • Niacinamide: Increases skin energy to bolster skin resilience against environmental stressors such as UV exposure and accelerates the renewal of surface skin cells
  • OliveM: adds extra fortification properties, stimulating skin’s Antioxidant Response Element (ARE) that acts as a master switch, triggering a cascade of built-in environmental defenses
  • Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerol: Seals in moisture, for softer-plumper skin

I was one of the many who accepted the Olay #5nightschallenge to see how it can help me improve my skin's elasticity and moisture. I learned to take good care of my skin by keeping it clean and moisturize.  I usually shift to different creams and serums every time depending on what my skin needs. The only maintenance I have on my face that remain constant was the cleanser. You might thought I am still young to combat wrinkles but aging doesn't stop and what we can only do with it is to delay it coming.  I am in this challenge to see how this skin regimen worked to renew skin cells day by day. Let's see!

How to use the #NightRitual:

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. 

Here are my day by day results using the night ritual twice a day at morning and night. As I noticed, my face felt firm and moisturized. Since I still don't have wrinkles (thank you Lord!), I have nothing to compare if it actually visibly reduce it. But, I hope my usage of this product already prevent it from coming. Another thing I noticed after using these products on 5 days, I had a minor breakout. I don't want to blame it all to the products but I rarely have a breakout that is why I am thinking that it does triggered something on my face. But nothing major happened, I still continue to use this until a month. Of course, I will need to update you on this. Now look at my photos from Day 0-5, I used same camera on all photos but the lightning is different because it is taken not on the same spot at home.

Thoughts on Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-essence

The serum is sure to be easily absorbable by the skin. The pump dropper makes it hassle-free to get the products from the bottle. Though, I didn't love much the scent of the serum because it smells like a hair chemical for me but it is bearable. It is non-sticky and blends well on face.

Thoughts on  Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream

An ample amount of this cream is enough for me because it feels quite heavy on the face. The scent is lovely. It can easily be distributed on the face. After application, it felt like it seals in and leaves a barrier on the face. With the small amount needed in every application, this one  elegantly packaged tube goes a long way.

Let's talk again on my next blog.
Yes, YOU lovely gorgeous.

Love yourself because you are beautiful.

Hugs and Kisses,

Princess Mikee

  1. I personally love Olay products because they really deliver on what they promise. Thanks to them I also discovered that it is best to start a regimen for anti ageing as early as 25. So far not as much wrinkles as my friends. The regen variant though I think is for an older segment but I will try to use it too eventually or perhaps Sk II

  2. It's nice that you find these Olay products suitable to your skin. :) I agree good skincare products are expensive, but hey you're paying for quality right? I hope to see before and after photos of using this product after a month as well.

  3. I'd rather pay for expensive skin care products that are effective rather than waste little money on disappointing products. Thank you so much for sharing this! I agree, skin care is a must and an investment. I agree with the first commenter, let us see the effects after using it after a month.

  4. Great that you have found skincare that you like. I have never used olav before. It would be good to show the pictures of the product after one month :)

  5. Then better getting the two; it's a great deal! So far, I am hearing really good reviews about Olay and how it maintained its anti-aging feature. Love the photos you had for monitoring. :)

  6. I think I need this kind of product. I heard Olay's product are really effective and base on your picture, it is. By the way, I like how you showed day one up to 5. Very dynamic!

  7. very comprehensive review i must say.. i have been a user of olay products, although i prefer organics, there are just some from olay particularly that i cant leave without.

  8. I know Olay is a very good brand and they made good quality skincare products. I like that their products are friendly with sensitive skin also.

  9. That's a good deal you got there! Btw, Olay is really a good brand and its products are trust-worthy. Those are really good investments. :D

  10. I read a lot of reviews about this product already and so far, yours is the most detailed and more results. Good for you. I'm so convinced in trying this product already. Thank you.

  11. Your pores look tighter after the application. I am still on hold in using such products because I'm currently preggo. I wish to join the challenge but I just cannot, I read some chemicals from their ingredient and I don't want to risk using it with my pregnancy.

  12. Nice, looks effective. I use Masters and changes can't be seen this fast. Are their products specially for men by Olay?

  13. I don't know other people who use this product but I gues I'll start to recommend it to others now.

  14. I didn't know that Olay regenerist is also good for 20s! On the other hand, I also trust Olay. It's just that I haven't used the regenerist one. Good that it works for you.

  15. I'm still 19 but I am already thinking of using anti-ageing products as early as now! I personally love to use Olay products and this one might be worth a try. :) I noticed that you were certainly glowing on the last pic! :)

  16. Got so lucky to have the same kit from an event last February! Definitely a must-have and a worth it beauty kit! :)

  17. Your skin looks young and you are glowing. Glad it works on you. Will try this soon

  18. Olay never fail to impress me. This made me wanting to buy my own.

  19. It was really pricey but if it's for skin regimen, why not! Im not yet in the age of having anti-aging products splurged on my face. But when im in the right age, would definitely go for olay too. Glad you found the right skin care products for you

  20. Excited to find out more about the results from other people. I think your skin looks softer afterwards!

  21. Not really a fan of Olay after reading the ingredient label, I have sensitive skin so only 100% natural and organic products for me. Does this brand have a natural skin line that would fit me?

    1. I am not sure Anne. Surely, you got to find a product that best suits your skin. :D

  22. Same with Anne V.,I'm also not a fan of Olay. Though even if it's expensive, Olay really is effective. My aunt is using it religiously and I can say, wow!!!

  23. I miss getting my sample in Sample Room but anyway, these products are the bomb. Olay has been known for it's best. Hope you enjoyed and love the product!

  24. I love the Olay Regenerist line. It really does work!
