As a full time working mother, I hardly have time for myself. Coupled with the fact that Aidan is sticky, and I’m a clingy mama, I hardly find time to blog, exercise or elaborate skincare routines. It’s really tough being a working mother. In addition to being a mother – which is tough enough as is! – I’m also working at the same time.
When I do things such as head out for a dinner with girlfriends or out for a yoga class, I’ll feel extremely guilty leaving Aidan behind with my husband/mother-in-law/mother. It feels like I’m neglecting him to enjoy, you know?
Same goes with say blogging at home or taking time to do elaborate skincare routines. When Aidan sees me and if I’m not attending to him, he tends to cry badly. Especially now that he is teething. He is extremely cranky.
I’m not complaining, I enjoy every moment with him. Just that, I hardly have time for myself. But yet, I feel ‘sad’ that I no longer have time for myself. My skin, nails and hair has taken such a backseat as compared to last time. I never ever had my roots grow out back then nor have I ever not indulged in a good mask weekly. Working late nights and staying up late for baby has worsened my eye bags and dark eye circles. I also find that my frown lines have deepened – this must be because I’m under constant stress and worries most of the time.
Now? I touch up my hair like once in 3 months? (in comparison to every 3 weeks back then) and I have not seen a facial mask since I gave birth. I mean, how the heck can I ever find time to lie back and relax for a good twenty minutes? LOL. I also feel that my skin has looked a tad worse for wear these days. 🙁
I was glad to have been introduced to the Olay’s latest launch, the Olay Regenerist Miracle Duo. The duo consists of the Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essense and the Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting cream.
What I like about these products is that it’s easy and fast to use.
The Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence
It’s unique auto-dropper packaging ensures the exact and right amount of pre-essence is delivered in every single application. No mess at all!
The Pre-Essence is designed to boost the penetration of anti-aging actives of your moisturiser to increase skin cell metabolism and renewal for stunning, youthful skin that looks up to 10 years younger.
The first drop starts renewal of a million surface cells and helps visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles, pores and firms the skin.
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is Olay’s most advanced and award-winning best selling Regenerist anti-aging cream.
I read that it is the result of over 50 years of Olay research and formulated with the most concentrated Amino-Peptide Complex and Hydra-Firming Complex to lift, firm and micro-sculpt your look for younger looking skin.
I used this after using the Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence! Aside from renewing the skin’s surface layer, it also helps reducing wrinkles and fine lines. It also helps hydrates the skin to help plump and firm skin! Perfect for my dry skin!
Can’t wait to see how my skin will improve after prolong usage of the products!
The Olay products that I’ve shared is available in popular stores such as Guardian and Watsons stores, and also here on Lazada!
