We asked four readers to try Olay’s new dynamic duo, and here’s our first ‘glowing’ report:
How many kids: Three (9, 11 & 13 – no wonder I’m getting wrinkles)!!
Time you spend on your skincare routine: 15 minutes twice a day.
Time you would like to spend on your skincare routine: Less, but I want better results. Consequently I’ve been considering doing something more drastic.
Have you used Olay before? Years ago I used Total Effects.
Do you have any skin issues, things you want to change? I’ve got a wonderful combo of the occasional hormonal blemish with fine lines appearing, and I’m worried that I’m starting to get sagging skin.
What are your skin goals? My dream skin is soft and translucent (I didn’t realise how good my skin was before my late 30s). Since turning 40, I’ve found myself missing the glow of my younger skin.
What did you think after using the Olay Miracle Duo? I absolutely loved this product. From the first time I applied it my skin felt immediately softer and plumper. It was as if my skin was drinking in the products.
Over time, did the Miracle Duo address any of your skin issues? What were they? The wrinkles around my eyes have become less noticeable and my skin is more dewy. It’s actually a remarkable change which inspired me to continue to use the products twice a day. Since using the duo I’ve stopped wearing foundation and a BB cream provides me with enough SPF coverage.
How long did it take to notice real changes? Did anyone else notice a difference in your skin? Within three days of using the duo, a friend of mine, with whom I’ve discussed at length the pros and cons of Botox, actually asked me whether I’d snuck off to get Botox without her!
If you were to recommend the Miracle Duo to a friend, what would you say? I’ve already recommended using the products to a few friends. Hitting my 40s I’ve really noticed a difference in the elasticity of my skin and the deepening of wrinkles, these products actually made a difference. My skin actually feels softer and brighter again.
Will you continue to keep using the Miracle Duo / would you buy it again? I’ve already restocked as I really believe the products work. It’s held off my decision to do something more drastic for the foreseeable future. xx
THE MIRACLE DUO – the-need-to-know info
