Olay Aquaction - 24hrs Hydration!

Sponsored Post

How long does your skincare keep your skin hydrated and moisturized? 8 hours?

10 hours maybe? I say 12 hours max, right?


Not many skincare product can deliver 24 hours hydration for your skin but the Olay Aquaction Long-Lasting Hydration range can! And if you're wondering why does our skin needs 24 hours hydration..

Other than the common known factors like harmful sun rays, air-conditioning causing dry skin and air pollution causing our skin to feel choked up and tired..

Other than those common factors, you can look at our skin like a leaky bucket. One that is constantly losing moisture to its surroundings. In fact without doing much at all, we can lose about 2 glasses of water a day by just normal breathing and evaporation from our skin!!! What the heck this is so scary!

Cox imagine how much more moisture an active woman could lose!

But the thing is out of all the water our entire body lose, we can drink water to keep our body hydrated. But what are we gonna do to keep our face from feeling dehydrated?!

That's not even the most important question! The more pressing questions is.. Sometimes we don't even know when our skin is dehydrated!

P&G scientists have discovered a second key cause of moisture loss – skin fatigue. Skin fatigue is the loss of skin energy, which leads to many undesirable changes to our skin! Including a loss of skin’s ability to hold on to moisture which cause our "leaky bucket" to become even more leaky =OO

With that in mind, i decided we need one good product that can keep our skin hydrated CONTINUOUSLY!

And that's where the New Olay AquAction with HydraLock technology brings us a new standard of hydration!!! For all of us girls to achieve “Pump-pump” bouncy skin by combating the two main causes of moisture loss for our skin!!!

What is HydraLock technology and what does it do, you may be asking!

HydraLock technology is powered by two main ingredients - WSK and Niacinamide.

Remember them as they will  be the new "IT" ingredients!!! EVEN BETTER than hyaluronic acid!!!

WSK is an ingredient from the White Jelly Leaf which interestingly, was found to be a part of legendary Chinese Beauty (四大美女之一 haha) Yang Gui Fei's beauty regime! Last time can be considered as Chinese Beauty must have transluscent fair and soft smooth skin one leh. Hahaha. And they don't even have good makeup products back then to cover up their flaws so in ancient beauty regime we trust hahaha.

Anyway WSK has been shown to outperform hyaluronic acid (which is like widely known to be the gold standard hydrating ingredient). Tests have shown that WSK outperforms hyaluronic acid, weight-for-weight, in its ability to hold water!!!

So now you know you must remember WSK! Cox it helps makes our skin less "leaky" and holds on to moisture for our skin much better for a longer period of time!

How about skin fatigue! How does HydraLock technology found in Olay Aquaction helps!

Niacinamide (another key ingredient of HydraLock Technology) helps combat skin fatigue caused by inadequate dietary systems and everyday stressors (like i mentioned, sun, dry air-conditioning etc!)

It gives skin the energy to renew itself, bringing it back to its youthful levels, which in turn enables skin to hold onto its own moisture more effectively.

So in short the two key ingredients (WSK and Niacinamide) found in HydraLock Technology in the Olay Aquaction works together to ensure your skin has aid to hold moisture better and has magic power to regenerate and hold moisture better on its own! So it's a two-prong approach!!! =DDD

Now imma try it for myself! I only have eye makeup and lipbalm on ah okay! Just washed clean everywhere else. HOLY GOD DID YOU SEE WHO'S THE SPOKESPERSON FOR OLAY AQUACTION?!?!?!? Angelababy!!! =OOO
I copy her pose how?!?!? Hahahahah.
Okay how about like this? Aiyah okay lah whatever! Hahaha.
MAJOR FREAKING LOVEEEEE THE WATER BLUE TEXTURE!!! Kinda looks like a sparkly crystal pool!!! Anyway i chose the hydrating gel cox i have normal to oily skin! So i am more suitable for something light but with powerful hydrating factors so that my skin will not feel thirsty and smart-alec-ly go produce more oil =__="
Love the subtle, pleasant and refreshing smell~!!! The OLAY AquAction Long-lasting Hydration Gel is the star product of the Olay AquAction range! This lightweight gel instantly boosts the moisture level of dehydrated skin with just one application! In fact, it continuously moisturizes and locks in water for up to 24 hours to deliver the “pump-pump” bouncy skin effect! =D
You see lah~ Very lightweight indeed! Kinda like water jelly!
If you have very dry and dehydrated skin you can use the Olay Aquaction Intensive Nourishing Emulsion! It's formulated to target skin that is easily dehydrated by delivering continuous rehydration for up to 24 hours! Its water-bonding formula continuously provides moisture, and keeps skin hydrated all-day long~

Quick fun test!
We thought we could never find out the moisture level of our skin, right? Well now we can with a moisture monitor!!! =D Watch the video below to see how well the Olay Aquaction Long-Lasting Hydration Gel perform against one of the top skin hydration product in the market over a period of 12 hours!

First i measure the level of moisture on my skin as it is with no skincare nor makeup okay. It's 31.0%! Freaking low lolol. I read on the internet anything below 40 is consider dry skin T.T

So what i did is apply brand X and Olay separately on each side of my face! One thing i gotta give it to the Olay Aquaction first is that the texture feels really nice on the face and gets absorbed really fast!

And here are the results!!!

Right after applying:

Brand X reading - 51.8% moisture level

Olay Aquaction reading - 56.4%

One hour after applying:

Brand X reading - 40.6% moisture level

Olay Aquaction reading - 50.1%

12 Hours after applying:

Brand X reading - 31.8% moisture level (almost as close to not having skincare O.O)

Olay Aquaction reading - 42.0% (WOOHOO~)

As promised!!! The Olay AquAction long-lasting Hydration Gel delivered long-lasting continuous hydration and moisture for the skin!!! =DDD In a study, 92% of the users who tried Olay AquAction agree that it leaves their skin feeling hydrated for long period!!! =D
