Olla ladies, today I am going to introduce you to Olay AQUACTION Long Lasting Hydration Gel. Before going into that, have you ever wondered why we have been preached over and over again about how important it is to keep our skin hydrated? Well, this is because our skin is exactly like a leaky bucket!

It is constantly losing moisture to our surrounding. 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 – imagine how much more moisture an active woman could lose! Which is why it is very important to keep it constantly hydrated.

GOOD NEWS! 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 unwanted changes in one’s skin, including a loss of skin’s ability to hold on to moisture, causing skin’s “leaky bucket” to become even more leaky as a result. To keep skin hydrated and bouncy, skincare products need to address not one but both causes of skin moisture loss.

What makes this Olay AquAction series awesome is the fact that it helps to reduce our skin’s “leaky bucket” condition as well as skin fatigue! and how it is done? Well, To fight “leaky bucket” situation, WSK is used. Incase you are wondering, it is an ingredient from the white jelly leaf which was a part of legendary Chinese beauty Yang Guifei’s beauty regimen. It has been shown to outperform hyaluronic acid, which until now, was thought to be the gold standard hydrating ingredient.

Next is Niacinamide. It helps to address skin fatigue caused by inadequate dietary systems and everyday stressors. It gives skin the energy to renew itself, bringing it back to more youthful levels, which in turn enables skin to hold onto its own moisture more effectively. You may also check out below for the detailed ingredients.

There are 5 products for this AquAction range and AquAction Long-lasting Hydration Gel is the star products. It actually act as a moisturizer and the difference is that it is in gel texture. I like the fact that it is lightweight. It also claimed to give 24 hour intensive hydration if were used during your day and night beauty regime.

I also like how it absorbed almost instantly and it gave those cool refresh kind of feeling during applications. Plus the smell is not too intense and it give me those fresh kind of sensation. Incase you are interested, you may grab a tube at any leading pharmacies for RM 59.90 and it contained 50g of product in a tube.

Here is the fun part, great thanks to Olay for being kind enough to sponsor 5 tube to 5 of you lucky people!! Horraaay! so we could together enjoy a nice, hydrated and bouncy skin to kick start 2014 in style!  So what do you need to do to get a tube for free??
