Challenge Accepted—Jergens' 7-Day Challenge

Hello loves!

I'm on a mission. And it will run for the next seven days. Curious to know more? Well I certainly am!!! I just received this package from Jergens last Monday and I can't wait to start!


I was sent a challenge to complete a mission daily for seven days. They will be sending me an email or SMS for that particular day regarding my quest and I will be updating this post everyday regarding the progress of my missions.

But what is inside the Jergens kit? Well, take a look at these beauties.


These items are the tools I'll be using to complete each challenge. Interesting, right? 

It's been a while since I last used Jergens and I can't wait to try them out again and have more beautiful, healthier looking skin!

So tune in tomorrow to see what happens! Get updates regarding my journey by checking this post daily! :D

-----------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 1

RADIATE BEAUTY FROM WITHIN

For your first mission, we want you to radiate beauty from within.  Take a bottle of Jergens from your welcome pack and share it with a complete stranger. Tell us why you chose that person and share with us her reaction when she received your gift, and post a photo of her with her Jergens bottle.

 I was supposed to do this mission yesterday but I was already at work when I received the mission and didn't bring the bottle with me. I had work during the day and a class in the graduate school until 9pm so I got home late already and quite tired because of the long day. So today, I made sure that I have my bottle of Jergens with me so that I can walk by the streets of España and find the person who I can give the product to to brighten up his/her day.

I was thinking of giving the bottle to one of our lady guards but I didn't see one during our lunch break. So I just went out of the campus and saw Ate Carmen. She's one of the vendors we often go to to buy drinks and snacks. I usually bring my baon so I rarely buy food from her but she's really nice. My officemates told me that she even let's them make "utang" or just let them get the food and pay her later. How can you not be a loyal customer? Haha!

Anyway, I think she deserves a nice treat and so I chose her to receive the bottle of Jergens that I have. :D

Ate Carmen with her new bottle of Jergens Age Defying Lotion

I approached Ate Carmen and gave her the product. She was surprised and happy to receive the lotion. I asked if I could take her picture and she was so "game" to pose for the camera. It seems like she was really happy to receive this gift and I also am glad that I am the one who gave it to her. This really gave me a warm feeling inside because I made someone's day happier, especially since the season of giving is right around the corner.

Hope you enjoy your Jergens Lotion, Ate Carmen! And I hope you get that healthier, more beautiful skin! :D


And that makes my first mission COMPLETE! I am so ready to receive my next one!


-----------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 2

LEFT vs RIGHT

Apply the new Jergens only on your Left arm and leave the right arm bare for the meantime.  Take a photo of both arms, comparing the two and tell us your observations. 


The second mission is pretty easy. I just took my Jergens Daily Moisture Lotion and applied it on my left arm. Below is the picture of how my arms look like.

Left: with the Jergens Daily Moisture Lotion
Right: bare arms

These are my observations after I applied the lotion:
- It smells really GOOD!
- The lotion is thick but once it dries and gets absorbed on skin, it doesn't feel sticky.
- I don't think I suffer from dry skin but after application, my left arm just feels smoother and softer instantly.

And that's ends my mission! Challenge number 2 is complete!!! YATTA!!!

-----------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 3

KEEP HYDRATED

Water is good for your body and helps keep your skin healthy and looking young as well.  Drink only water for today using your Jergens tumbler.  Post photos with a time stamp every time you do a refill.


This mission is pretty easy. I'm currently on a diet and I've cut down the amount of food I usually eat. I drink a lot of water so that I don't get hungry fast so I always have a glass of water next to me.

That's why I'm happy that I got a new tumbler from Jergens too! I have a new drinking buddy! Haha! Anyway, here are the photos I took of the tumbler whenever I refill it with water. :D

 I woke up late but when I had breakfast, I drank 3 tumblers full of water. 

 Lunch time but still quite full since I ate breakfast late so I drank only water. :P

It's a hot day today! It's a must to drink plenty of water!


 After dinner, did a couple of refilling again. 

 Finally, probably my last tumbler of water for today! :P

It's important to drink the right amount of water! It keeps your body healthy and also makes you look better! ;) When you're hydrated, you feel and look younger! 

And that makes my third mission COMPLETE! Wooot!

-----------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 5

HEALTHY HABITS

A healthy diet is needed to keep your body strong and your skin beautiful. Share with us a family recipe using  ingredients that are good for the skin.

(Tip of the day: Jergens Moisturizers work hand in hand with a healthy diet and exercise in keeping your skin stunningly beautiful. Apply your favorite Jergens variant twice a day to reveal your most beautiful skin)

Hmm... I don't think I have learned any "family recipe" because we grew up with our kasambahay's cooking. My mom was very busy to cook for us so we didn't get to learn much of the food her parents and siblings used to eat. But that doesn't mean we (my sibs and I) don't cook. We actually love experimenting with food. We usually check recipes online or read cook books then add a little personal touch on some of our cooking. Here's one that I love to cook because it's fast to do, healthy (I think), and delicious!

Tomato-Eggplant Pasta

Things you'll need:
(We're not pretty strict on the measurements, it's always a trial-and-error for us. Haha!)

6 tablespoons Olive Oil
2-3 tomatoes
1-2 eggplant/s cut into squares
3 garlic cloves (I tend to add more because I like mine garlic-y)
Salt and pepper to taste
Finely chopped basil
Optional: Cheese (Feta but you can also try cheddar for a saltier and creamier taste)
Optional: Spanish Sardines or Tuna
Optional: Cayenne Pepper
1/4 kilo pasta (spaghetti)

Cook the pasta by boiling it with salt and oil. Add the tomatoes in the boiling pot and remove them once they start to look like it's gonna explode! Haha! Kidding! Just remove them when the skin starts to peel.

On a frying pan, heat your olive oil then add the garlic. Toss in your eggplants and stir until it gets a little soft. Then add your tomatoes and squish them so the juice will come out. Add the basil and the other optional ingredients such as cheese and the sardines or tuna. Just add salt and pepper depending on how you like it. If you like it spicy like I do, you can also add some cayenne!

Finally, toss in the cooked pasta and mix them together!

Easy as 1, 2, 3! Yay! 
I'm not sure if this is to your liking because this is just one of our experiments but so far, all the people who have tried it liked it (I hope). Haha! The ingredients are simple and easy to find and we all know that tomatoes are good for the skin because it's rich in lycopene. So I hope you'll like this in case you've tried it out. :D

And mission 5 is now COMPLETE! Yayyy!


-----------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 6

NURTURE RELATIONSHIPS

Something's in the mail! We're sending you Cabalen GCs—use them to treat your mom or your fave gal pal to a surprise lunch or dinner.

(Tip of the day: As you nurture relationships, nourish your skin as well for a beauty that radiates inside and out.)

 Yesterday, when I got home, I did get something from the mail and those were the GC's for the sixth mission!

So I talked to my mom right away and asked her if she wanted to dine out the next day. We both have work the whole day that day so we agreed to meet late in the afternoon and go eat dinner at Cabalen, West Ave., Quezon City.


Since the price for each person is only Php 298.00, we decided to bring along my bro. It became a family bonding! Now I miss my sis who's out of the country. It would've been nice if we were all having dinner out!


And that's us after stuffing ourselves with Filipino cuisines. It's been a while since I ate at Cabalen (like 10 years?) and I still like their Crispy Kangkong. I enjoyed their desserts as well! So if you want to go and eat your heart out at a buffet full of Filipino food but have a tight budget, then why not try it here at Cabalen? It's a good and affordable place to eat out with your friends and family. :)

And that's my 6th mission! Yay! One more to go before I complete all challenges! Yayyy!

-----------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 7

THE FINISH LINE

Look for an old full body photo of yourself taken in the last 3 months. Then, take a new photo in the exact same pose, this time holding the Jergens variant that you have been using n the past 7 days.

Oh dear. This is supposed to be an easy task but I've been browsing my photos both in my laptop and my phone and I just don't have any full-body shots. I guess I just don't like seeing how big I am. Haha! Anyway, I do hope that these photos I posted are okay.


So I tried to copy my smile as much as I can. I do have much more makeup on the older photo though. 

The variant I am holding is the Jergens Daily Moisture Lotion which I use twice daily. What I can say about this is that it really does hydrate your skin. My skin feels soft and smooth after application. This is thick in consistency but it's not sticky once it gets absorbed by the skin, which doesn't take a while at all. I also like the smell of Jergens products so I just love how I smell before I start the day and before I go to bed.

And my seventh and final mission is COMPLETE! Yay! I'm glad I was able to accomplish all of the seven challenges. The whole experience was fun and I'm glad I rediscovered how good Jergens is in achieving that smooth, soft, and healthy-looking skin!



Cheers,
DAWN

  1. I take care of my skin by applying lotion at night. I don't apply it in the morning because of how sticky it feels. I think Jergens can help me make applying lotion in the morning a habbit!

    I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables to help my skin improve but I also have a bad habit on eating on fastfoods/streetfoods and drinking coffee. Jergens will help me to improve my skin the faster and also a safe way that will not harm my skin.

    "How do you take care of your skin and how can Jergens improve your regimen more?"

    Being a health-conscious, I always give my skin the best care ever! Hydration is important to the skin so I drink at least 8 glasses of water per day.I also use sunscreen before going out to protect my skin against the sun's harmful UV rays, especially in the afternoon. I also eat well-balance diet, more on fruits and vegetables, to give my provide my skin enough nutrients that it needs. Sleeping for at least 8 hours is also essential; eventhough my work is usually at night, I make sure that I will recharge myself after duty and pamper my skin before anything else. I also take multivitamins and Vitamin E to give myself extra protection and make my skin more refresh with a radiant glow! I'm very meticulous with the products that will apply on my skin so I make sure that they're hypoallergenic and non-comedongenic.
    In order to improve my regimen and as part of my skin pampering habits,I use Jergens original Beauty Lotion regularly.It offers everything that I need to keep my skin soft and well-moisturized! Actually since I love the its smell, I bought a big one (500 ml) instead of the small bottle recently! Honestly, I noticed a great difference before I started using it and now that I'm applyinhg it daily on my skin! I also posted some photos on my IG with my Jergens Lotion.
    Jergens has illuminating Hydralucence blend and cherry almond essence that is perfect for my dry skin! Lastly, it's Dermatologist tested, so I would never ask for anything more!

    Thank you for hosting this giveaway Peachy Pink Sisters and to Jergens dor sponsoring the prize. :-)

    I am really guilty of not taking care of my skin most of the time. I just eat healthy as much as I can because it will also help me and my baby for I am a breastfeeding mom. I see to it that I have an umbrella in my bag to protect me from harmful sun rays. But, I fail to drink water often so I'll work on that.
    Jergens can help my regimen more for I've read above based on your observation that it will make the skin smoother and softer instantly. That, I bet, will make me feel good and beautiful.

    I mostly do it the natural way like drinking lots of water, regular use of facial wash, plenty of sleep and eating the right kinds of food. With Jergens like their Skin Firming Toning Moisturiser, it can help me maintain a firmer and younger looking skin.
