My life has been very uneventful these past weeks, to say the least. I’ve been going out for interviews a lot lately and then  I spend the rest of my time at home watching series. I always find a reason to back out of hangouts and blog-related events simply because I really don’t feel myself lately. Not only that but I also lack the motivation to blog regularly. Oh boy. πŸ™

Anyway, when I got an email from Jergens asking if I’d be willing to take on their 7-Day Challenge, I saw it as an opportunity to get my blog rolling again.. something that would really push me to update my blog on a daily basis. A driving force, if you will.. just ’til I get my groove back on so yeah, needless to say, I gladly took up the challenge. Woohoo!

What the Jergens 7-Day Challenge is basically a set of missions emailed to participants on a daily basis and we have to update our post as we go along the missions. The missions are unknown to us. We have absolutely no idea. Period. Well, I did read other blogger go through this as well but I’m not quite sure if we have different set of missions per batch. That, we’ll have to see.

I have no idea what’s in store for me for the next 7 days but I’m really excited. Anyway, here’s what’s inside the kit sent me to help me with my 7-day mission or as I call it, my survival kit. By the way, the box it came in looks like an awesome tissue box for our car. Just a random thought. Haha.
I can’t wait to start my missions. I’ll be updating this post as I go.
Wish me luck! πŸ™‚
MISSION #1: Radiate Beauty From Within
The task was to give a bottle of Jergens lotion to a stranger but you have to understand that I live in a subdivision in the province. I rarely see any neighbor and the closest one I could find is 3 blocks from our house. I had to actively search for a person if I really wanted to come across anyone. Anyway, I chose her because she is very nice and hardworking. I thought she could use a little “me time”. πŸ™‚
MISSION #2: Left vs. Right
Today, I applied Jergens Age Defying Multi-Vitamin Moisturiser only on my left arm to see the difference. It i said to revitalize and replenish the skin with its antioxidant blend of Vitamins A, E, and C. It also restores the healthy look of dry skin, and diminishes the signs of aging.
You can’t really see the full effect on the photo above but if you look closely you’ll notice that the left arm is slight brighter. Dryness prevents light from reflecting off your skin thus making it look dull and dry. This is probably why it appears to be brighter. Jergens has its new Hydralucence Blend that instantly moisturizes skin and keeps it hydrated. No wonder it feels so soft and smooth. <3

MISSION #3: Keep Hydrated

The timing for the challenge was perfect because I was out-of-town with my college friends the other day. I was tasked to take a photo of my Jergens tumbler every time I do I refill – believe me, it was way more then 4 times but I didn’t have time to take photos of my quick refills. I tend to drink  lot of water when I’m staying outdoors.

Tip of the day: Dehydration makes your skin look dry and wrinkled. Keep drinking water to keep skin hydrated. Apply your favorite Jergens variant twice a day to lock in moisture and help reveal your most beautiful skin yet.

MISSION #4: Make Someone Smile

For today’s challenge, I’m hosting a flash giveaway to hopefully share the Jergens experience with ONE (1) lucky reader. πŸ™‚ The mechanics are on the Raffleopter widget above. This giveaway will be open for 4 days ending December 4. Announcement will be made on this post as well. The Jergens Team will send the gift pack directly to the winner. Open to Philippine residents only. Good luck! πŸ™‚
MISSION #5: Good Food, Good Skin
Here’s a personal favorite: a bowl of lettuce, carrots, singkamas, boiled eggs, cheese and Dizon’s Farms honey mustard dressing. I usually get very hungry after hitting the gym so I always prepare a bowl of this to snack on afterwards. Yummy AND healthy!
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.
MISSION #6: Nurture Relationships
 The other  day I received a Cabalen gift certificate from Jergens with a corresponding mission through text. My mission was to treat my favorite gal pal to a surprise dinner so I did. πŸ™‚ My sister and I went out Christmas shopping and we were crazy tired/hungry after the whole ordeal so we headed to Cabalen before going home. Shopping is our best bonding activity but we did have an awesome time talking and catching up over dinner. It was really fun to have one-on-one girl time with this kid. πŸ™‚
Tip of the day: As you nurture relationships, nourish your skin as well for a beauty that radiates inside and out. <3
MISSION #7: The Finish Line
The last mission was to look for a photo taken no more than 3 months ago and post it side-by-side with a newer photo after using Jergens for 7 Days. A lot of things changed since I took the photo on the left but one thing’s for sure; my skin did become less flaky and more supple ever since I used Jergens.
Jergens new illuminating Hydralucenceβ„’ blend eliminates dullness and dryness by creating a continuous layer of moisture on skin. This unique technology prevents hydration loss with a uniform moisture barrier. The smooth surface then powerfully reflects light, for more luminous skin.
Wooh! I finally finish the Jergens 7-Day Challenge. It looks easy but believe me, updating on a daily basis is no easy task but it was a lot of fun. Thank you, Jergens, for the cool missions. πŸ™‚
