I’m picky with skincare. You already know this if you read my HUGE post last week on skincare for 30+ skin. I am in my 30s and I have dry, acne prone skin, plus I want to target anti-aging concerns. It’s a tall order! I’m always seeking out new products to try, but most of them are pore clogging, don’t do anything, or they’re way too expensive to be a sustainable part of my routine.
Then, along came Olay. I have absolutely loved their facial wipes and they’re perfect for travel. I also love their anti-aging serum. My most recent love? Olay Whips. I am obsessed with this velvety-smooth moisturizer. It absorbs instantly, and has a unique formula which is able to absorb oils in my skin throughout the day, for a dewy (not oily) finish. Don’t you think that makes it the perfect moisturizer to transition from spring to summer?
Another great feature? It has that amazing no primer-primer feel that the really good moisturizers have. It’s lightweight but has that radiance about it when applied to skin that makes it the perfect base for any makeup look. Right after applying this to my skin, my pores appear to be minimized and my skin tone looks even and healthy.
It also has many anti-aging benefits and ingredients that not only hydrate but improve elasticity and firm skin. But my favorite thing about it? The formula is supposed to visibly reduce dark spots. I have dark spots on my skin that I know are from the sun but they intensified during my last pregnancy. They seem to darken more every summer despite my applying SPF to my face. I am really excited to see Olay Whips work over time for me because I really want to see those spots fade! I want to walk around this summer with just my SPF and not have to worry about covering these spots with concealer.
If you’re a busy mom like I am, you’ll love that you can find these on the shelves at Sam’s Club in a 2-pack. I love stocking up on products I love so I’ll never be caught without!
Do you use a moisturizer AND a makeup primer? Which one do you use? Have you tried Olay Whips?
