If I had to pick one skincare product that I think is underrated it would have to be moisturizer. I think a lot of people either don’t know the importance of using a good moisturizer or they just haven’t ever used one so why start now? I was in the latter camp until about ten years ago.
Ten years ago I was 25 years old, had just gotten my “real” job right out of college (that I’m still at today!!) and started really taking care of my skin. I finally had the means to do so and so I started reading up on all of the different skincare products (keep in mind, these were the pre-Pinterest or blog days) and why you should use them. At that point in my life I slept in my makeup every night (GROSS) and I only ever washed my face when I was in the shower. I used a toner and that was it. That was the extent of my skincare routine.
These days my skincare routine is a little more complicated but it works and my skin is so much better than it was 10 years ago! These days I use two different face washes, a toner, an eye treatment, a facial oil/serum and a moisturizer. I also exfoliate my face when I’m in the shower and mask up a couple times a week. I am very picky about the products I use, especially since I recently turned 35 (gotta take care of all of these fine lines y’all!!!), and research everything before using it. Have I mentioned how skincare obsessed I am? HA!
Back to moisturizers…so the other day I was at Kroger making my weekly grocery run when I stumbled upon the health and beauty section. My local Kroger is one of the big Kroger Marketplaces and it has a huge beauty section which I totally geek out about because it is usually loaded with the newest beauty products. In fact I discovered my favorite mascara primer at the same Kroger a few years ago!
I was perusing the body washes and hand soaps (they were on super sale) when I turned around and BAM to what do my wondering eyes did appear but the new Olay Regenerist Whip Face Moisturizer that I had been wanting to try!! If you have been on social media at all in the past couple of weeks then chances are you have seen blog reviews, video reviews or photos of this product and I was stoked to find it at Kroger because not only was it in stock but I found a coupon for it on my Kroger app!! YASSSSS! I threw it in my cart and did a happy dance.
Side note – I’m sorry to anyone who saw above mentioned happy dance, HA!
Other side note – I found my Olay Whips at the Kroger Marketplace in Benton (if you are local to central Arkansas) but you can find yours at your local Kroger or Kroger banner store!
If you have read this blog for any amount of time, or have seen any of my previous posts about moisturizers/face products in general then you know I don’t like heavy products on my face. I usually go for gel moisturizers or really light cream moisturizers but basically I don’t want to actually feel anything on my face. I don’t like my face to feel “heavy” or feel like I caked on too much product. You know what I mean? Gross!
I have been wanting to try an Olay moisturizer for a while now but was always worried about the consistency of the products. To me, Olay is a brand that’s for serious skincare needs and I have never felt like I had serious skincare needs until (you guess it!!) I turned 35. Something about that number really made me want to step up my skincare game and Olay is how I’ve chosen to do it.
The new Olay Whips are formulated differently to work and feel differently and still deliver potent skincare while leaving skin with a smooth, matte finish. Olay Whips are also available with and without SPF in Regenerist, Total Effects and Luminous. Each provide youth-restoring benefits, whether you’re looking for smoothness and firmness, tone perfection or overall nourishment.
Like the advertisements say this product is whipped to perfection! It is super fluffy and creamy at the same time and smells amazing (I am also obsessed with good smelling products)!! It goes on like a dream and dries super fast. Uniquely formulated with Active Rush Technology™ to hold and quickly release 1,000x its weight in hydration and active ingredients, Olay Whips transform from cream to liquid on contact, flash absorbing into skin. So no more fanning your face waiting on your moisturizer to dry/sink in so you can put on your makeup!
So, if you are on the market for a new moisturizer I highly suggest you check out Olay’s new Whips line! There are a couple different formulas to choose from…the Olay Regenerist Whip Face Moisturizer I got, Olay Total Effects Whip Face Moisturizer and Olay Luminous Whip Face Moisturizer. There is a formula for everyone!! And if you get one, drop me a comment and let me know how much you love it!!
