This is the Lightweight Moisturizer We’ve All Been Waiting For…

Thank you to Olay for sponsoring today’s post! As always, ALL thoughts & opinions are entirely my own.

Though I consider myself to be well-versed in the beauty and skincare departments, I have to admit that the harsh New York winters throw me for a loop every year. I’m usually flipping a coin debating whether to layer up with a thick moisturizer to soothe my dry skin, or to tough it out and avoid the greasy residues and clogged pores. I’ve got my skincare routine down pat for the three remaining seasons, but I totally dread switching over to a new regimen come the cold temps. Can any of you guys relate?

If your answer happens to be yes, you’re in for a treat today!

And what is this treat?

It’s called Olay Whip. Let me give ya’ll some background…

I recently started using Olay Luminous Whip moisturizer, and I am seriously in love. This moisturizer includes a unique Active Rush Technology™ that helps it to hold and quickly release 1000 times its weight in hydration and active ingredients. How cool is that?

What this means is that it’s not about how heavy your moisturizer is. It’s about how much the formula can actually hold…and Olay Whip can hold a lot, packing just as much or even more than some of those super heavy/greasy moisturizers out there.

So, say goodbye Felicia to all those heavy formulas…sound good?

The other great thing about Olay Whip is that it pretty much instantly absorbs into your skin. It’s literally residue-free.

Keep in mind that as I’m drafting this post I’m sitting in bed running my hands all over my face, because I still can’t believe how soft it feels and the fact that I cannot feel any residue on it whatsoever 😊

I also want to mention that this product comes in three different formulas: Regenerist, Total Effect, and Luminous. I’m currently using the Olay Luminous Whips, and I love it. But, I want you all to be aware that there are other options for different skin types and needs. All you have to do is head out to your local Giantfood and purchase the version that’s right for you!

I hope that you guys will try out the new Olay Whips collection, because it’s truly making a difference in my winter skincare routine. I never used to use moisturizers, and now I can’t imagine removing this step from my daily regimen. It’s just so important!

    I love that this comes in different formulas for different skin types. I wouldn’t be too keen to use the luminous one, so will have to have a look out for the one for oily skin. I hope these are available in the UK already! Thanks for sharing!

    • I know, I was thinking the same thing! So nice that there are options for different skin types, which a lot of brands lack.

  • The winter can have a pretty harsh effect on my skin as well, especially in the UK because the weather is so temperamental haha! Sadly I can’t use Olay as I am cruelty free but I am so pleased that it had an impact on your skin and I also have to commend you on your beautiful photography aesthetic. May I ask what camera you use? I like the pink ‘filter’ on the photos as well it is super pretty!

    • Thank you so much Ana! I really appreciate the compliment. Right now I’m using a Canon 70D with a 50mm 1.4 lens. I literally just upgraded to the 70D though, before I was using a T3i, which I honestly really loved too! xx

  • My skin gets so dry in the winter plus add the hormones of pregnancy. I’ve been trying different moisturizers and will have to take a look at this one!

    • Yes, definitely check it out — I think you’ll love it! xx

  • I like lightweight! I hate when it heavy and you just feel it. This time of year with the weather is when I wear more moisturizer

  • Ooo this Olay whips sounds soo good! My skin has been so dry lately! This really seems worth the try! 🙂

    xo, Chloe //

    • Yes, definitely! It goes on so smooth, so it really is perfect for this time of the year!

  • Rose Mont

    Anything with whip in the title is very inviting! Olay being a trusted, reliable brand doesn’t hurt either. I look forward to check this product out. Thank you for the coupon.

    • Yes, totally agree! I’d pretty much buy any Olay product that’s suited for my skin type at this point, since I’ve been having such good experiences with them.

  • La Shell Reid Hoilett

    Oh nice! I love a good light weight moisturizer. My face is already on the oily side so I tend to stick to water based skin care. I haven’t used Olay items in a long time though. Maybe I’d take another look at them. Thanks for the review!

    • That totally make sense! I used to not even use moisturizers for that same reason, but I’ve been having good luck lately!

  • Jhilmil Bhansali

    Olay, my love for Olay is known to all and having this awesome moisturizer will for sure be my pride. I needed something really good for hydrating and moisturizing my skin , more so in these winters.

  • Allison Ellzey

    I need to try this (and it’s in such a pretty jar! BONUS!)

    • I know right?! Like it’s totally Insta-worthy, ahah!

  • Alison Rost

    I live in Iowa and spent a couple of hours shoveling snow this afternoon. So I can definitely relate to how hard winter can be on our skin. While I’ve used Olay products on and off over the years, this is a new one to me. I like that it’s not heavy and also free of residues. You can bet I’ll be keeping an out for it the next time I’m at Target. x

    • Yes, definitely give it a try and let me know how you like it! xx

  • Ahhh Olay. Olay Regenerist is on my Monthly Fav Jan’18. Will try this one for sure!!! Thanks!!!!

    • Omg Olay Regenerist is another fave of mine for sure. But yes, this one’s totally worth a look too! xx

  • I love Olay products , I used them for most of my life and they are gorgeously formulated ! my tips for the winter is cleansing balms , be gentle with your skin and if is dry add some drops of oil into your favorite moisturizer

    • Such good tips!! xx

  • Winter kills my skin every single time…And the worst is that I never know what to expect. Last year my combination skin went completely oily for the winter months, yet this year my skin is more dehydrated than it ever was (maybe it has something to do with our move to a house with a weird heating’s always dry and hot in our home, i can feel it in my lungs too ). As I’m embracing green beauty this product is not really for me, but I loved how thoroughly you wrote your opinion on it. If I’d buy these kind of beauty products I’d definitely give it a go after your review.

    • Ugh, that is so tricky. I really hope you find the right fitting product soon! xx

  • Ohh I’m always on the lookout for a new moisturizer and this one looks great! Thanks for sharing.

  • Elena Stevkovska

    Lately my skin is so dry, probably because winter is the worst time of the year for skin care, so I can give this moisturizer a try.

  • Laura Dove

    Oh this is exactly what I have been needing too! I find some moisturisers far too heavy but this sounds just perfect. You can’t beat Olay!

  • Michele Dennis

    It’s actually been dryer then normal this winter here in Florida (Yes we actually participated in winter this year…lol) however I’ve never been a big fan of lotions due to that heavy, greasy feel they leave behind. I like that this is light weight and comes in different formulas for different skin types. I just might have to give this one a try!

    • I was in the same boat until recently! Definitely have changed my mind now though that I’ve tried this lightweight product! xx

  • David E

    My daughter has been looking for something to moisturize skin. And anything that ends up residue free is good in my book. I will have to show this to her.

  • Kristine Nicole Alessandra VA

    Olay has always been a brand the women in my family use. From my grandmother to me, I can attest to its effectivity in keeping skin moisturized and supple.

    • Yes, my mom loves it too! We’re always recommending the brand to friend and family, haha!

  • Alok Rana

    Winter is gone here. But this could be worth referring to some of my girlfriends. Thanks for the share.

  • Chinedu Agwu

    Wow I sounds like this Olay whip is doin the job for you! During winter and summer I just use aloe Vera gel layered with Simple moisturising cream. It’s good to identify a skincare routine that suits you. 🙂

    • Ooh, I love the simplicity of that! Definitely agree that finding and sticking to what works is so important! xx

  • Adventuresfromwhereyouwanttobe

    I love olay products, it started when I was a child watching my mum use the moisturisers each night. I will have to try Olay whip for myself

    • Yes, definitely let me know how you like it! xx
