We hear you guys! Beautiful skin is SO important and on the top of your lists as one of the most important things for you this year. Whether you are in the midst of wedding planning or just looking to take better care of your skin this year, softer skin, a better complexion and less shine are a few of your top priorities. I love trying new beauty products and thought it would be fun to share a few more of my favorites here on the site.
For today’s post, I partnered with one of my favorite brands, Olay. I’ve been using Olay moisturizer for probably the past 8 years or so?! Before 2 weeks ago, I had been using the Olay Regenerist Micro-Scuptling Cream each night before bed for the past 2 years. Love it. So, when they reached out to me to try their newest moisturizer Olay Whips (which had already won a Beauty Award from People magazine in 2017), I was totally game. :)
Why am I recommending Olay Whips for dry skin? Well, the most important thing for skin is to moisturize. Moisturize. Moisturize. Moisturize. :) My skin has been SOO dry this winter (thanks Santa Ana winds!!). I’ve been applying the Olay Luminous Whip right after my morning shower and then again at night after I wash my face. I’ve only been using the cream for 2 weeks and I can already see a difference. Softer skin and less shine. Win Win.
A bit more about Olay Whips and why I’m loving it! The look is different than my normal moisturizer in that instead of the creamy consistency, Whips is almost more of a translucent liquid! It feels very light weight – and smells like coconut! Major bonus. :) They named this line Whips because it has a light as air finish and leaves no trace on your skin. It has a matte-like finish that leaves your skin feeling silky smooth. It goes from a cream to a liquid, instantly absorbing into your skin so you don’t feel weighed down by the product.
Olay calls Olay Whips the Unicorn of Moisturizers!
And why is that? Well, not only does it offer powerful hydration, it also:
• Instantly absorbs into your skin (so you don’t have to wait for it to dry before applying makeup).
• Contains a unique formula, which is able to absorbs oils in your skin throughout the day, for a dewy (not oily) finish.
• Leaves your skin feeling so velvety-smooth, it’s like the no primer primer.
Since we are talking tips for helping with dry skin, I think it’s also very important to mention to drink more water! I know everyone says this, but it’s so true and so important. I’m trying hard to drink more water this year – and one easy tip to help with this? Use a fun water bottle! I love using this blush pink bottle. :)
If you are looking for a new moisturizer to try this season, and want your skin feeling hydrated all day without looking shinny by the end of the day (and minimize the appearance of pores!), I definitely recommend giving Olay Whips a try.
