Olay Whips | Primer & Moisturizer in One

Posted on Location: 3 m read

Ah, Olay Whips. After trying so many moisturizers over the years, it’s safe to say that I’ve finally found one that does everything I look for. The best thing is, I no longer have to break the bank to achieve healthy, radiant skin!***Special thanks to Olay for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.***

Ah, Olay Whips. After trying so many moisturizers over the years, it’s safe to say that I’ve finally found one that does everything I look for. The best thing is, I no longer have to break the bank to achieve healthy, radiant skin! As I get older, moisturizers that help to fight wrinkles and fine lines have become more important than ever. But, that’s just the beginning. I prefer to keep things simple, which means less product in my beauty routine whenever possible. I’m a firm believer that less is often more!

Pinit

For those of you who didn’t know, Olay Whips just launched, offering lightweight moisturizers that instantly absorbs into the skin. Long gone are the days I’d have to wait for my moisturizer or primer to dry before applying makeup. The result is a velvety-smooth, dewy finish. No oil, no residue and feeling gross for the rest of the day.

Pinit

I don’t use makeup everyday. However, when I do, a smooth, hydrated canvas is key to flawless application. When my skin is flakey and rough, the makeup ends up looking caky and uneven. Using the Olay Regenerist Whips moisturizer, I am able to skip my face primer and go straight to putting on makeup! Gotta love a good whip that plays two in one — a moisturizer and primer for under $40 USD. I wasn’t kidding when I said less is more πŸ˜‰

Pinit

I use Olay Regenerist Whips even on days I don’t wear makeup. After cleansing, I tone my face with witch hazel. Then, I apply the moisturizer all over my face and neck to achieve supple, yet matte skin. It’s so light that I often forget I even have anything on my face throughout the day. Plus, it’s incredible how baby soft my skin feels!

Pinit

I have a similar routine at night, except after applying the moisturizer I also follow up with my night eye cream and acne serum on trouble spots as needed. The great news is though, ever since switching to this moisturizer, I’ve noticed my skin clearing up a lot. I have never felt so confident leaving the house with zero makeup on! I love that I don’t need to use many different products to see positive results. From my experience, this moisturizer works just as well if not better than the ones with ridiculous price tags.

Pinit

Needless to say, this moisturizer is literally heaven in a little bottle for me. Never have I so eagerly looked forward to my morning and night routines. Cheers to many more years of confidence, youth, and radiance!

    I always moisturize my face after I shower, I so need to try for the primer effect!

      It’s amazing! I’m already about half way through the bottle and plan on getting more in the future because it’s just amazing as both a day/night moisturizer, as well as a makeup primer on days I wear makeup πŸ™‚

      Thank you Mariann! I’m glad to hear you are a fan of the Olay brand. I want to try their eye cream next! I’ve heard many great things about it. If you do give the Whips line a try I would love to hear your thoughts!

    This moisturizer sounds like heaven! Like you, I like to keep my routine simple so if I can combine a moisturizer with a makeup primer, it would be ideal. I will have to give this a look! πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing!

      It feels and smells like heaven too! I think you’d love this one πŸ™‚ xx

    I use the regular regenerist moisturiser and love how it feels on my skin! Delighted to learn that Olay came out with a new one for their whips line. Will try that one after my current one runs out! Thanks for letting us know!

    • Sharon Wu
      January 23, 2018

      I’m so glad! I am hooked onto the Regenerist although I sort of want to try the other two in the Whips line eventually too πŸ˜‰ Would love to hear your thoughts on the new Regenerist from the Whips line and how it compares to the original when you get a chance to try it!

      Thanks Helena! It’s amazing! I will definitely continue to keep using it. It’s affordable and of great quality — my skin has been better than it ever has been before even when I used more expensive products. Highly recommended πŸ™‚

      Aw thanks Stephanie! You’re the sweetest! My skin definitely has its days but this moisturizer has definitely improved my skin condition over this past month. Totally worth trying especially if you wear makeup on the regular because you can skip the primer and keep it light! Makes my makeup look so much more natural because less product is being used πŸ™‚

      You’re lucky you can get away with not using moisturizer much! I have oily skin if I had to pick between dry or oily, but I’ve just made it a habit to always moisturize anyway because I’m scared of aging hahaha.

    I have seen so many good things about this online and it looks amazing! I love so many of their skincare products, but something whipped sounds amazing! Totally need to give this a try!

    Your skin is flawless, and I love Olay products! I have one of their firming moisturizers, and this one might be perfect to upgrade to in this cold weather. Thanks so ,much for sharing, I’ll definitely be looking for this one!

    • Sharon Wu
      March 1, 2018

      I need to try the firming moisturizer still. I just bought Olay’s eye cream today and so excited to finally give that one a try. As for moisturizer though, I’m very happy with this Regenerist whips because it’s so lightweight yet moisturizing, and I love the matte finish. It’s basically like a primer but provides my skin with ample hydration! I definitely recommend it πŸ™‚
