The Part of My Skincare Routine I Never Skip

Olay Whips Skincare Review

If you all have been following along on Instagram, I recently chatted about how I was part of a blind skincare test along with a few other bloggers.  We each received a little jar of cream with only the name Whips on it to test out for a week before being introduced to the brand. This way we could really get a feel for the product – all bias aside. After truly falling in love with Whips, we then discovered it was made by Olay! Today I’m chatting all about this oh-so-luxurious whipped moisturizer, how it falls into my everyday routine, and why I think it stands out from the crowd.

What sets Olay’s Whips moisturizer apart is the fact that it has a lighter than air finish. I’ve tried quite a few different moisturizers before and no other brand has ever felt so lightweight on my skin. It’s also made with an Active Rush Technology that transforms the cream to help it to absorb into your skin instantly.

I always apply moisturizer after I wash my face and before I put my makeup on each morning. I can’t imagine applying concealer or foundation without a layer of moisturizer on underneath. Some days I may forget to apply my serums & under eye creams, but I never forget to moisturize. Whip keeps my skin from drying out and leaves it feeling fresh all day long!

Smiling big because my face feels sooooo good! By using Whips every day, my skin not only feels more moisturized but it feels healthier too. Plus, the older I get, I’m realizing more & more the importance of a good skincare routine.

PS: Thought I’d take this opportunity to share a few snaps of my master bedroom while I was at it! We threw this gallery wall together this summer as sort of an homage to our time in Texas. I love how all of the photos tell sort of a story together. Plus, the gold hardware from the dresser combined with my decor accents + frames just give me all the feels!

But back to skincare! Olay Whips comes in three different varieties: Total Effects, Regenerist, & Luminous. Whips Total Effects is formulated with Vitamins C & E, delivering seven benefits at once. To share a few, it replenishes nourishing moisture, evens skin tone appearance, enhances brightness, visibly smooths fine lines, minimizes the look of pores, restores firmness and visibly reduces dark spots. (Talk about everything you’d need in one tiny jar!!) You can find all three Olay Whip Moisturizers at Target for less than $30!

PS: What do you guys think of seeing a peek into my home? I treat my home decor purchases with just as much thought as I do my fashion ones. And I feel like the overall vibe in my decor style is similar to what I wear too. Would you all be up for more home decor posts in addition to fashion, travel & beauty? If so, that’s a niche I’d love to start exploring on here!

And as always, thanks for stopping by the blog today. And thanks to Olay for sponsoring this post. All opinions are always my own. Thanks to you all for supporting the brands that make Lone Star Looking Glass possible!
