For as long as I can remember, I have used Olay products. First my grandmother used Olay, then my mom, my sister and I started using their daily lotion at around 13 years old. When Olay reached out to me back in October to collaborate, I was actually speechless (and that’s a rare thing for me 😉 ). I did the 28-Day Challenge with two Olay products and you can read the post (HERE). Since then, I have transitioned almost all of my skin products to Olay—I have always used the lotion and face wash, but now I also use the makeup remover, toner, serum and both day and night creams (I told you guys I was a true fan!). One of my 2018 resolutions was to make my skincare a priority. No more falling asleep in makeup or forgetting to apply lotion, but I also wanted to start off my day the right way, and that was with applying sunscreen to my face.
Did you know that even though 2/3 of women know they should wear SPF daily, only ⅓ actually do. Now I know what some of you are thinking. Sunscreen? No thanks, I’m happy being in that 2/3 category, and for a long time I felt the same way. I wanted the extra tan skin, I felt like I didn’t need to apply anything beyond a 8 SPF (YIKES!) because I rarely burned, and also I was extremely lazy with my skincare.
Once I hit my mid-twenties I noticed a huge shift in my skin. I started breaking out more, my skin felt drier and I also welcomed a handful of new beauty marks and wrinkles to my face. I knew that I needed to start making small changes in my skin and makeup routine if I wanted to keep my face in tip top shape. I switched my day face lotion to Olay Regenerist Whip with SPF 25, and I felt like I was checking off two of my skincare resolutions in one. It doesn’t feel like sunscreen and it is extremely hydrating and super lightweight.
In the past when I’ve tried face sunscreens they smell like the pool, feel thick or greasy and I couldn’t imagine wearing it all day long underneath my makeup. But with Olay Regenerist Whip, my relationship with sunscreen has changed. In the morning I wash my face, apply toner and serum (all Olay products that you can purchase below), and then I put on the Regenerist Whip and I can instantly feel the hydration. I have noticed a significance difference in my skin after using Olay products—it appears brighter, smoother and overall healthy complexion. The lotion provides UVA/UVB protection in the formula, and since I spend so much time outside walking around or traveling, it’s an extra layer protection I don’t even have to think about. It has Active Rush Technology, which holds and releases 1000x it’s weight in hydration, instantly absorbing into the skin, so it feels light and moisturizing. It also blends with all skin tones, leaving no oily or sticky residue.
I can’t even begin to explain how grateful I am to work with a company in which I truly love their products, trust their formulas and believe that their products work for a large demographic of women. If you have any questions about the Olay Whips with SPF, check out more info (HERE) on the Olay website, and message me or comment below if you have any specific questions about my skincare process. You can purchase your Whips below, along with the other Olay products in my current skincare routine. I can’t wait to see you all try the Olay products—here’s to happy, healthy and hydrated skin! xo
