Back to Basics: A Little Winter Skincare Secret
*This post is done in partnership with Olay, but all opinions are my own.
Back to basics today, a little fun, and a little beauty talk. With the winter months in full swing though, that adds another level to the toll on our skin. I may not be dealing with the bitter cold out here in Southern California, but we do get a drop in humidity, so I still see the change. Especially during this time of the year we sometimes need a little something extra.
Olay recently released their Olay Whips line of products. If you remember, I’ve talked about the benefits of the Regenerist cream. Let’s talk about some of the newest benefits of Olay Whips Regenerist.
So, what’s the difference here, and what is all the buzz about with this new line of Olay Whips? All of you know that I like to really look into everything that I put on my skin. After all, the skin can absorb certain particles into the body’s bloodstream, so I am always careful pay attention to the ingredients. For Olay Whips, it comes down to two key innovations in the formulation:
Active Rush TechnologyTM: This is a unique formulation that Olay has developed that holds 1000 times its weight in hydration and releases the ingredients to let you feel a difference from the moment you put it on, continuing throughout the day. The key thing for all of us, and our skincare routine is that it isn’t about how heavy the cream is that determines if it is better during the winter months, but it’s all about how much hydration it really provides.
Instant Absorption: The magical part of the Whips line when you put on the cream is it starts to work with the natural salts in your skin to get immediately absorbed, and leaves your skin residue free, unlike many of the other creams I have tried in the past, even those that carry a much heavier price tag!
What a difference this really makes, you can feel it right away as you put it on!
I won’t dive right now into all the facts behind the Regenerist line, but if you want to see all the details you can see my other post here. For the Whips version, The best part about the cream is that is effortless to use and add into my routine. I smooth it on just after I wash my face in the morning and at night after I clean off my makeup. It feels so light, almost like putting nothing on, and it is such a refreshing feel. I’ve tried many moisturizers, but this is definitely a welcomed change compared to other creams that leave a feeling of an extra layer on top of my skin.
I love that I can use a cream that provides as much hydration and protection as this does and is still be very easy on the budget too. Since I started using it just in the last couple of weeks, I seen more plump and radiant skin, and you guys have been commenting on it too. For the photo story this time I tried a few creative ideas that I think you will like, and I had the cutest little assistant to join in the fun. I hope you enjoy.
Have any of you tried the other moisturizers from the Whips line? I’ve loved Regenerist, but I’m sure the others are fantastic as well. Let me know your thoughts!
