Anytime I talk about skincare or makeup over on Instagram Stories, one of the questions I get asked the most from you ladies is “What’s your favorite lightweight moisturizer that works well under makeup?” and I am excited to tell you, I finally have an answer.
Are you even ready for this? The unicorn of moisturizers is Olay Whips. This is not your average lightweight moisturizer, it’s so much more. You already know I did the Olay 28 Day Challenge and am obsessed with this affordable drugstore brand, so it should come as no surprise that I was excited to try out a new line of products. Olay Whips is available in three formulas, you can choose depending on your overall skincare needs.
THE THREE OLAY WHIPS FORMULAS:
- REGENERIST: Powerful Wrinkle Results Without Heaviness
- TOTAL EFFECTS: Ultimate Nourishment Without Weight
- LUMINOUS: Lasting Radiance Without Shine
The Olay Whips formula has Active Rush Technology, this is what holds and releases all the hydration in each moisturizer. When most people think about winter skincare they think of super heavy and thick creams but with Olay Whips, it’s not about how heavy the formula feels, it’s about how much moisture it provides. This specific formula can hold a lot more moisture than others and pack a punch while still being lightweight. As soon as the hydration is released, when it comes into contact with the natural salts in your skin, it’s absorbed immediately, leaving you free of heavy build up. This makes it perfect for application before makeup.
Each moisturizer leaves your skin feeling velvety-smooth, it’s basically a primer for your makeup without being an actual primer. I’ve specifically been testing out the Olay Luminous Whip in my morning skincare routine before I apply my makeup. This is the true test, is it lightweight enough for makeup to look flawless over? The answer is yes.
The Olay Luminous Whip feels as though you’re not even wearing a product. It’s formulated with PearlOptics™ science for lasting radiance which is only going to add to the beauty of your everyday makeup routine. It actively moisturizes while at the same time evening out your skin tone and minimizing the appearance of pores. Yes, you read that right, this is a completely lightweight moisturizer that also minimizes the appearance of your pores. I could not ask for more in a product.
Whenever I set out to find a moisturizer that I’m going to wear under my makeup, I have a little test I like to put them through. Is it going to actually moisturize? Is it going to feel heavy? Is it going to make my routine easier and more effective? Yes, yes, and yes. When using the Olay Whip, you can feel free to skip a primer. This moisturizer does it all for you. You’re saving time too, just think about how long you sometimes have to wait for a moisturizer to absorb into your skin and dry down before you can actually put on your makeup. With Olay Whip, it’s instant. You can apply your makeup right away and it’s so lightweight you barely even know it’s there.
