This is a sponsored blog post with Olay, but all opinions are my own.
Those who know me would tell you that one of my defining features is my dry skin – especially around my forehead and chin. I have dealt with flaking for years, and it is embarrassing. But so far this year, I haven’t had this problem. The reason for my clearer skin is simple – Olay Whips. Olay Whips are basically the unicorn of moisturizers. It serves to offer up beautiful moisture while also helping to even the skin tone and minimize the appearance of pores. It’s basically the perfect priming moisturizer for wearing under your makeup!
I’ve written in the past about my struggles with wearing makeup. My skin flakes too much, so to even wear foundation I have to slather myself in layer upon layer of moisturizers, which can often leave me feeling quite greasy. Or, if I don’t use enough, the foundation dries my skin out further and leaves me even flakier than before! It’s a nightmare – especially for someone who so enjoys experimenting with new makeup looks.
Winter makes all of my skin issues so much worse! The flakers are flakier, and I often notice the appearance of scaly looking dry skin patches on my cheeks and chin. Being out in the cold air exacerbates the problems, and if it starts snowing? Forget about it! In the past, my choice has been to deal with super heavy moisturizers that made my skin feel sticky or risk the dreaded flakes. Olay Whips are formulated differently. They have Active Rush Technology™ which holds and quickly releases 1000x its weight in hydration and active ingredients. It has instant absorption, mixing with the salt on your skin to immediately sink into your face and offer perfect hydration. No more greasy film, no more sticky face, and no more flakes!
I’ve been trying out the Luminous whip for the past few days and have been blown away by the instant results. Besides smelling absolutely amazing, the Luminous whip really does what it says. After spending several days at home due to a cold, my skin was suffering from the Sahara-like dryness in the air due to our central heating. My face felt tight and really dry. I applied a few dabs of the whip on my face, and in an instant my skin felt soft and moisturized. Not only that, but there was no heaviness. In fact, it felt like I was wearing nothing at all. Even my husband commented that I looked much better today, though he couldn’t quite pinpoint why.
I have decided that I’ll be carrying my Luminous whip in my purse for the rest of the season, as it is such an awesome way to get instant moisturization. When out in this winter weather, I can’t think of a more necessary part of my beauty routine than Olay Whips. You can try out your Olay Whips here: http://spr.ly/Whips-Olay11
