I have very strong memories of both my grandmother and mother using Olay products growing up, but it wasn’t until a few years ago that I too got hooked. In high school and college, I didn’t use a moisturizer because I was convinced moisturizers made my skin greasy and therefore caused breakouts. I was sorely mistaken and wish I had been whipped into *skincare* shape long ago!
I started using Olay Regenerist Whip Face Moisturizer almost three years ago now and my skin has transformed drastically. It went from being extremely oily to what most would categorize as normal skin. Did you know that not using a daily moisturizer actually makes your skin produce more oil because it is working in overdrive to try and hydrate your skin?! I had no idea.
Let me tell you about my newest best friend, the Olay Red Jar. I use this moisturizer every single day and have brought it on every single vacation the past few months. It is extremely hydrating without leaving your face oily or sticky so I can apply it in the morning without worrying that my make-up will slide off. In fact, my make-up goes on easier and smoother than it ever has when I use Olay Regenerist Whip before I apply my make-up. It functions as a primer and soaks in super fast too!
The consistency of this moisturizer is light so it is almost weightless to the touch and feel. It literally feels like your skin just consumed a tall glass of water! And just like water, my skin craves this stuff. I have accidentally forgotten to pack my red jar on a couple vacations and my skin is noticeably less hydrated. Now it is the first product I throw in my skincare bag – I won’t make that mistake again.
Another great selling factor for me is that the Olay Regenerist Whip comes in an SPF option which I normally take on vacations with me when I know I’ll be out in the sun all day. So, if you are heading on a beach vacation or just want to protect your skin at home, Olay has you covered. If you are particularly sensitive to smells like me, I also love that they make a fragrance-free option. Honestly, there is an Olay Red Jar for everyone. My mother and grandmother can attest to that too.
Whether you are just needing a new everyday moisturizer or want to pick up the SPF packed version before your next trip, I highly recommend Olay Regenerist Whip. It has the high-end skincare feels with the drugstore price and you don’t have to fly all the way to Tokyo to get it;)
