Let me give you a little backstory on my skin. We’ve been in a complicated relationship for some time now. Basically since those teenage years when it decided to go all high maintenance on me. After years of breakouts, I swore off moisturizer because I was convinced it was making my skin greasy and therefore causing the breakouts.
Fast forward to my mid-twenties and I am just now reintroducing moisturizers back into my daily routine. I recently had the opportunity to partner with Olay on their new product launch of Whips! I got to be one of the first few to do a blind product test without knowing the brand behind it. This was my first time to participate in something like this and I thought it was genius! Not only was it intriguing to try and figure out the brand, it took away any predispositions or prejudices so that I was able to give a complete and honest review.
For my very first take on Whip I really had to use my five senses. Ok, maybe not taste or hearing but the other three were put to good use. Smell is a big one for me as I am very sensitive when it comes to scents. Whips definitely has a fragrance to it, whereas I normally prefer facial products to be fragrance free. While I will say the smell initially made me question if I’d like the overall product, it did not end up being a deterring factor for me.
The look of Whip is different than any other moisturizer that I have ever used. Instead of the creamy consistency that I was accustomed to, Whips was almost more of a translucent liquid. Think about what coconut oil looks like. That is what Whips reminded me of!
The touch of Whip is what intrigued me the most. It truly is the most light weight and refreshing product that I have ever felt. You would have thought you just splashed water on your face and let it air dry with how refreshing this product felt. You would also think with how light weight it is that you would need a lot of it to achieve moisturized skin but you really don’t!
After using Olay’s Total Effects Whip for the past month I can honestly say that it is one of a kind. It’s ability to leave your skin feeling hydrated all day without looking greasy by the end of the day is what sold me. For someone with extremely sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts, Whip has minimized the amount of oil and grease that I deal with on a normal basis and has left my skin feeling better than it ever has!
For the longest time if you had asked me what my #1 Christmas wish was, I would have told you perfect skin! My skin still has a ways to go, but thanks to Whip, I’m happy to say that I have finally found a moisturizer that my sensitive skin LOVES and craves!
