Okay, so let’s start from the beginning. In October I was asked to participate in a skincare review for a new product launch. You all know that I love trying new products to share with you but what really intrigued me was that this would be a “blind review” meaning they wouldn’t tell us what brand was behind the product.
I thought this was genius on so many levels!
1-What a great marketing campaign to get us all excited about the product launch. I know I was so excited to find out who the brand was. The only thing I knew is the product was called Whip.
2-Not knowing the brand allowed the “testers” to provide an honest review. I have tried a product in the past from a brand and didn’t like it so that stopped me from wanting to buy anything else from that brand. In other cases if I know it’s a really expensive brand I tend to shy away from it because honestly I don’t see myself buying a jar of $400 cream in real life. This blind review took all of that thinking out of the mix. I was simply asked to try Whip for a month and see what results were in store!
To be honest with you, as soon as I opened the unbranded jar I had a feeling it might be Olay! I had already added Olay’s Regenerating Night Recovery Cream to my skincare routine so I was familiar with the scent and texture. I wanted to tell you all what my guess was and I couldn’t wait for the big brand reveal!
So, after having using Whip for a month, I want to give you my 5 honest reasons of why you should try Olay Whip.
I have the Total Effects Whip but this moisturizer is also available in Luminous and Regenerist.
1- You want hydrated skin without feeling like your moisturizer is too heavy. I have extremely dry skin, especially during this time of year. This moisturizer really quenched my skin without feeling like I had to layer the product on. It is super lightweight.
2- It’s extremely affordable. I am all about drugstore brands that work! Even when I buy them for the first time I don’t have any buyer’s remorse because I know that even if it doesn’t work I didn’t spend hundreds of dollars to try it! But I’m telling you guys. This.stuff.WORKS!
3- It’s not greasy. It’s very hard to find a moisturizer that hydrates my skin all day long without eventually looking greasy throughout the day. The mix of ingredients provide major hydration with a matte finish that helps banish that mid-day shine!
4- Visibly smooths fine lines and evens skin tone. Hello flawless skin! #wecanwakeuplikethis
5- Minimizes pores– This is so important when you just want your makeup to go on smoothly. Also after a few more weeks of using Whip you may not want to hide that beautiful luminous skin!
Let me know if you guys have tried this product yet or if you plan to. I always love to hear your feedback as well.
