Beauty Product I Am Loving: Skinceuticals Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier

I am so thankful that I am able to try out different beauty and skincare products as part of my job here on RoselynWeaver.com. We get sent tons of products; some drug store prices and some a little more expensive. I am very picky on what I share with you all because I know there are so many options out there for you guys and if you are anything like me, you have spent so much money on trying new products that don’t work so it is extremely important to me to only share products that I truly love and what truly worked or works for me.

The Skinceuticals Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier has been a game changer for my skin. Especially in this brutally cold weather and the fact that my skin has been so dehydrated lately.

Why is Hyaluronic Acid important?

In general, Hyaluronic Acid is a moisture-binding ingredient that helps keep the the skin plump and hydrated. It fills in wrinkles and promotes collagen production for long lasting youthful skin.

I have been using this since last September. I started using it religiously each day, mixing it in with my daily moisturizer and even though I immediately felt a hydrating difference on my face, I started actually seeing the results about 5 days in. I don’t know about you guys, but I call that a win!

My skin type is more on the dry side but the Skinceutical site states that this product is great for all skin types: dry, oil and combination.

Because this product is a bit of a splurge I started to cut back on my daily use so that I could make the product last longer, haha. #ballinonabudget I now use it about every 2 days and mix it in with my night cream so that my skin can fully absorb it through the night. Again, I have been using this since September so the serum has lasted some time now. You really only need about 2-3 drops added into your palm with your day or night time moisturizer.

I can’t recommend this product enough! If you try it or are already fan I would love to hear!

5 Reasons You Need To Try Olay Whips!

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!

Olay Whips Moisturizer

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.
