If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed that I have been obsessing over a new moisturizer this fall. It was sent to me unbranded, so I wouldn’t be swayed by the brand. All I knew is the product was called Whip.
The first time I tried this moisturizer, I could see a difference in my skin. I swear, my skin was a bit dry and irritated from playing outside with my daughters, and when I first applied this moisturizer that night, I could feel my skin soaking up the hydration. The next morning, my skin was still super hydrated and glowy, but it wasn’t heavy on my skin. I was seriously in love.
How it Feels
Fast forward a few weeks, and I was finally sent a branded jar of the moisturizer, and discovered that it was Olay’s new Whip! This new moisturizer has a very interesting texture. It reminds me a bit of a mousse, it has a light and springy feel and almost melts into my skin. You can see in the picture above the traditional Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream, which is a cream. The Whip is on the right, it’s a bit airier and is already melting into my hand as I take this picture.
Whip absorbs very quickly, and it leaves behind no greasy residue on my skin despite being very hydrating. It doesn’t feel heavy on my face at all, it just makes me feel hydrated. I love that the finish is really more of a semi-matte, which makes this the perfect moisturizer for under makeup!
A quick look at the ingredient list for the Regenerist Whip reveals why it is so gentle, but still has a lot of anti-aging power.
Niacinamide: A form of Vitamin B3 with anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory effects.
Peptides: Super gentle, peptides increase collagen production by skin cells.
I wanted to point out there are plenty of great moisturizers in this product, including Glycerin, Panthenol and Sodium Hyaluronate.
I’ve been using the moisturizer for about 6 weeks or so now, and I’m very happy with my results so far. My skin feels smooth and hydrated. I frequently have dry areas this time of year, and that isn’t the case now.
I’ve been using Olay Regenerist Whip under my makeup each day as it creates a great, hydrated base for my makeup. Usually, I’m reaching for a heavy moisturizer this time of year to combat the dryness, but then it feels heavy on my skin and by mid-afternoon I’m a greasy mess. The Regenerist Whip fixes those problems.
